DIG for Friday the 17th of March…..He came to destroy the works of the devil…..1 John 3 v 8

“But I thought God uses sickness and disease to teach us lessons and make us better people” is a statement that I hear Christians saying from time to time.

Let me be clear on this; that type of statement is absolute nonsense.

In this short series we have seen that Jesu never put illness onto a person so we know God will be the same (remember Jesus can only do what the Father did and He is the express image of the Father).

Jesus came to do a number of things and one part of His mission was to remove sickness and disease.

1 John 3 v 8 tells us that Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, and we see Him destroying illness and disease throughout the Gospels.

This shows us that illness is the work of the devil and not the work of the Lord.

If illness was from the Lord why would Jesus heal people?

God would be schizophrenic if He were to send sickness on people and then send Jesus to heal them, this is just not logical (it is also not Biblical).

Jesus came to bring us life in abundance, while the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10 v 10).

What part does illness and disease play in an abundant life?

No part is the answer to that question!

Abundant life and healing is form God while sickness and illness is from the devil.

Please do not let yourself think that any illness you have may be from God; it is not, it is from the enemy and should be resisted.

God always wants you healed and send Jesus to destroy the works of the devil so that you can live a life of abundance and health.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you want me to live in health and to be delivered from all sickness, pain and disease”.

1 John 3 v 8…..He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was made manifested, to destroy the works of the devil
