"And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?" (Luke 13:16)

We see from this Scripture that:
(1) Sickness is a bondage and
(2) Satan is the author of sickness.

For years, I've heard people say, "God chose to have me sick." But Jesus said Satan bound the woman; God didn't.

The truth is that God detests sickness as much as He detests sin, because sickness is a result of the original sin. Sickness didn't come into the world until sin did.

When God ruled and reigned on the earth through Adam, there was no sickness on the earth. But Adam gave Satan his authority and a long-term lease on creation, and Satan brought sickness with him.

Yet people still blame God for sickness. God had nothing to do with it! It just doesn't make any sense to call God the author of sickness.

For instance, 1 John 3:8 says, "…For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." But if God made anyone sick under Jesus' ministry, then Jesus was destroying the works of God when He healed people!

If Jesus destroyed God's works, then we're in trouble because the Bible says a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand (Matt. 12:25).

No, Jesus never destroyed one work of God. He only "went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil" (Acts 10:38).

Any sickness that attacks my body is a bondage of Satan.
No sickness is from God. Jesus came to set me free from
every sickness and disease, so I accept my healing now!
