"Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus" (Heb. 3:1).

God's word is what you need to cause healing to manifest in your body. That is why you must keep God's Word in your mouth.

The word profession is a term that means confession, or words of your mouth. So that means then there is a high priest come for our words. And Jesus is the High Priest of our words. The high priest in the Old Testament took what it was, the lamb or the blood or whatever it was, and offered it up on a sacrifice before God.

There's a high priest over your words. His name is Jesus, or the anointed Jesus. He's come for your words—words that will stir up the gift that's in you.

The Scripture says to consider the high priest of our profession, the anointed one Jesus. Your words stir up the gift of healing on the inside of you. The words you should speak are the Gospel.

For example, your doctor tells you to take some pills three times a day. So you do it faithfully. Well, there's another kind of pill you ought to take along with the doctor's prescription. You need to take the "Gos-pill"—the good news pill.

You take "Gos-pills" by speaking God's word out of your mouth. Every morning I get up and I say what God says about my life and family. I say, "Thank you Father, I'm redeemed from the curse of the law, from poverty, sickness and spiritual death because Jesus has set me free. For sickness I have health, for poverty I have wealth, for eternal death I have eternal life. And he whom the son sets free is free indeed. I am indeed free in Jesus' name...."

Somebody says, "You're talking about mind over matter." This is not mind over matter, even though your mind will begin to think the way God says to think when you meditate the word of God.

No, I'm talking about stirring up the healing power on the inside of you. The word of God says in Proverbs 18:21 that death and life are in the power of the tongue. So keep the word of God on your tongue. Stir up the gift in you by speaking the word of God. Then Jesus, our Great High Priest, will take your words before God and cause healing to manifest in your body.

Scripture reference: Proverbs 18:21; Hebrews 4:14; 10:23
