He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness; you have been healed by His wounds. Peter 2:24 Holman Christian Standard Bible
I want to encourage you to take sometime this week and think about this truth. Do you realize that every sin you ever committed and every punishment for those sins including every sickness and disease and all lack, that Jesus already bore those things for you at the cross? This is why the scripture says above that we having died to sins should live to righteousness. It goes even further to say that the punishment, those inflicted wounds on Jesus paid the price for your complete and total healing and health for all time. Many believers believe that when they die and go to Heaven, once they are there they will then experience no more sickness, no more pain, no more sorrow at that time and in that place. And they are right.
What they don’t realize is that the very same Jesus Who has secured the means for them to be sickness free and pain free and lack free in Heaven never said or expected them to wait to get to Heaven to receive or experience that eternal inheritance that His death provided for them. Jesus said in one of His prayers, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.” However things are in Heaven that’s how they are supposed to be on the Earth as it relates to the believer. That is our inheritance and that is the Kingdom Jesus told us to seek first in Matthew 6:33 and Luke 12:31. You get an inheritance when a person dies and Jesus has already died and is raised. All that Jesus died to provide for you is yours RIGHT NOW!!! You receive it like you do everything else from Him, by faith. “Well nobody can expect to live like that on Earth!” Jesus did! Never sick one day of His life until He took our sin and sickness. And His Word declares that, “As He is, so are we in this world.”
But he was wounded because of our crimes,
crushed because of our sins;
the disciplining that makes us whole fell on him,
and by his bruises* we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 Complete Jewish Bible
Take notice, “the disciplining that makes us whole fell on Him”. What it took to provide Your wholeness, your shalom, your completeness, your never being sick again, fell on Him. He already bore it. If your spouse got out of the car and went and filled the car up with gas and paid for it, would you then turn around and head in to the clerks window to pay for the same gas twice? Of course not! There is something called the law of Double Jeopardy. It is a second prosecution for the same offense after acquittal or conviction or multiple punishments for same offense. This same law applies to the spirit world. As a matter of truth it came out of the spirit world. Jesus has already been tried, convicted and punished for every single one of your sins and crimes past, present and future. Some people find that hard to believe but if you really think about it, unless you are over 2000 years old, all your sins were future sins. He was punished with sickness, with disease, with lack, with The Father forsaking Him so that we would never be punished with any of those things ever again. The Father will never forsake us. Now if you allow it then the devil is just like any criminal. He does not care whether something is illegal or legal he will violate the law if he is allowed to do it. So are you going to say, “Come on in, break in my house (my body, or your families body)” or are you going to get your spiritual twelve gauge and not just cock it but blow his butt right back to hell where he and everything attached to him belongs?
So what are you taking or allowing that Jesus already bore? Take some inventory and then do some spring cleaning. Remember this confession and truth:
“I cannot be punished for any of the things Jesus was punished for and I cannot be punished with any of the things Jesus was punished with!!!”
Remember you are not fighting for victory you are fighting from a place of victory already given to you by Jesus Christ. And that is what makes you more than a conqueror!!!! Amen!
All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!
