WHAT'S WRONG WITH USING THE NAME OF JESUS TO HEAL?

Mark 16:17–18 (NKJV)17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."We all acknowledge these scriptures contain the Great Commission Jesus gave to His apostles. Jesus said, "In My Name…they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." Is there anything wrong with invoking the Name of Jesus and saying to the sick, "In the Name of Jesus, be healed?" There is absolutely nothing wrong with saying, "In the Name of Jesus, I command your body to be healed!" When we invoke the Name of Jesus in obedience to the Great Commission given by Jesus, is it not Jesus Who heals the sick? It is as if Jesus is the One Who commands the sick to be healed. It is like Jesus is right there with me, and He heals the sick by the power of the Holy Spirit. When Jesus was on earth, He also healed by the power of the Holy Spirit.It happened after Peter was baptised with the Holy Spirit and received the gift of speaking in unknown tongues. One day, during the hour of prayer, he was at the temple in front of the Gate called Beautiful, where a lame man sat asking for offerings. Acts 3:6 (NKJV) Then Peter said, "Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk."In whose name did Peter command the lame man to walk? Peter used the Name of Jesus, and the lame man stood up and walked. Was not Jesus exalted, and was not He the One Who healed the lame man by the power of the Holy Spirit that day? Indeed, Jesus and His Name were exalted and continue to be exalted whenever Acts chapter 3 is read.So, is there anything wrong with commanding the sick to be healed in Jesus' Name? Absolutely not. However, this kind of thinking has become prevalent in recent times.Just last week, a child in our church was hospitalised due to an asthma attack. She also had eczema on her arms and legs. I laid hands on her and commanded the eczema to leave her body. The father told me she was completely healed of this skin condition the next day!Matthew 16:18–19 (NKJV)18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."If you want to build the Church of Jesus Christ, use the keys of the kingdom of heaven. The Name of Jesus is the key of the kingdom of heaven to heal the sick. It means that Jesus has given us the authority to tread over serpents and scorpions, which are types of sicknesses and diseases. We have the key and the authority. When we use the Name of Jesus to command any sickness to leave, Jesus is in the centre of the healing ministry when we administer to the sick body.

WHATS WRONG WITH USING THE NAME OF JESUS TO HEAL?

Mark 16:17–18 (NKJV)
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 
18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.

We all acknowledge these scriptures contain the Great Commission Jesus gave to His apostles. 

Jesus said, In My Name…they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. Is there anything wrong with invoking the Name of Jesus and saying to the sick, In the Name of Jesus, be healed? There is absolutely nothing wrong with saying, In the Name of Jesus, I command your body to be healed! 

When we invoke the Name of Jesus in obedience to the Great Commission given by Jesus, is it not Jesus Who heals the sick? It is as if Jesus is the One Who commands the sick to be healed. It is like Jesus is right there with me, and He heals the sick by the power of the Holy Spirit. When Jesus was on earth, He also healed by the power of the Holy Spirit.

It happened after Peter was baptised with the Holy Spirit and received the gift of speaking in unknown tongues. One day, during the hour of prayer, he was at the temple in front of the Gate called Beautiful, where a lame man sat asking for offerings. 

Acts 3:6 (NKJV) Then Peter said, Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.

In whose name did Peter command the lame man to walk? Peter used the Name of Jesus, and the lame man stood up and walked. Was not Jesus exalted, and was not He the One Who healed the lame man by the power of the Holy Spirit that day? Indeed, Jesus and His Name were exalted and continue to be exalted whenever Acts chapter 3 is read.

So, is there anything wrong with commanding the sick to be healed in Jesus Name? Absolutely not. However, this kind of thinking has become prevalent in recent times.

Just last week, a child in our church was hospitalised due to an asthma attack. She also had eczema on her arms and legs. I laid hands on her and commanded the eczema to leave her body. The father told me she was completely healed of this skin condition the next day!

Matthew 16:18–19 (NKJV)
18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 
19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

If you want to build the Church of Jesus Christ, use the keys of the kingdom of heaven. The Name of Jesus is the key of the kingdom of heaven to heal the sick. It means that Jesus has given us the authority to tread over serpents and scorpions, which are types of sicknesses and diseases. We have the key and the authority. When we use the Name of Jesus to command any sickness to leave, Jesus is in the centre of the healing ministry when we administer to the sick body.

用耶稣之名去医治有什么不对吗?

马可福音16:17-1817 信的人必有神迹随着他们,就是:奉我的名赶鬼,说新方言,18 手能拿蛇;若喝了什么毒物,也必不受害;手按病人,病人就必好了。”我们都承认,这些经文就是耶稣给使徒的大使命。耶稣说:“奉我的名……手按病人,病人就必好了。”如果我们使用耶稣之名对病人说:“奉耶稣之名,你得医治吧!”这有什么不对吗?我们说:“我奉耶稣之名命令你的身体得到医治!”也完全无可厚非。当我们顺服耶稣交托的大使命,运用耶稣之名时,难道不是耶稣自己在医治病人吗?这就相当于耶稣在命令病人得医治,相当于耶稣就在我旁边,是祂用圣灵的大能治好了病人。耶稣活在世上时,也是靠着圣灵的能力来医治病人的。彼得受了圣灵的洗、领受了说方言的恩赐后,发生了一件事。有一天,大约是在祷告的时候,他在美门口看到一个瘸子,坐在那里乞讨。使徒行传3:6 彼得说:“金银我都没有,只把我所有的给你。我奉拿撒勒人耶稣基督的名,叫你起来行走。”彼得是奉谁的名去命令那个瘸腿的人行走的?彼得用的是耶稣之名,于是那个瘸子就站起来行走了。难道耶稣没有被高举吗?难道不是祂靠着圣灵的能力治好了那个瘸子吗?千真万确,是耶稣和耶稣之名得到了高举。每当人们读到《使徒行传》第三章,耶稣和耶稣之名都会再一次被高举起来。所以,奉耶稣之名命令病人得医治,这有什么问题吗?一点问题都没有。然而就在最近这段时间里,一些错误的想法却开始蔓延了。就在上星期,我们教会的一个孩子由于哮喘住院了。她的胳膊和腿上也发了湿疹。我为她按手,命令湿疹离开她的身体。她的父亲告诉我,第二天她的皮肤病就彻底好了!马太福音16:18-1918 我还告诉你:你是彼得,我要把我的教会建造在这磐石上,阴间的门不能胜过他。19 我要把天国的钥匙给你,凡你在地上所捆绑的,在天上也要捆绑;凡你在地上所释放的,在天上也要释放。”如果你想建造耶稣基督的教会,就要使用天国的钥匙。耶稣之名就是医治病人的天国钥匙。意思就是说,耶稣已经给我们权柄去践踏毒蛇和蝎子,这些都是疾病的预表。我们是有钥匙的人,我们是有权柄的人。当我们服事病人、使用耶稣之名命令疾病离开时,耶稣才是这个医治事工的中心。那个人康复后,就会荣耀并高举耶稣的名!耀光牧师新加坡信心教会请访问我们的中文播客,faithchurch.sg/牧师手札/#牧师手札 ...

用耶稣之名去医治有什么不对吗?

马可福音16:17-18
17 信的人必有神迹随着他们,就是:奉我的名赶鬼,说新方言,
18 手能拿蛇;若喝了什么毒物,也必不受害;手按病人,病人就必好了。”

我们都承认,这些经文就是耶稣给使徒的大使命。

耶稣说:“奉我的名……手按病人,病人就必好了。”如果我们使用耶稣之名对病人说:“奉耶稣之名,你得医治吧!”这有什么不对吗?我们说:“我奉耶稣之名命令你的身体得到医治!”也完全无可厚非。

当我们顺服耶稣交托的大使命,运用耶稣之名时,难道不是耶稣自己在医治病人吗?这就相当于耶稣在命令病人得医治,相当于耶稣就在我旁边,是祂用圣灵的大能治好了病人。耶稣活在世上时,也是靠着圣灵的能力来医治病人的。

彼得受了圣灵的洗、领受了说方言的恩赐后,发生了一件事。有一天,大约是在祷告的时候,他在美门口看到一个瘸子,坐在那里乞讨。

使徒行传3:6 彼得说:“金银我都没有,只把我所有的给你。我奉拿撒勒人耶稣基督的名,叫你起来行走。”

彼得是奉谁的名去命令那个瘸腿的人行走的?彼得用的是耶稣之名,于是那个瘸子就站起来行走了。难道耶稣没有被高举吗?难道不是祂靠着圣灵的能力治好了那个瘸子吗?千真万确,是耶稣和耶稣之名得到了高举。每当人们读到《使徒行传》第三章,耶稣和耶稣之名都会再一次被高举起来。

所以,奉耶稣之名命令病人得医治,这有什么问题吗?一点问题都没有。然而就在最近这段时间里,一些错误的想法却开始蔓延了。

就在上星期,我们教会的一个孩子由于哮喘住院了。她的胳膊和腿上也发了湿疹。我为她按手,命令湿疹离开她的身体。她的父亲告诉我,第二天她的皮肤病就彻底好了!

马太福音16:18-19
18 我还告诉你:你是彼得,我要把我的教会建造在这磐石上,阴间的门不能胜过他。
19 我要把天国的钥匙给你,凡你在地上所捆绑的,在天上也要捆绑;凡你在地上所释放的,在天上也要释放。”

如果你想建造耶稣基督的教会,就要使用天国的钥匙。耶稣之名就是医治病人的天国钥匙。意思就是说,耶稣已经给我们权柄去践踏毒蛇和蝎子,这些都是疾病的预表。我们是有钥匙的人,我们是有权柄的人。当我们服事病人、使用耶稣之名命令疾病离开时,耶稣才是这个医治事工的中心。那个人康复后,就会荣耀并高举耶稣的名!
