Hey, I just want to let you all know that my book Healing Is For You! is now available in paperback from Amazon. It’s been on the market in paperback for years, selling in independent bookstores, at seminars, Bible schools, and through churches. And it went onto Amazon in digital format last year. But the only online retailer for the paperback was the publisher’s website, St. Ellen Press.
However, this week the book has come out in its fourth paperback edition, with a new look, new format, and lower price ($6.99) — and now it’s easy to order from Amazon.
It still offers a thorough study from God’s Word about healing for body and mind, and it still answers scores of the most troubling questions on the subject. Such as —-
Is it always God’s will to heal?
If it is God’s will to heal everyone, then why doesn’t everyone receive healing?
What part does medical science play in God’s healing plan?
Is it God who decides when each person dies?
How can I ever die if I keep getting healed?
If I don’t have faith for healing, can I get it somehow?
The book doesn’t promote any church doctrine. Rather it looks closely and carefully at God’s Word — especially the life and ministry of Jesus — who, according to the Word, is the only exact, perfect representation of God. It looks at God’s personal and perfectly-executed plan to get His people well and keep them well. It covers 9 separate means that God Himself has provided to get His healing power into us, and it looks carefully at 7 of the most common hindrances to our receiving that healing fully. It also offers a final chapter with more than 100 healing scriptures to use as medicine, just the way the Lord instructs us to do.
The Lord has graciously anointed and blessed Healing Is For You! to strengthen and encourage faith and help people receive healing from Jesus Christ. If you need healing, or you would like to better understand God’s healing plan so that you can help others get well, it will be a wonderful tool to help you move more fully into God’s loving, merciful plan to bless His people.
In my country, November is the month of “Thanksgiving.” But since harvest season lasts in many countries from September through November, a lot of people around the world focus on expressing their gratitude for the blessings they have received throughout the year.
One of the things I’m most grateful for is excellent health. It’s probably the most important thing for me personally of all the blessings I enjoy. And the main reason I’m able to enjoy excellent health is because the Lord Jesus Christ has offered me His own health and well-being to take the place of sickness and infirmity in my body — just the way He offers me His own righteousness to take the place of my sinfulness.
I’ve studied God’s Word diligently throughout my lifetime, and I’ve particularly studied what He has to tell us about healing, because the Lord called me into a healing ministry many years ago. As a result of what I’ve learned from His Word — and from 40 years of ministering His healing power to people with all kinds of bodily and mental afflictions — I wrote the book Healing Is For You! Although I originally wrote it almost 18 years ago, I have updated it three times in the past few years. The book is now in its third edition, and has been purchased and used by churches, Christian schools, and individuals to help stir and strengthen the faith of the sick and help them receive the healing they need from the merciful God who created their bodies and wants them well.
I’ve been blessed many times over by the testimonies of people who have read this book and received their faith so strengthened that they were able to reach out and receive from the Lord miraculous changes in their bodies and another chance at a life of health and wholeness. As a way of expressing my gratitude for my own health and for the health of the many who have received through the ministry of this book, I decided to offer it at a significant sale price throughout the month of November.
So from today, November 3, 2016, through November 30, 2016, Healing Is For You! will be on sale in its e-book format at the Amazon Kindle store for $1.99. That’s a savings of $2.00. You can follow the link to the Kindle store and learn more about the book. It answers a lot of the most common questions concerning healing and how to receive it from the Lord. And it includes many personal testimonies as well as a thorough study of God’s own Word on the subject.
If you do not own a Kindle, that is no problem, because right on the page where you purchase the book, Amazon offers the download of a free Kindle app for any device that you want to use.
If you’re facing illness in your own life, or you have a loved one who is, think about getting a copy of Healing Is For You! Because God’s healing really is for you, and He wants to help you receive it from Him today.
Just a note to let my readers know that “Healing Is For You!” is now an e-book. The book (now in its third edition) has been used for years in churches, in Bible and Christian schools, and in personal and group studies. It’s a handbook for anyone who wants help in receiving healing from the Lord — or for those who want to learn more about what God’s Word says concerning healing in order to help others.
The book answers such troubling questions as the following:
Is it always God’s will to heal everybody?
What part does medical science play in God’s healing plan?
Isn’t man promised only 70 or 80 years of life on earth?
Is it God who determines when each person dies?
How can I die if I keep getting healed?
If it’s God’s will to heal, why do so many people fail to receive healing from Him?
If I don’t have faith for healing can I get that faith somehow?
You’ll find the e-book version at the Amazon Kindle Store for $3.99. And if you don’t have a Kindle, you can download a totally free Kindle app for any device you use.
Check it out. If you don’t need it, purchase one for someone you love who does need it.
Well, this week, I finally took the plunge to learn how to set up a YouTube account and channel — and then start posting videos. I began with the audio of healing scriptures read by my father. Of course, I had to add still pictures and convert them into what YouTube calls a “movie.” It took a while, but I finally jumped through all the hoops successfully.
Unfortunately, on my old operating system and browser, some of the YouTube videos sound scratchy, and this one does as well. However, on my laptop, with a newer operating system and browser, it sounds great. So if any of you do hop over and listen to it, let me know what you found as far as sound quality.
Thanks a lot. I’m believing the Lord to use it to minister to many people.
(Exodus 15:26, Mark 5:25-34)
Her brow was wet with fever,
And her body wracked with pain.
She did not know just what was wrong,
But the symptoms would not change.
She knew she needed healing,
But she had no way to pay.
Who to turn to; who to trust;
Who to show the way?
A friend said to her, “Sister,
I know a doctor kind.
He cleanses lepers, makes lame walk,
And gives sight to the blind.
In fact, He’ll take on any case,
And cure it every time.”
“Oh, would that I could go to Him,”
She then was heard to say.
“But since I do not know His name,
How can I know the way?
And even if He’d take my case,
I simply cannot pay.”
“My dear, fear not,” her friend replied;
“There is no need to fear.
I’ll take you to Him right away;
He’s really very near.
His name’s Jehovah Rapha; He’s
‘The God that healeth thee.’
And because of His Son’s precious blood,
The healing – it is free!

Do you need healing? Are you struggling in your efforts to receive it? Do you feel surrounded and overwhelmed by the symptoms, the doctors reports, the unbelief of friends and family — crowding around you and choking off your faith?
The Psalmist in God’s Word felt exactly what you are feeling. He knew what it was like to be surrounded by so many enemies at once and hearing their taunting voices trying to convince him that God would not come through for him: “Lord, how are they increased that trouble me. Many there be that rise up against me. Many there be that say of my soul, ‘There is no help for him in God.'” (Psalm 3:1-2). But his response to that problem was to turn his attention to God. “But Thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory and the lifter of my head.”
Another of our great forefathers in the faith, King Jehoshaphat, faced the same kind of situation: The kingdom of Judah was facing annihilation as the mighty armies of three nations came against it. Jehoshaphat called the people to a fast, and as they stood before the Lord, he prayed, reminding God of His faithfulness and saying, ” … We have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon Thee.” God gave them a total victory the very next morning.
In both instances, these men of faith did exactly the same thing to find a solution to their problem: They took their eyes off the enemy and put them on God alone.
That action is exactly what the Lord instructs us to do in the midst of what looks like a hopeless situation and certain defeat. In Isaiah 41:10, He says, “Feat not, for I am with you. DO NOT ANXIOUSLY LOOK ABOUT YOU, for I am your God. If we have a God whose capable of defeating any enemy — and who has promised to do so — then we don’t need to look at the enemy, the problems, the imminent destruction. Where do we look? We look at our God.
There is a light from God — and from His Word — that will lighten you. It will burn through the thick fog of doubt and suffocating fear and infiltrate you with its illumination and warmth. It will lift your faith — enlarge your faith — increase your faith — strengthen your faith — and bring you the victory.
There’s an old gospel song from the 1800’s by William A. Ogden entitled “Look and Live.” The chorus of that song says,
“Look and live, my brother, live;
Look to Jesus now and live,
It’s recorded in His Word, hallelujah
That you only have to look and live.”
Yes, looking is the key. But looking the right direction is what makes the difference in whether that key works in the lock. We MUST look to Jesus and His Word. Hebrews 3:1 admonishes us to “consider Jesus, the High Priest of our profession.” That word “consider” in the original Greek means “exercise your mind on.” What a perfect picture of the meaning of meditation. We are to “exercise our mind” on Jesus. Think about Him — about how He never — never — never turned down any person who came to Him for healing. And then think about how He is “the same yesterday, today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8).
Hebrews 12:2 says, ” … Let us run with patience the race set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.” Jesus is the author of our faith, because He IS the Word of God. (John, chapter one). It is the Word that tells us of God and what He has done for us. Nothing but the Word can reveal to us the truth of God’s love, mercy, and healing, so nothing but the Word can create faith in us for those things. (Romans 10:17). And that same Word continues to feed and strengthen our faith if we will keep our eyes on it.
We keep our eyes on Jesus by keeping our eyes on His Word.
So don’t look around you at the forest, dark with unbelief and fear. Look up to Jesus, your Healer — and keep looking up for as long as it takes. He isn’t going anywhere. He’ll be right there when you look to Him, and He’ll stick with you until you have the full manifestation of your healing from Him.
As most of you know, I am not only a writer and teacher, but a minister of the Gospel as well. Over the past few weeks, some other faithful Christian ministers and I have begun to unite our efforts for the purpose of creating a brand new blog site that will be devoted to helping people receive healing from the Lord Jesus Christ. There are hundreds of thousands of people in the world today who are sick and suffering. Sometimes, they can get the help they need from medical science, but more often than not – especially in the case of truly life-threatening diseases and conditions – they can get only a brief respite from symptoms and long, painful, treatments that carry no promises of complete recovery.
I have been in ministry for nearly 40 years, and have been privileged to teach people the truth about how much God wants them well, and how He offers that healing through the finished work of Jesus Christ. I have seen God’s Word and the power of His Spirit deliver people from some of the most ghastly physical maladies and restore them to perfect health. So have the other ministers that I am united with in this effort. So have scores of great teachers and ministers of the Gospel from the last two centuries.
But people have to know the truth before it can set them free. So that means they have to know the truth about healing from the Lord before it can set them free from sickness and infirmity. This new site, “Healing From Jesus,” is dedicated to helping people KNOW – and helping them RECEIVE health from the Lord.
So if you know anyone who is in need of healing of any kind – for body, mind, emotions – or who needs deliverance from addictions or other debilitating conditions – please let them know about “Healing From Jesus.” Give them the opportunity to take advantage of the ministry offered on this new site.
