24 News about him spread as far as Syria, and people soon began bringing to him all who were sick. And whatever their sickness or disease, or if they were demon possessed or epileptic or paralyzed—he healed them all.
Matthew 4:24 (NLT)
This is the part where Jesus had recruited his first few disciples and begun his ministry. Jesus’ ministry is not empty talk. It involved real healing. Jesus healed all the sick, demon possessed, epileptic and paralyzed. Please note the word “all” at the end of the above verse. I have a disclaimer here. It does not mean Jesus healed all the sick, demon possessed, epileptic and paralyzed in that region. What it means is mean Jesus healed all the sick, demon possessed, epileptic and paralyzed who came to him.
You may also have noticed that Jesus did not lay down any conditions to be healed. He never said that in order to qualify for healing you must confess all your sins regularly, read the Bible at least one hour every day, serve in church at least once a month, go for mission at least once a year, give money to church whenever the pastors ask for it or any other religious nonsense. Jesus’ healing in the Bible is unconditional. All you have to do is to go to him ask for healing and you will get it. He will never tell you that God wants you to be sick in order to show you his sufficient grace. The idea that sufficient grace equals sickness and disease is nothing more than theology, which is a lie from the pit of hell.
This reminds me of the Superman series. If you are trapped in a burning building, all you have to do is to call on the name of Superman. Superman will fly over faster than a speeding bullet to rescue you. I have never watched a series that shows Superman refusing to rescue people because he wanted to show them his sufficient grace in being barbecued in the burning building. Neither have I come across any scenes where Superman rescued people selectively. Superman rescued as many people as he can. These include those who do not pray, confess their sins nor go to church.
So, if you are still unable to understand the character of Jesus, watch Superman shows. Some cartoon can reveal more truth about Jesus than the theologians.
What do all these mean to us? We need to have a strong Bible foundation to do well in life. Whether you want to be happy, healthy, rich and successful in any area in your life, you need a strong Bible foundation to help you to achieve them. A strong Bible foundation is also necessary to overcome the lies of theology.
The Bible tells us that God is always on our side. His greatest desire is for us to prosper and be in health as our souls prosper. Health and wealth are a part of God’s desire for us. So, we don’t have to feel ashamed in admitting that we want to have abundant health and wealth in our lives. Jesus did not die at the Cross for us to be sick and poor.
As for the doctrine worshippers and theologians, they are the ones who should be ashamed of themselves because they had exchanged the truth for a pack of lies called theology.
As for us Christians, let us mind our business in using the Bible for our prosperity in all areas of our lives.
