*For the next few days we are going to be exploring the area of healing.
In my last post I asked the question whether healing is simple or complicated. It is simple. In fact, it is so simple that our minds try to complicate it because it seems almost too good to be true. If the truth about divine healing and divine health comes to the surface, the pharmaceutical companies would be in trouble. God’s best for you is not to be on 12 different drugs and medications, but to be sustained by the Sprit of God. His best for you is to maintain your healing. That is also known as divine health.
Everything in our society is set up to accept the world’s way of thinking concerning healing and health. If you get sick, you go to the doctor or hospital. Then they prescribe a pill to get you well. Over the years it seems like medical science has just gotten us hooked on pharmaceutical drugs. There is a pill for everything. Headaches. Depression. Smoking. Unhappiness. The line is blurred more and more between what is a legal drug and an illegal drug. You don’t need these drugs, your heavenly Father can take care of you.
If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee. (Exodus 15:26)
So stop being like the Egyptians (the world system) and enter into the kingdom of God. God gave this promise to the Israelites in the Old Testament who did not even have Jesus. So how much more will he give us, who have the indwelling Spirit of God?
Make up your mind this day that you are going to renew your mind to divine health according to the kingdom of heaven. There is no sickness in heaven, therefore as legal resident of heaven it should be illegal for it to be on you.
Once you have made up your mind that sickness is illegal for the Christian believer, you can begin to access the tools that heaven has made available to you.
These 8 tools will activate your healing and allow you to maintain your healing. Now this is not a 8 step by step instruction guide to receive your healing, nor is it mandatory to do all 8 to get healed. It is simply 8 different ways you can be healed and maintain your healing. Any one of the 8 will work for you.
1. The Word of God- Speaking the Word of God releases healing
2. The ability to use the name of Jesus – “Anything you ask in my name,” John 14:14
3. The prayer of faith- the prayer of faith shall save the sick – James 5:15
4. Pleading the blood of Jesus
5. The power of the gifts of the Holy Spirit
6. The power in taking communion
7. A heavenly prayer language (tongues)
8. Congregating with other faith-filled Christians at Demonstrate It
