Sid Roth - Need Healing? Use This Simple Key From the Bible
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it's naturally supernatural. So many people have so many sicknesses and so many of these people have tried everything the medical world has, everything that they've read about, books up to here about healing, and they're stuck. They believe it's true, but they're stuck. Well my guest has so many incurable people healed that 16 hospitals and their doctors send incurable, the ones that medical science has given up on, patients to her and she says healing is simple. Would you like it to be simple? Get unstuck. Tens of thousands have been healed under your ministry, many miracles, many bonafide miracles. But you're special. You must have special gifts and powers.
Sandra Kennedy: I'm not special at all. What I do, anyone can do. Anyone can do.
Sid Roth: You've proven it. You've trained anyone to do it.
Sandra Kennedy: Yes, I've trained anyone and they can do it.
Sid Roth: Well you say something that some people get upset with, Sandra. You say healing is simple.
Sandra Kennedy: Yes, I do.
Sid Roth: So how come when I ask audiences, how many of you need to be healed, 99 percent of the hands go up and that extra one percent they're just liars.
Sandra Kennedy: The biggest problem, Sid, is that most people are trying to get from God something God has already given. And so they are begging God, pursuing God, crying out to God, reading books, trying methods, trying this, trying that to get God to do for them what God has already done. So therefore, they put all of it on them. It is a big mentality.
Sid Roth: You said one of the keys is to fall in love with God. Elaborate on that for us.
Sandra Kennedy: I actually tell folks this, and, Sid, it's the truth. If I can get you to fall in love with Jesus, that's my job to get you to fall so in love with him that you just take from him what he has already given you. Most people know about God and don't really know God. They don't know what God has done. They don't know what God has provided. They don't know the blessings of God. They don't know what God has already, as I said, given to them. So if I can get you to fall in love with him just from his Word, get you to fall in love with him, you will automatically be able to take what somebody you love has given you.
Sid Roth: You know, a lot of people approach this as almost formula.
Sandra Kennedy: Yes.
Sid Roth: And that is, to me, that is the missing ingredient. It's not formula.
Sandra Kennedy: It's not formula at all.
Sid Roth: It's God of love.
Sandra Kennedy: Right.
Sid Roth: And getting to know him. You like to teach a lot about Proverbs 4:20.
Sandra Kennedy: You've got to get into the Word. You've got to understand what the Bible has to say about healing. And when the Bible says that healing, that the Word of God is medicine then you will take a scripture. He said in his Word, "Heal me".
Sid Roth: My translation doesn't say, Proverbs 4 doesn't say "medicine", but I know that's what the original Hebrew says.
Sandra Kennedy: Yes. It says "medicine", absolutely, it's medicine for you. And if you keep that word, keep applying, like you do medicine, take it morning, noon and night, you take the Word of God and you talk to yourself what the Bible says to you until you get it, Sid, from your head down into your spirit. Now people get stuck, and I know we've talked about this a lot, people get stuck because they're stuck in their head. They know how to parrot it back. They know how to say it back to someone what the Word of God has said. They know how to parrot what a book has said. They watch somebody, but they don't know, it's not real to them. So all I have to do is have I have a pain, all I have to do is have something change and I automatically go with the problem instead of what Jesus has said. But if I believe him, if I really believe him then I'm going to start saying back to myself, well this is what the Word of God says. What am I going to do and who am I going to believe here. You know, the Bible says this, my symptoms say this. You know, I tell people sometimes to take their doctor's report, for instance. You take your doctor's report and then take your Bible and put it on top of the doctor's report. Now you got to believe one or the other. You're going to believe one or the other and the one you give all your attention to is the one you're going to believe. So you've got to give your attention, everybody here, everybody you know who needs healing are begging God to do something that he's already done, every person you know.
Sid Roth: Tell me about that man in the coma that your team, not yourself, people you just trained, what happened?
Sandra Kennedy: The man was in a coma, had very little time to live at all. Went in there. His wife was there, and I mention that because she thought they were crazy. They went in there, three or four people went in there and they began to speak, remember, we don't speak to the flesh, we speak to the spirit. We go in because you're a spirit. You have a body that you live in, that's what's sick, and you have a soul and your mind, your will and your emotions, and it's your thinking that's messing up your body. So you got to get your thinking right. So they go in and they talk to the man as if he were not in a coma. They begin to say what the Word says over him.
Sid Roth: By the way, your spirit can hear no matter what's going on in the physical.
Sandra Kennedy: No matter what. So you're talking to the spirit. And so you go and talk to him, hello John. His name happened to be John. "Hello, John, I'm so and so and the Bible says this, and by the stripes of Jesus you are healed, and God sent his Word in you, took all your sickness and all your diseases". And you begin to speak to that spirit, "Spirit, come on, come out of that coma. Come on, bring yourself and let the healing power of God push out the sickness". Oh I love saying this. The healing power of God, Sid, when you got born again, the healing power of God, Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, moved inside of you, so you have inside of you right now all the healing power of God already in you, every, it's in you now. When you got born again all of God came in you, which means all of his healing power came in. But I've got to get it from the inside to my body. My body is sick, my spirit is not.
Sid Roth: All right, I want to talk about that when we come back. But what happened to the man in the coma?
Sandra Kennedy: The man came out of the coma days later, weeks later.
Woman: Thank you, Lord.
Sandra Kennedy: Showed up at the healing center, walked down the street and the person who happened to say, "Hello, my name is such and so," she was walking down the street, and he said, "Hello Velda". Her name was Velda. "Hello, Velda, my name is John," which meant he heard her in that coma.
Sid Roth: My goodness. When we come back I want Sandra to step by step tell me what she had to do, not when someone else needed a creative miracle, when she needed a creative miracle. Anyone can teach it. Anyone can speak a good game. What happens when you need a creative miracle? Be right back.
Sid Roth: You know, as I was saying, Dr. Kennedy does not just teach by what she's learned. She actually has put this into practice in her own life. That was an awful thing that happened to you. Your nice little doggy bit off your lip. That is not a cool thing to happen.
Sandra Kennedy: No, that is not.
Sid Roth: And so did you have the lip in your hand?
Sandra Kennedy: That's the first question the nurse asked me in the emergency room, where's your lip? I didn't know it was gone. The dog, as I bent down, the dog jumped up by accident, and the mouth of the dog, he was a Sheltie with a pointed lip like that, closed here and closed down on my nose to this side over here, took that lip off. I didn't know what it was because there was so much blood. I had no idea. So I just grabbed a towel, put it on it, called some friends and said, "I think I need to go to the emergency room". First thing they said to me is, "Where is your lip"? Well I had no idea if the dog had eaten it or what. I didn't know where my lip was.
Sid Roth: Now you're talking up, which I understand why because I know what happened. However, at that time I don't think you were so up.
Sandra Kennedy: Oh I wasn't up at all. Here I am, I was horrified. Horrified.
Sid Roth: Can you imagine? You're deformed now.
Sandra Kennedy: I was actually horrified. I'm deformed. And so they told me I needed plastic surgery. The plastic surgeon came in and he instantly said, "I can't do anything". He said, "If it was the bottom lip it would reproduce itself. This is the top lip, it won't reproduce itself". And he said, "I can't do anything". He said, "It's ragged. I've got to cut it again and then pull it together". And he said, "We're going to have to have to go to surgery right now and then you're going to have to have three to six more surgeries". And I instantly said, "I will never have another surgery". And he just looked at me like I was crazy. And I said, "On top of that, it's my lip and I'm going to pray for you". So I took his hands, never met this guy in my life, took his hand and prayed for him. Went into the surgery, woke up in the middle of him sewing up my lip with black gut stuff. As he's sewing up my lip I heard him tell the nurse, "I don't know why I didn't do this. I normally sew the lip totally up, come back three weeks later, slit it". And I'm thinking, I'm a preacher. Don't do this. I'm thinking. I can't say anything. And I said, thank God that's why you didn't sew it up. When I came out my nose was sitting over here on this side because he pulled it. They had to pull it. So I'm lopsided like this, Sid. I'm lopsided. The only part of my lip that's open is a little teeny hole right over here and I could just talk with a microphone like this on this side.
Sid Roth: Yes, but you're not going to talk on a microphone with people looking.
Sandra Kennedy: I had a healing explosion ten days later.
Sid Roth: I know, but don't you know what you looked like?
Sandra Kennedy: Yes I did. I knew. And when I went in, the first thing I said was, okay this is how I look. This is the way it is. And what I ended up doing was I went home and I got all the pictures of me smiling because he told me I would never smile again. They would never be able to see my teeth ever again. And I got every picture of me smiling, plastered it all over all the mirrors, all over in the kitchen, everywhere. And then every time I'd go by a mirror or go by something I'd speak to that lip and I would command it in the name of Jesus to move. I'd command it maybe 30 times a day. I command you. He said it wouldn't remove, remember, it couldn't move. And I said, I command it to move. When I go back to see him I kept saying, no I will never have another surgery. I will never have a surgery. And he kept trying. He brought out a book with cleft lips and all kinds of deformities, and he said to me, "I want you to look at this". I said, "I will never look at this. I don't want to get it in my mind. I will never look at it. I won't look at anything except pictures of me smiling and what I want this lip to do". And the day that I had the healing explosion that I looked so bad, I turned my back to the congregation and I said, "It's every man for himself". I turned my back to the congregation and I said, "I command you to move". And God as my witness I've never had a surgery, not one single thing. And see, I think you can count my teeth pretty well.
Sid Roth: I see. Well you talk about two things. I want you to briefly comment on it, persistence and actually acting on the Word, not just thinking about what the Bible says.
Sandra Kennedy: Remember, it matters what you think. That's why I wouldn't get that book in front of me. I wouldn't get the pictures in my mind. It matters. And when I made the statement earlier that I'm aware that all of God's healing power is inside of me, and the only thing that's blocking God's healing power from getting to my body, that's anybody who's listening, the only thing that's stopping it is my mind what I'm thinking. So I've got to persistently stay tuned to the Word of God until it gets my passed my mind into my heart that I believe it more than what I see.
Sid Roth: Yes, but what if it wasn't you. What if someone is listening to us right now and they've done it all wrong. They have a picture in their mind of them dying of a dread disease. What can they do?
Sandra Kennedy: They can do exactly what I did. They've actually got to change their thinking. The thinking is the process. You've got to change your thinking. They need to start visualizing themselves. They need to see themselves healed. They need to see if they're skinny and emaciated, they need to see their body getting weight on it again. They need to believe that Word of God that it's released in their body and that there's something happening in their body. And what it is the power of God that God has released in you. They've got to just speak to that body, keep speaking to it. Say I can't lift my shoulder. I command it in the name of Jesus, shoulder, you will lift. You will in the name of Jesus. The number one healings that we see are cancer, percentage-wise are cancer and we curse it. We curse it and we tell that cancer it will die in Jesus' name, and we keep seeing it go, seeing it go. And the secret, you release your faith by praise and gratitude. So I have to say, Lord, I'm so thankful healing is inside of me already. I thank you it's in me. Isn't that wonderful? I thank you it's in me and, Father, I just release it now.
Sid Roth: So what you're telling me, if I'm understanding you right, it says it says in Proverbs that the Word is medicine. You take as much medicine as you can.
Sandra Kennedy: Yes.
Sid Roth: If you knew that you had a medicine that would heal you and you could have as much as you want, what would you do? When we come back I'm going to find out what a woman did that was diagnosed with cancer and got a hold of this teaching. Be right back.
Sid Roth: Some of you are trying to wrap your mind around this concept. It's so simple, yet so profound. The healer, not a little bit of the healer, THE healer is living within you. You don't have to run to some place. He's in you. You talk about, and this is so important, the power of agreement. What do you mean by that?
Sandra Kennedy: Agreeing with God. You're going to be agreeing with somebody. You're either going to agree with the doctor, thank God for good doctors, but you're going to either agree with the doctor or you're going to agree with your symptom. You're going to agree with something. So you need to start agreeing with the Word of God. Get somebody to agree with you.
Sid Roth: All right, but do you deny your symptoms?
Sandra Kennedy: No. You deny the right for them to be there.
Sid Roth: I see.
Sandra Kennedy: You don't deny them, but you deny, you don't have a right in my body. I'm not saying you aren't there. I'm saying you don't have a right. I do that. Now remember, a symptom is not a sickness. Your mouth can make it a sickness.
Sid Roth: You're just describing the power of agreement in reverse.
Sandra Kennedy: Absolutely totally.
Sid Roth: All right. We have readers that read, we get manuscripts before they become books. We got a manuscript in, your manuscript, and this has never happened before. Our readers read lots of books on healing. This woman was facing surgery and after reading your book something clicked and she didn't need surgery. Let's have Lori tell you herself.
Lori: I was experiencing excruciating pain in my shoulder and was diagnosed after an MRI with a torn rotator cuff. The doctor actually said it was hanging by a thread and I would need surgery. Doctor: I'm sorry to tell you this, but you're going to need surgery.
Lori: While I was reading "The Simplicity of Healing" it connected with me on a personal level that changed my mindset concerning my own healing. I already had knowledge of the principles of healing, but it helped me to see where I had head knowledge, but wasn't letting it get deep into my heart and spirit. While reading this book, God revealed to me the moment I came into agreement with the symptoms and how the symptoms actually became a condition because I came out of agreement with what God had said and came into agreement with the enemy. I repented when I realized what I had done and immediately the pain left my shoulder. Look, God healed me. Doctor: What?
Sid Roth: You know, Sandra, as she was talking about what happened I could feel the presence of God coming.
Sandra Kennedy: I could, too.
Sid Roth: What's going to happen to our people that are watching right now?
Sandra Kennedy: If they grab hold of it and will grab hold and begin to agree with God and thank him with gratitude, the healing power of God that is already in them will begin to be released inside of them, pushing out that sickness and disease. They have to continue to praise God, thank you, Lord, God. Most people know the principles in their head. Same thing she was saying. But it dropped down inside of her and it became real to her, and it became more real than the problem on the outside. And you begin to say, if you will do it, if people will do it, if they would just begin to say, thank you, Lord, that I am healed, thank you that you're doing this in my life, thank you, Father God, that the healing power is in me. I agree with you. You said I'm healed, so bless God, I'm healed. You know, you've got to get in agreement with somebody. I'm going to agree with you, God.
Sid Roth: Okay. I hear what you're saying. But again, one of your staff people, director of ministry, develops cancer. How bad a cancer? There's no such thing as a good cancer. How bad?
Sandra Kennedy: Well she totally recovered. The mass was just all the way across her stomach, just totally that way. She just happened to be a nurse, too. And she said that the Word is more powerful than a two-edged sword, and so she went in and let the Word become a scaffold to her and she spoke to the cancer, and believed God to cut that cancer out. No pain. The pain did not leave. I mean, she was hurting just as bad. Every time she'd go back to the doctor.
Sid Roth: That took raw faith.
Sandra Kennedy: Absolutely. Absolutely. And the pain did not leave until the day she got the full report that she was totally cancer-free. And she didn't have surgery now. She never had surgery.
Sid Roth: Are many people with cancer healed in your organization.
Sandra Kennedy: Yes. The number one healings are cancer. I mean, we get calls from all over the world. We teach people exactly what I'm teaching here: How to believe God, how to get in agreement with God, how to expect God to keep his Word, how to expect God to do what he says he has done. And most of us believe that we've got to get God to do something and it's a whole different concept when you're praising him, but he's already done it.
Sid Roth: Do you know what I'm hearing, and I'm going to shout it to you: Never give up!
Sandra Kennedy: Never give up.
Sid Roth: Never give up! Never give up!
Sandra Kennedy: Never give up! Amen! Amen!
