The Healing Power of the Cross - CD or DVD
The Healing Power of the Cross -Father’s very first recorded teaching in 1981 at 38 years old. There is much to take in with this teaching. The Cross is a sign of love. Healing has something to do with the ability to love. Jesus took all the suffering, all the wounds of every man’s heart, and He still loves. He’s not destroyed by it. The glory of God is revealed in the One who is crucified, shining forth from the Cross, that nothing or no one could destroy. The Word of God; Jesus and the love and healing He came to give.
