Pastor John : I was a conservative South African male, standing watching 10,000 people go crazy. And the cry of my heart was, “Lord, I don’t want to be conservative. I want to have that freedom to praise You and shout like they are shouting.” He just said, “Do it.” So I did it. With 10,000 people I raised my voice, I raised my hands, I jumped, I screamed, I shouted, and the power of God hit my body. It was like His spiritual, invisible hand came into my spirit man and pulled a plug and rivers of joy flowed out of me for days and days and days and it’s never stopped since.
I say: “I want to be set free from stuff that hinders my mind, that’s got my soul all bent out of shape, and all kinds of things in my life. I begin to praise God with everything I’ve got, that joy consumes my life and it makes everything else just disappear. He turns my ashes into joy.”
19For I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance, 20as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honoured in my body, whether by life or by death. 21For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labour for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. 23I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better, for me. 24But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account. 25Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith, 26so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again. 27Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel, 28and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is a clear sign to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God (Philippians 1:19-28 ESV).
The Apostle Paul had this resurrection life knowledge inside of him, that the power of resurrection was so powerful in his body; he was that close to walking with God, that he was able to choose whether it was time for him to depart, or for him to stay. And he said, “No, it’s better for me to stay for your sake. But this thing you must do – you must stay worthy and stay doing what the Gospel of Jesus Christ requires you to do.”
The resurrection power of Christ is the difference between us and any other religion. If Jesus had not been raised from the dead, then it would be a poor show for us to worship a god that’s dead or that is no god at all. But only a living God can be raised from the dead by the Source of all life. That same resurrection power is at work amongst us.
Pastor Sharon: The Lord spoke to me personally in June of this year, just to me, to my heart for my life. And He said to me, “I will help your faith, Sharon. I will help your faith. You can come up in faith in healing and health. But you will need to expose your eyes and ears consistently and steadfastly to My Word and scriptures on these matters. They are not going to manifest in My church and among My people just by prayer. It’s going to be your believing, your faith and your expectancy which comes from My Word. This is what will do it.”
12Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the Lord thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers: 13And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land … thine oil, the increase of thy … flocks of thy sheep … 14Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle. 15And the Lord will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee (Deuteronomy 7:12-15 KJV). He will take away all sickness from us.
26If thou wilt diligently hearken – it starts the same as Deuteronomy 7:12 – 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 (Exodus 15:26 KJV). 23Jesus went about … healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people (Matthew 4:23 KJV).
11And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul (Acts 19:11 KJV). – 12So that from his body, from Paul’s body, his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits left them (Acts 19:11-12 KJV).
What God was saying to me, “I speak this scripture to you today, because I am wrath that My people who are obedient to Me, who love Me, who serve Me, who are obeying My commandments, that this virus is thinking it can attach itself to them.” That’s how God gave it to me in my heart. I didn’t have it before He gave it to me. And then I had it. He said, “This virus,” because it started with just one person we heard, another person we heard that they’ve been tested positive. And the Lord said, “I say no. But I cannot say no if you and Pastor John don’t say no now. Say no now.” We say, “No.” We say no to that virus. We say, “No.” It may not attach itself to our bodies. It’s illegal. If it comes on you, it’s illegally on you because God has promised that none of the diseases that are in the world system shall come upon His people that are obedient; none of them.
46… go quickly unto the congregation … for there is wrath gone out from the Lord; the plague is begun. 47… into the midst of the congregation; and, behold, the plague was begun among the people: and he put on incense, and made an atonement for the people. 48And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stopped (Numbers 16:46-48 KJV). The plague was stopped.
The anointing is God’s sickness-removing power. The anointing of the Holy Spirit is God’s sickness-removing power. It removes sickness and prevents.
Pastor John: We declare that any sickness or disease that may have come on your body, when this comes and touches your body, healing power of God begins to do its mighty work in you. The healing power of God, the mighty Word of God, the resurrected life of Jesus Christ begins to do its mighty work in your body, in your mind, in your soul. It begins to restore you as an individual.
God is beginning to heal as these cloths will touch your body, any sickness and disease is going to leave your body like that. Just like that.
Pastor Sharon: My faith for this Pastor John, my faith for this is that what happened to John G Lake when he was praying for people when the bubonic plague broke out in the early 1900s. And he was praying for people and they were getting healed. And they came to him and said, “How come you’re not getting the bubonic plague?” And he said, “Just put some of the plague on my hand and look, watch what happens under the microscope.” And the plague died when it touched his skin because the Word of God concerning health and healing was working so mightily in his body that it couldn’t penetrate. That’s why the Lord said to me, “Sharon, you’ve got to come up in faith. You’ve got to. You’ve got to expose your eyes and your ears to scriptures. Get them in your heart. You can come up in faith in health and healing.” So I’ve been coming up. And here we go. It’s going to prevent anything, any virus, any droplets from anybody that breathes anywhere will not, will die on impact. I declare that. This is what I’m taking it for personally, Pastor John. It will prevent, it will prevent it.
Pastor John: The reason why I shared the humanity component of what I feel, is because that’ll happen to you. Because the devil will lie to you and say to you it’s just a cloth. But this is not just a cloth. This is your faith connected to the anointing. This is the glory of God. Your faith is going to be activated when you get out of that chair and you come and stand here and you come and take the cloth because you are saying, “I believe and I receive this.”
Jesus. There is healing in the name of Jesus. There’s power in the name of Jesus – it’s greater than any other name. Every sickness must bow to the name of Jesus. Every mental condition, every emotional condition, every physical condition must bow to the name of Jesus. There is no name that is named on earth that has more power than the name of Jesus. The name of Jesus is the name above every other name, and everything must bow to the name of Jesus.
We sing Your name because we trust in Your name. We sing Your name because Your name has got power. We sing Your name because it saved us, redeemed us, has brought us life. We sing Your name because in Your name is joy and strength. We speak the name of Jesus without shame. We speak the name of Jesus with great joy. We speak the name of Jesus because He is Lord of all. He is Lord of lords and King of kings.
