The Word is very clear that physical healing is also included in the atonement for ALL. Read Isaiah 52:13-15 and all of 53 prayerfully and dependent upon the Holy Spirit and see for yourself, also taking note of the original Hebrew in e.g. Isaiah 53:4.
“Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we ]esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted,” (Isaiah 53:4).
In the original Hebrew:
griefs = sicknesses
sorrows = pains.
Sickness and death entered the world through sin. Thus, sin is the very root or entry point of sickness.
“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned,” (Romans 5:12).
Sickness is a form of death, not life.
And what did Jesus do?
Not only did He heal us by His stripes (1 Peter 2:24) but He also atoned for sin thus destroying the very root of sickness – sin – and EVERYTHING that “grew” out of it. It’s up to each of us. We can either take Him for His Word or not. God says that Jesus paid for healing in full for all in the atonement.
Physical healing IS a part of the atonement. God says it, I believe it, and let any man who says otherwise be a liar. “Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar,” (Romans 3:4).
Here it is again in the Word in addition to Isaiah 53:
“When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:
“He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses,” (Matthew 8:16-17).
This is speaking of physical healing not just spiritual healing. God purposely highlights this fact here by not emphasizing the atonement of sins momentarily to prove that it includes healing from physical sickness and infirmities as well. I also love how an emphatic pronoun – He Himself – is used to emphasize that He paid it all, all the curse of the law upon Himself, Him and Him alone.
Just as we receive salvation by faith alone, we receive healing based on the Word by faith. Receive your healing by faith. Find every verse that pertains to healing, take it as fact, and apply it as medicine to your body by speaking it to your situation.
E.g. By Jesus’ stripes, I was healed, my child was healed, my ___ was healed.
Here’s a wonderful image the Holy Spirit gave me because He is good and knows I am a visual learner. I pray it will be a blessing to someone else in a Holy Spirit revelatory way regarding the verses in this teaching.
If this teaching and revelation from the Holy Spirit blessed you, please let me know in the comments.
