Doing the Works of Jesus on Spring Break

 // Rhema Missions

INSTEAD OF lounging on the beach during spring break, some Rhema Bible Training College students head to the mission field. Their goals: share Christ, get people saved, lay hands on the sick, and see God's miraculous power at work.

In March three student/alumni teams fanned out to Trujillo, Peru; Bangkok, Thailand; and a Navajo reservation in Shiprock, New Mexico.

Craig W. Hagin led the trip to Thailand, where fewer than one percent of the people are Christians. The team ministered to pastors and many refugees, among others. At a boys detention center, team members led about 180 young men to Jesus. And during a three-night crusade in a church, the owner of a nearby factory paid his workers to come for two nights.

Tad Gregurich, Dean of Rhema USA, led the Peru trip. The team ministered on the street and in churches and marketplaces. Healing miracles were the norm. After team members prayed for one young man with a tumor on his leg, the growth disappeared. Others prayed for a woman who couldn't hear out of her left ear, and the Lord restored her hearing.

Carl and Susan Hibma, employees of Kenneth Hagin Ministries, led the Navajo trip. The team of students, alumni, and Rhema Bible Church members ministered nightly at a church. Eleven adults and 10 children accepted Jesus as their Savior. Thirty-seven people reported being healed, including the bass player in the worship band and several at the hotel where the Rhema group was staying.

Each trip let team members put into practice what they'd learned in the classroom. And they could see that the Holy Spirit will work through all who make themselves available to Him.

 

Romans 4:20 (NIV) says that Abraham “did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God.” Many years ago my father, Kenneth E. Hagin, wrote in the flyleaf of his Bible, “God said it; I believe it; and that settles it.” Abraham had this same attitude, and we need to grab hold of it too. No matter how bad our situation looks, our victory is found in God’s promises and in never letting go of what our Heavenly Father has said.
Don’t Be Double-Minded
Often today believers affirm their faith publicly, but when they are by themselves, they begin to question God. They wonder if He can really help them. The moment they start doubting, they begin wavering in their faith.
The Bible is very clear about the danger of wavering.
James 1:6–7 (NIV)
6 When you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
Faith does not look at circumstances, and it doesn’t regard feelings. It stays completely focused on God’s Word. Unfortunately, some people allow their situations and feelings to “speak” louder than Scripture.
Some people lose their healing because they stop looking at the Word and focus on what’s going on in their body. It’s dangerous to do this, because before long they will start talking wrong. They’ll begin to say things like, “I thought I was healed. I guess I lost my healing.”
When we start talking like that, we throw out our healing and open the door for the devil and all of his junk to come back in. If we would just stand strong on the Word, every symptom would leave.
Look to the Word
Anytime the enemy bombards your mind with his lies, you must counter those lies with the Word of God. When lack rears its ugly head, read what God said about prosperity. When sickness impacts your body, meditate on healing scriptures. When fear invades your life, find peace scriptures to read. When impossibilities stare you in the face, the Word holds your answer.
Reading God’s promises keeps us focused on them instead of on the distractions that are sent to prevent us from receiving what God has for us. When facing the impossible, we can’t afford to look at whatever is coming against us.
Start Talking
