'"I brought my son to Your disciples, but they could not cure him." Then Jesus rebuked the sickness, and the boy was healed at that very moment. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not cast it out?" So, Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; nothing will be impossible for you."' (Matthew 17)

The believer who has not yet moved a 'mountain', has not yet begun the real task of the ministry; Jesus rebuked the disciples for their unbelief in Matthew 17 and said, 'If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.' I challenge you to begin to act in the power and authority of your faith. So many times I have had to face the impossible and seen God move in power, and I challenge you to begin to do it yourself!

In Matthew 17, when Jesus - with Peter, James and John - came down from the Transfiguration, He found the other disciples at the bottom, unable to heal the boy possessed by an evil spirit. Jesus said two things: firstly, that this kind only comes out by prayer and fasting; then secondly, He rebuled His disciples' lack of faith, saying that if they had faith as small as a grain of mustard seed they could command this mountain to move. I challenge you to begin to act in the power and authority of your faith.

God the Father, put in the Name of Jesus, all power, all authority. There is only one name under heaven by which men can be saved, healed and delivered, the Name of Jesus! I've not had an easy life: in 1964 I had throat cancer, and in 2003, lung cancer; who did I call on to deliver me: no, I didn't call a healing evangelist or a pastor, I called on the Name of Jesus, and He healed me. Our deliverance is in the Name of Jesus; it isn't the sound of the Name, but it is the authority which is in His Name that saves and heals.

Physical healing is an integral part of the atonement. It has been bought for us, together with our salvation, through Christ's suffering and death. Isaiah 53 states clearly that 'He was wounded for our transgressions... and with His stripes we are healed.' As Christians, we believe that our sin was taken away and the penalty was paid by Christ's suffering and death. We need to apply the same level of faith to our deliverance from sickness as we do to our deliverance from sin.

In 1994 as I ministered for three months in Siberia, a lady pleaded with me to pray with a sick relative in the hospital. There was one man who told me that his back was broken, so I laid my hands on him, immediately all the pain left, he straightened himself and got up and ran off to make a cup of tea for me. By now the news of what God was doing was spreading, and another man who was almost blind came from a different room. As I laid my hands on his eyes, they opened and he could see. Someone brought a Bible which was by the side of one of the beds and he read it excitedly, shouting in his enthusiasm for all to hear, "I can see, look I can read!"

God will use those troubles, those tribulations, those difficulties, those everyday problems that you have in your life to speak to you. When I think of the number of troubles I have had - being in a communist prison for a year, having cancer twice - God uses every circumstance to bring glory to His Name; He uses the problems and the difficulties in our lives to show us that He works miracles today!

There is only one solid rock and His Name is Jesus! It is so important at the beginning of this year to resolve that you are going to trust God no matter what may come. None of us know what will happen in 2017, but we can decide ahead of time that our hope is built upon Jesus; He is our answer to every problem; He is our hope and deliverer; Christ is everything. 'On Christ the Solid Rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand.'

John the Baptist was searching for the Messiah; he was always talking about this Man who would redeem the world. I believe that John was searching in the same way that many of you are searching. He wanted to know the truth. He wanted to know reality. John had heard about Jesus, so he sent His disciples to ask, 'Are You the Messiah, the One who will redeem the world?' John's doubt might have arisen from his own circumstances. Like John, I too have been in prison, left feeling abandoned and forsaken, but through it all, there was a hunger deep in my heart for Jesus, to know the reality of His power. I don't want empty religion or ceremony, I want Jesus, the Son of God, who can break every chain and set me free!

They came to Jesus and asked the question, 'are You the One we've been searching for?' Jesus turned to them and said, 'Tell John what you have seen: the blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the Good News is proclaimed to the poor.' - That is your answer. Jesus didn't reply with words but with action. The miracles are the evidence that Jesus is the promised Messiah!
