Sickness was a curse for sin under the Old Covenant Law (Deuteronomy 28:58-61).
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Old Covenant Law when He became a curse for our sins by hanging on a tree (Galatians 3:13).
Many Christians believe God makes them sick because He is punishing them for their sins.
Jesus set us free from the curse of the Law by taking the punishment for our sins. He not only removed our sins as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12). He also removed sickness—the curse of sin. (1 Peter 2:24).
Sin and sickness shall not be your master. You are no longer under the Law. You are under the New Covenant Grace of Jesus—redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus (Romans 6:14).
The enemy is the one who comes against you with sin and sickness trying to steal, kill, and destroy your faith. Jesus came to give you abundant life (John 10:10). The enemy is the author of everything that gives death. God is the author of everything that gives His life. If you have the Son, you have His life (1 John 5:12).
Never forget the benefits of God's truth. He forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases (Psalm 103:2-3).
You receive healing the same way you receive forgiveness. By faith in Jesus’ perfect and finished work of righteousness (Hebrews 10:38). Jesus received for you what you can never receive for yourself.
“My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh” (Proverbs 4:20-22).
Jesus is the Word. He came to heal you (John 1:1, Psalm 107:20).
