Your Deliverance Has Come!

Your Deliverance Has Come! One of the great things about the Holiness Church is its emphasis on deliverance. There is nothing to describe the feeling of seeing one literally shed the shackles that may have bound this individual for years! Bishop Murphy Pace and the Voices of Power sing this song with power. You don’t have to be bound! Our God is still in the delivering business!

The God that Still Heals!

God is still a healer. There is not a disease or condition that he can not heal. For the next several months we will post scriptures on divine healing. The enemy has released such an arsenal of ailments and diseases on the Body that many believers are in need of divine healing. There are many people who hardly care about healing until they are in need of one.

God can still heal you! The following scriptures will attest to the fact that we serve a God that can heal all of our infirmities. Hebrews 13:8 states-Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today, and for ever. The same God that healed on yesterday is the same God that can heal you on today and on tommorow!

Healing was not an obscure Bible concept. Healing was an integral part of the ministry of Jesus Christ and the ministry of many who were used by God in the Holy Writ as attested by the following scriptures. God can heal whatever ails you! If you can have it, God can heal it! I humbly submit that the God that I serve is still a healer.

Isaiah 53:4-53:5-Surely he hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Matthew 4:23-And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manners of sickness and all manners of disease among the people.

Matthew 4: 24-And his fame went throughout all Syria and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with disease and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

Matthew 8:14-8:17-And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and he healed all that were sick. That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses.
Matthew 9:35-And Jesus went about all their cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

Matthew 10:6-10:8-But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach sayinjg, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Matthew 14:14-And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them and he healed their sick.

Luke 4:18-4:19-The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Luke 9:11-And the people, when they knew it, followed him and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.

3 John 1:2-Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

My Thoughts on Opposition

God greatly uses those who are greatly opposed! Anyone that will be used by God in a great way will be targeted by the enemy and his minions. I have never been afraid of opposition that comes against me when I know that I am right. If one is to become great with God that individual must be delivered from the opinions of mere men! Yes, there are many waves and trends in the Body of Christ that need to be corrected or eradicated altogether. I do not agree with the circus sideshows that some have made of the church. Yet, I will stand by my position that calling preachers names and distributing negative information about ministries all day long is not a productive use of one’s time. Yes God has called some to be watchmen; however I doubt that God has called anyone to spread venom all day long. Jesus called some that were evil in their deeds some names like hypocrites, snakes, fox, and thieves. Jesus also opened blinded eyes, unstopped deaf ears, healed the sick, and raised the dead. He spent the vast majority of his time doing the work of the kingdom and not castigating others. God has called some of us to call for reform in the church, yet I doubt seriously in those calls he did not appoint any to call people back alley or gutter styled names. I am not attacking your platform Mr. Jones(Note-Part-Time Theologian/Owner of a Website that Bashes Preachers All Day Long), but I am attacking the manner in which you carry out your mission. Will unbelievers be swayed by believers who argue like the ruffians in the streets? How can we be so mean spirited when many of us are making it on a wing and a prayer? Have we given up being our brother’s keeper in order to be our brother’s killer? How many reputations and ministries are killed every day by the bloody hands and venomous mouths of some of our brothers in Christ? God has anointed me for a specific work and for a specific cause. God will use those who have the heart of God and not just the sword of God in these last days. We should target apostacy whenever it is found, yet should we never be found calling the unsaved masses to Christ? Has God called some of us to spend all day long being “Fruit Inspectors”? God has commissioned no one to be a ministry critic all day long! I submit to you that those that God has commissioned to be his watchmen will also have his spirit! I am sure of my salvation and I don’t have to pass anyone’s test or criteria concerning my salvation. He’s my God too! In the 23rd Psalm, the psalmist states that he prepareth a table before me in the prescense of my enemies. My enemies are a sign of my coming elevation. All of those who have attacked me just for caring for the Body and loving the Body shouldn’t worry because you all will be invited to God’s coming out party for me! Psalm 126 records a deliverance for Zion that was so special that the heathen nations even stated what God had done for Zion. God can send a deliverance that is so surreal that even a fool couldn’t miss it. I submit to you in that same vein, that God is getting ready to make many of us who labor for his kingdom’s sake the “talk of the town”! God always makes sure that those who are his get the last laugh!
