14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
James 5:14 KJV
If there is a spiritual sin issue behind high blood pressure, then address that sin issue; minister discipleship instead of healing.
If behind high blood pressure there is a spiritual sin issue, then if God healed that person of high blood pressure, but let them keep the spiritual defect, of which high blood pressure is a fruit, then two things would happen.
- God would be establishing evil in the earth through us because He would be letting us have our blessing, but keep the sin issue. God is more interested in establishing righteousness in the earth through us than He is in healing us of our diseases. This is a very important, key point.
- Many Christians have asked God to become co-dependent with them in disease. They want to be healed, but don’t want to give up their sin.
One definition or paraphrase of co-dependency is “calling evil good in the name of love”.
We say, “If God loved me, He would heal me.”
If we loved God, we would keep His commandments, and we wouldn’t need healing. No. Health is automatically ours if we are a doer of the Word.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
John 14:21 KJV
See Deuteronomy 28 for the blessings (for keeping His commandments) and the Curses (for not keeping His commandments).
