Does cancer do any justice to the one that has it? Cancer is a topic of much controversy in the biblical field. There are so many questions. Most importantly, to have a thorough understanding of this topic we need to understand the history, the causes, and the cure. Yes, I said cure. The Bible, or should I say “God” does not lie. First of all, he has never told a lie and we can “believe” that. Finally, the Bible has the “answer” to any question.
I realize there are people going to say this author must be another one of them “nuts” that are cultish in thought and practice. Well, people can call me whatever they wish, this nut is screwed on the right bolt. Why? Because I am going to share with you what God says and not what Buddy thinks. That is the only thing that matters anyway.
First, what is Cancer? Cancer is a disease. It is a disease that tries to destroy the flesh. It was first given to the Egyptians because of sin. Exodus 15:26 says, “If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians”
Why does a person get cancer
Does that mean there is sin in someone’s life that has cancer? No, it does not. The reason that person has cancer in their life might not be because of them at all. Should we have biblical compassion on them that do have cancer?
The answer is yes. Should we have a doom and gloom attitude because of it, the answer is no. Why? Because God is in control of everything on this earth which we will go into a little deeper as we go along. We will also explain this “sin” factor.
The ancient or biblical name for cancer is “leprosy” which also is destruction of the flesh. Leprosy is mentioned 40 times in the bible. Now, many may not believe this, but it is according to the bible, God said it so that is why I believe it. There is a cure, and the cure is from our Lord.
Think about it. Man can fly to Mars with all his technological advances but has not cured cancer. If they had many people would be unemployed. Divine intervention is a cure. Also, iF God decides to cure, you will be better off, if He decides you need to come to heaven you will still be better off. Do you believe God? Many centuries ago, around 1,500 B.C. ancient Egyptians used a process of catherization or “fire drill” to treat leprosy.
The first person thought to have cancer was a 3,200-year-old skeleton of a man 25 to 30years old, around the year 1,200 B.C.
Most importantly, did you know that God allows trials in your life from up to four generations prior? He did in times past so why would He not today. Exodus 34:7, “Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.” There you have it. God said it, I didn’t.
You may never know why you have cancer until you meet the Lord. Then everything will be explained. Besides, the thing is, it may or may not be your fault. All we can do is trust the Lord. It may be for someone else’s faith benefit. That brings up another issue. Are generational curses passed on? Not curses, but consequences. There is atonement to all.
