God’s People Must Disclaimer When They are Expressing an OPINION About Sickness and Not Biblical Truth (What God Says About It)

star-3802391_1920 (1)

If we are believing God for healing based on His Word, we must be very careful who we listen to and follow as far as teachers of the Word and even on social media. The church is filled with the opinions of man about sickness and healing that are unscriptural and often leading God’s people astray when one doesn’t get the Word rooted in oneself FOR oneself. The Word instructs us to test all that we are taught by searching the scriptures to MAKE SURE what we are being taught is His truth.

God’s people must stop looking to others to tell them what to believe but to look to God alone that He tells us what to believe.

I just feel so strongly from the Lord that we must speak very plainly and not tiptoe around the truth as too many of God’s people have been and are perishing for lack of knowledge. And a HUGE area the enemy brings confusion to, even deceiving the very elect, is regarding what God says about sickness and healing. Too many are easily being led astray about this.

As His children and representatives in the earth, we must take much better care with our handling of our words as to not mispresent God and His Holy truth. And His truth is that His children are called to hate all sickness because it’s of sin at its root – as in since the fall of man. Death came into the world THROUGH sin.

“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned,” (Romans 5:12).

Sickness is a form of death, is referred to by God as a curse, and oppression by the devil.

So why God’s own children seem to love to draw so much attention to sickness, in even a remotely positive way, is baffling.

Again, since sickness came into the world THROUGH sin. And sin and all the “grew” out of it – sickness, evil, death – is of the devil, why are God’s people so inclined to refer to sickness – a work of the devil as per God – as a blessing or something to thank God for? God says sickness is a curse (see Deuteronomy 28 – sickness falls under the “curses” category not the blessing category) and of the satanic oppression (Acts 10:38).

The Word and the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ clearly tells us how to both define sickness and what to do with it.

Sickness = a curse; satanic oppression; a work of the devil born through sin at the fall of man

Jesus says: Heal the sick, pray a prayer of faith so those who are sick may be healed, by My stripes, you were healed.

Nowhere does Jesus teach us under the New Covenant (what we are under now) to praise Him for sickness because He attributes it to a work of the devil.

Let’s create an example of some “bad doctrine speech” (unscriptural opinions of man) you can easily find on social media, so we can see how crazy it sounds when made plain and in line with the Word:

False doctrine example 1:

“I’d rather have this sickness in my body than _____.”

Sickness = a work of the devil according to God.

Translation: “I’d rather have this “work of the devil” in my body than ____.” I left a blank because I have heard a myriad of reasons for someone believing they need to punish themselves with sickness.

Jesus’ truth says: “I bore all the curse of the law on My body for you. The curse includes sickness, so I bore that sickness and punishment for you. I took your place. By My blood and My stripes (broken and torn up body), you were forgiven and healed (Isaiah 53; 1 Peter 2:24). By faith, you can exchange that sickness for what I purchased for you – healing. My finished work of the cross and My shed blood are not only big enough to heal you (and did) but are also big enough to deliver you from the sins you are struggling with (and did). My child, why do you insist on listening to a religious, demonic spirits and those influenced by them telling you that you need to be punished with sickness when I bore ALL punishment for you? When will you believe, like a little child, that my Word and grace are not too good to be true? That I am mighty to save? That I came to give you life and life more abundantly (John 10:10)? Let your faith meet my grace (undeserved favor and help) and receive healing from sickness and deliverance from sin. I command all My children to heal the sick not let My children suffer with sickness that I paid for healing for on My body. This includes you and my children around you.”

False doctrine example 2: “I praise God for this sickness He gave me to teach me a lesson.”

Translation: “I praise God for this “work of the devil” He gave me to teach me a lesson.”

Jesus’ truth says: “I came to destroy the works of the devil. The works of the devil are sin and everything that grew out of it – evil, sickness, death, etc. My kingdom has no agreement with the devil’s as a kingdom divided cannot stand. When some speak anything positive about sickness, they are speaking positive about its origin – sin and the devil. You see who the author of this confusion is – the devil – not I AM. I healed you with My stripes (1 Peter 2:24). Past tense. Receive you healing by faith. Stop punishing yourself – that’s religion. That’s why I rebuked the Pharisees. Accept what I already did for you. I know you think you don’t deserve it, but that’s My grace – paid in full for you. My love is so great you cannot fathom it – only believe Me.”

Christian’s who dote on and call sickness a blessing or anything at all positive are actually praising sin a work of the devil.

Think of it!

We must know the Word for ourselves, so we don’t fall victim to the influence of these religious demonic spirits that have even infiltrated the church.

God hates sin. Sickness entered the world through sin because of the devil (so if of the same root). The Word says we are to hate what God hates.

“He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil,” (1 John 3:8).

God hates the works of the devil and sent His son to destroy them. God doesn’t expect us to refer to a work of the devil – sickness – as a blessing, to praise Him for it, etc. His will is that sin and all that “grew” out of it be destroyed.

If someone does praise Him for sickness, they are expressing their personal opinion, not His Holy Words about it.

They are also disbelieving (unbelief):

By Jesus’ stripes, we were healed, that Jesus took all the curse for them, that they are under the new covenant of grace, and denying His very name – Healer (Jehovah Rapha).

Healing is not based on deserve but what on Jesus already did – grace. Receive it by faith. No buts.

Here’s an example in the Word of God of man expressing an opinion about God that is not of God nor His truth. He recorded this in His Word so that we can see they were just like us, saying opinions about God that are not His truth:

“But she said to them, “Do not call me Naomi; call me Mara, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me,” (Ruth 1:20).

The truth was God never told Naomi and her family to go to the godless land of Moab, a people group who hated the children of Israel and worshiped false gods. They chose to go there by their own free will and were met with much trouble and tragedy there.

Also His truth, Naomi couldn’t yet see it, the moment she decided to return to Bethlehem, “the house of bread,” God was setting her up for a redemption so great He recorded an entire book about it in His Word as a shadow (though an utterly beautiful one) of the ultimate redemption through Jesus Christ.

You can read my post here about Naomi and Ruth to better see how Naomi was merely expressing an opinion about God and His dealings with her and not His Words.

I pray this Holy Spirit led post blessed you.

Prayer

Father, I pray Your people know Your Word and truth regarding sickness and say what You say about it as to not lead others astray, and do what You told us to do about it – heal the sick – in Jesus’ name, amen.

The Marriage of Grace and Faith Births Answers to Prayers Based on the Expressed Will of God in His Word

faith and grace

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast,” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Jesus thank You for making a way for grace, for saving us from eternal punishment, and making a way for us to put our faith in You to receive eternal life by faith alone, not by anything we do or don’t do, lest anyone should boast, but by what You did, so we can boast in You alone, giving You ALL the credit and glory You deserve.

And through this same grace, we are able to boldly stand on Your Word and promises and receive them by faith, based on Your finished work of the cross and perfection alone.

Only believe – Jesus, Luke 8:50.

You purchased life and life more abundantly for us (John 10:10). The ability to use Your name and authority. And glory to You, Lord, to be indwelt by Your VERY Holy Spirit.

“Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your JOY may be full,” (John 16:24).

Hallelujah! We bless Your name, O God. You are worthy to receive all blessing and glory and honor and power forever.

Tenacity and Prayer

tenacity bw

tenacity – noun – The quality or fact of being able to grip something firmly; grip; very determined; the quality or fact of continuing to exist; persistence.

I have been seeing the word – TENACITY – over and over regarding prayer. Even in a book published in 1925. And remembering Elijah and the cloud as small as a man’s hand as the example of tenacity in prayer is so helpful.

It’s not what we see, it’s what God says and already sees because it’s His Word, we just keep praying (gripping and taking the Word, that IS Jesus, for ourselves) until WE see it too.

Elijah Prophesied and Prayed UNTIL God’s Will Came to Pass – 1 Kings 18

small cloud

1 Kings 18 is a great example of persisting in prayer based on knowing the Word and will of God – which we can today because we have 100% of His Word to know His will in many things.

So He tells us His will (His Word), and we pray and don’t give up until we see.

God tells Elijah: It’s going to rain. = God’s Word and expressed will was given to Elijah.

Elijah could either take God for His Word and will OR reject it for himself, not pray His will into the earth for it to rain.

What did Elijah do?

He took God for His Word, prophesied it, kept His eyes on God alone despite what he saw in the natural (longtime drought) and prayed until it came to pass. This is a beautiful picture of prayer, instructing us to do the same.

God’s will: .E.g. By Jesus’ stripes, we WERE healed, 1 Pet 2:24.

1 Kings 18 word

So we can prophesy the same over ourselves or loved ones AND pray until we SEE it come to pass in the natural, gripping what is in the spirit realm (God’s will), and pulling it into the natural realm through “praying and not giving up” prayer, based on the Word and will of the Father.

1 Kings 18:1; 41-46

18 And it came to pass after many days that the word of the Lord came to Elijah, in the third year, saying, “Go, present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the earth.”

1 Kings 18:41-46

41 Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.” 42 So Ahab went up to eat and drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; then he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees, 43 and said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea.”

So he went up and looked, and said, “There is nothing.” And seven times he said, “Go again.”

44 Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.’ ”

45 Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain. So Ahab rode away and went to Jezreel. 46 Then the hand of the Lord came upon Elijah; and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.

Praise God! His Word is given for our instruction out of His great love for us.

Our good Father does NOT leave us unequipped in the land of the living. We have His Word (will), His Holy Spirit and spiritual gifts, and the power of prayer to carry us through to victory in all things.

Psalm 34:19 – Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

Hallelujah! Glory to the Lamb who was slain. Who took our place!

Faith, Faith Comes by the Word of God, Healing, Miracles

The Substance for Our Faith for Miracles is Knowing This

the substance for your faith for miracles

There is a “Sovereignty of God” man-made doctrine in Christendom that is widely misused and is taught in such a way that God is random and picks and chooses whom to bless, whom to heal, according to some random, mysterious, unable-for-man-to-know will of His, etc.

But the Word says God is a God of order, and in His Sovereignty, He chose to bind Himself to His Word and promises and is not random at all. But it’s not what I say, or man says, it’s what God says.

What does God, our good Father, say?

~ “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him,” (1 John 5:14-15). ~

He wouldn’t say we can ask according to His will and not tell us what His will is. His Word shows us His will. E.g. “By His stripes we were healed (1 Peter 2:24).”; “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19),” and many, many more.

 ~”For You have magnified Your word above all Your name,” (Psalm 138:2). ~

This is a very powerful verse in all its glory and meaning. In His sovereignty, He chose to keep us more than clued in on His will. Not only that but He tells us He places His Word above His name in importance, so we can have confidence in it as a strong and absolutely sure foundation of our faith.

He’s not a willy-nilly God, but a come and seek Me in my Word and you CAN know my will God, and boldly expect to receive according to our faith in It. Not sorry, twist-the-sovereignty-of-God false teachers, God is not random, but good, giving us the greatest substance ever for our faith to bring forth His miracle working power, His Holy Word, full of His express and perfect will for us, His precious children.

~ “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints,” (1 Corinthians 14:33). ~

Thank You, Father, for not leaving us lost and confused without Your Word, and for exalting Your Word above Your name, a Word full of Your will and promises which are ALL yes and amen.

~ “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us,” (2 Corinthians 1:20). ~

This verse is an example of God’s will for ALL His children, not a select, random few. The devil is a liar. But we must believe and not doubt to receive His promises by faith. That’s where the TROUGH US comes in from 2 Corinthians 1:20 that you just read. Our entire walk with God is a faith one. Faith pleases Him and is how we receive His Word and promises for ourselves.

God isn’t sounding quite so random anymore is He?

That widespread, extreme sovereignty of God, man-made false doctrine is hopefully looking as false as it truly is by now, I pray. Again, in His Sovereignty, All Powerfulness, and Most Highly Ranked state in all the universe, He Himself CHOSE to work within His Word for His. He could have chosen to be random, left us without His Holy Word, but He chose to give us full instructions to live by and to KNOW His will.

We either take Him for His Word – we can know His will, ALL His promises are yes and amen OR we can reject His Word and will for ourselves which is what many do because they are ignorant of the Word that says, We are in a spiritual battle and must pray and not give up until we see.

prayer towards miracles

It’s those who persist in prayer, based on the sure foundation of the Word and will of God who see miracles.

So what is the substance for our faith for miracles? 

It’s knowing God’s Word for ourselves in a revelatory way by the Holy Spirit and thus knowing His will. God’s Word makes His will very clear on much with the exception of future plans for each individual.

BUT, we CAN seek Him, surrender our plans into His hands, ask for wisdom and direction and trust Him to direct our steps. Yes, we can ignore Him and His warnings and go our own way too, but we don’t have to.

Read my post, Be a Caleb – What giants? I don’t see any giants?, for an example of how because we have free will, we can reject God’s Word and will for ourselves through unbelief and how God sees rejecting His Word as rejecting Him because He is His Word. He loves us no matter what, of course but lets us choose His will or not.

I pray this post blessed you, and if so, please comment, like, and share. All glory to the Holy Spirit for teaching me and leading me into all truth regarding what I shared.
