May the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23)
Right before going to the revival in Florida my family tried out a church I wanted to attend. I knew it was the right church for me and we attended there seven years until I got married in 2015. As I learned more to seek the Lord and hear from Him I had a series of ten dreams that all felt related to the hand of God dream and an idea that began to grow when I was in the hospital. I noticed there was a hole in healthcare that could be filled by Christ and the church. Hospitals mainly treat the physical body and mental conditions but do very little for the spirit and soul. We are made up of three parts and when we are down sometimes all three parts need treatment. The Christian Healthcare Commission (CHC) is an all-inclusive plan that became a three part mission to handle the other parts of our being. When Jesus sent out the twelve disciples he told them to proclaim the kingdom of heaven is near and for them to heal the sick, raise the dead and drive out demons (Mt. 10:7-8). Because they had received so much from Jesus He told them to freely give to others. We all know that Jesus miraculously healed multitudes of sick people but for whatever reason our percentage of healing in this way is much lower. This doesn’t mean we cannot bring healing to those who are weak and feeble or that they cannot be healed. What it means is that we need to do something to help healing happen. No church is any stronger than those who are most weak among them and it is our God given duty to help them heal. Phase one is all about enabling the disabled to become the Beabled. Anyone who is down and out can Beabled by a new outlook on life and the support of those around them. Even if we face death all day long we are more than conquers through Christ who loved us (Romans 8:36-37). The Beabled approach life differently they don’t only look at current circumstances but at the possitive side of life. They practice living by faith and not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7). They also believe that we can do all things through Him who strengthens us (Phil. 4:13). Beabled ministry presents these ideas in a way where members can easily grow and be strengthened in their faith.
The first phase has a lot to do with what we can do to build those in most desperate need of a touch from the Lord. Whatever we do for those who feel least we do it onto the Lord (Mt. 25:40). Phase two is about us finding our proper place in the church so that together we can grow stronger into the body of Christ. Body Builders will be a social media site with tools to help believers find their place in the body and use their gifts to reach out to others at home and across the globe. Just like our body has many members that all have different functions in the body of Christ we all have different gifts that make us have different functions. Each of our function has equal importance because we belong to eachother and together we are the universal body of Christ (Rom. 12:4-5). We all receive a gift not so much so we can be blessed but so we can be a blessing to others. Through the mosaic section on the website members would be able to reach out to other believers so that they can be used in incredible ways throughout the global church. One other feature of the site will be stories of the faith where users can share testimonies, music, revelation, teaching so we can grow together. The final phase of this revelation is a Christian Healthcare Community where we would treat every part of a person not only the body. Clinics and Hospitals would integrate with prayer, teaching and other spiritual practices to treat the spirit. The community would be funded and employed by churches and believers. There would be an insurance that would share the cost of the overall healthcare of all members and the needy. There is a hole in healthcare and through these ministries healing is possible for the whole man.
Lord I ask that we would ultimately see you as our healer and help us to know nothing is impossible through you. I ask that we would be on the look out to help those whose struggle seems more difficult than our own so that we can build them up. Please help us Lord to learn the gifts that you have given us so that we can do our function in the church. Lord we ask that a Christian Medical Community would rise up and chage the way we see healing so the whole person will be made well. In Jesus Name, Amen.

All of what Christ did was so we would believe. He told us not to believe because of what He said but in what He did (John 14:11). Every Tuesday we talk about what He did and is still doing. The best thing God’s done is send His Son so we could be saved (John 3:16). If anyone is not a believer we pray they will invite the Lord into their lives by asking Him to forgive their sins and believing that He is the Son of God.

No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16
