Liz was attacked by the spirit of lyme disease about a year ago and had another recent bad attack. Her friend Karen was so concerned for her that she texted me on the day we were hosting our weekly Life Team training session. Continue reading Jesus Heals Lyme Disease
So how do we not waver in our faith and give unbelief the boot? By forgetting about self and dying to self and recognizing that the source of every bit of our power is Jesus and looking unto Him alone. We have died and He has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: (Ephesians 2:6)
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 10 & Conclusion

This was not some unique kind of demon that needed special prayer and fasting attention or otherwise it would not obey the name of Jesus. No, every demon no matter their rank or status in hell, is subject to Jesus and to us in His name without exception. They are all of their father the devil and must bow the knee when commanded to do so. Even Satan himself is subject to Jesus’ authority. Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 9

So fasting was not the issue here. Unbelief was. So now back to the question, what caused the disciples to suddenly operate in unbelief where they had already operated successfully in full belief before? Remember we explained earlier that the opposite of faith was unfaith or the absence of faith?
Actually one of the causes of this absence of faith is the absence of correct doctrine. How can one have correct faith when their underlying doctrine is in error? They had been fed on man made doctrines and religion all their lives. And who taught them these doctrines? The scribes! Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 8

So what caused these disciples to all of a sudden waiver in their faith to the point of not being able to speak and perform in faith and full authority as they had already done before? Could it be that they had not fasted enough? This is often cited as a prerequisite and/or excuse as to why a demon is not cast out or someone is not healed. After all, is this not what Jesus said that “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.“? Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 7

Jesus was not only the Son of God but He was also the express image of the Father. He said, “If you have seen me then you have seen the Father.” Therefore everything that Jesus spoke was the Father’s will for His people. It was never the Father’s will that His creation be enslaved and oppressed. And this was at the core of His message which He spoke through Jesus, announcing the acceptable year of the liberation of His people. Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 6

Jesus came as the last Adam to restore the dominion of the earth back to man which the first Adam had given away to the enemy by his disobedience. This dominion, that was originally theirs, is what Jesus was trying to instill in the people every opportunity He had. Like a long lost and forgotten inheritance that rightfully belonged to them. This is why He told them that according to their faith so be it unto them. What was their faith? What did they believe? That they had power with God? Not quite. They believed that they were powerless and subject to the oppression of the enemy. Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 5

All of a sudden Jesus appeared on the scene and boy were the disciples glad to see Him, they ran to Him together with all the people.
And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him. Mark 9:15
Jesus was very perceptive to the whole situation that was going on.
And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them? Mark 9:16
Notice that He asked the scribes, not His disciples, what they were questioning them about. He knew the evil that was in their hearts. Also notice that the scribes would not answer Him back but kept silent as if they had been caught in the act of talking about Him behind His back. Almost like when you step into a room, and everyone suddenly stops talking and you get that awkward feeling that they were all just talking about you.
