Jesus healing. So much can be shared on this subject and of course, one can never cover it completely, so I will not even attempt to do it. Instead, I would just like to very briefly mention a Jesus healing revelation from the Word of God.
With the start of the Protestant Reformation with Martin Luther, the Lord has been adding to that revelation truth to the Body of Christ. It is the truth about the real spiritual meaning of our salvation, in all its aspects.
The Hebrew word that the Bible uses for salvation is a very rich word and it includes several areas, which, put together, encompass our entire life – spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, socially, financially, politically and every other way you can imagine. Let me list those areas for you:
1). Salvation – This of course is the main area. It includes our salvation from sin and the new life that the Lord imparts into our spirit when we get born again. You see, salvation is a two-fold process. The first part is when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior and at that moment He writes our name in His book of life, so we don’t go to Hell (This happens for a second and is the legal part of the contract, so to speak). Actually, the Lord could have stopped here and could have told us: “Since you accepted Me, I have saved you, so that’s it. You will escape Hell, so don’t worry about it. Now you can continue with your life as you lived it before.”
Yet, the Lord did not stop with just saving us and guaranteeing us a place in Heaven. He wanted something more. He wanted to put new genes in us (spiritually speaking). He wanted to impart a new heart and a new spirit in us, so we could be the exact image of His Son. He wanted us to be His representatives on the earth, carriers of His glory, rulers together with Him, establishing His Kingdom. Of course, we can do none of this by our own self and by our on strength, so at the new birth, the Lord removes the old stony heart from us and gives us a totally new heart and spirit: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Now this is the practical part of the contract, where we apply the salvation in our daily life.
Can you see the difference between just being saved (escaping Hell) and living a life full of God, until we go to Heaven? Salvation includes both.
2). Healing – Well, Jesus healing is real, because Jesus is the Healer! Healing is a spiritual substance provided in the “salvation package”. The word salvation itself, when translated from Hebrew, means healing as well. So, please do not ever have the slightest doubt that it is the Lord’s will to completely heal you, NO MATTER WHAT sickness you may have! Not only that, but if we live out our salvation in fullness, we will actually not need any healing, because we will be walking in Divine Health all the time. I am not thinking this up, nor have I copied it from somewhere else – I am telling you something my own family is experiencing for many years now. The Lord is faithful and if we walk in integrity, humility, repentance and forgiveness, the Lord’s healing power will flow freely in our life and give us strength. I wish you a Jesus healing!
3). Deliverance – It can be attached to Jesus healing, but it carries a slightly different shade of meaning, including all areas of not so normal sicknesses, but rather demonic ones, that bind the person, bring a curse in their life or have a destruction effect of a higher dimension. Good news! Jesus is greater than any demon, and the Bible says He casts out demons with the finger of God. It only takes a finger (The Lord’s one) to destroy the powers of Hell in our lives. Jesus took the keys of death and hell from satan (it’s not a grammatical mistake that I have not capitalized his name), “having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it” (Colossians 2:15). Please don’t ever magnify or over estimate the power of the enemy – glorify God instead and meditate upon His power and ability to heal and deliver you completely.
4). Protection – Another Jesus healing area would be protection. Protection in the context of salvation speaks not only about the Lord keeping us from sicknesses, but also protecting us from all evil, in ever area of our life and existence. Jesus said our life is in the Lord’s hands and even the hairs of our heads are all numbered, so the Lord definitely takes a good care of us. He also said a sparrow will not fall to the ground without God the Father’s will, so what does that speak to you about us – the crown of God’s creation? Why would Christians think they are no different than unbelievers in this area? We are different! The Lord’s protection is upon us! The Lord is more than able to preserve us and protect us from ALL HARM. Just read Psalm 91, I need not add anything else.
5). Prosperity – The word salvation also includes our prosperity. Now prosperity is not just a materialistic term, but first and foremost, a spiritual one. To be prosperous means to succeed in life, to fulfill God’s purposes and intentions in our generation, to live out our destiny in Him fully, to accomplish everything we are called to, to live a satisfactory to Him life and to be full of days and assets, when the time comes for us to go to heaven. Remember Abraham? The Bible says when his time to die came, he was full of days, very rich in possessions and people, and satisfied. How’s that for Jesus healing?
6). Wholeness – It combines all of the above and adds to the meaning of the word salvation. Wholeness means the Lord had the fullness of His image in mind when He created us, and when He recreated us (at the new birth, when salvation took place). Jesus said He had come to give us life, and life more abundantly! (John 10:10). Everything is wrapped up in God. The devil may do all he wants in an attempt to steal, kill or destroy us, but the Lord’s life is in us and the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus gives us completeness and wholeness, so we are fit and intact and immovable to the devil.
7). Victory – This is again a word that combines much of the above said, but as a militant term, it shows us that we are not supposed to be sitting and waiting for the devil to come and try to destroy our life in an of the areas we already mentioned – we are supposed to live an ACTIVE Christian life that pushes al enemies of the Cross away from us, our loved ones, our neighborhood, our nation and the nations of the world.
O, how I don’t want to end this exciting subject, but it is becoming a long article, so I will stop here. All 7 words in points 1 through 7 above are the actual translation of the Hebrew word soteria (salvation). May the Lord give you a new understanding in the area of Jesus salvation and Jesus healing in their fullness. Amen!
May God Bless you!
