Shoulder healed in Manhattan with Torben Sondergaard
Did Jesus have compassion and restore limbs- yes. Did he set people free from the oppression of sickness- yes. Did He come to set the captives free and heal the brokenhearted-yes. Did he do all these miracles just for the sake of the miracles-heck NO!
He did it so people would come to know God is real, know that He loves us, and know that He desires a deeper, daily fellowship with each of us through knowing His Son.
So when we go out and heal the sick, it’s not just because we have compassion and want to see people get healed, but the end game should always be to try and share the good news of the Gospel, bringing their hearts to a place of true repentance so they may see their need for a savior, get set free, and come to know Christ. It’s really simple.
It’s through this tool of healing, that many may come to know the saving grace of our Lord and as a result desire fellowship with their very creator. This is the very model Jesus and the first century church used- and it was so powerful that many were added to the body daily.
Our hope is that anyone who encounters God through healing may be so touched that they may be willing to follow Christ and find freedom in Him. That they may learn to lay down their lives for the sake of Love and to live the abundant life God intended for each of us.
Our ultimate goal in healing and sharing the good news is that each one we touch may desire more freedom and come to know the full eternal life found only in Him, repent, be baptized in water as a new creation in Christ, be baptized in the Holy Spirit, and then go out with the same demonstration of God’s power and do the same for others.
If we follow Jesus, then our call is the same as the first disciples and it’s the model for us to follow as an example of how the kingdom is ever expanding.
I don’t know about you but I’m so excited and can’t wait to see how God leads this movement with a true demonstration of Gods power in the coming days/months/years, though us, His disciples!
Is anyone else out there excited?
Luke 9; Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. 2 He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick
(In this video, Torben Søndergaard spent another 15 minutes intimately talking with this young man, praying with him, and leading him to a deeper desire to know and walk with Jesus. The young man seemed really hungry to know God and was visibly excited when Torben left his card to learn more through his website teachings – we can all do this!)
