The Record-Breaking Healing Is Here Conference

The 2018 Healing Is Here Conference was just awesome! It broke records with the highest number of first- and all-time attendees! The word is definitely out there: healing is here, it’s for today, and it’s ours right now!

Daniel Amstutz and Carlie Terradez―the dynamic duo―delved into intense periods of ministry training (AKA “marinating in the Word”). They taught on our rights and authority as believers and how our faith becomes effective as we acknowledge every good thing in us (Philem. 6). Their training was hands-on, and they encouraged us, as carriers of the King of glory, to minister to and pray for each other. You could feel their passion right off the bat as they declared their hatred for sickness and what it does to people.

Andrew followed up on this by stating that he had only been sick once in fifty years, which is pretty impressive! Not many have that kind of testimony. And this, he said, is because he will not tolerate sickness in his body―the same way he wouldn’t go out and commit adultery. He declared that “we must hate what God hates!”

Barry Bennett spoke about the culture and language of the kingdom. We have been translated from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God’s dear son (Col. 1:13), and there’s no sickness in God’s kingdom. Hallelujah! Christ died to redeem us from every consequence of sin, including sickness. That revelation turned the light bulbs on in people’s hearts, and they were ready and determined to take back everything the devil had stolen from them.

Audrey Mack’s ministry and testimonies were powerful! As someone who overcame cancer—among other issues—Audrey knew what she was talking about. Her boldness was reflected in her message: “The violent take it
by force!”

And that’s not all!

We had the pleasure of welcoming Randy Clark to Healing Is Here for the first time! A key player in the Toronto Blessing, Randy Clark has been used mightily by God to set captives free all over the world. The room was packed and overflowing with expectant people, who were ready to see the supernatural and miraculous manifest before their eyes. And, of course, they were not disappointed.

The Thursday Healing School session was also packed, as the keynote speakers came together as a panel and answered questions from
the audience.

Practical, interactive workshops took place in between sessions, and many went on their first street ministry ever. Prayer ministry was also available after each session.

Over the course of four days, sickness and disease were exposed as the works of the Enemy. The devil was put to shame as many were saved, filled with the Holy Spirit, healed, and delivered. The power of the Holy Spirit was indeed present to heal, and testimonies abounded on site and from online viewers! We saw people coming out of wheelchairs―one person hadn’t walked in ten years! Others were healed of multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, paralysis, arthritis, severe pain, a lump in the breast, pinched nerves, COPD, digestive issues, emotional disturbance, deafness, cancer, carpal tunnel syndrome, a missing tooth, blindness, metal screws and bars in the body, and much more! There was a collection of wheelchairs, canes, and medical equipment no longer needed―a trophy of God’s healing power!

One lady had a healing journey, during which she received healing from a different condition each day of the conference: extreme pain from arthritis, T2 compressed fracture, cramps in feet and elsewhere, and cancerous neck tumors! Amazing!

If you missed one or all of these life-changing sessions or wish you could hear more of the conference testimonies, you can view videos from Healing Is Here 2018 on Charis Bible College’s YouTube channel. For your convenience, you can order copies of the CDs or DVDs or request prayer by calling our Helpline at 719-635-1111, Monday through Friday from 4:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. (MT).

You’ll find that the message is really almost too good to be true, and you won’t want to keep it to yourself.

Running by Faith

“The Bible says I will run and not grow weary,” I told my doctor. “I’m a runner, so I’m going to run.”

He looked at me—a person who had had already undergone foot surgery, X-rays, a painful cortisone shot, and now, custom orthotics—and said, smiling, “You can bike and not grow weary. You can swim and not grow weary.”

He was being patient with me. He and I both had seen my X-rays; the unnatural curvature of the bones had had years to move and to set in that position. He tried his hardest to convince me that I’m not cut out to be a runner. My feet were not runner’s feet.

But I knew in my heart that God’s Word is true, regardless of the shape of my bones or the tightness of my tendons. If God says that I can run and not grow weary (Is. 40:31), then it has to be true. I decided that I would believe Him and His Word.

My doctor is a good doctor and a Christian. I had no doubt that he wanted the best for me. But he was working in the knowledge that he had. He didn’t know what God’s best for me was. That’s what I love about teachers like Andrew Wommack—they understand that God’s best is far greater than the world’s view of what’s best. Andrew teaches that it’s God’s will for us to be healed. It takes a lot of guts to teach something that flies in the face of so much religious doctrine and so many excuses as to why Christians are
still sick.

But it’s amazing to me that people can still fight this truth when there is so much evidence in the Bible that it is always God’s will to heal. In his book God Wants You Well, Andrew says, “In the Gospels alone, there are seventeen times where Jesus healed all of the sick that were present. . . . Jesus did heal them all, and He hasn’t changed” (p. 81). Hebrew 13:8 tells us that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (New Century Version).

What this means to me is that it is forever God’s will to heal. So, even though I sat in that doctor’s office with valid foot problems, it didn’t mean that I had to stay there—or stay seated! If I truly wanted to, I could run.

Which leads me to the next point: once we know it’s God’s will to heal, we must act on that knowledge. Knowing something but not doing anything about it is useless. On the Gospel Truth broadcast, Andrew says, “Sometimes we’re afraid to act because it’s just not traditional; it’s not the way that other people are telling you to do it. . . . You’ve got to get beyond that. . . . You’ve got to start using your body as a weapon against the devil and start acting healed to the degree that you can.”

So, I ran by faith. I left that doctor’s office with nothing noticeably different about my feet. But my heart knew the truth: by His stripes, I’ve been healed (1 Pet. 2:24). I signed up for another 5K shortly after that visit. Now, I run regularly (well, regularly-ish), and I take care of my feet. With each step, my feet continue to grow stronger. Sometimes the familiar symptoms try to come back, but knowing who I am in Christ Jesus and speaking out His Word inevitably overrides the symptoms. And then I run another mile and another mile . . . (or I run home to the water faucet!).

Above All Things

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

3 John 2

When John penned these words by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, he did so to show us that God places your well-being as His priority. He says in this verse that “above all things,” He wants you to be in health. What a straightforward and positive truth. God wants you to experience His very best, and His best for you includes complete health and well-being. Complete health means that every organ and system in your body is functioning exactly as God created it to function. Your body is the temple of God, and disease should not be allowed to exist in His home. Therefore, the symptoms of pain and discomfort need to leave your body. And complete well-being means that your mind is strong, and your thoughts are coherent and brilliant. You are sound, stable, and in control. Physical, mental, and emotional health are part of the “abundant life” Jesus said believers would and should experience
(John 10:10).

So, how did God make provision for our health? It all happened at the cross. Scripture tells us that at the same time Jesus took our sins, He also took our infirmities, bore our sicknesses, and carried our pains.

Isaiah 53:4 says, “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.”

This is an amazing picture of God’s love toward you and me. Jesus knew the horrors and pain He would experience, yet He still went to the cross. And He did so willingly. He was taunted to come down from the cross, but His love for you and me kept Him up there until He cried out, “It is finished” (John 19:30). When Jesus cried, “finished,” He was actually fulfilling Isaiah’s prophecy mentioned above. Matthew 8:17 says, “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.”

God’s plan for our redemption was complete. He left nothing out. Jesus took all that was wrong and freely gave us everything that is right. On the cross at Calvary, Jesus took our sin; therefore, when we place our faith in Him as Savior and Lord, we freely receive His righteousness. Likewise, on the cross, Jesus took our weaknesses, sicknesses, and pains so that we can receive health from the finished and complete work of the cross! And if He took our sicknesses, we shouldn’t keep them!

God’s love for us is the central theme of His Good News. The moment we accept Christ, God has given us “all things that pertain unto life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3). It only makes sense that this would include physical, mental, and emotional health. Those are some pretty important things that pertain to life and godliness!

Scripture plainly paints a picture that God wants you well, so why isn’t everybody healed? Watch Andrew all this week on the Gospel Truth broadcast as he tackles this subject. He’s entering his seventh week of teaching God Wants You Well, so if you haven’t been watching from the beginning, I encourage you to go back and view the previous broadcasts at http://www.awmi.net/video/.

Jesus took your pains, sicknesses, and weaknesses so that you would be free of them. So, walk in the health He has given to you. He wants this for you—above all things!
