Healing Scripture Meditation & Declarations

Galatians 1:4 (NLT)
Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live.
It was God’s plan for Jesus to give his life for all my sin; past, present and future. He did it to also rescue me from the personal consequence of my sin which includes sickness and disease! 

1 Peter 2:24 (NKJV) 
who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.
Isaiah 53:3-5 (YLT)
He is despised, and left of men, A man of pains, and acquainted with sickness, And as one hiding the face from us, He is despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely our sicknesses he hath borne, And our pains—he hath carried them, And we—we have esteemed him plagued, Smitten of God, and afflicted. And he is pierced for our transgressions, Bruised for our iniquities, The chastisement of our peace is on him, And by his bruise there is healing to us.
Jesus not only died for my sin but also suffered for my sickness; This is why I am entitled to and can enjoy health and wholeness in Jesus
So I believe it and receive it!

Ephesians 2:8-9 (NKJV)
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
Colossians 2:6 (NKJV)
As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him
The way I received salvation is the way I live my life in Jesus; by grace through faith and not by my merit or performance before God. Therefore, when I am in need of divine healing, I also receive it by grace through faith and not as a result of my merit or performance before God!

Job 5:26 (NLT)
You will go to the grave at a ripe old age, like a sheaf of grain harvested at the proper time!
Psalms 91:16 (NKJV)
With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
Because it is God’s plan for me to live a long good life and to die at a ripe old age, I know that He keeps me healthy and whole!

1 Corinthians 1:30 (NKJV)
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—
Proverbs 3:7-8 (MSG)
Don’t assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
God made me righteous and holy before him in Jesus, this is why I have absolute confidence before God and shun evil from my lifeEvery day I see my body glow with health and my bones vibrant with life!

Proverbs 4:20-22 (NKJV)
20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; 22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
I love meditating and spending time in God’s Word, one of the reasons is because they fill me with the life of God and continue releasing health to my being.

Exodus 23:25 (NKJV)
“So you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you.
My Father, I am so grateful to you for blessing all that I eat and drink. Thank you for causing it to nourish me and not harm me, thank you for keeping sickness and disease away from me!

Acts 10:38 (NKJV)
how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
God is the ultimate source of divine health and wholeness, so while I do my best to eat and drink healthy and exercise regularly; I ultimately trust and depend on God with my health and wholeness!

The Hyper-Grace Controversy

Amidst the many controversies in the Christian church today, there seems to be one that clearly stands out head and shoulders above the rest, and that is the one many refer to as ‘hyper-grace’ or ‘the gospel of grace’ or ‘the grace revolution’. I’ve heard

A Response to the Marriage Equality Issue

God loves everyone, so much so that when Adam and Eve fell from his original plan, he did everything necessary to provide the way of redemption for them and their descendants (all mankind). Therefore, how one chooses to define marriage does not determine God's love for them, yet I am persuaded that

Why your every solution is found in Jesus and not in your performance or merit

(Scripture underline and bold emphasis mine)

Matthew 17:1-8 (NKJV)
1 Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; 2 and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. 3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. 4 Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, “ Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
5 While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “ This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!” 6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were greatly afraid. 7 But Jesus came and touched them and said, “ Arise, and do not be afraid.” 8 When they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.

Why Inclusionism & Universalism DON’T make sense

(Scripture underline and bold emphasis mine)

John 3:16 (NKJV)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

We can conclude from this portion of Scripture is that:

1. God loves everyone, not just the believer.
2. Everyone was included in His redemptive work.
3. All qualify for redemption and salvation in Jesus Christ.

Does this mean that ultimately everyone is or will automatically be saved, born-again and on their way to heaven?
