TEXT: MATTHEW 12:22-28
22Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.23And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?24But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.25And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:26And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?27And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.28But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
Key verse: Psalms 24: 1
The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
Do you see God in the knowledge of life; in the beneﬁcial knowledge of life? Do you know that Satan hates everything that is good? He is never for the beneﬁt of mankind. He does not do anything that is good, except he will use it as a bait. He will use a good thing which is from God and put his evil in it. But for good, good does not come from Satan. Therefore, do not always attribute every good thing that goes on in this life to Satan. Even among unbelievers, the God that made them wants them to be healthy. If they die, how would they hear the gospel? How would they hear the message? Does not the Bible say that it is not the will of God that any man should perish but that all should come to the knowledge of God and repentance? Would not God therefore do all that is required to keep them alive until they can have opportunity to come to repentance? So why do you think that the people among them who are treating them in their sicknesses and diseases are all demonic? Demonism and curative medicine are two different things. Do not listen to ignorant men and church leaders.
Demonism and medicine are separate. A man that handles good medicine may be demonic and may or may not apply his demonism on his treatment. Good medicine is a natural formula. He can only bring his demonism into it to deﬁle mankind. If he says, “okay, before I do this for you, you will sacriﬁce this; you must do this or that; when you are cooking this medicine, sprinkle the blood of animals on that stone. Do not take ﬁrewood from one side to another'. That is demonism. All those things are not part of what will bring cure. He is using the knowledge of medical cure to bring man into bondage – to Satan. Demonism and medicine are two separate things; be it herbal medicine or conventional medicine. Be it food supplements or drugs, separate them from demonism. Do not follow those who call them products of Satan.
Thought for the day: Medicines; herbal or conventional give health and strength.
Song for the day: God is good, He has done me well, O my soul…
Bible reading for the day: Job 31-32; Acts 13:1-23
