Feeling like our prayers go unanswered is one of the main reasons Christians get discouraged and lose their faith in God. You don’t know what could be wrong? How can God not fulfill His own promises? The Word says that God forgives our sins and heals our diseases, no pest or plague shall come near us, no evil shall befall us and so many other scriptures with the same promises. My own question was why did I have to undergo the humiliation of that operation if I was believing for my healing?
Yes, the operation I went through did come with its own set of testimonies and wonderful mercy and grace which I can testify of, but still, the question remains: Why did I not receive my healing?
First I must hold before you Romans 8:17: “Although we share in the glory of Christ we also share in His suffering.”
The hardships we go through cause us to grow spiritually. We grow according to the increase of the knowledge of God in us. In my own case the long sick bed and operation I faced caused me to grow in the knowledge of Christ in me.
I had a vision after coming out of the theater. I saw Jesus dancing with happiness. He kept on dancing and as I watched it seemed like his face transformed into the face of my brother who died years ago. My brother and I looked very much alike. As Jesus kept on dancing and twirling, his face kept changing back and forth into his own face and then into my brother’s face. After this vision, I was led to understand that I am in Christ and He is in me. The day that this knowledge of Christ in me is revealed to the children of God it is a glorious day in heaven! That is why Jesus was so happy and dancing. At last, Christ has come in you! This is the purpose of our life on earth! (Gal 2:20, Col 3:3)
When I use communion in the morning I see my Old Self crucified on the cross, just like Jesus sacrificed himself for me, to die daily. Then I rise with Him too, it is no longer I who live but Christ in me! ‘I am hid in Christ’. My life is hidden in Christ, I do what He did. I lay my hands on the sick and they are healed. (Mark 16) I speak to the Mountain and it is removed and thrown into the sea! Nothing shall be impossible to me. (Matt. 7) I am the righteousness of Christ, for I am in Christ. This is what we are meant to do on the earth.
Every day that we are not living and acting like Jesus did we are wasting our time on earth.
I took this all very seriously and meditated on it deeply. I know that this knowledge would not have materialized in me if it was not for the suffering. Furthermore, I still wanted to get answers from The Father. My question was why I did not receive my healing after asking Him to heal me? Jesus said in John 14 that we must ask the Father and He will give us what we ask. Still, I also prayed and spoke the Word of God continually as I know I have had success in speaking the Word before. Then again according to Mark 11:23 we should speak to the mountain. This felt so contradicting. I asked the Lord when should I ask and when should I speak?
After spending time in the Garden I heard the Holy Spirit say: If you don’t know what to do in a situation you ask for wisdom when you know what to do then you speak to the problem, like Mark 11:23-25.
Furthermore, I also learned WHERE you should speak to the problem. We use the Twelve Room prayer. (Click on this link for the free Prayer booklet) We use this prayer to enter into the outer Court where you die to our soulish nature and are washed with the blood of Jesus for a clean conscience. After this, we honor the Holy Spirit in the Holy Place and then move on to The Most Holy Place or the Throne of God where we come into the presence of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in front of thousands of angels and the cloud of witnesses. (Heb 12:22)
Now in the Court of God is where I speak, while I am speaking and declaring the rivers of healing will start flowing from the Throne into the areas into which we are sending it.
In the Courts of God, we are citizens of heaven and fellow heirs of all things. Why would God give us entrance into His Courts if we are not meant to stand there and speak? Why are we given citizenship if we are not meant to be like Jesus? (Eph 2:6) We should speak in heavenly places where we are enthroned with Christ. Many people say we cannot send Angels around, but why does everything I declare in this way happen exactly as I say it should? Because the angels are meant to accomplish God’s Word.
David also mentions these Courts of God. The Courts (more than one) are different rooms of the Twelve Room Prayer into which we go to organize our thoughts and pray in tongues according to the subject of each room.
After receiving wisdom about my situation I go into the Courts of God and declare with Authority the Word of God, sending forth the Angels with the same power Jesus had and also gave us. We have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in the heavens in Christ Jesus. (Eph 1:3)
I hope this gives you a new perspective on growing up in Christ. Please comment and share your story.
