"How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power; who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him" (Acts 10:38 KJV).

Well, here's another reason why you have to know healing is God's will for you. Sickness is the result of Satan's work. Sickness came when he introduced sin into this world. Jesus was manifested to destroy Satan's work and heal all who were oppressed as Acts 10:38 tells us.

"All" pretty much covers everybody, doesn't it? How many are left after all? None.

That means nobody is left. That means Jesus came to heal you. He had the Holy Ghost and power to heal you. Not just your neighbor, not just your friend, not just the pastor, but He came to heal you, He came to heal me. He came to heal you because you're an "all." "...Healing all that were oppressed of the devil.

That should tell you what sickness and disease is; it's oppression. God was with Jesus, so He came to heal all that were oppressed of the devil. Every single one of them. That means you. That means me. That means all of us who will receive and accept the Word, and have received and accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Glory to God!

Hebrews chapter two makes it even more clear when it explains how I am healed from the crown of my head to the very soles of my feet. Every organ, every tissue, every blood vessel, every corpuscle, every sinew, every cell, every brain cell, every molecule, glory to God, every endorphin, everything in my body is healed.

You must subject yourself to God's Word. God's Word said I am healed from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet. That means my entire body. But you must conform to the Word of God. You must bow down to what God said. No weapon formed against me shall prosper.

Everything that comes against me, I condemn. That's my heritage. I'm a servant of the Lord. I'm in right standing with God. Healing belongs to me in Jesus' name. Body, you will cooperate.

Hebrews 2:14: "for as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood...." He took flesh and blood. Why? That through death he might destroy him that had the power of the death—that's the devil. I mean, Jesus put on a flesh and blood body like mine and yours. He walked this earth for one reason. He wanted to destroy the one who was destroying us. We were being destroyed, but He destroyed the destroyer!

One of the works of the devil is sickness. But 1 John 3 says that the Son of God was manifest for this purpose—to destroy the works of the devil. You should know all sickness is the result of Satan's work, and Jesus came to destroy and render inoperative that power. But you have to stand for it. It's available, but you've got to stand for it.
