I have been suffering from an illness for a long time, but I am attending church after receiving evangelism from a friend who is working hard in faith. What can I do to quickly get rid of the pain of disease and lead a healthy life?
Today, many diseases are being treated with advances in medicine and science, but the number of patients is increasing rather than decreasing. Incurable and incurable diseases that cannot be solved even with advanced medical technology are increasing day by day, but most people try to rely on drugs or medicine for all diseases.
However, in order to escape from the pain of the disease and lead a strong life through more fundamental treatment, we need to know where the disease came from. Also, if you know how to be healed by faith, you will be healed quickly and completely, and you will receive spiritual blessings as well.
- You need to know the root cause of the disease.
Just as there cannot be an effect without a cause, every disease has a cause.
Exodus 15:26 says, “If you will obey the word of the LORD your God, and do what is right in my sight, and obey my commandments and keep all my ordinances, I will not bring upon you one of all the diseases I brought upon the Egyptians. The Lord heals you.” God called Himself the ‘Jehovah who heals’.
Therefore, we can see that the cause of disease is that ‘they do not heed the word of the Lord, do not do what is right in the sight of God, and do not listen to God’s commandments and keep all his ordinances’.
In addition, there are records throughout the Bible that the cause of disease is sin. John 5:14 says, “Behold, you are healed, and sin no more, so that nothing worse happens.” Deuteronomy 7:12-15 says, “If you hear all these laws and keep them and do them… the Lord will heal you of all diseases.” He will keep away from you, and the evil evil of Egypt, which you know, will not come upon you, but will come on all who hate you.”
Deuteronomy 28 records the blessings of keeping and obeying God’s commandments and the curses of disobedience.
Sometimes there are people who say that they have a disease even though they have not sinned. However, you need to know that it is because there are things that are sinful in the eyes of God, even if they do not consider them to be sins.
For example, if you use your God-given healthy body indiscriminately or immorally, or if you do not follow the rules, make mistakes, or do not lead a regular life, you are uncontrollable and greedy, and you do not love your own body. It is a fact that, because you did not follow God’s will, it belongs to sin.
- You must know how to heal by faith
1) You must accept Jesus Christ
A person suffering from a disease must first receive Jesus Christ and become a child of God in order to come to God and receive treatment. That is, you must firmly believe that God is omnipotent and can perform any miracle, and that he will be healed if he asks in the name of Jesus Christ, since Jesus was whipped to atone for all diseases.
Therefore, no matter how serious or old a disease may be, believe that if the God of power heals you, you will be healed in an instant, and please entrust all the problems of disease to the Lord for resolution.
The paralytic in Mark 2:3-12 longed to come to Jesus even after hearing the news of Jesus. He heard the rumor that Jesus was a powerful man who healed the sick, cast out demons, and healed the lepers, so he thought that he too could be healed if he met Jesus and believed. So, even in difficult situations, he was able to receive immediate treatment by showing his faith and devotion to come to Jesus with the help of his friends.
Proverbs 8:17 also says, “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.” 2) We must break down the wall of sin
Even if you believe in the God who heals you, if there is a wall of sin between you and God, God cannot answer you. That is why Isaiah 1:15-20 says, “You will pray much, but I will not hear you, for your hands are full of blood. Wash yourselves and make yourselves clean.” Isaiah 59:1-3 says, “The Lord Neither is his hand short that it cannot save, nor his ear dull that it cannot hear; but he has made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you from hearing, for your hands are blood and your fingers are for it is unclean with iniquity, and your lips speak lies, and your tongue utters bitterness.”
If so, what specifically do we need to repent of?
First, not believing in God and not accepting Jesus Christ is the greatest sin and we must repent of it as it becomes a wall with God.
Second, we must repent of not loving our brothers.
Third, if you pray for your own greed and lust, you must repent.
Fourth, if you prayed with doubts without faith, you must repent.
Fifth, we must repent of not keeping the commandments.
Sixth, we must repent of what we did not sow before God.
Therefore, those who have never believed in God and suffered from diseases must accept Jesus as their Savior and start a life of faith.
Also, those who believe in God but cannot escape from the pain of disease should examine their hearts for evil thoughts such as hatred, envy, jealousy, injustice, greed, malice, murder, strife, slander, arrogance, and gossip, and ask God for help. We must repent and pray for forgiveness.
Before God heals physical diseases, he breaks down the wall of sin and leads him to prosper in the soul. And with the fire of the Holy Spirit, he burns germs of all diseases, heals the weak with the power of God, raises the dead, and creates something out of nothing.
Therefore, if we receive prayers from those who have received the power of God, various diseases will be cured, the crippled will become normal, the blind will open their eyes, the deaf will hear, the dumb will speak, and the lame will get up and walk and run.
- To maintain health, we must live in righteousness by faith.
Deuteronomy 34:7 says, “Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died, and his eyes were not dim, and his strength did not fail.” He was sanctified and lived in righteousness to the extent that he was recognized as a faithful man in all his household, having more meekness before God than all people on the face of the earth (Numbers 12:3,7).
Abraham also obeyed by faith, fearing God, and becoming perfect before God, so he lived a long life to the age of 175 (Genesis 25:7). Although Daniel did not bow down before idols and ate only vegetables, he was stronger and wiser than the other boys who ate meat and oil, and he became loved even by the king of Babylon (Dan. 1).
In this way, if we live in righteousness and truth by faith, we can not get sick and receive strong blessings because Jesus came to this earth and paid for all our sins by shed His blood. It is because He gave us healing (Isaiah 53:5-6, 1 Peter 2:24).
If we do not have faith in God, we live according to the lusts of the flesh and suffer from various diseases and suffering because of our sins. .
Therefore, I hope that you will realize the root cause of the disease, become righteous through faith, and receive blessings in all things and good health just as your soul prospers.
