KEY SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 53:1 “Who hath believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?”
We continue with our discussion on divine health.
The book of Isaiah 53 is a classic prophecy of the atoning work of our Lord Jesus. In Isaiah 53:1 the prophet wrote “who has believed our report, and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” The scripture informs us of a report that if anyone is to believe he would receive the arm of the Lord (the power of the Lord) being revealed to him or her.
Isaiah 53:4 reads “Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows, yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted”. Let’s consider the meaning of some of these words in the Hebrews language from which this scripture was translated. The word borne means to lift, carry, take away. The next word to look at is griefs, which is “choly” in Hebrew and it means sickness. The next word is ‘carried’ which means “bear a load”. The last word to look at is sorrows, which is “makob” in Hebrew it is translated as pain or sorrows. Matthew 8″17 translated this very scripture as “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet saying “Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses”. The prophet stated in verse 5 that “But he was wounded for our transgression, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with His stripes we are healed”.
Apostle Peter who was a witness to the death of Jesus and knowing it’s implication as revealed by the prophet Isaiah wrote in 1st Peter 2:24 “……by whose stripes you were healed”. Please note this Isaiah said you “are” healed and Peter wrote you were healed because it was past. Your healing is already settled and completed.
Our Lord Jesus has already borne our diseases and carried our pains. It is up to you to know that it was already done. In the eyes of God you are healed. This is your provision for divine health. In the eyes of God and before the court of heaven it is written and established about you that you are healed.
You don’t have to accept any symptom of any disease because before God you are well and healed. Stand on the divine provision stated in black and white that you are healed.
Thank you Heavenly Father that you have paid for my health through our Lord Jesus Christ. I cannot be sick because it is already settled in Jesus name.
1 Peter 2:24 ” 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”.
2 Peter 1:4 ” Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
