Falsely accusing God for sicknesses caused by the destruction, wickedness, and greed of man

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being,” (Genesis 2:7).

Even before I knew the Lord, I strongly believed food was intended to be like medicine and health to our bodies. I came from a family on my mothers side with four practitioners of natural medicine, so I leaned strongly towards finding natural ways to improve health.

I obtained my degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition in 1997. Though, I don’t agree with everything I learned through it – too broad and focused on macronutrients – I did learn a lot about the effects of vitamin deficiencies on health.

Fast forward to 2002 when I got born again…over these past twenty years of walking with the Lord by the Word and Spirit, He’s often used the practical, science to confirm His Word and clear His namesake from being falsely accused for the rampant sickness we see in the earth. Of course, these lies are inspired by the evil one made easy to pull off by man’s unwillingness to know Him through His Word, Holy Spirit, and to search out matters with His help regarding the circumstances in their lives.

Therefore, it’s easier for those with a very small view of God, lacking in the truth of His Word, to simply point their finger at Him when they or their children get sick.

For example, one I have seen too many times to count is when a woman or her husband posts on social media how she/his wife recently miscarried and that God in His sovereignty chose to take their baby from them. Sometimes with an additional comment that it must be “to teach them some lesson.” I always pray for them and never comment as obviously it’s not the right time to try to use scripture to redirect them to the real cause of the miscarriage. But it always grieves me how many people comment in agreement that basically the Lord had some wonderful reason and purpose for killing off their baby.

We are not called to walk by the reasonings, explanations, and doctrines of man, we are called to walk by the Word of God. For it is written in John 10:10, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

“Let God be true and every man a liar,” (Romans 3:4).

Then even more grievously, they or someone else goes on to quote verses from the book of Job to elaborate and continue to accuse God of taking their baby. Meaning they believe that Jesus made absolutely no difference through His finished work of the cross, His shed blood, His broken body, His stripes, His death, and resurrection, and in our covenant standing in Christ as compared to ole Job’s.

For it is written in Colossians 1:13, “He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son.”

And in Hebrews 8:6, “But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.”

As a fact, any new covenant believer who compares themselves to Job who didn’t have Jesus to translate him from the dominion (control) of darkness and into the kingdom of God is perishing for lack of knowledge of His Word.

This is EXACTLY how the thief is able to deceive and steal kill and destroy His very elect: their massive ignorance of the Word of God, their covenant standing in Christ, that Jesus snatched them from the dominion/control of satan, and transferred them not only into His kingdom but to be a part of His Body.

Satan loves when people, especially His children, attribute the wickedness and destruction of man (as inspired by that liar) to the earth to the Lord. It’s NOT God’s will for His children to stay ignorant of His Word and refuse to surrender to His Holy Spirit as their Teacher.

Many women learn that their miscarriages are caused by hormonal imbalances, and once they take care of it, they are able to conceive and carry their baby to term and healthy. And what causes hormonal imbalances in women?

“Artificial chemicals which resemble estrogen (known as xeno-estrogens) are present in our environment from pesticides, insecticides, solvents and plastics. These xeno-estrogens can damage the ovaries and testicles leading to hormonal imbalances such as infertility and premature menopause. It is only the liver that can break down these toxic chemicals so that they can be eliminated from the body. It is always important to improve the liver function in cases of hormonal imbalances.”Dr. Sandra Cabot, Hormonal Imbalances, June 29, 2020

Women today and over the past century really, slather all sorts of toxic chemicals onto their skin via makeup, skin creams, most stored in plastic bottles. What we put on our skin goes directly into our bloodstream, affects health, liver health, etc. Nutrient deficient, food soaking in plastic wraps and bags, then eaten and on and on and on. And this is just a teeny, tiny picture of the death and destruction man has brought to the earth in how they process food, release toxic chemicals into our it, our water, the air, etc.

Why? Profit over people, the sin and wickedness of greed.

It is not God’s will nor His doing nor inspiration for man to destroy His creation and His divine order and way of doing things – growing food, raising animals, soil care, etc. Documentaries like Food, Inc. expose the wickedness and greed of man causing rampant sickness in the earth. And in this post, I am not even getting into the damages vaccines have caused to humans, the destruction of their immune systems, their DNA, etc. Evidence that proves John 10:10 to be true amongst many verses.

Now, let’s look at man’s responsibility in the matter through His Holy Word, His truth that sets free…

“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth,” (Genesis 1:26).

“What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,”
(Psalm 8:4-6)

“The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; But the earth He has given to the children of men,” (Psalm 115:16).

So, yes the Lord OWNS the entire universe, but concerning the earth, He appointed US to manage it for a season, to have dominion [rulership; sovereign control] over ALL the earth and ALL that it is in it. The Word says He GAVE it to us.

Therefore, it is our responsibility to care for it well, to grow our food, and tend our animals His way, but the Word says MOST of the world rejects His ways and His will and chooses instead the path that leads to destruction (Matt 7:13-14). As mankind, we have failed miserably at tending and managing the earth He entrusted into our hands. Evil men who lust after money and put their pockets over people are growing most of the world’s food.

We don’t get to point our finger at the destruction man has caused in the earth at the Lord. Destruction that is causing so much sickness and disease. If man chooses against His will and sows destruction, he reaps destruction.

I watched a wonderful video by Dr. Berg today that touched on the link between the destruction of trace minerals (by man, not God’s will) and its link to cancer.

Dr. Berg from this video, “So you need trace minerals to make amino acids which then help turn into proteins which are basically just a long chain of different amino acids. And when you’re missing certain trace minerals devastating things can happen to your body.

Much like missing a trace mineral in the SOIL will have devastating effects on the plants as well as devastating effects on the animals that eat the plant. And on top of that devastating effects on humans eating animals that are deficient in certain trace minerals.

In the video, he mentions this book too…

An excerpt from the book description of Soil, Grass, and Cancer – The Link Between Humand and Animal Health and the Mineral Balance of the Soil: “This long-out-of-print classic showed that soil fertility was directly linked to human and animal disease. Almost a half-century ago, Andr Voisin had already grasped the importance of the subterranean world. He mapped the elements of the SOIL and their effects on plants, and ultimately, animal and human life as well. He saw the hidden danger in oversimplified fertilization practices and the use of toxic chemicals that ignore the delicate balance of trace minerals and nutrients in the SOIL.”

Another quote from Dr. Berg regarding the book, “It’s a fascinating study regarding missing trace minerals in the SOIL and that affects the plant and the animals and humans. Because the foundation of our health actually starts in the SOIL. If there’s something missing in the SOIL, which there is, how can you create food and animals that feed us that turn into health. You can’t. These trace minerals are vitally important because it’s at the heart of enzymes and making vitamins like B12. And it’s at the heart of making antioxidants. And even phytonutrients.”

While watching this video by Dr. Berg, the Holy Spirit gave me this verse, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being,” (Genesis 2:7). It’s just like the Lord to show me that He made us from the dust of the ground (soil), and it’s important for us to take care of it, so we can have everything we need to keep our bodies (made from said soil) healthy. His Word and Spirit are amazing. Best teacher every, always!

If you’ve never watch the documentary Food, Inc., you need to. I believe the Lord has used it mightily to expose the enemy…

Bible Study and Teaching, Faith, Healing

Jesus purchased your “deserve” for healing from sickness

Source: freebibleimages.org, contributed by LUMO Project

“And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up. But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, “Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.” And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God,” (Luke 13:11-13).

Two-thousand years after the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His establishment of a new and better covenant based on new and better promises, the devil is still using the same demonic spirits who influenced the Pharisees to use church leaders and our brothers and sisters in Christ to attack and speak against healing and deliverance from sickness and spirits of infirmity. And to deny the power of the Holy Spirit.

It continues to boggle my mind to hear how many would rather preach the captivity of satan to sickness rather than the One who came to heal us. The One who is named Healer, Redeemer, Deliverer, Resurrection, and Life. The One who gave body to be broken, striped, and put to death then raised again to redeem us from sin and all its effects (the curse of the law), including physical and spiritual sicknesses.

Recently, I heard another church leader preaching in favor of the devil’s sicknesses. He mockingly said something sarcastic about “Oh and those Christians who think they ‘DESERVE’ healing.” I turned it off of course because I am for those who preach and cherish everything Jesus paid for His children to have under a far superior covenant than the old covenant. For those who cherish the power of His name and blood.

I brought the idea before the Lord, and He said, “Jesus purchased your ‘deserve’ for healing.”

Of course, literally NO ONE, in their own righteousness deserves anything from the Lord, but glory to God, when we were born again, we IMMEDIATELY spiritually became a PART OF Christ’s very body and IMMEDIATELY indwelt by His Holy Spirit.

In Him, we are the very righteousness of God! The VERY righteousness of God, clothed in Christ’s perfection, forever, without end, no matter what we do or don’t do. We are SEALED by His blood in a permanent covenant relationship with Him.

So based on our perfect right standing with God the Father IN Jesus Christ, we can say we DESERVE healing because He purchased the deserve for us.

This truth is simply recognition of my covenant rights in Christ Jesus. What His blood bought for me. Glory to the Lamb of God! Glory to my Abba Father who freely have His Son for me and will freely give me all good things.

Check out the outragoeusly bold prayers and declarations of David when he was up against Goliath and king Abijah when he was up against king Jeroboam.

These are two men who boldy declared victory over their enemies before God and Israel BEFORE their battles even began.

Why? Because they had covenant grounds to do so.

This is exactly why EVERY child of God can by faith declare victory over all sickness and disease and every work of the devil coming against their bodies! And expect total healing. We have the covenant grounds to do so. By Jesus’ stripes, we were healed. He sent His Word, Jesus, and healed us and delivered us from our destructions and on and on.

Did you recall that the old covenant law is called the ministry of death and condemnation? And that the new covenant is called the ministry of righteousness?

“But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory. For even what was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels. For if what is passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious,” (2 Cor 3:7-11).

I suggest reading all of 2 Corinthians 3. It’s excellent and lifegiving and sets free! Though the old covenant was considered glorious, the new covenant exceeds MUCH MORE in glory!

Child of God, we are no longer under the ministry of death and condemnation but under the new covenant ministry of righteousness paid for in full by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, full of new and better promises AND authority over ALL the power of the enemy.

Do not allow anyone to preach sickness to you as a blessing! All sickness is a work of the devil. God is not for the works of the devil or anything that was birthed into the earth because of sin. The devil is a liar!

Sickness is satanic captivity. Jesus came to set the captives free. (Acts 10:38) Hallelujah!

“But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises,” (Hebrews 8:6).

“He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil,” (1 John 3:8).

Behold your mother (and the long life of the apostle John)

Image source: The Passion of the Christ

I was reading in John recently and these verses came together and made me wonder if there was a connection between the apostle John honoring Jesus’ “mother” and <a href="http://&lt;!– wp:paragraph –> <p><a href="https://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/john-the-apostle-bible-biography-facts-and-death/&quot; target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">https://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/john-the-apostle-bible-biography-facts-and-death/</a>I was reading in John recently and these verses came together and made me wonder if there was a connection between the apostle John honoring Jesus' "mother" and his long life in comparison to the other orginal apostles…</p> his long life in comparison to the other orginal apostles

  • “When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold your son!” Then He said to the disciple, “Behold your mother!” And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home,” (John 19:27-28).
  • “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth,” (Ephesians 6:1-3).

Jesus saw John’s heart and handpicked him to become His mother’s son and Mary his mother. And what a beautiful tribute to her that it was the last thing He took care of on the cross before His death: His mother.

But glory to God, He rose again to life, so we could too if we choose!

Then we read in John 21…

“Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at the supper, and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?” Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, “But Lord, what about this man?”

Jesus said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.”

Then this saying went out among the brethren that this disciple would not die. Yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you?” (John 21:20-23).

Something, we’ll find out why John outlived them (possible to age 98) when we see Jesus face to face but also a reminder to honor our mothers and fathers not only because we should but that it comes with a promise that we may live long on the earth.

Happy Mother’s Day!
