"Healing for Today?"
Here is just some thoughts and scriptures about healing.
David said, “I cried unto the Lord & He healed me”. Ps. 30:2
Ps. 107:20 He sent His word & healed them.
Ps. 103:2-3 All His benefits, includes healing.
Mal. 4:2 He will arise with healing in His wings.
When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: 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.
A few people healed:
1) David cried unto the Lord & He healed him. (Ps. 30:2)
2) Those who fear Him, keep His covenant, & does His commandments (will get the benefits in Ps. 103)
3) He healed for the sake of those who brought the sick unto him.
Centurion’s servant = Matt. 8:5-1
Peter’s Mother-in-law = Matt. 8:14-15
The rulers daughter = Matt. 9:18-26
The friends = Mark 2:4-12
4) Jesus could not do mighty works because of their unbelief, you must believe.
Matt. 23:25 He healed all who came unto Him.
Matt. 8:1-4 He healed the Leper by His word - He said, “I will”.
Matt. 8:15-16 He cast out demons & healed them.
Mat. 9:1-8 He healed & forgave the Paralyzed man.
Matt. 9:32-33 Healed the dumb man.
Matt. 12:15 Healed them all.
Matt. 20:34 &22-23, Healed the blind.
There are many, many more examples.
And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I [am] the LORD that healeth thee.
His word is health to us:
My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
For they [are] life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
Why does it say in Is. 53:5 we are healed and in 1 Peter 2:24 We were healed.
In Is 53:5 it is a now healing. In the old testament they had to do sacrifices regularly. It could never put healing in the past or behind them. Because Jesus had not yet come. BUT...
After Jesus came now we can say:
We are healed. Past, it is done & always will be that way. Today can’t change what Jesus did. No more sacrifice for it. “IT IS FINISHED”. (We must receive it)
Malachi 3:6 “I am the Lord, I change not”
What He did, He will do again. Rom 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.
Satan is the originator of sickness. Job 2:7, Luke 13:16, Acts 10:38
But what about after Jesus was off the earth?
Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, [being] the ninth [hour].
And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;
Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.
And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
And he took him by the right hand, and lifted [him] up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.
To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid [them] on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
There came also a multitude [out] of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed [with them]: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.
And when he had called unto [him] his twelve disciples, he gave them power [against] unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
There are many other scriptures.
YES, HEALING IS FOR TODAY!!!!
