Is healing for today?

Is it possible that healing is for today? Can it really be true that anyone who believes in Jesus Christ can pray for others and see a miracle? I have found God’s Word to be true for us today just as it was for the disciples when it comes to walking in the power of God. 

Jesus said in John 14; 11 – 12 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

Paul said in 1 Cor. 2: 4 – 5 My speech and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

This video is one of my favorites and I have used it over and over to encourage others that any Christian can pray and see God move today.

Restoration

My father was never there for me as I grew up. This gave the enemy an open road to lay down many lies like, I’m all alone, I don’t matter, I have no value etc… I have come to understand that his plan was to bring self-destruction, or at the very least to make me harmless to the kingdom of darkness. Due to the healing of the pain and the lies that were in my life, I now have compassion to help other men be set free from the pain and lies they have experienced. I know that I have a purpose and a future being used by my heavenly Father in restoring the hearts of men. The deep pain I experienced continues to be healed and because of this healing I can now reach out to the men around me and share that Jesus Christ longs to draw us to Him and heal our hearts! I thank God that what the devil intended for evil God has used for good in my life. I too continue to work on my own issues as I venture thru the book studies and boot camps that we offer. This will continue to be a lifelong process for me.


We men at E6Ministries are devoted to helping others find restoration for their hearts through the healing power of Jesus Christ. I love being involved with E6Ministries and the awesome men that I have come to know over these past few years. Very few people find a band of brothers such as ours.

I will never give up fighting for the hearts of men, I am a warrior for good! 

The Power of Prayer

                                               

We recently listened to a message on praying for family members and were encouraged to never give up. There is always hope when we pray for family and friends until the day they depart from this world. We know this first hand in our own lives. After praying for our son for years and not knowing if we would see him come around in our lifetime, the unthinkable happened. He hit rock bottom, turned to God and has begun a new life. His ninety day Hope City rehabilitation program is coming to a close and he is standing strong. This is nothing short of a miracle and we know this has been a result of years of prayers by many.

There were numerous times that we struggled in our faith, not knowing if our son would make it another year, a month or even a few days, but we chose to continue the good fight. It has been a battle but our perseverance has paid off, “FREEDOM” for the one who has been held captive by the enemy of our soul. I want to encourage anyone who has family or friends that are distant or in trouble, pray and make a declaration to the enemy that you will never give up praying for them. God will move on your behalf.

Never Give Up Praying

Our son has struggled with making poor decisions throughout his life. He had been living in Las Vegas for the past three years and was going from job to job. He called us a few months back and shared that he was abusing alcohol and heroin and had been hanging around with some dangerous people. We didn’t hear from him for about a period of three months so we decided to file a missing person’s report with the police department. They suggested that we call the hospitals and the morgue, my wife called the hospitals and I called the morgue. I thank God that he wasn’t there!

To make a long story short, we eventually ended up getting in contact with him. He had been homeless for some time and had reached a place in his life where he was ready and willing for a change. We bought him a bus ticket back to Kansas City, he had no I.D. but by the grace of God, they let him on the bus anyway. A friend had told us to contact the Hope Center, (it’s a Christian recovery center) and that maybe by chance they would be able to help him. I called and they said that someone had recently left the program and that there was an opening. I was told to bring him in the day after he arrived in KC. I did so, he has been there for a few short weeks now and has chosen to serve and walk with God, what a miracle!

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to sharing about my son’s life and all the crazy things he has done. The point I want to get across is “don’t ever give up praying for your loved ones”. We’ve been praying for years for our son who is now thirty-nine years old. We wondered if we would ever see him change in our lifetime, but with God all things are possible. He is on the road of recovery and seems to have made a true heart change.

Simple but profound

I just recently came back from vacation and while driving to work I saw that my engine light was on. I could ignore this, but the damage from doing so could possibly be catastrophic.

The same goes for our emotional well being. I had ignored (my emotional engine light) and pushed down my negative feelings for years and paid the price for this in many ways. I could write a book on this one but will spare you the details. My wife and I have now learned to invite Jesus into the issues of life that confront us.

We just recently faced a situation that was extremely difficult and our stress levels were very high. We talked about our feelings with this situation and then chose to invite Jesus into it. We simply asked Jesus what He wanted us to know and then we quietly waited. My wife saw Jesus sitting next to us at the meeting we were going to attend on the following day. Jesus told her that He had everything under control. I sensed Jesus telling us that He would be there with us and would help us through the situation.

We did experience some stress the following day, but nothing like we would have experienced had we not invited Jesus into this. Thank you, Jesus, for wanting to be a part of everything we do!

Life on Planet Earth

Every once in a while I come across facts that open my understanding just a little more about how great God is and how great His love is towards us, His creation. Our galaxy-sun-earth-moon system had to be precisely fine-tuned for life to exist on this planet. These specifications listed in the link below and explained further in the video link (just the ones we know about) give us an idea of the complexity required for sustaining this life. 
 
We will spend an eternity exploring and learning about our Father’s greatness and then would have only scratched the surface. 
What an awesome God we serve!

“Wait” for God

 One day I happened to do a word search for the word “wait” in the Bible. This reference to “wait” is used numerous times in the Old Testament when referring to “waiting on the Lord.” There are many Christians that still believe we have to wait on God and that He will reveal Himself once we have done our part of waiting. The only reference I could find in the New Testament about waiting (waiting on the Lord) is when the apostles were commanded by Jesus in Acts 1:4 to wait for the baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Jesus changed access to God forever

When Jesus laid down His life for us it changed our access to God forever! He paved the way for continual fellowship with God. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you no longer have to “wait” to have fellowship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

No More Waiting 

Ephesians 2:18 (ESV) – “For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.

 

We are the temple of God – Listen to Him

1 Cor 3:16 (ESV)- “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?”  Since He dwells in me he is always available, I don’t have to wait but I do have to listen and hear so I know Him.  John 10:27 (ESV) – “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”

 

You have a direct line to God through Jesus – Act on it

At E6 Ministries we use this direct line to God by practicing “listening prayer” and you can too. Jesus longs to talk with you. Practice talking to your Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. One good way to do this is by asking questions and then quietly listen for God.

  • Father, what do you think about me?
  • Is there anything I have to do to be loved by You?
  • Jesus, what would you like me to do today?
  • Holy Spirit, what do you want me to know about those people at work that I struggle with?

Healing is for today

Did you know the Greek word for salvation is Sozo.
The definition is: to save, keep safe and sound, to rescue from danger or destruction
  1. one (from injury or peril)
    1. to save a suffering one (from perishing), i.e. one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to healthBy this definition alone, if we have faith for salvation we then have faith to be healed. It is a package deal from our Father. Salvation and “healing” are for today! I have prayed for many people over the past few years and have seen most of them healed. I share this not to brag but to tell you that I’ve learned from God’s word that there is a way to pray that makes a difference. I now understand why my prayers had little effect when it came to healing. I was asking, pleading and sometimes begging for Jesus to heal. All this time He was waiting for me to act on the authority He gave me. I can’t find even one example in the Bible of the disciples asking Jesus, the Father, or the Holy Spirit to heal anyone. They went out in power and authority given to them by God and they commanded those they prayed for to be healed and set free. They didn’t pray for Jesus to heal them for He already did his part on the Cross. Jesus commanded “us” to lay hands on the sick and heal them.I came across this video and found it to be a great example of Christian’s sharing God’s love and powerIt blesses me every time I view it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KnLDsq4XXA

      We at E6 Ministries would love to pray for anyone in need of healing.
