Holiness In The Body

Beloved, we are going a step further – the effect of a pure mind on the body of man and in the flesh of man.

Beloved, the inflow of holy life into our body must produce holiness in the body, just as it does in the soul. We cannot even think holy thoughts, without them leaving their impression in our nature, in our very flesh. That same divine power in us dissolves disease, restores diseased tissues. Our flesh is purged by the divine power being transmitted from our spirit, through our soul, into our body.

I have always loved to think of the holy flesh of Jesus, not just His beautiful mind, not just the pure Spirit; but is it not blessed and sweet to contemplate the flesh cleansed and purified until His very body – His hands, His feet, His person – were just as pure by the Spirit of God as His pure soul and His pure Spirit were.

That is why Jesus was the wonderful channel He was. The Spirit of God would flow through Him just as freely, just as fully, just as powerfully as it was possible for it to flow through a holy, purified personality.

So beloved, we see that when something impure, of the character of disease, appears on your flesh and mine and we feel we are being soiled by an unholy touch, in the name of Jesus our spirit reaches up and rebukes that devilish condition, and by the Spirit of the living God we stand, believing that the Holy Spirit of God will flow through the spirit, flow through the soul, through the flesh, and remedy and heal that difficulty that is in the person.

I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you who also will do it.
