ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): 3 JOHN 1:2
SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S): Understanding the roots and foundation for Divine health and healing
The subject of health and healing is a much needed subject today
Especially as we approach the end of the time, there is such an explosion of afflictions so we need to know our root for establishment in Divine healing and health
Divine health is such a mystery to many
- There is a class of people that believe that healing passed with the last apostles but the Bible disproves this (Mal. 3:6; Heb. 13:8)
- The second class of people believe God heals only when He wishes to heal but that belief is not
consistent with Scripture (3 John 1:2; Matt. 8:2-3)
WHAT IS THE ROOT/FOUNDATION FOR OUR DIVINE HEALTH AND HEALING?
- Creation roots and foundation (Gen. 1:26-28; Ps. 8:1-5)
By creation roots, we can expect to be healed and whole
Man was created in the Image and Likeness of a sickless God
From everlasting to everlasting He is God – He is Ancient but not aged
Inside the system of man there is vitality; anything less than that is the image of fallen man.
- Covenant roots and foundation (Acts 3:25; Gal. 4:28; 3:13-14; Gen. 25:7-8; 35:28-29; 47:28)
Every child of God is connected to the Abrahamic covenant through Jesus Christ
Abraham was a rugged man – at 75, he left his father’s house, at almost 100 he led an army and defeated the armies of 5 nations, at over 120, he trekked up the mountain of Moriah, and bound up his teenage son. When Sarah died, at 140 Abraham was still vibrant enough to marry Keturah and have six other children.
Isaac was also very rugged also died at a very good old age.
On the grounds of the Abrahamic covenant you are entitled to strength, energy, and vitality
- Scriptural promises roots and foundation (Ex. 23:25-26; Ps. 107:20; Jer. 30:17; 17:14; Matt. 7:7; Ps. 84:11)
Scriptures abound from Genesis to Revelation that give us grounds to expect Divine health on the basis of our relationship with God
- Sonship roots and foundation (John 1:12; Rom. 10:17; 1John 3:2; 4:4; 5:4; Rom. 8:17)
Every child of God is a son of God like Jesus Christ (John 1:12)
The Son of God was a bundle of energy and vitality (Mark 8:2)
The same spiritual genetics that is in Jesus is in us – whatever He accessed by sonship we can access because we are joint heirs (Rom. 8:17)
You are the brother of a lion, don’t die of hunger! You are a brother of the eagle don’t die on the ground like a chicken!
- Redemption roots and foundation (Isa. 53:1-5; 52:14)
With every lash of the Roman whip on the body of Jesus, a class of affliction was wiped away.
God took our place in death so we can take His place in life; He took our sicknesses so that we can live in health
The cross is a crossover from death to life, sickness to health, poverty to wealth, and from affliction to prosperity
Knowing the truth is what can make you free (John 8:32)
Declare to the devil, ‘you can’t impose upon my life what my Saviour has carried for me!
HOW DO YOU ACCESS YOUR HERITAGE OF DIVINE HEALTH AND HEALING?
- There must be a mindset change (Prov. 23:7a; Rom. 12:1-2)
You cannot get scriptural proofs until the mind is renewed
Let nobody’s negative experience be a basis for your expectation
If you must see the proofs of God’s Word in your life, you must renew your mind
- There must be the possession of revelational light (John 1:5; Isa. 30:31)
It is the light of revelation that disarms the darkness of affliction
You can beat what was beating you with Light (Isa. 30:31)
Our triumph is rooted in fragrant insight (2Cor. 2:14)
Father, thank You for Your Word to us tonight. To You be all the glory Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
Father, in the name of Jesus, on the grounds of Creation, Covenant, Scripture, Sonship and Redemption, I receive my healing, I walk in health and I release life to others. Jesus was tortured and died so that I can have life, therefore everything Redemption has to offer me, I receive it now! Father, I receive the total package of Redemption for my healing and wholeness and I reject
every trace of affliction in my life NOW!
