“Biblical Healing – 101”…Blog.
*** (Matthew 16:4) A ‘wicked’ and ‘adulterous’ generation seeks after a ‘sign’. And there shall ‘no sign’ be given to it, except the sign of the prophet Jonah. And He left them and went away.
*** (John 20:29) Jesus said to him, Thomas, because you have seen Me you have believed. Blessed are they who have ‘not seen’ and have ‘believed’.
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come, says the Lord Jehovah, that I will send a famine in the land; not a famine of bread nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the Words of Jehovah.
*** (Luke 5:31) And Jesus answered and said to them, Those who are sound ‘do not’ need a physician, but those who are sick.
*** (2Ki 6:27) And he said, if Jehovah [God] does ‘not’ help you, from where shall I ‘help’ you? Out of the barn-floor, or out of the winepress?
Statement of Fact: True Healing comes from God: using either Doctors or Miracles. Yes, He does miraculously heal today: but it is the… “Exception!”
“Many” today, as in Jesus’ day… expect ‘signs & wonders’ in order to believe in God. ‘Many’ are claiming that they were ‘Healed’ and still many more are ‘wrongly’ told they were not healed; because they didn’t have ‘enough’ faith. May I ask… how many of “YOU”; have examined the ‘Complete Scriptures’… about “Physical Healing?” Did you know that ‘Sickness’ is part of the “Curse” pronounced against the ‘rebellion’ by Adam & Eve? Did you know the God; the God of the Bible causes some sickness? Did you know that part of our ‘genetic & heritage’ makeup… is that we will ‘not’ be healthy. And yet… “Many” simply ‘wrongly’ believe because they; “Believe in God”… they will be healed! Sorry, “Physical Healing”… is “Not” promised… in the Scriptures. The real cause of the Sickness of mankind is not a ‘physical’ one… but a ‘Spiritual’ one… that can only be remedied; by being “Born Again” by the Holy Spirit of God!
*** (Exodus 4:11) And Jehovah said to him, Who has made man's mouth? Or who makes the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, Jehovah?
*** (Job 2:9-10) And his wife said to him, Do you still hold to your integrity? Curse God and die!
(Job 2:10) But he said to her, You speak as one of the foolish ones speak. What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
*** (Isaiah 45:5) I am Jehovah, and there is ‘none’ else, ‘no’ God besides Me; I clothed you, though you have not known Me;
(Isa 45:6) that they may know from the rising of the sun, and to the sunset, that there is ‘none’ besides Me. I am Jehovah, and there is ‘none’ else;
(Isa 45:7) forming the light and creating [allow] darkness; making peace and creating evil. I Jehovah do ‘all’ these things.
*** (Psalms 139:14-to-17) I will praise You [Lord]; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are marvelous and my soul knows it very well.
(Psa 139:15) My bones were not hidden from You when I was made in secret and skillfully formed in the lowest parts of the earth.
(Psa 139:16) Your eyes saw my embryo; and in Your book all my members were written, the days they were formed, and not one was among them.
(Psa 139:17) How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
Healing – 101 Blog.
So what about the “Healing”… spoken about in the both the “NT & OT?” Most quoted is… “Isaiah 53:5… and with His stripes we are Healed!” First… ‘What or Who’… is the entire ‘Chapter’ speaking about? Have you read it for yourself…? As a “Matter of Fact”… have ‘YOU’ read the Entire Book of Isaiah? How then can… “YOU”… take a single verse; out of context; and wrongly make it say… what it does “Not?” This is ‘how & why’… so very “Many”; who call themselves “Christian”… have ‘never’ been Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God! They have chosen a “Santa Jesus”… who will ‘bless’ them; keep them ‘well & happy’… and meet ‘all’ their ‘needs & wants’… “Without ‘Any’–Personal Responsibility!” Please take a few minutes and read the ‘Entire Chapter’… of Isaiah 53…?
*** (Isaiah 53:3-6) He is despised and rejected of men; a Man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as it were a hiding of faces from Him, He being despised, and we esteemed Him not.
(Isa 53:4) Surely He has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
(Isa 53:5) But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was on Him; and with His stripes we ourselves are healed.
(Isa 53:6) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, each one to his own way; and Jehovah has ‘laid’ on Him the ‘iniquity’ = of us ‘all’.
*** (1Corinthians 5:7) Therefore purge out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, as you are unleavened. For also Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.
*** (Romans 5:6-to-10) For we yet being without strength, in due time Christ died for the ‘ungodly’.
(Rom 5:7) For one will with difficulty die for a righteous one, yet perhaps one would even dare to die for a good one.
(Rom 5:8) But God ‘commends’ His love toward us; in that ‘while’ we were yet sinners; Christ died for us.
(Rom 5:9) Much more then, being now ‘justified’ by His blood, we shall be ‘saved’ from wrath through Him. [Revelation 20:10-to-15]
(Rom 5:10) For if ‘when’ we were enemies, we were ‘reconciled’ to God through the death of His Son, much more, being ‘reconciled’, we shall be ‘saved’ by His life.
*** (Jeremiah 2:29) Why will you plead with Me? You ‘all’ have sinned; against Me, says Jehovah.
*** (Romans 3:10-11) as it is written: “There is ‘none’ righteous, ‘no not one’;
(Rom 3:11) there is ‘none’ that understands, there is ‘none’ that seeks after God.”
*** (Romans 3:23) for ‘all’ have sinned and ‘come short’ of the glory of God,
*** (Job 9:20) If I justify myself, my own mouth shall condemn me; though I am perfect, He shall declare me perverse.
… “SIN”… is the ‘Root’… “SINS”… are the ‘Fruit’…!
The Sickness common to All Mankind is… “SIN/SINS!” All sinners are not physically sick, and many die only of old age; their bodies only wearing out. We live in these ‘Fallen Bodies of Sin’… which were ‘not’ meant to last for eternity. For that we will need a “Glorified Body”… given to the “Redeemed in Christ”… which will not; be subject to the ravages of ‘SIN’, Genetics or even Death! The entire chapter of Isaiah 53… speaks of a “Redeemer; and ‘Not’ of a healer, of our physical maladies. Those sign gifts manifested by Christ Jesus and His Apostles were to ‘validate’ His and their Authority! But did Jesus ‘HEAL’… “Everyone?” Absolutely… “NOT!” Did He ‘only’ Heal Believers in Him? Absolutely… “NOT!” So why today do so very ‘Many’… believers; falsely ask or claim healing…?
*** (John 9:3) Jesus answered, Neither has this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God might be ‘revealed’ in him.
*** (John 9:25) He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I ‘was’ blind, now I ‘see’.
*** (John 9:39) And Jesus said, I have come into this world for ‘judgment’, = that they who ‘do not’ see; might see, = and that they who ‘see’’ might be made blind.

(Joh 5:5) And a certain man was there, who had an infirmity thirty-eight years.
(Joh 5:6) When Jesus saw him lying, and knowing that he had spent much time, He said to him, Do you desire to be made whole?
(Joh 5:7) The infirm man answered Him, Sir, when the water is troubled, I have no one to put me into the pool. But while I am coming, another steps down before me.
(Joh 5:8) Jesus says to him, Rise, take up your bed and walk.

(Luke 17:15) And ‘one’ of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back and glorified God with a loud voice.
(Luke 17:16) And he fell down on his face at His feet, thanking Him. And he was a Samaritan.
(Luke 17:17) And answering, Jesus said, Were there not ‘ten’ cleansed? But where ‘are’ the nine?
(Luke 17:18) Were ‘none’ found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?
*** (James 4:3) You ask and receive not, ‘because’ you ask amiss, that you ‘may’ spend it upon your lusts.
*** (2Corinthians 12:8) For this thing I [Paul] be sought the Lord three times, that it might depart from me.
(2Cor 12:9) And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may overshadow me.
*** (Hebrews 4:16) Therefore let us ‘come’ boldly to the throne of grace, that we may ‘obtain’ mercy and ‘find’ grace to help; in time of ‘need’.
Just HOW Many of YOU… “Eat Healthy?” How many; that call the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus… “SMOKE?” You… “Poison” your body with “Alcohol & Cigarettes”… and then “Claim Healing?” Are you… “OVER WEIGHT?” You ‘do not’ exercise or take ‘proper’ care of your Bodies… and then… “Claim Healing?” You ‘sit’ in front of your TV or Videos & “Video GAMES”… and “Hardly IF Ever”… Open your Bibles and “Read & Study”… the Holy Word of God… and then “Claim Healing?” What is wrong with that Picture…?
