There should be no doubt in any believer’s mind; HEALING BELONGS TO EVERY BELIEVER!
John 17:6a – I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world:
Psalm 103, Psalm 107, Proverbs 4, Isiah 53, 3 John, and myriad other Scriptures state it so plainly. Healing is as well established in covenant as the new birth, as firmly settled as eternal life, and as real as created itself. It IS the will of God for ALL His people to live in health in this earth in this present time. That, my friend, is an established truth in God’s Word, and it will never change. Regardless of what certain theologians, denominations, and religious groups and individuals have declared, the truth of healing is NOT diminished one iota in the Scriptures. HEALING BELONGS TO YOU, CHILD OF GOD!
It was clearly stated and demonstrated throughout the Old Covenant. God’s will to heal and desire for His people to be whole is clearly demonstrated, and never more clearly than when the children of Israel made their exodus out of Egypt under the leadership of Moses after the Passover. In that case, the Scriptures stated it so plainly. The morning following the Passover, all of the people of Israel from the eldest to the youngest, those who were sick, those who had been beaten, injured or maimed by the Egyptians who evil entreated them, and those who were simply suffering from the result of an accident were completely healed. As the Scriptures declare, “there was not one infirm person among them.” They were totally healed. And even after their departure, when the rebelled against the Lord in the wilderness with the golden calf, and serpents came among them to envenomate them with their bites, when they looked on the brass serpent on the pole, they were totally healed, made will, and lived. And we can add the wonderful news to that of Malachi 3:6. There the Lord says, “I am the Lord; I change not.”
And in the New Testament we see that will even more clearly displayed in even broader measure. Mark 16:15-20 sets the stage, and John 14:12-14 drops that anchor firmly in the middle of God’s unchanging will for healing. What is so saddening to me is that there are still Christians who are so blinded as to believe that sickness or disease is a tool God used to teach His people. Oh, my dear friend, that is simply NOT true. Jesus is our Healer. Jesus, the Word made flesh,” was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and according to 1 Peter 2:24, by His stripes you “WERE” healed. It is not a promise to be given, but an established truth every believer should full accept, and then rejoice in it. Jesus is not GOING TO BE our Healer; HE IS OUR HEALER!
