“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” (1 Corinthians 6:19)
As a child of God your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost (1 Corinthians 6:19). Your body is not yours, it’s owned by God, but you’re the caretaker of your body. You’re to keep watch over your body and keep it in health. You’re the one to decide what to allow or disallow from your physical body. This is the reason you must learn to exercise authority over your body by rejecting sickness, disease and infirmity.
Sometimes we find believers who ignorantly make the wrong confessions over their bodies; like the one who says, “I always wake up with headaches” or “I always get sick during winter season” When folks talk this way, they’re actually nursing and pampering sickness over their bodies without realizing it.
Rather than nurse and pamper sickness in your body with such negative confessions, you ought to exercise your God-given authority and say “In the Name of Jesus, I refuse to accommodate sickness in my body!” You’re not ordinary; refuse to be infected by any sickness, disease or infirmity. When sickness tries to fasten itself to your body, reject it. Don’t accommodate abnormal growths in your body; cut them out with the Word. Tell your body what to do and it will obey you.Healing, Uncategorized tagged by admin
“It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]…” (John 6:63 AMP)
If you’re born again, and have received the Holy Spirit, no sickness, disease or infirmity should have the power or ability to ravage your body. This is a reality and it’s important that you catch it. The Holy Spirit is the life-giver and key to every blessing; He is the source of all life in the earth.
When the Holy Spirit—the life-giver—takes His abode in you, He gives life to your physical body. Even if your body had been paralyzed, His presence in you will restore you to perfect health! The Bible says if Christ be in you, though the body be dead because of sin; that is, though it be broken because of sickness and disease, the Spirit gives it life because of righteousness (Romans 8:10). As one who’s born again and has received the Holy Spirit, you don’t need prayer to be healed of any infirmity. You can simply walk out of that sickness or predicament you may have found yourself in.
So stir up that gift of God in you, and work out salvation in your body and every other area of your life through the Holy Spirit.Healing, Uncategorized tagged by admin
“But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels” (Hebrews 12:22).
Our opening verse shows that we are citizens of Zion. One of distinguishing qualities of those in Zion is that they don’t get sick, “And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity” (Isaiah 33:24).
God’s Word clearly shows us that sickness has no place in the new creation. Matthew 8:17 says, “…Himself [Jesus] took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” If He took them, then we don’t have them. It’s not in your nature as the new creation to be sick!
2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” This means, if you were sick, and couldn’t walk before you were born again, now that you’re born again, old things have passed away; the sickness or disease is passed; you are healed because all things are become new! Declare boldly, “I walk in the Name of Jesus,” then get up and walk.
The new man carries the indestructible, indefatigable, unconquerable, and invincible life of God – Zoë. God has ordained us to live the supernatural life naturally! Hallelujah!Healing, Uncategorized tagged by admin
You’re not just a body; you’re a spirit. Your physical body is your house. 1 Corinthians 6:20 says, “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” That means your body belongs to God; He has bought it with the blood of Jesus.
Although your body belongs to God, He has made you its caretaker. Therefore, if you’re ever confronted by sickness or disease in your body, it’s your responsibility to do something about it!
God has already done what He needs to do about your physical health; He’s already provided healing for you, and nothing stops you from living in divine health. Matthew 8:17 says, “…Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” So, you ought to be healthy and strong!
Learn to keep to your body healthy and strong using the Word, for it is medicine to your flesh. (Proverbs 4:22) Hallelujah!Healing, Uncategorized tagged by admin
“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones” (Proverbs 17:22)
If you’d observe people over a time, you’d make the remarkable discovery that people who don’t laugh, easily get sick, whereas, laughing people don’t get sick. This means laughter is more spiritual than many realize. There’s more to it than a mere response to a joke or hilarious event. In the Kingdom of God, laughter is medicine: “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones” (Proverbs 17:22).
Laughter is generally found in an atmosphere that’s full of joy. The anointing of the Holy Spirit is most effective in such an environment. When the anointing is present in an environment, everything that’s not of God, including sicknesses, diseases and infirmities are dispelled.
Let the joy of the Lord spring up from within your heart in spite of prevailing situations. Learn to laugh your way to health and victory! Let nothing take the laughter of the Spirit from your mouth.Healing, Uncategorized tagged by admin
Eternal life, the essence of God – His very nature – is God’s gift to all who believe in Jesus. It’s the life Jesus brought to the world, that’s why He said in John 10:10, “…I am come that they might have life (eternal life), and that they might have it more abundantly”; it’s the transcendent life of glory. If you’re born again, that divine, glorious life of God has supplanted your frail humanity.
“No one in Zion will say, “I’m sick.” Best of all, they’ll all live guilt-free” (Isaiah 33:24)
The new creation in Christ Jesus has had his human life supplanted with God’s divine life, and the Spirit of God now gives life to his physical body: “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you” (Romans 8:11).
Thus as one whom the Spirit of God dwells, sickness, disease and infirmity shouldn’t have a place in your physical body because the Life-giver lives in you. Understand that sickness is not part of our heritage in the Kingdom of God; hence you must reject it with absolute vehemence. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God…” This means everything associated with the life of sin has passed away, including sickness, disease and infirmity. Your physical body has become God’s habitation; sickness has no right to co-exist with the Holy Spirit in your body, therefore refuse to be sick!Healing, Uncategorized tagged by admin
“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” 2 Corinthians 4:6
The Scripture above reveals the power and greatness of our God – He commanded light to come out of darkness. And according to the Scriptures, this same God has Himself shined in our hearts! This means He has brought within us the same ability to cause light to shine out of any dark situation.
So as a Christian, the power to cause something positive to come out of any negative situation resides in you. Thus, if for example, a Christian has been diagnosed with cancer or diabetes, to him, that cancer or diabetes is the darkness he’s facing, and the light he desires to see is his healing. God is saying he can produce healing out of that cancer or diabetes! He can call forth his healing.
No matter what darkness may be facing you today, you can command light to come out of it. If it’s sickness or pain in your body, place your hand on that part of your body and call forth healing. Right in the midst of the seeming impossibilities are your opportunities to excel! Call light out of darkness today.Healing, Uncategorized tagged by admin
“My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh” (Proverbs 4:20-22)
The word “health” in our opening scripture connotes soundness, or that which has curative ability. In other words, God’s Word is therapeutic, curative and has regenerative ability – it is medicine for your body.
God’s Word brings healing and soundness; this is why it’s important as a Christian to give the Word your undivided attention, and be a doer of the Word. As you digest God’s Word into your spirit through meditation, it will destroy sickness, make you impermeable to disease, and produce life and health in you.
If you’re facing any challenge in your physical body today, the Word of God is the medicine you need; take it as diligently as you would a doctor’s prescription. Not only would it destroy the sickness, it will give you divine immunity against sickness, disease and infirmity.
Meditate on the Word today; as you do, you can be sure that healing and health are being perfected in your physical body, whether you feel it or not. Praise God.Healing, Uncategorized tagged by admin
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12)
When the Word of God gets into your spirit, it has the power to make you what it talks about, bringing about a transformation. The Word is the only agent that can transform a person’s life on all three levels–spirit, soul and body.
Romans 12:2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…” this means that the Word can also transform your way of thinking. Then also, the Word can transform your physical body: “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings… for they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.” (Proverbs 4:20-22). The word “health” is from the Hebrew word “marpe” which means medicine, showing God’s Word will immunize you against sickness and infirmity.
Make a personal decision to improve your life every day with the Word of God, and your life would be truly an unending stream of success, health and progress. Praise God.
