He that sinneth before his maker, let him fall into the hand of the physician
Sirach (Ecclesiasticus) 38:15
Spiritual healing is an important aspect of natural medicine. Man is a spiritual being with a body and not the other way round. A lot of diseases around today are spiritual and if the spiritual aspect is not touched, no amount of drugs or herbs can help you.
The spirits and souls of men get sick when they sin against the creator. The first step to health is to reconcile yourself back to God, seek his forgiveness, and correct your ways. Then either your drugs or herbs will now work for you.
My son, in thy sickness be not negligent: but pray unto the Lord and he will make thee whole.
Leave off from sin, and order thine hands aright, and cleanse thy heart from all wickedness.
Give a sweet savor, and a memorial of fine flour: and make a fat offering as not being.
Then give place to the physician, for the Lord hath created him: let him not go from thee, for thou hast need of him.
Sirach (Ecclesiasticus) 38: 9-12
What Our Spiritual Healing Entails
This involves asking God for forgiveness and promising to live an obedient life. You stop doing things that contradict his laws and commandments. If the patient hasn’t accepted Christ as Lord and Saviour, we lead them to do so.
We can also arrange a way for patients who want to be baptized to do so.
And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.
After reconciling to God, you don’t just stop there. You live a life of active service before him. There are many ways you can serve God and we help our patients show them the various ways they can do this.
And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
While you are on your healing journey, run away from all sins and unrighteousness.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
Proverbs 3: 7-8
The verse above is self-explanatory, drop all your human wisdom, and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit and the word of God.
Intense bible reading and prayers
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
|We encourage our patients to pray to the Lord daily at specific times and they are to read a certain number of bible chapters daily. All these are done to feed and strengthen the spirit man and help them heal fast.
vow, sacrifices, tithes, and offerings
We encourage our patients to give offerings and even tithes in their local church where they worship.
Vows and sacrifices also help bring speedy answers to prayers. A lot of people have healed from chronic diseases by making vows or sacrificing something. God honors this when you do it.
We are not scared to place sick people on fasting, that’s what the body even needs in cases of chronic and degenerative conditions. Fasting in, this case, is not dry, it is a therapeutic fast (mainly juice fast) but bible reading and prayers are done alongside.
