God intensely desires to heal and restore His creation. All of creation is groaning for this to be. One day there will be a restoration of all things (Acts 3:21) And it is in that day that the Kingdom becomes completely visible.
Currently, restoration happens first on the inside of individuals, and then on the outside. And then as people cooperate with God restoration can be released into realms beyond – like family, business and governmental realms etc. Restoration can be seen and known.
As AMBASSADORS of the Kingdom we can and should be ready to minister freedom and the hope of restoration, whenever and wherever we find opportunity and quickening.
We proclaim in prayer and in personal encounters:
1. FREEDOM FROM DEMONIC POWER, CONTROL AND INFLUENCE: Study Ephesians 2:2; Colossians 2:15; 1 John 3:18) Demonic influence and manipulation is the force behind ALL lawlessness.
2. FREEDOM FROM SIN’S POWER AND CONSEQUENCES These consequence are death, punishment, and eternal separation from God.(See: Romans 3:23-25; Ephesians 2:4-9; Colossians 2:13-14; 1 John 1:7-9)
3. FREEDOM FROM CONDEMNATION, GUILT AND SHAME: Study: Romans 8:1; John 3:17-18; John 8:11)
Since Jesus is the Word made flesh, the Word comes to heal and deliver. Look at Ps 107:20 He sent forth His Word and healed them, and delivered them from all their destructions
It is not our word or words that bring the healing and deliverance, rather His word. We must stick with His words.
In Exodus 15:26 these words are recorded: I am the Lord that heals thee. Since, God cannot lie (Hebrews 6:18) and since He never changes (Hebrews 13:8) we can rest assured that when His word meets faith it WILL accomplish what He said it would.
As we encourage others to receive and implant the word in the heart, we can assure them that they will they receive healing and freedom, and will progressively become more whole.
We must always stress the necessity of renewing the mind and heart, so that transformation can come.
