Principle 1 - FOUNDATION
MISSION AND GOAL FOR THIS MINISTRYI have been given a commission of helping people become reconciled to God, thereby, manifesting truth within resulting in healing without. Before we begin, it's important we go to God and ask for His help and guidance during this time of teaching. The Lord works on an individual basis so we need to begin by asking Him to teach you what is vital for your life (Psalm 25:12). If you are not a Christian, it may be difficult to understand these insights because they are based on Bible principles, however, it isn't a criteria for healing, truth is, and is the only thing that will set people free, so continue on. It may be that you find the Lord here and receive His Salvation for your life!
The following prayer is in preparation for this study
Please pray this prayer
"Dear Heavenly Father. I need your help. I have been sick for so long and I'm very tired of being sick and tired. I am in the process of learning something that may help set me free. I pray that you show me what is vital for my life; let my ears be open to truth; and my eyes open to see. Please remove any fear so I can receive. Isaiah 35:4-5 indicates that we cannot see or hear because of fear, so if there is any in me, please remove it now. I thank you for what you have started doing in my life. I trust you to complete what you have started in me. I will have an open mind and heart and be willing to see the truth You want me to see; I will not fear. Thank you Father, In Jesus Name. Amen"
Now open your heart, your eyes and your mind to what the Lord wants to do in your life. Let's begin at the beginning. The beginning of all disease comes in three dimensions. (Matthew 22:37-40). This information is to involve you in making a change in your life forever from this day on. When we are separated from God, others and ourselves, there is a breakdown in relationship, which cuts us off the blessings of God. We break the relationship down by our sins. (Isaiah 59:1-2)
Below describes how we can be separated from God, ourself and others. By seeing where we are personally will help as we move forward to finding your healing.
When we are:
1. Separated from God, we are separated from His blessings. We cannot receive anything when we are not walking in fellowship with Him. I have found that many people are angry at God for so many different things and they don't even know it. For example, when relationships don't work out, or when bad things happen, deep inside God is blamed. It's that "deep inside" stuff that is causing us to be separated from the blessings God wants us to have. Relationship with the Father's love is the most important part of your healing and restoration. It isn't until we develop and understand the love of God in our lives that real healing will begin. When we have no worry, no doubt, no fear, but total trust, peace and joy in believing God for all things will we truly find complete deliverance which will result in our getting well. The manifestations in our lives, either physically or surrounding could be from a direct result of the relationship we have with God our Father. Many cannot comprehend God as their LOVING Father because they've not known their own earthly father's love. Many have had poor examples of love and it has resulted in their dis-eases. Not every disease starts here, but many of them do!
2. Separated from ourselves, we are not able to accept or love ourselves as God loves us and sees us. Until we know the love of God, we cannot love ourselves. When we are separated from ourselves, we are also separated from everyone around us, including God. A person is separated from self by guilt, shame, self-hatred, self-rejection, and self-conflict. We are separated from ourself when we cannot love ourself and accept who we are. This is telling God that He made a mistake creating us. "Before you were ever conceived in the womb, I ordained you" (Jeremiah 1), "We are fearfully and wonderfully made." (Psalm 139:14). "How precious are thy thoughts toward me." (Psalm 139:17). These are the truths we need to feed ourselves so that it sinks deep into our spirit and becomes WHO we are - not just WHAT we know. Our head can be filled with so many truths, but until that truth becomes part of who we are and what we believe and lives in us, we will still be in bondage.
3. Separated from others. Not able to love all men. Is there anyone you cannot forgive? Is there a co-worker you cannot stand to be around? Are you easily angered when someone cuts in front of you in traffic? Are you prejudice? Do you have broken relationships with your parents, siblings, or a friend? Relationships with others will also block your healing and restoration. The Bible says, "If you cannot forgive men their trespasses, neither will I forgive you yours." (Matthew 6:15). Simply stated, God won't forgive us if we don't forgive others. Unforgiveness separates us from God. Isaiah 59:1-2 says that our sins and iniquities separate us from God that he WILL NOT hear our prayers! Jeremiah 5:25 says that we with hold good things from happening to us because of our sins and iniquities. Our sins and iniquities are rooted in unforgiveness. (During this study you will learn how to forgive from your heart - not just give lip service.)
The beginning of all emotional, physical and even situational restoration, starts in the reversal of that process in your personal lives. It has nothing to do with anyone else. You begin by getting right with God. You need to get to know God the Father, God the Word, and God the Holy Spirit. You need to KNOW without a doubt that you are accepted in the beloved. You are complete in Him. You need to know the Love of God for you! We need to get right with God. We need to get into right relationship with God. We don’t get all cleaned up. We get right with God and then let God fix things up. And then get that "knowing" down inside so it becomes who we are. Instead of "trying" to be a good Christian, you "are" a good Christian.
This is a time of teaching that includes your participation. PLEASE HAVE A TABLET, PEN and Bible ready. When you access each session, it’s important that you are "diligent" and complete each step to the fullest.
A diligent person will make rich! (Proverbs 10:24).
We have provided you with the scriptures we use in this ministry as our foundation, however, we reference many others throughout all the teachings.
