Doctors! Who needs doctors! (hint: When we sin…)
And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer.”
For, “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
The word “saved” is SOZO in Greek. It means:
1. to save, keep safe and sound, to rescue from danger or destruction
a. one (from injury or peril)
1. to save a suffering one (from perishing), i.e. one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to health
2. to preserve one who is in danger of destruction, to save or rescue
b. to save in the technical biblical sense
We can have divine healing too! It’s part of our salvation (same word) and promised in Isaiah 53:5, 1 Peter 2:24, again, by faith through Jesus.
1 Peter 2:24
who his own self bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed.
But he was pierced for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment that brought our peace was on him; and by his wounds we are healed.
Look at what Jesus Himself said:
Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way. Let it be done for you as you have believed.” His servant was healed in that hour.
AS YOU BELIEVE! The same as in eternal salvation!
We have all the promises of God as Yes and Amen! 2 Cor 1:20. So why do we not receive our healing with these promises?
1 Peter 1:16
because it is written, “You shall be holy; for I am holy.”
and if we are not walking and abiding in Him, then
If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
See, many do not believe because they are not witnessing it for themselves because though they ask they don’t receive because they are living in sin, in doubt, and without faith. Yes, it’s that simple.
You ask, and don’t receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it for your pleasures.
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. Sin gives the enemy legal right to harass you and steal from you. By walking in the Spirit of truth in faith, you can claim the promises of God and take your promises by force from the enemy.
From the days of John the Baptizer until now, the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.
If you do not believe these verses, then how can you believe in eternal salvation?
