First the Natural Then the Spirtual

 46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. (1 Corinthians 15:46 NKJV)

Healing for your body is found in God’s covenant.  What is the sickness in your body?  It’s a sign to you that you’re not in covenant.  It doesn’t mean that you’re not born-again, or not saved.  Nor does it mean that you’re not going to heaven.  When you are saved, you are guaranteed the Presence of God, but many times you don’t feel the presence of God in you.

 

When you are dealing with the commands of God, the “Spiritual Man” isn’t the first consideration – the “Natural/Flesh Man” is.  There are things we need to do in the natural realm before you go into the spiritual.

 

Since many people have given up on the promises of the covenant in the natural realm, we think we need to be more spiritual.  In fact, what you do with your “Natural Man” behavior will tell you whether or not you will prosper.  What you do in your home is what determines whether or not you will be successful in commercial business (Leviticus 15:3 and 15:7).  If you put the spiritual ahead of the natural, you will never achieve the results you want.  That’s why tithing and trying to get ahead financially will not yield the results you desire, if in the natural, you are still constantly arguing with your spouse, mistreating them and your family, being dishonest or various other things contrary to God’s Torah.

 

If you will deal properly in the natural realm and learn how to treat your spouse, pray scripture over them, and do the various things that God has commanded in the Bible, the spiritual will come about automatically.

 

As you bear the image of the man who came from the dust of the earth, Yeshua (James 1:25); and, as you look into the Perfect Torah of Freedom, God’s Teaching and Instruction, led by the Holy Spirit, you will take care of earthly situations and loose (permit) the power of the heavenly realm to come upon you.
