When someone gets sick they are to have hands laid on them. Why?
Well, what made them sick caused them to be seperated from God and lose their faith. It’s the elders of the church imparting because they are the strongest in faith for miracles or they wouldn’t have been chosen to be an elder.
In this scripture passage I’m seeing that it’s not a condition for the person sick to have enough faith to be healed it’s the elders imparting what they have. It’s also showing there’s a need to repent of our sins. Sin damages our souls the Holy Spirit comes through the elder to repair the broken hearts from the sin seperating us.
Sickness isn’t always into death. And it doesn’t have to be. When we repent it’s our savior causing us to remove anything seperating us from his love.
This is laying hands
See it’s laying hands not two fingers or a hand. It’s laying on hands. Laying on two fingers I believe is coming from
Hindu practice. They pray for healing too but are not praying to the same God. They touch the temple of the head to impart. Or lay two fingers touching the body.
Information I compiled to help you pray:
Have you ever said something and it came to pass or spoke about a situation and it only got worse?
Our mouths can get us in trouble. The less said the better.
Have you ever said anything you regretted to someone? You can’t take those words back.
Words have power give them careful consideration.
Start taking thoughts captive
Bad thoughts can produce bad words.
Take words captive. Hold your tongue as much as you can.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
You can’t go to the Father in prayer without connecting to Yeshua(Jesus).
O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard a Christian radio host talking about his son watching videos of strangers opening pokemon cards. He said his son had watched for three hours at a time.
Many years ago I saw a glimpse of pokemon and it looked so demonic I would have stayed away for that alone. But I researched and found out there were many demonic powers this little yellow creature possessed. One of those was psyshic.
Why would anyone Christian touch anything demonic like that?
I’ve seen in several Christian homes objects of occult and new age. Are people perishing for lack of knowledge?
A Pastor wasn’t aware of the dangers of acupuncture telling a woman it was ok as long as she didn’t fully connect with it. I wasn’t sure what he meant but I wonder if he knew how dangerous it was if he would have changed his stance?
We are to be innocent of evil but could they be opening themselves up to evil without knowing it?
Maybe the body of Christ isn’t aware of the dangers of being unified with the world? King Solomon was very wise but yet he took on false gods. All occult is from false religions. They all are practices that should be avoided at all costs. God will have no other gods before him. And the main reason is all false religions have satan behind them being worshiped. Not a good thing at all. Wouldn’t you agree?
Then why aren’t they seeing it?
1 Corinthians 3
Could they be so innocent but yet so deceived?
How does that bewitchment come into a believer is it things they’ve never left? Or are these things they’ve pick up from the secularism carnal nature we all have.
There needs to be more teaching on concegreted sanctified lifestyles I presume.
Connecting your gut to your spiritual walk with God seems to be hooky, but this scripture makes it clear there’s a connection : John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water
I’ve experienced my most intimate times with the Lord during a fast. My thoughts were very clear. It was almost as if there was nothing blocking my belly for his living waters to flow through.
We’ve all had times after eating something great discomfort in our tummy. Is that a warning don’t eat that again? There have been sleepness night with an upset tummy. Was what I put in bad for me spiritually too?
The Bible is called bread of life. Bread is a natural substance used as food. The analogy of being fed by the Bible is strongly significant here. I remember as a young Christian having so much anxiety not knowing what to do. Then one day the Lord convicted me I was running out the door with no fuel. I didn’t eat breakfast so I’d burn out really early in the day because my body had no fuel. And I wasn’t meditating on the word of God to feed my spirit man so I’d be burnt out spiritually too. So after I got this revelation from God I would feed my spirit and my body before even starting the day. If ever I felt a little anxious I’d sit down open my Bible and partake in the spiritual food that gave me peace. It gave me clarity too. I had times where I had so much responsibility and didn’t know what to start. After sitting down with the word I had clear direction. Start the laundry first then put away the clean dishes make my phone calls. Order was being established in my life.
There are so many connections in the Bible with food besides it being called the bread of life. Taking communion is using a physical representation of bread being the body of Christ and wine being his blood. Taking it in remembrance not only reminds of us his sacrifice but the antioxidants in the wine to clean the blood the bread to not do it on an empty stomach.
There are references if a brother be weak in his flesh with infirmity and eat just vegetables we should not judge him.
Romans 14 3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
There’s wisdom in abstaining from food if you are dealing with any type of infirmity. Giving the gut a break from food gives you time to get your gut back in order without putting digestive stress on it. When you abstain from food it allows the gut time to heal. Then it processes better.
When you do a cleanse you clean out anything that might be blocking you spiritually too.
Just some food for thought for you.
How can I say such a thing? Well, it’s my testimony I was claiming to be a Christian and had no idea I was living like the devil going to hell. A Roman Catholic girl raised with a strict Italian upbringing. They told us to not have sex before marriage but never the reason why. We were taught out don’t say curse words. Well my Grandad told me Christina you have a better vocabulary than that. He never referenced the Bible in Collosians where it says don’t do that. So I was given a lot of rules without understanding consequences of sinning. Don’t do this don’t do that never the reason why.
I fell into sins that any Christian could have without reading the Bible. Well, at least I thought I was a Christian but after reading the Bible I found out I was certainly not. The word Christian means Christ like. Christ would ever do things as doing for sure. People attending church weekly could be living like the devil too. It doesn’t save you saying you’re a Christian you have to act like one too. To act like one you must know what one is.
The Bible was created for us to eat like bread daily. The scripture give us this day our daily bread. We are to chew on that word daily like a piece of bread, one bite at a time. When it’s eaten it gets into our system it’s digested and used for energy just like food.You’ll be full the more you eat. We feed our bodies but forget to feed our spirit, most of the time. Our souls starve without the living word. Eventualy without it you could starve and die a second death without it. The first is your body the second is your soul dying.
2 Timothy 3:6 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
These words feed our spirit and soul truth. Without correction your Spirit dies. The opposite of truth is lies. Truth brings good fruit and life. Lies produce fruit rotten fruit and death.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Without being in the word with correction you’ll end up living a life of sin.
It wasn’t until after I started reading the Bible that I started to understand the error if my ways.
Continual sin brings death to your soul. Christ died so we could have eternal life. In his death he lⁿp upeft us the Holy Spirit to fill us when we have communion in the word and in spending time with God in prayer or worship.
I called myself a Christian without reading the Bible to know what a Christian was. It’s not what we call it because we claim it we are. It’s what we live. The word Christian means Christ like. How could anyone be like Christ without even knowing him?
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”
Sin glorifies the devil because he is the father of all lies.When you aren’t corrected you live in deception being deceived. You become blinded to truth. You’ve all heard the song Amazing Grace? If not look up the lyrics. I was blind but now I see.
Don’t claim to be a Christian be one! The devil doesn’t need any more followers by default. Live righteous for righteousness sake. Because if you live like the devil, you’ll surely go to hell with the devil. He hates God’s creation and wants for all to live like him without God. If he can get you to follow a doctrine other then one that’s holy, he’ll grab a hold of you.
This sin unto death like I said is not only physical but spiritual. We are made with three parts. Body soul and spirit. If your soul choses to live in flesh and not the spirit your spirit will die. What do you see in a casket? A dead body without it’s spirit and a dead soul.
We are born in the flesh the spirit does not reside in us until we choose him to. The Holy Spirit will indwell in you only when your will is to have him in your life and body.
So examine yourself 2 Corthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
Heaven is where you want to be for an eternity I assure you.
The night before the attack I was up most of the night sick. That morning I slept in. My morning routine was to wake up go down to the kitchen and turn phone ringer on. That morning I saw my answering machine had a lot of messages. It struck me as odd. Then the messages were even more strange. I pressed the button and began to prepare breakfast. The first was message was an business associate of mine. He said “Christine, I’m so sorry I hope your family is ok?” I looked over at the machine puzzled.Just waking up being groggy didn’t help much. The second message was my Mom. she said “Christine we are fine, but concerned they closed off Long Island we can’t get out.” Please try to call me. In shock by these strange messages. I froze as the last message played. My ex husband screaming “Christine turn the TV on and call me immediately!” At that point I was clueless and concerned about my family. I was living in Charlotte, NC at the time. So hearing Long Island was closed off made my heart race. There had to be an emergency of some sort for that.
Turning on the tevelision the first thing I saw was live coverage of the tower and bodies falling out of it. In shock and disbelief watching I thought it was fake. it looked like a godzilla movie. I ran to grab the phone to call my ex husband. He said “I think we’re at war go get batteries, candles, fill up our gas gallon tanks!” He said “Joe is struck on the bridge coming out of NYC, they are concerned it might get blown up!” Joe was my sister in-laws boyfriend. He said all of the phone lines are out in NY.
I heard loud screaming coming from my TV. I looked up to see the second tower had been hit. I said “David please get home, I just saw the second tower get hit by an airaplane.” We both paused and were at a loss for words. He told me he would try to get home as soon as he could. That I needed to pull myself together and get the supplies he requested.
I decided to walk to get gas gallons to not use any gas in my car. On the way back a man in a very large truck jumped down and said” What are you doing?” I told him “I’m getting gas for our vehicles.” He said “Where will you go?” Then he looked me straight in the eyes with his peircing blue eyes. “Don’t you trust God?” I dropped my gas can I was so taken back by what he said. I was a new Christian, how did he even know believed in God?I said “Yes I do” He said then go home and pray” He jumped back up into his truck. I looked down a split second to grab my gas can. He literally disapeared into thin air. I was visted by an angel. I felt this peace wash over me as I walked home.
Coming in I could hear my phone rining the machine came on, it was my church they were opening the church for anyone that wanted to pray. I immediately went there. News reporters were outside as I was leaving. I saw a reporter coming towards me and walked out the furthest door I could to avoid her. That night I saw they filmed me inside praying I felt violated. My family was stuck on Long Island with no way of getting out and my thoughts we were at war. I truly had no words to say that might be encouraging at that time.
As I continued to seek God he led me to read Mark 13. In this passage it spoke of end times and buildings being torn down. I felt some peace knowing and some nervousness we were heading in the direction of end times. It was a large blow to NY but many started seeking God over it. Especially those that saw this coming out from the rubble.
So that morning I turned on the TV to see a revival that was started. Everything satan means for bad God turns to good.
Who’s doing the gossiping? Just about anyone that doesn’t catch themselves doing it.
I overheard a Pastor’s wife complaining about a girl that was in the church nursery. It was after bible study we all were talking in little groups. She was not too far away and her tone and the stuff coming out of her made the room so uncomfortable.
She had no idea what she was doing. When you do this it opens doors for evil to mount up larger than what you’ve already complained about. We give power to the devil not only in our lives for allowing angry words about another but by passing judgement on another.
2 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
How many of us are guilty of doing this? Complaining about is gossip.
There’s nothing productive coming from talking negatively about another.
We are to go to the person directly or take another person with us to resolved conflict. Not try yo form a lynch mob of people to agree with you.
When you gossip you are confessing another persons sins for them. Wouldn’t that be better for them to do? They answer for themselves not you.
Most gossips are jealous using negative information to defame your character. Think about it the things they tell others about you, would they ever share about themselves?
