How to harvest the power to heal your physical body (Lesson 1 Part 2 of 2)

Understanding how the human body functions (Part 2 of Lesson 1)”

holistic healing 01

Making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. (Proverb 2:2-5)

 The Bible further says that “my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”  (Hosea 4:6)

The problem before us in the healing of disease is to increase the inflow and distribution of vital energy throughout the system, and this can only be done by eliminating thoughts of fear, worry, care, anxiety, jealousy, hatred, and every other destructive thought, which tend to tear down and destroy the nerves and glands which control the excretion and elimination of poisonous and waste matter.

“Nourishing foods and strengthening tonics” cannot bestow life, because these are but secondary manifestations to life.  The primary manifestation of life and how you may get in touch with it is what I will now attempt to explain to you.

holistic healing 03First let us begin with knowledge, which is of priceless value, because by applying knowledge we can make our future what we wish it to be.  When we realize that our present character, our present environment, our present ability, our present physical condition are all the result of past methods of thinking, we shall begin to have some conception of the value of knowledge.

If the state of our health is not all that could be desired, let us examine our method of thinking; let us remember that every thought produces an impression on the mind; every impression is a seed which will sink into the subconscious and form a tendency; the tendency will be to attract other similar thoughts and before we know it we shall have a crop which must be harvested.

If these thoughts contain disease germs, the harvest will be sickness, decay, weakness, and failure; the question is, what are we thinking, what are we creating, what is the harvest to be?

James Allen wrote in his book, “Mind is the Master,” these words.  “Even physical conditions are largely determined by mental states, and to this truth the scientific world is rapidly being drawn.  The old, materialistic belief that a man is what his body makes him is rapidly passing away, and is being replaced by the inspiring belief that man is superior to his body, and that his body is what he makes it by the power of thought.  Men everywhere are ceasing to believe that a man is despairing because he is dyspeptic, and are coming to understand that he is dyspeptic because he is despairing, and in the near future, the fact that all disease has its origin in the mind will become common knowledge.

There is no evil in the universe but has its root and origin in the mind, and sin, sickness,images (18) sorrow, and affliction do not, in reality, belong to the universal order, are not inherent in the nature of things, but are the direct outcome of our ignorance of the right relations of things.

According to tradition, there once lived, in India, a school of philosophers who led a life of such absolute purity and simplicity that they commonly reached the age of one hundred and fifty years, and to fall sick was looked upon by them as an unpardonable disgrace, for it was considered to indicate a violation of law.

The sooner we realize and acknowledge that sickness, far from being the arbitrary visitation of an offended God, or the test of an unwise Providence, is the result of our own error or sin, the sooner shall we enter upon the highway of health?  Disease comes to those who attract it, to those whose minds and bodies are receptive to it, and flee from those whose strong, pure, and positive thought-sphere generates healing and life-giving currents.

This concludes lesson 1 on understanding, we will continue next week with lesson 2 title: “How the power of Knowledge functions in helping to heal the physical body.”

How to harvest the power to heal your physical body (Lesson 1)

Understanding how the human body functions (Part 1)

holistic healing 01

Making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. (Proverb 2:2-5)

The Bible further says that “my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”  (Hosea 4:6)

Today, we want you to get in touch with Omnipotence; get in touch with this power, come into a deep and vital understanding, appreciation, and realization of the fact that your ability to think is your ability to act upon the Universal Mind, and bring it into manifestation, realize that it will meet any and every requirement; that you have exactly the same potential ability which any individual ever did have or ever will have, because each is but an expression or manifestation of the One, all are parts of the whole, there is no difference in kind or quality, the only difference being one of degree.

We have come to know that thinking is a spiritual process, that vision and imagination preceded action and event that the day of the dreamer has come.

Therefore, we come into the knowledge that your thoughts are spiritual seeds, holistic healing 04which, when planted in the subconscious mind, have a tendency to sprout and grow, but unfortunately the fruit is frequently not to our liking.

The various forms of inflammation, paralysis, nervousness, and diseased conditions generally, are the manifestation of fear, worry, care, anxiety, jealousy, hatred, and similar thought.

Our bodies are made up of many cells; electrons manifest in the body as cells, and possess mind and intelligence sufficient for them to perform their functions in the human physical anatomy.  Every part of the body is composed of cells, some of which operate independently; others in communities.  Some are busy building tissue, while others are engaged in forming the various secretions necessary for the body.  Some act as carriers of material; others are the surgeons whose work it is to repair damage; others are scavengers, carrying off waste; others are constantly ready to repel invaders or other undesirable intruders of the germ family.

The life processes are carried on by two distinct methods; first, the taking up and making use of nutritive material necessary for constructing cells; second, breaking down and excreting the waste material.

All life is based upon these constructive and destructive activities, and as food, water and air are the only requisites necessary for the construction of cells, it would seem that the problem of prolonging life indefinitely would not be a very difficult one.

However strange it may see, it is the second or destructive activity that is, with rare exception, the cause of all disease.  The waste material accumulates and saturates the tissues, which causes autointoxication.  This may be partial or general.  In the first case the disturbance will be local; in the second place it will affect the whole system.

In our next lesson we will continue with, “Understanding how the human body functions (Part 2 of Lesson 1)”

How to harvest the power to heal your physical body (Introduction)

How to harvest the power to heal your physical body (Introduction)

YOU ARE CALLED BY THE WORD OF GOD

YOU ARE CALLED BY THE WORD OF GOD

Today, we will begin an in-depth study on healing the physical body, providing you with the necessary tools that you can use to manifest healing that will enable you to enjoy a healthier life style.

I do this because God said, “it’s time for a change, and my people are suffering because of a lack of VISION in their life style.”  Instead of my people enjoying the benefits of a healthier life, their physical bodies are rapidly decaying due to the lack of KNOWLEDGE of how to bring about the necessary changes that will provide them with a healthier physical body.

God said to me to tell my people this, “ ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you–rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!(A)  2For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you.”  (Isaiah 60:1-2 AMP).

God wants you to take a stand against the evil spirits that have help to put your physical bodies on the road to decay.   He wants you to be made complete again, because your natural state is wellness, and the primary manifestation of life and how you may get in touch with it, is what I will now attempt to explain to you.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters I encourage you to follow this series of teaching on getting healthier and staying that way.  From now to the second week of February I will be posting one or more articles on this topic to provide you with the necessary info to help you grow and age gracefully.

TRAIN THE BODY MIND AND SOUL FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH

TRAIN THE BODY MIND AND SOUL FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH

My Brothers and Sisters the time is upon us to get our physical bodies and spiritual minds in tip top condition so God can use us in His Kingdom Building Work.

It is no accident that Paul used an athletic metaphor to describe the pursuit of godliness.  Paul knows there was the potential for victory or loss, so to assure our victory in this spiritual contest, he warned us to exercise.  In 1Timothy 4:7 he used the verb train, which is the Greek word gumnazo, which is where we get our word gymnasium.  The word speaks of not just training, but of “the focused discipline behind the training.”  Discipline demands commitment and consistency.  You will never become godly by accident-an attitude of discipline must precede the pursuit of godliness.

The attitude of one, who would be godly, is first and foremost, one of focus.  Satan has any number of distractions waiting in the wings to keep us off the track toward godliness.  Some of them are even good things–but not better than becoming like God.  The way to keep our focus is to, as the book of Hebrews encouraged us, “fix our eyes on Jesus” (12:2NIV).

Put simply having a goal and focus is not enough.  Physical exercise requires sustained, rigorous effort.  It is not easy.  Spiritual exercise is no different.  Displaying the character of Christ is work.  It is the result of making a conscious decision to live your life based on who you are in Christ.  Godliness is an act of volition.  You must choose to walk, live, and act godly demands personal responsibility and commitment, which grow out of knowing who God is and knowing how committed He is to you.  Once you understand that, then Paul said exercise.

But be aware that exercise is never done in the actual competition.  It only prepares you for the competition.  Once the contest starts, it’s too late to get into shape.  When the bell rings or the first gun goes off, it’s too late to try and get in fifty crunches or a set of leg lifts.  After the coin is tossed and positions are taken, this is not the time for skipping rope or jumping jacks.  You have to be in shape before the game starts to have a chance at winning.

Spiritual exercise begins with Bible study, prayer, meditation, and fasting.  It continues when we practice instant obedience to God’s will.  We expand that exercise by allowing God to reign in our lives.  Spiritual exercise is to be woven into the very fabric and foundation of our lives.  That requires commitment, discipline, perseverance, and long suffering.  We only grow to be the people God wants us to be when we allow our exercise to secure our foundations and stretch our abilities.

 

BEAT THE DEVIL AT HIS OWN GAME

BEAT THE DEVIL AT HIS OWN GAME

CHILDREN OF GOD, I declare to you that it is time for you to begin to fight the good fight and win.  You have been summed to come forward and BEAT THE DEVIL AT HIS OWN GAME, if you would stop being a couch potato, learn to walk by the Spirit, step outside and rediscover the beauty that God has blessed you to be able to see and observe.  Begin by taking a daily walk 30 minutes to an hour daily.  You will soon discover your physical strength returning to you, your spiritual mind has taken control and now you are beginning to walk by the true spirit of God.  You see your body is an electrical and mechanically flesh and blood piece of machinery.  It responds to the signals given to it by the minds energy field.

Now let us look at just how we can obtain that goal:  You have heard the expression, he or she is just a couch potato.  There is no need for you to allow this to happen to you.  You can start by pushing the off button on that remote that lays beside you in the bed are on the couch.  You see the T.V. has become the devil’s greatest avenue of convincing you that he is in control of your life. He acts out your life for you; he carries on the conversation in your house for you.  He thinks for you.  Finally, when he has total control of your mind and body, he zaps your physical strength by keeping you in bondage as a couch potato where he can watch over you.  You never seen to have the strength are desire to do any type of physical exercise.

Your batteries need to be recharged regularly in order for you to function at your maximum capacity, and one of the ways to recharge those batteries is a daily walk.  Do not just stroll down the walkway in a hurry to return for more of the devil’s old games.  Make your walk meaningful by looking around, relaxing and becoming one with God, the universe is there waiting for you to re-discover.

God’s ideal for the believer is that we live our lives in the realm of the Holy SpiritWalking in the Spirit, the exercise we should strive for refers to one’s lifestyle.  In other words, we are to live a lifestyles characterized by the Person and work of the Spirit of God.  To be led by the Spirit suggests that same Spirit directs our lifestyle.  It means we allow Him to point the way, to navigate us through the turns and intersections of life.

When you are truly walking by the Spirit, in line with the Spirit, maintaining your cover and alignment, you cannot be seen; only He can be seen.  When people look at you, they see Him.  When you speak, He speaks.  Walking in the Spirit is not so much you becoming an extension of God the Holy Spirit, but the Spirit of God living in you, living through you, touching lives through you, and blessing others through you.

Walking by the Spirit means you stay in line with God.  It means you do not break the line.  It means you do not get out of line.  You do not move until it is your turn.   It means you live your life following the lead of the Holy Spirit.

Some of you are losing battles you should be winning because you are not in shape.  It is not just that Satan and his pimps are on your trail.  Some demons cannot be cancelled out.  They have to be cast out.  Jesus said some demons come out only by fasting and prayer.  Fasting and
prayer are essential exercises.  Some of you are holy but ungodly.  You come to church every Sunday, but you are not in shape.  You cannot work out once a week and expect to see results.  Walking through the gym once a week does not get you in shape.  God has called you to be a godly woman or a godly man.  He wants your relationship with Him to be manifested in your conduct and actions.  Godliness is not measured by your behavior in church or the way you conduct yourself in the spotlight.  God wants you to leave your church seat, walk out of the door back out into the world, and do what He has called you to do, the way He has called you to do it.

It is time to get in shape.  Sign up for a heavenly gym membership.  There is open enrollment.  And what a deal!  Jesus paid the price in full at Calvary.  But don’t be satisfied with just signing
up.  Go on and work out.  Stick with the program.  You will soon see the results you have been
looking for.  Remember, winners never quit and quitters never win.  Now is the time to get up off that couch, stop being called a couch potato and begin to fight to win.  Learn to walk by the
Spirit and be counted among the stars.

But I say walk and live [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit [responsive to and controlled and guided by the Spirit]; then you will certainly not gratify the cravings and desires of the flesh (of human nature without God). (Galatians 5:16 AMP)

BEAT THE DEVIL AT HIS OWN GAME, and begin to live in the newness of this life been renewed by the Holy Spirit as He lifts you to heights unknown and unthinkable by you in this space and time.  “DO IT NOW!”

LORD LET ME RECOVER MY SIGHT

Blindness

Blindness (Photo credit: Community Eye Health)

 

Let me begin today’s lesson with a question to each one of you, and the question is this, “Are you suffering from a physical blindness or perhaps from spiritual blindness?”  Our lesson today will take you deep into the heart of these two types of blindness and show you what happens when a beggar hears that Jesus is passing by and he yelled out to the Lord and asked the Lord this question, he said, “LORD LET ME RECOVER MY SIGHT?”  And Jesus said to him, “Recover your sight; your faith has made you well. (Luke 18:41-42 ESV)

As Jesus and the disciples traveled towards Jerusalem, they approached Jericho and sitting beside the road was a beggar who was blind and disabled.  When the blind man heard that Jesus of Nazareth was going by, he shamelessly cried out for Jesus’ attention.  He called Son of David,” a title for the Messiah.  This means that the blind man understood Jesus to be the long awaited Messiah.  The crowds tried to hush the man, perhaps trying to keep Jesus from being harassed by beggars.  But that only made the blind man more persistent.

Any normal human being, heading toward certain death, would be extremely preoccupied and probably not necessarily in the mood to help others.  But Jesus did not reject the man as the crowd had done.  He ordered that the man be brought to him, and then asked him to voice his request.  The man replied unhesitatingly, “I want to see!”  How many times in his life had he voiced that desire?  Probably thousands, But here he stood before the one person in the universe who could actually make his desire a reality.  And he would not have asked if he had not believed that it could be so.

Jesus recognized the man’s faith.  As a result of such faith, Jesus healed him.  All Jesus did was speak the words and instantly the man could see.  He immediately joined the crowd of followers, staying with Jesus, and praising God.  This was also the response of the people in the crowd.  There were no healings of the blind recorded in the Old Testament, so the Jews believed that such a miracle would be a sign that the messianic age had begun.  Jesus healed other blind people as well, so these people knew something special was happening.  A poor and blind beggar could see that Jesus was the Messiah, and the crowds understood that God was to be praised for such miracles.  But the religious leaders who saw his miracles were blinded to his identity and refused to recognize him as the Messiah.

When we come into the full knowledge and power of understanding that our sickness and diseases are curable through our faith in Jesus, and although we may be spiritual blind just like these religious leaders were, our eyes can be open by our faith in Jesus and we can see the glory of the Lord.  Let us praise God for his mighty works through his son Jesus for opening the blind man’s eyes when the blind man yelled out to Jesus with these words, “LORD LET ME RECOVER MY SIGHT?”  And Jesus said to him, “Recover your sight; your faith has made you well. (Luke 18:41-42 ESV)  Isn’t God good?  In everything you do this day, everyplace you go, and with every person you come in contact with, you ought to greet them with these words, “GOD IS GOOD!”  Let there be no shame in your game, speak truth to power, in the name of Jesus, AMEN!

WE ARE COMMANDED TO LOVE HEAL AND FORGIVE

WE ARE COMMANDED TO LOVE HEAL AND FORGIVE

How do we repair a major breach in our lives, when that breach is the glue that binds us together?  Jesus commanded us to love one another.  Love our neighbor as ourselves.  The very first thing we need to do is to get Jesus into our homes, schools, communities, workplace and everywhere we work and playJesus is love; he is alpha and omega, the beginning and the end.  He is the author and finisher of our faith.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’  But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Matthew 5:43-48 ESV).

Now my friends, take a few more minutes of your valuable time, and watch this video clip about love, healing and forgiveness.  Then make this day, your day of healing as you pray and meditate on the word of God that his promises will be fulfilled in the lives of those who are in need of God’s blessings this day.
