1 Corinthians 15:26,27 John 16:33
In His Original Creation, There Was No Sickness
The third reason we are sure it’s God’s will for all to be healed today is because of the original creation.
As we continue looking at reasons we are sure it is God’s will to heal, you may find that you have heard some of these things before. But read them like you have never heard them. You have probably eaten steak and potatoes before, but you’re not going in the strength of a steak and potato that you ate in 1969. If some people ate their physical food like they hear the Word of God, they would have starved to death a long time ago.
It would be like taking a tray to the cafeteria, setting things on it, and saying, “Oh, salad–I had that in 1972. Oh, beans—I had them in 1965.”
If you’re not going to eat the same things you’ve eaten before, you’re going to starve. Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4) Do you know why you’re supposed to hear the same thing again? It feeds your spirit, and as you grow, you get more out of it than you did the last time. As you grow and develop, you see things you didn’t see in a verse before. So read these things like you haven’t heard them before, because in truth, there are things here we’ve not seen before. If you have heard them before, you still need to be fed on them. You need to feed your spirit. It feeds you even more than you realize, because there are things on a level that’s above and beyond your conscience.
Genesis one is the beginning of what we know about. The Bible says in Genesis 1:3-4, “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good…”
Verse 10 says, “And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called the Seas: and God saw that it was good.”
Verse 18 says that He gave these lights “…to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.”
Verse 21 says, “And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
Are you seeing a recurring theme here? God made something, and what? It was good. He made something else, and it was good. Then He made some more things, and they were good. Verse 25 says, “And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
God made man, and then verse 28 says, “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over [it].” Verse 29 says, “And God said, Behold, I have given you [seed]…” and in verse 31 it says, “And God
saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
If you look up the word translated “very,” it is the word for “mighty.” So, I guess we’re accurate in the southern United States when we say, “That was mighty good.” We’re correct with the original Hebrew language. “Mighty” meaning “powerful good,” which is another way of saying “very.” “Very” is great, but I like “mighty.” It might even be more accurate. “Mighty good.”
God saw everything that He made, and it was mighty good. How about God? God is mighty. He’s powerful good. He is mighty good, and everything He made was good. When did He make the bad things? When did God create cancer? On the first day? On the third day? When did God create AIDS? On what day? What part of the creation? When did that come into being during His creation? First, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth day? On what day did He create arthritis? He didn’t! Sickness and disease are not part of God’s original creation. You can’t look at cancer and say, “Behold, it is very good.” You can’t look at AIDS, abscesses, tumors, growths, and inflammation, and say,
“Behold, those tumors are very good. Behold, those abscesses and growths are mighty good.” No. They are not good. Sickness is not good.
I know this sounds simplistic, but there are still millions of Christians who will tell you, “Well, maybe God had some kind of purpose in it. I know it’s an awful thing, but really, I think maybe it was a blessing in disguise.”
It’s either good or it’s bad, and God did not confuse us. Everything that God made was mighty good—mighty fine and mighty good. Everything was good, including Adam and Eve. Do you believe Adam was “defect-free”? Eve was “deformity-free”? They had no flaws or deformities. They had no disease in them at all. They were brilliant. They were magnificent, weren’t they? Their bodies were perfect, and their minds were amazing. They talked with God in the afternoon about things He wanted to talk about, and they understood them.
I’m sorry, but I don’t accept the version of them sitting in a cave naked going, “Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.” I don’t believe it. There may be some people who fell to near animalistic states centuries after creation, but no, Adam and Eve were brilliant and perfect. In their brilliant state, if you would have told them, “I have a headache,” they would have looked at you puzzled and said, “A what?”
“A headache. I have a headache, a migraine.” “A what? What is that?”
“My head hurts. It’s pounding.”
They’d look at you like… “What?” They had nothing with which to reference it. Nothing. They didn’t know what it was like to have an “off” day. “I just feel a little off today. I don’t know… I’m a little bit slow, a little bit weak.”
They wouldn’t even understand what you were talking about, because when God made them, He made them perfect, whole, and strong. If disease pleased the Father, He would have made them with diseases. If deformities and sickness was His will, He would have created Adam and Eve with them built right in from the start. Anything that came along later, because of sin, death, and curse, is not an improvement on God’s original creation, and it is not good.
God hates sickness. That’s a big statement, but I want you to think about it now. He hates sin, and death is His enemy. You hear some preachers standing over caskets talking about how God took this one in death and healed them through death because He loved them and wanted them to be with Him more than anyone else. They say that talking about a 20-year-old who died in a car crash.
Death is the enemy of God. First Corinthians 15:26-27 says that death is the last enemy that shall be put under foot. It was not a part of His original creation. When God created everything, nothing died. Nothing. Flowers didn’t die. Trees didn’t die. Animals didn’t die, and men and women did not die.
We need to be reminded of this. Everything that you and I have known since we came into this world is warped. It’s twisted. It’s distorted from the way God made it. Even in its fallen condition, this planet is amazing, but we need to remind ourselves that it’s messed up. The Bible says that it is groaning and travailing. (Romans 8:22) Why? It’s dying. The planet is dying just like we are. It’s been cursed. That’s why the plates are shifting, causing volcanic eruptions and hurricanes. This is not the will of God. This is not what God created; it’s been messed up. It’s off. Why? Sin messed it all up.
Oh, but He’s going to fix it. He already has the plan in operation. It’s just a matter of time.
What we need to know right here and now in this life, though, is what is good and what is evil, what is of God and what is not of God. We need to know what we are to receive and bear patiently, and what we are to resist with everything that is in us. Christians have been lied to because they’ve been told from pulpits that God is teaching them something through sickness. God sent it on them to develop some kind of piety or some kind of spirituality, and they’re supposed to bear it with meekness and patience. It’s a lie. Sickness is evil. I’m going to prove it to you, if you’ll receive scriptures.
If God had wanted man sick, He would have created man that way. On what day did God create sickness and disease? He didn’t. Sickness is not a part of God’s original creation. God created things according to His perfect will, and that’s one reason we know it’s not God’s will for us to be sick.
In His Original Creation, There Was No Sickness
