The following has been written for those times you don’t receive your healing instantly.
We have talked with many people who are sick in their bodies and are in need of healing from the Lord. For most people healing seems to be the hardest thing to receive from the Lord. My personal belief is that because it is something that we feel and see with our physical eyes – it is hardest to believe for. The Bible is filled with scriptures saying that healing is available for us.
Mark 16:17 states, “…and these attesting signs will accompany those who believe: in My name they will cast out demons…” Verse 18) “they will lay their hands on the sick and they will get well.” According to these scriptures – you lay hands on – they get well! However, all of us at one time or another have been sick and had hands laid on and went home still sick.
As we seek the Lord more and more in this end time, we need the answers to these questions. Matthew 7:7,8 “Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and the [door] will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, the door will be opened.”
Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood…” Through our experience and other’s experiences in Deliverance (casting out demons), we have found that some demons do not come out until after many sessions of Deliverance. They are what we call the “cabbage” demons. For example: if you have a bad temper and you go through Deliverance, then you go home and a couple days later you still have a bad temper – you need more Deliverance. Like a head of cabbage, as you tear a leaf off, it is smaller but it is still cabbage. You tear off several more leaves. It is smaller but still cabbage. You get all leaves off until it is no longer a “head” of cabbage. That’s how you would handle the temper or any other demon that appears to still be there. Cast it out. It becomes weaker. Keep casting it out until all of it comes out and you no longer have a bad temper. (note: not all demons are this way – some come out the first time it is cast out, in Jesus name).
So it is with healing. You may have to pray daily for your healing since it may be the demons that are keeping you from receiving your healing. You must understand that according to Ephesians 6;12 listed above, we are in a spiritual battle. Our sicknesses are a result of this battle. To win the battle and receive our healing and/or Deliverance we must fight for it. When the children of Israel went into the promised land – they had to fight their enemies and destroy them and cast them out. As the Lord was with them – so He is with us. Hebrews 13:5 “…for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] Read Joshua 1:5.
II Corinthians 10:3-4 “For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds.” (note: Warfare and praying are different in that praying is worshipping God, lifting up our petitions and supplications. Warfare is taking up your weapons and fighting the enemy.)
The Lord has given us the following (to name a few) weapons to defeat the enemy and receive our Deliverance and/or healing.
1. Word of God (Sharper than any two-edged sword. Hebrews 4:12 also read Psalm 149:6 and Revelation 1:16)
2. Fasting (Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by fasting and prayer. Matthew 17:21 also read Isaiah 58:6)
3. Praying in the Spirit (Pray at all times in the Spirit. Ephesians 6:18)
4. Faith (According to the degree of faith apportioned by God. Romans 12:3 Shield of Faith Ephesians 6:16)
5. Deliverance – casting the demons out in Jesus Name. (Mark 16:17)
Ephesians 6 goes further and says: “Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger]…” Verse 13 and 14 tells us to “stand” after we have done al that God’s Word requires just “stand.” If you look this word up in the concordance, you will see that it is an active word, not passive. We are not to just sit around thinking that – I’ve prayed, fasted, cast the demons out – that’s all I am to do. It means that as verse 14 says – tighten our belt of truth, put on the breastplate of righteousness and shod our feet in preparation to face the enemy, firm-footed, stable – grounded in God’s word and your relationship with Jesus. Verse 16 says to lift up the shield of faith to quench the flaming missiles of the wicked one. Then we pray in the Spirit and speak the Word of God into our situation. This is not a passive way of “standing”, it is standing, ready to do battle.
As we spend time (this time may be an hour, day, week, month or years), doing the warfare (praying in the Spirit, fasting, speaking the Word of God into out lives, and just believing that Jesus is our Healer) we will conquer this foe. Psalm 103:1-3 “Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my Soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name! Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my Soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits — Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases.”
Below are more scriptures on healing: Proverbs 4:20-23 “My son, attend to my words; consent and submit to my sayings. Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the center of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh. Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.”
Proverbs 16:24 “Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the mind and healing to the body.”
Jeremiah 30:17 “For I will restore health to you, I will heal your wounds, says the Lord…”
III John 2 “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] our soul keeps well and prospers.”
Luke 5:17 “…And the power of the Lord was [present] with Him to heal them.”
Luke 8:36 “And those [also] who had seen it told them how he who had demons was restored [to health].
I Peter 2:34; James 5:16; Matthew 4:23,24; Mark 3:15; Matthew 8:8,13,16; 9:35; 10:8; Acts 10:38; 4:30; 28:27
Isaiah 53:5 “But he was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for out guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.” This scripture says it all. Every sin, iniquity, guilt, condemnation, everything that bruises and wounds us, Jesus made provision for our healing and Deliverance when He gave His life for us. AMEN.
Let’s pray this simple prayer: Father, forgive me for any sins or iniquities that I have committed or my ancestors committed that caused me to become sick. Come into my heart and cleanse me with your Blood Lord Jesus. “Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise.” Jeremiah 17:14
Example of Warfare: In Jesus Name, I cover myself in the Blood of Jesus. I bind the strongman in me and I pull down the strongholds in and over me (spirit, soul and body). I break the power of satan off of and out of me, in Jesus name. I bind the demons of infirmity, sickness, disease and death. I command them to come out of me, in Jesus name. I break all curses of witchcraft from any source and I return them to the senders and bind it to them, in Jesus name. I loose healing and health in me and I ask Lord, Jesus that you restore me spirit, soul and body. Thank you for healing me. I praise and bless your name Lord Jesus. (Now pray in the Spirit)
Names of demons to bind and cast out:
Death, sickness, disease, infirmity, (name of whatever disease or sickness you have). Blind and dumb spirits, bitterness, unforgiveness, cancer, hate, anger, anxiety, tension, stress, heart attack, high blood pressure, doorkeeper to healing, despair, despondency, discouragement, self pity, rejection, nervousness, mind control (be sure to circumcise all ungodly thoughts) torment, harassment, etc. As you start casting demons out, the Lord will give you names to cast out.
Father, In Jesus name, we ask that you fill us fuller with the Holy Spirit where the demons came out. We ask that you restore our health. Amen.
So fight the good fight of faith. Remember, it is a spiritual battle. Pray and do Warfare DAILY. Keep going until you see the fruit of your labor AND RECEIVE YOUR HEALING..
If you are sick in your body the following Scriptures will encourage you.
“If you wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God and will do what is right in His sight, and will listen to and obey His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I brought upon the Egyptians, for I am the Lord Who heals you.” Exodus 16:26.
“You shall serve the Lord your God; He shall bless your bread and water, and I will take sickness from your midst.” Exodus 23:25.
“Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits — Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] your diseases.” Psalm 103:2,3.
“He sends forth His word and heals them and (DELIVERS) rescues them from the pit and destruction.” Psalm 107:20 also read Matthew 8:8 and II Kings 20:4,5.
More reading: Jeremiah 30:17; Jeremiah 33:6; Malachi 4:2; Matthew 8:16,17; 10:1; 14:14; Mark 6:12, 13, 18; Acts 5:16; 10:38; Hebrews 4:12; James 5:14, 15; 1 Peter 2:24; 3 John 1:2.
Remember that we have healings and miracles of healing, and healings with the casting OUT of demons. We always pray for healing and ask for a miracle of healing and cast OUT demons. Fasting is also a weapon of our warfare that we can use for healing.
Names of demons to cast OUT concerning sickness: Spirit of Infirmity; (name of the sickness); disease; discouragement; despondency; (name of the medicine); death; fear of death; fear of pain; sickness; hate; anger; bitterness; unforgiveness (you must forgive anyone that has hurt you); pain; torment; etc.
Break the curse of sickness that the doctors spoke over you when he diagnosed the sickness. Curse the sickness with the curse of the fig tree.
AND HE HEALED THEM
Matthew 4:23 – 24 “And He went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news (Gospel) of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every weakness and infirmity among the people. So the report of Him spread throughout all Syria, and they brought Him all who were sick, those afflicted with various diseases and torments, those under the power of demons, and epileptics, and paralyzed people, and He HEALED them.”
Healed – Strong’s Concordance – 2323 to wait upon menially, i.e. to adore (God) or to relieve (of disease) – cure, heal, worship.
JESUS DELIVERED (cast out demons), healed the people and performed miracles on the people. The people received from JESUS what they needed. Sometimes we do not have the discernment as to the cause of the problem. Sometimes we need demons cast out, sometimes healing, sometimes a miracle. Whatever the need, JESUS is there to “relieve” you of the problem so EXPECT HEALINGS, DELIVERANCE, MIRACLES.
Has anyone ever asked you why you don’t go to all the hospitals to heal the sick? The right answer is found in Luke 4:25, 26, ” 27, JESUS speaking, “But in truth I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heavens were closed up for three years and six months, so that there came a great famine over all the land; 26) And yet Elijah was not sent to a single one of them, but only to Zarephath in the country of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. [I Kings 17:1, 8-16; 18:1.] 27) And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and yet not one of them was cleansed [by being healed]–but only Naaman the Syrian. [II Kings 5:1-14.]”
