· Wounds healed
· Evil spirits cast out
· Bondages broken
“wholenessthroughchrist.com” is a Canadian, informal, non-denominational, volunteer-based healing organization. It is an association of individuals from many churches that has developed a very simple but Powerful healing model to illustrate the process by which individuals guilty of sin become wounded and subject to spiritual Oppression or even bondages. This model helps us understand the importance of working back from the “fruit” of sin in a persons’ life to deal with the “root of sin” in healing ministry. The model shows the relationship between sin and wounding, spiritual oppression and spiritual bondages. This helps us understand the specific tasks of healing ministry. This Ministry is not for amateurs. It is only for people who are anointed specifically for this Ministry by the Holy Spirit and are:
· Psychologically healthy
· Active in a deep personal prayer life
· Under spiritual supervision and
· Spiritually covered by a praying support group
Clergy are not always called to or gifted in this ministry. This is a potentially dangerous ministry that needs to be done by gifted mature Christians under supervision in a spiritually safe environment and supported by covering prayer.
· Repenting specific sins
· Confessing specific sins
· Specifically asking Jesus for forgiveness.
· Hearing the words of absolution, ideally from a priest
· Stating that they accept Christ’s forgiveness.
This breaks the spiritual power of guilt and frees the person from spiritual oppression. In Anglican liturgies individuals need to be taught and encouraged to prepare in advance with self-examination and then silently include their specific confession as part of the General Confession. Many Anglican churches have trained lay healing teams that offer brief healing prayer to individuals during Communion time in a side chapel. These teams usually include a man and woman to avoid accusations of improper touching. In many jurisdictions trained lay people are licensed by the Bishop to anoint with oil for healing.
