May You Prosper and Be In Good Health

Thar be times when we know not what ter pray fer those we love, especially folks who be getting up in years. Saul Paul offers this good word as an example of how we can bring them we love ter the feet of Jesus.

I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in good health, even as your soul is getting along well.  (3 John 2)

Name aloud fellers and lasses who need a wee bit of health prosperity, wealth prosperity, relationship prosperity. If we kin wish it, we kin pray it. If we kin pray it with sincere faith, we kin be sure Skipper hears. And if Skip hears, he may very well move on our behalf.

Our praying with expectancy be an act of faith, a witness ter our spirit that we believe the Sun remains in the healing business. Be ya a feller or lass of little faith? Take a risk. Ask Skipper ter heal them ya love.

“Above all …” be Saul Paul’s heart. If that also be yer heart’s desire fer them ya love , take ’em ter Skip and his Sun who be above all things. Then watch with expectancy as they act in a mighty way on yer behalf.

Are We Rushing Ter Take Hold of This Sun — Luke 6:17-20

Are We Rushing Ter Take Hold of This Sun

Jesus went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon, who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by evil, unclean spirits were cured. All the people tried to touch him because power was coming from him and healing everyone. (Luke 6:17-20)

Thar be many encouraging circumstances in this story ’bout the way the Sun draws us ter himself.

  • The Sun stood on level ground. He placed no barriers be fer folks. He did not ask ’em ter “come up” ter his level. No, he made thar steps level so all could get ter him. (Proverbs 4:26)
  • Jesus put in a full day’s work. The crowd was large, a goodly number from far away. And he turned back narry a one.
  • Folks came from all over. Healing from the Sun not be reserved for one group, a special class, but fer all, no matter whar ya be from.
  • The folks who come caught a vision of the Sun healing ’em. A good many times we come ter the Sun without any expectations, without any vision, without any real hope that things ‘ill change fer us. But the fellers and lasses who come ter the Sun in this story knowed that a little bit of the Sun would bring a heaping big load of healing fer ’em.
  • Diseases and evil spirits skedaddled. Sickness don’ scare the Sun. Sickness kin not abide in his presence. Same with evil spirits. While demons might frighten fearful folks, when the Sun shows up, it be the demons who tremble. Think on the power of the Sun’s presence the next time someone ya love be sick or harassed by a wicked spirit. Bring them ya love by name ter the Sun so they kin be healed. Introduce the sickness or spirit ter the Sun. Once you make the introduction, sickness and spirits ‘ill leave, fer darkness kin not abide in the presence of light.
  • Folks tried ter touch the Sun and with good reason. Jest a wee bit of his cloak be enough fer power ter flow out of him. This be active faith, the sort that be born in our hearts. Because a little touch from the Sun be enough ter change a life, make it yer task ter press through crowds and take hold of the Sun.
  • Power flowed from the Sun inter folks. Ne’er think that the Sun had an easy life. Most all his days whar hard, laborious, tiresome work. Most nights he put his head down exhausted. Thing be, we kin ‘ave that power in us if only we ‘ill believe that the righteousness of the Sun be in us through his saving mercy. Tap inter his power and touch others with his love and fergiving mercy!
  • The Sun healed ’em all. He don’ say, “Time’s up. I gotta go. Sorry.” No, sir. He stays and goes about his father’s business ’til all get healed.

This be the Sun who saves us, who heals us, who helps us in our times of need. This be the Sun who came that we might have life and have it ter the full. Question be, are we rushing ter take hold of this Sun? And if not, what be our excuse?

The Power of Skipper Be Present in You Ter Heal — Luke 5:17

Jesus’ Authority, Our Healing

The Power of Skipper Be Present in You Ter Heal

The power of the Lord was present to heal them. (Luke 5:17)

One time four fellers brought a paralyzed chap ter the place whar the Sun be teaching. Lowering the chap down through a hole in the roof, the four placed thar friend at the feet of the Sun. When the Sun seen thar faith, he said ter tha feller on the mat, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.” (Luke 5:20-21)

The Sun’s declaration caused a ruckus, fer only Skipper kin fergive sins. But think on this a wee little bit:

All our sickness be the result of sin — if not ours then from the curse that comes from original sin. When Skip created Adam and Eve he made ’em perfect. They whar not meant ter suffer sickness. But when sin took root in thar bodies, it bore sickness as its fruit.

Only the thing is, sin cannot abide in the presence of righteousness. Fer this reason when the Sun says, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.” he be declaring that the root of the chap’s affliction, sin, and its fruit, sickness, be cast out.

Doctor Luke makes a profound statement when he says, “The power of the Lord was present to heal them.” If the Sun be present and he be the righteousness of his father, Skipper, then indeed the Lord’s power whar present in that home ter heal, fergive sins, and make folks whole.

Anytime righteousness be present, sins ‘ill be fergiven and healing ‘ill flow.

Saul Paul wrote ter folks in Corinth that, “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” (2 Corinthians 5:21) Therefer, if we be in the Sun and the Sun be in us, then the righteousness of Skipper also be in us. And because we be fully righteous through the blood of the Sun, when we walk inter a place, the power of Skipper be present ter heal.

We ‘ill ne’er be righteous on our own account, but in the Sun we be holy and blameless. Therefer, make it yer task ter go about healing all and fergving all of thar sins in the mighty name of the Sun.
