“Christ is the Good Physician. There is no disease He cannot heal; no sin He cannot remove; no trouble He cannot help. He is the Balm of Gilead, the Great Physician who has never yet failed to heal all the spiritual maladies of every soul that has come unto Him in faith and prayer.” – James H. Aughey
The Lord HAS HEALED YOU He IS Jehovah Rapha
To put it bluntly, you aren’t really sick… you are HEALED. You say though, “How can this be, seeing as I have a runny nose, a cough, a fever?” Yes, your body may be showing signs of illness, but if you have received Christ into your heart and are walking in the spiritual belief that you have now possessed life eternal with Him, let me tell you… YOU AREN’T SICK. As long as your spirit is NOT sick, you are NOT sick! So… is your spirit sick?
What is “spiritual sickness”? Spiritual sickness is a “disease” in which you are plagued with having no knowledge of God whatsoever. Spiritually sick people have no understanding of Him or His Word, no expectation for eternal salvation, and can sometimes have an even worse malady having once experienced God and His loving kindness then turning their backs on Him. There is a spiritual sickness that can never be remedied, and that is the denial of the Holy Spirit, these sad men and women who deny the Holy Spirit have a terminal spiritual sickness, for they first need to recognize HIM and His deity in order to be saved.
Spiritually sick people are truly SICK. Colds, blood pressure, cancers, ulcers, any and all physical maladies will eventually pass away with your body when your does. Your spirit once saved will journey on to the Father upon entrance into heaven TOTALLY WHOLE! Your spirit in your body is TOTALLY WHOLE now! Understanding your spiritual wellness is paramount to your living comfortably here on Earth, you are WHOLE in spirit, totally complete and lacking NOTHING! Now let’s get that “body” to line up with what has already occurred in your spirit!
YOUR BODY MUST LINE UP
If there was any one secret to Christianity (which there are NO secrets for those who believe in Him, the Word says it is “made for us” to know these things Luke 8:10) it would be that your physical circumstances MUST line up with the Word of God PERIOD.
If you read in the Bible “Thou shalt not steal” and you decide that it is wise to follow these words- than you will condition your body to decide that stealing is WRONG. You in turn will no longer steal. What has happened? Your spirit has received the Word of God, your mind has comprehended the Word to be TRUE and thus your body responded accordingly. Next time that you are hungry you will not steal your meal, you will instead desire to stand in FAITH for your need to be fed to manifest, great job!
The SAME is true in order for your physical healing in to be made manifest. First, you have to feed your spirit the Word of God in regards to healing, what does the WORD say? SECOND, you have to believe with your mind and receive His Word to be true, that it IS possible to be healed and it IS the will of the Lord (Jehovah Rapha’) to heal you. Thirdly, you must remain in the frame of mind that your body IS responding to your spiritual treatment!
Now, Doctors can absolutely aid in your physical healing manifestation… but NO Doctor can aid in your spiritual healing – NO DOCTOR CAN READ THE WORD FOR YOU! They might be able to read the Word TO you, but no one person can read the Word FOR you, and no one persona can receive the power of God through a personal salvation BUT you. You have to decide for yourself to live by the spirit. So what do you decide? SICKNESS or HEALTH?
“Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.” Luke 4:40
