1 When Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in their cities.
2 Now when John heard in prison about the deeds of the Christ, he sent word by his disciples
3 and said to him, “Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?”
4 And Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John what you hear and see:
5 the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them.
6 And blessed is the one who is not offended by me.”
4 Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word.
5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them.
6 And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.
7 For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed.
8 And there was great joy in that city.
When the true full gospel of Jesus Christ is preached publicly, as demonstrated by Jesus and Philip, miracles, signs and wonders follow and the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up. But as in Jesus day there are blind legalistic Pharisees and scribes who cannot demonstrate miracles, signs and wonders, and for the sake of their tradition have made void the word of God criticize and deny miraculous healing and deliverance to be God’s will!. They are hypocrites who honor God with their lips, but their heart is far from Him. In vain do they worship God, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch. God’s word is true:
1 Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said,
2 “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat.”
3 He answered them, “And why do you break the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?
4 For God commanded, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘Whoever reviles father or mother must surely die.’
5 But you say, ‘If anyone tells his father or his mother, “What you would have gained from me is given to God,”
6 he need not honor his father.’So for the sake of your tradition you have made void the word of God.
7 You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said:
8 “‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me;
9 in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.'”
10 When He had called the multitude to Himself, He said to them, “Hear and understand:
11 Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”
12 Then His disciples came and said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?”
13 But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted.
14 Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.”
HEALING IS YOUR BIRTH RIGHT
I am more convinced than ever that sickness, disease, pain, malady, malfunction, the cure for that curse, and it is a curse, is provided by the same cross that provided our salvation. Jesus said it Himself to the woman bent over for 18 years, he said to those religious spirits of his day, “Ought not this woman.” Now, what the Scripture actually says is “This woman has a right, ought not this woman, she has a right to be loosed from this bondage where in Satan has bound her, these many years seeing that she is a child of Abraham?”
Oh, how my spirit ran to Galatians 3:19, “If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed and you are an heir according to that promise.” Don’t you ever … let the devil tell you sickness and disease is something god sends your way.
Sickness and disease were never present on the earth until Adam committed high treason against God. Now, the author of that instigation was Satan, because he wanted to mar the image of God. We are created in the image of God. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Ghost. The Bible says our bodies are not for fornication, but for the Spirit of God. My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit; He is the vine, we are the branches. What comes to us should come from him. This earth and the fullness there of are the Lord’s.
The problem is, we act like it belongs to the devil and we are the trespassers here. In actuality, we’re in the kingdom of God, we’re in that cosmos of the kingdom of God, which is in the earth. And the earth and the fullness there of belong to God. Therefore in this kingdom, sickness, disease, pain, malady, malfunction, infirmity cannot exist. The word of God, Psalm 107 verse 20, “He sent His word and He healed them and delivered them from all their transgressions.” Isaiah 53:5, 1 Peter 2:24, “For this purpose, that God sent Jesus to be wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was laid upon Him, by his stripes we were (healed).” And 1 Peter 2:24, and are healed.
… Jesus was asked point-blank if it was His will to heal. His answer was in different translations, His answer was, “Of course I will, be whole. I will it. I will it from all my heart that you be made whole.”
3 John 2, “Beloved I wish above all things that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers.” God is the healer, look at me. He’s the healer. This journey ends up with a “Hallelujah, I’m here talking today.”
