A Message From The Pastor Do you Want Healing?

How many of you, reading this article, have some kind of sickness or disease that just will not leave your body?  Are you tired of walking around with pain asking yourself; “Will this ever end?”  If you are, I have some good news for you.  Jesus did something for every single one of us when He shed His Blood on the Cross of Calvary.  He took all of our sickness, disease, poverty, and sin and destroyed it.  You may ask;”Did He really do that for me?  Yes He did!

(Isaiah 53:5) says; “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed.”

Please understand that this is not a Baptist, Catholic, Methodist or Pentecostal thing.  This is a Jesus thing.  If you want your body to be healed all you have to do is step out and take it.  Let me ask a very important question.  From a Spiritual point of view;”What have you done to step out and take it?” 

Let me share a story with you about a woman who had a disease bothering her for twelve years and stepped out and took her healing.  (Matthew 9:20-22) “Behold there was a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind Him and touched the hem of His garment:  For she said within herself, if I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole.  But Jesus turned Him about and when He saw her He said, Daughter, be of good comfort, thy faith hath made thee whole.  And the woman was made whole from that hour.”

This lady was willing to take a step of “FAITH AND LOSE HER DISEASE.”  It wasn’t easy for her because there was such a large crowd that she had to fight through just to get to Him, but she was willing to do whatever it took to get to Him and when she did she got His attention.  Do you have God’s attention? 

Are you willing to take a step of Faith and lose your sickness and disease?  By her stepping out and fighting through that crowd to get to him, it proved to Him that she “Believed.”

Faith is the only thing that will move the hand of God.  If you will have faith in what He has already done, your healing will take place.

I personally have experienced the healing power of Jesus more than once, and so has member of my family.  Some people have said;”Yeah that’s because you are a minster and I say no it is because I believe that God’s Word is true and I act upon it just like the woman with the issue of blood.

There is not one thing that Jesus will not do for us if we will just believe His Word.  You can have what your heart desires because that’s the kind of God that I serve.
