Ref: Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 8:16-17

One day all disease will be banished from God’s redeemed creation. There will be a new earth. We will have new bodies.
Death will be swallowed up by everlasting life (1 Corinthians 15:54; 2 Corinthians 5:4). “The wolf and the lamb shall graze together; the lion shall eat straw like the ox” (Isaiah 65:25). And all who love Christ will sing songs of thanks to the Lamb who was slain to redeem us from sin and death and disease.
