TOPIC: Healing virtues
TEXT: Acts 5:10-15
“Then immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her out, buried her by her husband. So great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things. And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch. Yet none of the rest dared join them, but the people esteemed them highly. And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women, so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed” Acts 5:10-15.
The plan of God for your life is that you are not sick at all so when sickness comes it is a stranger, an invader, an agent of the devil. John 10:10 says “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” The devil is out there to steal your health, kill your body and destroy you but Christ has come to give life abundantly. The bible says in 1John 3:8 “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.”
In the name that is above every other name, anything that resembles agent of death in your life will be destroyed tonight in Jesus name. Amen.
Not only will you be healed, beginning from now, everyone you touch will be healed in Jesus name. Amen.
Healing can fall into different categories. It can be in form of a repair according to John 5:2-9. The man at the pool of Bethesda had been there for 38years but after an encounter with Jesus, all the things holding him down was repaired and he was healed completely. Whatever needs to be repaired in your body, the great physicians will heal tonight in Jesus name. Amen
Sometimes, healing goes beyond repairs, in some cases healing requires reversing the irreversible. Everything that is beyond repairs in your life, may the Almighty God reverse the irreversible tonight in Jesus name. Amen
Occasionally, there is a healing that involves creative miracles. For example in 2kings 5:1-14, Namaan wasn’t just healed of leprosy but his skin was restored like that of a new born baby. I am believing the Almighty God tonight that as many as need creative miracles tonight will get them in Jesus name .Amen
In some cases healing requires resurrection. For example in Romans 4:17-21, the bible tells us the womb of Sarah was already dead. The womb had long ago seized to be the type that could hold a child but God resurrected the womb. Any part of your body that they have claimed to be completely dead will come back alive tonight in Jesus name. Amen.
Some healing don’t just require resurrection but life too. In John 11:25, Christ describes himself as the resurrection and life. In John 11:39-44 bible tells the story of Lazarus’ death and how Jesus brought him back to life. Jesus didn’t just bring Lazarus to life but he healed the disease that killed him in the first place.
There is a level of health where the healing power of God dwells so mightily in someone. Exodus 23:25 says “So you shall serve the LORD your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you “. If by accident sickness goes into such a body, the consuming fire of God kills the disease.
There is also a level of health where healing/health overflows to others. In Acts 3:1-8, when Peter and John were about entering the temple and saw the lame man at the beautiful gate, all Peter had to do was lift the man up and immediately the man who had been lame from his mother’s womb began working. It was the healing power flowing inside of Peter that transferred to the lame man.
You are not in this congress just for yourself; you are in this congress so you can overflow to others. From today, you are going to pray for the sick and they will recover! Health can flow through your hands and also flow through your dress.
In Acts 19:11-12, bible says “God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them”.
Beginning from this moment forward, your dress will heal the sick and raise the dead in Jesus name. Amen.
Because of what God is going to do in your life, you are going to become an amazement to your neighbourhood.
According to Acts 5:14-15, there was so much healing power in Peter to the point that his shadow began healing people. Can God do the same for you? Oh Yes! But for the healing virtue to flow through you, you need the anointing. Acts 10:38 Says “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”
In addition to this, Isaiah 61:1 says “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound”. It is when you are filled with the Holy Spirit you can begin to do exploits for God.
You cannot have the anointing if you are still living in sin. The Almighty God will not give His Holy Spirit to someone who is unholy and living in sin. For the Holy Spirit to become your portion, you need to be saved and so if you have not given your life to Christ, do so now! Repent of your sins, forsake them and accept Jesus as your Lord and saviour.
If God has not been using you to heal the sick it is probably because (1) You don’t believe He can use you (2) You never asked Him.
The bible says we receive not because we ask not so we are going to ask Him not just for healing or good health tonight but for the anointing to heal others.
1.Praise Him with all your heart
2.Father! Whatever needs repair in my body, please repair it right now
3.Father! whatever cannot be repaired in my body, please replace it
4.Father! Baptize me massively with Your holy ghost and fire so that I will never know sickness or disease again
5.Father! From tonight, let your healing virtues flow through me.
6.Father! Touch my relatives, friends (mention their names) and make them whole.
