Healing By Miracle Or Medicine

No one wants to be sick, yet today there are many millions who are and their colour, race or social standing was not the deciding factor.

The Holy Spirit wants to heal, but before the healing takes place, the mind has to be at the place of embracing the Healer, the healing and the method. God can use or allow medicine, nutrition or miracles to do so, and He can and will often do it in unorthodox ways – ways that defy and challenge logic. Sadly, there are many who die because they refuse to change their mindset about healing – even Christian leaders who are supposed to believe in the power of God.

We will want to discredit God’s power while ignoring several scriptures in the Bible (Matthew 16: 17-18). Interestingly, the major part of Jesus’ ministry dealt with healing and that was why He became famous.

Every sickness has a root and that root is spiritual. Infirmity is a spirit (or a curse) and there are many diseases and illnesses that fall under the umbrella of infirmity. There may be lack of certain things within the body which may cause a sickness. In the Bible, God uses different methods to bring healing to different persons including medicine – herbs and natural extracts. He also used doctors and His servants with the gift of healing to heal different people (1 Corinthians 12: 9; 2 Kings 20: 1 – 11; Isaiah 38: 1-8). In the same way, we go to the doctor and he checks into our family’s medical history. There are many sicknesses that may come down through the lineage based on the sins committed by our foreparents – including sexual sins, witchcraft or injustice. That is why it is key for Christian medical doctors who understand this to rise up. You cannot medicate a spiritual problem, nor can you give complete help if all areas are not addressed.

Many may say, “He is not a doctor, he can’t talk about healing!” But that is the problem in the world today. Interestingly, Isaiah the Prophet did not study medicine, he studied what we would call international relations. When the king Hezekiah was about to die from his illness, the king began to pray and seek God, refusing to accept the fate of death. The prophet directed the king to apply poultice of figs which many medical scholars today say is an antibiotic. We also see again in 2 Kings 5: 1-15, a mighty and great commander who had leprosy. Leprosy today is known as Hansen’s disease, which is a long-lasting infection caused by bacteria which affects the skin, eyes and nervous system. Hansen’s disease is treated with a combination of antibiotics. Typically, two or three antibiotics are used at the same time. In the Bible, God gave His prophet an instruction/prescription for this great commander – to go and dip seven times in the muddy Jordan River. What would the medical scholars and intellectuals of today say about that in response? Maybe they would say that the prophet of God had a psychotic disorder and needs Zyprexa, Rexulti or maybe even some Abilify. Others who would receive that instruction, based on their status (and level of pride), would probably think it a foolish instruction, walk away and find a way to fly out for treatment, since they don’t even have confidence in their local health system. Naaman himself thought it was nonsense when the maid told him the instruction was from the prophet of God. Nevertheless, he obeyed the instruction.

Sometimes, the place the Lord is sending you has exactly what you need for your healing, even if you don’t see or understand it. What if the state of the muddy river had the properties necessary to fight the bacteria affecting his skin and body?

Following Divine instructions and having an open mind to the things of God is the key for your healing. You may be directed to go on a three-day fast for God to give you instructions, or you may be instructed to go and show yourself to the priest (Luke 17: 12-14), who will anoint you with oil and pray for your recovery.

Something as simple as forgiveness or taking communion, being anointed with oil by God’s anointed servant, changing your diet and an understanding of herbs and their uses can bring healing.

There are many within the society today suffering from various illnesses – some are even afraid to confide in family members. The question is, what are you willing to do to be healed?

Remove Taxes From All Medical Equipment

Nobody likes or wants to be sick, but as life happens – and technology and global pollution increase – things get more difficult, stress intensifies and our health comes under great attack from all angles.

The question is, are all parties in the health industry – especially pharmacologists and research scientists – more interested in treating rather than curing?

Health services are among the most lucrative industries, and the most political. In fact, this is an issue I have been speaking on for years. Even prophecies God has given to help individuals and nations, as well as His recommendations, have been ignored.

At the rate we are going, only the rich will be able to be offered health care.




God wants us to be healed more than we desire to be healed; so much so, that while Christ was on earth, it was his number one ministry.

“When the sun was setting, all those who had any that were sick with various diseases brought them to Him, and He laid His hands on every one of them and healed them.” (Luke 4: 40)

He even commanded the Church to ensure that healing be their number one priority (Mark 16: 18; Luke 9:1). God even gives the gift of healing to individuals for them to administer to those who are sick. He created plants, leaves and herbs for mankind’s health.

With the amount of money each person spends during his/her lifetime to deal with the common cold alone, they could make Forbes’ list of billionaires. The greatest wealth transfer from the rich to the poor is in the area of health – and this is the area wherein God wants to do His greatest work. This is why the Church should no longer be afraid of the media, theologians, the medical sector and heretics to carry out the healing ministry.

The very symbol used in the global medical field – the two serpents and the rod – is inspired by Numbers 21 and John 8: 36. Further to this, it was Jesus who died for us to receive healing.

Healing is not for the logical. You can be given several instructions -like Naaman received to dip seven times; or like the woman who was operating in a broken health system, but was forced to change her mindset in order to receive her healing as she put her faith totally in God.

MANY WAYS TO BE HEALED

There are many ways God can heal us – through surgery, advice of medical doctors, through the laying on of hands by praying elders and mothers in the church (James 5: 13- 8). God can allow medicine to be used, He can heal you supernaturally; He can use bushes and plants (II Kings 20); He can instruct us to fast for healing – three-day or seven-day fasting. We can be healed by giving to the poor. Many doctors speak about the power and benefits of fasting. However, consult your doctor before engaging in a fast.

Additionally, you can anoint yourself with oil – as is found in Exodus 15: 26. God promises physical, emotional and spiritual healing. One of His names is Jehovah Rophe, which means ‘God is our Healer’. You can also receive your healing as you forgive! Wherever the greatest problem lies is where the greatest solution will be found.




Revelation 22: 1-2 and Ezekiel 47: 12 let us know that the fruits and leaves of the tree are for the healing of nations. The Caribbean, Africa and other poorer nations need to open their eyes and begin to put plans in place – building labs, engage in increased agriculture, acquire machines, remove taxes from all medical equipment which will create many jobs for the regions. There will be great regret if we don’t put these in place.

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal regarding good health and well-being is one which countries need to work on achieving, which will ultimately make a positive contribution to poverty eradication.

Steve Lyston | ZIKV: Man-Made Or Apocalyptic?

pixabay-bb4b3acd9f294e415e-copy

Growing up in the country, we had a lot of mosquitoes. The biggest issue that would occur from that was dengue fever. Today, the mosquito has become one of the most dangerous and deadliest insects and could be labelled one of the biggest terrorists in existence. The World Health Organization, (WHO) says that more than one million people die each year as a result of mosquito bites loaded with diseases. They have quietly become more dangerous to humankind than ISIS and Boko Haram.

Now, if knowledge has increased and we now have better technology than in the past and brighter scientists – then why are we having more people dying? Is it a man-made disease or an experiment gone wrong? Is it designed to make millions in the pharmaceutical industry and insurance industry and among many doctors and scientists? Could it be that while knowledge has increased, wisdom has not? In order to get real wisdom, there must be a fear of God. Today, there are many who think they know more than God, or are they smoking too much marijuana?

There are many questions being asked regarding the ZIKV. Is it a man made disease to control the birth rate while bringing greater riches to a few? Why is it that when diseases break out, it always affects the Latin, African and Caribbean countries more than any other? Many also wonder if ZIKV was designed to promote abortion or to restrict the movement of persons from one country to the next.




SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE

When diseases like ZIKV break out and many are told not to have children or get pregnant (and some religions don’t use contraceptives, and keeping in mind that God has a timing for some children to be born), is it a conspiracy to stop the births as in the book of Exodus when the enemy wanted to ensure no deliverer would be born? Or is it a sign as in Exodus 9: 14 – 16? God used the overrun of insects and animals to punish the Egyptians and the Pharaohs to release His people from oppression and bondage. Now we see the same thing happening today, where one per cent of the people have the wealth. Furthermore, the people were no longer faithful to the true and living God – their gods had become ISIS, OSIRIS, SETH, and HORUS.

Many are of the view that wealthier countries will starve the other nations of food, medication and even grants unless they comply to their immoral policies and agendas.

There are those who are of the view that ZIKV is an apocalyptic fulfillment as in Luke 21: 11 and Revelation 5 and 6 – part of the seal that would be broken in the end time or the beginning of the seventh and last plague in Revelation 15.

I have always said that where there are diseases and disasters, there are always opportunities that can come about. The church can rise up by utilizing the healing ministry to combat some of these diseases. This will be what we call a ‘wealth transfer’. It was not God’s intention for pharmaceutical and insurance companies to suck the blood of the poor – much like the mosquitoes.

God left a healing ministry for the Church to carry on (Matthew 9: 35; Mark 3: 10 Luke 9:1, Matthew 24), and furthermore, there are many natural bushes that can be used as a repellent; eating garlic, eating apples, cucumber and other herbs that can help to strengthen us. Most of the foods we are eating are toxic. Some of the fertilizers are destroying our cells and the very fiber of our bodies. This could be the call for many of the poorer countries being affected to return to our organic ways of growing and preparing our foods – which also can result in improvement in the area of export for these nations.




Most of the drugs that many are taking are destroying the immune system, hence their resistance is low.

The wealthier countries also have the opportunity to build more labs and help to set up more clinics and to give grants without strings attached.

Stop eradicating the bats and certain fishes that help to control the mosquito population. Most of the people who engage in this, are ultimately destroying the natural habitats and the environment on the premise of economic development. We cannot allow greed to destroy life. Our lives matter!

HEALING REQUIRES FAITH NOT LOGIC

REJECTION HINDERS TRUE POTENTIAL

pixabay-2c0263b56d66d288

Rejection starts from the womb. IT is one of the greatest hindrances to the true potential to individuals and ultimately to nations.

Simply put, ‘rejection’ means ‘to refuse to accept, acknowledge, use, believe; to throw out as useless or worthless; discard; to rebuff (a person).’

Many mothers, during pregnancy, experienced rejection in many forms, which became so much a part of them – their mindset and as a result was ultimately passed on to the child; either during pregnancy or at birth. Some women were abandoned or abused during pregnancy, raped and became pregnant.




Psalms 139: 14, Luke 1: 44 and Jeremiah 1: 5 shows us that when the child is in the womb, in fact from the moment of conception, they have a spiritual identity. As a result, hearing, feeling, smelling, emotions, thought patterns are developed during pregnancy and even their assignments are ‘downloaded’ during this time! They can hear sounds, they respond to the emotions of their mothers and to the voices of their fathers!

So what happens during pregnancy to the mother directly affects the child she carries and it is embedded in the development of the child.

When a woman becomes pregnant and is rejected by the father of the child she carries, double damage takes place! The mother becomes fearful, disappointed, bitter, desperate, and feels betrayed and alone. This culmination of negative emotions becomes the root of rejection that both mother and child.

Sometimes rejection comes from mother to child when the child is the exact image of his/her father who abused or rejected the mother. Further to that, rejection increases when the father rejects the child and deems the child a jacket while he fully embraces other children. Then it is further increased when that same child attempts to reach out to that father for love, affection and acceptance, and is ignored – rejected! So it becomes an issue throughout their entire life and the cycle continues.

Rejection damages the soul and no medication can fix it! However, Psalms 23: 3 tells us of the healing that is there for the soul – “. . . He restoreth my soul . . .”, and it is when the soul is healed that true peace and prosperity will come.

Negative Words

Negative words contribute greatly to rejection. Proverbs 18: 21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue . . .” Words stick and often carry through to adulthood. Some persons would say that it is better if you hit them than curse them. So when, for example, influential persons in a child’s life – parents, teachers, other adults – call the children dunce, fat, ugly or worthless, and then declare prison and death on their own children it carries through with them unless it is broken.




Clearly if we are going to deal with crime, we need to understand rejection.
VIP’s And Politicians

Many of our public officials suffer from rejection. The nation cannot be truly healed until they are healed. Some of them have never been told by any one that they are loved. Some never had the love of a father expressed to them and their trust has been betrayed. That is why some of them play so tough and cold – they hide behind a mask.
A person who suffers from rejection will always be defensive, have low self-esteem and untrusting. Such persons don’t allow anyone to get close to them.

Rejection is a stronghold, and behind every stronghold is a form of bondage. Behind every lie there is a fear. Behind every fear there is an idol. Until we deal with root of rejection, your true potential for greatness will be hindered.
Rejection says, ‘you are not good enough’, ‘you are not attractive’, ‘you are not eloquent’, ‘you don’t belong in this category’, ‘no one loves you’, ‘no one cares for you’, ‘you will never make it.’ It’s time to ‘mash down that lie’! It is time to recognize and accept that you are fearfully and wonderfully made! You are great and you are going places – you are the head! You are bright! WALK IN VICTORY!

WORLD POLLUTION – THE NEXT THREAT!

pixabay-298805aca3503b9d
Based on past reports given by the World Health Organization (WHO), 3 million people die each year from the effects of air pollution alone. Furthermore, according to a WHO article, “According to Global Health Risks: Mortality and burden of disease attributable to selected major risks indoor air pollution is responsible for 2.7% of the global burden of disease.”
With gold mining, nuclear waste, and contaminated ground water; coupled with uranium mining, acid rain and growing garbage heaps around the world, what will be the result when they all connect. Further to this, there have been numerous disasters in various parts of the globe, earthquakes, floods and oil spills and they are all affecting air, land and sea. Is the world really prepared for and outbreak? In addition to all this, add the nuclear weaponry testing that is taking place in certain parts of the world. Pollution affects the entire environment – air, land and sea.
Further to all this, while China is the world’s fastest growing economy, it has the highest annual incidence of premature deaths triggered by air pollution in the world, according to a new study. The WHO report estimates that diseases triggered by indoor and outdoor air pollution kill 656,000 Chinese citizens each year, and polluted drinking water kills another 95,600.
Air Quality Advisor at the WHO Regional Office for Europe says “Air pollution is estimated to cause approximately two million premature deaths worldwide per year.”
The Sea
Is marine life safe? The millions of life forms below the sea each have their function and provide a delicate balance necessary for every one of them to exist.
Is fish safe for human consumption? Most of the smaller nations don’t have the high technology equipment to test for poisonous substances in the fish they cash and some of the fishes caught go directly from the nets to the household tables!
Cancers and unknown illnesses are going to come from consumption of contaminated sea food. What about skin cancers and other skin related diseases. Furthermore, every person who enters the sea directly ingests some of its water. What about internal problems?
When man tries to circumvent God’s laws, even concerning nature, suffering increases and even the very grass will wither and die. Diseases that we have never seen before will arise and it is the responsibility of every leader to have a pollution-free environment.
The Land
The issues that arise concerning land will undoubtedly affect our drinking water, ground water and the entire agricultural sector. Our livestock will be affected and human life in general because we all live on land.
Further to this, if human beings consume the meat from livestock and they are infected because of the water they drink, human beings will contract the diseases as well, and it may even worsen in humans.
The Air
Polluted air will cause serious respiratory diseases, skin diseases, diseases affecting the eyes and ear infections. The lungs will be most affected by these problems.
Solutions
All the nations need to come together and invest heavily in Environment-Friendly Activities because pollution will be the greatest threat ahead. There has to be monitoring and testing done in all countries to see what each nation’s greatest threat is and how to alleviate it.
There needs to be major national clean-ups globally and the First world nations must necessarily invest in smaller countries, because all nations are connected environmentally.
A major storage of vaccines, respiratory masks, respiratory medications, eye-drops and medication, sanitizes, water purification tablets and machinery and garbage collection receptacles must take place.
Garbage dumps need to be moved from urban areas.
More tanks need to be built to cultivate fresh fish in order to sustain good health.
There needs to be more solar powered cars or vehicles that use an alternative to petrol.
Give more training in schools at all levels – from primary to tertiary – on dealing with environmental issues and hazards.
Protect and secure the water catchment areas and tanks.
Most leaders are ignoring environmental problems for investment, but there needs to be a balance, otherwise, it will be useless to invest and not live to enjoy it!
More countries need to go green! We must go back to being GREEN!
More needs to be spent on the Public Health Sectors to monitor certain sectors.
Four main areas of concern must be addressed – the air, the water, the sea life and the bird life, before disease and death skyrockets. God gave us the world free from pollution and we need to fix and maintain it as far as possible.

BY HIS STRIPES YOU ARE HEALED

pixabay-348a8b62715960fb
was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5)
No one wants to be sick and it is God’s will for us to be in complete health (3 John 2). God wants us to prosper in body, soul and spirit. While God will use doctors to bring corrections to our bodies when we are sick we must realize that He is our healer, He is our chief physician. That is why he shed his blood on the cross, to bring healing. I believe Jesus’ number one ministry was His healing Ministry.
Matthew 9: 35 tells us, “Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.”
God wants to heal us emotionally, physically and spiritually. Even from broken relationships, and rejection. Romans 10 tells us that faith comes by hearing, and hearing the word of God, if you believe that God can heal you, confess it, this is a step in the right direction to receive your healing. Exodus 15: 26 shows that God wants no sickness in our bodies, he wants us to obey him and when we obey him no sickness from the Egyptians will come upon us. Psalm 147: 3 reminds ‘He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.’
Here are 10 simple things each one of us can do to claim our healing.
1. 3 Day Fasting (Isaiah 58:8)
2. Give to the poor (Psalm 41)
3. Tithe (Malachi 3:8-12)
4. Confess Isaiah 53:5, Psalm 103 and Psalm 91 over your life daily.
5. Drink a lot of water and anoint your body with oil as a point of contact which is scriptural.
6. Confess any sin, get rid of any unforgiveness
7. Use the blood of Jesus over your body by speaking it in prayer. The blood of Jesus never loses power!
8. Listen to the voice of God and obey his instructions (Deuteronomy 28: 1-14)
9. Ask your pastors to lay hands on you and pray for healing (James 5: 14-16)
10. SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE AND FOLLOW YOUR DOCTORS INSTRUCTIONS.
I decree and declare Psalm 103: 1 – 4 and Psalm 107: 20 over your life.
I decree and declare creative miracles into your body.
I decree and declare complete restoration of health, body, soul and sprit.
I decree and declare that the manifestation of God’s goodness will take place in your life and you will recover good health.
I decree and declare that there will be testimony of God’s healing power for everyone who has read this.
I decree and declare not just your health but also there will be healing in your finance, your marriage, your children, your community and everything the enemy has robbed you of, you shall recover all.
God bless you.
