Authority to Heal – Restoring the Lost Inheritance of God’s Healing Power by Randy Clark


Reviewed by: Richard R. Blake

 Foundational Evidence and Powerful Testimonies of God’s Miracle Healing Power

In his book “Authority to Heal – Restoring the Lost Inheritance of God’s Healing Power” Randy Clark demonstrates the relevance of Biblical scholarship, Church history, and the formation of theological conclusions. Clark looks into Scriptures and the history of the Church to establish a Biblical foundation for divine healing, and the continuation of Spiritual gifts and a theology of supernatural empowerment, and the impartation of healing as a birthright available to Christians today.

 Examples of miraculous healing in the ministries of Moses, Elijah, Elisha and other O. T. prophets were used as prophetic indicators to point Israel to their coming Messiah. Jesus’ healing ministry in the New Testament fulfilled many of these prophecies which also confirm his identity as the Christ, the promised Messiah.

The book is filled with life lessons in walking for faith, understanding spiritual warfare, prayer, and stewardship. Amazing real-life stories are included which testify of authentic, verifiable miracles of healing and deliverance.

Clark is motivated by a heartfelt desire to clear up some of the confusion and misunderstanding, regarding the continuation of spiritual gifts and an expectation of the miraculous. Clark testifies of how his own personal healing experience moved him from academic thinking to recognizing the truth that, “God has always intended the ministry of healing to be a normative part of the life of the Church.”

Thoroughly researched and well documented “Authority to Heal” is scholarly, thought provoking and relevant for today; a valuable resource for both clergy and lay Christians. This is a book that will resonate with anyone ready to tap into God’s anointing by “Restoring the Lost Inheritance of God’s Healing Power.”

Identity and Destiny – A Message of Hope and Redemption

In their book “Created with Purpose” Johannah Clark Leach and Victoria West Henady share their stories that are testimonies to the grace of God in their lives. The authors write with transparency identifying personal vulnerabilities experienced in their youth. They pass along the lessons they learned by breaking a pattern of destructive choices and of being healed of brokenness.

The book is divided into two parts. Part One looks at the personal journey of discovering and becoming “yourself.” These chapters can become a tool for the reader to find encouragement, comfort, and hope, especially for anyone facing difficulty in discovering their identity in Christ.

Part Two helps the reader in areas of living with grace, sharing your story, fulfilling your destiny, and unlocking your dreams. I received new insights into the stewardship of the mind, taking control of our thoughts, communicating effectively, and the importance of a positive attitude. I also liked their approach to guiding the reader by providing practical specific steps to hone in on activation in their walk of faith that ignites faith in others.

Johannah Clark Leach founded Dance Revelation. Victoria West Henady has a Master’s Degree in Counseling and works with Johanna’s father, Dr. Randy Clark, in the organization Global Awakening and in the dance studio with Johannah. Johannah and Victoria have a passion for mentoring young teens and youth, in Christian values, social skills, and working through finding their identity and destiny.

This is a book that will resonate with a new generation of youth who are focused on Christ’s mandate to discipleship, discovering purpose in life and stepping into their destiny through understanding the deeper meaning of loving God, self and others in light of the redemptive love provided in Jesus.

An Integrated Look at the Physical Body, Emotions, and the Spiritual Being

In “Releasing the Divine Healer Within” Dennis and Dr. Jen Clark present a fresh new approach to understanding how Biblical truth and medical science interact in physical and emotional healing.

Chapters one through four become the foundation for grasping the concept of the biology of belief and healing. Chapter five introduces actual stories of healing experiences that illustrate the principles presented. Other testimonies also appear throughout the book. The final chapters deal with insight into how God’s creative power is integrated with the heart, the body’s cells, our emotions, genetics, and stress in the process toward health and Biblical healing.

The Clark’s write with clarity; the book’s format is reader friendly.  There is a natural progression of instruction for understanding, followed with examples for assimilation, with suggestions for action steps to personal application. The features “Practice” and “Troubleshooting” provide step by step ideas for entering into prayer, receiving results, and recognizing barriers. I appreciated the well documented chapter endnotes which provide the reader with a rich resource for future reading and study.

“Releasing the Divine Healer Within – The Biology of Belief and Healing” is an important reminder to every believer of the indwelling power the divine healer within each of us.

Eight Concepts for Releasing Supernatural Healing Power in our Life

Dr. Randy Clark, president and founder of Global Awakening has a passion for equipping Christians to pray for the sick and see them miraculously restored to health. “Power to Heal – Keys to Activating God’s Healing Power in Your Life” is designed to help the reader recognize the Holy Spirit’s healing power in and through their life. Dr. Clark stresses the importance of embracing the paradigm that a full gospel salvation includes growing in character, and obedience if we are to experience intimacy with God.

The book is formatted topically in a user friendly style. Chapters are filled with instructive guidelines, testimonies of miraculous healings, and scriptural truths for application that illustrate the dual nature of the Gospel message: in words and through the demonstration of God’s power. Dr. Clark leads the reader through a well-organized series of logical step by step progressions including the importance and relationship of prayer, testimony, perseverance, and faith. I found the 5 step prayer model, the 5 principles for healing, and the recommendations for further reading especially helpful.

Clark’s theological position and conclusions present a strong Pentecostal and Charismatic message. His teaching is instructive, convincing, and convicting.

“Power to Heal – Keys to Activating God’s Healing Power in Your Life” is a reminder to every Christian, “We are the vehicles and vessels God wants to use to release His divine healing power.”
