1 Peter 2:24
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
I was just listening to a sermon called "God is Good", it was a great sermon with a simple, but powerful message! What stood out to me the most, though, was the end. The pastor began to call out people who were being healed, for example, pancreatic cancer, chromes disease, etc. It was awesome. I was thinking about all of those people who were now living free, completely healed.
Years ago, I would listen to those same kinds of sermons and just hope they would call out the disease I had, "A young girl is healed from Alopecia, her hair is growing back instantly." I would sit close to the screen just waiting, hoping, for those words!
The thing is, now I know I don't have to wait. I could have been healed YEARS ago, but I didn't know the truth. It wasn't until I found out that it's not God holding out on me, it was me not knowing my true identity in Christ, HEALED!
You do not have to wait for the preacher to call out your symptom, you can receive your healing right now, exactly where you are. Jesus is not holding out on you. He healed you 2,000 years ago on the cross. He finished His job. Now it's up to us.
Don't wait. You've already been called out, "YOU'RE HEALED"
John 10:10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Isaiah 53:4-5 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: 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 with his stripes we are healed. (Compare with Matthew 8:17, Jesus uses words infirmities and sicknesses)
Matthew 8:17 That is might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
Mark 16:17-18 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
