Jesus says in Mark 2:9-12 [Which is easier: to say to this paralyzed man, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’? But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the man, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”]
Paul says in 1Corinthians 15:56-57[“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.]
I am not a native english speaker and am not sure how to put this accross...
From Mark 2:9-12 we may presume that when sin is forgiven the associated illness is also healed.
From 1Corin15:56-57 and related verses we could assume that sin is the cause of almost all(John 9:3) illness and ultimately death.
Say if I have an illness which i think is caused by a particular sin of mine. I go confess my sin and receive forgiveness for my sin and stop repeating that sin. Could this mean that my illness will be healed? However if the illness still remains, would it mean that my sins have not been forgiven? Are there other verses in the Bible that supports this assumption?
