Is God's will healing?
Surely the answer is YES!
God dealt with sickness and illnesses in the great work that our Lord Jesus performed on the cross for us, in the book of (Isaiah 53: 4-5) he tells us:
He certainly took our diseases and suffered our pains; and we felt him scourged, wounded by God and dejected. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was crushed for our sins; the punishment of our peace was upon him, and by his wound we were healed.
It does not say that we may be healed, at some time, in the future NO!
The Bible says that we are healed, it is past time and this means that healing is a REALITY right now. The word of God establishes what we were already made, he says: "You were healed" that is past time and not future.
In Matthew 8: 16-17 he says: And when night came, they brought to him many who were demon-possessed; and with the word he cast out the demons, and healed all the sick so that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled, when he said: He himself took our diseases, and carried our diseases.
Also in 1 Peter 2:24 the word of God points us … Who himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we being dead to sins, live to righteousness, and by whose wound you were healed.
Jesus was fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah "by his wound we were healed" according to the word of God, Jesus not only died and rose again for our sins, but he also died and rose again because of our illnesses and ailments, healing belongs to us just as SALVATION belongs to us.
In Psalm 103: 3 it says: … That he is the one who forgives all your iniquities, the one who heals all ailments. That is the will of God healing for all your ailments. The reason why many believers are not getting the best of heaven is this:
(James 1: 6-7) But ask with FAITH, not doubting anything; because he who doubts is similar to the wave of the sea, which is dragged by the wind and thrown from one part to another.
Do not think, then, whoever does that will receive anything from the Lord. The double-minded man is inconstant in all his ways.
This means that there are many believers who are (half in faith and half out of faith) so to speak.
Because there are still believers who have not experienced divine healing?
Because they have not yet been fully healed inside, in their soul?
An important role in this plays the church, we have, as a church to reach the needy, today we see in many believing churches with:
All this is to be under pressure, people oppressed by the enemy, wounded the church is full of people who have needs and require attention, there are many people with a broken heart and these people are not properly ministered, only told " believe in God "" let the Spirit of God take care of you. "" If you had faith you would not have got into this mess. "
But Jesus said that we should minister to the brokenhearted (Luke 4: 17-19). Jesus said that we should set the oppressed free. That is why the church exists, to minister to those who are tired and hurt, the church must be a refuge and help.
Other dangers that exist in the church today, is that many Christians have allowed their PRIORITIES to become others and not GOD, we need to return to the basics of the word as DEDICATION and COMMITMENT to GOD and not to emphasize things .
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all things will be added to you (Matthew 6:33), In other words stop worrying about things (Auto, house, property) these things will take care of themselves if we place in the LINE with GOD and his kingdom, seek first the kingdom of God, is to get people to be saved and minister the needs, and the wounds of others.
The reason why many Christians are not getting things to be added to them, is because they are looking for things first and not the kingdom of GOD their priorities are reversed.
Brothers, it is time for us to minister to the brokenhearted! Let us do something! We must help others in need when it is in your hands to help someone in need, do it, we need to be sensitive, and give of ourselves (Prov.3: 27) Church is not enough to tell a brother who is going through a difficult situation "well just believe God and he will see that you get it right" NO! We should think that next to us, there are brothers, people who are hurt and crying out for help , maybe nobody knows about their needs.
But if you learn to be SENSIBLE to the needs of others, you will know and be able to minister to them, that is what the Christian life is about, to do something for someone else, Jesus while he was in the earth reflected that principle he did not come to be ministered but to minister to others, their time and attention were dedicated to meet the needs of others, we have to be imitators of what JESUS did and is doing today, in this world that lacks Christian principles and values.
Let's not live according to the lies of the enemy that says:
"We do not know, we do not have, therefore we can not.
We can do everything through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13)
