What is God’s View on Health?

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” (3 John 1:2)

Understanding God’s Character and Will

To understand God’s position on health in general we must first know his character and will. It is evident in scripture that God made all things very good (Genesis 1:31).  Disease, curses, and death only came into the world become Adam and Eve sinned (Romans 5:12). Jesus came into the world as the image of God to redeem us from the curse of the law and so the will of God is clear with the life of Christ. Jesus came to give an abundant life while the devil came to steal, kill and destroy.

God’s Son The Christ

God anointed Jesus with the Holy Ghost and with power he healed all that were oppressed of the devil (Acts 10:38). Please note that Jesus healed all that were oppressed. God’s will is for his people to be free from all types of oppression. Are you convinced of this? We see in scripture Jesus cast out spirits of infirmities, healed the deaf, blind and lame. When we receive Christ the Spirit of God comes to dwell within us. We then have the power and the authority to do just as Jesus did (John 14:12). We are a part of Christ’s body here on Earth. As so, we are healing to the sick and liberty to the captive.

The Solution to Every Health Problem

The solution to every health problem is seeking the Kingdom of God (Matt 6:33). God, as a Father wants his children to lack nothing. What he asks is for his children to focus on him and not the things of this world. Focus on seeking him and his kingdom. Remember that God is outside of time, matter and space, he doesn’t have limitations. The answer to a headache, cancer, or the cold is the kingdom. It is the King’s influence invading your circumstance by his authority and power. You can identify the problem by knowing the solution. For example: if you take a Tylenol you probably have a headache; if you take chemotherapy you probably have cancer, and if you take insulin you probably have diabetes.

When King Jesus first came to earth one of his first statements as he started his ministry was “Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” The kingdom is the solution to all of man’s problems that came from what man lost in the garden of Eden. Jesus Christ declared the solution, repent ye, change your mind for the kingdom of God is here. Read other blog posts to learn how to access the Kingdom of God.
