The Church of God of The Firstborn
Today we are writing about one of the good things God has in his Bible. This is for his people, in this day, on Earth to enjoy and that is healing and health for the body.
Exodus 15:26 "And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee."
God in this verse tells us he will not put any disease on his people, if they will hearken diligently (earnestly) to his true Word. We know God has made a way for his people in this last day and through this way, God has given his people a wonderful way of being healed and living in health. There is a way commonly practiced by people in this day we know that is fine for those who do not believe what God says in his Word, but people who really are God's people and really believe God, obey his Word and are kept healthy. But in case one is weak in faith or may abuse their body (which is sin), there is a way provided in God's good book as we have seen in our text and also in,
1st Peter 2:24 "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed."
Showing us our healing was paid for by the stripes of Jesus before he was nailed to the tree, we see in the gospels that Jesus was scourged by Pilate which was the price paid in full for the healing of God's people. James also tells us in,
James 5:14:15 "Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him."
These scriptures show what has to be done to get this great healing.
Today most people call their doctor for their bodily healing, in the same manner, we as a believer in God must obey his Word, to be healed from all diseases, through the prayer of faith. Let each one call upon God in the time of need! Yet, it is better to not get in such a situation by caring for our bodies, obeying God and being a blessed people, because God is not glorified in a sick body. Many of God's children are sick because they do not care for their bodies as they should. Our body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Does the Spirit of God dwell in you? So then we are warned not to abuse this temple. Let us live a temperate life in all things which means to keep a well maintained balance , we can't overdo or under-do in life situations.
1st Cor. 9:25 "And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things..."
So let us use the good sound mind God has given us, obey his Word, and be a healthy people
Psalm 105:37 "He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes."
Allow the incorruptible seed of God to remain in you, allow the strength of God to raise you up to perfect health both spiritually and physically.
1st John 3:9 "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he can not sin, because he is born of God."
