Does Sickness Come From God?

 In Charismatic, Christian Living, Divine Healings and Miracles, faith, healing, healing power, Supernatural Healing

There is a lot of controversy within the body of Christ as to whether or not sickness and disease come from God? Let’s see what the Bible has to say about this.

Jesus says in John 10:10, The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Jesus explains His motives for coming to this earth, to give us life and life in abundance.

Let me ask you, “Does sickness or disease give us life or life in abundance?” No. So, can they come from God? No, they cannot.

According to James 1:17, God’s gifts are good and perfect. Sickness and disease are not, they do not give us life and life in abundance. But health and healing are good and perfect gifts, and they do give us life and life in abundance, and they are God’s gifts to us.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17 NKJ

      When we stay focused on the Lord and His Word, healing is simple. :O)

    I agree somewhat with the above article, some things that God brings into our lives or allows IS good and perfect…but it might not be easy. I have come to realize that the time I am closest to God or rely on him the most is when I am hurting, in pain or going through a very difficult time. God sees the bigger picture, he sees things we do not understand and he sees how pain and suffering can bring us to the feet of the cross. So, although I do not think he is a mean God who is just waiting to strike us with an illness or disease, there is a part of me that knows he is directing us and changing us in EVERY circumstance. Can you give me your opinion on this….
    Thank You

      Thank you for sharing Marla. You ask for my opinion on this, well it sounds nice, but it does not line up with Scripture or with the message of atonement. Jesus suffered greatly so that we would not have to.
