Q86 “how do I live healed?”

We read in Isaiah 53:4 “Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows…”

Isaiah was looking about 700 years down the tunnel of time at the crucifixion of Christ, just as we look back about 2000 years down the tunnel of time at it. In that event in history the prophesy of Isaiah took place and became a fact, for us it is now past-tense. Our healing, our righteousness, our provision were all satisfied at that point in time. Christ is not doing any more work toward accomplishing these outcomes today, they were fully resolved on the cross 2000 years ago.

So the question for us today is “how do I live in the healing that Christ provided 2000 years ago?” or to put it another way “why wasn’t the evidence of Christs work fully present in my life at the moment I received my salvation?”

The answer is simple – it’s because we have been taught to believe that the  outcomes that Christ accomplished on the cross are being drip-fed to us as God determines on any given day…or, we have been taught that Christ did the job 2000 years ago, but we don’t get the benefits unless we tick the boxes and somehow attract God’s favour today.

I’m here to tell you that is bunkum “Christ completed all righteousness, he stormed hell and released us from the captor, and then He made His home in the heart of every believer and brought every outcome of the cross with Him”. He didn’t pop in to our hearts for a quick cup of tea and promise to return with His goodies later if we demonstrate our commitment, NO – “He will never leave us or forsake us”– He is in to stay and He doesn’t need to dial-out for a blessing, He brought the full package with Him.

It is ludicrous to think that Christ has made his home in us, but he forgot to bring his hard won accomplishments with him, yet that is the Christianity that most of us grew up with – and as a result most Christians don’t know how to live healed.

We live healed by believing that Christ ‘is everything and did everything’ that he said about himself. We stake our life on it, our entire existence hinges on it being true. We won’t budge no matter what happens and what evidence we see to the contrary.

Peter said to the beggar at the temple ‘I have no silver or gold, but I will give you what I do have (present tense), in the name of Jesus get up and walk’. Peter knew that Christ was in him, the great healer had moved in.

And now the healer lives in us…

    About 8 years ago I was prompted to send my daughter Chasity to the truth behind Mark 16 about the signs that shall follow them that believe…Little Tristen (my grandson and future Devil fighter) was born deaf. I trusted the words of Jesus “The Healer” when he said these signs shall follow them that believe, they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. So I encouraged those parents to trust the Healer, Jesus Christ who physically heals and restores. When those concerned parents placed their hands on that child whose ears were deaf from birth the “miracle of healing” went through that child right on the spot. Jesus “healed” those deaf ears and restored them with His virtue and power. Tristen hears perfectly today. Glory! By His stripes little Tristen was healed. God promised healing to that physical body. He cured the lepers, He rose the dead, He opened blind eyes and deaf ears. By His stripes…By His stripes He bore our sicknesses…by His stripes he was healed…little Tristen is healed today! Glory to the healer! He’s alive! He heals those who are sick! These signs shall follow

    Mat. 8:16, 17…and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

    Praise God
    Before Christ, healing came by virtue of human obedience to commandments of the Lord in Exodus 15:26 , “If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you.”
    When Christ came, He fulfilled prophecy Isaiah 53:4-5 ” Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” . Despite symptoms we see, Christ’ sacrifice has provided perfect healing for body, soul and mind. Nothing is impossible to Him. Thank you Jesus.

      Hi E,
      the following is the advert that appeared in Australia under my post entitled ‘how do I live healed’. Very frustrating that something so opposite can clash with the truth!! G
