INTRODUCTION












M iracles are real! Irrefutable testimonies abound of God’s saving power in the lives of those who

come to Him in faith. The awesome miracles recorded for us in the Bible and the supernatural works of the Holy Spirit in our day bear testimony to this truth.

Many times when people find themselves in difficult situations, they turn everywhere else except to God, to alleviate the pain, the crisis or the difficulty in which they’ve found themselves. Yet, in Christ Jesus, God has done everything that needs to be done to guarantee a life of constant peace, victory and prosperity.

The Bible says, “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8). Jesus came, died, was buried and rose again to give us life and to make it possible for us to live victoriously.

Isaiah 53:5 says,


HEALING FROM HEAVEN

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

Jesus bore your infirmities and sicknesses on His own body that you may live in divine health; He took your pains that you may enjoy life to the full; He was wounded that your body may never be broken or destroyed by any infirmity. This is actually what the gospel is all about; it’s the good news of Christ’s salvation.

You may be reading this book today and you’re wondering if there can ever be a change in your condition. The infirmity may have been there for so long, and you’re wondering how this could possibly happen. But that’s exactly what God specializes in doing—turning hopeless situations around! So, cheer up! There’s hope for you in Christ, and you can trust Him today for a miracle!

In this second volume of Healing from Heaven, you will read extraordinary testimonies of everyday men and women who dared to believe God for a miracle. You’ll meet Gugulethu Mabele, a young man who was paralyzed due to a gunshot, but was miraculously healed by the power of God! You’ll read of the miraculous healing and transformation of Lorenz Marinescu, who was deaf in his left ear for twenty- seven years! You’ll also encounter Daniella du Toit, who gave birth to a baby despite several doctors’ predictions to the contrary! In the darkest moments of their lives when all seemed lost, they experienced the miraculous!

As you read their extraordinary testimonies, you’ll discover the possibilities of faith and the reality of the power of the Holy Ghost. Be stirred in your spirit and encouraged as you see the demonstration of God’s love.

This book also contains rich and inspiring teaching articles from God’s Word that are sure to strengthen and build your faith in God. They’ll bring fresh revelations to your spirit and prepare you to receive your miracle.

As you read, find the Healer within the pages, and locate yourself in His Word. As He did for those in this book and many others around the world who believed in Him for a miracle, He would do for you. The Bible says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). What He does for one, He would do for another under the same circumstances, because He shows no partiality! (Acts 10:34)

God’s Word stands sure: He has brought healing from heaven to the world, and it’s available for anyone who would believe!

Confession:



I refuse to be moved by the circumstances in my body! My faith is the victory that overcomes the world! Therefore, I declare that my faith is alive and producing results in and for me! I do not stagger at the Word of God through unbelief, but I am strong in faith and I give God the glory!

“And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda. And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy. And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately” (Acts 9:32-34).

I n this account, the Bible tells us of a man named Aeneas and his extraordinary encounter with the Apostle Peter. Obviously, the man was a Christian, because the

Bible tells us that Peter found him while he was visiting the saints at Lydda (Acts 9:32). But Aeneas was sick and paralyzed; he had been bedridden for eight long years. It was in that condition he received Christ, but he remained paralyzed.

The Bible records that one day, Peter went to that region, and thank God, he went to the very house where Aeneas was. When Peter saw him, he declared to him, “Aeneas, Jesus Christ makes you well! Get up and make your bed!” Peter was actually saying, “If you have Jesus, He makes you well. Get up and dress your bed!” No one had preached that part of the gospel to Aeneas before, and the Bible says he jumped out of his bed immediately!

Now, what was different in the message Peter preached to this man? Peter had an understanding of the gospel that is very vital. He understood that Christ lived in the man, and so he had no business being sick. This is the understanding that you should have also.


Healing Is Yours!

It’s easy for many to accept that when a man confesses the Lord Jesus and believes that God raised Him from the dead, he is saved. But they find it difficult to accept that by the same token, that man is delivered from sickness. If the salvation of your spirit is that simple, why do you expect healing for your physical body to be complicated?

Jesus bore your sins as well as your sickness in the same sacrifice. 1 Peter 2:24 says, “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” All you have to do is to accept it

and walk in the light of it.

JESUS MAKES YOU WELL!

I once heard the story of a young girl who was dying and whom the doctors had given a few days to live. She was connected to an oxygen tank, was completely bedridden, and couldn’t eat any normal food. She could only take fluids. Sometime during this period, her mother, who had been taking care of her, gave her a Bible to study as she prepared to die.

One day, while the girl was reading her Bible, she came across 1 Peter 2:21-23:“For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree….”

When she read this, she started sobbing and prayed, “Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for taking my sins away. In a few days, I will be coming to heaven. I am so grateful that you saved my soul.”

Then, she wiped the tears from her eyes and continued reading from where she left off: “...that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed” (1 Peter

2:   24) “By whose stripes I was healed?!” I didn’t know this before!” she exclaimed.

Immediately, she changed her prayer and said, “Lord Jesus, I thank you for bearing my sin. But I see here that you also took my sickness. I didn’t know I was healed. Lord, I’m sorry I’m not coming home so soon!” Then

she removed the tubes connecting her to the oxygen tank, got out of bed, walked around, and shouted for her mother to come.

“What is it honey?” her mother asked as she came running downstairs.

“Mama, please get me breakfast!” the girl said excitedly.

“You haven’t taken any solid food for months; get back in bed!” her mother chided.

“But the Bible says I was healed by the stripes of Jesus!” came her adamant reply.

Now her mother started crying, because she remembered the doctor had warned her that her daughter would lose her mind just before she died. Quickly, she carried her back to her bed and called the doctor. “Doctor, hurry, my daughter is dying!” she cried frantically.

While she was on the phone, her daughter had gotten out of bed again. This time she went into the kitchen, fixed herself a meal and started eating. When her mother saw this, she almost passed out.

Soon after, the doctor came in and she told him, “My daughter’s gone mad. She’s eating solid food, which she hasn’t had for months.”

“But I just read from the Bible that I was healed by the stripes of Jesus! the girl insisted.

She had had a terrible lung condition that had ruptured her lungs, and the doctor knew it was practically impossible for her to

breathe without the oxygen tank. He immediately laid her back in bed and ran several checks, after which he discovered two brand new lungs in her body!

This young girl who had been given up to die would later grow up to get married and have four kids of her own, Hallelujah! Her knowledge and understanding of God’s Word changed everything. The moment she got to know what Christ had done for her, she simply accepted it, acted on it and was healed instantly!


Its Beyond The Senses!

“When I see it, I’ll believe it.” That’s some people’s philosophy. But the truth is, you’ll never believe that way because you’re not going to see it until you first believe. Believing comes ahead of seeing.

After the resurrection of Jesus, He appeared to some of His disciples. But when they told Thomas, who wasn’t there at the time, he said, “...Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe” (John 20:25). That’s the way some folks are. They always think others are trying to play on their intelligence, and that’s sad. But like Jesus said to Thomas, I say to them: “...blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed” (John 20:29).

How many times did you go to an airline’s office to ask for their pilot’s qualifying certificate before flying in their airplane? You simply

HEALING FROM HEAVEN

got in the plane and fastened your seat belt, believing everything was all right. Or how many times did you ask the hospital board for the surgeon’s qualifying certificate before going through a surgery? You simply gave yourself over to the surgeon and trusted him to do a good job.

Now, if you can believe human beings like that, how much more should you believe the time-tested and proven Word of God, which has never failed?

Receiving divine healing works the same as receiving salvation. You may not feel any different, but you know you’re saved because your faith is based on the Word of God, which says, “if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).


In the same way, settle it in your heart for all time that Jesus paid for it all when He died for you on the Cross. The Bible says, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).

When sickness or infirmity tries to bring you down, insist on the

reality of God’s Word and say, “No, I refuse to be sick! Because Christ


lives in me, He makes me well!”

JESUS MAKES YOU WELL!            

Confession:




Christ lives in me; therefore, no sickness or infirmity can dwell in my members. Jesus bore my infirmities on His body, that I may never bear any infirmity in my body. I declare today that my body is strong and healthy! Sickness and infirmity have no place in me; the life of Christ is at work in every fibre of my being, in every bone of my body and in every cell of my blood, in Jesus’ mighty Name. Amen!
