The Law of Faith
Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. — ROMANS 3:27
At the same meeting in which I laid hands on the seventy-two-year-old man, I laid hands on his pastor. But the pastor did not receive healing. Five years later, he decided to resign his church. He said to me, “I’ve had this physical condition for so many years, and I just can’t get healed. I feel like I’m doing the church an injustice because I can’t do my job properly. I’m just going to retire.” He was in his mid-fifties. He did retire and I never heard of him again.
Someone might ask, “Well, why could you get that church member healed, but not the pastor?”
I’ll tell you exactly why. When I dealt with the pastor, I laid hands on him, prayed for him, and asked him the same questions I asked the man who was a member of his church. The pastor heard me talk to the man. He saw the man healed. He knew his physical condition. He knew that there was nothing that could be done from a medical standpoint—that it had to be supernatural. Yet the pastor sat right there and missed it.
Why? He was too much in the mental realm. Spiritual things were not real to him even though he was saved, filled with the Holy Ghost, and pastoring a Full Gospel church. Why didn’t God just go ahead and heal him because he was such a good person? God operates by certain laws. One of those laws is the law of faith. This pastor didn’t work that law.”
Confession: I base my faith on what I know from God’s Word. I don’t base my faith on human reasoning or understanding. I operate out of my spirit, not my head.
