Lesson 7
Healing the sick and deliverance


Jesus came to save, heal and deliver. These three make up total salvation. If you are saved and not healed this is not full salvation. Receiving healing and deliverance is for you, as this sets you free from sin and the evil holds on you in sickness and demonic oppressions.
Why does God want to heal you?

  1. It is part of salvation
  2. The word of God says so in many parts of the Bible, in healing scriptures.
  3. It is God's covenant with us.
  4. God answers our prayers.
  5. God loves us.
  6. God has compassion and mercy on us.
  7. God is more powerful than the sickness.
  8. By His stripes we are healed.
  9. God is willing to heal us.
  10. God has never said no.
  11. It is part of Evangelism.
  12. Has the authority of the name of Jesus.
  13. It proves Jesus is alive.
  14. It is the fulfilment of prophecy.
    15.lt is part of faith
  1. God is sovereign.
  2. To destroy the works of the devil.
  3. The Kingdom of God is at hand.
  4. It's part of the work of the Holy Spirit.
    20.To set us free, and many more reasons.

Ways Jesus healed


1 Through the authority of the name of Jesus. In the name of Jesus, every knee must bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord, and this victory happened on the cross so every sickness and every demon has to obey the name of Jesus, as all of them have a name.


2. Through the laying on of hands. Here the anointing upon the life of the
believer, who has spent much time in the presence of God and who is walking
filled to overflowing with the Holy Spirit, will, by the laying on of hands, transfer
the healing anointing received from God into the sick body to bring healing. The
person being prayed for will often feel this transfer of tingly heat coming into the
body to the area needing healing, and actually feel the pain or sickness leave
the body. They will then be healed and set free from the sickness or pain.


3. Through mass evangelism. Here God confirms the gospel message with His
signs and wonders that follow the preaching of His word. One will feel the Holy
Spirit coming down upon the crowd and by telling the people to lay their own
hands upon their sickness or pain they will receive their healing in Jesus' name.
After a few minutes, one can ask the people to test their healing by doing
something they could not do before and then to put their hands in the air if they
are healed. Tell the ones who are healed to be seated or to come and testify,
and then any who are not healed, to line up so you can lay hands on them.
Often the lame, blind or deaf can share their testimony once they have received
full healing.


4. By the anointing of oil. Sometimes in the more serious illnesses, anointing of
oil helps to bring healing. I have discerned that sickness or demons hate
anointing oil as much as they hate praying Christians and even prayer tunnels.


5. Casting out demons. One can deal with deliverance in the same way as for
praying for the sick, but never lay hands on the people. When I pray for the
people for deliverance, I like to look them straight in the eyes and take
command in the name of Jesus in a firm authoritative voice without shouting.
Often you can see the hardness of the demon staring at you out of their eyes, sometimes even mocking or laughing aj, you. This will help you to know how to use your authority in Jesus name, and one can often see the eyes soften to normal as the demonic spirit leaves the body. Sometimes they will leave as a scream or in coughing or vomiting. Sometimes the person will fall to the ground and shake violently, sometimes slither like a snake or look like they have severe stomach cramp. Often commanding it to leave firmly seven times will bring the demon out. It is important to take firm authority in Jesus' name at every command and it will then quickly go. If you weaken in any way, the demon or
evil spirit could keep you going at it for hours, so it is important not to give in for even a second, but to demand that it gets out immediately in Jesus' name.
In the cases of multitude of demons as in delivering witch doctors, it may take a few sessions to get all of them out. With one witch doctor it took three days of deliverance of a couple of hours each day until every demon was expelled and she was truly set free to become a strong Christian.


6. Follow up
Once a person has received their healing or deliverance, it is important to thank the Lord for what He has done, and to fill the person with His Holy Spirit so that every vacant area where the sickness, evil spirit or depression was, is filled.
Ask the person if they would like to receive Jesus as Lord and Saviour, and if they are already a Christian, whether they would like to be baptised in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will enable them to grow in Christ and to keep their healing or deliverance.


7. How to keep free
The sickness or demonic spirit may try and come back. They can only gain a foothold through the mind, through a negative thought that gives them legal right to re-enter the body.
It is important to tell the people that if a negative thought tries to enter, they are not to receive it, but tell it to go in Jesus' name, turn their eyes upon Jesus and praise Him for the healing He has done. If they do this, they will walk in their healing or deliverance for the rest of their lives.
