Right now we are discovering the many aspects of Kingdom life and specifically looking at the Trinity. Today, we are going to try to unpack healing. Tackling this topic of Jesus, as the healer is actually complex. And there are many different aspects and components that go into healing. But what I do know for certain is that Jesus heals. And His primary ministry was that of healing.
Healing can mean many different things to different people. I want to take a look at what the Word teaches about physical healing. And I want to confront some ideologies that keep people from their healing. I’ll admit that I don’t know everything about Kingdom healing, but I know enough to pray for healing over myself and receive it and I pray for others for their healing.
I think the first thing we need to confront is the Spirit of Unbelief. We must embrace what the Word and Jesus models about healing of the physical body. Let’s begin at the beginning.
“If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.” —Exodus 15:26
Healing was made available from our Father God. I love this passage in Exodus. And God has never changed. He desires, and hear me now, greatly desires to heal. Heal people, animals, nature, and heal hearts, souls, minds and all things that are misfunctioning or broken.
What I love is that Jesus demonstrates and provides and example for us to follow. What is interesting is that Jesus doesn’t use a formula and His healings occur differently. This is reflective of His total dependence and intimacy with the Father. Who is the ultimate healer.
So how do we access the healing of Jesus through the Holy Spirit. How do we engage the spiritual realm and healing angels to bring about physical healing? I think I want to unpack or share what I know and understand with the hope that it develops other’s faith for healing. So, let’s start with the different aspects of healing.
Illness in the body occurs due to a number of issues. Today, I want to focus on the spiritual component of illness. I’ll share a personal experience to help give a perspective. My Grandmother was terribly crippled in her hands, in her golden years, by painful arthritis. Interestingly, it skipped my mother but about two years ago, I began to feel pain in my joints in my hands. In fact, I went to the doctor and he confirmed early onset of arthritis and that there is basically nothing he can do to prevent it.
Well, I can tell you I absolutely WOULD NOT settle for that answer. I began to pray with all the authority I possess and with BELIEF that this infirmity that my grandmother agreed with, WAS NOT MINE. I refused it. I commanded it away. I applied the blood. I broke all illegal agreements with the demonic realm over this illness and blessed my hands daily with health and healing. IN JESUS NAME. Always, in my Savior’s name.
Do you know today that my hands are pain free and what damage that had been done by the swelling, now has reversed?
This is why. 1) I believed. Simple and undoubting faith made a way. 2) I commanded the devil to leave me, my hands, and to destroy all legal grounds he was holding within my family bloodline. 3) I blessed my hands with health and healing. I blessed and continue to bless my body with divine health. 4) I told the spiritual realm that Jesus is my healer and He ALREADY paid the price, and it was very costly, for my complete healing, thus it was going to happen. I did not relent until I began to see changes weeks even months later 5) I thank. I continually, even now, give thanks to Jesus for healing my hands from arthritis. After all, I still have a bunch of writing to do in the years ahead and I need my hands to be pain-free.
I would also quote verses of healing to the devil. I would listen to healing scriptures at night before bed. I still do that often. I looked up every verse in the Bible about healing and I would claim them as mine.
Okay, so this is one aspect of healing where I had to confront the demonic who was creating this infirmity. We will discuss others in the days ahead.
What is your story? Have you been healed by the Healer? How? Share and give Him honor. See you in the comments. I love you Warrior! March on! Hugs, Lynn
