Evil and disease are disarmed by the understanding of the infinite nature of God and the deceptive lying nature of what would announce itself to be valid, and the opponent of God. In healing prayer, we are not working to defeat a power of disease, but rather the lying claim of the substantiality of disease, which could only originate in evil thought, never in God. The falsity of evil, which would oppose God, is unquestioningly believed and accepted almost universally at face value. Disease receives honor from general human belief where rejection is due – hence its apparent victory to the uninformed human senses. What we are fighting is
1.the world’s belief in and fear of disease
2.; the world’s belief in and fear of evil
3. the world’s belief in and fear that something outside of God’s universe is powerful and out of control.
In these facts reside our strength and victory on the side of God in prayer- because God is All, infinite in space, and omnipotent in power. Prayer puts us into a state of awareness of the perfect good and Allness which is God and his real, spiritual universe.
Eph 6: 10-12
10. Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
If God is all, what choice do we really have but to choose his infinite omnipotent might? To choose evil or to allow it to have victory is to acknowledge a power outside of God. Does not the First Commandment tell us to honor no other power? “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Ex 20)
12. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places
We are not wresting with fleshly disease. We are wrestling with wicked and evil beliefs. Beliefs which claim to reside in a human realm, in this material world claiming to be outside of God’s omnipotence. But, being outside of or overpowering omnipotence is nonsense. If omnipotence does not absolutely have all possible power, but omnipotence must battle with something that opposes it, then it is no longer omnipotence at all. God could not be omnipotent in a universe where evil has the power to oppose it, by definition of the word omnipotence. There is no secondary power – only the power of good. Herein is our victory guaranteed.
