Healing - Part I

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

In this issue of The Prophetic Messenger, we will begin a message titled “Healing.”

1. Is It The Lord’s Will I’ll Be Healed? Yes!


Testimony
When I was a teenager, many years before I was a Christian and many years before I knew any of the promises in the Bible, the Lord Jesus Christ healed me. I was playing organized sports and one day I came home with a pain in my leg. I thought that it was a muscle pull or stain and I would treat it and it would feel better for a time. But when I went out again to play the pain would come back. I went to the emergency room at the hospital to try to find out what was causing my pain. But no one could find out what exactly was causing the problem. When I finally got an appointment with my family doctor, he took an x-ray of my leg. The x-ray showed that the problem was in my hip and that I needed surgery. Before the operation, the surgeon told me that my right hip was out of the socket and that I had little cartilage in between the bones. He also said that I might not be able to run again if the cartilage did not repair itself. Even though I didn’t know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour at that time, I prayed that the Lord would heal me and Jesus Christ healed me! Months later after the surgery, another x-ray was taken and the Lord had totally restored the cartilage in the hip area and the doctor was amazed by the results. Praise the Lord! This should encourage any Christian who needs a healing from the Lord that Jesus Christ is a healer.

Most Christians know that we have salvation through the shed blood, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Hebrews 9 is a good passage of scripture confirming this truth. In Hebrews 9:11-22 it says “11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. 17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. 18 Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood. 19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, 20 Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you. 21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. 22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”

The one part many Christians miss is that the stripes on Jesus were for our healing. In I Peter 2:24 it says “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.” Also, in Isaiah 53:4-5 it says “4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 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.”

2. We Need Faith To Be Healed

Hebrews 11 shows us many examples of people of faith in the Bible. In Hebrews 11:1 it tells us what faith is. In Hebrews 11:1 it says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Meaning we have to believe before we see the results. In Hebrews 11:6 it says “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” In Ephesians 2:8-9 it says “8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.” If we are Christians we have faith but we need to exercise our faith to please God.

3. It Is The Same Anointing That Heals Any Sickness

It is the same anointing that heals any sickness. In Matthew 8:1-3, 14-17 it says “1 When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. 2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed........14 And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever. 15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. 16 When the even was come, 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: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” We see Jesus, in Matthew 8, healing the leper, Peter’s wife mother sick of a fever and multitudes. We should believe God to answer prayer for any sickness.

Memory Verses

As Christians if we want to live in victory and if we want to be able to share the Word Of God with others we must know the Word of God ourselves. Let's see what the Bible says about this. "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." Psalm 119:11. "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." John 15:7. "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed." John 8:31. We encourage you to put the following scriptures in your heart: I John 2:20, Obadiah 1:21, Colossians 2:12, Isaiah 1:16, Zephaniah 2:3, Romans 13:12, Job 19:25, Ephesians 6:18, I Corinthians 14:33, Proverbs 6:2.
