The Same Spirit

In Romans 8:11 it says , "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." 

This scripture not only tells us that we have the same spirit Jesus has, but it also says it shall quicken our mortal bodies. "Quicken". That means if it is slow, unwell, sick, depressed, whatever, it will be quickened, meaning it will be given life. This scripture is one in many that tell us that we can be healed. 

Now as Christians, we should know that God heals right? If we believe He can heal, do we believe also that He can heal now, through us. I should hope that we do. For the Bible says that we can heal. Us, humans, God's sons, can heal.

Before I go on about being healed and all that, I know some of you have thought, "She forgot to put "daughters" in there". True, but I did do that intentionally. Of course, there are girls and boys. But in God's eyes let's say that we are His sons. Why sons? Because when God looks at a believer He should be able to see Jesus in us, He should see His Son. Therefore, we should be as sons. Get it?

Anyway, back to healing. 

I am sure that most of you have heard about healing in one way or another. This medicine can heal, that remedy heals the stings, God heals brokenness, etc. I pray that you all do believe that God ALWAYS heals. Yes, he does. You say He doesn't always heal? Not true.

But you say, "What about all those innocent babies that die of sicknesses? What about all the people who die of cancer? What about all the people that are dying of sicknesses all the time? Including Christians?" I hear what you say, but I disagree with you. I mean, I see that happening, yes. But all that only happens because Christians are not doing what Jesus commanded. There should be NO sickness taking peoples health and lives. But there are. Why? Not because God lets it happen, but because there are thieving, lying, murderous, disobedient devils everywhere. Devils tremble in fear of the name of Jesus. "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe and tremble." James 2:19. But, just like I mentioned above, they don't want to obey. They hate God. They'll do anything against Him. So, they take the lives of the people God has created, in both physical and spiritual ways. Jesus gave the believers the responsibility to heal them, raise them from the dead... "And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give." Matthew 10:7-8. There. That is what believers NEED to do . You can't just believe, all you Christians. You need to DO what Jesus said.

 "What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,  And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also." James 2:14-26.

"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed." James 1:22-25.

Believers, we have a job to do!! We can't be selfish, can't think of your own shyness or lack of boldness. Everything we need, has already been given to us by God. We need to think of all that Satan is stealing from people. We can fight him, when we have Christ in us. Our minds need to always be renewed to His Word, to Him.

"According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.  And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;  And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;  And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.  For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.  Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:  For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."  

2 Peter 1:3-11
