GOD'S WILL FOR HEALING
"If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you." Exodus 15:26
Today there is a great controversy in the church and in the world about whether God heals or not! Its not hard to understand because of the lack of sound biblical doctrine and the rise of medical science in the last 150 years. People have drifted away from the promises of God and have put their trust in man!
This question always seems to arise concerning healing, Is it God's will? Well, is it? The answer is yes! Because He has written His will down in His word and left us His will and testament, explaining our inheritance. It is not a matter of will but our God-given right as new creations to receive healing from the Lord Jesus who has borne our sicknesses and carried our pain by the stripes on His back.
He gave His life as a sacrifice for us to whom the punishment was due and redeemed us with His own blood that was shed in seven specific places, giving us a complete deliverance from sin, sickness and eternal damnation. So with that said, healing is not a matter of God's will, it is our God-given inheritance to appropriate what we have already been given!
Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses) and carried our sorrows; (pain) yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten (struck down) by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded (pierced through) for our transgressions, He was bruised (bled inside His body) for our iniquities; (generational curse) the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes (39 blows that cut in) we are healed. Isaiah 53:4,5 AMEN!
