A life filled with miracles is possible for every true believer. Jesus reminded us of this truth when He said to His disciples in Mathew 10:6-8, “But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And 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.”
So what happened to us believers? Why aren’t we displaying Jesus’ miraculous healing power to heal and deliver the sick and oppressed?
Throughout history there have been Christians who have taken Jesus’ commandments seriously and allowed the miraculous power of the Holy Spirit to heal and deliver people through their ministries. In the God’s Generals website you can read about a few of these amazing early Christians. There is a wonderful book and also a DVD series about their lives and ministries that also reveals why some of them have failed. Their stories are filled with accounts of people who were healed and delivered from all kinds of so-called “incurable diseases.” Unfortunately some of these great evangelists became prideful and hungry for personal power. Dishonest and false “faith healers” also began to emerge and take advantage of vulnerable people. There were also “psychics” who were involved in the occult and exoteric teachings were also growing worldwide. Sadly, many Christians became afraid of getting involved with any ministry that invoked the the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit. More and more Christians became fearful and began rejecting and condemning all the ministries that promoted supernatural healing and miracles. This fear has greatly blocked and prevented the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit to move freely in the Church. Sadly, to this day, there are many denominations who continue to suppress the power of the Holy Spirit.
Thankfully a few Christians stayed true to Jesus’ requests and their legacy continued to grow. In tomorrow’s post, I will share about a wonderful school of ministry that is equipping Christians all around the world to operate in the supernatural.
Indeed Miracles are REAL and they are the birthright of every Christian! Have fun reading about God’s Generals and be assured that God wants you to step up and take your place in His Loving Army!
