Sickness is evil. . .it is not of God.

We never see God introduce it in the Bible.  We only see it show up after Satan comes into the picture.

There are still some well-meaning Christians who feel healing was only around when Jesus was on earth but the scripture does not support this claim. We will be backing this up in just a moment but first… 

The only things we see come from God are good gifts. . .advantageous gifts.

James 1:17 says:

"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."

According to Strong’s Concordance the Greek word for good is G18 and it means:

“of good constitution or nature; useful, salutary; good, pleasant, agreeable, joyful, happy, excellent, distinguished”

Also, according to Strong’s Concordance the Greek word for gift is G1394 and it means:

“giving, gift”

James 2:17 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“So also faith, if it does not have works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead).”

Now listen to the words of James 2:17 this time in God’s Word Translation which says the verse this way:

“In the same way, faith by itself is dead if it doesn’t cause you to do any good things.”

Faith destroys fear. . .crushes doubt. . .conquers the unknown. . .inspires others. . .and makes us victorious in all our hands find to do.

If we want to do more than we’ve done. . .be more than we’ve been. . .then we need to step out in faith … as long as it lines up with His Word.

God’s Word tells us what to do. . .if we take a calculated risk and fail to succeed.

Proverbs 24:16 in the New Living Translation says:

“The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again.  But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked.”

I’ve found that scripturally-directed action. . .even though it appears risky in the natural. . .produces successful results.  Sometimes those results are immediate other times they’re progressive . . .as a result of the actions taken.
