As a believer in Jesus as Lord and Savior of my life, it makes me cringe when I hear other believers tell me about their diseases and sickness being hereditary. Have you ever thought about that? Does the bible not tell us that we are no longer even alive, but it is Christ that lives within us? You have the Heredity of Christ!
“20I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.”
See I use to be an unbelieving believer. I use to think that His accomplishments were good enough to get me into heaven, but I did not believe that they were good enough for the reality of heaven to come and burn inside of me. Please do not feel condemned if you are currently struggling with a disease that you believe may be hereditary, that is not the intention of this article. My purpose is to encourage you in the truth of God’s word for us pertaining to what really is our inheritance when it comes to sickness, disease, and even mental illness.
The definition of the word inheritance is you receiving what some one else has earned. The bible tells us that we are not just heirs, but co-heirs
“For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children. 17And since we are his children, we are his heirs.”
Is there sickness in Christ? Is there disease in Christ? Is there mental illness in Christ?
Matthew 8:17Amplified Bible (AMP)
17 so that He fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: “He Himself took our infirmities [upon Himself] and carried away our diseases.”
Holman Christian Standard Bible
Yet He Himself bore our sicknesses, and He carried our pains; but we in turn regarded Him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted.
1 Corinthians 2:16Amplified Bible (AMP)
16 For who has known the mind and purposes of the Lord, so as to instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ [to be guided by His thoughts and purposes].
2 Timothy 1:7King James Version (KJV)
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
You see sickness, disease, and mental illness is not your inheritance. You have been washed clean of all of this on at when you said “I agree with what Jesus has done!” We do not have to accept this as our reality. You have the DNA of Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God flowing through your veins. He is now your reality.
The children of God have accepted a lesser reality for far too long. You are seated in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus. That being said, let me ask you a question. Is there hereditary sickness, disease, and mental illness seated in heaven.
Ephesians 2:6-7Amplified Bible (AMP)
6 And He raised us up together with Him [when we believed], and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, [because we are] in Christ Jesus, 7 [and He did this] so that in the ages to come He might [clearly] show the immeasurable andunsurpassed riches of His grace in [His] kindness toward us in Christ Jesus [by providing for our redemption].
The truth will not set you free, it is KNOWING the truth that will set you free. I hope all of the scripture I have shared with you will set you free in a new way. I even feel like there are those that will be healed when they read this article, just because they will have stepped into a reality that they did not know was available for them.
Here are a few testimonies of people who have stepped into this reality:
I would encourage you, that if you have been under the influence of the lie of hereditary sickness, to begin to contend for your healing. Jesus already did everything that was needed for you to walk right into that reality today. The bible says, “The Kingdom of God suffers violence, and the violent take it by force!” This is your moment! This is your hour!
“Lord I speak to all of those suffering right now, I commend all sickness, disease, inflammation, cancer, heart disease, mental illness to leave in the name of Jesus. I command all tumors to shrink and die. Spirit of infirmity leave in the name if Jesus! IT IS FINISHED!”
Stand in faith, I encourage you also to get faith filled believers to stand with you. Something always happens when you pray! You are a child of the Living God do not accept less than extreme health. You never read about believers in the bible dying of sickness and disease, you do however hear of them healing plenty of sick folks, and raising the dead. If you are waiting on death to be free from your pain maybe you have already crowned death your healer instead of Jesus.
