The church of Christ in the last day sis ordained to walk in dominion in all spheres of life, despite the wickedness that will characterize the last days Psa. 110:1-3; Dan. 7:25-27. One area of life that the dominion of the saints is vital is over sickness and disease Isa. 33:24. The understanding of the cause of sickness and our covenant weapons are essential to experience dominion over sickness, disease and affliction Psa. 119:144.
Spirit behind Sickness and Disease.
Often, behind every sickness is a spirit at work. Some of them are:
Fear is a spirit, not a mood or issue of situation 2Tim. 1:7. The spirit of fear opens the door for what one is afraid of to happen; this is how many come under the affliction of sickness and disease Job 3:24-25. The good news is that a believer has been delivered from the Spirit of fear, hence he is ordained to dominate over sickness and disease Heb. 2:14-15.
There is the spirit of infirmity, when it afflicts the individual becomes deformed in his body Lk. 13:11-16; Acts 3:2-7. The believer has been licensed with the name of Jesus to exercise dominion over all spirits, including the spirit of infirmity, thereby walk in dominion over every form of deformity Php. 2:9-11.

When the damage is beyond repair, God’s word has capacity to make a new one to replace that which is damaged Gen. 1:1-31; Mat. 9:27-29; Acts 3:6-9.
By being prophetic it means, whatever God’s word says is what will come to pass no matter the situation Ezk. 37:1-14; 2Pet. 1:23.
