Put the Word Into Practice
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. — JAMES 1:25
I was asked to preach at a certain convention in California. They wanted me to come and teach on the subject of faith. I didn’t have a “laying on of hands” service. I didn’t have a “preaching” or a “ministering” service. I just taught on the subject of faith.
There was a woman there who was a member of the First Foursquare Church of Pueblo, Colorado. She had said, “I’ll go to that convention and get Brother Hagin to lay hands on me.” She had terminal cancer.
Well, she came, but I wasn’t having a laying-on-of-hands service. I was simply teaching the Word. So she said to herself, I’ll just put that Word into practice myself. She acted on the Word she heard and was completely healed.
Two years later, I happened to be at this woman’s church in Pueblo, Colorado, and she was there. She gave her testimony. At first, her doctor just said that the cancer had gone into remission, but said that if she was still free of cancer after two years, it wouldn’t come back; she’d be cured. She’d gone in for her final examination right before I arrived.
After her examination, the nurse came up to her and asked, “Are you a member of one of those churches that believes in divine healing and the power of God?”
“Yes,” she said.
The nurse began to cry and said, “You know, the doctor and I already figured that out. We have your test results. This had to be a miracle of God!”
Confession: I am not just a hearer of the Word. I am a doer of the Word. I act on what God’s Word says, and I receive healing.
