Hebrews 6:1-2 (NET) Therefore we must progress beyond the elementary instructions about Christ and move on to maturity, not laying this foundation again: repentance from dead works and faith in God, teaching about baptisms, laying on of hands, resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.
One of the very remarkable things that Sandra observed after she received the Holy Spirit was that the power of God was now tangibly in her life. She knew this for sure because after she received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, she gave herself to much praying in the spirit on a daily basis. She was so filled with the power of the Holy Ghost that at certain times it was as though she was drunk.
You know, Ephesians says do not be drunk with wine but be filled with the Holy Spirit (see Ephesians 5:18).
As Sandra continued to learn the Foundational teachings of the faith, she learned that the tangible power of the Holy Spirit that so filled her can flow to other people and cause them to be healed, delivered, etc. She also learned that this happened more easily through the laying on of hands.
After the tongue which the Bible refers to as our glory(compare Psalm 16:9 and Acts 2:26 in KJV), I believe that the hands are the most important body parts for spiritual manifestation and activity. Through the lifting of our hands, we can more easily demonstrate spiritual surrender and connect with the power of heaven, and through our hands, we can more easily transmit spiritual power. It is important for us to understand this because the Lord wants us to share the virtue and power we have received from Him and help people. He says we shall lay our hands on the sick and they shall recover(see Mark 16:18).
The next time you lay your hands on someone or something, be intentional about it and know that power will literally flow out of your spirit through your hands and cause a miracle or healing. Even a broken car can be miraculously fixed because you allowed power to flow from you to it through the laying on of your hands.
Go into today remembering that if you’re baptized in the Holy Spirit, you have received power and this power is transmittable through the laying on of your hands. This power increases when we pray in the spirit.
Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you maintain a spirit-filled life so that your body will be able to transmit His power and heal the sick, cast out devils, and solve problems. Etc.
