“I, the LORD, am your healer.” Exodus 15:26.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
I have redeemed you from the curse of the law in the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus. That includes healing. That is a Covenant blessing. I am the LORD your healer. And that includes every form of illness, disease, pain, deformities, broken bones, and any malfunctions of your inner parts, skin, and every system of your body. It also includes mental and emotional infirmities, disabilities, and illness. Jesus came to heal the broken hearted.
Walking in divine health and healing is a big part of the freedom of My children. It is where the redeemed walk—on the high way of holiness. And what do you find on that high way? Joyful singing and shouting. Isaiah 35:8-10. Worship. The voice of thanksgiving brings wonders.
Many people today do not see healing as part of redemption. They see forgiveness of sins, but not so much healing. The Pharisees were the other way, they saw healing but not the forgiveness of sins. But redemption includes all good things, but there is a good summary of them in Psalm 103: forgiveness of sins, healing, deliverance from the pit (whether physical, financial, mental, or emotional), a life surrounded with relationships of love and compassion, days filled with good things, and your youth renewed.
Remember Moses, even at age 120, his eyes were undimmed and his youthful vigor unabated. A Covenant man, filled with My Word and covered by the blood of the lamb.
Consider when I redeemed My people from the slavery of Egypt. I tell you very specifically that they came out laden with silver, gold, and that not one of them was feeble or stumbled. And I told Abraham before Isaac, Jacob and Joseph had been born, that his descendants would go down into Egypt, be subjected to slavery, and after 400 years come out rich and would receive the inheritance of the land I had promised to his descendants.
And many of the descendants of Abraham were old when I redeemed them from slavery, and they had worked the hard toil of slaves for all of their lives. But they came out rich and healed. How? By the blood of the lamb and by eating its flesh.
Sound like the New Covenant? Jesus is the Bread of Life, and it is His body and His blood that you eat and never die the death of sin. The meal that heals and cleanses.
You were healed by the bloody scourges upon the back of Jesus and forgiven by His precious blood poured out for you as He took all your sins on Himself upon the cross, just as an unblemished spotless lamb. Christ your Passover has been sacrificed. How MUCH more than the Israelites you should be coming out from under the curse of the slavery of sin to the glorious freedom of My children. I do not want even one of you feeble or living in lack. Jesus came to undo the work of the devil.
Then He brought them out with silver and gold, and among His tribes there was not one feeble or who stumbled. Psalm 105:37.
And how did I lead them out?
And He brought forth His people with joy, His chosen ones with a joyful ringing shout. Psalm 105:43.
And that is how I lead you into healing and prosperity. You hear, receive, and learn from Me much better in worship than in fearful, crying, begging prayers.
Healing was a major part of the works and ministry of Jesus on earth. Why? In seeing Jesus you see Me, and I care for you.
When Jesus worked miracles, signs, and wonders it was not to prove He was the Messiah, He did not have to prove that, He was that. You do not have to prove who you are when you are walking in the truth. You wear it and share it as you live it.
If you read My Word, I tell you He looked at people with compassion so He taught them and healed them. All His works were done by love.
Why? I am Love and He is One with Me. The motive behind redeeming you, healing you, prospering you, forgiving you, and blessing you is love, My love for you. I so loved the world, which had actually shut Me out as best they could, that I gave My Son as My gift to you to give you back the eternal life you lost through sin. Through lawlessness.
In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10.
You do not have to beg Me to heal you, any more than you have to beg Me to save you for eternal life, and you should never do so. I am love. To heal is love’s desire. To forgive is love’s desire. To take away pain, poverty, sorrow, and evil is love’s desire. To bless is love’s desire. To curse is hate’s desire. Never curse another. You are not walking with Me if you do.
To know My Will look at what true love would do, not the sensuality the world calls love, which is selfish, often perverted, and changes quickly to hate. Look to the pure love of a hero who finds the other’s interests just as important, if not more important, than his own. Think of a fireman who will run into a burning building to rescue those trapped in there in great danger to his own life. But even more, consider the heart of a father or a mother who would go to any length to rescue their child, even to losing their own life in the process.
If you desire to give good things to your children, how much more I do for you. I want My people overflowing with My goodness. I am love, pure unchanging, unclouded, absolute love. I am your Maker and I hate nothing that I have made.
Just come to Me and receive, enter My rest. I have done everything to welcome you back into your true home. And that is what the parable of the prodigal son and his elder brother was all about—it was about the love of the father. “You are with Me always and everything I have is yours.”
All My truth is manifested in One and that One is My Word made flesh and in Him, in My Word, are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. And He is the manifestation of love in the flesh.
But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39.
Jesus fulfills every Covenant Name, that is, My magnificent promises signed in My Covenant Name of YHVH (יהוה). He is the performance of them unto you, for they are “yes” to you in Him. He paid for you to have access to them by a new and living way, that is, His sacrifice. He is your healer, Shepherd, peace, joy, your righteousness, your redeemer, your refuge, your deliverer, your Maker (all things were made through Him and for Him), your sanctifier, your provider, your helper, and He is with you always.
And He gave you My promise of the Holy Spirit, poured into your born again spirits from My throne when He returned to Me after finishing the work I gave Him to do. And My Will prospered in His hands. Isaiah 53:10,
And My magnificent promises and gift of My Spirit make you partakers of My divine nature.
Now think about this, Jesus is the fulfillment of My Covenant Names operating in the world. And what did I tell you about the gift I gave you of Jesus? As He is so are you in this world.
By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. 1 John 4:9.
And when you know and believe in the love I have for you as manifested in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, then you have confidence of good in this life and on the day of judgment; because as Jesus is before Me, so also are you in this world. There is no fear in love that I will not heal you, not provide for you, that I will torment and punish you, for perfect love (fully persuaded and complete faith in My love for you) casts out fear, because fear involves torment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. And as begin to grasp the length, depth, height, and breath taking breadth of this love that is in Me and now in you by My Spirit poured in your heart, your nature always develops in love. And you begin to discern that loving Me and being loved by Me, to be open to that flow of pure love and unhindered healing and prosperity, you must love too, your neighbor, Me, and yourself.
That is how the redeemed generation of the children of Israel lost their entrance into the abundance of the promised land. They saw My works but they never learned My ways, they did not know Me as Moses did as gracious, kind, compassionate, faithful, slow to anger, and filled with lovingkindness and truth. Why? They were never interested in spending time with Me or listening to My voice, though I invited them to all be My priests and kings. They told Moses to listen for them and then inform them what to do.
They did not love Me and they did not love each other. They tried numerous times to take over from Moses, had divisions and factions among themselves, did not trust My promises (doubted My goodness and care), and were easily led into disobeying My Words and worshipping idols. They constantly feared they would not have enough when I gave them manna everyday, quail and water from rocks.
If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, you know they do not know Me. And you should examine yourself in this too. Especially if you have not received the healing you are praying for. I want to give it to you but you may be unable to receive it due to a bitter root that has entwined the door to your heart.
But let Me return to those words of My Will that “as He is, so are you in this world.” In His prayer to Me on the night when He was betrayed He said, “I have manifested Your Name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world.” John 17:6. And He had more to say about this, “Holy Father, keep them in Your Name, the Name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are.” John 17:11. And let us back up a little bit to His Words to you that night at the Passover meal, “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” John 14:12-15. And then He continues on to tell you of the amazing gift of the Holy Spirit He will send you from Me to be in you and with you always. Anointed with power from on high. To do what? The works Jesus did and greater.
And what was He doing for you? Manifesting My Name. Yes, My Covenant promises in My Name—healer, provider, shepherd, peace, and as many as they be. So now do you understand His final command to you who believe that you cast out demons, heal the sick, tell all the good news, and baptize them and teach them all He taught you? That is doing the works He did and greater, by the power of My Spirit and the gift of the Name of Jesus, you are manifesting My magnificent promises to all who will receive your word, which is really Mine. I will do the work so that I can manifest My Name through you as Jesus let Me do when He walked in the flesh.
He is the Light of the world, but what did He tell you who are His disciples?
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16.
Let My promises work in you and then work them out to others. As you have freely received, so freely give.
But before you can give, you must receive. You cannot give what you have not received and have no clue how to receive. So let Me talk to you now about receiving and about working your faith.
I already taught you this in many places in My Word from the beginning to the end of the Bible, but let us consider one instance of it as set forth in the Gospel of Mark.
And Jesus answered saying to them, “Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you. Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.” Mark 11:22-26.
This passage is a complete teaching about the principles of faith. Faith consists of hearing and knowing My Word and acting upon it. So let us begin with what comes first.
- Jesus puts as first place, “Have faith in God.” And I define faith as coming only one way, and that is by what you HEAR. Romans 10:17. And to have faith in Me it must come from hearing and hearing My Word, especially seeing the revelation of Christ in My Word, i.e., that all My magnificent promises are fulfilled for you in Him and are yours in Him. And hearing is in various levels, from anointed teachers and preachers, from reading and meditating on My Words, from listening to the audio Bible online or speaking the Words as you read and pondering on them or singing them all day in your heart.
My child, be attentive to My Words, incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them
And health to all their body. Proverbs 4:20-22.
- Next, you must SPEAK out based on faith in My Word, to the obstacles (“mountains”) which you confront in your life. If a spirit of infirmity attacks your body or your bones, if an unclean spirit of illness of any kind attacks your flesh or mind, you must ANSWER it with the truth of My Word to cast it down. (This teaching in the Gospel of Mark is in the context of when Jesus cursed the unfruitful fig tree, and I tell you He ANSWERED the unfruitful tree.)
And when you are commanding based on My Word in My Name, you are commanding Me, as I tell you to do to enforce My Word in the earth realm. Isaiah 45:11. Jesus said when you invoke His Name, He does the work.
So speak a rebuke to the illness, and if it has a name, such as cancer or diabetes or fever or any other name, address it and tell it that by His bloody stripes you were healed, He bore your ills and pains, they are no longer yours and have no right to enter and you bow your knee only to the Name of Jesus, the LORD your healer. You bow to healing and nothing else.
And then, like I tell you to do with the mountain, you cast it out, “Be taken up and cast into the sea.” Or as Jesus did, “Be gone Satan.” And command yourself too “Be free of your infirmity,” as Jesus did the bent over woman in the synagogue. And remember he rebuked the fever that had attacked Peter’s mother-in-law. He rebuked (answered) storms as well.
So these two steps show that faith consists of hearing till you believe in your heart, and speaking out that Word to remove the obstacles in your life.
- Next, My Son addresses not casting out but calling in. And that is the prayer of faith, fully persuaded faith in Me, and I am My Word. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.
You ask for good things, for example if you have cast out cancer or diabetes or any other illness, you then pray and call in restoration and rejuvenation of all the damage that disease or infirmity caused in any part of you. Or it could have nothing to do with what you have cast out, but you want wisdom, prosperity, a promotion, a home of your own, the salvation of a loved one or colleague, the answer to a question, the conversion of government officials to My Word, or any other thing, even the gift of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything, take it to prayer.
Pray and petition for all good things and perfect gifts based on the promises you locate that back up your prayer in My Word and the law of the blood of My Son (healed, forgiven, redeemed, and all My benefits that are yours in Him) and then say, “let it be done to me according to your word.” And then do whatever I tell you in your spirit by My Spirit, who will lead you to it in My Word. And believed I have heard, for you have prayed according to My Word, which is My Will, and know when I hear, it is granted you.
So what do you do here if you believe you have received? You give joyful thanks and praise. You enter into worship and you can keep up the melody all day in your heart so I can put My Word to work in you and in those you entrusted to Me in your prayer.
And there is one more very important step to receive.
- Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.
If you are not receiving, check for bitter roots, anger, and unforgiveness. It has to be cleared out of the way if you want to receive or your pipe of faith is too clogged by the bitter roots for answers to get through to you. You need to call in “roto rooter.” And My Spirit is good at helping you with this and gives you the anointing to do it. The anointing of joy. Anger and bitter roots cannot stay when joy floods your soul. With joy you will draw water, living water, at the springs of Salvation.
But it is deeper as well. If you will not forgive others but are counting on that I have forgiven you in Christ, though it is true that I have done so, you cannot receive My forgiveness. It is a spiritual law that cannot change. I must use the same standard of judgment you use on others on you. You set the standard and the measure. It is by your words you are acquitted and by your words you are condemned.
I forgive you by the Blood of Jesus. And Jesus has paid the ransom for ALL. I have forgiven everyone, but if they do not receive this forgiveness, they will die in their own sins, but still on My part I have forgiven. Like the father in the parable of the prodigal son. He forgave the son immediately but the son remained in poverty and hard times away from the father until he decided to return and seek forgiveness. And he found he already had it when he came and he joined the celebration as a son though he had tried to come back as a servant (do you see? You must celebrate in worship to receive.)
So it is the same with you. You see yourself paid for the other’s sin by the blood and you forgive from your heart. I am not saying that justice should not be done, but I will take care of that, but on your part if you will not forgive, the standard you are setting is that the blood of My Son is not enough to take away sin, and that is what I must also apply to you. Think about that next time you take offense that your sibling made a remark about your personality or told you to stop talking.
Joseph, the son of Jacob, understood this. He forgave his brothers immediately and I could promote him to his dreams. He told them simply, “You meant it for my harm, but God worked it out for my good and your good too and the good of the whole world.” What they did was up to them, as far as he was concerned and was between them and Me, but what he did was between him and Me. Your business is to follow Me. I will take care of your enemies. You see that I did this for David. He was always respectful and showed honor to Saul because of his anointing as king, even though Saul was unjustly seeking to murder David from jealous ambition, but I took care of it and David had no sin in it. Only blessing.
I love you. Receive your healing and rejoice. Do what you could not do before as you sing praise.
