CAN YOU CLAIM HEALING WHILE TRASHING YOUR BODY?

TTN Ministry -- Can You Claim Healing Scripture While Trashing Your Body

In this teaching, Coach Arthur shares a short message about can Christians claim healing even though they are eating garbage, not willing to exercise and are overweight?

Something to ponder about…

Can you claim healing scriptures and pray for healing when you are eating garbage and not doing any exercise?

I have personally been struggling with people claiming healing scriptures and asking for prayer while they keep eating fast food and keep feeding their body with garbage and also refuse to do any kind of exercise.

What do you think about that?  Is that right?

I personally have no problem understanding that sometimes God in His mercy and grace will do a supernatural miracle, but if we as Christians claim total healing in faith .. can we use healing scriptures if we are not willing to eat fruit and vegetables and do some cardio exercise on a regular basis?

19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
1 Corinthians 6:19 NKJV

8 For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.
1 Timothy 4:8 NKJV

This is my personal belief as I have been wrestling with this.

No, we as Christians can’t claim healing scriptures if we are not willing to change our lives and do what we know is right.

Before we can claim any kind of healing scripture I personally believe we need to first step out in faith.

Meaning that when we as Christians put actions to what we believe…

eating fruits and vegetables … eating much smaller portions of meat and avoid any kind of sugar and processed food.

So taking actions .. then yes we can believe God for healing us…

James clearly states…

22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
James 1:22-25 NKJV

Although I am aware that there are many other factors that contribute to being healthy like…

Stop listening to garbage and instead listen to uplifting and positive things. Stop reading gossip stuff but instead feed your mind with uplifting stuff. Stop complaining and judging .. laugh more in life .. pray and meditate daily .. be thankful … forgive .. etc. etc.

However, for this teaching, I am just focusing mainly on the food we consume…

Let me know what you think.
Very curious what you think and believe.

Let me know your thoughts…

Hope this was helpful.

IS BEING FAT A SIN?

TTN Ministry -- Is Being Fat A Sin Is being fat a sin? Is being fat considered a sin? What about being obese? What does the bible say about being gluttonous? Find out here by clicking the image above or the video below. Be blessed!

Is being fat a sin?
Is being obese a sin?
Is being a glutton a sin?

What is the definition of a glutton?
“A person who eats or drinks excessively.”

What is excessive?
Excessive means eating or drinking more than necessary or what our body needs.

Just putting this in different wording so everyone can understand it clearly. A person who is not able to control themselves or in other words are addicted. Can’t live without.

An easy way to test if you are addicted to food is to try to fast on water alone for at least 7 days.
If you are having cravings and uncontrollable passion for food or sugar it means you are addicted. The body doesn’t need food that much. Can easily survive without food for 40 days.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), obesity is now the number one health threat facing Americans

A new study recently published by Purdue University Professor Ken Ferraro examined the relationships between religion and both body mass index (BMI) and obesity. The study found that church members tend to be more overweight than the general population.

The Bible condemns overindulgence in many things, including food.

Proverbs 23:20-21 says:

“20 Do not mix with winebibbers, Or with gluttonous eaters of meat;
21 For the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty, And drowsiness will clothe a man with rags.”

The church is generally quick to point to the numerous instances in scripture where our bodies are described as a temple; those passages are convenient when we want to address illegal drugs, smoking, gambling, and alcohol abuse. But rarely, if ever, do we address the sin of overeating, because of lack of self-control.

When used properly, food should satisfy our bodies’ needs. The problem is when we overindulge with no sensitivity to hunger.

When we look to food to comfort us, soothe our emotions, solve our problems, or make us happy, we are placing food before God. Using food to satisfy our spiritual needs is a sin.

Do you not know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own

(1 Corinthians 6:19)

Obesity rates are rising rapidly, so do rates of diseases associated with obesity.

There are more obese US adults than those who are just overweight. According to a study in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), in 2008, the obesity rate among adult Americans was estimated at 32.2% for men and 35.5% for women; these rates were roughly confirmed by the CDC again for 2009–2010.

In a press release by the CDC, director Jeffrey P. Koplan said, “Overweight and physical inactivity account for more than three hundred thousand premature deaths each year in the U.S., second only to tobacco-related deaths. Obesity is an epidemic and should be taken as seriously as any infectious disease epidemic. Obesity and overweight are linked to the nation’s number one killer — heart disease — as well as diabetes and other chronic conditions.”

7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. Galatians 6:7 NKJV

Overweight and obese people are at increased risk for developing conditions like coronary heart disease (CHD), diabetes, stroke, hypertension, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, asthma, and other breathing problems, cancer, and even death.

For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body (1 Corinthians 6:20).

Not only is obesity poor stewardship of the body, but it’s also poor financial stewardship.

The estimated annual costs associated with overweight and obesity in the U.S. are just under $123 billion.

(About $64 billion in direct health care costs for preventive, diagnostic, and treatment services. Plus almost $59 billion for indirect costs such as loss of wages by people who are unable to work and the value of future earnings lost because of premature death.)

Overeating Indicates Walking in the Flesh Rather Than the Spirit

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control. Against such things, there is no law (Galatians 5:22-23).

A Disciplined Life Honors God

Daniel is a great example of a person who demonstrated discipline when it came to eating. King Nebuchadnezzar brought Daniel and several other young men to him: The king assigned them daily provisions from the royal food and from the wine that he drank (Daniel 1:5).

However, Daniel determined that he would not defile himself with the king’s food or with the wine he drank (v. 8).

Daniel requested the king to test him with those who are eating the king’s food. (v. 13-14).

At the end of 10 days, they looked better and healthier than all the young men who were eating the king’s food.
So the guard continued to give them vegetables.

God gave these four young men knowledge and understanding in every kind of literature and wisdom. Daniel also understood visions and dreams of every kind (v. 15-17).

Daniel and his friends showed the wisdom of eating properly by including fresh vegetables in their diets instead of overindulging on the king’s rich foods.

They also demonstrated that by placing the correct emphasis on food as a tool to nourish our physical bodies instead of yielding to our lust for food, we are healthier and better able to follow God’s call.

So is gluttony or overeating a sin? Gluttony means to eat too much (excessive) .. so gorging on food could, indeed, be considered sinful, but the state of being overweight might not be due
to overeating, so it would be misleading and unkind to declare it a sin to be overweight.

If I had to summarize it: overeating is considered a sin and can lead us to become overweight, but being overweight is not, in and of itself, a sin.

Quoting Gary Thomas: “So I go to war against gluttony and indulgence not because I want God to love me more, but because God, who already loves me perfectly, warns me that gluttony and excess are my enemies—regardless of how good they may sometimes feel. I go to war against gluttony not to build a body that others admire, but to maintain a soul “prepared for every good work” that God can use to bless others.

I go to war against gluttony because those who have walked closely with God—from the early fourth century all the way through the nineteenth— warn me that overeating dulls me to God’s accepting presence, makes me more vulnerable to other sins, negatively affects my relationships
with other people, and robs me of the joy rightfully mine as an adopted, deeply loved,
and accepted child of God.”

Hope this was helpful.

BEING MARRIED…WOW, SO GOOD!

Teaching the Nations -- Being Married...Wow, so good

On this teaching, Coach Arthur Peter will share two basic principles on how to have a WOW marriage. To listen to the message, please click the image above or the video below.

Will be sharing some basic principles of how to have a marriage from heaven. You see there are some basic principles in the Bible that can help your marriage.

When you have been married you will notice quick enough that there are some differences in men and women. I don’t care what the feminist movement is saying.

Men and Women are different and if you want your marriage to work, you have to stop believing the lies the feminist movement is spreading and look at the Bible as your guide.

Remember it is God who created us and since it is God who created us, He has a manual how each person functions best. The same applies to marriage. There are some basic principles that will help your marriage in the right direction. I will be sharing 2 basic principles .. apply them and your marriage will change dramatically.

3 Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5 Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

1 Corinthians 7:3-5 NKJV

PRINCIPLE 1:

Husband needs to make sure to give his wife a lot of affection. What does this mean .. the word affection means to cuddle your wife, give her kisses, tell her you love her (daily), give her some of your time, be just with her, go for a date, have a meal with her, bring her sometimes something she likes (chocolates, flowers, etc.). Show her how special she is to you as a husband. We kind of sometimes forget that in our busyness and take her love for granted. However for husband showing your wife affection is not really an option it is part of marriage. If you are not willing to show her affection don’t get married. It is just that simple.

Verse 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.

This simply means that when married you can’t just think about yourself. Your body also belongs to your partner. This means things like having sex. If your partner wants to have sex, it should not be an issue. Wives stop making excuses (being tired, not in the mood, don’t feel like it, headache). Make love with your husband daily and even more if he desires. It is part of your marital commitment.

You see men are more physical than females. This means that the way you look and dress is very important for your husband. Look good for your husband (wear nice clothes even when home and not only when you go out, use make-up, watch your weight)

You see when you get married there are certain commitments that come with it. If you are not willing to fulfill those commitments you should not get married.

The husband should give their wives the affection they need and crave for and wives should give their husbands all the sex they desire.

Guys just as important as sex is for you, so is showing affection to your wife.

Wives just as important affection is for you, so is having regular sex with your husband for him.

22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.
33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
Eph. 5:22-23 / 33 NKJV

7 Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.
1 Peter 3:7 NKJV

PRINCIPLE 2

Guys, take care of your wife by providing for her and be a gentleman by providing her with security
Make her feel you are going to take care and protect her no matter what happens

Husbands, the biggest need of a woman is to have a place where she feels secure. She doesn’t have to worry about her daily needs. Take away her fears and insecurities she has. Take responsibility as a husband and lead the family as you think is best.

You see when God created heaven and earth the man was created to be the provider. Work six days and rest on the seventh day. As a husband, we are responsible for the financial and wellbeing of the household.
That is why many men are afraid to get married. It is something every man has deep inside of them. The guy is there to take care of the family. You have to be willing to do whatever is in your power to take care of your family. That is your responsibility and not your wife. She can help you, but the end responsibility is yours as a husband. So stop being lazy and take responsibility and work 6 days a week. God says if we work, He will provide. Step out in faith and let God do the rest.

Personally, I would recommend you to take at least 1-day rest. It will help you physically and mentally. Use that day of rest to spend time with your wife and kids. Do things together. Have fun with your precious family. Cuddle your wife. Enjoy God’s blessing. Enjoy the fruit of your labor.

Wives, submit to your husband and respect them as the leader in the house

The biggest need of the husband is to know that his wife is totally behind him. Supporting him in everything. You see when a husband has a wife that totally stands behind him and supports him in everything. Nothing will be impossible for him. You will ignite in his energy and make the best come out of him. You see a guy can only be successful with a supportive wife. If his wife is not behind him, it will be very hard for the husband to ever succeed and take care of the family. The wife is the pillar behind the husband’s success.

Wives, support your husband

Stop complaining, criticizing and nagging. It totally ruins your marriage. You see the biggest reason why a husband gets a divorce or ends up with another woman is that he doesn’t feel like he is respected in his household. His wife is making him feel like he is a nobody. When you start doing that as a wife and not following God’s guidance (respect), you can be 99% assured your marriage will end up in a divorce. Start respecting your husband and support him where you can. Love him as a guy and stop trying to change him.

Follow these 2 basic principles for your marriage and WOW .. it will be awesome.

Recap:
Principle 1 Affection vs Body
Principle 2 Provider vs Respect

SHORT VIDEO: STOP STEALING — YES, PIRACY IS A SIN

 Teaching the Nations -- Stop StealingPiracy is a problem that is costing businesses billions of loss each year. It is clearly a huge problem that is putting pressure on legitimate businesses, producers or makers, talents and their family’s income yet among many Christians, we do not seem to realize the sin in doing it. In this very short video, TTN Ministry is giving a reminder to both encourage and challenge people, especially us Christians in this area.

 

STOP GIVING, IT’S NOT BIBLICAL

Teaching the Nations -- Stop Giving, It Is Not BiblicalThis teaching is the latest from TTN Ministry’s Teachingthenations.com from Coach Arthur Peter. Here he will share what he has learned and the effects he had seen on people when they will just be given monetary gifts or donations particularly the poor people (in mind and in status) and the Church in general.

To listen to this message, please click on the image above or the youtube link below. Be blessed and be encouraged!

 

2 Thessalonians 3:10 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.

 

Before I share teaching let me make one thing clear. I am not talking about emergency circumstances. Where you help someone who through bad luck are having problems, back on their feet again.

For example … house burns down, hurricane lost a home, floods, etc. etc.

2 Thessalonians 3:10 (NKJV)

10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.

Basic teaching in Bible is that all of humanity was created to work .. Genesis .. 6 days a week and 1 day a week rest.

Basic principle .. if we don’t work, we don’t eat.

In other words .. if we are not working, we will go hungry.

If this is true then this means that anyone who is not working cannot expect to have enough money to pay their bills.

So does this mean the church should not help the poor? We see in the Bible that the church was helping the poor, but let us see who the church considers really to be poor…

5 Now she who is really a widow, and left alone, trusts in God and continues in supplications and prayers night and day. 6 But she who lives in pleasure is dead while she lives.
9 Do not let a widow under sixty years old be taken into the number, and not unless she has been the wife of one man, 10 well reported for good works: if she has brought up children, if she has lodged strangers, if she has washed the saints’ feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed every good work.
1 Timothy 5:5-6; 9-10 NKJV

We see here the Apostle Paul giving advice to Timothy who the church should help. Who would be considered worthy of help?

Notice the following conditions:
First, has to be alone – no family
Second, Christian
Third, praying person (intercessor)
Fourth, 60 years or older
Fifth, very active in doing volunteer work not only now but also in the past .. reputation

PROBLEMS OF GIVING IRRESPONSIBLE

1. Discourages working and creates laziness
2. Creates a wrong mentality – my right
3. Stops people using their gifts
4. Stops the growth of the country
5. Demolishes Self Confidence

BEING MISSIONARY

Lots of people are giving to charity, churches but the real people who need it don’t get it. Why?

People and Churches are not giving biblical!!

The money that is been given is been given to the wrong places. Check the charity you are supporting .. most likely 70-80% goes to salaries, marketing, etc. and if you are lucky about 20%-30% goes to the purpose of giving, however most likely it is lower .. maybe 10%

Same giving to Third world country projects.

Having worked now in a Third world country for at least 13 years as a missionary…

It is sad to say .. most Christian organizations and pastors are corrupt. You are lucky if any of your donations ever reach their destiny. If we would follow the above mentioned biblical requirement for giving most likely no one would qualify.

That is why we created TTN Ministry

Through this organization, we are working on setting up a basic structure, where we aim to give at least 90% (10% will be used for admin cost) of the funds to where it was directed.

Also, any missionary, pastor, children that are supported through our organization has to follow some strict guidelines and will be held accountable for how they use their time and money that was given.

Hope this was helpful.
