Healing the new testament method
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
I wish to begin this blog with an example of the author and finisher of our Faith; Jesus Christ himself. As he was coming to the close of his ministry there is a verse that sums up the attitude, that I believe he wishes us to bring into our struggles, sicknesses and tribulations. It is found in Luke 9:51 where the KJV reads ‘he set his face steadfastly to go to Jerusalem.’ Jesus faced the greatest hour of his trail with determination and conviction that God his Father would not let him down. We have been given the mind of Christ; therefore we are to contend with God over our sickness with determination, conviction and utter belief that we will be healed. I have set out in my blog ‘Contending for our Healing – part two,’ the steps this entails. In my last blog......
Healing myths exposed
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
The scriptures are clear that the gifts of the spirit, which are listed in 1 Corinthians 12, are for the edification and the building up of the body of Christ. Therefore we have the following chapters setting out Paul’s concerns that such manifestation of the gifts are done in an orderly and proper manner. We are all aware that there are counterfeit gifts that operate so closely to the gifts from the Holy Spirit that it is difficult to discern between the two. In fact I believe it has been documented that such ‘bogus’ gifts can operate under the authority of the church of God. Such is the ability of the enemy to deceive the children of God. All this is by way of an introduction to the subject of healing that has caused endless heartache and discouragement over the......
Contending for our health - part two
John Knox+

Strategies to enjoy Healing This bog flows on from part one of the same title, in which I outlined the case for the requirement, that all who are disciples of Jesus need to cooperate with God in their ongoing salvation. I endeavored to support this with passages of scripture showing that we are in a covenant relationship and we have our responsibilities to work with God. If you have not read that blog it may be wise to do so before proceeding with this blog. I will attempt in this blog to outline the pro active cooperation that is expected of us in regards to safe guarding our calling and finishing the race. Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. 2 Peter 1:10 These steps include the responsibilities that I......
Contending for our health part one.
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
This thought rattled me the other day as I heard this quoted by Doug Addison for I realized that this was the answer to my prayers as to the next blog. As I listened to the Holy Spirit over the nest days I realized that this ‘contending’ was the modus operandi that I had been using over my battle concerning my prostate. As they say the pieces began to fall the right way up. Also this revelation can easily flow on from my series on Genesis 22 in that we all have at certain times mountains to climb. As I began my research I came across three verses in the NIV New Testament that use the word contending. The first two are from Colossians 1:29-Colossians 2:1 To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me. I want you to know how hard I am......
Thoughts from the holy spirit on healing
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
I wish to share quickly some thoughts that the Holy Spirit has taught me on healing grouped under eight simple 'bullet points. 1/ God is more powerful than your sickness/disease This is not an intellectual assent. For it is only until you have experienced his healing will you never be in doubt that he heals today. This moves into a hunger and a desire to experience the touch of his hand. 2/ Having a 'no doubt' Faith There must not even be a hint or shadow of a 'maybe' or a 'why not' or a 'not again I thought I was healed.' The Bible calls this trust 'unwavering faith' as in Abraham. I have found it profitable to not rely on my faith but the faith of Christ born into me. 3/ Healing is part and parcel of God's Blessing This is laid out in the......
Healing according to jesus
John Knox+

I wish to draw out three simple truths from Luke’s gospel of the ten lepers that were healed. We can read this from Luke 17:11-19. 11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus travelled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 2 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance 3 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” 14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed. 15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. 6 He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan. 17 Jesus asked, ‘Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 8 Has no one returned to give......
Scars on our heart ~ not healed
John Knox+

The Spiritof the SovereignLordis on me, because theLordhas anointedme to proclaim good newsto the poor. He has sent me to bind upthe brokenhearted, to proclaim freedomfor the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, 2to proclaim the year of theLord's favor and the day of vengeanceof our God, to comfortall who mourn, provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow on them a crownof beauty instead of ashes the oilof joy instead of mourning and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. Isaiah 61 As has been prophesied by the Lords servants, his word for this time and seasons of the Jewish year; 5777 is to be one of transition and transformation as the Lord of Hosts aligns his four chariots, to blow over the earth. I believe the election of president-elect of the USA......
