TEXT: 1TIMOTHY 4: 1, 3- 5
1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
Key verse: Proverbs 17: 22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine:
This tells us that medicines do good. The scriptures show that medicines do good to
mankind. Isaiah 5:20 20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put
darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for
bitter! It is not out of place in the Scripture to say; my son, take medicine, for
medicine is good, just as the Scripture also says, my son, eat thou honey, for honey
is good. If the Bible calls honey a good thing and somebody comes and forbids the
eating of honey; saying do not eat honey, the same Bible says, woe to that man. The
person who says, do not eat honey, it is evil, is saying, that which God says is good
is not really good, but evil. That was what Satan told Eve and Adam in the garden
to destroy them. Such a person is satanic. Hence, churches that preach against the
use of medicines by the sick are doing great evil.
The devil interferes a lot among mankind to turn them off from that which is good
by naming it evil, especially in the church, to the point that some creation of God,
beautiful as it is, given for human beneﬁt, Satan would come and say they are evil;
or he passes through some preachers, some religious men, to lay a bad name on a
good thing. Medicine has suffered much attacks. Many people have come up to say
it is a sin to take medicine, or in fact, that those people that take medicine will go to
hell because it shows they do not have faith in Jesus. That is a doctrine of the devil.
The scripture says that medicine is good. The Bible says that God created all things
good for our use with prayer and thanksgiving. He created it to be received by
believers. They that believe and know the truth receive it with thanksgiving. Your
prayer over it sanctiﬁes and puriﬁes it. As you use it, bless God and be happy for His
wisdom. Maybe there are people that up till now do not use handset, because when
mobile phones came newly, some people said it must have something to do with
Satan: “How can you call somebody far away and speak to him unconnected?”
Thought for the day: People always misinterpret the good works of God.
Song for the day: How excellent is Your name, O Lord
Bible reading for the day: Ezekiel 34-35; 1 Peter 2
