1/18/17 – “I will not be sick, and my sins are forgiven!”

Published: Wednesday, 18 January 2017 Written by Carlton L. Arnold

No one who dwells there will say, “I am sick”; the people who live there will be forgiven their guilt.   Isaiah 33:24 (NABRE)

This verse has two blessings: 1. No sickness, and 2. Free from all guilt due to sin. I found this amazing verse while slowly reading through the book of Isaiah.  I had overlooked it many times.  However, for the past ten years, I have had many physical health problems.  I almost cried when I realized that someday in the future, Jesus Christ will not allow anyone to be sick.  Even more so is the conviction that all of my sins have been forgiven and forgotten.  In addition, God has also removed the guilt that I feel from doing bad things. 

No more cancer, diabetes, heart problems, and on and on.  Doctors, nurses, hospitals, and medical insurance companies will not be needed.  No prescription drugs will be needed to resolve any body illness.  It is almost too hard to believe.  However, remember that Adam and Eve lived without any illnesses in the Garden of Eden.  The Bible does not tell us how long they lived without any headaches or heartaches, but it lasted until they disobeyed God.  Only after they sinned, did God remove them from the Garden of Eden, and they began to age, get sick, and eventually die. 

God did not stop there. God sent His only Son to innocently die on the cross to free us from sin.  Those who believe that God has done this through Jesus Christ will be forgiven of their sin, iniquity, and guilt. 

I realize that Isaiah is talking about the time in the future when Jesus Christ will rule as King on this earth.  For now, Satan is wreaking havoc on this world.  The human gene pool is so contaminated resulting in cancer, etc.  It is amazing that geneticists are finding the DNA markers that have been damaged over the years resulting in all kinds of illnesses that are passed from generation to generation.  Jesus Christ will put a stop to this by cleaning up the gene pool.  After all, He created the human DNA to begin with; therefore, He is certainly capable of making any adjustments.  By the way, I think this is what happens when we hear about miracle healings.   People have cancerous tumors one day and the next day the doctors cannot find the tumors.  The doctors have no explanation.

I pray that this verse will make your current illness easier to live with.  I pray that you will know that your illness is only temporary.  I pray that your hope will increase when you meditate on the thought that, one day, Believers will say, “I am not sick!”  An even greater blessing is that since God has forgiven you of your sins, you will live with Him for eternity.  Amen and amen!!
