HEALTH MANAGEMENT-WHY BE SICK IF YOU DON'T HAVE TO?-99a
You have heard of Wealth Planning! Well! What about Health Planning? Let me just get right to it? Here is the million-dollar question. Is it really possible to never get sick and be healthy all the time? The answer I believe is yes.
First, lets face it; in the world we live in your chances of making it through this life without some life debilitating or threating disease are slim to none. Some this will happen to when they are young. Some this will happen to in the prime of their life. If you make it to your retirement years almost, nobody gets a pass. For some heart disease; cancer; Alzheimer’s and a host of other horrible diseases are reality or right around the corner.
Many of you know my testimony. I was deathly sick for ten years. I had at times 15 to 20 things wrong with me. I would throw up several times a day most days because of the horrible pain. I spent ten years in hell. Five for me and five for you. I prayed a dangerous prayer back in late, 2005 and asked God to “give me a vision of heaven or hell; to do whatever he needed to do to change me, only spare my life.”
He didn’t make me sick but he allowed this hell into my life so I could learn to depend on him for Divine Healing and the last five he opened up Divine Healing so I could teach others the Biblical Principles of Divine Healing.
Insurance Agents/Investment Brokers have an old saying and this is it! “Most people don’t plan to fail; they fail to plan. Now they are talking about money. I am talking about health. Many don’t have enough to take care of their financial needs in retirement and are forced to work. Most; nearly all; unless they heed this warning will come up short on the Health end. Now is the time to start putting that Healing Nest Egg aside.
God not only told me to teach on Divine Healing. How to you get free from a disease. He also told me to teach on Divine Health. How do you walk in Divine Health. To receive Divine Healing you have to know and understand and practice the Principles of Divine Healing To walk in Divine Health you will have to learn to defend your healing and your health.
If I remember this statistics correctly; there are the same percentage. Billy Graham said of those who came forward at his crusade only about 15 per cent actually got truly converted. In other words they walked it out.
Kathryn Kuhlman who had tremendous healing meetings in the 70’s said the same thing about her healing meetings. Of those who were healed only about 15 per cent retained their healing long term. The main reason I believe is obvious. If you don’t know how you get healed then how do you defend it. This may be the biggest potential disadvantage of getting healed at a crusade where someone is operating in the Gift of Healing. There is no instruction. The same could be said by a gift of the Spirit where there is a Word of Knowledge for instance “anyone with migraine headaches come forward right now and you will be healed.”
Some seem to be left alone by the devil and some are attacked. I do believe the devil is short-handed and cannot go after everyone. He makes rounds. He will get to you eventually if you are not prepared.
There is no bad way to be healed. I do not operate in the Gift of Healing but I stand strong in the Divine Promises of Healing that the Bible has. The advantage is I can teach you how to receive Divine Healing and then keep it and then walk in Divine Health.
I can’t prove in my own life the future. I am not 90 years old. I am 60. I have believed and seen God heal me 100s of times. I believe that will continue. There is no reason for it not to.
I am going through this last season of life with my Dad. Please know this I love my Dad with all my heart.. He has had some success in Divine Healing himself by following these principles from God’s Word. I have been able to believe with him and see some things happen. Some things were kept in check. Here is the mistake I believe he made and most make. They get a taste of Divine Healing and then just go back to their natural way of living instead of going after it. Lowell Lundstrom, the late evangelist once coined a term Fire scape evangelism. People will make a commitment to God when under extreme pressure and then when the pressure is off they go back to their Spiritual Couch Potato life. This is extremely dangerous and opens the door wide to the devil.
1. Here are some of the Healing Promises: They can be Life to your Flesh or just mere devotional thoughts
I Peter 2:24
“By whose stripes you were healed” (past accomplished fact)
III John 1:2
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers” (God wants you healthy)
“And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all”
(Any questions to the meaning of the Word ALL?)
“Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s”
***** ALL HIS BENEFITS) ********
2. Most who should Believe in Divine Healing and the Power of God have become Scoffers
2 Timothy 3:5(ESV)
5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.
This is something God just recently showed me that is a much bigger pool of people than in the past. This is an end-time prediction. Well here we are! People who say that believe in Divine Healing but really don’t believe in Divine Healing. First it was the Main Line churches now it is the Faith People; the Charismatics and the Pentecostals (they really don’t believe in it-Oh yes in theory but not reality)
(NOW I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO JUST DON’T KNOW HOW IT WORKS BUT ARE OPEN TO IT-I AM TALKING ABOUT SCOFFERS)
3. To Receive Divine Healing which is your Divine Benefit
When I need healing, I follow these three steps as a guide: I call it my Spiritual GPS. (Gates/Promises/Speak)
How do get into THE PRESCENCE OF GOD?
(PSALM 100 TELLS US THAT )
I Enter his gates (this is how you get in his presence) (This is how you get in and how I get in) In other words, I get myself into his presence (BY THESE ACTIONS) (I must have a covenant relationship with him-I must be born again)
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!
-I praise him and get into his presence
by Thanksgiving (thanking him)
and praising him with my singing to him)
and by blessing and adoring his name)
· You should commit some Promises to memory. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you.
· -Then I stand on the promise; I just shared some of the ones I use. You can find them on my Website in this week’s study guide or under the Divine Healing Tab. I get it in my mind and begin meditating-thinking on it (and then quote it out loud
· I keep paper copies: one in my car; one on my dresser, and one under my laptop. So, they are always available, and they are not out of sight out of mind but in my line of sight.
Hebrews 4:12 (KJV)
12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful
The Promises are an actual weapon-get to know your weapon-so when you need to use it you will be familiar with it.
-Then I speak to the mountain. The mountain is your problem. Here is where some make a mistake. They speak to God about their mountain instead of speaking to their mountain about God. Is it really that important you ask?
It’s the difference between victory and defeat! Let me just speak plainly. As weird as this may sound to you, it works. Now, at first, you may struggle with your unbelief. Keep at it and ask God to help you overcome your unbelief. Divine healing, at first, may seem like a marathon, but it will turn into a sprint, eventually.
23 Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.
24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
-That’s kind of weird; don’t you think, Scot?
-Jesus spoke to a fig tree. He spoke to diseases.
-Just begin doing it; it will work.
Whether its's a one time event or it takes a week or two: keep resisting it will flee!
Remember this: Bullies don't like to use us their energy on those who won't cave in.
4. To Defend Your Healing
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Do not cave in to doubt. If God healed you then you can bank on it that he wants you it to be permanent; but remember this Healing is gotten and maintained by Faith
-Keep Resisting the Devil he is a bully and he will give up and flee and go on to someone else. He will likely test you the hardest the first few times to see if he can break you!
5. To Walk in Divine Health
· Start small and safely with things like headaches or colds then if cancer comes knocking at your door you will be ready to take it on in the name of Jesus.
· Read my disclaimer
· Keep Living this as a lifestyle. Grow in it.
· Make the natural unnatural and the supernatural naturally.
· If I can do it you can do it. God is no Respecter of Persons
· Acts 10:34(ESV)
34 So Peter opened his mouth and said: “Truly I understand that God shows no partiality
