Three day dry fast-to eliminate spiritual sickness

I have written quite a number of articles speaking specifically about spiritual sickness. At the same time I have received, and I am still receiving numerous emails as to how to combat and defeat such sickness.

In today's teaching on fasting, we will be focusing on the 3 days dry fast to eliminate spiritual sickness. Firstly, a three-day dry fast is a fast where one will not consume any liquids or food at all, there are no exceptions to this and it must be for 3 days or 72 hours. It is highly recommended that time is set aside specifically for this fast where there will be no form of distractions of any kind. Before this fast, scriptures concerning cleansing, purity, righteousness and the like should be written down in advance to be repeated during prayer time during the fast. I also strongly advise that the person engaging in such a fast MUST BE SIN FREE DURING THIS PERIOD! Meaning, there must be a confession of all sins particularly unforgiveness, sexual sins, etc. before the fast. Again, this will not work IF THERE IS UNCONFESSED SIN IN YOUR LIFE!

The reason for this specific fast is to eliminate the body of any and all points of contact that has become the source of the spiritual sickness that is now resident in the victim's body. For example, let's say an enemy has placed witchcraft contamination in some food that has been consumed by the victim. Of course, it will always look and appear as regular food. However, the spiritual items in that food which is not visible to the human eyes are spiritual contamination set to pollute the spirit of that person. Some of the physical symptoms the victim will experience would be unexplained swollen legs, various unexplained skin diseases such as lesions, rash, bumps, and lumps about the body. The victim will also experience strange things or objects crawling or moving throughout their body. They will also experience seeing things on their body that is not visible to others. The victim will be flooded with strange thoughts of fear and death, massive headaches and an overall feeling of sickness, that again cannot be explained, and no Doctor can identify its cause naturally. There are cases where the victim has had this evil in their system for so long that certain limbs either become disfigured or the victim becomes so sick that their appearance changes to something other than who that person use to look like. I personally know of cases where when such a person dies, with a distorted sickly appearance, the minute they pass away their features and appearance resume to who they looked like initially.

This is just evidence of the spirit of infirmity that had their spirit oppressed and in turn manifested in their physical appearance but again, once the body dies or the spirit is cast out everything returns to normal. I always use the story in Luke 13 as an example of when Jesus cast the "spirit of infirmity" out of the woman who was bent over for 18 years and immediately when Jesus cast the spirit out, the lady that was bent over for 18 years was able to stand up erect like everyone else.  Just for clarity, the human body becomes the host for the spirit of infirmity that becomes responsible for changing the appearance of the human host to a distorted figure, Matthew 12:43-45.

The interesting thing about this particular type of spiritual contamination is that whatever ingredients that this contamination was mixed with is what will fuel this evil once consumed by the victim. For example, let's say this spiritual contamination was placed in the victim's food of beans, rice, chicken, etc. Well, the water, salt, seasoning, butter and whatever else was used to mix this meal which included the spiritual contamination is all a part of that contamination.

Therefore, as long as the victim consumes anything in the future that is remotely related to the ingredients that made up the spiritual contamination their sickness will become worse. Of course, this will naturally sharply decrease the victim's quality of life and eventually kill the victim if not challenged by prayer and fasting. Thus, a dry fast is designed to starve the spiritual and physical contamination by not consuming anything for 3 days. Of course,  specific prayers laced with relevant scriptures must be violently prayed.

This explains why the victim has been praying for years to be delivered from their sickness and absolutely nothing changed for them. Some folks have given up on God simply because they did not understand the nature or root cause of their illness. Unfortunately, such spiritual challenges and many others like them will require prayer and fasting. Jesus himself said that this kind will only come out through prayer and fasting, Matthew 17:21. The reason why 3 days is required for such a fast because; the number 3 biblically speaking represents completion, perfection, etc. and if followed as prescribed you will see changes. The following prayer is to be recited 7 times every 12 hours of the fast until the fast has ended:

Heavenly Father, in the name of your son Jesus Christ, I confess all sins that I have committed against you in word, deed, thought and in action. Lord, I repent of all evil that I have done and, if there is any evil within me that I'm not aware of, I ask your forgiveness of those sins and pray that you cleanse me of all evil in Jesus name.

Lord, your word says that my body is the temple of the Lord and that I must also present my body as a living sacrifice holy and acceptable unto you. Lord, I am asking you during this fast in which I am surrendering my body as a living sacrifice unto you that you spiritually and physically remove all evil contamination that has been subtly deposited into my body that has caused unexplained sickness in my spirit and body.

Father, I firmly stand on your word that will bring about my healing. Lord, your word says, "Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God. I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness" Isaiah 41:10. Lord, I bind myself to your word that says, "Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou [art] my praise" Jeremiah 17:14. Father God, your word says that death and life is in the power of my tongue. Therefore I speak death to all spiritual and physical contamination in my body and, I command all residue of it to be passed out of me in the mighty name of your son Jesus Christ. Lord, you said that we should remind you of your word, therefore, I am reminding you of your word that says, "Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth" Jeremiah 33:6.

Father, your word says you will supply all my needs according to your riches in glory by Christ Jesus, so I am asking you to provide me with complete healing and deliverance to my spirit, soul, and body in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Lord, I am reminding you again of your word that says, no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and I have condemned all tongues that have risen up against me in judgment. Therefore, I am in a state of expectancy from you in the mighty name of your son Jesus Christ.

Lord, you said that you have seen my ways and you will heal me, you promised that you will lead me also and restore comfort unto my mourners and me, Isaiah 57:18. Finally, father, I am digging my faith deeper into the foundation of your word. Your word says, "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes, we are healed." Therefore, I decree and declare complete restoration of my spirit and body and whatever is in my system I send the fire of God against it and command it to be eliminated from my body in the name of Jesus Christ, which is the name above all names. Amen!
