Sickness that should not be
Have you every asked why so many saints are dying with diseases?
Growing up in Solomon's Temple in Detroit Michigan under my late Pastor Bishop William Lee Bonner I witnessed a large number of physical transformations in the saints bodies. The church had a capacity to hold over 1 thousand people. I would watch as men and women were filled with the Holy Ghost with speaking in tongues as the spirit of God gave utterance and shot all over the place. Most would come in slim and active. I would see them in prayer meetings, singing in the choir and enjoying church functions and so forth. They were very active.
Then the trials and tribulations begin to happen to them. They worried more and ate more. Some begin to have health problems. Fasting had to be rejected due to health problems. During the earily years of their saved life they would spend countless hours on their knees and now their knees hurt when they pray, so they just sit in the seat and observe everyone else while quietly talking to God.
The reasons why
In the book of Corinthians, during communion, we are told that many saints are sickly, and die before their time because they DISCERN not the Lord's body. You must prove what you eat is acceptable to God.
1Co 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
1Co 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
1Co 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
1Co 11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
