KEY SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 53:4-5. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
We continue with our study on how many will God heal, or is it the will of God to heal all who come to Him?
The provisions God has made for healing the sick goes a long way to show His readiness to see men healed.
From Isaiah 53:4, the scripture reads “surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted”. The word grief means sickness in the Hebrew language and the word sorrows also means pains. Our key scripture added that “and with His stripes we are healed”. The apostle Peter referred to this verse relating it to all Christians as follows “……by whose stripes we were healed”.
Dear child of God this scripture tells us that our Lord Jesus “surely” carried our sickness and bore our pains. Who are those included in the “our”. In that same passage we learnt that the punishment for our peace as well as our iniquities have all been laid on Him. Are you included in ‘our’ or not?
Dear child of God, don’t let any experience of anyone, whether recorded in the bible or it was experienced in life. It never negates the all-time statement that says our Lord Jesus bore our sicknesses and carried away our pains.
NOTE: The fact that a man of God sinned like in the case of Samson, does not mean God uses sin to teach His children anything (lesson).
God has stated His will for everyone to take advantage of. It says Jesus has borne our sicknesses and carried our pains and by His stripes we are healed. This is His universal will and anyone who meet the terms of believing this or taking it for Himself shall enjoy the full benefits of it. He has borne it for EVERY MAN. You are included. If you will accept it with a child-like faith you would be healed of that sickness that is threatening your life. Jesus proved His readiness to heal all who came to Him, demonstrating real faith in Him.
Dear brother or sister you will not fail to receive your healing. God’s arm will be revealed to the man who would believe this report. (Isaiah 53:1)
The Lord Jesus suffered in my place to purchase my total healing. I accept this work of healing in Jesus name.
Matthew 9:5-6 ” For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house”.
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”.
