"Ok, watch this." - In Jesus - 12-12-2013

Walking home from work today I noticed a man who was walking toward a set of front stairs for a building I was walking by and noticed that he seemed to be favoring one of his legs a bit more than the other. I walked toward him saying "Excuse me sir." He was already up the small set of three steps and I was still at ground level when he looked at me. Looking up at him slightly I asked "Do you have any pain in your body?" He said "Ya, in my knee." pointing to it and then moving it toward me slightly. I asked if I could pray for him but he didn't seem to hear me. I thought it was funny that he moved it toward me though, so I just said "Ok, watch this." and put my hand on his knee and commanded "Knee be completely healed. Pain, go. Tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bones, be healed and made whole, right now, in Jesus' name." I stepped back saying "Check it out." while motioning with my own leg bending it up and down. I smiled at him while he was moving it up and down and he smiled back. I said "Gone?" and he said "Yep." nodding his head with a big grin. I asked "Do you know Jesus?" and he said "Yes." nodding his head. He went to shake my hand and said "Thank you." I said "God bless you." and we parted ways.

It's that easy saints. No formula though. Basically whatever way you do it, if you have faith that what the Lord Jesus Christ did 2000 years ago, 'by whose wounds we were healed' 1 Peter 2:24, Isaiah 53:4-5, Matt.8:17, that He has given you His Spirit and anointed YOU 2 Cor. 1:20-22, 1 John 2:20, 1 John 2:27, that He has given you authority Luke 10:19, and that He has given you a commission to go 'as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.' Matt. 10:7-8, Matt. 28:18-20, He will work through you and you will see others healed, set free, and saved. If they don't know the Lord, share what He has done for them (died on a cross for their sins, and rose from the grave to defeat sin, sickness and death) and compel them, saying if they repent and believe the good news, turning from their sins, and continuing to follow Him all of their days, they will be saved!

Grace, peace and love in Jesus Christ!
