"I prayed but I didn't receive my healing. Others have prayed for me, and I got nothing. It must not be the will of God that I be healed."
Have you ever heard that nonsense out of people's mouths. or have you ever said things like that?
It is always God's will that people be healed, regardless of the failure of some to receive from the Lord. God is offering healing and deliverance to all that will receive it. It's not hard either. Jesus said healing is easy. Did you know that?
Which is easier: to say to this paralyzed man, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’? (Mark 2:9 NIV)
Some have the idea that getting forgiveness from sins is easy but that for some reason healing is hard. Not according to Jesus! One is as easy as the other!
Do you believe that your sins are forgiven today? If you don't then you need Jesus in your life and His cleansing and forgiving power applied to your life. (Romans 3:23-25, 1John 1:7-9) When you received His forgiveness it was an act of faith based on His Word. You believed it with your heart and said it with your mouth. (Romans 10:9) It wasn't hard. It was easy!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalms 103:2-5 NKJV)
The same can be said for healing, It is just as easy to be healed as it was to be forgiven of your sin or sins. These benefits are not in a list from easy to hard! Healing from every disease is available and ready to be received. I'm quoting to you from the older Covenant of God in the book of Psalms, and not from the better Covenant established upon better promises according to the New Testament! (Hebrews 8:6) This better Covenant was prophesied in numerous places in the Hebrew Bible.
Isaiah 53:4 and 5 deal with this better covenant that was established through the awesome sacrifice of Jesus.
Yet he himself bore our sicknesses, and he carried our pains; but we in turn regarded him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted. but he was pierced because of our rebellion, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on him, and we are healed by his wounds.(Isaiah 53:4, 5 CSB)
Often people, ministers, and even scholars demonstrate their utter disdain for healing and the miraculous in the Bible when they say that this healing and suffering sickness and pains for us in Isaiah 53 was only referring to spiritual healing. Jesus did bear our griefs and sorrows as translated in the King James version when He took for us the chastisement of our peace. Both those Hebrew words translated in the King James version and others as "griefs" and "sorrows" are correctly translated pain and disease in more accurate translations. See the Christian Standard Bible quoted above. See also NET, Amplified Classic edition, JUB, LEB, NASB, YLT, and some others. These versions got it right.
I am happy to be able to kick over a sacred religious cow! We have a Holy Spirit interpretation of Isaiah 53:4 in the Gospel of Matthew, and it's NOT referring to "spiritual healing" at all! It is quoting the verse as referring to Jesus' ministry of healing and delivering the sick and demon oppressed.
16 When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, 17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses.” (Matthew 8:16, 17 NKJV)
There it is! It's a Holy Spirit inspired interpretation by Matthew of Isaiah 53:4. It was specifically referring to physical infirmities and sicknesses, and even to deliverance for the demon oppressed or possessed. It was not referring to spiritual healing or deliverance, unless you want to classify the demon possessed as spiritual. That would be a stretch because demon spirits in those cases of demon possession or oppression are always doing something damaging or destructive to the human body and mind, everything from lunacy, cutting or harming themselves, to some physical ailment. These things are clearly taught in the Gospel accounts. See for example Matthew 12:22; Mark 5:1-10, 9:17, 18, 25.
Deliverance from demons and their activities were a part of what Jesus did in His ministry. Sicknesses and disease are ALWAYS the work of the devil directly or indirectly, and healing is needed.
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. (Acts 10:38 NKJV)
Not one single person Jesus ever ministered healing and deliverance to were ever oppressed or made sick by God. They were all oppressed of the devil. Notice how sickness is called here the oppression of the devil, and healing is brought by the power of the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Yes, it is always the anointing that destroys the yoke of bondage! (Isaiah 10:27 KJV) When God is present in a Holy Spirit manifestation, sickness and demons must leave. The verse said that healing and deliverance were wrought because God was with Jesus. Well, He is with us today, and He is IN us through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
Deliverance from demons and healing often go hand in hand. We saw it in Matthew 8:16 and 17, and you can look up these Scripture references in the Gospels: Matthew 4:23, 24, 10:1, 8; Luke 9:1.
Get ready to be healed and deliver as you hear and receive the Word in this podcast. No sickness can stay, and all demons must bow to the authority of Jesus in His Name. (Mark 16:17, 18; Philippians 2:9-11)
Be mightily blessed, healed, and delivered TODAY! Jesus has NEVER changed. He is still the same healer and deliverer as He was in His earthly ministry. The only difference is that Jesus is not physically here, BUT He sent the Holy Spirit, who can be everywhere and anywhere, to minister POWER through His people today. (Acts 1:8) The Holy Spirit will get you right where you are. His anointing to set you free will be transmitted through this recorded message and through these written words. No need to be in a meeting to receive your healing or deliverance. You can get it right now! Receive in Jesus' mighty name! Be healed and delivered right now!
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 NKJV)
