KEY SCRIPTURE: John 5:3 KJV” In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.”
At the pool of Bethesda, there were a camp of sick folks who waited for the moving of the water. The scripture says at a certain time of the year, an angel gets into the water and stirs, so that anyone who first falls into it was healed from whatever sickness that troubled or tormented him. It was so called the house of mercy, because of the healing that came freely to all who would first land into the water.
Beloved although this was a great relief and showed mercy to those who would be fast enough to fall into the water, by the great sacrifice of our master Jesus, we have a limitless house of Mercy. Now everyone, anywhere can obtain this great mercy of healing. This is a universal house of mercy. In Isaiah 53:1 the prophet said ” Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?” The arm of the Lord, that is the healing grace of God would come on anyone who would believe the report of the Lord. What is the report. The report says in verse 5 that, “…by His stripes ye are healed “Apostle Peter also said the same thing in the following way “….by whose stripes you were healed”
Apostle Peter’s statement revealed that, it was a concluded matter. He said by His stripes ye were healed. This is a settled matter. It is up to you to claim your healing or better still to possess your already settled healing. If you would believe that Jesus has indeed carried away your sicknesses the power of God, or the hand of God would be released to you.
How do you take hold of the mercy of healing;
1. Thank the Lord for giving Jesus to take away all our diseases.
2. Declare to your body that our Lord Jesus has healed us by the stripes He bore and so you are healed.
3. Rebuke the devil to take his hands off your body in Jesus’ name.
4. Thank the Lord for your healing.
5. From now keep thanking the Lord for healing you.
6. Refuse to consider any symptoms that may be showing up.
7. Continue looking at the word as you thank the Lord for healing.
