Most of the time in our thinking it seems like we love more than God do. People have very little faith in the goodness of God. Once in my life I was pressured to believe that God is the root cause of all the mess that was happening in my life and my immediate family. How can someone I believe was the cause of my lovely sister’s death. Get my life save, if God truly love me to the extend of giving is only son, why does he killed my only sister. The word God give and God takes bothered me so much. How can God takes the life of my only pretty little sister at twenty seven. But has I began to study the word for myself my understanding began to straightened up. When I came across scripture like james1:16&17. I was then totally convinced that some of the thing that happened to us is from the devil and some from God. Then I really understand what Good things and bad things was
Good and bad
How can some says that he knows what Good and bad is, when he can’t tell the difference between who cause good things and who cause bad things. For Some, only what they can remember in the bible is the story of job. If they dare to open the Bible only the old testament does they read. And they profess they know every thing that is in the Bible. “A innocent child born deformed ” God is blame. “Earthquake that happened in a locality and destroy lives and property” they called it the will of God. A miracle healing that happened to someone. They said “can’t you see, he has gone to the marine kingdom to subscribe for power” God for all days is been blame for evil. And Good is been accredited to the devil. How can such be true. No God is the healer. The doer of all good things.
“Do not be misled, my beloved brethren, [every good gift and every perfect [free, large, full] gift is from above and come down from the father of all, [that give] light, [in the shinning of] whom there is no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by his turning [as in an eclipse] James 1:16-17.
This great apostle here through the holy spirit is saying try to know the difference Good and bad, how can God be the cause of all this mess, no father will take it kindly with the man that get his child to be born crippled. I myself Godfrey won’t permit a innocent child to be born deformed talk less of a perfect God. No, God is the good God, Satan is bad. Don’t blame God for the work of his enemy.
He want to heal you
scriptures upon scriptures reveal the nature of God to us, it also reveal the nature of God toward sin, sickness and disease, Gods nature as not change through the ages. Neither has is attitude change toward sin, sickness and disease.
In the old testament he came out has Israel healer “he said I am the lord that healeth thee” you need to know and understand divine healing to live in health, in fact the only one thing you need to understand is that its Gods will to heal you because healing is in the redemption.
Delivered from Satan authority
“In whom [in Christ] we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness [remission] of sins. (Collosian1:13:14)
Thank God we’ve been translated through is blood, from the kingdom of darkness, now look at the above verse very well, “even the remission of sins”? Owk. Now, let me ask? Who did you think as the author of sin?God or Devil? Devil right, who then did you think is the author of sickness? (God, right)No God can’t be author of sickness
“How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the [holy]spirit and and with strength and ability and power; how he went About doing good and in particular, healing all who were harassed and oppressed by (the power of the devil, for God was with him”arts10:38
Satan was the one that caused the sickness and Jesus went about healing them, “through one man treespass[lapse, offense] death reigned through the one…….” (Roman5:17) that was how through one man sickness came,(the man Adam)
the Bible says in the mouth of two or three witness every word word may be established all the above scriptures from Matthew Isaiah, and 1peter all agree that Jesus bore our sickness and carries our disease.
- Isaiah53:4-5 “(4)surely he [Jesus hath borne our griefs [sicknesses] and carried our pain sorrows[diseases] yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
- But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our sins, the chastisements needed for our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
this passage of scripture is taken from the king James version, a good reference Bible will have a marginal note by the words “give” and “sorrows” (v.4) tell you that Hebrew words are literally “sickness” and “disease” Dr. Isaac leeser’s translation of the Hebrew bible, a translation authorized for use by Orthodox Jews reads: “our diseases did he bear himself, and our pains he carries while we indeed esteemed him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted”
Mathew8:17(17) “that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by esaias the prophet, saying himself took our infirmities and bare our sickness”.
The text is clearer yet. Matthew is quoting Isaiah. If you check the reference, you’ll find that he is quoting Isaiah 53:4, I like to say it this way: “Jesus took my infinities and bare my sicknesses”.
I read this verse for years before I understand what it was saying: Jesus actually-literally took the causes of our sickness and disease. He took our infinities and bare our sicknesses.
We know that Jesus was made to be sin for us (2cor5:21) the object of his sin-bearing was that we might be free from sin and the object of his sickness-bearing was that we might be free from sickness, the truth is also reflected in first peter2:24.
1peter2:24 24. Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness by whose stripes ye were healed.
Thus, three witness-isaiah, Matthew and peter- tell us not only that Jesus shed his blood for the remission of our sins but that with is stripes we are healed.
