SIN, SICKNESS AND POVERTY
The major instruments the devil uses to fight man.
He that sinneth is of the devil (1John 3:8) Upon all mess that sin has done to man, man is still comiting sin.
EFFECTS OF SIN ON MAN
1. Sin is a reproach ( Proverb 14:34)
2. Sin brings shame and judgement ( Adam Genesis 3:9-10)
3. Sin brings fear ( Isaiah 33:14)
4. Sin brings defeat: E.g Achan ( Joshua 7: 1-20)
5. Sin leads to death. The soul that sinneth shall die (Ezekiel 18:4)( Romans 6:23)
The state of being ill or diseased. It is never the will of God that any should be sick and sickness is not of God But of the devil. The devil brought sickness to discomfort, weaken and to make man suffer in life so that man will hav a second thought about life and be discouraged forgeting that God made the earth to be enjoyed by man. The devil uses this weapon to fight against Christians so that they will think that there is no God and begin to question God and even seek for solution wrongly.
But thanks be to God that He is still the healer(Exodus 23:25) and
CHRIST has given us the power to Dominate sickness ( Matthew 10:1 Mark 3:15)
* You ar the sons and daughters of the most High God never entertain sickness becos its not ur potion.
* Never u have the mindset that it is not possible to live a healthy life, my dear its possible, thats your inheritance i CHRIST if u believe.
CHRIST has overcome sickness, therefore sickness has no power over u, Cast out sickness, heal the sick and have positive confession.
Poverty is a state of being poor, want or scarcity. Poverty is not from GOD it is from the devil, to frustrate and make human being to suffer.
** The devil uses this tool to fight against Christians to the extent that even some Christians are victims of this and some says it is the will of God. No sir/ma poverty is not the will of God for ur life.
JESUS CHRIST was made poor for u to be rich (2CORINTHIANS 8:9)
** God never want His children to be poor at all. Looking at all the people God used in the Bible, God blessed all with riches and wealth.
**ABRAHAM was not a poor man but was rich in cattles, silver and gold (Genesis 13:2) Abraham even rejected the gift of the king of Sodom before he will say that he has made him rich ( Genesis 14:23)
** ISAAC was not poor, God blessed him that he was richer and greater than the whole land/nation. ( Genesis 26:12)
** JOB the upright man was not poor, in his righteous/holy life he was still a rich man, greatest man in the East (Job 1:3)
** Even the Prophets that God used were not poor, for they command and make things happen.
*** Oooh Our Lord Jesus came to the earth, he was not poor and all His disciples were not poor, they never suffered from poverty instead they delivered people from poverty and minister d word to them.
** Let me shock you with this, May be u don’t know that JOSEPH OF ARIMATHAEA who took the body of JESUS for burial was a rich and honourable man and also a disciple of JESUS ( Matthew 27;57, Mark 15:43). And so many others.
NOTE: Being a Christian does not make u poor and Christianity is not for the poor but poor people are still welcomed that God can change their state.
You can make wealth and be wealthy even as u are a Christian and I will tell you now that Christians are to be the wealthiest on earth because that is the purpose of God for them on earth.
Rise up now, reject poverty and live in God’s riches for the Blessings of God maketh rich and added no sorrow ( Proverb 10:22) ( Psalm 112:1–3)
When you know this you will understand that they are not the will of God for.
God bless you.
