By Rev. Margaret Aranda, MD, Ph.D.
Closing Prayer & Song: Kirstie Whitehand

Car accident to near-death-experience, to given up for dead, to trying to be put in a nursing home, to persevering and arguing her way back to life. 
ALL WITH THE HELP OF GOD.

WELCOME! It is so wonderful to have you join us today! We continue with our study of last Sunday, asking if the same “Healing” of the Old Testament & of Christ’s Day, still is here on earth for us to take in faith today.

Stop song at end, please.


TODAY, WE FOCUS ON JESUS AS MY HEALER!
Did you see how Jesus healed the bilnd? How he cured the sick? We know the Bible says he rose Lazarus from the dead, and the woman who touched his garment was cured of her “bleeding problem” as Christ felt His Healing Power leave His body. Let us learn who we are in Christ, what Christ did for us, and let us rejoice in it!

First, let us describe who Christ was and is for us. What He did, how He was treated, and who He did it for:

QUESTION: Does Jesus still Heal the Sick? Or was this a ‘thing’ that only during Christ’s time? Or are HEALING and miracles a ‘thing’ that only happens to other people, & not YOU?

QUESTION: Does Jesus still Heal the Sick? Or was this a ‘thing’ that only happened during Christ’s time? Or are HEALING and miracles a ‘thing’ that only happens to other people, and not YOU?

SCRIPTURES:
1. And Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; it shall be done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed that very moment.“~ Matthew 8:13

This was a centurion who was used to giving Orders and having them followed. Christ marveled at his faith, for Christ only had to SAY THE WORDS to heal the centurion’s servant. There was NO laying of hands here.

2. Peter’s Mother-in-law and Many Others Healed ] When Jesus came into Peter’s home, He saw his mother-in-law lying sick in bed with a fever.” Matthew 8:14


QUESTION: Many others were healed, here, not just Peter’s Mother-in-Law, and every time, it was because people sent for Jesus. What is it about the name of Jesus, or the Person of Jesus that would cause a person to be healed?

****I am The God That Healeth Thee****
By Don Moen


1. [ A Paralytic Healed ] “Getting into a boat, Jesus crossed over the sea and came to His own city.” Matthew 9:1

2. “The signs of a true apostle were performed among you with all perseverance, by signs and wonders and miracles.” 2 Corinthians 12:12


QUESTION: Do you think that it was a “big thing” for the people to see that Jesus healed a paralytic? It had never been done before.

1. Not only were miracles used in the Old Testament (Exodus 3:20; Exodus 34:10; Judges 6:13; Psalm 78:11; Psalm 105-27; Micah 7:15), but as the Lord walked the earth, miracles by HEALING were used as a primary means of showing proof to the multitudes that He was the Christ, the Son of God.

2. HEALING: “He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” PSALM 107:20

3. HEALING:For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,” says the Lord. Jeremiah 30:17

4. HEALING: But Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. Many followed Him, and He healed them all,” Matthew 12:15

5. HEALING: The Pharisees Rebuked ] “Then a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute was brought to Jesus, and He healed him, so that the mute man spoke and saw.” Matthew 12:22

6. HEALING: “Then Jesus said to her, “O woman, your faith is great; it shall be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed at once.” Matthew 15:28

7. HEALING:While he was still approaching, the demon slammed him to the ground and threw him into a convulsion. But Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the boy and gave him back to his father.” Luke 9:42

8. HEALING: “But the synagogue official, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, began saying to the crowd in response, “There are six days in which work should be done; so come during them and get healed, and not on the Sabbath day.” Luke 13:14

9. HEALING: “But Jesus answered and said, “Stop! No more of this.” And He touched his ear and healed him.” Luke 22:51

10. HEALING: “But the man who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had slipped away while there was a crowd in that place.” John 5:13

11. HEALING: But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5: The FULL CHAPTER

QUESTION: Did you know that Christ bore our sins and our transgressions by the whipping that He received before His crucifixion? Have you heard the Bible verse, “By His stripes, we were healed?” This is based on the following:

1. STRIPES: “...then it shall be if the wicked man deserves to be beaten, the judge shall then make him lie down and be beaten in his presence with the number of stripes according to his guilt.” Deuteronomy 25:2

2. STRIPES: He may beat him forty times but no more, so that he does not beat him with many more stripes than these and your brother is not degraded in your eyes.” Deuteronomy 25:3

3. STRIPES: “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: Full CHAPTER, KJV

4. STRIPES: Then I will punish their transgression with the rod. And their iniquity with stripes.” Psalm 89:32

5. STRIPES: Stripes that wound scour away evil, And strokes reach the innermost parts.” Proverbs 20:30

6. STRIPES: 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

7. STRIPES: “But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” Luke 12:48

8. STRIPES: 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 2:24


We Worship You, Lord, and Come before You with our Requests & Praises. We honor You as we keep You in our lives. Please listen to this video as I present prayers before you. Come back and watch this again, today:   “Healing Scriptures to Pray and Declare”

A Powerful Prayer for Healing
By Karen E. Smith

PRAYER REQUESTS: : For the African orphans of our sister ministry with Pastor Steven Mwesigwa at Hope & Joy Ministries, Please continue to give. The food budget had to be “dipped into” to hospitalize a child. Lord, find a way in us.

Let us have FAITH to move mountains so that donations may be given for them to buy their own land. They DO wish to be self-sufficient. Let us help them make it so. $5K needed. $50/month needed to meet one child’s needs!!! Lord, we know you can bless us so that we can bless them.

PRAYER REQUESTS:  Pastor Steven Mwesigwa asks we agree with him for protection against a “BISAKA OWOBUSOBOZI” who calls himself God and “channels people to his evil work.” We pray for protection against evil men who kill parents and kidnap children, turning them into fighters with guns. We pray for your Angels to protect them, Lord.

PRAYER REQUESTS:  For Pastor Aamir Aslam in Pakistan, who cares for orphans there, too. Please send him a wife and a family, Lord, if it be Thy Will.

PRAYER: During this song, Lord, let the people get blessed and lay themselves down to you. Let their spirits open up to receive your Healing, and let many good stories be yet to be told. In Jesus’ name.Amen.”

“Holy Spirit, Rain Down”
By Pastorloran

HEALING TIME: For all our disabled and Chronically Ill FB friends, including: Kirstie Summers, MaryAnn Gray, Tamzin, Helen Whitman Waltz, Tracy Norton, Bob Coleman-Long who is hospitalized with another spinal infection, Amy Coleman, Antose Cofield, whose now has quadruplets as his wife died in childbirth, Evangelist Ahimbisibwe Faston, and so many others that You know, Lord.

Help us to bless all those who call out to you in daily prayer, and lead them to find comfort and healing. Lord, we ask that you perform miracles in all those whom this ministry touches, so that we may serve You with our new lives.

I touch the computer screen as the “Laying on of Hands.” Lord, I ask all those who need Healing to touch their screens to receive the Healing Power of Jesus.

“Thank you Lord. I pray that each person is healed in mind, body, and spirit, and that any physical pain or abnormalities are straightened now, dear Lord. All over the world, we have Your Healing Power going through cables and wires to satellites and back down upon us. All over the world, bodies are being restored and regenerated, rejuvenated for Your Work, by Your Word, and by Your Healing Power. Thank you, Jesus! Amen!”

You Please pray in silence, or pray by Agreement, saying, “Yes, Lord, I agree. Give me your healing power. I accept it into my heart. May I follow you and Your Word, on what it says about my healing. Amen.”

Now you stop saying “MY stomach is KILLING ME. MY headache is DRIVING ME CRAZY. MY body can’t even stand up. MY head has too much pressure. SAY THE OPPOSITE. “Lord, THANK YOU for healing my headache. Lord, THANK YOU for healing my body. Oh, Lord God, Thank You for helping my head with this pressure. IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AMEN!****

You MUST pray for Healing in the NAME OF JESUS. His is the Name above all Names, the Author and Perfector of our Faith, the one who healed us by HIS STRIPES, HIS SCOURGINGS, HIS LASHINGS taken upon His back for US.

Sure, see your doctor like normal. We are NOT telling you stop seeing your doctor. Tell your doctor of the great things that Christ has done for you!

PRAYER REQUESTS:  We ask for special blessings for those who are searching for a job, a raise, housing, food, clothing, or a better economic position.

PRAISE REPORTS: That more people coming to our Services, to honor and Praise the Lord. May we lead them ever closer to you, Lord.


Our GOD is Greater
By Chris Tomlin


***************INVITATION AND RENEWAL PRAYER: Do you want to accept Christ as your personal Savior?

If you have not yet said this prayer ALOUD to accept Jesus as your Lord and Personal Savior, you can do so now: “Lord, I have not accepted You fully into my heart, or I did once long ago, and have strayed. I ask that you forgive my sins, enter my heart, and stay with me forevermore. I thank you that by grace alone, and your death on the cross, I can enter Heaven to be together with you.”

If you have said this prayer in earnest, please stay after the service for Counsel and make sure we get a Mentor for you, so that we can disciple you from a ‘baby’ Christian to a ‘fully-grown’ Christian who is then able to lead. We then go out to all ends of the earth, spreading the Gospel or supporting those that do so. Amen!*******************

PREPARATION FOR HOLY COMMUNION: Until I studied it myself, I did not realize how seriously God ACTUALLY judges us, and WE JUDGE OURSELVES for taking Holy Communion. It IS Holy. You must first accept Christ.

We are not to take it if we are sinning, or it is blasphemy against OURSELVES and the Lord. I encourage you not to take Holy Communion until after watching my short version (31 min) of my Bible Study on it: https://youtu.be/RIW44PDgM6w (you will see that taking HOLY Communion wrongly can lead to a person being sick, weak, or even dying.) and the Sermon version at: https://youtu.be/cGExxw8gzdk

After you check all this, please get bread and wine ready.
********************


HOLY COMMUNION & THE LORD’S PRAYER
Let us take Holy Communion together, after saying the Our Father, as Jesus told us to pray together:

THE OUR FATHER
Our Father, Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy Will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory.
Forever and ever. Amen.


GATHERING: Gather your bread and wine for Holy Communion. Bread, tortillas, chips, and grape juice, water, or any juice works. God understands.

*************SOUL PREPARATION: Prepare your heart and soul. Ask God to forgive you of your sins, both known and unknown. Forgive your enemies, and those who have caused you harm. Let it go. Let God handle it. Be obedient and righteous before God. You belong to God now.

HOLY COMMUNION SONG:
In Remembrance of Me”
By Cheri Keaggy

******************


TOGETHER WE PARTAKE IN HOLY COMMUNION:
We proceed with Holy Communion, in Remembrance of Christ’s death:

TAKING THE BODY: We break off the bread, eat it as His Body, and remember His death for us. Amen. As we chew it and swallow it, it cleanses our bodies and our souls. (Eat the bread.)

TAKING THE BLOOD: We drink the wine that signifies His blood, for the shedding of all sins, as Christ died and took our place for us on The Cross. (Drink the wine.)

You may sit or kneel after taking Holy Communion, remembering Christ’s death.

PRAYER SONG AFTER HOLY COMMUNION:
“Oceans Will Part”
By Hillsong       
*********************

DONATIONS:
""Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me! But you say, 'How have we robbed You?' In tithes and offerings." Malachi 3:8

Let us continue to be cheerful givers back to God, who blesses us. May He count is as our being good servants, so that He may bless us again, and we may tithe again in His name. Please be directly in touch with Pastor Steven Mwesigwa to help pay for the hospital and food needs. Amen.

DONATION SONG:
“We Fall Down”
ByWorshipVideo


CLOSING PRAYER BY KIRSTIE: Dear Lord, as we bow our heads today at this hour, we remember the many fallen veteran's from the war's in mark of respect to their loved ones who are here today without the fallen. We pray for the many men and women who have served our country and lost their lives and who have also left loved ones behind today.

We pray for the men and women in Afghanistan who are still currently fighting for our country to return home safe to be with their loved ones. We pray for many Children, Young Adults and elderly men and women who have lost their lives over the years from fighting diseases that got too weak to keep fighting. May their loved ones know they are at peace and that they are not crying in pain so their families can have NO MORE TEARS in there eyes.

May we bless and heal the many young and elderly that are still in hospital critically ill, may your healing hands touch their souls, Lord. Dear Lord, help us bless each and every day with the happiness, love, strength and courage to carry on till we come into the hands of the Lord himself. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen!

CLOSING SONG BY KIRSTIE: (who did not know the Service would be on the topic of “Healing,” so thank you, Holy Spirit for working within us and for us for the benefit of the Body of Christ):

What Faith Can Do
By Kutless

Stop at tne end of the song, please.


DISMISSAL: For all of you who are sick or unable to function ‘normally,’ wake up each morning anew as your eyes open, PRAISING GOD FOR ANOTHER DAY. SPEAK THANKS! SING HIS GLORIES!

See yourself getting better. Visualize your ‘healthy’ self. Feel the body, the normal body you know is inside of you. We ask you now, Lord Jesus, to heal all those within reach. Touch them, and through the power of your Holy Spirit, heal them! Begin to work a miracle! Amen!

If you have not yet accepted Christ as your Personal Savior, this is Your Plan of Salvation.


THE PLAN OF SALVATION:
1.   All have sinned. (Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:8)
2.   There is a penalty for sin (Romans 6:23; John 3:18)
3.   You cannot save yourself (Titus 3:5; James 2:10)
4.   Salvation has been provided (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; John 14:6)
5.   The conditions are simple:    A. Repent (Luke 13:3); B Confess (1 John 1:9; Romans 10:9); C. Believe (Acts 16:31)
6.   Now is your time for a Decision (Joshua 24:15; 2 Corinth 6:2)

Do you repent for your sins?
Do you confess your sins to the Lord?
Do you accept the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, into your heart?

If you answer “yes” to all these questions, you are now a Born Again Christian! We love you! Welcome to the body of Christ! Confess it with your mouth, or write it here! You must say it out loud! Praise the Lord!


Go now, and Spread the Word of God to all the Ends of the Earth!
