Pastor Chris Oyakhilome D.Sc D.D
Where did sickness come from? Did God create sickness? Did He create disease germs? After all some people say He created all things. So many people have asked these questions about God, and a lot of Christians believe that God punishes and corrects with sickness.
The most important thing to understand is this, God wants you well and in good health, and He isn’t the originator of sickness James 1:17, “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.” Only good and perfect gifts come from God. Sickness is not a good gift, just as lack is not a good gift. Sickness destroys and cripples. God wouldn’t do that to any of His children. Sickness is incipient death. And the Bible calls death ‘an enemy’ (1 Corinthians 15:26). God would not punish His children with the tool of the enemy. Sickness has ruined many families, it drained their entire livelihood until they became poor, just like the woman with the issue of blood (Matthew 9:20). God wouldn’t give His children such ‘gifts.’ I wish you would know the heart of God when death seizes upon a family.
