Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Sickness comes from Satan. It doesn’t come from God. Sometimes, if you find out where something comes from, you won’t be so quick to accept it or acknowledge it. Not only that, but I remember that my mother taught me as a little boy that it was wrong to have something that belonged to someone else.
I remember once when I was eight years old, and wanted to go up the street to play with my cousin. It was just a couple of blocks, and my cousin lived next door to a man who had some prize peach trees in his backyard. People would come from several counties to see his peach trees.
Well, my cousin and I climbed up a ladder to get on top of a tool shed, which was built right up against his fence. Some of the limbs on one of the peach trees were hanging over the fence. They weren’t touching the shed, but when we got up on the shed, the peaches were right there.
Now I didn’t dare pick a peach because Momma told me to leave these peach trees alone. But my cousin picked one. He ate half of it and then offered the other half to me. I thought, I didn’t get it; my cousin did. Maybe it would be all right to eat it. I shouldn’t have done it, but I reasoned it all out and decided to eat half the peach even though it didn’t belong to me.
Confession Sickness doesn’t come from God. Sickness and disease belong to the devil. Therefore, I do not accept sickness and disease in my body.
