Christians in many ways have begun to accept things in their bodies that Jesus paid for at the cross. In 1 Corinthians 11:29 “…not discerning the Lord’s body.” Paul talks about rightly discerning the Lord’s Body, that is what this page is dedicated to looking at that Body and what Jesus paid for all of us. Divine Healing or God provided Healing is not a new concept, or only a New Testament concept. If you look in the Bible all the way back in Exodus 15:26 “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I [am] the LORD who heals you” God promised the Israelites that if they would obey Him they would be disease free. In Numbers 21:5-9 “And the people spoke against God and against Moses: “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For [there is] no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread.” So the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and many of the people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD and against you; pray to the LORD that He take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery [serpent], and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.” the Israelites were grumbling against God and walking in disobedience, but God gave them away to be freed from their sin and to be healed. He told Moses to make a bronze serpent and lift it up and all they looked to it would be healed. Seems like a simple thing to do to receive healing, but that’s the way God does things. We try to make things so hard that they become unattainable in our minds.
God also provided healing for you and I in our lives today, and again it is such a simple plan that we have a hard time receiving it because it is to easy.
Isaiah 53:4-5 says this: “Surely He has borne our grief’s, And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” Here in Isaiah it is telling of things to come after Jesus is crucified and raised from the dead. In 2 Peter 2:24 “who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness — by whose stripes you were healed.” It does not say maybe healed or might be healed it says we were healed, past tense.
If I go down to the saddle shop and pay for a saddle, and were to come over to your house and tell you that all you had to do, is go down and pick up that saddle and it was yours, you have a choice to make. That choice right now in your mind seems pretty simple. Do I go down and get the saddle, or do I just let it sit there and wish I had it? Often, when we need healing, we might say or wish that God would heal me. Oh God would you please heal me. God why won’t you heal me? We just read where it says by His stripes I was healed!
Lets look at Mark 11:22-23 “So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Jesus said to receive, “Have faith in God.” Let’s stop there for a minute and look at the meaning of faith, because that can be the stumbling block to our receiving.
In the Greek, the NewTestament was written in the meaning of faith was this; Conviction, confidence, trustworthiness, and persuasion.
The Strong’s says in the New Testament, setting faith is the divinely implanted principle of inward confidence, assurance, trust, and reliance in God and all that He says. Many times where believers go wrong is the faith comes from their ability, it doesn’t say that at all. The ability has already been furnished by God. All I must do is accept it, my confidence is in God not me. Faith means confidence. Worrel’s Translation says it this way “Have the Faith of God” That makes it easier to receive can you see God doubting? If I apply the faith of God then it becomes easy to see the answer.
Back now to Mark and what Jesus was saying “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast in to the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things that he says will be done, he will have what ever he says”.Did you ever take these verses and try to apply them in a way that you knew wasn’t God’s will or intended use for them? What you do when you try the Word in a place that we know is not God’s will, is that we set ourselves up to fail, when we fail we hurt our faith.
It is God’s will for His people to walk in Divine Health! When the enemy try’s to put sickness on God’s people they don’t need to ask if it is His will, or pray ” God heal me”. We have the God given right to speak to that sickness, that it be removed and this is what will happen. Look at I John 5:14-15 “Now this is the confidence that we have in HIM, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we KNOW that we have the petitions that we have ask of Him.”John did not say we might have them, he said this is the confidence that we have in HIM. or this is the FAITH that we have in GOD.
We have the God given right, God paid for our right to walk in complete and total heath. If God paid for it and God then gave it to us, then it IS His Will for us to have it.
It is just as simple as going down to pick up that already paid for saddle, just go and get it. See if I go get that saddle and don’t believe that it’s out in the tack room, all I have to do is go out and look at it, then I can see I do have possession of it. With healing all I have to do is look in The Word and I can see that I have possession of it. I’ll finish with this Romans 10:17 says “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by The Word of God.” So faith or confidence, comes by going and looking, and seeing that you DO have the right to possess DIVINE HEALTH and so you see you do have the right to be healed.
