Kenneth Copeland - Today Is Your Day For Healing
- Give to KCM
Let's go here to Galatians chapter 3, verse 29, "And if you be Christ, or if you be in Christ, then are you Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise". Say it, "I am the seed of Abraham". Now this is very, very important. Very close friend of ours, and she is quite well known for being Joel Osteen's mama, Dodie Osteen. John is in heaven today and they're very close friends of ours. She was diagnosed with liver cancer. They called and Gloria and I set ourselves in agreement with them and believed God with them.
She refused to go to bed. She refused to quit doing anything that was her responsibility. She said there were days she thought she was going to die that day and pain and the whole thing but she absolutely would not quit. She, of course, she's a very small person to start with and she just, you know, kept losing weight and all that kind of thing, but she went through her healing scriptures three times a day. Three times a day. She would go through them. I'm, I took her list of scriptures and all of those marker tabs on the end of my bible, those are all of those scriptures marked in my bible so I can flip from one to the other and do them every day. Amen.
So she just kept doing that and just kept doing that, thank God she's alive today. Amen. Hallelujah, praise God. Isn't that wonderful? Now that's 4, Proverbs 4:20-22, "Attend to my words. Incline thine ear unto my sayings, let them not depart from your eyes. Keep them in the midst of your heart for they are life to those that find them and health to all their flesh". Now, are you receiving? You got your receiver out?
Now my grandson Jonathan, is a freshman at UIW, University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio, and they play in the Southland Conference, and as a freshman he's their starting quarterback. He's, but he needs a receiver. He's not any better than his receivers. He's really good, not just because he's my grandson, he's a candidate for player of the year, thank you very much. I'd like to say I taught him everything I know but I didn't. But I taught his daddy. Anyway, that is a very, very good illustration. I don't care how good he is, he's no better than his receiver. Now Jesus is the healer and he's the same yesterday, today, and forever, but he needs a receiver. So who's open? Yes, amen, the glory's here.
Now, Luke chapter 13, look at the 10th verse. "He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath and behold there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity 18 years and was bound together and could in no wise life up herself. When Jesus saw her, he called her to him and said unto her, 'Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity,' and he laid his hands on her and immediately she was made straight and glorified God. And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath day and said unto the people, 'There are six days in which men ought to work,'" well now he had, had six days a week for 18 years. Amen?
"There are six days in which men ought to work, in them therefore come and be healed and not on the Sabbath day. The Lord answered him and said, 'You hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox, or his ass, or his donkey from the stall and lead him away to watering? Ought not this woman being a daughter of Abraham whom Satan hath bound lo these 18 years be loosed from this bond today?'" Today. Today is the day of deliverance. Today is the day of salvation. Today. This is your day. Today is the day. Go to the 5th chapter of the book of Mark. Glory to God, hallelujah. Mark chapter 5 verse 1, hang on let me get there. "They came over unto the other side of the sea into the country of the Gaderenes. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately they met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit".
Now there's only one spirit that possess a person. 6th chapter of the book of Ephesians, they rank and fowl of Satan's kingdom, starting from the lowest level devil first, principalities, powers, now here's the ones that possess people, rulers of the darkness of this world. Those are the ones, in this world that possess people, wicked spirits in heavenly places are, well I won't get into that but they're not on this level, that's not part of our discussion today. Now we have a combination here of one spirit plus three to six thousand principalities and powers. Okay? All in one man.
Now notice this, "Met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. And when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshiped him, and cried with a loud voice and said," now this is not the man, this is that demon using his voice, "What have I to do with thee Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, thou torment me not. For Jesus had said unto him, 'Come out of the man you unclean spirit.' Then Jesus said, 'What is your name?' He answered saying, 'My name is legion, for we are many.' And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. All the devils besought him saying..."
Now see, spirit that possessed him, the ruler spirit was gone. He just said, don't make me leave this country. Well Jesus didn't even answer him, he told him to leave and he argued with him. And out he went. "Now all of the devils besought him saying, 'send us into the swine that we may enter into them and forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out and entered into the swine and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (there were about two thousand) and were choked in the sea. They that fed the swine fled and told it in the city and in the country and they went out to see what it was that was done. And they came to Jesus and see him that was possessed with the devil and had the legion sitting and clothed and in his right mind". Glory to God. "Sitting and clothed and in his right mind". Oh glory to God.
"And they were afraid. And they that saw it told them how it befell to them that were possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine. They began to pray him to get out, to depart out of their coasts. And when he was come to the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him. Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, 'Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.' And he departed and began to publish in Decapolis," the ten cities, "How great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel".
Now, here is a man, completely, totally, possessed. He didn't get that way over night. You don't get that possessed in just a few days. This is a life matter with him, for some reason or other. Somehow or another that devil got ahold of him and got in him. He wasn't just obsessed, he was possessed and had given himself over to the legion. My, my, my. If there ever was a man that the devil could've stopped and kept him from worshiping Jesus, it should've been him, but there ain't no devil that big. No devil's that big. Amen. This man, got delivered, healed, got him some clothes and called to preach, that fast. It didn't take two weeks. Jesus didn't say, now you're going to have to confess my word for another three years to get rid of all this. No, no, no he just set him free that fast.
I know a young man that was praying for some women that had been drug addicts and just had cutting marks, they were cutters, this guy was a cutter. Somebody just got delivered of that. Glory to God. Oh, thank you Jesus. Thank you Lord. Hallelujah, and all other kinds of physical addiction, shameful addictions, things you just don't want people to know, well you're free sweetheart. You're free right now, glory be to God, Jesus has set you free, you are free from a drug habit, you are free right now in Jesus name.
Todd preached to these young women and glory to God, they received it and he baptized them in water, and when they came up out of the water their scars were gone. The scars were gone. He called me, he's so thrilled man, he said their scars were gone. The needle scars and the cutting scars, they were gone when they came up from being baptized. What's even greater are the spiritual scars, the mind scars, today is the day. God is our healer. He is our healer. Jesus is the healer. Do you believe that? If you believe this gospel that I have preached to you this morning and you are ready to receive the power of God onto salvation for your spirit, your mind, or your body, stand up on your feet right now. If you can't stand up, get up on the inside. Hallelujah, glory to God. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, by the authority invested in me as a prophet of the living God and a teacher of the gospel, I take authority over all sickness, over all disease, over all devils.
Say this with me, "the gospel that I have heard is the power of God unto my salvation. I confess Jesus Christ as Lord over my life. My spirit, my soul and my body. I receive the power. I receive the power of God to make me sound, to make me whole, delivered saved, healed. Now, I act on the word of God. I receive the power of God. Sickness, disease, pain, I resist you now In the name of Jesus. Sickness, weakness, pain, you are not the will of God for me. I enforce the word of God on you. I will not tolerate you in my life. Leave my presence right now. will never allow you back. My days of sickness and disease are over. I am the saved. I am the healed. The power of sickness has been forever broken over my life. Jesus bore my sickness. He bore my weakness. He bore my pain. I am forever free. Sickness shall no longer lorded over me. Sin shall no longer lorded over me. Fear shall no longer lorded over me. I have been redeemed from the curse of the law. I proclaim my freedom in Jesus' name today. The gospel is the power of God unto me, unto salvation. I receive the gospel. I act on the gospel. I am made whole in Jesus name. And I act on it".
Praise him. See through your eyes, hear through your ears, straighten up. Straighten up, be delivered, be free, be sound. Bend over and touch your toes, praise God. Do what you couldn't do. Do what you couldn't do. Act on your faith, glory to God. Act on the gospel, act on what you've heard.
