In order to understand Faith-Based Healing we first must identify what it is not.
FBH is not: a practice for cooky, science-denying religious nuts.
What FBH is: FBH is essentially the spirit's ability to claim engineer to the biology it has a holdover; the human body.
Science helps us understand we are a machine, whose central console is in the brain, the master of commands. This is where science stops.
FBH picks up where science stopped, by recognizing a higher tier of order in human health.
FBH recognizes everything in the lower scientific tiers, but places on top of it, recognition of the following: Spirit.
What is Spirit. Quite simply, the spirit is the operator of the vehicle, it is an intelligent life force that animates us and when it leaves, we are proclaimed dead.
FBH recognizes the spirit's crucial role in the human being. For it is the spirit, the consciousness, and unconsciousness inhabiting the vessel, that has formed the vessel.
The spirit emerges when sperm meets egg. Once that spirit is created, it forms a body around itself, unconsciously. FBH recognizes the spirit is the very storehouse from which the being emerged. It is the source of operation.
FBH recognizes scientific labels but does not submit to them. FBH practitioners recognize the source of true power: relation and communion with the spirit who has formed a body on its own.
FBH works because it accesses a portion of the human imagination, which in reflex affects the brain to alter body chemistry, and in effect, gives control to the user to engineer the wanted quality; healing from a disease for instance.
The FBH practitioner accesses a center in their brain where dictating the order of the body's biology and chemistry can be done. For it is through our imaginations, that we respond inwardly to our external reality.
When we are told from an external source that we are in dis-ease, we begin to deteriorate inwardly, for our imaginations cannot see salvation for our circumstances. This is where people begin to cave and deteriorate and die inwardly because their imaginations have been limited in seeing a happy life for themselves. A happy life is a godly life.
In essence, these situations rob us of a happy life, and in effect, rob us of a godly life.
FBH practitioners operate on a rooftop, which is above the calamity happening in their house. On this higher tier, they recognize their relationship with God, which opens the door for what was a closed shut in the deteriorating situation. Through communication with God who is recognized as the most loving, supreme, nurturing, and sustaining force, the human being's imagination begins to open again to the possibility of a happy life, and in this imagining, their bodies chemistry is altered to take them to that happy life.
This is the miracle of FBH. The secret everyone locked in their house of disease fails to recognize. The miracle happening on the rooftop. When we touch god, god touches our mind and grants us the vision to which our body's chemistry responds.
Opponents of FBH have no idea of what it actually is, so in a parable, I wrote this article to help them. Opponents of FBH are nonbelievers, and nonbelievers are individuals who in their scorn, deny themselves opportunity on the rooftop to be shown by god a vision of a future that is greater than the calamity in their home.
Opponents of FBH, ridicule souls who did not know how to make their way up to the rooftop, and in their failure, died.
For me, it is important to implement the whole picture of healing.
FBH ← Science and Medicine
Science will always help us label the picture of our body's health at any given moment. But that photograph is not who we are. We are a sea, constantly shifting. We are not static. A diagnosis is a moment captured in a photograph of a body of water. Not accurate to how it looks at any given moment in the future.
Where deniers of FBH fail, in their worship of science, is they damn themselves to walk the corridors of the very halls which announced their disease, limiting their imaginations to this confinement. Instead of, recognizing the diagnosis, exiting the hospital, and walking to the rooftop to communicate this to God, our most loving and giving father, to be given a vision that sees them in a new photograph, beyond the label we were given hours before.
FBH is the walk to the rooftop, where practitioners receive a higher vision than the one the world gave them. It is a walk that the enemy wants no one to take. For if we do, we will be granted the vision of our salvation, and in following that vision, we will become it. This is the greatest threat to the enemy, who wants people isolated and confined in their home, speaking against those who go to the rooftop. In this way, the enemy wins and further pulls the human into disease and dispair.
