Jesus Heals a Boy with an Unclean Spirit

And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, 15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. 17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. 18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting  .Matthew 17:14-21  

In verse 20 Jesus begins His response to the Disciples by telling them it was their UN-BELIEF that caused their inability to heal the lunatic boy. NOT because this Spirit only came out by prayer and fasting! The prayer and fasting is to help with THEIR UN-BELIEF. This trains up our flesh! It does not change the sickness or disease nor does it move God!!! He has already provided the healing, we need to appropriate what HE has given us.

You have all the power and authority living inside you as your inheritance and it is because of your UN-BELIEF that you do not use it. You do not need to pray and fast to heal you just need to BELIEVE!! You need to KNOW the truth of who you are and what you have. Most are still begging and asking God to move the mountains and heal the sick, when He told us to do it!

How’s your believer? When is the last time you healed the sick?

 James 5:14-15

 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:  And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

The word ‘save’ in this verse is translated to ‘sozo’ which means – healed, prospered, forgiven and set-free.

Matthew 10:8   Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.


So many are sick and in need. Connie has prayed for and seen many miraculous  healings.

She will be speaking, sharing the Good News, and praying for the sick in January – Details to be posted soon.

Come for healing, be empowered, healed and set free.

~What a great way to start the New Year. ~
