The following posts are reflections from the book. They are passages and scriptures by which our Father spoke to my heart. We sincerely hope it’s a blessing to you.
"For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says."- Mark 11:23"Grow up in faith. Open your mouth and speak to talk to sickness." Prayers that Bring Healing Pg.7. It's a wonderful journey. I asked myself is this a magic trick as God's children we just go around speaking to everything and every situation at random. Holy Spirit is revealing to me a lifestyle of faith. A life still of faith is growing our relationship with God to the point where we think and speak as He would in a circumstance. Jesus spoke and moved as the Holy Spirit lead Him. The truth is growth only takes place with practice and skill Jesus said “My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me. If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him." John 7:16-18. God is life.

"Healing accompanies the kingdom message...not only should expect to be healed, but you should know you are to pass the healing on to all those around you. That is true kingdom living" Pg 2-3. Prayers That Bring Healing by John EckhardtI thank Holy Spirit for every inspiration. One of the thinks I do is take a look at the first century church through scripture and through history. The early church was based on community; there was the church in Corinth, The church in Ephesus, The church in Philipe etc. We did find a name with a founder or denominational title. What you'll find the church took care of each other as family as people, not as a name. Healing and every other gift should flow in community. On of the things that has enriched my life is knowing believers from across the state across the globe. Each person has impacted my life so much from so far, why because the church is a more than a physical community but a spiritual community in Heaven at the right hand of God.
5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:5-7This leads me to ask the question "What can I give?" Everything shared or donated contributes to this healing. As I said in the introduction healing lead me in search of the presence of God. Still in search for the presence of God, Holy Spirit is renewing my mind to live in this Kingdom on earth.
"Where His presence and glory dwell no sin or sickness can coexist"The Holy Spirit was leading me to study healing. The above line opened my eyes to see that His presence was a pre requisite to healing. In turn this lead me to ask "What is your presence Lord?" The following writings document my journey to His presence. As I'm writing the Holy Spirit is reminding of when I got saved. I'd read the scriptures night and day unending. Holy Spirit revealed truth of Jesus Christ so profound. Intimacy has nothing to do with the crowd, but with God and I alone. My surroundings may never hear, but God hears and sees in this quiet place. I still have the desire to preach. After 17 years of being saved, the Lord allowed me to be satisfied with the better part. Thank you Holy Spirit Amen.
