Wisdom: Key To Divine Wealth!
Welcome to October! I believe that every one of us must have had definite encounters with the Word on the subject of the covenant of financial fortune in the course of the month of September, 2019. My prayer is that each one’s encounter shall last for a lifetime and I also pray that the giving grace that launches men into realms of financial fortune shall rest upon each of us, all the days of our lives. Amen! This week, we shall examine the topic: Wisdom: Key to Divine Health!
It is very important that we live in the consciousness of the truth that, among other things, Jesus has taken away our sicknesses. As it is written, That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses (Matthew 8:17). If we know how expensive it is to keep a healthy body in the world today, we will give praise to God for the health we enjoy now. One of the areas in which the devil will really publicise himself in this end-time is in the area of sickness. However, God is going to strongly establish His covenant of divine health with His people.
Through divine health, God is going to make the difference between His people and the rest of the world because He contracted a covenant of good health with His people from the beginning. Our fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob did not have any reason to be sick because the covenant forbade them to be sick. The Bible says, My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips (Psalm 89:34). They were under a great covenant and we have been brought under same by the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is written, Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith (Galatians 3:13-14). Christ came to make us a partaker of this great covenant of divine health. However, it is wisdom to know the things to do for our health to be guaranteed. Therefore, what is wisdom? Wisdom is the accurate application of knowledge. Jesus said: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).
Jesus has paid for any inconvenience we may be experiencing. He has no plan for us to harbour any form of pain. But it takes doing what God has said to stay in that high premise of divine health. Let’s take a look at Isaiah 33:5-6, The Lord is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness. And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure. The point being made here is that the stability of our times comes by the accurate application of the knowledge of the truth which we possess.
The amount of wisdom we put in determines how stable our times will be. God is exalted on high, no doubt. He has filled Zion with judgement and with righteousness; it is now Zion’s responsibility to seek wisdom and knowledge for stability. Knowledge is absolutely indispensable if we are to walk with God (2 Peter 1:2-3).
Furthermore, sickness is not glorious; health is glorious. Sickness is most definitely one of the corrupting weapons in the world today. If sickness strikes a man, you will suddenly notice that the man begins to deteriorate in strength and form.
But we have become a partaker of the divine nature and so have escaped this corruption. The divine nature is void of sickness. Jesus operated in it and sickness could not attack Him. Divine nature is a covenant and every covenant has two sides to it. God can never deny Himself. When we fulfil our own part, God has no choice but to fulfil His own.
In conclusion, Jesus came for the whole man that is spirit, soul and body. He wants every part of us to reflect His glory. His mission does not stop with sin; He came that we might have life and have it abundantly. Hence, divine health can be your portion if you are genuinely born again.
Are you born again? If you are not, this is an opportunity to do so. Simply say the following prayer: Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. Today, I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me! Now, I know I am born again!
