Healing Covenant – Part 7 Lawson and Aaron Perdue

“There came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down, saying unto him, ‘If you will, you can make me clean.’ And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand and touched him and said, ‘I will, be thou clean.’ And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him and he was cleansed. Mark 1:40-45

Healing Covenant

God doesn’t change– He stays the same! All throughout the Bible, we see that it is clearly God’s will to heal. When the Israelites left Egypt, God told them that He is the LORD who heals them. There are so many promises in the Bible for healing. All of these promises still remain true and are part of God’s covenant with believers through the finished work of Jesus. If you are a follower of Jesus- you can see that He is a healer. He was either healing someone, going to heal someone, or coming from healing someone. As you listen to these teachings, we know that faith will be stirred in your heart and that your faith will make you well in Jesus’ name!

Healing Covenant Transcript

  Friends, this week I’m teaching on healing covenant, and we’re doing something different, in that we’re bringing in live teaching from Charis Christian Center. I believe that a lot of people are gonna be blessed and be healed, so stay tuned to the broadcast. Open your heart, receive the Word of God, and remember that God sent His Word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions, in Jesus name. Friends, today I’m gonna be teaching from Mark 1:40-45, and we’re gonna be talking about how you can know the will of God concerning divine healing, and that faith begins where the will of God is known. So open your heart, receive the Word of God, and receive the anointing of the Holy Spirit so you can be healed. We’re gonna begin in Mark 1:40-45, “There came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down, saying unto him, ‘If you will, you can make me clean.’ And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand and touched him and said, ‘I will, be thou clean.’ And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him and he was cleansed. And Jesus straightly charged him and sent him away and said to him, ‘Say nothing to any man, but go your way and show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing those things that Moses commanded for a testimony to them.’ And he went out and began to publish it much and blaze abroad the matter, inasmuch as Jesus could no more openly enter the city, but was without in the desert places, and they came to him from every quarter.” Do you, many people still pray prayers like this. Lord, if it be your will, I know that you can do it. There’s a lot of believers in this same place today. I know that the Lord can, but I don’t know that He will. You can know the will of God from what the Bible says, and faith begins where the will of God is known. The first reason that you can know that it is God’s will to heal you, from the scripture, is because healing is the nature of God. In Exodus, turn with me to Exodus 15, the children of Israel had been in Egypt, and had just, three days earlier, left Egypt, come across the Red Sea. It says in verse 22, “When Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea, they went into the wilderness of Shur, and went three days in the wilderness and found no water.” Verse 23, “And when they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah for they were bitter. Therefore, the name of it was Marah, or bitter. And the people murmured against Moses saying, ‘What shall we drink?’ And Moses cried to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree, which when he cast into the waters.” Now this tree is a type of the cross. The waters are a type of the gentile nations of the world. “And the waters were made sweet, and there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them and said,” in verse 26, “If you will diligently harken to the voice of the Lord your God, and will do that which is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all of His statutes.” Now, the first thing you need to know is no one has ever done that except for Jesus. But Jesus is the condition of the covenant, and you don’t receive the promises of the covenant because you keep every condition, right, and you obey God every time, and you obey every commandment. Nobody’s ever done that except for Jesus. You get the promises of the covenant because of who Jesus is. Jesus is the condition of this covenant. But he went on after that and said, “If you’ll do this, I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians, for I am the Lord who heals you. I am Jehovah Rapha. I am the Lord who heals you. That is my name. That is my nature. That is my character.” Now, if you study the Old Testament, the Old Testament is a progressive revelation of who God is. And there are seven redemptive names of God in the Old Testament, of which this is the second one. The first one is, I am the Lord your provider, Genesis 22. The second one, found here, is I am the Lord your healer, Exodus 15. The third one is I am the Lord your banner, your deliverer, your protector, Jehovah Nissi, Exodus 17. The fourth one is, I am the Lord who sanctifies you, Leviticus 20:8. The fifth one is found in Judges 6, I am the Lord your peace and your provision, Jehovah Shalom. The sixth one is, I am Jehovah Tsidkenu, I am the Lord your righteousness, Jeremiah 23:6 and Jeremiah 33:16. And the last one is, I am the Lord who is there, Ezekiel 48, I believe it’s verse 35, the very last verse of Ezekiel, I’ll never leave you nor forsake you. So God reveals us to Himself in His name. Then He says in Malachi 3:6, the very last book of the Old Testament, “I am the Lord and I change not.” In other words, if God was the Lord who heals us, then He is the Lord who heals us. If He is the Lord who heals us, then He will always be the Lord, our healer. So He never changes from who He says that He is. In fact, Damon Peterson told me between services, there’s a leading Jewish teacher that teaches the third commandment is this, you shall not take the name of the Lord in vain. When the Hebrews understood the commandment, you will not take the Lord, the name of the Lord in vain, they had a completely different understanding about that commandment than you and I do. Number one, it means this. Don’t take the name of the Lord lightly. There is weightiness there. There is substance in God’s name. But Damon was sharing this with me in between services that there is a leading Hebrew teacher that says, “If you account evil to God, if you account sickness to God, if you account poverty to God, if you account sin to God, you are taking the name of the Lord in vain.” I would say that is accurate with my understanding of the scripture. So He says, “I am the Lord who heals you.” That means, if He was the Lord who heals us, He is the Lord who heals us, He’s always gonna be the Lord who heals us. And then He says, “I’m the Lord and I don’t change.” So we don’t have a God that we serve, we have the, you know, an unchangeable God. In fact, we go to the New Testament, and if you go to James 1, in James 1, James is a book all about faith. And in James 1, it’s really talking about the wisdom of faith. But James begins here in James 1:13 saying, “Let no man say when he’s tempted, ‘I am tempted of God,’ for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts He any man. But every man is tempted when he’s drawn away of his own lust and enticed. Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin, and when it is finished, it brings forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren. Don’t change from this. Don’t move away from this.” Then he says in verse 17, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” In other words, if it’s not good, and it’s not perfect, it could not be from God because everything that God does is only good and only perfect. Jesus said it this way in John 10:10, he said, “It is the thief that comes to steal, to kill, and destroy, but I have come that you might have life, and that you might have it more abundantly.” Praise God. So God is always good and God always does good, and in fact, if something is not good, it could not come from God because that’s all God has to give. Friends, it’s great to have you with us today, receiving the Word of God, but we have so much more to share.

  On March 2nd this year, I was diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer. They wanted me to go through chemo and everything and I said, “No.”


  And you had cancer clear throughout your insides.




  And they said, they said they could operate and they could do all that.


  They gave me three weeks.


  Three weeks to live.


  I am healed. I have never had any pain. Seven or eight months, right now.


  He’s not the author of death. He’s not the author of disease. His nature, He says, “I am the Lord who heals you. That is my very name.” The second thing is we can know that healing is the will of God because of the promises of God. You see, the promise of God comes from the nature of God, and God’s promise, promises, all of God’s promises, are consistent with who He said that He is. In Exodus 23:25, the Lord says, “I will bless your bread and bless your water, and take sickness from the midst of you.” He goes on in verse 26 and says, “There will be none barren among you, neither shall any of you cast your.” Amen, however it says it. In other words, God said, “I’m your healer,” right, “and I’m the one who sustains the fruit of your womb.” Hallelujah. I’m gonna bless your bread and bless your water. Take sickness from the midst of you. We go into Psalm 91, Psalm 91:10 says, “No evil shall befall you, neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.” When the whole COVID thing came up, Barbara said, from day one, with her mouth, “My body has every antibody that it needs and I will not have COVID.” Hallelujah. We went all through COVID. She never had a sign, she never had a symptom, she never had a problem. Barbara’s dad, who was 86 at the time, was working in Denver, this is about two rounds through, never missed a day of work in his life for being sick. He continued to work when a lot of the young people wouldn’t work because of fear, so on and so forth. However, he contracted COVID, and rather than stop working, he was working at Walmart, he continued to work every day, and he became very sick. He should have taken some time off and rested, he probably would’ve healed up. But he didn’t take any time off, kept working, so he got very sick. And they came and took him from his house in an ambulance, put him in the hospital in Denver. He was there for a period of time, and when he got out, he needed a place to get healed up more before he could go back to his home. His home was on the third level of a building in Denver with no elevator, so on and so forth. And so we were bringing him to our house when he was to get outta the hospital, but the doctors wanted to make sure that Barbara, you know, had, since she had never had any symptoms, never had any sign, never been tested in any way, that she had antibodies. So she went and got her blood checked and they said, “Sure enough, you have all the antibodies against COVID in your blood.” Now, she never had one symptom. She never had a runny nose, she never had a cough, she never had a fever. She never had one sign of COVID, and yet she had the antibodies in her blood, in her body, because she said with her mouth, “I will not have COVID, and my body has every antibody that it needs.” You have to realize there’s power and there’s life in your words. But we have promises from God, and the promises of God are consistent with God’s nature, with who God said that He is. You go a little bit farther, in Psalm 91:16, the scripture says, “With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.” The word for salvation there in Psalm 91:16 is the Hebrew word Yeshua. It is consistent with the Greek word for save, sozo, and salvation, soteria. And when you study those words out, both in the Hebrew, Yeshua, and in the Greek, sozo and soteria, those words have the connotation of forgiveness, healing, freedom, peace, and provision, wholeness, completeness, wellbeing, spirit, soul, and body. So when we’re talking about salvation, we’re talking about wholeness, we’re talking about healing, we’re talking about wellbeing, we’re talking about completeness, we’re talking about being forgiven, and healed, and at peace, and free, and prospering in every area of our life, spiritually, physically, emotionally, and financially.




  That’s what salvation is talking about. That’s what the Bible says. We go a little bit farther, in Psalm 103, the psalmist David says, “Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name, and forget not all of His benefits.” In verse three, he says, “Who forgiveth all of your iniquities, who healeth all of your diseases.” How many of your sins does He forgive?




  How many of your diseases does He heal?




  Who forgives all of your iniquities? Who healeth, Rapha. Who healeth, I am Jehovah Rapha, and I Rapha, I heal all your disease. Verse four, he goes on, “Who redeems your life from destruction? Who satisfies your mouth with good things?” I missed one in there. Hallelujah. “So that your youth is renewed like the eagles, who crowned you with loving kindness and tender mercies.” Recently, Aaron had a word and he said, “We’re gonna have many people in this church, if Jesus tarries, that are gonna be centenarians, they’re gonna live over 100 years, and they’re gonna be healthy and be strong. And if you’ll believe it, you can receive it. I submit to you that we receive far too little because we believe for far too little. But praise God for His promises, and His promises are consistent with His nature. You move a little bit farther, into Psalm 107:20, he says, “He sent His Word and healed them and delivered them from their destruction.” Proverbs 4:20-22, “My son, attend to my words, give ear to my sayings. Keep them before the midst of your eyes. Let them not depart from your heart. Keep them in the midst of your heart.” He says in verse 22, “For they are life unto all those who find them, and they are health, they are medicine.” The Word of God is medicine for your flesh. Hallelujah. We move on into the prophet Jeremiah. He says in Jeremiah 30:17, “I will restore health to you and heal you of all of your wounds.” Praise God. I’m gonna restore health to you. I’m gonna heal you of all of your wounds. And since we’re here, verse 18, we’ll just tuck this one in there. In the Modern English Version, it says this, “And I will restore the fortunes of Jacob’s tent.” Now, if you wanna get criticized preaching in the United States of America today, two things will draw criticism more than anything. Preach on divine healing and preach on prosperity. And I’m telling you, religion doesn’t like it, and the devil doesn’t like it. You’ll make somebody mad. But Jesus, when he opened his earthly ministry, made some people mad on the very first day. And if you’re worried about making people mad, and just wanna make everybody happy, too much of what people preaching is just a feel good gospel instead of preaching to you the Holy Bible and what the Word of God said. And it’s time that we get back to preaching the whole Word of God, the Holy Bible that we preach, who God said that He is, and what God said that He would do. You see, we have the unchangeable word of an unchangeable God. You go just a little bit farther, in Malachi 4:2, he says, “Unto you who fear my name shall the Son of Righteousness arise, with healing in his wing.” You know, back in the 1950s, there was a woman by the name of Evelyn Wyatt who had a ministry called Wings of Healing Ministry. My granddad was a good Baptist man. His favorite scripture was Ephesians 2:8, “For by grace are you saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves, it’s a gift of God.” But my granddad had bursitis in his left shoulder, and my granddad, in his 50s, went to a Evelyn Wyatt meeting, and Evelyn Wyatt laid hands on his shoulder. And he said, “When she laid hands on me, heat went into my shoulder, and I could feel the power of God.” And my granddad lived up into his 80s, and never had bursitis in his shoulder again because he was healed by the power of God. I want you to know that Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever. And the same Jesus that walked the shores of Galilee, that healed the sick, that cleansed the leper, that raised the dead, that cast out devils, is alive and well to do today. And he’s still doing the same things today that he did when he walked on the shores of Galilee. We can know, number one, that healing is the will of God because it is God’s nature. He said, “I am the Lord who heals you.” We can know, number two, that healing is the will of God because it is the promise of God, and the promises of God are consistent with the nature of God. Friends, I wanna thank you so much for staying tuned today, for receiving the Word of God. And if you need prayer, I want to encourage you to call our prayer ministers. We have many people that are receiving healing, that are receiving Jesus as their Savior, that are receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit when they pray, and we’ve got trained prayer ministers that are ready to receive your calls. So give us a call today. We’re here, we’re waiting to receive your calls to minister the grace of Jesus Christ to you so that you can receive God’s promise in your life today. Thanks so much and God bless you.
