And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” (Mark 16:15-18.)
Do you believe that, as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we have been given the authority to heal, to restore, and to bring heaven’s power and presence to the Earth? Are you willing to step out in faith, to exercise the divine commission Jesus gave to all of us, even if you don’t understand how it will work? Then it is time to prayerfully act on that commission, please?
Our Children’s Pastor, Jon Coad, has been diagnosed with a form of follicular lymphoma that is particularly challenging, and needs your healing help. He is an awesome man and pastor; loving, wise, kind, and seriously effective and appealing with our kids!
Will you join us in proclaiming, using the miracle-working authority Jesus has imparted to all of us, that Jon will be cured of this ‘incurable’ disease, and that his miraculous healing will work miracles of healing and restoration in the families and communities he pastors?
Healing is our confirming sign of the all-encompassing power and providence of our God. I believe that the God who created us is supremely capable of delivering all of us from disease, darkness, and sin! So let’s join together to call heaven’s healing power and presence into Jon’s body, and into our world. Let healing be done on earth as it is in heaven!
As believers and present-day disciples, we have all been called to exercise the spiritual gifts God has given us for the restoring of His kingdom here and now, on the earth as it is in heaven! So awaken, my brothers and sisters! It is time to act in the fullness of His power and presence!
God’s various expressions of power are in action everywhere; but God himself is behind it all. Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits. All kinds of things are handed out by the Spirit, and to all kinds of people!
The variety is wonderful: wise counsel, clear understanding, simple trust, healing the sick, miraculous acts, proclamation, distinguishing between spirits, tongues, and interpretation of tongues. All these gifts have a common origin, but are handed out one by one by the one Spirit of God. He decides who gets what, and when. (1 Corinthians 12:6-11)
