Re: Healing Scriptures

Psalm 91:1 "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."

We cannot find healing or faith unless we have spent time in his presence. The Word will produce faith and healing by drawing us into His presence.

5But 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.
One writer states:

"The phrase "we were healed" in Strongs Concordance the Hebrew word is chabbuwrah- bound (with stripes), i.e. a weal (or black-and-blue mark itself):

The root word is #2266 chabar-1) to unite, to join, to bind together, to be joined, to be coupled, to be in league, to heap up, to have fellowship with, to unite, to join oneself to, to make an alliance.

By his stripes we were healed, we were made united to God spiritually now having fellowship where sin once kept us from this. While this does not dismiss his physically healing us, it in no way is a guarantee of it. To teach this can be just as much a disservice than someone teaching God no longer heals!"

And so I think we can apply it to physical healing but really the thrust of this message is that by His sacrifice we are make whole w/ and in God.

Re: Healing Scriptures

When Jesus said "forgive them" talking about the people who were in the very process of crucifying Him.

I often think of this when I am irate at someone.... I either think of it or He is gently "reminding me".

Of course, it's not about healing in the physical sense....

Matthew 4:23
Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people

More from the article on being healed by His stripes:

Do we see the apostles use this as a guarantee for their sicknesses or afflictions. Paul mentions Christ being crushed for our sins in the communion service, but he has nothing to say about healing (using phrases taken from atonement Scriptures). This verse is cited twice in the New Testament. In Romans 4:25: where the context is Jesus suffering for our sins. The Greek term `healing' ( therapis from the Hebrew rapha) is not found in the text and the context deals with sin, not illness.

1 Pet. 2:24: "Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness-- by whose stripes you were healed..

Peter In 1 Pt.2:21-24 applies this to the cross and the spiritual healing of sins, he says nothing about the healing of diseases in our now mortal bodies. So we see that both New Testament references to this verse do not mentions illness.

While Isa.53:5 says we are healed, Peter refers the stripes to being on the cross (not before) and says by whose stripes you were healed, making it past tense. Showing when event was accomplished. It is related to our spiritual healing of sins not physical well being. To further solidify the context of this interpretation Isa.53:6 speaks of us as sheep going astray. 1 Pt.2:25 also uses the same format, "as sheep gone astray but now returning to the shepherd of our souls. Today he heals through his death, the atonement and through his present ministry of intercession.

Re: Healing Scriptures

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever!

Another thing I really like is something Caleb said in Numbers 13:30 after they spied out the Promised land: Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.

All the promises of God are ours just like the promised land was for the Isrealites. We only need the faith like Caleb to go and possess those promises.

Both ladies have said that they still read their Scriptures and keep them close...keeping the Word close is SO important.

This is a good thread...
