Perhaps one of the most significant things overlooked by many believers in Yeshua is the powerful work of God in these Messianic times. When Yeshua the Messiah came He often healed everyone that needed healing. Matthew 9:35 CJB, “Yeshua went about all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Good News of the Kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and weakness.” Isn’t that amazing! Also, Yeshua sent out His 12 Rabbis and He also trained 70 others to go out and pray. It says in Luke that He sent out, “Seventy other talmidim and sent them on ahead in pairs to every town and place where he himself was about to go;” Luke 10:2, CJB. Yeshua told them in verse 9 to, “Heal the sick there, and tell them, ‘The Kingdom of God is near you.’”
Prayer Class - Main Teaching
This is the main teaching for the prayer class. The other teachings help us to apply the class material. Some are mentioned as handouts in the main teaching.
“Hearing” From God to Serve and Heal
When praying for others we need to ask God for information, rely on the working of the Holy Spirit, and rely on the power of God. So, this is a good time to talk about the gifts or manifestations of the Holy Spirit and how we receive information from God.
Faith in God
We don't want a works kind of faith – in other words not faith in our faith. We are to have faith in God. Sometimes we press ourselves to have faith when our faith needs to be in God. We should have faith in who God is.
God and His Creation
The Bible teaches that creation is not God and that His creation depends on Him. God is the Creator and therefore greater than creation, and that He is always involved in His creation.
Tanakh Signs and Wonders
In the Tanakh (Old Testament portion), God was directing His people and speaking to them, He gave them information and wisdom, and gave them the Tanakh. God protected, healed, did miracles, provided for His people, and created divine appointments. People prayed to God and received answers to prayer, people praised God and sang to God, they encountered God and angels, they pronounced blessings through God, and they did the work of God. God is still God and can do these things today.
Is Our Faith Leaking?
After we realize that God really does heal and we see Him at work, our faith can begin to go down when we don’t see results. For me, faith has been a struggle to remain active and positive.
