Faith Healing Miracle Testimony with Methods of Dominion:
This is Part 2 of the healing testimony and is describing the methods used.
Luke 10:17-19 “And the seventy returned again with joy saying, ‘Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name.’ And He said, ‘I beheld Satan and lightning fall from heaven.’ Behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and all of the power of the enemy.”
Now that first word “power” there is the Greek word that means authority. “I give you authority to tread over all of the power of the enemy.” That second word, power, is the Greek word that means ability. “I give you authority over all of the enemy’s ability.” If you have ability over the enemy, that means you have to fight with him. You have to deal with him. Physically, basically, you have to fight with him. But if you have authority, you say, “No. Stop it.” And that stops his ability. If you have authority over his works, that means you can destroy and heal those works back to the will of God in the name of Jesus. You see, by Jesus you have authority over the devil and his works to destroy them.
Authority speaks. Ability has to fight. It has to wrestle. But authority speaks, and it has to be done. A cop does not have to come up and grab you. A cop says, “Stop.” He puts his hand up in front of your car, and you stop. Why? Because he has authority. He doesn’t have to come by your car window, and as you drive past, and he has to grab you by the throat or something, and make you stop. If he does, you are a rebel. You’re a criminal.
Authority is the right to do something and assume the power to enforce that assignment. I may have a gun, but I as a civilian don’t have authority to shoot people, or hunt out of season, or off of game lands. The devil has ability, but he has no authority. If a policeman gives a command, and it is not followed, then he calls in more aggressive strength to enforce his words. We do the same when, if on the first command the demon or sickness does not move, we go into aggressive “artillery or combat or SWAT mode,” where we hit it with commands again and again, and “go after it,” with continued faith actions until it obeys and the person is healed. Not reacting aggressively if the demon ignores your first commands, means you are not exercising authority.
14 And he (Jesus) was casting out (driving out with multiple words, in the process of ejecting) a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass (over time), when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.”
Here we see Jesus casting out a demon that causes dumbness, not able to speak. Jesus was exercising authority expecting God to enforce His words, and “it came to pass,” God did by Holy Spirit. This is the same Holy Spirit that dwells in the born-again-in-Jesus Christian. In this case the demon did not go out with just one word, it took a process. If Jesus had to use a process, so can we.
We never look at the size of the problem because Holy Spirit, the Greater One, dwells within us. There is no power in the Universe that is a match for Him. The devil will try to get you to focus on you and/or the problem and off of God. Your job is to get strong in the strength of the Lord for your ministry efforts.
Godly authority enforces the will of God. Authority speaks; believing speaks; if you are believing, you will be speaking with authority.
2 Cor 4:13
13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I logos/spoken (commands, direction, instruction); we also believe, and therefore logos/speak (commands, direction, instruction).”
Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Authority and Faith for God. To release authority or faith, you must speak the words of God with authority. These words release Holy Spirit and apply Him to the situation. We call these commands, directions, and instructions on what to do. We are not speaking directly to God; we are speaking directly to the situation, the mountain, the problem, and expecting God to empower our words. Faith speaks. No speaking in authority means no faith. Little speaking in authority means little believing. Much great speaking in authority means great faith or great believing. If there are no faith actions, there is no faith. To be active in faith means to be active in speaking authority for God. This is seen in aiteo commands as Jesus taught, and we will get into that later.]
Please let me know if you find this useful. Or have any improvement suggestions.
If you find it useful, please feel free to pass it on to others.
If Jesus spent 3-6 hours a day, 1-4 all nights a week, and often arose early in the morning for Scripture prayer, and Peter, James, Paul and other disciples did the same, and all taught their disciples to do the same, along with 1-6 hours a day in Holy Spirit tongues, why not you? So if you wonder where your answers from God are, now you know.
If you did not spend the time and “Jesus-effort” before the battle, do not be surprised if you have to spend it in the battle to get victory. Otherwise learn to accept defeat, and blame it on something else rather than your lack of diligence. If you are a child of God, born-again in Jesus, you have all the power of God there is. The issue is you effectively renewing your mind to release God.
God spent the wonder of the Universe, Jesus, for our healing and blessing. The issue is not God withholding anything. The issue is us doing the right things to release Him, as God is no respecter of persons, nor can He show partiality (Acts 10:34-35).
A Bible not devoured is like bags of seed stored away. The potential of God into the earth is there, but rarely a harvest is made. Jesus is the Seed. The only soil that matters is your heart.
The truly difficult thing is the consequences of not managing your thought life.
Keep Working the Word so God can Work!
God Bless You and Yours in the Name of Jesus to be more Noble in Him (Acts 17:11-12)
Jesus is Lord of Heaven and Earth!
