Let's start with this scripture. I have this one memorized. John 10:10 The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy, BUT, I came to give LIFE and that MORE ABUNDANTLY.
Or, I come to bring you the EXCESSIVE LIFE.
What falls into the category of stealing? If you lose your health. If your health was stolen from you. Who stole it? A thief! Thief, thief! Bring back my health! That's mine! Is stealing ever God's will?
Religious minds over the year, because they could not figure out why everyone wasn't getting healed, put on this holier than thou attitude and said, and I can hear the silly voice now. "It is not always God's will to heal, my son." What they are really saying is, I don't know how to get you healed, so I will tell you it's because it must not be God's will.
If you're not getting your healing, I can tell you why, and it has nothing to do with it's not God's will to heal. It is always God's will to heal. But, I'm getting ahead of myself. Going back to John 10:10 Who is the author of stealing, killing, and destroying? Bingo, you got it! Satan! So, if something falls in the category of stealing, killing or destroying, Satan, not God, is the cause of it. So, wouldn't it make sense to say that God would be against anything that Satan is doing? Wouldn't His will be the opposite of the devils will, or whoever is stealing, killing and destroying? That would make sense to me. Does that make sense to you?
Who whispers in your ear over and over? and it sounds like a nasally voice to me. *laughs* "You're never going to get healed. You're never going to get well. In FACT, (let's rub this in a little more, says the evil imp) you're going to get WORSE!
mahahahhahahahahah!!" Okay, maybe I got a little carried away, or, did I? I think that's really how they talk. They gloat over you to God, neener neener, Sally didn't get her healing. Whoo hooo, I tricked her into thinking she had to keep that cancer! I told her that God doesn't love her, and that it's not always God's will to heal. That she wasn't good enough to get healing. She's nothing. Why would God want to heal her? And on and on and on with his lies, he goes. And, yes I know what the enemy is saying, just as much as I know what God is saying. Have you noticed reading this, they are complete opposites? Whatever Satan is saying, turn it completely around, and wahla! you will have the will of God.
Let's look at say car accidents. What causes them? Let's look at the Christian who has a covenant of protection with God. God is my protector and it is always His will to protect me as I drive my car today, or while I am with another person and they are driving. And yes even if they are not a Christian or don't know about their rights as a Christian, I will still be protected while I am with them, and they will most likely be protected while I am with them too. Or say, on a airplane, I don't care if the pilot has been drinking and under normal circumstances might crash the plane. Not while I'm on it, he's not! Why? Because, of my covenant of protection with God. God has an obligation to protect me no matter what is happening around me or in the world. I don't care if a war is raging around me. The Bible says ten thousand will fall at my right, and a thousand may fall at my left, but it will not touch me. Why? Because I have a covenant of Protection with God, and He has to take care of me.
Someone says, but God can do anything He wants. He doesn't have to take care of you. Yes, He does. He has to keep His word or He will be a liar. And God is not a man so therefore cannot lie like a human. He made a covenant with Abraham to take care of His own. I can claim that covenant for myself, because I come from Abraham's loins, and the covenant was for all of His children and children’s children forever. And Abraham is my Father. God promised in Exodus, He promised, not to put sickness or disease on me. If He breaks that promise to His people, He would have to destroy Himself for lying.
What is the abundant life, or the excessive life? Is it abundant life to be sick? Is it abundant life for your body to be racked with pain? Is cancer the abundant life? Is diabetes? Is pain the abundant life? Are cramps the abundant life? Is being blind the abundant life? It's not???? OH wow! So, what does that mean then? It means that it must not be God's will!
So then, what is God's will, if that's not it? Well, didn't the Bible say we can have on earth what God's will is in heaven? Didn't He? He didn't? Are you sure? Can you back that up with scripture that it's not always God's will to heal me? I want to see a scripture that says I cannot be healed. That it's not "always" God's will to heal? Is that in the Bible? Um, not my Bible. That's religion. You won't find one scripture in the Bible to back that up. So, if you can't find any scripture to back up its not always Gods' will to heal, then where did that come from? How bout the devil? Of course. What better way to deceive mankind than to tell them repeat-ably that it's not always God's will to heal, and it would never be God's will to heal me. Shudder the thought. He is evil, evil evil! He wants to keep God's people, sick, busted, and broke, down, depressed, and sick in their minds. Of course he does. He can be stupid but the last thing he wants is for you and me to find out our rights!
I have a right to be healed! It's in my contract you dumb devil! What is the will of God? It's not some mysterious thing. God's will is His contract with me. Yep, betcha didn't know it was that simple. If healing is in my contract, than it's mine. Healing is the children’s bread. It's part of the Christians walk. Sure, I don't have a million scriptures here, but look at all the healing articles that have been sent to this list, and you will find tons of scripture that says the same thing I am saying here. It all agrees.
Okay, so what stops the healing of God, or why don't some Christians not get healed, if eerything I said is true? I have answers! I sure do. Not religious ones either. They aren't easy answers, and your flesh won't like it, but if you really want to know the truth and be healed, then suck it in soldier and let's apply the word to our life so we may be healed.
See, we have this shield of protection surrounding us, called the Word of God. Now, everyone sins from time to time, even me, even preachers. But, we have an advocate, or a lawyer with God, and we have the blood of Jesus that if we sin and repent,(repent means to change not just say your sorry, but really set yourself to change, making a constant conscious effort to change) then God will forgive us. I have this friend from Singapore who calls it "wiping the slate clean". That's what God does. He wipes the slate clean with the blood of Jesus, and it is like we never sinned. I wish people could do that as well sometimes. That is what true forgiveness is.
When sickness, or disease comes on me, I immediately as soon as even a sniffle comes, I go, "no you don't. I am healed by the stripes of Jesus, and this has to go in the name of Jesus." Sickness and disease, pressure, strife, lack, stress, etc are all the works of the enemy, and none of it has any place in my life. Period. No ifs ands or buts. None of this is the work of God, or ordained of God, or is ever used as a lesson. We have an enemy of our soul in this earth who is after our words, after our faith, after our health, after our protection, after our prosperity. Of course he wants you to fail! That's the devils job is make you fail. But, he has no power, except the power of deception. All he can do is try to get you to believe his lies that God won't heal you. But, would you accept a bag of snakes if I brought them to your house? Would you? Or you would get a shot gun and chase me off? *laughs* Okay well, maybe everyone wouldn't get a gun, but you get my point. So, why pray tell, are you letting sickness rule and reign in your life??? Kick it OUT already! OUT, OUT, OUT, GET OUT OF MY HOUSE. GET OUT OF MY BODY. GET OFF OF MY BODY. My body is the temple of the Holy Ghost! It is not the temple of sickness and disease! No way! There is no
sickness, disease, or lack in heaven, so why will we accept it on the earth? It's not any different. Make a decision today, to kick out everything of the enemy out of your life, and accept only those things that lead to edification, those things that are good, lovely, of a good report, and excessive abundant life. Amen!
Lord, I pray that the eyes of the understanding of the word come upon all who read this, in Jesus name. That their ears will be open to understand; that revelation knowledge will flow, and that the enemy will not steal this word from their heart, but that it will produce a hundred fold in their lives, in their minds, thoughts, and in their bodies.
Confession of faith:
I overcome sin with righteousness. I am the righteousness of God, in Christ Jesus. I think only the thoughts of God. I speak only the words of God. I overcome lack with prosperity. I overcome sickness and disease with health and healing in Jesus name. The name that is above all names. The name of Jesus is above the name of sickness and disease. The name of Jesus is over the name of "insert your problem here". All things not of God, bow your knees to the name of Jesus who is over all other names.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
