Sid Roth - The Best Keys to Receive Your Healing
Hello. Welcome to my world where it's naturally supernatural. I was sitting down one day and I was thinking, I have so many guests over 40 years that when they tell me keys that God has instructed them, that absolutely work to reaching to the invisible world, and get their healing. But these same people that have these same supernatural keys, I hear them talk about other people that have other keys and they're saying, that's not right because God has shown me what is right. And what they don't understand is God works in so many different ways. And why should we limit God? And so I thought, over 40 years if I could write down the top ways that God has shown me through my guests of how to reach into that invisible world and pulling your healing, how that would so benefit so many people. Would you like me to teach on that?
Now some of you may be wondering why I'm seated and that's because you don't understand the Jewish way of teaching. When Jesus, and his name from Miriam his mother, wasn't Jesus, by the way, it was Yeshua. When Jesus taught, when Yeshua taught he would be seated and many rabbis teach this way. So I thought I would teach this way. Is that okay? All right. Now I'm going to tell you what the Holy Spirit revealed to me and this is important for you to capture, to grasp. The first thing I want to talk about is a word that I understand Joyce Meyer had a tape series on this, a CD series on this subject and no one bought it. And then she changed the title and people bought it. But the original title was what I want to talk about, "Humility".
Now I have a friend and this friend, he says to me all the time, "I'm nothing". And I have to tell you, teachers like Kenneth Hagin on the righteousness of God and Messiah Jesus, and so I heard him say that and I didn't say anything. That's his business, you know. But you know what? It's got to do with motivation. I hear many people say, I'm the righteousness of God, and that motivation isn't right. You know what I'm saying? And I hear people say, I'm nothing. I can tell you now, I can honestly say to you, I am nothing. I'm nothing. Without God, I wouldn't be seated here. Without God, I wouldn't even be alive right now. Without God, I wouldn't know where I'm going when I die. Without God, I wouldn't want to live.
And I found this in Scripture, Galatians, Chapter 6, Verse 3, "For if anyone thinks himself to be something when he is nothing, he is deceiving himself". You recognize the only thing good in me and the only thing good in you is the Messiah. Galatians 2:20, maybe you can understand right now, "I've been crucified with the Messiah. It's no longer I who live, but the Messiah who lives in me and the life that I now in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me". So anything good in me is from the Messiah.
I had the privilege of meeting Katherine Kuhlman, and Katherine Kuhlman would have all this wonderful worship. But you don't know, she had a motivation behind this wonderful worship. She would be backstage saying, "Holy Spirit, if you don't show up, nothing is going to happen". She knew that she was nothing and God could use nothing and make something out of nothing. There's no room at all for arrogance. Now one of the keys of walking in humility is walking in forgiveness, and I want to put the word "instant" forgiveness. Why? The longer you wait, the tougher it is. You have to instantly forgive. Mark 11:25-26 says, "Whenever you stand praying if you have anything against anyone", that's pretty inclusive, you know, anything. What? Anything. Against who? Anyone.
Now here's where forgiveness gets tricky. It's very important to realize if you're waiting for a feeling you may wait forever. It's a decision. I'm going to follow the Messiah. I don't care if it hurts, I don't care what happens, I don't care what I feel, I am a follower of the Messiah, and I am going to instantly forgive. It's a decision and you can do the decision. You can't do the feeling, but you can do the decision. The feeling will come. The second thing is I used to think in the wrong, this was wrong, that if someone did something bad to me they had to ask for my forgiveness in order for me to forgive them. Untrue. I am commanded by God to forgive whether they ask me or not. And number three, you can forgive someone and truly forgive them, but they have to earn your trust. That doesn't mean you're stupid. You don't have to trust them, but you have to forgive them. Now you know when you understand this, it's easy to forgive.
Someone said it this way: Unforgiveness is drinking the poison that you want the other person to drink. You know who you're hurting? You're just hurting yourself. Now the second thing I want to talk about is something that not too many people talk about and they'd better. This is the most important thing on the heart of God at this moment in history, and it's holiness, purity. Hebrews 12:14 says, "Pursue holiness without which no one will see the Lord". By the way, this is my P.S. No one will see the Lord in this life or when they leave. Anyone interested in seeing the Lord when they leave? Anyone interested in seeing the Lord in this life? Without holiness, you will not see the Lord. I mean, I kind of, I can rest the case on that.
First Corinthians 6:9-10, "Do you not know that the righteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God. Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor adulators, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covenants, nor drunkards will inherit the Kingdom of God". Biblical morality does not change with the times. God says, "I am the same yesterday, today and forever", and you that think you can practice new age, homosexuality, sex without marriage, living with a partner without being married, pornography, everything listed in Deuteronomy 18 and see God, you are as the scripture says, you are deceived. I'm telling you that holiness is possible, not in yourself, but it's called grace. It's not grace to sin, it's grace to have the power to overcome the sin. Let's get it straight. And when I come back, I'll go to the next point.
Here's another secret. It's so simple and yet so important. Remember the word "instant" I talked about in forgiveness? Here's another instant. Live in instant repentance. Do you know why? The devil is like a door-to-door salesman. What he does is he puts his foot in the door and then you can't close the door, so you don't want to even open the door. The minute that you have a thought that is not good and pure, and holy, and of good report, you know the source, and close the door. Don't you let that devil get a foothold because he doesn't play fair. As some people say, well once you repent you never have to repent again, well this was written to believers. Let me read this to you.
First John 1:9, "If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness". Is that good? But if we don't confess our sins he's faithful and righteous to not cleanse us of all unrighteousness. Who wants to see God without unrighteousness? Not me. Okay. I think I made my point. And by the way, I have found the power of proclaiming God's word out loud. When I was a young believer all of a sudden, I had like a spirit, I'm going to be real with you, I had like a spirit of lust and I'm thinking, I'm a believer, I shouldn't have this, where is this coming from? Oh, I know where it's coming from. Not from me. It's a demonic spirit.
So I found a scripture about it, "Blessed are the pure in heart". And I found that every time I have that spirit whisper in my ears, I would say, "Blessed", out loud, "Blessed are the pure in spirit". And you know what? What does it say in the Bible? Resist the devil and he will flee. And in the Greek, he will flee as in terror. So like taking the sword, the Word of God, say it here, take this devil, take this devil. You got it? Okay. And that works for everything. You got to find a promise, learn it and say it out loud. Now, and speaking of demons, did you know that not all sickness is sickness? A third of Jesus' ministry was casting demons out of people.
Do you realize what our young people are exposing themselves today? We're going to have a great move of God's spirit, and one of the major jobs of the church will be setting these young people free from the demonic whose doors that they've opened. So you have to recognize whether if you're praying for a healing or you're praying for a deliverance. The third most important thing that I wrote down, I love this, it's practicing the presence of God. You see, there was a fellow by the name of Brother Lawrence and he wrote a book on this subject, and he was a lowly monk. You know what his job was? Washing dishes. But he was so happy. He wasn't on grumble street. He was so happy because he practiced the presence of God. The presence of God was in washing those dishes. I can do this. You can do this.
Psalm 16:8 in the Amplified, "I have set the Lord continually before me". No, it wasn't the Lord is continually before me. I have set the Lord. I am conscious that the Lord, I am aware that the Lord, I have willfully said, Lord, you are before me continually. "Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved". And when you're in this presence of God, there is healing. Let me explain this to you. Isaiah 53:5, in the Hebrew, I'm sorry, in the English, it's translated from the Hebrew in most Bibles, "By his stripes we are healed". You've heard that. Another word for "stripes", if you look this up in the Hebrew, it's "By his fellowship I am healed".
You see how important the presence of God is. Now the Holy Spirit and the spoken Word of God work together. Let me show you the first mention of that. It's found in Genesis, Chapter 1, Verse 1. That's a pretty good first mention. "In the beginning was God". And then the second verse, "And the Spirit of God hovered over the water". And then the third verse, "God spoke". So where you miss it is you have to be in the Spirit before you speak the Word of God. Are you with me? This is such an important principle that you have to understand. I heard someone say this once, they said, "If you just have the Word of God, you'll dry up. It you just have the Spirit of God, you'll blow up. But if you have the Word of God and the Spirit of God you'll grow up". It's time to grow up.
Anyone here, at home interested in being in the Spirit 24/7? I am. Well let me show you something. First of all, most people don't know where the Spirit is. Spirit is also, you could translate Spirit of the heart. When you hear and read about the heart, it's the Spirit. When you read about Spirit, it's the heart. Okay, John 7, not in all cases, but in many cases. John 7:38 tells us where the Spirit is located, where the heart is located, "He that believeth on me", this is Yeshua speaking. "He that believeth on me as the scripture hath said, out of this belly", or out of this heart, "shall flow rivers of living water".
So where is the Spirit of the heart? In your belly. And I interviewed a man that told me something that was revolutionary. He told me how I could be in the Spirit 24/7. He said, "Sid, I want you to imagine an old fashioned well, you know with the bucket and the rope, and you let the rope down, you unwind the rope to the bottom of the bucket, and it gets the water, and then you roll it back up". He said, "Don't roll it up. I want you to just in your imagination believe that you are going down like that bucket is going down to the water in the well, slowly".
So you do this with me. So go right down to your spirit, which is where? In your belly. Do it right now. And then he said, "The trick is if you can stay there all the time", and what I found is, I've been doing this and I'm staying in the Spirit, and I have discernment now where I didn't have it before. Someone can talk and I could know it's in the Spirit or not in the Spirit, that it's truth or not truth. I can operate out of the Spirit. Now you're in the Spirit even if you don't do this, don't misunderstand me, but you're aware of being in the Spirit 24/7 when you do that.
The second way to be in the Spirit all the time, do you know, it's a simple way, and every believer can do it. Not every believer has the gift of tongues to publically speak or supernatural languages to publically speak in a congregation. But Paul said, "You all", the southern, y'all. Paul said, "You all can speak in tongue". And then he said, "I speak in tongues more than any man". And a man that wrote that much in the New Testament, I want to do what he did. And I have to tell you, when you speak in your supernatural language you are instantly in the supernatural whether you realize it or not.
And the third, I already told you, instant repentance. You don't let that devil put his foot in your door. No more. You got it? Okay. Anyone want a double portion of God's Spirit? All right. Here's how to do it. It's Second Kings 2, Verse 9-10, Elijah was speaking to Elisha and Elijah was about ready to be taken to Heaven by the chariots of fire. And this is what Elijah said to Elisha, "As what I may do for you before I'm taken away from you". And Elisha said, "Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me". So he said, "You've asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you. But if not, it shall not be so for you".
See how important it is to always be conscious. "I have set the Lord continually", that's what David said, right, "continually before me". You'd be aware of the Lord. I mean, why wouldn't you want to be aware that the Lord is continually before you? Same thing in the New Testament, Matthew 25:8-9, the ten virgins, five wives, five foolish, "And the foolish said to the wives, 'Give us some of your oil for our lamps are going out.'" This is just before the great Jewish wedding. You get it? "Our lamps are going out". You can't afford to let your lamps go out. But the wise answered, "No, lest there should not be enough oil for us and you. You go and you buy for yourselves". You can't buy someone else's time with God. You may want to give it to someone, but then you can't. Each one has to invest sowing in to the Kingdom of God. And if you haven't, remember what I said, instant repentance, then start. That's the good news.
