Divine healing and health for the whole man

Divine healing and health for the whole man

God original and perfect plan for man was his overall and perpetual health. Though this plan was altered when man sinned and became vulnerable to sickness, disease and death, it was reactivated through the vicarious death of Jesus,which redeemed humanity from sin, sickness and Satan. Now you can enjoy complete soundness of body,mind and soul when you acknowledge and accept the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, by confessing,asking for God forgiveness repenting of those sins, living your life for the Lord and obeying his health laws.

Unfortunate, many people have not this provision for divine health and wholeness, because of their willful rejection of the provision, sickness and disease ravage the world in spite of the ever increasing use of high cost of modern medicine. Even the few that accept Jesus in theirs lives still fall sick because of their lack of proper understanding of this provision. The Bible mention the following as the cause of ill health, even among believers in Christ.

1). Unhealthy habit– Genesis 1-29 and God said behold ,I have given you every herb bearing seed,which is upon the face of the of all the earth, and every tree in which is fruit of a tree yielding seed to you it shall be for meat.” But instead of taking grain, vegetable, fruit and nut we replace it with eating junk, frozen food and unhealthy fat. To enjoy divine healing and health we need to obey God health law. Proverb 4:20-22 let us read it.

2). unholy lifestyle – holiness keep keep you healthy but unholy lifestyle infects you with diseases. STD such as HIV is transmitted among human primarily through indiscriminate sex, in a flagrant disobedience to God holy command in Leviticus 18. If sex were limited to the marriage bed, the chances of catching such a disease would be infinitesimal

3). unhopeful mind – a mind that isn’t hopeful of having its desire met is depressed, un happy and unhealthy. But a hope full mind is happy, vibrant and healthy. Proverb13:12 say..hope deferred maketh the hearts sick: but when desire cometh, it is a tree of life.

I have been redeemed to live a sickness free life

4). unsettled home – if you re having issue with your spouse, children or in law. You’d have stress at home, and stress zap your concentration, make you irritable or depressed, and harms yours personal and professional relationship. Over time, it also weaken your immune system and makes you susceptible to a variety of ailments.

5). unhealthy habit – good hygiene promote sound health. If you want to minimize your risk of infection and enhance your overall health, therefore, you should brush and floss.,bath regularly, wash your hands, especially after toilet do your laundry,wear clean cloth and clean your house and your surrounding. Other wise you will pay regular visit to doctor.

6)unhappy disposition: the Bible say a merry heart does good like a medince: but a broken spirit drieth the bone. un happy disposition or sadness can hamper your health

Sadness can trigger stress,suppress the body immune system, leaving it more vulnerable to autoimmune disease like arthritis and multiple sclerosis

That can lead to a negative self image that in turn may leave the victim vulnerable to eating disorder like anorexia nervosa

And cause anxiety and low self esteem, which if not addressed may make sufferers through substance or suicidal behaviour.

As a child of God if we can follows and obey all this God health law,we will be able to have a divine healing and health.

I know that someone has been blessed tonight

I am going to stop here tonight but I know by his grace we may continue later in the future

The healing covenant

The healing covenant by pastor Johnson Adedoyin

The Healing Covenant , That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the Prophet saying Himself took our infirmities and Bare our sickness math8:17

If we trace from the old history of God’s dealing with man we will find out that healing is God’s will.

Our God is good and He has good plans for His children to live in good health.

We can buttress this point from 3.Jn1:2

3 John 1:2 KJV
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

There are 156 occurrences of the words heal, healer, healeth, healing and health in the bible

This covenant is a divine plan by which God heals all those who are in covenant relationship with him and keep them healthy.

Although God has an unfailingly healing and health plans for mankind yet there are people who because they have not come to the covenant relationship with God are not enjoying it.

He is called Jehovah’s Ropheka “I am the lord that healeth thee or I am the lord the healer. God made covenant with His chosen people ISRAEL in the old testament. He promised to keep the Israelites from the diseases by which the Egyptians were afflicted was made at the instance of the healing covenant.

Though, they were however required to obey and keep God’s commandments in order to enjoy this divine healing and health covenant.

This covenant is between two parties God and man and the covenant also has two parts, first, the condition, second, the promises or benefits to be claimed

When the conditions are met, the benefits naturally follows for He is a faithful God who is able to perform His promises

I have been redeemed to live a sickness free life

(1). Covenantee should diligently hearken to God’s voice.
(2). To do which is right in the sight of God
(3). To give ear to God’s commandments.
(4). To keep all His statutes
To serve the lord, these conditions apply to us today

We should also not neglect the basic value of hygiene when you did all these things.
God said:
Exodus 15:26 KJV
And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Exodus 23:25 KJV
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

Before we enjoy the covenant today
(1). We must have faith in God
Hebrews 6:12 KJV
That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 11:6 KJV
But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

(2). We must pray
Luke 18:1 KJV
And he spake a parable unto them to this end , that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
(3). We need to rightly appropriate the promises of healing covenant became the part of the new covenant “the covenant of grace” when it was instituted, all those who are born again are made partakers of the new testament “healing covenant” through Jesus’ death on the cross.

Isaiah took us back to the institution of the covenant

Isaiah 53:4-5 KJV
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. [5] But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Matthew 8:17 KJV
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

1 Peter 2:24 KJV
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Today our healing covenant is based upon better provision through the finished work of Christ at calvary – the covenant which God made with the Israelites is now made available to choose by everyone who believe in Christ.
