3 Reasons Why People Get Sick

There are three reason why people get sick.  One of them is sin.  After healing the man at the pool of Bethseda, Jesus said to him:  Behold, thou art made whole:  sin not more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.  John 5:14

Jesus made it very clear in this verse that this man's sickness would return worse ,if he continued to sin.  Therefore, Jesus linked sickness with sin.  Now, this isn't the only reason that people get sick, but it is one reason.

The second major reason that people get sick is because we are in a battle with the devil.  Some people aren't aware of this, but not everything that goes on is merely physical.  There is a spiritual battle raging and satan wants to destroy our lives.

Sometimes  it's not based on an individual sin but. in a sense, it is sin-based because satan was loosed into this earth through sin, but the sickness isn't necessarily from your individual sin.

Jesus spoke of this as He walked by a man who had been born blind.   "His disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents,   Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents:  but that the works of God should be made manifest in him."  John 9:2,3.

The Lord wasn't saying that neither this man nor his parents have'd never sinned.  The bible is clear about this point.   "all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."  Romans 3:23.

Even though they had sin in their life, Jesus was saying that neither this man's nor his parent's sin had caused this blindness.  Satan is going around seeking whom he may devour.  (1 Peter 5:8).

Sin is one reason people get sick.  Another reason is that we live in a fallen world,  There is a curse on this earth. Since mankind fell and sin has infected the earth ,all kinds of germs and viruses that were once good    the devil.has now perverted them

The good news is that no matter what caused the sickness, sin, the devil, or the fallen world -there's always something we can do about it ,The Lord Jesus has redemed us from sin, sickness ,hell and the grave ,we can take our authority ,excise our faith and release the healing power of God in our lives.Victory in the blood of the lamb.
