Prepare pt2

Dear beloved: There will be situations in the days ahead when medicine and the ususual medical services will not be available in the way we have been accustomed to having them. Are you prepared to deal with life without your medications and services from your doctor? You may have to go for periods of time and put your trust in the Lord instead of medicines. Will you be able to do that? As you think about preparation for breakdown of normal supply lines of food and medicine, start to imagine what it would be like without them.

The gifts of the Holy Spirit were given to empower the church, to equip the saints for the work of the service in serving not only the body of Christ, but also serving those who don't know Christ but need help and aid in times of tribulation. Matthew 9:35 tells us, And Jesus was going about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness. As near as I can tell that means every kind, including mental illness, cancers, tumors, crippling arthritis, high blood pressure, and everything imaginable that people take medicine for. Can you trust your illness to Jesus and the power He has given us as believers to heal not only ourselves but others as well? Matthew 10:6-8,Jesus said to the disciples, "Go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, v7"And as you go preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand, v8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons, freely you received, freely give." So He also gave the disciples authority to heal the sick with the same power that He did it. And again in Mark 16:18, when Jesus is commissioning the disciples before He ascended to heaven to be with the Father, He told the disciples that a hallmark of believers will be they will lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Start practicing today to get along without medicines for all your ailments. Start trusting in the healing power of Jesus blood and the power of the resurrection. Start laying hands on the sick in your family, and on yourself, and binding those foul spirits of disease and infirmity to go in the name of Jesus. Jesus himself said the sick will recover. Do not fear failure, it is not your power and therefore you are not risking anything. Just ask in Jesus name and trust His word that what He says He will be faithful to watch over, and perform it in you and your loved ones. Then if a breakdown in supply of medicine comes you will be prepared. I am not a Christian Scientist nor am I anti-doctor, God can use both doctors and medicines. What I am doing is asking you to stretch your faith so if you can't get your normal medicines you will not be devastated or suffer any setback. Just trust the Lord and He will bring it to pass. God bless you, in Christ, Jim
