Since I'm currently battling a bit of a cold these questions started coming to my mind. Did sickness start occurring after the fall of mankind? What is the reason that we biblically get sick? Did Jesus Himself get sick? (Although on that last question I'm guessing that even if He did He could just heal Himself afterwards.) Does anybody know the answers to these questions? :thinking

Sickness definitely came after the fall of man due to the fact that we all walk in disobedience to God's commands at times because we allow the flesh to take over the Spirit of God that we are to be walking in. There will always be a battle between the flesh and the Spirit within us until Christ returns and we then receive our new glorified bodies.

Read Deuteronomy Chapters 27, 28 as this speaks of God's cursing and blessings.

What do you mean by this?
Are you saying the bible makes us sick, or is there a reason in the bible why we get sick?

Cos thje first doesn't happen and the 2nd is because when God cursed the world it caused benefical bacteria to start to mutate and become hostile to us, causing sickness.

Obviously the second and alright,.. but when did God curse the world? Are you talking about the great flood? :confused

I think Jesus would lead you to the cold medicine aisle. Death was introduced into the world through the one man. Clearly flesh is mortal and therefore is subjected to accidents, illness and death. Christians get sick and their bodies die. But as Jesus stated though they were to die yet shall they live and never die.
Your not alone as I get colds and sometimes get sick. I pray- Hence, "I think Jesus would lead you to the cold medicine aisle"

Simon’s mother-in-law was very sick. She had a high fever. They asked Jesus to do something to help her. He stood very close to her and ordered the sickness to go away. The sickness left her, and she got up and began serving them. Luke 4:38b-39 ERV

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law... Galatians 3:13a NKJV
What does the curse of the law have to do with this flesh getting sick at times as we are no longer under the law except for the moral parts.

IMO the flesh gets sick because it can not be in obedience to God's commands and statures as the flesh is enmity against the spirit.

I think he's referring to when God cursed the world after Adam sinned.


That makes sense.

Obviously I'm taking cold medicine but I don't believe I ever asked what I'm supposed to do for a good, I asked why I get them and other illnesses in the first place.

Yeah I wondered the same question and that could be right, but don't forget the scientific terms either as I do believe germs have a big part in it. Though that begs the question who created germs As I do believe that some germs are good for you and they prevent you from getting sick, but a lot of germs get you sick so maybe both God and Satan created them. Then again, I wonder if Satan can actually create anything though. :confused
