Healing and Deliverance Come by Faith
If ye shall ask any thing in my [Jesus’] name, I will do it. — JOHN 14:14
When this man with TB of the spine walked back to his seat, I wondered why what I’d done didn’t work. I walked back behind the pulpit, and, suddenly, Jesus stood right in front of me. I saw Him just as plain as I saw the pulpit. It was an open vision. No one but me saw Him.
Jesus put His finger right up under my nose and said, “I said, ‘In My Name, the demon or demons will have to go!’” No one else saw or heard Him (although they did hear what I said in reply), but I saw and heard Him. I said, “Lord, I know You told me to call them out in Your Name and the demon or demons would have to go. I told it to go, but it didn’t leave.”
Jesus again put His finger right up under my nose and almost touched it. He said, “I said, ‘In My Name, call them out! In My Name, the demon or demons will have to go!’”
I said, “Lord, I know You said that. It hasn’t been thirty days since You appeared to me in Rockwall, Texas, and laid the finger of Your right hand upon each one of my hands and told me to lay hands on the sick. You said that if that fire jumped from hand to hand, it meant there was a demon or demons in the body. Then you said to call them out in Your Name and they would have to go. I know You said that. And I told it to leave, but it didn’t go.”
Then Jesus stuck His finger right up to my nose and said, “Yes! But I said it would!” Then He disappeared. When He said that, I got it.
I told the man to come down to the front again. I put one hand on his back and one hand on his chest. I said, “Devil, I told you to go and now you’re gone.” Then I said to the man, “Stoop over, brother, and touch your toes.”
When I said that, over he went! I mean, he touched his toes in an instant! Where was this man’s healing? It was in the faith realm. My doubt robbed me. I’d been saying, “See if you can touch your toes.” My unbelief robbed me. Unbelief robbed the disciples. Don’t let doubt and unbelief rob you.
Confession: The devil is a liar and a thief. I’ll not let him defeat me. I’ll not let the devil rob me of the blessings of God. Instead, I will walk by faith.
