Do you know the mind-body connection is in the Bible? It is right there in first John. I couldn’t believe it when I ran into it one day. It’s the third part of that scripture, which is 1 John 4:18.
“…because fear hath torment….”
It says fear hath torment. Well, that torment is the spiritual dimension that causes the memes to be established in the phobic reality. That is the mind-body connection component of this disease.
It is that kind of fear coming out of rejection, abandonment, not being loved and victimization that makes us look over our shoulder. It makes us not want to be vulnerable anymore, always expecting to be rejected, always feeling unsafe, always feeling insecure and always feeling like we really do not belong on this planet.
Fear makes us always think someone is going to reject us, abandon us, and victimize us because that is what fear is projecting. That is how fear hath torment.
Another part to this scripture is very important.
“…He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
The person who has not been loved, cannot love. They cannot give and receive love without fear themselves and that is a greater torment. The torment is the beginning of the understanding of what causes this phobic disease, the breaking of the human heart.All we do in ministry is love on people. Tweet this! We tell them they are the best thing since peanut butter, the apple of God’s eye. We help them understand the evil in mankind that victimized them. We help them separate themselves from that so they can be healed, restored and made whole. We help them know they are no accident.
You are not the product of the sin of your ancestry. You are beautiful in creation and from the foundation of the world God planned you and here you are. I want to give you back to God out of that trash and tragedy; to give you back just the way He wanted you from the foundation of the world. That is what is happening in this ministry coast-to-coast.
There are beautiful people who like themselves again. There are beautiful people who are becoming vulnerable again.
