Better than good greetings, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
I believe church was awesome today with the Father’s, Son’s & the Holy Spirit’s Presence, & the Sent Word for your total comforts, spiritual uplifting & progressive promotion?
Glory to Jesus, forever!
At King’s Delight Church Global this morning, we examined three more questions crucial to our Total Health as we continued in our teaching series: TOTAL HEALTH IS MINE!
1. What are you looking for?
What you look for determines what you see – Jeremiah 1.11-12:
11 “Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree”.
12 “Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it”.
Also, we see the example of our Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ, in Luke 4.17-19:
17 “And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written”,
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised”,
19 “To preach the acceptable year of the Lord”.
If you don’t know what to look for, everything & anything you see will look like it, & nothing is more frustrating like assumptions, particularly when they are wrong.
God’s Power is released for performance when you know & find what you’re looking for in His predetermined way – Acts 10.38:
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him”.
Look for God’s Word for your TOTAL HEALTH & stop looking for OPTIONS! Jeremiah 15.16:
“Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts”;
20 “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings”.
21 “Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart”.
22 “For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh”.
The Word of God is the major active ingredient of your creation, & whatever creates, sustains – Genesis 1.26-28; Deuteronomy 8.3; Matthew 4.4:
26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth”.
27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them”.
28 “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth”.
Don’t be like the river that forgets its source, it’ll soon dry up…, you won’t dry up, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
Deuteronomy 8.3: “And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live”.
Matthew 4.4: “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God”.
Always look for the SENT WORD – Psalm 107.20: “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions”.
Romans 8.11: “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you”.
2. Who do you believe in?
Who you believe in determines the kind of power that flows in & works for you – Hebrews 4.2:
“For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it”.
28 “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God”?
“For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it”.
God’s Word is for our PROFIT as His children but we only get the PROFIT, including TOTAL HEALTH, when we act in obedience to the Word.
29 “Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent”.
16 “When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick”:
17 “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses”.
1 Peter 2.24: “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed”.
Psalm 107.20: “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions”.
Who you believe in determines what you partake of in life – 2 Chronicles 20.20:
“And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper”.
Matthew 10.41: “He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward”.
Philippians 1.7: “Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace”.
Don’t be deceived & deluded, except you partake of the grace of people who Jesus has SENT OVER your life, you’ll be limited in partaking of your inheritance among the saints in the light – Acts 20.32: “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified”.
Ephesians 4.11-12,14-15; Colossians 2.19:
11 “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers”;
12 “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ”:
14 “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive”;
15 “But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ”:
Colossians 2.19(Weymouth’s New Testament translation):
2.19 “Such a one does not keep his hold upon Christ, the Head, from whom the Body, in all its parts nourished and strengthened by its points of contact and its connections, grows with a divine growth”.
Did you notice how the Holy Spirit tells us on: “…in ALL ITS PARTS NOURISHED & STRENGTHENED BY ITS POINTS OF CONTACT & ITS CONNECTIONS, GROWS WITH A DIVINE GROWTH”?
Beloved, everything is going on better than good, very speedily, easily, peacefully, in a very grand style & colours for me, because I’m a product of graces, His manifold grace – 2 Peter 4.10:
“As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God” – & other graces, as Paul stated in Philippians 1.7:
“Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace”.
It is true that because you’re born again, you have the Anointing, the Holy Spirit in you, Who teaches you all things – 1 John 2.20,27 – however, it is your maturity level that determines what you understand of what He teaches, & understanding determines how easy & well things go for you in life – Proverbs 13.15:
“Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard”.
Rivers flow downwards & not upwards, likewise, the Anointing flows downwards & not upwards, that’s how the Wisdom of God designed it – Psalm 133:
1 “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity”!
2 “It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments”;
3 “As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore”.
Also, in Hebrews 7.7, the Wisdom of God tells us: “And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better”.
These are eternal principles that no one must attempt to alter!
Did you observe how our Lord & Saviour, Jesus, though anointed without measure, still humbled Himself to be more graced? Luke 9.29-31:
29 “And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering”.
30 “And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias”:
31 “Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem”.
Beloved, accomplishments in life are only possible without stress for partakers of graces – God’s manifold grace; & the grace of others SENT over you.
It is time to stop struggling & suffering & start accomplishing your glorious, golden & royal destiny & purpose without sweat & in TOTAL HEALTH!
5 “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus”:
6 “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God”:
7 “But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men”:
8 “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross”.
9 “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name”:
10 “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth”;
11 “And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”.
12 “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”.
13 “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure”.
14 “Do all things without murmurings and disputings”:
15 “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world”;
16 “Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain”.
3. What are you saying?
Naturally, everyone voices out what he believes deep down in his heart, & that’s why arguments always come up because someone’s opinion defers from the other person’s belief, no matter the logic.
As children of God, therefore, it is very pertinent to be acquainted with, be filled with our Father’s Word to the point of conviction that spurs us to heavenly action on any issue, including our TOTAL HEALTH! Colossians 3.16:
“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”.
Faith, genuine faith, God’s kind of faith, Christlike faith must move the possessor to heavenly action: Hebrews 11.4-8,16-17,27-30:
4 “By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh”.
5 “By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God”.
6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”.
7 “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith”.
8 “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went”.
16 “But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city”.
17 “By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son”,
27 “By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible”.
28 “Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them”.
29 “By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned”.
30 “By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days”.
Beloved, faith people are movers, not just shakers!
They move in obedience to God’s Word they have received through preaching, studying, meditation & revelation…, they don’t deceive themselves – James 1.22; 2.24,26:
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves”;
24 “Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only”.
26 “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also”.
Speaking the Word of faith is a major indicator of your faith life – 2 Corinthians 4.13:
“We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak”;
You can’t truly believe in TOTAL HEALTH & be speaking sickness & neither can you believe in financial/material abundance & be speaking lack, or you can’t be speaking hatred when you believe in love, you can’t speak doubt & fear when you believe in faith, you can’t speak defeat when you believe in triumph, you can’t speak suffering when you believe in His comforts!
Our Father always speaks what He believes – Romans 4.17:
“(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were”.
We are to be & do like Him.
Joel 3.10: “Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong”.
Isaiah 33.24: “And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity”.
Micah 6.1: “Hear ye now what the LORD saith; Arise, contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice”.
Revelation 12.11: ” And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death”.
In the school of faith, you’re only permitted to have what you say – Mark 11.22-23:
22 “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God”.
23 “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith”.
How then do you move with & in faith?
1 Timothy 4.8:
“For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come”.
You must take grace to consciously & deliberately exercise your divine nature, the Father’s Nature that you now have, possess at New Birth, when you received Jesus as Saviour & Lord – 1 John 5.13; John 17.2-3:
1 John 5.13: “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God”.
2 “As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him”.
3 “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent”.
Your salvation in God through Jesus is to bring you gains, already settled, procured, purchased for you by the suffering, death & resurrection of our Lord & Saviour, Jesus, including TOTAL HEALTH, packaged for you in what the Word of God calls the BETTER THINGS THAT ACCOMPANY SALVATION – Hebrews 6.9:
“But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak” – summarized in Revelation 5.12 as power, riches, wisdom, STRENGTH, honour, glory, blessing:
“Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing”.
Our Father’s Nature, entire Life, is LOVE – 1 John 4.8,16:
8 “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love”.
16 “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him”.
Walk & live in LOVE, saying what LOVE says, doing what LOVE does, loving what LOVE loves, hating what LOVE hates, BEING MOTIVATED BY LOVE, that is, wholly AGREEING & COOPERATING WITH LOVE, WHO IS YOUR FATHER!
You EXERCISE in LOVE, in the FATHER, in GODLINESS until it becomes your LIFESTYLE!
When you put a little child of about 6 months old on a bed to sleep, & he wakes up, he’ll cry to get attention because he can’t leave the bed but if he was the one who went up there by himself, he’ll find his way out because he has exercised himself!
I am too sure that your entire life, including your TOTAL HEALTH will always be BETTER THAN GOOD, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
This is your week of SUPERNATURAL ENCOUNTERS, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
JESUS IS LORD!
