God Heals and Rejuvenates another Co-Worker!

Yesterday, I was suppose to get to work a little early.  One of my co-workers wanted to be healed, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth!  Not only had he heard me talking, but he had seen the aftermath of  God in action.  

We ended up needing to reschedule for today.  I told him I would be on fire for God and ready to go.  In the meantime, I prayed and fasted for his healing.  I asked God to heal “John” for His praise and glory.

I always tell people it’s not me.  It’s God, who is looking for willing vessels of honor.  He’s looking for us to have faith in Jesus Christ, and cooperate with Him!  Anyone can do this with God!  Believe it!  Just go for it!  Have faith in God!

John saw another co-worker had already been healed by God.

Today at work, John told me how he had witnessed  “Floyd” in the wheelchair at work.  He said one day Floyed showed up at work in a wheelchair, then the next thing he knew, he was walking again!  When he described it, he was definitely surprised at how quickly Floyd had recovered. I told John how God healed Floyd at work.  John listened to the testimony as he prepared to receive his healing.

It was his turn!

I opened the bible to the book of Acts: Chapter 3.  I read to him aloud, outside of our work place, how the servants of God healed the man who was disabled.  After the man was healed, he praised God.  Then, I went to the book of Mark: Chapter 16, and shared with him how God said we would have evidence of true believers and God being real.  One of those evidences was laying hands on the sick and they would recover.

I asked him what was troubling Him.  He said his knees hurt.  He said he had a hamstring that gave him problems, and his shoulder hurt too.  He was ready to be healed now.

I asked him if I could lay hands on his forhead, and he agreed.  He took his cap off, and I lay my hands on his forehead.  I then began to command healing like before.  It went something like this:

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth,  I command you to come out of him.  I command you, knees, to be healed and not hurt anymore.  Hamstring and shoulder be healed.  All pain, you are commanded to cease and leave the body now.  Be realigned and working properly. 

Believe and receive this healing!  God, I thank You for healing John.  I praise You for doing it by Your power and Your godliness.  

Be healed.  You are healed.  God has healed you!

God healed John.

Immediately after we were done, John reacted.

“I feel chills,” John said afterwards. “My knee feels as if it is tingling.”

We talked a little more as we headed into the work place.   He asked me for a bible, but I didn’t have an extra one to give him at the time.  I am going to see if I can find him one.  In the meantime, I sent him the link to www.biblegateway.com so he can do bible study on the internet, or get an app.  I also offered to do some bible studies with him, and we talked about what we would do.  He was genuinely interested in getting to know God now.

I told him that what I had done with him today, he could do also.  I described the process of getting to know God, like a newborn baby needing to get to know their parents.  They are not born knowing their parents.  You need to study scripture, practice righteousness, and get to know God!

Then, you will heal people because God will be with you, in Jesus’s name!  You must have faith in God before He can use you!   You must have faith in Jesus, and live like you mean it!

John declares “Jesus is Lord” and wants to serve God at the work place.

As we went inside the workplace, I asked John if I could lead him in prayer to tell God that he really wanted this, and He wanted to live and have faith in Jesus.  He agreed, and we stopped at the corner of the hallway there, and prayed.

He declared with his mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and asked God to use him for His work, and service.  Then, we headed our separate ways to work and I needed to clock in.  Later on in the day, I told him of another testimony from a lady who was healed from being legally blind, with a vision measured at 20 over 500, and non-existent peripheral vision!  God healed her through some other ministers, and she shared her testimony at our church on Sunday.  John responded with amazement.

“I feel rejuvenated when you tell me your stories!,” he said.

This man will do well for God.  He believed, he received and now he is ready to work for the True King:  Almighty God!  I will keep him in my prayers.

  1. It’s God, who is looking for willing vessels of honor.

    He creates the vessels of honor. (Romans 9:21)

    He’s looking for us to have faith in Jesus Christ, and cooperate with Him!

    He causes people to have faith. (John 6:44)

    God said we would have evidence of true believers and God being real. One of those evidences was laying hands on the sick and they would recover.

    Indeed many were healed by believers. But this is not a necessary sign that someone is a believer today.

    From A True Church:

    The gifts of the Holy Spirit were (and still are) given by God for the building up of the body of Christ (Romans 12:6; 1 Corinthians 12:7, 11). Some gifts in the past (during the days of the apostles) were of the nature of signs and wonders (Acts 2:1-43) and some were (are) focused upon the mutual edification of the church (Romans 12:6-8).

    The purpose of the signs and wonders gifts were to confirm the word of the apostles and those in the church (during those first years of the church) that the things proclaimed about Christ were true. God, via the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the miraculous signs of the apostles, was bearing testimony to the proclamation of His Word about Christ (Mark 16:17-20; Acts 14:3). As it is written,

    how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will? (Hebrews 2:3-4)

    Scripture gives no specific time for when these signs and wonders ceased existing. 1 Corinthians 13:8 does say “tongues will cease,” but it does not say when tongues will cease. Yet, we see in the Scriptures a diminishing and ceasing role of these signs and wonders via the examples of Paul and James.

    Paul had the God-given ability to do signs and wonders (Acts 19:12; Romans 15:19; 2 Corinthians 12:12) and to be able to heal people (Acts 28:8-9). Yet, near the end of his life, he did not heal Timothy of his stomach ailments and frequent infirmities. Instead of instructing him to get healed, he told him to drink a little wine (1 Timothy 5:23). Also, Paul left Trophimus sick in Miletus (2 Timothy 4:20). Furthermore, when James writes to the “twelve tribes which are scattered abroad,” he does not tell them to call the one with the gift of healing to heal the sick. Instead, he says,

    Is anyone among you sick? 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. And the prayer of faith will save the sick. (James 5:14-15).

    We believe God may still do the miraculous (Jeremiah 32:27). But, we do not believe He is still “confirming the word through the accompanying signs” (Mark 16:20) and “bearing witness both by signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit” (Hebrews 2:4).

    There are many today who claim He is “confirming the Word through the accompanying signs, by signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit,” but their claim is idle. When one honestly compares this claim with the infallible Word, there is no comparison (see the four gospels and Acts). The signs and wonders of Christ and the apostles were undeniable works of God (miraculous), and evident to all (i.e., recognized to be true miracles by the masses). Even their enemies could not deny their miraculous nature (e.g. Luke 23:35; John 11:47; Acts 4:16). But, such is not the case with those today who claim to be doing the same work.

    Even if this was the case, in other words, even if they did perform “miracles” that were evident to all, we (believers) living in the last days (2 Timothy 3 and 4) should beware. Christ warned us in Matthew 7:22-23 that there would be many who will say,

    Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?

    These are false teachers who will be damned, because they are those “who practice lawlessness” (i.e., they are evil, similar to Matthew 23:27-28). He, likewise, warned that after the abomination of desolation is set up (Matthew 24:15), “false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, the elect” (Matthew 24:24).

    Actually, if a man (or men) claims to be doing something great (miraculous like what Christ and the apostles were doing), from the warning above, such a claim and/or such an act should actually put the true believer on guard, like in Deuteronomy 13:1-4.

    In any case, the message (i.e. doctrine) is to be tested according to the Word (1 Thessalonians 5:21). If their prophecy errs, we know on this alone they are false (Deuteronomy 18:20-22).

    Also, the Lord has let us know who will come in the future (in truth) and of what kind of miracles they will perform (see Revelation 11).

    • Daniel, thank you for your comment. Yes, God is Creator. It is His will that we also possesses our vessels in sanctification and honor. Additionally, He does indeed draw us to Him, and we are challenged to continue in faith.

      As for signs, wonders, and miracles, the gifts are indeed still available today, which I have witnessed first hand. The Holy Spirit gives such gifts as He decides. For me personally, I asked God the Father in prayer and then I got the gift of healing.

      SOURCES:

      1 Corinthians 12:1-3,7-11
      12 Brothers and sisters, I want you to know about the gifts of the Holy Spirit. 2 You know that at one time you were unbelievers. You were somehow drawn away to worship statues of gods that couldn’t even speak. 3 So I want you to know that no one who is speaking with the help of God’s Spirit says, “May Jesus be cursed.” And without the help of the Holy Spirit no one can say, “Jesus is Lord.”

      7 The Holy Spirit is given to each of us in a special way. That is for the good of all. 8 To some people the Spirit gives a message of wisdom. To others the same Spirit gives a message of knowledge. 9 To others the same Spirit gives faith. To others that one Spirit gives gifts of healing. 10 To others he gives the power to do miracles. To others he gives the ability to prophesy. To others he gives the ability to tell the spirits apart. To others he gives the ability to speak in different kinds of languages they had not known before. And to still others he gives the ability to explain what was said in those languages. 11 All the gifts are produced by one and the same Spirit. He gives gifts to each person, just as he decides.

      1 Thessalonians 4:3-5
      3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God

      Colossians 1:21-23
      21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight— 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.
