“By His wounds I am healed.” Isaiah 53

Hello God’s Beloveds.

What a great Birthday weekend I had.  I was blessed with a beautiful surprise Breakfast Party, and phone calls, and emails, and texts, and wonderful Social Media messages, and a super Movie, and a great Birthday Dinner.  Thank you ALL so much.  I am blessed, blessed, blessed.
At dinner Sunday night, the conversation got around to my health.  It is perfect.  At 76, I have never felt better.  I have no pain, and take no pills.  Please allow me to share this good fortune with you.
 After the broken back accident and divinely directed surgery that put me back together and straightened my spine, 6 months in recovery, and returning to work, I was slowly convicted by the Lord to stop medicating with pills and to start meditating on and receiving into my body the truth of His Word. (I am convinced our Nation is so over medicated it is hurting the health of our people)  Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, The Prophet Isiah said,” He took up our pain, and bore our suffering, He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we Are healed. (Isaiah 53: 4-5)  Matthew wrote, “When evening came, many who were demon possessed were brought to Him, (Jesus) and He drove out the spirits with a Word and healed All the sick.  This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: ‘He took up our infirmities and bore our diseases.’” (Matthew 8:17).  “And they overcame him (the accuser) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.” (Revelations 12:11) These scriptures along with the myriad of others that tell us God wants to heal us, and has given us authority to speak healing into our body because of the blood of the Lamb, gave me faith to trust His Word.  I put my mortal body in His hands.  It was a personal decision, so I am not advocating you should stop taking your medication.   I would just say pray about it, and see where you are led.
I had a drawer full of meds for pain for ankylosing spondylitis, and for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, along with baby aspirin, and every kind of vitamin you can think of.  I began to cut the dosage, and over a long period of time backed out of each one.  As I was doing this, in their place, I began a regimen of diet (lots of fruit to offset the vitamins) and consistent exercise for the lungs and heart, and cholesterol, and taking Apple Cider Vinegar, and Raw Honey.  (Go on Line when you get the time and look up this little drink , and natural raw honey, and see what they can do for you.) Take as recommended. They address each one of the issues I was dealing with.  But none of this would matter if not for His divine healing.  Again, I am not advocating anyone do this, I am just sharing my walk, and the fantastic health I have been given.  I walk around with boundless energy, a smile on my face, and a “thank you, Lord” on my lips.
It is written,”By His wounds I am healed.” Every time a pain, or any kind of health issue tries to come upon me, and they do ‘try’, I refuse it, and take in the written Word instead.  Search the scripture for healing promises.  “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are Yes in Christ. And so through Him the “Amen” is ‘spoken by us’ to the glory of God.”  (2 Corinthians 1:20)  Amen.
In another message, I will share with you some of the detail the Lord has led me to do in diet and exercise for good health that I would recommend.  I love you in Christ..  Blessings upon you and yours.
Poppa B.
