Healing Hands of Jesus

    I just came from SALT on the Street, a ministry for the homeless. Food, clothing, information about services, and tons of love is given out to all who come. Tonight, I saw the healing hands of Jesus at work in the lives of some who are weak and on the verge of giving up.

    Tonight I saw the Healing hands of Jesus remove the pain from a young man's back, and take the pain out of an old man's neck. Tonight I saw a crowd of folks who normally are talking, and sometimes shouting sit, and listen intently about the healing hands of Jesus, and the eternal love of Christ. Tonight I saw a softness come over the face of hardened men of the street. God is reaching the sin sick soul, He's stirring up the yearnings of fulfillment to those who have thought themselves to be empty of emotions. Praise you LORD!!!

      Wow. I nearly puked a little at this one. sad

      I see Jesus gets the credit for the healing. Does he also get the credit for the young man who dies age 12 of leukemia?

      Talk to Mikel - he knows what Jesus would think and say. wink ....  (or at least he thinks he does lololol).

      I see you are here solely to spread the word of the Lord. You are going to find a fair amount of us are sick and tired of people whose sole purpose in joining the site is to do this and generally we will point out the obvious fact that your invisible super being is a figment of your imagination.  big_smile

        I would say we as humans get the credit for killing the 12 year old.
        In case you missed it, we are the ones who sinned not God! aka Jesus if you wanna stay biblical, and therefore God has nothing to do with that child dying.

      Believe nothing on the faith of traditions,
      even though they have been held in honor
      for many generations and in diverse places.
      Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it.
      Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past.
      Do not believe what you yourself have imagined,
      persuading yourself that a God inspires you.
      Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests.
      After examination, believe what you yourself have tested
      and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

      I am a healer, and have studied the different levels of potential in receiving the light of healing. When I let the light of the highest spirit flow through my body and to the person asking for healing I see thousands of ways to receive the healing.
      It is always about how much the human body is prepared.

    Without Jesus we still have God, without God, Jesus is irrelevant.

    Sounds like a great ministry.
    I hope all the efforts prove effective, in that the benefactors remember the source of these blessings are from the love of God, and the following of his commandment to love one another (aka The Golden Rule).
    I also hope the venue, organizers, and workers are all volunteers, not people in it for filthy lucre. If so, it would truly demonstrate the love of fellow man.
    Good Tidings nevertheless. It is wonderful that you witnessed this generosity, and ascribe this to the providence of the Lord, and to the healing Hand of Jesus.

      actually there are psychic healers... Jesus himself learned the skill in his travels in China and India.   you can read about it in The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ by Levi S. Dowling.  all humans have the innate power to heal themselves. it's just not fully developed in the vast majority.  healers are just facilitators of this innate ability.  it wasn't Jesus' Healing Hands but the person's faith that they were being healed that healed them.  if you read the KJV, Jesus himself said to the woman who had an issue of blood: "your faith has made you whole" when she was healed.  he never took the credit and true healers don't.

        (nods) i am a big believer in the healing power of the mind. modern medicine is also taking seriously spiritual and emotional factors when treating cancer patients and accept that the mind plays a big role.

        however i don't think people get miraculously healed by these tent preachers, but it makes those who witness these events feel good so who am i to judge.

        Sorry hamstersmessiah, but that is not a good criterion for deciding if a healer is "true" or not. I could be a crook and still claim it wasn't me but God doing the "healing." What would I care, long as I got the money / status / accolades / ego-boost or what-have-you

          hamstersmessiahposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          what i meant was that the healer ascribes the act of healing to the person who received the gift's faith in themselves, the healed.  not a higher power.  you missed my point.  "your faith has made you whole" meant Jesus gave credit to the woman for her miracle of healing imho.

            he was obedient to his earthly parents.
            oddly at the wedding feast prior to his 'coming out', his mother actually encourages him to turn the water into wine. According to traditional Hebrew custom, unless he was married, he was to live with his parents and foster the knowledge of the scriptures.

            why do non Hebrews and non believers think they know better history than we do? It's annoying. Take a year and study Hebrew law, custom, life, then start barking things about Y`shua and his ways or the law or covenant.

                Regardless of bad grammar, or where Jesus spent the early years of his youth, the question is this: Did Jesus exist and if so, how can we know?

                I'll imagine for the sake of time and space that critics don't assume that the New Testament is a historically valid document. Yet if other documents that came from a non-Christian angle matched up with the description of Jesus in the New Testament, then perhaps there might be more reason for establishing the credibility of his existence. Here follows a list of some ancient secular writers who were very anti-Christian that could be looked at as establishing the historicity of the man called Jesus.

                Cornelius Tacitus, Roman historian, Governor of Asia:  "Christus, the founder of the name, was put to death by Pontius Pilate, procurater of Judea in the region of Tiberius..." (Chron ii 30.6)

                Lucian of Samosata, satirist, second century: "the man who was crucified in Palestine because he introduced this new cult into the world....Furthermore, their first lawgiver persuaded them that they were all brothers of one another after they have transgressed once for all by denying the Greek gods and by worshipping that crucified sophist himself and living under his laws (The Passing Pergrinus)

                Flavius Josephus, historian, second century: Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man...He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was the Christ, and when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men among us, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved Him at the first did not forsake him:..." (Antiquities)

                In the British Museum lies an old manuscript that preserves the text of a letter to his son which encourages his son to pursue wisdom and then states that that those who persecuted wise men were overtaken by misfortune. He cites Socrates, Pythagoras and Christ.

                There are also references from rabbis referring to the Jesus of Nazareth as described by the Old Testament which I will leave out as this comment is far too long.

                I'm not sure what process you have for determining the historicity of someone, but there is a much greater body of evidence that can be established through tests and reason that prove Christ's existence if you're interested to know. Also, quick note about the earlier post, Did Jesus refer/believe himself to be God and how do you know? In John 10, you will see his constant repetition of the small phrase "I am". For a Jewish person, this was synonymous with claiming Deity as God identified himself as "I am" in Exodus. You can see this identification more clearly in John 10:33 when the Jews pick up stones to stone him because, "you, a mere man, claim to be God."  That's just one of several examples though.

                Hope that gives you food for thought at least!

                    'the lack of courage causes flaws in conviction and the increase of passions far exceeding necessity, as it were. Folly is mans pillow, his thoughts a casket of ambiguity. For its sake alone -being itself- denies even its maker peace.'

          He also morns for those who are hurting or etc. He is also proud of those who helps him encourage those, as well. He calls them "Fishers of men". I for one am a believer. For those who believes in him and prays to him with their challenges and thanks him for all he has given us. If you have concerns about God you may want to discuss them with a trusted family pastor.

    I know and understand the mind and body can relate in ways of healing, and it is no miracle healer or any pissant god doing it, as you say it is belief. It could be belief in a dog turd, same result. By the way, the back pain will be back. Religious healing is not permanent as the sub-conscious is not so gullible as the conscious mind! The condition returns due to the belief dropping away. smile

    It was Lois Rose who spent 25 years investigating hundreds of faith-healing cures and never found one.

    "I have been unsuccessful. After nearly twenty years of work I have yet to find one 'miracle cure'; and without that (or, alternatively, massive statistics which others must provide) I cannot be convinced of the efficacy of what is commonly termed faith healing."

    It's all very confusing when someone gets cured of something and others don't. Does Jesus roll the dice on these cases? How does it work?

    I do not believe in healers other than self healers. When I got lyposarcoma cancer it produced an enormous lump on my back before 4 biopsies found any malignancy.
    After 4 incisional byopsies no cancer was discovered.

    On the advice of a doctor at a major hospital I went to see a Chinese doctor who performed a process that involved him putting his energy into the area of the lump. He appeared exhausted after the treatment, he had been recommended by a highly qualified doctor so I believed it may help.

    he said he could do no more, that he felt it was cancer and I should have surgery if it was offered.

    The next day the lump was visibly reduced in size! I admit to being shocked by this, as were my wife, kids and friends who had seen it before and after. I thought that was pretty amazing.
    I then got the call from the specialist explaining I would need to have the lump removed
    The tiny gold thread which is the indicator of Lyposarcoma was found in a sectioned biopsy performed on removal.
    Note:
    (I had attempted the removal by a surgeon in between these events. He left the lump in and stitched me up again after 4 hours of trying to get it untangled from around my spinal chord.
    He was exhausted and I was feeling very ill and my skin was grey from too many needles, as he had to keep injecting Novocaine as the problems got bigger and bigger.

    The look on his face when he told me he could not remove it I took to be a death sentence, and a quick one at that! The poor fellow was visibly distressed.

    Long story short, I am still here after the operations.

    As for the "magic medicine" that reduced the size of what proved to be a malignant tumour I have only photographic proof of the size reduction from the Chinese "che" medicine but I do believe my eyes.
    Photo's can be altered, so I do not offer them as any proof.

    The only explanation that seems logical to me is that my mind stepped up to the plate and "received" the apparently highly regarded Chinese medicine man's belief. smile

      I am in China and my everyday doctoring is Chinese medicine, always offered as an and/or western stuff choice. The prescription can be anything from half a gallon of the most bitter herbal stuff that is almost impossible to swallow, to massage, or other seemingly strange practices.

      My slightly cynical mind says that the cures that come without pills or cutting are b*****t    and yet it always works.

    That interests me. I have tried many forms of healing, and have first hand experience of results too, even though I do not understand the process other than to assume a connection being made with my/the patients sub-conscious mind and his illness somehow.
    I could be scientifically convinced of some of them coming from other forms of exchange, but having a long term friend who believes in a Japanese form of healing called Mahakari. (spelling?) I have a lot of observed phenomena, such as my friend and his fellow believers breaking out in huge boils on their bodies apparently the "bad stuff" comes to the surface as a boil to dispel it from the body!This is created with special hand movements like pushing the hands forward and holding the hand over the area as with Chinese doctors. My friend chants strongly while he heals. His healing had no effect on me at all. smile
    Very interesting subject.

      It is very interesting to me also. I do believe this to be possible. I have no understanding of how it works except to think it is some kind of energy transference through deep concentration. Maybe the person trying to receive the energy has to be somehow open to it and maybe it is easier for certain people to transfer energy and receive it. Of course you notice that I say maybe.

    Maybe is as close as I can get too. I am very interested in the mind, as it seems to be able to produce a helluva lot of things that don't enter consciousness.
    For example I spent some tears years ( I will leave the subconscious truth or Freudian slip typo in for your amusement!)in psychotherapy with a top Jungian.
    After establishing my broad archetypical beliefs, symbols and their source in my history we moved to dream therapy for three years.

    I learnt to wake without assistance at exactly 3pm, (the time we discovered when my dreams were richest and write down my dreams verbatim without totally leaving sleep, or when partly awake, which keeps the integrity of the dream whole, without the conscious censorship!
    I was told never to attempt to analyse my dreams until I had a lot of experience and then to just ask myself, "I wonder what that meant" then forget about it. The subconscious then goes to work putting the dream together. I think it works.
    I saw that almost all that I was doing in my life was not deeply thought out by my intelligence, but just a series of reactions to events, (some quite minor) that were driven by fear and a need to know! By the way at this time my business was booming and I had plenty of time as well, I did not go in to therapy to become happy, I decided to learn about myself.

    These days I try to go to that stuff in myself and deal with it by allowing it the space to come in to my conscious mind in the ways where I am best suited to receive it.
    It means questioning what I believe and do all the time, but I have learnt to wait. The answer usually comes if I leave it alone consciously.
    I find my conscious awareness to be so unreliable I wind up behaving like one of those human being things! lol

      This is like vipassana meditation. This is where I can note thoughts and feelings. It reveals the habitual patterns of thinking that I have and once so identified I can work on these thinking patterns to better myslf.

          He is one of those people that would have called the scientists research, that discovered and proved viruses and germs existed, stupid new age baloney because no one before these scientists had ever proven it.

          For this guy, since it wasn't well documented into dim history, obviously these scientists are wrong...

          But for the record, I don't believe in the 'preachers' that perform these 'faith healings' I believe them to be charlatans. If there was something to it, Doctors would be studying it to find a way to duplicate it everytime and these practices would be included in medical journals.
          The energy flows of meditation and some types of massage however, are not the same thing as the 'faith healers'

      Thanks for the link, but it wasn't very helpful and didn't really explain anything about "energy" flow or Metta Meditation. Seems really outdated, too.

      I noticed the link at the bottom of the page that lead me to the Insitute of Noetic Sciencse, and then found this after looking up that institute:

      "Stephen Barrett, organizer of the nonprofit organization Quackwatch, whose website describes itself as a "Guide to Quackery, Health Fraud, and Intelligent Decisions," has stated that he views the Institute of Noetic Sciences "with considerable distrust."

    I was an agnostic.  My brother had been shot in the back and was paralyzed from the waist down.  I woman Evangelist came in and began to talk to us.  I asked a bunch of questions, trying to make her look stupid.  She asked my brother if he wanted her to pray for him and he said yes.  After she prayed from him, his legs began to move.  Later that week he was able to walk again.

              healing is the evidence of cure.

              faith is knowing you were never meant to be ill & are cured.
              prayer is manifesting/speaking/testifying to that faith.
              healing is the evidence.

    I've always pointed out this severally; you see, this conversation we're having right now when documented, there will be a set of people in the next 100-200 years if the earth remains who will never believe it existed for real. Jesus existed, wrought even more than those miracles as documented in the scriptures. Well He did delegate us to do even greater works than Him while on earth. John 14:12-14. Miracles are real today! Anyone who believe and plugs in faith in the great tool(the name of Jesus) will definitely produce miracles anytime, anywhere. It's a faith walk and not by senses.

    Let me rewrite webster, babylon, wikipedia, etc for that definition.

    "evidence of healing" points out that process is complete but when we use term" healing" it points out that as process to cure, regain health etc.

      Twenty One Daysposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      yes, sky, i am aware of 'how it is said'.

      healing is the evidence, why? as you said regaining.
      like being thirsty and drinking water. You must first be thirsty, then drink the water and wait for the re-energizing of the body.
      when that regeneration occurs, you are 'refreshed'. same with healing. once the restoration happens you are healed.

      perhaps this is why many are not healed...


      ps, how are you?
