KEY SCRIPTURE: 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.”
We continue with our study on the biblical foundation for divine health.
The apostle Paul said in “Galatians 2:20, I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth 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”.
The apostle is saying over here that, the life of his flesh is no more by his natural ability but now by the Spirit of Christ.
Dear child of God our Lord Jesus died in our name, and so we died with Him. When He resurrected, He rose with a new life. (Romans 5:5). The life of our flesh is the Spirit of Christ. Romans 8:10 says “And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is live because of righteousness”. The Christian does not live by his flesh. He is a spiritual person. The spirit of Christ is the one who leads and controls the Christian. In verse 11, the scripture added that “if the Spirit of Him that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He that raised Christ from the dead shall vitalise your mortal bodies”. When we were not born again we were controlled by our flesh. After our new birth we are no more controlled by our flesh but by the Spirit of Christ. In the verse 11 the Bible added that this Spirit of Christ who has become our new personality gives life to our bodies which has the tendency to die (mortal). *
Now by faith * the body of every Christian has a supernatural life.
This is why the apostle Paul said the life He lives in the flesh he lives by the faith of the Son of God. (Please note: this can only be experienced by those who know and believe it) if you do not know and believe this teaching of scripture you will not experience it.
Do you remember that the Lord Jesus said that these signs would accompany them that BELIEVE, according to Mark 16:17 “And these signs shall follow them that believe, In my name shall they cast out devils: they shall speak with new tongues they shall take up serpents, and if they drink deadly things it shall not hurt them; they shall lay their hands on the sick and they shall recover”. This verse is not a promise, it is only stating the identification mark of the believer: He said if they are to take any deadly thing it shall not hurt them. This includes, poison, bacteria, virus, bad chemical in the air etc.: they have no power over your vitalised flesh.
My flesh has been vitalised by the Spirit of Christ in me. No sickness can live in me.
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”.
1 Peter 2:24 ” 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”.
