The Healing Touch



Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. – 1 John 4:1 (NIV)

"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. – Matthew 7:15 (NIV)

but test them all; hold on to what is good, - 1 Thessalonians 5:21 (NIV)

But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves. – 2 Peter 2:1 (NIV)

This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD. –Jeremiah 23:16 (NIV)


All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, - 2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)

It saddened me…to hear from someone I knew…that she felt the energyof something…hoping for a miraculous healing…for an extremity that person injured long time ago. She thought the person administering the healing was touching her…When she wasn’t. And that person explained that it was “the energy…”

I told her not to be angry with me. I just wanted to make her aware. Out of concern. For her to be more careful about such things. Because of many deceptions from the spirit world. As I prayed silently. And thanked God for His truth…

Healing touch…As I believe in the healing that also comes from the Lord. But I also hear and see many manifestations that are not mentioned in the Bible. His Word. So many deceptions around us. As humans, we are always inclined to expect wonderful display of God’s power. But as followers, the Bible says, we are to worship “by faith” and not by sight. We are to follow Jesus by Spirit and His Truth…

But," he said, "you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live." – Exodus 33:20 (NIV)

Only His doctrine will guide us against such spirits of errors!

Lord, please give us, your children your gift of discernment. Thank You for Your truth!

  3. RCUBEs,

    I'm trying to catch up on your posts. I've been away. I want to thank you for addressing this. I have seen the video on another blogger's site earlier this year. Its quite an eye opener, isn't it? It rests heavily on those of foreign cultures. indeed, we must pray without ceasing for discernment in these days. The enemy has stepped up his pace to tear down God's Kingdom. He's running scared. He knows his time is short. We must be informed...vigilant...but not walk in fear. We have been given the authority over this kind of false spirit that claims truth. We must remember the the enemy is not creative. He has to try and copy or duplicate everything the Lord has ever done or created. He's a copycat.

    We are the head and not the tail! God will give us the wisdom and discernment if we ask for it...seek His face rather than the face the world flaunts in front of us.

    Good for you! keep your eyes and ears open to the truth. You were a viable witness to this friend. I'm proud that you stood against the false spirit.

    blessings to you and your family
    So enjoyed your posts on your son's graduation!
    Blessings to him for the journey before him...
    you have taught him well.
    Still praying for God's anointed touch on your son's allergies...
    in Jesus name!

    God bless you as you trust in His WORD

  7. Hi Rcubes, have you read Ian Andrews' books and watch his videos? My former church invited him once to our services and I'd read 2 of his books on healing. I found them quite encouraging. There are christians gifted with this ministry of healing in the name of Jesus and not by any other spirits of course. I'm believing in God for my own healing and restoration physically and spiritually. I just put my comment here for the purpose of asking you to read up his books if you can get them and share with me what you think. :) I agree that we have to be careful of deceptive spirits. Right now, I'm a little confused in my christian walk. While we guard ourselves of deceptive spirits, what about some of the hostile attitudes of some church leaders whom in the name of upholding the doctrines of the church pound down hard on its members. What spirits are those? This is the issue that has stumbled me these last 5 yrs. Anyway, now I've moved out to another church and hope I can function as a child of God again. God bless you Rcubes. Btw, I hope your work-problem is resolved?

    1. I don't doubt the healing that comes from the Lord...I believe there are also those who are gifted with this. I'm just glad we have His truth and if Jesus alone is not glorified, that's when I start doubting anyone and the things they do. We are told from His Word that the spiritual enemies can also disguise themselves as "angels of light"...Regarding the hostile attitudes of such church members and leaders, that is sad as we know the fruits of the Holy Spirit and if anyone claims he or she is following the Lord Jesus, then, we can determine if that's true just by looking at their fruits...

      "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin." - 1 John 1:7

      I pray that it is the Lord's wisdom and discernment that will guide you as you draw near to the Lord.

      Thank you for your visit and comment and like what I had mentioned from past posts, I was demoted. But by God's grace, that became an advantage though I work lesser hours. He alone is all we need in all areas of our lives. God bless and protect you also, sister.

  8. "every spirit which does not confess Jesus Christ come in flesh is not of God"; Jesus Christ is always the test.

  9. Boy this is so timely. There's someone I know of that's going around saying similar stuff. I think it's pride that they're more special than someone else. What you said here is right on perfect. Thanks for posting it. And Rosel I made a video of His power in nature. If you watch it....I hope you enjoy it. Nothing is more awesome or greater than HIm. BTW it's posted on my blog. Hey...have a great weekend. You always hit truth home.

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]


Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.


Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.


All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.


When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.


The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.


When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himseld and ended up injuring his attacker severely.


[Source: Life Application Bible]:


We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.


“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14


Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].


Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.


Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.


Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
