My thoughts this morning are on Divine Healing and Divine Health for mankind. Through out the Bible there are many scriptures in regards to God’s desire for us to be well both spiritually and physically.
If allowed, Satan will destroy us both spiritually and physically. When we seek God with our whole heart He has promised to hear us and meet us where we are.
It will take believing in His Son Jesus as our Lord and Savior and recieving the renewing of His Spirit in our mind, heart and body. Yes, God came to man so we can live in victory over Satan. Satan cannot reign in the life of the believer.
The born again believer has God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit on their side. There is nothing greater than our Creator in us, directing us, guiding us and leading us into all truth. As we accept the truth and walk in the truth of the Gospel we will live out the truth.
The TRUTH IS, Jesus Saves! Salvation came to mankind through Jesus Christ over 2000 years ago, forever available to whom will receive. Yes, He will heal you of your sickness, disease and has promised to help you in time of trouble. All it takes is faith in our risen Savior!
The faith of Christ healed all sickness, disease and infirmities yesterday and as a believer He resides in us to do the same today! JESUS Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever! As the scriptures states, anything is possible to those who believe! Don’t limit God!
It is a fact, as a believer, that we will live eternally with God when we leave this earth. But let me make this statement, God’s Perfect Will is to HEAL us emotionally, spiritually and physically, today, while we are here on earth. In times of trouble He is waiting to hear from us; ask, seek and knock and He will hear from you and will answer you! That is a promise!
I believe as we read His Word and obey, we are to also ask for understanding and wisdom for God will show us the answers we so much want to know in His Word.
Healing has been provided for in the atonement; for God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit has made a way for healing both spiritually and physically, it’s in the Bible.
Causes of sickness and disease is brought about by Satan. We can receive our healing both spiritually and physically when we correct the cause. Satan is a liar and deceiver. He will do whatever is in His power to deceive and destroy your spirit and body. If He can take down or destroy your spirit he will take down your physical body. So many times we do not approach the root of the matter, which in its self can be the very cause of our sickness.
In this letter and over the next 3 days in my daily thoughts we will bring forth proof through the scriptures that it is God’s perfect will to Heal…
While studying cases in the Bible regarding sickness and diseases we can conclude:
Point 1. That health was natural before sin entered… Gen. 1:26-31; Genesis 2:17 except fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat of its fruit, you will surely die.”
Point 2. That death entered through sin as part of the curse… Romans 5:12-21 When Adam sinned, sin entered the entire human race. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned…
The sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over us, but all who receive God’s wonderful, gracious gift of righteousness will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.
Yes, Adam’s one sin brought condemnation upon everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness makes all people right in God’s sight and gives them life if they will beleve and recieve.
Because one person disobeyed God, many people became sinners. But because one other person obeyed God, many people will be made right in God’s sight.
Point 3. That the first promise of redemption included healing for the body through Jesus… Genesis 3:15 From now on, you and the woman will be enemies, and your offspring and her offspring will be enemies. He will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace. He was whipped, and we were healed!
Matthew 8:16 -17 That evening many demon-possessed people were brought to Jesus. All the spirits fled when he commanded them to leave; and he healed all the sick. This fulfilled the word of the Lord through Isaiah, who said, “He took our sicknesses and removed our diseases.”
1 Peter 2:24 He personally carried away our sins in his own body on the cross so we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. You have been healed by his wounds!
Point 4. That sickness originated with and is still being propagated by Satan and his demons… Job 2:6-7 “All right, do with him as you please,” the LORD said to Satan. “But spare his life.” So Satan left the LORD’S presence, and he struck Job with a terrible case of boils from head to foot.
Job was faithful to God. In the end Job received much more through His faithfulness to God. God is faithful and so should we be faithful to God in all we do, in thought, in action and yes in life.
Matthew 4:23-24 Jesus traveled throughout Galilee teaching in the synagogues, preaching everywhere the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed people who had every kind of sickness and disease. News about him spread far beyond the borders of Galilee so that the sick were soon coming to be healed from as far away as Syria. And whatever their illness and pain, or if they were possessed by demons, or were epileptics, or were paralyzed-he healed them all.
Matthew 5:14-21 You are the light of the world-like a city on a mountain, glowing in the night for all to see. Don’t hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. Teaching about the Law,
“Don’t misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to fulfill them. I assure you, until heaven and earth disappear, even the smallest detail of God’s law will remain until its purpose is achieved. So if you break the smallest commandment and teach others to do the same, you will be the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But anyone who obeys God’s laws and teaches them will be great in the Kingdom of Heaven. “
But I warn you-unless you obey God better than the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees do, you can’t enter the Kingdom of Heaven at all! Teaching about Anger “You have heard that the law of Moses says, ‘Do not murder. If you commit murder, you are subject to judgment.”
John 10:10 The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.
Acts 10:38 And no doubt you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the Devil, for God was with him.
Point 5. That the first healing in Scripture was by prayer and that the first recorded bodily affliction was the consequence of disobeying God and that when conditions were met, healing was given in answer to prayer…
(Gen. 20:1-18). Genesis 20:7 Now return her to her husband, and he will pray for you, for he is a prophet. Then you will live. But if you don’t return her to him, you can be sure that you and your entire household will die. “Genesis 20:17 Then Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech, his wife, and the other women of the household, so they could have children.
We must bring our troubles to God in faith believing He will provide, for He is always faithful.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
