“that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus. God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”

Ephesians 2:5-10 NLT

      1. Continuing to encourage His leaders to know, believe, and speak His word on healing instead of going the worldly medical route. For example, our Weds. evening prayer & Bible study group led by our senior pastor studied Mark 9:14-28, which describes the disciples not being able to drive an epilepsy-producing demon from a boy. The Lord had me pray aloud before the lesson that, like the boy’s father in the upcoming lesson, we believe, but cry for Him to help us our unbelief. At the end of the lesson, the Lord moved me, a physician who knows God’s word supersedes the natural realm, to challenge everyone (including our pastor) to do as I do: next time a loved one has a grand mal seizure or has signs of a stroke or a myocardial infarction, DON’T react as someone OFthe world does by calling 911, but instead, BE a believer in Christ and call upon the Lord! Actually KNOW, BELIEVE, and SPEAK FORTH God’s word on the matter (e.g. 1 Peter 2:24; Romans 8:11; Psalm 103:3; Psalm 32; etc., etc – see ~35 page Bible study the Lord gave for me to write 2.5 years ago, https://thelordiswithus.com/looking-into-gods-word-on-the-cause-and-eradication-of-disease-2/ if the Lord so leads you…
