Mark 9:17 – 27
Healing Is God’s Will
In the Healing School where I taught, there were some individuals who came and brought a little boy. I think he was about 5 or 6 years old and had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. He had been in and out of a couple of the best clinics in the world. Nothing against them, but they just said they couldn’t help him, that there was nothing they could do. He had been through all kinds of treatments, and they said, “Well, just enjoy the last days you have. There’s nothing that can be done, nothing medical science can do.”
As a last resort, they came out to Brother Hagin’s ministry, because they knew about his
testimony that he had been healed, and about the Healing School. We were in there with them, and they stayed with us for week after week. Both the man and the woman were attorneys. They said their young son had cancerous growths in his brain, in his head, and all over his body.
Isn’t the devil a sorry, mean devil? I tell you what, when he gets thrown into hell, I’m not going to shed a tear, because he’s got it coming. What a sorry devil. He is the destroyer, the killer, and the thief.
We laid hands on that child’s head and cursed that cancer, commanded it to die and dry up, and spoke healing over the boy. Well, he didn’t look any better. He still had all of the symptoms, and he was still jaundiced and yellow, thin and starving.
His parents took him home; they lived several states away. I found out later that they went home and started a healing class in their house. Now, the boy still looked like he was at death’s door.
They had to pick him up and carry him around. The doctors said he may not live out the week, but they invited people to come to their house, and they proclaimed that he was healed and it was God’s will to heal him. When you looked at him, he looked anything but healed. But they preached it week after week, and they proclaimed it.
And he didn’t die. He got a little better. Oh, glory to God! They sent me a picture of him about 18 months later. He was smiling, and his hair had grown back. He looked like a normal 7- or 8-year-old boy. They said he was healed. He was eating well, and he had gained his weight. He was not having the pain. Glory to God. The doctors said they don’t understand it, but he’s doing wonderfully.
And I thought, “What if they had waited?” What if they had said, “We’re going to wait until we see and prove…” That’s not how it works. You believe, then you see. You decide the Bible is true even though it doesn’t look like it in your life. It doesn’t feel like it in your life, but it’s true.
Let God be true and every man a liar. This is true. This is the will of God. I don’t care what happened to them, or what someone said, or what a preacher said, or who wrote a book. The Word of God is the will of God, and that is what I’m holding to.
The Word of God cannot fail and does not fail. We can believe the Word no matter what. Can you be broke as broke can be and still believe that it’s God’s will for you to be prosperous? Can you believe it? Yes, you can. Can you feel powerless, and dumb, and unfruitful, and unsuccessful, and still believe you are more than a conqueror though Christ? You’ve been made the righteousness of God in Christ, and He always causes you to triumph. What if you start believing that and saying it? It will come to pass in your life.
