Part of Gospel Commission

Jesus not only PREACHED, -- He HEALED! "Jesus went about all their cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing EVERY sickness and EVERY disease among the people." (Matthew 9:35).

He commissioned His twelve disciples to HEAL, as well as preach. "Then He called His twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases. And He sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick." (Luke 9:1-2).

GOD ALONE has power to HEAL. However, Christ Jesus delegated this power to HIS MINISTERS whom He was sending out to preach! Every true minister of Jesus Christ -- if he is one whom God has called to the ministry -- DOES HAVE THAT POWER! Well, what a shame that most ministers today do not KNOW that they have been given that power, and most people who are sick do not know it either!

Later Jesus called 70 other disciples on a special mission. And He commanded them to "HEAL THE SICK" where ever they went. (Luke 10: 1, 9).

His final parting COMMISSION for all ministers of the gospel, after His resurrection, just before ascending to heaven, was this: "Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature . . . And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name . . . they shall lay hands on the sick, AND THEY SHALL RECOVER," Mark 16:15-18. Now that's a PROMISE! Jesus said they "SHALL recover."

For The Christian TODAY!

After the New Testament Church was started, the apostles and evangelists continued to HEAL THE SICK as well as preach the gospel!

Almost immediately after the Day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came, Peter and John, in the name of Jesus Christ, healed the cripple, lame from birth. (Acts 3:1-11). As a result, they were thrown into prison, but after they were released they met with the other disciples and prayed earnestly to God, saying: "And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, by stretching forth thine hand to HEAL." "And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spake the Word of God with boldness," Acts 4:29-31.

Afterward so many were healed, that even Peter's shadow passing over the sick resulted in their healing, THRU GOD'S POWER. (Acts 5:15). Those who came to these ministers of Christ, for healing by PRAYER to GOD, "were HEALED, every one." (Acts 5:16).

Philip went down to Samaria, and the sick were HEALED! (Acts 8:5-7). Thru Paul's ministry, God healed the sick. The demand on his time became so great, and many at a distance whom Paul was unable to visit, wanted healing, and so God honored a SPECIAL MEANS -- Paul anointed and prayed over pieces of cloth -- handkerchiefs and aprons -- and sent them to these requesting prayer for healing, and THEY WERE HEALED! (Read of it in Acts 19:11-12).

Now God is the SAME today -- and hundreds today are being healed by that very method, given to us in the word of God! In my office we hold a daily prayer service. All letters requesting special prayer are brought in, and members of my staff join me in interceding with God for each one. All who ask prayer for HEALING are given special consideration and prayer. And, since it is impossible for me to visit each of these in their own homes, I anoint a handkerchief in each case, following the Apostle Paul's example, and this is mailed to the one who is sick.

Contact Mr. Billingsley today and ask to be put on the Church's Prayer Request List and receive your anointed cloth.
