MGHM Healing Brief, 9/10

The Sword of the Spirit

Can the visible world be shaped by mere words? The idea seems frankly superstitious in our time, but it was taken for granted by the ancient Hebrews. God Himself spoke the world into being. Prophets not only predicted the future, they shaped it with their words, sometimes at a distance of several centuries.

So it's not surprising that the Bible tells us to speak healing to our sick bodies, minds, and spirits. And when modern Christians set aside their sophistications and obey the Bible, they soon discover that the Spirit is present and active in every syllable of the Word they speak.

Because God lives in us

In fact, as Christians we have a huge advantage over the Old Testament prophets. Because God lives in us, each of us is a Christ-bearer, fully equipped to convey the resources of heaven to any point of need. God’s anointed Word and His power flow from His presence in us. That’s why any Christian can discover the truth of Hebrews’ assurance (4:12-14) that "the Word of God is alive and full of power . . . penetrating even to where the soul and spirit divide."

Hebrews goes on to say (verse 14) that "Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight." If God's Word is alive and full of power, if it can penetrate into our deepest recesses, and if nothing is hidden from God's sight, we have a complete recipe for deliverance from everything that hangs us up. No tumor, no infection, no sin, corrupt emotion, depressing memory, or any other work of the devil, can escape the healing power of the Word.

We go on the attack

Ephesians 6:16-17 (Amplified) shows us how to put it all together. After instructing us to raise "the shield of saving faith" and put on "the helmet of salvation [deliverance, preservation, health, well-being]," Paul tells us to take up "the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the word of God."

In short, we go on the attack. The Word-sword that the Spirit puts in your hands will cut a tumor out of your body, destroy memories of abuse from your childhood, slice away any demonic influence you’ve been struggling with. And when you’ve pulverized the enemy with the Word, the same power can restore whatever has troubled you: a broken bone, a broken heart, a fractured marriage.

What the Word has done

"Where’s the evidence," as we say in modern times? Well, the Testimonies section of this website offers just a small sampling of what the Word has done through this ministry. Click on the link at the top of this page, and have a look. 

But though the testimonies of healed Christians are inspiring to read, please remember that they’re of secondary value. The important thing is to get to the point where you yourself can speak the anointed Word in faith--boldly, stubbornly, in spite of all contrary appearances and "sophisticated" objections--until the power of God has finished its work.

Don't forget that . . .

God should be our first resort, not our last resort. Start taking time right now to build up the faith you need to receive His healing.

God is ready to heal us in every wayspiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally.

God heals all types of disease, pain, sorrow, and infirmity. Nothing is too hard for Him.

God wants us to be healed, to be "whole" persons enjoying abundant life.

God expects us to cooperate with Him in getting healedthrough medicine, diet, exercise, and straight thinking. Everything that promotes healing is a gift from Him.
