KEY SCRIPTURE: Romans 8:11 ” But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you”.
WHAT IS THE FOUNDATION FOR DIVINE HEALTH FOR THE CHRISTIAN?
We have been looking at divine healing in our previous studies. We would also consider the scriptural provisions for divine health. As we discussed in the very first study of our above topic we said divine health is a preservation of the health of an individual. This means the child of God is kept from getting sick in the first place. I believe this is a topic a lot of people would become very apprehensive about, because it is normal for most people to be getting sick and then seek for healing. 3rd John 2 reads “beloved I wish above all things, that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth”. To be in health is God’s desire for His children.
All men are sustained by their blood. Leviticus 17:11 says “For the life of the flesh is in the blood and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that maketh atonement”. The life of every flesh is in the blood. All humans born into this world live by the life provided by their blood……
When a man is born again something different happens to him or her. Every experience in the Christian can only be possessed by accepting the revelation God has made about it. The Christian is a biological miracle. According to John 1:12, 13 “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become sons of God, even to them that believed on His name. Which were born not by blood, or the will of the flesh or the will of man, but of God”. The Christian has received power to become a son of God. The word power also means ‘ability’. This has changed our state from mere men to divine beings, just like our master and Lord Jesus. (Romans 8:29)
Our new nature is very different from the kind of beings we used to be. It is not of human origin in any way.
- Not of blood
- Not of the will of flesh
- Not of the will of man
We have been born by God. God has become our father. This is a mystery. 2nd Corinthians 5:17 says “Therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold everything has become new”. Dear child of God you are a miracle. The apostle Paul revealed these truths in Galatians 2:20 as follows “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live: yet not I, but Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live in the FLESH, I live by the faith of the son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. TO BE CONTINUED.
I have received ability to be a son of God, born in the class of my Lord Jesus. I am sustained by the faith of Christ, who lives in me.
Psalms 82:5-6 “They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High”.
Romans 8:2 “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death”.
