There is heat which is producing an intense pressure against the Joy The LORD has released.
But the results have already being ordained. Many are going forward and reaping results despite the pressure.
Yes, we are still on our subject of divine healing, and we have discussed in our previous words that all Christians on the planet are already healed through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
The problem is that most believers have not recognized or discerned that the Body and Blood of Jesus took all our sicknesses and sins.
Many a times we hear, “Believe! Believe! Have faith! Have faith!”….. but often we do not know how to have faith or how to believe. Which is what I shared in my HKP Word “The LORD Has Uniquely Anointed You“.
How do I discern? How do I exercise my faith to experience healing?
We are told clearly in Scripture;
“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world,” 1 John 4:17.
Observe carefully the last part of the verse “as He is, so are we in this world”.
Notice it does not say, ‘as we are ,so is He‘, but, ‘as He is, so are we in this world’. Not ‘as He was’, but as he is presently, so are we in this world.
That means if I want to know my condition, I must look to Jesus. He is the definition of my state and not my circumstances. My sicknesses cannot define me, my poverty cannot define me. If I want to know my state as He is, so am I in this world.
Not in the world to come but in this present word. He is the image of all that I am in God.
He is my life, he is my reality and not how I feel. Not what I see with my physical eyes, not what I think outside of him — but he is my state.
As he is, so are we in this world. Now this is what you recognise and acknowledge or agree with.
Now when I am tempted with sickness and every other thing how do I exercise my faith?
We are clearly told;
“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of The LORD, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of The LORD,” 2 Corinthians 3:18.
Observe carefully, we behold the glorious image, and as we keep looking at that image we are changed into the same image by the power of the Spirit of God. This is why we must accept the image that as he is, so are we in this world.
With our hearts we keep looking at the glory of Jesus, we look at his health and proclaim it is ours. We look at his prosperity and say it is ours. We look at his joy and accept it is ours, as we keep doing this, we are changed into the same image.
The problem with many people is that they don’t agree to stay looking at the beauty. Under the old covenant David knew this and laid hold on it.
You want divine health? Then you must look at the image daily and accept that it is yours. Accept with your heart and keep proclaiming!
A lot of people proclaim without taking the time to behold the image, and when they don’t see the results after some time, they say it is not real.
I tell you the truth this is the way of faith. What I have just shared with you here is a spirituality key to unlocking the fullness of God in your life.
Look at what we are told in The Book of James;
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves,” James 1:22.
Wow, it says if you only hear and not do act, You Are Deceiving Yourself. You are lying to yourself, if you do not act on The Word. If you do not accept The Word you are lying to your own self.
“For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was,” James 1:23-24.
Oh how I wish you could get this.
It says The Word is our mirror — it tells us who we are and not our circumstances.
It says “For he beholdeth himself” ah! The resurrected Jesus I see in scripture, that is me! I am beholding myself. I am looking at myself when I look at Jesus!
That image is my person — for as He is, so are we in this world. He is my reality. When I behold him, I am beholding myself. I am looking at myself just like I do when I am standing before a natural mirror.
Observe carefully the last part. It says, if you will not accept what The Word says you are, after looking, you are like a man who “goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.”
Notice it does not say he forgets what manner of man he is! No, what manner of man he was! For who he was is his reality, his real person. Who he saw in the word is his person, that is the true him.
Now look at the next verse,
“But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed,” James 1:25.
Observe the words “continueth therein”. As you keep beholding, you are changed into the same image. You keep the image at whatsoever cost.
When you loose the image, you loose you. The real you is Christ. You must keep looking at him, accepting all he is and confessing him as your reality to see the manifestation — for as he is, so are we in this world.
We will continue tomorrow….
In encounter with The LORD, I saw an explosion of the miraculous, I saw as eyes glasses were being thrown off and I heard shouts of “I can see! I can see!”
Then The Spirit led me to:
“Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them,” Matthew 11:4-5.
Then The LORD said, “I AM here! This is the hour of the manifestation of The Son.
In this season the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised up and The Gospel is preached to the poor.
These signs, miracles and wonders are the announcement of the arrival of The Son of God in the restoration of Zion”
