And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
THE TITLE of this post is tautological! This is because Satan and sickness are the same. You can't have sickness without Satan. Neither can you have Satan without sickness. But I had to use it as it is, so as to get your attention.
Here the Master gives authority to His apostles and by extension to us to confront demons. He gave YOU authority against unclean spirits. To cast them out! And then to heal ALL manner of sickness and disease.
This is so paramount in the life and ministry of every child of God.
The Master has set the church against evil spirits. He has set the church against sickness and disease. He has set the church against every thing Satan and his cohorts represent.
He has given you the power of attorney to use His matchless Name and confront this aliens called evil spirits, with their attendant sicknesses and diseases.
It is a pity that many of God's children shy away from confronting unclean spirits and healing the sick and diseased.
The Master is counting on every child of God to get involved in bringing hope and freedom to bound and hopeless humanity. Everywhere you look, you see a rendezvous of broken humanity. And yet you have SOMETHING like Peter and John had at the gate called Beautiful...The Name of Jesus.
With that Name, you are absolutely matchless in confronting unclean spirits and healing the sick and diseased.
You must know that the Name is above every other name. And that at the mention of that glorious Name, every knee should bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
You are the light of the world. You have all it takes to shine. You are the hope of broken hopeless humanity.
The Master said, you shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.
You have SOMETHING to offer.
Now go and confront unclean spirits. Hunt for the oppressed, obsessed and possessed of unclean spirits, and the sick and diseased.
You are their only hope of freedom.
God can't do this. You are His hands and His voice!
As you go, you will not fail. Use the Name with authority and boldness fearing nothing. And you will be amazed at the miracles that will be wrought by your hands.
God bless you richly.
