Speaking in Tongues Revelation- Dealing with Sickness

As followers of Christ, it is our belief that sickness is not our portion. While this is true, even the best of us undergo periods of illness that range from minor to serious health complications. Many Christians, especially those who speak in tongues and faithfully follow God’s commands might wonder why this is the case.

There are a few things that God explained to me concerning sickness that I would like to share with you. These lessons pertain to the three main causes of illnesses; Human negligence, demonic oppression, and God’s curse.

Human negligence

Human negligence plays a significant role in the majority of sickness cases. This is when individuals fail to take proper care of their bodies and expose themselves to conditions that can lead to illness.

For example, not dressing warmly in cold weather could potentially attract cold-related illnesses. Similarly, interacting with people who suffer from communicable diseases without taking the necessary precautions is also a form of negligence.

While God may show mercy and try to keep us safe, ultimately our lifestyle choices play an important role in determining our health outcomes.

As a believer, whenever you fall ill, it is important for you to reflect on your life and check if you’re taking good care of yourself. God has entrusted us with the responsibility of safeguarding our well-being.

Demonic oppression

As the bible warns us, the devil’s goal is to steal, kill, and destroy. One of the enemy’s tactics is to bring sickness upon believers, causing them misery and eventually leading to death. By luring people into traps that make them sick, the devil carries out these evil schemes.

Demonic oppression occurs when demons are sent to oppress individuals, finding access in their lives through the presence of sin. Without sin, these demons cannot access us, as purity allows the Holy Spirit to dwell within us completely.

However, if you have defiled yourself, then the Holy Spirit cannot have complete control over your body. Consequently, the parts of your body that are not under the guidance of the Holy Spirit become vulnerable to demonic attacks.

By living immorally, you are essentially rejecting the presence of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit is grieved and takes a backseat, demons seize the opportunity to afflict you with sickness.

Therefore, it all boils down to living a pure life. If you can maintain purity in your life, you will be able to avoid most of these demonic operations that target your well-being.

God’s curse

Although rare, there are instances where God’s curse is the cause of certain illnesses that occur within a lineage. This is thought to be as a result of the actions of ancestors who committed grave sins that angered God. As a consequence, God placed a curse on the entire lineage, including the descendants.

Some of these curses manifest as illnesses. An example from the Bible is the story of Gehazi, the servant of Elisha. After Elisha healed Naaman of leprosy without asking for anything in return, Gehazi secretly pursued Naaman for the gifts he brought along, claiming that Elisha had sent him.

When Elisha found out, he was furious and declared that the leprosy that was on Naaman would now afflict Gehazi and his descendants. This serves as an illustration of how God’s curses can result in sickness being passed down through generations.

Some believers are born in lineages that carry certain curses in the form of sickness. As a result, they are also plagued with the same generational illnesses. To come out of this, the individuals must be cleansed with the blood of Jesus to break free.


These are the three key lessons that I learned from God regarding illnesses. It requires some effort and introspection to find out the root cause of the sickness you are experiencing.

Once you have determined the source, you can then learn how to pray accordingly. If the illness is a result of human negligence, it is your responsibility to be more accountable and make wise decisions about your life in order to overcome it.

In the case of illnesses caused by demonic influences, you should pray for God’s assistance in leading a pure life so that these oppressive forces no longer have power over you.

If the sickness is a result of a generational curse, you should pray for God’s guidance in breaking free from it.

For those who are currently facing sickness, I hope you find this information helpful as you receive healing in Christ.
