Psalm 103:2-3 reads: "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all you iniquities, who heals all your diseases. Isaiah 53:5 reads: "But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed." Exodus 15:26 reads: "If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord you God, and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you." Jeremiah 30:17 reads: "For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds, says the Lord. Matthew 14:14 reads: "And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude, and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick."

Brothers and sisters, God doesn't make people sick. He heals them! It's the devil that puts sickness on us. God would never put sickness on you so stop blaming Him when you get sick. All good things that come to you and your house come down from Heaven from God our Father (James 1:17). All bad things that come to the human race are from satan the god of darkness, the god of this world, and his workers the demons. Brothers and sisters, God our Father loves us. He would never put sickness on us. Question: would you put sickness on your children? I hope not! Hebrew 13:8 reads: "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever." In other words, He not only healed two thousand years ago, He is healing today! Yes, He is still in the healing business! I'm a living witness of His healing. I know He still heals. For those of you who don't know, I have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. I've been going to chemotherapy for the past 5 months and by the grace of God, God is healing me through chemo. The doctor told me I will be around for a long time so don't count me out. Just pray for me. Amen? God says in Proverbs 18:21: "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat it's fruits." In other words, life and death is in the power of the tongue. So choose to speak life over yourself and not death. Psalm 91:16 reads: "With long life I will satisfy Him and show Him my salvation". Isaiah 53:5 reading: "But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes I am healed." These are some of God's promises that I speak over my life every night and every day and every time I get a chance. I do this because I know God CAN'T lie. If He said it, I believe it and I have faith that it will come to pass if I don't doubt God. I ask you to stand on God's promises ( His Word). I don't know about you but I am claiming my healing. I want to close with this. God has benefits for His children. His benefits really improve our condition. Psalm 68:19 reads: "Bless thee the Lord who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation." Psalm 103:1-3 reads: " Bless the Lord, o my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, o my soul, and forget not all His benefits, who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases." Jesus said in Mark 9:23 that all things are possible to him that believeth. Isaiah 55:11 reads: "So shall my word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." Brothers and sisters, if you want to be healed of any sickness that the devil has put on you;

put your faith, hope and trust in Jesus for your healing. Amen..
