In our last Newsletter we introduced Dr. Henry Wright’s book, Exposing the Spiritual Roots of Disease.  We have been through the book twice now and we both have experienced a new, and very deep level of healing in many areas as a result.  The following is a sampling of things that hit our spirits as we read and we wanted to share this book review with you to once again highly encourage you to get this book.  If you are serious about your personal healing journey and you desire to help others in theirs, then read on!

The root cause of 80% of disease is spiritual and is a result of separation on three levels.  1)  Separation from God – from His Person, His love, and His Word.  2) Separation from yourself.  3)  Separation from others.
The beginning of your healing begins with restoration with God, yourself and others.
Separation brings disease.  Mankind, including Christians, is diseased first of all because we are separated from God, His Word and His love.  To be free and healed you must believe God’s Word, that He truly loves you.
Regarding separation from ourselves, over the last 30 years I (Dr. Wright) have seen thousands of people who have battled intensely with self-hatred self-loathing, self- bitterness and guilt.  These are deep rooted lies from the enemy that carry with them many disorders, especially autoimmune diseases.  If this is your struggle, you must learn to accept yourself in your relationship with God and love yourself as God sees you, not embracing the deception of self-hatred and guilt.  God loves you!  He declares it in His Word.  Do not deny the truth of His love for you by believing the lies of the enemy.
Separation from others opens the door wide to spiritually rooted disease.  Unforgiveness and bitterness can become a root deep inside you that defiles those around you and makes your body very susceptible to disease.  When we embrace the enemy’s lies we end up suffering at his hands.
As you will learn throughout Exposing the Spiritual Roots of Disease, the key roots of disease are elements of satan’s kingdom of darkness:  bitterness, accusation, envy and jealousy, fear, anxiety and stress, anger and hostility, rejection, shame, unloving spirits, self-hate, occultism and addictions.
Repentance and sanctification play important roles in disease prevention or becoming free from disease.  We are so busy chasing symptoms, we’re so busy chasing disease profiles that we don’t even take into account why we got sick to begin with.  Often times, we need to deal with sin and spiritual issues that are affecting our hearts before our healing can occur.
Now it’s important that you don’t react to God’s truth about sin in your life by condemning yourself.  We are convicted of our sins by the Holy Spirit in order to bring repentance and freedom, not condemnation.  The Holy Spirit’s conviction helps us to recognize our sin so that we can repent of it and walk in the freedom of Jesus Christ.  This is all the process of our sanctification – of being changed as we grow in Him.
Our biggest problem is that people want to be healed without getting rid of the sins that are at the root of the disease.  Forgiveness has to come first.  Don’t hold on to the wrongs committed by others.  Be a doer of the Word.  Be a forgiver.
The spiritual roots of disease are hidden by an enemy who is a deceiver.  He wants us to believe that disease is an inevitable part of life.  But for the Christian, it does not have to be.  God’s promises to us are healing and wholeness.  The choice is yours.  Who do you want to be your master?
Autoimmune Diseases

Most Autoimmune Diseases are the result of an unloving spirit that produces feelings of not being loved and not feeling accepted.  This leads to self-rejection, self-hatred and self-bitterness coupled with guilt.  In fact it could be said that Autoimmune Diseases are primarily self-hatred disease with a fear, anxiety and stress rider attached to them.  This self-rejection leads to the power of sin that will not let you accept God’s righteousness in you.
There are approximately one hundred Autoimmune Diseases or Disorders.  Some of them are:
Type 1 Diabetes
Graves’ Disease
Crohn’s Disease
Rheumatoid Arthritis

Exposing the Spiritual Roots of Disease
by Dr. Henry Wright
Be In Health Ministries, Thomaston, GA.

This is only a minor list of things Dr. Wright covers in his writing.  In each category he identifies the problem, reveals the spiritual root and then demonstrates how to pray for freedom.
If you have found yourself suffering from any of the things we’ve listed here and you are ready to actively move forward in your healing journey, then a copy of this book will catapult you forward.
In just a week our lives have been tremendously changed and we are enjoying a new level of freedom from things we’d never recognized as sin before in our lives.  We’ve taken Dr. Wrights suggestion and where we have recognized our sins and the need to ask for forgiveness from others, we have done that. The results are amazing!
We’ve shared with just a hand full of people around us and they, too, are experiencing new found freedom.  We want to see that happen for you as well.  Many of you who have previously experienced Prayer Ministry here at PITFH are in the pages of this book!  We found you as we read and stopped to pray for you individually.  We have found family members in these pages.  Oh how our hearts desire to see you all set free.
We pray now that as you watch our lives impacted by the new revelations we have received, that you will be encouraged to take the step of faith and see what Father has for you!

Mega blessings in the Father’s love,
Roger and Gerri
