Activating The Laws of Healing

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on August 18, 2011 by troyanthonysmith

Lets imagine for a moment that you and I went back in time to the year 1400. As we were walking down the road, we suddenly see a plane fly over our heads. After being in amazement for a few moments, we say, ‘wow, that was a miracle’. We would say this because something that large is not supposed to be able to fly off the ground, therefore we would say it’s a miracle and defies all laws of gravity.

In today’s world however, planes are a normal occurrence and we would not call that a miracle. Over the last hundred years, we have discovered the law of lift, which supersedes the law of gravity, and applying this law results in planes, jets, helicopters, and gliders. Ok, Troy, where are you going with this?

When our ministry team is out on the streets or in Wal-Mart or wherever, and we lay hands on someone and they are healed, the crowd looks in amazement and says, ‘wow’ that is a miracle. For them, it defies all understanding and is outside of the norm. But for Christian believers this should not be seen as a ‘miracle’, but a normal occurrence for us. Nor is it a one time thing, but a principle and law that has been discovered and is being applied daily. So what law are we using? And can it be applied in any given situation, at any time?

Through the curse of Adam, the whole world became subject to sin, sickness, disease, and lack. Yet through Jesus Christ, we have been made free. So what law are we using? According to Romans 8:2, the law of Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Sickness has no legal right to be in my body and when I lay hands on the sick, I minister the life of Christ Jesus and any sickness must go from anyone at anytime.

Now some theologian somewhere will probably try and debate this and say why it will not work and how healing is not for today, much like how the naysayers tried to convince the Wright brothers in 1900 that flying is not possible. John G. Lake, a great man of God who lived about a 100 years ago, demonstrated this scripture as he was ministering in Africa during a time of a great disease outbreak. He wanted to prove to the scientists divine healing, so he applied the frothy diseased particles from a man who recently died and applied it to his arm. Under the microscope they could see the diseased particles literally dying upon contact with his arm. When they asked him how he was able to do this, he explained the law of life in Christ Jesus, and that sickness had no legal right to be on his body.

So what is actually happening here, and how can we apply this law in our lives? In my previous post I explained the supremacy of the kingdom of God. What is actually happening is the kingdom of God is invading Earth and wiping out the effects of the curse. Through Jesus, we have been given authority to bring the kingdom of God to any situation where the curse is involved. In Jesus’ prayer, he said, ‘Thy kingdom come, they will be done, on earth as it is in heaven’. So just as things are in heaven, we have a right to call forth on the earth. If you see a man on crutches, ask yourself if he was in heaven right now, would he be on crutches? No, then call forth the kingdom of heaven right now over his situation on earth, and command him to be healed in Jesus name.

So how do we call the kingdom of God (or heaven) down on the earth exactly? Just how do we activate these laws that you are talking about Troy? Great question, I’m glad you asked.

When Jesus died on the cross and his blood was spilled, the debt was paid for every sickness that has ever existed and will ever happen in the future. Its already been finished, God is not ‘going to heal (in the future) anyone, he already took care of it on the cross 2000 years ago. Its so sad when I see people at the altar begging God to heal their Aunt Betty of her disease, saying prayers like, ‘Oh won’t you please heal her Lord…if you could find it in your heart to heal her…Puleease Lord, heal her.’ I say that this is so sad because he already did everything he is going to do regarding healing, and begging to get God to move is not how it works. Its not that God cannot heal her, and its not that God is unwilling to heal her, but we have to do our due diligence to find out how to receive the healing that cost Jesus his life 2000 years ago.

So here is how you do it. Its really simple. First of all you must believe. Believe that the work of Jesus is finished, and that everything pertaining to healing is in your hands now. He has given you the power to release it upon the earth. The next step is to activate, or to release the healing by faith. This is done by speaking to whatever is the problem and commanding it be well in Jesus name. Our faith is released when we speak words of authority based upon scripture. For example, if someone has lung cancer, speak directly to the lungs and command the cancer to go. This is what Jesus did, he spoke directly to the fig tree in Mark 11, and then told the disciples to speak directly to a mountain and it would obey them. So speak directly (and don’t doubt in your heart) to what the problem is, and then do something you could not do before (if there was stiffness or pain in an area of the body), as this will spark your faith.

So here are some points to remember. It is by grace (a free gift, and gift we didn’t deserve) that all mankind is saved, healed, and made whole. Yet we only have access to this grace by faith. It is like a house that is prewired for electricity and lighting. The TV and lights and do not turn on by themselves, you must still flip the switch. Faith is like flipping the switch. We are not working or striving for healing or any of the promises of God, the work has already been done through Christ (just like someone had to go wire the house, set up the lights, and plug in the TV). Just flip the switch!

Believe in the finished work of Christ, activate the healing power of God through faith (speaking it), and watch the power of God transform all of society!

Are you willing to flip the switch?

Do You Know Who You Are?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on June 23, 2011 by troyanthonysmith

Do you know who you are today? Many of the problems that believers have today is because they do not have a clue to their true identity. They pray for things they have already been given, and beg God for things that already belong to them. As a new believer, I would read the Bible and be astonished at the stark contrast between what the Word says, and the lives of the actual people who claimed to be living by it.

Remember the movie the Bourne Identity, starring Matt Damon? In the movie, he plays an assassin who has his memory totally wiped out. As the movie progresses he discovers he has these abilities innate within him to basically be a one man army. It’s the same way in the spirit. Once we were born-again and filled with the Holy Spirit, innate within us is the DNA of Jesus Christ. We have the ability to do everything that he did. In fact, he even claimed that we would do greater works than He did. (John 14:12) Now that sounds blasphemous to someone who does not know their place in Christ, yet that is exactly who we are. It’s not so much about becoming something or increasing our ability, but just discovering who we are and what we have been created to do.

What? You mean I can walk around just like Jesus did? That’s right, in fact that’s what He intended. But in order for this to become a reality for you, you must settle 2 things in your heart. The first thing you must settle is that you are complete in Him. You do not need anything else, no other aid or support. The second thing is that the work has already been finished.
Let’s settle the fact that you are complete in Him. Most Christians generally do not have a problem believing that when Jesus walked the earth, that He had the fullness of the Godhead in Him. According to Colossians 2:9 (Amplified version) ,’ for in Jesus the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form.’ Yet most Christians stop there. The very next verse it states that you too are filled with the Godhead. ‘And you are in Him made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature].’ So in another words, as you are in Christ you are not missing anything. It’s like you are a soldier equipped with all the same exact weapons that Jesus was equipped with.

There is a popular teaching going around in some Christian circles that you must receive a ‘special’ anointing or ‘gifting’ to do certain things. For example you must receive a ‘healing anointing’ to pray for the sick or a ‘prosperity mantel’ or a ‘deliverance anointing’ to cast out demons. Some believers even go from conference to conference all across the country to pick up anointings and mantels like they are trophies of some kind. All of that is unbiblical, and suggest that somehow you are insufficient as a believer and need to receive ‘more’. The only thing you need is the Holy Spirit, all these benefits are included in your born again welcoming package. I suggest you read your new hire material.

Again, you are totally complete in Him. If you are ministering to someone in the street or in school, the reality that you have everything you need to set the person free must overrule any feeling of lack. Inside of you is the ability to cast out any demon if you have to, lay hands to heal if you have to, or even prophesy, give a word of encouragement. Allow yourself to be led by the Holy Spirit, remember you are fully equipped to handle the situation. I used to sit in the back of the church and watch the leader lay hands on the sick and watch people get healed. I would think to myself, ‘wow, that is amazing, what an awesome gift he has. Too bad I don’t have that gift’ Many Christians feel the same way, that they don’t have a particular ‘gift’ and then never venture out and do the miraculous. To sharpen your abilities it will take time and practice, but settle it once and forever that YOU ARE COMPLETE IN HIM, lacking no ability, gift, or anointing. According to 2 Corinthians 1:21, God has already anointed you.

The second thing you must settle in your heart is that the work of Christ is finished. When Jesus said, ‘It is finished’ he really did mean it. Most Christians spend days, weeks or even years in condemnation after they make a mistake. Jesus’ blood paid all the costs for sin, and God has blotted it out from His memory. According to Romans 8:1, there is NO condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus. Why is this important to know? This is important because if you are doing God’s work and you make a mistake somewhere, such a sexual mistake or a financial mistake, you must know that Jesus paid the price for any and all sin; so now repent and move on like it never happened.

This goes against EVERYTHING the world teaches us. They teach you to be in remorse for 10 years, resign from whatever position you had, and basically quit life. Even the church world can be the most condemning, but if you understand that you have been made righteous and nothing can change your right standing with God, just repent and finish your course, knowing that God is not holding your sin against you. Paul was heavily criticized for this teaching, as many people thought that this would encourage sin. ‘Shall we continue in sin, so that grace may abound. God forbid. How shall we that are dead to sin, live any longer therein’ (Rom 6:1). In fact, this highly discourages sin, because once you realize all that He has done for you, sin is the last thing on your mind. Condemnation is one of the enemy’s biggest weapons, designed to stop believers from continuing their ministry and be all that God created them to be. If when God sees you, all He sees is the blood, and to Him you look like a duplicate of Jesus, without any sin, why would you see yourself any different?

The work is finished concerning your healing. Jesus’ shed blood also took care of any and all healing. We now have a divine right to be healed. However with healing, you must activate your spiritual right. An analogy is a class action lawsuit. Imagine that a faulty prescription drug infected millions of individuals, and a lawsuit was filed against this drug. Anyone who took this drug would then be entitled to $1 million dollars. Now even if you took the drug, there still is some action that you must take in order for you to reap the $1 million, as indicated in the class action lawsuit, even though anyone and everyone who took the drug is entitled to the reward. In the same way, everyone is entitled to divine healing, based upon what Jesus did 2,000 years ago, yet we must activate our right to healing, based upon the legally binding paperwork of the Word of God. We activate healing by believing the Word and then releasing your faith (see my previous posts on Faith); or else the enemy will run all over you and your family with sickness, poverty, depression, and more.

The bottom line is that we are not trying to get God to do something. We don’t pray that God would heal someone. We don’t pray that God will forgive any sin that we might have just committed. What we do is align our thinking with the fact that through Jesus’ blood already paid the cost for healing and that through faith we activate it. I thank God that He has already forgiven me of my sin and then repent and move on. It’s all about living under grace. Grace is goodness that none of us deserved. Let grace be a reality to you today. Begin to walk in your divine dominion as a son or daughter of the Most High God!
