Why is so much of the church SICK? Physically, spiritually and soulishly?

Remember the power of agreement, agree with the minister and you get what you agree.  Silence isn’t agreement!

Do not be deceived into accusing God for something that is clearly not His nature and come into agreement with your enemy! Blasphemy

Proverbs 4:20-22 NKJV
“My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.”

Why is so much of the church SICK? Physically, spiritually and soulishly? Hopefully we will answer this sad reality.

John 10:10-11 NKJV
“The devil comes to rob (he steals where stealth comes from), to kill, and to destroy. But I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. “

Could it be true, that if we prevent the devil from stealing from us, that it might stop him killing us?

⁃ The seed is the word of God that he steals?! Why?
⁃ Maybe because it is healing and life?
⁃ Gods word is His will and His will is who He is
⁃ There are things that are written that weren’t His will
⁃ We know that God would have it that none would perish…right? But people still perish, disobedience makes people perish
⁃ He wants His people to not fight against one another, yet they do
⁃ He wants families to live in harmony, but we don’t!
⁃ So His will is pushed to places He’d preferably not go in ways to restore
⁃ An appropriate smack for a child isn’t your will, but you know without discipline one day the law of the land will
⁃ Why? Because God loves us
⁃ But don’t mistaken His will is from motivation of love and restoration

God is Positive, pure and He is all powerful, all knowing, Omni present, there cannot be evil in Him,

1. Light, life, health, love, joy, in Him there is no shadow of turning, no variables

He doesn’t tempt anyone!

James 1:13-17 NKJV
“Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”

1. He even causes the rain to fall on the just and the unjust, even people who reject Him, He still does positive things to
2. It’s the goodness of God that draws man to repentance when they are sinners

1. His word is LIFE and His word is His will
2. He cannot lie, In Him the promises are displayed and they are yes and amen

III John 1:2 NKJV
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”

Prosper: true prosperity is to get well, stay well, live right and staying prosperous! Not even worrying about getting sick, not matter what you eat.

Joshua 1:1-2, 4-9 NKJV
“After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, it came to pass that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, saying: “Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them—the children of Israel.

From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall (shall is futuristic) be your territory. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and of good courage, (because you still have to do it) for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses (abide in my words) My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night,

that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

DO WE WALK LIKE THIS? Why not?

Do we meditate day and night on His Living Word?

WHATEVER WE NEED, HIS WORD IS!!
⁃ Wholeness
⁃ Reconciliation
⁃ Acceptance
⁃ Forgiveness
⁃ Love
⁃ Financial increase
⁃ Liberty
⁃ Restoration
⁃ Fathers love
⁃ Covering
⁃ Healing
⁃ Sound mind…..the list goes on

Do we meditate day and night on His Living Word?

MEDITATE: is more than just thinking upon His Word or reading it in your mind!

Meditate: true meditating on Gods word as we know the scripture says, but hearing, speaking and being a doer of His word. To think (soul), to speak confession into the heavenly realm (Sprit) and walk it out, do (body brings actions to my faith)

1. Think
2. Speak
3. Do

WANT TO ALWAYS TRIUMPH OVER YOUR ENEMY?
II Corinthians 2:14 NKJV
“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”

NEED HEALTH?
Proverbs 4:20-23 NKJV
“My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them (His Words and sayings) depart from your eyes (eyes are windows to your soul); Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they (His Words) they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.”

WANT SPIRIT AND LIFE?
John 6:63 NKJV
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”

DONT BE DECEIVED!
“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”
James 1:22 NKJV

WANT THE FAITHFULNESS OF GOD?
Psalms 119:89-93 NKJV
“Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You established the earth, and it abides. They continue this day according to Your ordinances, For all are Your servants. Unless Your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction. I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have given me life.”

NEED HELP TO LIVE PURE?
Psalms 119:9-11 NKJV
“How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.”

NEED FORGIVENESS? Fall at His feet, cleaning them with your tears, kiss and anoint Him

Pharisee who casually inquired more of Jesus and held Him at arms length
VS
the sinful women who held nothing back from Him and poured herself out!!

Which type of person are you?

Luke 7:36-38, 41-48 NKJV
“Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil.

“There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?” Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.” And He said to him, “You have rightly judged.” Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil. Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.” Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

You see nothing happens to a believer if He/She doesn’t stand upon the Word of God and put to action.

You won’t get a single promise if you don’t personalise it, and take it for yourself!!

Faith with out any action is dead faith, not little faith but DEAD!!

Matthew 7:7-12 NKJV
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”

In other words, do to others as you would what them to do to you!!
If you were hungry? What
In prison what would you want?
Homeless?
In sickness?
Just Divorced? What would you like?

WANTING YOUR HOUSE TO STAND THROUGH THE STORMS OF LIFE?
Matthew 7:24 NKJV
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:”
