Safeguard Yourself from Illness

Why wait, when you can get to the root of the issue and head off tragedy before illness of some sort begins to take root in your life? Throughout the course of a lifetime, the average person spends a large part of his income, time and energy on health-related concerns; including medical insurance, health foods/meds, and exercise related activities. In the end, the illusive trajectory of the pursuit of good health in the material realm is because the root of disease is spiritual, not physical.    

God Protects His People from all Plagues

According to the Bible all sickness derives from a spiritual root. The solution as well as the cause of disease according to the Bible can be resolved by understanding and practicing the spiritual laws of health and healing that God has revealed in scripture. Every child of God must first be aware of the fact that, not only is God capable of delivering from sickness, God has provided a way for all of His children to protect their entire house. Moses had more experience with sickness caused by plagues than anyone else in the Bible, so we must begin by looking at what he wrote on this precise subject. ~ “Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling” (Psalm 91.9-10).

Invite God into your Home

The word ‘dwelling’ means “house” or “home.” Here, God has provided every serious-minded Christian with the tools necessary to spiritually inoculate his home freeing it from sickness. Notice, the specific word mentioned here is ‘plague,’ which in simple terms means a type of disease that is affecting an entire community. So, what is the cure and how is it applied? Let’s have another look at what is written. Moses said, ~ “Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling” (Psalm 91.9-10). God is not unreasonable, neither is his plan of protection too difficult to adhere to. It is really quite reasonable and quite logical. — If you want God to protect your home, God must first be ‘in’ your house. The plague only comes to the house that God has been evicted from.

The Highest Level of Protection

Those who would prefer to banish sickness from their home instead of banishing God need only to follow God’s simple two step plan — 1. Invite God into your home, and 2. Keep him in your home. The first step is to do as Moses said… ‘make God your permanent residence,’ which literally means to make God your home or as the Bible says it — make God your abode. How is this done?… by following the instructions that Jesus has already given to every born-again believer. If Christians would only follow what Jesus said, they would already be healed and divinely protected. Most of them don’t believe this because they have never been taught it to be true. Exactly the opposite, they’ve been taught to think and believe the opposite! Jesus plainly taught that God becomes our spiritual abode (home) when we abide in His word. Consider the book of John. ~ “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (John 15.7).

Lock the Door

Jesus said that we abide in God, make God our home, when we keep His word abiding in our heart at all times… This is what the word ‘dwell’ (abide) means; it means to stay, to remain, to persist and not leave. So, God abides in our home to the same degree that we have the word abiding in our heart. Take another look at the words of Moses. He said, there are ‘two steps.’ We have already covered the first step, which is when we abide in God. The final step is to make God ‘our refuge.’ A refuge is a place of permanent protection. It is a fortress in which the enemy is absolutely forbidden and cannot enter even for one minute. When the serpent (pestilence) cannot enter your home, he cannot bring sickness with him.

Sanitize Your Home from Disease

It should be obvious that God will not share His castle with the devil, and anyone who secretly traffics the enemy into God’s fortress will be guilty of treason and suffer immediately ejection along with the evil one. Just as the ancient Israelites had to clean out all leaven1 (evil) from their homes in order to be delivered from the plagues of Egypt (world), so it is that God only becomes our refuge when all evil — every evil book, video, word, or thought — has been cast out and kept out. Leaven in the Bible means false doctrine,2 lie, or deceptive concept.It’s time to get your house immunized before for the seven plagues of the last days are poured out in this epoch.

Exodus 15.26

“If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight…I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”
