Text: Romans 5:12-17
“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32
Salvation means deliverance from sin and it’s penalties.
God is not the originator of evil, sickness and disease but the answer. He made us sinless and good, that is, with perfect health. Satan brought in sin and when man yielded, mankind began to suffer the natural consequences which includes death and sickness. According to our text, death began to reign when man sinned. Man had no more control but was ruled and dominated by the power of death. Sickness is a tool of death.
However, this narrative has been reversed for everyone who accepts the gift of righteousness offered through Jesus Christ. The truth is that you are no longer under the dominion of sickness. Rather than sickness reigning and ruling over you, you have been raised to reign and to rule over sickness. Satan brought sin and sickness but Jesus brought in salvation and health. Hallelujah!
“For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)” (Rom 5:17).
Did you notice that? You are to reign in life through Jesus Christ.
Sin and sickness are satan’s twin evil while salvation and healing are God’s twin provision for your deliverance.
“Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” (I Peter 2:24). “…He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.” (Mat 8:17)
The same sacrifice of Jesus on the cross BORE your sins and your sicknesses. Not one of your sins and of your sicknesses but ALL of them. “Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,” (Psa 103:3).
Friends,the fact is the medical test result or what you are feeling while the truth is what God’s word says about your condition. Don’t deny the facts but raise the truth above it. It is this truth you know that will deliver you and not the facts.
1. I resist sickness and disease in my body and I receive my blood-purchased healing in Jesus name.
2. I reject the verdict of the devil and every evil report concerning my health in Jesus name.
1. I don’t deny the facts about my health but I raise the truth above them.
2. I keep standing on what God says concerning my health irrespective of how I feel or what medical report says.
