He is in covert protocol if you will. Today is is interesting for me because as I was thinking about the subject matter. Today I was thinking about all of the pain and hurt that we are seeing that's happening around the world today, and particularly with this this covert, we see that you know India is been struck with the bombardment from this new strain and we've already seen places South Africa when we heard about Brazil in places like this and this is brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as the whole country that we stand with you and we are praying for you on today and as we let God bless us with the subject matter. We understand that people need healing and when we talk about healing.
There's different types of healing.
Obviously there is physical healing. There is psychological healing their sociological healing but I think we forget about financial healing because our pocketbook gets sick too and we need healing in our pocketbook. We also have theological healing because a lot of our theology that were getting from whatever source were getting it from an most of the time were reading it and if it sounds good were taking it into our spirit, not letting the word of God take us to that level to examine some of the things that we are taking in, but I'm reminded that when we when it comes to physical healing. What does the Bible have to say in so God blessed me to just duo the deep search on what the Bible has to say about healing because I think sometimes we have a notion that when we pray for healing that it's going to happen at the time when we pray, and I wonder how many of you out there that's listening today. How many of you have prayed for someone to be healed and the healing have not taken place and so we want to look at what the Bible has to say concerning that because healing God can do it you can do it in a miraculous way and I've been to countless healing services around the country and I've talked to missionaries who have been in healing services you know in in Africa and pop parts of in Canada and parts of Mexico and down in South America. They have talked I've talk to them about healing and what they come back and tell me is absolutely amazing and so I want to just have us examine that for a while. So what what kind of person are you today are you are a mean-spirited person or would you consider yourself a good-natured person or would you consider yourself just the person who can get along with anybody you know you have that type of personality where you could just walk up to someone to start talking to them.
But what if you had a life altering diagnosis on something, would you change the way you look at people who you use to address before you got the news of that life altering illness and most of us would we we would say you know if the doctor came back and say we only have you know, three months, six months, something like that left that we would want to get along with as many people as we want or can because we know that our days are limited but God has something to say about healing in his word.
They are people who I know who have contracted cancer and and live counsel people with various and sundry diseases and they tell me you know Pastor you know I am just feeling so much pain I'm in so much agony I don't know what to do and we we know of people who are well known who have had accidents or incidents in their life and they have written about in the course.
One of the ones when thinking about right now is Joni Erickson totter.
A wonderful, wonderful woman in the body of Christ and how God had blessed her to overcome adversity over adversity over adversity. Just time and time again, and God has made that place for her to where she has through her speaking engagements have brought hundreds of thousands of people around the world to Jesus Christ. Right from the place where God put her and that the wheelchair in which easy and because if you all know her situation. She had a diving accident at the age of 17 and she is been confined to the wheelchair but the wheelchair has become her pool.
And she has let the word of God flow through her in such a way that it has soften the heart of the hardest hearted person. So what is the word of God say about someone who may want to get up out of that wheelchair or get up out of their sickbed and all of a sudden they have a group of people praying for them and they don't get up. What is it that we do what is it that we say to that person. The first thing I think we say to that person is you know you don't have enough faith. That's why you're still here on your sickbed.
Is that really the case that a person does not have enough faith that do we believe it's God's will to heal everyone or heal all those who come to him by faith. Is it his will to do that and if that is his will, then why have people steal our steel in the wheelchair are still in the sickbed we can not answer that question, because we don't have the mind of God, but we believe and we continuously pray for these people who are bedbound, wheelchair-bound crutches or whatever the case may be, you know, needing assistance of any kind, we continuously pray for them because we don't know through our prayer what God is going to do in that person's life.
So I want you to listen for a bit to James chapter 5, beginning with verse 14 is there any sick among you, let him call for the elders of the church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord and the prayer of faith shall save the sick and the Lord shall raise him up, and if you have committed sin. They shall be forgiven him. Now we have a tendency to stop right there. But I will go on to the next verse, verse, number 16 that says, confess your faults one to another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed because the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. So we's have a tendency to stop where it says if he have committed sins, they will be forgiven him. But in order for that individual.
I believe to be healing God would not have put it in here if he didn't want us to confess our faults one to another.
If he did not want us to pray for one another, so he still wants us to pray, but he also wants the individual who is receiving prayer to also pray for others.
So prayer is a continuous thing prayer it. It deepens softens the heart of man and prayer. The words of prayer, go to where no man can go only God can go there and so when we listen to the prayer of faith we are the elders are the one who basically praying for the individual. So it is their prayers that they are praying for the individual who might have that sickness or who might have that disease.
But that doesn't mean that the individual who is being pray for should not pray so they should pray as well and so as we pray in as we give ourselves over to God, then we begin to see God working in our lives, because all of the time, you may not see God working through physical healing, but you might see him working through your psychological healing or your sociological healing or your theological healing or your financial healing. So God may be working in and through the prayer and an individual might be looking for physical prayer, but there's also other healings that this person may have to experience in order for them to get to the physical healing so we should not discount the fact that God, in his goodness in God in his mercy is able to do for us what we can't do for ourselves were coming up on the break and we come back with them to continue to talk about healing for the heartbroken and willing to continue this on next week as well so listen and let God bless you to understand what is being said from the word of God will be back right after this break your CMM would love to have you join their community of men for breakfast every first and third Friday of every month and Bible discussions and fellowship at the best breakfast in town meeting location is at their voracious poster First Christian Church in Connors 1130 N.

So many people out there is needing various types of healing. So when we went on the break we were talking about the various types of healing that we need to experience as men and women in Jesus Christ, and of course you know this is man talk, but when we speak in reference to issues like this. This is for all of our listening audience because both men and women need healing and so healing is a part of who we are in John St. John chapter 5, beginning with verses number two through five and there was a sick man and he was he was by the sheep gate and he had this disease and he had this disease for 38 years, and Jesus saw him he was lying there and he knew that he had been in this condition for very very long time and then he says, it says that he said to him do you want to be made well and then the man answered, Sir, I have no one to put me in the pool when the water is stirred up, but when I am coming, another steps down before me.
Jesus didn't even address that he simply told the man he said rise, take up your bed and walk and immediately the man was made well. She took up his bed and walked now, when we read this and I think this is again where we fall short in this day and time is that when we read this, we expect miracles and healings to happen at the time we pray, but when I asked you who are listening today.
How many times have you been in a prayer circle or have you been praying for someone who has a sickness or disease. Some type of infirmity and you prayed for him or her and then you went away and then you call back. Maybe a couple days later they say you I feel a little better but now when we hear that we have attempted to say was see a brother or sister you are not believing God for your complete healing and I want to challenge that because we don't know what where that person is spiritually.
We understand the they have a physical condition and they desire that we pray for them and so we pray for them but no one knows the outcome except God himself. We don't know the outcome and so when we asked ourselves the question because again we we we have so many questions and I think not enough answers for a lot of those questions, especially when it comes to subject matter like this. And so in John chapter 15 and verse seven.
Jesus says these words, if you abide in me and my words abide in you, you shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Now if we pray and we say God. We are praying to you for healing of a certain individual and it shall be done unto you.
Do we expect yes all of the time or should we also expect no and we can't understand the no because when we read this, we read it in the affirmative. So we're saying that Jesus said if I ask and I you know, do what you say, in reference to asking what I will I will and wish to be healed. It shall be done unto you.
But is that the very best option for you as an individual, specifically because we know that God can heal and we also know that God can heal today. God says in in Isaiah the arm of the Lord is not too short that he cannot say, neither his ear to Harry that he cannot hear and again you are listening you have experienced either yourself or you know someone who has experience for you. The miracle of healing.
So when if a person pray for you and you have some infirmity and you get heal from that I considered that a miracle God sickness doesn't come from God, but he allows things to come for reason and we don't understand why we don't understand I don't understand. I met him speak for you.
I start say we, but I will speak for myself. I don't understand why we have covert NY Cove. It has taken the lives of so many millions of people or hundreds of thousands of people around the world. I can understand that that rest in the mind of God. I'm not going to even attempt to answer it, but God said this in Matthew chapter 9 verses one through nine. Jesus got into a boat and he went over to the other side and some people brought to him man who was a paralytic and some of the scribes, so saw Jesus and Jesus said, take heart, my son, your sins are forgiven and the scribes will well wait a minute, wait a minute you can't not forgive sins. This man is blaspheming the see Jesus knew what they were thinking and he asked him he said why do you think evil in your heart, is it easier to say, your sins are forgiven, or to say rise up and walk, but that you may know that the son of man has authority on earth. There is the word so if the Son of Man has the authority on earth to deliver someone from a sickness or disease. Then, when we speak the word of God in faith. We also have that authority because again based on Romans eight based on revelations one and Revelation 6.
We have joint airship, heirs and joint heirs. And he also said were kings and priests. So if we are kings and priests was Jesus Christ as we are, then we have the authority to take authority over any sickness or any disease.
So Jesus said, take up your bed and go home and and the man went he went home and when the crowd saw it, they were afraid. Afraid of what afraid of what they saw afraid of who Jesus was and they glorified God, so did they have the fear of God in them.
When they saw this miraculous healing take place through this paralytic man, and in the says they asked the question who had given this authority to this man, who is it they didn't understand it was God but through the miraculous works in which Jesus was doing. He was confirming that he was indeed the son of God and that the father sent him to the earth. Now my question is what is the main reason for Jesus coming did Jesus come to heal and you see when when people get healed if you if you look back in the Scriptures is just like what he fee for the 5000. You know they were following him because they got free food. They don't have to do anything for it. They have to work for that they were oil. If we continue to follow this man he'll just continue to feed us and so they continued continuously ask for miracle Africa show us a miracle that we may believe. And when Jesus did one is still believe we was set so we had that we have this some other people in the congregation in which Jesus preached to some of them believe and then there was some who don't believe.
And that's going to happen wherever you go Saints. It doesn't matter where you go in the world.
There are going to be people who are going to believe the word of God because they have been born again. They have been exposed to the word they understand what Jesus Christ can do because he did it for them and they are in the body of Christ.
So when you start proclaiming the gospel and you have a bunch of people around there's going to be people who said, praise the Lord hallelujah brother I'm with you because I can identify with what you're saying why because I've been born again. On the other hand, you're going to have those people who listen to you and I gotta say you don't know what you're talking about sitdown man because you just don't fully understand this is getting so good.
Saints were going to continue this on next week talking about healing for the heartbroken and we haven't even the surface of this thing, but when we start getting deep into this thing you're going to see and take a different view on ceiling and this is what we want you to do. Look at healing from a different perspective, but don't stop praying for someone when they asked for prayer because we don't know the mind of God and we don't know the outcome.
There's so much that God expects of us as children of God. God bless you and we love as we wrap up today show is sure that TA W CMM talking and walking Christian men's ministry is building a community of men Christ followers with a desire to be servant leaders in their homes, communities, churches and work environments.
