PROVERBS 29:18 Must have an "aim" - of growth; healing; greatness for God! 
ISAIAH 53:10,5 Our sins/sicknesses were laid on Christ! = we are healed!! See that all was laid on Jesus' back on the cross, and you will be healed and made fully whole! See your sickness back on the body of Jesus!!! - this is not imagining - but faith vision. Therefore see 3 John 2.

MALACHI 4:2 "fear my name..."
PROVERBS 3:5-7 "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In ALL thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart (entirely) from evil" (Amp.) = The conditions.

ROMANS 8:11 Jesus lives in you! - We have the same resurrection power that brought Jesus right out of the grave!!!
MATTHEW 12:28-29 Bind the spirit in the powerful Name of Jesus - incurable diseases are satanic spirits... they can attack a Christian's body & mind, but not our spirit or soul!
EPHESIANS 6:12 *** We are fighting against unseen powers! Satan wants your mind! - he wants your soul, but he attacks through the mind! So put the Word of God in your mind as your defence and to permeate your spirit!!!
JAMES 4:3 "Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss." Know what you are praying for and about!
JOHN 8:44 Don't ask the demon its name - they lie!
3 JOHN 2 God wants us to have Divine Health! There is no evidence that a demon actually has to "dwell in" a person to cause a "spirit of pain"... they can simply attack a part of the body, possibly even to implant cancer into the body.

The Gift of Faith

  The Holy Spirit gives gifts as He wills, and He gives them to "whosoever will!"
  The gift of faith operates differently! - It will come through God speaking or through revelation knowledge!
  Presumption can do harm - faith can heal!
  It is not in operation at all times, and is not something for which you can "pray through". It is something that God sovereignly drops as He wills, at a specific time and for a specific purpose.
ACTS 3:6-7 "Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength."
LUKE 1:37 "For with God nothing shall be impossible."
MATTHEW 17:20 "...And NOTHING shall be IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU."

Creative Miracles 

GENESIS 1:3 "Let there be light..."
GENESIS 1:21 "And God CREATED great whales, and every living creature..."
ROMANS 4:17 God "quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were."
MATTHEW 15:31 "...the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel."
LUKE 6:8 "...Rise up, and stand forth in the midst." (= to be seen!)
HEBREWS 11:3 "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear" - there are times when one commands a part to be formed in a body, and suddenly something appears that was not there before! We must believe that we have the power of God and the authority of Jesus to apply this power. We must believe that we are doing the Will of the Father; that we are doing it for His pleasure and His glory. We must be willing to walk on "spiritual water" and never be concerned with what others think about us. We must act upon what the Word of God declares that others have done, and believe that:
JOHN 14:12-13 "...He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son."
PSALM 42:11 Expect God to act!

Growing Out Arms and Legs

  80% of the world's population have back problems, and this is one of the greatest single ailments in the world!
  The nervous system controls and co-ordinates all organs and structures of the human body. Misalignments of spinal vertebrae and discs may cause irritation to the nervous system and affect the structures, organs, and functions which may result in certain conditions mentioned above.
  For example - vertebra number 2c, second from the top of the spine, protects the nerve which controls the eyes, optic nerves, auditory nerves, sinuses, mastoid bones, tongue and forehead.
  Often deafness is caused by a pinched nerve in the back, and healing of the spine will cause healing of hearing.

General Notes on Healing

  God wants us to walk in Divine Health!
ACTS 1:8 We receive POWER after being filled with the Holy Spirit.
PSALM 111:1-4 Important to thank God - come to Him in worship.
GALATIANS 2:20 When you know Jesus is living in you, you'll know how to stop sinning - it's a revelation! Jesus lives in us! = Born again!
  Incurable diseases are spirits.
  Don't let the person being prayed for speak/pray, etc. when you are praying for them - they must concentrate on what is being prayed to be able to agree with an "Amen".
