“FEAR OUR RESPONSE”

1) Recognize fear:

Recognize that fear is not of God.

John 10:10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

Jesus came that we would have life. Fear causes people not to live. People who fear are paralyzed by it. They can’t do what God has called them to do. It causes people to look inward.

Recognize if you are stopped by a force of terror or fear. Fear has symptoms. Some are panic, worry, anxiety, heart rate increases, and much more. These are not from God. He does not put these things on us.

If you have a fear or phobia say so. Once you recognize these fears you can become ready to receive the solution that only God can provide.

2) Resist fear

with action

James 4:7
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Ephesians 6:13
Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].

Proverbs 28
 1 THE WICKED flee when no man pursues them, but the [uncompromisingly] righteous are bold as a lion.

Be bold as a lion & stand against the fear that satan tries to put on you.

Isaiah 35:4
say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.”

Never give up! Have the spirit to fight back. Don’t yield to your fears. Don’t give up hope of victory.

3) Fight fear with the word

The living word, what does the bible say?

The word says a lot about fear. Fear not is in the bible in many places, at least 100 times from Gen. to Rev.

God spoke to Abraham and said, “Fear not” (Gen. 15:1).

God spoke to the children of Israel and said, “Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord” (Ex. 14:13).

The great patriarch David said, “Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil” (Ps. 23:4).

Here are just twelve of the precious promises you can use in gaining victory over fear:

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Tim. 1:7).

“Ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s” (Deut. 1:17).

“Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage” (Josh. 10:25).

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; He also is become my salvation” (Is. 12:2)

“O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong” (Dan. 10:19).

“For He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways” (Ps. 91:11).

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear” (Ps. 46:1,2).

“I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Heb. 13:5).

“The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me” (Heb. 13:6).

“Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows” (Mt. 10:31).

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee” (Is. 26:3).

“Fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings” (Is. 51:7).

4) Fight fear with prayer

a heart to heart talk with God

Like David:
Psalm 64:1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.

Dan. 9:3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:

Phl. 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Rom 12:12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer…

5) Put your faith in Jesus and what He did at the Cross for you.

Jn. 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

1 Jn. 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Jn. 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.

Jn. 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

Fear is no respect of no one! We all face it at one time or another, but how we handle it is the question.

When you honestly do your part to conquer fear, God will work through the Holy Spirit to do the rest.

“Healing for Today?”

Here is just some thoughts and scriptures about healing.

David said, “I cried unto the Lord & He healed me”. Ps. 30:2

Ps. 107:20 He sent His word & healed them.

Ps. 103:2-3 All His benefits, includes healing.

Mal. 4:2 He will arise with healing in His wings.

Healing fulfilled:

Mat 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:

Mat 8:17

That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare [our] sicknesses.

A few people healed:

1) David cried unto the Lord & He healed him. (Ps. 30:2)

2) Those who fear Him, keep His covenant, & does His commandments (will get the benefits in Ps. 103)

3) He healed for the sake of those who brought the sick unto him.

Centurion’s servant = Matt. 8:5-1

Peter’s Mother-in-law = Matt. 8:14-15

The rulers daughter = Matt. 9:18-26

The friends = Mark 2:4-12

4) Jesus could not do mighty works because of their unbelief, you must believe.

More:

Matt. 23:25 He healed all who came unto Him.

Matt. 8:1-4 He healed the Leper by His word – He said, “I will”.

Matt. 8:15-16 He cast out demons & healed them.

Mat. 9:1-8 He healed & forgave the Paralyzed man.

Matt. 9:32-33 Healed the dumb man.

Matt. 12:15 Healed them all.

Matt. 20:34 &22-23, Healed the blind.

There are many, many more examples.

Exd 15:26

And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I [am] the LORD that healeth thee.

His word is health to us:

Pro 4:20

My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

Pro 4:21

Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

Pro 4:22

For they [are] life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

Why does it say in Is. 53:5 we are healed and in 1 Peter 2:24 We were healed. 

In Is 53:5 it is a now healing. In the old testament they had to do sacrifices regularly. It could never put healing in the past or behind them. Because Jesus had not yet come. BUT…

After Jesus came now we can say:

 We are healed. Past, it is done & always will be that way. Today can’t change what Jesus did. No more sacrifice for it. “IT IS FINISHED”. (We must receive it)

Malachi 3:6 “I am the Lord, I change not” 

What He did, He will do again. Rom 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

Satan is the originator of sickness. Job 2:7, Luke 13:16, Acts 10:38

But what about after Jesus was off the earth?

Jam 5:13

Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

Jam 5:14

Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

Jam 5:15

and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Act 3:1

Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, [being] the ninth [hour].

Act 3:2

And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

Act 3:3

Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

Act 3:4

And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.

Act 3:5

And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

Act 3:6

Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

Act 3:7

And he took him by the right hand, and lifted [him] up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

Act 3:8

And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

1Cr 12:9

To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

Act 5:15

Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid [them] on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.

Act 5:16

There came also a multitude [out] of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.

Act 8:7

For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed [with them]: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.

Mat 10:1

And when he had called unto [him] his twelve disciples, he gave them power [against] unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

There are many other scriptures. 

YES, HEALING IS FOR TODAY!!!!
