KEY SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 12:2. Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
We continue with our study on the counterfeiting of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The gift of healing is one gift that Satan has counterfeited so much. The danger with this one is that anyone who seeks healing from a false or demonic healer is contaminated with the devil or demons. Sicknesses can be very distressing so anyone in a desperate condition is tempted to go anywhere that promises relief.
We see a lot of these demonic healers all over. They even advertise their activities both on print an audio-visual media. They put up their posters and signboards throughout the nation. Many people including some Christians patronise these healers. I wish to state that there are a number of herbal medicine practitioners that have no relationship with any occult (hidden) powers. They have studied the practice and use them without any rituals to heal. Christians, don’t seek healing from fetishes or Mallams. These are clear demonic agents, who would get you filled with demons.
I read about a cult in the Philippines that perform surgery without a knife. They do surgery without any incisions on the body, with just their fingers. These healers have been patronised by swarms of people from England, Canada, Australia, the United States of America and many others who travel to the Philippines for treatment.
There is a story of a brother of a medical Doctor who claims his gallstones were removed without any incisions made, nor leaving any scar. When this doctor asked his brother for an X-ray examination, the results showed that the gallstones were still there.
Most of these demonic healing cults only deceive their patrons. There are cases of people who go with a kind of condition, I will call it problem A,only to find out that problem A is no more there but he now has problem B. The truth is that they do not give permanent and lasting healing Jesus heals excellently. There are countless cases of both terminal and demonic diseases that have been completely wiped away by the power of God. Medical reports always prove the condition is gone. A pregnant woman who was healed from ovarian cyst in one of our meetings was confirmed healed and is still well. God performs it totally.
Father, I pray for all Christians to know and trust you when suffering from some ailment so they would not visit fetish and occultist homes for help.
2 Chronicles 16:12 ” And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians”.
1 John 4:1.” Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world”.
