James 5:14-15 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.
Most Believer’s would never doubt for a moment that it is Gods will for them to be saved. We know God wants to save every person that comes to Him because the Word of God tells us so. 2 Peter 3:9 that “God is not willing that any should perish”, Romans 10:13 says “For all who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” However, when you question them on Gods will for them to be Healed, some hestiate to say yes. Here are 3 Scriptual reasons that it is Gods will to heal you today!
1. It is a part of our covenant
Healing was provided for in the Old Covenant in many different ways. When the Children of Israel were being attacked and killed by poisonous snakes, God told Moses to put a brazen serpant on a poll. When they looked to the serpant they were healed, made whole and delivered. Jesus said in John 3 “As Moses lifted the serpant in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up” When we look to Jesus, we are healed, made whole and delivered. Under the Old Covenant, when they ate of the lamb which represented Christ, the Bible says there was not one sick nor feeble one among them! Hebrews 8:6 says that we have a “Better covenant based off of better promises!” If healing was not available in our covenant, it would not be a better one or have better promises. If God healed under the Old, how much more under the New!
2. Sickness and Disease are Demonic Oppression
Acts 10:38 says, “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” This verse shows us that God is not the author of sickness and disease. Never claim ownership to pain of an illness. Never say “My Arthritis” or “My migraines”, they’re not yours! Sickness and Disease are a type of demonic bondage, and thank God the Anointing DESTROYS the yoke of bondage! The Presence and Power of God DESTORYS sickness and disease!
3. Redeemed from Sickness and Disease!
Jesus was nailed to the cross and took on the curse for us. Part of the Curse was Sickness and Disease. The Bible says in Galatians 3 that “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law” We are redeemed from the power of sickness and disease. The devil can try to threaten us or even attack us with it, but we have a shield of faith and a sword which is the Word of God. We can resist devil and he will flee! The “Greater One”, the Holy Spirit, lives on the inside of us. And if the same Spirit who rose Christ from the dead lives in us, He will quicken and make alive our mortal bodies! LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO!
