Kenneth Copeland - Put Faith In Action for Healing
TOPICS: Faith, Healing

Now we're going to stay well here in I Thessalonians the fifth chapter. In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. It's not the will of God that it happened to you, but it's the will of God you give thanks. I broke my toe about three o'clock that morning on that great, big old green foot stool. I did a very dumb thing. When I come back there, we'd been gone for days and days. And when I get home I'm home, I didn't want to leave home in the first place. If it hadn't been for preaching, I'd stayed home. And now Gloria and the kids had gone to bed and I'd just stayed up just long as I can stay awake. I'm home. And I did something extremely stupid. I turned out the light and then walked across the room and I kicked this big old green thing. And I hurt my toe. "Pow"!

Now, if it's not in you, it won't come out. I could have said something really ugly right then. I walked in the hangar, it wasn't our hanger it was in another place. And I had flown an airplane over there to show to these people. Anyway, they were working in the hangar and the tip tanks on a twin Cessna stuck out here like this, and they're just this high. And one of the mechanics in there was coming around there and he hit. No. I take it back. And he knew I was a preacher, and you can imagine what he said. And he looked up at me and said, "Oh preacher, I'm sorry"! I said, "Well, don't let me cramp your style". I said "Jesus said, when he was on earth, 'out of the fullness of your heart, your mouth speaks'. And now we know what you're full of".

Oh, I shouldn't have said that. And that night, instead of saying something like that, I said, "Jesus, glory to God! Thank You, sir. That I broke my toe, no! That I'm healed". "Thank You, sir! I'm healed. Hallelujah! Glory to God". And of course Gloria was sound asleep when that happened. The next morning I got up and come in the kitchen there. Now we've learned these things. Instead of saying, "Oh, Kenneth, what happened"? No. She said, "Is there something I can pray with you about"? I said, "Oh yeah. I kicked that big, old green stool in there". Ottoman, are you kidding? It's a big green foot stool. I broke my toe, I know I broke it. I know. And she prayed.

Well, I had an appointment at the airport to look at that first little red airplane we were talking about yesterday. And I walked in there and I'm hurting. And I said, "I need to see Mr. Spanks, if you don't mind". She said, "What happened"? I said, "About three o'clock I broke my toe". But you know, Jesus said, when he was on earth, what's for everything you desire, when you pray, believe you receive it. I believe I'm healed. By the time I got that out, she's backing off, man. I mean, she's getting out of the way. And she backed off and got the appointment with Mr. Spanks. And I told him about that airplane. And because I had flown it before when I worked for him, I knew the condition that it was in.

And he said, "Well, yeah, Kenneth, I'm glad you going to buy. It's a good airplane". I said, "Yes, I know it is". And so he said, "Let me call my secretary in here". And he's making out the papers and I said, "Now paper? Now wait a minute", I said, "You know, I don't borrow money". I said, "Now that I'm in the ministry, that airplane's going to belong to Jesus. I'm not going to mortgage his airplane". I didn't go into all the reasons why. I said "I have $5,000 and I want you to keep that $5,000 until I get the rest of it". Well, it's a $9,000 airplane. And the Lord will get me the money. He turned around and he said he won't borrow money. I went around, got in the car and I drove around behind that hanger where that airplane was. And there it was, looked just as good as it did the last time I saw it. I got out and walked over to it, no pain. Jesus, the healer by the Holy Spirit in me fixed that toe. And I'm telling you, my toe was black and blue and beat up. Amen.

And so I started out the door of his office. He said, "You got any idea when God's going to get you that money"? Now listen here, he didn't know I was saying it. I turned around and I said, "No, I don't, but you hear me saying it now God will get me that money". "I believe you. I believe you". So I went on less than a 15-minute drive to my house. And I got there and Carolyn Savelle's dad, Olin called me. He said, "Kenneth, Mary and I were praying this morning". And I think, "Yeah, it was that morning. Cause Gloria got home. Gloria said, Olin called you, and here's his number". "And we were praying and the Lord said something about you in an airplane".

I don't know what was going on. So he said, "We put a check in the mail. It ought to be there probably. Well may be there today. I don't know. To your ministry". I said, "Olin, how much was it"? He said "$3,500". I happen to have $500. I got right back in the car, drove back over there. I said, "I got the money". He said, "You did not". I said, "God got it for me, I said he would". And I was sitting there then the next day in the fuel office, they were gassing our airplane. And I was just waiting to pay the bill and Pappy walked in the door over there. And he had a man with him. He said, "You see that man over there"? He had a big grin on his face. The guy says, "Yeah". "He has money coming into him in wheelbarrow loads"! I started to say "No", the Lord said "Agree with him"! I said, "Yes, sir! Glory to God"!

Well, I'm telling you, Jesus is healing this morning in wheelbarrow loads! He is the healer by his Spirit. And his Spirit is healing. He's been healing all morning. Check yourself out, glory to God. You are already healed. Your throat is healed. Your nose is healed. Your eyes are healed. Your ears are healed. Your stomach is healed. Your knees are healed. Your elbows are healed. Your feet are healed. Glory to God! People are being healed. Glory to God. People are being healed. The Spirit of God is rising up. The Spirit of God is moving. In everything, give thanks. This is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the spirit. What does that mean? Walk in love. Don't be saying things that are not faith words and love words. Don't do that. Despise. Not prophesize. Prove all things. Hold fast to that which is good. Prove all things. How do you do that? With the Word. Prove it. Prove it, prove it with the Word.

When you understand and you know what God is speaking to you in his Word. Then it's settled. This is my Bible. Right here and I didn't steal it. Wayne Cochran. Oh God bless him. He's in heaven today. Old CC rider. And some of you old rock hounds remember CC rider. One of a great, great band. Played Vegas a lot. And he got saved in a hotel, reading a Gideon Bible and he took it with him. He didn't know that it was there to take, he thought he stole it. And he told me later, he said, "Kenneth, I got saved out of a Bible that I stole". I said, "What have you told me"? He said "The Gideon Bible". I said, "Wayne, you didn't read the rest of that Bible. You were supposed to take it". "Really"? He'd never been in church. Never read a Bible in his life. Born again, filled with the Spirit.

Well, a lovely man. In Las Vegas, he got the owner of the hotel casino born again. And then he called Wayne, and he'd been listening to some of my tapes. Then he said, "Do you suppose that Mr. Copeland would come preach in my hotel"? And he said, "Well, I know he would". "You really think so? In the casino, in the hall"? He said, "Well, yeah". So he called me. I said, "Wayne, will I ever, let's set this thing up"! And hey, we had some great meetings in that casino hotel. And one night I was behind the curtain there in this great showroom there and just waiting 07:30 and this blackjack dealer stuck his head through the curtain. He still had his little bow tie stuck on his collar. He said, "Brother Copeland, I just wanted to tell you, I had to be on the floor tonight, but I'm praying for you, brother. I'm praying for you". A lot of people in Las Vegas know God. He said, "I'm praying for you". Amen.

Jesus started a great move of God right there in that casino. So this is my Bible. Always stay on the God side of everything. I'm completely well today, because of this book. My heart's well today, because of this book. It took corresponding action, I had to get on that treadmill and go to work hard. And yes sir, I will. Present day, the pacemaker, they said I needed a pacemaker. And I said, "Lord, I'm going to get that by faith". He said, "No, no, you're too far behind the power curve". You believe God, you believe for that pacemaker. Well, it had a built-in defibrillator. They didn't have to use the paddles anymore. And that was a new thing. And the FAA had no experience with that. I took their test 9 minutes with the defibrillator active and it was textbook all the way through it. Then all of the papers, the tech rep for the company came out to our place and disabled that defibrillator because I don't need it anymore.

And God said to me, way back there, "I have given you a new heart" and I took it and began to confess it. And I said it day after day after day, 08:42 in the evening in Dallas, Texas. I just preached in a prison over there with Mike Barber. And I got short-winded in the thing, I finished my message that night, never did have a pain. Never had a pain with it at all, but I got really short-winded. I finished it and just sat down in the airplane and I was currently filled up with the glory of God. And he said, "I've given you a new heart". I said, "I take it. I take it". And I talked about my new heart all the time, talked about my new heart all the time, talked about my new heart all the time. And I have a new heart. He will do it. He will do it. He will do it. Say it. He will do it. He will do it. He will do it. Ha! He has done it! He has done it. Glory to God. Stand up with me please.

Now I'm going to say to you what Brother Hagin said to us. Plug in with faith. Now all the power flowing through these lights. A lot of power, huh? But it has to be plugged in. And when you turn on your radio in your car. You don't go call the station. There's something wrong with your station. You're not broadcasting. What? No, you're not in tune. You better adjust the dial. Plug in with your faith, plug it in, plug it in. Don't pull the plug. Glory to God. When he was healed of heart and totally paralyzed, and then he plugged in with his faith. If you believe this gospel that I have preached to you this morning, and you are ready to receive the power of God unto salvation. You're already standing. The power of God for your spirit and your mind, your body. You're already standing on your feet. If you can't stand up, stand up on the inside. If you can't, if you can't stand up out of that chair, stand up on the inside. Glory to God! Hallelujah! Stand up on the inside. And I take authority over all sickness, all disease, over all the devils. Glory to God! Lift your hands, close your eyes and say boldly:

The gospel that I have heard is the power of God unto my salvation. I confess Jesus Christ as Lord over my life, over my spirit, over my soul, and over my body. I receive the power of God to make me sound, whole, delivered, saved, healed. Now I act on the Word of God. I receive the power of God. Sickness, disease and pain, I resist you in the name of Jesus. Sickness, weakness and 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. I 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 broken forever over my life. Jesus bore my sickness, my weakness, and my pain. I am forever free. Sickness shall no longer lord it over me. Sin shall no longer lord it over me. Fear shall no longer lord it over me. I have been redeemed from the curse of the law. I proclaim my freedom, in Jesus' name today. Today. I said 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.

Well act, move, do something! Bend over. You couldn't bend over, bend over! You couldn't move your arm, move your arm! Do what you couldn't do before. Glory to God, do something! Put it in action. Corresponding action. It'll break free. It'll go free. Praise God! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God. Yes, Amen! The aisles are open. Run if you couldn't run! Walk if you couldn't walk! Do something, do it now. Glory to God! Hallelujah! Praise God for evermore. Thank You, Lord Jesus for your Word. Thank You for your Power. Thank You for the Word of the Living God!
