To all who have never enjoyed God’s abundant life.
The thing to know is that God is the Spirit of life. In Him, there is no death. Satan is the spirit of death, and in him, there is no life. God has given temporal life, and all are partakers that are born into this world. We breathe and enjoy the precious breath of life. Oh how beautiful life can be for those who do not have conflicting thoughts of doubt and despondency! How good it is, just to walk along the streets, or to ride along a country road, to see the beautiful meadows and the flowers, all living and very much alive with their fragrance and the personal ambitions imparted unto them by the hand of God; to have health flowing through your body with no conflicting thoughts of worry, no feelings of sickness moving through your body; your thoughts, racing through your spirit, bringing great joy.
Truly, it is well said by the writer that we draw water out of the wells of salvation with joy; to enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. The Bible tells us he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast, and a merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones. We are told by the writer that sorrow worketh death. Anyone can plainly see why the Bible teaches that serving God is joy, peace, and righteousness in the Holy Ghost. This is why faith in His written promises, in His unwavering, never failing Word, which is from everlasting to everlasting, which never changes, brings eternal life.
They are Words of inspiration and life, promises of hope and tender forgiveness, to let whosoever will, come. They are promises of healing to all. According to your faith, so be it unto you with no respect of person, but regarding all men as being the creation of God. We decide our own destiny.
How can a person enjoy a wholesome life? There is only one way. God has not given us the spirit of fear. We are not born with fear, but it is a demon spirit that comes into our spirit through the channel of unbelief in the Word of God and His promises that created us and preserves us unto life.
Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” It is up to us to use the negative side of life to develop a positive faith in God’s creative words. Just as our minds have a faith which is composed by our thoughts, so does the mind of Christ have the faith which was once delivered to the saints, as God gave them the mind of Christ. We must contend for the faith of Jesus Christ. Paul said, “We have the mind of Christ,” but we must give it freedom. Through this mind that is within our spirit or heart, God releases all that He has in His power through this mind into your body, such as salvation, healing, and so on. The kingdom of God is within us, so our healing is within us, just as our salvation is.
Paul said, “We are the body of Christ.” Many sleep because they fail to discern this. Jesus became your sick, tormented body in death on the cross that you might become His body that is completely free from all sin and disease. You do this by faith in the death of Christ, discerning that He took your place in death that you might become His body in life. When, by faith, you believe that He exchanged places with you, you are immediately healed. Always remember that your body, which was under the curse of the law of God’s judgment to Moses, was nailed to the cross, and since you are now the body of Christ, you are free from the curse by your faith in Jesus.
God’s covenant and all His promises are to the Lord Jesus. We receive them through faith in Jesus. By believing that we are the body of Christ, it makes the promises ours. Remember, our faith is intellectual thinking which we line up with God’s Word. God’s Word is the mind of Christ. Faith comes by hearing of the Word. Christ’s faith is a deep conviction in our heart or spirit. To believe we are saved or healed intellectually only means we are deceived and lost. It must be a conviction of the heart or spirit. With the heart, man believes unto righteousness, and as a man thinks in his heart, so he is. Jesus said, “If you could believe in your heart and doubt not, then you could have whatsoever you ask.” The heart will not believe sincerely unless it is convinced by your sincere devotion and your sincere efforts toward God. That is why faith without the stimulation of works is dead. Works revive your confidence in God’s grace to you.
Christ’s faith within you is freed from spiritual oppression when the five senses of your body (sight, taste, hearing, smell, and feeling) are dead through fasting or subjection. Satan has no way to work, if he has been cast out of you, except through your five senses to hinder your faith. Now that we understand this, let’s build up our faith by the hearing of the Word of His promises to us.
My God shall supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory. Remember, whether physically, financially, or spiritually, He will supply them all. I am the God that forgives all thine iniquities, and healeth all thy diseases. Notice, He said all! I will remove sickness from the midst of thee, or cast it out of thy spirit.
God is life, and all the attributes of life, such as healing, salvation, joy, peace, and prosperity, belong to the Spirit of life and the body of Christ, whose body you are. Jesus said, “I am come that you might have life.” To think like this is the mind and faith of Christ, through which freely flows the virtue. Shall He not, with Christ, freely give all things? Paul asked.
The spirit of Satan is death: God’s enemy. The Scriptures tell us that death came by man. The attributes of death are fear, grief, sorrow, worry, poverty, and sickness. These are all enemies to God. Christ came against all of these things: pestilence, tuberculosis, fever, inflammation, burning, botch, emerods, scab, itch, blindness, smiting in the knees and legs, and every sickness which is not written in the book of the law. You are redeemed from them. They were all under the curse of the law. You are under grace. Christ was made a curse for us. He redeemed us from the curse by His body on the tree.
Every sickness and disease known throughout the world was caused by sin. That sin was unbelief in God’s Word. Eve committed this sin. That which is not of faith is sin. Adam brought all men under the curse by unbelief. Christ redeemed all men from the curse by faith. In Adam, all die: in Christ, all are made alive.
He sent His Word (Jesus) and healed them. Faith in His Word makes the Word flesh. We become the Word, an epistle known and read of all men, the Word of God made flesh. We are one with the Word as the body of Christ. There is no sickness in God. By His stripes, you were healed.
You have the nature of Christ. They overcame Satan by the words of their testimony and the blood of the Lamb, the work of Calvary, confessing, in word and deed, what He has done for them. Lean not to thine own understanding, trust in the Lord (the Word) with all thy heart.
We must bring every thought into captivity to Christ, casting down imaginations, fears, and doubts, thus destroying the carnal mind that is enmity with God. God will not alter the thing that is gone out of His mouth. He will watch over His Word to perform it.
If, by His stripes you were healed, and He is no respecter of persons, and we are to call those things that are not as though they are (not living by sight: the just shall live by faith), then thy faith has made thee whole.
God tells us in His Word, “I would, above all things, that you prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.” Your health prosperity is governed by your soul prosperity. It is the Lord, thy God, that giveth thee the power to get riches. You should give the riches you have here to God’s service in exchange for eternal riches.
Believe (remember, a conviction of the heart) that your sickness is really and truly gone. It can never fail one time. You may make believe and stay sick and be damned, but if you really believe, it will control your body and compel it to works of righteousness and deeds of proof. God never leaves nor forsakes us. God never fails. We leave Him through unbelief. “Ask in faith, nothing wavering,” Jesus said. John said, “This is our confidence in Him: what we ask in His name, we receive. If our heart condemn us not, then we have confidence toward God.” Paul said, “I strive always to keep a conscience void of offense toward man and God.” “Everyone that asketh, receiveth,” the Scripture says. Jesus said, “Whatsoever you ask in My name, I will do it.” Jesus said to glorify the Father in heaven. Ask, that your joy may be full. He bore your sickness and grief in His body on the tree, and by His stripes, you were healed. Jesus said, “It is finished.” If He bore them in His body for you, then why bear them again because of Satan’s lies?
Remember, faith is a form of surrender of your thoughts and will to His. To believe His Word is a denial of your own thoughts and tired, melancholy feelings. To think positive thoughts of His promises will eradicate from your mind negative thoughts of defeat, and bring happiness, health, and prosperity your way. When you stop believing, it stops working. Always watch your thoughts and feelings. Be ye therefore transformed by the renewing of your mind. Stir up your pure mind, the mind of Christ, and prove that which is the good and acceptable will of the Lord. He is a high priest, touched by the feelings of our infirmities, interceding in your heart for you; the high priest of your confession.
With the heart, man believes unto righteousness. Confession is made unto salvation with the mouth. Confess, believe, and receive, and be made whole, in the name of Jesus Christ, from all your infirmities, sicknesses, and defeats. God bless you is my prayer.
