Healing in Philippians

Part 51 of 67 in the series Healing in Every Book of the Bible. The entire teaching is available in PDF format on the Writings page.

Healing in Philippians

26For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness, because that ye had heard that he had been sick.
27For indeed he was sick nigh unto death: but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.

30Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me. (Philippians 2:26-27, 30)

Epaphroditus worked so hard in ministry that he disregarded his own health to help others.  While God wants us to have exactly such a heart, we must moderate our activity so as to not become sick and therefore of no use to the Lord.  We can see God’s desire for this balance in his mercy on Epaphroditus that led him into healing.

Healing in Ephesians

Part 50 of 67 in the series Healing in Every Book of the Bible. The entire teaching is available in PDF format on the Writings page.

Healing in Ephesians

16That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
17That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. (Ephesians 3:16-19)

You are strengthened by the Spirit in your inner man.  You are filled will all the fullness of God.  When you are strong and full of God, you are not sick.  This is God’s desire and provision for you.  And, it manifests through knowing as much as you can of the breadth, length, depth, and height of the love of Christ for you.

Intra Muros – A Visit to Heaven

Thursday, 26 Jun 2014 Leave a comment

Intra Muros, also known as My Dream of Heaven, is a book by Rebecca Ruter Springer about a lengthy and detailed vision she was given of heaven. In reality it was probably more of a visit than a vision. It was published in 1898. At the time of the vision, she was seriously ill or possibly even dead. She subsequently recovered or was resurrected.

I found out about this book from a mention by Andrew Wommack in one of his older teachings. It is by far the best and most detailed vision of heaven that I have ever encountered. Worth every minute of the time you spend reading it, and I am sure you will read it more than once. A PDF is freely available on Google Books.

Healing in Galatians

Wednesday, 25 Jun 2014 Leave a comment

Part 49 of 67 in the series Healing in Every Book of the Bible. The entire teaching is available in PDF format on the Writings page.

Healing in Galatians

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: (Galatians 3:13)

The curses of the law included all kinds of sickness (Deuteronomy 28:58-61).  Having been redeemed from such, we should be able to walk in health as we learn to receive all that the Lord has done for us in the sacrifice of Christ.

Healing in II Corinthians

Part 48 of 67 in the series Healing in Every Book of the Bible. The entire teaching is available in PDF format on the Writings page.

Healing in II Corinthians

18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. (II Corinthians 5:18-20)

Reconciliation is one of the greatest forms of healing.  Reconciliation with God is the most powerful form of reconciliation.  When deeply understood, not only is the spirit healed but the soul and the body are also healed.  The peace and love from reconciliation with God provides wholeness and healing to your entire being because God is love and the nature of the sacrifice of Christ.  Not only has God made reconciliation possible, it is His desire for all to be reconciled to Him and healed: “be ye reconciled to God” (II Peter 3:9, Titus 2:11, I Timothy 2:4).

Healing in I Corinthians

Healing in I Corinthians

7But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
(I Corinthians 12:7-11)

Gifts of healing are given by the Holy Spirit to individuals of the church.  Therefore, it is God’s desire for us to be well.

Healing in Romans

Part 46 of 67 in the series Healing in Every Book of the Bible. The entire teaching is available in PDF format on the Writings page.

Healing in Romans

1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:1-2)

Aside from salvation, one of the greatest restorations (healings) that can take place is the transformation that occurs from renewing our mind to progressively think and understand more like God does. Healing of your soul (mind, will, and emotions) through the Word is a beautiful gift from the Lord.

For another healing reference in Romans, see Romans 8:11 where the Spirit that lives in you as a Christian is said to “quicken your mortal bodies.”
