I am the lord God that heals you..

heals

(James 5:16 KJV) Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
.
Proverbs 28:13 He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.
.
The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much but seriously do note this not everything, prayer alone even for healing now will not help if you or the others  still if you do refuse to repent, to admit your  own sins, wrong doings. God is not to be mocked and will not be mocked here. Many people false believe that prayer is like a Santa Claus wish list.. it is not. Or they think that by getting hundreds, thousands of people praying for a prayer request it will cause God to change his mind.. It does not take thousands of people to pray to get a prayer answered, it merely as per God’s word takes 2 or 3 persons to agree in Jesus name, and only  if the prayer meets God’s will and conditions.. Jesus has also said that most personal  prayers should be prayed in secret in one’s personal closet and God will reward you openly

Psalms 94:17 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.

Psalms 127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

if you are Holy Spirit filled only then

Isaiah 65:23 They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.

Also if it was God’s will for us to stay sick then why would God allow the Hospitals to be built, or why would Jesus himself now cure the sick people..

(Heb 13:8 KJV) Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

(Heb 13:12 KJV) Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.14 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. 16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

(James 5:13 KJV) Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

(James 5:14 KJV) Is 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:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

(James 5:16 KJV) Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

(James 5:17 KJV) Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

(James 5:18 KJV) And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

(James 5:19 KJV) Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

What we all need to do is to obey, follow after the word of God and not rather try to explain it away…

(Acts 10:38 KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

(Isa 53:5 KJV) But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Some of the distorted preachers, even Pentecostals do too often do teach that any Christian should not be sick at all and that we can always immediately claim our sickness healing by faith and God will always heal us. They seem too easily to forget that a temporary human sickness can temporary serve God’s purposes. But also yet the Fundamentals Evangelicals too now also go overboard denying that any healing tend to exist today as well. Relatedly as Jesus himself had said this is not always the case.. sickness can exist for the glory of God too. But it is still always God will to deliver us from all evil, all sicknesses now too.. and how and when he God chooses to do so is his prerogative..

Relatedly a too common Pentecostal Word Faith teaching is that it is solely, always your own personal fault for being sick. This false teaching of sin being the cause of all sickness can also be found in Hinduism as well. They teach that it is because of your own lack of faith and/or knowledge, unconfessed sins if you are sick or poor. This unloving, cruel and unbiblical teaching does not come from God but from Satan who distorted God’s basic truths on healing. Can you imagine the gall of anyone, even a false elder, pastor, unlovingly trying to tell a person to their face that the reason their daughter sick is because of their lack of faith? or that God is punishing them of their own sin? Can you imagine the cruelty in telling a person bound to a wheelchair that if they had enough “faith” they would surely “Rise and be healed?” But what does the Bible say about it, teach.

Most of the problem with the clear Christian teaching discrepancies on Healing and Sickness is due firstly to the real personal ignorance of what the Bible teaches even about Healing. Most Christian people wrongfully rely mainly on some famous preacher who is pro or con to healing and Not on God and his Word firstly. Many people have their mind made up beforehand anyway and are not honestly open to the subjects and they thus tend use out of context bible verses, the preachers quotations to try to suit, substantiate their own pet views.. they need to read these verses..

(Mat 8:7 KJV) And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

(Mat 10:1 KJV) And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

(Mat 10:8 KJV) Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

(Mat 12:10 KJV) And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.

(Mat 13:15 KJV) For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

(Mark 3:15 KJV) And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

(Luke 4:18 KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

Many people want to know why the miracles of Christ are not abounding today.. the answer is quite simple..

(Mat 13:57 KJV) And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.

(Mat 13:58 KJV) And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

(Gal 3:5 KJV) He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

(Mat 15:28 KJV) Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

(Mat 21:21 KJV) Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

(Mark 2:5 KJV) When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

(Mark 10:52 KJV) And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

(Mark 11:22 KJV) And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

(Acts 20:21 KJV) Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

(Rom 10:17 KJV) So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

(James 1:6 KJV) But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

I HAVE ALSO LEARNED THE HARD WAY THAT EVEN IF MANY PERSONS DO SEE A MIRACLE THERE WILL BE NO SIGNIFICANT SPIRITUAL CHANGE IN THEIR LIFE.

(John 12:37 KJV) But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:

When praying for a believer’s healing, which is the children’s bread, as per the book of James the sick person has also to confess and also to repent of their sins, admit their own causes of the illness..

(John 5:13 KJV) And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

(1 Cor 10:21 KJV) Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

(John 8:11 KJV) And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

(1 Cor 11:27 KJV) Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Prayer and fasting for deliverance though is also needed.

(Mat 17:18 KJV) And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

(1 Cor 10:13 KJV) There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

(Phil 4:19 KJV) But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

GOD WILL SUPPLY IF YOU LET HIM ALL YOUR NEEDS, FORGIVENESS, SALVATION, REDEMPTION, SICKNESS, DELIVERANCE.

(Psa 34:18 KJV) The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

(Psa 51:16 KJV) For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

AND IF IT WAS GOD’S WILL FOR YOU TO BE SICK THERE WOULD ALSO BE SICKNESS IN HEAVEN.

(Rev 21:3 KJV) And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

(Heb 10:38 KJV) Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Only Christians can firstly by faith confess God’s healing promises….

(Isa 53:5 KJV) But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed

A person can confess this verse all they want and yet they will not be healed if they do not respect, follow the rest of God’s conditions.. what there are more conditions? yes read the verse afterwards also for a start..

(Isa 53:6 KJV) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

this following verses says we have to also humbly repent, confess our sins so do the next ones..

(James 5:14 KJV) Is 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:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

(James 5:16 KJV) Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

(Psa 51:17 KJV) The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. (1 Pet 3:4 KJV) But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

One cannot pray for personally healing and have unrepented sins still in one’s life. (James 5:12 KJV) But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

(James 5:13 KJV) Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. 14 Is 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:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. 19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

(1 Cor 11:26 KJV) For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord’s death till he come.27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Many times after even an in repentant pastor slanders me someone will phone me and say did you know the pastor is now seriously sick..

(Mat 5:22 KJV) But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

I REALLY DO also believe in PERSONALLY appropriating, claiming for ourselves God’s word by faith, the specific word that God has specifically given to us. For God to speak to us we do need to be in a valid relationship with Him, His Son Jesus, the Holy Spirt, his Word as well.. and we need to listen to what he personally is telling us what to do..(John 10:27 KJV) My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:(Jer 6:16 KJV) Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. (Isa 30:21 KJV) And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

(2 Cor 13:1 KJV) In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

I also still very tired of false preachers taking isolated words of the Bible and trying to build a major doctrine, lifestyle around it.. even those who say there is “power in our words”.

The power is not in our words, not at all, the power is always ONLY in God’s words and what God says will happen if we follow after God’s Word or what will happen to us by God’s power if we reject God’s word to us.

Man too often tries to make himself the center of attention, to exaggerate his self importance and his capabilities.. without God we are nothing and always will be nothing.

(2 Cor 4:7 KJV) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. 12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

Some they say there is power in our words, and they use vain repetition trying to make things happen, they have wrongfully turned their eyes of God and onto themselves..

(Mat 6:7 KJV) But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

(Mark 7:7 KJV) Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Valid Positive confession is confessing the word of God given PERSONALLY to us.. (Rom 10:17 KJV) So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

(Rom 14:23 KJV) And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

We also cannot perform a miracle any time we want, nor can we just claim any Bible verse, for God is always sovereign, in charge, not us..

Even Jesus could not do what he wanted to, he was always dependent on what the Father said he could do.. (John 5:19 KJV) Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

(Mat 8:16 KJV) When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

(James 5:14 KJV) Is 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: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

(Isa 53:5 KJV) But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

(Acts 4:10 KJV) Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

(1 Tim 5:23 KJV) Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities.

(Luke 8:2 KJV) And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,

note above here that evil spirits and infirmities are two separate items here..

(Luke 7:21 KJV) And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.

Note the above word many.. it is not the word all…

(Rom 15:1 KJV) We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

Some people still wrongfully do look for false reasons not to help any others, they falsely even do delegate wrong reasons for the others being poor or sick now as well and thus wrongfully excuse themselves from not personally helping them .. sadly some Christians, some, pastors included. I have met many professing Christian persons who wrongfully teach even that all sickness is caused by a personal mental problem, or they do wrongfully teach that one has power within oneself to heal oneself… or that all sickness is only demonic in cause, needing only a spiritual cure.. and none of this is in accordance to the Bible, or what God teaches us now as well.. (Rom 8:26 KJV) Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

God alone has power to heal us, we never do not have any of this power in us.. this power is in God to use as God wills and not in us still too….

(2 Cor 12:9 KJV) And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

(2 Cor 4:7 KJV) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

(2 Cor 4:8 KJV) We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

I have already made it personally clear that all sickness is not demonic in cause.. some sickness also does have real physical causes.. and it is for that reasons that God has not said that we should not go to any doctors.. rather what God has said was that we should not go to Doctors’ first for our healing.. we need to go to God first in prayer, and he God can next choose to heal us directly or tell us to go to a doctor next.

My own daughter was miraculously healed of a very serious sickness without any doctor then helping her.. at that time there was no available medical help for her sickness as well.. but next God told me to take my son for surgery to remove a cyst. I asked God why? if he could heal my daughter then why did my son have to go for surgery.. God clearly said to me I work through people as well, even through doctors and what they cannot do God will next do for me..

Note this historic fact most of the major hospitals, even major educational institutions were originally founded by Christians who cared about the good welfare of others.

(Luke 10:30 KJV) And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37 And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

(Mark 9:41 KJV) For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.

(John 17:1 KJV) These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

ALL OF OUR ACTS ARE TO EXALT THE FATHER AND NOT OURSELVES..

Some persons, preachers they do say there is power in our words, in our verbal positive confession, using only positive words, that is not really the truth, rather the power always is in God only.

For instance if we are always going around worrying, expressing about our fears so next these things they will likely next happen to us, not because we have confessed the words of fears, but because God will want to show to us how he can and we will through us overcome the things we feared..as believers.. we as committed believer sin God are not allowed the luxury of defeat.. we will be overcomers over our fears too.. and thus we will learn that (Phil 4:13 KJV) I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

(Rev 12:11 KJV) And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Take for example Job who said (Job 3:25 KJV) For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me. he learned that he could next be victorious over what he feared as well..

(Job 42:12 KJV) So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. 13 He had also seven sons and three daughters.14 And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch. 15 And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren. 16 After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations.17 So Job died, being old and full of days.

We all also do need to confess personally more what Jesus has already done for us, such as by his stripes we were healed too, and not what we think bad can or will happen to us.. The only valid Positive confession is what Jesus has done for us and those words that God has personally told us we can claim by faith.. THERE IS ONLY ONE FAITH FOR PERSONAL SALVATION, FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST ALONE, AND ONE BODY OF CHRIST, AND ONE TEMPLE, IT IS THE CHURCH OF CHRIST.

A house divided against itself cannot stand (Mark 3:25) applies to Churches, and our homes, and our marriages too. IF YOU BEGIN TO PRAY FOR THE SICK AS OUTLINED BELOW, YOU TOO WILL BEGIN TO SEE JESUS HEAL THE SICK THROUGH YOUR PRAYERS..

(1 Ki 8:28 KJV) Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day:

(2 Chr 6:19 KJV) Have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and the prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee:

(Psa 102:17 KJV) He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

(Prov 15:8 KJV) The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

(Prov 15:29 KJV) The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.

(James 5:15 KJV) And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Now it is undeniable that since we all do face eventually the same hardships, trials in life, we next all, all will have to call upon God for help.. sooner or later

ALSO IT IS MY OWN MANY MANY YEARS OF PERSONAL EXPERIENCE THAT MANY PEOPLE WITH CHRONIC PAIN ARE NOW BASICALLY REBELLIOUS WITH GOD, THEY DO FIRST NEED TO REPENT OF IT TOO BEFORE THEY CAN BE HEALED.. THEY ARE NICE PEOPLE TO BE AROUND WHEN THEY ARE SICK BUT SELF CENTERED MONSTERS OTHERWISE. NOW ALONG WITH 2 OTHERS I PRAYED FOR 30 PEOPLE TO BE HEALED, ONLY HALF WERE HEALED IMMEDIATELY INCLUDING OF CANERS ETC. AND GOD TOLD US IMMEDIATELY, SPECIFICALLY WHY HE WOYLD NOT HEAL THE OTHER HALF, AS THEY HAD UNRENTED OFF SINS STILL. CONFESS YOUR FAULT ONE TO ANOTHER STILL APPLIES HERE TOO James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much but not everything, prayer alone will not help if you or the others  still do refuse to repent, admit yours or their  own wrong doings.

Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

Isaiah 10:4 Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

NO SHORT CUTS

 

(Lam 3:39 KJV)  Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?
 
(Rom 12:1 KJV)  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
 
Too many persons are now still looking for the simple,  easy way out, an instant, a short cut even  to an easy, successful  super, spirituality , holy Christian living and it basically does not exist because God firstly still does want all of you, he does want  the full, continuous complete control of all your life, everything you do , think, endeavor.
 
(1 Cor 6:19 KJV)  What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
 
(1 Cor 6:20 KJV)  For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
 
(Gal 2:20 KJV)  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
 

Even when I am old

Psa 71:12  O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.

Psa 71:13  Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
Psa 71:14  But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
Psa 71:15  My mouth shall show forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
Psa 71:16  I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
Psa 71:17  O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
Psa 71:18  Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.

Our help is in the Lord

 

Psa 72:1  Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son.
Psa 72:2  He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
Psa 72:3  The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
Psa 72:4  He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
Psa 72:5  They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
Psa 72:6  He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.
Psa 72:7  In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
Psa 72:8  He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
Psa 72:9  They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.
Psa 72:10  The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
Psa 72:11  Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
Psa 72:12  For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.
Psa 72:13  He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
Psa 72:14  He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
Psa 72:15  And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.
Psa 72:16  There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
Psa 72:17  His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.
Psa 72:18  Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.
Psa 72:19  And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.
Psa 72:20  The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
 
Psa 73:1  A Psalm of Asaph. Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
Psa 73:2  But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
Psa 73:3  For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
Psa 73:4  For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.
Psa 73:5  They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.
Psa 73:6  Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
Psa 73:7  Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.
Psa 73:8  They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.
Psa 73:9  They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
Psa 73:10  Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.
Psa 73:11  And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?
Psa 73:12  Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
Psa 73:13  Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
Psa 73:14  For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
Psa 73:15  If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.
Psa 73:16  When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
Psa 73:17  Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.
Psa 73:18  Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.
Psa 73:19  How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
Psa 73:20  As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
Psa 73:21  Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
Psa 73:22  So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
Psa 73:23  Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.
Psa 73:24  Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
Psa 73:25  Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
Psa 73:26  My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
Psa 73:27  For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
Psa 73:28  But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.

The need for binding and loosening related to Satan, his evil spirits.

 
Interesting that my waiting for Internet provider this week to repair my non functioning internet services had been a great lesson on the need of patience as well.  Unfortunately patience alone here was inadequate. I had to also block, make void in Jesus name all the effects of the ruling evil spirits here. The same Evil spirits who did not want me to have access to the internet to spread, proclaim  God’s truths.
.
(Rev 18:2 KJV)  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
.
 (Mat 12:29 KJV)  Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.
.
1 Corinthians 2:14 Paul tells us – But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned.
.
We always do need to all understand that once we Christians have been saved, and we are living righteously we do now also have the full, present authority, through the shed blood of Jesus on our own behalf,  to bind any and all the effects of evil ones on us personally that are being sent to distract, hinder  us, to buffet, control, or harm us through “Binding and Loosening”.
.
I was lying in a Hospital bed next to a person  who had a controlling, dominating Spirit, he liked to do all the talking, and to be worshipped all the time as well.. he was a very evil man and I have met many others like him in realy life..So what I did I bound the evil spirits in him in Jesus name, refused to allow them to communicate with anyone else, or to each others, I commanded darkness and confusing upon all their plans, actions, and made void anything they did as well.. shortly the person started to act like any other normal person and he and I  had a peaceful rest also now..  http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2008/08/12/more-about-control-freaks/
.
 
We also do now have the authority to loose freedom, peace, and joy into our lives by appropriating freely, readily the word of God.   2 Timothy 1:7, For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.   (Gal 5:22 KJV)  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23    Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. ( note there is no restriction of having the fruit  of the holy spirit other than one must be born from above)
 .
Too many Christians falsely know or teach partial truths and now do falsely limit “Binding and Loosening” are to be used solely in the realm of  evangelism, or witnessing to others.
 .
“Binding and Loosening” can also be used in one’s personal life to dissolve the power, effect of evil spirits that are coming against us. We can bind ANY evil spirit that tries to interrupt,  disturb, terrorize, control, or destroy us, and we also do have the authority through Jesus to also now loose mass confusion, hindrances into the enemy’s camp, into an  evil persons life as well, and to  also  loose total love, joy, peace and contentment again in our lives. So go ahead and do so.
 .
We are often as Christians rightfully now taught that Presently Satan even though he is subject to Christ’s authority, empowerments, Satan he is very much presently alive and  active on earth, in our lives. 1 Peter 5:8 teaches us that Satan is “like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour”. But he Satan now only has as much power as we do allow him to have. We are in a war against him, we must use our weapons to fight him to overcome now all of his bad works on us too. Jesus has defeated Satan power over us at the cross, but that doesn’t prevent Satan from sending forth his evil spirits to try to steal, kill, and destroy you and all of mankind. That is what he Satan  does—the battle starts in the mind and he convinces us that he has power over us. He Satan next also sends evil spirits by means of evil persons against us as well.
.
Matthew 16:19, “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
.
Jesus himself now referred to binding and loosing as the keys to the kingdom. Keys that every born from above believer has access too.
.
What does it mean to bind on earth? It refers to your physical location; right now, where you are here on earth. Jesus is saying that the authority to bind and loose the effect of Satan and his cohorts  on us all are provided for us even still today, right now by Jesus paid price to use this right here on earth.
.
Remember, Jesus gave us power over ALL of the effect, power of the enemy. Its time we all do stand up and use our power— 1 John 4:4  greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.  (John 14:12 KJV)  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
.
2 Cor.10:3-5 – “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
.
Eph. 6:10-12 – “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole amour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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.”
.
(Mat 10:1 KJV)  And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
.
(Mark 6:7 KJV)  And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
.
(Mark 1:27 KJV)  And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commands he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
.
(Mark 3:11 KJV)  And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, You art the Son of God.
.
(Luke 4:36 KJV)  And they were all amazed, and spoke among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out.
.
(Luke 6:18 KJV)  And they that were vexed with unclean spirits:  they were healed.
.
(Acts 5:16 KJV)  There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and thse who were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
.
(Acts 8:7 KJV)  For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.
.

“Who is Satan?  Who is Lucifer?  Who is Beelzebub?”  “Lucifer” comes from the Latin word luciferos, which means “light bearer”, i.e., someone who carries a light.  “Satan” means “the Accuser.”  These and Beelzebub are some of the names for the Devil.
.

“Who or what is the Devil?”  Lucifer, the Devil, was the model of perfection 

  • most perfect
  • most wise
  • most intelligent
  • most powerful
  • most knowledgeable

being ever created. Ezekiel 28:12-15 [12] “Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: `This is what the Sovereign LORD says: ” `You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. [13] You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared. [14] You were anointed [specially selected] as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. [15] You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.  Ezekiel 28:16-19 [16] Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. [17] Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings. [18] By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your sanctuaries. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching. [19] All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.’ “
.

  
Demons, even spirits  are the Fallen Angels who willfully sided with Satan and became his followers, to carry out Satan’s  will instead of God.
.     

Rev. 12:7-10, “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

.

..”…. if God spared not the angels that sinned but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into CHAINS OF DARKNESS, to be reserved unto judgement “,…(2 Peter 2:4), and Jude, obviously referring to the same matter, writes…..”….the angels which kept not their first estate , but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting CHAINS UNDER DARKNESS unto the judgement of the great day.”….(Jude.v.6).

.

‘ evil spirits OR

.

Evil angels, however, are those who have fallen from their first estate (see Jude 1:6) since the Creation. The Bible records several different times when angels fell to earth. Some have already fallen (Genesis 6:2; Amos 5:26; Revelation 12:4) and some will fall in the future (Revelation 6:13, 8:10-11, 9:1). It is Satan, the great dragon, who entices them (Revelation 12:4), perhaps with promises that they will be worshipped by men as gods or rule over an earthly kingdom. Fallen angels learn wickedness and become apprentices of their new master Satan.
.
 
Unlike humans, fallen angels cannot be redeemed. Once angels rebel against God, they are permanently banned from God’s glory and presence. Some fallen angels are currently imprisoned until God’s day of judgment (I Peter 3:19-20; II Peter 2:4; Jude 1:6), and some rule the realm of darkness with Satan. They, too, will face the wrath of God (Matthew 25:41).
.
 
What Was the Sin of These Angels? 
.
  
The Bible confirms that there are angels who sinned: “Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker? Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly” (Job 4:17-18; also see Job 15:15, 25:5). In addition, the Bible tells us the origins of some fallen angels. 
 .
Every time the Old Testament mentions sons of God it is a reference to angels (compare Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7 and Psalm 89:6). In Genesis 6:2, sons of God (angels) took on human form — which angels can do (see Genesis 19:15-16; Hebrews 13:2). But these sons of God transgressed their created purpose by lusting after the daughters of men and marrying wives who bore them children. This evil brought mankind to a new realm of wickedness so frightening and terrible that God saw it necessary to destroy the earth with a flood, saving only Noah and his family.
.
Here is the Genesis account: “It came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown” (Genesis 6:1-2).
.
The fall of these angels is also told by Enoch, great-grandfather of Noah, who walked with God (Genesis 5:22). Copies of the Book of Enoch were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. Although this book is not a part of canonized Scripture, it does line up with the Genesis account and is, in fact, quoted in Scripture (see Jude 1:14).
.
Enoch told how these angels not only took human wives but also taught them the secrets of good and evil (remember that Adam and Eve ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thus opening the door to all knowledge). In this way fallen mankind became corrupted very quickly, soon requiring a world-wide flood to purge the human race. “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:4-13).
Enoch’s account also describes the consequences for the sin of these fallen angels. The angels felt remorse for their sin but were not allowed to return to their former estate in the heavens. They were bound (and are still bound, according to II Peter 2:4 and Jude 1:6) to await judgment. The children of those angel-human relations died, but their spirits would go throughout the earth as evil spirits to harass mankind. They would look for human bodies to inhabit; the male ones being malevolent spirits and the female ones being seductive spirits (or sirens).
.
In the last days, the earth will again become corrupted to complete wickedness. Jesus told us, “as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:37). In the end times the world will become just as wicked as it was before the Flood. Because of today’s heightened fascination with the occult and spirit world, it is entirely plausible that fallen angels and humans will mix once again, creating terrible chaos to bring about the final wrath of God.‘
.
Note we MUST come against the evil ones of the spiritual realm AS WELL. OH, YES!!! The spiritual realm DOES exist! There are those of you who would rather not believe that there is, but we must ask you right now. . . What is God? (Spirit) Where is heaven (in the Spiritual realm) What is Satan? (spirit) Where is he? (in the Spiritual realm) All of Satan’s evil ones (spirits, demons—whatever you prefer to call them) are in the Spiritual realm. They are very real even in our lives today. . . yes, in each and every one of our lives today.
.
Often that whatever happens in the natural realm happens in the Spiritual realm first. That is where the battles (the ones we don’t see) are fought out—in the spiritual realm. Satan has his workers (evil spirits) and God uses also His angels to fight out the battles in the heavenlies. The outcome of those battles, are what actually manifests itself in our lives, here, in the natural realm.
.
Our free will  prayers and our free will  binding and loosening are what moves God’s hands as well  in our situations, and as we pray, He releases more of His angels to war for us.  (Heb 1:14 KJV)  Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
 .
When confronted by a demon-possessed individual [the direct, inward control by a demon(s)], there are generally two possible reactions, namely the offensive approach and the defensive approach. The offensive approach includes the eventual. hopeful casting out the demon( s )
.
“Binding is like a temporary spiritual handcuffing. You can bind a demon spirit, much like tying something up with rope or chains. You cannot bind a person’s free will, but you can bind the demons affecting or influencing that person. Binding is NOT the same practice as casting out demons, casting out demons brings fourth lasting results, whereas binding is only to tie them down for a period of time. If you are trying to talk to or minister to somebody, and they seem impossible to get through to it can be helpful to bind up the spirits inside that person, which will handcuff the enemy so you can directly and effectively minister to that person without having them continually held back by the enemy’s interference. Another good time to bind is when the person isn’t ready for a deliverance and you are not willing to put up with their demonic personality. I have a friend who bound demon spirits which were in her teacher, who was a lesbian, and she stopped giving her any troubles since then! Was the teacher ready to be delivered? Highly unlikely. But that doesn’t mean you must live with her demonic personality, simply bind it whenever you are around that person, and it handcuffs the enemy from doing his work around you. Another good time to bind, is when you are half way into a deliverance (let’s say you got 20 out of 40 demons out) and you need your rest, like say it’s 2 am and you have to work the next day. You could simply bind the demons overnight, and finish the deliverance the next day.
.
Binding is a powerful witnessing tool: What keeps a person from accepting Jesus? The god of this world, which is Satan (working through his army of demons) has blinded their minds from the light of the gospel (2 Corinthians 4:4). Jesus taught us to bind the strong man, then we can plunder his house (Mark 3:27). If you have been trying to witness to somebody, and seem to be getting nowhere, try binding the spirits of darkness that are preventing that person from seeing the light in the gospel. You cannot bind a person’s will or force them to accept the gospel, but you can do something about the demons which are holding the person back. Once you take the demons out of the picture, you will be able to talk directly to that person without demons whispering in their ears and trying to combat what you are telling them.”
.
“Loosing, like binding, can be done here on earth, and takes effect in the spiritual realm. Loosing however, refers to the loosing of a captive or person in bondage. You bind demons, and you loose the captives. When Jesus set free the woman with the issue of blood, He said unto her, “Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.” (Luke 13:12)”
.
In contrast, the defensive approach  teaches the Christian to resist Satan and or the demon by submitting to God. WE HAVE TO DO BOTH BE DEFENSIVE AND OFFENSIVE
.
(Mat 16:15 KJV)  He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16   And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17   And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18   And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock ( JESUS)  I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19    And I will give unto thee ( ALL) the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
.
Now  the keys speak of our won, OWN  entrance into the kingdom of Heaven here on earth.
.
The 2 places that Jesus mentioned keys are Luke 11:52 and Revelation 1:18.
.
In Luke 11:52, he says, “Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering.”  Hosea 4:6, says “My people perish for lack of knowledge.”
.
TOO MANY PERSONS FALL PREY TO THE ENEMY, THE EVIL SPRITS, THE DEVIL BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN IGNORANCE ON HOW TO DEAL WITH THEM.
.
Also in Revelation 1:18, Jesus says, “I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and ( also ) have the keys of Death and Hades.”
.
“We CANNOT and MUST NOT try to bind or loose THE DEVIL, EVIL SPIRITS  in our name (or on our own accord). We MUST do so only “in the name of Jesus” under the leading of the Holy Spirit. a Christians is always to be lead personally  by the Holy Spirit still too. .
.
Remember the Scripture in Acts 19:20, that says: And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? (You see, God had done some mighty works and performed miracles by the hands of Paul, and of course, Jesus. So, when the 7 sons of Sceva decided they would like to go and be able to do that, they found out really quick that the evil spirits did not have to obey them—We can only bind them in the name of Jesus. Suffice it to say, right here, that one must be born again and blood-washed in order to bind anything spiritually in the name of Jesus.) “
.
Still  “binding and loosing”.   these two are actually different words, with totally different meanings, but they can used together,  they can be done in conjunction with one another. A good example of this is: I bind confusion off this troubled person, and I also do  loose, set free  his  freedom and clear-thinking . Or I bind the effects of the evil spirit on this persons and let loose the angels of God, the Holy Spirit to minister to him now instead.Simple too
.
To Bind, tie up, or secure as with a rope or cord; to hold or restrain with; to unite; to be tight or restricting.
To let loose; to release; not fastened, restrained, or contained; not bound; to make less strict; to release pressure.
.
Spirit filled,  Baptized of the Holy Spirit  persons  who  do have and use  the gifts of the Holy Spirit in operation now many times will feel led to bind a particular spirit, and/or to loose a particular spirit. These acts still are discerned by the Holy Spirit of God, are under the Holy Spirit leading, submission too,  where  it becomes necessary sometimes to pray openly for a release of the bondage that a certain spirit or spirits has that person bound in.
.
Jesus cast evil spirits, demons out by the Holy Spirit, healed the person  by the Holy Spirit, and in order for us to be able to do that, we firstly MUST be born from above  Christians and do it by the Holy Spirit,. That is why Jesus also  said that whatsoever we bind on earth, will be bound in heaven, etc.
.
Jesus  told us in John 14:12, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. All , this was not just for His disciples . . .it was for all of us! In Luke 10:19, He said, Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
.
Matthew, Chapter 18 :18 & 19—Jesus said: 18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again, I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
.
(Gal 1:16 KJV)  To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
.
Ephod 6:10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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.
.
“Spiritual warfare” now still means different things to different people. The term itself is not found in the scriptures, but the concept is often defined, rightfully taught as being led by the Holy spirit’s empowerment over the spiritual forces of darkness set against us all. .The Bible makes that clear. All  teachings on spiritual warfare must still be  rooted and grounded in the teaching of scripture, the Holy Spirit. Spiritual Warfare is a very important aspect of the Christian life because we do need to engage in it every day.  The true Biblical “spiritual warfare”is simply indirect confrontation with Satan our principle enemy. We believers in Jesus Christ  have been given weapons and strategies by Our heavenly Father to use now.  The key to successful spiritual warfare is also now finding the full Biblical truths, balance. . Spiritual warfare is done according to  Our source of authority which is the Word of God.  Scripture provides everything that we need for salvation and sanctification
.
(2 Tim. 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:3), therefore the Word of God should be our final authority. 2 Tim. 2:15 “Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the word of Truth.” Thus we must be on our guard, contending for the faith which was once delivered to the saints because certain men have crept in. (Jude 3 and 4). We are warned in 1 Tim. 4:1 and 6  that in the latter times some will turn away from the faith giving attention to deluding and seducing spirits and we are admonished to to be worthy stewards of Jesus Christ, ever using, nourishing our own selves on the truths of the faith so that we can always TRULY live victorious in Jesus Christ.
.
Now Binding and loosing alone are not enough.. the whole situation has to be next put personally under the control, lordship, power of God the teaching of scripture, the Holy Spirit. . being now obedient to God in all things..  (John 14:21 KJV)  He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
.
or
.
Mat 12:43  When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and fends none. 44  Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished. 45  Then goes he, and takes with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
.
This true Christianity and true  spiritual warfare includes now also every person  also next living a life of consecration, obedience and fellowship with God in such a way that we enable God to effectively use us to deal with the evil spirits,  persons working against us, and against other people. It is the  form of fully abiding in Christ as well that fully overcomes all of Satan’s legal and illegal grounds against us and others.  We are unable to deliver any Satan possessed persons for example from all the evil spirits if they still do  refuse to repent off, renounce their sins still.
 .
Again, how are we rightfully Biblically  instructed to basically overcome Satan and his followers?
.
1. Peter instructs us to “withstand him; be firm in the faith and by the use of our faith as well  against any and all of  his onset – rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined, knowing that while  the same sufferings, oppositions, hardships, tribulations, difficulties  are also now appointed to our brotherhood (the whole body of Christ) throughout the world.” we have also all the same empowerment to overcome it. (1 Cor 10:13 KJV)  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.9 (Or overcome it) (Rev 3:21 KJV)  To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. (Rev 12:11 KJV)  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
.
2. Paul teaches us daily to put on the whole armor of God. Our provided weapons include truth, righteousness, the gospel of peace, faith, salvation and the word of God   (Eph 6:14 KJV)  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:
.
3.  (1 Tim 1:18 KJV)  This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare; 19   Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
.
The scripture also teaches us all that we must wage a good warfare holding fast to an active  faith delivered to the saints by Jesus Christ, the Apostles, and the  Holy Spirit, and each one of us now also having a clear conscience.
.
And to our faith we must add knowledge as well  2 Cor 8:7 KJV  Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us..  (2 Pet 1:5 KJV)  And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6   And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;  7   And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
.
And we do also know that we must also continue take control of our own thought life by refuting arguments, theories and reasoning’s and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the true knowledge of God. We are to ongoing  lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (2 Cor 10:5 KJV)  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exaltS itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; :6    And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
.
(1 Sam 15:22 KJV)  And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
.
Again Scripture teaches us how to have victory over the devil and it is firstly  by putting on the whole armor of God (Truth, Righteousness, Gospel of Peace, Faith, Salvation, and the Word of God). All these are aspects of consecration, obedience to and fellowship with God. The Lord uses also our consecration and obedience to overturn Satan’s hold over matters in our lives and the lives of those we’ve been assigned to minister to –spiritually, socially, materially and physically. “We will be ready to punish every act of disobedience once (when) your obedience is complete,” 2 Corinthians 10:6  I know this is a hard pill to swallow but we must  even with good intentions be  careful that we are not walking in disobedience and error, but be always subject to the will of God as Jesus was .
.
Our Christ given authority is also to deal with demons in our ministry with other persons still depends on how God personally leads us by His Holy Spirit.
.
(Mat 7:21 KJV)  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
.
(Mat 12:50 KJV)  For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
.
4. In James 4:7. We are directly  taught to be subject to God and to Resist the devil – stand firm against him and he will flee from us.
.
We are  taught  in the scripture to   to STAND FIRM against Satan – even  the same way Jesus stood firm against him while being tempted in the wilderness. He did subject himself to the devil, do what the devil asked but stood against him even with the Word of God and we must do the same.
.
Some of us are taught that if we “bind Satan” in the name of Jesus or threaten him, if we pull down spirits in the air preventing their activity, they will leave us alone forever, no longer tempt us, or try to lure us away from our faith. This is simply not true. It is an ongoing process, war. We do  have to daily stand firm against Satan with the tools God gave us (obedience, prayer, His Word, His Spirit and etc.) and all of the ways that God has established for us.  Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God should be our final authority for all of our acts still too
.
Revelation 20:1-3 (AMP) “Then I saw an angel descending from heaven; he was holding the key of the Abyss (the bottomless pit) and a great chain was in his hand and he gripped and overpowered the dragon, that old serpent (of primeval times], who is the devil and Satan, and [securely] bound him for a thousand years. Then he hurled him into the Abyss (the bottomless pit) and closed it and sealed it above him, so that he should no longer lead astray and deceive and seduce the nations until the thousand years were at an end. After that he must be liberated for a short time.”
.
Revelation 20: 10 (AMP) “Then the devil who had led them astray [deceiving and seducing them] was hurled into the fiery lake of burning brimstone, where the beast and false prophet were; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”
.
One day Satan will be bound for 1,000 years shortly after Christ’s Second Coming. Following the Millennium, Satan will be deposited into the lake of fire for all eternity.
.
Therefore, the idea that believers can remove Satan and his demon armies permanently from all spheres of influence, from tempting us, afflicting us or harassing us and to try to distract us from serving and living unto God simply unbiblical and the realted teaching that many of us had which is to “bind him permanently  in the name of Jesus”is not found in the Bible and is  unbiblical.
.
Further more in Matthew 16:19 The meaning of this verse in context with the surrounding verses mean that Jesus gave Peter as well and indirectly all who will be His disciples, authority to bind believers, given   to the whole Church with the authority to exclude or loose from the Church those who did not believe.
.
This scripture teaches us that there is heavenly authority behind the disciples’ (and our) earthly actions. Peter was to bind things upon the earth, but only what had already been bound in heaven. The Apostles and Peter were to set the standard on earth for entrance into the kingdom of heaven based upon the standard which God has already set in heaven, spelled out by the Holy Spirit, Jesus. Peter one of  the mediators of the Word of God between God and man (by preaching it), as stated in Matt.16:16, namely, that Jesus was “the Christ, the Son of the living God” who has all power now in heaven and on earth.
.
In Matthew 18:18 The meaning of this verse in context with the surrounding verses (before and after it) teaches us all that about even church discipline and order. Not just the discipline of the evil spirits.  (1 Cor 14:33 KJV)  For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. (James 3:16 KJV)  For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
.
The Lord thus also was speaking about how to deal with unrepentant brothers and sisters lead by evil spirits even  in the Church .  Jesus is saying that believers can have confidence that when they justly excommunicate someone on earth, that they are fulfilling the will of God which has already been determined in heaven, the final authority to “bind and to loose” had to do with, the permitting or forbidding anything that was to be determined by a doctrinal decision.  (1 Cor 5:5 KJV)  To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
..
An acceptable condition for a believer to rebuke anyone is when he lovingly corrects a brother fallen into sin (Lk. 17:3; 1 Tim. 5:20). Throughout the New Testament, any rebuke is understood as also being under the sole prerogative of the Lord, the Holy Spirit. (Acts 5:4 KJV)  Whiles it remained, was it not  5    And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.
.
This is why Michael said when challenged by Satan, “The Lord rebuke you” (Jude 9).
.
“Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers,” Luke 22:31-32.
.
Jesus Christ, who was, is God made flesh, had prayed to the Father, for Peter’s deliverance. His spiritual warfare prayer or deliverance prayer in this case was addressed to God as well.. but he rebuked the Devil in Apostle Peter.
.
(Mat 16:23 KJV)  But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. 24  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
.
(Mat 4:10 KJV)  Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
.
 Now realize this Satan will continually not stand for the proclamation, application of these truths but will also try to detour, distract you, divert you, try to discredit the truth, even by using false teachers who will try to discourage you from following after this  revealed word of God, revealed will of the Jesus and his Holy Spirit. Who will you follow still God or Satan?
 
 
 

Sins, temptations offences.. the proper attitude

 
Luke 17:1 AND [Jesus] said to His disciples, Temptations (snares, traps set to entice to sin) are sure to come, but woe to him by {or} through whom they come! 2 It would be more profitable for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were hurled into the sea than that he should cause to sin {or} be a snare to one of these little ones [lowly in rank or influence].        

Luke 17:3 Pay attention {and} always be on your guard [looking out for one another]. If your brother sins (misses the mark), solemnly tell him so {and} reprove him, and if he repents (feels sorry for having sinned), forgive him. 4 And even if he sins against you seven times in a day, and turns to you seven times and says, I repent [I am sorry], you must forgive him (give up resentment and consider the offense as recalled and annulled).
 
 Luke 17:7 Will any man of you who has a servant plowing or tending sheep say to him when he has come in from the field, Come at once and take your place at the table? 8 Will he not instead tell him, Get my supper ready and gird yourself and serve me while I eat and 9 Is he grateful {and} does he praise the servant because he did what he was ordered to do? 10 Even so on your part, when you have done everything that was assigned {and} commanded you, say, We are unworthy servants [possessing no merit, for we have not gone beyond our obligation]; we have [merely] done what was our duty to do.
 
 Luke 17:11 As He went on His way to Jerusalem, it occurred that [Jesus] was passing [along the border] between Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as He was going into one village, He was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance. 13 And they raised up their voices and called, Jesus, Master, take pity {and} have mercy on us! 14 And when He saw them, He said to them, Go [at once] and show yourselves to the priests. And as they went, they were cured {and} made clean.  15 Then one of them, upon seeing that he was cured, turned back, recognizing {and} thanking {and} praising God with a loud voice; 16 And he fell prostrate at   17 Then Jesus asked, Were not [all] ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18 Was there no one found to return and to recognize {and} give thanks {and} praise to God except this alien?  
   

(James 1:21 KJV)  Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22  But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23  For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24  For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
 
(James 1:26 KJV)  If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27    Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. 
 
(1 Chr 16:22 KJV)  Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
 
(Prov 3:30 KJV)  Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.
