The Gift of Healing- The Tools of Healing 9-23-18
‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.(the anointing) In those days I will pour out my Spirit on those who are serving me
But YOU will receive power (the anointing) when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
In the last days I will pour out my spirit (Anointing) Fresh infilling of Holy Spirit

I want to continue to “stirring your faith”
Today I want to show you another video
We have seen many healings at Celebration – did not video them
As I said, the world says “show me don’t just tell me”
When you see a manifestation of the Holy Spirit it causes your faith to rise
Last week I showed you a video in a church service by a Pastor
Today I want to show you a video out in the streets by non clergy- regular people
This is going to be a common experience in the days ahead- Through you!

It’s the work of the Holy Spirit

The Gift of Healing
To you and through you
Let me begin
The Lord’s first instruction to His disciples was
“heal the sick”
These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: … 7 As you go, preach this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven is near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons.
- After His resurrection, there is no record of the Lord healing anyone
- During the 40 days between resurrection and ascension His ministry was preparing His disciples to continue His ministry
Immediately after Pentecost we see believers
- healing the sick
- raising the dead
- casting out evil spirits
Scriptural basis for healing
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. .. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; …. they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
Notice Jesus says
All who believe in me
Generally it is after the Baptism in the Holy Spirit that this occurs (Day of Pentecost)
The faith of the believer is increased
Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth
