To complement this writing, I encourage you to read my writings Healing From Jesus and Divided We Fall. You must be convinced that God has provided promises in His Word to heal all people who would reach out to Him in faith. Do you believe that God has already made provision for your healing through Jesus Christ?
"He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions." Psalm 107:20. "...and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;" Psalm 103:2-3.
God sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to die on a cross and shed His Precious Blood, so that you and I could be restored back into right relationship with Him. Sin had entered into the world, and there needed to be an acceptable blood sacrifice made to atone for each person's death penalty, for their sins. God in His Infinite Wisdom, sent His Son, who lived a sinless life, to pay for our complete Salvation, of our spirit, mind, physical body, and so much more. Jesus came "...to seek and to save that which was lost." Luke 19:10. All we must do is believe God and Jesus. "...the just shall live by his faith." Habakkuk 2:4. God desires to forgive all of our sins, and heal all our sicknesses and diseases through Christ's Wonderful Sacrifice. Christ's Body and Blood were given as an offering, as a substitution for us, so we would not have to pay the price that the penalty of sin requires. God desires us to walk in freedom, provided by His Grace. Jesus Christ came to restore the breach that man's sin and rebellion against God had created. Jesus' Life (His Blood) was poured out as an offering to atone for our sins, to reconcile us back to God. See Romans 5:8-11.
Jesus paid the full price for our healing. Physical healing is tied to being whole spiritually, and blameless. We should desire that God sanctify us wholly in spirit, soul, and body. See 1 Thessalonians 5:23. "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." 3 John 2. Healing belongs to Christian Believers today, who will believe that Jesus purchased it for them and that He still heals! "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." Isaiah 53:5. "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." 1 Peter 2:24. "...they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses." Matthew 8:16-17.
God expects us to demonstrate our total faith and belief in Him and in His Son, Jesus, with our thoughts, our words, and our actions at all times. The enemy wants us to sin, by demonstrating a lack of our faith in Jesus Christ and God, so that we will become separated from God. Our lack of faith disappoints God and Jesus.When You Choose to not forgive, to be critical, or to entertain fear or doubts about The Faithfulness of God, God's Word, or Jesus Christ, it opens the door to sin, and causes a separation between you and God. Many do not receive their healing because they hold onto sin and doubts. Being under grace and mercy, does not grant us permission to sin. Repent: "...work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." Philippians 2:12. We must respect and reverence God. "...let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God." 2 Corinthians 7:1. God wants us sanctified, to live a holy life set apart for Him, free from sin. If we sin, we must quickly be reconciled to others, and to God, by repenting and asking for forgiveness of our sins, staying free. See 1 John 1:9-10, Matthew 5:22-24, 2 Timothy 2:19-26. "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7.
