IT DIDN’T COME FROM GOD ;
(Take Advantage Of God’s Grace For Your Health);
TO THE BIBLE 1 John 3:8 AMPC
“…The reason the Son of God was made manifest (visible) was to undo (destroy, loosen, and dissolve) the works the devil [has done].”
“God sometimes takes His people sick to humble them and get them to repent of their wrongdoing,” you may have heard someone argue. But that statement couldn’t have been further from the truth or more inconsistent with Jesus’ words. God doesn’t use the devil’s tools to punish His kids; He disciplines them with His Word. Thankfully, the Word is clear on who’s behind sickness: “…God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him” (Acts 10:38).
Notice that it was God Who sent Jesus Christ, who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil. Matthew 8:17 tells us that Jesus “…Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses.” He took sicknesses and diseases away from us; and if He did, then it means we ought not to be sick anymore. His grace has brought us healing and health.
This lets us know it is God’s will to have every sick person healed. It also makes it clear who afflicts people with sickness-satan. But thanks be to God, the grace of God that brings salvation, divine healing health, righteousness, glory, and dominion has appeared unto all men through Christ Jesus! He has the power to make you well and live an excellent life, where you reign by His grace through righteousness. Take advantage of His grace to live the healthy, vibrant, and glorious life!
For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us, therefore, come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
1 Peter 2:24
24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose [a]stripes you were healed.
Jesus bore my infirmities and carried my sorrows. He was pierced for my transgressions, and bruised for my iniquities; the punishment that brought me peace, prosperity, and goodness was laid upon Him, and now I live the glory life. Hallelujah!
