Della caught an "OOPS!" in part 30 that got past me, and it seemed like a good idea to start today by correcting that misstatement. I said, "Jesus fulfilled both parts of the Covenant -- His part as the provider and enforcer, and our part, which required the shedding of blood for the remission (aphiémi: eradication) of all past sins, iniquities, failings, etc., and -- more than that -- the curse that brought about sin, sickness, disease, infirmity and demonic affliction."
This is a strange way to begin today, but let me begin by asking you a question. Why is it that we continue to put up with the physical attacks on our bodies?
A quick note before we get started today: due to increased family activities on Fridays with the encroaching summer, more and more people are finding Friday nights an issue to join us for our Healing Prayer Call.
Dale Petersen and his wife, Merlee, pastored a fellowship in Spokane for a number of years known as Springs of Living Water. Della and I first met them through mutual friends in late 1990 or early 1991.
One quick note before we get started today: For those who have tried the last two weeks to access our Sunday fellowship conference calls, we were offline for a couple of reasons, and this past Sunday, Rich Warren and I were away, leading worship for a men's retreat at Fort Flagler. Our Sunday conference calls will resume this Sunday at or around 12:30 PM PST (3:30 PM EST): (559) 726-1300, Access Code: 308640#.
