I am again reading A MORE EXCELLENT WAY,. Be in Health….by Dr. Henry W. Wright. As he talks of healing, he takes us to the spiritual roots of disease. There is a condition to the healing. Either through word or deed – is their someone that didn’t treat us right, victimize them, lied about them, abused them, either emotionally, physically, verbally or maybe even sexually? When you think of that, what do you feel? Do you have that high-octaine ping going off inside?
In exchange for the healing, we have to get right with God about this. Matthew 6:15 says, “But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will you Father for give your trespasses.” 1 John 1:9 says “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” In Matthew 6:14-15, says “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”.
Ephesians 2:8-9 says “For by grace you are saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: Not of works, let any man should boast.”. We are saved and have the assurance of heaven but the consequences of unforgiveness may bind you to a disease resulting from this sin of bitterness and unforgiveness. Wow…….
The second point he makes is that if we do it because you want the healing for selfish reasons you will be still wasting your time. Matthew 18:35 says, “So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your heats forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.”
He shares his first experience with healing 5 women with arthritis. He walked them through this and they all were healed from thier arthritis. All of a suddenly…it dawned on them: they had no more \pain. Fingers had straightened. The pain was gone. All five ladies stood there totally freed from crippling arthritis and it’s pain. Wow…..that is incredible. I can’t wait to read more.
