OPEN HEAVEN 19 APRIL 2023 MESSAGE
My God is the All-Sufficient One and He is very generous. When He wants to heal, He heals completely. While doctors often caution on the side effects of prescribed medication, there are no side effects with divine healing. When God heals you, He heals completely.
Some years ago, the wound from a surgery conducted on a woman refused to heal because of her advanced age. I told her daughter to bring a handkerchief, prayed on it and asked her to put it on her mother. She did so and by the next day, not only was the wound healed, they could not find any scar where the doctors had operated.
When my God heals, He does it completely. Beyond complete healing, God is so generous that He can go further to make sure you are never sick again. Exodus 15:26 says, “If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee”.
If you make holiness your lifestyle, God can make it such that sickness will become a stranger to you. Beyond making sure that you don’t fall sick again, my God is so generous that He can allow His healing virtue to start flowing through you. All these can be available to you under certain conditions.
Firstly, you must be a child of God because healing is children’s meat (Matthew 15:21-28). My God is not a healing contractor; He only heals those who are His children. Once in a while, He could heal an unbeliever on credit, expecting the fellow to become a member of His family by accepting Jesus as his or her Lord and Saviour.
If however, the fellow still refuses to become born again, then a worse sickness could follow (John 5:14). To get to the level of overflowing healing virtue by which you would be healing others, you must also have faith. Mark 16:17-18 says you must be a believer. With faith, lay hands on people who need healing and sooner than later, you would begin to see them being healed.

OPEN HEAVEN 19 APRIL 2023 HYMN
HYMN 25 – THE GREAT PHYSICIAN NOW IS NEAR
1. The great Physician now is near,
The sympathising Jesus;
He speaks the drooping heart to cheer,
Oh, hear the voice of Jesus.
Sweetest note in seraph song,
Sweetest name on mortal tongue;
Sweetest carol ever sung,
Jesus, blessed Jesus.
2. Your many sins are all forgiven,
Oh, hear the voice of Jesus;
Go on your way in peace to heaven,
And wear a crown with Jesus.
3. All glory to the risen Lamb!
I now believe in Jesus;
I love the blessed Saviour’s name,
I love the name of Jesus.
4. His name dispels my guilt and fear,
No other name but Jesus;
Oh! how my soul delights to hear
The charming name of Jesus.
