And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people – Matthew 4:23
Sickness and disease is not from the Lord. The Lord does not teach us by putting sickness on us. That is against His nature, He is a good Father.
Sickness is a part of the fallen world, its part of the curse. It has its source in the devil and the kingdom of darkness. Jesus said the devil came to kill steal and destroy (John 10:10), he uses every means available to fulfill that agenda of killing, stealing and destroying. Sickness and disease is one of his major tools to attack us. His kingdom operates by Fear and Death, unlike the Kingdom of God which operates by Love and Life. He uses fear to keep people bound in slavery. Sickness is a weapon which he uses to keep us in fear. He has been successful in developing our faith in his weapons, we fear diseases or sickness, because we believe in its power to harm us and thus he keeps us bound to him. One of the biggest deception of the devil in this area is that sickness is from God and He uses it to teach and train us. Once you buy into that deception you will not resist sickness as you should.
In the life of Jesus He went preaching the gospel of the kingdom and was healing all kinds of diseases and sickness. (Matthew 4:23) Healing the sick was a major part of His ministry. He even asked His disciples to go preach the kingdom of God and heal the sick. (Luke 9:2, Matthew 10:8) Healing the sick is a big priority in the Kingdom of God. The Father’s heart is to see all His children free from sickness.
Jesus paid a heavy price on the cross to earn our salvation. He has paid the price for the salvation of our soul and also redeemed us from sickness, by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5, 1 Peter 2:24). He took up our infirmities and bore our diseases (Matthew 8:17). Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us (Gal 3:13).
When God himself is against sickness and stands by us to get us healed, no power of sickness can prevail against us. When God is for us who can be against us (Romans 8:31). Just resist sickness. Do not tolerate it. Tolerating sickness is despising the huge payment Jesus paid on the cross to redeem us from the curse.
Spend time in His Word for they are life unto those that find them and health to all their flesh. (Proverbs 4:22). Allow the Spirit of God to reveal the reality of what Jesus finished on the cross and stand on it. Speak to that mountain to move, As children of the most high we have the authority. Confess that you are healed by His stripes. Hold on to the Word until healing manifests.
Healing is the Children’s Bread in the Kingdom of God. Receive It!
