MEMORISE : 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. 1 PETER 2 : 24.
READ : JOHN 5 : 2 – 9.
2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the
Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered,
waiting for the moving of the water.
4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the
water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was
made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that
case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is
troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth
down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked:
and on the same day was the sabbath.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : HABAKKUK 1 : 1 – 3 : 19 AND MATTHEW 12 : 33 – 50.
It is God’s desire for the body of Christ to be strong physically. Believers are
members of the body of Christ, and if any part of the body is diseased, the head
will not be at ease. Jesus is our Head. He is not happy whenever we suffer in
any part of our body. He has released the gift of healing so that we will be
alright and happy always, because our happiness makes Him Happy. Joy comes
with healthy living; there is no happiness in ill-health. This is why I know that
anything in your body contrary to healthy living is destroyed now In Jesus’
In Mathew 8 : 1 – 3, a leper came to Jesus and was healed when He touched him.
According to John 9 : 1 – 7, after a man born blind met with Jesus, Jesus
anointed his eyes with mud made from soil and spittle and told him to go and
wash. Immediately, a new beginning of healthy living became his portion. In the
Name that is above every other name, everything dead in you will come alive,
and whatever causes you sorrow is reversed now in Jesus’ Name.
I tell people to always look forward to partaking in the Holy Communion,
because it is usually an opportunity to make contact with the body of Jesus
Christ. As you look forward to the next communion table, whatever curses are
warring against your body and terminal ailment hindering your joy will be
completely taken care of in Jesus’ Name. Whether it is a health problem
affecting your body, a problem which the doctor has said will lead to death or
long- standing problems that drains your finances, it is completely reversed
now In Jesus’ Name. If you want to experience a new beginning of healthy
living, you must remember healing is food for God’s children and not for dogs
( Matthew 15 : 25 – 28 ). When your relationship with heaven put you into the
category of ‘children’, healthy living and victory will come your way. Healing
comes by faith. Except a sick person has faith that Jesus can heal, he or she
will not experience a healthy lifestyle. Mark 5 : 35 – 42 demonstrates to us the
place of faith in action. Jesus took the daughter of Jairus by hand and she was
raised from the dead, all because her father did not lose faith in the face of a
negative report. The assurance we have as the body of Christ is that the
perfect will of God for us is to experience healthy living. Have faith in God that
your case is not impossible with Him. He is so concerned about you that He will
perform special miracles in your life if need be.
ACTION POINT :
Utilise the opportunity of the next Communion table to tap into God’s healing
