What do I believe

Early on I had to share this scripture in out ISCF group, I had no idea what it meant, I just knew it was the Word of God, nervously I read:
1 Corinthians 12:1–11 NIV
Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit. There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
1 Corinthian
We spend plenty of time on Prophesy the vocal gifts which are, word of wisdom, tongues and interpretation of tongues.
I praise God for good teaching early on because this becomes the framework of our lives:
Ps John - believes for healing
I was taught:
We get what we desire and what we go after as we align our hearts and lives with the will and Word of God.
Gifts of Power
Miraculous powers
Vocal gifts
Gifts of insight
Discerning of spirits
Much of our time in church has been spending time in the Gifts that are vocal and have insight, however I believe that we are called to be a complete church, displaying the fullness of Christ.
The fullness of Christ dwells in His church the body of Christ, we need one another.
We are one body with many parts,
1 Corinthians 12:12–14 NIV
Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.
1 Corinthians 12:12
The gifts are give for two purposes
to show Christ’s love to bring about salvation
Points people to Christ.
2 Directs people to Christ - sign post, points people to Christ.
I believe that healing is the plan of God for all believers when we receive His salvation he also gives us healing.
He not only heals our soul but also heals our hearts.
A repeat an observation from someone last weekend, not a christian: I heard last weekend was that the reason aboriginal people from this particular community are so sick, a) poor diet b) Poor souls from trauma and the challenges of life.
Where suicide, depression, sickness, abuse - physical, substance etc, but also grief is overwhelming. The heart is sick and the body is sick.
3 John 2 NKJV
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
Healing is God’s plan from the OT through to the NT
He promised healing to Israel
in Jeremiah, in Exodus, in Psalm through out the scriptures.
Psalm 41:4 NIV
I said, “Have mercy on me, Lord; heal me, for I have sinned against you.”
Luke 4:18 NIV
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free,
Testimony of healing
Glandular Fever, excessive tiredness
Papaloma’s on my feet
Rash about 18 months ago
Proverbs 4:22 NIV
for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body.
Proverbs 4:21–22 NIV
Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body.
Praying for the sick
Pray the sciptures:
By his stripes I am healed
Word of God says if I “lay hands on the sick they will recover”
Laying on of hands,
Luke 4:40 NIV
At sunset, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying his hands on each one, he healed them.
Mark 16:10 NIV
She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping.
Mark 16:13–18 NIV
These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either. Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen. He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
Mark 16:
Mark 16:
Luke 4:4 NIV
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.’”
Luke 4:40
Luke 4:40 NIV
At sunset, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying his hands on each one, he healed them.
What we want and desire:
We want you to grow in faith and believe, step our and see what God will do.
Faith is stepping out, you don’t know how or what or why but all you know is to step out.
Pray for Boldness
This is also an evidence of God the Holy Spirit on your life.
My prayer that many of you will receive the gift of Healing, if you desire it, it will come.
There is so much more I can
My prayer is that signs and wonders will follow the preaching of the Word.
My prayer is that you will receive boldness to pray and believe.
