Ted Shuttlesworth Healing Fraud Exposed - Ted Shuttlesworth Sermon
Some think Ted Shuttlesworth is a fraud. I don't. I believe that God gave him the gifts of the Holy Spirit when he was a little boy and he still has them. Brother Ted preaches the word and then Jesus Christ confirms the word with signs following. So the following is a recent sermon on faith by Ted Shuttlesworth from his website at http://www.tedshuttlesworth.com:
"While I was in our outdoor crusade in New Hampshire an earthquake hit on the East Coast. The shaking was felt in Toronto to the north, as far away as Chicago in the west, and as far south as Georgia. The Bible tells us that as we draw closer to the coming of Christ these things will take place more and more.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 Timothy 3:1
God gives us faith for our journey in life. That faith works in every season and in every challenge that comes to you and I. However, Jesus seemed to indicate that our faith would come under great attack in the last days.
I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? Luke 18:8
There is a faith for troubled times! I want to encourage you that God has a plan for your life that will cause you to live in victory no matter what the circumstance. The Lord wants us to have strong faith in these last days that we might be an example of His Faithfulness.
Jesus taught the parable of Divine Protection in Matthew 7:
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. Matthew 7:24,25
The Bible says that faith comes by hearing God’s Word, (Romans 10:17) and it is activated by obeying His Word! (James 1:22)
The man or woman who hears the Word of God and lives by that Word can claim Divine Protection even when the rains come, the floods rise, the wind blows, and even when the earth quakes!
You cannot claim Divine Protection if you’re not willing to obey the Word of God. Jesus gave us the illustration of another man. He heard the Word of God, but he did a foolish thing. He did not obey God’s Word.
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Matthew 7:26, 27
How sad to see many who once were strong in their faith become weak and fall prey to the peril of these perilous times. We must hold forth the Word of life now more than ever! Jesus told us that these troubled times would come, but He has not left us without the help and protection of His Powerful Word!
Jesus taught us that there would come these things to try and defeat our faith.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. Matthew 24:7
There will be famines, but the Great Shepherd has promised to: “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” Psalm 23:5 He will put food on your table, and He can put clothes on your back. He will make a way where there is no way.
There will be pestilences. Sicknesses and diseases that run unchecked in epidemic proportions. I like the 91st Psalm which promises us: “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.” Psalm 91:1-3 Are you shouting yet? I feel my faith being strengthened as I write this word of encouragement to you. We are healed by Jesus Christ today!
There will be earthquakes. I like how the Lord set Paul and Silas free when an earthquake shook the jail they were in. God used this unusual circumstance to bring Salvation to the jailer and his family. “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.” Acts 16:25
Our prayer and praise always brings the victory! What do you do when your faith seems weak and you feel like you have lost? Open up your mouth and praise the Lord for His mercy endures forever! Hallelujah!!"
