O Cancer, Where is Your Sting, Where is Your Victory?

I have been wondering what to write about the subject of cancer. Yesterday I was watching the news and I kept hearing one phrase over and over being said by people.

A voice inside of me kept saying “you should address this” So here I am and I would like to begin with that phrase and let the words lead me where they will.


The government should do something about cancer, diabetes and all the diseases that are troubling the people in this country.


I asked my sister who is the government? To be honest I was troubled and alarmed by the state of despair and despondency cancer is putting in our country. I felt the fear even while walking along the corridors and road sides, the conversations people were having by themselves in groups carried such hopelessness.

The truth and harsh reality is, the government of a country can only do so much about cancer. It can provide best medical expertise and create awareness about it. We too, can do our best to look into our diets, get regular check ups and create a conscious effort to talk about it. But even with all this said and done, I strongly believe that Christ is the only one with the solution to cast down every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.

Some of you may question, “But where is this God you keep telling us about?” I am nobody that I should defend Him, stand in place for Him and convince people that He is still in the midst of all evil and despair.

I only know what He has allowed me to know and experienced what He has allowed me to experience and that is;

He is, He exists, and He is love

My question was, who is the government?

I have come to realize even in my own seeking and examining, and questioning, all questions eventually point to one place.

Christ

Jesus Christ was the child born unto us, and His government is coming soon, where there shall be perfect peace and no more death.

For God so loved that world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. —John 3:16

One day, very soon, there will be no more cancer, no more death, no more pain, no more sorrows because Jesus will destroy them all.

God is not a man that He should lie, He has promised us this much and more. Even though we despair today, we have a hope that no man can take. Even though we sorrow for our friends and loved ones who have been taken by cancer and other diseases or accidents, we rejoice because Jesus Christ has their life in His hands, therefore, we shall see them again. Even though it seems He has been gone for a long time, He will surely come and destroy all these sorrowful burdens that frighten us and leave us wounded.

1 Corinthians 15

20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.
23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.
24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.
25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.
26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.

Now, I would be lying to you all if I wrote here that that death does not shake me, even though I know that if I die, I will live again, but it does. However, knowing what I know, and having experienced what I have experienced, I know that even when all things seem out of control— God is in control.

1 Corinthians 15

50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—
52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
55 “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?”
56 The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
