“..who himself carried up to the Cross our sins in His body and offered himself there as on an altar, doing this in order that we, having died with respect to our sins, might live with respect to righteousness, by means of whose bleeding stripe [the word “stripe” is in the singular here; a picture of our Lord’s back after the scourging, one mass of raw, quivering flesh with no skin remaining, trickling with blood] you were healed.” I Peter 2:24 Kenneth Wuest Translation
“the One who saved us and divinely summoned us in the sphere of a holy summons, not according to our works but according to His own private purpose and grace which [grace] was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.” 2 Timothy 1:9 Kenneth Wuest Translation
Healing, we all need it at one time or another and thank God it has been provided for us through Jesus Christ. When you think about it, Jesus was beaten and received those stripes even before He ever went to the Cross. The Word declares by His stripe we were healed. As a believer you need to know that healing is not just available but that healing BELONGS to you. You also need to know that healing is a part of GRACE Who is Jesus Christ. What did you do to earn healing? Nothing!!! Think about this, when Jesus was here on Earth The Word of God says Jesus went around healing ALL who were oppressed of the devil. Notice The Word did not say He healed all the people who were saved. Notice The Word did not say He healed only the people who had been good or were not in strife with their husband or wife. It says ALL!!! That is GRACE. That is unmerited, undeserved favor which comes from God the Father HImself through Jesus Christ. I want you to keep that in mind, that healing is by GRACE!!!! You simply believe and receive.
But if you are a believer, there is something else that you need to know about healing and grace. 2 Timothy 1:9 says that God the Father called us according to His Own private purpose and GRACE. Now here is the key, this GRACE was given to us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time. Please listen to me as I make this next statement. Since GRACE was GIVEN us in Christ BEFORE time began that means that there has never been a time that you have NOT BEEN HEALED!!! You were given the Grace of healing before time began. You are ALWAYS and have ALWAYS been healed!!! A pain, a symptom, a disease does not change your healed status because your healing was before time so when these things arise ‘in time’ they cannot affect your healed status.
For by the grace have you been saved in time past completely, through faith, with the result that your salvation persists through present time Ephesians 2:8 Kenneth Wuest Translation
Saved completely means spirit, soul and body in time past and that has the present result that you are IN a state of salvation that persist through present time. That state of salvation includes welfare, prosperity, deliverance, preservation, salvation, safety. When you believe God’s Word then time and the things that happen in time do not matter and do not have final say and authority, only God’s Word. KNOW THAT YOU ARE ALWAYS HEALED!!! And the truth that you KNOW makes you free.
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
