IF SICKNESS AND DISEASE ARE NOT GOD’S WILL, THEN WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?
The root of sickness came from sin – disobedience by Adam and Eve – BUT that does not mean that people who are sick are IN SIN.
One of the causes of sickness can be SIN!
If a person is actively in a sin, then sickness can come upon a person. If a person is not a son or daughter of God then the devil has the right to come on them at any time he desires. As a child of God, because of the covenant of Jesus, sickness has no RIGHT to be on us.
If a Christian is active in a sin, living in disobedience, then they have stepped out from underneath the protection of God, and then sickness has a right to come upon them. Thank God that if we REPENT we step back in line with our covenant rights and can take authority over sickness and disease.
Where is sin and sickness coupled in the Word? John 5:12-14, Then they asked him, “Who is the Man who said to you, ‘Take up your bed and walk’?” 13 But the one who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, a multitude being in that place. 14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, “See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.” NKJV
Another cause is NOT TAKING CARE OF OUR BODIES, OVEREATING, ABUSE.
I Cor. 3:16-17, Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. NKJV
Our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. We need to be good stewards of our bodies.
1. Eating correctly – if you heart blows up because you eat 25 hamburgers a day, it was not the devil….lol!
2. If you are smoking, doing drugs, and you get cancer, or go out of your mind, it was not demonically caused.
3. If you are out of shape (that can be skinny or heavy) and get sickness or disease then you have a part in that bondage.
We as Christians need to eat correctly, exercise, and break off those bondages that can cause illness to be part of our lives.
Even if you or I have caused a sickness or disease, Jesus will heal us and set us FREE as we repent and turn back to His principles!!
John 8:36, So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.
