THE devil DOES NOT WORK FOR GOD God is in THE BUSINESS of setting people free and healing them but the devil is in the business of oppressing people and causing illnesses. The devil does not work for God. He works AGAINST God. The following passage of scripture reveals who is the source of all kinds of suffering including sicknesses. Luke 13:10-16 – Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 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. But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath; and he said to the crowd, “There are six days on which men ought to work; therefore come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day.” The Lord then answered him and said, “Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it? “So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, WHOM SATAN HAS BOUND–THINK OF IT–FOR EIGHTEEN YEARS, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?” When Jesus saw this woman, He did not call her and ask her what lessons God had taught her during the eighteen years her back was bent. No! He called her, laid His hands on her and she got healed. He went on to state that it was satan [not God] who had bound that woman through a spirit [or demon] of infirmity. Also, Acts 10:38 summarize the mission the Lord Jesus Christ had on earth. This scripture reveals to us that the devil, directly or indirectly is behind ALL FORMS of oppression and that Jesus’ mission was to UNDO the works of the devil, not the works of God! ACTS 10:38 – “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and HEALING ALL WHO WERE OPPRESSED BY THE DEVIL, for God was with Him. This should also be the mission of every Christian;To rebuke the devil and set people free from all kinds of oppression [especially sicknesses]. John 20:21 – So Jesus said to them [His disciples and all Christians] … AS THE FATHER HAS SENT ME, I ALSO SEND YOU.” DECREE: From this day forward, I just like my SAVIOR, I go about doing good and healing all that are oppressed by the devil for God is not only WITH me but also IN me! Amen. 1ST JOHN 4:4 – You are of God… because He [Holy Spirit] who is IN YOU is greater than he [the devil] who is in the world. Mark 16:17 – “And these signs will follow those who believe [Christians]: In My name they will CAST OUT DEMONS… they will LAY HANDS ON THE SICK, AND THEY WILL RECOVER.”
