Redeemed From The Curse
. . . These curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee. . . . If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law. . . . Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law . . . .
— DEUTERONOMY 28:15,58,61
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse
for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree. — GALATIANS 3:13
The Bible says that all sickness and disease is a curse of the law. In
Deuteronomy chapter 28, the law specifically named eleven diseases as
being a curse of the law; then verse 61 encompasses all sickness and disease
as a curse of the law.
But Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law! Christ is not going to redeem us; He has already redeemed us.
Peter, looking back to the sacrifice at Calvary, said, “. . . by whose stripes ye WERE healed” (1 Peter 2:24). Not going to be, but were!
God remembers that He laid on Jesus not only the sins and iniquities of us all, but also our sicknesses and diseases (Isa. 53:4,5). Jesus remembers that He bore our sins and sicknesses for us (Matt. 8:17). Therefore, the Holy Spirit inspired Peter to write, “. . . by whose stripes ye were healed.”
Confession: According to Deuteronomy 28, all sickness and disease is a
curse of the law. But according to Galatians 3:13, Christ has redeemed
me from the curse of the law. Therefore, I am redeemed from sickness!
