Healing With Neither Power Nor Holiness
by Dr. Jay Snell
Thank God that our level of power or holiness has nothing to do with our ability to get our selves or our loved ones healed. Take the case of Peter.
In Acts 3, he used the name of Jesus to get the man lying at the Temple Gate healed. In so doing, he declared that his (Peter's) level of power or holiness had nothing to do with the healing of this helpless man.
Acts 3:12 12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? (KJV)
I cannot over-emphasize the importance of this principle: Getting your loved one healed is not dependent upon your level of power of holiness! If it was, then no one would ever be healed.
Even Peter knew his level of power or holiness had nothing to do with the lame man's healing.
The devil will sidetrack you in this misunderstanding first. If he can make you believe that the healing of yourself or your loved one is in any way conditioned upon your own level of power or holiness, neither you nor your loved one will be healed!
Why? Because not one of us, including Peter, has enough power or holiness to get any one healed.
The proper approach to healing disarms the devil completely as he tries to peddle his "you are not powerful or holy enough" lie. You see, the anointing for healing comes on an act of faith based upon one or more healing scriptures used with Jesus' name.
Find one or more of these healing scriptures and do what they tell you to do. The healing anointing comes on an act of faith based on our obedience to the healing scriptures. This is the mechanics of healing by faith. This is the way it works. Obedience to a healing scripture used with Jesus name is our victory.
Thank God! Our level of power or holiness has nothing to do with our ability to get a loved one healed. That ability is based on obeying the word of God in conjunction with using with Jesus' name.
