Happy Resurrection weekend! JESUS is RISEN! When we received Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we were set free from the dominion of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the Son of God’s Love! (Col. 1:13) But today is Good Friday and we remember how our King Jesus endured the torment of crucifixion 3 days before the resurrection. Christi and I were recently sharing the love of God with someone who questioned “Why would a loving God put His Son through such torture?” We were quick to answer: HE DID IT FOR YOU AND ME! John 3:16 says, “For God so LOVED the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Our Heavenly Father’s plan of redemption is two fold. First, that we could escape the penalty of sin and hell and have eternal life with Him in heaven. Second, so that we could be delivered from sickness and disease!
Jesus endured being beaten and flogged by the Roman soldiers until He was no longer recognizable. Isaiah 52:14 NIV says, “His appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and His form marred beyond human likeness—” Jesus was flogged with a whip that had small pieces of glass, bones and metal attached to leather strips which would have stripped the skin off his back exposing muscle and bone. Why did He endure this incomprehensible pain and suffering? So that we could BE HEALED!
“Surely He has borne our griefs (Hebrew word is: sicknesses) And carried our sorrows (Hebrew word: diseases); Yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes WE ARE HEALED.” Isaiah 53:4-5
Matthew 8:17 confirms this again saying, “that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took OUR infirmities and bore OUR sicknesses.”
If Jesus bore it for us, we need not bear it! When were we healed? 2000 years ago! Please always remember that the plan of redemption is TWO FOLD. God’s will is that we have the same faith in our healing as we do our salvation. Jesus is the pure, unblemished lamb of God, sacrificed for us so that we might be in right standing with God and be set free from the bondage of sickness & disease: “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.” I Peter 2:24
In the Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, a dictionary based on the principles of God’s Word, healed is defined as: RESTORED to a sound state. As you may know, our father in the faith, Kenneth Copeland, prophesied that 2021 would be a year of DIVINE HEALTH, DIVINE HEALING, DIVINE PROSPERITY and DIVINE RECOVERY. Recovery and restoration have the same meaning of getting back what has been stolen. We stand and agree with you for TOTAL RESTORATION of divine healing and divine health in your spirit, soul and body!
“For I will restore health to you, and I will heal your wounds, says the Lord.” Jeremiah 30:17
We encourage you to look these scriptures up, meditate on them and declare them over your life and your family, especially if you or a loved one are being challenged with sickness or disease. For Psalms 107:20 promises, “He sends forth His word and heals them and rescues them from the pit and destruction.”
As you sow your precious seed into the kingdom of God this month, please say with us: “Jesus did it all for me! He bore my sins and now I am free from the law of sin and death. 2000 years ago, He bore all my sicknesses and diseases and by His stripes I AM HEALED! This is my year of restoration of divine healing, divine health and divine prosperity!”
We love you and call you healed,
Mylon & Christi
