The diagnosis of an autoimmune disease is more likely than not a life sentence. According to the medical community, there is no known cause and the best they can do is attempt to reduce the symptoms.
According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, in the US alone, about 200 people are being diagnosed with M.S. every week! That is only one of many autoimmune diseases; that doesn’t even include, Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease or Diabetes 1, to name a few.
At Be in Health® ministries, we have found answers and results that the medical community has not been able to come to because we look at a person, according to scripture, as a triune being. Meaning we are a spirit, we have a soul and we live in a body. What is so often overlooked or misunderstood is the connection between these three major parts of our being.
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:23
The medical community can only treat what it can see; but humans are so much more complex than that. What we have found, in over 30 years of observation and research in the medical field, is that how we think and what we believe, directly affects our bodies.
Autoimmune diseases are a classic example of this. An autoimmune disease occurs when the body begins attacking itself. God designed the immune system with white corpuscles, killer cells, macrophages and T-cells to be able to identify rogue cancer cells, viruses and bacteria as invaders and then attack and destroy them. What happens in an autoimmune disease is that the white corpuscles take a command from something invisible, and it’s not the Creator. They begin to ignore the invaders that they were designed to target; they wave them on their journey through the body and say, “You’re not the enemy. The real enemy is this person. Have a nice day!” These white corpuscles then target and begin to eat at a person’s own cells and tissues!
Multiple Sclerosis is what occurs when the white corpuscles target and begin to eat the myelin sheath around the nerves. In lupus, they attack the connective tissues of the organs. Crohn’s disease is when the white corpuscles begin to eat the lining of the colon. When they attack the pancreas a person will have Diabetes 1. Psoriasis occurs when the white corpuscles attack the external tissue on your arms, joints or your hands. Scleroderma occurs when the white corpuscles begin to attack the connective tissue and skin, and the actual covering of the organs and begin to crystallize it, making it plastic so that it cannot breathe as part of your body. Even Alzheimer’s disease is considered an autoimmune disease. Only in this case, the white corpuscles create a plaque or inflammation in the neurological pathways of a person’s brain which subsequently blocks or diverts a person’s thoughts. The white corpuscles have decided the pathways of thought, memory and recall are the real enemy.
We know that a white corpuscle can’t actually think or have its own thoughts so there must be something driving them to act against their nature, which is to protect the body. At Be in Health®, we are tracking an invisible kingdom. It’s able to trigger viruses. It’s able to release genetic defects into physiological motion. It’s able to release spirits of death and spirits of infirmity. We know that spirits of infirmity exist because Jesus cast them out in conjunction with disease.
Let’s look at the driving force behind an autoimmune disease. Essentially, an autoimmune disease is the body attacking the body. The body would not attack the body physiologically if the person did not attack themselves spiritually and emotionally. What we have observed is that autoimmune disease is a direct biological result of a spirit and soul issue of not accepting who you are once and for all in the new birth. The enemy is coming in with thoughts that are so familiar that they sound like a person’s own thought. These thoughts bring guilt and shame and remind the person constantly of how they don’t measure up, how they don’t belong, and how they aren’t worthy– basically the enemy has caused them to hate themselves, to reject themselves and to victimize themselves bringing loads of shame. Shame is a dangerous sin because it does not let a person accept God’s righteousness in them. It holds all of their failures and shortcomings over their head and keeps them from being able to receive the freedom that they have been given through Christ. The Word says that not even God holds those things against us once we’ve repented.
He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, [so] great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, [so] far hath he removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:10-12
Once a person has come into agreement with these lies about themselves, a spirit of death and infirmity now have the right to join them. Their bodies, therefore, respond to that way of thinking and to those evil spirits which then can manipulate the function of the white corpuscles in the immune system.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly. John 10:10
Let’s look at the heart of the matter. Maybe a person with an autoimmune disease hasn’t been properly loved or covered by someone who was supposed to. Maybe they’ve been rejected or abandoned. Maybe they have even been abused or victimized. No matter what the case, they need to realize that Father God has accepted them and that they are unconditionally loved by Him. It doesn’t matter anymore what someone else said or did, what matters is lining up with what Father God thinks.
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
We, as the children of God, have been given the power over these evil spirits. It’s time to come out of the enemy’s victimization. We are not a victim. Someone may have treated us that way but that is not who we are. When a child of God rises up, finds their identity and remembers who they were created to be, when they stop listening to lies, when they stop attacking themselves and blaming themselves and making themselves the enemy, when they recognize who their real enemy is, then their body will stop attacking itself. That is true freedom, friends. We challenge you, find out who you are and why you’re important and ask Father God to show you the hidden things in your heart so that He can renew your mind and refresh your spirit.
