Mark 11:23 and 24 keynote Kenneth Hagin’s life and ministry. He first believed these startling statements from the lips of Jesus while lying almost totally paralyzed and completely bedfast from a deformed heart and incurable blood diseases.
Doctors did not expect him to reach his 17th birthday. But after 16 months bedfast he believed that these Scriptures meant what they said – acted upon them in simple faith – and rose up healed. Later the Lord called him to “Go teach my people faith.” The fulfilling of this calling has now spanned more than 40 years with its emphasis on the integrity of God’s Word.
