He Sent His Word and Healed
God has already sent a healing Word. It is not just for our body, it is also for our spirit. We are spirits. God is a Spirit. When we read in Genesis that He made humans in His image, it included our spirits. God is our ultimate healer.
Some people ask, “If God sent His Word and healed them, why are we not seeing more manifestations of that complete healing?” I also humbly asked this question of God. His response was quick. He said, “Because of unbelief.” Throughout humanity’s time on earth, it’s safe to say that the Word of healing has been here. The first mention of healing is found in Genesis 20:17. We see this through the millennia. He sent His Word and healing the wombs of Sarah, Rebecca, and Hannah; we see him healing the waters at Marah (Gen. 15); we see in 2 Chronicles 7:14 that God will heal the land of His people. The Word for healing is Rapha, which means wholeness, complete restoration. The Word heals and makes whole those who believe. Healing is part of our covenant. How is the Word manifested to us? By our uncompromised faith and belief in Him. By faith we can see ourselves made whole, knowing that the storm won’t always last. When Paul said, fight the good fight of faith, it didn’t mean we are fighting to get faith, rather we are fighting to prevent fear from watering down our faith. Fear, doubt, and unbelief waters down our faith. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on April 19, 2020.
Key Scripture Psalm 107:20 NKJV
He sent His word and healed them,
And delivered them from their destructions.

Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
