WELCOME to the Jan/Feb - 2007 edition of the Shalomindia.com E-Info Service.
Matthew 18:18 "Verily I say unto you, whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." The word "bind" means to forbid, the word "loose" means to let go or to allow to go free. Do not allow sickness, pain or disease run free in your body, bind it or forbid it to stay there any longer because of your rights as a believer.. Put your foot down and command it to leave in the Name of Jesus!!!
John 10:10 "The thief (satan) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." - Here we see the desired will of the Lord for every believer, that we experience abundant life. According to this verse He came for this very purpose. We also see clearly that it is not God who afflicts us. The word here for life is the Greek word "zoe." One highly respected commentator describes the true meaning of the word in this verse as: "life being the highest and best of which Christ is." In light of that meaning, you can easily see the wonderful gift of life the Lord wants for each of us. Sickness and disease are truly not in His plan for us, simply because He has none to give.
Luke 10:19 "Behold, I give unto you power (authority) to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you." - This is an exciting verse as Jesus said He has given us authoritive power over ALL, not some of the enemy! Command Satan to take his hands off of you. Command sickness and disease to leave you now in the Name of Jesus.
Isaiah 41:10 "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
Isaiah 54:17 "No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment YOU shall condemn. This is the heritage (birthright) of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me," says the LORD." - Sickness is judging you falsely, it is your birthright to live in health. You condemn it, with the Word of God, and command it to leave your body.
You Are An Overcomer Through Jesus Christ!
1 John 4:4 ". . . . greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."
1 John 5:4 "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith." - In John 17:14 Jesus states that we as believer's are not of the world. Sickness, disease and failure belong to the world. As a believer, we are given the right to overcome that which comes against us by holding fast to the Word of God. While we do not deny that the problem or circumstance exists, we do however deny it the right to stay through our faith in God and His Word!!! Know this: Faith in God is victory all of the time!!!
Romans 8:31 "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us" - You are a winner, you are victorious through the Lord Jesus Christ. Begin to see yourself the way God sees you.
1 John 4:17 " Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world." - Not only can we have boldness in the day of judgment, but we can have boldness now in this life in the face of adversity, knowing who we are in Christ, knowing what belongs to us in Him and tenaciously holding onto it, refusing what the enemy wants us to have. As this verse says so clearly, as He is, so are we in this world. Think about that for a moment, how is He now? He is not sick, He is not diseased - it can't touch Him, and we are His body - the body of Christ. Insist on having the blessing of the Lord manifested in you - praise Him for it now, worship Him!!!
1 Corinthians 5:15-17 "Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For "the two," He says, "shall become one flesh." But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him." we are one with Jesus Christ now. Sickness has no right to Him, so it has no legal right to us. It is illegal, off limits, it has no right to stay. Take a firm stand and run off the attack and lie of the enemy. You belong to Him, you are washed in His precious Blood, the covenant Blood. Command it to leave and Insist on your rights now, and don't quit until it changes and becomes just as the Word says it should be!!!
2 Peter 1:3-4 "As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust." Notice the past tense use of "has" given us all things that pertain to life!!! The blessing of health was purchased for us at the cross, it belongs to you now. Notice the importance of the Word of God, your healing must be rooted steadfastly on the Word, not on what you see or how you feel. And did you also take that we are partakers of His divine nature! I guarantee you that His nature is total health and well being, Expect it
1 Corinthians 1:9 "God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord." The word "fellowship" is a strong covenant word in the original Greek text. It means: intimacy, partnership and participation, and also communion. In other words, because we are born-again, we have been given the right to share intimately, in partership and participation in His life. Know that He is life, the purest form of life, and He's called us to share intimately in it with Him. It's a place where sickness and disease have no right. This is your birthright, count on it and expect it. And I love how this verse starts out - God is faithful. He's faithful to His Covenant Word, and to His covenant people, He's faithful to YOU!
Romans 5:17 "For if by the one man's offense [Adam] death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ." - Let's love this verse! Did you notice, it did not say you might or you possibly could, it says you will reign in life (this life in the here and now). Are you reigning in life or are you being rained on? If you are not experiencing victory, know that it is a breech of the Word of God for it to remain and become the norm. Get mad, with a righteous indignation, and command the circumstances to leave and take hold of the victory that is yours through the Word. For this is the will of God!
Genesis 1:28 "And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." - The red blood cells of your body already obey this verse, as they are being multiplied and replenished every 80 - 120 days! Look at the rest of what God said to mankind - subdue and have dominion... over every living thing! Wow! That includes cancer, bacteria, parasites, viruses and all microorganisms that cause sickness and disease. He gave the blessing, He gave the command, He gave you the right - now do it. Put your foot down on sickness and disease and command it to go - it has no right to stay, You are a blood bought child of God!!! Don't put up with it another minute, subdue and take dominion!
Colossians 1:13 "He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love" - To be conveyed is to be transferred, removed out of one and placed into another. The power of darkness which includes the curse, no longer has a hold on us as we are now members of a different kingdom - the kingdom of God. There is no sickness and no disease in the kingdom of God.
NEW STRENGTH EACH DAY
"I can do all things through Him who strengthens me."
2 Chronicles 16:9, "For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him."
GOD GIVES STRENGTH FOR EACH NEW DAY
Deuteronomy 33:1,24,25. "This is the blessing wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel.... Let Asher be blessed with children... and as thy days, so shall thy strength be."
A few years back I noticed this Scripture in its TRUE CONTEXT! Immediately after the 'blessing promise' that Asher would be blessed with children, comes the promise, "As thy days, so shall thy strength be." As God blessed Asher's family with children, so He provided daily strength and wisdom for the task!
This promise is tailor made for parenting. You may be thinking, "I canít cope with caring for my children." Or "How on earth could I ever cope with another child?" But God has promised that when He blesses you with a child that He will give you the strength and enabling to care for this precious child. He will give new strength for each new day. He doesn't give the strength and ability before the baby arrives, but when this blessing comes from Heaven, He sends His daily strength. Isn't that wonderful?
Whatever responsibilities loom ahead of you and you wonder how you will cope, donít despair. God will not give you the strength before you need it. When you face the task Ė and you cast yourself upon Him and trust in His strength and His resources, you will find that Godís strength will be your portion.
Donít worry about strength for tomorrow. Trust God for strength for today. You only have to get through today! Tomorrow God will come again and refresh you and renew you with His strength.
Matthew 6:34TLB, "Donít be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of your tomorrow too. Live one day at a time."
GOD GIVES STRENGTH FOR THE BATTLE
Maybe you are going through a battle in your life. Claim Godís word. He has promised to arm you with strength for the battle. He doesnít give you the strength before you face the battle, but when you face it, He will be right there with you!
Psalm 18:39, "Thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle."
GOD GIVES STRENGTH IN TIME OF TROUBLE
Psalm 37:39, "The salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: He is their strength in the time of trouble."
Nahum 1:7, "The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knoweth them that trust in Him."
Dear mother, as you lean on Him each new day, God will be Ö
Your Strong tower, Psalm 61:3
Your Strong habitation, Psalm 71:3
Your Strong refuge, Psalm 71:7
Your Strong rock, Psalm 31:2
Your Strong arm, Psalm 89:10, 21; Isaiah 33:2; Luke 1:51.
Your Strong hand, Psalm 89:13, 136:12; Isaiah 40:10; Jeremiah
Godís strength will be yours for today.
Love from NANCY CAMPBELL
"Oh, Lord, I thank you that I donít have to worry about tomorrow. I trust you for today. I thank you for your strength for all my needs today. I thank you that tomorrow you will give me new strength for whatever need I have. Lord, I thank you that whatever difficulty or pain I have to endure, that I can endure it in your strength. Lord, I thank you that you have promised to give me daily strength Ė new strength each day Ė for nurture the children you have given me and the children you plan to give me. Oh I thank you in Jesusí name, Amen."
Dear mother, hereís Isaiah 41:10 for you. It has seven promises in this one verse Ė one for each day of this coming week.
"Fear not on Sunday,
I am with you on Monday,
Be not dismayed on Tuesday,
I am your God on Wednesday,
I will strengthen you on Thursday,
Yes, I will help you on Friday.
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand on Saturday."Olga J. Weiss wrote this poem The Road Is too Rough
Are you lonely? Do you need a friend?
Do you sometimes feel like you're all alone in the world? Do you wish there was someone who really cared about you? Someone you could ALWAYS count on? - NO MATTER WHAT!
God tells you that good friends are very importantÖ
"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity." Proverbs 17:17
But even close friends and family let us down sometimes. God says that you have one friend that will NEVER let you down.
"A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closers than a brother." Proverbs 18:24
You don't need to be afraid when you're feeling alone, or things are not going well for you. Jesus is there for you ALL the time.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6
Jesus wants to be your friend -- ALL the time -- EVERY time.
You're not here by accident. Jesus loves you, and He wants you to have a personal relationship with Him. There is just one thing that separates you from God. That one thing is sin.
People tend to divide themselves into groups - good people and bad people. But God says that every person that has ever lived is a sinner, and any sin separates us from God. That includes you and me.
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
According to man's rules, people should be punished or rewarded according to how good they are, and it might be hard for you to understand how Jesus could love you when other people don't seem to. But I have great news for you! Jesus DOES love you! More than you can ever imagine! And there's nothing you can do to make him stop!
Are you thinking that you should make things right in your life before you come to Jesus? Many people feel that way, but that's not what God says!
"God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
For you to come to God you have to get rid of your sin problem. But God says that you can't make yourself right with God by being a better person. God wants to save you JUST BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU!
"He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy." Titus 3:5
It's God's grace that allows you to come to Him - not your efforts to "clean up your life" or work your way to Heaven. You can't earn it. It's a free gift.
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9
For you to come to God, your sin must be paid for. God's gift to you is His son, Jesus, who paid the debt for you.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
Jesus paid the price for your sin and mine by giving His life on Calvary's cross. God brought Jesus back from the dead and paved the way for you to have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus.
All that's left for you to do is to accept the gift that Jesus is holding out for you right now.
"If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." Romans 10:9-10
God says that if you believe in His son, Jesus, you can live forever with Him in glory.
"For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16
Are you ready to accept the gift of eternal life that Jesus is offering you right now? If it is your sincere desire to ask Jesus to come into your heart as your personal Lord and Savior, then talk to God from your heart:
Here's a Suggested Prayer:
"Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I do not deserve eternal life. But, I believe You died and rose from the grave to purchase a place in Heaven for me. Jesus, come into my life, take control of my life, forgive my sins and save me. I am now placing my trust in You alone for my salvation and I accept your free gift of eternal life."
If you have trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please let us know. We want to rejoice in what God has done in your life and help you to grow spiritually.
Have you made plans for your future security?
Are you searching for a way to provide for a secure future? The way of man stores up treasures, things like money, stocks & bonds, retirement plans, and insurance policies, to provide for their security during their golden years. God says that our security for the future doesn't rest in earthly treasures.
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there you heart will be also." Matthew 6: 19-21
While these earthly things can bring you financial security, they cannot provide security for your heart and soul. God wants you to trust Jesus for your security. This is what He has to say about a righteous man.
"His heart is secure, he will have no fear; in the end he will look in triumph on his foes." Psalm 112:8
You are made righteous through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Because Jesus took your place in payment for your sin, you have the blessed hope of a secure future.
"We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure." Hebrews 6:19
Jesus loves you and He wants you to have a secure future through a personal relationship with Him.
Are you looking for REAL JOY in your life?
Is there something missing in your life? Do you have what you need for your physical comfort, but you still don't feel real joy in your life? God says that your joy does not come from material possessions. God provides you with all the things you need, even things that money can't buy!
"We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them. He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy." Acts 14:15,17
True joy, the kind of joy that people can't take away from you, comes from an abiding personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Trusting Jesus brings joy to your life.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13
Sometimes having faith in something you can't see is difficult to imagine, but the joy that will be present in your life as a result of placing your faith in Jesus is evidence of the goal of your faith - the salvation of your soul.
"Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls." 1 Peter 1:8-9
Jesus wants you to feel true joy in your life.
