The blocks to healing are just as important as the spiritual roots of disease! The book, A More Excellent Way describes thirty-three blocks to healing, and there are potentially many more.
Unforgiveness is the leading block to healing. Forgive! It is not optional. It is so important that we do not even minister at Be in Health and Hope of the Generations Church without first addressing this issue. If we do not deal with Unforgiveness, then we can go no further in any dimension.
It is time for a reality check. God will not stop us, whether we decide to follow the gospel of Jesus or the words of Satan and his kingdom. When we pursue that other kingdom, then it advances into our lives to gain a foothold. The Holy Spirit is grieved, because God sent the Holy Spirit to lead us into truth and confirm it and to bring peace, but we are not following Him.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. –John 16:13
When we choose death and sin, He is grieved because we have tied His hands. He will not do anything except convict us. If we harden our hearts, we will not hear conviction, and God withdraws. When that happens, we are into chastening. Most churches teach chastening as something God puts on us. That is wrong. Chastening is this: God gives us whatever we want. We choose life or death, blessings or curses. This is to be healed or not healed. Chastening is only grievous for a season, but in the end, it brings forth fruitful works of righteousness.
Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. –Hebrews 12:11
If we decide to make Satan our lord in any area of our lives, even as believers, then we receive the blessing of whatever we choose. The blessing of Satan is called the curse and comes into our lives when we follow his principles. When we have had enough, then we remember our heavenly Father and what He stands for, and come back to Him saying, “I am sorry.” The day that we tell our Father in heaven that we are sorry, we are forgiven.
God’s forgiveness for us is in direct relationship to how we forgive our brother. That is the Word. That is Truth. Forgiveness is in direct relationship to our own choice to be obedient in forgiving others, following the example of Christ.
