In Matthew 8 we read the story of a Roman centurion:
And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
(Matt. 8:5-7)
Jesus Was Willing To Make a Personal Appearance
What a cause for rejoicing! The man did not know if Jesus would come or not, but Jesus said, "I will come to your house, and I will heal him."

How many of us would have jumped up and down rejoicing because Jesus was coming to our house! To this man, however, a personal visit was not necessary.
The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it, he marveled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
(Matt. 8:8-10)
Jesus had just told this man that He would make a personal appearance to heal the servant. The man replied, "No, do not do that. You do not have to. I know what authority is, for I am a man who has some authority. I have servants, and I say, "Go," and they go.

"I recognize that You are a man of authority, and You do not even need to come to my house. All you have to do is speak the Word, and the authority of your Word will give my servant perfect healing." And Jesus marveled at his faith!

What happened? Jesus said to the centurion, "Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour" (Matt. 8:13).

The centurion received the miracle for his servant by accepting Jesus' spoken word. You, too, can receive the healing anointing of God through the spoken word.

Perhaps the word you receive will be a gift of the word of knowledge given in a meeting where God's power is manifest.

Healing Through A Word Of Knowledge In Denver
I was in Denver for a meeting when I sensed the power of God moving, and I began to speak forth the healings. A woman in that service had a problem with her neck. As the word was spoken forth, she felt the warmth of the healing power of God go over her neck, and it was released.

She came to the front to give her testimony, so I walked up to her with the microphone. She fell under the power of God.

When she got up, I went back to her, and she fell over again. Finally, we just went ahead with the meeting. The next day she gave her testimony. She had been healed in her neck, and she had not even thought to ask God to heal her leg.

She was born with the tibia bone in one leg shorter that the other one. Consequently, she wore a built-up heel on one shoe. When she came forward to give her testimony about the healing in her neck, she did not think to ask for healing for her leg. All she knew was every time I walked past her, she fell down.

She went home that night, got in the bathtub, looked down, and saw that her knees were even for the first time in her life. She said, "I am going to have to believe God for the money to buy new shoes, because I cannot walk in these things now."

She was healed of her neck ailment by a spoken word, and then God performed a creative miracle in her legs!
