Unleashing Healing Power Through Spirit-Born Emotions

by | Dec 7, 2017 | Prophetic Insight

Do you have a theology concerning the role of kingdom emotions to release a miracle? I sure didn’t. I just scorned emotions as being soulish. However, 37 years ago when I began hearing God’s voice through two-way journaling, God reminded me that Jesus, moved by compassion, healed (Matt. 14:14). So I accepted, intellectually, that there was a place for emotions.

I have just spent the last two years of my life meditating on the role of kingdom emotions to release kingdom power. The revelation I have received has caused me to move from disdain (thinking emotions were soulish), to acceptance (Jesus expressed emotions), to honor (faith is energized by love—Gal. 5:6).

Look what emotions accomplish!

Joy strengthens us (Neh. 8:10). Peace rules us (Col. 3:15). Love compels us (2 Cor. 5:14). Compassion moves us (Matt. 9:36). These are true, Spirit-born emotions which we feel (Rom. 14:17; Gal. 5:22). They are not a put-on emotion, or a simple mental thank you at the end of a prayer.

Compassion is the carrier wave of the Spirit’s power (Matt. 14:14). Wow! This is a totally different view of emotion than is normally held. I have changed my mind completely about emotions. Rather than emotions being soulish and unreliable, they are reliable when birthed by the Holy Spirit, and they carry healing power.

What do you think? Could miracles be this easy? 

A miracle is halted if my mind says, “I believe,” and my heart feels, “This is not going to happen.” In this case the emotion of the heart has short-circuited the mind’s belief.

Align the following three and the Spirit’s power is released:

  1. Heart – emotions (Jesus felt compassion)
  2. Head – beliefs (Jesus believed God desired all to be healed)
  3. Body – speech (Jesus spoke, “Be healed”)

In a worst-case scenario I do this all in reverse: my mind believes God is not in control, and my heart feels the emotion of fear, and I speak words of discouragement. Wow! Now I have released the power of the domain of darkness into my life (Col. 1:13). Obviously this is done far too often. My commitment is to never do this again.

To Summarize

The focus of the book Unleashing Healing Power Through Spirit-Born Emotions is that our heart (emotions) must be in alignment with our mind (belief) in order to receive a miracle of divine healing.

John Arnott tells the story of revival dying in a youth group in his church (many years ago), because he told them to cool the emotional manifestations. Now, obviously, in the most recent revival, he is allowing emotional intensity to continue (holy laughter, roaring and more), and the revival continues.

Never again will I say, “Emotions are soulish and need to be overruled.”

Love is God’s on/off switch for unleashing healing power. {eoa}
