Re: If you are sick, you need to cast out the demons.


Good post Refreshed! I totally agree with it!

Insight, I am concerned about anyone that gets involved in these type of healing ministries that are contrary to the bible.

Refreshed laid out some great points, but there are even more to be found in the bible.

For example, one of my favorite passages where Paul pleads with God to take away his affliction and God says this to him:

2 Corinthians 12:9

9But he said to me, ďMy grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.Ē Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

I believe sometimes it is the will of God for someone to be healed, and sometimes it is the will of God for someone not to be healed. In either case, it is for His glory! While I pray everyday to be healed, I like to end my prayer as Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane, not my will Lord, but yours be done! To know that my health and all aspects of my life are in God's sovereign hands is what brings me strength and peace to be able to face each day. I don't think I'd have that strength and peace if I had demons inside me. But I will say this, I do believe Satan and his demons strive to take away my peace and deceive me. I feel that strongly and sometimes in my very weak moments I start to stupidly believe their lies, and I start to lose my hope, and my peace and my strength to go on! Those are excruciatingly painful times and then I come back to the truths that God continually, and patiently teaches me, that He loves and cares for me more than I could even know, that he knows exactly what I'm going through and is right here with me, that he is doing a great work in me through these afflictions, and that there is unending hope for me, and it's all unfolding according to His will!

I put a devotional down below by Joni Tada Eareckson called, Jesus came for this reason, that also gives a powerful biblical passage showing Jesus didn't always heal the sick and disabled, even while he was on this earth, and that He had a much bigger reason for coming than to just fix temporary suffering.

There are also tons of scriptures that talk about our temporary suffering in this world, and what all purposes God is accomplishing through it.
