God's Will To Heal - page 101

Chapter 11: Healing Is a Part of Redemption
Just as much as being saved from hell, and just as much as being born again, healing is a part of
redemption. It belongs to you equally with the forgiveness of sin.
Reason number eleven we are sure it is God’s will for all to be healed is because healing is a
part of redemption.
Second Corinthians 1:20 says, “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen,”
or so be it, “unto the glory of God by us.” How many of the promises of God? All of them.
I said this before, and I’m being so repetitive and strong about it because it is a big, big issue: I
am convinced from the Word that there is no blessing available to mankind except through Jesus.
That is an all-inclusive statement. I don’t believe that God goes around that and does things any
other way. To do so would be unjust. God, the Father, the Creator of heavens and earth is the
righteous Judge of all the earth. The Bible says He is known for His righteous judgments (Psalm
119), and no matter how much He loves you, He’s not going to pervert justice for you. He’s not
going to do wrong or do something unfair or unjust for anyone. So the only way He would have
a right to do something for a man or a woman is through redemption. That way He’s justified.
The Bible says Jesus is just, and He is the Justifier of those who believe in Him. (Romans 3:26)
If anyone has ever been healed—in the Old Testament, in the New Testament, or last week—it
was based on what Jesus was going to do or what He has already done. You and I are looking
back to the Cross. It has already happened. It is already done. Isaiah 53:5 says, “With his stripes
we are healed.” That is good news. First Peter 2:24 uses a different word. It says, “By His stripes
healed.” Why? Isaiah is looking by the Spirit to the future. Jesus hasn’t been born yet
in his time. The scourging hasn’t happened, the Cross hasn’t happened, and Him being raised
from the dead hasn’t happened on the earth, but he’s looking at it in the Spirit, so he says, “With
his stripes we
But Peter is on the other side, like we are. The Lord has come, born of a virgin, scourged at the
whipping post, hung on a cross, and raised from the dead. He is seated at the right hand of
Majesty, and now he says, “By Whose stripes you were healed.” Everyone who was healed
throughout the Old Covenant, the Old Testament, and all those years through the Prophets and
the Law was healed based on what Jesus was
to do. All the masses and thousands who
were healed in Jesus’ earthly ministry were healed based on what He was
to do. Then
anyone and everyone who has been healed since then has been healed based on what Jesus
already done
at the Cross.
All of the promises of God, every one of them, find their fulfillment in God the Father’s ability
to say “yes” and “so be it, you can have it.” It is all, and only, through Jesus. He is our Hero.
He’s everything. I get excited when I start talking about Him. Jesus is it! He’s everything! He’s
the beginning and the end. He’s the Alpha and the Omega. He’s the first and the last and
everything in-between. There is no salvation apart from Him. He is the only way. He is
There is no deliverance, no healing, no freedom, and no blessing from God except through Him,
through Jesus.
