This teaching is designed to show you from the Holy Scriptures what is written concerning your state of health. The word of God is the only valid report concerning your life.
3rd John 1:2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
The first thing I need you to understand about health is, it is God’s desire for you to be healthy; one of our redemptive rights as believers is to enjoy divine health.
Isaiah 25:6-8 “And in this mountain, shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.
7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.
8 He will swallow up death in victory, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.”
Be encouraged in the Lord by reading and believing His word. Knowing that if He says it, it will come to pass.
The above scripture is one of the promises of God to His children, death has been swallowed up in victory, and Jesus Christ took care of sicknesses and diseases thousand years ago on the cross. He said “it is finished” that means, your pulmonary hypertension is finished, cancer is finished, migraines are finished, and anything that makes you not true to enjoy the blessedness of salvation is finished. You can be encouraged knowing these things are true and are fulfilled through Christ. For Jesus Christ is our blessed Hope.
God has promised us long life, but we cannot enjoy longevity when we are not experiencing divine health. Therefore, supernatural health is your sure ticket for long life. Matthew 8:17, Jesus Christ has fulfilled the scripture “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.”
If then Jesus Christ has redeemed us from pain, sickness, and disease why are Christians suffering?
There is an innate desire for every man to live in health, but the devil has come to steal, kill and destroy.
Who is the reason behind sicknesses and diseases?
Job 2:7 “So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.”
John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” The devil is the thief; he is here to steal every benefit accrued to believers including divine health. However, he will not succeed because our Lord Jesus Christ has come to give us life in abundance. Acts 10:38 “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”
How to swim in health and cure
1. Recognized that Jesus is our great physician Matthew 9:12 “But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.” Jesus is the only physician who admits the dead in His clinic because He has the power of life and death. Doctors treat by prescription, nurses care, pastors preach, but only God heals. This is where some Christians get it wrong; they focus their trust in man instead of the Source; if you tie your healing to man, you will remain sick.
2. Recognize that Jesus primarily heals by the word; the ultimate of every balm is God’s word. Psalms 107:20 “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” Go for the word of God; seek the truth from the Word and activate it with Faith.
3. Recognize that the flesh and the blood of Jesus is the principal balm John 6:47-48 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life.” Verse 50 “This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 55-56 “For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.”
Stop taking the Holy communion religiously; it does more than that; it is the key to divine health, all you have to do is believe John 1:12
Let’s take a closer look at the communion; what is in the communion?
The communion empowers us to live like Christ. Leviticus 17:11 “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.”
It empowers for total health, vitality and longevity: Matthew 26:28-29“For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”
Psalms 92:13-14 “Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
What are the covenant pillars for long life?
You must realize that your case is different: Exodus 12:12-13 “For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord. And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.”
You must be born-again: Psalms 91:1, 6 “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” You have to dwell in the secret place to be exempted from the evils of this world.
Bold declaration: Psalms 91:2 and 4 “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.” The devil is not a gentleman; he doesn’t understand your tears, you have to be bold in taking what is rightfully yours. Speak the word of God boldly to the situation, and then he will flee. In verse 4 “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Psalms 23:4
Divine wisdom: Proverbs 24:5 “A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.”
Wisdom is the fear of God: Psalms 111:10. One of the most successful men in the Bible is Joseph; Joseph feared the Lord. Genesis 42:18. Wisdom enables us to live a healthy lifestyle. Discipline your appetite to eat right, to think positive, to exercise, and drink plenty of water, in order to nurture your body and soul.
Encourage Yourself: Note that Christianity does not equate careless living, endeavor to live a healthy lifestyle, do not leave common sense on “the altar of Faith” Wisdom is profitable to direct: Ecclesiastes 10:10. May God give you the understanding of this teaching in Jesus name Amen.
