In the cause of trying to take God away from the scene and elevate the created (science) above the creator, the secular world has made us believe that anything that can’t be handled or proven scientifically cannot be true. Thus, erroneously made science the supreme knowledge of the truth. Whereas, science is just a fragment of true knowledge and facts.
According to the Oxford online dictionary, Science is defined as “The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.”
What is important to note in this definition is that Scientific facts or knowledge are based on observation and experiment from the physical and natural world.
How then can one place that which is of only the physical world as the supreme knowledge? They fail to realize that even mankind is first a Spirit being before is physical appearance. Remember that our physical body is like a house where the original spirit man dwells in.
Since the medical scientist is only concern about our physical and natural body, what about the spirit man. Who will treat the spirit man when it is infected or afflicted? This is where the supremacy of Faith above science comes in. Remember that it is the spirit that controls the physical and the natural world.
Now, what is Faith?
Faith is based on spiritual conviction or heavenly precepts. Faith is spiritual, but the effect can be seen or evidence in the physical. In Its role in knowledge, Faith encompasses knowledge from the immaterial (invisible) into the Material (physical) world.
It is correct to say that scientific discovering is as a result of Faith.
This may be hard to digest because the kingdom of this world has blinded our eyes to the reality of God’s power.
That is why it was not surprising when the Anointed Water that was sent by Prophet T.B. Joshua as requested by the government to bring about divine healing and stop the spread of Ebola virus that ravaged the nation of Sierra Leone in 2014 was confiscated by some persons who were ignorant of the reality of God’s healing power.
Mrs Fatmata Kargbo, the then Permanent secretary in the ministry of foreign Affairs in Sierra Leone, revealed in her testimony on Emmanuel TV that the south-east region of the country where the Anointed water was permitted to be ministered was cleared of the diseases within one month. She remarked, had it been the Anointed water was permitted to be ministered in the whole region; the disease would have been eradicated long ago.
Our God is a jealous God, whatever you try to elevate above Him suffers. Science will only continue to break through more barriers in discovering when it is kept in its rightful place, that is under God. Once you place it above God, it will in time lost its relevance. Every scientific field needs God to fulfil its full potentials in our world.
The ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua is a testament to the proof that science is not the ultimate as it is being exaggerated by the secular world. Scientist and specialist that are sincere know that science is not the ultimate of all truth, facts and knowledge. knowledge goes beyond our natural and physical world.
What fact those a scientist has about a homosexual that was made straight after a tough from God. What about a sickness that will take a doctor eight hours to do in the operating room, will take God’s Prophet to do within seconds and the healing will be so perfect when compared with one that went through an operation room.
I am not trying to diminish science, but we need to place it where it belongs. This is the only way it can be more useful to our world. Faith and science need to work together. Even if both need to be ranked, Faith has to come first. Because Faith represents God and God is more superior to everything.
Let’s accept this truth, for it to be well with us.
