“And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?” (Luke 13:16)
Here we see Jesus going into the synagogue on the Sabbath. A woman was there whose body was bowed together in a fixed position. She couldn’t straighten up. Jesus called her to him, and said, “Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity!” Then Jesus laid hands on her, and immediately she stood straight. The religious leaders of the synagogue got angry. Just like today, religious people look for all kinds of excuses for staying bound by satan’s spirit of infirmity. Many blame sickness on God.
Jesus elaborated on the fact that satan is the author of sickness. Jesus made three enlightening statements. (1) The woman ought to be loosed, she ought not to be bound, she ought to be free from this physical infirmity; (2) It was satan who had bound her, not God; (3) The reason this woman ought to be loosed was because she was a daughter of Abraham.
Are you not a daughter/son of Abraham? Don’t you have a right to be loosed from a spirit of infirmity?
CONFESSION: Since satan is the author of sickness, I OUGHT TO WALK FREE FROM SICKNESS. AND JESUS HAS MADE THE PROVI-SION FOR ME TO DO SO. DIVINE HEALTH IS MY COVENANT RIGHT!
