Satan and his evil forces are root-cause for the sickness and diseases for mankind on this earth. God created Adam and Eve perfectly with no sins, diseases etc. However when they sinned against God, sickness entered into human as the Judgment for sin (Gen. 3:14-19,23-24). Because of his sin, man reaped sickness, pain, sorrow, misery, condemnation, death, loss of soul, fellowship and union with Satan and demons, an inferior position, power to do and be evil, a life of self-gratification, unclean lusts and habits, unbelief, separation from God, hardships, sufferings, hell, eternal damnation, and other curses too numerous to mention. He became depraved (Rom. 1), darkened (Eph. 4:18), blind in mind (2Cor. 4:4), defiled in conscience (Heb. 10:22), obstinate and rebellious (Isa. 28:14; Rom. 8:1-13), lustful (Eph. 2:1-3), evil continually (Gen. 6:5), full of abominations (Jer. 17:9; Mk. 7:19-21; Rom. 1:18-32; 1Cor. 6:9-11; Gal. 5:19-21; Col. 3:5-10) and lost--making all his offspring, with all their faculties, sinful by nature (Rom. 5:12-21; Eph. 2:1-3) and children of the devil by choice and practice (Jn. 8:44; 2Cor. 4:4; Eph. 2:1-3; 1Jn. 3:8-10). When Satan suggested that God put forth His hand and touch Job's possessions, it was really a suggestion that God withdraw His hand of protection so Satan could destroy Job's property (Job 1:11-12). Satan and evil forces are the agents of destruction, not God. The only sense in which God destroys is to withhold His protection and thereby turn an individual over to the devil to carry out his work upon that person. This truth is plainly demonstrated in the case of Job. Who was it that destroyed (Job 1:12-19) and afflicted the body (Job 2:7) when God permitted it to be done? The answer is Satan, and this will always be the case in instances of affliction and destruction (Lk. 13:16; Jn. 10:10; Acts 10:38). Satan brings about the actual happenings of accidents, sickness, disease, and calamity, then causes men to think that God brings these things to pass. Thus, He is blamed erroneously for the work of the devil by millions, even Christians who should know better. Permission by God is never the same as the work of Satan after permission is granted him: withdrawing protection and allowing another to destroy is not the same as the destruction itself. God's work is that of deliverance; Satan's is that of destruction (Jn. 10:10; Acts 10:38). Six agents of Satan on earth: 1. The Sabeans (Job 1:15) 2. Fire from heaven (Job 1:16) 3. Chaldeans (Job 1:17) 4. The elements (Job 1:19) 5. Disease (Job 2:7) 6. An ungodly wife (Job 2:9) In Mt 10:1, Jesus had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. Jesus gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.This is secret of power. One cannot receive it until it is given and one will not have to "take it by faith" after it is given (Jn. 3:27; Rom. 8:25)
