Disobedience and Sin Prevent Healing
But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all of His commandments and His statures which I command you today, that ll these curses will come upon you and overtake you (Deuteronomy 28:15).
Disobedience and sin are one and the same; they open the doors of our lives to their consequences–sickness, disease, and every other form of the curse.
Once we were out ministering in a Masai village, when a Christian woman came running over to ask us to come quickly to minister healing to her daughter who was dying from an asthma attack. When we arrived, we found her lying on the ground, gasping for breath. I rebuked a spirit of death and the asthma and released the Spirit of Life to flow through her. I wasn’t seeing the quickly results that were needed. Then I found a religious trinket in her hand and took it away from her; the attack stopped immediately and she began to breath normally again. With the help of an interpreter, I witnessed to her about Jesus Christ, but she refused to receive Him as Lord and Savior. Instead she picked up the trinket again, and the asthma attack immediately started up again in full force, just like when we first found her. She refused Jesus Christ and clung to a human-made religious image that could not hear or help her. She disobeyed the first commandment that says, “You shall have no other gods before Me” (Exod. 20:3).
Another time, David and I were ministering in a different village when we came across a little boy who could not walk. But once the trinkets from the witch doctor were removed, he was set free and could instantly walk.
The occult world in all forms is rebellion toward God, and we cannot mingle in witchcraft or satanic practices in any shape or form and believe for a miracle from God. It does not work. It matters not what culture we are from, we need to rid ourselves and our homes of all satanic and New Age books, movies, games jewelry, trinkets, statures, pictures, and / or similar items. Both black and white magic are of the same spirit–of satan–and they need to be renounced and removed immediately in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
