The Head And Body Are One

Colossians 1:18  -  And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

God’s Word says that Christ is the head and we the church are His body. So Christ and the church are one. Christ and u are one! You cannot say that God sees Christ the head perfect but His body imperfect. Or that Christ is accepted but His body not accepted. The measure of Jesus’ acceptance with God is the measure of your acceptance with God! 

So it makes no sense 2 say that the head is well but the body sick, that the head is rich but the body poor, or that the head is at rest but the body full of stress. My friend, what Jesus is before God, u His body are. As He is, so are u in this world! (1 John 4:17)

Today, God wants u 2 lay claim on Christ being your head. Start believing that all His perfections, and the delight and joy that He brings 2 the Father’s heart, He has set 2 your account. And u will begin 2 realize that as Jesus is a sweet-smelling aroma 2 the Father, so are u!

The more u begin 2 see that u are one with Christ, the more u will realize that whatever u need right now, He is dispensing 2 u. If u are sick in your body, Christ your head imparts His health and healing 2 u. If u lack wisdom, Christ your head freely imparts His wisdom 2 u. If u have any lack, Christ your head gives u His exceeding riches.

Beloved, have this rich revelation that Christ and u are one. You can never be separated from Christ your head from whom comes all the supply for your body — all the power, wisdom, prosperity and health. So declare, “As He is, so am I in this world!”

6 Satanic Deceptions Concerning Increase

6 Satanic Deceptions Concerning Increase:

1.   Our enemy, satan, creates 'doubt' that God wants u 2 experience increase.

2.  He creates 'guilt' 4 even desiring increase. [1000s of diligent workers are accused of being greedy and materialistic bcoz of their constant pursuit of excellence.]

3.  He creates an attitude of 'self-sufficiency.'  Many attempt uncommon success without the counsel and assistance of God.

4.  He creates 'jealousy' toward others who enjoy uncommon blessing.  Envy is deadly.

5.  He creates an 'inordinate desire' 4 something u have not yet earned or deserved.
     "Withhold not good from them '2 whom it is due', when it is in the power of thine hand 2 do it" (Proverbs 3:27).

6.  He tempts u 2 pursue increase 'unlawfully or unethically.'  Resenting your potential
     increase, satan crafts brilliant strategies 2 paralyze the Promise of 1000 MORE.
     Yes, it is impossible 4 satan 2 expel your desire 4 increase.  Even bvabies reach 4
     something more.  He can only distort, pervert and twist this principle in your life.
     Through guilt, doubt and envy, he weaves a web of deceit that robs u of the 1000
      MORE God said u deserved.

    Poverty is so unnecessary.
    Loss is so painful.
    Ignorance is so deadly.
    Wisdom is so rewarding.

    [I have fallen in love w/the Holy Spirit.]  He is the Spirit of Wisdom.  (C Isaiah 1:2).  He is the Source of every good gift u receive from God.  (Read I Corinthians 2:9,10).

    1000 times more Peace.
    1000 times more Joy.
    1000 times more Love.
    1000 times more Finances.
    1000 times more Wisdom.
    1000 times more Miracles.
    1000 times more Victories.
    1000 times more Favor.
    1000 times more Ideas.
    I know your 'need' 4 increase, your 'desire' 4 increase, your 'Source' 4 increase.

    I hate pain.
    I want u completely 'healed.'
    That is why I wrote this book.

Jesus Is Still Jehovah Rapha

Exodus 15:26 … I am the Lord who heals you.”

Do u know that the first compound name that the Lord revealed 2 the Israelites after they came out of Egypt was Jehovah Rapha, the Lord who heals u? It was as if He was telling them, as they began their new life with Him, that He had already healed them of all the diseases and pains they suffered when they were in bondage in Egypt. Indeed, when He brought them out of Egypt, “there was none feeble among His tribes”. (Psalm 105:37)

Today, just as the Israelites were delivered from their bondage in Egypt and from slavery 2 Pharaoh, u have also been delivered from the bondage of sin and sickness, and from slavery 2 the devil, by the blood of the Lamb. And the Lord, who is the same yesterday, today and forever, still says 2 u, “I am the Lord who heals u.”

A church member, who was experiencing pain in her womb for several months, looked 2 Jesus as her healer even as she went 2 see a doctor, who performed an ultrasound scan on her womb. When told that she had two big tumors and several blood cysts in her womb, she continued 2 look 2 Jesus as her healer. The doctor then had her blood tested 2 see if the tumors were cancerous.

Three days later, she saw the doctor again and was told that the tumors were not cancerous. Not only that, but a second ultrasound scan also showed that all the cysts and one of the tumors had completely disappeared! The other tumor had also shrunk. Although she had taken medication, the doctor told her that based on the original size of the tumor, it should have taken months 2 shrink that much. He commented that this was the quickest healing he had ever seen!

Beloved, if the doctor has given u a bad report regarding your health, don’t despair. Look 22 Jesus and expect healing for your body. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is still Jehovah Rapha — the Lord who heals U!
