MY LIFE UNTIL
JESUS HEALED ME

iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with
His stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5)
2 WEEKS OLD, I HAD AN EPILEPTIC SEIZURE AND DIED
had an epileptic seizure and died when I was 2 weeks old on May
23, 1955. After I turned blue and cold, my mother, who was a
registered nurse, managed to revive me and rushed me to the
was in and out of the Vancouver Sick Children's Hospital for the
next several years under the caring expertise of Dr. Auciand.
found among other things, that I had an intense allergy to milk
which would set off epilepsy seizures. When I was 3 years
old, I spent most of the summer in the hospital.
remember feeling abandoned and terrified of the many injection
needles that seemed necessary to keep me calm. After this
time in the hospital, my parents were extremely careful to keep
all anxiety and anticipation out of my life.
HAD TO MAKE SURE I WAS KEPT CALM OR I WOULD HAVE EPILEPTIC
and over I heard the words: "Don't get Louise excited."
When it was unavoidable, they would up my dosage of tranquilizing
drugs in order to avoid a seizure. When I was cranky or
hostile, I often became violent and my mother would say, "Did
you remember to take your pills today?"
remember a Saturday when I was 10 years old. My mother made
all of us 4 children have a bath in the morning. Then we all
had our hair done. Next we put on our fancy dresses and
realized that something special was happening. no one had
told me that we were going to a wedding in the afternoon. My
little sister who was five had known about the wedding for 2
weeks, but had been instructed not to tell me, so that I wouldn't
STARTED SNEAKING ALCOHOL FROM MY PARENTS
I entered my teenage years, the levels of dosages were "all
over the map". I started drinking (on the sly) from my
parent's liquor cabinet when I was 14 years old. This would
mess up the affect of the tranquilizers even more. I found
that if I skipped my noon time pills, I would have excessive
energy for the evening but I wouldn't be able to sleep until I was
emotionally and physically drained. I usually cried myself
to sleep and was often violent.
I was like this mom would make sure I took my pills by standing
and watching me. At stressful times I would lose weight
which again would play havoc with the drug levels.
the games I was playing with tranquilizers and alcohol, I don't
know how I survived my teenage years. By God's grace, I
WAS REBELLIOUS AND ELOPED AT 19 YEARS OLD
doctors DID NOT want me to go through the stress of marriage and
pregnancy until I was stabilized - hopefully in my later 20's.
But being quite rebellious, I eloped at 19 years old.
bought a house when I was 20 years old, by a lot of scrimping and
saving, and I had a baby just before my 21st birthday. My
husband was as violent and unpredictable as I was - it was a
stormy, unhappy marriage.
BABY WAS BORN WITH ADHD & FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME
baby was colicky, underweight, ADHD (although that was not
diagnosed until many years later) and FAS (fetal alcohol
syndrome - again not diagnosed until much later).
never slept more than 2 hours. I was in a bad physical state
and looking for a divorce, when my girlfriend invited me to a Max
came up to Kelowna, B.C. (from New Westminister) on a bus with my
4 1/2 month old son, thinking that I would go to this meeting to
satisfy my girlfriend (from high school days). I thought I
would stay the weekend and then go to a lawyer on Monday to get a
WENT TO THE MAX SOLBREKKEN TENT CRUSADE
we went to the crusade tent, everyone was so full of joy. A
man was running around and around the tent praising the Lord with
his hands lifted up. Lillian told me that he had come at the
beginning of the week with a very serious heart case, unable to
lift his hands up enough to comb his hair. I didn't believe
her, but I thought this could be interesting to see the trick the
evangelists use to make people believe in this stuff.
knew God could heal, I just didn't believe He would heal me.
I thought, as a deist, that God created the world, but then just
left us to figure out the rest. He'd be too busy to bother
with someone's aches and pains.
MAX SOLBREKKEN BEGAN PRAYING FOR THE SICK
singing some songs, Pastor Max Solbrekken asked if anyone wanted
prayer for healing.
lady suffering from back pain went forward. He asked her to sit
down and put her feet out straight. In the meantime, Lillian had
taken my baby and pushed me right to the front, so that I could
crouched down to look for the trick, so I was about 18 inches away
from the lady's feet and from Pastor Solbrekken. Pastor
Solbrekken had hold of her heels and he was showing us that one
leg was shorter than the other causing the pain, so I
watched Pastor Max to see how he would pull on one leg and I
watched to see if the man behind the chair would twist the lady's
shoulders giving the impression
of lengthening the one leg.
as I watched, the man stepped back and raised his hands and
started glorifying God, while Max Solbrekken's fingers, under the
lady's heels just dropped slowly from her heels as he said,
"Thank you Jesus. Thank you Jesus! Thank you
he said this, I watched her leg MOVE OUT. The 'brick wall'
of all my unbelief came tumbling down and I was confronted with a
God who actually cared.
SOLBREKKEN ASKED IF ANYONE ELSE WANTED JESUS TO HEAL THEM - I PUT
UP MY HAND
stood up shaking! When Pastor Solbrekken asked who else
wanted Jesus to heal them, to give them a miracle, I put up my
hand, still shaking uncontrollably. He said, "Oh, the
Holy Ghost is all over this little lady", as he turned to me
and asked what I wanted to be healed from.
STARTED TO CRY AND SCREAMED 'EPILEPSY
answer although I was shaking like a leaf, my insides were frozen,
the pit of my stomach was a 'tight knot', my throat was like
I started to cry and finally screamed 'EPILEPSY!"
Solbrekken put his hands on my shoulder and led me up to the
platform. He announced on the microphone what God was about
to do. That God was going to heal and deliver me from
Epilepsy. He came towards me with his hand upraised.
he brought his hand down toward my head, an electric shock went
between us and threw us apart a couple of feet. Then he
said: "In the name of Jesus...." and his hand came down
on my head.
FEELING LIKE WARM OIL WENT THROUGH MY ENTIRE BODY
yelled "JESUS" (that was my salvation prayer), as I fell
back into a chair. Immediately Pastor Solbrekken's hand went
on my head and I felt as if it were a bead of warm oil (about the
size of a baseball) enter the top of my head and I could feel it
moving all around, then stopping, then moving. This warm oil
went throughout my entire body. I could feel it moving up
and down each finger and eventually each leg and toe. This
whole process took about 25 minutes as I sat in the chair while
the service went on.
APPEARED TO ME: HE KEPT TELLING ME HOW MUCH HE LOVED ME
I went back to the congregation, everyone was worshipping, so I
took my baby to hold and joined in the worship with all of my
heart - I was so happy - I was so grateful. As the gratitude
and thankfulness welled up inside of me, I fell over backwards.
Fortunately, Lillian chose that very second to look over at me and
took my baby as I went down under the power of the Spirit.
It was then that I saw the Lord and heard the voice of a waterfall
saying, "I love you, Louise. Never forget that I love
you. I love you more than you can imagine..." He
went on saying this for about 45 minutes.
I got up, I started to worship and as I did, I started singing in
a language that flowed and flowed, but that I had never heard
before. I was so filled with joy for Jesus, healing me,
forgiving me, delivering me and filling me with His Spirit.
I asked question after question of my hosts that night and kept
them up till 3 a.m. I slept in peace for the first time in
my life and when I woke up, I found that my baby had slept from
11:30 until 8:30 for the first time in his little life.
WAS HEALED OF EPILEPSY AND I AM STILL HEALED 26 YEARS LATER
Max told me to keep taking my pills until I was checked by the E.E.G.
(I used to have this test every 6 months) to check my brain waves.
Well, I threw the pills in the toilet in Kelowna. I
KNEW I WAS HEALED and would never need another pill. That was
June 26th, 1976. That night I was set free from unbelief,
epilepsy, hatred, including self-hate, hopelessness, alcohol, etc.
went to my scheduled E.E.G. on
I went into Dr. Auciand's office after the test, he said: "Well,
this is wonderful! We've
finally got this under control! Your alpha waves were completely NORMAL!"
He was so pleased. Bursting his bubble of medical
accomplishment, I said: "Well, Praise the Lord! I haven't had
a pill in three months! I'm healed!"
My reply was "Jesus healed me in June and I haven't
had any medication since then." He called me crazy and
assured me that I would be back in his office with more trouble
very soon. That
was 26 1/2 years ago.
IS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME
after I started attending a Holy Ghost filled church where I was
loved, nurtured, discipled, taught, trained and shown how to love
and serve God, by loving and serving people. All three of my
children were snatched from death through the power of God at one
time or another in their lives. Danny was in hospital at 2
1/2 years old, the doctors made a bed for me because they said he
wouldn't live through the night. Now he's 26 years old and
has married an on-fire for Jesus beautiful young lady.
now married to a man who likes to serve God and pray as much as I
do. I have assisted in planting a few churches over the years,
ministering in the prophetic and intercession and all the
practical hands-on work that is needed.
think my gifting is my willingness to do anything that will help
Jesus be made manifest, from babysitting to washing the washrooms,
taking graffiti off walls, turning overheads, leading worship,
Bible studies, preaching, giving money to the Lord's work! I
just love the Lord.
revival that started in my heart on June 26th, 1976
wore off. Jesus is the best thing that
happened to me! Hallelujah.
said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy
God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give
ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put
none of these diseases upon thee, which i have brought upon the
Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee. (Exodus 15:26)
MIRACLES ARE FOR TODAY
by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
Bible says: "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and to day,
and for ever." (Hebrews 13:8)
LUTHER the great reformer said, "How often has it
happened, and still does, that devils have been driven out in the
name of Christ; also by calling on His Name and prayer, and the
sick have been healed."
WESLEY, founder of the Methodist Church, stated: "I
believe that God can open the eyes of the blind, cause the lame to
walk, and the deaf to hear, if men will have faith in God; stand
on the word of God, and pray according to the faith that God hath
given them, God will do the things He said He would because He is
a never-changing God."
SIMPSON, founder of Christian & Missionary Alliance,
declared, "If ever there was an age where the world needed
the witness of God's supernatural working, it is in this day of
unbelief and Satan's power."
we may expect, as the end approaches, that the Holy Ghost will
work in the healing of sickness, in the casting out of demons, in
remarkable answers to prayer, in special and wonderful
providences, and in such form as may please His sovereign will to
an unbelieving world."
CHARLES H. MAYO, Mayo Brothers Clinic, said: "Christian
healing has passed beyond the stage of experience and its value
cannot be questioned. Spiritual healing is no longer the
hope of a few but the belief and practice of a large and rapidly
increasing number of person."
CHRIST said: "If thou canst believe; all things are
possible to him that believeth." (Mark 9:23)
these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they
cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall
take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not
hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall
recover." (Mark 16:17-18)
SOLBREKKEN, God's humble servant, says: "That God is a
healer is no secret. That his Word has amazing saving,
healing and creative power is well known. But that his power
to save, heal and deliver is readily available at absolutely NO
COST, is not widely known."
people believe that there are strings attached, a price to pay,
good works to do, a guru to follow, and that God favors only a
healing is a gift from God to those who are fearful, hurting, sick
and diseased. And He offers it freely through the death &
resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ, by Whom He has defeated sin,
sickness, fear, death & Satan. GLORY TO GOD FOREVER.

Blessed Holy Spirit upon this ministry and the staggering miracles

TO RECEIVE HEALING FROM JESUS CHRIST AND ANSWERS TO YOUR PRAYERS
little booklet was written in 1965 - only 2 years after I had
entered the ministry - and brought the healing message of Jesus
Christ to multitudes. It was titled, "HOW TO RECEIVE
HEALING FROM JESUS CHRIST."
miracles of divine healing and deliverance have been wrought by
our blessed Lord Jesus through this ministry, during the past four
truths found in this message are still basic and necessary for
each of us, if we are to experience the presence of the Holy
Spirit which brings the healing virtue of Jesus Christ into our
lives. God does answer prayers, but He knows the best time and the
best solution for each of us.

His Word is still true and "by His stripes we are

forgiving our sins and healing our sicknesses, and answering
our prayers, as Dr. A.B. SIMPSON, founder of Christians &
Missionary Alliance - concurred many years ago in his powerful
book, "The Gospel of Healing."
David declared: "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not
all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth
all thy diseases." (Psalms 103:2-3)

them, and delivered them from their destructions."

His wonderful works to the children of men." (Psalm. 107:

see his hand outstretched toward the sinful, sick and suffering
these many years. Over the years we have seen thousands of
prayers answered and glorious miracles of healing in bodies, lives
and families. All glory and praise to His wonderful name, through
Jesus Christ our Lord.
is my prayer that as we reprint this little "messenger of
hope", faith will rise in many hearts, faith that God
will fulfill his word and answer your prayer. I pray that
great blessings will touch multitudes of lives.

Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall
be forgiven him." (James 5:14-15)

You may even be getting worse! Your faith is at a low ebb and

and accept weakness, pain, sickness and distress as your lot in
DEAR FRIEND, THERE IS STILL HOPE FOR YOU. It is not too
late. It may seem hopeless, but it is not. It may seem useless to
think of deliverance, but it is not. So long as you are alive and
there is a God in Heaven, there is hope!

with God all things are possible”. (Mark 10:27) It may seem
impossible to you but with God NOTHING is impossible.

that’s when God can take over, for He never fails. When man
“gives up on you”, God is ready, willing and able to step in
and bring to pass a miracle in your life, because nothing is
impossible with Him!
CAN & WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYER! When God could bring
the world into being by His spoken Word, hang the universe on
nothing, fling the sun, moon and stars into the far most corner of
the night to rotate in perfect harmony, HE CAN ANSWER YOUR PRAYER.
You must be patient and continue to pray and seek God, as he will

Since He has the ability to create millions of moons, galaxies of
stars and heavenly bodies by a few words from Hs lips, most
assuredly He is able to destroy the cancer, heart disease,

AT THE TOUCH OF HIS HAND, GOD CREATED A PERFECT HUMAN BEING IN HIS
OWN IMAGE AND BREATHED INTO MAN’S NOSTRILS THE BREATH OF LIFE
MAKING HIM A LIVING SOUL, SURELY HE CAN HEAL YOUR SICK SPIRIT,

PROMISED ANSWERS TO YOUR PRAYERS.
Great God Who brought back to life the Lord Jesus Christ, can
certainly quicken your mortal body. When you think of how great
and mighty our God is, certainly nothing could be impossible to
Paul declares: "But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus

God able to heal our weak, aging, temporal bodies? Yes, He is able
to and He does! Is God able to answer your prayers.
Yes - He is willing to answer your prayers. The Bible says,
“All things are possible to him that believeth”. (Mark 9:23)
Since He (the Holy Spirit) brought Jesus Christ back from the
dead, He can most certainly heal our diseased and dying bodies,
says St. Paul.
verse 26, the great apostle continues, "Likewise the Spirit
also helpeth our infirmities (lit. greek - takes a hold of against
our sicknesses): for we know not what we should pray for as we
ought: but the Spirit itself (Himself) maketh intercession for us
(lit. greek - and together with us) with groanings (Holy Spirit
prayer - praying in tongues) which cannot be uttered".
same Blessed Holy Spirit Who raised Jesus Christ from the dead
dwells within us and "takes a hold of against our
sickness" and “together with us” prays to our Heavenly
Father for our healing and deliverance!
THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM THAT BELIEVETH"
Bible says, “All things are possible to him that believeth”.
(Mark 9:23) The first truth we have established is that your case
is not too difficult for God and there is a good possibility of
your healing to take place We have also established that God
is able and willing to heal you - to answer your prayers!

am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”
stated that the devil came for only three reasons; to steal, kill
and destroy! But Jesus came to bring life! The devil is a thief
and a murderer (John 8:44) and came only to do evil (steal, kill
and destroy). He came to rob you of your happiness, joy,
peace, health and blessing. He came to harm you and finally
destroy you in a hospital, insane asylum or prison.
devil is cruel, perverted, evil, wicked and ungodly. He can only
do evil. He has no capability to do good. The devil is the death
IS 100% GOOD! He came to bring life. He came to bring
blessings to all who would believe. HE CAME TO BRING ABUNDANT LIFE
BECAUSE HE IS THE LIFE GIVER! Some people have given the devil the
credit for healing sick people - this is blasphemous and utterly
false. It is contrary to God’s Word and accuses Jesus of telling

The Word of God is pure, divine and infallible!
SAID THAT YOU CANNOT GET GOOD FRUIT FROM A CORRUPT TREE OR CORRUPT
FRUIT FROM A GOOD TREE. By their fruits we shall know them!
Jesus said a corrupt tree “bringeth not forth good fruit”.

forth figs - you can’t get sweet water out of a fountain that is

THAT IS GOOD?
called the devil a thief who came only to steal, kill and destroy.
He came to this earth for no other purpose! Jesus came to bring
life! Healing and health is life! Sickness and disease brings
death! The Bible classifies 'healing' as 'doing good'!
God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power,
Who went about doing good, healing all who were oppressed of the
devil.” (Acts 10:38)
message is plain and simple: The devil made people sick but Jesus
made them well. Sickness comes from satanic sources and divine
healing has its origin in God! The literal Greek states that
Jesus Christ healed all those who "were under the dominion,
authority or lordship of Satan". That is God's Word - Believe
it and be healed;
MAY APPEAR THAT WITCH DOCTORS AND OCCULTS MAY HEAL OR CURE BUT BE
I know there are times that it appears witch doctors and other
occultists may have affected cures by their incantations. Do
not be deceived. Satan is a deceiver and manipulator.
In the end, his involvement always brings enslavement, torment
magicians (witch doctors and soothsayers) of Egypt could duplicate
many of the miracles performed by Moses in the sight of Pharaoh
(king) of Egypt. There were two things they could not do, however.
- They could not get rid of the plagues even though they could
duplicate Moses in bringing forth the flies and frogs. Moses had
to be called to get rid of the plagues: eg. darkness, flies,
frogs, lice, locusts. Interpretation: Satan can bring the cancer
but he has no power to heal the person from the death-dealing work
of the disease which he has brought. God is the only healer and
- When it comes to creating life, the magicians could not create
lice out of dust as Moses did in the Name of the Lord.
magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God”. (Ex.
8:19) Here is the interpretation: Satan is a deceiver and
trickster but he has no power to do good, heal, save or create
life! All he can do is deceive, lie, steal and kill! Only
God can heal and create life and sustain it!
are some things you must do if you are to be healed. Study the
accounts of sick folk - in the Bible - who were healed, and if you
do what they did, you will certainly receive healing, because
Jesus Christ is no respector of persons!

WHO SEEK ONLY A HEALING OR MIRACLE OR ANSWERS TO PRAYER

contact with the Great Physician and receive your miracle and

miracle or answers to prayers without worshipping God, will be

ADVANTAGEOUS THAN GETTING ONLY A PHYSICAL MIRACLE WITHOUT

was in a desperate situation. His daughter was at the point of
death when he decided to seek out the Master. Here is the Bible
He spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain
ruler, and worshipped Him, saying, My daughter is even now dead:
but come and lay Thy hand upon her, and she shall live. And Jesus
arose, and followed him, and so did His disciples.
behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve
years, came behind Him, and touched the hem of His garment: For
she said within herself, If I may but touch His garment, I shall
be whole. But Jesus turned Him about, and when He saw her, He
said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee
whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
when Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels
and the people making a noise, He said unto them, Give place: for
the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed Him to scorn.
But when the people were put forth, He went in, and took her by
the hand, and the maid arose.” (Matt. 9:18-25)
WOMAN WORSHIPS JESUS!
behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried
unto Him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my
daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But He answered her not
a word. And His disciples came and besought Him, saying, Send her
away; for she crieth after us. But He answered and said, I am not
sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. “Then came
she and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, help me.
He answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s
bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the
dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.
Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy
faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was
made whole from that very hour.” (Matt. 15:22-28)
Bible states, “And as they went to tell His disciples. behold,
Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by
the feet, and worshipped Him”. (Matt. 28:9)
HEARS THE PRAYERS AND ANSWERS THE PRAYERS OF THOSE WHO WORSHIP HIM
doubt, God hears your prayers and God answers the prayers of those
who worship Him. And all who are saved and healed by God’s power
WILL desire to worship Him!
blind man whom Jesus healed is a good example of that fact:
“Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found
him, He said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? He
answered and said, Who is He, Lord, that I might believe on Him?
And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen Him, and it is He
that talketh with thee.
he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped Him”. (John 9:35-38)
the Samaritan woman, Jesus said, “But the hour cometh, and now
is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit
and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a
Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and
in truth”. (John 4:23-24)

GOOD EXAMPLE OF HOW GOD REWARDS HUMILITY IS FOUND IN THE HEALING
ACCOUNT OF NAAMAN
Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the
door of the house of Elisha. And Elisha sent a messenger unto him,
saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall
come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean.
Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He
will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the
Lord his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the
leper. Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than
all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So
he turned and went away in a rage.
his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father,
if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not
have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash,
and be clean?
went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according
to the saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like
unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.” (2 Kings
people believe that they will receive something from God because
of WHO THEY ARE OR THINK THEY ARE! We do not receive healing
because we are worthy, but because we are needy. And Jesus Christ
met that need nearly 2000 years ago on the cross!
RECEIVE HEALING FROM GOD BECAUSE OF HIS GRACE AND MERCY AND
BECAUSE OF HIS WORD - NOT BECAUSE WE DESERVE IT - HEALING IS A
is only because of His great liberality to us by sending His Son
Jesus Christ, to die in our place and purchase our salvation, that
we receive forgiveness and divine healing from His gracious and
must never forget that forgiveness, divine healing, the gifts and
graces of God which He bestows upon us are simply that - gifts of
God’s mercy to us!
3 - BELIEVE IN GOD’S INTEGRITY, ABILITY AND WILLINGNESS TO KEEP
HIS PROMISES TO US
that God’s Word is absolutely true and that it will never pass
away! The Heavens and the Earth will pass away, but God’s Word
will stand forever. (Matthew 24:35) God’s Word is as pure
and divine as God Himself (John 1:1-4).
HOLY SCRIPTURES IS GOD’S WORD!
Lord God Almighty is “back of” His Word, and it will never
fail (1 Kings 8:56). God has placed “His Word” above “His
Name” (Psalm 138:2). His Word has gone out of His mouth in
righteousness and will not return void.
shall My word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not
return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please,
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Isaiah
will perform every Word He has spoken. “Then said the Lord unto
me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten My word to perform
it.” (Jeremiah 1:12) “So shall My word be that goeth
forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it
shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the
thing whereto I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11) Believe that God’s
Word is the final authority and that IT IS GOOD TODAY! Then,
appropriate His Word to yourself, for your own individual need!
said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath
anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, He hath sent me to
heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and
recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are
bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke
Bible says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the
Word of God.” (Romans 10:17) Jesus asked two blind men,
“Believest thou that I am able to do this (heal them)?” They
answered, “Yea, Lord”.
Jesus touched their eyes saying, “According to your faith be it
unto you”, and they were instantly healed!
said, “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him
that believeth”. (Mark 9:23)
Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe
Me for the very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He
that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and
greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.
whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the
Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in
My name, I will do it.” (John 14:11-14)
4 - TAKE GOD AT HIS WORD!
Bible says, “...if thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of
the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in His sight,
and wilt give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes,
I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought
upon the Egyptians, for I am the Lord that healeth thee.”
promised: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall
find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that
asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that
knocketh it shall be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)
the even was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed
with devils: and He cast out the spirits with His word, and HEALED
ALL THAT WERE SICK: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by
Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare
our sicknesses.” (Matthew 8:16-17)
hundred years before His birth in Bethlehem, the Holy Spirit
promised divine healing through the Coming Messiah!
He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our
iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with
His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)
is the beginning of the fulfillment of that prophecy: “Who His
own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being
dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by Whose stripes ye
were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
are three very important spiritual laws which Jesus Christ gave
Law of Binding & Loosing
Law of Agreement
Law of God's Presence
three laws, when acted upon in faith, bring divine healing and
total deliverance to those who call upon the Lord in sincerity and
I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound
in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed
I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as
touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them
of My Father which is in heaven.
where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in
the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:18-20)
Law of Binding & Loosing is found in Matthew 18:18
Law of Agreement is contained in Matthew 18:19
Law of God's Presence is written in Matthew 18:20

of God & Divine Healing’!

and He shall bring it to pass”. (Psalm 37:5)
said, "Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye
desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall
have them". (Mark 11:24) Jesus Christ promises that he
will hear and answer your prayers.

HEALED SUDDENLY OR YOU MAY BEGIN TO AMEND AS ALSO HAPPENED IN THE
MINISTRY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST!
enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said
unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. So the
father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said
unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole
house.” (John 4:52-53)
WITH JOY THESE WORDS OF LIFE: “Is any sick among you? let
him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him,
anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of
faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if
he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may
be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man
availeth much”. (James 5:14-16)
