HEALING IS YOUR INHERITANCE
Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; Acts 10:38
Isaiah 53:4-5 “Surely He has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was on Him; and with His stripes we ourselves are healed.”
Healing belongs to you in Christ because it is your inheritance. Healing is your birthright. It is your daily bread. We understand from scriptures that there are certain things that Jesus Christ has already accomplished for us in His finished works and in that finished work, we can legitimately enjoy all the things that He’s done for us. Our opening scripture reveals to us that Jesus bore our griefs, carried our sorrows, and was stripped in order that we may be healed. Acts 10:38 tells us that Jesus was anointed for one reason: that we may be healed. So, all the provisions for our healing have been made in Christ Jesus. Are you in Christ? Then your healing is fully paid for. As much as no one can deny that Jesus was stripped, bruised, and crucified, no one can deny that your healing has been delivered to your hands.
Beloved, understand that you do not need a big faith or special faith to enjoy your inheritance in Christ; they belong to you in Christ, on the bill of grace. Healing is one of your inheritances and birth rights in Christ. It is yours already in Christ. You can enjoy healing every day of your life, even when you are old and well stricken in age. Jesus Christ bore your sicknesses and diseases, He bore your infirmities, and by the stripes that wounded Him, you are healed. The punishment required to give you peace was upon Jesus Christ. So, as surely as Jesus Christ was wounded, you are healed. As undoubtedly as Jesus Christ was beaten, you are healed. Healing is your birthright. See your sicknesses and diseases on Jesus Christ, see Him carrying them in real time. And if He has carried them, you cannot carry them anymore. See yourself whole and free from every sickness and disease today. You are healed in the name of Jesus Christ.
