“For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones” Ephesians 5:30 (KJV)
Who are we? What advantage do we have for being Christians? Where do we stand in life? Christianity is a life of all round victory – victory for the spirit, victory for the mind and victory for the body.
For the spirit, Christianity is ‘being one spirit with God’ (I Cor. 6:17). For the mind, Christianity is ‘having the mind of Christ’ (I Cor. 2:16). For the body, Christianity is “being flesh of Jesus’ flesh and bone of his bones”.
Don’t embrace a partial Christianity. Embrace a total Christianity – a Christianity that presents salvation for the spirit, for the soul and for the body.
What does it mean to be flesh of Jesus’ flesh and bone of his bones? It means whatever cannot affect his flesh and his bones should not affect yours. It means that you share in his divine immunity to sickness and disease. It means the life that flows in the flesh and bones of Jesus now flows in you. It means the health of Christ is in you.
Can you see it? Can you believe it? Walking in the divine health that God has given to us is not a matter of prayer and fasting. It is a matter of spiritual discovery. Discover today who you are. Embrace your new identity and enter into a whole new life of victory over sickness and disease.

Coronary heart disease, also known as ischaemic heart disease is the commonest form of heart disease and the single most important cause of premature death in the developed world.
It is a disease of the coronary arteries which are the blood vessels responsible for supplying blood and oxygen to the tissues of the heart. It manifests with symptoms of chest pain and palpitations. There could be swelling of the legs due to heart failure and in some cases it may lead to sudden death.
But are there things we could do to prevent developing coronary heart disease. Certainly yes! Here are some things you could do to insure yourself against the disease.
- Avoid tobacco smoking – tobacco is the most important avoidable cause of coronary heart disease
- Reduce your cholesterol intake – cholesterol is found in foods like eggs, butter and certain oils. High levels in the blood predispose to the disease
- Increase your physical activity – a sedentary (inactive) lifestyle predisposes to coronary artery disease. Regular exercise is prescribed
- Stay away from heavy drinking – heavy drinking is associated with hypertension and other cardiac events which may lead to the development of coronary artery disease
Taking these four precautions will go a long way in helping you prevent coronary heart disease.
I love you and God bless you.

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” – III John 2.
What kind of father do we have? What kind of God is he? Sometimes believers hold an extra-biblical view of God. A view of God that is nothing more than the witty intervention of an active imagination. That’s why they often end up frustrated in their lives.
‘God is love responding to faith’. That’s who God is. When we walk by faith, we experience his love. Now, if love were to have a wish, what do you think will be Love’s highest wish for the loved? The answer is in III John 2.
We don’t have to climb the mountains or sail the seas to discover Love’s highest wish for us. Love’s highest wish is for us to PROSPER and BE IN HEALTH even as our soul prospers.
Some Christians seem not to be clear as to whether it is the will of God for them to enjoy a life of absolute health. Not only is it the will of God, it is his highest wish.
God loves you. God believes in you and God wants the best for you. God doesn’t inflict his children with sickness or ‘bless’ them with disease. No! He heals all their sicknesses and takes away their diseases because his highest wish for them is that they PROSPER and BE IN HEALTH.
