Yes, this perception is commonplace. You can see it take place everywhere folk abide.
We can’t help, I understand thoroughly, yes, can’t help misconstruing our prevalent “afflictions” for “The Affliction”.
Please take this proposition kindly. I don’t wish to alienate anyone. My goal in life is to be dispensed for the deliverance of my fellow Man (and Woman) from their lack of information and therefore from; their Dilemma.
I hate to see so many in the dark. Under the veil Satan has been very successful in weaving.
This is my objective in this post; (to tell you) Your Affliction, be it Anxiety, Schizophrenia, Anorexia, Bulimia, Depression, Deformity, “Aberration”, OCD’s, the list goes on…..
Is actually not your true, actual Affliction!
No, what you manifest and have been living with are but the Credentials of the Human Condition.
You see (please hear me out) it is like this; The Biblical account of the fall of man is true.
Man forfeited the Spirit of God as recorded in the Bible. He did not esteem God’s word, His warning, His caution.
So it is that Humankind’s Affliction is His lack of “Life”. Real Life, the “Abundant” Life. Spirit Bereftness brings about his circumstances.
Now listen; Imagine those (and there are many) who don’t have such afflictions….
Yes, you have envied them at times, totally understandable, but…..
You have a better chance of coming to the knowledge of God than they.
Only the sick will require the Physician.
Those who have it smooth, might smoothly remain in the dark.
Yes the Greeks had it correct; Psychosoma
psychosomatic (adj.) 1847, “pertaining to the relation between mind and body,” from Greek psykhe- “mind” (see psyche) + somatikos, from soma (genitive somatos) “body” (see somato-). Applied from 1938 to physical disorders with psychological causes. Etymologically it could as easily apply to emotional disorders with physical causes, but it is rarely used as such.
This doesn’t mean that you imagine your illness, uh, uh no.This means that your symptoms are a reflection of the very alive conflict that takes place within your mind (soul). Therefore authenticating the Word.
The Natural mind is at enmity with God.
Unhappy, dissatisfied, unfulfilled, in conflict.
Psychology needs a helping hand. If they could, just not relegate the Biblical Account to Myth, they would be well on their way with the head start of their knowledge.
This is why I purport that there is a Biblical Psychology offered within the Pages of The Bible.
Your symptoms are but manifestations of the actual true Affliction which we possess.
Your symptoms are the Creds, yes, the Credentials of that Affliction, being Spirit of God bereft, having been born of Adam.
Jesus is described as the second Adam from Above.
Rightly so, you point out, “But I am a Christian, a believer.”
Okay two things, naturally, I can conclude;
A) Your faith needs a bigger target (improved with knowledge of Him, more Knowledge), thereby availing more Spirit infilling (by this I don’t mean; expect healing as deliverance. Deliverance can be a state of mind.) or…..
B) Likely, with the presence of the creds of your Affliction, and a faith reinvigorated with a conscious knowledge advanced You will be a better vessel, a better instrument of God.
Undoubtedly, you have already begun to prove this (above).
