Dear Bros in Christ,

Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.
Brothers in Christ, this weekly encouragement is sent and meant to be an encouragement to all and to build up and edify in the Lord Jesus Christ. Oikodome means "Builder". The Lord has put this on my heart to send out
a monthly Iron Man Oikodome {oy-kod-om-ay'} to build up and encourage the men who love and follow Jesus Christ in their walk with Him.
Hebrews 3:13 "But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness."
PRAYER REQUESTS: If you have any prayer requests please send them and I will send them out to the bros for prayer, if privacy is needed I will send in a discreet way.


“Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For You
are my praise.” [Jeremiah 17:14 NKJV]


Bros Jeremiah knows that the Lord can and will do all to heal and save him and really all who
call on His Name. Jeremiah acknowledges what the Lord just said to him in previous verses,
when the Lord told him not to trust in man, in fact the Lord said “Cursed is the man who
trust in man and makes his flesh his strength…,” The Lord went on to say “Blessed is the man
who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is in the Lord.” Now after the Lord speaks Jeremiah
says “Heal me, O Lord and I shall be healed; save me and I shall be saved, For You are my

Most times to our detriment our biggest enemy, our worst foe that we battle is self, meaning
our flesh. When we ask God to heal and save and come in, also to circumcise our heart that
we may live. It’s our flesh that usually always stands in the way; to cut away the flesh and
those sins that keep us plagued with separation from our Savior. Yes sometimes we wallow
and linger in our sinful flesh. We keep trying to win this battle on our own, but bros the battle
belongs to the Lord. Give your sins, your flesh to the Lord, lay it on the altar, the Lord has
never ever lost a battle yet and never will. He did indeed have victory over sin and death! But I
guarantee that you will lose the battle to self if and when you battle in the flesh. Our battles
are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. Jeremiah clearly knows this
and asks the Lord to heal him and he shall be healed and save him and he shall be saved.
Very simple, direct and real, ask the Lord to heal us from ourselves and save us from
ourselves. Let’s make this personal; Lord heal me of myself, save me of myself, help me realize
You are my praise. The Lord hears our cries, He hears our prayers, He knows us intimately,
He desires to heal you and save you, let Him do so today. You want to live, give up the flesh;
let the Lord do surgery on your heart today. “And the LORD your God will circumcise your
heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the LORD your God with all your heart and
with all your soul, that you may live.” Deuteronomy 30:6 God always seems to go beyond
whatever we can ask or imagine, He always knows exactly what is best for us.

Jeremiah gives us a great witness and testimony in a simple way because he knows the Lord
is able and hears us. “Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved,
For You are my praise.”

He [is] your praise, and He [is] your God, who has done for you these great and awesome
things which your eyes have seen. Deuteronomy 10:21
