Kenneth Copeland - Speak Life Words for Healing and Good Health
TOPICS: Healing

Now let's go to the 103rd Psalm. Oh, glory to God. This is one of my absolute favorite psalms. Read it with me. Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and all that is within me bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, oh, my soul, and forget not all his benefits. Who forgiveth all thine iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases, redeems your life from destruction and crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercy. All right. Now, Psalm 68:19. Blessed be the Lord who daily loads us with benefits. This is a daily thing. Every day. Every day you need to faith claim it. Every day. Every day. He forgives you your iniquities and heals you of your diseases.

Now the 107th Psalm. O give thanks unto the Lord for he is good. Say he is good. For his mercy, his hesed endures forever. Verse 17. Fools because of their transgression and because of their iniquities are afflicted. Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat and they draw near unto the gates. If they draw near unto the gates of death... Are you there with me now? Now listen. They draw near under the gates of death. Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble. He saves them out their distresses. He sent his Word and healed them and delivered them from their destruction. He sent his Word and healed them.

Now, let's go again to Proverbs 4:13. Take fast hold of instruction. Let her not go. Keep her for she is your life. My son, attend to my words. Incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes. Keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them and health... The cross reference says medicine. To all their flesh. Now, go to John 6:63. Verse 61. When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them: Does this offend you? What? And if you shall see the sons of man ascend up what... Where he was before. It is the Spirit that quickens, or makes alive. The flesh profiteths nothing. The words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit and they are life. These are life words.

Now go back to the book of Deuteronomy. Chapter 30. Now this is God speaking. I call heaven and earth to record this day against you. In other words, you don't have any excuse. That I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore, you choose life that both you and your seed may live. How do you choose it? You speak life words. You bring that seed alive by speaking it. Jesus said the sower sows the Word. So the Word is a seed. And when it gets down into your heart, it will produce whatever it is. That's the reason the Bible talks about seed so much. It began in the... In the... Actually, in the Garden of Eden. And so the seed is the source of life. Even weeds want to live. Seeds are a marvelous thing. And the whole Bible talks about words as seeds. Seeds of life. We saw it right there. Words of life. Words of death.

And that's when the Lord even back way, way, way, way, way, way, way back. While I was a student there at Oral Roberts University. And so Gloria and I made a pact, but what... And she didn't talk much, so I got in trouble more. She said I talk enough for both of us. Well, that's right. But, anyway. We had someone... We'd say, "That's your confession and I believe every word of it". I had to break the habit of saying death. The Lord scolded me about that. He said, "You stop that. Don't use the words of death and the laws of sin and death to express yourself". I said, "Well..." And I don't like this. Fantastic. That means it's a fantasy. Incredible. That means you can't trust it. Why don't we use Bible words? Marvelous. Awesome. Those are Bible words.

Tell me Brother Copeland, what am I supposed to say? It thrills me to life? Oh, what's what? What? The only reason you don't like that is because your mother and daddy taught you to say it thrills you to death. And it didn't. You lied. You didn't die. But you keep saying it and you will. Well, I'll see you tomorrow if a train don't run over me. Hahaha! And this happened in the life of a young man. In the life of Kenneth Hagin and Buddy Harrison. He kept saying, "I'll never... I'll never reach 40 years old". He just kept saying it. Few days before his fortieth birthday, he just started downhill and went into a coma.

Now here's what the Spirit of God said to Brother Hagin. He began to pray about it. He said certain spiritual laws... Now this is big on healing. Certain spiritual laws have been put into motion that cannot be reversed at this time. Now he and his brother were very close, almost like twins. And Brother Hagin mentioned that. He said... Brother Hagin. He said that all the time. He said it. He started saying that to me when we were just boys. He'd just get serious and say, "I'll never live to be 40". Certain spiritual laws have been put into motion. It cannot be changed at this time. Now, we can change it. Whatever they are. Well, I guess I'll just be broke all my life. You can change that, but it needs to be a constantly consistent thing. The Spirit of the Lord.

Gloria was in prayer and making notes on tapes. I was in class and she was there with the children at home. And so she would just turn the tapes of Brother Hagin and run them back and so forth. And in the middle of that, the Spirit of God said to her, "In consistency lies the power". Being consistent. Being constant. Constantly saying the same thing. Saying it and saying it until it gets down in your heart. Now Brother Hagin said it like this. You can say something. You can think thoughts and say them until they get down into your spirit and they'll change your life. Now, I was always overweight. I did not like exercise. And then the Lord turned me around by saying, "Will you get your spirit in the best condition that it can be in"? And I said, "Yes, I will".

Well, you can't do that sitting on a couch. You have to get in the Word. Will you get your soul, your mind, your will, and your emotions in the best condition it can be in? Yes, I will. Will you get your body in the best condition it can. You can't sit around on any one of the three. I said, "Yes, I will". So I was all excited. And I had committed to get in that exercise every... Get on that treadmill every day.

So I walked in there and then... In my exercise room I have an A-frame. And I walked up to that A-frame and caught those little ropes to pull it down here like this. I tell you, I was thrilled. And I caught that rope and I said, "God, I hate this". I said, "No. No, Lord. I repent. I repent". I physically felt that spirit get off my body. I said, "I love this. I love this room. And this room will change my life". And it has. And I walk in there every day and I say, "Oh, I love it in here. Look what has happened to me. I love it. I'm stronger than I've ever been". But I have to say it. Now I'm going to teach you to say something and say it:

Lord Jesus. You sacrificed your body for mine. Now I am sacrificing my body for yours.

You just got through saying you're going to have to start exercising. That's what will keep you healthy. Now it's a marvelous thing to get healed. Great. That's not wellness. That's healing. Until I heard Brother Hagin, I didn't know you could live in divine health. But you can. And I quote Gloria, "If you do what's right in the natural, and you do what's right in the supernatural, you can live in divine health. You just stay well all the time". And it takes... You have to exercise your spirit. You have to exercise your emotions and your mind and your will. And you have to exercise your body. And it all has to be based on the covenants of God. And you can find the answer to all of it in the Word of God and He'll back his Word. He said, "I will watch over my Word to perform it".

All right. Now then, let's go into Deuteronomy 28. And we know this in the 28th chapter. It shall come to pass. If you'll hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee up on high upon all nations of the earth. And all these blessings will come on you and overtake you. Don't read the 28th without reading the 27th. A lot of messed up thinking and a whole lot of real bad preaching has come out of this 28th chapter. For instance, the Lord shall smite thee with a consumption and with a fever and with an inflammation. Since when? The Lord is not out giving people the flu.

Now back when John and Kellie were small, we took our flu shot. And we started right there. Then we went to Galatians 3:13 and said, "We've been redeemed from the curse". Now, go over here to 27. I set them down in the living room. I said, "We're going to take a flu shot". And John's eyes got big. He didn't know whether he wanted to do that or not. So I had my Bible and I had opened up there at the 28th. Then at Galatians 3:13, Christ had redeemed us from the flu. So I read fever and inflammation. And then I read he's redeemed us from the flu. I read... And we did... I just did that back and forth, and back and forth, and back and forth, and back and forth, and back and forth.

And as long as they lived under our roof, they never had the flu. Or any other kind of sickness or disease. We didn't have to take them to the... Now, we would've taken them to the doctor if necessary, but it wasn't necessary. Glory to God. Learn to do these things. But now... Look over here at the 27th verse. Now, here is a people that have a covenant with God, but had lost sight of it. So the Lord God set up a situation where they could get an image of God and the devil. He didn't mention the devil, just... Just a little bit through Isaiah and no... He didn't. The Lord didn't say anything about him until you got over here in a New Testament because they'd follow him. He just had to take the blame for a lot of things.

Now, notice this. And Moses with the elders of Israel commanded the people saying, "Keep all the commandments which I command you this day, and it shall be on the day when you shall pass over Jordan". So forth. Verse 9. Moses and the priest. Moses and the priest, the Levites, spoke unto all Israel saying, "Take heed and hearken, oh, Israel. This day thou art come to the people. Thou shalt therefore obey the voice of the Lord. Moses charged the people the same day. These shall stand upon Mount Gerizim to bless the people when you're come over Jordan. Simeon and Levi and Judah and Issachar, Joseph and Benjamin. These shall stand on Mount Ebal to curse Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, Nephtali".

They divided them up. Six tribes on one side and six on the other. And listen. Large number of people out there that day. Now, if those mountains are still there. One of them is bright and lush and that was the blessing mountain. And the other one is bare and bald. That's the curse mountain. And they were shouting back and forth. This was responsive shouting. It's recorded in the book. The blessing first, and then the curse later. But that's really not the way it was going down. They were shouting back and forth to get a picture of what it would mean to follow God and keep his commandments and live in good health and prosperity. Can you see that?

The blessing of the law and the curse of the law. But now we are interested over in the curse side in the 61st verse. Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the Lord bring upon thee until thou be destroyed. Well, now we know that it's not the Lord bringing it upon you. And all of that is right here in the Pentateuch, first five books of the Bible, because in Exodus the destroyer is revealed. Glory to God. But we know from this that every sickness and every disease not even written down is a curse. It is not a blessing. And people have erroneously taken this... Not study it. Go back and study it all the way through the first covenant and find out all of these things, and find out when all of that actually happened and so forth. And then begin to preach that it's God that'll make you sick.

Well, after all the Bible said. No, the Bible didn't say that. It said the Lord would do it. I know it said that, but it didn't say that. All right. Galatians 3. Now this is what the Lord said. Galatians is a short book. Read the whole book. It is so good. Chapter three. Look. Look at that second verse. This only would I learn of you. Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law or by the hearing of faith? Now look at verse six. Even as Abraham believed God, or had faith in God. It was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham and the scripture... The scripture... Foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached. The scripture preached to Abraham. Well, the scripture's preaching to us this morning.
