Does God Punish People With Sickness Sometimes When They Commit Disgusting Sins? - What I Learned From Kenneth & Gloria Copeland's Daily Devotional For Today - 16th January 2017 - A Review By A.B.King



Matthew 10:7-8 KJV
And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. [8] Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.


     In today's devotional, Pastor Kenneth Copeland stressed that diseases do not come from God.
     This is something that many people have once believed and even preached but started to get debunked many many years ago in the tent meeting days of Graham, Oral Roberts, T.L & Daisy Osborne, Kathryn Kulman and all the great healing ministers of that era.
      Sadly, there are still people who believe today that sickness is from God.
     Well, it isn't.
    
     Although it wasn't talked about in today's devotional. Sometimes sicknesses and diseases have been seen as punishment from God especially in the Old Testament.
     However, the truth is it is disobedience to God that brought their sickness or disease in those cases, not God. I hope you can understand the difference. It is their disobedience that gave them the disease not God.

    Note that disobedience to God is not the cause of all diseases, but sometimes it is the cause. And the array of diseases is not limited to certain diseases (like leprosy was normally the case in the Old Testament). It could be any disease.


    It is written:

Ecclesiastes 10:8 KJV
He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.


    So sin is an invitation for Satan to mess around with your life, and Satan might bring a few diseases as he comes along.
    

My Prayer For You:

   I pray that you stay away from sin, and that if you sin you don't drown yourself in guilt but ask God for forgiveness knowing he is a loving and forgiving God. However, I also pray that you do not try to take advantage of God's forgiving nature because such tomfoolery always ends badly.

Matthew 9:18-26

Rather Than Hate The Rich, Become Rich - a poem by Alfred

Crucify the Rich, Burn them at the Stake/
Punish them for succeeding, where the rest of us has failed/
Their Remote controls the State like the TV channels they made/
Only 1 per cent are safe, 99 per cent are slaves/
Occupy the 1 per cent, Hello to Project Eliminate/
We don't need rich people in the world, walk 'em to their grave/
Like Marie Antoinette, and then We Would Eat Cake/
All Rich People are Evil, Greedy, and Really Vain/
Away with Rich people, Let us dig their graves/
They plan to dig ours, I can see it in their ways/
Who needs the Rich to build Banks, Skyscrapers, and Planes/
Who needs the Rich to build Rockets to take us to Outer Space/
Wealth can't create more jobs than poverty makes/
Poverty is what this country needs, take wealth away/
Destroy the Rich to make the world a better place/
I hate Rich people, even though I work all day/
I'm sure it's no so I could be Rich some day/
And if I get Rich I would give it all away/
Because I hate Riches, I'…

Sunday Morning Blues - a poem by Alfred

The Sun rays slowly crawls through my window/
It kisses my closed eyelids with Gusto/
My eyes roll open like a hand of Ludo/
I stretch Good Morning like I'm practising Judo/
I Growl like a Lion on a half empty stomach/
I praise the God who gave me Life with No Buts/
The Sunday Morning air beats all Pizza Huts/
Fancy trying to put Happiness in a Box/
I Decrease the weight of my cereal box/
Church Bells ring, Christianity Walks/
It's a day we all remember our Christian Walk/
Even radios remember and play Gospel Songs/
I hear no fighting or quarreling behind closed doors/
Yelp, it's Sunday alright, even when it pours/
There's something about Sundays that always oozes joy/
A Day of Rest, A Day of worshipping God/
Sunday Morning Blues stretches beyond the church/
Rejoice in the Lord whether or not you go to church/
But don't forsake Spiritual Growth, you'll grow in Joy/
And the Sunday Morning Blues won't leave Monday Morn'/
