Topic: Delivered from the Spirit of Infirmity
Luke 13:10-17; Luke 4:1-19
20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
A woman who encountered Jesus Christ had a physical condition caused by a spirit of infirmity (Luke 13:11). The condition was not attributed to physical injury or bacterial infection. A spirit or demon of infirmity incapacitated her for eighteen years.
Jesus Christ healed the apostle Peter’s mother-in-law by touching her hand and making the fever leave her. When Jesus Christ touched her hand, the spirit of fever was immediately cast out. After that episode, people possessed by devils were brought to Jesus who cast them out and healed the people (Matthew 8:14-17). Demonisation and disease are linked – demons cause diseases.
Believers must be discerning enough to see that demons do cause diseases. We are becoming so worldly in these modern times that we attribute diseases to physical causes, never to spiritual ones. The woman with the spirit of infirmity was not cured by a medical doctor or psychologist, but by Jesus Christ who used the power of the Holy Ghost to set her free.
Pray for anyone plagued by the spirit of infirmity, and cast it out in the name of Jesus Christ.
