‘Healing Is For You!’ Now Available in Paperback on Amazon

HEALING AMAZON BOOK COVER - FRONT ONLY w. shadowWe just want to let all of our visitors know that Sandra Conner’s book Healing Is For You! is now available in paperback from Amazon. It’s been on the market in paperback for years, selling in independent bookstores, at seminars, Bible schools, and through churches. And it went onto Amazon in digital format last year. But the only online retailer for the paperback was the publisher’s website, St. Ellen Press.

However, this week the book has come out in its fourth paperback edition, with a new look, new format, and lower price ($6.99) — and now it’s easy to order from Amazon.

It still offers a thorough study from God’s Word about healing for body and mind, and it still answers scores of the most troubling questions on the subject. Such as —-

Is it always God’s will to heal?

If it is God’s will to heal everyone, then why doesn’t everyone receive healing?

What part does medical science play in God’s healing plan?

Is it God who decides when each person dies?

How can I ever die if I keep getting healed?

If I don’t have faith for healing, can I get it somehow?

The book doesn’t promote any church doctrine. Rather it looks closely and carefully at God’s Word — especially the life and ministry of Jesus — who, according to the Word, is the only exact, perfect representation of God. It looks at God’s personal and perfectly-executed plan to get His people well and keep them well. It covers 9 separate means that God Himself has provided to get His healing power into us, and it looks carefully at 7 of the most common hindrances to our receiving that healing fully. It also offers a final chapter with more than 100 healing scriptures to use as medicine, just the way the Lord instructs us to do.

The Lord has graciously anointed and blessed Healing Is For You! to strengthen and encourage faith and help people receive healing from Jesus Christ. If you need healing, or you would like to better understand God’s healing plan so that you can help others get well, it will be a wonderful tool to help you move more fully into God’s loving, merciful plan to bless His people.

Building Up Our Resistance

RED OCTAGON - STOP“Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”  (James 4:7).

These instructions are strikingly clear and to the point. They confirm another set of instructions set forth in 1 Peter 5: 6-10: “Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober; be vigilant, because your adversary, the devil walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith.” The Amplified Bible translates verse 7 as follows: ” … casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.”

God wants us to be humble enough to admit that we can’t fight our own battles and win our own victories in ourselves. He wants us to come to Him for the help we need. We cast the problems onto Him, and He fills us with His anointing and power to win. Not only that: He also goes to work on the situations with all the forces of Heaven working and fighting on our behalf.

The main key is for us to MAKE THE DECISION  to side with God and His Word rather than with the devil and his lies. Whether those lies come to us in the form of temptation to sin, relatives who are caught up in addition or demonic activity, a doctor’s report that says we can’t get well, the loss of a job, or any other attack on our lives, our response needs to be the same. We need to run to God’s Word and find out what He says about the situation.

When we do that, we will find — every single time — that our God has a solution. Once we see that solution presented in the Word, our next move should be to turn on the devil and refuse to accept what he has done or what he says about our chances of victory over it. And we have to be very careful; most Christians fail at this point because the lies about their situations are coming at them in the form of “worldly wisdom.”

They hear the reports in the terms of the doctors, lawyers, politicians, and specialists of the world who say what the world has taught them. But God tells us in James 3:15 that the wisdom of this world is demonic. So we have to recognize that although the reports and the prognosis for failure come to us in terms that may sound “reasonable” to the world, if they do not agree with God’s Word, they are wrong.

We must make a decision to believe God INSTEAD OF the natural situations and reports. God tells us clearly that everything natural will pass away, but His Word will abide forever. It is His Word, after all, that created everything natural. (Genesis 1, John 1). And His Word has the power to change those natural things. That’s why speaking God’s Word to a mountain will force it to move. The physical mountain cannot refuse to obey the Word that created it in the first place.

We must refuse what is contrary to the Word. Actively resist it. Command it to be gone from us and from our lives. Then we speak God’s Word over the situation in faith and command it to change and line up with that Word.

But remember: resisting the enemy works ONLY when we are submitting to God first.

Healing Holiday

fall-wreath-neh-text

Thanksgiving Day is just around the corner,
And I am set to have a lovely time.
First I’ll make a jaunt to church and, kneeling down,
I’ll thank the Lord for all His blessings kind.

And then I’ll journey farther to meet kith and kin.
We’ll hug and laugh and tell each other news.
Then next I’ll help dish up the yummy treats in store;
So many dishes, all from which to choose.

Then after eating more than I could ever need,
And going back again for one more pinch,
I’ll sit by fireplace warm and cuddle little ones,
And soon we’ll be asleep; it is a cinch.

Oh, my, how dear Thanksgiving is to all of us.
It gives us one whole day when we can part
From all that pulls and presses us and wounds us sore,
And give ourselves to healing, loving hearts.

Daily Confessions from God’s Word

WHITE BIBLE - KNOW WORD LOGOBelow are several confessions from God’s Word concerning us and the truth about who and what we are now that Jesus has finished His work on our behalf. I’ve included the scripture references so that we can go back to the original text and verify all of these truths.  

And although all of these words are true concerning us, the Lord has made it clear that we must agree with them and speak them out of our own mouths if we would see them manifested. He tells us in Romans 10:10 that we believe in our hearts, but we need to speak with our mouths in order to get the job completed, and He tells us in Proverbs 18:21 that death and life are in the power of our own tongues.

As we make these confessions from God’s Word daily, He works to bring these Words into manifestation in us and in our lives. He is faithful, and He will do it.


I am in Jesus Christ; therefore, I am a brand new species: a God-man, conceived and born out of the incorruptible seed of God Himself. I am supernatural, and through Jesus, I bring the supernatural into my natural world every day.

(1 Corinthians 5:17, 1 John 3:9, 1 Peter 1:23)

I am the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ. My Father God loves me exactly the way He loves Jesus, and He is rejoicing over me with singing.

(2 Corinthians 5:21, John 1:23, Zephaniah 3:17)

Because I am in Jesus Christ, there is no condemnation imputed to me. If I do sin, I run to my Father in repentance, and He is faithful to forgive my sin and cleanse me of all unrighteousness.

However, because God makes a way out of every temptation that comes to me, I choose not to sin.

(Romans 8:1, 1 John 1:9, 1 Corinthians 10:13)

I am a righteous man in Jesus Christ, and my earnest prayers are effective, making tremendous power available, dynamic in its working, bringing God’s Kingdom into manifestation on this earth.

(James 5:16-17)

God is for me; therefore, no one can be against me successfully. I overcome every enemy by speaking God’s Word out of my mouth and by applying the blood of Jesus Christ.

(Romans 8:21, Revelation 12:11)

I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. As I wait upon Him, He gives me more and more of His own strength. So by Him I can run through a troop, leap over a wall, and skip about like a calf from the stall. In Him I live and move and have my being.

(Ephesians 6:10, Isaiah 40:31, Psalm 18:29, Malachi 4:2, Acts 17:28)

I dwell in the secret place of the Most High; therefore, no evil can befall me; neither shall any plague or calamity come near me or my dwelling.

(Psalm91: 1, 10)

In Jesus, I have power to tread on all demonic spirits, and no weapon formed against me can prosper. Neither shall anything harm me.

(Luke 10:19, Isaiah 54:17)

I bless the Lord every day, with everything in me, because He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He also renews my youth like the eagle. I will still yield fruit in old age.

(Psalm 103:1, 3, 5; Psalm 92:14)

Jesus has born all my griefs, sickness, weakness, distress, mutilation, and disfigurement. He has carried away my sorrows and pains. He was wounded for my sins and beaten to pay for my peace and well-being. And by the stripes that wounded Him, I am healed and made whole.

(Isaiah 53:4-5, Amp)

My God gives me power to make wealth. When I give, He causes my gifts to come back to me, good measure and running over. When I give liberally, He causes me to be enriched in all things, and I will not be in want of any good thing.

(Deuteronomy 8:18, Luke 6:38, 2 Corinthians 9:8-11)

God fights for my children and delivers them from the hand of the enemy and from all demonic bondage.

(Isaiah 49:25)

I have received God’s Word and His Holy Spirit, and I have His promise that His Word and His Spirit shall never depart from me or from my children or my grandchildren. His Word and His Spirit are working in my children and grandchildren every day.

(Isaiah 59:21)

Jesus has given me His own peace, wholeness, and completeness. I live and walk in His peace every day, and I am not afraid of anything. I live in untroubled, undisturbed well-being.

(John 14:27 – definition of ‘peace’ from original Hebrew)

Because I am in Jesus Christ, the Spirit of the Lord is upon me, and He has anointed me to preach the Gospel, and to bring release to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, and deliverance to the brokenhearted. He has sent me to proclaim the year of God’s salvation and free favors to everyone in the world.

(Luke 4:18-19, John 14:12, 2 Corinthians 5:18-19)

Crossing the Line

(Sandra Conner)

do-not-cross-line

Did you ever face a situation as a kid where one of your antagonists drew a line in the sand and said that line represented a boundary you were not to cross? You were required to stay on your own side of the line, and if you didn’t, there would be serious negative repercussions? “Don’t cross that line, or I’ll beat you up.”

Well, you know what? That’s still happening to the Body of Christ in this world. The devil has drawn a line in the sand, and we’re afraid to cross over it.

During the time of Jesus’ ministry, the gates of a city represented, not only the places of entrance and exit, but also the place of legal authority. Major decisions and legal transactions were commonly made at the “gates of the city.” And certainly the gates, being part of a protective wall, were the main elements in the security of the city.

When the devil sets up his “gates” – his places of entrance into our lives — he does so in order to set up his own “seat of authority” and to try to be in control of those areas. The gates may be in the form of disease in our bodies, drug addiction in our children, pornography in a spouse, loss of a job or source of income, unsaved loved ones. Those gates may be political or legal actions that change the tenets of our cities or nations. They may be roots of strife and jealously that spring up in the midst of a congregation of believers.

But whatever form those “gates” take, the Lord has instructed us that we are to overrun those gates and demolish them in His name. His intention is very clear when He speaks in Matthew 16:18 : “Upon this rock, I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” That promise actually goes all the way back to Abraham. And just as Jesus came to fulfill all the rest of the Old Covenant – ushering in the New – so He fulfilled that part of the covenant promise as well. God told Abraham that he would “possess the gates of his enemies.” (Genesis 22:17 ). He repeated that promise to Isaac as well, because the promise is part and parcel of the Covenant as a whole.

Jesus came to provide the avenue through which all those promises would be passed down to everyone who would follow Him. And under this new Covenant, now that we have been born again into a new species and are actively members of the Kingdom of God, the power to execute those promises is far superior to what Abraham had. He was constrained to the natural world, with intermittent help from the spirit realm. We, on the other hand, have our life in the spirit Kingdom of God on a constant basis and can make use of the powers from that realm at will.

So how do we find ourselves so often in the position of standing there looking at a line drawn in the sand (disease, addiction, poverty, etc), feeling that we are imprisoned by that line and required to suffer behind it – not being able to cross over it into victory? The answer to that question is quite simple actually. The Word of God tells us clearly that we can submit to God and resist the devil, and he will most assuredly flee from us. The Word also tells us that “greater is He that is in us than he that is in the word. It further guarantees that faith overcomes the world (and all the world throws at us.) The word “salvation” alone covers every possible need we could have, and Jesus has already done all the work of providing that complete salvation for every man, woman, and child on the earth who will believe.

And there’s the problem, beloved: it’s with that word “believe.” The simple truth is that we – the Church – do not truly believe God’s Word. And one of the main reasons we don’t believe it is that we don’t know what it says – because we don’t read and study it for ourselves. We don’t spend hours reading, meditation, and praying over the Word to receive revelation. If we did, and we truly believed what it says, we would speak and act accordingly. And our first action would be to step across that line the devil has drawn at our feet.

Are you tired of living in the prison behind that line? Most of us are facing a number of those lines in our lives. It’s past time we got fed up with being in prison and, instead, got “fed-up” (filled) with God’s Word. Once we get enough Word activated in us that we are willing to pick up our feet and march over those lines, we will live our lives in victory on every level. Because after crossing one of the devil’s lines and realizing that we really are free, and he is truly is defeated, we will find that crossing over the rest of those lines is much easier.

Are you ready?

Fill up on God’s Word. Toss out everything that contradicts it.

Concentrate on that Word until it is the most real thing in your life.

Then Step Over the Line into your victory through the name of Jesus Christ.

Acting On God’s Word

(This article is a re-post of a lesson originally published on this site three years ago. But many of our visitors do not go back through our archives to any extent, and since this message is so important,  we felt it was a good idea to offer it anew this year as well.)

by Sandra Conner (Radical About Jesus Ministries)

LITTLE FAITH, MIGHTY MOUNTAIN - BROWN

James 2:17 says, “Even so, faith, if it has no works, is dead ….” Many people misunderstand this verse because they take it completely out of context. They try to interpret it to mean that man must “work” to earn his own salvation. But the context of chapter 2 of James is not about earning salvation. It is about showing forth that salvation through the natural results that come from believing. What are those natural results? Actions. The word “works” used in this passage, in its original language, literally means “corresponding actions.” So what the Word is saying is that if we have real faith, we will have actions that correspond with – result from – bear the fruit of – that faith. If we really do believe what God’s Word says, we will act like it.

Many have been the times that I was believing the Lord for healing in my body, and applying His Word as medicine, but had to stand my ground for a period of time before I saw the manifestation. We don’t always know why the manifestation takes a while to show up, when at other times, it shows up immediately. There are any number of things that could be hindrances, and as we stay in prayer, we can be assured that God will show us anything that we need to know in order to speed things up.

But regardless of the reason, the one thing we do know for sure is that God’s Word and His promise will not fail. So we keep standing – and acting like we believe. Now we do not mean that we are “putting on an act.” We mean that we speak and move and carry on our lives to the best of our ability as though the manifestation were already evident. I can remember more than once when I was scheduled to teach God’s Word at a meeting, and found myself in pain as the result of a physical attack. The enemy was shouting in my ear that I would have to cancel the meeting. And when I refused to cancel, he shouted that I would make a fool of myself to go and speak about God’s healing and then have to be rushed to the hospital because I would be too sick to continue the meeting. He has some of the most colorful scenarios, but what we must remember, beloved, is that all of them are lies.

Often I would simply have to grit my teeth and act on the Word from Isaiah 53:4-5 and Matthew 8:16-17, which tell us that we are already healed by the stripes that Jesus bore in His own body at the time of His crucifixion. I had to get up, take a shower, and put on my make up. (And sometimes I would deliberately apply it even more dexterously than usual, so that I did not give the enemy an inch to work with in making me look sick.) I would drive myself to the meeting shouting the praises of God at the top of my voice, and I would stand up in front of the congregation and teach the truth that God wills to heal all of His people all of the time, and that the healing has already been provided by Jesus’ finished work.

Sometimes, we just have to act, beloved, because we believe even though we have not yet seen. And whether that period of time between praying and seeing the manifestation lasts several hours, several weeks, or several months or years, we must not move from our stand on God’s truth. To move from that Word can mean the whole difference between life and death.

Evangelist and Bible teacher Gordon Lindsay, founder of Christ for the Nations ministries, shared with his listeners, over the years, a number of testimonies of when he found himself in similar situations and always found God faithful. Brother Lindsay, who has been with the Lord now for many years, shared one particular testimony that always encouraged my faith personally.

He told of a time when he had just begun his evangelistic work and came down with a case of ptomaine poisoning. The first point he made when he shared this particular testimony was that when he experienced the first attack of cramps, he should have taken his authority over the situation in the name of Jesus and rebuked the illness, driving it from his body. Instead, he let it go, thinking in his natural mind that it would eventually subside on its own.

However, it did not. In fact, as is the way with serious food poisoning, it grew worse and worse until he was wracked with horrible bouts of cramping for two weeks. During this time, of course, he did pray for relief, and several friends prayed as well. He did not see any relief at the time, but seemed to continue to grow worse. He had been invited to stay in the home of some friends, since he was in the midst of holding a series of meetings, but the friends grew frightened when he seemed to continue in such a serious condition and insisted he call a medical doctor.

Brother Lindsay, who firmly believed the Word of God concerning healing, had, years before, studied the scripture in which the Lord declares that He will be the physician for His people (Exodus 15:26.) He believed that scripture, and had committed his body to God alone for its health and welfare. Since he did not want to call a human physician, his friends felt he needed to be moved from their home, and another evangelist, John G. Lake, took him into his own home. John G. Lake was also a great believer in healing, and throughout his own ministry saw multitudes of people healed in answer to prayer alone.

While at Reverend Lake’s home, Brother Lindsay lay in bed and read Brother Lake’s printed sermons on healing. Those sermons, which were full of God’s Word, created more faith in Brother Lindsay and stirred him to take hold of that Word in a new way. He related a portion of this testimony in one of his own teaching books, Christ, the Great Physician:

“The affliction … now had reduced me to a condition of extreme helplessness. Gradually weakening in body and wracked with constant pain, I resigned myself to death. … I had wanted to preach the Gospel of Good Tidings more than anything else in the world. Now it appeared that my ministry would end with abruptness. Was this the Will of God? …

“But God was to show Himself. First, through His Word. … As I read those messages, my attention was taken from my suffering to the power of the Risen Christ. Certain scriptures came to me with force and vividness. … Acts 10:38, concerning Jesus, ‘who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil,’ left a deep impression upon me. Again, in Luke 3, Jesus, in healing the woman bowed over, showed that the infirmity was caused directly by the binding power of Satan. … It was not the will of God that I should die, but rather the will of the devil.

“Another scripture came especially to my attention. It was Mark 11:22-24, and is yet today my favorite passage. ‘What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.’ A light was dawning, and I began to understand the difference between passive and active faith. Here was a direct warrant for my immediate healing if I would dare to accept it. I could wait no longer.”

He went on to explain that he called for his clothes to be brought to him, and even though still horribly weak and still in pain, he managed to put them on, focusing his thoughts, not on his pain, but on the promise of God. He had lost 25 pounds during the illness, and his clothes hung on him, but he ignored that fact as well. “As my feet touched the floor, I began to praise the Lord for healing,” he said. “At that instant my cramps vanished. And for the first time in many days I felt the sensation of hunger. I sat down to a hearty meal.

“I was healed indeed!”

He closed his testimony by adding, “Faith is an act. After prayer is made for healing, there is a time to act upon the Word of God. Deliverance came to me at the moment that I acted upon the Word of God.”
