There are many sacred cows going around that people are worshiping.
Sacred cows are wrong teachings and doctrines of devils that people unwittingly have learned and embraced and hold on to as gospel truths and will not let them go or give them up for anything even when confronted with in-your-face contradictory scripture and evidence that even they cannot refute.
As such they will worship these doctrines as idols to their own detriment.
One of these sacred cows is based on the following scripture:
And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. John 9:1-3
And the doctrine goes like this:
“Because Jesus said that neither he nor his parents had sinned, God made him blind so that Jesus could heal him to manifest the works of God in him.”
This is as absurd as saying:
“Let me shoot you with my gun so that when I remove the bullet and bandage up your wound, I can manifest to you how compassionate I am.”
It is so absurd it is almost laughable but good people actually believe this and point to this verse and use it as a reason (or rather an excuse) why they are sick and not healed.
They don’t even realize that they are actually blaming God for putting and keeping sickness on them or their loved ones when the word specifically says the exact opposite that Jesus gave His back to the smiters (Isaiah 50:6), “Himself took our infirmities, and the sicknesses [no longer ours] he did bear” (Matthew 8:16-17 YLT) and “with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:4-5,) and “by whose stripes ye were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
Even if this were true, which it is not, then where is their faith to then apply the stripes of Jesus to get healed so they can manifest the works of God in themselves and give God the glory that is due Him? Isn’t this what they confess to be believing?
Why stop short of blaming God and attributing this to Him as if it is some sort of divine blessing just for them which He singled them out for and confessing that this is God’s will for them and that He did this to them to manifest His works in them and then not proceed to prove it by getting healed to manifest His glory?
So, obviously something is seriously wrong with their doctrine and belief system.
And the enemy is laughing them to scorn. He absolutely loves this kind of delusion.
Why? Because he knows full well that he is the one to blame for putting this on them. And instead they are blaming it on God? Hysterical!
Not only do they not blame the enemy for their sickness, they pin it on God and not on him. And then they silently blame God for not healing them. O my, double blame on God instead of on him! Such lies and delusion. Do you see now why he is in a stitch?
Nowadays we would call this a “False Flag” operation. To start a war, the enemy will simply launch an attack under the enemy’s banner and then claim that it was the enemy who provoked them by striking first to justify attacking them. See how that works?
How do we know that the enemy is responsible for all sickness and disease. Very simple.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10
This is the dividing line of who is responsible for what. There is your source of all misery; the thief who is Satan the devil and his minions. It is he who comes to kill you and to steal from you and to destroy you anyway he can by putting sickness and disease on you, by causing misery and divisions, by temptation to sin and to be disobedient, to the end to destroy your trust and faith in the word and power of God to ultimately destroy you.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8
The only thing that Jesus destroyed was his works.
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8
Same with the woman Satan, not God, had bound for 18 years:
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
To be consistent, the sacred cow theory would have to apply here too, now wouldn’t it? The false belief that God would have bound this woman, or allowed her to be bound, so that Jesus could heal her to manifest the works of God in her, right?
Well, Jesus just blew that whole false doctrine out of the water here and placed the blame squarely on Satan himself.
Luke, as the author of Acts, confirms this too that all, including the blind man of John 9:1-3 cited above, were oppressed of the devil, and not of God, and it was Jesus who healed them.
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
Anything you read in the bible where God put anything on anyone, was in the Old Testament as judgement for sin which is no longer the case because God our Father has committed all judgment to His Son Jesus.
For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: John 5:22
As such God the Father is not judging anyone at this time after He turned all judgement over to Jesus and cannot, by His own decree, put any sickness or disease on anyone as judgement for anything. In turn Jesus turned all judgement over to you as a believer! That’s right. Read it here:
For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Matthew 12:37
The Father has reserved a day in which He will judge the non-believers at the end of the millenium by their obedience to His Son Jesus Christ.
Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. Act 17:31
Besides, didn’t Jesus confirm that no sin had been committed? So how could there have been any judgement for sin on this man to cause his blindness? Only Satan could be so cruel as to attack an innocent man and steal his eyesight.
According to Finnis Dake quoting Josephus, the explanation for why the disciples asked Jesus this question was this:
Jews believed that pious souls were reincarnated as a reward, not punishment; and that the wicked were put into eternal prisons to be tormented forever (Josephus, Antiquities, Book 18, 1:6, and War, Book 2, 8:14).
Jesus in His answer overcame their superstitions and the wrong teachings they grew up with and put the argument to rest by saying that neither his parents nor he had sinned. But regardless of the cause, the works of God should be made manifest in him.
So you have to read John 9:3 in context with John 10:10 and then you will see that God did not cause the man’s blindness but overcame it.
The enemy was and today still is the cause of all illnesses, sicknesses and diseases, even blindness and birth defects and in Jesus name we have the power in authority and by the Holy Spirit we have the dynamic power in ability to overcome it, or rather him, and destroy the works of the devil.
Jesus came that we may have life and that more abundantly which included healing of all of these. He was manifested to destroy the works of the devil as it so states above in 1 John 3:8.
We are commanded to do the same works that He did and even greater.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John 14:12
Which brings us right back to the last part of John 9:3, to manifest the miraculous works of God. We as believers are the ones He has appointed, read anointed, to perform these mighty works in His name in others as well as in our own bodies.
Sacred cows are not to be worshiped but to be slaughtered instead. Cows give milk but to get to the meat, you have to slaughter them.
