Many of you know my testimony, of how I was healed of epilepsy when I was 15 years old at a charismatic healing service, and able to obtain my driver’s license.
Many of you know of my more recent gradual healing from a stroke and high blood pressure…
Many more know of the divine healing ministry granted to me by the Lord Jesus Christ, how, after losing eight of my family members to various sicknesses and diseases, I went on a 40 day fast, one meal/day, and prayed almost day and night for answers, as to why the ministry of divine healing appeared to be sometimes hit and miss.
How God brought me from my home country Canada, to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to sit at the feet of Kenneth E. Hagin, and attend both Rhema Bible Training Center, but to also sit in healing school for a year and a half, and actually see Jesus heal the sick…
During this time, the Lord commissioned me to produce two healing cassettes specifically to be listened to by those in intensive or palliative care, gentle soothing words from heaven, set to instrumental praise from one of the most anointed and gifted pianists in the world, Dino.
Dino has graciously given me permission to distribute them free of charge to anyone requiring healing, and as I have done this over the years, thousands of people have been healed by the power of God!

If you like to read, I have included my sermon notes from a message I preached, entitled:
Seven Reasons Why You Should be Healed Today
1. Creation and Heaven reveal the nature of God. When we read the Genesis account, on what day did God create sickness? He didn’t, it is the result of the fall of man. As John Alexander Dowie put it, sickness is the foul offspring of mother sin, and father Satan. It is not your friend, but an enemy to be destroyed.
In Heaven there is no sickness, for that is where God dwells. In Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Now, we are children of the king, and Jesus is Lord right? We claim to serve Him, so what did he teach us to pray. Matt 6:9 ¶ After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
If we are to pray for the will of God here in the earth, as it is in heaven. Obviously, we are to pray for healing, for there is no sickness, death, sorrow or pain there.
What is the first reason that you should be healed today? The next verse in the Lords prayer or Our Father.
11 Give us this day our daily bread. Well, healing is the children’s bread, and today is the day to receive it.
In Matthew 15:26 Jesus spoke to a woman who came to him for healing for her daughter. He said “But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.” What was he talking about here? Healing. You are a child of God if you have accepted Jesus sacrifice for you on the cross. Healing is your bread.
2. Now, lets look at the second reason you should be healed today.
God healed people in the Old Testament. Exodus 23:25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.
Notice that if a person were to serve God under the Old Covenant, God promised to take sickness away from them. Notice here that this is not just healing but also an agreement between God and His people of divine health, of literally taking sickness away from the midst of His people. Hebrews 8:6 speaking of Jesus states “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.” If God promised to take sickness away from the midst of His people in the Old Covenant. How much more will He do for you today because of the agreement He made with Jesus.
He healed wonderfully in the Old Testament, Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee. Jehovah Rapha.
The children of Israel knew it to be true, for God had delivered them from every physical ailment miraculously when he gave them the covenant of Passover. We don’t have time to really go into detail on Exodus 12, and Christ’s fulfillment of this verse, yet for you Bible scholars jot down these verses: Ex 12, Ps 105:37, 1Cor 11:32 onward. Know this though, you all remember the story. Moses and the Ten Commandments, God had done ten judgments on Egypt, and then prepared His people to leave. On the last night came the final judgment upon the Egyptians, a death angel was to come, and strike dead every firstborn child in every house that did not have the blood of the lamb applied to its doorposts. A lamb without spot or blemish. Jesus. Yet, the body of that lamb was to be eaten wholly, with 11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’S Passover.
God moved, judgment came, and great fear came upon the people. 35 And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment:
36 And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.
Psalms 105:37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
Can I preach in this place a little bit? Think about this. Historians tell us that somewhere around 2 and a half million Israelites marched out of Egypt that night. A people sold into slavery, a whipped, beaten, broken people. Tell me how they could physically march out of Egypt after over four hundred years of slavery with all their children, flocks and herds. Think about it. Uncle Seth, you know the one with the limp he got from an Egyptian soldier, aunt Sarah blind in one eye from the beating she took. They killed the lamb, applied the blood, and then they ate the body of the lamb, with their belts on, shoes on, luggage packed, and what happened? All across the nation of Israel, God Himself visited His people, and suddenly Uncle Seth ain’t limping no more. Aunt Sarah can see! Every ache, pain, sickness, sniffle, cough and misery left, instantly healed by the power of God as they partook of the lamb, so that they marched out strong in the Lord and the power of His might.
and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
So if God healed His people in the Old Testament, and we are under a better covenant based upon better promises, you should be healed today. In our communion ordinance we have it wrong. 1 Corinthians 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.
What are we to discern in communion. The cup is representative of Jesus shed blood for the forgiveness of our sins. It prevents death and eternal separation from God. But what about the bread? It is representative of Jesus body. He took stripes in His body that our body be healed. The Israelite ate the body of the lamb, and they were healed.
1 Corinthians 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. What cause? The fact that Christian had not discerned the Lord’s body, by faith in the ordinance of communion. This verse says that because of this many of us are sick and some die prematurely, yet it ought not to be so. Seeing Christ in the Passover ceremony will produce healing.
3. The third reason you should be healed today because it is part of your redemption. Remember I taught you that you are the redeemed of the Lord, bought by His blood. That redemption means to be bought back to ones original state. Well, in light of the blood of Jesus, 1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
Jesus is not only your substitute for sin, but also for your sickness. Is 53:4 ¶ Surely he hath borne our griefs, (sicknesses) and carried our sorrows (pain) yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. Isaiah 53:5 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.
Now this was a prophecy given by the prophet Isaiah that was literally fulfilled in the earthly ministry of Jesus.
Matt 8:16 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:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
Yet, it didn’t end there. He died a cruel death on a Roman cross, beaten beyond human recognition so that you wouldn’t have to. He literally bore your sickness and disease on that cruel tree. Broken that you might be healed. Doctors tell us they have discovered there are 39 main categories of diseases in the earth today. Jesus took thirty-nine lashes, a lash for every disease known to man. He did it for you, His love, His life, His death, and His resurrection deserves a response.
1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
He took your pain; therefore you have no more right to it. You are not your own. His love and sacrifice demand that you be healed today.
4. The fourth reason you should be healed today is that sickness is from the devil, and you are a child of God. It is not your friend, something to be held up as a badge of courage, something allowed cultivating the sympathy of those around you. A twisted cry for love and pity from the heart of man, a perversion of what God longs to give. Perfect love that destroys your every fear. John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. The nature of Satan is to steal your strength, your health, and your life if you allow it. Yet, today there is an infusion of life from heaven for you for it is written:
Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Healing is good. Healing is of God. Sickness is of the devil. God wants to break the yoke of oppression upon your life. 1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
I too am a son of God, and for this purpose am I hear to preach to you today. For I know my Lord, and He is not a liar like some of you. He always backs up his word with His power. There are more than two of us gathered here together in His name. He’s here, and He’s the same yesterday today and forever. He is Almighty, and He is here to Heal. He longs to manifest Himself, He’s simply been waiting for someone with enough guts to preach His word the way it is being preached today. With boldness.
Today is the day of salvation, Today is the day of your healing.
5. The fifth reason you should be healed today is because Jesus healed everyone who came to him during His earthly ministry, and He is the same yesterday today and forever. Now there were some cases where He went to people, and they wouldn’t receive Him, and they were not healed. Yet, tonight, you have come to receive healing as an act of your will. He cannot fail.
Mark 5: 25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
Now if her faith made her whole, your faith will make you whole for God is no respecter of persons.
Some may say, Jesus did it for her but how do I know that He will do it for me?
Matthew 4:24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.
Matthew 12:15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
Luke 4:40 Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.
Luke 6:17 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;
Luke 6:19 And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.
Matthew 8:2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
Matthew 8:3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
He still will. Today.
6. The sixth reason you should be healed today, is because God has committed healing to His church.
Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 ¶ So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
James 5:14 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:
James 5:15 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.
I am an elder in the church. I am going to pray for you. I believe God’s Word. You will be healed, and don’t think there is some sin that will stop God’s healing power here tonight. If you have committed sins, they will be forgiven you.
7. The Final reason you should be healed today is that God’s Word is medicine.
Now this medicine is wonderful medicine. You cannot overdose, and it has wonderful side effects like wisdom, peace, prosperity and so on.
Pr 4:20 ¶ My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
Health = marpe: a medicine, a cure, a deliverance, a healing, a remedy, with the sense of soundness and wholeness.
Proverbs 12:18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
Proverbs 13:17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health.
Proverbs 16:24 Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
Malachi 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
Now some of you have been healed already, simply by sitting there. Why? Well, God kind of snuck up on you. While you have sat under His Word today. Something deep inside of you quietly decided to believe the word of God, and God acted according to your faith, and if you check you’ll discover that every symptom of pain, sickness and affliction has left your body as the Lord worked with me, gently walking these isles, performing His word, and healing the sick.
Yet, there are some of you who need the prayer of faith for you by the elders of this church, and we are willing and available. Today is your day.
