The Duke if Sickness is a putrid and merciless creature. When he comes, the world around you seems harder and harder to face. He whips his serpent tails, attempting to sting you with infections of all kinds. it settles into your flesh, attacking your body and mind, telling your thoughts that it is over.
As you come to believe this, you slowley lose our strength and the fear of what is to come consumes the forefront of your thoughts, weakening the defenses of your spirit. At that point, Sickness is given the power to take you down. Death is his duty, pain is his calling, and Fear and Suffering are his brothers.
We as people, have been given great power and skills to combat this monster through discovery, science & the creative rendering of our King’s creation. But in The Unseen, no medicine of man will completely stop this monster. We must cry out to the One who has conquered all of this before and seek His advice and believe that he hears our cries through the muffled walls of darkness. And if we listen closely we can hear him whisper promises that one day we will not taste of Sickness anymore. And if we trust Him in this, we will have the strength to fight today; and those who endure to the end will be free of this vile curse.
"So, today we stand in defiance against the tyranny of Sickness! Today we fight!"
"A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."
Proverbs 17:22 (ESV)
