Kenneth Copeland - Instructions To Receive Healing
TOPICS: Healing

Just go to Matthew 22nd, 34th verse. When the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him saying, "Master, which is the great commandment in the law"? Jesus said it to him, "Thou shalt love the Lord by God, with all thy heart, with all thy soul, with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. The second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thy myself. Listen, on these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets".

I want you to keep that in mind. Now we go over here to the 23rd chapter of Exodus. You shall not repeat or raise a false report. You shall not join with the wicked to be unrighteous witness. You shall not follow a crowd to do evil, nor shall you bear witness at a trial, so as to hide with a multitude to pervert justice. Neither shall you be partial to a poor man in his trial, because he's poor. If you meet your enemy's ox or his donkey going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again. What is this? Love your neighbor as yourself. If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying helpless under his load, you shall refrain from leaving the man to cope with it alone. You shall help him to release the animal. This is a man who hates you. You shall not pervert the justice due to your poor in this cause. Keep far from a false matter.

Be very careful not to condemn to death the innocent and the righteous, for I will not justify and acquit the wicked. You shall take no bribe for the bribe blinds those who have sight, and perverts the testimony and the cause of the righteous. Also, you shall not oppress a temporary resident. For you know the heart of a stranger and sojourner, seeing you were strangers and sojourners in Egypt. Six years, you shall sow your land and reap its yield. But the seventh year you shall release it and let it rest and lie fallow, so that the poor of your people may eat what the land voluntarily yields. And what they leave, the wild beast shall eat. In like manner, you shall deal with your vineyard in olive grove. Six days, you shall do your work, but the seventh day you shall rest and keep Sabbath, that your ox and your donkey may rest and the son of your bond woman and the alien may be refreshed. In all I have said to you, take heed. All I have said to you take heed. All I have said to you take heed.

Now we're working on something here. All I have said to you take heed. Praise God. Do not mention the name of other gods either in blessing or cursing. Do not let such speech be heard from your mouth. Three times in the year, you shall keep a feast to me. You shall keep the feast of unleavened bread. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. And if we come across something here that rings a bell with you, repent. He said, "If someone that hates you, somebody that hates you, get his donkey out of the mud or help him get his car started on a cold morning". And Jesus said it like this, "Love those and pray for those that despitefully use you".

This is where Jesus got all this. So three times in a year, you keep a feast to me, the feast of unleavened bread. Seven days, you shall eat unleavened bread as I commanded you. At the appointed time in a month of Abib, for in it you came out of Egypt. None shall appear before me empty handed. Don't come in here without an offering. There was a man and people criticized him terribly, but he'd be preaching healing, and he'd just stop receiving offering. Bless you. And He'd be going along and he'd just stop receiving another offering. And he'd stop, receiving another offering. And then in a little while, he'd pray for the sick. And man, I'm telling you that miracles just flow. And the Lord said, "Don't come to me empty handed". He had to command what Jesus did. Amen.

And Solomon, he did that. I'm telling you, he made sacrifice. No telling how long it took to prepare his offering, because he killed half the animals in town. I mean oxen and sheep, and just to worship the Lord, his God. Solomon had a huge heart and mind. He was like my spiritual father Oral Roberts. And you walk into his office and there he said, "Make no small plans here". He's right there on his desk, "Make no small plans here". Solomon never made a small plan in his life. Everything was better. Everything was better for God. There wasn't enough gold for God. Hallelujah. So none shall appear before me empty handed. Also you shall keep the feast of harvest to Pentecost acknowledging the first fruits of your toil, or what you sow in the field. And third, you shall keep the feast gathering booths and Tabernacles at the end of the year, when you gather in the fruit of your labors in the field.

Now all of this, he's telling them what they must do. He hadn't said a word yet what about what he's going to do. But now there's a restructions and corrections, and now we're going to get direction. You shall not offer blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread, keep it unmixed. Neither shall the fat of my feast remain all night until morning. The first of the first fruits of your ground, you shall bring into the house of the Lord your God. You shall not boil a kid in his mother's milk. Behold, I send an angel before you to keep and guard you in the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared. Give heed to him, listen to and obey his voice. Be not rebellious before him or provoke him, he will not pardon your transgression for my name is in him. But if you will indeed listen to and obey his voice and all that I speak, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversary.

When my angel goes before you and brings you to the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites and Canaanites and Hivites, all the ites, the Jebusites, and I reject them and blot them out. You shall not bow down to their gods or serve them or do after their works, but you shall surely, you will utterly overthrow them and break down their pillars and images. You shall serve the Lord your God. He, that angel, shall bless your bread and water. I will take sickness from your midst. None shall lose their young by miscarriage or be barren in your land. And I will fulfill the number of your days. Now, see what a mess up you can do just by taking that one verse out. And it didn't even make sense. You should serve the Lord your God. He will bless your bread and water. That didn't make sense.

And people say, "You should serve the Lord your God, I will bless you". You have to twist the scripture to get it to say that by not reading the chapter. That causes problems. We'll see that later on. But I wanted to make a point of that. All these things, and God provided everything. Only thing he required, don't come to me empty handed. That he required that. And don't mess with their other gods. Don't even let the name of them come out of your mouth. In other words, God's saying, "I don't want to hear that. I'm your God. Don't bring them up". I've got an angel here and he will bless your bread and water. And I'll take sickness from the midst of you. And nobody's going to have any miscarriage if you do what I say. And the length of your days I will fulfill. Glory to God. Correction is a vital thing. And it's a wonderful thing. It's part of instruction, to correct. And that's good.

Go to the book of Acts in chapter one, verse seven. And he said unto them, "It is not for you to know the times and the season, which the Father has, but in his own power, but you shall receive power after that, the Holy Ghost comes upon you and you shall be witnesses unto me, both in Jerusalem, all of Judea, Samaria under the unto uttermost parts of the earth". And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up in a cloud, received them out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly towards heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, which also said, he said, "Hey. Hey. Hey, quit looking up there. Listen, look at us. You men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into heaven. This same Jesus, which has taken up from you into heaven shall so come and like manner as you have seen him go into heaven".

Now, Hebrews chapter 13. Everybody in here can quote it, but we need to put our eyes on it. Praise God. Verse seven. Remember them, which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the Word of God, whose faith follow, considering the end of their manner of life. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever. The healers in the house, by his Spirit he is here. Now I mentioned this earlier, but I particularly want to bring it up here again today. My father in the faith, Oral Roberts, Jesus said this to him the night he was healed. He was dying with tuberculosis. Stuttered so badly that he couldn't talk around anyone but his family. But his mother said, "No, this is my preacher". I said, "This is impossible. He can't even talk".

But Brother Muncie came to town with a tent. Glory to God. On the way Vaden, his brother and his sister came by there at the house and got him. The wall next to his bed was splattered with blood, where he had coughed blood and spit it over onto that wall. On the way, the Word of the Lord came to him and said, "I am going to heal you. And you are going to take my healing power to your generation". On the way to that meeting. He was skin and bones. Vaden just picked him up like a baby, just carried him. And he, Oral Roberts is a big man. He's 6'3 in his stocking feet. And he was just nearly dead. He just carried him. They took the back seat out of the car and just set it out there on that car seat, listening to Brother Muncie preach healing. And then he said, "Bring that young man up here to me". And so they brought him up there. And he said, "Young man". He instructed him. And he said, "Now take a deep breath".

Brother Muncie didn't know anything about the stutter. They didn't mention that. Tuberculosis was killing him. He said, "Take a deep breath". And Oral said when you took that breath, he said, "Breath went all the way down". Before that, he just... And cough. He said, "It went all the way down". And then he asked him his name and he gave him his name and told him. Did not stutter a bit, walked away from that place healed with healing to his generation on his heart and mind. He was pastoring a little church in Oklahoma and he kept preaching and they kept smiling and nothing happened. And he just kept preaching and preaching and preaching healing and, "Yes. Oh yeah. Isn't our little preacher good"?

And just kept... nothing happening. And he just got so burdened with that. And he did have a situation where one of the men in his church dropped a big, I think it was a car engine or something, on his foot. And blood was coming out of his boot. And they said, "Rush over there". And so he did. And he came in there and that anointing just came on and just came on him and he just reached and touched his foot, and the power of God healed his foot. And he got up and was completely, totally healed. And they said, "Oral, what'd you do"? He said, "I don't know". But he got so desperate. He couldn't sleep. He was so desperate for what he had heard that night. He was so desperate for it. He was so desperate for that healing anointing. He got to the place he didn't think about anything else. He didn't pray anything about anything else. And he wound up one day in the floor of the kitchen on his face, just crying out to God. Crying out, crying out to him for it. He said he'd wake up in the night praying over it, just dreaming about it. It totally took over his being.

Now I said all of this and I know all, you all know this. But those watching online. And there are people yet today, "Well, I just don't know if it's God's will. But is it God's will for me"? Not one person came to Jesus. One man did. And he solved it forever. The leper. He fell down before him and said, "I know you can, if you will, will you make me clean"? And one translation Jesus said, "Of course, I will. Of course, I will". Now, why would he say that? Let's go to John chapter four. Now, since these are covenant words, we'll see in a moment why it's necessary to put our eyes on him. Why do we call this the Word of God? Because it is his bond. And a letter with your name on it is as good as face to face. And that's what this is. Amen. Is he a man that he should lie? Will he promise and not bring it to pass? No. The scripture says he watches over his Word to perform it.
