(Smiles…) Don’t be scared. I cannot slap you. I remember an incident that occurred sometime ago in my secondary school; a boy lied against the school principal and he was even saying it affirmatively such that the principal had to shout at him saying “I will slap you!”
Welcome to #HealingNexus for this week. Like that boy who lied against the principal, there are so many people out there lieing against God too and I am sure if God should decide to appear to these set of people, they will end up being slapped!
The lie we usually tell is that “God made me sick!” This set of people will say “God is using sickness to teach me a lesson.” If I may ask, was Jesus playing ludo on the cross? Is He the author of sickness? Is He a wicked God? There are so many other questions I would love to ask these people!
I know that you will want to ask me about Job’s case. Let me inform you that God was not the one who afflicted Job with sickness! Here is how it went:
A. Devil made Job sick,
B. Job permitted it,
C. God healed him.
Here are the biblical references:
DEVIL MADE JOB SICK
Job 2:7 – “So went Satan forth from the presence of the LORD, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown”.
JOB ALLOWED IT BY NEGATIVE THOUGHT/FEAR
Job 3:25 – “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.”
GOD HEALED HIM
Job 42:10 – “And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before”.
Now let me ask you this: If you are a father and your son offends you, can you use a blade used by a HIV positive patient to cut him? I know your answer is NO! Also, GOD is saying He will not make you sick!
Let’s meet next week for part two.
Can you type this: GOD WON’T CAUSE ME TO FALL SICK.
And do well to share your testimony in the comment box, if you have any questions too you can ask
