The Spirit Within: True Health Transformation Begins With Your Spiritual Wellness By J. Kevin Johnson
Times of Trouble
In looking at some of the events of the day, one can't help but beg the question of "where did the peace go?!" It would seem as though every time we turn around there's a new breaking story, incident, or event that's confirming our worst nightmare, or bringing to the forefront our climatic level of hope with respect to endtime events and revelation reality! The economy isn't quite where we'd like causing many of us that live from paycheck to paycheck much pain and displeasure. Race relations are becoming increasingly strained at chinese Supertrain breakneck speeds! The health of the American people is exploding towards dis-ease, malfunction, and chronic illness unlike times of recent past. And in my opinion we're trending towards moral bankruptcy without expectation of judgement.
Thus, I believe it's evident that we're living in highly unstable, chaotic, and desperate times which is why it's absolutely essential that we make sure that as we pursue optimal health, fitness, and wellness in our lives that we place greater significance on our spiritual well-being. It's important that we learn to develope, cultivate, and hone an inner peace in relationship with The Creator that will enable us to thrive while others struggle to survive.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Phillipians 4:7 KJV -- A relationship with the The Almighty through His son, Jesus, brings about an inner peace that can't be shaken if you avail yourself completely to His Spirit.
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV --The Spirit of The Almighty is what establishes the inner peace that brings about a life of fearlessness and mental freedom. We are vessals meant to be filled with the Presence of God.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16 KJV -- Your light source is the Creator. You/we are conduits that manifest His Light.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3
I was thinking about the Hebrew word of peace--Shalom! I love this word because the peace that this word encapsulates is a holistic, all encompassing, and beautiful word depicting a state of completeness that can only be obtained through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit of The Almighty Himself. True transformation from a state of dis-ease, chronic illness, mental tormenting, unhealthy emotional soul ties, and spiritual deadness can only begin when the divine spark placed in each of us by our Creator connects with the eternal fire of the Living throne of G_d and fanned into a flame of passionate and purposeful living!
7965 Shalom means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. Shalom comes from the root verb shalom meaning to be complete, perfect and full. In modern Hebrew the obviously related word Shelem means to pay for, and Shulam means to be fully paid.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
In connection with the Holy Spirit of G_d we begin the journey of spiraling up closer to the heart of G_d increasing in vibration, light, and savory saltiness that can titillate the tongue as well as quench the soul, and envelope you in an electromagnetic field of peace that surpasses all understanding! When you allow the Prince of Peace to come into your heart, set up shop, and begin the process of demolition, you are set on a protocol of rehabilitaton that will not only benefit you in this physical reality, but set you up for success straight into the spiritual one as well!
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 1:2 -- We're meant to be advancing towards success in all areas of our exsitence. We're designed to live our lives operating at full maturity to the capabilities that have been endowed to each and everyone of us by G_d.
Thus, it's essential that as each of us journey through our divine plan of faith towards destined Shalom that we realize that real transformation begins with the Spirit and not the physical. The world system is designed to keep us occupied, focused, and worried about our physical states of being primarly when in fact the Word of G_d teaches the opposite. There are many benefits in maintaining our physical health, but these benefits pale in comparison to a soul in harmony with the natural order of things. So, it's the Great Physician's prescription that we humble and avail ourselves to His instrucitons in order for us to reap the reward of total peace in a world of chaos!
May the Grace of Christ be with you always!
Seven Steps of Salvation
Salvation is simple. And the process of developing and cultivating a relationship with Christ is the foundation of experincing and living a life of real inner peace. The above video I thought was a pretty good, short, and smiple break down of salvation, what it means to be saved, and how to begin your spiritual transformation journey. I take issue with number six as far as a comment about how one knows whether they have His Spirit or not, but other then that this short video does a great job of providing a nice overview.
