A Trail of Tears . . . sort of
Updated: Mar 1
Walk with Yah is not just about deliverance. It's about . . . how do I put this? Well it's about walking with Yah. How do you live out your day in regards to your spiritual beliefs (a.k.a. halakah)? It's about being delivered and living out the bible with character, spiritual gifts, blessing others, etc. Because your spiritual beliefs should affect your daily life if you believe them enough. Now I'm not saying you should go and cram your beliefs and theology on everybody within earshot as that is the Ruach haKodesh's/Holy Spirit's job (John 16:8). We can inform people but we ourselves cannot convict them (1 Corinthians 3:6-9). Even when doing deliverance my clients have to want to come to me - they have to want deliverance for themselves as I can't make them want it for themselves. I have to be careful not to want their deliverance more for them than they do for themselves.
Ugh. That's not what this blog is supposed to be about so excuse me as I went off on a rabbi trail. Lol. What this blog is supposed to be about is a trail of tears . . . sort of. What I was starting to say is that we need to be living out our faith as it's not just a mental exercise. So wherever I go I pray over people many times. If I see somebody that has a physical ailment I will often go up to them and ask if I can pray over them to be healed. As you can imagine this sometimes leads to a trail of tears . . . tears of Joy!
While shopping I sometimes have a Walmart ministry (like many others I'm sure). I saw this lady and her husband both in the little store scooters. I asked her if I could pray over her and she graciously accepted the offer. I often times approach people being overly-nice as sometimes people with sicknesses are hurting. Plus if I approach them the wrong way they may not be open to what I have to offer (and sometimes they aren't anyway but I try regardless). Anyway this lady had some bone-on-bone action in one of her knees causing more pressure to be put on the other knee so she was expecting for the other kneed to be operated on as well. A few minutes of prayer and her pain was gone! Praise Yeshua!
As you can see here you don't even have to be dressed in a suit for this to happen. A short time thereafter I was in an office with a many people I didn't know. At this point I'm somewhat 'trained' to look for people I can bless. I mean this is what the Bible says in Matthew 10:8 right? "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons". Again this lady allowed me to pray over her. If I recall correctly she may have had fibromyalgia. You'll have to excuse me as sometimes there is so much that goes on I forget the details. In any case, a few minutes later she didn't need the cane anymore. I didn't have to yell, nobody around us knew what had happened, and she walked away with a fresh revelation of who Yeshua was to her.
Lastly, for now anyway, I was at Aldi's and as I was leaving I saw two ladies that were together that both had canes with one having a brace on her knee. I think she too was in a situation where there was no cartilage. I prayed but this time I asked the Ruach haKodesh/Holy Spirit if He had anything He wanted me or her to do. Sometimes He may have me pray a particular way or have the person do something (I'm guessing just as a step of faith/obedience). In this case the Ruach/Spirit told me that there was a family matter that had to be resolved. I shared this and she confirmed as she repented/confessed right there on the spot. As I continued praying she could feel the Ruach/Spirit come up her leg very gently and Poof! All the pain was gone! She actually gave me a kiss she was sooo thankful to Yeshua/Jesus.
So a point here is that sometimes yes we actually have to confess and repent for some of our afflictions to leave us (in addition to commanding them to go). I, myself, like the instantaneous healings but Yah/God does it differently many times. I think one reason He does that it to just to remind me He is in control, lol, and I'm very fine with that. I really am. Sometimes the healing may not come for days. However, I also feel that in some cases when healing prayers don't work that deliverance may be needed. The enemy may have a legal right that needs to be removed first.
I know there are many people that believe that Yeshua/Jesus died for the sins of the world. Well that is true He did as it states in 1 John 2:2 "And He Himself is an atoning offering for our sins, and not for ours only but also for all the world" but the bigger truth is that we also know that everybody in the whole world will not be saved (Matthew 7:14-14).
Why is that? That's because not everybody applies His blood to their lives and doesn't live out HIs teachings (which shows true faith as described in James 2). Sometimes a general deliverance prayer renunciation doesn't remove all the demons from us. Sometimes we have to go deeper to find the exact offense that allows the enemy to keep attacking us.
Why is this? I'm not totally sure but I think in part its because if we learn that a general prayer will take care of all our problems we may not be so inclined to act righteously if the cost is so low. Yeshua/Jesus died for us. Yah/God gave us His very best. Praise Him!
Okay I'm getting back on track . . . again. So today's lesson is that because if you have the Ruach/Spirit in you, you too can bless & heal people - you too can operate in the gifts of the Rauch/Spirit and walk with Yah!
Wanting His Character, Peace, and Blessings for YOU!
