ARE you living in unforgiveness? Are you bitter and resentful toward others who may have hurt you? Or do you have a medical condition that has been ongoing or unexplainable?
Many people are facing death daily or are very sick spiritually, emotionally or physically.
Man is made up of three parts to their bodies: spirit, soul and body.
The spiritual faculty of an individual has to be connected to God to develop; the soul faculty is made up of an intellect, will, and emotion and needs education to develop.
The body is made of flesh and blood and is built with proper dieting.
The two faculties that are housed in the body are the spirit and the soul, which will live forever either in hell or heaven after the body perishes.
“To develop the spiritual faculty, you eat the word of God which is the Bible. Then prayer, fellowship, and sharing your testimony with others.”
There are many reasons why the rate of sicknesses and diseases are increasing without any cure being found in the nations around the world, including PNG.
The first and the foremost is that we must give priority to develop our spiritual faculty.
But man has only developed the body and the soul faculty and there is disorder in our life style.
Let us align ourselves with the word of God from the Bible:
“Praise the LORD, my soul, and don’t forget all his benefits; who forgives all your sins; who heals all your diseases; who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies; who satisfies your desire with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:2-5.
“And when you stand praying, forgive, if you ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” Mark 11: 25.
“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will heal him who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective.” James 5:14-16
“Now I forgive whomever you forgive anything. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ, that no advantage may be gained over us by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his scheme.” 2 Corinthians 2:10-11
“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” Malachi 4:5-6.
Family members must repent of their negligence in forsaking their responsibilities.
Fathers must ask God to forgive them as well as sons, daughters and mothers. The word of God above says that you must ask the Lord God to forgive your sins, as well as others to forgive you, and then the Lord God will forgive your sins and heal your sickness, diseases and restore your blessings.
Why carrying your heavy loads of sicknesses, diseases and burdens instead of releasing them to God:
“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
“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 you were healed.” 1Peter 2:24
“Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Mathew 11:28-30.
Today call upon the Name of the LORD Jesus and be Saved, Healed, Delivered, Restored and Revived!!
“… That if you will confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 1:12-13.
Song: Our righteousness shine like the sun and our salvation like a blazing torch. We will rise up and shine with healing in our wings to display the splendor of our King!
