Health and healing through prevention
Yahweh desires us to be whole. He desires us to be healthy in body, mind and spirit, and I am convinced that the answers are all to be found in the deliverance and healing and salvation wrought for us by His Son on Calvary.
However, about 10 years ago I began to realise something else. Yahweh would rather that we did not get sick at all, and that Prevention is better than cure! I began discovering that we, unknowingly, bring some sicknesses upon ourselves because of our ignorance and lack of knowledge, simply, through wrong thinking. The adversary of our souls knows our weaknesses, he also knows our ignorance. Let me give you an example: Someone, let us call him Mr. M. He is a very angry man. He is harbouring a deep grudge against someone who has wronged him. Someone he used to be close to. His anger grows and grows, his resentment and bitterness deepens. He pushes this anger down, it enters his very inner regions. He stews and stews and it gnaws and gnaws on him inside. One day he has a terrific pain and ends up in hospital, heart attack. The anger has done its work. He has refused to forgive, ignored the manual the Great Designer created for his health and wellbeing, and ended up with a life-threatening condition. Too late! The scriptures give us guide-lines to teach us how to live our lives, in order that we should find peace and health in our lifetimes. How foolish to ignore the rules – and when we become sick or someone in our family dies through a nasty, lingering illness – who do we blame? The very One Who loves us the most, and Who taught us through His Word and through His Son, a way of life which would prevent it.
A new revelation
Recently I have been finding out that a lot of our diseases have in fact, spiritual roots. Ministry on this subject has changed my life. (see end of article)
Many diseases can be prevented and beaten through understanding their sources. For example, if I am overcome with unforgiveness, bitterness, resentment, fear, anger, hatred for myself or others, I am, inadvertantly perhaps, setting myself up to be invaded by disease. Also, some diseases have their roots in our ancestry, and have been passed down to us. It is possible to prevent ourselves from inheriting these 'curses' through dealing with ancestral spiritual roots and attitudes. It is possible to "Cast down imaginations, and every hight thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of Elohim, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Messiah"(2 Cor. 10:5). This is an immensely powerful scripture to remember and tool to use in our warfare against our enemy.
I have known many people who have lost the battle against sickness through these very same issues. I have heard people with chronic arthritis pronounce “I will never forgive him/her for what he/she did to me!” Our diseases can be a direct result of what we allow into our lives through wrong thoughts.
The good news is that we can find answers, in Yahshua, for all sickness and disease, either through direct gifts of healing or sorting out our thinking habits. It means thinking about what we first allow into our minds, and then 'brood' on until it sinks into our phyche where wrong thinking can cause havoc with our cellular structure and organs. We are encouraged to "Put on the whole armour of Elohim that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of Elohim, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day ..." (Ephesians 6:11-17) for we fight against a very real enemy, one who does not want us to be healed and whole. As mentioned in the first paragraph, prevention is so much better than cure! We need to 'captivate' wrong thoughts and not allow them to fester within us. Disease prevention is a lot easier than seeking for healing later when it is too late, when our 'stinking thinking' (as Henry Wright puts it in his book "A More Excellent Way") has opened us up to disease. The Adversary will try and infiltrate our minds with negative thoughts about ourselves or other people. He will try and feed us with resentful thoughts, suspicious thoughts, and he presents them to our minds in a form which makes us think they are our own. We are able to take control at this point, but the moment we allow the thoughts to remain, and dwell on them, it isn't long before they 'run away with us' and then comes the involvement with our emotions, and then these thoughts from outside are much more difficult to destroy. No wonder we are exhorted to "...Finally, whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report... think on these things."(Phil. 4:8)
I personally have found that dealing with spiritual roots of disease has brought great victories into my life. It wasn’t until I realised that fear and anxiety, especially about the future causes high blood pressure. There was a time in my life when I was under quite a lot of emotional pressure, and my blood pressure soared. I was on medication for a while, but after learning about the spiritual root, I was able, with Yahweh's help to overcome the anxieties about the future, and gradually, with some effort to stay in trust and in the 'secret place of the Most High' He helped me to overcome. I am no longer on medication and my blood pressure is now normal. It wasn’t until I fought stress (which is linked very much to fear) that the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome was broken in my life. How wonderful that it is possible to be set free from this debilitating disease which plagued me for years. Salvation brings freedom from so very much, and YHWH desires that we have understanding of spiritual issues in order that He may set us free. It isn’t until we are able to forgive ourselves that Yahweh is able to normalise our cholesterol levels. When we deal with unforgiveness and issues which we harbour (females) against someone of our own sex breast cancer can be eradicated. There is no 'magic wand' of course, and some diseases, especially inherited ones need the gifts of healing, but disease prevention is what our Father wants for us. Our hearts and minds are where our battles are fought, and keeping them free from sinful or negative thinking can keep us from spiritually rooted diseases which are a direct outcome of wrong thinking habits.
These are but a few of the spiritual roots there are which plague humanity in our day which, through Yahshua we are able to conquer. If you would like to know more about my own findings on these subjects, please don't hesitate to write to me.
Also, I would encourage you, if this has interested you, to look at this link to some of Henry Wright's teachings who has spent his life studying this subject and YHWH has given him tremendous insight. Also, you could order his book (which can be downloaded onto Kindle or despatched to you quite cheaply from Amazon.) The book is called: “Be in Health” written by Henry Wright. There are also many dvd's and cd's available which are inspired for your healing and health and deliverance from the enemy of your soul. I pray that you will avail yourself of this wonderful source of Ministry.
