Outside of the Bible, my absolute favorite book is “Greater Works: Experiencing God’s Power” by Smith Wigglesworth

It’s over 550 pages of his sermons, updated by Whitaker House publishing. I’ve personally read it at least 60 times – because God’s used it so much in my life!

  1. There is no sickness with God nor is there sickness for the true children of God. Most believers are lost and deceived in their beliefs since they do not understand that sickness comes from sin and the devil. So if you currently have an affliction or you are someone who can get sick then you clearly are living in sin and you certainly are not a Christian. You may believe otherwise but you are only fooling yourself since your sin and your sickness is proving that you are a deceived believer who lacks knowledge of scripture. You clearly are unaware of the blessing that Jesus provided for all of mankind and this is why you have never learned how to overcome your sin and your sicknesses.

    I am a sanctified disciple of Jesus Christ who can no longer sin nor can I ever get sick and Jesus has given me wisdom about scripture that very very few will ever possess. So I will warn you not to challenge what I am relating since if you disagree then you will be denying truth and you will blaspheme the Spirit with your lies.

    Realize that there is not even one scripture where God ever stated that a person who possesses sin and sickness in their life is His child so if you can still sin and you can still get sick then you definitely are not a child of God. Scripture definitely relates that if you do sin then you are of the devil and if you have afflictions then you are a sinner who does not know God.

    “He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.”
    ‭‭I John‬ ‭3:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Only a very small amount of believers truly understand God and scripture and this is why scripture relates that only a remnant will be saved since most believers are completely deceived in their beliefs and they are destined to perish in their sin and their ignorance of truth. Most do not even understand the difference between a Believer, a Disciple, a Christian and a Apostle and so I will now explain.

    “Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, The remnant will be saved.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭9:27‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    When you first repent of your sins and you accept Jesus into your life you are now a believer but you are still deceived and ignorant about scripture since you have never been sanctified in truth by the Holy Spirit. This is why a believer will still possesses sin and sickness in their life since they still lack knowledge in the word of God.

    Once a believer accepts Jesus into their life they were then commanded to surrender their will to the Holy Spirit so that they may allow the Spirt to teach them how to stop sinning. This purification process is called sanctification and it can only be achieved by understanding how to test the Spirits as commanded in 1 John 4. Sanctification takes years and it requires our faith, patience, suffering and endurance since the Holy Spirit teaches us how to overcome our sins. Once we learn how to overcome our sins we now have overcome our sicknesses since afflictions come from sin and the devil. Sadly the vast majority of believers never allow this process to occur since they are deceived in their beliefs and so they remain in their sin and their ignorance their entire lives. Others will actually fall away during the sanctification process just as Judas certainly did and Jesus relates these various believers in the parable of the sower in Luke 8:11-15. Not many believers actually make it through God’s sanctification process and this is why it is referred to as the narrow gate.

    “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:13-14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    If a believer does surrender their will to God’s purification process they now become a disciple since they are now learning scripture directly from Jesus Himself. Jesus will now teach His disciple how to live just as He did since He now dwells inside His true children. A disciple means “a student who learns from his teacher.” This is why scripture relates that Jesus is our one and only teacher and this is also why the vast majority of religions and preachers are nothing more then false prophets who are only leading believers astray.

    It is during the sanctification process that the Holy Spirit teaches us how to live Holy and righteously just as God commanded and He does this by showing us how to overcome our sins. Sanctification is kind of similar to what Jesus endured in the wilderness for 40 days since the Spirit has us confront the devil’s temptations head on. If you end up completing God’s purification process you are now a Christian who is sanctified in truth and you are a sanctified disciple of Jesus Christ who can no longer sin. This is when you are actually born again since a child born of God is someone who lives “exactly like Christ” and they do not sin. This is how the term Christian came about since the original disciples lived exactly like Christ.

    Most believers do not realize that Jesus had to train his twelve chosen disciples for three years before they became His apostles. An apostle means someone who is sent, a messenger. Many overlook the prayer that Jesus made for His disciples in John 17:6-19 where He asked His Father to sanctify His disciples in truth. So the disciples had to be sanctified in truth before Jesus could use them as His apostles, His messengers. So an apostle is someone who is a messenger from God and they possess the power of God to prove their anointment.

    Realize that God did not instruct us or command us to explain scripture to anyone but yet most are foolishly believing that it is their duty to try and lead others to Jesus. Many deceived believers do not understand that the Great Commission was for God’s chosen disciples who were trained by Jesus and who were sanctified in God’s truth. It was not meant for every believer of Jesus Christ to teach and that is simply a lie that is being fabricated by the devil’s many false ministers.

    You might now begin to understand why the majority of believers are nothing more then children of the devil since they are ignorantly blaspheming the Spirit of truth when they willingly relate their misguided beliefs. These ignorant souls were never taught scripture by Jesus nor did they allow Jesus to sanctify their heart in God’s truth. So they are simply spreading their lies about scripture and they are condemning themselves by leading others into sin.

    “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭18:6-7‬ ‭NKJV‬

    “My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment. For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.”
    ‭‭James‬ ‭3:1-2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Many believers are ignorantly believing that Jesus came to forgive our past, present and future sins. This spoken untruth is having people believe that they can continue in a life of sin and then simply repent and God will forgive them over and over. This is why many believe that if they repent just before they die then Jesus will save their sinful soul. This twisted reasoning would mean that you can continue to steal and then simply repent. You can then lie and then repent. You can then murder and simply repent. You can keep committing whatever sin you desire and simply repent afterwards and you will always be forgiven. This is simply nonsense that is fabricated by the devil to make you believe that you will always sin.

    Jesus came to call sinners to repentance since we are all born in sin. This meant for us to stop sinning entirely and to start living holy and righteously just as God commanded. Jesus came to forgive us of the sins that we have already committed and this occurs at the moment that we repent of our sins and we accept Jesus and His Holy Spirit into our life. Once we receive His Holy Spirit we were then commanded to surrender our will to God so that we would allow the Holy Spirit to sanctify our heart in God’s truth. As I stated before, this can only be achieved by understanding how to test the Spirits as commanded in 1 John 4.

    So a Christian is someone who is sanctified in truth and they can easily discern a true Christian from a deceived believer in seconds since they now possess the mind of Christ and they are able to judge all things. They can no longer sin nor can they ever get sick since they are now born of God and the devil can no longer touch them with sickness or disabilities. I have overcome sin and sickness in my own life and this is why God has me relating His blessings in my writings and in my videos.

    “These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.”
    ‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭2:13-16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    “We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.”
    ‭‭I John‬ ‭5:18‬ ‭NKJV
