Sickness Is the Work of the Devil

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. — ACTS 10:38

Right after Rev. Dowie heard from the Spirit of God concerning the bubonic plague, there was a knock on his door. Three young men burst into his study. One of the young men said to Rev. Dowie, “Come quickly, Mary is dying, and Momma wants you to come.” Mary was a twelve-year-old girl who had the bubonic plague.

Rev. Dowie jumped from his desk, hatless and coatless, and ran down the street with the young men. He ran into the house, where the little girl lay on the bed in convulsions. That’s the way people died with the bubonic plague; they died in convulsions with bloody froth running out their mouth. The doctor said to Rev. Dowie, “In what mysterious ways God moves, His wonders to perform.”

Rev. Dowie, having just received this new revelation from God, said, “Doctor, how dare you call that the work of my God! My God wouldn’t kill a twelve-year-old girl! Sir, I’ll have you know that’s the work of the devil!” Rev. Dowie said to the mother of the girl, “Why did you send for me?” She said, “To pray.”

Not knowing exactly what words to say, Rev. Dowie laid his hands on the little girl and said, “Jesus is the Deliverer. Satan is the oppressor.” Then he quoted Acts 10:38 as well as other scriptures that began to come to him. While he was praying, the convulsions ceased, the bloody froth ceased, and the little girl fell into a deep sleep. When Mary opened her eyes, she looked at her mother and said, “Momma, I feel so good.” She was completely healed.

Confession: According to Acts 10:38, sickness and disease come from the devil, the oppressor. Healing comes from Jesus, the Deliverer!
