Are you really sick? Part.1

Wow! Have you ever had one of those moments where something grabs a hold of your attention, leaves you in a tailspin and then you wonder if everyone else is observing what you're observing?

Well, recently I was more than alarm as it relates to the rapid increase of Cancer in my country and by extension the world. It is almost as if everywhere you turn someone is either diagnosed, dying or has died as a result of this dreaded disease. As if that wasn't enough, immediately behind Cancer you also have the other rapidly increasing diseases such as, diabetes, hypertension, and so many other common illnesses. Not to mention the strange strains of the flu, AIDS, dengue fever and so many uncommon illnesses.

Now at some point, you must ask yourself the question, what in the world is going on? Well, I am sure most of you reading this would immediately resort to our unhealthy eating habits coupled with the lack of exercise, which I certainly agree play an important part in this mystery.

However, in today’s teaching I would love for you, my many readers to indulge me for a few minutes as I venture to travel in an entirely different area of understanding to unveil this profound mystery.

In Luke 13:11-16, the Bible gives an interesting account of a woman that was sick for eighteen years. Scripture further records how Jesus Christ eventually had an encounter with this woman and she was healed as a result of their encounter. Question! Was this woman really sick? Well let’s discover for ourselves based on this particular scripture and I am certain it will provide spiritual insight in terms of the myriad of diseases we are challenged with today and the true origin of them.

“And behold there was a woman, which had a “SPIRIT OF INFIRMITY” for eighteen years, and was bowed together,(She could not stand erect, she was bent over) and could in no wise lift up her head”. Now, I am sure many of you read this scripture any number of times and never really focused on what was really being said here? Firstly, this lady physical appearance gave the impression to the average person that she was really sick. Nevertheless, scripture clearly states that this woman’s “physical sickness” was as a result of a spirit (spirits are disembodied beings) that was mimicking this particular ailment. In fact, scripture goes on to say that when Jesus saw her he said, “Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity” He then laid his hand on her and immediately she stood straight and glorified God.

So what really happened and can this be done today? The truth is my friend this is nothing new in our world today. In fact I will take it a step further. In countries and communities throughout the world where there is an overwhelming practice of the occult mainly witchcraft, the practitioners of witchcraft would literally send a curse of sickness to their victim which are evil spirits assigned to mimicking a particular disease in its human host. The reality is this curse, which again, are evil spirits assigned to the victim, has influence the victim's mind and spirit to such a degree that this person’s physical body begin to display the symptoms of whatever disease is being perpetrated in its victim. In some cases the person will smell foul odors seemingly coming from themselves that no one else can smell, see things on their skin that no one else can see. In extreme cases the victim would literally feel things crawling or moving in their bodies such as snakes, crabs, etc. Again, it’s a spiritual attack of witchcraft on that person mind and spirit that is very much real to them and anyone that is knowledgeable of the spirit world. Eventually the victim would stop complaining about it, due to them taking on the assumption that others believe they're crazy, and begin to take on a recluse attitude. Of course this is exactly what the intent of the curse is all about and that is to isolate its victim and advance its attack on its victim to bring about their demise.

Now, I am fully aware that for some of you reading this, it may sound like a scene out of a horror film but I can assure you that the reality of this is by far greater than you can possibly imagine. Folks that are oppressed by this “spirit of infirmity” will display all the physical signs of a certain illness, however, when they do decide to visit a Doctor, even the Doctor’s are confused. Simply because even though the Patient’s symptoms are pointing them in the area of a certain diagnosis, nevertheless, the medical test that they perform on the patient will display no sign of what is seemingly the illness. Well, this is easy to explain, and the explanation is, spirits do not and can not show up in medical test! Thus, the labeling of it, SPIRIT OF INFIRMITY!

What is even more amazing; this “spirit of infirmity” went unnoticed by the religious leaders of Jesus’ day, can you imagine that? Scripture further records in Luke 13:14, that the rulers of the synagogue (leaders of the church) was filled with indignation towards Jesus for actually healing this woman on the Sabbath day……….. Now isn't this incredible? For eighteen years this lady suffered while attending church, giving offerings, paying her tithes, being prayed for over and over again. Anointed with oils, attending conference after conference and absolutely none of the “spiritual folks” were able to heal her or even diagnose her with this spirit of infirmity. Would you believe that these same leaders were more concern about their traditions of the Sabbath Day than this woman receiving some type of relief? Now, doesn't this Speak volumes of present day religions organizations, lots of talk and promises with little to no manifestation?

In any event, could the root of your poor health, in reality be as a result of a spirit of infirmity or a generational curse that is in your family, which the spirit of infirmity also rules? Okay! So you're not sure! Well let’s perform a spiritual diagnosis. Didn't your grandmother died from cancer?, your mom died from cancer? now you have been diagnosed with cancer; have you connect the dots as yet? Well, I am sure you would have to agree it’s at least generational and I am certain if you look further into your family lineage you'll discover more of your family members who have died as a result of a SPIRIT and not a real physical illness. Is it possible these folks could have been here with us today, had someone with spiritual insight addressed the SPIRIT instead of the SYMPTOMS?

In Luke 13:15-16, scripture now begins to divulge more detailed information as to who this woman was and what was really going on with her. Jesus began to defend the rights of this woman to be healed on the Sabbath day to the leaders of the church (synagogue). Jesus said, “And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham (Indicating that she was a believer and follower of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob etc. in today’s understanding she was a Christian). Whom Satan had bound, for eighteen years, be loosed from this bound on the Sabbath? To further prove the point that she did not have a physical sickness, scripture clearly stated that Satan had bound her for eighteen years. Satan is a spirit right? So it’s also understood that Satan did not physically show up and bound her, so what did he bind up?  Well the fact are he bound her spirit and her mind that ultimately manifested itself in her physical body…….. Is it possible you could be a victim of this evil spirit?
So, with the above information and revelation in mind, are your religious leaders and prayer partners while praying concerning your sickness, specifically addressing this spirit or are they doing the usual such as screaming, shouting, pouring oils all over you BUT NEVER EVER DEALING WITH THE ROOT WHICH WILL ALWAYS BE A SPIRIT!

Join me in the conclusion of this eye opening revelation as we continue with part two of “Are you really sick” on Thursday.........

AGE DOES NOT ALWAYS EQUAL MATURITY!!

Threescore and ten years, which equates to 70 years really isn't much time when compared to the time of Adam and Eve and the generations after who lived to be some 300, 600, 800 and up to 900 plus years.

20+20+20+10=70, when viewed from this perspective, let us be honest with ourselves and analyze our lives. What have we done or been doing for the first 20 years of our lives? If you're forty, then what have you done with the 20+20 years of your life. If you're sixty then what have you done with 20+20+20 years of your life? For those of us that are approaching 70 years and over after doing an extensive inventory of your life, what can you say your impacting contribution were?

The purpose of this post this morning is simply this, from time to time I scan through the many posting on Facebook and compare the myriad of conversations that I have with folks on a daily bases and I've unfortunately discovered that there are folks that are in theirs 30s, 40s, 50s and older but think and behave as if they're children in terms of their thinking, conversations, actions, still seeking revenge, vendettas and the like.

F
or example I was in a conversation with someone in their sixties and the hate and bitterness that spewed from them concerning someone else was nauseating to say the least. However, I have had conversations with folks in their late teens and mid twenties who seemed to be so advance in their thinking and behavior, that if I didn't know better I would think these folks were much older in age than they appeared.

What is my point in all of this you may ask? Well, my point is, I have discovered and concluded that it doesn't matter how old a person maybe in numbers or in appearance, the reality is a person's mental growth in terms of maturity is stunned or remains dormant if they REFUSE TO FORGIVE!

My study of this awesome revelation has revealed to me that forgiveness is the key if one truly desires to move on in life or make true progress in terms of mental maturity as it relates to their current age. Suggesting that age should be accompanied with maturity.

This is one of the reasons why you find folks such as grandparents advising their children and grandchildren to seek revenge on those that have done them wrong. This is so because the grandparent had never forgave that person or persons that have done them wrong. So as a result of that they never matured or grew mentally, instead they have become stucked in that era! And is currently passing the baton to the up and coming generations...shm (shake my head).

I
want to say to someone this morning, you're feeling of being cheated, your anger, hostility and the likes could very well be as a result of you never moving on or maturing mentally. This has produced the mystery as to what has happened to you, meaning you're a 50 or 60 year old with a 20 year old mentality.

My words of wisdom to you this wonderful morning is simply this, trials, challenges, difficulties, disappointments, setbacks and delays will always be the inevitable. However, more importantly they are invitations issued by life to mature you for the next level of your life. Your refusal to accept these invitations and learn from them makes you irrelevant as it relate to your current age and current times. At the same time the purpose of these invitations are to encourage you to master the art of forgiveness that will always make you relevant to current times. The bottoms line my friend FORGIVENESS UNLOCKS THE FUTURE WHILE UNFORGIVENESS CONCEALS IT!

WHY ARE YOU WASTING TIME WITH YOUR TEMPORARY?

Life is a beautiful thing, which I truly thank God for, especially when one learns from their mistakes. However it is unfortunate for some of us that we have to make several mistakes to get the full understanding of whatever it is we should be learning.

This article is about making what should have been a temporary relationship into a permanent one. My aim and object is to show you the purpose of a temporary relationship, why it should not be a permanent one, the damage it does when it becomes one and finally the signs of a temporary relationship.

The majority of us at one time or another have had more than one relationship, and for the most part when we take a glance back in time we thank God that we did not make those people whom we thought, we were in love with our lifetime mates. Nevertheless some of us do marry the temporaries and are presently living unhappy lives or should I say incomplete lives.

Like my previous articles it is my desire to use biblical principle as the foundation, and build my points upon that. The scripture that I will be using is (2cor 2:18) in this scripture Paul is preaching to the people in Corinth and this is what he had to say, “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Every relationship that you would have encountered throughout your life should be viewed as building blocks to your ultimate relationship, which would be your husband or wife. For the most part, people that jump into relationship and immediately get married, without considering if that relationship was suppose to be permanent or temporary, they are possibly in for a rude awakening.

I make the comparison of relationships to schooling. Just like school, each class gives you enough information for that particular time, because no one class teaches you everything. It prepares you for the next class you will eventually move to, and at the end of all your classes you will then hopefully graduate. Well, relationships are no different, each one was intended for you not only to enjoy, but most importantly to learn from, and prepare you for your life long relationship with your husband or wife.

History will show that people with little to no experience in relationships are more likely to make poor decisions as opposed to people that have more experience with relationships. I want to place importance on experience here because it is vital to what I am about to say next.

You see because we are creatures of comparison it is crucially significant that we gain much experience or knowledge in whatever it is that we are about to venture into. What I mean by creatures of comparison is simply this: whatever decision we select in life we’ve compare it either to a former experience or someone else’s experience, then we make a decision, it is almost like we go into our memory archives and pull out a file that is remotely close to whatever it is we are dealing with at that time and go from there. For instance, if you had a bad relationship where your partner cheated and you decided to end that relationship and go into another, if your new partner does anything that remotely reminds you of what your ex did to you, immediately you throw yourself into a defensive mode. Why? Because again you automatically begin to compare your past experience with you present relationship.

So my point here is; that the quality of your decision making is purely based on the experiences that you have had in that particular area which you are making a decision on. If you have ample experience, chances are you would make a more sound decision as oppose to no experience, your judgment is more likely to be impaired.

People are normally entrapped by their temporary mate’s permanently, because of what they see on the outside. They are caught up by the surface, they are bound or should we say held hostage by their five senses (see, smell, taste, hear, touch) which when left unchallenged can place us in a state of misery. This is why Paul said, “set not your eyes on the things that you see” or things that are governed by your five senses, because these things are subject to change and are in fact changing before your very eyes, but focus on what you don’t see, or what is possibly being kept from you such as that person’s character, which is permanent or eternal like Paul said.

A person’s character should be the deciding factor as to whether or not a person is just a temporary. One might possess a radiant smile, mannerly, a good shape, of even loving from the outside, which are all good but at the same time it is only a superficial image. However with character, even after they would have displayed all the nice outward stuff, are they that same person when they leave your presence? What are they like when they are alone, or better yet when they are in the company of others whom they are familiar with?

Do they maintain that same nice behavior? Or do they possess a Jekyll and Hyde type character? My mother told me sometime ago that a little can tell you what a lot will be like, and I am truly influenced by this statement. The little things that appear to be insignificant in the relationship are a clear sign that there is a lot more where that came from.

A person can not hide who they truly are; the true person always exposes themselves. For example a person may appear to be the sweetest person you have ever met, and then all of a sudden they display a real evil temper, and spew a heap of profanity when they become upset. This is just a sample of the real person on the inside trying to get out and his name is (Mr. Character), the one Paul said you should concentrate on, remember the things you do not see, because he is sometimes very difficult to notice in the beginning, due to what I call the impressing stage.

Mr. Character is usually kept in the dark until that person has achieved their objective with you, whatever that might be (most likely sex). They might give excuses like I don’t really curse like that, or I didn’t meant to hit you or I did not mean to shout at you and the list goes on, what about this one? I did not mean to sleep with him/her it just happened.

If you are the kind of person that does not tolerate the above examples, and you have a certain standard that you have for relationships, then these are the clear signs of a temporary, the sole purpose of these people are for you to learn from them indirectly, because their lives are crammed with deceit and inconsistencies. To remain in this temporal relationship, spells noting short of disaster and unhappiness. These relationships were never ever meant to be permanent; it was just another class, painfully grooming you for the ultimate relationship.

So take a few minutes and look back on your past relationships that did not work out, you know, the ones that hurt so bad you couldn’t eat, you couldn’t think straight, and the all to common ones, being consumed by unnecessary worry and fear. We all have sometime or another experience it, but now that some of us overcame it, we should thank the folks that put us through it because they unknowingly played a hand in preparing us for the ultimate relationship……of course those of us who choose to learn from them.

Friends I would like to add, no relationship that you were a part of was by accident, or mistake. That particular person whom you probably can’t stand to this day, like I said it was all building blocks for what you have now or what you are about to come into soon.

Remember this, in order to know what good is one must experience bad, so all the bad relationships or temporaries as I would call them, were all in an unknowing effort to make you not only appreciate, but recognize what good really is.

The principle of the bible did not say all things were good, but all things work together for good to them that love God and for them that are the called according to his purpose (Rom.8:28).

So as I have clearly shown you the relationship was no mistake, the mistake was trying to make something permanent that was only suppose to be temporal, but in an effort to make us appreciate and prepare us for the next exciting stage of our lives.

THE HYPOCRISY OF PARENTS, GUARDIANS, LEADERS ETC.

By far one of the most covert tragedies ever inflicted upon a human being is not the idea of that person being, shot, murdered, using drugs, being married to the wrong person, mentally challenges or the like.


Instead to our surprise the life of every human being will continue to be the sum total of the words spoken over their lives particularly by those that had the initial upbringing or influence of that individual such as their parents, guardians, leaders etc.

I will forever be left in a state of confusion by the hypocrisy of parents, guardians etc. when they repeat evil, condescending, hateful words to and over their children and when that child turn out to be exactly what they have been negatively repeating year after year, THEY BECOME SHOCKED THAT THE CHILD TURNED OUT EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN REPEATING ALL THIS TIME!

Unfortunately, many of these parents and the like still do not see or acknowledge their part in what their child has become as a result of their consistent negative spoken words. There are folks today who are in their 20s,30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s who are still challenged in their minds with issues such as confidence, fear, failed relationships, poor decision making and so much more all because what have been cement into them from a young age.

"You will be a cocaine addict just like your father", "No good man or woman will ever marry you", "Why can't you be decent like so and so kids", "You are so stupid, backward, retarded, good for nothing, useless", "I wish you were never born", "You are an embarrassment to this family" "Your children will be bastards just like you". Such words and many more have mold, shape and influenced the future of that child. What that parent, guardian or leader did not understand at that time was, they were actively participating in a law that I will reveal later that was securing the future or destiny of these kids.

Many of these parents words have been out of frustration, anger bitterness or just plain unforgiveness towards someone else. Nevertheless, this does not discount the fact that you were framing the life of your children's future and unknowingly using a law to do just that!

For the most part that child's life is so hard, confusing and frustrating today, not because they have not completed high school or college, not because they got pregnant or got someone pregnant at an early age, not because they entered a failed relationship or whatever. Instead the reality is, the things that you think has caused them to be in the position that they have found themselves in are ONLY THE BRANCHES OF THE ROOT! THE ROOT WAS CREATED YEARS AGO VIA THE WORDS OF YOUR EVIL, UNTAMED MOUTH THAT SPEWED THE VENOM THAT HAS NOW MANIFESTED THEIR CAGED EVIL FRUSTRATING BACKWARD WORLD.

I am led to speak specifically to parents, guardians, leaders and anyone that has had influence in shaping the lives of others especially young people........ STOP BLAMING THE GOVERNMENT, STOP BLAMING A SYSTEM, STOP BLAMING YOUR CHILDREN'S COMPANY, IN FACT STOP THE ENTIRE BLAME GAME AND BEGIN TO FOCUS IN ON THAT DESTRUCTIVE DOUBLE EDGE SWORD JUST BELOW YOUR NOSE THAT HAVE COVERTLY AND OVERTLY DESTROYED AND IMPRISONED THE LIVES OF SO MANY!

To the victims I say to you, cry out to God right now and ask him to release you from the evil words of the past and even present that has caged your life to the extent you have become the personification of the venom that have been spoken over you. I stand in complete agreement with you tonight that the all POWERFUL GOD CONTAINING THE FATHER, SON AND HOLY GHOST WILL RIGHT NOW BREAK EVERY CHAIN THAT HAVE BEEN PLACED ON YOU VIA THE EVIL WORDS OF THOSE THAT WERE OVER YOU IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST AND SET YOU FREE TO FINALLY BEGIN LIVING!

For those parents who are speaking success, life, health and making positive confessions over your children, you are not entirely out of the woods as yet. I say this because you don't know who have been speaking evil against your children. Therefore I am saying to you aside from speaking life over your children COVER YOUR CHILDREN EVERYDAY NOT ONLY WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY WITH THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD WHICH SCRIPTURE CLEARLY STATES WILL CAUSE THEM TO STAND AGAINST THE WILES OF THE DEVIL NOT IF BUT WHEN THE EVIL DAY COMES, Eph. 6:11,13.

In closing I want to say to you, the Devil is out for our children and his success will always be based on his conniving use of the law of God with the assistance of our help of course. The law says, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it" Proverbs 22:6. Through the influence of Satan we are unconsciously being used by Satan in an effort in raising our children under a barrage of negativity and like scripture has predicted, when these kids get older they will not depart from it (the negativity spoken over them).

DEATH AND LIFE IS STILL RESIDENT IN THE POWER OF OUR TONGUES, PROVERBS 18:21.

My people will continue to be destroyed because they reject (available) knowledge, Hosea 4:6.
