3 John 2  Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.  NKJV

Vine’s Dictionary of Greek words defines the soul as "the seat of Intellect": the seat of the sentient element in man, that by which he perceives, reflects, feels, and desires. Basically, the soul is the place that houses our will, our emotions, and our intellect (the thinking, reasoning part of us: The Mind).

The Beloved Disciple is praying for both our soul and our body to prosper as well as all things pertaining to us.  That covers all aspects of our existence.  Our health is dependent upon our soul prospering which is where our thinking, reasoning, and emotions occur.  The statement “mind over matter” is a true statement, especially in the case of health.  To take it a step farther, the appropriate statement should be “spirit over mind over matter”.  Whichever is stronger, spirit or mind, will determine the prosperity of your health.

Having spent nearly 15 years watching and using the EDS (electro-dermal screening) technology, I was able to observe the above in action.  A person’s “constitution” or emotional state could and would impact their body’s electrical system thus preventing them from being tested.  Their emotional state could block the flow from being measured.  You could counteract their state by use of a known homeopathic signal causing them to move toward equilibrium or a zero state.  This is why certain essential oils will impact a person to the point of bringing them peace.

I was also told stories about how forgiveness would impact the expression of cancer in the body.  One particular lady was bitter toward her grandmother and had breast cancer.  Once she finally forgave the grandmother, the cancer began to clear up.  She was fully restored.

Love is the ultimate answer to prosperity… Beloved.  Love is a state of being, not just an action, and its fruit are joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control and forgiveness.

The soul can become strong at the expense of your spirit and you can become wealthy.  However, this will not improve your health and many have died an apparent early death leaving their wealth to others.

The word prosper in the above passage means:

  1. to grant a prosperous and expeditious journey, to lead by a direct and easy way

  2. to grant a successful issue, to cause to prosper

  3. to prosper, be successful

If you really want to prosper in all areas, I am convinced that ascending to the fullness of Love is the pathway to prospering in all areas- spirit, soul, and body.  As you mature in Love, you need less because you don’t pursue worldly things and the specific resources you need for your calling will be attracted to you.  Some will need many resources, others will need less.  We don’t define ourselves by the resources under our command.  As you walk in Love, your hunger is satisfied by foods that fulfill the requirements of the body rather than satisfying the fleshly appetite.  You become sensitive to correcting the past by removing interferences brought into your soul and body.  These interferences would restrict or block the flow in their respective areas.  Forgiveness will remove blockages.

As you remove the barriers to the flow of life, you move to a higher state.  When testing young children with the EDS device, the typical flow of energy was high.  When testing a cancer patient, the typical flow was very low.

With this understanding, let us look at the Words of Our Loving FATHER in Proverbs 4:

20 ​​My son, give attention to my words; ​​Incline your ear to my sayings.

21 ​​Do not let them depart from your eyes; ​​Keep them in the midst of your heart;

22 ​​For they are life to those who find them, ​​And health to all their flesh.

23 ​​Keep your heart with all diligence, ​​For out of it spring the issues of life.

24 ​​Put away from you a deceitful mouth, ​​And put perverse lips far from you.

25 ​​Let your eyes look straight ahead, ​​And your eyelids look right before you.

26 ​​Ponder the path of your feet, ​​And let all your ways be established.

27 ​​Do not turn to the right or the left; ​​Remove your foot from evil.

Prosperity of the spirit will move to the soul and then the body.  Love is the Way.
