You may have a runny nose. You may have aches all over. That is how you feel, but what are you going to say about it? Just think back to the last time you had a cold, or were sick. What was the first thing you wanted to do after you noticed the symptoms?

I have heard some folks say, "Pray for me, I'm taking the flu."

They've got it termed right, they are taking it. Satan offered it to them; he said, "You've got a runny nose, and a neck ache; now, let's see what you're going to say about it." Then most people will side in with the devil and begin to say the very thing he said. "I am taking a cold."

The Word says, " the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established" (2 Cor. 13:1).

God's Word is forever settled in heaven; it is already established there: "For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven" (Ps. 119:89).

The first thing most people do is to go tell wife or husband, "I believe I'm taking the flu." You have released faith in sickness. You have established the words of the enemy. And Jesus said you can have what you say (Mark 11:23).

The Word in essence, said the tongue will cause the healing power to stop. It will set on fire the wheels of lineage, or that which you have inherited. What you have inherited is natural healing power in your body.

Now don't misunderstand me. I am not talking about divine healing at this point, but the natural healing ability of the human body. Then all things being level, all things being right, and without Satan involved, any sickness that comes upon your body - your body will cast it off, and heal itself.

That healing ability is in your body. But Satan has come on the scene, and he distorts these things, and he has found out that his ability is limited to what he can get you to say.

Jesus said you can have what you say (Mark 11:23). Not many Christians know that, but Satan knows that, and he believes it. Just think back to the last time you had a cold, or were sick. What was the first thing you wanted to do after you noticed the symptoms?

You wanted to go tell somebody, "I'm sick." And you probably did. Then you began to get worse immediately if not sooner. Being unaware you activated a spiritual law that gave the authority you had to dominate your physical body over to the enemy. You established the words of the enemy instead of God's Word. You have openly proclaimed I AM SICK.

Health Covering Confession:
Jesus has redeemed me from the curse of the law. Therefore, I forbid any sickness or disease to come upon this body. Every disease germ and every virus that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus. Every organ and every tissue of this body function in the perfection to which God created it to function, and I forbid any malfunction in this body, in the name of Jesus!
(Gal. 3:13, Rom. 8:11, Gen. 1:31, Matt. 16:19)
