The Source of Holistic Health

UV 1737/10000 The Source of Holistic Health
And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.
Deuteronomy 7 v 15
What we proclaim in faith with our mouths, we claim. This uni-verse is an assurance of good health. The Lord Jesus took away our sin by His sacrificial death while He took away our sickness or diseases with His wounds. By His wounds, we are healed of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual disease. The word “ disease” means absence of ease or peace. When we do not have peace with God, we come under the shadow of disease. To protect us from disease and sickness is part of the important covenant promises of the Lord. We must constantly place a shield of faith against all known and unknown diseases. The Word or Christ is like a gigantic mushroom under which we can take shelter where no insects or pests can attack. Ironically, the sign or logo of healing, the serpent lifted on a staff- on the boards of pharmaceutical stores around the world is a symbol of the healing power of Jesus. Everything physical has a curse or limitation of disease in it. That limitation is broken or lifted up and destroyed by Jesus. Similarly, every limitation or sickness or disease is broken as we lift ourselves up in faith and proclaim the Word of healing and power.

We must always confess positively that we are blessed with good health, one of the greatest of the blessings of the Lord. We must not call sickness or invite disease to us by confessing negatively that we are sick or tired or weak. Then, the Lord will allow none of the deadly diseases that remind us of our past bondage to the world. “Egypt” is a metaphor for that bondage and the reference is to the plagues of various diseases that afflicted Egypt as Pharaoh hardened his heart against the expressed will of God to “ let My people go.” The Lord is our Freedom Fighter. He is our healer. He sets us free of death, disease and every bondage of sin. The Lord Himself is the Balm of Gilead that heals us and removes our pain.

Those who are unrepentantly cruel, oppressive and wicked are marked by the Lord. Different organs in their bodies are marked for affliction in accordance with their words and deeds. As we sow, we reap and as they sow, they reap. They sow evil in their flesh and spirit and consequently reap the ills and afflictions of spirit, mind and body. But we shall not be found wanting in any aspect of holistic health. The word says that our bones will flourish like herbs, implying that the resurrection power of Jesus is at work in the innermost core of our bodies where bone meets marrow as well as in the innermost core of our spirit and minds. The bone marrow produces RBCs or Red Blood Corpuscles that is responsible for transporting oxygen to all parts of our bodies. Every twenty four hours the bone marrow produces millions of RBCs to replace the dying ones. Similarly, the Resurrection Blood Corpuscles or RBCs of Jesus heals us all the time, preserves us and protects us against all manner of disease. The “Resurrection Blood Corpuscles of Christ” will invigorate our spirit, minds and bodies. Our anointing of health is not from external sources but does a deep and lasting work inside us.
