GO SHOW YOURSELF TO THE DOCTOR (Luke 17:11-14)

17 Sep


When Jesus met ten lepers who were in need of healing, he instructed them to go and show themselves to the Priest. This was due to the contagious nature of leprosy which needed special clearance before one could be accepted back into the community. Lepers were not allowed to mix with the generality of the community hence they had to shout for help from afar. While I am a strong believer in divine healing, I have observed appalling and suicidal instructions which are being given to the sick by certain preachers big and small. What is more disturbing is that most of these sick people suffer or die in silence due to innocently following what they are instructed to do as proof that they have faith that they have been healed. People who are living with HIV/AIDS and are depending on anti-retroviral drugs (I personally consider these drugs to be a gift from God) are being told to throw them away by faith. Same applies to people who have High Blood Pressure, Sugar Diabetes or other terminal illnesses. They are also being told to throw away their medication, again by faith. Truth be told, there are a lot of untold stories of death due to this level of carelessness and heartlessness being perpetuated by men of the cloth. I as a fellow preacher, I have had some struggles in attempting to detox this poisonous distortion about divine healing. Sadly I have also presided over the burial of people who have died due to being misled by preachers of the word. My suggestion to my fellow preachers is that they should refer people they declare healed to go show themselves to the doctor before they make the suicidal move of of throwing away their medication without medical proof of healing. My argument is based on the premise that if we truly believe that God has healed someone, we must have the confidence to refer them back to the doctor. Lest we forget, we are accountable for every innocent soul we cause to die before their time. To those who go for divine healing sessions, do yourself a favour by going to show yourself to the your medical doctor. It could save your life. Let those who diagnosed your ailment clear you. Forewarned is forearmed.

    Very much needed message. Thank you. Most
    Of us struggle to accept that we unwell for the fear of being labelled ‘you of little faith’ let alone taking tablets. I hope most of us will take the free advice.
