God’s Will Is To Heal Everyone Today As Jesus Healed All Yesterday (By Acts 10:38 and Hebrews 13:8)
By Emily Dotson
Regardless about what we think on the subject of – “Is It God’s will to heal everyone today?”, there is a truth that overrides our opinion. God’s Word is authority on the subject. Such as, “…let God be true, but every man a liar” (Rom. 3:4). We cannot use our intellect on the subject. Let’s see what God’s Word says on the subject concerning God’s will to heal everyone. But before finding His will on this…healing myth…we must know that we have certain laws that we must obey.
We cannot disobey God’s Laws on caring for our temple that houses God’s Spirit. As “If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy: for the temple of God is Holy, which temple ye are” (1 Corinthians 3:17). God has given specific instructions in His Word concerning caring for our body that houses His Holy Spirit. Before Jesus went to Calvary, God’s Spirit did not dwell inside man’s body. But since Calvary, His Spirit dwells inside the body of one that is born again.
Does it not stand to reason that when you poison your body with chemicals that your body will be damaged? Your body cannot be any healthier than what you feed into it. I learned this truth many years ago when I was struggling with lupus. I found there were some that had turned the doctor’s bad report, but not terminal, by changing their diet. However, when I tried to turn my terminal report around, I reached a plateau of only a partial recovery. And, until I learned that “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” as Luke 4:4 says, I had only a partial recovery.
As sickness enters our body that indicates that we have violated God’s Law’s that has been set for us to follow. Violating His Ten Commandments in any way can cause sickness in our body. One way sickness can come is by withholding forgiveness to those who have offended us. Also, it can come from not caring properly for our body, such as improper rest, lack of sleep, lack of nutrition, or self-anger, and etc. There are many ways sickness can enter our body. Sickness is not God’s fault when we do not follow His Laws. His Word contains instructions for living a healthy, prosperous life, even in the midst of a world that if filled with sin, sickness and death.
But there is a deadly enemy out to destroy God’s prize creation, which is mankind. Go to John chapter ten, verse ten, and read Jesus’ very own words: “The thief comes not, but for to steal, kill and destroy; But I am come that they might have life more abundantly;” (John 10:10). Don’t let the enemy deceive you in any way, whether it’s through disobeying God’s commandments on walking by love, or from violating God’s health-care laws. So never allow satan to deceive you in any way.
The Bible contains instructions and authority on our successful walk in this sin-ravished world. It contains the secret to a successful walk, so that you can walk without having failure in any way. Joshua says, “This book of the Law shall not depart out of thy mouth but thou shall meditate therein day and night, that thou may observe to do accordingly to all that is written therein, for then thou shall make thy way prosperous, and then thou shall have good success;” (Joshua 1:8).
I followed Joshua’s instructions and I found a way to expel lupus from my body. And though it took twelve months to turn incurable lupus – into abundant health – it was worth my effort. Today I am 74 years young and I am in abundant health. And you can be too, if you obey the Bible.
But we have an enemy out to destroy us, so we must follow instructions in God’s Word, so we can avoid the devil’s pit-falls. He is out to cheat and rob victory from us. Since our new birth we are citizens of Heaven so let’s follow the laws of the Bible, as we are no longer citizens of this world.
Also most foods we eat are full of chemicals and preservatives, which when taken into our body on a daily basis cannot build health without another source of help. We must eat organic foods grown without chemical fertilize or harmful spray. Pollution is in the water, air, and soil, so our food is filled with contaminates. So supplement your diet with vitamins and minerals to maintain a healthy body. Feed your spirit on God’s Word so your spirit can be strong as your body is strong.
Yet, we are no healthier that our soul realm. We must feed our mind and spirit on God’s Word daily as that will keep the enemies thoughts from invading and polluting our mind. We are a spirit being made as spirit, just as God is a Spirit being. So feed on His Spiritual Word. Read St. John 1: 1-4, and see that the Bible is a Spiritual book and since we are a spirit, we must feed on it. In Luke, Jesus said, “It is written that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. ”Our problem is that we try to live life without observing God’s Law, and by not meditating His Word.
So you can see that we have more than our body to feed, and that we also have more than our spirit to feed. We are a three part being made in God’s Image. We are a spirit and we have a soul, that holds (our mind, will & emotions). We must keep our soul (our mind) – free from worry and worldly cares. We must combine God’s Word’s instructions – along with nutrition and get rid of all our worry and cares. We must cast our cares on the Lord and learn to “Trust in the Lord with all our heart, and lean not unto our own understanding…” like Proverbs 3: 5 tells us to do.
God is a good God and He is a good Shepherd. He leads His sheep into His perfect as they follow His instructions. Otherwise, if we as His sheep detour from His teaching we will perish for lack of knowledge, just as Hosea says: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, for they have rejected knowledge,” (Hosea 4:6.) Also Proverbs says, “My son, attend to my words: incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of thy heart. For they are life unto those who find them, and health to all their flesh” (Pr. 4: 20-22).
We have a responsibility to read our Bibles instructions and follow God’s Laws so that we can live a healthy, productive life. When I tried to live by following the way the world did, I found myself in big trouble. I was perishing for lack of wisdom that comes by not knowing or obeying theWord. Then as I meditated Psalms 91, I fed in green pastures with that illness enemy surrounding me, so lupus lost its strength to hold me captive with its power to kill me.
This only scratches surface on God’s goodness and how much He wants us to be healthy, and prosperous. He then says, “…I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers;” (3 Jn. 1:2). It isn’t God’s fault the enemy tries to destroy us. It goes back to Adam giving him rights to operate on earth. But, Jesus became the second Adam, so “…For this purpose the Son of God was manifest that He might destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8).
When we obey God’s Law and also meditate His Word we can overcome the attacks of the enemy. My aim is to sir you up, so that you will open the Word and find that God wants to heal you the same as he wanted to heal me. He brought me back from the jaws of death and late stage lupus. So will God do for you too if you will believe and obey His Word.
Emily Dotson was supernaturally healed of lupus. Now she teaches others how to overcome disease through the power of God.
