"I encourage anyone who wants to have a better grounding in the biblical, historical, and theological basis for believing in the continuation of the gifts-especially gift of healing-to make this a part of his or her library. This book is not milk; it is meat."
Jesus brought people into direct contact with the power and authority of God. Every healing and miracle revealed the glory of God and the reality of His kingdom. Jesus gave the disciples authority to exercise this realm of God's kingdom. He commanded the disciples to proclaim the gospel of the kingdom, to heal the sick, and deliver the oppressed.
Receive Your Miracle Now presents a strong argument for the legitimacy of a Christian healing ministry in today's church. By studying key passages of Scripture in both the Old and New Testaments, examining the thread of healing throughout church history, and presenting a theological basis for healing and deliverance ministry, Bob Sawvelle demonstrates that through the healing gifts Jesus is glorified, the sick are healed, the oppressed are freed, and God's kingdom advances in the earth.

About the Author
In 2002, Bob and Carolyn Sawvelle established Passion Church in Tucson, Arizona. Prior to coming to Tucson, they served as missionaries in Haiti, and as youth and missions pastors in Florida. They have made numerous short-term ministry outreaches to Belize, Brazil, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Israel, Mexico, Mozambique, Romania, Ukraine and Venezuela. In 1994, while on a stateside trip from Haiti, they were powerfully touched by the Holy Spirit in meetings at the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship, and then again in 1995 in meetings with Randy Clark in Melbourne, Florida. Since that time, they have desired nothing less than to be filled with God’s presence, and allow to His love and power to flow through them to change and heal the lives of others. Bob has a heart for the poor and hurting, and he believes that God is wanting His people to carry His love and power beyond the four walls of our church buildings to those in need. Bob and Carolyn have been trained in healing ministry through Global Awakening Ministries and the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship. Additionally, they have training from Christian International Ministries in prophetic ministry and in the Restoring the Foundations Ministry (RTF). They both are ordained ministers. Bob holds Master’s and DMin degrees in Theology.
