 Did Jesus redeem us from our diseases?



Question: “Did Jesus redeem us from our disease at the same time He redeemed us from our sins.  He paid the price for our sins, did He also pay the price for our sickness?”



Bible Answers

There was no sickness in the Garden of Eden until sin entered, then came sickness and death.  


Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned (Romans 5:12).


Since disease entered the world through sin, the remedy must be found in the redemption of Jesus. It is through Jesus that sins are forgiven and it is through Jesus and faith that sickness is banished.


In the garden, sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned (Romans 5:12). In this sense all sickness is the result of sin. Sometime the sickness can be traced to a specific sin or it may be caused by the sins that surround us, or other times it can be a direct attack of the enemy.


Sin and sickness are closely associated. Jesus said, in dealing with sickness, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee (Mark 2:5), and to another, Sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee (John 5:14).


James admonishes the sick, Confess your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed (James 5:16).


But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).


He took up our infirmities and bore our sickness (Matthew 8:16-17).


This is only a few of the many examples that with sin comes sickness. Sin breaks down the protective hedge that God builds around you, sin permits Satan to afflict you.


As with repentance and salvation, God wants His children to repent and be healthy as Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross paid the punishment for our sins and redeemed us of those sins that caused sickness.


Is that a 100% guarantee that you will be healed?  No. We do find examples in the Bible where a child of the Lord was not healed.  While god does explain why is some cases, in others cases God’s reasons are part of God’s mysteries.


He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, in order that we might die to sins and live to righteousness. By His wound you are healed (1st Peter 2:24).


God has made over 3,000 promises to us, including health, but we must believe and receive the answer by believing in faith, by being within the conditions God has set to receive.


I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours (Mark 11:24).


Like all things, if you are sick right now, pray with faith and ask God what you should do and say to receive your healing.


Chris paid the price for our sins and He paid the price for our healing. It is now up to us to meet God’s conditions for receive.


The following verse tell us that all of God’s promises, including healing, exist exclusively to the redeeming work of Christ.


For all the promises of God find their Yes in Christ. That is why it is through Christ that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.(2 Cor. 1:20)


During Christ’s time on earth, He healed all that came to Him. If Christ is now less interested in healing His children as when He walked the earth, then He would be a different Christ now than He was and Hebrews 13:8 would be false, because it says, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. But Jesus is the same and has just as much interest in healing those who come to Him in complete faith. For he took up our pain and bore our suffering (Isaiah 53:4).


Galatians 3:13 tells us that Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us and Deuteronomy 28:15-62 lists many sicknesses that Christ redeems us from.


Clearly Christ’s Atonement provided equally deliverance from sin and deliverance from disease for those who will receive.
