HAVE FAITH by Pastor Paul Locke for loxland.com 4/12/2015 and YouTube
Mustard Seed sized faith refers to faith in God (Lk 17:6) that often is misplaced by negative thought. Nasser Siddiqui then a young Muslim was dying until God intervened to heal him and revealed Jesus. His Christian wife was then struck with life threatening paralysis and Nasser played Christian faith building tapes for her to hear all day until she was healed through her faith that grew by hearing the Word of God. (Rom 10:17)
Conflict within marriage is an open door for Satan to afflict people because marriage vows to God must not be broken. Women usually vow to ‘love, honour, and obey’ their husbands and feminist thought conflicts with this vow. Love overcomes evil (1Jhn 4:18) that enters into thought by the devil. Most Cancer is caused through unforgiveness a sin and requires repentance and forgiveness to prevent sickness. (Mtt 6:14-15)
Religion destroys faith for healing when they say the perfect healing is going to be with Jesus. The reason Jesus came and was anointed was to save and heal, so giving up on His healing is rejecting Jesus. (Lk 4:18) Jesus focussed on faith of the Apostles who asked for help with their faith. (Lk 17:5) Jesus’ taught that He could heal and not that He would, they needed to seek and ask.
Anointing to heal by Jesus is given from God who said, “I AM the Lord who heals you.” (Ex 15:26) Satan revealed that Jesus could command angels to lift him up lest he strike his foot against a stone. Jesus in ministry healed them all and gave authority to believers as his hands and feet by the Great Commission to heal. (Mtt 28:18-19) Church authority is unity in action to do great things in the name of Jesus.
Worldly People will not believe in the supernatural and do not access the healing and saving power of God. (2Thes 3:2) Christians have the responsibility to interfere with plans of the devil in the lives of these people. We are charged to preach the Gospel in season and out so that some might be saved. (2Tim 4:2) Our message and actions persuade them to come to saving faith in Jesus Christ.
