Now, let me disclose to you some types of sickness or diseases.
TYPES OR FORMS OF DISEASE OR SICKNESS
1. SPIRITUAL DISEASE:
This is the most deadly of all kinds of diseases. This type of disease is caused mainly by lack of prayerful life. Those who suffer this type of sickness are those who refused to open up their hearts for Jesus Christ to come in. when spiritual disease germs attack them, they give in. Spiritual disease are sometimes caused by demonic attacks. Spiritual sickness leads to spiritual death. Yes, someone might be spiritually dead, but physically alive. Such people are referred to as a “Walking Dead”.
Are you a Walking Dead?
2. MARITAL SICKNESS:
Many marriages today suffer marital disease and that is why the rate of divorce increase day by day. This type of sickness comes in when the joy of a family or marriage is lost.
The main consequence of this type of disease is lack of fruit of the womb or childlessness. Is your family suffering from this disease?
3. EMOTIONAL SICKNESS:
This type of sickness is suffered by both the rick and the poor. It is caused by disappointments in business, disappointment in marriage, promise and fail, heart breaks. Has your life challenges led you to this type of disease?
4. SOCIAL SICKNESS:
The category of people that suffer this type of sickness don’t find favour in social gatherings. When it reaches their turn to receive favour in public places, the favour ceases. As a result, such people find it very difficult to associate freely in the public.
Are you a patient of this disease?
5. FINANCIAL SICKNESS:
The patients of this disease rarely succeed in life. They find it difficult to meet up with their daily needs. They don’t even break even in any business they enroll into, not to talk of making profits.
Is your family suffering from financial sickness?
6. PHYSICAL AND HEREDITARY DISEASE:
Examples of such disease are ulcer, diabetes, acute malaria, typhoid, etc. When these sickness are not transferred from one generation to another or are not present in genes, they are termed PHYSCIAL DISEASES. But when they are present in genes, they are transferred from one generation to another and are termed HEREDITARY DISEASES.
Are you suffering from physical or hereditary disease?
I will now reveal some major causes of diseases or illness.
MAJOR CAUSES OF DISEASE OR ILL-HEALTH
Every type or form of diseases has a cause. This can be either spiritual or physical. Below are some of the major causes of diseases or sickness.
1. SIN AND IMMORALITY:
This is the major cause of many diseases especially spiritual disease. Sin is the disobedience to the word of God or a deviation from his will. In 2 Samuel 6:23 the Lord struck Michal (Saul’s daughter), David’s wife with barrenness because she mocked David for dancing and praising God (Read 2 Samuel 6).
Have you sinned against God?
2. HEREDITY OR INHERITANCE:
When such disease like diabetes, cancer, and ulcer are present in genes, they are transferred from one generation to another. In such cases, the causes of such sickness are heredity.
3. BAD AND POOR HABITS DIETS:
Too much consumption of some kinds of food leads to sickness or ill-health. Some of these dangerous food are alcohol, cigarette, Indian hemp, etc.
Alcohol helps to burn some excess body fats when taken moderately. But when taken in excess, it causes diabetes and hypertension.
But the best advice is to abstain from it. Some bad habits like drunkenness, smoking and drug abuse leads to diseases especially physical diseases.
Some people have been killed by their diets. Some types of food have poor nutritional values. God himself warned the Israelites not to eat pork meat because 90% of the nutritional contents of pork meat is cholesterol, which is not good for the body system. Also, pigs feed on dirty and unhealthy diets which contain different types of worms. When you eat poorly prepared pork meats, these worms are transferred into your body system, leading to ill-health. I have been sounding like a doctor, but this is the simple truth.
4. DEMONIC ATTACKS:
These are the major causes of spiritual sicknesses. The most annoying features of diseases caused by demonic or satanic attacks is that they are not physically detected or diagnosed. That is why some sick people go to hospital for diagnosis but doctors complain that they could not trace the causes of their illness.
Spiritual sicknesses are cured spiritually through prayer and deliverance.
5. LOW SPIRITUAL IMMUNITY:
This is also one of the causes of most spiritual diseases. Some people have low spiritual immunity. They don’t have enough spiritual disease fighters. As a result, when a spiritual sickness attacks them, they easily give in.
Low spiritual immunity is caused by lack of prayerful life.
Do you have low spiritual immunity?
JESUS CHRIST – THE HIGHEST PHYSICIAN
Do you know that Jesus Christ is the greatest Doctor?
Earthly doctors or physicians cure only physical sickness. But Jesus cures both physical and spiritual sicknesses. While he was on his earthly ministry, he went about doing good; curing the sick and even raising the dead.
Do you want Jesus Christ to heal you of your spiritual disease?
Do you want to know how he can heal you?
WHAT TO DO IN ORDER TO RECEIVE DIVINE HEALING
Divine healing is the most effective type of healing it releases you from both physical and spiritual sickness. Below are some of the things you have to do in order to receive healing from Jesus Christ.
1. REPENT FROM YOUR SINS:
Divine healing is only meant for children of God. If you must receive divine healing, then you must be a child of God. But how can you receive divine healing while you still dwell in sin? Repent and be healed.
2. HAVE FAITH AND BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD:
For divine healing to be effective, it needs faith. You must have faith and also believes that God can do what he says he would do.
In Matthew 8:5-13, Jesus was amazed at the faith of a Roman official whose servant as ill. When the official came to Jesus and told him about his ill servant, Jesus wanted to follow the official home to heal his servant, but the Roman official said to Jesus,
“Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, only say a word and my servant shall be healed.”
What a faith!
Do you have faith in the word of God?
Do you believe that Jesus can heal you?
3. SURRENDER TO THE POWER AND WILL OF GOD:
Before you receive divine gifts like healing and favour, you must first surrender to the power and will of God. In Luke, our mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary was favoured by God because she was submissive to the power and will of God.
Will you allow God’s will to be accomplished in your life?
4. RUN AWAY FROM BAD HABITS AND IMMORALITY:
Bad habits like smoking, drug abuse, drunkenness, stealing etc. are the causes of physical diseases. Immoral lives such as fornication, prostitution, homosexuality, lesbianism, etc. causes both spiritual and physical sicknesses.
Another dangerous habit is gluttony. Desist from gluttony because, it has led to the death of many people. Don’t eat everything that comes your way. It is sin.
If you adhere to these points, our Lord Jesus Christ will surely heal you. Are you ready to be healed!
A HEALING PRAYER
(Recite this prayer with deep faith)
Lord Jesus Christ, I confess my sins and accept that I am a sinner. I ask for your forgiveness and mercy. Heal me of my diseases, both spiritual and physical. Deliver me from satanic attacks. I claim total healing for myself today – Amen.
