It is God's will to heal YOU!
When we believe God took Aunt Sue home with cancer or gave sickness to brother so-and-so to teach them something, we are accusing God of doing things to His children that we would NEVER think of doing to our own children. Are we more loving and good than our Father God?
Matthew 7:11, “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?”
When somebody comes to me and says that God can use sickness, I ask them if healing is in the atonement. If healing is in the atonement (and any fool should be able to figure that out, just go read Isaiah 53:5 then Matthew 8:16-17), then for God to withhold on something that Jesus paid for, would mean His integrity is worthless!
That should settle it once and for all. If Jesus paid for it with 39 lashings (40 is when most people died!), then He really wanted us to be healed. It is part of our covenant, or legal contract that God made with us. Because of the payment Jesus made, healing is a right that belongs to every believer. I just wrote a teaching on healing that goes all into the major keys for getting healed, which I encourage you to check out.
If you are seeking a healing, some of the best books that I have either read or that have came highly recommended to me by trusted ministers include:
- Bodily Healing and the Atonement
- How To Heal The Sick
- Christ the Healer
- Healing Promises (more of a devotional)
Blessings in Christ,
