Over the course of the next several weeks, I will be writing blogs titled Miracles of Healing: The Dear Billy Letters. I have been preparing in my heart for this venture sharing knowledge, understanding and experiences with billyb in the hope and belief that he can divert having to have surgery and receive miracles of healing. I will be posting an introductory letter in one or two days.
The purpose of this post is to tell you that for the first time in two years, I have been sick for about four days. Sickness does not belong to me, I belong to Jesus Christ. The sad thing is I allowed access to Satan and thus have become sick. My grandson, whom I have had in my home every day since he became sick, which I have concluded must have been a pretty nasty virus. He basically has been sick and still not fully over the coughing associated with this sickness for nearly two weeks.
What I normally do is if I am even exposed to the possibility of coming down with a cold, flu or virus, I speak to my body and I do not allow germs, bacteria, viruses to enter my body because by the stripes of Jesus I was healed. Sickness and disease do not belong to me. I will not claim any form of sickness and allow it entrance into my body. Well this time, I was negligent thinking that I had pretty much conquered these types of sicknesses and did not command and speak against it.
After I understood that I can speak healing and prevention of sickness to my body in the Name of Jesus, over the past 3 1/2 years, I have only been sick once. That was two years ago and also at Christmas time. At that time, I had also given access to Satan and he will take any opportunity to attack God's servants whenever he can.
I will share with you what I do when I am in a situation where I may be exposed to such sicknesses as colds, flus, viruses. I begin by claiming who I am in God and my relationship with Jesus Christ:
I am a daughter of God
I belong to Jesus Christ. He purchased me through His blood sacrifice and my sins have been forgiven. By His stripes I have been healed.
Within me dwells the Holy Spirit, the very resurrection power of God.
No sickness, no disease has any place in me. I belong to Jesus Christ.
Germs, bacteria, viruses, you cannot enter this body. If you have entered my body you must leave now in the Name of Jesus.
Colds, flu, viruses, any sickness and any and all symptoms of sickness, you can not have access to my body. If you have entered my body, you cannot stay, you must leave now. In the Name of Jesus, I command you to leave.
All glory to God through His Son Jesus Christ. Thank you Jesus.
I have experienced that it is much easier to deny germs, bacteria and viruses entrance to your body, then it is to remove them once they have been allowed to take hold in your body.
I messed up and after I became sick, it is like a really nasty head cold, I tried to cast it out of me and called out to God. Last evening, Jesus gave me this prophetic response:
Dorothy - I hear your heart calling out to Me wondering why you are experiencing being sick. Do not conclude that you are or have done something in error. My foe (Satan) wants to be a major distraction at this juncture. Know that I am in control. Be at peace within yourself. Wellness is just ahead. You will find strength through this experience. You are learning what needs to be done and how focused you must be upon Me to ward of these attacks and his deceiving distractions.
I am your anchor. The boat you are on right now will find calm waters to continue on your journey. Do not be discouraged. You have said many times today (Friday) that you know I will never leave you. You know, I will never forsake you. And you embrace the understanding that I am with you through every problem and struggle in your life.
My confidence is taking root within you. Know that you walk in My confidence. You need not rely on your own.
You are precious to Me and My plan and purpose for your life will come to full fruition in due time.
Find your rest in Me. Trust Me with great commitment. I will not let you down. I am your faithful friend. There is non other like Me.
Firstly I am saddened to hear that you have been laid low, secondly to know that God is in control and thirdly for sharing so that we all can learn from the teachings that the HS is showing you in regards to healing.
All praise and thanksgiving to God our beloved Father
Well, regardless what happens in this life, He is the Almighty, and He loves us. These tents are temporary. But will be changed. Lot of sickness around here too. But there have been some awful plagues and such, down through time, so we got lots to be thankful for I reckon. 'Them that love God', it all will work out for good (did them too). (lemon, warm water, and honey), as my mom would say:) God Bless. billy
I'm looking forward to reading your series on this subject sister. Over the years I have witnessed many wonders of God in the area of physical and mental healing. Often these wonderful works of God are instantaneous. To God be the Glory . . . he never fails . . . His will always be done.
I'm praying for a teaching which leads to increased faith in the body of Christ.
When teaching in this area we must never forget what Jesus said when He was asked: [quote]"Who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"[/quote]
Only God truly knows the reason why people are physically or mentally ill. We must always keep in mind how Jesus answered His disciples: [quote]"Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him."[/quote]
The slightest pointing of a finger has the power to destroy all good which has previously been done in the life of a person. The last thing a physically or mentally ill person needs to hear is it is their fault they are ill or their fault they are not healed.
We cannot force the hand of God . . . His will be done. We preach, teach, and minister that faith may be increased however God is in control. When people are not healed we don't understand. However, we do trust God knows best. We deeply care about the physical condition of everyone but their spiritual health is much more important.
Sister, I pray you hear His voice clearly in this and He uses you in a powerful way during this series that many may come to believe Jesus continues to heal, even in this evil age we are living in.
I apologize for not responding to these comments. Thank you all for them. Thanks for the encouragement. I will do better as these writings on healing continue to be written. God is so good!!!
