Prosperity & Health

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.3 John 1:2 KJV

This is a conditional promise based upon our willingness, and determined purpose, to prosper our soul withe the Word of God (the Bible).

It’s amazing how many born-again people lay claim to the promises of God without qualifying themselves through sinple obedience to the Word.

Let us not be one of them.


Healed

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 KJV

It is the will, and way, of God to heal. He is Jehovah Rapha (the God that binds up our wounds and heals us).

God semt Jesus and His Word to heal you.


You Were Healed

(Painting by Dr. Bill Sharp – Easter 2018)

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 1 Peter 2:24 KJV

When you have a fever, when you’re diagnosis is frighteningly negative, it is absolutely necessary that you speak what God’s Word says. You’ve got to take control of your thoughts by speaking.

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV

Jesus already has dealt with sickness and disease! 1 Peter 2:24 simply brings Isaiah’s prophecy to this side of the Cross.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 KJV

Many are the verses that promise healing from God who is Jehovah Rapha (the God that heals you).

Find them in your Bible, memorize them, and speak them out loud until you’ve got it!


Under the Shadow

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psalms 91:1 KJV

If the shadow of Peter brought healing and cure to people, how much more will healing and wholeness come to those abiding under the shadow of the Almighty.

Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. Acts 5:15 KJV

The secret place is the place of constant communion with God. We enter in by prayer and abide by faith.

Be healed.


Healer


Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:4‭-‬5 KJV

The fall of Adam, the first man, brought the full weight of sin upon the whole of creation. sickness, disease, poverty, strife, hatred, and much more, were loosed upon mankind. The creation became cursed.

God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, and He became the cursed that we might become the blessed. He redeemed us from sickness and disease and set us free from the bondage of satan’s dominion.

 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 1 Peter 2:24 KJV


Health & Healing

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:  Hebrews 12:14 KJV

Being contentious and mean spirited will make you sick, infirm, and, eventually, kill you. It will cut you off from God and leave you subject to the vain imaginations of your own mind and even under the influence of the “fiery darts” of demon spirits.

Being loving and kind hearted will heal you. Such is the way of God.

“Forgive and you shall be forgiven” is a command as is “love one another.”

There is no place for, nor excuse for, schism (strife and contention) as we walk in the loving kindness and forgiveness in Christ.

Choose life, peace, health. The choice is in your heart and expressed through your lips.

There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.  Proverbs 12:18 KJV

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.  Proverbs 18:21 KJV


Deliverance

Those who follow Jesus should be demonstrating His resurrection power by signs, wonders, and miracles.

Jesus came to save, heal, and deliver. His Presence in you will manifest the same ministry and results as you yield to the Holy Spirit.

Mark 16:15-18 gives the marching orders for every true believer:
“… Go ye into all the world, and preached the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents;and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

Our call is pretty plain isn’t it? All we need do is go forth and we are assured that we will have “the Lord working with (us) and conforming the word with signs following.”

Amen!
