"Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem,
bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits,
and they were all healed. NOTE - Even after
Jesus had been cruxified and rose again, and we ascended into heaven,
we see the very same work that Jesus performed still taking place through
the hands of His disciples, and with the very same intensity - all being
healed. And why not? Hebrews 13:8 tells us that Jesus Christ is the same
yesterday, today and forever!
Because Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant (verse
22), "Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost
those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession
for them." Take a look at this scripture in the Amplified Version:
"Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely,
perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God
through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede
with Him and intervene for them." NOTE - It is important
to remember that the word "save" is the Greek work sozo which
literally means to heal, preserve, save, do well, be (make) whole. It
means deliverance in the present as well as in the future or in eternity,
physical as well as spiritual. Jesus used this word to denote healing
of the body as well as forgiveness of sins. Always translate this word
as "save - heal" when you come across it in the Word. Now you
know where we came up with the domain name for our website www.savedhealed.com
"Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man
[Jesus] is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him everyone
who believes is justified [declared righteous] from
all things from which you could not be justified by the
law of Moses." NOTE - I love this. From now on you need to train yourself to translate
the word "justified" as declared righteous. That is the literal
Greek translation. This will really help you when you read the book of
Romans. You can remember it by: just-if-i'd never sinned.
That is righteousness - to be in right standing with God.. 2 Corinthians
5:7 tells us plainly that as born-again believer's we have become the
righteousness of God in Christ. Because of the forgiveness of sins, through
His shed blood, we are redeemed and declared righteous from ALL THINGS
which we could not be declared righteous, apart from His redemptive work.This
is our position in Christ and it's more than just spiritual, the effects
of it pertain to the soul, the body and our life here on this earth.
"But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus
from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also
give life to your mortal (Natural, Earthly) bodies through His
Spirit who dwells in you." NOTE - Take a close
look at this Scripture, this is talking about your body that you have
now, not the one you're going to receive one day in heaven! Allow the
Lord to impart His life into you by placing faith in His Word. Begin to
praise Him for this promise.
4:10-11 "Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus (which
was for our victory), that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest
in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus'
sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal
flesh." - Bodily Health!!!
"Our Father in heaven, hallowed be
your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on Earth as it is in heaven."
NOTE - Jesus always prays the will of God, and He prays that the will of God
be done here on the earth just as it is in heaven. People in heaven are
not sick, so we can clearly see it is God's will that we also be free
from sickness and disease.
(If a believer honors God and lives according to the Word, He says...)
"That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children,
in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the
days of heaven upon the earth." NOTE - God's plan is that His children begin to experience the inheritance
of the heavenly life while here on the earth. We're already His children,
and we have been given special rights. Learning to walk in the Word of
God, brings the benefits of the Word of God into a living, functioning
"And the LORD will take away from you all sickness,
and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which
you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you." NOTE - If this was a promise to God's covenant people under the Old Covenant,
how much more does this benefit of health pertain to us today; as we are
under the New Covenant which is based upon the precious Blood of Jesus
"He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all,
how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?" NOTE
- Surely this includes healing!!!
Mark 16:17-18 "And these signs shall follow
them that believe; In my name . . . they shall lay hands on the sick,
and they shall recover." NOTE - Find someone who believes God's Word regarding healing and have them
lay hands on you and pray for you in faith believing. James 5:16 says
"that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they
shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary,
and they shall walk and not faint." NOTE - The word "wait" in this verse implies a positive action of
hope, based on knowing that the Word of God is a true fact and that it
will soon come to pass - waiting with earnest expectation!
"Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers
him out of them all."
"For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your
wounds, saith the Lord."
"Surely He hath borne our griefs (Lit. sicknesses) and carried our
sorrows (Lit. pains) 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 by His
stripes we are healed." NOTE
- The last part of this verse,"by His stripes we are healed,"
is not talking about spiritual healing, as some have taught, but definite
physical healing. God does not "heal" a human spirit, he recreates
it. He does however, heal our bodies and minds. This clearly shows that
your healing was paid for at the cross!
"Behold, I will bring you health and cure, and I will cure you, and
will reveal unto you the abundance of peace and truth."
"Again I say to you that if two of you agree on Earth concerning
anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven." NOTE - The prayer of agreement is powerful - have someone agree with you for
Mark 11:24 "Therefore I say to you
whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them,
and you will have them." Surely this includes healing!
"Thy light shall break forth as the morning, and thy health shall
spring forth speedily; and thy righteousness shall go before thee: the
glory of the Lord shall be thy rear guard."
Psalm 41:3 (Amplified Version)
"The Lord will sustain, refresh, and strengthen him on his bed of
languishing; all his bed You
[O Lord] will turn, change, and transform in his illness." NOTE
- I love how the Amplified Bible brings out the fullness of meaning in
the original language. The phrase "all his bed" in the Hebrew,
has the meaning of; all that he is afflicted with, or all of his condition
that he is lying with" It is always His will to turn, change and
transform our mourning into dancing - Psalm 30:11
5:23 "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your
whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless [sound, complete
and intact] unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."
NOTE - It is very clear in this passage that wholeness, wellness, and health
is for the complete make-up of man, spiritual, mental, and physical.
1 Peter 2:24
"Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we,
having died to sins, might live for righteousness-- by whose stripes you
were healed." NOTE
- Past tense "You were healed". Jesus paid it all
for your total deliverance - spirit, soul and body!
"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who
forgiveth all thine iniquities; who heals all thy diseases" NOTE
- Notice it doesn't say some, it says all!
It also states that healing is one of the benefits that belongs to the
believer along with the benefit of having our sin forgiven. See our article
Two Gifts of Grace
3 John 2
"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou
mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."
"Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be
saved: for thou art my praise." NOTE - Once a person finally sees that healing is a finished work along with
salvation, paid for at the same time with the same healing Blood, then
you can get excited about this verse saying; "you did it Lord for
me, then according to this verse I will agree and say I will have healing
just as I have salvation, it's mine NOW!"
James 5:14-15 "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."
Use Your Authority and Resist
I say unto you, whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven:
and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
NOTE - The word "bind" means to forbid, the word "loose"
means to let go or to allow to go free. Do not allow sickness, pain or
disease run free in your body, bind it or forbid it to stay there any
longer because of your rights as a believer.. Put your foot down and command
it to leave in the Name of Jesus!!!
John 10:10 "The thief (satan) does not come except to
steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may
have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
NOTE - Here we see the desired will of the Lord for every believer, that we
experience abundant life. According to this verse He came for this very
purpose. We also see clearly that it is not God who afflicts us. The word
here for life is the Greek word "zoe." One highly respected
commentator describes the true meaning of the word in this verse as: "life
being the highest and best of which Christ is." In light of that
meaning, you can easily see the wonderful gift of life the Lord wants
for each of us. Sickness and disease are truly not in His plan for us,
simply because He has none to give.
Luke 10:19 "Behold, I give unto you power (authority) to tread on serpents
and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall
by any means hurt you." NOTE
- This is an exciting verse as Jesus said
He has given us authoritive power over ALL, not some of the enemy! Command
Satan to take his hands off of you. Command sickness and disease to leave
you now in the Name of Jesus.
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am
your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my
righteous right hand."
"No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
and every tongue which rises against you in judgment YOU shall condemn.
This is the heritage (birthright) of the servants of the LORD, and their
righteousness is from Me," says the LORD." NOTE
- Sickness is judging you falsely, it is
your birthright to live in health. You condemn it, with the Word of God,
and command it to leave your body.
You Are An Overcomer
Through Jesus Christ!
1 John 4:4
". . . . greater is he that is in you, than
he that is in the world."
1 John 5:4
"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the
world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith." NOTE - In John 17:14 Jesus states that we as believer's are not of the world.
Sickness, disease and failure belong to the world. As a believer, we are
given the right to overcome that which comes against us by holding fast
to the Word of God. While we do not deny that the problem or circumstance
exists, we do however deny it the right to stay through our faith in God
and His Word!!! Know this: Faith in God is victory all of the time!!!
"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can
be against us" NOTE - You are a winner, you are
victorious through the Lord Jesus Christ. Begin to see yourself the way
God sees you.
1 John 4:17
" Love has been perfected among us in this: that we
may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we
in this world." NOTE - Not only can we have boldness
in the day of judgment, but we can have boldness now in this life in the
face of adversity, knowing who we are in Christ, knowing what belongs
to us in Him and tenaciously holding onto it, refusing what the enemy
wants us to have. As this verse says so clearly, as He is, so are we in
this world. Think about that for a moment, how is He now? He is not sick,
He is not diseased - it can't touch Him, and we are His body -
the body of Christ. Insist on having the blessing of the Lord manifested
in you - praise Him for it now, worship Him!!!
5:15-17 "Do you not know that
your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ
and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that
he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For "the two,"
He says, "shall become one flesh." But he who is joined to the
Lord is one spirit with Him." NOTE
- I can't say it any clearer than this
verse - we are one with Jesus Christ now. Sickness has no right to Him,
so it has no legal right to us. It is illegal, off limits, it has no right
to stay. Take a firm stand and run off the attack and lie of the enemy.
You belong to Him, you are washed in His precious Blood, the covenant
Blood.Command it to leave and Insist on your rights now, and don't quit
until it changes and becomes just as the Word says it should be!!!
2 Peter 1:3-4
"As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to
life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory
and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious
promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature,
having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust." NOTE
- Notice the past tense use of "has"
given us all things that pertain to life!!! The blessing of health was
purchased for us at the cross, it belongs to you now. Notice the importance
of the Word of God, your healing must be rooted steadfastly on the Word,
not on what you see or how you feel. And did you also take note that we
are partakers of His divine nature! I guarantee you that His nature is
total health and well being, Expect it
1:9 "God is faithful, by whom
you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord."
NOTE - The word "fellowship" is a strong covenant word in the original
Greek text. It means: intimacy, partnership and participation, and also
communion. In other words, because we are born-again, we have been given
the right to share intimately, in partership and participation in His
life. Know that He is life, the purest form
of life, and He's called us to share intimately in it with Him. It's a
place where sickness and disease have no right. This is your birthright,
count on it and expect it. And I love how this verse starts out - God
is faithful. He's faithful to His Covenant Word, and to His covenant people,
He's faithful to YOU!
"For if by the one man's offense [Adam] death reigned
through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of
the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the
one, Jesus Christ." NOTE
- I love this verse! Did you notice,
it did not say you might or you possibly could, it says you will
reign in life (this life in the here and now). Are you reigning in life
or are you being rained on? If you are not experiencing victory, know
that it is a breech of the Word of God for it to remain and become the
norm. Get mad, with a righteous indignation, and command the circumstances
to leave and take hold of the victory that is yours through the Word.
For this is the will of God!
"And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over
every living thing that moveth upon the earth." NOTE
- The red blood cells of your body already
obey this verse, as they are being multiplied and replenished every 80
- 120 days! Look at the rest of what God said to mankind - subdue and
have dominion... over every living thing! Wow! That includes cancer, bacteria,
parasites, viruses and all microorganisms that cause sickness and disease.
He gave the blessing, He gave the command, He gave you the
right - now do it. Put your foot down on sickness and disease and command
it to go - it has no right to stay, You are a blood bought child of God!!!
Don't put up with it another minute, subdue and take dominion!
"He has delivered us from
the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His
love" NOTE -
To be conveyed is to be transferred, removed out of one
and placed into another. The power of darkness which includes the curse,
no longer has a hold on us as we are now members of a different kingdom
- the kingdom of God. There is no sickness and no disease in the kingdom
