WHOLENESS

Lesson 53


Shalom is the Hebrew Word for peace, which denotes wholeness for spirit, soul and body.

When we abide in Christ, peace is our portion, because He is the Prince of peace, Jehovah Shalom. 

In this place we can hear God’s voice clearly, because our whole being is absorbed in Him, tuned to the frequency of His heart.

The key is to keep our mind under His reign, completely unified in Him, tuned to Oneness. 

When we worship Him in His Name, Johovah Shalom, His peace floods our souls and permeates our whole being.

In Shalom we will experience Kingdom emotions of thankfulness and joy resulting in new songs of the Spirit rising up to Him, causing us to come in a flow of illuminating revelation of the God-head, pulsating with life.

Our mortal bodies are quickened with the “energeo” of the Holy Spirit in rejuvenating vibrancy and the whole of our being is in harmony and soundness.

John 15/2 Cor.10:4-6/Is.11:2

What do I do when I am emotionally “moved”, being upset and disturbed?


Lesson 52

When I am "moved" out of my peace and joy it is important to get perspective on the cause of it.
The Scriptures give us a very important directive in Isaiah 26:3-4:
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusts in Thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in JAH, the LORD is the strength of the ages.” (Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)

We are taught to keep our mind on the Lord, but our problem doesn’t start with the mind. It starts with what we have our eyes on!

King David says, “I have set the LORD always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.” Ps.16:8

When our eyes are fixed on the Lord Jesus, our mind gets wrapped around His glory, His majesty, His power and especially His faithfulness to those who put their trust in Him. This is a place of perfect peace and joy in His Presence.

If something “moves” you, there is most often a root cause of fear behind it.

It will also cause physical "upset" in the form of anxiety, stress, high blood pressure, palpitations, etc. And this is something we cannot afford. So let's deal with it and get it rooted out!

Ask the Lord to show you where your fears originate from and let Him come into that place to heal and restore. Repentance and forgiveness will take you into the healing of the blood of Jesus where the enemy has no foothold. Then resist the spirit of fear and he will flee from you as you submit to God’s loving reign over your life. Remember, perfect love casts out all fear! 

Receive your peace and move on, looking away from the problem unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:1-3). Put your trust in Him, rejoicing in the fact that He holds your life and circumstances in His hand!  Hallelujah!

STRESS IS A THIEF!

Lesson 51  

Stress is the number one cause of so many illnesses today in our modern, fast-paced world. In other words, a thief!

But, in the Kingdom of God we can live in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. What a contrast to stress!
It is as simple as the choice to refocus your mind on the Lord, for then you will live in perfect peace. (Is.26:3)

Stress-free living is so easy, once you have entered into His rest. Knowing that worry will not change anything, neither trying to work it out with your limited mind, which cannot see the solution from God's point of view. So why worry and stress if it is an exercise of futility?

Simply hand over the issues that concern you into His mighty hand, putting your trust in Him to work out every detail of your life for your good. Again, peace and rest is the result. (Matt.11:28-30) Now you can worship Him in faith that He will make a way for you - even if there seems to be no way!

When your mind is at rest, your emotions are joyful and your body relaxes. What a beautiful place to live in the Kingdom culture!

Your Heart condition determines the condition of your Bones?

Lesson 50

“A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22) 
When Lazarus died, Martha’ pre-occupation with the facts prevented her to receive the full provision in the Word of the Lord, saying “I am the resurrection and the life”.
Jubilee Bible 2000
“Jesus said unto her, Did I not say unto thee that if thou wouldest believe thou shalt see the glory of God?”
When we lift our gaze, looking away from the natural into the all-inclusive provision of the abundant Life in Christ, we engage with His miracle power that is available by faith.
Having your heart filled with the consciousness of what you don’t have, can’t afford, won’t ever be able to do, etc creates a poverty mindset, causing you to go into a downward spiral. Out of this abundance of negativity, the mouth speaks, cursing your future with failure, lack, and destruction. But when you look “away” unto Jesus, attaching your faith to His promises, you can switch to the abundance of His provision in Christ, according to the riches of His glory.
I once was a captive to the mindset of poverty, and only being able to see what I didn’t have, I continually spoke into existence exactly that which I didn’t want. I never realized it until someone told me that I had a poverty mindset. To say the least, I was not impressed but thought that this lady had great audacity to say that to me. By the grace of God,

I took a hard look at myself and realized that she was right! The truth shocked me out of my self-made prison house and as I listened to myself speaking, I could hear the destruction and death that came out of my mouth, creating the exact opposite of what I desired.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” (Prov.18:21). Ouch! Suddenly the sword of the Lord cut through my blinders, separating flesh and spirit, joints and marrow and penetrated right through to my heart.
Now it was decision time to choose to see as God sees and to speak only the Word of God, which has life in it.
I had an eye opener, but I had to be renewed in the spirit of my mind. Then to undo the damage I have done by my speech, empowering the enemy to steal from me and my household. A turnaround was imminent!
The abundance of life is a gift, purchased with the precious blood of Jesus. This requires open eyes of our understanding to see what He has made available for us – a life of victory by the power of the Holy Spirit.
And of course, then it requires action on our part to receive it for ourselves. We simply have to tap into His glorious supply by faith, stepping out of the fleshly, limited thinking into the Spirit-supply, the mind of Christ, training the tongue under His power to be used as a creative force of life for His glory! Hallelujah
When our mindset switches to the status of abundance in Christ, it becomes a magnet for well-being – also in our physical bodies. A spring comes into your step and your physical body receives a new sound frequency – the sound of victory and joy, which is like medicine to the bones.

KINGDOM HARVEST

Lesson 49

Galatians 6:7-9 King James Version (KJV)
"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."

It is so important that we sow to the spirit in order to reap life. If you sow to the dictates of the flesh, you will reap corruption - also in your body. 

The Word is like a seed, an incorruptible seed - first planted in the soil of our hearts and then growing and bearing fruit according to the measure virtue and diligence that we add to it.

As we meditate on the Word, praying over it until it becomes substance in our innermost being, it becomes our reality. Then, as we sow the Word into our circumstances prophetically, declaring it against all odds, believing and calling forth the manifestation thereof, it shall be come a fruitful harvest!

Speaking the Word of God over our physical bodies, brings it in alignment with the frequency of the Word, bringing healing and restoration and miracles!  

Colossians 3:16 New King James Version (NKJV)

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

WHOLENESS IN OUR SOULS

Lesson 48
The degree of wholeness of your soul can be measured by the measure of peace and joy that you
walk in - in spite of the storms that swirl around you. 

Being rooted and  grounded in God's unfathomable love provides the perfect shelter against the storms of life. It is our dwelling place where we abide in His presence under the shadow of His wings. 

If you have been tossed around by the winds of adversity, come and get still in His presence where Love reigns. This is the place where we are strengthened by the Spirit to rise up in authority against the enemy of our souls, subduing him by the power of the blood and the name of Jesus, bringing the Kingdom of heaven into our situations for the glory of our Lord! Hallelujah!

RESTORE!

Lesson 47



I was in worship recently when the Word “Restore” came so strongly in my spirit.
Restore synonyms: reinstate, bring back, reinstitute, reimpose, reinstall, reestablish.






RESTORE!  From the inside out!

God wants to restore Kingdom in you: righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost!
Test yourself on this: Am I walking in the fulness of each aspect of the Kingdom?
How does restoration happen? When our faith connects to the Rhema Word of the Lord in worship. Then we hand over everything into His mighty Hand of power, putting our trust completely in Him to restore everything in our lives that was stolen and destroyed, calling it forth and rejoicing in it!
I started looking up the Word in Scriptures and it became a victory shout!
Joel 2: 25-26   And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
This scripture talks about the destruction of the enemy, but also of the abundant provision of the Lord (John 10:10):
Restoration of hearts, of brokenness, of disappointments and woundedness.
Restoration to God as your loving Father, Jesus as your high priest, Holy Spirit as your guide, Teacher, Comforter.
Restoration of Vision and purpose and destiny.
God will restore injustices as the righteous Judge.  His throne is built on righteousness and justice.
WHATSOEVER has been lost or stolen from you by the enemy - be it your possessions, opportunities, relationships, or anything else, God is the One who restores when we put our trust in Him!
Be restored in your true identity and authority in Christ.
Maybe you have missed it somewhere, made the wrong decision and things didn’t work out. Stop blaming yourself or others!  Ask God to forgive you, forgive others and most of all, forgive yourself! Be restored in your true identity.

HOW SELF-HATRED and SELF-REJECTION AFFECTS YOUR HEALTH:

I have ministered to three people in two days on the topic of being mad at themselves for having made wrong choices, feeling guilty and breaking themselves down in self-accusation.   Rejecting yourself, makes you your own worst enemy!  This will also affect your health! In two of these instances there were skin issues. 

Self-hatred can also cause overweight and auto-immune diseases.

Come back to the Lord and receive His forgiveness through repentance.  Then forgive yourself and be restored in the liberty of the Spirit.

God is restoring your soul (wounds) of abandanment and your health.
Jeremiah 30:17 - For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, [saying], This [is] Zion, whom no man seeketh after.
Restoration of the joy of your salvation.
After having committed adultery and murder, King David prayed:
Psalms 51:12 - Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit.
Shame and confusion will be restored with double recompense:
Isaiah 61:7 - For your shame [ye shall have] double; and [for] confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.
Zech.9:11-12: DOUBLE RESTORATION!
As for you, because of the blood of My covenant, I will release your prisoners from the waterless pit. Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; even today I declare that I will restore to you double.
Lean into the provision of Calvary!
Grace upon grace and strength upon strength in the double!
OPEN THE DOUBLE DOORS, LORD - IN JESUS’ NAME!
1 Cor.2:9: What the eye has not seen, the ear has not heard and has not come up in the mind of men, God has prepared for those who love Him.
The good news is that God not only wants to restore what was stolen from us but bless us with double as in the case of Job.
God told David at Ziklag:  Go and recover all!
Get strengthened in your faith by praying in tongues and access this promise of restoration!
Healing, recompense, restoration is yours as you believe the Word of the Lord!
God want to restore your soul:   beauty for ashes, oil of joy for morning, garments of praise for a spirit of heaviness.
God wants to restore your waste places as you come into His Presence - being transformed through light and truth
He will restore your mind - to know your true identity and authority in Christ!
Grab hold of this Word, Restore, and speak it into every area of your life for God’s glory as you worship the Lord in His glory!

LIVING STRESS-FREE

Lesson 46

"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health,
 even as thy soul prospereth." 
3 John 2(KJV)



There is a clear understanding here that the state of our soul is deeply linked to our health.
From this lesson onwards we are going to focus on the state of our souls in relation to sickness and disease.


God's perfect will for us is that we walk in health and in this scripture He gives us the key: See to it that your soul prospers! After we have appropriated God's provision for healing if we are sick, we need to maintain soul health in order to keep our healing.
The soul consists of the mind, emotions and will.  
The Word also states that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he (Prov. 23:7). This implies that the condition of your body is directly related to the state of your soul. Sickness is imbalance, dis-ease, lack of peace and "soundness". 
Let us start with the greatest enemy of our well-being, which is stress. Some would say that stress is inevitable, yet if you look closely it is very intricately related to the mind and we have the ability to choose what we think and how we react. We stress because there is an underlying element of fear that things will not work out the way we think they should and are especially time-related. We stress because we put ourselves under pressure to reach the deadline in time. We stress because we fear the opinions and reactions of others.
Negative thinking patterns have a chain effect, affecting the emotions; then show up in our behavior patterns and from there it has affect on the adrenal glands, which in turn secrete toxins which have a damaging effect on the body.
Heart diseases are mostly related to stress and fear; so is high blood pressure, nervous disorders, digestive disorders and many others.
Some other mind-sets that are related to the spirit of fear, are rejection, self-rejection, fear of rejection, fear of man, phobias, fear of the unknown, fear of death and many more. 
Self-rejection works against yourself and becomes your worst enemy, often resulting in auto-immune diseases. 
"God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind." 2 Tim.1:7
Take some time out, get still before God and wait on Him to give you His divine perspective on your life-style.  
If you discover bad habits of allowing stress to "get" to you or causing yourself to be stressed because you squeeze too many things into a short period of time, rethink!  Is this rectifiable by a few tweaks?
Mostly it is! Adopting a life-style where you intentionally give yourself more time to finish a project, taking the pressure off and also intentionally enjoy what you are doing, you are going to do yourself and your health a big favor. Simply refuse to live under pressure. Choose to relax, laugh and take time to enjoy the things and the people around you - experiencing the love of Father God, living a life of worship.
Tension in relationships come when things are not working out the way you expected. Simply remove demands and expectations from others and give the unexpected disappointments and frustrations to the Lord. Let Him take care of it and refuse to get upset about anything! Worry and stress do not change a thing, but it is very detrimental to your health and that is something you cannot afford. Therefore, opt out of it!  It is a quality decision, but something that will need discipline of the mind. If you let go, let go!  Don't pick it up again! 
"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
Phil.4:6-7

Adopt a new habit of releasing all your worries, concerns, fear, anxiety and stress to the Lord. Pray earnestly for Him to take care of it, thanking Him for it. Now leave it in His hand, putting your trust in Him to work it out. Then, if you think about it again, start praising Him to work it all together for good because of your love for Him. You will experience a wonderful peace in your heart and mind.

FERVENT LOVE FROM A PURE HEART

Lesson 45

"Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently” (1 Pet.2:22)


It is amazing how easily we can take offense or react negatively to the ungodly behavior of others, forgetting that the enemy’s prime purpose is to steal, kill and destroy.  This he can easily accomplish by contaminating us with an offense, which leads to bitterness and anger - becoming a stronghold in our minds that can become an impregnable fortress. 


This will inevitably hinder our prayers and open our lives for backlash from the enemy to steal from us.

It is important that we take time every evening before bed to ask the Holy Spirit to show us anything that has contaminated us during the day. Then, in obedience to the truth, we can purify our souls unto unfeigned love of the brethren (by repentance and forgiveness) - choosing to love everyone unconditionally with a pure heart - fervently!


Sometimes it is hard to get past our negative perceptions, but when we choose to obey the commandment of love, the Holy Spirit enables us to walk in the freedom of love from a pure heart.


It is a costly thing to hang on to bitterness and unforgiveness:

Matthew 6:15 "But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.  



So help us, Lord to live in love - well pleasing to You!

Whatever you behold will become the vision from which you live



 Lesson 44
As you identify the negative pictures of people and situations that you carry in your consciousness, choose to get God’s picture of His intended purposes and shift your gaze to behold His vision by faith. Then call it forth until it manifests!

Shift your gaze from negative pictures to God’s vision, lifting your spirit into faith for HIs glory manifestation.

WHOLENESS
