Conquering Your Demons

Conquering_Your_Demo_Cover_for_Kindle
NEW BOOK!!! This will help you.

I have never been one to believe that there was a demon behind every tree, and I am still of that persuasion, but there are times when I question the possibility of that belief. I have also heard some of my friends say, “The Devil made me do it!” and knew that they were just laying the blame for their choices at the feet of a demon. I also experienced a time or two when I was tempted to say, “You come out of that demon right now, and quit tormenting it!” I have dealt with many demons and they have all had the same purpose; to steal kill and destroy. They will tempt you and take you, if they can.

There may not be a demon behind every tree, but there was a demon in the Garden of Eden, behind the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil, when Eve walked up. In fact he was the first demon. His names include Lucifer, Satan, the Devil, the Enemy, the Serpent, the Great Dragon, and the Accuser of the brethren. Through the prophet Ezekiel, God the Father describes him like this:

Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so… Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. (Ezekiel 28:14-15)

When God made the Angels he made them in the heavens as beings of spirit and light. God refers to them as the sons of God when he spoke to Job.

Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind…”Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me if you have such insight. Who determined its dimensions? …Who laid its cornerstone when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy? (Job 38:1-7 GW)

As beings of his inception, they were created by him, through him, and for him. Yet he created them to have a choice. Although angels must agree with their creator to exist they were given the ability to choose. How that works I don’t know, but nonetheless, God said Lucifer was perfect from the day he was created until iniquity was found in him.

There are many words to describe how an angel in heaven can enter the sin of iniquity and violence fill his heart; but I don’t have time to discuss that revelation in this book. Jesus said,

You are the children of your father, the Devil …there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he is only doing what is natural to him, because he is a liar and the father of all lies. (John 8:44 GNB)

Therefore, lies are at the root of the spirit of iniquity. As you know, a lie is not always dark and grungy. A lie spins the truth to serve self and self’s ambition.

Lucifer was discontent with his created place as the anointed (he was given an anointing) cherub (he was given a position of purpose) that covered (he was given a place of authority) in the tabernacle in heaven, and he wanted more. What more could he want? He declared his desire to be like the one he saw; to be like God. (Isaiah 14:14) What could be better than being like God and have worshippers? All of his focus was for his own advancement, with no regard for what it would cost the angels or the humans who chose to follow him. It was in this state of ostentatious self elevation that he conceived the slyest lies. When an angel chose to follow Lucifer, he lost his eternal place in heaven and the eternal estate given to him by God.[1]

Lucifer was convinced that the best thing for him was to promote himself to be like God by converting angels into his followers and worshippers. This was a very seductive and enticing scheme that stands at the very core of the sin of iniquity. It was in this state of deception that he conjured lies to convince one-third of the hosts of heaven to follow him.[2] As the statement among humans goes, “The grass is always greener on the other side.” The discounted heart will open the soul of man to Lucifer’s temptations and demonic torment.[3]

The strategy he used with the angels he also used in the Garden of Eden with Eve. And the angels that follow him are still using these same strategies with you today. They can’t twist your arm and make you do anything, but they can talk to you. If you listen, you will hear a lie. Then you will make up your own mind to act. The choice will always be yours and you will be responsible for your action.

Just as you have a guardian angel to watch over and protect you, you will also have familiar (family) spirits; demons that travel blood-lines to visit the sins of the fathers to the third and fourth generation. These demons will not usually look like the comic book portrayals, unless they realize that the monster image will help them terrify you, but they will usually be disguised as beings that want to “help” you get what you want. The truth is, in this world you will have tribulation, but you are made to be more than a conqueror. Take the witness of the Son of God, who said,

These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye may have peace. In the world ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.’[4]

The key to the power to conqueror is in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus in the New Testament is the fulfillment of Jehovah that was revealed in the Old Testament. When you have a personal relationship with him, you will receive an eternal perspective about the spirit realm and how it works. Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of Hosts will fight hand in hand with you until you live in complete peace and victory.[5] will you learn in this book will give you a strategy to defeat the fallen demonic hordes, behind whatever tree you may find them.

The Purpose of Demons

lionofjudahDemons have been the focus of many Hollywood movies over the years. The Exorcist, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Angels and Demons, and Constantine with Keanu Reeves, to name a few. You can get a demon from these movies if you want one. All of these movies struck a cord of fear-chill and raked in millions of dollars. In each story line, the demons travel as big, ugly, powerful, and intimidating beings bent on destruction. There are pieces of truth mixed with massive amounts of supposition in these stories, but who would be watching a movie for the truth anyway, right? But most people do not study the scripture to discover the truth about demons, so they make up their own mix of demonology from books, stories, movies, and any personal experience they may have.

You will have spiritual beings that come around you from time to time. Some have a right to stay and some will have to go; depending on your activity. One day I was talking to a friend. He said, “Some people think there is a demon behind every bush.” Now my response would be, “I don’t think there is a demon behind every bush, but if there is a person behind that bush, there will most likely be a demon there trying to intimidate, oppress, condemn, depress, accuse, over power, and stir up as much trouble as possible.”

In more than thirty years of ministry and counseling, I am talking to more and more people who are witnessing angelic activity, reporting demonic torment, entertaining more dreams and visions and encountering spiritual experiences. It is as if the veil that exists between the physical and Spiritual realms is thinner. What’s more, the paradigm in the western mindset for the invisible world is breaking through the ominous cloud of intellectual criticism. Many are experiencing very powerful breakthroughs. Angelic activity is increasing in the earth as the end of days approaches and God tests the hearts of all men on the earth. But the reality of the soul’s trouble, stinking thinking, and psyche torment can not be over looked. When Lot, Abraham’s nephew lived in Sodom and Gomorrah, the Bible says that he vexed his righteous soul daily. (2 Peter 2:7-8) The evil activities of the inhabitants of that nation frustrated Lot’s psyche. It was not Lot’s sin, but the sin in his culture.

 

Torment in Society

There are many experiences happening in our society today that require an explanation that intellectualism and scientific study cannot answer. For example, when the bomb exploded at the Boston Marathon in 2013, the nation was dazed with the actions of two brothers who shared a religious belief system that told them to kill Americans, and if they died in honor of Mohammad and the Koran, they would be a martyr. There is no intellectual answer or scientific explanation for this irrational and immoral behavior. Our society is creating a massive spiritual void in the hearts of its people by trying to establish itself as a non-spiritual nation. As a result, there is a rising tide of spiritual hunger, spiritual awareness, and spiritual power that is working its way as yeast through the lump of dough we call humanity.

The souls of men and women are being activated. Spiritual forces are aligning. The darkness that encompasses the earth is growing darker. The glory on the children of God is glowing brighter. (Isaiah 60) The word of God is being fulfilled. The book of Revelation is walking off of the page into current events.  The sons of God and the forces of darkness are coming to maturity as the end of day’s battles approach.

However, for the actions of the two brothers in Boston there is a spiritual answer. A demonic force called a spirit of anti-Christ. (1 John 4:2-6) This demon hates anyone who loves Christ; the anointed one, and drives legally motivated people to kill anyone who breaks their law. True love experienced through the forgiveness of sin is the only antidote.  Jesus came that you might have life and have it more abundantly. (John 10:10) The enemy (Satan) comes to steal kill and destroy. If this is Satan’s mode of operations, then who was behind the scene driving the bombing in Boston? Who then is Allah aligned with? The radicalization of American citizens is happening as they read the Koran, attend their Mosques, live in their families, and as it is approved by their Imams (preachers).

People find purpose when they give their life for a heart-felt conviction, even if that conviction is misguided and destructive. But when a man or woman believes they are fulfilling the will of God, they will give their lives unto death. All who would be called gods are looking for this kind of commitment. Never in scripture will you find God telling his people to kill themselves. This is of demonic origin. If you want to be free from the torment of demons, you can be. The purpose of demons is revealed in the first book in the Bible. (Genesis 3)

 

The Demon’s Purpose

In the Garden of Eden, Lucifer the first demon appears and tempts Eve as she is admiring the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. His strategy was deception, choice and betrayal. With his words, he wanted to cause Eve to doubt the goodness of God (deception), get her to make a choice to eat the forbidden fruit (choice), and connive words that would motivate her to betray her God and self. He could not physically twist her arm and force her to eat. He could only talk to her and get her to believe that she deserved the wisdom of the forbidden tree, and then provoke her to take it for herself. Make this mental note: every door to an act of sin and demonic entrance will be opened by a person that believes a lie. With Adam’s decision to eat the fruit in disobedience to God’s command, the curse of death infected the entire creation. This was the demon’s goal. 

 

God’s Curse Reveals Purpose

God’s curse of the serpent holds the key to the purpose of demons.

This is the curse that God spoke for the serpent: “And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life: And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel .” (Genesis 3:14-15 NKJV)

The serpent was used by Lucifer in the Garden of Eden, and was cursed in the physical and spiritual realm for his part. God’s curse for the cunning physical serpent was also applicable for the demon spirit serpent, as Lucifer was functioning in the physical and spiritual realm at the same time. When God says something, it becomes the law in the physical and spiritual realms simultaneously.

The first part of this curse is “Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field…”  Lucifer could not tempt Eve without the body of a snake to work through. Therefore, the serpent was cursed for allowing Lucifer to use his body. There is a curse that comes on anything or anyone who lets a demon use them to tempt another human. Demons are motivated to destroy you because they want to cause as much havoc as possible on every human that carries the image of God.

The second part of the curse is “…upon your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life…”  Now a once proud and shrewd being that walked around erect, would now be cursed to slither on his belly and eat dust. This curse is still in effect for the reptilian species to this day. On the invisible demon side, the serpent was cursed to slither in the lowest places in the creation and eat humankind’s spiritual dust all the days of his life. The demons know their end will be the lake of fire. But before they get there, the demons are cursed to eat the yuck that surfaces when you are acting in agreement with your fleshly desires. Since demons do not die, they have been eating human dust dust for a long time.

So, what is this dust they are cursed to eat? You can find a clue to this puzzle a few verses later when God curses the man.

“…In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread, till you return unto the ground; for out of it were you taken: for dust you are, and unto dust shall you return.” (Genesis 3:19)

Adam was made from dust in the physical realm and God said he would return there. It was your flesh that was made out of dust. So the actions of the flesh to gratify the lusts of the body is the spiritual dust that the demons have a right to eat. This means whenever or wherever your flesh surfaces the demons are commanded to eat.

When you choose to respond to the feelings of anger that lead to hate for your brother or sister, the demons will eat it and entice you to take it one step further, to murder. When you are over come with the feelings of bitterness and envy for someone who you believe has more stuff and more favor than you, the demons will come to eat and entice you to devise a plan to take what they have and destroy them. When you feel the desire for sexual gratification in your body and you begin to give yourself to fulfilling them in an unlawful way, the demons will come to eat and entice you to go further into adultery and perversion. This is eloquently stated in proverbs 9.

“A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knows nothing. For she sits at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city, To call passengers who go right on their ways: Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wants understanding, she saith to him, Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knows not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.” (Proverbs 9:13-18)

The end of these temptations and enticements will be destruction and demonic oppression. There are more desires of the flesh that I could name here, but the action to gratify your flesh will draw flies (demons), just like the waste of your flesh draws flies (demons). God pronounced this curse as a law in the creation and it will be in effect until the end of time.

The purpose of demons is to eat the flesh when it surfaces in your life. God’s design and intention is for you to experience grace and peace through the full knowledge of God. Jesus Christ has given us all things that are relevant for life and godliness. This promise comes by faith, but there is another choice you can make. You can choose the corruption that is in the world through lusts. God does not keep you in the dark about the works of the flesh, he gives you a couple of lists so that you can know what this flesh or dust looks like.

 

The Works of the Flesh

When you choose the following sins, demons will smell it and come to eat.

The first list is in Galatians 5:17-21:

“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

The second list that compares the actions of the flesh compared to the actions of the Spirit, and shows what the dust looks like that the demons are cursed to eat is Ephesians 5:1-5:

“Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as become saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whore-monger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. (Ephesians 5:1-5)

The knowledge of God is the ultimate knowledge. However, you are living in a society that has cast off the knowledge of God, the laws of God and the desire to even know him. The American society treats God as a righteous plague that will corrupt their legal system and infuse out-dated morals that are not relevant for our civilization. What you choose to meditate on and focus on will set the stage for your experience. The heart draws to itself what it chooses to believe. The Lord said, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.”

One Story of Freedom

One day a young needed help. He was abused as a young child by his cousin and his parents did not believe him. This breach of trust caused a chasm of offense between him and his parents. His cousin, about ten years his senior, would scare him, abuse him mentally, physically and sexually, and cause him great hurt. The smashed feelings, the deep disappointment, and the frayed emotions, layered with trauma and distress compounded the helpless brokenness he experienced. When his parents were going out on the town, they would trust his babysitting to his cousin. He would pitch a temper tantrum at the door, trying to get their attention to rescue him. They would not listen but rebuked him harshly.

As a choice, he judged his parents as untrustworthy, began to hate his parents, rebelled against everything that was remotely like them, and sought drugs to help manage the pain in his soul. Somewhere along the way he picked up a number of demonic leaches and believed the lie that they would “help” protect him. Finally the abuse stopped, but the damage to his soul had already been done. What he needed now was deliverance and healing. Eighteen years of running away from and covering the emotional pain with every drug you can imagine, until the demon had eaten almost every ounce of flesh left in him. But Jesus Christ met him and restored him to life again. Now his life is healed and he walks free. If you want to be free from the torment of demons; the cleansing of the blood of Jesus, the authority of the word of God, and the power of the Holy Spirit will set you free. You will have to place your complete confidence and faith in Jesus Christ.

This is the key for your victory. You are living in a physical body as an eternal spiritual being. As a result, the world will never be enough. You need God and the power of his Holy Spirit to fill you. Make you choice today. You can live in the Spirit. Trust him. Depend on him. Love him. Worship him. As you live your life in relationship with God, your behavior will change and your heart will be filled with love.

A NEW LOOK AT FORGIVENESS

God’s Perspective of Forgiveness

One day as I was sitting in my office, I heard my next appointment in the waiting room. This lady had made an appointment a week earlier. She had a fulfilled marriage of 18 years, with three teenage children, and all was going well. Or so I thought… The waiting was over and she stepped into my office.

“Hi Sarah, please have a seat. How are you today?” I asked.

“Oh, I’m fine.” She said, with an apprehensive hesitant tone.

Sensing the struggle in her, I asked, “What is on your heart today?”

She hung her head, sat down in the chair said, “I need your help. I need to forgive my father. For some reason …I am not able to do that.”

My first response was rather candid, “Well, you know what the scripture says about forgiveness, don’t you?”

She says, “Yes, and I have said ‘I forgive you’ over and over again. I have prayed it. I have spoken it out loud, but somehow feelings of anger and rage keep coming up inside me, and pain comes up with it.” Her pain surfaced and I could see the conflict building. She tried to brush it off, but it would not be denied.

In that moment I realized that I was missing something. So I asked, “Do you want to tell me what you need to forgive him for?”

She looks down again, and sighs, “Ok…, I love my dad… but when I was 12 years old my dad started coming into my bedroom at night and sexually molesting me. This continued maybe two or three times a week until I was sixteen and I ran away from home. Our relationship has been now been reasonably restored, and I have tried everything to forgive him and let it go, but I can’t seem to do it.”

I thought to myself, “Give me a gun and I’ll take care of it for you.” I’m glad I didn’t say that out loud. No wonder she is troubled with forgiveness. Her father; the one man who was to establish her identity, watch over her, protect her, and be the strong moral foundation for her family; began to lust after her, touch her inappropriately, and gratify his lustful desire with her violently. This action is so demeaning that it crushes the spirit. The closest description to the way she would feel is as a black hole that is so dark and lifeless that it sucks up every good feeling from her life.

As she is pouring out her heart, I began a conversation with God in the back of my mind, “Oh God, please help! The trite answers that everyone would give for forgiveness will not work in this situation. I need your wisdom Oh Lord. What do you want me to tell her?”

Then I heard a still small voice that I know as the Lord’s whisper, “She needs a picture for her life that is bigger than herself.” While I was talking to her in my office, this conversation between me and God continued in the back of my mind. “I agree Lord, but what picture would that be?”

Illustration OneaHe said, “Take out a piece of paper. I want you to tell her a story and draw a diagram.  Write on the right side near the top, ‘Jehovah = I am that I am’ and tell her that I am Jehovah, which means ‘I am that I am.’”

He then said “Draw a triangle, representing God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, as the originator of this plan, in the top left corner of the paper. Now share this with her, Jehovah = I am that I am, and that everything adds up in my universe.”

As I wrote this on that piece of paper, my hand went right under the ‘I am that I am’ and wrote 1+1=2, and then under that equation to write 2+2=4. Then he said, “Tell her that since ‘I am that I am’ is my nature, what you see is what you get. Everything adds up in my universe and everything has to add up in my universe. I am perfect, and I created everything perfect in its original state.”

Eternal purpose pic oneThen the still small voice said, “Now, draw a short line from the left side of the paper, about half way down.” As I drew, my hand moved as if I knew what to draw. For an hour or more I talked to her about God’s eternal plan for her life, and his eternal purpose to forgive and redeem his creation back to him. On the line at the left side of the paper, I drew two trees with two people (stick figures) standing under these trees.

And then he said, “Now tell her… Into this perfect environment I planted a garden full of fruit trees. But in the midst of this garden, I put the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Then I put Adam in the garden and told him “…of every tree in the garden you may eat, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof thou shall surely die.” (Genesis 2:17)

Then He said, “Tell her that Adam and Eve chose to eat from this forbidden tree and disobey me. And when they acted in disobedience, they sinned and fell from the original state of perfection they were created in, to a state of legal separation from me and a total commitment to self as the source, causing the curse of death and the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil to pass as an inherited curse to every man woman and child.”

eternal purpose slide twoAs I was describing the fall, I drew a vertical line down to the bottom of the page, and drew two stick figures, lying down in a position of death. Next, I drew a circle around them with slash marks around the circle coming from the outside of the circle in toward Adam and Eve; illustrating the anger of God that was directed toward them for their act of disobedience and that the integrity of his nature required when a breach to his Holiness is activated. This circle that looked like an explosion illustrated his nature being an all consuming fire, that cleanses as it consumes.

Then he said, “Tell her that in the moment of their decision, they sinned and fell from perfection. For the first time in earth’s creation, everything did not add up in my universe any more. But everything must add up in my universe, and someone has to pay for sin and death. Therefore, I was presented with two choices.

First, I could totally annihilate them; making them pay for their own disobedience and causing them to bear the full weight of my righteous anger. If I annihilate them, everything will be atoned for, and everything will add up in my universe again. This was my first choice, but I had another.

Second, I could take all that they deserved in judgment and death, anger and accusation, guilt and condemnation, offence and betrayal onto myself, and then take all of that righteous and holy justice of destruction and death out on my Son on the cross.”

Illustration Five aAs I said this, my hand drew a circular line starting from the explosion of death at the bottom of the left-hand section of the page; around to the top of the page right into the triangle I had drawn in the beginning, representing God. Next, I moved about 2/3’s of the distance across the page and drew a cross on the timeline. And then I drew a straight line on an angle from the triangle to the cross, representing the place where God put all that Adam and Eve deserved on his Son. Jesus was made “…to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Then he said, “When I chose this, Adam and Eve, and with them all of humanity, was given grace and mercy to be lifted up into life again; not because they deserved it, but because I loved them.” As I was saying these things, I drew a line from the circle of death and judgment up to the straight timeline that was completed to the right of the page. Then, I drew the stick figures of Adam and Eve on the line.

Illustration 6abHe continued, and I continued, “Now, in this state of grace they would be given many opportunities to hear my story of salvation, see Jesus on the cross, and exercise their free-will to believe in my Son Jesus. If they choose to receive and believe, they will receive eternal life and walk in forgiveness. But if they choose not to believe, they will die in their sin, and be sent to hell with the fallen angels.”

Tell her “I took the second choice, and took her sin on myself, and took all of my righteous anger and justice out on my son on the cross. And now, everything adds up in my universe again. I and my Son paid what she could not. It was her sin and her father’s sin that I took to the cross.”

We then said, “Now your father is lying in that fallen place of death and condemnation, deserving total annihilation. When you were in this same place of sin, I took your offense on myself, carried it to the cross and left it there. Will you take your father’s sin on yourself, carry your father’s offense to the cross and leave it there? This is how she can act just like me.” Her tears started to roll down her cheeks. She hung her head to think and process what she had heard.

After a few moments I asked, “Do you want your father to be condemned to hell forever for what he has done to you?”

It felt almost like an eruption when she exclaimed, “No… He is my dad!” Then I saw a light come into her eyes. She lifted up her head and said, “Thank you, I can forgive him now.” When she chose to forgive, her burden was lifted, and she was free. Through wisdom, this lady received an entirely new perspective of her life purpose and she was shown how to forgive. She built a foundation for truth and wisdom for her life when she chose to act.

This is an story taken as a segment out of Steve’s new book coming out soon entitled: Imagine… unlocking the power to create

 

The Faith of God

A woman came who was beaten down, accused and condemning herself. She was afflicted with Fibromyalgia. As the word of God was proclaimed and I laid hands on her, the Spirit of God hit her and broke the power of sickness and I saw this disease leave her body. This disease had entered through a trauma that she had experienced. But this night she was healed in Jesus name. The creator of heaven and earth is saying right now, "It is time for you to be healed!"
In the Healing Rooms we are experiencing new surges of healing power. I believe this is the faith of God that has been prophesied by one of God’s mantle prophets, Bob Jones. Bob, a prophetic father said in 1999, “...the 2000’s will reveal the Glory of God, the 2010’s will reveal the faith of God...” through the body of Christ into the world. What is the faith of God? The faith of God is you entering into his faith. Instead of you trying to believe your hardest, you will surrender to his living word, creative power and enter into his extraordinary faith.

This is in agreement with Jesus when he said in Mark 11, “Have faith in God.” Which is better translated, “Have the faith of God!” Then a few moments later Jesus says,   “…What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Agreement between God and man releases miracle power. What do you need? Enter the faith of God and receive. It is important that the mind of those seeking the faith of God be “renewed” to bring harmony with the mind of Christ. You will not be able to go beyond the limits of your own thinking. “As a man thinks in his heart so is he…” (Proverbs 23:7)

In waking sleep one morning the Lord said, “Steve, what would it be like if you really had the mind of Christ…?” As he was saying this I heard my own soul say, “The scripture says I already have the mind of Christ.” But then for a split second I experienced the atmosphere of his mind… a doubt free total confident assurance of all the Father gives he can do and he will do. The sense of complete and utter possibility with no lack or limit.” Healing… No doubt. Miracles… No problem. God’s word…. Fully given and completely manifested.

How do you enter this faith?

1. What you behold you become. Choose to see Jesus dying on a cross for your sin and say, “Lord Jesus I believe that you died for my unbelief, and my sin. Lord Jesus I believe that God raised you from the dead. You are the Son of God. I believe.” Keep your eyes on Jesus. Hebrews 12:2  says, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…”

2. What you receive you believe. Choose to receive the word of God as absolute truth even when you do not understand it. Now say, “Lord Jesus, I confess that you are my Savior, and I give you my heart and life right now. I receive you into my heart right now!”  “As many as receive him… to them gave he power…” (John 1:12)

3. What you believe you experience. Choose to believe  his word until he changes your experience. Now say, “Lord Jesus, I enter your faith right now. Will you take my heart and show me how to walk in your faith? I receive the experience of the faith of God.” Abraham “…called those things which are not as though they were…” Romans 4:17

As you enter the faith of God, healing becomes a part of you. A young man came into the Healing Rooms of Asheville, after he had been examined by three doctors and diagnosed with a tumor in his kidney.  During ministry, he felt the power of God move across his back and he knew he was healed.  The MRI on the next Wednesday was proof positive that God had indeed healed him.

Your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit and therefore belongs to God. When disease comes into your body it is trespassing and must be told, “GO… in Jesus name.” The scriptures say, “The kingdom (rule and reign)  of God suffers violence (conflict)  and the violent take it (our healing) by force.  (Matthew 11:12, Italics’ mine)

John G.
