EARTHQUAKES SPEAK FOR GOD? "According
to the historical records, earthquakes greatly escalated in intensity,
frequency and geographical diversity during the 20th century.
Christ gave us a comprehensive, flawless prophecy concerning end-time
phenomena including war, famines, pestilence and "earthquakes in
divers places" in answer to His disciples query "What shall
be the sign of Thy coming and of the end of the world?"
EARTHQUAKES A SIGN OR MESSAGE FROM GOD ALMIGHTY?
SPEAK FOR GOD, and have done so since the beginning of time; a sign as
well as a message from the Almighty to us all! Often, earthquakes
are a WAKE-UP CALL for us to repent and get right with God - a warning of
impending judgment and a call to righteousness!
RECORDS SHOW EARTHQUAKES BECAME MORE FREQUENT AND MUCH MORE INTENSE
DURING THE 20TH CENTURY
FIRST scientifically monitored earthquake occurred at Antioch, Syria on
May 20, 526 AD and took the lives of 250,000 people. There is no record
of its magnitude, but it was certainly great to create so much havoc and
powerful earthquake (9.0) shook Shensi, China on Jan. 24, 1556 claiming
830,000 lives and on Oct. 11, 1739, Calcutta, India was rocked by a
mammoth quake leaving 300,000 dead. Again, we have no record of its
shaker claimed 20% of the population on Nov. 11, 1755 registering 8.6 on
the Richter Scale and was felt many miles away from its epicenter. SIXTY
THOUSAND PEOPLE WERE KILLED!
only 503 died in San Francisco’s April 18-19, 1906 quake, it registered
8.3 on the Richter Scale and much of the city was destroyed with $500
million in damages!
On Sept. 1,
1923 an 8.3 magnitude quake took 200,000 lives in Yokohama, Japan and
another with the magnitude of 8.3 shook Nan Shan, China on May 22, 1927.
On Dec. 26, 1939 the earth shook again with great intensity - 7.9 on
Richter Scale - in Erzincan, Turkey taking 30,000 lives.
1950’s & 1960’s, earthquakes were recorded in India, Turkey,
Afghanistan, Iran, Morocco, Chile, Yugoslavia and Alaska with intensities
as great as 8.7 and as low as 5.8. The Alaska quake occurred on March 27,
1964 and took 131 lives.
On May 31,
1970 an earthquake with the magnitude of 7.7 shook Northern Peru and
claimed 66,796 lives. The Feb. 4, 1976 quake in Guatemala brought great
destruction and death claiming 22,778 lives. It registered 7.5 on the
Richter Scale, and on July 26 of that same year, 242,000 people died in
the 8.2 horrific killer quake that hit Tangahan, China.
Volcanism Network of the Smithsonian Institute has provided us with the

(7.3), California (6.8), Papau New Guinea (7.0), Mexico (7.2), Guam
(8.0), Fiji (6.7) and Japan (7.0).
On June 15,
1999 central and southern Mexico was struck by a 6.7 magnitude earthquake
which killed a number of people and injured hundreds more.
And in August
and September, 1999, three powerful earthquakes hit Turkey (7.4), Greece
(5.9) and Taiwan (7.6). There was great loss of life and property in both
Greece (Sept. 9) and Taiwan (Aug. 17) while the quake in Western Turkey
was responsible for the deaths of upwards to 60,000 people!
And two strong
earthquakes (6.0 and 5.3) hit Greece on May 24 and 26, 2000 but caused
little or no damage or injuries because their epicenters were located
under the seabed, south of Kalamata and northwest of Athens,

Earthquakes Worldwide for 2000–2011
FIRST SCIENTIFICALLY MONITORED EARTHQUAKE
HAPPENED ON MAY 20, 526 AD
In the list of
signs pointing to Jesus Christ’s soon return - given by Jesus Christ
Himself - is earthquakes occurring in many diverse places!
As you can see
by World Almanac statistics which we have included in this article,
EARTHQUAKES are increasing in magnitude, intensity & varied
geographical locations across our troubled world!
For years, all
eyes were on the expected Super Quake which has been predicted to occur
along California’s fault lines. And earthquake watchers are continuing
to keep a close eye on Los Angeles, San Francisco & other cities in
however, has shifted somewhat recently and informed minds are saying that
the next ‘Big One’ could be in Tokyo or another city in Japan!
28, 1974 an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.5 literally shook Northern
Japan - about 95 miles from the nearest city - with very little damage or
loss of life due to its isolated location. In 1994, several strong
tremors - 6.5 to 8.0 on the Richter Scale - occurred in ocean regions
watchers (experts) are fearful that a large earthquake may strike Tokyo
in the near future. If an earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 occurs in
the Tokyo area, because of the geographical structure of the ground,
Tokyo would literally sink, burying millions in the wake of its
On January 17,
1995 an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 struck the Kobe area in
Southern Japan with thousands killed & wounded. News sources stated
that it was the most powerful earthquake to happen during the past 50
Going back to
July 28, 1976, ‘History’s Most Disastrous Earthquake’ struck Tang
Shan, China. The grim facts are that 242,000 died and hundreds of
thousands were injured. According to an Associated Press report, Jan. 17,
1995: a total of 800,000 fatalities (and possibly as many as 1 million)
occurred at the time of the earthquake and as a result of injuries
KIND OF A MESSAGE ARE THESE EARTHQUAKES SENDING US?

of the Air”, and can engineer catastrophic events to bring about his
evil work of death, destruction & confusion - like in the case of
Job’s children being killed by a ‘devil engineered storm’.
however, have been used by the Lord to convey a message to a wicked
society that they must repent & turn around!
HERE ARE SOME
CLASSIC ACCOUNTS OF GOD SPEAKING TO US THROUGH EARTHQUAKES & WHY:
His greatness, power & glory in the earthquake. Man is brought low
when God shakes the earth. God speaks through the earthquake and His
message brings man to his knees!
1 - ON MOUNT SINAI!
Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in
fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the
whole mount quaked greatly.” (Ex. 19:18) Holy BIBLE
“See that ye
refuse not Him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused Him
that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from
Him that speaketh from heaven.” (Heb. 12:25)
shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself
was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.” (Ps. 68:8)
His holy presence on Mt. Sinai through thunder, lightning, a cloud and
the loud voice of the trumpet that continued growing louder as smoke came
from the mount as a great furnace & THE ENTIRE MOUNTAIN QUAKED
GREATLY. Man was brought to his knees & convicted of his wickedness
as God issued His Ten Commandments. God is holy and we must not forget
2 - ON MOUNT CALVARY!
behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the
bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; Now when the
centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the
earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying,
Truly this was the Son of God.” (Matt. 27:51,54)
made the earth tremble & shake at the moment of Jesus’ death on
Golgotha. Three hours of darkness covered the earth just prior to His
death during which time God judged His Son because of our sin. When Jesus
cried, “It is finished”, salvation was complete and the “fountain
was opened” for sin & uncleanness. (Zech. 13:1)
Christ died on Golgotha’s hill for our sins, the veil in the temple was
rent in twain - from the top to the bottom - thus proclaiming that the
death of Jesus had effectively REMOVED THE BARRIER BETWEEN GOD AND MAN.
No more priests or high priests mediating between God and sinner would be
needed. Jesus Christ Himself became the mediator between God and sinning
GOD SENT THE
EARTHQUAKE as a message to sinning mankind that the “Man on the Middle
Cross” was none other than God the Son, Who at that moment was
reconciling the world to Himself through His efficacious and
3 - AT THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST!
“In the end
of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week,
came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher. And, behold,
THERE WAS A GREAT EARTHQUAKE: for the angel of the Lord descended from
heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon
it. His countenance was like lightning, and His raiment white as snow:
And for fear of Him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.”
(Matt. 28:1-4) HOLY BIBLE
When the angel
of the Lord appeared at the tomb of Jesus, the guards who were standing
watch, fell like dead men! God sent an EARTHQUAKE simultaneously, which
made the earth to shake. The guards were overcome by the awesome presence
of God’s messengers. An angel rolled away the stone and sat upon it.
believing women arrived, the angel said, “Fear not for I know you seek
Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell His
disciples that He is risen from the dead...” (Matt. 28:5-7)
declares that Jesus Christ was “declared to be the Son of God with
power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the
dead”. (Rom. 1:4)
God sent His
holy angel with a shattering earthquake to impact the world both
physically and spiritually at the resurrection of Jesus Christ!
4 - AT AN APOSTOLIC PRAYER MEETING!
Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with
all boldness they may speak Thy word, By stretching forth Thine hand to
heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of Thy holy
they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together;
and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of
God with boldness.” (Acts 4:29-31)
Jesus is the
head of the Church and knows how to encourage His people. The disciples
who were forbidden to speak or to teach in His Name, “went to their own
company” of believers and repeated the threats which the chief priests
and elders had made.

the place, demonstrating His all-power!
filled with Holy Spirit power, and instead of being intimidated they were
“bold as lions”!
5 - FREEING PAUL & SILAS FROM PRISON!
midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the
prisoners heard them.
suddenly there was a GREAT EARTHQUAKE, so that the foundations of the
prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every
one’s hands were loosed.
keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison
doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself,
supposing that the prisoners had been fled.” (Acts 16:25-27)
God also knows
how to surprise His people. He used an earthquake to free His servants,
Paul & Silas!
As these men
of God - who had been beaten and chained - began praying & singing
praises to God, suddenly He came onto the scene in mighty power!
shook the prison. The doors were opened and “everyone’s hands were
exhibition of God’s power resulted in the conversion of the jailer and
his family. And Paul & Silas’ release from prison!
6 - AS A SIGN OF COMING OF CHRIST AND END OF AGE!
shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall
be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” (Matt.
“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and
there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines
and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.” (Mark 13:8)
earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and
fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” (Luke
God is showing
His mighty power in this end time age and will continue to do so in even
a more dramatic way than He has in the past.
that EARTHQUAKES would be one of the outstanding signs of His Second
Coming and God’s judgment upon this wicked world.
Some of the
other signs He gave are wars, rumors of wars, famines, pestilences,
backsliding and persecution, as well as mighty revivals across the world!
God alone is
to be exalted! Man must recognize this and come before His All Powerful
Presence in humility, repentance and faith!
7 - OPENING OF SIXTH SEAL!
beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a GREAT
EARTHQUAKE; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon
became as blood.
stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her
untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven
departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and
island were moved out of their places.

captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid
themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
“And said to
the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him
that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great
day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (Rev.
apocalyptic phenomena will accompany the opening of the sixth seal. The
sun will be darkened, the moon will turn to blood, stars will fall from
the heavens, the sky will roll away like a scroll.
There will be
a GREAT EARTHQUAKE and every mountain & island will be moved out of
their places. WHAT A WARNING TO PUNY MANKIND!
God will bear
His mighty arm and His great wrath will be poured out upon Christ
rejecters and God haters, during the awful ‘Great Tribulation’

is filled with fire from off the holy altar of God and cast it upon the

slain - will rise from the dead and ascend up to Heaven in a cloud!

tenth of the city will be destroyed and 7000 men will die. God is the
great judge and recompenses just judgment for iniquity!
10 - THE GREAT EARTHQUAKE AT SEVENTH SEAL!

voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, IT IS DONE.
And there were voices, and thunders, and lightning's; and there was a
great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so
mighty an earthquake, and so great.

men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent:
and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague
thereof was exceeding great.” (Rev. 16:17-21)

UTTERLY DESTROYED, EVERY ISLAND WILL VANISH, THE MOUNTAINS WILL DISAPPEAR
AND GREAT HAILSTONES WILL FALL FROM HEAVEN, AS GOD POURS OUT HIS WRATH!

pointing to His nearness. This corrupt, immoral, perverted, unjust &
evil world will one day receive her just rewards!

God’s Word is flawless and prophecy is being fulfilled to the letter!
JESUS IS COMING SOON!
It behooves us
all to make doubly sure that we have our “wedding garments on” and
that we are ready for the “Marriage Supper of the Lamb”!
You may ask as
did the Philippian jailer, “ What must I do to be saved?”
answer is their answer: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (as your
personal Savior) and thou shall be saved”. (Acts 16:31).
May the Lord Bless you,

THERE IS HOPE
FOR YOU - THERE IS HEALING FOR YOU - GOD WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYERS

They have frequented doctors, clinics and hospitals with little or no
help - and are discouraged, angry and bitter!
prayed earnestly regarding their healing, had special prayer in their
church by the pastor and elders or by an evangelist whom God uses to
bring healing to the sick through faith in Jesus Christ - and still are
not healed! Many become discouraged thinking that God is not
listening to their prayers or that they are not important enough for him
to give them answers to their prayers.
someone reading this booklet fits one of these categories. After your
hospital visit or prayer service, you are “not better”. You may even
be getting worse! Your faith is at a low ebb and you’re tired of being
tired, sick and defeated. You are tired of hoping and believing without
any answers to your prayers.
You feel like
throwing up your hands in despair since nothing helps, and accept
weakness, pain, sickness and distress as your lot in life!
FRIEND, THERE IS STILL HOPE FOR YOU. It is not too late. It may
seem hopeless, but it is not. It may seem useless to think of
deliverance, but it is not. So long as you are alive and there is a God
in Heaven, there is hope!
says, “With men this is impossible, but not with God, for with God all
things are possible”. (Mark 10:27) It may seem impossible to you but
with God NOTHING is impossible.
extremity becomes God’s opportunity. And when man fails, that’s when
God can take over, for He never fails. When man “gives up on you”,
God is ready, willing and able to step in and bring to pass a miracle in
your life, because nothing is impossible with Him!
GOD CAN &
WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYER! When God could bring the world into being
by His spoken Word, hang the universe on nothing, fling the sun, moon and
stars into the far most corner of the night to rotate in perfect harmony,
HE CAN ANSWER YOUR PRAYER. You must be patient and continue to pray
and seek God, as he will answer your prayers when he feels the time is

TOUCH OF HIS HAND, GOD CREATED A PERFECT HUMAN BEING IN HIS OWN IMAGE AND
BREATHED INTO MAN’S NOSTRILS THE BREATH OF LIFE MAKING HIM A LIVING
SOUL, SURELY HE CAN HEAL YOUR SICK SPIRIT, SOUL (MIND) AND BODY. HE
HAS PROMISED HEALING, GOD HAS PROMISED ANSWERS TO YOUR PRAYERS.
The Great God
Who brought back to life the Lord Jesus Christ, can certainly quicken
your mortal body. When you think of how great and mighty our God is,
certainly nothing could be impossible to Him!
declares: "But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the
dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also
quicken - make life in - your mortal (temporal, dying) bodies by His
Spirit that dwelleth in you". (Romans 8:11)
Is God able to
heal our weak, aging, temporal bodies? Yes, He is able to and He does!
Is God able to answer your prayers. Yes - He is willing to answer
your prayers. The Bible says, “All things are possible to him
that believeth”. (Mark 9:23) Since He (the Holy Spirit) brought
Jesus Christ back from the dead, He can most certainly heal our diseased
and dying bodies, says St. Paul.
In verse 26,
the great apostle continues, "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our
infirmities (lit. greek - takes a hold of against our sicknesses): for we
know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself
(Himself) maketh intercession for us (lit. greek - and together with us)
with groanings (Holy Spirit prayer - praying in tongues) which cannot be
Blessed Holy Spirit Who raised Jesus Christ from the dead dwells within
us and "takes a hold of against our sickness" and “together
with us” prays to our Heavenly Father for our healing and deliverance!
THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM THAT BELIEVETH"
says, “All things are possible to him that believeth”. (Mark 9:23)
The first truth we have established is that your case is not too
difficult for God and there is a good possibility of your healing to take
place We have also established that God is able and willing to heal
you - to answer your prayers!
STATES THAT JESUS CAME TO BRING LIFE!
cometh not but for to steal and to kill and destroy, but I am come that
they might have life and have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)
that the devil came for only three reasons; to steal, kill and destroy!
But Jesus came to bring life! The devil is a thief and a murderer (John
8:44) and came only to do evil (steal, kill and destroy). He came
to rob you of your happiness, joy, peace, health and blessing. He came to
harm you and finally destroy you in a hospital, insane asylum or prison.
The devil is
cruel, perverted, evil, wicked and ungodly. He can only do evil. He has
no capability to do good. The devil is the death giver!
JESUS IS 100%
GOOD! He came to bring life. He came to bring blessings to all who would
believe. HE CAME TO BRING ABUNDANT LIFE BECAUSE HE IS THE LIFE GIVER!
Some people have given the devil the credit for healing sick people -
this is blasphemous and utterly false. It is contrary to God’s Word and
accuses Jesus of telling an untruth.
We know that
Jesus is the truth, the life and the way (John 14:6). The Word of God is
pure, divine and infallible!
THAT YOU CANNOT GET GOOD FRUIT FROM A CORRUPT TREE OR CORRUPT FRUIT FROM
A GOOD TREE. By their fruits we shall know them! Jesus said a corrupt
tree “bringeth not forth good fruit”. (Matthew 7:18) It is against
the law of a thorn tree to bring forth figs - you can’t get sweet water
out of a fountain that is bitter.
HOW COULD THE
DEVIL, WHO IS COMPLETELY EVIL, BRING FORTH SOMETHING THAT IS GOOD?
the devil a thief who came only to steal, kill and destroy. He came to
this earth for no other purpose! Jesus came to bring life! Healing and
health is life! Sickness and disease brings death! The Bible classifies
'healing' as 'doing good'!
anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power, Who went
about doing good, healing all who were oppressed of the devil.” (Acts
The message is
plain and simple: The devil made people sick but Jesus made them well.
Sickness comes from satanic sources and divine healing has its origin in
God! The literal Greek states that Jesus Christ healed all those
who "were under the dominion, authority or lordship of Satan".
That is God's Word - Believe it and be healed;
IT MAY APPEAR
THAT WITCH DOCTORS AND OCCULTS MAY HEAL OR CURE BUT BE NOT DECEIVED
Oh I know
there are times that it appears witch doctors and other occultists may
have affected cures by their incantations. Do not be deceived.
Satan is a deceiver and manipulator. In the end, his involvement
always brings enslavement, torment & death.
(witch doctors and soothsayers) of Egypt could duplicate many of the
miracles performed by Moses in the sight of Pharaoh (king) of Egypt.
There were two things they could not do, however.
#1 - They could not get rid of the plagues even though they could
duplicate Moses in bringing forth the flies and frogs. Moses had to be
called to get rid of the plagues: eg. darkness, flies, frogs, lice,
locusts. Interpretation: Satan can bring the cancer but he has no power
to heal the person from the death-dealing work of the disease which he
has brought. God is the only healer and restorer!
#2 - When it comes to creating life, the magicians could not create lice
out of dust as Moses did in the Name of the Lord.
said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God”. (Exodus 8:19) Here is the
interpretation: Satan is a deceiver and trickster but he has no power to
do good, heal, save or create life! All he can do is deceive, lie, steal
and kill! Only God can heal and create life and sustain it!
There are some
things you must do if you are to be healed. Study the accounts of sick
folk - in the Bible - who were healed, and if you do what they did, you
will certainly receive healing, because Jesus Christ is no respector of
No. 1 - WORSHIP JESUS CHRIST!
There is only
ONE HEALER, Jesus Christ. He alone is the Great Physician. Seek Him and
worship Him, and turn from every known sin. Seek the Healer and not the
attention on Jesus. Worship, praise and magnify His Name and His love,
forgiveness and healing will automatically flow into you!
behold, there came a leper and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, if Thou
wilt, Thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth His hand, and touched
him, saying, I will, be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was
cleansed”. (Matthew 8:2-3)
SEEK ONLY A HEALING OR MIRACLE OR ANSWERS TO PRAYER WITHOUT
WORSHIPPING GOD - WILL BE GREATLY DISAPPOINTED
By seeking God
through Jesus Christ, you will establish a vital contact with the Great
Physician and receive your miracle and answers to your prayers.
People who seek only a healing or a miracle or answers to prayers without
worshipping God, will be greatly disappointed.
REMEMBER, KNOWING GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST AND THE BLESSED HOLY SPIRIT -
WITHOUT BEING HEALED PHYSICALLY - IS FAR MORE ADVANTAGEOUS THAN GETTING
ONLY A PHYSICAL MIRACLE WITHOUT RECEIVING JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOUR AND
Jarius was in
a desperate situation. His daughter was at the point of death when he
decided to seek out the Master. Here is the Bible account.
While He spake
these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and
worshipped Him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay
Thy hand upon her, and she shall live. And Jesus arose, and followed him,
and so did His disciples.
behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years,
came behind Him, and touched the hem of His garment: For she said within
herself, If I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus
turned Him about, and when He saw her, He said, Daughter, be of good
comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole
from that hour.
Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels and the people
making a noise, He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead,
but sleepeth. And they laughed Him to scorn. But when the people were put
forth, He went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.”
WOMAN WORSHIPS JESUS!
behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto
Him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is
grievously vexed with a devil. But He answered her not a word. And His
disciples came and besought Him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth
after us. But He answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep
of the house of Israel. “Then came she and worshipped Him, saying,
Lord, help me.
answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to
cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the
crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and
said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou
wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.” (Matt.
states, “And as they went to tell His disciples. behold, Jesus met
them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and
worshipped Him”. (Matt. 28:9)
THE PRAYERS AND ANSWERS THE PRAYERS OF THOSE WHO WORSHIP HIM
God hears your prayers and God answers the prayers of those who worship
Him. And all who are saved and healed by God’s power WILL desire to
The blind man
whom Jesus healed is a good example of that fact: “Jesus heard that
they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said unto him, Dost

that I might believe on Him? And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen

true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the
Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that
worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth”. (John 4:23-24)
No. 2 - HUMBLE YOURSELF!
Pride is a
gigantic hindrance to receiving divine healing! “But He answered and
said it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to
said, truth, Lord, yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their
master’s table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great
is thy faith, be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was
made whole from that very hour.” (Matthew 15:26-28)
Here is the
account of a Canaanite woman humbling herself in the sight of God. When
she did, Jesus granted her request! Her daughter was healed!

believe that they will receive something from God because of WHO THEY ARE
OR THINK THEY ARE! We do not receive healing because we are worthy, but
because we are needy. And Jesus Christ met that need nearly 2000 years
ago on the cross!
HEALING FROM GOD BECAUSE OF HIS GRACE AND MERCY AND BECAUSE OF HIS WORD -
NOT BECAUSE WE DESERVE IT - HEALING IS A GIFT
It is only
because of His great liberality to us by sending His Son Jesus Christ, to
die in our place and purchase our salvation, that we receive forgiveness
and divine healing from His gracious and loving land!
We must never
forget that forgiveness, divine healing, the gifts and graces of God
which He bestows upon us are simply that - gifts of God’s mercy to us!
No. 3 - BELIEVE IN GOD’S INTEGRITY, ABILITY AND WILLINGNESS
KEEP HIS PROMISES TO US
God’s Word is absolutely true and that it will never pass away! The
Heavens and the Earth will pass away, but God’s Word will stand
forever. (Matthew 24:35) God’s Word is as pure and divine as God
Himself (John 1:1-4).
SCRIPTURES ARE GOD’S WORD!
The Lord God
Almighty is “back of” His Word, and it will never fail (1 Kings
8:56). God has placed “His Word” above “His Name” (Psalm 138:2).
His Word has gone out of His mouth in righteousness and will not return
“So shall My
word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me
void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper
in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11)
perform every Word He has spoken. “Then said the Lord unto me, Thou
hast well seen: for I will hasten My word to perform it.” (Jeremiah
1:12) “So shall My word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall
not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and
it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11)
Believe that God’s Word is the final authority and that IT IS GOOD
TODAY! Then, appropriate His Word to yourself, for your own
said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me
to preach the gospel to the poor, He hath sent me to heal the
brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of
sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach
the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18-20)
Bible says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word
of God.” (Romans 10:17) Jesus asked two blind men, “Believest
thou that I am able to do this (heal them)?” They answered, “Yea,
touched their eyes saying, “According to your faith be it unto you”,
and they were instantly healed!
“If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that
believeth”. (Mark 9:23)
that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the
very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on
Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these
shall he do; because I go unto My Father.
whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may
be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do
it.” (John 14:11-14)
No. 4 - TAKE GOD AT HIS WORD!
says, “...if thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy
God, and wilt do that which is right in His sight, and wilt give ear to
His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of these
diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians, for I am the
Lord that healeth thee.” (Exodus 15:26)
promised: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh
receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall
be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)
even was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with
devils: and He cast out the spirits with His word, and HEALED ALL THAT
WERE SICK: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the
prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our
sicknesses.” (Matthew 8:16-17)
years before His birth in Bethlehem, the Holy Spirit promised divine
healing through the Coming Messiah!
“But He was
wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the
chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are
healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)
Here is the
beginning of the fulfillment of that prophecy: “Who His own self bare
our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should
live unto righteousness: by Whose stripes ye were healed.” (1 Peter
three very important spiritual laws which Jesus Christ gave His Church:
The Law of Binding & Loosing
The Law of Agreement
The Law of God’s Presence
laws, when acted upon in faith, bring divine healing and total
deliverance to those who call upon the Lord in sincerity and trust!
say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven:
and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
“Again I say
unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing
that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in

them.” (Matthew 18:18-20)

Law of Agreement is contained in Matthew18:19.
Law of God’s Presence is written in Matthew 18:20.

OF THESE DISEASES
of the most helpful books in print today is the classic, 'None of These

failure as he remembers the thousands of patients who left his office
with "nothing but a prescription for a bottle of pills that would
only relieve the symptoms of their illness but not attack the diseases.
good doctor laments that he now wishes he had rather prescribed his book,
'None of These Diseases', so that a permanent cure could have been
affected! According to Medical Science, between 60 and 100% of all
diseases are caused by nervous tension, emotional stress and strain.
McMillan states that emotions such as fear, sorrow, envy, resentment and
hatred are responsible for the majority of our sicknesses and diseases.
And that emotional stress can cause high blood pressure, toxic goiter,
arthritis, migraine headaches, apoplexy, heart trouble, gastro-intestinal
ulcers and other serious illnesses and diseases.
recently (about 1996) the American Medical Association released the
findings of a nation-wide survey of tens of thousands of their medics.
One of the questions dealt with their success ratio in treating patients.
The answer is shocking - Only 10% of patients had received any lasting
help through their medical procedures.

Some physicians thought the cause of the disease Leprosy was eating hot

Leprosy on malign conjunction of the planets.
60 million people died from the BLACK DEATH disease in the 14th century.
Dr. George Rosen of Columbia University writes: "Leadership was

Church took as its guiding principal the concept of contagion as embodied
in the Old Testament.

governmental and medical bodes are again "doing nothing".
centuries in Europe, multitudes perished from deadly diseases because of
