Healing belongs to you! Jesus paid the price for your healing 2,000 years ago. So, why are so many of God's children sick? If your healing has manifested, how did you lose it?

Oftentimes, people who receive healing lose it along the way because of Satan's counter-attacks. If you don't know what to do when the attacks come, the sickness or disease will come back again, perhaps even worse than before. But if you are someone who has received a healing, then seemingly lost it, you're going to get it back, in the name of Jesus.

Want to Keep Your Healing?
Sin unconfessed, or unwillingness to obey God in any area opens the door for you to be attacked by sickness and disease. Sin means to miss the mark. God is against sin, not because He's against fun. God is against sin because sin will get you killed. You can't afford sin in your life. You have to get right with God and stay right with Him.

"If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land..." (Isa. 1:19).

In other words, you must be willing and obedient to God. You cannot live a life outside the will of God and expect to walk in His promises. If you are willing and obedient before God, and you will live a life before the Lord that is instructive of His Word, you'll find that the healing power of God will flow through you. That's not to say you're earning your healing, because you're not. What you're doing is maintaining what's available for you.

Deuteronomy 28:19-50 outlines the curse that comes along with disobedience to God. Oftentimes, the door is open for sickness and disease to come upon a Christian because of their disobedience to God. That is, unwillingness to follow His command about anything. When the Holy Ghost continues to work with you and work with you about a matter, and you will not obey Him, you remove yourself from the blessing side and place yourself onto the curse side.

This is one reason people die prematurely: They will not obey God. It's not the only reason, but it is one reason. Check yourself. Has God been dealing with you about doing something? Is there anything in your life that Satan can use to hang his hat on?

Your Body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost
"And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people" (2 Cor. 6:16).

The Holy Ghost is in you. You know the Holy Ghost is God, so your body is literally the church house on earth of the Holy Ghost. It is literally the temple of the Holy Ghost. The Lord shared some insight with me about the body being the temple of the Holy Ghost.

Do you think God wants a house that is broken down and not well taken care of? If you allow the body to have significant weight on it that it was not designed to carry, then it will begin to affect the beams of your body, the structure, which are your bones and limbs. At first it may carry it, but eventually it will suffer stress just like a roof. If you don't do anything for your body, if you will not "maintain" it, it will begin to break and tear.

The Holy Ghost said to me: "Everything that happens to a believer's body is not caused by the devil. The cause is that an individual has decided not to obey God in the area of his or her body." We are to glorify God in these bodies. We are to use these bodies properly and take care of them. You have to do something.

We know, scientifically, that exercise strengthens limbs and causes the body to function well in every way. We have an obligation to do some form of exercise with these bodies. God said that if we don't take care of the body, it will break down, and it won't be the devil who does it. So as long as nothing is done regarding the care of the body, a believer is in disobedience and won't be able to keep his or her healing.

First Timothy 4:8 reads, "For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come." Little in this verse means to profit a little while.

So when you exercise, it has profit to you, but its profit is not eternal. You have to exercise with some regularity in order to obey what God said about the body. So, you need to do something.

Keeping your healing has as much to do with what you do with your body and your faith as opposed to what God does. If you're severely overweight, you are breaking your body, killing it by breaking your bones.

Chill Out!
Another area that opens the door for sickness and disease is being in strife. Harmony brings about healing; strife opens the door for sickness. One of the prime reasons people get sick is because they get involved in so much turmoil, stress, strife, and fighting. They open the door for the enemy to take a good hit at them. You can't afford strife.

If you're in strife, fighting all the time, worried all the time, angered all the time, you need to learn to chill. Chill out. Do you know what overloads the body circuits? Strife, worries, and anger; so much of these will overload your circuits and blow your joints.

Receive Your Healing Today
"Yes, but Bishop you laid hands on me for me to receive my healing."

After you got up off the floor, what did you do? Did you go put some more poison cigarettes, alcohol, and the like in your body? Did you schedule time to exercise or did you remain a couch potato? Are you still fighting with everybody, or are you still worried and in fear and concern? If so, that explains why you haven't received your healing.

Today is your day for a miracle. Today is your day for healing. Today is your day for the power to go into your body and drive out whatever Satan has wrought. If Satan tries to bring the symptoms back, you say, "No, I do not receive them. I have been healed of them and I am the healed and not the sick."

The healing power of God is available to you as you read these pages. Tap into the healing anointing and receive, by faith, your healing. You're the healed, so act like it in Jesus' name. Glory to God!
