What is the Place of the Christian?
As Christians, we must, first of all, realize that we are different. What applies to the regular ordinary man does not apply to us. When we look through the symptoms of Hepatitis B, we should not immediately begin to check if we have any of the symptoms manifesting in us. Our thinking and responses must always be different at every time.
Hepatitis B is not for us. The Bible makes it clear that if the Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us, He will quicken our mortal body. The virus that causes Hepatitis B should not leave in our body. It should die when it makes contact with us. Make sure that your mind does not dwell on the symptoms of this disease until you begin to fear. Hepatitis B is not for you. It is not for anybody, it is the work of the Devil, and Jesus Christ was made manifest to destroy every work of the Devil (1 John 3:8).
It is our place as Christians to heal other people who have this disease. We shouldn’t be the sick trying to be healed, we are the carriers of Life looking for the sick to be healed. There is a difference between ‘Divine Healing’ and ‘Divine Health’. The latter is our portion
God’s will for us is never to fall sick because we carry His very life, pulsating in us. It is, however, possible for a Christian who is not conscious of His divine identity to feel sick.
Can a Christian have Hepatitis B?
As earlier said, it is possible for a Christian to feel sick. Note the use of the word ‘feel’, a Christian CANNOT be sick. How?
The real Christian is not a ‘body’ but the Spirit. Your Spirit is born of the incorruptible seed of the Word of God (1 Peter 1:23). It cannot be destroyed, it cannot die. Sickness or disease cannot get into it. That same spirit as the ability to flow into a body and cause healing. It means you have the ability to heal in your Spirit, that is why Jesus commanded us to lay hands on the sick and they will recover. (Mark 16:17-18)
When you lay hands on the sick, life flows from you into their body and they get healed. You can get to a level of faith where your body no longer feels sick at all because your mind has been renewed to know that you cannot fall sick. Your body is the temple of God, and it should never feel sick. If at any time, you see any symptom, you only need to flow the life of God to that part of your body.
What if a Christian has Hepatitis B?
Even though God expects his children to walk in Divine health, he has also made a provision for divine healing, especially for those who are not strong enough in their faith to walk in divine health. If you find the symptoms of Hepatitis B in your body do the following:
- Command life to flow into your body
- Declare that the life of God is in you, therefore you cannot fall sick
- Command the virus to die.
- Reach out to other Christians who are strong in faith
- Do not think of death, because you definitely will not die
- Register for the Healing School of the Believers’ Loveworld
- Send a mail to our helpline for further assistance [email protected]
Kindly note that if you have not yet given your heart to Christ, you cannot live in Divine health as the Spirit of God is not yet domiciled in you. See how you can become a Christian here.
What Should Christian do about Hepatitis B in Nigeria?
As Christians, we should not sit on the medical explanations for the deadly Hepatitis B virus. We must realize that it is a result of demonic operations to cut short destinies, and the lives God has destined to be for His pleasure. Christians should stand in their place of authority. We have the power to heal. Not only Pastors should heal, every Christian has the life of God in him/her, therefore, every Christian is a healer.
