Are we Chastened by God?
Are we Chastened by God with sickness and disease? If disease does not come from God, then what do you think the answer is? Are you basing not be healed because of a belief upon the Scripture found in Hebrews 12:6 — For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
We serve a loving Father does not punish His child more severely than needed for that child’s crime or misbehavior. Even though such sickness may come as penalty for sin, it is not necessary for any Christian to remain sick. God does not allow accidents to keep you bound in a broken body.
God has provided repentance for salvation but staying saved, and qualify for all God’s blessings.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9. That means cleans our bodies from sin and remove the disease.
Chastened by God with Disease?
Yes, disease comes from sin and Satan is the executor of the Law. It comes on us but we have the power to go to the Lord and repent and be cleansed of all unrighteousness.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever. He bath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. Psalms 103:8-10.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever. Heb. 13:8. Then it is inconceivable that while He was here on earth He glorified the Father by healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people, Matt. 4:23,
Did God Chastise Job!
Some of you believe Job chastised for no reason and was found without sin. The truth is no man is perfect but we can be righteous in the Lord. Lets look at Job and his boils.
Job’s fear of God was not the only fear. He admitted and cried out, The thing which I GREATLY FEARED is come upon me. Job 3:25.
Fear is not faith but the opposite of God. Fear is a character of the flesh and the kingdom of darkness. Faith is the character of God. Job had fear over his children, who were sinning, and he was doing sacrifices for them to cover their sin instead of correcting his children or his scorning wife.
Satan saw it as a hedge round about Job, through which he could not penetrate, but fear, being opposed to faith, makes an opening in the hedge through which Satan may enter.
God did not afflict Job. Job. 2:7: –Satan . . . smote Job with sore boils. Even this he could not do without God’s permission.
In his anguish he cried, Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: Job 13:15. God could not disregard such faith as that. Immediately God began to work toward Job’s deliverance. Job had opportunity to compare his righteousness with his maker and saw where he lacked.
He approached God, not in a spirit of self-righteousness, but in true humility and repentance (Job 42:6) with faith. After repenting to God, the Lord restored all his former glory and blessed with even more than he had at the beginning.
When difficult issues happen such as sickness and disease, it is to work out the flesh out of our lives. Again, Satan is the executioner of the law.
Side note: Almost all skin diseases are directly related to stress, anxiety, worry, etc.
