Dig a little deeper into the Word with Pastor Petie.

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and
preach the gospel to every creature. . . And these
signs shall follow them that believe; In my name . . .
they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover
Let’s stop and analyze something here: Which of the sick
did Jesus say we were to lay hands on?
Jesus just said “the sick” —- period.
Then, if God were the author of sickness—-if God did
put sickness and disease on people —- if it were the
will of God for some to be sick —- this statement
would be confusing. Because in it, Jesus authorized
us to lay hands on ALL sick.
If God weren’t in the healing business, Jesus would
have had to say something like, “Lay your hands on
those that it is the will of God to heal, and they shall
But, no! God set the Church against sickness - period!
Confession: God is in the healing business. God is not in
the sickness business. God is in the delivering business.
God is not in the bondage business. I refuse to allow the
enemy to try to get me to accept sickness or bondage as
being from God. Satan is the author of sickness. God has
set me against sickness.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the ruler of the
darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in
high places. EPHESIANS 6:12 WE are called upon to bind unseen forces. We have
authority over the devil and evil spirits. But we do not
have authority over men or their wills.
Story by Hagin: He and a pastor friend were at a
conference in California. The man had diabetes, and
he had to check his urine every morning for sugar
content to see how much insulin he would need for his
Hagin told him, “You won’t register any sugar as long
as you’re with me.” He looked at me as if he didn’t
believe him, but in the almost two weeks he was with
me, he never registered any sugar, even though he ate
pies and cakes. He later told me he was home for
three days before he registered sugar again.
Why? I took authority over his sickness. I had control
over unseen forces, but I didn’t have control over his
will. As long as he was with me, and this unseen force
was in my presence, I could control it, I tried to
convince him he could do the same thing, but he
expected it to come back, and it did.
Confession: I have authority over all unseen forces in
my realm of domain. And I bind them and stop their
activity in Jesus’ Name
YOU HAVE AUTHORITY OVER UNSEEN FORCES!

Read 1 Corinthians 15: 55-58
Easter is a season of great gladness for those who
know Christ. But for those who are without “the light
of the knowledge of God’s glory” (2 Corinthians 4:6),
there is nothing to rejoice over. Jesus left us with the
great hope and certainty that He is going to return to
bring a new Heaven and a new earth where, we are
told, there will be no more sorrow, trouble, or death for
those who have believed and followed Him. There will
be trouble, sorrow, and suffering for those who have
neglected or rejected Him. *As Christians, our great
task is to obey the command to tell the whole world
about Christ crucified, buried, yet risen again. My
prayer for you during this season of the year, when we
meditate on our Savior’s great sacrifice for us on the
cross, is that you will be filled with great peace and
hope, because “He is risen!” That is the Good News.
As you follow Christ, are you obeying His command
to tell others that He is risen indeed? Are you sure of Are you sure of your salvation? Commit your life to
Christ today. BY BILLY GRAHAM

KEEP OLD LEAVEN OUT OF YOUR NEW LIFE
I Corinthians 5: 6-8
:6 Your glorying is not good. Know you not that a little
leaven leaveneth (ruins) the whole lump?
:7Purge out therefore the old leaven, that you may be a
new lump, as you are unleavened. For Christ our passover
is sacrificed for us;
:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven,
neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with
the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
