Are You Sick? Are You Sick of Being Sick?
My heart breaks as I consider a lost and hurting humanity in the world today; the church world and the secular world.
Most are deceived by the influences that are so attractive; fun; worldly pleasing to our senses. They feed their eyes, ears, taste, mind, etc only on that which feels good, or is easy to get and brings pleasure.
The consequence is sick minds and bodies; a failing or weak physical and spiritual immune system.
Where do they go for healing? Most often, the same person, place or thing that made them sick in the first place. This is not the message of Jesus Christ, the cross, and repentance.
2 Corinthians 7:10 For the sorrow which God gives is the cause of salvation (rescue or safety) through a change of heart, in which there is no reason for grief: but the sorrow of the world is a cause of death.
We live in an age where almost all knowledge is available online, from the very best to the very worst, and everything in between.
What do you choose to fill your mind with? What are the results; physically, mentally, spiritually. How are you affecting your life from the foods you choose to eat and the influences you choose to sit under, feed on, and meditate on?
Do you really want healing and health? Try God’s way, as taught by His Holy Spirit, through the Scriptures.
Here is a concept for healing from the founder of the denomination whose site you are currently feeding on.

Divine healing is simply divine life. It is the headship of Christ over the body. It is the life of Christ within our frame. It is the union of our members with the very body of Christ and the inflowing life of Christ in our living members. it is as real as His risen and glorified body.
Divine healing is as reasonable as the fact that He was raised from the dead and is today a living man with a true body and a rational soul at God's right hand.
That living Christ belongs to us in all His attributes and powers. We are members of His body, His flesh and His bones. And if we can only believe it and receive it, we may live upon the very life of the Son of God.
Lord, help me to know the body . . . for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
[My note: According to NET Bible notes on John1:12 (N28….” It might also be that for John, faith was an activity, something that men do.”) So I believe that it is for AB Simpon, receiving is an action in response to belief and trust that equals obedience.
There is healing in the promise,
There is healing in the blood,
There is strength for all our weakness
In the risen Son of God.
And the feeblest of His children
All His glorious life may share;
He has healing balm in Gilead,
He's, the Great Physician there.
Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? —Jeremiah 8:22
Even the World has good and bad ideas for health and healing. You have the Pharmaceutical way and Alternative, Natural way. One puts you in bondage. The other sets you free and generally delivers you, when you stop doing what is harmful and start doing what is healing. In Spiritual language that is repentance.
A thought that someone shared with me…. “Obedience is to Purpose, what water is to a seed.”
Very true! What are the purposes of your life? What voice and thoughts are you yielding to in obedience?
Romans 6:16 Are you not conscious that you are the servants of him to whom you give yourselves to do his desire? if to sin, the end being death, or if to do the desire of God, the end being righteousness.
Romans 6:16 Do you not know that if you present yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness?
James 4:7-8 So submit to God. But resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and make your hearts pure, you double-minded.
Forgive! Let go! Give it to God! Obey the Holy Spirit!
