The Lord is a master at showing you the end product He desires and then if you are willing to take the time to listen, He will bring you back to the beginning to show you how to get there, step by step.
This morning, I was reading, and receiving Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 1 where it says, “I pray the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so you will know the hope of His calling; the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints; and the surpassing greatness of His power to us who believe.” As I began to receive His power, He began to show me how He wants to do healing in our generation. The Lord said, “You all love the one, but I love the many.” It’s not the individual power God is after, it’s corporate power He desires.
Currently people are looking for an individual with a gift of healing to pray for healing, for power coming out of one person. We have seen this model, we know it well. But the Lord wants corporate power; power coming out of the group. The Lord said, “I pour my spirit out not on one, but on all, so not just one, but all can do it together.” He then brought me to Acts 2. What I saw in the spirit, was the gift of healing coming on a group of people, so we all prayed for the person to be healed, and they were healed, it was corporate not individual.
There is a hinderance to this though. The enemy has put a fear of the “all”; the “corporate” in us. We hear this and think “cult” or we fear not getting to be the “one”, so we shy away from the “all” and then never experience it. The fear of being controlled, not getting to do what I want, keeps us individual. This implanted fear hinders us more than we know in the body of Christ.
Then the Lord revealed to me, the more fearful we are, the more consumed with self we are. Therefore, the solution is perfect love that casts out all fear. When we know we are loved, our focus is not on self, but on others. If we are going to become “all” we must experience perfect love, for that is where fear loses its grip on us and we can let go of self, which will result in “ALL”.
