Over the course of the last many years I have run into more people than I can count who have come into meetings filled with Gods Glory, Got Touched by God, Got Healed or Received a Miracle to only days later lose that Healing or Miracle and wind up right back where they started.
These kinds of things used to frustrate me (as well as others I’m sure) to absolutely no end and it wasn’t until some years ago that the Holy Spirit showed me (in my own body) why and it is because SYMPTOMS LIE!
Every time that I have been touched and healed by the Lord in my own life, those testimonies have almost always been contested and tested by the enemy. The devil will always test the waters of your situations to see if you’ll invite those conditions back into your life.
In my own personal life, I have been healed hundreds of times and all of them have been contested by the enemy with LYING SYMPTOMS of the very same things which I have been healed of.
For example, for years of my life, in wrestling with gallbladder issues, when I was healed, the enemy would try to send a spirit of infirmity after me to create those symptoms in my body once more. If I entertained those symptoms and believed the lies that he told me about losing what God gave me in His Presence and Power, it would be openly giving the enemy permission to bring it all back upon me, but if I stand upon the Truth of what Jesus Christ has bought and paid for for me and resist him the pain leaves, the lying symptoms leave and the enemy leaves!
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)
Every time that the enemy tested Jesus Christ in the wilderness, Jesus threw the Word of God back at the enemy in response to his overtures. Of course, the end result was that the enemy left and the angels came and ministered to Him.
The enemy is looking for your agreement with him! He wants to deceive us into believing that we didn’t actually receive what we really did receive from and in the Presence of God! IF YOU WANT TO RETAIN WHAT YOU GAIN IN THE THE GLORY, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO FIGHT FOR IT!!!
The spirit of infirmity is a full blown liar just like the devil himself! I have wrestled with that thing for many years in my own life, until I realized just how much of a liar he really is!
IT’S TIME TO AGREE WITH GOD AND HIS WORD AND PUT THE ENEMY IN HIS PLACE!
“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, AND WITH THE STRIPES [THAT WOUNDED] HIM WE ARE HEALED AND MADE WHOLE.” (Isaiah 53:5)
“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE THE PETITIONS THAT WE DESIRED OF HIM.” (1 John 5:14-15)
If you have been touched by God and healed or received a miracle from Him, don’t allow those lying symptoms and spirit of infirmity to rob you of what has been completely purchased for you! Jesus Christ and the Blood of His Cross has bought and paid for your complete restoration!!! You didn’t lose your healing the enemy is a complete liar and a thief.
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.” (John 10:10)
