All over the world people are STILL experiencing the miraculous healing power of Jesus Christ. In North and South America reports of cancer and massive tumors are INSTANTLY disappearing when people call upon the name of Jesus. Diabetes, blindness and deafness, arthritis, chronic back problems, cystic fibrosis, etc all going away through the power of Christ. In Africa there are accounts of paralytics and cripples miraculously standing up, walking, then running jumping and dancing before the Lord who healed them. There are also reports that people are being delivered from evil spirits in Africa. Even in China Christs healing power is seen where there have been numerous eye witness accounts of people rising from the dead all by the power of the name of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God.
Jesus can, desires to, and WILL do the same for you TODAY! In John 5 Jesus asks a man who had been paralyzed for almost 40 years what seemed to be a foolish question; “Do you want to get well?” What kind of question was that? The man had been bed ridden for decades! Of course he wanted to be healed. But you see the problem was that this man kept making excuses. After this man went on a rant about how everyone got their blessing before he could, how he cant do anything, and no one would help him Jesus simply looked at him and said, “Stand up and walk.” and thats exactly what he did.
Jesus wants to heal you right now wherever you are, whatever you need. All you need is the power of a willing healing savior(which you already have)and faith. Jesus often responded to those who were healed, “your faith has healed you”, or “as you believed, so it will be done unto you.” Reach out in faith and receive your healing. Christ commanded his followers to pray for the sick. Thats exactly what I want to do. This blog is created so that you can receive your healing right NOW! Simply type your need as a comment to this post and I will pray for you. WHEN Jesus heals you, please feel free to leave another comment sharing what the Lord has done for you.
When confronting the issue of homosexuality for some reason Christians seem at a loss as to how to deal with it. How do you minister to a person living a homosexual lifestyle? What do you do if an openly gay person wants to teach in Sunday School, Youth Group, Children’s Church, sing in the praise team, etc? Ask these questions to any minister or active church goer and they almost become paralyzed and don’t know quite how to respond. The reason for this is because the Church has been tricked into believing that LGBT is like a race, nationality, ethnic group, gender, etc. So saying that the homosexual lifestyle is sinful is equivalent to saying that being African American, or Hispanic is sinful. Its on the same level of saying that being a Woman is wrong. So we are tricked into believing that we are on the same level as members of the KKK or Nazis if we speak against homosexuality.
This is a LIE straight from the pit of Hell. “Gay” is not a race, nationality, ethnic group, gender, etc. It is a sinful destructive lifestyle just like any other sinful lifestyle. It is no different than drug addiction, alcoholism, sexual immorality, prostitution, idolatry, etc. Satan’s goal here is simply to deceive the Church into accepting Sin as normal. It makes no difference if they are born that way or not. The Bible says that we are ALL born into the curse of Sin and are born with the instinctive nature to live a life of disobedience and rebellion toward God. So I guess you could say, we are ALL “born that way”.
When someone asks me a question like, “What should I do if a homosexual wants to teach Sunday School?” I simply respond, “What would you do if a drug addict or drunk wanted to teach Sunday School?” Most people say that they would definitely not let anyone living such a lifestyle teach or have a ministry or leadership position in the church. Why should homosexuality be any different. Its a sinful lifestyle just like the lifestyle of drunkenness is. We shouldn’t elevate it to something its not. Whenever we have questions on dealing with this issue, it is extremely helpful to take out the word “homosexual” and replace it with the word “drug addict” or “alcoholic”. Then we clearly see the appropriate response in each scenario.
One of the most common objections and charges brought against the Church is that it is full of hypocrites. This is false. I know, that’s a substantial claim. First let me define what I mean by the word, “hypocrite”. If a Christians wakes up at 2am for a late nights snack and while wondering around in the dark stubs his toe and lets a four letter cuss word slip out, he is not a hypocrite. That was an accident, a mistake. He doesn’t make a habit of using profanity. He let his flesh get the best of him in that moment. However, if a Christian constantly has profanity rolling from his tongue, sleeps around, lives a life of drunkenness, gossip, anger, selfishness, and willingly knowingly continues to live a life of Sin while claiming to be a follower of Christ, that person is a hypocrite, and people maintain that the Church is full of them. This is because of their misunderstanding of the Church. People think that the Church is the four square building with a steeple on top of it. They think that the people in the Church are the people who sit on the pues on Sundays. The Bible says that the Church is the Body of Christ which consists of only true believers(1 Corinthians 12:12-30). Hypocrites are pretenders among God’s people like goats among sheep, bad fish among good fish, weeds among wheat until the day when God separates them at Judgment. The Bible says that hypocrites are false converts, false brethren, and imposters(2 Corinthians 11:13-15, Galatians 2:4, 2 John 1:9-11). Christians are commanded in 1 Corinthians 5:9-13 not to have anything to do with hypocrites. Jesus said that they would end up in Hell(Matthew 24:51). In short, there are no hypocrites in the Church. If a person is hypocrite, they are not a Christian, and are therefore not part of the Church.
For those who have said something similar to this statement, do you realize what you are doing when you say that? By saying, “my god wouldn’t…”, or “my god would…” you are creating a god to suit yourself. The Bible calls that Idolatry. God has clearly revealed himself and who he is in his Word. When we make up an image in our heads that is contrary to what the Bible reveals about him we make a False God. You may claim that your god wouldn’t send anyone to Hell and your right. Thats because he doesn’t exist. The Bible says that no Idolater will inherit the kingdom of God. God is a just god. The Bible says that when we die we will all have to face God at Judgment. On that day he will expose and bring out into the open everything we have ever done, said, and even thought about and bring them into judgment under the light of God’s Law(the Ten Commandment). Then there will be no excuses, no way to justify ourselves. The evidence against will be plain, and indisputable. The verdict of “Guilty” will be certain, and the Judge will give us our just punishment in Hell. Thank God that he sent his Son Jesus to pay the penalty for our crimes on the cross. He paid our debt, paid our fine. If we turn from our sins(repent) and trust in the Savior, will be forgiven, cleanses, pardoned, set free, and granted Eternal Life in Heaven. We will also be Born Again, given a new life, and a new heart. How much time do you have left?
