God Loves You and Will Deliver

Sickness and disease have been a bane to the existence of Christians and God’s people since Genesis.
This has been troublesome for Christians because of wrong teaching by the Christian leadership. The
main line doctrine of these so-called leaders is that “everything happens for a purpose” and “God uses
sickness to test you or to make you stronger.” What they are implying is that God makes a person sick
for a reason or that God causes a person to be sick. Just the thought of such blasphemous teaching hurts
me to the core. It makes me want to shout from the tallest buildings and highest mountain tops “THIS IS
That is right! You heard me! God will deliver you.
Let me start out by saying that God NEVER causes sickness, disease or death!
James 1:16-17 (KJV)
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with
whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
God only knows how to give good AND it says that in God there is no variableness nor shadow of
turning. That means that God does not change his mind. That, also, means that what God does for one
person He has to do for anyone that meet the same criteria. If God healed one Christian ever, which we
know he did by the bucket full in the Book of Acts, He has too for YOU! And, just in case you think you
are not good enough or that God has higher regard for some look at Acts 10:34.
Acts 10:34 (KJV)
34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of
1 John 1:5 (KJV)
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light,
and in him is no darkness at all.
God is not only the Father of lights, He IS light and there is no evil,no darkness, no ill will to the
So, we have established that God wouldn’t cause sickness, so, let’s look at Jesus Christ.
Luke 4:17-19 (KJV)
17 And there was delivered unto him (Jesus Christ) the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had
opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he
hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight tothe blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
John 4:34 (KJV)
34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
John 6:38-40 (KJV)
38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose
nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may
have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
3 John 1:2 (KJV)
2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul
Neither God nor Jesus Christ want you to be sick. As a matter of fact even Jesus Christ’s Apostles were
told to deliver people from sickness.
Matthew 10:7-8 (KJV)
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
We have established that neither God or Jesus Christ ever brought sickness upon anybody. As a matter
of fact, God loves you with a deep and ever abiding love. Why would he ever want to harm any of His
children? That is what you are! When you are a Christian you are God’s child (I John 3:2.) He doesn’t!
What God gives, as I mentioned before, is GOOD.
So, who does cause sickness. Notice I say “who” and not “what.” Who causes the captivity that Jesus
Christ came to deliver people from? He is the fallen angel of Isaiah fourteen, the Serpent of Genesis
chapter three, the Anti-Christ of I John two and father of lies in John 8:44. He is the Devil.
To say that God causes sickness is a great lie and those who propound it are messengers of the Devil!
Sickness is death in part or in whole and the Devil, not God, has the power of death.
Hebrews 2:14 (KJV)
14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he (Jesus Christ) also
himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the
power of death, that is, the devil;
Wow,, wow, wow! What are we going to do now! The lines of demarcation are set! God is
voting FOR you and the Devil, our adversary, is voting against you! How you vote will
determine the outcome! That is right, what you decide to believe will be your deliverance or it
will be your continued suffering!Listen, I know as a minister of reconciliation that when a person is sick they need love more than
anything. But, I am not there to put my arms around you and to comfort you. I can’t speak tender
words of comfort. So, I am doing the best I know how and that is to give you the TRUTH and let
you, for once in your life, make that decision. “Do I believe the purity of God’s matchless divine
Word or what the World has to say. Do I want to be whole or not!”
The first step in your deliverance is found in Romans 10:9,10.
Romans 10:9-10 (KJV)
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath
raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto
This is the key that unlocks the door to all of God’s promises. Over eight hundred promises to
the believer! Promises of health, children, long life and so much more are yours for the taking.
The word “saved” in verse nine is the Greek word “sozo” which means to be made whole,
complete in every aspect of your life! At the time of the new birth, the spiritual birth, at the time
you do what it says in Romans 10:9,10 God gives us EVERYTHING, that we will ever need. It
is up to us to so change our minds so that we will get our deliverance in the physical realm. We
do this by literally believing the promises in God’s Word. You must so renew your mind that you
literally believe God’s Word.
Romans 12:2 (KJV)
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may
prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
God will deliver each and every one of us just like He did in the Gospels and in the Book of Acts
if we believe. Oh, you say, but, I have _________ how is God going to deliver me? That is
God’s choice your choice is to believe Him when He says he will heal you when He says he will
deliver you.
1 Peter 2:24 (KJV)
24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live
unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
John 15:16 (KJV)
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth
fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may
give it you.
John 16:23 (KJV)
23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask
the Father in my name, he will give it you.1 Peter 5:7 (KJV)
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Hebrews 4:14-16 (KJV)
14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let
us hold fast our confession.
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in
all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to
help in time of need.
Matthew 9:20-22 (KJV)
20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and
touched the hem of his garment:
21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith
hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
Notice that this woman never gave up! Discouragement is sin. Get the promise that you want to
claim and repeat it over and over again until you start to believe it. Keep the image of your
deliverance formost in your mind and don’t let anything take precedence over it.
James 1:6-8 (KJV)
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the
wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and
that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
I leave you with two records of people who have believed and gotten their deliverance.
Acts 3:1-8 (KJV)
1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth
2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate
of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;
3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.
4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.
6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of
Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones
received strength.8 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and
leaping, and praising God.
Matthew 15:30-31 (KJV)
30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed,
and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them:
31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole,
the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.
Matthew 15:22-28 (KJV)
22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have
mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for
she crieth after us.
24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.
27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.
28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt.
And her daughter was made whole from that very hour
