And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity. (Isaiah 33:24 KJV)
Zion is referred to as the city of God through the word of God. We can safely say it is the presence of God where those that are born again must dwell in! It is important to meditate on that word ‘dwell’ it means to stay and not go in and out. This word is also used in Psalm 91:1.
It will be important to briefly look at the origin of sickness and disease. It is of the devil and not from God no matter the name it is given. When God created Adam and Eve, there was no sickness in Eden until the deception by the devil. This caused sin to enter the world and of course it came with its brothers and cousins and sickness and disease are part of it. God had a plan in place and that was to send the Messiah, His only begotten son, Jesus. From the time He begins His ministry He shows us what he came for! He healed the sick and cast out demons. Every case presented before Him, he healed and delivered them all.
When you come into the confines of the kingdom of God (the city of Zion), none of the inhabitants there should say I am sick! The people there shall be forgiven of their iniquity. I want you to notice these two benefits, it’s not just the forgiveness of sin but also the healing of disease. God wants you whole spirit, soul and body! It is never His desire for you to be in pain just as He does not want you to be carrying sin. Isaiah 53 shows us that Jesus bore our sin and our sickness on the cross. The price can not be paid twice. You should not accept disease. It is not from God! Resist the devil and he will flee.
John 10:10 shows us exactly how things are, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” The thief is the devil, his mission is to kill, steal and destroy. He uses different means like accidents and diseases but look at the second part defining why Christ came. “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Amplified version says, “to the full till it overflows.” There are many beliefs out there on this subject but I want you to know God wants you in perfect health physically just as he wants you in perfect health spiritually! Don’t give ear to contrary words or doctrines.
Today, you can claim your healing! God already gave it but the enemy has been using deception to keep that sickness on you. I pray for you that the Holy Spirit will open the eyes of your understanding to see the grace that has been made available for you. Christ carried your sin and your disease.
Satan I refuse to accept your strategies of deception and your sickness and disease on me. I loose myself from your bonds in the name of Jesus. The blood of Jesus that was presented in the Holy of holies got rid of my sin and my disease. When He was on the cross I was crucified with Him, when He was buried I was buried with Him, when He rose from the dead I was resurrected with Him. Today I am seated with Him in the heavenly places. I am an inhabitant of Zion, the city of God.
