I promised I would do a post on this subject a while back, and so I thought I would put it together and give you a little info on this.
Doctors have the backing of government – laws are created that say only a doctor can claim to cure (even though drugs generally don’t cure anything). Drug companies make billions every year and every year hundreds of thousands of peolpe die from medical treatment, medicines, misdiagnosis, neglect, complications and so on. If they couldn’t give you a label in the form of diagnosis in the first place you might be more charry about accepting drugs from them.
This article is designed to get you thinking about the way diagnosis labels us as ‘ill’.
You will be astounded at the underhand way that language can be used – in fact if you watched the John Harris video I put up, (Link) you’ll not be so surprised – in fact you’ll be quite used to the idea of Latin (the Roman system) being used to subjugate the masses from time immemorial…
So I’m going to break down some Latin disease names for you now.
Let’s start with a simple one: Fibromyalgia. First of all there are no current tests available to prove that you have anything wrong with you if you do get this diagnosis (dire-gnosis!). So let’s see what the likely scenario is: You’ve been visiting your doctor for some months complaining of muscle pain. They have tried this and that drug, but nothing has made the pain, or you, go away. You may end up with a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. What is Fibromyalgia. It’s muscle pain – exactly what you told your doctor you had. Fibro is fibre and myalgia is muscle pain. Pain in the fibres of your muscles.
Let’s do a more complex one: Myasthenia gravis.
My (muscle related)
gravis (grave, or serious)
So Myasthenia gravis is grave muscle weakness. That is not to belittle this condition, which is a serious one for those who suffer from it, but until very recently there were no tests for this condition, and even now the testing available is very new, so may prove later to be less than helpful.
You need to understand that there are many conditions where a Latin word-label is given, and where a demonic cause is then over-looked. If you are a Christian, it’s vital you go to God first! Link
Let’s do another:
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (or PCOS)
Poly – many
cystic – cysts
Ovary – your ovary that stores and releases your eggs
Syndrome – well let’s see the dictionary definition, shall we?
So basically your ovaries are growing many cysts and this creates a condition which is counted as a syndrome, with all it’s multiple facets and symptoms. This isn’t a cause – there isn’t a known cause – doctors now claim that genetics may be a factor, which is convenient, but not very helpful.
I’m not in anyway doing this to belittle illness – it’s just that we need to grasp the nettle here – if the devil makes you sick, or sin makes you sick do you want the devil to provide you a drug (pharmakeia), and your doctor to give you a label (dire-gnosis), or would you rather get straight with God and be healed?
The spiritual causes might be sin, bitterness, anger, unforgiveness – I even read a story once of a woman who got sick after she prayed to receive a thorn in her side, like Paul had – she felt it would make her a better Christian. In fact she had just agreed to get ill, and demons had done the rest.
Sometimes we are under a curse because of sin in our families – this can look superficially like it’s genetic – a family where there is consistent disease through generations. This is the work of the devil, but all doors to him must be closed, repented of and sealed with the blood of Christ to stop it.
There are many times in the bible where Yeshua healed the sick. Sometimes, He cast out demons to do it, one time He used His spit on their eyes, or other times He simply agreed with their immense faith that His word alone was all that was needed.
“And Jesus answered and said to them, “It is not those who are well who need a physician, but those who are sick.” Luke 5:31
But this is taken completely out of context! Now read the context:
“30The Pharisees and their scribes began grumbling at His disciples, saying, “Why do you eat and drink with the tax collectors and sinners?” 31And Jesus answered and said to them, “It is not those who are well who need a physician, but those who are sick. 32“I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”” Luke 5:30-32
Yeshua is our Great physician – trust on Him, and be healed.
If you’re curious to look up an illness, a good place to start is to do an internet search for medical pre- and suffixes. If you aren’t sure how to spell your illness, ask your doctor to write it down for you. It is not a coincidence that many patients cannot even pronounce their own ailment, nor ever see it written down – that is another way of preventing you from learning about your condition.
God Bless you
