WAITING FOR HEALING
From Ferd Sebastian
A big problem is that healing does not come on our time schedule. Why are we waiting? A man named Paul came to 2jesus for healing and it was not coming. Here is our correspondence. Hopefully there is a message here that might help others.
I've read many of your encouraging testimonies of miracle healing and your articles on healing. I've followed your encouragement and apply verses of scripture and believed. Yet still nothing happens to my physical that is really in need of a miraculous healing from polio.
Please pray that I'll receive the complete restoration of my limb to perfect health.
I wish that I knew all the answers. Why do some people wait so long and to others healing comes so fast. I will give you a couple of thoughts to mull over. They may fit or they may be wrong, but they are food for thought.
You are trying with all your might to be healed. You are studying the word and praying fervently. You are just being consumed with it ... Could you be trying too hard? You really do only two things to get your healing. Have faith and receive. Jesus does the rest. We humans want to do everything we can to get by in this world. We get more when we completely surrender and say God. I can't do this ... Help me ... I am trusting in you for as it is written, 1 Peter 2:24 by His strips I am healed. Jesus did that for me and I believe it and I have the faith that it will be done because it is impossible for you to lie. So I put my life in your hands and I am ready to receive. You might have been saying that you believed but in your heart you might have been holding out a little.
Now when you receive say thank you for healing me. (Yes I know in the natural you still look sick) But if you claimed it and received it ... in your spirit you well be healed. Now it just has to move from there to your body. That could be instant. It could be a year. But every day you should be acting like you have received and thanking God for it.
The Devil does not want you to have this ... He wants you to fall away from God then he can handle you the way that he likes. So it is a spiritual fight even more than physical.
Paul in Eph 6:12-18
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Paul, above is one thing that might have been happening. Another is that your sickness may be more important than God. To be healed may be the number one thing in your life. Number one has to be God.
Psalms 37:4 Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Now let us pray together ... Paul in my spirit I will be with you and so will Jesus. We will touch you and transfer the power of the Holy Spirit to you. So accept it.
Dear Father, Paul and I join together in prayer in Matt. 18:19 Jesus said, "Again I tell you that if two of you on earth agree on anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in Heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them." Father we know that Jesus is with us and we are using His power and His name to rid Paul of this polio. Father, we curse this polio, we loose it from Paul's body. We command it in Jesus name to shrivel up, die, and be cast out. Father We pray that Paul's body will be filled with your love and power. Let the Holy Spirit burn brightly in Paul so that the world will not just see him anymore but will see your love shining out of him. Father, we want Paul to be a walking testimony to the love and power of Jesus. Give Paul the ability to be a true warrior for Christ. We know that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and He also took our diseases to the cross. (Matt. 8:17) He took our infirmities and carried our diseases! Jesus said, (Mark 11:22-24) that if we have faith and do not doubt, that it will be done. Therefore when we ask, believe that we have received it. Father we know that you heard us and we know that Paul is now healed. So Father we thank you for healing Paul and forever praise your holy name. We pray this prayer in Jesus name to the Father so that His Son Jesus will be glorified and bring glory to the Father. Your children, Paul and Ferd. Amen!
Do not forget to thank Jesus everyday. Also try to do something that you have not been able to do before. Jesus is going to be taking you by the hand. So hold on tight and do not let go.
Your brother in Christ, Ferd
It is really with much heartfelt gratitude that I'm expressing my most sincere thanks to you. I believe you've prayed hard in your Spirit directed reply to me and your prayers is such a boost to my faith and your teaching is so appropriate to my situation that right now I believe the Lord has heard our prayers. The Holy Spirit is definitely present in this instance. I believe I've already been healed, only the physical manifestation needs to be revealed.
Let me be a walking testimony of the Power of the Lord and His mercy.
Thank you and keep praying for me.
To Him be the Glory, now and forever!
I believe that Paul is now on the right track. When the healing has manifested itself I will add it on this letter. In Christ, Ferd
Praise God for Jesus healing power ... 2jesus
