Laying on Hands

When someone gets sick they are to have hands laid on them. Why?

Well, what made them sick caused them to be seperated from God and lose their faith. It’s the elders of the church imparting because they are the strongest in faith for miracles or they wouldn’t have been chosen to be an elder.

James 5:14-16

14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

In this scripture passage I’m seeing that it’s not a condition for the person sick to have enough faith to be healed it’s the elders imparting what they have. It’s also showing there’s a need to repent of our sins. Sin damages our souls the Holy Spirit comes through the elder to repair the broken hearts from the sin seperating us.

Sickness isn’t always into death. And it doesn’t have to be. When we repent it’s our savior causing us to remove anything seperating us from his love.

This is laying hands

See it’s laying hands not two fingers or a hand. It’s laying on hands. Laying on two fingers I believe is coming from
Hindu practice. They pray for healing too but are not praying to the same God. They touch the temple of the head to impart. Or lay two fingers touching the body.

While the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and laying His hands on each one of them, He was healing them.

In this scripture passage Jesus laid hands on each one of them.

Saul got his sight by hands being laid on him.

Acts 13:9

9 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him.

2 Timothy 1:6

6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.

Now this scripture makes so much sense how fear comes out by laying hands. 2 Timothy 1:7 says God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear. No coinsidence it comes after hands were imparting the Holy Spirit.

Binding and Loosing

Information I compiled to help you pray:

Matthew 16:19 “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

There are so many people that are still walking around searching for the “keys of the kingdom of heaven” when God already gave it to us in this scripture. It is following the semi-colon “whatever YOU bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever YOU loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Yes, it is so subtle but so true. The authority has been given to the believer in Christ Jesus to bind and loose. This is the key.

You bind and You Loose. You have this power so God has already given you the ability to take action and all you have to do is use it.

So what does binding mean? The Greek word is deo (Stong’s concordance G1210)

definition of binding

So when you bind something you are forbidding it, prohibiting it from happening and putting it in chains.

How do we define loosing? The Greek is Lyo (Strongs 3089)

define loosing

So, loosing is the opposite action. You are untying something loosening it. You are setting it free.

Now we will show you how to use this in prayer.

Imagine that you see something happening around you and you know it’s not right, it’s not godly, it’s demonic, it’s an injustice, it is a complete violation of the word of God (this is not your opinion or your feelings). Once you identify that this is not the will of God you have the authority to bind it up and to loose the Kingdom and all of it’s righteousness in place of that!
So your prayer would sound like this “I bind up pride in the name of Jesus and I loose humility” So you would loose the opposite of what you are binding up. You could even pray this over yourself in whatever area you see that you may need it.

“I bind up fear and I loose the perfected love of Christ” this would be based on the scripture (1 John 4:18) “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”

When you bind up something you think of the opposite to loose over the situation.

The prayer of binding and loosing is very effective if you use it as an offensive prayer. Don’t wait until you get into a situation or things get tense before you do this. If you know that you are about to face a confrontation or a bad situation you start binding and loosing before you even get to the scene. This will ensure that things are in order before you show up and God has already sent his angels to take care of it before you arrive.

Here is a general binding and loosing prayer:

Jesus, according to Matthew 16:19 you said that you gave us the keys to the Kingdom and whatsoever I bind on earth is bound in heaven; therefore, I bind the enemy and every angel that was kicked out of heaven from interfering with Your blessings coming into my life. I bind every principality, every power, every might and dominion, every ruler of darkness and every spirit in high places from interfering in my life, my family, my health, my finances, my ministry, my business, my relationships with others and more importantly with you Lord. They will not be able to operate in any aspect of my life or have any influence over it, in Your Holy Name and according to your word Amen.

Lord Jesus, You also said that whatsoever I loose on earth will be loosed in heaven; therefore, I ask that you give the angels of heaven charge over me, according to Psalm 91. I ask that you loose the angels to hearken the Word of God on my behalf. Loose Your blessings and favor over my life, my family, my health, my finances, my ministry, my business, my relationships in Your Holy Name, Amen

Now remember that you can make this prayer as specific as you need it to be for your situation. If you are not sure of what you should loose for what you are binding up leave us a comment below and we’ll be happy to give you some suggestions.

**Please note, that this binding and loosing is not a permanent prayer. What does that mean? You may need to do this all again tomorrow. The main reason is sin and it is the enemy’s job to get you in a sinful situation so that you lose the authority to stop him in his tracks. You can read more about this here in a post on Spiritual Warfare. Under the beginner and intermediate stages it explains why some prayers get undone because of sin.

Until then, God bless you and remember you have the power and authority to do this because it was given to you by Jesus himself.

Watch Your Mouth

Proverbs 18:7

7 A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.

Have you ever said something and it came to pass or spoke about a situation and it only got worse?

Our mouths can get us in trouble. The less said the better.

Have you ever said anything you regretted to someone? You can’t take those words back.

Words have power give them careful consideration.

Start taking thoughts captive

2 Corinthians 10:5

5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Bad thoughts can produce bad words.

Take words captive. Hold your tongue as much as you can.

Ever Wonder Why God Isn’t Hearing Your Prayers?

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

You can’t go to the Father in prayer without connecting to Yeshua(Jesus).

One of the titles of Jesus was the Word of God. In John’s gospel we read.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1).

John also wrote.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth (John 1:14).

In the Book of Revelation it says.

He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God (Revelation 19:13).

This Term Is Not Defined

Although there is no explanation given in Scripture as to why Jesus is called the Word of God there have been several suggested reasons.

It May Refer To Wisdom Personified

It has been argued that Jesus is the personification of wisdom as is described in Proverbs 5-8. This section begins by saying.

My son, pay attention to my wisdom, listen well to my words of insight (Proverbs 5:1).

The Word Is God’s Communication To Humanity

It is possible that the term “word” is used the same manner as does the Old Testament – the communication of God to humanity. This is exactly what Jesus did – He revealed to the world the Word of God. Jesus was the personification of the written and spoken Word. In the Old Testament God revealed His word through the prophets while in the New Testament the word of God was revealed in a Person – God the Son.

Summary

Jesus is called, “the Word of God.” Although Scripture does not define what is meant by that term it could refer to the fact that He is the personification of the written and spoken word. The testimony that God revealed through the prophets during the Old Testament period was now made human with the coming of Christ. Hence the Word became flesh.

Are We Carnal and Bewitched?

Galatians 3:1
O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?

I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard a Christian radio host talking about his son watching videos of strangers opening pokemon cards. He said his son had watched for three hours at a time.

Many years ago I saw a glimpse of pokemon and it looked so demonic I would have stayed away for that alone. But I researched and found out there were many demonic powers this little yellow creature possessed. One of those was psyshic.

Why would anyone Christian touch anything demonic like that?

I’ve seen in several Christian homes objects of occult and new age. Are people perishing for lack of knowledge?

A Pastor wasn’t aware of the dangers of acupuncture telling a woman it was ok as long as she didn’t fully connect with it. I wasn’t sure what he meant but I wonder if he knew how dangerous it was if he would have changed his stance?

We are to be innocent of evil but could they be opening themselves up to evil without knowing it?

Maybe the body of Christ isn’t aware of the dangers of being unified with the world? King Solomon was very wise but yet he took on false gods. All occult is from false religions. They all are practices that should be avoided at all costs. God will have no other gods before him. And the main reason is all false religions have satan behind them being worshiped. Not a good thing at all. Wouldn’t you agree?

Then why aren’t they seeing it?

1 Corinthians 3

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your’s;

22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your’s;

23 And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.

Could they be so innocent but yet so deceived?

How does that bewitchment come into a believer is it things they’ve never left? Or are these things they’ve pick up from the secularism carnal nature we all have.

There needs to be more teaching on concegreted sanctified lifestyles I presume.

🤔Hmmmm

Out of Your Belly Shall Flow Living Waters. What’s in your gut?

Connecting your gut to your spiritual walk with God seems to be hooky, but this scripture makes it clear there’s a connection : John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water

I’ve experienced my most intimate times with the Lord during a fast. My thoughts were very clear. It was almost as if there was nothing blocking my belly for his living waters to flow through.

We’ve all had times after eating something great discomfort in our tummy. Is that a warning don’t eat that again? There have been sleepness night with an upset tummy. Was what I put in bad for me spiritually too?

The Bible is called bread of life. Bread is a natural substance used as food. The analogy of being fed by the Bible is strongly significant here. I remember as a young Christian having so much anxiety not knowing what to do. Then one day the Lord convicted me I was running out the door with no fuel. I didn’t eat breakfast so I’d burn out really early in the day because my body had no fuel. And I wasn’t meditating on the word of God to feed my spirit man so I’d be burnt out spiritually too. So after I got this revelation from God I would feed my spirit and my body before even starting the day. If ever I felt a little anxious I’d sit down open my Bible and partake in the spiritual food that gave me peace. It gave me clarity too. I had times where I had so much responsibility and didn’t know what to start. After sitting down with the word I had clear direction. Start the laundry first then put away the clean dishes make my phone calls. Order was being established in my life.

There are so many connections in the Bible with food besides it being called the bread of life. Taking communion is using a physical representation of bread being the body of Christ and wine being his blood. Taking it in remembrance not only reminds of us his sacrifice but the antioxidants in the wine to clean the blood the bread to not do it on an empty stomach.

There are references if a brother be weak in his flesh with infirmity and eat just vegetables we should not judge him.
Romans 14 3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

There’s wisdom in abstaining from food if you are dealing with any type of infirmity. Giving the gut a break from food gives you time to get your gut back in order without putting digestive stress on it. When you abstain from food it allows the gut time to heal. Then it processes better.

When you do a cleanse you clean out anything that might be blocking you spiritually too.

Just some food for thought for you.

Ya Can’t Live Like The Devil And End Up In Heaven When you Die

How can I say such a thing? Well, it’s my testimony I was claiming to be a Christian and had no idea I was living like the devil going to hell. A Roman Catholic girl raised with a strict Italian upbringing. They told us to not have sex before marriage but never the reason why. We were taught out don’t say curse words. Well my Grandad told me Christina you have a better vocabulary than that. He never referenced the Bible in Collosians where it says don’t do that. So I was given a lot of rules without understanding consequences of sinning. Don’t do this don’t do that never the reason why.

I fell into sins that any Christian could have without reading the Bible. Well, at least I thought I was a Christian but after reading the Bible I found out I was certainly not. The word Christian means Christ like. Christ would ever do things as doing for sure. People attending church weekly could be living like the devil too. It doesn’t save you saying you’re a Christian you have to act like one too. To act like one you must know what one is.

The Bible was created for us to eat like bread daily. The scripture give us this day our daily bread. We are to chew on that word daily like a piece of bread, one bite at a time. When it’s eaten it gets into our system it’s digested and used for energy just like food.You’ll be full the more you eat. We feed our bodies but forget to feed our spirit, most of the time. Our souls starve without the living word. Eventualy without it you could starve and die a second death without it. The first is your body the second is your soul dying.

2 Timothy 3:6 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

These words feed our spirit and soul truth. Without correction your Spirit dies. The opposite of truth is lies. Truth brings good fruit and life. Lies produce fruit rotten fruit and death.

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Without being in the word with correction you’ll end up living a life of sin.

It wasn’t until after I started reading the Bible that I started to understand the error if my ways.

Continual sin brings death to your soul. Christ died so we could have eternal life. In his death he lⁿp upeft us the Holy Spirit to fill us when we have communion in the word and in spending time with God in prayer or worship.

I called myself a Christian without reading the Bible to know what a Christian was. It’s not what we call it because we claim it we are. It’s what we live. The word Christian means Christ like. How could anyone be like Christ without even knowing him?
Isaiah 53:6
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Sin glorifies the devil because he is the father of all lies.When you aren’t corrected you live in deception being deceived. You become blinded to truth. You’ve all heard the song Amazing Grace? If not look up the lyrics. I was blind but now I see.

Amazing Grace

Don’t claim to be a Christian be one! The devil doesn’t need any more followers by default. Live righteous for righteousness sake. Because if you live like the devil, you’ll surely go to hell with the devil. He hates God’s creation and wants for all to live like him without God. If he can get you to follow a doctrine other then one that’s holy, he’ll grab a hold of you.

Romans 6:16

“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”

This sin unto death like I said is not only physical but spiritual. We are made with three parts. Body soul and spirit. If your soul choses to live in flesh and not the spirit your spirit will die. What do you see in a casket? A dead body without it’s spirit and a dead soul.

We are born in the flesh the spirit does not reside in us until we choose him to. The Holy Spirit will indwell in you only when your will is to have him in your life and body.

James 4:4-10

4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

So examine yourself 2 Corthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Heaven is where you want to be for an eternity I assure you.
