HEALING AND HEALTH.
THROUGH THE UNFAILING POWER OF GOD
3rd John verse 2
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (KJV)
It is the will of God that we prosper and be in good health because we are the exact image of God.
Healing and health is indispensable in the life of human being so we need it more than many other things.
Without healing and health life will be miserable and full of pain problems and setbacks
In the old testament healing and health is part of the covenants of God for Abraham because of his good relationship with God.
Exodus chapter 23 verses 25 and 26
25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.
26 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil (KJV).
We Christian of today are also partakers of this blessings through salvation and obedience to the word of God.
By accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. Galatians chapter 13 verse 14 .
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ so that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

THE OLD COVENANTS RENEWED IN CHRIST JESUS.
God made covenant with Abraham in the old testament so that
We people of this generation can enjoy healing and health by giving our life to Jesus Christ. Because He is the only person that can give salvation to us.
Act chapter 4 verse 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
The new birth experience is the only way by which human being can be a partaker of healing and health in this new covenant.
(1) God called Abraham and Abra
(2) Abraham left the idol worship in his family so he became a New creature.
(3) Then he never go back to idol worship again so his salvation is genuine
(4) Abraham put faith into practice.
You have to repent of your sin, confess them and ask for forgiveness, accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour and promise Jesus Christ our Saviour that you will not go into sin again.
Then you should start to exercise faith in God through His son Jesus Christ.
Hebrew chapter 11 verse 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.
After you have received Christ you can start to enjoy healing and health.
Remember the Israelites walked through the wilderness for forty years where there is no hospital, no convenient abode yet they never fall sick.
Nehemiah chapter 9 verse 21 Yea, forty years didst thou sustain them in the wilderness, so that they lacked nothing; their clothes waxed not old, and their feet swelled not.(KJV)

Genesis chapter 1 verse 31

God did not create sicknesses to afflict us. Because sicknesses and diseases are the plan of Satan for mankind.
He fulfil his plan through his numerous agents of which the victim is one.
John chapter 10 verse 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
