AFTER-WORDS: "Healing" pt 2 of 2


AFTER-WORDS
"Learning What To Do After-Wards"

BEING FURIOUS AT GOD..........

I didn't have the emotions in order. Being mad at God I couldn't think thru the experience I was having, I only knew that just like the Bible Teaching that Pastor Christ gave in the present time.......

....I had nothing to give this lame man not even faith and my "other missionary and I just dropped this man on his face for "a healing"....a healing that didn't happen and I "saw" it coming.

 AFTER-WORDS......

I spent that night alone on the hill above where we were building the church. I cried and wept bitter tears and really didn't want to see the other missionaries as each always wanted "to do" something and drag me along because I had to "translate".

(And translating was exhausting work)

All the next day I spent framing, and nailing, ignoring requests to go "to" places people wanted me to translate for them and I worked on the church till nightfall where every night we as missionaries gave a bible teaching.

This night Mamacita hasd Dave Staicoff teach and Dave had me translate for him. He would tell a short portion then look at me, I would tell the story in Spanish. We went back and forth like this part of the night.




FAST FORWARD....

I was TRANSLATING.........when there was a commotion at the back of the church. A small crowd of people was following someone who walked in the church and sat down in the front.

It was the the old man with toothpick stick legs that now had muscle tone where no evidence of the "mass" had been before.


BACK TRACK....

Chuck Smith was teaching on the Gifts of the Spirit and healing. It was an incredible story of Chuck taking a phone call from a woman who Chuck prayed a "token prayer" but had no "faith" that her prayers would be answered of that what she was asking would be granted in a healing.

Chuck tells the story of how God busted him by healing the woman and her testimony to Chuck was recorded by Chuck as a witness to the lack of need of faith for healing, but simply God decidingf to heal WHEN HE DECIDES TO HEAL.

FAST FORWARD....

Chris wrapped up his teaching and I smiled.

I recalled the night the man walked into Church about 30 years ago and changed my life and teaching on healing. His tears of joy, my tears of shame, all our testimony when we got back to "home churches" of the gifts of healing and "other incidents we say and experienced.

How the entire Chuck story flooded my brain every time some one teaches from Acts and all the miraculous I have seen and done as well as prayed and heard tell of.

Listening to Acts when people teach it often makes me smile of many memories I have had of same experiences and many I have yet to see and hear tell of because........

AFTERWARDS.......

It isn't about listening to Pastor Chris tell you about what Peter did and a lame man got healed........

IT'S ABOUT YOU LIVING YOUR BIBLE TEACHING

Even as I have done, even as I do, even as you will if you but just go and do........

AS YOU HAVE HEARD....

"and he that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit of God says.......AFTERWORDS
