Corona vaksine forførelsen

EKSKLUSIVT – Tidligere Pfizer VP: «Regjeringen din lyver for deg på en måte som kan føre til din død.»

«Se ut av vinduet og tenk: «Hvorfor lyver regjeringen min for meg om noe så grunnleggende?» Fordi jeg tror svaret er at de kommer til å avlive deg ved hjelp av denne metoden. De kommer til å avlive deg og din familie.

7. april 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Dr. Michael Yeadon, er Pfizers tidligere visepresident og sjefs-forsker for allergi og åndedrettsvern. Han har 32 års erfaring i bransjen, som leder for forskning på å utvikle ny medisin. Han har pensjonert seg fra legemiddelgiganten og har snakket med LifeSiteNews i et telefonintervju.

Han adresserte den «beviselig falske» propagandaen fra ulike regjeringer i tilsvar på COVID-19, inkludert «løgnen» til farlige varianter, det totalitære potensialet for «vaksinepass», og den sterke muligheten for at vi har å gjøre med en «konspirasjon» som kan føre til noe langt utover blodbadet som oppleves i krigene og massakrene i det 20 århundre.

Hovedpunktene hans var:

  1. Det er «ingen mulighet» at den nåværende varianten av COVID-19 vil unnslippe immunitet. Det er «bare en løgn».
  2. Likevel gjentar regjeringer over hele verden denne løgnen, noe som indikerer at vi ikke bare er vitne til «konvergent opportunisme», men en «konspirasjon». I mellomtiden er medier og Big Tech-plattformene forpliktet til å føre den samme propaganda og sensur av sannheten.
  3. Farmasøytiske selskaper har allerede begynt å utvikle unødvendige «nye» vaksiner for nye ulike «varianter». Selskapene planlegger å produsere milliarder av medisinglass, for å møte behovet for den nåværende eksperimentelle COVID-19 «vaksinekampanje».
  4. Reguleringsorganer som U.S. Food and Drug Administration og Det europeiske legemiddelkontoret (The European Medicines Agency) har kunngjort at siden disse «videreutviklede vaksinene» vil være så lik de tidligere injeksjonene, som ble godkjent for autoritsert nødbruk. Noe som vil gjøre at legemiddelselskaper ikke vil bli pålagt å «utføre noen kliniske sikkerhetsstudier.»
  5. Dermed betyr dette praktisk talt at design og implementering av gjentatte og tvingende mRNA-vaksiner «går fra dataskjermen til et farmasøytisk selskap, og rett i armene til hundrevis av millioner mennesker, de [injiserer] en overflødig genetisk sekvens som det absolutt ikke er behov eller begrunnelse for.»
  6. Hvorfor gjør de dette? Siden ingen godartet grunn er tydeliggjort, kan innføring av vaksinepass sammen med en «utsletting av økonomien», bli noe som kan føre inn i en totalitærisme, totalt ulikt noe verden noen gang har sett. Tilbakevending av Stalins, Maos og Hitlers ondskap, altså en «gedigen befolkningsreduksjon» er fortsatt et logisk utfall.
  7. Det faktum at dette i det minste kan være sant, betyr det at alle må «kjempe som gal, for å sikre at systemet aldri blir dannet

Dr. Yeadon startet med å identifisere seg som kun en «kjedelig fyr» som begynte «å jobbe for et stort medisinfirma … lytte til de viktigste nasjonale nyhetene og lese de brede utenlandske tabloidene».

Han fortsatte: «Men det siste året har jeg innsett at min regjering og dens rådgivere, lyver i ansiktet på det britiske folk, omkring alt som har med dette Koronaviruset å gjøre. Absolutt alt. Det er en feilslutning denne ideen om asymptomatisk overføring, og om du ikke har symptomer, så er du uansett en kilde til viruset. Det er en løgn at nedstengninger fungerer, at masker har en beskyttende verdi åpenbart for deg eller noen andre, og at varianter er skumle ting, og vi trenger til og med å lukke internasjonale grenser, i tilfelle noen av disse fryktelige utenlandske variantene kommer inn.

Øverst i skjemaet

Nederst i skjemaet

– Og forresten, på toppen av den nåværende listen over genbaserte vaksiner, som vi på et mirakuløst vis har laget, vil det være noen «videreutviklede»-vaksiner, for å takle immunfluktvariantene.

«Alt jeg har fortalt deg, hver eneste en av disse tingene er beviselig falsk. Men hele vår nasjonale politikk er basert på at alt dette er den virkelige sannhet, men de tar alle feil.

‘Konspirasjon’ og ikke bare ‘konvergent opportunisme’

«Men det jeg ønsker å gjøre, er å snakke om immunflukt, fordi jeg tror det sannsynligvis kommer til å bli sluttspillet for hele denne hendelsen, som jeg tror sannsynligvis er en konspirasjon. I fjor trodde jeg det var det jeg kalte ‘konvergent opportunisme’ (Kryssende illjoval), det er en haug med forskjellige interessentgrupper som har klart å vende en verden i kaos for å presse oss i en bestemt retning. Så det så ut som det var litt knyttet sammen, men jeg var forberedt på å si at det bare var konvergens (bokstavelig betyr det å samle seg, eller kryssende, møtende).

«Jeg synes nå at dette var naiv tenkning. Det er ingen tvil i mitt sinn, om at svært betydelige maktmennesker rundt om i verden, enten har planlagt å dra nytte av neste pandemi eller skapt selve pandemien. En av disse to tingene er sant. Fordi grunnen til at det må være sant, er at dusinvis på dusinvis av regjeringer sier alle de samme løgnene og gjør de samme ineffektive tingene, som beviselig koster liv.

«Og de snakker ut fra samme type fremtidig manus som er: ‘Vi vil ikke at du skal bevege deg rundt, på grunn av disse pestaktige plagene, disse «variantene»- som jeg kaller «samiants (Tvillinger?)»  forresten, fordi de er stort sett de samme – men de sier alle dette, og de sier alle «ikke bekymre deg, det vil bli produsert flere vaksiner som vil takle de potensielle nye variasjonene. De sier alle dette, når det ganske åpenbart egentlig er nonsens .

Mulig ende på dette: vaksinepass knyttet til tildeling, grundig kontroll

«Jeg tror enden på dette kommer til å bli at , ‘alle mottar en vaksine’… Alle i verden blir overtalt, ved overtalelse, uten fullmakt, nølende vil de ta en vaksine.

«Når de gjør det, vil hvert enkelt individ på planeten ha et navn, eller et unikt digital ID og et helsestatusflagg som viser at du er «vaksinert», eller ikke … om den som innehar det, i en slags enkeltdatabase, som fungerer sentralt, som gjelder overalt for kontroll, som om det var et privilegium. Du kan enten krysse denne spesielle terskelen eller utføre denne bestemte transaksjonen eller være uavhengig av [hva] kontrollene av den ene menneskelige befolkningsdatabasen bestemmer. Og jeg tror det er det dette handler om, for når du først har fått det, blir vi leker og verden blir formet som kontrollørene over databasen ønsker det.

«Det kan for eksempel hende at etter en utsletting av banktjenester, som du kun kan bruke ved hjelp av en app, som faktisk mates av denne [databasen], ID-en din, navnet ditt og helsestatusflagget ditt.»

«Og ja, absolutt å krysse en internasjonal grense er den mest åpenbare grunnen for at disse vaksinepassene (som de kalles) brukes, men jeg har allerede hørt de snakke om at de kan være nødvendige, for at du skal komme inn i offentlige rom, lukkede offentlige rom. Jeg forventer at hvis de ville, ville du ikke kunne forlate huset ditt i fremtiden, uten riktig privilegium på appen din.

«Men selv om det ikke er [den] sanne [hensikten med vaksinekampanjen], spiller det ingen rolle, det faktum at det kan være sant betyr, at alle som [leser] dette, bør kjempe som gale for å sikre at [vaksinepass] systemet aldri dannes

«[Med et slikt system] er et eksempel på hva de kan få deg til å gjøre, og jeg tror det er dette de kommer til å få [folk] til å gjøre.

«Du kan finne opp en historie som handler om et virus og dets variasjoner, dets mutasjoner over tid. Du kan finne opp historien og sørge for at du støper den inn gjennom de bundne mediene (antar MSM), sørg for at ingen kan motvirke den (historien) ved å sensurere alternative kilder (alt. medier). Så blir folk nå kjent med denne ideen om at dette viruset muterer, som det gjør, og at det produserer varianter, som også er sant. Men de sier også at viruset ikke blir oppdaget av immunforsvaret ditt, noe som er en løgn.

«Men likevel skal vi fortelle deg at det er sant, og når vi forteller deg at det er sant og vi sier ‘men vi har kuren, her er en oppdatert vaksine,’ får du en melding, basert på dette globale, dette ene ID-systemet: ‘Bing!’ det vil komme opp og si ‘Dr. Yeadon, tid for din en oppdatert vaksine. Og forresten,’ med denne vil det si ‘dine eksisterende immunprivilegier forblir gyldige i fire uker. Men hvis du ikke får den oppdaterte vaksinen din på den tiden, vil du dessverre skade deg å være en «ut person», og det vil du ikke, eller vil du?“ Så det er slik det vil fungere, og folk vil bare møte opp og de vil få sin oppdaterte vaksine.

Myndigheter lyver, den mektige medisinindustrien beveger seg fremover, medisinregulatorer kommer seg ut av veien, og mulig ‘masse-befolkningsreduksjon’

«Men jeg vil ta deg gjennom dette, Patrick, fordi jeg er kvalifisert til å kommentere. Jeg vet ikke hva Vanden Bossche handler om. Det var ingen mulighet i det hele tatt, basert på alle varianter som er i det offentlige rom, 4000 eller så av dem, ingen av dem kommer til å unnslippe immunitet [dvs. bli farligere].

«Uansett sier politikere og helserådgivere (til mange regjeringer) at de er det. De lyver. Hvorfor skulle du gjøre det?

«Her er den andre tingen, parallelt har farmasøytiske selskaper sagt, flere av dem, det vil være ganske enkelt for oss å justere våre genbaserte vaksiner, og vi kan fremskynde dem gjennom utvikling, og vi kan hjelpe deg.

«Og her er den virkelige skremmende delen, globale legemiddelregulatorer som [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] FDA, det japanske legemiddelbyrået, Det europeiske legemiddelkontoret, har kommet sammen og kunngjort … siden oppdaterte vaksiner vil bli ansett som så lik, de som vi allerede har godkjent for nødbruksautorisasjon, vil vi ikke kreve at legemiddelselskapene utfører noen kliniske sikkerhetsstudier.

«Så du har på den ene siden, regjeringer og deres rådgivere som lyver for deg, og sier at variantene er annerledes enn det nåværende viruset, og selv om du er immun mot naturlig eksponering eller vaksinasjon, er du en risiko, og du må komme og få denne oppdaterte vaksinen. Jeg tror ikke noe av det er sant. Så hvorfor lager legemiddelfirmaet oppdaterte vaksiner? Og [med] at regulatorene (de byrådene som skulle beskytte oss mot farlige vaksiner) har kommet seg ut av veien – og hvis Yeadon har rett, og jeg er sikker på at jeg har det, ellers jeg ville ikke fortalt deg dette – du går fra dataskjermen til et av de farmasøytisk selskapene, inn i armene til hundrevis av millioner mennesker, en overflødig genetisk sekvens som det absolutt ikke er behov eller begrunnelse for.

«Og hvis du ønsket å introdusere en karakteregenskap, som kan være skadelig og til og med kunne være dødelig, og du til og med kan stille den til – ved å si ‘la oss sette den i et gen, som vil forårsake leverskade over en ni måneders periode,’ eller, føre til at nyrene dine slutter å fungere, men ikke før du støter på denne typen organisme [det ville være ganske mulig]. Bioteknologi gir deg ubegrensede måter, ærlig talt, å skade eller drepe milliarder av mennesker.

«Og siden jeg ikke kan komme på en godartet forklaring på noen av trinnene: varianter, påfyllingsvaksiner, ingen regulatoriske studier … det er ikke bare at jeg ikke kan tenke på en godartet forklaring; Trinnene som er beskrevet, og scenariet som er beskrevet, og den nødvendige typen løsning på dette falske problemet, kommer til å tillate det jeg nettopp beskrev: ukjente og unødvendige gensekvenser injisert i armene til potensielt milliarder av mennesker uten grunn.

«Jeg er veldig bekymret … denne måten vil bli brukt til en befolkningsreduksjon i større mengder, fordi jeg ikke kan tenke meg noen godartet forklaring.

‘Absurd umulige’ varianter vil unnslippe immunitet, ‘bare en løgn’

«Hvis jeg kan vise deg at en hovedhendelsene, at regjeringer rundt om i verden forteller folket løgner, bør du ta min 32 år med erfarne meninger, som sier det meste, om ikke alt, at dette er en løgn.»

«Den største ulike varianten (av viruset) er bare 0.3% forskjellig fra dem opprinnelige sekvensen som sendt ut av Wuhan i … januar 2020. 0,3% [er] den [varianten] som er den mest forskjellige på planeten så langt. Og nå er en annen måte å si det på: ‘Alle variantene er ikke mindre enn 99.7% identiske med hverandre.’

«Nå tenker du kanskje: ‘hmm, 0,3%, er det nok [til å unnslippe immunitet og bli farligere]?’ Svaret er nei. Kom deg bort, du vet, kom deg ut herfra…

«Det menneskelige immunforsvaret er et fantastisk under. Det den gjør når den står overfor et nytt patogen som dette, så har du  profesjonelle celler, de kalles profesjonelle antigenpresentasjons-celler – de er slags grove tøffe ting som har en tendens til ikke bøye seg av for virus. Og deres jobb er å gripe fremmede ting i nærmiljøet og rive dem lem fra lem [inne i cellen]. De skjærer dem virkelig opp i hundrevis av biter. Og så presenterer de disse brikkene på overflatene av cellen sin til andre biter av immunforsvaret ditt, og utrolig nok, på grunn av variasjonen som Gud og naturen ga deg, en stor variasjon for å gjenkjenne fremmede ting, og kroppen din ender opp med å bruke 15 til 20 forskjellige spesifikke elementer som den oppdager rundt dette viruset. De kalles epitoper, i utgangspunktet er de akkurat som små bilder av detaljene om dette viruset. Det er det de gjør. Og det er det som kalles repertoaret ditt, immunrepertoaret ditt er som 20 forskjellige nøyaktige fotografier, nærbilder, av forskjellige biter av dette viruset.

«Nå, hvis en liten del av viruset endres, som de 0.3% jeg nettopp har beskrevet, hvis du blir infisert igjen av den varianten, vil dine profesjonelle celler rive inn i det viruset og kutte det i stykker, presentere dem igjen, og si «se her», de fleste av brikkene som du allerede har sett og anerkjent, er fortsatt der i denne varianten.

«Det er absolutt ingen sjanse for at de ikke vil bli gjenkjent, hver eneste en, og det er det som kreves for immunflukt, for å unnslippe immuniteten din. Det må presentere deg som et nytt patogen. Det må være tilstrekkelig annerledes at når det er kuttet opp av dine profesjonelle brikker celler, vil det ikke finne stort sett det samme som det har sett før. Og det er bare absurd umulig når du bare har variert 0.3%, så det er 99.7% (lignende).

«Du kan gå og sjekke det, ved for eksempel se på dokumentene til en som heter Alison Tarke. Eller også Shane Crotty, og alle de andre medforfatterne.

«Og før dem, som kommer fra min teoretiske forståelse av multi-locus immunitet, som er det jeg bare svakt prøvde å beskrive, på hva som faktisk skjer … Hvis ditt [immunsystem] presenteres med noe som inneholder selv halvparten av de lignende brikkene, så vil ikke kroppen din på noen måte si, ‘det er et nytt patogen.’

«Så ideen om at 0,3% kunne ha en sjanse til å komme seg rundt immuniteten, er bare en løgn. Det er ikke engang en mulighet.

«Jeg tror ikke 3% ville være nok. Det er 10 ganger mer variasjon enn det som har skjedd på 16 måneder [med dette viruset]. Jeg tror ikke engang 30% forskjell ville være nok. Så jeg sier at selv 100 ganger mer variasjon enn det som faktisk har skjedd, så ville jeg fortsatt satse på at det menneskelige immunforsvaret ikke blir lurt at dette er nye patogenet.

» Jeg har snakket om dette med flere professorer i immunologi, og de var enige med meg, det er som, ‘hvorfor spør du meg om dette?’

– Så jeg tror at det jeg nettopp har sagt, er at regjeringer og deres rådgivere i flere land lyver om varianter. Det er en massiv greie! Du burde sjekke det ut. Leserne dine bør sjekke det ut. Hvis det er sant, synes du ikke det er skremmende?! Det var da jeg innså det.

«Så de lyver om varianter, og da, selvfølgelig, siden [variantene] ikke er veldig forskjellige, trenger du ikke en ‘oppfølgnings vaksine. Nå bør du få hårene på baksiden av nakken opp, fordi de lager dem akkurat !

» De lager milliarder av medisinflasker av dette. Og de vil være tilgjengelige innen utgangen av året.

– Og jeg tror de vil kreve at folk først er på En Verdens Databases vaksinepass, og så skrider det frem ved flere oppdateringer, og hvis det tar litt lengre tid, vil det ta litt lengre tid.

«Men dette forsvinner ikke. Det vil ikke forsvinne før mange nok folk protesterer, hvis de noen gang gjør det, og sier ‘dette er en haug med svindel og vi tar friheten våre tilbake, så du kan likegodt gjøre slutt på det nå.’

«Fordi en person som roper ut i villmarken og alle de andre akademikerne ser den andre veien, vil bare få oss til å redusere denne veien av destruksjon med muligens en uke utsettelse, enn om jeg ikke hadde sagt noe, men vi går fortsatt ned til helvete.

«Så det er derfor jeg frykter dette.

– Variantene er ikke annerledes. Jeg kaller dem «samiants»… De er stort sett de samme. De er ikke forskjellige. Derfor trenger du ikke en oppgraderingsvaksine, så hold deg langt borte fra alle sammen. «

Hvorfor lyver min regjering for meg? Fordi ‘de ønsker å utrydde deg.’

«[Og hvis du erkjenner at våre regjeringer er involvert i en stor verifiserbar løgn], ikke bare slå av datamaskinen og gå til kveldsmaten. stopp. Se ut av vinduet og tenk: ‘Hvorfor lyver regjeringen min for meg om noe så grunnleggende?’ Fordi jeg tror svaret er at de kommer til å avlive deg ved hjelp av denne metoden. De kommer til å avlive deg og familien din.

«Eugenikere (de som ønsker befolkningsreduksjon og kontroll) har fått tak i maktens spaker, og dette er en veldig kunstnerisk måte å få deg til å stille opp og motta en uspesifisert ting som vil skade deg. Jeg aner ikke hva det faktisk vil være, men det vil ikke være en vaksine fordi du trenger ingen. Og det vil ikke avlive deg når du får vaksinen, fordi da ville du se det.

«Det kan være noe som vil produsere normal patologi, det vil være på forskjellige tidspunkter mellom vaksinasjon og hendelsen, det vil være sannsynlig noe de benekter, fordi det vil være noe annet som skjer i verden på den tiden, i sammenheng med din bortgang, eller bortgangen for dine barn vil det se normalt ut (altså om du eller dine barn dør etter en lengre periode, så vil man mistenke vaksinene mindre).

– Det ville jeg gjort hvis jeg ville kvitte meg med 90 eller 95 prosent av verdens befolkning. Og jeg tror det er det de gjør.»

«Nå vet jeg ikke [sikkert] at de kommer til å bruke dette [systemet] til å drepe deg, men jeg kan ikke komme på en godartet grunn, og med den kraften kan de absolutt skade deg, eller kontrollere deg, så du bør protestere [og anstrenge deg til å gjøre motstand].»

Folk kan ikke takle dette nivået av ondskap, men Sovjet, Hitler, Mao viser at dette er mulig

«Det har blitt helt klart for meg, selv når jeg snakker med intelligente mennesker, venner, bekjente … Og de kan se at jeg forteller dem noe viktig, men de kommer til det punktet [hvor jeg sier] ‘din regjering lyver for deg på en måte som kan føre til din død og dine barns død,’ og de klarer ikke å engasjere seg i det. Og jeg tror kanskje 10% av dem forstår hva jeg sa til dem, og 90% av de fortrenger deres forståelse av det, fordi det er for vanskelig. Og min bekymring er at vi kommer til å tape dette, fordi folk ikke vil forstå muligheten for at noen er så onde …

«Men jeg minner deg om hva som skjedde i Russland i de 20`ende Århundre, hva som skjedde fra 1933 til 1945, hva som skjedde i, du vet, Sørøst-Asia i noen av de mest forferdelige tidene i etterkrigstiden. Og det som skjedde i Kina med Mao og så videre.

«Vi trenger bare å vende blikket tilbake to eller tre generasjoner. Rundt oss er det folk som er like fryktelige, som de menneskene som gjorde dette. De er overalt rundt oss. Så jeg sier til folk, det eneste forskjellen på det de gjorde, og nå, er medisinen (se oversettelse – men jeg tror det er dette han mener).

– Men egentlig er dette nok mindre blodig, det er mindre personlig, ikke sant? De som styrer dette… Det blir mye lettere for dem. De trenger ikke å skyte noen i ansiktet. De trenger ikke å slå noen i hjel med et balltre, eller fryse dem, sulte dem, få dem til å fungere til de dør. Alle disse tingene skjedde to eller tre generasjoner tilbake, og våre besteforeldre eller besteforeldre var enten ofre for dette, eller de var faktisk medlemmer av det, eller i det minste var de vitne til det fra utlandet. Så nære er vi.

«Og alt jeg sier er at noen tidsskifter er som dette, at det skjer igjen, men nå bruker de molekylærbiologi.

Og de som er med på dette, tror jeg sannsynligvis vil si: ‘Jeg fulgte bare ordre,’ noe vi har hørt før.

«Men jeg vet det, fordi jeg har snakket med mange mennesker, og noen av dem har sagt «Jeg vil ikke tro at du har rett, så jeg vil bare legge det bort, fordi om det er sant, klarer jeg ikke å takle det.» Og jeg tror… alt du trenger å gjøre er å finne en god grunn til å advare folk: ‘Ikke ta vaksinen, med mindre du er i en medisinsk risiko for å dø av viruset!’ Det virker for meg som det er en ganske god linje å følge!

Mot en løsning – «Vi trenger Gud»

«Jeg er en forsker, og jeg kan fortelle deg, at å snakke med ikke-forskere, ved hjelp av vitenskap som et verktøy, vil ikke fungere. Det vil mislykkes.

«Så vi trenger filosofer, folk som forstår logikk, religion, og lignende, [de må] kjempe med dette, og begynne å snakke på et språk folk vil forstå. For hvis vi overlater det til forskere, folk som meg, selv om jeg er velmenende, er jeg en jabbende fremmed, når det gjelder de fleste mennesker på gaten. De vil ikke tro at regjeringen lyver til dem, de tror ikke regjeringen noen gang vil gjøre noe som vil skade dem, men de [gjør slike ting].»

Til slutt, i en e-postkorrespondanse, konkluderte Dr. Yeadon: «Jeg har sist tatt til å underskrive med ‘Måtte Gud redde oss’, fordi jeg tror vi trenger Gud nå mer enn noen gang siden WW2.»

Djevelens juridiske rettigheter

Djevelens juridiske rettigheter ovenfor menneskenaturen . 

På grunn av syndefallet så har vi mistet retten til å herske over jorda , vi lot Djevelen ta ifra oss denne retten da vi i Adam vår stamfar valgte å høre på Satans løgner istedenfor Gud og hans ord.

1mos 3:1 

Men  slangen var listigere enn alle dyr på marken som Gud Herren hadde gjort, og den sa til kvinnen: Har Gud virkelig sagt: I skal ikke ete av noget tre i haven? kvinnen så at treet var godt å ete av, og at det var en lyst for øinene, og at det var et prektig tre, siden en kunde få forstand av det, og hun tok av frukten og åt; og hun gav sin mann med sig, og han åt. Da  blev begges øine åpnet, og de blev var at de var nakne, og de heftet fikenblad sammen og bandt dem om livet. 

«De ble var at de var nakne » ,Frykten kom inn i menneskenaturen .

Djevelen fikk sin makt over jorda , og menneskeslekten ,ved at mennesket valgte å høre på ham istedenfor Gud Herren i hagen . 

Lukas 4:6 

Og Djevelen sa til Jesus: 

Dig vil jeg gi makten over alt dette og disse rikers herlighet; for mig er det overgitt, og jeg gir det til hvem jeg vil . 

Jorden og dens riker blev overgitt til Djevelen ved Adams ulydighet .

Johannes’ første brev 3:8 

Den  som gjør synd, er av djevelen; for djevelen synder fra begynnelsen . 

Vi ser at når vi synder, og gjør opprør imot Gud så er vi kommet ut av Guds vilje og inn i Djevelens vilje . 

Derfor sier skriften at vi da er av Djevelen ,dvs at vi følger og har Djevelens natur og ikke Guds natur som er renhet ,rettferdighet ,og hellighet . 

Når vi synder så gir vi avkall på Guds beskyttelse og værn i våre liv.

For han kan ikke beskytte oss slik som han ønsker hvis vi tillater synd i våre liv slik som ,opprør , løgn ,og urenhet ,som  Djevelen har krav på .

OPPRØR ER SYND

For Djevelen syndet fra begynnelsen . 

Synd er opprør ,og det er det samme som å samarbeide med Djevelen imot Guds hellige lov . 

5Mos.28: 15 

dersom du ikke hører på Herrens, din Guds røst, så du akter vel på å holde alle hans bud og hans lover, som jeg gir dig idag, da skal alle disse forbannelser komme over dig og nå dig: 

Joh.5:14 

Siden traff Jesus ham i templet og sa til ham: Se, du er blitt frisk; synd ikke mere, forat ikke noget verre skal vederfares dig! 

Johannes’ åpenbaring 12:12 

Derfor fryd eder, I himler, og I som bor i dem! Ve jorden og havet! for djevelen er faret ned til eder i stor vrede, fordi han vet at han bare har en liten tid. 

Satan går omkring på jorda i dag og søker opp kristne og vantro som tillater synd i livet sitt . Bibelen Sier han er en brølende løve .

Han som stjeler , myrder, og ødelegger mennesket til ånd, sjel og legeme har gode tider i verden pga av syndefallet ,og synden og fryktens og dødens ånd.som har trengt igjennom generasjonene på Jorden, slik at mennesket blir født inn i denne verden med en natur som er som Djevelen ond og opprørsk imot Gud .

romerne 5:12 

Derfor likesom synden kom inn i verden ved ett menneske, og døden ved synden, og døden således trengte igjennem til alle mennesker, fordi de syndet alle – 

Gud kan ikke samarbeide med syndere , for de er lovbrytere . 

Gud kan bare samarbeide med mennesker som er rettferdiggjort for ham ved sin tro på Jesu blod . 

Satan representerer det onde , og når vi mennesker velger å gjøre synd så gjør vi  Djevelens  vilje og går imot Guds vilje .

Og ved at vi synder enten som troende eller vantro, så blir det et skille imellom mennesket og skaperen Gud . 

Salmenes bok 66:18 

Hadde jeg urett for øie i mitt hjerte, så vilde Herren ikke høre. 

Gud er Hellig og ren, ingen synd kan komme i hans nærhet . Han tåler ikke den minste synd eller urett i sin nærhet .Men Guds frelsesplan har gjort denne verdens  gud til skamme . 

Halleluja Ordet om korset forløser ,

Menneskeheten ifra syndefallets konsekvenser og forliket oss med Gud  Halleluja priset Og lovet Være Herrens navn ! 

Rom. 5:15-17 

Men ikke er det med nådegaven således som med fallet; for er de mange død ved den enes fall, da er meget mere Guds nåde og gaven i det ene menneske Jesu Kristi nåde blitt overvettes rik for de mange. 

Og ikke er det med gaven således som det blev da én syndet; for dommen blev til fordømmelse for éns skyld, men nådegaven til frifinnelsesdom for mange falls skyld

For  kom døden til å herske ved den ene på grunn av den enes fall, så skal meget mere de som får nådens og rettferdighets-gavens overvettes rikdom, leve og herske ved den ene, Jesus Kristus. 

Se her venner ,har Gud ført oss tilbake til hva vi mistet i Adam . 

Halleluja igjen skal vi råde og herske med Kristus , pga rettferdiggjørelse for Gud ved Jesu dyrebare rettferdiggjørende blod !

Gled deg og fryd deg du Guds menighet over full frelse i Jesu hellige blod , og Jesu sår fra alle Satans plager ,og lidelser ,og all undertrykkelse.

Vh deres glade tjener i Herren

han fornekte seg selv ! Si nei til vår egen vilje
når den gjør opprør imot Jesu lære .

Ja men sånn er det umulig for oss mennesker
Å leve sier du ?

Ja hvis du har tenkt å få til dette i egen kraft,
Så er det helt umulig ja .

Men jeg og du er ikke kalt til å løfte
oss selv etter håret, for slik blir det når vi
Prøver på å få til noen ting i Guds rike i egen kraft.

Nei nei ! Nåden kom ved Jesus !

Det er Guds fullkomne ufortjente godhet
Og kjærlighet som gjør verket i vårt hjerte,

Bare hør på dette Ordet :

Romerne 5:5
og håpet gjør ikke til skamme, fordi Guds kjærlighet er utøst i våre hjerter ved den Hellige Ånd, som er oss gitt.

Kristendom er ikke bud og regler men liv .
Jesu kjærlighet til Faderen er i oss , utøst i
Vår ånd og hjerte ved Talsmannen som
Bor i oss ! Ånden i oss bringer denne
Fullkomne kjærligheten og hengivelsen
Til Jesus og Faderen til vår ånd .

Halleluja Guds folk !

Alt er i vår ånd , eller vårt hjerte om du vil .

Men denne fullkomne kjærligheten må frigjøres
I vårt indre , slik at den kan flyte fritt og uhindret
Fra vår ånd til Faderen og til menneskene
I rundt oss i vår hverdag .

Hvordan kan den frigjøres ?

Mesteren har løsningen venner. Johannes 14:21

Den som har mine bud og holder dem, han er den som elsker mig; men den som elsker mig, skal elskes av min Fader, og jeg skal elske ham og åpenbare mig for ham.

Har mine bud og holder dem : Det betyr på
Godt norsk venner : Lydighet .

Lydighet imot den kjærligheten som er utøst I mitt og ditt hjerte

En kjærlighet som er fri ifra allt opprør imot Guds Ord og Åndens ledelse i vårt indre.

Halleluja, Pris Herren !

Som han var i verden sånn er
Jeg og du i verden i dag , for hans Ånd Er i oss og hjelper oss når vi vil adlyde.

Gud kaller sitt folk i dag til å bare se på Jesus og omvende oss av hele vårt Hjerte fra å se på oss selv.

Alt er mulig for den ydmyke, for han får nåde
Og hans nåde er nok for oss !!

Halleluja priset være han som bor i oss, og som Har gitt oss kjærlighetens Ånd !

La jubelen lyde Guds menighet , kjærlighetens
Gud bor i oss !

Halleluje all ære til Jesus som er vårt liv !

Vh
Deres ringe tjener i Herren

DISNEY FORFØRT AV PRID I DAG

PRIDBEVEGELSEN LGBT HAR INTATT DISNEY

BREAKING NEWS:

Disneyland Paris just celebrated Disney’s first «Gay Pride Parade.»

CitizenGO supporters started a wildfire of opposition, and inside sources at Disney have confirmed that Disney’s leadership is very worried about the global mobilization that CitizenGO is leading against their Pride Parade.

So, I think we should double the pressure, or more. In just a couple of weeks, CitizenGO sent over 400,000 signatures to Disney. Now, I ask you to help me generate one million signatures (or more!) addressed to the Walt Disney Company President & CEO (Robert A. Iger) and the Disney Board of Directors. Please sign this petition to prevent the next gay pride parade and similar events from happening in any Disney park. Sign this petition to ask Disney’s President & CEO to protect children and families by canceling any future gay pride parades and events.

You see, Disney may think it is safe to pander to the loud voices of LGBT activists, but the company’s finances and stock value are built on the support of families. By signing this petition and encouraging others to sign, you send a clear message to the Disney company — stop promoting homosexuality or lose your good name … and our money.Warning: Disney parks are no longer family friendly!

PRIDBEVEGELSEN LGBT FORFØRER BARNA OG DISNEY ER REDSKAPET

Disney is flaunting their new partnership with the “LGBT” community. They recently hosted their very first gay pride parade at Disneyland Paris. This event was an expansion of a small party they promoted in the park last year, and was the first outright parade celebrating the gay lifestyle.

PROPAGANDAMASKINEN TIL LGBT I DISNEY KORNSERNET

The growth of gay pride events at Disney is not limited to its Paris location. At Universal Studios Hollywood, in Southern California, Disney is helping to organize the “Pride Is Universal” event. And Disney is supporting the expansion of “Gay Days,” which is held every August at Walt Disney World in Florida.

This is a deceptive move to push the LGBT political agenda and expose children and families to lewd behavior.

Similar parades around the world are notorious for exposing viewers to:

  • Participants wearing only their underwear or leather bondage gear
  • Topless dancers
  • Lewd dancing
  • People engaging in public sex acts
  • Semi-nude or completely nude people

Around 157 million people visited Disney parks in 2018. Disney is an empire built on attracting families with children. Gay pride related events are very public, with the potential to become an X-rated peep show. How many of the millions of park attendees do you think will be exposed if Disney continues to organize Gay pride events?

I’m sure the LGBT lobby is already counting this as a victory for their dangerous agenda.

PRIDBEVEGELSENS LGBT HJERNEVASKER VÅRE BARN

We cannot sit idle and remain voiceless while gay pride events are targeting family-friendly venues. Join this call to action to stand against Disney’s attempt to indoctrinate our children in an entertainment area that is intended for all audiences.

VICTORIOUS FAITH

World evangelization may be accomplished only by preaching the gospel with
signs following – – – SIGNS! WONDERS! MIRACLES! The time truly is at hand
when BOLD METHODS will have to be used if we hope to get the job done quickly.
This is a task far beyond the abilities of any individual or group. It is a task that will
require the resources of the WHOLE CHURCH. Just before Jesus went back to
heaven He prayed, not only for His disciples, but also for those who were to follow

  • – – OTHER BELIEVERS. He prayed that God would keep believers from the evil
    in the world. GOD WILL KEEP US IF WE WILL ALLOW HIM TO DO SO! If
    God keeps us from evil, and we pay the price for God’s faith – – – WHAT IS
    KEEPING SO MANY FROM FOLLOWING HIM INTO THE WHITENED
    HARVEST FIELDS?
    Jesus, in praying for believers, told God He was not praying that God would
    take us OUT OF THE WORLD, but that we would be kept FROM THE EVIL. As
    God had sent Him INTO THE WORLD, HE REMINDED GOD THAT HE WASSENDING HIS DISCIPLES INTO THE WORLD. If we are followers of His
    today, THE SAME COMMISSION IS OURS! “Neither pray I for these alone, but
    for them also which shall believe on me through their word.” John 17:20.
    To get the world evangelized we are going to have to MOVE AS ONE MAN,
    OR ONE BODY. Jesus prayed that we might be ONE — “That they all may be one;
    as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us.” John 17:21a.
    This task will never be accomplished by criticizing the efforts put forth by other
    believers on the field. EVERY WORKER IN THE VINEYARD IS NEEDED.
    “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them,
    because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.”
    “Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the
    labourers are few;”
    “Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers
    into his harvest.” Matthew 9:36-38.
    Instead of criticizing others who are laboring on the field, too, we should be
    obedient and pray that God will send forth MORE laborers into the whitened harvest
    field.
    “And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy
    name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not
    us.”
    “But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in
    my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.”
    “For he that is not against us is on our part.”
    “For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye
    belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.”
    “And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is
    better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast
    into the sea.” Mark 9:38-42.
    EVERY WORKER ON THE FIELD IS NEEDED! Some may accomplish
    more or less than others, BUT ALL OF THEM ARE NEEDED! God is not sending

LESSON 4 ,VICTORIOUS FAITH NO. 1

INTRODUCTION
“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a
witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” Matthew 24:14.
In the business world, most business establishments that continue to fail to
achieve the results for which they have been established, will seek professional help
before all their effort and investment is lost, In such cases, an efficiency expert is
generally employed to search for the trouble. This expert will check the weak spots of
the business, faults, failures, wastes, etc. He is not influenced by the way things have
always been done, but when he has completed his investigation, he will present facts
and a perfect plan of operation to achieve top performance in the business.
The Church was established by Jesus Christ to evangelize the world, but it has
consistently failed to achieve the results for which it was established. It is only wisdom
to consult some experts where God’s work is concerned. In this lesson and the next
one we will look right into the Word of God to check our faults, failures, etc., and we
are going to find some answers. Not only will we find WHY we have failed to achieve
the results God requires of us, but we ARE GOING TO HAVE A PERFECT
PLAN OF OPERATION FOR THE SUCCESS GOD EXPECTS. When we begin
to employ the methods of advance and conquest, it will hasten the return of our Lord!
According to the Bible, “ . . . this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all
the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” Matthew 24:14.
“ . . . the gospel must first be published among all nations.” Mark 13:10. Again God’s
Word says, “ . . . Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
Mark 16:15. Christ will not return until this is accomplished. No sane person dare
contradict the divine urgency of this command. The sooner we get the gospel to everycreature, the sooner our Lord can return.
The gospel means GOOD NEWS to the sick, the oppressed, the demon
possessed, those bound with demon powers and unclean spirits, and to those bound
by sin. It means to PREACH THE WORD, HEAL THE SICK AND CAST OUT
DEVILS.
The only way Christ ever ministered to the sick was to HEAL THEM! The
only way He ever ministered to the oppressed and to the demon possessed was to cast
out the demons. His method of ministering to the sinner was, “ . . . I rebuke and
chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.” Revelation 3:19. “Preach the word; be
instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and
doctrine.” II Timothy 4:2.
Nothing but the miraculous ministry of Christ has ever or ever will turn the
heathen masses to Christ. Our concern is PREACHING THE GOSPEL WITH
SIGNS FOLLOWING; confirmed with miracles and wonders.
The supreme task of the Church is to evangelize the millions of heathen people
in the world. One person cannot accomplish this task alone. Many believers in many
places, moving as one body can get the job done quickly.
Just before Jesus was betrayed by Judas Iscariot He prayed and asked God to
glorify Him with the glory which he had with God before the world was. At the same
time He prayed for His disciples and all believers who were to be added to the
number.
“And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world . . . Holy
Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that
they may be one, as we are.”
“While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou
gayest me I Have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that
the scripture might be fulfilled.”
“I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou
shouldest keep them from the evil.”
“As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the
world.”
“Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me

through their word;”
“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they
also may be one in us . . . :”
“And the glory which thou gayest me I have given them; that they may be one,
even as we are one:”
“I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; . . .” John
17:11, 12, 15, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23.
SIGNS! WONDERS! MIRACLES! This is the means by which we get the ears
of the heathen open to the gospel.
“ . . .let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and
let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” Hebrews 12:1.
If you ever have a supernatural ministry, a ministry of the miraculous, you are
going to have to keep your eyes on Jesus, stay in the race and finish your course and
be able to say, when YOUR time of departure from this world comes,
“ . . . the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have
finished my course, I have kept the faith:” II Timothy 4:6, 7.

Faith in God is more than faith in His promises. It is also faith in His commands.

Faith in God is more than faith in His promises. It is also faith in His
commands.
On one occasion, Jesus spoke to a man who had suffered with an infirmity for
thirty eight years, “Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.” John 5:8. Immediately the man
was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked.
In Acts 3:2-8, a man who had been lame from his mother’s womb, was carried
and laid daily at the gate of the temple which was called “Beautiful” to ask alms of
them that entered into the temple. Peter and John were about to enter the temple one
day, when this man asked an alms. Peter said,
“ . . . Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name ofJesus Christ of Nazereth rise up and walk.” Acts 3:6
Peter took the man by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his
feet and ankle bones received strength, and the man leaping up, stood and walked,
and entered the temple with Peter and John, walking, leaping, and praising God.
God’s command is not always a simple test of faith, it may be a test of
obedience as well.
In John 9:1, Jesus met a man who was blind from his birth. He made clay and
anointed the eyes of the blind man with it, and gave the man a command: “ . . . Go,
wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way
therefore, and washed, and came seeing.” John 9:7.
The blind man’s eyes were opened when he obeyed the command of Jesus.
Healing, or a deliverance of any kind, may be down the road of obedience.
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be
healed. . . .” James 5:16.
Secret sins can destroy faith and hinder a person from receiving healing and
other deliverances as well. In my ministry many people come to be prayed for but
receive nothing until they become humble and willing to confess their faults,
according to the scripture.
Many people have wronged others and have been unwilling to confess that they
have been wrong. With such rebellion in their hearts they cannot have real faith for
deliverance. God promises that if these faults are confessed, both the sin and the
sickness shall be taken away.
One day, Jesus cursed a fig tree because it produced no fruit. “ . . . No man eat
fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.” Mark 11:14. Apparently
there was no change in the appearance of the tree at the moment. But the next day
when Jesus and His disciples passed again that way, Peter was amazed, and said to
Jesus . . . “Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst, is withered away.” Mark
11:21. In this short time it had “dried up at the roots,” and was withered away. Many
diseases are healed in the same way. The “root” of the disease is cursed in the name of
Jesus, and no matter what the disease may be, whether goiter, cancer, tumor, or some
other sickness, IT MUST EITHER PASS FROM THE BODY, OR
DISINTEGRATE INTO THE BLOOD STREAM AND BE CARRIED AWAY. It
is easy to understand how a person could be truly healed, and yet continue to suffersome discomfort during the time this process is taking place. The suffering may even
be more acute for a short period of time, than it was before, as this dead foreign tissue
is being separated from the body and carried away. At this point many cast away their
confidence because they do not recognize what is happening, and give testimony to
the fact that they are not healed. Fear, loss of faith, and acceptance of Satan ‘s
suggestions in regard to the case, opens the door for Satan to replace the very thing
that had been cast out by the power of God. The healing is lost before any of its
benefits are recognized.
Although many cases of cancer are healed in this way, I have known many
instances of cancer disappearing instantly.
God has no set pattern whereby He heals or brings other deliverances. He
performs miracles in the way that brings most glory to His name. You must learn,
Student, and be able to teach others, to ACCEPT DELIVERANCES JUST AS GOD
GIVES THEM. If it is instantaneous, shout the praises of God and go on your way
rejoicing. If it is gradual, thank God for your healing, or deliverance, just the same,
and look forward joyfully to the time when you will be fully restored to health. If God
has cursed the root of a disease, as He did the fig tree, DON’T LET YOUR FAITH
WAVER, AND TEACH OTHERS TO HOLD STEADY, KNOWING THAT IT
IS FAITH THAT MAKES ANYONE WHOLE. But if God has commanded you
TO GO, TO DO, OR TO SPEAK, do not think that time alone will mend matters
— BE OBEDIENT TO GOD, AND THE VICTORY WILL COME!
MEMORY WORK FOR THIS LESSON

Sickness IS NOT the will of God for His people

Sickness IS NOT the will of God for His people. IT IS THE WORK OF THE
DEVIL. It is the will of God that His people prosper and be in health — ”Beloved, I
wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul
prospereth.” III John 2. So, God’s people should come to Him for healing, or for
any other need (if they have paid the price for God’s faith) WITHOUT
WAVERING—IN FULL ASSURANCE THAT OUR PRAYERS WILL BE
HEARD AND ANSWERED.
“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything
according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us,
whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of
him.” I John 5:14, 15.
According to the testimony of God Himself, Job was a perfect and upright
man, “ . . . one that feareth God, and escheweth evil.” Job 1:8. No divinity was
attributed to Job. No superhuman perfection was attributed to him. Any Christian
can and should be at least as perfect as Job was, for our opportunities, privileges, and
power are far ahead of his. Jesus left us this commandment to be “ . . . therefore
perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:48. The
Scriptures, which Job never had the privilege of reading, because he lived before they
were written, were given “That the man of God may be perfect, . . .” II Timothy
3:17.
We may need to say with Paul, “Not as though I had already attained, either
were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which I am
also apprehended of Christ Jesus . . . but this one thing I do, forgetting those things
which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press
toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God . . .” Philippians 3:12-14. Our
goal should be kept before us at all times. PERFECTION IS THE GOAL! NEVER
MAKE EXCUSES FOR IMPERFECTIONS.
God accounted Job as perfect, because he sincerely feared God, and eschewed
(shunned, found no pleasure in doing) evil. However, there were reasons enough in
Job himself for his trouble being allowed to come upon him. God does not submit
His faithful and beloved followers to the tortures of Satan for no better reason than
to merely prove a point to the devil. Job’s faithfulness WAS proved, and Satan’s
boast proved empty, but a far greater issue than that was involved in the trial of Job.
EVEN A PERFECT MAN CAN KEEP GROWING IN FAVOR WITH GOD.
While Job was commended for his fear of God, that was not Job’s ONLY fear.When he found that he was bereft of family and possessions, suffering in body,
scorned by his wife, misunderstood and accused by his friends, he cried out, “ . . . the
thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come
unto me.” Job 3:25.
Fear is not faith. Faith is our protection against sin and sickness. Faith is our
defense when these enemies lay hold upon us. Satan saw it as a hedge around Job,
through which he could not penetrate, but fear, being opposed to faith, makes an
opening in the hedge through which Satan may enter. Job is not to be condemned for
his attitude, for he had not the Scriptures we have today. His knowledge of God and
His dealings with Job came only from oral tradition, and an incomplete direct
personal revelation of God. (The book of Job is generally recognized as the first
written book of the Bible.) Since “ . . .faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the
Word of God,” it is little wonder that Job should have failed to have faith sufficient to
protect him from Satan’s attack.
Having God’s wonderful promises so easily accessible, WE SHOULD GRASP
THEM BY FAITH AND STEP FORTH INTO THE GLORIOUS LIBERTY OF
THE SONS OF GOD.
God did not afflict Job — Satan did, but with God’s permission.
“So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with boils
from the sole of his foot unto his crown.” Job 2:7.
In his desperation, Job examined his attitude toward God, and through the
struggles of his soul, he found a new relationship with God. He had feared God; he
had striven to do right; and he had avoided evil. But now, when his wife urged him to
curse God and die (“ . . . Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.”
Job 2:9), and his friends accused him of every kind of sin (calling them by name), Job
discovered that only one thing remained a firm anchor in his fast changing world. In
his anguish he cried, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him . . .” Job 13:15. GOD
COULD NOT DISREGARD SUCH FAITH AS THAT. Immediately God began to
work toward Job’s deliverance. He revealed Himself to Job in such a splash of
splendor as has seldom been equaled in His dealings with any one man. In the light of
this revelation, Job had an opportunity to compare his own righteousness with that of
his Maker, and found himself sadly lacking. He then approached God in a spirit of
true humility and repentance mixed with faith, “Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent
in dust and ashes.” Job 42:6.
Job was even willing to pray for his accusers, and “ . . .the Lord turned thecaptivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: . . .” Job 42:10.
After Job had repented of his self-righteousness and lack of trust, proven his
humility and forgiveness by praying for his friends, and God sets him free from the
CAPTIVITY OF SATAN, we see Job restored to all his former status, plus even
more than he had at the beginning. He lived another one hundred and forty years, and
there is no record that he ever had another boil to annoy him in all those years.
Student, if you have been down in an ash heap moaning over your fate, and
blaming it on God, or some one else, TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT JOB —
PLACE YOUR TRUST IN GOD, as Job did, THOUGH IT MAY SEEM TO
LEAD ONLY TO DEATH. Start searching the Scriptures, reading them prayerfully,
and as though you had never heard those explanations men have added by their
traditions. Look to God HIMSELF to find the cause of your sickness, other
bondages, or lack of faith, AND WHEN YOU HAVE FOUND THE CAUSE, GET
RID OF IT. Like Job, you will be set free, for GOD IS THE SAME TODAY AS HE
WAS IN JOB’S DAY.
Some people even say Paul had his own private physician, Luke, who traveled
with him to watch after his health. Luke HAD been trained as a physician, “Luke, the
beloved physician, . . .” Colossians 4:14, but there is as much reason to declare that
Jesus took Matthew with Him as His private tax collector, as to say that Luke was
chosen to go with Paul because of his skill as a physician. There is no record in the
Scripture that Luke ever treated Paul or any sick person in any place that they visited,
in the capacity of a physician. As the author of his writings in the Bible he records
many miraculous healings. NEVER ONCE IS IT MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE
THAT LUKE OR ANY OTHER PHYSICIAN APPLIED ANY MEDICAL AID
AS SUPPLEMENTAL TO THE MIRACLE-WORKING POWER OF GOD. No
doubt, Luke, being a physician, was especially impressed with the ease with which
Christ and His Spirit-filled disciples relieved diseases that the physicians had spent
much time and effort trying in vain to heal. In fact, it is Luke who records that “ . . .a
woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon
physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border
of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.” Luke 8:43,44.
Faithful physicians have relieved much human suffering, but there are many
people in the world today who have never heard or learned of the healing power of
God, who can keep all the physicians busy, fully justifying the existence of physicians
in the world. As Christians, we should know THE GREAT PHYSICIAN, wait at His
feet and find relief, FULL AND FREE, WITHOUT MONEY OR PRICE,
WITHOUT MEDICINE OR SURGERY, that our bodies may be well and strong forHis glory.
If your body needs healing wait upon God — heed His directions and carry out
His commands and you will be healed. If there is ANY need in your life, YOU CAN
HAVE FAITH TO BELIEVE GOD FOR THE ANSWER — WAIT UPON HIM
— WHEN HE SHOWS YOU THE PRICE YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY TO
HAVE THAT FAITH — PAY THE PRICE REQUIRED AND RECEIVE FROM
GOD THAT WHICH YOU NEED. Examine yourself according to the Word of
God. FIND WHAT HE SAYS TO DO AND DO IT. Believe the Word of God
— do not believe the traditions that have been built up around the Bible. As you pay
the price God asks you to pay, the flame of your faith will be made to burn brightly,
no longer wavering, and you may ask God WHATSOEVER HE HAS PROMISED
AND IT SHALL BE DONE UNTO YOU!
Jesus once said to a man whose faith was weak, “ . . . If thou canst believe, all
things are possible to him that believeth.” Mark 9:23.
The man replied, with tears, “ . . . Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.”
Mark 9:24.
Jesus immediately helped his unbelief. His faith sprang up. He received the
faith God gives, and the thing he desired became a reality. HIS SON WAS
DELIVERED FROM SATAN’S POWER.
REAL FAITH WORKS! “ . . .faith without works (faith that doesn’t work) is
dead.” James 2:20. REAL FAITH BRINGS RESULTS, FOR GOD IS FAITHFUL
AND HE HAS PROMISED THIS TO US. Real faith is NOT HOPE — IT IS
REALITY!
Student, if you measured up to all that God requires of you, and your faith is
still weak it is because you have not asked for it- “ . . . ye have not, because ye ask
not.” James 4:2.
Two blind men were sitting by the wayside, and hearing that Jesus was passing
by, began to cry out, saying, “ . . . Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.”
Matthew 20:30. They were speaking to the right person, but they had not really asked
Jesus for anything. Jesus asked them, “ . . . What will ye that I shall do unto you?”
Matthew 20:32. When they asked Him to open their eyes that they might see, He
immediately opened their eyes –
“So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediatelytheir eyes received sight, and they followed him.” Matthew 20:34.
When you come to God, state your need definitely, God’s promise is, “ . . .
whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in
the Son.” John 14:13.
A man came in the healing line in one of my services who was deaf in one ear,
blind in one eye, and had rheumatism in his knees. As he came, he asked for
deliverance for his ear, which had been totally deaf for a number of years. As prayer
was offered and Satan’s power was broken, he received his hearing. This so inspired
his faith that he had courage to ask for healing for his eye. When this prayer was
answered, his faith was strengthened yet further, so that he asked for deliverance for
his crippled knees and received it. There was no real new need in the man, nor any
new willingness on God’s part to heal Him, but as each need was presented definitely,
God was true to His word, and DID EXACTLY WHAT WAS ASKED IN JESUS’
NAME.
The failure to make a definite request is often due to a lack of faith. When a
person comes to God believing that whatsoever he asks he shall receive, will naturally
ask for the things he desires.
The central secret of answered prayer is PRAYING IN GOD’S WILL. If you
are not sure it is God’s will for you to have what you’re asking, YOU CANNOT ASK
IN FAITH. No one can persuade God to do anything contrary to His will.
People who feel that they should add, “If it be thy will,” while asking God for
something, quote as an example the prayer of Jesus in Gethsemane, When He cried
out in agony of soul,
“ . . . Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my
will, but thine, be done.” Luke 22:42.
Jesus was not praying for something God had promised. He was not praying
with a desire to change the circumstances. Although this prayer was prayed by the Son
of God Himself, IT DID NOT BRING ABOUT THE CHANGE SUGGESTED
IN THE PRAYER. This was never intended to be a prayer to change things. It was
simply the agonizing cry of a struggling soul.
How different was the triumphant prayer at the tomb of Lazarus.
“ . . . Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thouhearest me always: . . . Lazarus, come forth.” John 11:41-43.
It is right that we should be concerned to know the will of God. When we
pray, we should pray in accordance with His will. When we pray, for instance, for
healing, we are praying for that which God has already revealed to be His will. Why,
then, would we say, “If it be thy will?”
We read in James 4:13,15,
“Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and
continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: . . . For that ye ought to
say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.”
In this case, God has not promised, nor revealed His will in the matter, but
God has promised and revealed His will in regard to the healing of His people. WE
NEED NOT SAY, “If it be thy will.” Instead, we should say: “I thank you, Father,
that you have revealed your will concerning this matter in the Word, and I know that I
am asking in your will.”
The “if” in many prayers not only denotes doubt, but it is a loophole through
which many hope to escape any possible charge of unbelief or unconfessed sin. If
healing fails to come, the person who prays thus can always excuse himself by saying
it just wasn’t God’s will to heal him.
A person’s lack in understanding of how God deals in regard to healing is the
cause of many remaining sick. The person who has already set a pattern in his mind
that he feels is the only way God can or will work is in danger of losing confidence.
He may even get the feeling that his prayer has not been heard or will not be
answered when the answer doesn’t come according to his mental pattern. And since
healing can only come by faith, it is easy to see the importance of understanding
God’s methods of dealing, so that faith may not be shaken.
Many people have been heard to remark that if God does the healing, it will be
instantly complete. The fact that this is merely man’s theory, and not God’s constant
pattern, can be readily seen from the fact that Christ Himself did not always heal in
this way. Many times Christ did heal people instantly, and many healings are instant
and complete today, but other patterns apparent today were also apparent in the
ministry of Christ.
A certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum, met Jesus and
“ . . . besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at thepoint of death.” John 4:4 7. Jesus said unto him,”
“ . . . Go thy way; thy son liveth.” John 4:50a.
The nobleman believed Jesus and went his way. As he was going down, his
servants met him, and told him his son lived. He inquired of them the hour when he
began to amend. When they told him the hour the fever left the child, the father knew
this was the same hour Jesus had told him his son would live.
Although the boy was truly healed, it was not instantly done, but the fever left,
and he “began to amend”, and was on the road to recovery.
In many cases today, the cause of the disease is driven out, yet some time is
required before normal processes of growth bring about a state of full and normal
well being.
In dealing with people about their healing, we need to know there are two
dangers involved in failure to understand this truth about healing. First, the person
may lose confidence in the healing power of God, due to disappointment in failing to
be made perfectly whole as he had expected. The loss of confidence opens the door
for Satan to return and take possession again of that which had been taken from him.
“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places,
seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from
whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and
garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with him seven other spirits more wicked
than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is
worse than the first . . . .” Matthew 12:43,45.
This also accounts for many who testify at one time to having received a
“partial healing” and then in a little while are as bad, or worse than they were before.
There is the danger of accepting the partial deliverance as being all that God
can, or will do and failing to continue to stand against the devil by faith until the
healing is complete. If Satan cannot prevent a healing altogether, he will back up one
step, and try to hinder a person from receiving ALL that God intended for him to
have. God’s plan for healing is COMPLETE HEALING, whether it be instant or a
convalescent type of deliverance.
Student, in dealing with people for their healing, do not allow them to be
discouraged if they do not receive instant healing, but encourage them to keeppraising God by faith for that which has already been done in their behalf. Encourage
them to praise God, not only for the improvement they may feel, BUT ALSO FOR
THE STRIPES WHICH JESUS BORE AT THE WHIPPING POST IN
JERUSALEM TO PAY THE PRICE FOR THEIR DELWERANCE. Tell them to
keep right on looking to Jesus until the manifestation of their deliverance is complete.
As Jesus entered into a certain village, ten men who were lepers stood afar off
and “ . . . lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” Luke
17:13.
“And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the
priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.” Luke
17:14.
Jesus did not tell them they were healed right there on the spot, but He did tell
them to go shew themselves to the priest, which they had no right to do UNLESS
THEY WERE HEALED.
As they started to the priest in obedience by faith, doing the thing they could
not do unless they were healed (although as yet there was no outward manifestation
of their healing), THEY WERE HEALED.
The healing of the lepers were not instant healings, BUT THEY WERE
GENUINE HEALINGS BY THE POWER OF GOD. THESE MEN TOOK
JESUS AT HIS WORD, AND IT DID NOT FAIL THEM. They acted their faith,
while it was not yet seen. As a result, in a very short time they SAW WHAT THEY
HAD FAITH TO BELIEVE.
Faith in God is more than faith in His promises. It is also faith in His

Sickness IS NOT the will of God for His people. IT IS THE WORK OF THE
DEVIL. It is the will of God that His people prosper and be in health — ”Beloved, I
wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul
prospereth.” III John 2. So, God’s people should come to Him for healing, or for
any other need (if they have paid the price for God’s faith) WITHOUT
WAVERING—IN FULL ASSURANCE THAT OUR PRAYERS WILL BE
HEARD AND ANSWERED.
“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything
according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us,
whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of
him.” I John 5:14, 15.
According to the testimony of God Himself, Job was a perfect and upright
man, “ . . . one that feareth God, and escheweth evil.” Job 1:8. No divinity was
attributed to Job. No superhuman perfection was attributed to him. Any Christian
can and should be at least as perfect as Job was, for our opportunities, privileges, and
power are far ahead of his. Jesus left us this commandment to be “ . . . therefore
perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:48. The
Scriptures, which Job never had the privilege of reading, because he lived before they
were written, were given “That the man of God may be perfect, . . .” II Timothy
3:17.
We may need to say with Paul, “Not as though I had already attained, either
were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which I am
also apprehended of Christ Jesus . . . but this one thing I do, forgetting those things
which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press
toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God . . .” Philippians 3:12-14. Our
goal should be kept before us at all times. PERFECTION IS THE GOAL! NEVER
MAKE EXCUSES FOR IMPERFECTIONS.
God accounted Job as perfect, because he sincerely feared God, and eschewed
(shunned, found no pleasure in doing) evil. However, there were reasons enough in
Job himself for his trouble being allowed to come upon him. God does not submit
His faithful and beloved followers to the tortures of Satan for no better reason than
to merely prove a point to the devil. Job’s faithfulness WAS proved, and Satan’s
boast proved empty, but a far greater issue than that was involved in the trial of Job.
EVEN A PERFECT MAN CAN KEEP GROWING IN FAVOR WITH GOD.
While Job was commended for his fear of God, that was not Job’s ONLY fear.When he found that he was bereft of family and possessions, suffering in body,
scorned by his wife, misunderstood and accused by his friends, he cried out, “ . . . the
thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come
unto me.” Job 3:25.
Fear is not faith. Faith is our protection against sin and sickness. Faith is our
defense when these enemies lay hold upon us. Satan saw it as a hedge around Job,
through which he could not penetrate, but fear, being opposed to faith, makes an
opening in the hedge through which Satan may enter. Job is not to be condemned for
his attitude, for he had not the Scriptures we have today. His knowledge of God and
His dealings with Job came only from oral tradition, and an incomplete direct
personal revelation of God. (The book of Job is generally recognized as the first
written book of the Bible.) Since “ . . .faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the
Word of God,” it is little wonder that Job should have failed to have faith sufficient to
protect him from Satan’s attack.
Having God’s wonderful promises so easily accessible, WE SHOULD GRASP
THEM BY FAITH AND STEP FORTH INTO THE GLORIOUS LIBERTY OF
THE SONS OF GOD.
God did not afflict Job — Satan did, but with God’s permission.
“So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with boils
from the sole of his foot unto his crown.” Job 2:7.
In his desperation, Job examined his attitude toward God, and through the
struggles of his soul, he found a new relationship with God. He had feared God; he
had striven to do right; and he had avoided evil. But now, when his wife urged him to
curse God and die (“ . . . Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.”
Job 2:9), and his friends accused him of every kind of sin (calling them by name), Job
discovered that only one thing remained a firm anchor in his fast changing world. In
his anguish he cried, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him . . .” Job 13:15. GOD
COULD NOT DISREGARD SUCH FAITH AS THAT. Immediately God began to
work toward Job’s deliverance. He revealed Himself to Job in such a splash of
splendor as has seldom been equaled in His dealings with any one man. In the light of
this revelation, Job had an opportunity to compare his own righteousness with that of
his Maker, and found himself sadly lacking. He then approached God in a spirit of
true humility and repentance mixed with faith, “Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent
in dust and ashes.” Job 42:6.
Job was even willing to pray for his accusers, and “ . . .the Lord turned thecaptivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: . . .” Job 42:10.
After Job had repented of his self-righteousness and lack of trust, proven his
humility and forgiveness by praying for his friends, and God sets him free from the
CAPTIVITY OF SATAN, we see Job restored to all his former status, plus even
more than he had at the beginning. He lived another one hundred and forty years, and
there is no record that he ever had another boil to annoy him in all those years.
Student, if you have been down in an ash heap moaning over your fate, and
blaming it on God, or some one else, TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT JOB —
PLACE YOUR TRUST IN GOD, as Job did, THOUGH IT MAY SEEM TO
LEAD ONLY TO DEATH. Start searching the Scriptures, reading them prayerfully,
and as though you had never heard those explanations men have added by their
traditions. Look to God HIMSELF to find the cause of your sickness, other
bondages, or lack of faith, AND WHEN YOU HAVE FOUND THE CAUSE, GET
RID OF IT. Like Job, you will be set free, for GOD IS THE SAME TODAY AS HE
WAS IN JOB’S DAY.
Some people even say Paul had his own private physician, Luke, who traveled
with him to watch after his health. Luke HAD been trained as a physician, “Luke, the
beloved physician, . . .” Colossians 4:14, but there is as much reason to declare that
Jesus took Matthew with Him as His private tax collector, as to say that Luke was
chosen to go with Paul because of his skill as a physician. There is no record in the
Scripture that Luke ever treated Paul or any sick person in any place that they visited,
in the capacity of a physician. As the author of his writings in the Bible he records
many miraculous healings. NEVER ONCE IS IT MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE
THAT LUKE OR ANY OTHER PHYSICIAN APPLIED ANY MEDICAL AID
AS SUPPLEMENTAL TO THE MIRACLE-WORKING POWER OF GOD. No
doubt, Luke, being a physician, was especially impressed with the ease with which
Christ and His Spirit-filled disciples relieved diseases that the physicians had spent
much time and effort trying in vain to heal. In fact, it is Luke who records that “ . . .a
woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon
physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border
of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.” Luke 8:43,44.
Faithful physicians have relieved much human suffering, but there are many
people in the world today who have never heard or learned of the healing power of
God, who can keep all the physicians busy, fully justifying the existence of physicians
in the world. As Christians, we should know THE GREAT PHYSICIAN, wait at His
feet and find relief, FULL AND FREE, WITHOUT MONEY OR PRICE,
WITHOUT MEDICINE OR SURGERY, that our bodies may be well and strong forHis glory.
If your body needs healing wait upon God — heed His directions and carry out
His commands and you will be healed. If there is ANY need in your life, YOU CAN
HAVE FAITH TO BELIEVE GOD FOR THE ANSWER — WAIT UPON HIM
— WHEN HE SHOWS YOU THE PRICE YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY TO
HAVE THAT FAITH — PAY THE PRICE REQUIRED AND RECEIVE FROM
GOD THAT WHICH YOU NEED. Examine yourself according to the Word of
God. FIND WHAT HE SAYS TO DO AND DO IT. Believe the Word of God
— do not believe the traditions that have been built up around the Bible. As you pay
the price God asks you to pay, the flame of your faith will be made to burn brightly,
no longer wavering, and you may ask God WHATSOEVER HE HAS PROMISED
AND IT SHALL BE DONE UNTO YOU!
Jesus once said to a man whose faith was weak, “ . . . If thou canst believe, all
things are possible to him that believeth.” Mark 9:23.
The man replied, with tears, “ . . . Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.”
Mark 9:24.
Jesus immediately helped his unbelief. His faith sprang up. He received the
faith God gives, and the thing he desired became a reality. HIS SON WAS
DELIVERED FROM SATAN’S POWER.
REAL FAITH WORKS! “ . . .faith without works (faith that doesn’t work) is
dead.” James 2:20. REAL FAITH BRINGS RESULTS, FOR GOD IS FAITHFUL
AND HE HAS PROMISED THIS TO US. Real faith is NOT HOPE — IT IS
REALITY!
Student, if you measured up to all that God requires of you, and your faith is
still weak it is because you have not asked for it- “ . . . ye have not, because ye ask
not.” James 4:2.
Two blind men were sitting by the wayside, and hearing that Jesus was passing
by, began to cry out, saying, “ . . . Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.”
Matthew 20:30. They were speaking to the right person, but they had not really asked
Jesus for anything. Jesus asked them, “ . . . What will ye that I shall do unto you?”
Matthew 20:32. When they asked Him to open their eyes that they might see, He
immediately opened their eyes –
“So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediatelytheir eyes received sight, and they followed him.” Matthew 20:34.
When you come to God, state your need definitely, God’s promise is, “ . . .
whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in
the Son.” John 14:13.
A man came in the healing line in one of my services who was deaf in one ear,
blind in one eye, and had rheumatism in his knees. As he came, he asked for
deliverance for his ear, which had been totally deaf for a number of years. As prayer
was offered and Satan’s power was broken, he received his hearing. This so inspired
his faith that he had courage to ask for healing for his eye. When this prayer was
answered, his faith was strengthened yet further, so that he asked for deliverance for
his crippled knees and received it. There was no real new need in the man, nor any
new willingness on God’s part to heal Him, but as each need was presented definitely,
God was true to His word, and DID EXACTLY WHAT WAS ASKED IN JESUS’
NAME.
The failure to make a definite request is often due to a lack of faith. When a
person comes to God believing that whatsoever he asks he shall receive, will naturally
ask for the things he desires.
The central secret of answered prayer is PRAYING IN GOD’S WILL. If you
are not sure it is God’s will for you to have what you’re asking, YOU CANNOT ASK
IN FAITH. No one can persuade God to do anything contrary to His will.
People who feel that they should add, “If it be thy will,” while asking God for
something, quote as an example the prayer of Jesus in Gethsemane, When He cried
out in agony of soul,
“ . . . Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my
will, but thine, be done.” Luke 22:42.
Jesus was not praying for something God had promised. He was not praying
with a desire to change the circumstances. Although this prayer was prayed by the Son
of God Himself, IT DID NOT BRING ABOUT THE CHANGE SUGGESTED
IN THE PRAYER. This was never intended to be a prayer to change things. It was
simply the agonizing cry of a struggling soul.
How different was the triumphant prayer at the tomb of Lazarus.
“ . . . Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thouhearest me always: . . . Lazarus, come forth.” John 11:41-43.
It is right that we should be concerned to know the will of God. When we
pray, we should pray in accordance with His will. When we pray, for instance, for
healing, we are praying for that which God has already revealed to be His will. Why,
then, would we say, “If it be thy will?”
We read in James 4:13,15,
“Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and
continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: . . . For that ye ought to
say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.”
In this case, God has not promised, nor revealed His will in the matter, but
God has promised and revealed His will in regard to the healing of His people. WE
NEED NOT SAY, “If it be thy will.” Instead, we should say: “I thank you, Father,
that you have revealed your will concerning this matter in the Word, and I know that I
am asking in your will.”
The “if” in many prayers not only denotes doubt, but it is a loophole through
which many hope to escape any possible charge of unbelief or unconfessed sin. If
healing fails to come, the person who prays thus can always excuse himself by saying
it just wasn’t God’s will to heal him.
A person’s lack in understanding of how God deals in regard to healing is the
cause of many remaining sick. The person who has already set a pattern in his mind
that he feels is the only way God can or will work is in danger of losing confidence.
He may even get the feeling that his prayer has not been heard or will not be
answered when the answer doesn’t come according to his mental pattern. And since
healing can only come by faith, it is easy to see the importance of understanding
God’s methods of dealing, so that faith may not be shaken.
Many people have been heard to remark that if God does the healing, it will be
instantly complete. The fact that this is merely man’s theory, and not God’s constant
pattern, can be readily seen from the fact that Christ Himself did not always heal in
this way. Many times Christ did heal people instantly, and many healings are instant
and complete today, but other patterns apparent today were also apparent in the
ministry of Christ.
A certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum, met Jesus and
“ . . . besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at thepoint of death.” John 4:4 7. Jesus said unto him,”
“ . . . Go thy way; thy son liveth.” John 4:50a.
The nobleman believed Jesus and went his way. As he was going down, his
servants met him, and told him his son lived. He inquired of them the hour when he
began to amend. When they told him the hour the fever left the child, the father knew
this was the same hour Jesus had told him his son would live.
Although the boy was truly healed, it was not instantly done, but the fever left,
and he “began to amend”, and was on the road to recovery.
In many cases today, the cause of the disease is driven out, yet some time is
required before normal processes of growth bring about a state of full and normal
well being.
In dealing with people about their healing, we need to know there are two
dangers involved in failure to understand this truth about healing. First, the person
may lose confidence in the healing power of God, due to disappointment in failing to
be made perfectly whole as he had expected. The loss of confidence opens the door
for Satan to return and take possession again of that which had been taken from him.
“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places,
seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from
whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and
garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with him seven other spirits more wicked
than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is
worse than the first . . . .” Matthew 12:43,45.
This also accounts for many who testify at one time to having received a
“partial healing” and then in a little while are as bad, or worse than they were before.
There is the danger of accepting the partial deliverance as being all that God
can, or will do and failing to continue to stand against the devil by faith until the
healing is complete. If Satan cannot prevent a healing altogether, he will back up one
step, and try to hinder a person from receiving ALL that God intended for him to
have. God’s plan for healing is COMPLETE HEALING, whether it be instant or a
convalescent type of deliverance.
Student, in dealing with people for their healing, do not allow them to be
discouraged if they do not receive instant healing, but encourage them to keeppraising God by faith for that which has already been done in their behalf. Encourage
them to praise God, not only for the improvement they may feel, BUT ALSO FOR
THE STRIPES WHICH JESUS BORE AT THE WHIPPING POST IN
JERUSALEM TO PAY THE PRICE FOR THEIR DELWERANCE. Tell them to
keep right on looking to Jesus until the manifestation of their deliverance is complete.
As Jesus entered into a certain village, ten men who were lepers stood afar off
and “ . . . lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” Luke
17:13.
“And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the
priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.” Luke
17:14.
Jesus did not tell them they were healed right there on the spot, but He did tell
them to go shew themselves to the priest, which they had no right to do UNLESS
THEY WERE HEALED.
As they started to the priest in obedience by faith, doing the thing they could
not do unless they were healed (although as yet there was no outward manifestation
of their healing), THEY WERE HEALED.
The healing of the lepers were not instant healings, BUT THEY WERE
GENUINE HEALINGS BY THE POWER OF GOD. THESE MEN TOOK
JESUS AT HIS WORD, AND IT DID NOT FAIL THEM. They acted their faith,
while it was not yet seen. As a result, in a very short time they SAW WHAT THEY
HAD FAITH TO BELIEVE.
Faith in God is more than faith in His promises. It is also faith in His

Sickness IS NOT the will of God for His people. IT IS THE WORK OF THE
DEVIL. It is the will of God that His people prosper and be in health — ”Beloved, I
wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul
prospereth.” III John 2. So, God’s people should come to Him for healing, or for
any other need (if they have paid the price for God’s faith) WITHOUT
WAVERING—IN FULL ASSURANCE THAT OUR PRAYERS WILL BE
HEARD AND ANSWERED.
“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything
according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us,
whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of
him.” I John 5:14, 15.
According to the testimony of God Himself, Job was a perfect and upright
man, “ . . . one that feareth God, and escheweth evil.” Job 1:8. No divinity was
attributed to Job. No superhuman perfection was attributed to him. Any Christian
can and should be at least as perfect as Job was, for our opportunities, privileges, and
power are far ahead of his. Jesus left us this commandment to be “ . . . therefore
perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:48. The
Scriptures, which Job never had the privilege of reading, because he lived before they
were written, were given “That the man of God may be perfect, . . .” II Timothy
3:17.
We may need to say with Paul, “Not as though I had already attained, either
were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which I am
also apprehended of Christ Jesus . . . but this one thing I do, forgetting those things
which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press
toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God . . .” Philippians 3:12-14. Our
goal should be kept before us at all times. PERFECTION IS THE GOAL! NEVER
MAKE EXCUSES FOR IMPERFECTIONS.
God accounted Job as perfect, because he sincerely feared God, and eschewed
(shunned, found no pleasure in doing) evil. However, there were reasons enough in
Job himself for his trouble being allowed to come upon him. God does not submit
His faithful and beloved followers to the tortures of Satan for no better reason than
to merely prove a point to the devil. Job’s faithfulness WAS proved, and Satan’s
boast proved empty, but a far greater issue than that was involved in the trial of Job.
EVEN A PERFECT MAN CAN KEEP GROWING IN FAVOR WITH GOD.
While Job was commended for his fear of God, that was not Job’s ONLY fear.When he found that he was bereft of family and possessions, suffering in body,
scorned by his wife, misunderstood and accused by his friends, he cried out, “ . . . the
thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come
unto me.” Job 3:25.
Fear is not faith. Faith is our protection against sin and sickness. Faith is our
defense when these enemies lay hold upon us. Satan saw it as a hedge around Job,
through which he could not penetrate, but fear, being opposed to faith, makes an
opening in the hedge through which Satan may enter. Job is not to be condemned for
his attitude, for he had not the Scriptures we have today. His knowledge of God and
His dealings with Job came only from oral tradition, and an incomplete direct
personal revelation of God. (The book of Job is generally recognized as the first
written book of the Bible.) Since “ . . .faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the
Word of God,” it is little wonder that Job should have failed to have faith sufficient to
protect him from Satan’s attack.
Having God’s wonderful promises so easily accessible, WE SHOULD GRASP
THEM BY FAITH AND STEP FORTH INTO THE GLORIOUS LIBERTY OF
THE SONS OF GOD.
God did not afflict Job — Satan did, but with God’s permission.
“So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with boils
from the sole of his foot unto his crown.” Job 2:7.
In his desperation, Job examined his attitude toward God, and through the
struggles of his soul, he found a new relationship with God. He had feared God; he
had striven to do right; and he had avoided evil. But now, when his wife urged him to
curse God and die (“ . . . Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.”
Job 2:9), and his friends accused him of every kind of sin (calling them by name), Job
discovered that only one thing remained a firm anchor in his fast changing world. In
his anguish he cried, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him . . .” Job 13:15. GOD
COULD NOT DISREGARD SUCH FAITH AS THAT. Immediately God began to
work toward Job’s deliverance. He revealed Himself to Job in such a splash of
splendor as has seldom been equaled in His dealings with any one man. In the light of
this revelation, Job had an opportunity to compare his own righteousness with that of
his Maker, and found himself sadly lacking. He then approached God in a spirit of
true humility and repentance mixed with faith, “Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent
in dust and ashes.” Job 42:6.
Job was even willing to pray for his accusers, and “ . . .the Lord turned thecaptivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: . . .” Job 42:10.
After Job had repented of his self-righteousness and lack of trust, proven his
humility and forgiveness by praying for his friends, and God sets him free from the
CAPTIVITY OF SATAN, we see Job restored to all his former status, plus even
more than he had at the beginning. He lived another one hundred and forty years, and
there is no record that he ever had another boil to annoy him in all those years.
Student, if you have been down in an ash heap moaning over your fate, and
blaming it on God, or some one else, TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT JOB —
PLACE YOUR TRUST IN GOD, as Job did, THOUGH IT MAY SEEM TO
LEAD ONLY TO DEATH. Start searching the Scriptures, reading them prayerfully,
and as though you had never heard those explanations men have added by their
traditions. Look to God HIMSELF to find the cause of your sickness, other
bondages, or lack of faith, AND WHEN YOU HAVE FOUND THE CAUSE, GET
RID OF IT. Like Job, you will be set free, for GOD IS THE SAME TODAY AS HE
WAS IN JOB’S DAY.
Some people even say Paul had his own private physician, Luke, who traveled
with him to watch after his health. Luke HAD been trained as a physician, “Luke, the
beloved physician, . . .” Colossians 4:14, but there is as much reason to declare that
Jesus took Matthew with Him as His private tax collector, as to say that Luke was
chosen to go with Paul because of his skill as a physician. There is no record in the
Scripture that Luke ever treated Paul or any sick person in any place that they visited,

THAT LUKE OR ANY OTHER PHYSICIAN APPLIED ANY MEDICAL AID
AS SUPPLEMENTAL TO THE MIRACLE-WORKING POWER OF GOD. No
doubt, Luke, being a physician, was especially impressed with the ease with which
Christ and His Spirit-filled disciples relieved diseases that the physicians had spent
much time and effort trying in vain to heal. In fact, it is Luke who records that “ . . .a
woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon
physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border
of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.” Luke 8:43,44.
Faithful physicians have relieved much human suffering, but there are many
people in the world today who have never heard or learned of the healing power of
God, who can keep all the physicians busy, fully justifying the existence of physicians
in the world. As Christians, we should know THE GREAT PHYSICIAN, wait at His
feet and find relief, FULL AND FREE, WITHOUT MONEY OR PRICE,
WITHOUT MEDICINE OR SURGERY, that our bodies may be well and strong forHis glory.
If your body needs healing wait upon God — heed His directions and carry out
His commands and you will be healed. If there is ANY need in your life, YOU CAN
HAVE FAITH TO BELIEVE GOD FOR THE ANSWER — WAIT UPON HIM
— WHEN HE SHOWS YOU THE PRICE YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY TO
HAVE THAT FAITH — PAY THE PRICE REQUIRED AND RECEIVE FROM
GOD THAT WHICH YOU NEED. Examine yourself according to the Word of
God. FIND WHAT HE SAYS TO DO AND DO IT. Believe the Word of God
— do not believe the traditions that have been built up around the Bible. As you pay
the price God asks you to pay, the flame of your faith will be made to burn brightly,
no longer wavering, and you may ask God WHATSOEVER HE HAS PROMISED
AND IT SHALL BE DONE UNTO YOU!
Jesus once said to a man whose faith was weak, “ . . . If thou canst believe, all
things are possible to him that believeth.” Mark 9:23.
The man replied, with tears, “ . . . Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.”
Mark 9:24.
Jesus immediately helped his unbelief. His faith sprang up. He received the
faith God gives, and the thing he desired became a reality. HIS SON WAS
DELIVERED FROM SATAN’S POWER.
REAL FAITH WORKS! “ . . .faith without works (faith that doesn’t work) is
dead.” James 2:20. REAL FAITH BRINGS RESULTS, FOR GOD IS FAITHFUL
AND HE HAS PROMISED THIS TO US. Real faith is NOT HOPE — IT IS
REALITY!
Student, if you measured up to all that God requires of you, and your faith is
still weak it is because you have not asked for it- “ . . . ye have not, because ye ask
not.” James 4:2.
Two blind men were sitting by the wayside, and hearing that Jesus was passing
by, began to cry out, saying, “ . . . Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.”
Matthew 20:30. They were speaking to the right person, but they had not really asked
Jesus for anything. Jesus asked them, “ . . . What will ye that I shall do unto you?”
Matthew 20:32. When they asked Him to open their eyes that they might see, He
immediately opened their eyes –
“So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediatelytheir eyes received sight, and they followed him.” Matthew 20:34.
When you come to God, state your need definitely, God’s promise is, “ . . .
whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in
the Son.” John 14:13.
A man came in the healing line in one of my services who was deaf in one ear,
blind in one eye, and had rheumatism in his knees. As he came, he asked for
deliverance for his ear, which had been totally deaf for a number of years. As prayer
was offered and Satan’s power was broken, he received his hearing. This so inspired
his faith that he had courage to ask for healing for his eye. When this prayer was
answered, his faith was strengthened yet further, so that he asked for deliverance for
his crippled knees and received it. There was no real new need in the man, nor any
new willingness on God’s part to heal Him, but as each need was presented definitely,
God was true to His word, and DID EXACTLY WHAT WAS ASKED IN JESUS’
NAME.
The failure to make a definite request is often due to a lack of faith. When a
person comes to God believing that whatsoever he asks he shall receive, will naturally
ask for the things he desires.
The central secret of answered prayer is PRAYING IN GOD’S WILL. If you
are not sure it is God’s will for you to have what you’re asking, YOU CANNOT ASK
IN FAITH. No one can persuade God to do anything contrary to His will.
People who feel that they should add, “If it be thy will,” while asking God for
something, quote as an example the prayer of Jesus in Gethsemane, When He cried
out in agony of soul,
“ . . . Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my
will, but thine, be done.” Luke 22:42.
Jesus was not praying for something God had promised. He was not praying
with a desire to change the circumstances. Although this prayer was prayed by the Son
of God Himself, IT DID NOT BRING ABOUT THE CHANGE SUGGESTED
IN THE PRAYER. This was never intended to be a prayer to change things. It was
simply the agonizing cry of a struggling soul.
How different was the triumphant prayer at the tomb of Lazarus.
“ . . . Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thouhearest me always: . . . Lazarus, come forth.” John 11:41-43.
It is right that we should be concerned to know the will of God. When we
pray, we should pray in accordance with His will. When we pray, for instance, for
healing, we are praying for that which God has already revealed to be His will. Why,
then, would we say, “If it be thy will?”
We read in James 4:13,15,
“Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and
continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: . . . For that ye ought to
say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.”
In this case, God has not promised, nor revealed His will in the matter, but
God has promised and revealed His will in regard to the healing of His people. WE
NEED NOT SAY, “If it be thy will.” Instead, we should say: “I thank you, Father,
that you have revealed your will concerning this matter in the Word, and I know that I
am asking in your will.”
The “if” in many prayers not only denotes doubt, but it is a loophole through
which many hope to escape any possible charge of unbelief or unconfessed sin. If
healing fails to come, the person who prays thus can always excuse himself by saying
it just wasn’t God’s will to heal him.
A person’s lack in understanding of how God deals in regard to healing is the
cause of many remaining sick. The person who has already set a pattern in his mind
that he feels is the only way God can or will work is in danger of losing confidence.
He may even get the feeling that his prayer has not been heard or will not be
answered when the answer doesn’t come according to his mental pattern. And since
healing can only come by faith, it is easy to see the importance of understanding
God’s methods of dealing, so that faith may not be shaken.
Many people have been heard to remark that if God does the healing, it will be
instantly complete. The fact that this is merely man’s theory, and not God’s constant
pattern, can be readily seen from the fact that Christ Himself did not always heal in
this way. Many times Christ did heal people instantly, and many healings are instant
and complete today, but other patterns apparent today were also apparent in the
ministry of Christ.
A certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum, met Jesus and
“ . . . besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at thepoint of death.” John 4:4 7. Jesus said unto him,”
“ . . . Go thy way; thy son liveth.” John 4:50a.
The nobleman believed Jesus and went his way. As he was going down, his
servants met him, and told him his son lived. He inquired of them the hour when he
began to amend. When they told him the hour the fever left the child, the father knew
this was the same hour Jesus had told him his son would live.
Although the boy was truly healed, it was not instantly done, but the fever left,
and he “began to amend”, and was on the road to recovery.
In many cases today, the cause of the disease is driven out, yet some time is
required before normal processes of growth bring about a state of full and normal
well being.
In dealing with people about their healing, we need to know there are two
dangers involved in failure to understand this truth about healing. First, the person
may lose confidence in the healing power of God, due to disappointment in failing to
be made perfectly whole as he had expected. The loss of confidence opens the door
for Satan to return and take possession again of that which had been taken from him.
“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places,
seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from
whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and
garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with him seven other spirits more wicked
than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is
worse than the first . . . .” Matthew 12:43,45.
This also accounts for many who testify at one time to having received a
“partial healing” and then in a little while are as bad, or worse than they were before.
There is the danger of accepting the partial deliverance as being all that God
can, or will do and failing to continue to stand against the devil by faith until the
healing is complete. If Satan cannot prevent a healing altogether, he will back up one
step, and try to hinder a person from receiving ALL that God intended for him to
have. God’s plan for healing is COMPLETE HEALING, whether it be instant or a
convalescent type of deliverance.
Student, in dealing with people for their healing, do not allow them to be
discouraged if they do not receive instant healing, but encourage them to keeppraising God by faith for that which has already been done in their behalf. Encourage
them to praise God, not only for the improvement they may feel, BUT ALSO FOR
THE STRIPES WHICH JESUS BORE AT THE WHIPPING POST IN
JERUSALEM TO PAY THE PRICE FOR THEIR DELWERANCE. Tell them to
keep right on looking to Jesus until the manifestation of their deliverance is complete.
As Jesus entered into a certain village, ten men who were lepers stood afar off
and “ . . . lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” Luke
17:13.
“And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the
priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.” Luke
17:14.
Jesus did not tell them they were healed right there on the spot, but He did tell
them to go shew themselves to the priest, which they had no right to do UNLESS
THEY WERE HEALED.
As they started to the priest in obedience by faith, doing the thing they could
not do unless they were healed (although as yet there was no outward manifestation
of their healing), THEY WERE HEALED.
The healing of the lepers were not instant healings, BUT THEY WERE
GENUINE HEALINGS BY THE POWER OF GOD. THESE MEN TOOK
JESUS AT HIS WORD, AND IT DID NOT FAIL THEM. They acted their faith,
while it was not yet seen. As a result, in a very short time they SAW WHAT THEY
HAD FAITH TO BELIEVE.

God’s formula for faith is:

God’s formula for faith is:
“Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.
And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments and
do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” I John 3:21, 22.
God’s power is sufficient for anything we need, but God’s faith for these needs
is given to those who keep His commandments, walk in His statutes, and believe that
ALL his words are true.
Condemnation is perhaps the greatest hindrance to faith, but anything that is of
disobedience, of ungodly or of unholy nature, is a hindrance to faith.
Unscriptural relationships in the home can be a hindrance to faith, In I Peter
3:1, 7, Peter exhorts husbands and wives in regard to their relationship:
“Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that if any obey
not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the
wives;”
“Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor
unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the
grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.” I Peter 3:1,7.
Unscriptural attitudes toward our fellow-men outside the home can also be
great hindrances to faith.
“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye
even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” Matthew 7:12.“ . . . Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,” Luke 6:27b.
“Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring
one another;” Romans 12:10.
“ . . . love as brethren, be pitiful (full of pity; tender; compassionate;) be
courteous: not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: . . . let him refrain
his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil,
and do good; let him seek peace and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over
the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord
is against them that do evil.” I Peter 3:8-12.
“The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also
himself.” Proverbs 11:25.
“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: . . .” Proverbs 18:24.
An unforgiving spirit hinders faith.
“For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive
you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive
your trespasses.” Matthew 6:14, 15.
“ . . . Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till
seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but,
Until seventy times seven.” Matthew 18:21, 22.
“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as
God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32.
Many professed Christians live under condemnation because they refuse to give
God the tithe that He declares to be His.
“ . . . all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of
the tree is the Lord’s: it is holy unto the Lord.” Leviticus 27:30.
People know that the Bible teaches tithing, that a tenth of their income belongs
to God, yet they refuse to walk in the light of God’s Word . THESE PEOPLE ARE
CALLED THIEVES.
“Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have werobbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have
robbed me, . . .” Malachi 3:8,9.
Do not expect God to give you His faith if you are robbing Him of His tithes
and offerings. ASK GOD’S PARDON FOR BEING A THIEF, AND BECOME A
CONSTANT TITHER, AND THEN GIVE HIM OFFERINGS ABOVE THE
TITHE.
“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine
house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open
you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be
room enough to receive it.” Malachi 3:10.
The law required tithing, but THE TITHE IS OLDER THAN THE LAW!
Another hindrance to faith is found in James 5:16:
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be
healed. . . .” James 5:16.
Many people are quick to see the faults of others, but are blind to any faults of
their own. With this spirit, one cannot have faith for healing, for deliverances of any
kind — God will not give faith to a self-righteous person.
Have you ever wondered why people pass through many healing lines and are
not healed? Few people claim to be perfect, yet when confronted with the idea that a
confession of their faults may be necessary before they can get their healing, there is
usually not one fault which they are willing to confess. These people need to call in
help — according to James 5:14, the elders of the church should be called in — and
with much heart-searching and prayer, they should trace out in their lives the reason
the healing has not taken place. Then, when God has revealed to their honest and
seeking hearts the cause of their failure to be healed, they should confess their faults
as they feel God would have them to do. (Whether it is to confess these faults to God
alone, or to the persons that have been wronged, or to confess them to the elders of
the church). Then they should ask for the prayers of those praying for them, that
these faults may be overcome. Then, in answer to the united prayers of the sick, and
the elders who are praying for them, SATAN CAN BE DRIVEN FROM THE
FIELD, AND A DOUBLE VICTORY WON. THE BONDAGE OF BOTH SIN
AND SICKNESS CAN BE BROKEN!
