Today I want to talk about the victory that we have in Christ.
Yes many have been taught and they agree that sickness is normal as well as death.
Oh no! When Jesus died on the cross, He took it all there, all manner of sicknesses, in fact 39 strokes of canes He received, that scientifically speaking there are 39 major diseases on earth, so every single stripe He received healed one disease and so they were 39 thus all sicknesses are healed in Jesus name. He took it all.
Oh, that people could believe this word, oh that people could understand why Jesus came.
Jesus is a life giving Spirit. The first Adam came and he was a living being, but when the last Adam came, Jesus, the living son of God, He became a life giving spirit. Them that believe Jesus and hear His word and practice that word because the word too is life and it is God in that word, then they will have everlasting life. They shall not come into judgment but have passed from death into life! What a wonderful word and promise it is to us that believe!
We as His children bear the Lord's image, the man who came from heaven, Jesus the son of our living God has given us life and life in abundance.
When you are given abundant life that means being given more than enough, in plenty. Oh, if only people could know this word and start declaring that in their lives then sickness will not be their portion, death will not be in their mouths. The Bible says that my people perish because of lack of knowledge. The word of God is knowledge and wisdom, if you know the word, then you got knowledge, you will be talking of the truthfulness of our Lord.
As we bear His own image then we so look like Jesus. And if we look like Jesus, then we must walk as Jesus walks, we must do as Jesus does, we bear His image.
Jesus doesn't get sick, so we are also not supposed to get sick. The Bible says that the sting of death is sin and the strength of sin is the law.
So sin is what makes most of us sick and so sickness takes advantage of that and we become unbelieving to what the word of God says.
But thanks to our God who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Death has been swallowed in victory!
By His stripes we are healed! That is the word of God, we either believe it and receive it or we donít and continue in torment of sicknesses and diseases. Jesus is our healer, that is what He did on that rugged tree. It doesnít matter what you might be going through, but Jesus is well able. Nothing is impossible with God and to those who believe in Christ Jesus, they shall receive plenty of His blessings in Him.
Above all, lets be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of our Lord, knowing that our labor is not in vain in the Lord.
Be blessed and may you have life in abundance in Him.

There are so many things we can't understand about God's plan. We will know some day why God has allowed suffering in His saints. I personally don't believe that it is due to lack of faith. He has many reasons. An example of suffering, and going through pain and humiliation, is Job. How would one explain that? Job! The most righteous man that God could find at that time.....Question, Questions, Questions...The rest I said in an email, Justus...God bless and keep you...Helen
