How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
(Acts 10:38)
What did Jesus do with this anointing of the Holy Ghost and power? He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil. First, this scripture tells us that every person was healed. The words "every" and "all" are interchangeable.

Second, we learn that sickness is oppression of the devil. Satan is the oppressor, but Jesus is the Deliverer. Satan is the oppressor, but Jesus is the Healer. We know from this scripture that God wants us well. He doesn't want His Church to be under the oppression of the devil.

Acts 10:38 tells us the source of sickness. Even if we didn't have any more scriptures to rely upon, this text tells us that sickness comes from Satan and that Satan is the author of sickness.

Dr. John Alexander Dowie said, "Sickness is the foul offspring of its father Satan and its mother sin." That's where it came from. And since the time that Adam committed high treason in the Garden of Eden, a stream of sickness and suffering has flowed down into the human family. But throughout the Old Testament and the New Testament, God made provision to stay that plague.

I'm glad I found out that sickness and disease are from the devil. I'm not going to have anything that belongs to the devil. I'm not going to have sickness and disease!

Satan is the author of sickness and disease. I know that now. So I'm not afraid of sickness and disease, and I will not have sickness and disease. If Jesus tarries His coming, I'll die without sickness and disease.
