“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).
Who anointed Jesus of Nazareth? God did! And Jesus said, “The Father that dwells in me, he does the works” (John 14:10).
How did God do these works of healings through Jesus? By anointing Jesus with the Holy Spirit and with healing power.
What did Jesus do with the anointing that God anointed Him with? He went about doing good! And what was the good Jesus did? Healing!
Therefore, it was actually God healing the people when Jesus healed them, because it was God who had anointed Jesus. God is in the healing business! He’s not in the sickness business!
Who was it Jesus healed? All that were oppressed of the Devil. All! Everyone healed under the ministry of Jesus were oppressed of the Devil. (This doesn’t mean that everyone had an evil spirit, but it does mean that the Devil is behind all sickness.)
Yet to hear some people talk – even ministers – they would lead you to believe that God and the Devil had swapped jobs in the last 2000 years, and God is putting sickness on people, and the Devil is healing them. But no! The Devil is the same Devil he has always been. And God is the same God!
Confession: Satan is the oppressor, not God. Jesus is the Deliverer!
