Divine healing teaching

I just wanted to share some teaching that I found a number of years ago before I started praying for the sick. This teaching is clear and simple and may help to rid you of some traditions that might have kept you as Christians from fulfilling what Jesus told the 12 (Matt. 10:7-8, Luke 9:1-6), the 70 (Luke 10:1-12, Luke 10:17-20), and ultimately us (Matt. 28:18-20, Mark 16:15-18, John 14:12-14) to do in fulfilling the Great Commission. If you read through these and look through the scriptures to confirm them, I believe you will find that it is quite different than what you may have been taught, what you may believe now, or may have believed in the past, depending on where you are in your understanding of divine healing and God's will in the matter.

I have had a lot of questions about divine healing of physical illness and I understand that I am not alone. I began to study the teachings of John G. Lake. Often, I found that I was ambivalent, wanting to believe that "Jesus heals them all" and yet observing the plight of many who seemed to believe in divine healing and yet were not healed, on this earth.   Why are only about 1 out of 20 receiving divine healing in this country, in spite of their faith?  Why were 75% healed in some other countries and under the ministry of John G. Lake?  Is it simply that they don't have any thing else to believe in but divine healing and we actually put our trust in everything but God?

Please understand that I was already commanding spirits of infirmity to go (vs. praying long prayers for healing) before I studied John G. Lake.  I saw a woman get out of a wheelchair after 37 years, dance and run.  I saw 2 other women with serious crippling arthritis healed instantly and run up and down the steps with ease. Recently, 4 out of 5 of the people I have prayed for with serious illnesses were healed instantly or that week!  I have prophesied the divine healing of a man with cancer, commanded the cancer to go and saw him healed that week.  His divine healing was documented, before - by x-ray and after - by cat scan. 

I was healed of 24 out of 26 diagnosed illnesses when I learned how to pray scripture daily. Read Carlotta's Testimony. The first divine healing that I prayed for was for my dog who needed knee surgery.  God healed him that day and surgery was cancelled.  I commanded a spirit of cancer to leave a neighbor and he was healed of Lung Cancer.  I don't claim to have all the answers. You definitely don't have to have great faith. In fact, sometimes I think that God heals unbelievers faster.  Its not really about us; its about Him.

Along with Kathryn Kuhlman and John G. Lake, I ask, "Why isn't everyone healed?"  If Jesus "healed them all," what is hindering divine healing today -- in us?  Is it important to repent, to root out the roots and to close open doors to the enemy, in order to be healed?  I thought I would ask you what you believe about divine healing.  I have a summary of many of John G. Lake's teachings on divine healing listed below. 

Are you ready to let God pinpoint your doubts about divine healing?  I have been shocked to find out that most people, who submit results, say they agree with most of these teachings from the book of St. Luke in the New Testament.

  • God's will is for us to expect to receive divine healing every time.
  • We are commanded to heal all of the sick; we do not need a special "leading or unction."
  • Every believer is already an "heir" of all the authority he needs to minister healing.
  • All believers can minister healing effectively; some have specialized gifts of healing.
  • God's desire is to heal all of our diseases just as He forgives all of our sins.
  • Jesus never asked Father God to heal anyone, He commanded healing and deliverance.
  • Jesus healed thousands at a time without requiring them to repent or believe first.
  • Great faith is not necessary or the key to receiving divine healing from disease.
  • The disciples did not "intercede" for healing; they commanded spirits of infirmity to leave.
  • Our traditions about healing have hindered us from demonstrating the power of God.
  • Unconfessed sins may make people sick but they do not keep them from being healed.
  • Jesus healed them all, regardless of their level of faith, if they wanted to be healed.
  • Jesus never tried to find the root cause of the illness or the sin that "opened the door."
  • Jesus was never prevented from healing due to the sin of their ancestors.
  • Jesus taught the disciples to command spirits of infirmity to leave rather than to intercede.
  • We command healing with the power of God impartiality and it flows every time.
  • We are not to judge who is confessed up, in faith and ready to be healed.
  • The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is given so that we will minister in the power of God.
  • We are commanded to lay hands on the sick and pray a prayer of faith (authority.)
  • The commandment to heal the sick is sufficient without a rhema word for each person.
  • Healing sometimes takes time to manifest, while miracles are usually instant.
  • Healing for every illness has already been provided in our salvation by the cross of Christ.
  • The only requirement for a person to receive healing is to want to be healed.
  • God is an equal opportunity healer and is never the cause of a delay of healing.
  • God will reveal any specific keys to divine healing readily, usually as soon as we ask.
  • God never causes illness to teach us a lesson; it is never His will for us to be sick.
  • God is willing to minister healing and creative miracles through any believer.
  • We are to command the power of God without picking and choosing who is worthy.
  • We have authority to cast out even the devils that people think they want to keep.
  • We can receive gifts by the "laying on of hands and impartation" from other believers.
  • N.T. believers initiated divine healing and deliverance at will and the anointing flowed.
  • Signs and wonders follow our belief vs. we wait for a new command every time.
  • As believers, we cannot increase our healing anointing except by exercising it.
  • Believers already have 100% of the Holy Spirit -- all that we will ever have.
  • Christ, in me, is always instantly available to destroy the works of the devil though me.
  • God will heal through any believer, because it is not about us, but about His goodness.
  • Every believer is God's child, man's servant and the devil's master.
  • We don't beg God for their healing; we proclaim freedom for the captives or prisoners.
  • There is no one who is so bad that God will not heal them.
  • The main hindrance to receiving healing, is believing that there are hindrances to healing.
  • Because Christ is in me, I already have all the power and anointing that I will need.
  • God's anointing abides within me, is always ready to heal and is always on.
  • God has healed me every time that I commanded spirits of infirmity to leave me.
  • God has healed most of the people that I have ministered divine healing to.
  • God never withholds any good thing from me and will heal me every time I ask.
  • God will heal every believer -- until He is ready to take them home to Heaven.
  • Sickness is the devil's work and Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil.
  • We do have to maintain our healing with faith, even if we didn't have faith to be healed.
  • Returning to sin can enable spirits of infirmity to come back on us.
  • We must exercise our authority, refusing to receive spirits of infirmity back again.
