Receiving Healing Power
Topic: Power of Disabilities

And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. (Acts 3:5 KJV)

In Acts 3, there was a cripple man at the gate of temple and begged to receive something from the people to live. Although it doesn’t tell us specific items that this beggar asked for, we understand that he needed some help to put his life back together. We’d probably know that this man was having a hard time to seek some assistance from his community. Most people, especially Pharisees, wouldn’t do something with him because he’s filthy and mess.

But not Peter as he crossed by the temple. Although Peter didn’t have money, he gave this man something greater than the gold or silver. He received Jesus Christ in his life and the power of healing. Because of Peter, this poor man became a spiritual rich from being poor. Many people may miss the opportunity to meet the beggar and became spiritual poor.

Even though we have many Christian churches in America, it doesn’t mean that we are secured spiritually. Some of mega churches may act like the rest of people in Acts 3. We understand many people go to the worldwide healing services to get healing in physically, spiritually, mentally, and financially, but their requests may not be answered. We cannot receive the healing until we know Jesus Christ and have built relationship with Him.

Peter didn’t ask Jesus to heal the man immediately (see Acts 3:6). Instead, he explained to this beggar that he didn’t money to drop in the offering plate. But Peter didn’t stop there. He had something to give to this beggar that was far greater than money—that was introducing him Jesus Christ. Then Peter lifted the beggar up to begin the healing process (v. 7).

Money doesn’t cure your illness nor going to healing services. The only way that we can receive the healing in our lives is through our personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Spiritual Disability
Topic: Power of Disabilities
And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? (John 9:39-40 KJV)

Many people may tell you that being a disabled person means that some parts of her or his body cannot function right. Or some people may ask disabled man that if he is normal. What is “normal” anyway? If the person doesn’t have some kind of disabilities, is it means that he’s normal? In fact, every person in the world will become disabled. One of agencies said that by 2010, there would be about thousands people will turn to 60s and become disabled.

Since we understand that we cannot prevent from becoming disability, we must understand that we all have spiritual blindness or spiritual disability. This mean that we hardly escape from darkness and see the truth of light that comes from God. But we can escape from it before we’d die. Roman
3:23 tells us that we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Although we are made in the image of God, we were sinners—blinded from seeing the truth of God.

Read John 9:39-40. Jesus tried to set this former disabled man free from the darkness of his soul; and He may try to convict the Pharisees’ souls, too. John 3:3 says that we have to born again to see or to access the kingdom of God. We have to born in spirit to break the prison chains in the darkness of our souls. We cannot stop to being spiritual disabled without to receive your birth right from the Holy Spirit.

Although we cannot change who we are in physically, we can change our hearts into spirit-filling of our souls, spirits, and minds. In II Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” We have the power to overcome any obstacle that blocks our way to access to our Heavenly Father’s lap. We have God who loves us unconditionally, so we love our people no matter how they look, racial background, or how religiously they are. We have the command from our Father to reach the lost souls to Him with the love of God. Also, we have the sound mind, so we can judge ourselves what is right from wrong. Before God judges us, we have the chance to look ourselves over what we’ve done wrong.

Would you like to set free from being spiritual disabled? Although you cannot set free from physical situation, you can set free from your spiritual blindness and see the light of truth. Invite Jesus Christ to your life. It’s just simple. If you are Roman Catholicism or other religion system, or maybe you addict to something, such as pornography, cigar, or anything that draw yourself away from God, you can set free from these chains by accepting Jesus Christ. You can say good-bye to Satan forever. And begin to walk to your Heavenly Father, who began to search for you to come into His lap to love and care for you.

 

Psalm 27:10 says, “When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.”

Don’t Blame God for Anything
Topic: Power of Disabilities

Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. (John
9:16 KJV)

Have you ever complain to God for anything? Have you feel like if nobody cares about your disability or illness? Of course, we all have experienced in our life with depression. We may have decided to give up our life and mad at God or someone with our situations. If you are in physical condition, you may hear many negative things that come into your mind and decide to follow what your mind said.

Let’s look why the Pharisees decided to mad at Jesus’ work on the Sabbath Day (Saturday). They were making difficult to the situation. Remember, Pharisees were trying to obey all the laws in the first five books of the Old Testament. If we read following verses after John 9:16, we see that Pharisees were making more complicated situations to both Jesus and the man, who was blinded.

Why is that? Pharisees were trying to accuse Jesus for disobeying God’s law on Sabbath. As we read through all four gospels, they were trying to succeed to accuse Jesus by justifying God’s laws. We, too, sometimes believe that God needs our help by adding our ideas to His. This is what many today’s churches set in their minds on and it’s pretty sad.

Jesus doesn’t need our help, except what He gave us to do. He didn’t need Pharisees’ help to heal the blind man. Don’t blame God about why the cripple man heals on Saturday. Exodus 16:29 says that God gave us a Sabbath. He wants us to rest upon Him on the end of our work for the week. It means that we can energize our strengths for the following week by resting upon God’s care. If He wants to heal somebody on Saturday, there is no reason why we question to Him. We need to learn close our mouths when God decides to do something in our individual life.

If God doesn’t heal you physically, it means that He wants to begin to heal your inner being first and wants to use your physical situation in a greater way. Don’t deny yourself for not receiving physical healing. Or don’t just go to Evangelical Christian Healing Services for that, but believe and trust God in faith that He has a greater plan in your life.

Who Made the Disabled Person?
Topic: Power of Disabilities
And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? (John 9:2 KJV)

In John 9, Jesus’ disciples asked a question as they passed by the street with Him and saw a blind man. Their question to Him was “…who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?” In other words, who can he blame for his disability? Is God? Is his parents? Is his ancestors?
We may know the one or two (or perhaps more) of reasons the person who come as disabled. First ones is through car accident or misusing the drugs. If the person drives his car like a wild man, there is a good chance to have either serious death or serious brain/body damage. In fact, most people who are in the rehabilitation services came from car or other physical accident. Second is through birth. For example, if the mother of unborn child miscarried her baby in her womb, there is a good chance that the baby would come out as paralyzed. One of the examples is when the mother of the child constantly smoke cigar while she has an unborn child. This cause the newborn may have breathed problem and may end with death.
As we are getting older, we, too, will become disabled permanently until we’d come to end of earthly life. Although we’d dislike to hear this, but we all will face the dead bed sometimes in our lives. God didn’t start to make us as disabled being. He doesn’t like to end of our lives. Before Adam chose to disobey God’s command, He intended let human beings to live forever. Because the sin entered into the world through Adam and Eve, God decided to let human being to live on the earth no more than 120 years. Also, God gave let Adam and Eve face their consequence to live on the earth. That’s where reducing aging process began. The Bible tells us that Adam lived his life for 950 years before his last breathe (Genesis 5:5). Then, we read in Genesis 5-11 that aging began to decreasing.
This doesn’t mean we all have limited life or disabled life because the first Adam. No! If we blame Adam for our sinful lives, then we actually blame God. We all have sinned (Romans 3:23), not because of Adam, but because it’s our mistakes and fall to sinned. Also, we cannot blame God for our physical limitation. I have physical disability since the birth, but I cannot blame God for who I am. I tried to ask myself why questions, but they don’t effect to me. I have to accept who I am. I cannot ask God to change my body right now, but believe that I can do anything through Jesus Christ, who gives me strength (cf. Philippians 4:13).
Although His disciples tried to blame for somebody on the man’s blindness, there was a greater purpose of why he has no vision. Jesus said in John 9:3-5,” Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
Are you tired of your life? Don’t try to change who you are, but accept it. God created you and me just as He wanted, so that He can use us for greater purpose. There is no other gods who could give us life with the great plan.
