You Have Been Healed

Sickness was a curse of the law. Jesus has redeemed us from the curse of the law.

Jesus took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses.

By His stripes you were healed. That's not a promise - it's a statement of fact.

Healing is in God's redemptive plan. It is God's will to heal you.

He promised to take sickness away from the midst of them. The New Covenant is based on better promises than the Old.

But sometimes we have to claim what is ours. How?

Know that healing is in God's redemptive plan, and that he has redeemed you from the curse of the law, and that you have been healed by His stripes. Just simply know it.

Thank Him for it. Recognise that fact. Thank Him for your perfect deliverance. It isn't even always necessary to pray. Just thank our heavenly Father.

He didn't promise to heal you. These are statements of fact. It's already happened. Stand on the facts! Declare the facts. Refuse to accept sickness. Sometimes it weakens your stand if you think of healing as promise yet to be done, rather than as a statement of fact.

Not everybody knows this, because they haven't been taught it. Some aren't on the level where they can act on it even though they hear it. They're still in the babyhood or childhood state of development. But if you'll meditate on God's Word, you'll grow and get to the place where you can act on it.

If you need help, get somebody to agree with you. If two of you on earth agree, as touching anything you ask (that would have to include healing for the physical body, or else it couldn't be anything) - it shall be done for them, if you both believe. It's just good to get somebody to help you sometimes. One shall chase a thousand - two shall put ten thousand to flight!

Another way is to call for the elders of the church to anoint you with oil. "Is there any sick among you?" wrote James. That infers that there need not be any sick among us. You don't have to call for the elders, but you can if you need to. If you don't know anyone who can do that, you can still be healed. It's the prayer of faith that saves the sick. I can believe for healing because God tells me it belongs to me.

Pray for one another that ye may be healed, the Bible says. Why doesn't it just fall on us? It doesn't work that way. If healing is not for one another, why pray for it? He's not going to tell us to pray for something that's not His will! Confess your faults to one another. Sometimes there are things that hinder us from receiving healing. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. How much does it avail? Much! It makes tremendous power available, dynamic in its action.

Believers shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. There's got to be faith though. When we get into faith, that's when it works. Speak and act as though you believe it. There's a saying, "Blessed is he that expected nothing, for he shall not be disappointed": but thank God, "these signs shall follow them that believe".

Prayer is addressed to the Father in the Name of Jesus. But we can also use the Name. That's not prayer per se.

Speaking is a great way. All of the miracles of healing Jesus performed involved Him speaking something, as far as I can recall.

God's Word works.
