Unifying the Everlasting Gospel and the Right Arm for the Final Empowerment and Completion of God’s Work
If God designed that man could glorify his maker in any other way than that which would reveal His character to others who are in need of this shinning light for their own remedy and salvation then He would be unjust. If God were to bless healing methods that would not reveal His character above healing methods that do then it would short circuit the whole plan of salvation, and that too what be an unloving way for God to operate by.
Because men would turn to the shallow waters that bring their desired result (maybe they want healing) but they don’t want the principles that the body must operate by to experience true long term health. So God must work primarily and He must bless above all that which reveals his attributes and character to mankind.
Therefore when it comes natural healing methods if we want to operate in the most successful way we must determine what methods would bring the most glory (revelation of love back to God) for that is the way that God will bless in the highest way.
If we understood that then the fads, the deceptive arts of healing, the modern inventions that promises quick reversals of disease like electrical healing and vibration wave patterns would be discarded and would never enter the mind of the missionary. There is however today much subtler concepts which attempt to draw the mind away from healing methods that reveal the final revelation of God’s love to man which will be seen in the union of the gospel and the right arm. This proper connection of the two we will soon see.
Now, if that is so we must determine God’s first steps for obtaining glory that will reveal to man a love that possess converting power. Power to change is what we are looking at. Isn’t the problem that most people are unwilling to change their diets, their lifestyles and ways. Could the beginning of disease start somewhere at the will of man? Your probably thinking of the quote: “90% of all disease begins in the mind ”.
And the first time Isaiah mentions disease and the condition of God’s people (Israel) he says, “the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
Isa 1:6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it;”
Isaiah beigns right were we should with head sickness, and wrong thinking in the heart. Not much has changed in 2,300 years, today we would say, “they are sick in the head” and everyone understands we are speaking of a life that reveals problems are occurring because of decisions made in the mind.
So you see God’s first work really is with the will, the mind, but we haven’t spent much time with healing that first have we. In fact when I have been around lifestyle centers a real concern about presenting the gospel is to do it without offending the guest. But what if there was a way to do it without ever initially risking offence? What if the only thing the person could initially reject was just love, and that love could open the mind of even the atheist to undeniable principles of love that operate throughout all nature and would lead to God.
This is what the true methods the gospel and the right arm would incorporate a total detachment from the concern of offence by presenting love without it being couched in common religious terms thus opening the heart to the creator without offense.
Here is how practicing God’s true methods would operate:
- 1st it would prove that for man to be healthy there must be the active reception and transmission of love in his life. This is a law that cannot be broken without consequence just as any laws in nature cannot be broken without similar consequences.
- It would validate that the body was designed to function by the operation of laws of love and cannot be happy or healthy without it.
- It would reveal laws that are established that are undeviating in nature and just so established laws that are undeviating in the physiological make up of man. These laws will be revealed function by love.
Physiological in Medicine: Being in accord with or characteristic of the normal functioning of a living organism. http://www.dictionary.com/browse/physiological
- It would prove physiologically that thoughts are constantly affecting the health of the body for good or bad by:
- Intercellular Communication
- Brain Cortex sends thoughts through the nervous system for operation to the organs to the cells to the nucleus of the cells and that changes to the cells occur through thought process.
- Prove positive loving thoughts produce healthy cells and unloving thoughts produce unhealthy cells
- Prove God designed man to be healthy and overcome obstacles through the exercise of love
- Begin as trust is established that the principle of the operation of love in the life is the beginning of the restoration of health and that the bible has accurate information which can teach us how to operate with this healing principle constantly in action for the improvement of every function of the body.
- Pro 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
We are going to live or die by our thoughts, feelings and words. This is a law that God has established now and at the judgment, physically and spiritually, temporally and eternally this law is set. And the more we are accustomed to thinking life transmitting thoughts, than death forming thoughts the more we will enjoy that pattern of thinking.
- for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Mat 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
Mat 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
Mat 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
Again being justified and being condemned occurs not only at the judgment but is being manifest now in the bodies and minds of men. It is sickness and disease that gives man an opportunity to recognize that there are operations in thought and action that are out of harmony with his maker.
For God to not allow a revelation that improper operation of the mind and regulation of the spirit are occurring would be for God to allow man to press forward unhindered to the judgment without warning.
Therefore disease is a warning to man and an opportunity for ultimate restoration, and to arrest this situation in anyway outside of that which will bring the greatest honor and glory from man to God is to work against all heaven in the controversy between good and evil.
