Far above Sicknesses.

The subject of healing and divine health is one of the most important teachings. Thus, a wise believer will give himself to investing in healing and health.

Get God’s word on healing for yourself and loved ones. The more you invest, the more you can take out when it is needed.

‘ And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you–and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.’

Mark 4:24

To understand God’s mind as it concerns your healing, you have to understand certain things. Know these things and let them settle within your spirit.

  1. Jesus has the power to heal all sicknesses and diseases.

‘And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. ‘

Matthew 4:23
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/MAT.4.23

As a believer, you must bring yourself to believe that Jesus can heal every kind of sickness and disease. God’s desire is that your body functions as He has designed it, thus anything impeding His desire must be taken away.

2. Jesus heals all who come to Him.

‘When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: ‘

Matthew 8:16
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/MAT.8.16

No one is an exception to the healing of God. Sinner or Saint, Male or Female, Young or Old. He heals everybody, provided you can come to him.

‘All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. ‘

John 6:37
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/JHN.6.37

God has never demanded a qualification to receive healing. You do not have to dot all your I’s and cross all your T’s. Simply believe that Jesus is able to heal you of that disease and He will.

3. God is not happy that a man is sick. As a matter of fact, He has delegated his authority to believers to heal the sick.

And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; ‘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. ‘

Mark 16:17–18
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/MRK.16.18

Because God is compassionate, both on the just and the unjust alike, He has delegated his authority to his Sons to heal the sick. Not only did He instruct them to heal the sick, He assured that the sick will recover.

Having understood the basics, let’s move over to where we are.

SEATED.

‘far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: ‘

Ephesians 1:21
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/EPH.1.21

The believer has been designed to live above sickness and diseases. He has been called out of his physical family into the family of God. Here, sickness doesn’t exist.

‘And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; ‘

Revelation 5:9
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/REV.5.9

This means the believer might be physically born in Nigeria, but his realities are not the realities of Nigeria. Malaria is common to the African man, however the ‘African’ believer is not subject to malaria.

That is a good place to scream for joy!

Glory to God!

There are four points to note as it concerns the believer’s approach to sicknesses and diseases.

  1. You are not the sick needing healing; you are the healed the Devil is trying to make sick.

Your sicknesses were taken on the cross of Calvary, 2000 years before you were born. The moment you believed in Jesus, accepting him as Saviour and Lord, you got your healing package. Therein lies every form of healing — physical, mental, emotional, financial — for you throughout your lifetime.

‘But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. ‘

Isaiah 53:5
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/ISA.53.5

‘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. ‘

1 Peter 2:24
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/1PE.2.24

This means, the believer can never be sick!

However, we live in a fallen world where the body is subject to mortality and sometimes, the body may show signs of weakness and sickness. This does not mean that you are sick. It only means that the devil is trying to bring you to a reality that is not the reality of God. Your response to any feeling of sickness is to superimpose the word of God over your health.

‘God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar;

Romans 3:4
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/ROM.3.4

Let God be true. Let His word be true. You are NOT the sick needing healing!

2. Sickness is an oppression of the devil, the devil is under your feet, therefore, no devil can put sickness on you. 1 Peter 5:8,9; Acts 10:38; Eph 1:10.

‘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. ‘

Acts 10:38
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/ACT.10.38

3. The basis of sickness is sin. Before sin, sickness was non-existent. Your sins are now forgiven, therefore, there is no ground for sickness in your life, forever.

‘In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; ‘

Ephesians 1:7
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/EPH.1.7

The same cross that has cured the sin problem, cured the sickness problem. This means if your sins have been forgiven, then there is no place for the devil to inflict you with sickness and any manner of disease. Don’t yield to his antics, he will only try to deceive you that you have cancer. Resist him by faith and watch cancer melt like wax before the hot August sun!

‘Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

1 Peter 5:8-9
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/1PE.5.9

4. God has given us His name, and it towers in dominion above every other name (sicknesses included), therefore, by the exercise of the name of Jesus, every sickness bows.

‘Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. ‘

Philippians 2:11
https://www.bible.com/bible/1/PHP.2.11

Sickness is a name.

The name of Jesus has been exalted above every names.

Therefore, sickness bows to the name of Jesus.

Exercise your dominion in Christ Jesus. Be bold in healing the sick. Jesus has set you free from sickness, stand fast in that freedom.

Remember, you are SEATED. Far above Sicknesses.
