Your Understanding of Healing
Go beyond your last understanding of healing, (John 9:7).
We want the next drink of wine, but not last season’s wine. I’m talking about revelation here.
We want to enter into a new level of revelation, but we get to a place where we start having problems, because some of us are Word people. We have lots of Word in us. We know the Word of God. We know the statues of the LORD.
We’ve studied it back and forth, and some of us can read it without opening the Bible. But there is a danger. Jesus and the disciples were walking along when they saw a man in his thirties who had been blind from birth (John 9). The disciples asked Jesus, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” (John 9:2).
Jesus said, “Neither one of them.” That statement violates everything they knew. He said, “Neither one of them. It is for My glory that I’m doing this, and while there’s still light, I’ll be doing these things.”
He healed this blind man, and it surpassed anything the disciples had been taught in the Word. They knew nothing about this aspect of the Word, which had to do with the glory realm beyond where they had ever been.
This can be a huge danger for all of us. We sometimes try counseling, teaching, or attempting to make the blind man understand what a mess he is in, but it has nothing to do with that.
Based on our old, methodical understanding, if someone were blind, deliverance ministers might try to deliver that person of generational iniquity or some sin he or she committed, as opposed to just saying, “The reason she’s blind is for the glory of the LORD. Just get up!”
Beyond Her Comfort Zone!
Mary went beyond her comfort zone: “Whatever He says to you, do it” (John 2:5).
Jesus and the disciples had been invited to a wedding. Jesus’s mother, Mary, was also in attendance, and said to her Son, “The wine has run out for the last season.” The Son said, “What’s that got to do with Me, woman?”
Mary basically told the person in charge of the wedding feast, “Whatever He tells you to do, do it, or we’ll be stuck halfway through this celebration without celebrating the way we’ve come to celebrate.”
Remember, Jesus could not do anything unless Father told Him to, and He didn’t see Father doing anything — until Mary prophesied it. The moment Mary prophesied and said, “We have to have wine, and whatever He tells you to do, do it,”
Father came into action and told the Son, “Act on that prophecy.”
Some of this was not just God moving. Some of this was God saying, “I’m waiting for you to prophesy something so I can come down and make a shift and so My Spirit can begin to move in a new way.”
Go beyond! Mary went beyond her comfort zone. She went beyond her understanding of who Jesus was and activated Him in the earth. Then Father agreed with her, and the manifestation came.
The disciples were there with Jesus, and after they saw the manifestation of His glory, they believed in Him (John 2:1–11). He did it so they would believe. He had to take them beyond where they believed. You can’t get into this next season by merely believing the way you do now!
