Kenneth Copeland: Aging

Kenneth Copeland

The Bible has a lot to say about God’s will concerning our life here on the earth—how we are to live and for how long. God has a good, long life planned for us. But without that revelation, when we reach 60 or 70, we may start winding down and getting ready to go.

God never meant for us to die young. It’s His will for us to live out the full number of our days. Traditionally, Psalms 90:10 has been quoted in regard to man’s life expectancy. It says: “The days of our years are threescore years and ten (seventy years)—or even, if by reason of strength, fourscore years (eighty years)…” (The Amplified Bible). But what most people don’t realize is that reading this verse alone is taking it out of context. A footnote to Psalms 90 in The Amplified Bible explains:

This psalm is credited to Moses, who is interceding with God to remove the curse which made it necessary for every Israelite over twenty years of age (when they rebelled against God at Kadesh-barnea) to die before reaching the promised land (Numbers 14:26-35). Moses says most of them are dying at seventy years of age. This number has often been mistaken as a set span of life for all mankind. It was not intended to refer to anyone except those Israelites under the curse during that particular forty years. Seventy years never has been the average span of life for humanity. When Jacob, the father of the twelve tribes, had reached 130 years (Genesis 47:9), he complained that he had not attained to the years of his immediate ancestors. In fact, Moses himself lived to be 120 years old, Aaron 123, Miriam several years older, and Joshua to 110 years of age. Note as well that in the Millennium a person dying at 100 will still be thought a child (Isaiah 65:20).

Hagin: Physical Manifestations Are Not Necessary in Deliverance

Physical Manifestations Are Not Necessary in Deliverance
Kenneth E Hagin
The triumphant church

Another extreme deliverance teaching in our day is that the devil has to manifest himself in order to be cast out. Some people are always wanting to see manifestations. Some believers seem to be more interested in demonic manifestations than they are in Holy Ghost manifestations!

Some ministers teach as doctrine that people must cough or vomit or have some other kind of physical manifestation in order to get rid of a demon. People think that’s new, but we had an outbreak of that in the days of The Voice of Healing too. As I said, these errors and deceptions seem to run in cycles because Satan is the same old deceiver he’s always been.
Don’t misunderstand me. There may be occasions when a demon will manifest itself when it leaves someone. For example, the Bible says a demon manifested itself as it came out of a child who had a dumb spirit: “And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him …” (Mark 9:26).

However, when Jesus appeared to me in the vision in 1952, He specifically said to me, “In dealing with the devil, don’t ever tell anyone to cough Continue reading

Possessing the Gates of the Enemy
Cindy Jacobs
Bearing Other’s Sicknesses

Over the past years we have received a number of sad reports from pray-ers across America. One of the saddest involved an intercessory prayer group leader who had become sick. As she prayed she felt that this sickness was not hers but that she was bearing it for another friend. She said openly that this sickness could not touch her because it was not real and was only something she was carrying for the weaker person. As time went on, however, she got sicker and Continue reading

Wigglesworth: Healing

Wigglesworth shares:

When I was in Switzerland the Lord was graciously working and healing many of the people. I was staying with Brother Reuss of Goldiwil and two policemen were sent to arrest me. The charge was that I was healing the people without a license.

Mr. Reuss said to them, “I am sorry that he is not here just now. He is holding a meeting about two miles away, but before you arrest him let me show you something.” Brother Reuss took these two policemen down to one of the lower parts of that district, to a house with which they were familiar, for they had often gone to that place to arrest a certain woman, who was repeatedly put in prison because of continually being engaged in drunken brawls.

He took them to this woman and said to them, “This is one of the many cases of blessing that have come through the ministry of the man you have come to arrest. This woman came to our meeting in a drunken condition. Her body was broken, for she was ruptured in two places. While she was drunk, the evangelist laid his hands on her and asked God to heal her and deliver her.” The woman joined in, “Yes, and God saved me, and I have not tasted a drop of liquor since.”

No time to be confused…

We don’t have time to be confused about the call God has on our lives. Lets’ face it… not being sure what He wants can sometimes be a very comforting position. We can just go on with
life the way it is, “waiting” until we hear God.
I promise, this is not a cool thing to do.
If you don’t know what God has planned for you then take some time off and find out. I suggest to you that failing to strongly pursue only means complacency and compromise are cousins about to pay
a visit.
