The Ultimate Healing
Sometimes we pray and pray for healing, but our loved one dies. ” Why didn’t God answer our prayers? Was it because we didn’t have enough faith? Did we do something wrong?”
In reality God gave the ultimate of healing, for to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Each day we are on this earth we are in the process of dying. It isn’t until we leave these fragile bodies that we will know what it is like to really live. Once we are with HIM we will be forever in process of living. We will be given new bodies that will never grow old. We will live in a place filled with love. A place where there is no competition, hate, anger, or selfishness. Our deepest longings for love, acceptance and security will be met. The love of God will encompass our hearts, minds and lives totally. We will walk in the garden with Him once again and be embraced by His love. There will be no misunderstandings and we will no longer need to cover up anything. We will be completely known and completely loved…..
I had a vision of few months ago in which God opened the door to the Garden of Eden to me. He said, ” I want you to eat of the tree of life.”
“Oh no,” I thought. “He kicked Adam and Eve out of the garden so they would not eat of the tree of life and live forever in a sinful state.”
In the vision I was suddenly taken to the tree of life. As I looked up I heard these words, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
Then I heard, “Take eat, this is my body which was broken for you. Do this and remember ME. Drink, this is the blood of the new covenant poured out for your sins.”
Jesus is the tree of LIFE. When we take Him into our lives we receive eternal life. He becomes a part of us and we receive His righteousness. When Adam and Eve ate of the apple they ate of the devil’s lies and became a part of Satan’s kingdom which ends in death. When we eat of the Tree of Life which is Jesus Christ we become a part of the Kingdom of God which is love, joy, peace, truth, power, compassion and holiness, the true beginning of life. He promises, “Because I live, you shall live also.” Jesus is the resurrection. If you have not eaten of the tree of life, what are you waiting for?We have already eaten of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Most of us know the bitterness of that fruit. Our loving Father is calling us to eat of the tree of life.
Come to the garden with me. Reach up to Jesus and let Him show you the way to eternal life. He will wash away the bondage’s and sins of your past with the blood of His sacrifice and fill you with His love and truth.
