ALWAYS EATING AT ODD TIMES WILL CAUSE DEPOSITION OF FAT IN THE WRONG PLACES
– Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche on “CAUSES OF ILL HEALTH” Midweek Power Communion Service Glory Dome, Abuja.
I welcome everyone here this evening in the precious name of Jesus. I see the Lord do so much in our midst. The Commanding the Day midnight prayer hour session is producing so much results.
Testimonies rushing at the frequency of fire and we believe that something is happening around the earth. From everywhere, it’s coming – from China, America – everywhere.
Psalm 119:67. I’m going to be preaching on something today that I am sure you may not have heard or maybe heard the way I’m going to preach it today before. Psalm 119:67.
The Lord bless His Word in Jesus’ name. I am speaking very quickly on “CAUSES OF ILL HEALTH“.
Our objective tonight is to understand the origins of disease, understanding the factors that contribute to ill health and understanding how to handle them.
There are two things I want to say by way of introduction.
1. God’s purpose for His children is to prosper and be in health. 3 John 1:2.
2. There’s a connection between light and health, knowledge and freedom. John 8:32. It is clear that the more enlightened people, especially in the developed world, the more knowledge about diseases they have, the easier it is for them.
We also have a lot of deplorable health conditions in places of high illiteracy, they are also filled with high mortality.
So, it is important for us to have light and it is important to note that not every sickness is healable by prayer. Some are healable only by knowledge and information.
For example, the person who got diabetes because of a certain kind of way of living. There’s no amount of prayer that you pray for that person until that behaviour changes.
So, there are sicknesses that are not healable by prayer, they are only healable by knowledge and by a change, somehow.
This evening, I am going to be looking at 5 causes or origins of ill health and diseases.
This is where you can say that maybe you’re dealing with a physiological, pathological or chemical issue. Here’s it, when I say biological, I mean, it is easily traceable to a bacteria like Mycobacteria tuberculi which is responsible for tuberculosis or the syphilitic virus, a bacteria, a virus, a parasite like the malaria parasite.
You can trace it to something like this. Or maybe it’s pathological where you can’t say that there’s a virus or a bacteria but the organ is diseased like a kidney, lung, liver disease or something that is not tied to an infectious agent.
That is, we can go to the laboratory and say, “okay, this is the reason for this”, it’s biological.
This is food related issues that affect health. Here, we can be talking of undernutrition in which case somebody is not eating enough or adequately as we have in Africa.
So, he’s having undernutrition with protein-energy malnutrition, kwashiorkor, marasmus. This can be undernutrition or overnutrition, where somebody is eating too much. Like they say in America, most Americans, they dig their grave with their teeth. I remember going to Tennessee for a program of Morris Cerrulo and the food they were serving, there was a jar of coke.
It wasn’t sold in bottles, you just go with a big cup and serve as much as you want to drink, finish drinking it, you serve again. The cost was flat, if you want to drink it 10 times, nobody will charge you. The cup is as big as your arm like this, fill it up, drink and go again, as many times as you want. Those who like to eat will just finish themselves.
That was why one man told me after our New York meeting when we had 7 hours in God’s presence that became 8 hours in New York City, he said, “keeping Americans for 8 hours without eating is equivalent to the miracle of raising the dead”.
An American whiteman, that is what he said, Jonathan Shuttlesworth. So, there are people whose health problem is nutritional. Eating a lot of sugary things, diabetes is inevitable and like Papa Oyedepo said many years ago, he said there are people are not having diabetes, they are having ‘diacokekies’, too much coke or I can say, ‘diasugaries’.
Too much of salt for example will assist hypertension, too much of fried food for example will increase cholesterol and give you heart diseases.
There are people who will not eat anything except it is extremely fried and they eat it at odd times. Too much of odd time eating for example will cause deposition of fat in the wrong places.
So, you’re both in a Church school, nutritional school and also a medical school. So, some of these things are not things that anybody can pray for you about.
For example, I trained in Plateau State, went to Jos University Medical School, among the children from Birom tribe and some of those tribes, you will never find kwashiorkor. Reason; they eat ‘acha’ and some of these mixtures that is so rich in protein and nutritious and it’s impossible for them to have those kinds of things. Meanwhile, when you go to Teaching Hospitals in most parts of the West, I’m talking of another thing now, you don’t look too far to find peptic ulcer disease because of too much eating of pepper.
These are things that we learnt in school, it was clear. Various regions, there are things that once you go there, you find it very easily. So, this is nutritional.
So, when you look at your life and look how you operate and function. My wife is here, she’s aware, there’s a time of the night that meat can’t enter this mouth.
I mean, I don’t struggle for it, if you like, fry and decorate it, it’s not interesting at all. It’s not that I decided, my body rejects it at that time.
