Does God Make People Sick?

 

Baby with cancer.

Baby with cancer.

For the one who says, “God put this (sickness, disease, situation, etc) on me and is keeping it on me.”

God does not sit in heaven making arbitrary decisions on who to bless and who not to bless. He leaves that up to man.

On His side, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing it is possible to have for us to manifest with Him into the earth (Eph 1).

Eph 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”

We are told in James 1 to never accuse God as the source for our problems of any kind.

James 1:13 “Let no man [or woman] say when he [or she] is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.”

But as Paul is the example, while God has given us every spiritual blessing in heavenly places, someone needs to believe God to bring them to earth. Therefore in that same letter to the Ephesians, Paul prays two powerful prayers specifically aimed at bringing those spiritual blessings to earth.

And Jesus included the same thing in the “Our Father,” when He told us to pray, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matt 6:8-15)

So how could Jesus heal all those people in the Bible where He spent so much time healing them by bringing heaven to earth for them if God put sickness on them? Jesus is the exact representation of God so we could get and keep a right picture of the love of God.

God is never the problem. God has left the manifestation of Himself into the earth in the hands of man. Jesus came to show us what it looks like when it is done right.

Luke 18 tells us to keep in prayer night and day until we get the answer. Jesus even wondered if when He returns will He find people still praying for God’s will to be done on the earth like He said in the Our Father. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

No persistent, reverent and effective prayer means God’s will is not done, even though God wants it done.

I recognize your disappointment and frustration in delayed answer. We are destroyed, and your (problems or sickness) remain, by a lack of knowledge of God’s ways properly applied, not by a lack of the will of God. (Hosea 4:6)

I may want to build a jet airplane, but if I do not organize the creation of God properly, then whatever I do will not fly. Prayer battles are the same. It is not just passion but passion in truth and grace that makes the difference. Sincerity without truth does not produce anything of God on the earth.

“Anything between you and a promise of God is a devil either resisting you, or in lies of the devil we believe.” The only hindrance on the part of God is people believing God is hindering anything of His will. Our battle is not against people or God, but the devil and his lies.

Overcome the resisting devil with aiteo commands, lies with God’s Word of Truth, imputed Righteousness and Grace, and stay in thanksgiving, praise and joy until you know you have the answer (Phil 4:4-9).

God’s bold declaration on healing of any kind is in Isaiah 53 and the resurrection of Jesus unto His glorification of being seated at the right hand of the Father.

In Isaiah 53 we are told Jesus became our sin, sickness, defeat, pains, sorrows and failure, bore them fully, and satisfied and paid to completion the price for them, and was fully healed of them to the level of God. Jesus got that job done. When Jesus went to hell, He took us with Him. He did not need to go for Himself; He did it for us, to the level of the satisfaction of Father God.

When God raised Jesus from the dead that could only happen as Jesus was healed of every sin and the curse of the sin, which includes everything and anything that is not like heaven on earth, including your (problems or sickness) (Rom 4:25).

When God raised Jesus from the dead, every sin and curse of sin for all mankind – past, present and future – was healed by those stripes at the whipping post for the physical aspects, and in that resurrection for the soul and spiritual aspects.

God tells us in Rom 4:25 that Jesus could not have been raised from the dead until both He and you and all mankind were justified by God in Jesus. If that job had not been done, Jesus could not have been raised as He became all that sinful man was and is, and thus would have to still be in Hell if Father God had not seen that Jesus made the full, total and complete payment for all mankind.

Jesus got His job done and that included your and my healing of everything that is not just like Jesus forever. Thus there is no legal ground since that day 2000 years ago for the devil to inflict the law of sin and death on anyone ever.

The devil enforcing the law of sin and death does not make it legal.

Our job is to destroy the works of the devil, including your (problems or sickness). We do not deny that problem exists; we deny its right to remain in the name of Jesus. We are destroyed by a lack of how to properly apply this knowledge, not by the will of God in delay.

Peter explained this when he and John healed a man crippled from birth at the Gate Beautiful.

Acts 3:11 “And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering. 12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? 13 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go. 14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; 5 and killed the Prince of zoe/life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses. 16 And his name (Jesus’) through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.”

Notice in verse 12 Peter says is was not by his own power or holiness that the man was healed. And in verse 16 Peter states that it was the name of Jesus and faith in that name that did the miracle. This has never changed.

So how do you build this kind of effective faith in yourself or others right now?

Now you know why we wrote the Power Trilogy, so we could be more effectively about our Father’s business as Jesus was and still is.

I know a woman who had the top half of her body burned in fire. Even her fingernails melted. All of her skin, including her face and hair, was horribly disfigured. It took a while and she never stopped doing those faith actions of Phil 4:4-9. Then one day the dead skin fell off and now she looks as young as her daughters. Often her husband is asked which daughter is that when they see her. Through the pain and suffering, and torment she held onto the truth that by Jesus’ stripes she was healed.

Faint not. And do not join the devil by agreeing this is God holding the blessing back.

Jesus showed what a right thinking human could do concerning healing and blessing of God. If you are not seeing the results Jesus got, then work to think more like Jesus. The answer is in knowing Jesus to effective renewing of the mind, and not in finding fault with God.

There are no wrong answers here, only seek more of Jesus who already paid for every failure we ever made, are now making, or will make. Since He was healed of it, so are you.

It will be shameful for you to show up on the Day of Judgment and see that every hardness of heart was already healed and waiting for you to do the right labour to get that hardness of heart healing already done in Jesus.

A Bible not devoured is like bags of seed stored away. The potential of God into the Earth is there, but never a harvest is made. Jesus is the Seed. The only soil that matters is your heart.

Keep Working the Word so God can Work!

God Bless You and Yours in the Name of Jesus to be more Noble in Him (Acts 17:11-12)

  1. Patrick Freeman

    Thanks Donald for your message. Often I hear, within many churches I have visited, the “tradition of men” suggesting God is the author of sickness. It saddens me too that so many think God has brought sickness into their life. If people believe it is God’s will they are sick then they should pray for more sickness. If one truly believes sickness is from God then they are actually praying against His will when they are asking to be healed…logically speaking. It is the “traditions of men” that make the word of God of in-effect.
    This tradition essentially places a wet-blanket on people’s faith. If you believe sickness is from God then how are you ever going to have the faith to believe in healing. If the lady which had the bleeding problem would have believed it was God’s will that she had this disease then she would have never stepped out of her tent in faith to seek this Jesus man who could heal her. So many church goers have the attitude you described above and unfortunately will never be healed. God…Jesus himself experienced this same attitude in His own home town. He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them (Mark 6:5). The King of miracles could not heal because of their lack of faith. This tells me receiving the best from God’s purchase is participating by believing. How do you believe? Romans 10:17…faith comes by hearing the message. Read the word of God…it increases your faith.
    Thanks again brother…your message has been an encouragement to me.

    P

    • Hi Patrick, thank you for your comment. And I agree with your logic that God does not make people sick and if He did, the response of believers in God should be vastly different than what we see in the world.

      Concerning few miracles in Nazareth, the Scripture does say Jesus did do miracles there, just not many because few came to Him. Those who did come to Jesus, He healed. Those who did not present themselves for healing, obviously did not get healed. The lack of faith was in not coming to Jesus for healing.

      Nowhere does it say that Jesus attempted to minister and could not get them healed. In fact, it makes the statement that those who did come, did get healed.

      Mark 6:5 “And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. 6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.”

      Verse 5 is very clear that those who He did lay hands on, got healed. Since those who did come, did get healed, it appears to me the issue is not that Jesus could not heal those who came to Him, but that they would not come to Him.

      In general, the only faith Jesus required was that someone make Him aware of a need, or He happened upon a need, such as the dead boy in Nain, Luke 7:11. And in that case, as in the raising of Lazarus, no one appeared to have faith except Jesus. In roughly half the miracles, Jesus had the faith, and in roughly half the miracles reported in the gospels, Jesus noted someone else’s faith. The only case mentioned where Jesus had no faith, in the healing of the woman with the issue of blood, Jesus was not aware of the need, and simply was the contact point for the woman in her own faith toward God.

      Someone has to have faith, and faith on at least two levels. First, faith to bring the issue to Jesus, and second, faith that through God one can be healed. And in several cases, a third party had the faith to bring the issue to Jesus, such as the Centurion for his servant, and the Gentile woman for her daughter.

      I do agree that if there is no healing, the fault lies with the minister, not the person who wants healing. God is never our problem; we are. Which I believe is why we are told to keep our minds renewed against the constant pressure of the world system, Rom 12:1-3, into the whole truth of the gospel.

      And if you do keep your mind renewed in the Gospel, then this will be the result:

      Mark 16:15 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be sozo/saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

      17 And these signs shall follow them that believe [the gospel Jesus commanded them to preach]; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

      19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 20 And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word [of grace] with signs following. Amen.”

      Of course, if you are not preaching the true gospel of Jesus Christ, then these above results will not necessarily follow. At least that is what Jesus said, and I think He is more of an authority on this than me or anyone else.

  2. I have been seeking answers for ten years. Medicine, surgery, more medicine, vitamins. I have been chronically ill for ten years and have never smoked, am not a drinker and don’t do crazy things. I have seen people healed. I do not understand your view. I’m sorry, I just don’t. You make it sound like its somehow my lack of faith that is keeping me sick. I really used to pray and believe but I get why people stop when their lives are wrecked. I don’t know who or what God is but if he is all powerful, he could at least send me to the right doctors. Maybe he isn’t as nice as christians say. Because if merely having doubts and questions earns you pain, then what kind of god are you talking to? ?? I try to pray but in reality, I would like to punch him in the face. He gets to live on his cloud and has no idea what it is like to be miserable, sick, exhausted all the time and all alone!!! I doubt I will go to heaven but if I do, I would love some true answers. Sorry if this makes you mad but it is just how I feel right now. As sick and sad and alone as can be. I can’t love something that doesn’t love me back. My deepest sympathy goes out to other chronically ill people. I know you feel alone and if there is no God, I hope you know I feel bad for you in his absence. But I wish recovery for those reading this. I hope you get well. I feel like earth is hell, and we’re stuck in it. If you feel this too, my heart is with you.

    • I am very sorry that your life has been so miserable and you feel so alone. I can assure you that God has never left you, feels your pain, knows your suffering and is far more frustrated than you are. There are answers and healing from God for you, but some things in you have to change first.

      1) If you are looking for truth, then that means you have been believing lies. And that means something in your world view has to change, and all people resist change, even if it is good for them. And even if they want change. So be ready to be uncomfortable for awhile.

      2) Please do not shoot the messenger just because you do not like or agree with the message. Truth does not care if you agree or not, it just remains truth. Modern science is an organized search for truth so we can learn to use it. The truth does not change, only our understanding of truth changes.

      3) Personal change requires work. There are three ways such change can happen: First is by your active participation. Second is by osmosis from your environment. Third is by a forced environment such as going to jail. The first method is the fastest and most effective, but also requires the most work, and still takes lots of time. The other two methods work much slower and your misery lasts much, much longer. The second and third methods may or may not work at all depending on your attitude.

      4) God hates your need, but can only respond to faith. That is the way the Universe is organized. So until you get some faith working, He is even more frustrated than you are because He has a lot more invested in your best life possible. So your choices with God are:

      a. You develop your faith in God to get and stay free
      b. You find someone else with faith in God to get you free
      c. Recognize that someone else can get you healed by God, but they cannot keep you healed. The devil will come back to attack you again. Until you develop your own godly faith, your life will be a series of painful ups and downs.

      I also believe God has answered your cry for help by sending you here. We are not medical doctors and do not pretend to be, but we get results from God that good doctors wish for. We do not charge anything except perhaps time, how you move your mouth, and if you want, to buy some of our faith tools.

      This whole blog site is full of answers for you. They are already organized and free. So is the material on our main website at http://www.CovenantPeaceMinistries.com

      For starters I suggest you read this blog posting again and this reply, and then let’s chat some more. If you do not want this conversation to be public, then please use the Contact Us page on the main website.

  3. Also…I don’t think praying to be healed is the same as blaming God for illness.

  4. I didn’t mean to shoot the messenger. Not at all. In fact I have friends of all backgrounds who tell me things and I listen very carefully and respectfully. I am very open minded but I still do have the right to disagree with someone. I usually just keep it to myself. My family is very christian but different denominations. Every one who counsels me has a different idea. I believe in Jesus as my savior but I’m very confused because everyone I talk to gives me a different story about how God works. Maybe you could suggest some basic reading material that won’t scare or overwhelm me? I don’t have the knowledge to interpret the ideas my family offers. I know they mean well but…I just need to understand. Fyi, half are catholic, half protestant and the rest just fly by the seat of their pants. I get so many complicated responses when they speak with me.

    • Hi Amy, well said; your family is similar to mine.

      I do not feel you have shot at me yet.

      Since I am an author and have written on these topics, I and others recommend my books. The series we call the Power Trilogy is three books. These are the books I wish I had had when I first started in the Lord; it would have saved a lot of time and heartache.

      I suggest you go to our bookstore at the top of this blog page, and see if any interest you. I wrote them because I could find none that addressed the issues as directly and as simply as I needed to help others. People have gotten healed with all three of them, but of course “Battle Prayer for Divine Healing – Field Manual 2” is specific for getting you healed in Jesus.

      They all are available at Amazon or from us. Right now Amazon ships cheaper than we can.

      And in the meantime you can look through the other free resources we have both in the other blog postings and at the main website.

      As a general rule, advice tends to get more complicated the less you know about the topic. Is anyone in your family experienced in divine healing in the name of Jesus on a regular basis? I suspect not as they would have already gotten you healed in the name of Jesus.

      The good news is that effective faith can be learned, but while there are lots of words, few demonstrate results.

  5. Very interesting that you asked if they tried spiritual healing. Well, my aunt prays for me in her way. Mom prays also but in a more catholic way. And one man, a methodist minister, scared me to death because he tried to perform some kind of exorcism. My mom got very angry because we dont invite those strange things into our lives. I only went to him for advice, and it turned into something very dark and frightening. I have medical issues and I do not believe an exorcism was appropriate for a young woman who is easily influenced by people who know more than me. I never went back to him, obviously. But no, I have not heard of anyone in my family being healed by Jesus specifically. I will look at the material you suggest, I just don’t want to be frightened by talk about demons attacking me. On a side note, my doctor today gave me bad news. He does not think I can really be helped and feels terrible he hasnt been successful. I have been begging God for a break, just some relief. I also have read the bible and some c.s lewis. I can only hope that God heals me because my doctor can’t. I feel bad for my doctor because he really has tried. I may have to apply for disability, but more than anything the the whole world I want to feel good and return to work. By the way, I’m not lazy at all. I tried so hard to keep my last job but nearly collapsed last year, and it all went from bad to worse. My poor doc has tried everything he knows, and said maybe I need to look elsewhere. Its not his fault. He tried the best he could. I know God must see this. I asked for healing the other day. I asked him to give me not what I deserve, but for mercy and help. Was that right? I know I’m not perfect and was hoping God would decide to helpbeven though I sometimes do the wrong thing. But we all do, right? Sorry this was so long. I’m just a sick, confused girl trying to make sense of things. Thanks.

    • Well I guess I need to duck as you shoot the messenger. But please do not shoot, just listen with an open mind.

      We know the greatest about the devil from Jesus and the New Testament.
      God is indeed a God of peace, and this is the kind of peace God is talking about:

      Acts 10:34 “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 but in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. 36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) 37 that word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”

      So every miracle Jesus did was an act of God’s peace against the devil, or the word of peace in action. In verse 38 it is clear that every healing Jesus did, all of which had biological evidence, was healed by getting the devil off of them. The biology changed when the devil was forced out.

      Here Jesus explains the crippling biology has the devil as its source.

      Luke 13:10 “And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. 11 And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. 12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. 13 And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. 14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day. 15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? 16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?”

      Now I am sure if we had this woman today we would give her an MRI and all kinds of other scans and tests and she would have all the symptoms, the biology and the pain of crippling arthritis. Jesus did not deny she had these symptoms and this pain, but the Master Physician said the real cause, the root, was the devil. The biology was the symptoms of a spiritual condition.

      There are two major life forces in this Universe. Zoe life which comes from God, and anti-zoe or death which comes from separation from God. Separation from God means unity with sin and Satan. That is where the sickness symptoms come from.

      This is like a tree. Cut off the branches and leave the root intact and it will grow again. Kill the root and no more branches, or symptoms.

      I believe modern medicine is God’s gift for the failure of the Christian church to do its job.

      Jesus said it this way: John 20:21 “Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.”

      What Jesus started, we are to finish.

      The good news from God and the news the devil does not want Christians to know is that we have the power and the job of destroying his evil works just like Jesus did.

      Thus our description should be the same as Jesus’: Acts 10:38 “How God anointed [us in] Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: [so we go] about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God [is with us].”

      As I said before, we are expert and getting people healed in the name of Jesus, and teaching others how to go about the job God assigned us.

      One of our students reported that the other night his son fell out of bed and broke or cracked at least one rib. The man ministered zoe life to his son in the name of Jesus and his son was healed. His prayer went something like this.
      “Father, I thank You this is already done. Devil, in the name of Jesus you get off my son. Body you be healed and pain go, now, in the name of Jesus. Life of God, swallow up death and make him whole. Life of God, be and grow in him. It is done, in the name of Jesus. Thank You, Father God in the name of Jesus.”

      I am not sure if he said this more than once, he may have. I do not know how long and how many times he repeated his commands. Could have been five minutes or one hour. But when he was done, the pain was gone and his son went back to sleep and woke up just fine.

      Modern science does the best it can by dealing with symptoms. God shows the root and how to win to freedom in Jesus. The Bible is real.

  6. Also, even though this scares me, I am open minded enough to be instructed about dark things such as devils attacks. I’m just confused by how you know what is from nature and what is supernatural…

    • This may suprise you but we humans are the supreme spiritual transmission terminals or agents of this universe. Both God and the devil eagerly want to work through us.

      Telling if it is the devil is not all that hard: Jesus said it this way:
      John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

      If it is robbing, killing or destroying, it is the devil. If it is not heaven on earth, it is the devil. If is sickness of any kind, it is the devil behind it. If you work on the obviouis first, the more subtle will become easier to deal with.

      And above all the devil does not want you to become proficient in our job of finishing what Jesus started.
      Luke 10:19 Behold, I (Jesus) give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy (Satan); nothing shall by any means hurt you.

      20 “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”

  7. One last thing: there are some very odd things being written about God on certain web sites. One of them said that to get into heaven, you have to perform a very specific percentage of “good acts” to be allowed in. If you fail, you will be sent to a certain “circle” of hell depending on how bad you were. But I thought Jesus died so everyone had an equal chance, and that although good works are nice because they help people, they aren’t your free ticket in. Is that right?

  8. Good works do not get us in to be in God, faith in the work of Jesus does.
    Rom 3:22 “Even the righteousness (rightness and unity) of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

    23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

    24 “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:”

    We can do nothing to deserve healing, and there is no sin or sins we can commit that is greater than the love, grace and mercy of God in Jesus.
    Divine Healing in the name of Jesus is by grace.
    Getting and staying in divine health requires the work of renewing the mind into the truth of the gospel.

  9. On the amount of time spent in ministering zoe life, that really depends on the minister. For example the same minister can pray 30 seconds and get free of a cold, another time may take 16 hours non-stop. In both cases, the one who stayed in the battle till they kicked out the devil, won and got their healing.

    The variables are many, so do not worry so much about the time, but staying in with prayer and Scripture until you win. That is part of the “good works” we are called to as Christians. And this little “secret” is not taught much as many give up before victory. Which is why we wrote the “Battle Prayer for Divine Healing-FM2” to help you stay in the battle until you win.

    If you want to debate the amount of time it may take, there is an expression I learned years ago that seems to fit, “Shut up and play your guitar.” Unless you can do better, not talk better, but do better, get out of the way of those working, no matter how inefficient you may think they are.

    If Jesus spent 3-6 hours a day, 1-4 all nights a week, and often arose early in the morning for Scripture prayer, and Peter, James, Paul and other disciples did the same, why not you? So if you wonder where your answers from God are, now you know.

    If you did not spend the time and “Jesus-effort” before the battle, do not be suprised if you have to spend it in the battle to get victory. Otherwise learn to accept defeat, and blame it on something else.

    A Bible not devoured is like bags of seed stored away. The potential of God into the earth is there, but rarely a harvest is made. Jesus is the Seed. The only soil that matters is your heart.

    The truly difficult thing is the consequences of not managing your thought life.

    Keep Working the Word so God can Work!

  10. I read all that you wrote. I didn’t shoot at you. You keep saying that. Just because I have an opinion with which you disagree doesn’t make me a shooter. I don’t believe you. Straight up. Sickness is not personally issued by a devil. So I will share something someone once told me. If someone tells you something based on fear, that is not from God. True, the devil doesn’t want what is best for me but doctors are trying to be Gods hands on an imperfect earth. Nowhere in the NT does our Lord say, don’t go to doctors and push science aside. And if you were truly a sincere messenger of God, you would be able to hear a strangers opinion without feeling attacked. I’m going to seek my answers elsewhere. But if you feel you’re right, then go with what works inyour life. I don’t think you’re the right one for me. Too insecure. Goodbye, God bless.

    • Yup, you shot me dead. :(
      I have no intention of being the “one” for you, that is Jesus’ job, not mine.

      But rest assured that God did not give you your sickness, and He desires more than the fires of the sun to see you healed. But if you do not follow His way of doing things, then there is no guarantee in the results. God is the author and creator of science.

      So my request to not shoot the messenger went unheeded. And even worse you said you did not shoot me! But your fingerprints are all over the gun and there are powder burns on your hand.

      Or is this a case of, “I decree, ignore the facts, and therefore it is?”

      And I never said to not go to doctors or medicine or science. That is your choice as always. I do know of at least one doctor, and have heard of many more, who gave up secular medicine to work divine healing miracles in the name of Jesus. They got tired of seeing the suffering of those they could not cure.

      And if you read everything I wrote, then you would know I have been a material world scientist for many years. It is still my day job, but I gave it up for things that work better, which is the essence of true science.

      If Jesus spent 3-6 hours a day, 1-4 all nights a week, and often arose early in the morning for Scripture prayer, and Peter, James, Paul and other disciples did the same, and all taught their disciples to do the same, why not you? So if you wonder where your answers from God are, now you know.

      If you did not spend the time and “Jesus-effort” before the battle, do not be suprised if you have to spend it in the battle to get victory. Otherwise learn to accept defeat, and blame it on something else.

      A Bible not devoured is like bags of seed stored away. The potential of God into the earth is there, but rarely a harvest is made. Jesus is the Seed. The only soil that matters is your heart.

      The truly difficult thing is the consequences of not managing your thought life.

      Keep Working the Word so God can Work!

      God Bless You and Yours in the Name of Jesus to be more Noble in Him (Acts 17:11-12)

      Jesus is Lord of Heaven and Earth!

  11. Hi Amy,

    I read all of your comments, am a Christian by birth and never really experienced a miracle until recently. I had been diagnosed with asthma and my attacks were getting more severe, of course it started being mild and I convinced myself it was ok to have a little illness, after all doctors are Christians too.
    When the attack became more frequent, I would just tell myself that the triggers just seemed to be everywhere cos I recently relocated to another address. Sometimes, the devil will remind me of people who died of asthma attacks and tell me it could happen to me as well. Intact there was a day I was almost running out of breath, had no inhaler nearby and was home alone with my toddler. I cried to God to keep death from me and I promised to always have my inhaler at hand.
    That prayer was answered but the lie of the devil remained and I decided I had to deal with it.
    I decided to build up my faith by studying the miracles in the bible, received my healing on the 3rd January by the Grace of God.
    My point is, you need to first believe that indeed Christ became a Curse( for it is written cursed is he that hangeth on a tree) that we might be free. Perharps in the old testament, There were accounts of God inflicting illness on people as a result of disobedience to given instructions. But in the new testament, we have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus so every Christian has a right to perfect health.
    You will have to search the scripture yourself however to build your faith, the fact that so many Christians are sick is because we really dont know we have a right to perfect health so we can’t fight the good fight of faith. It’s much easier when you have used your faith for much smaller issues and it works, that way when the Devil brings bigger mountains your faith can withstand much longer because you have personally seen God at work too many times to allow doubt.
    The term Christians here doesn’t just refer to church goers but being filled with the Holy Ghost.
    I really pray that you experience a miracle and recieve perfect restoration of your health.

  12. I think Satan can cause us to be sick and sometimes God himselfe can educate us.

    • I think Jesus expained it more directly. Satan, the thief, only comes to rob, kill and destroy. Acts 10:38 makes it clear that every miracle Jesus did was removing the authority or rulership of the devil, the one who only comes to rob, kill and destroy.

      So when someone uses the name of Jesus to get someone healed, that is the devil leaving. We have yet to see a human disorder that the name of Jesus cannot heal. So by inference, then every human disorder has a demon or evil spirit of Satan at its root. Physical medicine deals with the symptoms. The name of Jesus and faith in that name deals with the spiritual condition and produces physical healing and health.

      And Jesus did it, not by His own power, for He gave up His diety to walk only as a man. So Jesus did His miracles the same way we are to do them, by the power of Holy Spirit. The same Holy Spirit that we are given when we get born again and released it in what is called the baptism of Holy Spirit.

      God is always educating us on who we are in Jesus and how to walk so Jesus can manifest through us. On the Day of Judgment it is not God, Jesus or Holy Spirit who will be on trial for failure to work in us both to will and to do of God’s good pleasure. God is always talking. The Bible is always there to hear Him speak. If there is a communication breakdown, it is not on God’s side.

      What I have discovered is that when I get the devil off of people for any form of hell on earth, inlcuding sickness, the miracle power of God restores them to normal function, or gets them healed. I can get them healed, but I cannot keep them healed. For that you need a renewed mind into the gospel of “Christ in us the hope of glory.”

      The world system of natrural biological cause and effect is the symptom of the spiritual condition of Satan causing sickness by his corrupt world system. Remove the demon or evil spirit causing the sickness and all the biology disapears and goes back to God’s normal. Jesus gave us authority, power and the resources of heaven over all the works of the devil (Luke 10:19-20). It is our job as Christians. As in Jesus we are removed from the law of sin and death, even forceful biology will not make us sick. That is how we can walk in divine health in the midst of contageous diseases and plauges.
