The Disease of Leprosy

Lesson 59



Not many of us have seen a leper. But there is a disease of leprosy running rampant - not only in the secular section of society, but amongst Christians - brothers and sisters in the Lord.
It is interesting to find the cause of Miriam’s leprosy in Numbers 12:
Apart from slandering Moses, the anointed of the Lord, there was also a matter of pride involved, which is always the case when someone is a slanderer or a gossiper. The judgment of God was leprosy! Wow! That is something we truly need to ponder upon and repent of if we are guilty of the same thing. 

Psalm 105:15 "Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm." 

Sometimes we wonder why we are cast out, so to speak “outside the camp” (of HIs Presence). It might be God’s judgment on our tongues, which mark us a UNCLEAN"!  If we read Numbers 12, we see that God departed from the temple! 

When the Prophet, Isaiah encountered the manifest presence of the Lord (Isaiah 6), it was the first thing he was convicted of: The uncleanness of his lips and those of the people around him.

Talking behind someone's back, listening to the slander of others, believing the worst of another and then judging him/her, is a serious offense in the eyes of the Lord, causing His presence to depart.

God always has the Provision ready when we repent. So, let us do so and ask for the cleaning coal from the altar to have our mouths purified, declaring with David,

"I said, “I will guard my ways That I may not sin with my tongue; I will muzzle my mouth while the wicked are in my presence.” Psalm 39:1


"Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be well-pleasing in Thy sight, Oh Lord!"

AVOIDING “PILE-UPS”

Lesson 58


While in worship I had a vision of different layers in the mind and emotions, going down even into cellular level.


The Lord was showing me that, as we come in contact with different people and situations during the day, we receive different impressions that “pile up” over our minds and emotions in layers of different intensities, causing stress levels to build up – even unto cellular level - until we feel overwhelmed with too much to cope with. We can cover up our stressful state with a faƧade, but sooner or later (when the pressure gets too much), the true colors of our mind and emotions will be exposed and we will reach breaking point.

This is totally unnecessary, as the wonderful provision of the Lord is to “unload” these things, processing it one by one in His Presence, as they come. In so doing, we avoid pile-ups and we are constantly being renewed in the spirit of our minds, so that we never need to be overwhelmed mentally or emotionally, or suffer the effects of stress on cellular levels.

The secret place is where we not only unload, releasing the things which affect us negatively, but also the place of strengthening in His Presence to be endowed with divine wisdom through the Word of the Lord, and empowered with the dunamis of the Spirit. This is our portion and our inheritance in Christ: the resurrection power of the Spirit - to apply into every situation, seeing strongholds shatter!

Of course, this is why there is such an assault on our quiet times with the Lord. If the enemy can steal our time with God, he also steals our peace and joy, for in the natural we simply do not have the ability or the strength to overcome his vicious assaults on our minds and emotions.

When we are burdened with the cares of this world, we cannot hear God’s voice, so we are literally operating in the wisdom and strength of man. This will not bring us anywhere.

Therefore, let us set our faces like flint, making it our goal to seek God’s face every day, sometimes several times a day, to live from His presence and in His power – not only for ourselves, but to bring His “now” word into every situation, shining the light of the Kingdom glory into every situation as a way of life, maintaining righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.  Hallelujah!

SLEEPLESSNESS?


Lesson 57


It’s amazing how many adverts and articles we come across that emphasize sleeplessness as though it is the norm.

The culprit is not noise or lights or such as much as it is the fact that most people do not take time to release the happenings of the day to the Lord.

When your mind is swimming with the busyness of the day, it is hard to come into a place of rest and peace.

Sleeplessness is robbing many of the much-needed refreshing and restoration that comes from a good night’s rest and when your body is fatigued, there are many side factors that are detrimental to your health.

So, take the time to unload the traumas, conflicts, worries and stresses of the day before you retire. Let the Holy Spirit shine His light into areas which need to be washed with the blood of the Lamb because of negative words, attitudes, behaviors of yourself and others.

Take communion and tune to the Spirit, praying in tongues and prepare yourself with the expectation to have communion with heaven in your dreams.

Sweet dreams to you!

THE WAY OF TRUST – ENTERING INTO HIS REST.

Lesson 56



Most of our problems in life stem from the fact that we do not want to give up the old Adam-nature.

As long as we feel “in charge” of a situation, we feel that we are on the winning side, but the moment we feel that we lose control over something, all of the old nature rises up in a fight for life.

Ironically the Word of God says that if we want to keep our life, we shall lose it and only when we lose it for the sake of Christ, we shall save it. (Luke 9: 23-24). The life is in the soul and this is the area that we need to bring under subjection to the Spirit of the living God, letting Him be Lord in all situations, putting all our trust in Him to bring our situations in Kingdom order where righteousness, peace and joy reign!  

This brings all our wild emotions, fretful mind and obstinate will to a place of rest and peace and is a matter of total trust in the faithfulness of God.  

Do we really trust the Lord with all our issues? Or do we still want to have a handle on it, taking it into our own hands, trying to work it out with our own “cleverness”?

What an amazing freedom awaits the one who truly surrenders his life to the Lord! It frees you from the curse of self-power and brings the whole of heaven in action on your behalf!

And what an exchange! His glorious, triumphant life for our little self-efforts, which avail to nothing!

Bringing the soul in subjection to the Spirit, is the first step to union with God.

PRAYER: Dear heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name I ask that You give me the grace to hand over every issue in my life into Your mighty hand! As I am doing so now, surrendering my will, my emotions and my mind to You, let Your will be done in my difficult situations as it is in heaven and let Your name be glorified!
I receive your peace, Lord Jesus, resting in Your goodness and grace!  Hallelujah!

Jer.17:1-10/Matt.11:28-30/Phil.4:6/Luke 9:23-24/Rom.14:17/john 17.

LIVING IN HIS REST


Lesson 55


“Take therefore no thought for the morrow; for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself” Matthew 6:34

Most people know that heart problems, nervous disorders, ulcers any a myriad other diseases originate mostly from stress, yet they keep on stressing about things of tomorrow. 

The way of the Kingdom culture is so easy, unencumbered and uncomplicated. We simply have to enter into the rest of the Lord, leaning on Him and learn to flow with the Holy Spirit.

Therefore, intentionally release all stress, anxiety and worry to the Lord and He will give you rest. 

Living each day to its full potential in the peace and joy of the Lord is a glorious lifestyle in His presence without any anxiety, stress or pressure, doing our daily tasks by the power of the Spirit under His guidance and for His glory. Hallelujah!

The Spirit vs the Flesh

Lesson 54



Romans 8:5-6 King James Version (KJV)


5 “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace”

The flesh leans on its own power and its own wisdom. 

It is the performance of man to feel good about himself in order to get the approval of man. It is also competitive and causes you to be striving in self power to be someone, to build a name for yourself and to have fame.

This puts your whole being in stress mode, but your nervous system will surely suffer, contracting disease.

This is of course contrary to the way of the Spirit, where we lean on His wisdom and understanding.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.” Prov. 3:4-5

It is so easy when you are led by the Spirit, not fulfilling the lust of the flesh. Life becomes a song, without striving and stress. - simply flowing in the power of the Spirit. 

Your body is energized by the Spirit with His resurrection power and you can enjoy your life fully without worry, stress and fear. Divine health is your portion and God is glorified!

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.
