"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". 1 Pe. 2:24
HEALING IS THE WILL OF GOD by Dr. John David Kirby - Part 1 of 7
In the beginning when God created man and woman He created them perfect and sinless. Not only were they sinless, they were also without sickness. The Bible says that everything God created was good! Genesis 1:31 - "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day."
Sickness and disease were never a part of Adam and Eve's lives until after "The Fall." When Adam and Eve ate of the "forbidden fruit" sin entered their lives and brought with it sickness, disease and death.
Sickness, disease and death were never God's idea. They were never God's intention for His beloved creation. They are the works of darkness.
The Bible says that Jesus Christ came to destroy the "works of darkness!" 1 John 3:8 - "He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil."
You must understand that sickness and disease and death are the enemies of God. You must view sickness and disease the way that God does. They are your enemies, not your friends.
The Bible says that Jesus went about doing good, and healing! Acts 10:38 - "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him."
God says that healing is good! Healing is the will of God for you! This verse of scripture shows us the will of God. Jesus only did the will of God. John 8:29 - "And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him."
Therefore healing is good . . . and Healing IS the Will of God. Jesus said to the leper who came to him for healing, "I WILL", and forever settled the issue for us all!
Matthew 8:1-3 - "When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.
And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed."
It is always the will of God to heal! You must get into agreement with God to receive your healing from God. Amos 3:3 - "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?"
God says that sickness disease and death are His enemies.
You must say sickness, disease and death are my enemies.
God says healing is His will for you.
You must say that healing is His will for me.
God says He has healed you.
You must say He has healed me.
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."
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 want you to begin to study these passages of scripture. This is the Word of God! This is the will of God for you! What does the Word say? What does the will say? What does God say? He says you were healed! He says you are healed!
