Go into all the world and preach the Gospel... Mark 16:15

Being Not a Forgetful Hearer


“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: for he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” James 1:19-25

We are to receive God’s Word as an agreement between the Father and the son to do the essential business of the Father.


It’s essential because, eternity depends on it. And people are dying to get into hell everyday but they are blinded by the enemy.


What the Father tells us isn’t just spoken, it’s put inside us and is our purpose in life.

We are to go around doing good and healing all oppressed by the devil.

Bring heaven down, as in heaven so on earth.


Satan is a monster and so are His minion and they want nothing more than to kill, steal and destroy your life.


Cancer, germs, illness, sickness, disease, infirmities, … tools

used by the devil. It is hungry and it’s set on killing, stealing

and destroying every part of your being. It has many tentacles

trying to reach more parts to eat us and kill.


We must set them free, people are dying every day and we

have the cure.


Healing is in the Atonement.


“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;” Psalms 103:2-4


“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. Isaiah 53:4-5, 11-12


“When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” Matthew 8:16-17


“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” James 1:22


Entering the Will of God.

1st Surrendering of your will to do the will of God. (Born Again). It is not God’s ideal for you to have to be pushed around like a machine or you move like a mechanism.

2nd Recognize yourself as God’s son and man’s servant. I think the most wonderful exhibition of this truth is that God gives us is the fact that He give us the Holy Ghost to use for God.


Gives us the Holy Ghost to use for God.


“They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover,” (Mark 16:18) but if you don’t lay your hands on anyone they will not be healed. However, if you have faith to believe that you have the Holy Spirit to be used by Him and for Him, your heart and your hands will be ready. It is a sad thing that God has to go out on a special mission and hunt a soul up and wrestle with him in order to get him to do something for God.


Mark 16:20 confirming the Word, signs following.


Holy Spirit is waiting for you to lay hands, then the Holy Spirit touches them.


Step 1 Lay hands

Step 2 Holy Spirit heals (signs following)


You lay hands --- Holy Spirit follows. Signs follows. We don’t follow the signs.

The Holy Spirit is following you. You are relying on Him, but He is following you. He is the helper.


Preach, lay hands – Holy Spirit.

He follows your actions. He is waiting on you to move. He leads you but He works after you.


We are the doer and the Holy Spirit is the helper. As I do, the Helper helps.

We are to be obedient. Do what you’re supposed to do. Then the helper does the work he is supposed to do.


Psalm 103:2-4 Don’t forget the benefits. We should talk to our soul like David did.

“It is finished”


We are saved because of the crucifixion. Healing was at the whipping post. (We are healed because of the stripes.) By his stripes you were healed.


When He bore those stripes. He bore our infirmities & sickness and disease. It’s wrong to live in sin and say I’m saved. It’s also wrong to live in sickness for the same reason, they are both covered in the atonement.


Healing and salvations are both ours.

Isaiah 53:4-5, 11-12; Matthew 8:16-17; James 1:22 (See Above)


Bore stripes for all those coming in the future not just those alive at the time.

What He did with sin, He did with sickness. It’s not ok to believe only part of the atonement. If you don’t believe both of them, you may want to question if you are really saved or if you are full of religion.


As you hear the Word preached you can be healed because the Word is Life and it will set you free.


What Jesus did with our sin, He did with our sickness. Matthew 8:16-17.

This is a law on the Books. It’s not right for people to be sick. The New Law is on the books “By His stipes you were healed.” Legal basis is by His stripes.


We take it by faith. We don’t beg for it, we don’t even need to pray for it because it is already done.


Does it take faith to believe a fact?

Does it take faith to believe a fact?

You don’t need faith to believe a fact.

The WORD says you are healed!


God’s not going to heal you, you are already healed. You just need to walk in it.

Realize who you are and what is in you.


How do you pray and command wholeness?

Speak to the body or sickness not the person.

Command it to go in the name of Jesus Christ.


Don’t get their medical history because you will move from compassion to sympathy and you will not be operating in the right place.

Remember you are not talking to a person, you are talking to the infirmity.


In the name of Jesus, ________ I command you, leave this person NOW!

Now do what you couldn’t before.


Person receiving listen, then do what you couldn’t before.


Now go out and lay hands on someone needing you.
