Health is Better than Wealth!

As the King of England lay dying on his bed he said, “My kingdom for another day!” When a person faces death nothing but life has value. A person cannot understand that experience unless they have faced it. It was facing death that gave me life. I met God in 1972 when a contract was put on my life.

We came into the world with nothing and we will leave with nothing as well. Our legacy is what we leave behind. All of the experiences we have had from birth until now have formed who we are. Every thought, every trial, every laugh, every cry, everything we have seen, heard or done has formed our character today.

Perfect health is a gift from God. Sometimes we must ask God to give this gift to us. When the world was without form, God’s Holy Spirit moved across it and created the environment for God’s Word to produce light. God said, “Light be,” light was!

The Apostle Mark wrote, “And theses signs shall follow them that believe… they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.” Mark 15-18

What would you be willing to do to be in perfect health? You can receive the gifts of God when He adopts you into His family. How do you become an adopted child of God?

You acknowledge that He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. By faith you accept that His only begotten (biological) son, Jesus, was born of a virgin with God as His father, that Jesus lived a sinless life, was beaten for or healing, shed His blood on a cross as our sacrifice for our sins and rose from the dead after three days to sit at God’s right hand in heaven interceding (praying) for us.

When you tell God that this is what you believe, He will adopt you into His family. Turn the previous paragraph into your prayer and ask God to forgive your sins. He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and give us eternal life with Him in heaven when we ask Him.

The wages, the cost, of sin is death. God asked Jesus to become the payment for our sin. Jesus was from the beginning and left heaven to take on a human form so that you and I can be united with God.

This is being “Born Again” as a new spirit. God is the God of spirits. We are Body, Mind and Spirit. Our spirit is disconnected from God because of the sin we inherited from the first man, Adam. God wants us to connect with Him, so He made a way. When our spirit gets right with God, our body follows. By faith we grow in grace. We must feed our spirit and spirit food is the Word of God.

When Jesus rose from the dead He asked God to send the Holy Spirit to be with us, God’s children, here on earth. When we are born again the Holy Spirit takes up residence in us.
The next step is to ask Jesus to baptize us in the Holy Spirit. This is a second work of grace. God is in us and now we want to be in God.

When the Holy Spirit is alive in us and we are alive in Him, sickness and disease have no place. How do we remove them? We remove them by faith! We must get full of God’s Word and the Word will force sickness and disease out of us.

“Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God!” Romans 10:17

In 1968 I was mugged in Washington, DC. Remember the old heavy green glass Coke bottles? One was beaten and broken into my skull. The hole in the left side of my skull grew back overlapped. There was a ridge and heavy scar under my hair. I had this indentation for 42 years and had become used to it. It didn’t hurt and I really didn’t even think about it. Until one day…

In April of 2010 I began to listen to my Word Warriors Audio Bible™ all night as I slept. One day in late July I was driving south on route #95 to the ROC in Richmond and reached up to my head to scratch it. The indentation was gone. My buddy Steve looked over at me and said, “What’s wrong with you?” I said, “The hole’s gone, the hole in my head is gone!” I was overjoyed! What a gift!

I have no idea when God healed it. I had not had prayer for this healing. I never expected it to be restored. God gets all of the credit. He gave me the assignment of getting audio Bibles into the hands of 100,000,000 Americans in South, Central and North America. Now He has given me a testimony to achieve this task.

“My God, my God, my God, you are amazing, I Praise you, I Glorify you, I Magnify your Holy Name. You are the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. You are the creator of heaven and earth. To you be all of the Honor and all of the Glory forever and ever, Amen.”

My God is my everything. He is my dad. Holy Spirit is my best friend. Jesus is my Lord and Savior. Come and meet God with me. God loves you and wants to bless you as He has blessed me. Jesus gave His life for you.

Father, I pray for this reader right now. Holy Spirit, draw them to Jesus. Father save them and bless them. Give them the God kind of life. Touch them with your love and your tender mercy. Give them hope, give them peace, give them life, thank you Father.
