A Healing Truth & An Update / Prayer Request About Me

Back in the boat, Jesus and the disciples recrossed the sea to Jesus’ hometown. They were hardly out of the boat when some men carried a paraplegic on a stretcher and set him down in front of them. Jesus, impressed by their bold belief, said to the paraplegic, “Cheer up, son. I forgive your sins.” Some religion scholars whispered, “Why, that’s blasphemy!” Jesus knew what they were thinking, and said, “Why this gossipy whispering? Which do you think is simpler: to say, ‘I forgive your sins, ’ or, ‘Get up and walk’? Well, just so it’s clear that I’m the Son of Man and authorized to do either, or both. . . .” At this he turned to the paraplegic and said, “Get up. Take your bed and go home.” And the man did it. The crowd was awestruck, amazed and pleased that God had authorized Jesus to work among them this way. (Matthew 9:1-8 – MSG)


As I am in the hospital, for ten days now, and as I wait for my surgery tomorrow, the above passage of Scripture brings everything into proper perspective. So often we make healing difficult. When Jesus told this man, “I forgive your sins” everyone freaked out. Jesus in a very matter-of-fact way says, (my paraphrase) “Fine! If you can’t handle that then I will say it like this…..GET UP AND WALK!” Either way, what Jesus was saying is, “MY WORD HEALS! MY PRESENCE HEALS! ALL THAT IS NEEDED IS FOR SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IT!”

How come when we do something wrong and then ask for forgiveness, we simply walk away KNOWING we are forgiven? Days later, we never question whether “it worked” or not. We didn’t have a “feeling” when we were forgiven. Nor did we “see” any manifestation when we were forgiven. Yet…..we believe we are forgiven. We just believe it. Period.

Well, according to the words of Jesus, forgiveness and healing are completely the same from HIS viewpoint. He is authorized to do both. Why not let today be the day where WE agree with Him and make it completely the same from OUR viewpoint. Believe that He healed you. Just believe it. Amen!


I appreciate your prayers for:

1. Diarrhea to go away now.
2. Surgery tomorrow to be able to be done laparoscopically. Due to previous abdominal surgery scar tissue is a potential problem and requires incisions which are harder recoveries. I have the top surgeon anywhere for this type surgery. He hasn’t had to “cut” anyone since 1994.
3. For my lungs to function 100% before, during, and after surgery.
4. No complications, infections, or other issues.
5. Finally, able to EAT SOON AFTERWARDS! After what will be 12 days of no food, drink, water, or even ice chips….I AM HUUUNNNNNNGRY!!!

Thanks for your prayers and support! Margie and I love and appreciate each and every one of you! Look for good reports soon!

In Him,
Pastor Kevin Kinchen

  5. Brother Kevin,

    Just to let you know that my sister Sarah Larson and I are praying for you. We are believing with you for a miraculous recovery…..for with God ALL things are possible!


  6. Yes Kevin,
    you are so right, Jesus doesn’t want us to wonder if we are really healed after we pray and say we believe it. We should say, as I’m now starting to say, I am healed and that’s all there is to it! After having bladder problems for so long and having to take antibiotics for the third time and them not working and the doctor wants me to go back and get another kind of antibiotic I just got tired of it all ,so then that’s when I said this is a job for Jesus He is now gonna take over, so now here I am saying as Pastor Jandl said Sunday morning ,I am redeemed from the curse of the law!!!!! Amen, amen amen amen. And I’m claiming it every day.
    I love you Kevin and I will be praying for you. You know that God is so goooood and He does want to heal us!!!!!

    Sarah Larson
