Faith removes the veil between the visible and the invisible realms, between what's possible and what's impossible.
THE HEALING KINGDOM
You have been translated from a tangible earthly kingdom to an invisible heavenly one. Scripture gives the impression that it is the removal from one place to another. Although you are still surrounded by worldly influences, you are no longer subject to them. Your spiritual environment that now surrounds and influences you is greater than the natural one.
"[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love." Colossians 1:13 (Amplified)
It's important to grasp the reality of this, because you are profoundly influenced by association and environment, and are essentially a product of them. The more you realize that you are surrounded by God’s kingdom, the more you will allow it to transform you and tap into its benefits (Matthew 6:33).
“Am I a God near at hand,” says the LORD, “And not a God afar off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, so I shall not see him?” says the LORD; “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:23-24
God is no further than your consciousness of His presence, your prayer, worship, or reading His Word.
He has given us so many possibilities to continually experience His presence, so that your spirit, mind and body benefit. Jesus confirmed this when He said that the Kingdom1 has come near to you.
In John 10:9 it says, “And heal the sick there and say to them, the Kingdom of God has come near to you.”
The Kingdom is literally on all sides of you and everything it represents is available to you, including healing. Jesus ushered in the Kingdom of God on earth with the command to heal the sick. This is evidence that the Kingdom is here on earth and whoever represents it is mandated to heal the sick. We should be looking for opportunities to lay hands on the sick, without the fear of failure, or the intimidation that we are not qualified because we might be standing for healing ourselves. I heard a preacher once say the best time to lay hands on the sick is when you are sick yourself. This action goes against all logic, but that's exactly what God wants, and it might be the very act of obedience that gets both them, and you healed.
Wherever the Kingdom is represented it should be an environment for healing, whether at church or in the supermarket.
Healing the sick is a normal part of Kingdom activity, and local churches with this revelation will prepare to accommodate the influx of sick people who will come and receive what God’s healing Kingdom has to offer. Healing rooms are becoming more common in local churches around the world as places where the local community can receive healing and deliverance. The Kingdom is certainly here, but it takes faith and obedience to release the healing power you have at your disposal. It’s your duty as a Kingdom citizen to heal the sick as a testimony to saved and unsaved alike that the "Kingdom has come near."
Healing opens the door for you to testify of the nearness of His Kingdom, and removes the religious ideas that there is an infinite gulf between God and us.
As the Church matures, the veil between the impossible and the possible is getting very thin indeed. As we heal the sick, the spiritual veil will be removed from the eyes of those who do not see the invisible Kingdom of His presence and power. The physical manifestations of healing will convince many that He does exist.
HEALTH ACTION: DECLARE
- The resurrection power of the Holy Spirit is raising me up from every form of sickness. He is my partner who has come alongside me in agreement with my faith and confession of His Word.
- Declare it over and over that this is your legal inheritance given to you personally by your Father God. Let it become a reality according to Exodus 23:25 and, "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?” (Jeremiah 32:27)
WORSHIP HEALS BOOK
Worship is such a towering theme in the Bible, and there is strong evidence throughout scripture that worship is a powerful environment to receive healing, and maintain good health. God created you to worship, and it’s the one thing that He requires from you above all else.
It's not an overstatement to say that the Christian life is meaningless without worship, and your success and health is largely dependent on the lifestyle practice of it. By understanding the connection between worship and healing, your relationship with God will deepen, and you will enjoy a renewed sense of trust in Him as your Healer.
