“James 5:16”

- Pastor Rusty - Dec. 21, 2023

“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16

James 5:16 comes across as one of the most simplistic pragmatic passages of scripture that deals with healing and deliverance in the Bible. For those who actually seek to participate in the ministry of Jesus that includes the mandate, “As you go, preach this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven is near!’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.” Matt. 10:7-8. James 5:16 is at the core of all SOZO ministry. It the simplistic two step program that allows you to walk people out of addictions and demonic bondages. It is not a twelve-step program or a ten-step program. It is a two-step program that allows you to address “CORE ISSUES” and get the root of a problem. It has basically two components. Confess Your Faults! This is key to breaking league with darkness, whether they be sin issues or demonic infestation. Either way confession becomes key. Two, and this is big but simple, The Prayer of Faith. If you feel you are week in this area, this is correctable. Become stronger in your prayer life by delegating more time simply approaching the Father (through Jesus' name). Rise up early and seek Him. Stop multitasking during your so-called prayer time. As the church at large grows stronger in this, maybe the church will stop outsourcing our job to AA or Betty Ford clinic or depression counseling. And maybe the church will cease being do nothing theologians and become “doers of the word.” Just sayin’🧐 Let us pray. “Holy Father, cause a “returning” to the heart of the matter. Stop a cycle of depressed individuals from counseling depressed individuals. Let the husbandmen be first partakers of the fruits. End this cycle of walking wounded carrying walking wounded. HEAL YOUR BRIDE! En el nombre de JESUS! Amen!” Pastor Rusty
