Covenant Day of Long Life
Call to Worship: Psalms 103:1-5
Teaching Series: I Will Restore Health
The devil is responsible for the sickness of any individual. Sickness is an oppression from the devil. All we need is to believe in the prophetic word of healing. Luke 1:45.
Subtopic: Engaging Vital Covenant Keys to Healthy Living
Keys always talk about access. Jeremiah 8:22. Why are people still sick when there is a balm in Gilead and a physician there? This is because God’s people have not gained access to the covenant keys to enjoy healthy living.
Also, some of the redeemed do not even know of the key or the presence of the physician there. Jesus is the physician in Gilead, and God’s word is the balm. Psalm 107:20, Acts 13:44.
As you hear the word of God, you are healed. Luke 6:17. Jesus is an all-round specialist. He can take care of all diseases. Mathew 9:12-13; 4:23, Luke 5:17.
When the light of the word breaks forth, one’s health springs up speedily (Isaiah 58:8), because the dominion of light over darkness is instant and unquestionable. John 1:5.
Every striking revelation that is applied disperses the power of darkness. Don’t be just hearers of the word, but be doers, because this is the reason many are sick and not healed. Job 33:22-25. Any healing not based on the word of God cannot stand the test of time.
Covenant Day of Long Life
Long life is our heritage in Christ, and it is a mystery. Isaiah 5:13, John 8:32. There is an appointed time to live on earth. Genesis 6:3, Exodus 3:26, Deuteronomy 34:7, Psalm 90:10 (David’s revelation). All covenant fathers lived beyond 120 years. For example: Abraham – Genesis 25;8, Isaac – Galatians 4:28, Jacob – Genesis 47:28, Joseph – Genesis 50:26, Joshua – Joshua 24:28. Also, Paul died at a very old age – Galatians 3:13-14. We have been redeemed to enjoy all the blessings of Abraham, of which includes long life.
Understand that the covenant of long life delivers as far as you can see. Jeremiah 1:12. God is committed to fulfilling the number of our days. Exodus 23:26, Psalms 91:16.
Why must I live long?
We have a covenant of longevity with God in redemption.
Jesus has conquered death. Revelation 1:18, Hebrews 2:14-15.
Our covenant fathers lived long.
