Lesson 07: The Prophetic Doctor
Lecturer: Apostle Colette Toach
Based on Chapter 08 of The Minister's Handbook by Apostle Colette Toach
With so much emphasis put on prophecy in the prophetic ministry these days one vital function of the prophet is often left out. If you have a prophetic calling then I know that your heart burns for those that have been hurt and abused. You look around you and see many believers that have been mistreated and you want to reach out and help.
Your prayers can be a powerful healing for them, but you have something even greater to offer! As a prophet the Lord will often give you revelations of a person’s past and some of the things that they have gone through. Why does he do this? To expose their sin? No! He has done this for an even greater reason. He has done this, so that you can minister to those hurts.
If you break your leg in the natural, you can just go to the doctor to have it fixed. But where do you go for a broken heart or pains of rejection? Who can heal these? As a prophet you are called to be the Lord’s doctor. To heal those wounds deep inside.
I am going to write down a very simple guideline right here for you to follow. Follow these steps and you will be on your way to being a master spiritual surgeon.
Step 1: Repentance
When someone has experienced any kind of hurt, there is going to be bitterness involved! I recommend that you listen to The Stain of Sin to understand this step better.
Step 2: Dealing with Bondage.
Once the person has dealt with their bitterness, then they can deal with the demonic bondage that they gave license to through their sin. (You need to understand that the enemy cannot attack without license! If you try to help a person break free before they have repented, you will come under a lash back).
Step 3: Healing
Finally once you have dealt with their bitterness and the demonic bondages that came in as a result, you can speak healing into their hearts. This healing is as miraculous as a natural healing and if you take care to follow each step, that person will walk away changed!
I have given just a small understanding for each of these points. You are not just called to prophesy, you are also called to heal and you have that ability right now in your spirit. Do not be afraid to step forward an
