When we open the Gospels, we invariably find Jesus has come from a healing, is in the middle of a healing or going to a healing. If we were to charactize Jesus’ ministry with one activity, it would be healing. Yet today, in the Church, in our lives as Christians, where Jesus indwells, healings are rare. Something is wrong. We are missing something.
As a consequence of more than 20,000 hours of counselling, this book shares with you a tried and proven approach to healing that works. The methodical approach outlined works. People are healed. Jesus, through the Holy Spirit does the healing. Not randomly. But still miraculously.
Chapter 1 looks that the reasons why God doesn’t heal today like he did in New Testament times. You will understand why Jesus could heal back then without dealing in depth with other issues and why those issues are important for us today. We explained in “Underestimating Satan”, that basing deliverance on the way Jesus did it is fundamentally flawed, We fail to take in the bigger picture. In the same way, restricting healing to the way Jesus did it is fundamentally flawed. We simply expect people to be healed if we lay hands on the them, anoint them and say a short prayer. We miss several key points and this chapter goes into these in some depth.
Chapter 2 provides a comprehensive healing model that can be applied to any sickness or disorder, whether mental or physical. The medical profession is, generally, removing symptoms, not dealing with causes. For most of us, if the symptoms are gone, we are happy. However true healing or stopping the reoccurrence of a problem, has its solution in the soul, not the body. The focus of this healing model concentrates on bringing resolution to these soul and spirit issues. We look at the most common mental issue, depression and the most common physical issue, heart disease, and see how the model would be used in both cases.
Chapter 3 fleshes out chapter 1 and 2. Okay, so we know why God doesn’t heal and it is great to have a model that covers all possibilities but how do you apply this in a practical manner to bring healing to the person? How do you enable the Holy Spirit to move with greater frequency and bring his healing touch? Again, looking at depression, we go through each of the steps necessary to bring resolution to all of strands in the model; to bring true healing. We look at heart problems and cancers in considerable depth applying a key factor in the model.
Chapter 4 examines an aspect of the model that requires a different approach to healing; the impact of direct physical trauma such as injuries sustained from a car crash. When an injury has its origin in an event that is clearly defined and that injury doesn’t fully heal, it is because there still exist soul and spirit issues that must be resolved before the body can come back into alignment. Jesus heals most dramatically in such circumstances, and we often demonstrated this on stage in healing conferences. The eleven steps of the model are outlined in detail.
Chapter 5 looks at four important tools that aid the healing process. These are often neglected and under utilized.
Chapter 6 contains the personal sin profile for 50 ailments, mental and physical. This is the engine room of the model and utilizing these lists in the manner outlined will bring significant improvement and sometimes complete healing by focussing just on this aspect..
If you are serious about healing, this book is for you. We want to take healing out of the realm of the passive Christian and his hope in the randomly miraculous. Instead we want to put healing into the realm of the diligent disciple and his real hope in the greater likelihood of a miraculous outcome through the progressive elimination of barriers. A structured healing partnership, no less miraculous, but much, much more satisfying.
