The Purpose and Power of Fasting

The Purpose and Power of Fasting

Jesus did not say if you fast: He said when you fast because fasting is a part of the Christian life. It is a part of our Christian walk.

“Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when […]

Thanks Be To God

Thanks Be To God

I recently talked to a man who experienced a glorious healing from colon cancer more than two years ago. We were discussing how marvelous it is to be touched by God’s miracle-working power, and to step from death into life as health is restored by God’s grace. As I listened to him talk about his miracle and the time since, I heard him say something very important. He said that he […]

Faith Lowers Stress

TORONTO (RNS) Canadian researchers have found that strong religious convictions can lower stress and enhance the performance of basic tasks. A team in Toronto put 28 students through tests measuring both levels of religious observance and stress caused by making mistakes on a test. The newly published study by professors at the University of Toronto and York University points to religious believers out-performing non-believers on cognitive tasks. “The more religious they were, the less brain activity they […]

The Importance of Sanctification of Food

God has willed that all His children live in divine health.
I wish above all things that you prosper and be in health as your soul prospers, the Bible says.
God’s divine desire is for His people to prosper and be in health. That’s the Word of God, but sadly today so many are sick, and it’s not supposed to be that way. I know we live in a society with a lot of poison in the […]

The Cool Cucumber

“Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” Psalm 37:5
Have you ever noticed that the more fresh fruits and vegetables you eat, the more you want? In Bible times, fresh vegetables were consumed regularly, unlike America today where processed foods filled with additives and hydrogenised fats are the norm. This is a concern of the medical field and should be a concern of ours as well. How […]

Figs: A Healing Bible Food

“For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD.” (Jeremiah 30:17)
God has given us healing foods right in the Bible, beginning in the Garden of Eden. The fig, for example, is mentioned in Genesis and more than fifty times throughout the Word of God. There was a time, the Bible tells us, when Hezekiah, the king of Judah, was “sick even to death.” He was visited […]

Religion Aids Happiness

The perception that people unfettered by religion are happier than those who regularly attend church is false, an economist says. “People who believe in no moral constraints on activities have less happiness,” said Arthur Brooks, professor of business and government policy at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, during a lecture series sponsored by the Acton Institute. Compared to “secularists” — whom Brooks defined as those who attend religious services once a year […]

The Holy Spirit Changes Our Appearance

Here’s what I notice about people with a strong anointing of the Holy Spirit on their lives. They look young, regardless of their age. Their eyes sparkle, and they have physical strength. Years ago, I knew a minister whose countenance radiated with the presence of the Lord. I knew him for years and he had a great anointing of the Spirit upon his life and ministry. During his ministry, however, a major problem surfaced in […]

Ten Ways to Boost Your Spiritual Immune System

Everybody knows the principles for maintaining good physical health-nutritious food, exercise, pure water, lay off the junk food, plenty of sleep, healthy and loving relationships-right? But, one third of Americans are now obese, and another third are overweight. That means two-thirds of Americans, in spite of knowing better, are living unhealthy lifestyles. The same is true for the way many Christians approach spiritual health-keeping their spiritual immune systems in top shape. Most of us know […]
