The Healing Presence Of The Lord
by Fred Kelly Lesson 1 The Old Testament The healing ministry foundation

To launch these lessons we will look at some scriptures in the New Testament. Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him. NIV Luke 4:18-19 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 broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. KJV One of the most noticeable ways Jesus serves the people is by healing them. In Matthew it states that He healed all. Matt 8:16 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 healed all that were sick KJV One thing we see is that the power of the Lord was present to heal in Jesus life here on earth. He the Son of the living God was filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit empowers Jesus for His ministry, for the Spirit descended on Him at His baptism, Mark 1:10. It says in Luke that "the power of the Lord was present when Jesus was ministering." Jesus had introduced Himself to Israel as the one who came to heal for the Father had sent him. He was anointed by the Father to carry on in a greater way the ministry the Father had brought to Israel in the Old Testament. In Exodus 15:26 is where the Father declares that He is Jehovah-Rapha "the Lord who heals you". All the way through the Bible Father God and the Son of God's ministry is based upon these

parallel heavenly disclosure that healing is fundamental to the ministry and character of God. The Old Testament brings out the character and ministry of the Father God as one who is concerned about His people in all the every day health aspects of life for their Spirit, soul, and body. When we read through the Old Testament we see this in many scriptures. Such as these: Exodus 15:26; Leviticus 7:22-27; 11:1-15:33; 17:1-16: Psalms 147:3, and Isaiah 61:1-2. This shows us that the ministry Jesus did was an expansion of Father God's healing ministry it the Old Testament. Jesus would also go on to expand this ministry through those disciples that followed after Him even unto this day. It would be a development of the healing ministry in the power of Holy Spirit. The healing presence of the Lord is more evident that one might think. In the Old Testament; there are many examples of healing and the promise of health. For instance, in Exodus chapter 15; God gave His first promise to heal. This promise is for all; even unto this day. Father God names the conditions for them, the conditions were met, and we read in Psalm 105:37 "He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes." KJV The complete condition of health in the population of Israel continued as long as they met the Father's conditions. Then we see in Numbers 16:41-50 that sin was found in them. The presence of God was not in their life for the sons of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron. 14,700 die from the plague. When they met the conditions the plague was stopped, and God "Jehovah-Rapha" healed all. Again in chapter 21 they allow the presence of God to lift from them by allowing sin to take over. See verses 4 and 5. Their condition of health had remained good for 19 years, but they began to speak against God and Moses. In verses 6-9 we read: Num 21:6-9 And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, "We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived. KJV Note the phrase from verse 8, "It shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looks upon it, shall live." (The brass serpent being lifted up on a pole was a

When they look they were healed. Jesus took all our sickness upon Himself at the cross. promised in the Old Testament to those who who are obedient. Note that Abimelech was a heathen. God's plan was for His servants to minister physical healing to the unsaved. We also see that God sent a sickness of sorts the household of Abimelech (see Gen 20:18). it is a very fundamental to the healing ministry.35-61 all sickness is a curse of the law. God had closed up the wombs of the household of Abimelech. God already worked out His plan of salvation when Adam and Eve first sinned. etc. This was because they allowed the presence of God come and take control by looking to the Lord. We also see many promises of supernatural healing take place in the Old Testament. Here are some scriptures that talk about healing as a part of Christ's atonement: Isaiah 53:4-5. Old Testament story demonstrates that. even though Abraham had sinned by misleading Abimelech to believe that Sarah was his sister instead of his wife. According to Deuteronomy 28:15-22. Yet God struck Abimelech for Abraham's sake because Abraham was His prophet and His servant. by performing an act of obedience.type of Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross). with globulin to close up bleeding wounds. with antibodies to fight germs. Now we have better covenant (Hebrews 8:6) and the healing found in the Old Testament must come to us because of what Jesus accomplished for us on the cross. As soon as Abimelech found out that Sarah was already married. But God the Father according to Galatians 3:13. God had struck Abimelech with with sickness for taking Sarah as one of his wives. . said Christ Jesus has redeemed us from the curse of the law. even from the earliest of times. God has also given us healing through the natural process of the body. Abraham walked in faith and we must walk in faith. Then God instructed Abraham to pray for him and to minister healing to him. The Old Testament is full of many "fore-types" of what Jesus would do on Calvary. he returned her "untouched" to Abraham. These examples in the Bible give us a foundation that points to the healing ministry that Jesus fulfilled and developed and pasted on to believers today. God "built" our bodies with the ability to heal naturally. He created our physical bodies with the ability to heal and regenerate themselves. and it pertained to our physical healing. it comes both to the nation and to the individual. 27-29. Matthew 8:16-17. 1 Peter 2:24. Galatians 3:13. Let me share one of the Old Testament examples with you. This pertained to our salvation and restoration with God. Health is a blessing. Genesis 20:1-18 documents the healing of Abimelech. The Old Testament many some examples of healing.

Pray before you read these. they had no child and could not have one. Of course there are many we do not know about for this type of healing takes time to show the healing.] Please read these scriptures in the Old Testament and see how Jehovah-Rapha "the Lord who heals you" is at work.[While ministering in India my wife Alice and myself have ministered healing in the meetings for all kinds of sickness. We have seen many healed from this condition. also to give you insight. Our next lesson will be on the healing ministry of Jesus. We have prayed for many who were barren. but we also see the healing ministry coming to light. Allow Holy Spirit to help you understand.

I will share more of the different healing in lessons to come.

And each time that He used the word. He was in the beginning with God. Jesus was sent the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. the stronger His presence is within us. He was in the beginning and has existed for all eternity. and we see both Old and New Testament tie healing to the Word: John 1:1-2 In the beginning was the Word. and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region" (NKJV). God's presence became stronger. and dwelt among us. Even though He was God almighty. was filled with the Spirit. Luke 4:1 says. When Jesus was water baptized. "Then Jesus. Luke 4:14 says "Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee. In other words. being filled with the Holy Spirit. Jesus used the Word of God to over come the devil's temptations. This gives us an important principle: the more we please God. This is when Jesus was anointed with Holy Spirit. Jesus did all of this to obey Father God. and His obedience was pleasing to Him. we also need to be filled with the Spirit. This is what Jesus proclaimed about Himself and His ministry: . Father God openly anointed Him with His Spirit. Therefore. who is our role model. This same Jesus came and dwelt here on earth.by Fred Kelly Lesson 2 The New Testament The healing ministry of Jesus Jesus is the Word of God. only a few people suspected His deity until after His water baptism. NASU Ps 107:20 He sent His word and healed them. full of grace and truth. and we saw His glory. Jesus' ministry was launched. We see that Jesus. NASU John 1:14 And the Word became flesh. and the Word was with God. glory as of the only begotten from the Father. He did this to equip and commission Jesus for the mission that the Father sent Jesus to do here on earth. the Son of God. and the Word was God. and delivered them from their destructions. NASU The "Word" in these verses refers to Jesus. returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness" (NKJV).

just like Jesus did only what the Father told Him. which were come out of every town of Galilee. as He [Jesus] was teaching. We must have faith and we must praise and thank God in all. I want to please God don't you? Therefore. One might ask. He has sent Me to heal the broken hearted. He stayed in close contact with Him. in whom I am well pleased'" (KJV). just like Jesus did. In Luke 4:22-30. "Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing" (NKJV). "And there came a voice from heaven. He only did the will of the Father. because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. We must walk in the Spirit doing the Fathers will." but He directed the ministry mostly to the poor also to the ordinary people. "And without faith it is impossible to please God. 'Thou art my beloved Son. Jesus knew the word of God. because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him" (Heb . we must be controlled by God's Spirit instead of by our sinful nature. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. We must do only what the Father is doing. that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by." Then He (Jesus) closed the book. Jesus walked in a healing authority because He carried God's presence. to set at liberty those who are oppressed.Luke 4:18-21 "The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me. He never stepped out side of the boundaries of God's Word. and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them" (KJV). God said this in Mark 1:11. how does He get "the presence" to come? As we read through the Gospels. And He began to say to them. Jesus was in the presence of the Lord. I believe that this behavior. God's presence. Romans 8:8 tells us "those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God" (NIV). The power to heal was there. saying. His obedience pleased the Father. to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind. Luke 5:17 states: "And it came to pass on a certain day. the Old Testament prophets ministered mostly to those in authority. and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. we see that Jesus was always talking or praying to Father God. and Judea. designed to please and honor God the Father. we see that Jesus identified Himself as a prophet and He linked His ministry with the Old Testament prophets' healing ministry. was what ushered in God's presence. Jesus would minister to all "walks of life. By contrast. to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.

he had compassion on them and healed their sick" (Matt 14:13). John 4:46-54 Healing a royal official's son John 5:1-18 The lame man at the pool of Bethesda John 9:1-41 The man born blind John 11:1-44 Lazarus Matthew 8:5-13 The centurion's servant Matthew 9:27-31 Two blind men Matthew 20:29-34 The blind men of Jericho Mark 5:21-43 . he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. "And the power of the Lord was present to heal them. drawing near to God. As we walk in this.11:6). When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd. His presence becomes stronger and the glory of God comes." We must have compassion for those who have a need. this brings the healing power just as it was said in Luke 5:17. the crowds followed him on foot from the towns. more than a bull with its horns and hoofs" Ps 69:30-31. This will please the LORD more than an ox. "I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. Let us look at some scriptures that show Jesus ministering healing. "When Jesus heard what had happened. Hearing of this. just as Jesus did.

Jairus' daughter Mark 5:25-34 The women with the issue of blood Mark 2:2-12 Paralyzed man let down through the roof Mark 1:40-45 A leper Mark 1:29-31 Peter's mother-in-law Mark 3:1-6 Man with a wither hand Mark 7:31-37 Deaf and dumb man Mark 8:22-26 Blind man in Bethsaida Luke 7:11-17 Widow of Nain's son Luke 13:10-17 Women bent double Luke 14:1-6 Man with dropsy Luke 17:11-19 .

As a result. So we asked the Holy Spirit if this was of Him. Many people are followed us. (and adult man). We also needed to keep our mind stayed on the Lord and not on the difficulty. But. but he said that he had never even seen her before. God began to move mightily in this Gospel meeting. My wife and I and the other pastor prayed and commanded healing come to this man. I am going to share with you one of our adventures in God. Each mission trip is a month long. It was very dark. We minister healing in our meetings. how to minister healing. It was dark by the time we arrive in the area. A number of the men were drunk and shouting. The house. We speak to the need and believe God to heal. As we were walking a Hindu women called out from the gate to her home. which was held in someone's private house. So we had to walk to the house. His presence in our day to day lives increases when we have God's Word in our heart and not just in our mind. She asked us to come in to her home and pray for her son. On both sides of the narrow street there are open sewer ditches. many were baptized in the Spirit and many were healed that night. I asked the pastor we were with if he knew her. The streets were too narrow for us to drive our car on. One evening we planned to hold a meeting in a believer's home in the slum area out side of Coimbatore. And we were aware that it could be a trap to keep us from having a meeting. people come and ask to be healed. India. There were many people walking along that same street.Ten lepers Luke 22:47-51 High priest's servant Jesus sets the example for us. I . We see many healings and salvations on these trips. should we go in to this home? If we went. had been in an auto accident six months back. He began to speak God healed him. Those close to the open windows had their heads poked through wanting to see and hear all they could. and those who the Spirit sent Him to. praise God! We left and walked to the meeting. Take a high lighter (say light blue) and mark all the healing scriptures in your Bible. It was getting late so we were walking fast so we would arrive on time. and he had to be fed through a tube. Jesus healed those who came to Him asking to be healed. We found that the the woman's son. we knew that would make us late for the meeting. many were saved. so we tried to stay to the center of the street to avoid those open sewers. He had not spoken since. so there are many opportunities for ministry. and the yard and street in front of the house. At times Holy Spirit tell us to go and pray to minister healing. Jesus knew that the Father was willing to heal. so we did. All want to hear about the God that had just healed that man down the street. Read all the gospels and see how He ministered. were full of people. One example of this was when we were in India. the Holy Spirit told us to go in.

Our natural thought told us we should not go. . Our next lesson will be on letting Jesus heal.believe that the key to this whole miraculous situation was that we stopped and asked the Holy Spirit if He wanted us to go into that house. so we would have missed this divine appointment if we did not seek God for His will.

The key issue can be summed up in this question. we must look to the one who is the healer. it is so easy for many of us to focus on the problem.. let us also lay aside every encumbrance. the solution. But there are some things that we must consider because they will bring results and let Jesus heal. despising the shame. Jesus. and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. We must fix our eyes on Jesus. we are NOT focusing on Jesus. fixing our eyes on Jesus.. our Savior and Healer. even so must the Son of Man be lifted up. and resurrection bring life to those who look to Him and believe He is the Son of God. In fact. so that you may not grow weary and lose heart" (NAS). Rather. In fact. In order to get that. the author and perfecter of faith. This is a type of looking to Jesus. Remember that our goal is to to see healing. His death. and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. He drew a parallel between the bronze serpent being lifted up for healing and His being raised up on the cross. . so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life" (NASU).. came from looking to and identifying with Jesus Christ crucified. We may not ever understand why this is. Jesus spoke of this in John 3:14-15. Heb 12:1-3 admonishs us to do precisely that. and the sin which so easily entangles us.Lesson 3 Letting Jesus Heal There are many different reasons why people might not get healed. to get the person healed. both physical and spiritual. Numbers 21:6-9 tells the story of when God sent fiery serpents among the people because of their sin. The healing. so Moses interceded for them. "what are you putting your focus and attention on?" Some people continually look at the problem instead of looking to Jesus. Jesus referred to this in John 3:14-15. So. burial. ". they will live. Then if anyone is bitten by the fiery snakes and chooses to look at the statue of the snake.. It says. When we do this. They had to look to it in faith to receive their healing. and many died. God's response was to have Moses make a bronze serpent and lift it up where the people can see it. who is the solution to that problem. They came to Moses acknowledging their sin and repenting. "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness. our goal is to get rid of the sickness and related symptoms. just as the children of Israel looked to the bronze serpent that was lifted up on a pole. who for the joy set before Him endured the cross. who is lifted up to draw all men unto Himself (John 12:32). For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself. It is not to understand the sickness or focus on the symptoms. we need to learn to transfer our focus from the sickness to Jesus. Unfortunately. or to put our attention on the sickness.

bow down to Him giving Him the glory and honor due Him. Our faith brings healing. The woman saw Jesus in the multitude of people and she went after Him. It is the Father's will that healing come to those who look to Jesus in this manner. We need to invite Jesus to come close to us in faith. Worship Jesus. Here are the steps I advise you to follow: 1. fix your eyes on Him for He is the author and perfecter of our faith. and they end up keeping Jesus at a distance. Pray and talk to the Father in Jesus name. 8. He minister in different ways. for by His wounds you were healed" (NAS). smitten by Him. 5. "Letting Jesus heal" also means we must be willing to let Him do it His way. not as we think He should. 3. But He was pierced for our transgressions. 4. There is healing in the atonement that Jesus made for us. Go after Jesus. We must look to Jesus in faith in order to let Him heal us. He was crushed for our iniquities. The woman who suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years was healed because she knew that she would be healed if she could only touch the fringe of His cloak (Matthew 9:20-22). yet we considered Him stricken by God. we must touch Jesus and we will only know how to touch if we look at Him. Likewise. Most sick people want to be healed. And Isaiah 53:4-5 puts it this way. 6. This is not a good way to react. but central to all is looking to him in faith. blaming God for it. the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him. 2. But not all of them look to Jesus with such a desire to see Him. and afflicted. instead they look at the thing (or sickness) that has come upon them.I Peter 2:24 describes it this way. When Jesus is present. and by His wounds we are healed" (NIV). that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. 7. . Put your focus on Jesus instead of on the problem. Praise and worship The Father for His Son and the saving and healing power of the atonement gift that He gave to us who believe. When we do that. because it keeps the person from seeing Jesus as the healer that He is. His healing power is also present. As you read the Gospels you read about how Jesus ministered healing. Give Jesus the glory and honor due him. Press in to touch Him. "and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross. Some ask why God allowed the sicknesses come to them. the presence of the Lord comes in power. Look to Jesus. We worship Him. Ask Jesus to heal. "Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows.

Watch over your heart with all diligence. It is by being filled with Him. full of grace and truth" NASU. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. When we draw near to God. rather than the Word of God. She went flying back three or four feet and landed on her back -. "Submit therefore to God. and the Word was God. and the Word was with God. God had healed her. My son. James 4:7-8 says. and the power of God to heal was present. give attention to my words. His own life. The power of the Lord was there. His Word and Spirit. and dwelt among us. Let me share an example. South America. that Jesus Himself becomes our life. Jesus is the Word. And the Word became flesh. Until God's Word gains mastery over your mind. and we saw His glory. I preached on healing in the evening meeting. John chapter one tells us this: John 1:1. She was set free. She was out under the Spirit God for quite a while. In the beginning was the Word.14 1. One time I was ministering in Guyana. 14.let Jesus heal you. the power to heal will be there. prophetic words were spoken about healing to come. Jesus did. incline your ear to my sayings. NASU Do you want to receive life and healing from God? Then take time to find the words of scripture that promise these results -. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you" NASU. your mind will be swayed by feelings and by things you see or hear.no one caught her. the presence of the Lord was there among us. I had not touched her. Do not let them depart from your sight. A young woman came forward. this ushers in the healing presence of God. Then His presence and power surrounds us and the power of the Lord to heal delivers from the infirmities and pains. We have to let the word of God take mastery over our minds. We had been worshiping for over an hour then I gave the message. for from it flow the springs of life. I was just about three feet from her when the healing power of God hit her. . Proverbs 4:20-23 gives the most comprehensive directions on how to be healed. I walked toward her to lay hand on her and speak healing in the name of Jesus. glory as of the only begotten from the Father. The worship was powerful. I had a word of knowledge about someone that had AIDS. For they are life to those who find them and health to all their body.Letting Jesus heal comes more readily when we draw near to God. keep them in the midst of your heart.

Acts 1:1 says. The disciples ministered with delegated authority (Luke 9:1) from Jesus. Then He showed them how and when He healed the sick. 'you have heard from Me. nor bread.

And He said to them. We see the instructions He gave them in Luke 9:1-6: He called the twelve together. "But you shall ." After they returned to Jesus to tell of the mission trip he took them to Bethsaida to have a time of rest. And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to perform healing. And I believe (from Luke 5:17b) that He never did any ministry until the presence of the Lord was there in power.Lesson 4 The Healing Ministry Of The Disciples Jesus' ministry included training His disciples so they could continue His ministry after He went to the Father. stay there until you leave that city. nor a bag. instructed the disciples in what to do.

Before we look at some of the ministry of the disciples after Pentecost let us look at some observations from the Gospels: 1. Jesus sent them. In Acts 1:8 He said promised His power would be within them as they go. We need to look at whom. Viper's bite harmless Acts 28:3-6 10. what and where. Blind Saul.

at church. They spoke to the condition and the person they ministered to. outside meetings. all kinds of sicknesses. When Peter healed Aeneas "all who dwelt at Lydda and Sharon saw him and turn to the Lord. There were a few cases where the church did not grow. then I told him that he needed Jesus. but over all. Fear came on him. In some cases." He was in the back by the door. During the meeting two drunks made a lot of noise. I asked him to come up for prayer. landing on the ground under the power of the Spirit of God. The devil was using them to try to disrupt the meeting. He said. For instance. we prayed for the sick and a lot of people were being healed. then I called one of them to come up to the front." He got saved. After I preached. "I do I want Him." and .

We see here that the gift can strongly developed in some people. who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem. all the disciples continue on today. For example. The Old Testament prophets ministered in healing. That is because the Acts of the apostles. (Of course. Jesus spoke of signs following those who believe. "One day He [Jesus] was teaching. ministry must allow all spirit filled believers to move in the healing power. Jesus gave us the great commission in Matthew 28:18. The spiritual gift that we have becomes stronger and of greater value when we use it as often as we can. in Romans 12:6. See Ephesians 4:7-16. and healing is one of them. pastors. prophets.Lesson 6 How To Minister Healing Luke 5:17 says. Those that have less faith not as strongly developed. and the power of the Lord was present for Him to perform healing" (NASU). The Apostle Paul spoke of the "gifts of healing" as one of the gifts of Holy Spirit. Using what we have will cause it to be come strong and more developed. Jesus' command still applies to ministry today.20. Then Jesus had the disciples do it themselves. That is why Paul told Timothy to sir up the gift that was in him (2 Timothy 1:6). teachers. But there was one thing the believers needed to bring them in to the fullest of what God wanted for His people -this was Holy Spirit in them and working through them. After the day of Pentecost when Holy Spirit came. we need do what God has said. This book does not have a closing at the end of it. It is the Holy Spirit who enables us to carry the Lord's presence and anointing to heal. to use the gift with in us. It tells us that we must go to all nations to teach all that Jesus instructed.

Our motivations should be compassion and obeying God's word and to glorify God. so develop and cultivate the "patience" fruit of the spirit. on to some of the practical steps of ministering healing. Jesus sent the disciples out two by two in Luke 10:1. we must we must be sensitive to the prompting of the voice of Holy Spirit. Don't be afraid to ask questions of the one which needs healing.

"can you hear?" We need to keep our eyes open when we pray. We must do whatever the Spirit of God directs. Next. Some are attracted to the healing ministry for the wrong reasons. Take a look at your motivation to minister healing. You must realize that not all healing is instant. So how do we prepare to minister healing? First. Thus. when possible. check and see if something has happened after you pray. So. such as word of knowledge. Read Matthew 20:32-34. Most of the ministry in the book of Acts was done in teams. we must understand that it is God's will to heal. Now there will be some that move in a special healing ministry for God has ordained it. Also. talking to God and letting Him speak to us. Of course. word of wisdom. even if it is a bit different than we are used to. Jesus that with some blind men. There are times when the Holy Spirit will give us other gifts to enhance the healing ministry. we must be ready to do it with Him. we want to send them back to their . we must be ever ready to minister to others as the Holy Spirit leads us.

Let the doctor be the one to take them off of the prescription. send them back to their doctor instead of telling them to discontinue their medication or treatments. Then we switched gears and looked at faith and confessing our faith. Urge them to get a medical confirmation of their healing. it is important to have people who have been healed share their testimony publicly.

We discussed how all believers can minister healing and we looked at some practical steps in how to do this. and He has given his disciples (e. We saw that Jesus did not just heal the sick when He walked on the earth. Also. If they do not know the Lord as Savior ask them if they want to receive Him as Savior and to be baptize in the Spirit.
