Understanding our right to health in redemption

Welcome to another exciting week! I hope you were blessed by last week teaching.


Today, we shall focus on: Understanding Our Right to Health in Redemption! From scriptures, we discover that God entered into covenant relationships with His people as recorded in the Old Testament.


One of such covenants is that of good health.


As it is written: And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee (Exodus 23:25).


This connotes that as long as we are in God’s service; sickness, disease, affliction and any such evil shall not and cannot have dominion over us.


However, it takes a regenerated heart to serve God. Thus, let’s briefly consider how sicknesses and diseases came into the world.


How did Sickness enter into the World?


• Through sin: There was no sickness in the world until Adam sinned. Before this time, Adam was in a state of perfect and absolute health. He did not know sickness.


He was always strong, hale and hearty. There was no symptom of headache or fever. It was when he sinned that sickness came in.


An unregenerated man is not entitled to divine health. The Bible says: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).


Man cannot enjoy divine health except the sin problem is dealt with. There is no way a man that is sin-ridden can enjoy divine health.


He has to first submit himself to Jesus Christ, then he will have access to God’s provision of divine health (Colossians 1:13).


• Through the curse of the law: In Deuteronomy 28, from verse 15, the curses of the law are clearly outlined.


The truth is that every form of sickness comes under the curse of the law but thanks to God that one of the things Jesus dealt with on the cross is the curse of the law.


For it is written: Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree (Galatians 3:13).



The reason Jesus went to the cross was to avert all curses of the law and sickness is one of them.


Thus, it is time to react violently against sickness.


• Through satan: It has always been the devil who afflicts people with sickness. In Job 2:7, the Bible records that satan smote Job: So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.


In the new testament, Jesus talked of a woman who had been bound by satan: 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)?


Jesus truly recognised that satan is in active partnership with sickness. But I have good news for you.


The devil is no longer a problem by virtue of the victory of Christ on the cross; we are more than a conqueror over sin, sickness and the devil himself.
