     This past August, God gave me an unusual prophetic message just before being called up to speak to a hungry group of Believers in Calgary, Canada. The unusual word God gave me for the Saturday afternoon service was "Holistic Health," and I knew He was talking about the Body of Christ. I knew only a little about natural holistic health, so I checked the internet for more detail. Here's one explanation from WebMD:

     "Holistic medicine practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health. A holistic doctor may use all forms of health care, from conventional medication to alternative therapies, to treat a patient."

The Holistic Approach

     Then God spoke to me, "The Church needs to take a holistic approach to the health and healing of My Body on the earth, and I am raising up leaders who will understand and implement these truths and applications to prepare for My great harvest, which will be funded by a great transfer of wealth.

     "I will not allow past and present deceptions and distractions to keep My people from experiencing the total health I wish to bring to them as members of My Body in these days of harvest." (Photo via Unsplash)

     That word was a big "WOW!" to me. What would that look like? The more I meditated on the subject, the more excited I got about it. Looking at the above definition, I was reminded of Paul's teaching in 1 Corinthians 12 about the Body of Christ and how interdependent we all are on one another, and how "when one member suffers, we all suffer" (1 Corinthians 12:26). Thus, I knew God was confirming this prophetic word.

     In natural medicine, we have General Practitioners and we have specialists for every aspect of health. The GPs, as they are called, are the doctors we visit first when we have a health issue. If it's not a simple fix, they refer us to a specialist.

     On the other hand, the holistic doctor will investigate other aspects of our health, such as nutritional deficiencies, lack of sleep or exercise, stress from relationships or careers, psychological issues from our past, environmental factors, guilt or loneliness, etc. He or she will then potentially recommend various lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise and nutritional supplements and/or specialized counseling, etc.

     The problem with the non-holistic approach is that we often are just given medicine to treat specific symptoms without ever discovering the root cause of the condition. The drugs then can cause other long-term health issues because they can affect our chemical balance.

     Taking Paul's illustration of the Body with many members, each of us being one member, let's compare the ministry leader usually called "Pastor" with the General Practitioner. The Specialists could be marriage counselors, inner healing practitioners, deliverance ministries, etc. Thus, if a member of the Body of Christ has a problem, the pastor will try to bring healing to that problem. If it's too deep a problem, he will send him or her to a professional Christian counselor or an inner healing or deliverance specialist.

     The "Holistic Approach," on the other hand, looks at the whole Body; the overall health of the Body, soul and spirit. This is where God is shifting our mode of operation. (Photo via Unsplash)

     In the past, we have had very few "Holistic Healers" in the Body of Christ, but today, God is raising up many strong ministries who are...(continue reading)
