Genesis 1:31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning–the sixth day.
Are viruses and diseases ‘very good’? No. Then God did not create them.
So where did they come from then?
God the Creator created all that we see and can not see. The plants, herbs, spices, fruits and other vegetation were all given to keep humans healthy. According to historic records, the vegetation and fruits that were created to be used for good health started to be abused and used for other purposes. Enoch, the 7th from Adam, records that ‘others’ taught the Adam (humans) how to use the plants and fruit to make drugs (mind altering potions, poisons). These brews were used to hypnotize, cast spells, enchantments and to induce sexual orgies. It was called sorcery (witchcraft).
Who were the ‘others’?
Biblical terminology, ‘messengers’ and the Bible would call those beings ‘angels’, ‘fallen angels’.
Genesis 6:4 The Nephilim* were on the earth in those days–and also afterward–when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown. *Nephilim means ‘fallen ones’.
“And all the others together with them took unto themselves (human) wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants.” Book of Enoch 7:1-2
This passage confirms Genesis chapter 6 and fills in the blanks. The civilization in Noah’s day was filled with drugs (sorcery). They had become mentally and spiritually ill. It was a civilization much like what ours has become today, filled with ‘sorcerers’ poisoning society. This is where we get viruses and diseases. It comes from following the teachings of the fallen angels. It is nothing more than the result of rebellion through sorcery and witchcraft.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (Galatians 5:19-21)
I want to expound on ‘witchcraft’ in addition to calling your attention to the idolatry mentioned in the previous passage:
Witchcraft (pharmakeia, pharmacy) in the New Testament in the original sense means drugs, magic and sorcery. Pharmakeus means druggist, poisoner, wizard, magician, sorcerer.
There are (2) words translated to witchcraft in the Old Testament. Kehsem, which speaks of divination, an oracle, and is associated with rebellion. This is when one clearly hears the voice of God and decides to do the opposite, depending on human intellect for guidance instead of on God.
I Samuel 15:23a For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.
Then there is the witchcraft called Kashaph, which means to practice sorcery, a sorcerer, sorceress: one that uses plants, herbs to put you in an altered state of consciousness, cast a spell, shadow over the mind, drugs; poison.
These are the types of witchcraft Jezebel uses that many have been charmed and deceived into addiction by; it is spiritual seduction, a form of mind control. She clearly has whole nations subdued and under her spell. This is also how she is able to manipulate the minds of the false prophets and leaders that ‘sit at her table’ as they eat and drink what she’s concocted (see also I Kings 21, 2 Kings 9, etc).
So where did viruses and diseases come from then? Man made them by following the teachings of the fallen angels. They are the result of man tampering with the balance of the ecosystem (herbs, plants, etc) God established in nature. They are the physical manifestations of the spiritual sins of sorcery and rebellion.
