Get Healed. The Discovery that Changes Everything
Do you know the choking and painful experience of staying in a job that seemed to drain the very life force out of you, and yet your mind rationalised all the reasons why you cannot make a change? Do you remember being in a relationship in which you knew in the deepest depths of your soul that didn’t want to be there, and yet you were afraid to leave and felt like Life itself departed from you? Have you reached the point where your anxiety grew into turmoil, you fell into depression, and eventually your body became ill? If you’re reading this article now, you probably have found the courage to rip the bondage and make the change, or you are in the process of making this change. Those who don’t, eventually fall ill and die. As Carl Sagan, renowned NASA scientist, once said: “The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what’s true.”
I love you and I want you to understand this truth. It will save your life. Let me explain.
God breathed into us the breath of life, and we became living souls (Genesis 2:7). This is the biological life – the life of our bodies we inherit from our parents. The biological life is fragile and eventually will fade away into nothingness.
In His great love for us, God also gave us the Holy Spirit – the Life of the Spirit of God – to dwell within us. “For as the Heavenly Father has life in Himself, so hath He given to the Son to have life in Himself” (John 5:26). The Holy Spirit gives life to our souls and transcends our biological life. The Holy Spirit is the Life force that mends broken hearts, brings peace to shattered minds, heals our bodies of all illnesses and raises the dead. The Holy Spirit is the Life of God within you.
Paul in Corinthians 3:16 wrote: “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?” He did not say your body is the temple of God and God’s Spirit dwells in your body. He clearly wrote YOU are God’s temple and God’s Spirit lives in you. The Holy Spirit lives in you, given to you by God. The Holy Spirit is the Life of God within you. The life of God within you is the fountain of life, constantly replenished and overflowing in you.
Now follow me closely. Thus is the greatest secret and the revelation to heal your life.
Jesus called the Holy Spirit – the Spirit of Truth.
Therefore the Holy Spirit – the Life of God within you, flowing in your heart – is the Spirit of Truth. The Life of God within you is the Spirit of Truth.
When you listen to your heart and honour the truth, the Spirit of Truth within you (which is the same as the Spirit of Life) bursts forth. You feel joy, love and enthusiasm for life. The word enthusiasm comes from the Greek words en – within, theos – God and literally means God within. You have energy, you are healthy and you feel free. Your mind, your heart and your body begin to heal.
When you deny, block, reject, ignore or rationalise away the truth in your heart (I am in a meaningless job but I will stay because…; I am in a relationship I don’t want to be in but I will stay … etc) you begin to live a lie. The Spirit of Truth cannot stay where there are lies. Where there are lies death begins to creep, because the Spirit of Truth is the Spirit of Life, and because there are lies, the Spirit of Truth (which is the same as the Spirit of Life) is not there anymore.
When you dishonour the voice of your heart, you dishonour the Spirit of God dwelling within you, and where there are lies the Spirit of Life cannot stay. You begin to run only on your biological life, you fall into anxiety, depression, fear and eventually illness. Diet and exercise help maintain the biological life, but living in truth will give you the Spirit of our Heavenly Father, and He will heal your life.
Without Jesus we wouldn’t know this truth and we’d be crawling into darkness and death.
You now realise why he said: “I have come that you may have Life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10).
I love you,
