PODCAST MISSION STATEMENT:
Jesus healed the separation between God and man through his work FOR US, and therefore ended Satan’s dominion over ALL who would trust in Christ! "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might DESTROY the works of the devil." [1 John 3:8]
Jesus "carried" sickness, sin, disease, poverty, and oppression - the works of the devil (Satan) - FOR YOU. Now you don’t have to carry them any longer. They do NOT belong to the believer in Christ!
WHAT JESUS DID FOR YOU … YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO!
Now that you know that physical and mental healing belong to the believer in Christ - as much as spiritual healing - you need to know how to obtain it: HOW TO BE HEALED! There are several ways, or avenues, to obtain AND to minister Christ’s healing power. They are listed below:
In the last podcast we discussed how to be healed by the Word of G-d.
In this podcast I am going to teach you how to be healed by the laying on of hands.
LAYING ON OF HANDS
After Jesus Christ was raised from the dead and before he went back to Heaven, he said:
"And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues … they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." (Mark 16:17-18)
Notice three things Jesus told us:
"In my name …"
"you shall lay hands on the sick,"
"they (the sick) shall recover."
IN MY NAME - It is the name of Jesus the Messiah, (the Holy One of God) which is to accompany the laying on of hands. It is THE NAME that is above every name [Philippians 2:8-9]. The NAME of Jesus Christ joins God’s power to your action.
The name of Jesus identifies you: it tells "sickness" and "demons" the authority behind your action and command; it tells them you belong to and are a believer in Jesus, the One who conquered them and their master, Satan! The name of Jesus identifies you with the One who CREATED the world and who BOUGHT IT BACK (after Adam’s sin) with his own blood!
Use the name of Jesus with authority: as a citizen of Messiah’s Kingdom. If you are in doubt, just whisper the name of Jesus for a while. "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus …." It will call God’s power to the scene! If it is a case of demon affliction, speak with authority (not your authority, but Christ’s) and say: "You devil, come out! I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of this person!"
YOU SHALL LAY HANDS ON THE SICK - If you are a believer in Jesus, then God wants to use you to heal others. You have the privilege, as well as the responsibility, of laying hands on the sick and praying for them: whether they are Christians or non-Christians. (See Luke 4:40; Acts 28:8.)
Your hands become Christ’s hands: his tool! The power of the Holy Spirit flows through your hands. You may not see it, you may not feel it … but it is POWER just the same. The devil is afraid of your touch! Because of distance, sometimes, you are not able to lay hands on the sick person. (The person you want to pray for may be in a different city.) You can then send them a "prayer cloth" to be laid on the body of the sick person.
"And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: so that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them." [Acts 19:11-12]
Prayer cloths are very effective! Demons (evil spirits) are cast out, sick bodies are healed, minds are restored. Pray over the cloth (lay your hands on it) in the name of Jesus Christ and ask God to send deliverance, healing, and blessing.

If you are a Christian, you have more POWER than the devil ever hoped to have! Satan is afraid of your handkerchief!!
THEY SHALL RECOVER - Forget what your mind or eyes tell you. Believe what God says. You may not see the person you pray for be healed as soon as you think you should … however, you may see them be healed instantly. The important thing is to KNOW that they will recover. (Note: In some cases the sick person may be hindering their own healing; such cases will be covered later in this book under the section: "Prayer and Proper Mental Attitude".)
The Holy Spirit is God’s agent on earth to supply the healing power of Christ. Whether the sick person is healed instantly or over a period of time - whether they feel God’s power or not - Jesus promised, "These signs shall follow them that believe … they shall lay hands on the sick, and they [the sick] shall recover." Your job is to serve by faith in obedience to Christ’s command: "You go … they shall recover." Read again Mark 16:15-18 and notice the command and the promise!
