Overcoming Trial

Galatians 5:25; If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Romans 8:1; There is therefore no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

If you go into almost any Spirit filled church today and the speaker says “raise your hands if you need prayer”, the chances are a large majority of people will put their hands up. Many will have very pressing and serious needs that are not being met. Others will be discouraged, afflicted, financial oppressed, heartbroken, etc.

In many instances, the Body of Christ is worse off than those of this world.

The main reason for this is that Christians have forgotten they are in a spiritual battle. We are accused day and night before God because we are judged in this time, and not in that time to come. So every time we yield to the temptation of the flesh, we bring ourselves back under the law where we can come under legitimate attack and condemnation.

Galatians 5:16-24 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

What is the secret to walking in the Spirit? It is spending time with God in prayer and the Word. One thing is 100% certain and that is if a Christian is going through real hardship and damaging trial (not that which God allows to refine us to a higher level), we can be assure that their prayer life is not where it needs to be. If you are facing a such a trial now, you need to spend more time with God. How much is enough time? Are you praying an hour a day, 2hrs, 3hrs? Are you fasting? Have you taken leave from work and fasted and prayed unceasingly for a week or more for revelation or breakthrough?

Because if something is so afflicting and traumatic, it requires a supreme amount of intervention to get the breakthrough. You need to move something in the spiritual realm so the change can manifest in the natural. Every breakthrough has got to start with a spiritual victory. Natural efforts alone are doomed to failure. “shake heaven and the earth will move out of its place.”

Here are a few tips for breakthrough in prayer.

1. Always ask God to convict you what you are doing wrong? Sometimes bondages (those of our own or from our forefathers) are hard to discern because they are part of our character. In this regard a 3 day water / juice fast is very beneficial
2. Ask God what the cause of the trial is. Sometimes the symptom is far removed from the cause. Dealing with symptoms (such as sickness or loneliness) is a waste of time. Press in and pray until you start to receive conviction of the cause.
3. Getting revelation of sin / the cause of our distress must automatically lead to repentance and renouncing of related sin or behavior /actions/ thoughts.
4. Prevail in prayer and ask God to remove the effects of those past works, not only for yourself but for others that have been afflicted by this.
5. Ask God to establish a new way forward and give you the strength not to succumb to the same temptations again. (the devil will earnestly seek to re-establish his authority in this regard)
6. Stop complaining and talking about your troubles. It afflicts others and you are in fact prophesying and establishing the same affliction further into your future. Rather prophesy and declare the things you seek to happen and the changes you are trusting God for. After all, “God establishes the words of his servants”
7. Forgive others to the level you want God to forgive you. If you cannot pray blessing onto those that have harmed you, you are still in bondage and dare not expect anything from God. Prayer for those that have harmed you until you have the love of Christ for them. Only then have you really forgiven and being set free from your own bondage of un-forgiveness and bitterness. Anything else is delusion.

A prevailing issue for Christians is that we measure sin and determine who is more at fault in a matter. If you are suffering or afflicted, you need to deal with your own issues and not worry about the other person. If you are only 1% at fault, deal with that 1% and receive your breakthrough. Get yourself back in line with the Spirit and you will see breakthrough. If you get this right you will not need someone else to pray breakthrough into your life; you will be living in Spirit and establishing perpetual breakthrough.

The big questions are…..
Are you desperate enough and willing enough to sacrifice enough time and effort to hear directly from the Holy Spirit?
Are you humble enough to take stock of the state of your heart and make changes?
Will you persist no matter what you are feeling, thinking or being told by others?

Most of us aren’t and that’s why we need others to step in and pray for us. But is really is a very poor 2nd choice.

Spiritual Warfare

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
We are strong in the Lord, when we are weak in the flesh. When we choose to not act in the flesh we allow the Holy Spirit to manifest through us in wisdom, knowledge, healing, miracles, prophecy, discernment, tongues and interpretation of tongues through us – 1 Corin 12:7-11. When we yield and allow the Holy Spirit the authority to manifest through us, He overcomes the works of the devil.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
The devil has no power of his own, but he tempts us to act in the flesh or yield our authority to him so that he can resist the efforts of the Holy Spirit through us. We are the only resistance to the Holy Spirit; either through our yielding of authority to the devil or succumbing to temptation and acting in the flesh. This the only battle we need to focus on for the Holy Spirit to be victorious. The following scriptures of warfare in Ephesians 6 advise us how to facilitate this:

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Anything we do out of our own strength is a waste of time. Flesh cannot fight and overcome in the spiritual realm and real victories only come when when we achieve spiritual breakthrough. When God has authority through us he stirs us up to act and move something in the spiritual realm first, after which the breakthrough will manifest in the natural. Isaiah 13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place….

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Our role in this battle is to withstand and resist the devil

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth,
To resist the devil we firstly need to be walking in truth. Truth comes through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth. In other words we need to be in fellowship with God through the Holy Spirit. When in fellowship we rightly hear His voice and are led of Him, walking in truth.

and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
Righteousness means ‘being right with God’. If God is convicting us of sin or of action, we need to respond. If it is sin, we need to repent, renounce, turn from that which God convicts us of. If God is convicting us to act or say something we need to respond in faith. The Spirit of God may be bringing the spiritual victory but he does it through the Body of Christ. Often a simple act of obedience from us is all it takes to allow God to bring a breakthrough.

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
The motivation for our journey into battle is to share the gospel message of Jesus Christ; his dying for our sins so that we can have eternal life. We do not share the gospel so that we can build a ministry / get an income / gain authority / gain preeminence. To have any personal motivation makes us ineffective and a hindrance to the Spirit of God working effectively and powerfully through us. Assess carefully the motivation for any works for the Lord. Are we led of the Spirit or led of the flesh.

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
Faith is the elixir of the Christian walk. But faith comes through spiritual maturity and spiritual maturity comes through the making of our testimony which comes through yielding to God, which is possible as we get to know Him (through prayer and the Word). So if you want the shield of faith to be in place, spend time with God in the Word and in prayer. Your will get to discern His voice which will allow you to be led on a journey of faith, which will establish a testimony, which will in turn allow you to act in faith in the future. In this way we overcome the works of the devil. Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony;

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the
Let us not grow weary in this battle ‘for the end of our faith is the hope of salvation’. We are shaping the eternal destiny of others as we resist the devil and we should always bear this in mind as we labor in love. 2 Timothy 2 :10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
The word of God is the written word, but Christ was also the Word made manifest. If God brings a word to remembrance or gives us a spoken word, we need to respond and act / speak it out in faith. We are made in the image of God and God spoke things into existence. We therefore can establish the will of God by speaking out the things he convicts us to say – be this in prayer, intercession, prophecy or proclamation. God establishes the words of his servants. Isaiah 44:26 That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers;

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Don’t pray in the flesh which is ineffective and without direction. If you are looking for breakthrough through prayer, hold no hardness in your heart towards anyone and forgive those that have harmed you. (If you have any bitterness in your heart towards any person, begin to intercede for them until you only have love for them. Once you have this, you are in a place to have powerful prayers). Thereafter draw close to God, shed all fear and anxiousness and pray as the Spirit leads, prevailing until the victory is established. James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Sometimes fasting is required to fully led of the Lord in the matter at hand.

Inner Healing

Have you ever found yourself in a cycle of failure, disappointment, suffering, rejection or abuse? Chances are you need inner healing. The saying “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me” is the biggest lie ever spoken. The psychiatry wards are not filled with people who have been physically beaten, but by people who have been verbally tormented, abused and cursed and medicine are more often than not prescribed for mental conditions.

God spoke everything into existence and acted on the spoken words of His prophets. In the New Testament the Word took on flesh and the power of God was made manifest through Jesus Christ. And God says if we can control our tongues we are a perfect man. This is because our words are the evidence of the state of our hearts and what we speak is ultimately what we become. Because words have power.

The power of words is increased dramatically when there is authority behind those words. A parent speaking to a child, a spouse to a partner, a teacher to a student, a boss to an employee, a Spirit led Christian to a demon, a person cursing them-self… When there is authority and power, things begin to change and come in line according to the spoken word.

If anyone, especially those that have legitimate authority to do so, curses you,(speaks evil about you, prophesies a negative future for you, or condemns you) there will be an impact on your future. If you openly state something negative about yourself, your capabilities, your future, you have established your destiny in some way.

If your parents, grand parents or even great grandparents have made vows, uttered curses or yielded to demonic/spiritual authorities, their actions will have an impact on your life.

If you have been to a spiritualist, shaman, clairvoyant, witch doctor or other spiritual practitioner, you have allowed your destiny to be redirected.

If a doctor, psychiatrist or other practitioner has pronounced a curse upon you, you have allowed your destiny to be altered.And if you are taking mind altering drugs, your perception is being clouded and you may be opening yourself up to demonic interference.

If you have experienced trauma, rape, violence or other highly stressful situations, you may have received spiritual impartation and bondage in the process.

If you have yielded to eastern philosophies, exercises and sports,which all have a root in spiritual and occultic practices, you have allowed a spiritual yoke to be placed upon your neck and your destiny.

If you listen to dark and violent music and mouth the words as you sing, you are cursing your destiny.

If you have joined a secret society or group, made oaths and vows, you have cursed and altered your destiny.

If you have had sex outside of marriage you have received spiritual impartation from your partner. Not only is there a spiritual yoke connecting the two of you, but every spiritual authority running through his /her bloodline now has legitimate access to your life.

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us

What is the solution for recovery?

1. Fast 1 day on water.
2. End of day spend an hour asking God to bring to mind every decision,word and action that has contributed to your current suffering.(write it down)
3. Ask God to reveal everything you you have said and done to others that you need forgiveness for (write it down)
4. Ask God to reveal every person and word that has been spoken against you and to you and every action that has been carried out against you that has contributed to your current suffering(write it down)

5. Confess your sins, renounce them and ask God for forgiveness for everything that He reveals to you. This includes the ungodly responses you have when people committed evil against you. (yes even if you were 1% at fault – God is interested in your 100% recovery)
6. Forgive those that have harmed you.(you know when you have truly forgiven them when you can pray for their well-being and salvation without resentment – until then you have not forgiven them) You cannot have a single normal relationship if you have any bitterness in your heart to any person.
7. Pray for restoration and wisdom in future decisions.

If at first you don’t see total success, increase to 3 days / repeat weekly until there is complete recovery.
Then give thanks and share your testimony.

Associations Cost Christians

Joshua 7:4-13. So there went up thither of the people about three thousand men: and they fled before the men of Ai. And the men of Ai smote of them about thirty and six men: for they chased them from before the gate even unto Shebarim, and smote them in the going down: wherefore the hearts of the people melted, and became as water.And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face before the ark of the Lord until the eventide, he and the elders of Israel, and put dust upon their heads.And Joshua said, Alas, O Lord God, wherefore hast thou at all brought this people over Jordan, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? would to God we had been content, and dwelt on the other side Jordan! O Lord, what shall I say, when Israel turneth their backs before their enemies. For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall hear of it, and shall environ us round, and cut off our name from the earth: and what wilt thou do unto thy great name? And the Lord said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face? Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff. Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you. Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow: for thus saith the Lord God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you.

What’s truly amazing about this story is that the offender who caused the death of 36 men did not suffer in the battle.

I have seen it many times where the transgressor gets away without suffering whilst others nearby suffer instead. From the only sober Christian boy dying in a car crash whilst all the drunk non Christians survive to Christian women suffering greatly through their marriage to non believers…. there is a rule of association where God, almost non-sympathetically says, “Stop complaining and whining about your suffering; rather make the decisions that are right in my sight and you will see a change in your situation.”

Below are some very real instances of association that are causing Christians to suffer unnecessarily:

1. the workplace – If you work for a secular company and are not praying for the leadership and your superiors you are either going to be under continual affliction or you are drawing away from God without knowing it. Spiritually, you will not stay in the same place. You will either be impacting that company or it will be impacting you. Do not stay in a non Christian business if you are not praying for your company on a daily basis.

2. Family – if you are tolerating members of your family (under your house) living in an ungodly manner, your entire family will be under duress and affliction. By accepting their ungodly behavior in your home, you accept the devil’s influence and must be prepared to suffer the consequences. Earnestly pray for that family member and contest any behavior that is not acceptable. Fight in the natural and spiritual with all you have. (In this regard do not cast them out, which is to give the devil even more authority over them)Be Christ in every way, which includes strongly contesting in the spiritual and voicing strong opposition whenever appropriate. The pain of contention is far less than the suffering that comes by doing nothing.

3. If you are in a relationship with a non Christian person, be prepared to suffer regularly and painfully. Both partners in a physical relationship become open to spiritual impartation from one another. Any demonic authority from 3 generations up the bloodline of your partner will be allowed access into you life. Demonic possession outside of the marriage environment is routine. Prepared to see changes in your thought patterns and spiritual state. Women are especially affected as they move from under the spiritual covering of their father to that of their partner. Multiple relationships leads to multiple spirit ties and ultimately lead to demonic possession. Each of these demonic powers, will either openly or in a hidden manner, lead to torment and ruin our life unless they are dealt with through repentance and deliverance. (And any person engaged in pornography is developing similar bondages and spiritual yokes)

4. Yielding to ‘professional’ authority – There are many areas where Christians routinely yield to bad counsel and advice, under the supposed leading of the Lord. In this area I include nutrition, education, the use of technology etc, but count the greatest culprit to be that of pharmakeia or the medical fraternity which is subordinate to corporate interests, whose goal is to treat you for the rest of your life, rather than see your recovery. Modern medicine is one of the biggest killers of this age and too many Christians are quick to take whatever they are offered regardless of whether the product is appropriate, needed or safe. We live in an age of information and if we choose not to seek God’s solution for our health we can at least properly research our condition and find better options.

5. Spiritual engagement. This is willful opening up of ourselves to demonic authority and could be from visiting clairvoyants, to alternate healing practices that evoke spiritual powers and authorities, to carnal / ungodly Christians laying hands and praying for you, to being yoked with a Church that teaches false doctrine. Each instances give the devil authority into your life. Pray for discernment.

If you have succumbed to any such practices, stop crying out to God for relief but fast for 3 days on water and pray earnestly for God to lead you to repentance, the forgiveness of others, seeking forgiveness from others, the renouncing of sins and the breaking of spiritual ties, bondages, authorities & other influences. God has raised up various Christians and groups throughout the world who deal with spiritual healing and cleansing to bring breakthrough.Find them and be restored.

Alternatively suffer on gladly as many Christians choose, but please don’t blame the Lord and say it is His will.

Healing Knowledge

breaking the chains

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the future, when the Charismatic movement is superseded by a new move of God, we will look back and wonder how Spirit filled Christians tolerated such weak doctrine, such heresy, such indulgence and such a lack of knowledge as that which typifies the Charismatic movement.

It seems the focus of those that are considered leaders of this movement, is almost entirely centered around the very same things that tempted Adam and Eve and Jesus –  the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life. How much more money can be extracted out of the people, how big a house can be bought, how many luxuries, assets and properties can be gathered without conviction?

Meanwhile, teachings are so weak, the congregation can barely get to the next week without backsliding.. again. Recent studies in the west show that the lifestyles of Christian families and increasingly mirroring those of non believers and no wonder. How often do leaders discuss spiritual matters; the consequence of sin and spiritual warfare? How often are people warned about associations and being yoked with non-believers?

What about even basic knowledge on matters that affect health and consequently the spiritual status of a person? Where are the Christian ministries exposing the consequences of GMO’s, poor diet and lack of exercise? Just about every Church has a large percentage of people that are suffering sickness and ill health and yet the church generally offer little sound knowledge on how to address these problems.

Our suffering is invariably as a result of what we are allowing or putting into our bodies. (Natural or spiritual) Below is a checklist for anyone suffering ill health or disease. In order of importance apply the below for any condition you currently have.

Spiritual assessment: Do you have any unresolved anger, bitterness, resentment, jealousy, hatred, fear? Deal with it before progressing. Fast 3 days on fresh juice (cut out social media/TV/etc) and prayer for revelation about the situation at hand. Once God gives conviction; repent, reconcile, forgive, renounce or whatever He convicts of and move on. This will impact every one of your personal relationships for the better, not just those who are offended by you or whom you are offended by. If there is anybody that you cannot prayer for in love, you have a problem that you need to address. Prayer for that person continually until you can forgive them and love them and then the hindrance in your life will have been dealt with.

Assess your food? What are you eating? How much of it are you eating. The body can quickly become overloaded or experience subtle symptoms of ‘overdoes’  by excessive amounts of the same food and drinks. Older people especially can suffer degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, arthritis because of the same food / liquids they consume through habit. The medical establishment hates prevention and would rather treat the symptoms as this is where the money is, which means their advice often has little impact. Some simple advice in this regard is: filter your water (get rid of fluoride and chlorine which are both highly toxic). Where possible rely on organic foodstuffs which do not have pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals and other toxic substances added in the growing/production process. Where possible avoid food / drink from large corporations which are purely profit driven. Eat fast food as a last resort and avoid soft drinks. Avoid microwave ovens and GMO foods. Reduce sugar and caffeine.  Increase fruit and vegetables. Avoid colorants and preservatives. Take vitamins and natural supplements as the soil in which most of our food is produced is greatly depleted and is not providing us with the nutrition our bodies require for healthy living.

What medication are you on? The west is so medicated that half the ailments people experience are those caused by the medication they are on. Check the ingredients for every medical you are on and study the side effects. Medication is a big killer and this is true even for correctly taken medication. Wean yourself from whatever medication is not absolutely necessary.

Are you breaking God’s rules for Godly living? One of the biggest dangers is being in sexual relationship outside of marriage. The devil gets all sorts of authority into our lives through such relationships and women especially are vulnerable as they are under the spiritual covering of the man. That means whatever spiritual /demonic authority in over your partner has direct access into your life. Spiritual ties develop and the consequences of this can last for up to 3 generations.

Exercise is paramount for a healthy life. Your body needs cardio exercise to pump cells full of oxygen on a regular basis. Cancer cells thrive on acidic and anaerobic conditions and love sugar. Exercise also invigorates all the body’s systems and gets them working optimally; preventing constipation, forcing toxins to be expelled through sweat, building muscle and strengthening bones and joints. Its a de-stressor which resets your worry clock. (and worry itself can cause all sorts of illness) Start off with a walk around the nearest park and build it up over time until you can run for 30-40 minutes at a time. Anyone can do this no matter the age. Alternatively get a bicycle, but ensure the body has a thorough work out at least twice a week.

Fasting is of paramount importance, not just for spiritual reasons, but also for physical. Jesus said we should fast and every Christian should fast at least 1 day a week. Give your body rest for 24 hrs once a week and you will be amazed at how the body starts to revive. The body has it own natural healing capacity but we pump too much food (digestion requires a lot of energy and effort) into it, too often, to ever allow the body a chance to do repair and maintenance work. A 7 day fast on fruit juice will change your life dramatically. For those overweight, eliminate breakfast (this meal was actually introduced to break-a-fast and is not necessary) I advise to rely on two meals a day, one at mid morning and a second at evening. If we start the day with breakfast the body converts the previous night’s meal into fat reserves instead of utilizing and drawing energy from that meal. The body must be disciplined into drawing off its fat reserves instead of prompting one to eat at set times throughout the day.

Be careful what you allow into your body through your natural senses. There is so much demonic and evil ‘entertainment’ out there and we often do not realize the authority we give the devil by what we watch and listen to. Get rid of the evil music and the fear inducing movies and focus on whatever is good, pure, wholesome and Godly.  Get rid of the gossip, the judgment, the criticizing of others. Fear and stress will subside and peace will begin to be restored.

If Christians can get these right, most health issues will right themselves. The rest require fervent prayer for revelation as to the cause. Too often people are praying for and commanding healing, but don’t know the cause requires a simple change in habit or behavior. Once God reveals the cause, the matter can be addressed and healing will following. Its just sometimes we are so far from God we can never hear a thing. Spend time in the word, prayer and fast and you will hear from God in due course.

 

 

 

Healing through Christ

healing

Have you ever dared to trust God for healing through Christ and not seen a breakthrough?
What were you praying for? Were you praying for healing or were you asking God what the cause of the sickness was?

If you are eating donuts everyday and asking God to help you lose weight or deal with your diabetes, you may end up being disappointed.

So often in life we are too focused on the natural manifestation or symptom of a problem to be able to get a breakthrough. The solution is to find out the cause of the problem and then address that. And this answer often comes through prayer, fasting and waiting on God.

We experience sickness and disease from one of 2 things:
– Spiritual breach
– Natural breach

A spiritual breach relates to those matters of the heart and are the most deceptive and hardest to address because the cause is so deeply hidden. Anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, jealousy and the like ultimately manifest in the Body with severe health implications. In making these choices the only people you harm is yourself and those that are closest to you. You cannot hold a grudge against another person and think your resultant bitterness will not seep into and affect any of your relationships with loved ones. My advise is never hold anything against any person no matter what their evil towards you was or is.

Forgive them and earnestly pray for them until you have no bitterness in your heart towards them. Only then are you delivered from the devil’s authority in the matter. Of course bloodline influences can also affect your life and it is beneficial to ask God for revelation of any sins of the forefathers. These things do carry through and affect future generations.

Other spiritual intrusions come through the occult, submitting to clairvoyants, demonic activity such as murder / abortion / other evil, lusts and perversions and physical traumas which allow the devil access. In all things seek of God the root cause. Pray and meditate – do not give up, even if you have to prayer a 1000 times. God will come through. If God reveals any sin as a contributing factor; repent, renounce and make right what is wrong. Then pray earnestly for the healing. Let faithful brethren lay hands and anoint you and prophecy healing over you.

Then there are natural intrusions, mostly through what we eat or the environment which is becoming fouler by the day. My advise in this regard is to do the following:
1. Fast regularly, which, besides the spiritual benefit, allows your body to detox itself.
2. Drink purified water and organic food where possible to avoid chemicals, pesticides, antibiotic and hormones which can build up in your system.
3.As we get older the body is less efficient at removing toxins so always consider if your diet is balanced. We form habits with age and tend to consume more of certain things than we should which can overload and imbalance our system.
4. Think carefully before taking medicines and vaccines which are some of the biggest killers in this age. We live in the age of information, so study the side effects of any substances your doctor recommends. Chances are he hasn’t. Pray first and give God a chance to convict you of a better way of treatment.
5. Bad eating is often a symptom of a spiritual breach. Seek of God to find what is causing you stress. Not just what the cause is, but why it is stressing you.

You have 2 choices when facing sickness. Prayer or worry. Both have a very different outcome, so whenever you think of the condition you have or face, make the right choice. Even if it is a 100 times a day.
