Derek Prince – Bible Teacher
What I’m going to speak about tonight concerns you personally, because I’m going to speak about the body. And every one of us has one thing in common here tonight, otherwise we wouldn’t be here. Each one of us has a body that brought us here.
And my theme tonight will be: “God’s Plan for Your Body.”
I want to say right at the beginning I thank God for doctors and nurses and hospitals and all who minister to the sick. I’m in no sense a critic, nor am I a competer. We’re all on the same team working towards the same end: the relief of human suffering. But we just have to say this one thing: the power of doctors and nurses is limited. The power of God is unlimited. The things that are impossible with men are possible with God.
So may that encourage you as you listen now to God’s Word. I’m going to give you an outline of what the Bible teaches about our body, because if you can grasp these truths and accept them in faith, it will give you a solid Scriptural basis for receiving health for your body here tonight.
HOW YOUR BODY WAS MADE (GEN. 2:7; PS. 139:13–16)
First of all, the Bible is the only book that tells us how our bodies were made. And so marvelous is the revelation of Scripture that it’s all in one verse. How many scientists could tell all that story in one verse? It’s in Genesis 2:7.
