Powerful Conversation with Art Thomas: Paid in Full Healing Activation Part 4
We join Greg and Art Thomas as they continue their discussion on the book Paid in Full, Healing Ministry Activation Manual which Art Thomas is the author. They continue the conversation talking about how Jesus healed every person he encountered, who needed healing. It seems that the Church doesn’t believe that they are the body of Christ! If we have Jesus in us, then we are the body of Christ. As the body of Christ, we live from a place of humility as we move in the things of God, such as healing. Our job ultimately is to love. 1 Corinthians 13:2 “If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.” If you want to be something you want to be love. 1 John 4:7-8 “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” Maturity starts to take place as we learn to love.
Art explains the difference between faith and belief. Belief is just about information; faith is about trust. Faith is to do my part and only my part and trust Jesus to do the rest. When you lay hands on people praying for their healing, that is your part. The rest of that is Jesus’ part, and with that, we trust that He will meet us in that moment of healing and heal that person. Greg shares a dream that he had, God specifically told him when praying for someone, you don’t tell God about the sickness, you tell the sickness about God. That is powerful knowing that we can move in power as we pray for others!
The difference between the gifts of healing and the healing ministry is the next topic discussed. John 16:13 “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.” When you move in a spiritual gift, you are expressing a piece of Jesus. When you get 100% results on something, like praying for healing for a specific issue that is a gift. You can’t teach a gift, but you can teach ministry principles, so someone can be successful in what God has gifted them to do. At VFNKB we help teach these principles through our VFNtv program and our webinars. You can sign up for our webinars that are coming up at VFNKB. We want to help you to be successful in the giftings God has given you. We also want to hear from you and what you think about these topics today.

Transitioning from Warning to Harvest TIME the Best Days for the Church are Ahead!
We join Greg and John as they discuss some healings that took place at Awakening Healing on the Gulf Coast. Many healings took place as people prayed for each other and many different types of miracles took place from irregular heartbeats to injured knees were healed. It was exciting to see all these healings happen! As a VFNKB partner, you can have access to this full conference. Visit VFNKB to become a partner and gain access to this encouraging conference if you are not already one!
We need to prepare spiritually not only physically for the times that are coming to the Church. Rick Joyner shares that this is harvest time! We need to prepare for salvation and saving souls, and he believes that this is going to be the best of times for the Church. We will begin to see the “tilling” of men’s hearts just like we till the soil to prepare it for a great harvest. Maybe you have been ministering to people for years, and it seems like they aren’t changing. During this harvest time that is coming, you will begin to see those people turn to God. The best days of the Church are coming! We want to hear from you and what your thoughts are on healings and the harvest of souls.

WATCH! Powerful Conversation with Art Thomas: Paid in Full Healing Activation Part 3
We join Greg and Art Thomas as they continue their discussion on the book Paid in Full, Healing Ministry Activation Manual which Art Thomas is the author. They talk about the fact that we need to be the Church and do what Jesus has told us to do. Art answers the question, what are some of the ways that God heals? He starts with, Luke 9:1 “And he called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases.” Power and authority are the two default tools that we have. Luke 6:19 “And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came out from him and healed them all.” In Acts 5, Peter’s shadow healed people. Power seems to happen with close contact and authority can happen from far away. Authority flows from being under authority. We get under the authority of God then we as believers can walk in authority and command satan to leave. A good example of being under authority is the Centurion, Matthew 8:9-10 “For I too am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard this, he marveled and said to those who followed him, “Truly, I tell you, with no one in Israel have I found such faith.” Your authority is based on the fact that the Spirit of God dwells in you and your power is based on the fact that you are clothed with the Holy Spirit and endowed with power from on High. Anytime God tells you to do something specific, and you obey, and healing is the result, that is moving in authority. John 6:44 “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him.”
Just because we are successful doesn’t mean we have it all together. In Luke 9, Jesus sends out His disciples. The disciples did not have it all together; they even had to ask Jesus how to pray after He had sent them out. Jesus is so passionate for the lost that He didn’t care if they had it all together. 1 Samuel 16:7 “For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” Model ourselves after Jesus only. We should keep our focus on our relationship with Jesus, and with that will come the power to move in power and authority in our ministry. Through Emmaus Road discipleship you can be equipped to have a strong relationship with Jesus and help move you into healing activation!
Much of ministry is seed scattering; the seed is the Word of God. We can’t just move in healing without sharing the Word of God. We can tie the message to the healing, saying that the healing is proof that God loves you. Plant seed, not just an experience with whomever you minister. The healing opens the door for someone to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Romans 2:4 “Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?” When we minister to someone, and they are healed or set free, that is God showing His love to that person in hopes that will lead them to repentance!
Our identity should stay rooted in Jesus not in the healings that happen through us. Giftings can take you places your character can’t keep you. If our identity is in Jesus, the times where we see no salvation or healings, we are okay because we know Jesus is good and that it is not about us. Through this, our view of ourselves will be good because we know our identity is in Jesus and that He only says good things about us and He loves us no matter what. We constantly have to realize we can all struggle with pride when we minister this way so we have to always seek the place of humility to continue to be used, James 4:6 “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” We must stay dependent on Jesus knowing that it is Him moving through us when we see healings and salvation. We the Church need to be activated into all that Jesus has called us to do! We want to hear from you and what you think about healings and activation.

Powerful Conversation with Art Thomas: Paid in Full Healing Activation Part 2
We join Greg and Art Thomas as they discuss the book Paid in Full, Healing Ministry Activation Manual which Art Thomas is an author. The book is full of grace and encouragement as it walks you through 40 days of activation into healing. Art gives wisdom on how to process the times that healing doesn’t happen. Sometimes you may pray for someone’s healing, and they aren’t healed. The disciples experienced this in Matthew 17:14-20 when a demon possessed a boy, and he was brought to them to get his healing and deliverance. They were unable to heal him. Jesus found the disciples arguing after this happened. Anytime there is a lack of results; it results in arguments. We try to help ourselves feel better because we feel uncomfortable which in turn can cause the arguments. Jesus healed and delivered the demon-possessed boy, and the disciples ask why they couldn’t heal him. Jesus answers, “Because of the littleness of your faith” Never lift your experience above your faith in God and what God says. Do less and trust more. If you have tried hard and it didn’t work, try less and trust more and see what happens. We need to be walking in relational intimacy with God which is the place where faith is born. Abiding with the Lord is so important to build up your faith so you can do all that Jesus has called you to do! You can do nothing apart from abiding with the Lord and hearing from Him. Romans 10:17 “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”
Much more wisdom is shared which you can hear or watch and be encouraged! Art Thomas produced a movie, Paid in Full, watch the movie and be inspired to step out just as Art has and pray for the healing of others!

Healing! Metal Plates Dissolved in Military Veterans Back! Thank You JESUS!
A powerful healing took place at Bethel Church, a man who couldn’t bend forward because of major injuries to his back that had metal plates, was healed. He had an 800-pound missile land on his back when he was in the military. He shares he couldn’t touch his toes and can now touch his toes! Also, that night as his wife was applying medicine on his back, because of the pain he was usually in, she started screaming and crying. He asked what was wrong and she said she couldn’t feel the plates in his back anymore! God healed him to the point of the metal plates being gone! He shares, God is good, and God is a God Who over does it! Luke 1:37 “For nothing is impossible with God.” Watch or listen to this testimony and be encouraged and uplifted today. We want to hear your thoughts on this healing. Also shared in this segment: War, Healing Rooms, Pain, Spine. Greg shared in this segment.

Powerful Conversation with Art Thomas: Paid in Full Healing Activation Part 1
We join Greg and Art Thomas as they discuss the book Paid in Full, Healing Ministry Activation Manual which Art Thomas is an author. The book is full of grace and encouragement as it walks you through 40 days of activation into healing. Art Thomas, answers the question, is healing for everyone? He shares these scriptures, Mark 16:17-18 “And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.” John 14:12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.” Healing is for everyone that believes in Jesus! Art says he has witnessed around 3000 miracles and most have been through others praying for the healings to take place because they were activated through his teaching. Isaiah 53:5 “But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.” Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, we have our healing!
Art continues by sharing his revelation about how we are to put the Word of God into action. In Luke 6:48, Jesus talks about a man who has built a house on a rock that stood amidst the storm. Often, “The Rock” is perceived as being Jesus or the Word of God. Art shares how this is not true. By looking at what Jesus says in Matthew 7:24-25, “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.” We must put what we’ve learned into action. The rain came upon both. It is only those who respond in obedience that will stand when the rain comes. We must put what we have heard into practice!
When you feel you are under attack by the enemy it may be time for you to jump into action to share your testimony, disciple, and heal the sick! Revelation 12:11 “And they have conquered him(satan) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.” This is exactly what Jesus calls us to do in Matthew 28:19-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” If you haven’t been discipled or need help to disciple someone else in the things of God, visit Emmaus Road, and take the journey of discipleship with us!
