Jesus purchased your “deserve” for healing from sickness

“And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up. But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, “Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.” And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God,” (Luke 13:11-13).

Two-thousand years after the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His establishment of a new and better covenanat based on new and better promises, the devil is still using the same demonic spirits who influenced the Pharisees to use church leaders and our brothers and sisters in Christ to attack and speak against healing and deliverance from sickness and spirits of infirmity. And to deny the power of the Holy Spirit.

It continues to boggle my mind to hear how many would rather preach the captivity of satan to sickness rather than the One who came to heal us. The One who is named Healer, Redeemer, Deliverer, Resurrection, and Life. The One who gave body to to be broken, striped, and put to death then raised again to redeem us from sin and all its effects (the curse of the law), including physical and spiritual sicknesses.

Recently, I heard another church leader preaching in favor of the devil’s sicknesses. He mockingly said something sarcastic about “Oh and those Christians who think they ‘DESERVE’ healing.” I turned it off of course because I am for those who preach and cherish everything Jesus paid for His children to have under a far superior covenant than the old covenant. For those who cherish the power of His name and blood.

I brought the idea before the Lord, and He said, “Jesus purchased your ‘deserve’ for healing.”

Of course, literally NO ONE, in their own righteousness deserves anything from the Lord, but glory to God, when we were born again, we IMMEDIATELY spiritually became a PART OF Christ’s very body and IMMEDIATELY indwelt by His Holy Spirit.

In Him, we are the very righteousness of God! The VERY righteousness of God, clothed in Christ’s perfection, forever, without end, no matter what we do or don’t do. We are SEALED by His blood in a permanent covenant relationship with Him.

So based on our pefect righstanding with God the Father IN Jesus Christ, we can say we DESERVE healing because He purchased the deserve for us.

This truth is simply recognition of my covenant rights in Christ Jesus. What His blood bought for me. Glory to the Lamb of God! Glory to my Abba Father who freely have His Son for me and will freely give me all good things.

Check out the outragoeusly bold prayers and declarations of David when he was up against Goliath and king Abijah when he was up against king Jeroboam.

These are two men who boldy declared victory over their enemies before God and Israel BEFORE their battles even began.

Why? Because they had covenant grounds to do so.

This is exactly why EVERY child of God can by faith declare victory over all sickness and disease and every work of the devil coming against their bodies! And expect total healing. We have the covenant grounds to do so. By Jesus’ stripes, we were healed. He sent His Word Jesus and healed us and delivered us from our destructions and on and on.

Did you recall that the old covenant law is called the ministry of death and condemnation? And that the new covenant is called the ministry of righteousness?

“But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory. For even what was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels. For if what is passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious,” (2 Cor 3:7-11).

I suggest reading all of 2 Corinthians 3. It’s excellent and lifegiving and sets free! Though the old covenant was considered glorious, the new covenant exceeds MUCH MORE in glory!

Child of God, we are no longer under the ministry of death and condemnation but under the new covenant ministry of righteousness paid for in full by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, full of new and better promises AND authority over ALL the power of the enemy.

Do not allow anyone to preach sickness to you as a blessing! All sickness is a work of the devil. God is not for the works of the devil or anything that was birthed into the earth because of sin. The devil is a liar!

Sickness is satanic captivity. Jesus came to set the captives free. (Acts 10:38) Hallelujah!

“But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises,” (Hebrews 8:6).

“He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil,” (1 John 3:8).

Resurrection Power lives inside of you, child of God

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 bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. ~ Romans 8:11

Child of God, His Word is only true! Don’t reason your way out of the covenant rights purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ through unbelief or by magnifying what is seen over His Word.

Only believe. Take His Word by faith for your health and healing. For God to do in your body what man cannot.

Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
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

BAD DOCTOR’S REPORT? Stand up and fight!

You or a loved one receive a bad doctor’s report?

Now is the time to make a choice: Believe the Lord’s report? Or exalt the bad doctor’s report above the Word of the Lord?

In Numbers 13-14, God wants us to use His Word as instruction to learn about two types of people.

  1. One who believes the Lord’s report no matter what he/she sees and acts on His Word by faith confident he/she will have victory over their enemies (sickness is an enemy).
  2. One who walks by what is seen and exalts the world’s bad reports above the Lord’s promises, faithfulness, covenant, and revealed will to him or her.

Whom would you rather God say YOU are like?

A PROMISE AND REVEALED WILL OF GOD: “And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, ‘Send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel; from each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a leader among them,'” (Numbers 13:1-2).

The promise and revealed will: God IS GIVING the children of Israel the land of Canaan – enough said because of who said it – Almighty God!

A LOOK AT TWO TYPES OF PEOPLE GOD WANTS US TO SEE IN NUMBERS: FAITH VS. UNBELIEF [my emphasis in brackets]:

“Now they [the spies from amongst the children of Israel] departed and came back to Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel in the Wilderness of Paran, at Kadesh; they brought back word to them and to all the congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land. 

Then they told him, and said: “We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there. [RUH OH! Magnifying what was seen above a promise of God, dangerously close to turning into unbelief (rejecting God’s will for oneself)].

The Amalekites [giants] dwell in the land of the South; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Jordan.”

Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.” [Now, we have Caleb who received a word from the Lord with gladness and was assured of victory based on a promise and revealed will of God. He has everything he needed to “go up AT ONCE and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.” Why? Because God said so. Victory assured in his eyes, including over giants.”]

But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.” And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature. There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight,” (Numbers 13:26-33). [These bad report exalting spies crossed over into full unbelief, rejecting the will of God for themselves and poisoned the faith of others as well.]

You can be like Caleb who took God for His Word and he and Joshua and their descendants entered into the land. Or…

…you can be like the spies who created their own false doctrine based on what was seen instead of a promise of God. They rejected God’s will for themselves and did not enter the land.

So, you’v received a bad doctor’s report?

Make a choice now to stand up and fight an possess what God has already given you through this promise in 1 Peter 2:24, “By Jesus’ stripes, you were healed.” And don’t allow any of those bad report spy types into your prayer circle for they will poison your faith, attempting to get you to deny the this powrful promise of God He has also ALREADY given you for Jesus finished His work 2000 years ago.

Or if you’re standing in the gap for a loved one’s healing, be sure to stand up and fight for them and possess their healing paid for in full by Jesus by faith because of grace alone. The enemy is the one who resists healing not God. He’s ALREADY healed us 2000 years ago, but like the children of Israel, we must possess what is already ours.

Yes, there may be “giants in the land of your body or the body of a loved one,” but God has already said, “By My Son, Jesus’ stripes, you WERE healed.” Use the Word as a weapon and defeat every last giant in your or their body.

His Kingdom runs on faith, lest anyone boast. Glory to Him alone.

You think that maybe it’s over
Only if you want it to be
Are you gonna wait for a sign, your miracle
Stand up and fight

This is it
Make no mistake where you are
This is it
You back’s to the corner
This is it
Don’t be a fool anymore
This is it
