The Only Evidence You Need for Healing


JOY: Now I’m traveling with
Kenneth Copland ministries. I’m singing on a praise and
worship team there. So, I’m spreading the good
news through song. (Singing) I know my God
has made the way for me. I know my God has
made the way for me. ANNOUNCER: Settle
the issue today. It’s God’s perfect will for
you to be healed, and the word itself is the only
evidence you need. Join Kenneth Copland on the
Believer’s Voice of Victory. Take hold of the word of God.
Jesus is the healer. KENNETH: Let’s go to
Matthew, Chapter eight. Now, we’re looking here
at how easy it is to receive from Jesus.
And, it is the perfect will of God. Matthew, eight, we
read the second verse. Let’s go down to the fifth
verse. When Jesus was entered into Capernaum, home. There came
to him a centurion beseeching him, and saying “Lord, my
servant lieth at home, sick of the palsy, grievously
tormented.” Jesus said, “I will!” Now, notice that, I will.
“I will come and heal him.” He didn’t even ask him to. Are you
listening? He said I’ll come and heal him. The centurion answered
and said, “Lord, I’m not worthy that you should come unto my
roof.” Now see, he realized that he’s not a Jew. But, he knew
enough about the word, and you’ll see why as we read these
accounts of him. Speak the word only and my servant shall
be healed. I am a man under authority, having soldiers unto
me. I say to this man, “go”, and he goeth. To another “come,” and
he cometh. And, to my servant, “do this” and he does it. When
Jesus heard it he marveled and said to them that followed, and
that included his own disciples. “Verily I say unto you, I’ve
not found so great faith, not in Israel.” Praise God. Now then,
let’s go over to Luke 7:1. Now, when he had ended all his
sayings in the audience of the people he went home. Don’t you
love it? A certain centurion servant who was dear unto him
was sick and ready to die. When he had heard of Jesus he sent
unto him the elders of the Jews beseeching him that he would
come and heal his servant. When they came to Jesus they besought
him instantly saying that he was worthy for whom he should do
this, for he loveth our nation and, he hath built us a
synagogue. So, this is a man that as a Jewish proselyte,
he was spending time in the synagogue. Now, that’s the
synagogue where Jairus was a leader of the synagogue. Isn’t
that interesting? So, now he knows that since he’s not under
the Abrahamic covenant that he’s not covenant worthy of Jesus
coming into his house. Now, don’t get the idea that that’ll
work for you. Lord, I’m just unworthy … no. Don’t you
start that. No sir. Are you born again? CONGREGATION: Yes.
KENNETH: Then, you’re a new creature. God didn’t make any
new creatures unworthy. No, he bore our sins in his own body on
the tree. Amen. Any man that’s in Christ is a new creature, a
new creation. Old things have passed away, behold all things
become new, and all things are of God. He who knew no sin was
made to be sin for us that we might be made the righteousness
of God in him. Now, don’t get over into that unworthy
business. That’s a strong badge of unbelief. Now, when they
said he built us a synagogue, he loves our nation. Jesus went
with them, and when he was not far from the house the centurion
sent friends to him saying, “Trouble not thy self. I’m not
worthy that that should come under my roof.” Wherefore,
neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee. But, say in
a word, and my servant shall be healed. For I also am a man
under authority. Having unto me soldiers and I say to one, “go”
and he goes. To another, “come”, and he comes. And, to my
servant, “do this”, and he does it. When Jesus heard these
things he marveled at him. And turned him about and said unto
the people that followed him, “I say unto you, I have not
found so great faith. No, not in Israel.” Praise God. And, they
that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole
that had been sick. So, why was this a marvel to Jesus? Why did
he marvel at that faith? Because he demanded no evidence other
than the word. You say the word, and my servant will be healed.
He recognized the authority of the word of God. Now, you and I
not only have the authority of the word, we have the authority
of the name, hallelujah. Thank you Lord Jesus. Turn in your
bibles to Matthew, Chapter nine, verse two. Matthew nine, second
verse. We’ll I’ll read the first verse. He entered into a ship
and passed over, and came into his own city, which would be?
Capernaum. And, behold they brought to him a man sick of
the palsy, lying in a bed. Jesus seeing their faith said unto the
sick of the palsy, “Son, be of good cheer. Cheer up! They sins
be forgiven thee.” The whole certain of the scribe said
within themselves, “This man blasphemeth.” Jesus knowing
their thoughts said, “Where for think ye evil in your heart?
For whether is easier to say thy sins be forgiven thee, or to say
arise and walk? But that you may know that the son of man hath
power on earth to forgive sins.” Then saith he to the sick of the
palsy, “Arise, take up your bed, and go to thine house.” He arose
and departed to his house. When the multitude saw it they
marveled and glorified God, which had given such power
unto men. All right. Now, Mark, chapter two. And, first verse.
Now, Matthew said that he said, “Cheer up!” Amen. Cheer up, be
of good cheer. Your sins are forgiven. And again, he entered
into Capernaum after some days and it was noised that he was
in the house. So, he’s at home? Now, I thought for a long time
that this was a hostile crowd. But, it was not. He was not in a
synagogue. They had come to his place. Amen. This is … this
is very, very important. And … and, straight way, many were
gathered together in so much there was no room to receive
them. No, not so much as a bout the door. And, he preached the
word unto them. And, they come unto him bringing one sick of
the palsy, which was born of four. When they could not come
nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he
was. When they had broken it up, they let down the bed where in
the sick of the palsy lay. When Jesus saw their faith, he
said unto the sick of the palsy, “Son, thy sins be forgiven
thee.” Now, can’t you see him? He’s standing up there preaching
the word. The place is jam packed. They’ve come in there
from the whole area. And, you know, he … can’t you see
the smile on his face? They’re letting this guy down in front
of him, and he’s standing there … and before they … before
they can even get him down before Jesus, can’t you just see
him? “Hey! Son, cheer up! Your sins are forgiven!” Before he
ever got to the floor. Now, those present, that distracted
them. Now, we know what he’s teaching. The spirit of the Lord
is upon me. For he has anointed me. So, you know he took them
into the … he took them into the book of Isiah. He’s …
one account said he’s preaching. Another account said he was
teaching the word. So, which was he doing? Both. I noticed this
in the eight chapter of the book of Luke, he’s … he’s teaching
the sower sows the word, and suddenly it said he shouted with
a loud voice, “He that has ears that hear, let him hear!” That’s
not teaching. That’s preaching. He’s a preacher. That’s where
we get that. That’s when we get excited we holler loud. You
understand what I’m saying! We get it from him. Amen. When you
boys get older, and you get up and you start preaching you
going to start shouting loud too. Amen. Just like that old
man Copland does. You’re like your daddy though. Amen.
Thank you Lord Jesus. Amen? CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH:
So, and he’s an excited man. Oh, he’d preach. Amen. CONGREGATION:
Amen. KENNETH: And teach, and heal. CONGREGATION: Amen!
KENNETH: Thank you Lord. Now, see I done run off from my book.
Get excited, glory to God. Thank you Lord Jesus. Oh Lord, where
was I? Okay. Yeah. Now, when he said that it distracted them.
They didn’t get out of sorts with him, but their religion
drew their attention and they began to think instead of
listen. Now, it didn’t have to be a theological thing. You can
just get distracted. I’ve seen it happen. You get right into
… and some little disturbance take place in the congregation.
People turn around and look. That’s because you’re not
committed. Now, when you make a decision to be a doer of the
word, and not just a hearer only … I mean, they can set …
somebody set a firecracker off underneath a pew and it wouldn’t
make any difference. You still locked into the word of God.
CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Amen. Just don’t … you
just don’t pay any attention to anything else. But see, they got
distracted. So now, and follow this with me. You can do it. It
can be something silly. Gloria’s best friend, she … baby’s been
a hair dresser since she was a little girl. She’s done Gloria’s
hair for I don’t know how many years. So, she told me back when
I was talking about this, she said, “I really have to be
careful because I keep from looking at people’s hair.” You
know, she gets fixed on a … she sees something about
somebody’s hair, and she gets to thinking about it. You know, I
wonder how they did that? Or, why did they do that? Or, you
know, just enough of the devil to distract you just enough
where you miss something that’s important that was feeding
your faith. You get over in your mind, yet out of your spirit,
and get over into your carnal mind. Amen. And, to be carnally
minded is death. So, that’s what was happening to them.
But, Jesus perceived it, and ministered to them. Now then,
this man speaks blasphemes, verse seven. Who can forgive
sins but God only? Immediately when Jesus perceived in his
spirit that they sow reason within themselves, he said unto
them, “Why reason these things in your hearts? Whether is it
easier to say to the sick of the palsy, thy sins be forgiven
thee? Or to say, arise. Take up your bed and walk. But that
you may know that the son of man hath power on earth it forgive
sin.” He saith to the sick of the palsy, “I say unto thee.”
Now, notice he’s using his words as tools. He didn’t just say,
“Arise.” He said, “I say unto you.” So, we know he believed
it in his heart. And, he said it with his mouth, and knew it
would come to pass if the man would act on it. If he would act
on it, because when he said it, he’s still paralyzed. He’s still
lying there … he had to act. Now, and immediately he arose.
Took up the bed, went forth before them all, in so much they
were all amazed and glorified God saying we never saw it on
this fashion. So, see, they were amazed and glorified God. They
were not a hostile crowd. Now, let’s go to the book of Luke, in
the fifth chapter again, please. Luke 5:17. And it came to
pass on a certain day as he was teaching. So, we found out
that he preached and that he’s teaching. That there were
pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which will come
out of every town of Galilee and Judah, and Jerusalem. Amen.
And, the power of the Lord was present to heal them. The power
of the Lord was present to heal them. Well, how was the power
present? Well, Jesus was there. The power was present. Amen?
It’s his will for all them to be healed. And, the word was
there. So, praise God. They were hearing the word. Now, up until
they got interrupted we don’t know how long that had been.
But, we do know that he was preaching and teaching. Amen?
And preaching and teaching the blessing of Abraham, and not the
law. Amen? So, since that was happening, we know faith was
coming because they were not hostile. They had come to his
home to hear him. Amen. Oh! Glory be to God. So, we know
faith was coming. Now, Jesus is the healer, and he’s the same
yesterday, today, and forever. But he needs you
to receive him. DELWIN: I’m Delwin
Williams. This is my lovely wife, Joy. When I was around 30
years old I started searching. I was in my medical training as a
psychiatrist, and I realized I didn’t have a lot of answers for
certain questions that people were dealing with. I started
seeing the Kenneth Copland Ministries on television. They
gave me information in terms of understanding the human mind in
some ways that I wasn’t getting in my training in psychiatry.
But, it also helped me to become a better person. It helped me
to develop a closer relationship with the Lord. JOY: Well, I
was in bed that night, and I had some excruciating pain in my
sides. I looked at my husband and I said, “Something is really
wrong here.” He started asking me some questions, and realized
I had a fever. Usually means that I have an infection. So,
they looked me over really well and advised him to take me to a
hospital immediately. It took a long time before they discovered
exactly what was going on, and discovered the E-coli in my
blood system. DELWIN: She had a very serious infection. She
was septic throughout her entire body. That’s a very poor
prognosis. JOY: They put me on a morphine drip because the pain
was just unbearable. They didn’t know what to do. They just
wanted to get to the most important organs first. Most
people, when they have what I have, they don’t survive.
DELWIN: I began to realize it’s important not to just believe
the prognosis. So, I didn’t accept that prognosis. I
encouraged Joy not to accept it, again because of plugging into a
terrific ministry like Kenneth Copland Ministries, I’ve
realized that God has the healing power. We needed to
stand on his word, in terms of turning that situation around.
JOY: During that time I realized I had fallen in love with what
Jesus was doing for me, and what he was doing through me, and
the gift that he gave me through song. And, had forgotten all
about just the love with him. And then, the night that I
just … I had gotten to a point where I didn’t want to … I
didn’t want to live anymore. I just said, “I’m ready to go
home Father. It’s okay. Take me home.” Then, I heard the Lord
call my name. He said, “Joy!” I said, “Yes Lord?” He said, “Do
you love me?” I said, “With all my heart!” He said, “Then feed
my sheep.” I said, “Oh, I can’t do that. You said that to Peter.
I don’t know how to do that. I just want to go home. I just
want to go. I don’t want to be here in this pain anymore.”
Then, the next night almost the same time, and I heard Jesus
call my name again. He said, “Joy?” I said, “Yes Lord.” “Do
you love me?” I said, “Yes, with all my heart.” He said, “Then,
feed my sheep.” I said, “If that’s what you want that’s what
I’ll do for the rest of my life. You won’t have to be concerned
about me ever.” He came, and he walked towards me. He took his
right hand, and he put it on my shoulder. He said, “Be healed.”
DELWIN: That morning we started to see the effects of her
improving. The physicians were dumbfounded by that because
they didn’t … they hadn’t done anything different. They were
expecting the worse, but Jesus had turned it around, and it’s
exciting. JOY: Well, after I was released from the hospital my
husband and I went to go to get a status from my gynecologist of
the six fibroids. One in which was about seven centimeters
long. She asked if I had had surgery. We both looked at
each other and smiled. Kind of chuckled. She said, “As if
somebody surgically went into your body, and cut the veins
that were feeding the fibroids. They’re dead.” She said, “I can
barely see them. What happened?” So, we had a chance to minister
to her too. I don’t have any fibroids. I’m pain free. I’m
living a life that is just incredible. I have
the…minister at our music ministry at Eagle Mountain
International Church. Now, I’m traveling with Kenneth Copland
Ministries. I’m singing on a praise and worship team there.
So, I’m spreading the good news through song. And,
wherever I go I’m always telling people how
good the Lord is. That he’s faithful. What a
joy it is to know him. ANNOUNCER: We hope you enjoyed
today’s teaching from Kenneth Copeland Ministries. And
remember Jesus is Lord.
