Do You Know the Origin of Sickness?
Although there is no specific Bible verse demonstrating that sickness entered into the world following the sin of the first man, Adam, it’s certain that before sin, death did not exist. And if death didn’t exist, there was no physical degeneration, and if there was no physical degeneration, there could be no sickness either.
Humanity breaking the divine, moral law led to it suffering all the evils listed in Deuteronomy 28.
The world, bearing the effects of the fall, became the scene where a drama of curse and affliction played out. Human beings injured, bound, bruised, oppressed, broken, crippled, lame, blind, mute, deaf, all playing their role in this seemingly unending procession.
“He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” (the Bible, 1 John 3:8)
The Good News is that Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil!
