A Healer Still

Updated on January 13, 2011

The Word 'saved' is the greek word 'sozo' which means .. To save.. Keep safe and sound .. To rescue from danger and/or destruction .. To save a suffering one from perishing or from disease .. To make well, heal, restore to health .. To preserve one who is in danger of destruction .. To deliver from the penalties of the Messianic judgement .. To save from the evils which obstruct the reception of the Messianic deliverance. .. Make whole, heal, be whole. The greek word 'sozo' is used intermittently throughout the New Testament as .. saved .. healed .. made well.

Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Ti 2:4

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Rom. 10:9

"Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble the Teacher." But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, "Do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well." Luke 8:49-50

We can limit God through our thinking, or our beliefs and unbeliefs, or through strongholds that we have allowed the enemy to plant within our minds and feelings.
As Christians, we have no problem seeing the benefits and the promises of what the shed "Blood" of Christ has accomplished for our very lives. But, when it comes to the "Body" of Christ and seeing the benefits of His flogged and bruised Body, we fall into doubt and unbelief and confusion about why Jesus suffered such scourging and how that relates to our own lives. And the Bible even emphasizes .. Jesus never meant for this to be so. The Bible says that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. And Jesus goes on to commend people for their great faith, during his earthly life. Rightly dividing the Word of God, we would then have to conclude that Jesus taught and preached "healing". If Jesus had kept silent concerning healing then few, if any people would have sought Him for healing. Instead, He had multitudes of people flocking Him and seeking Him for their healing.

1 Corinthians 5 even tells us that many become sick and weak because they fail to discern the Body of Christ. When receiving Communion, what is the unworthy manner with which one eats the bread and drinks the cup? It is the failure to recognize and acknowledge what His broken Body has accomplished and what His spilled Blood has accomplished for us as individuals.

Jesus is the same today as He was when He walked this earth. He was a healer then and He is a Healer now.

In the OT, what were the Israelites commanded to do by God, with their passover lambs? They were told to use the blood to mark their doorposts and to eat the passover lamb. And soon after this, the Israelites left Egypt and when they departed Egypt they were both healthy and whole, and their animals were made healthy as well. They left Egypt with the favor and blessings of God permeating their lives.

The curse of death, sickness, disease, and need comes to us through sin. But Jesus has become our sin so that we no longer have to suffer under the curse. He became sick that we might be well. He became poor that we might be rich. He became separated from the Father that we might be joined to the Father. He went to hell that we might go to heaven.

If you or someone you know, has failed to receive a healing in the past, it is crucial that you do not allow the past experience to alter or change God's Word. In other words, do not pull God's Word down to the level of your past experiences. Instead, let your experiences reach up to the level of Him and His Word.

      Amen Friend and thanks. Man, it would be a wonderful thing if there more Pastors and believers that would take the time as the Brother of your church did, to study Communion .. And give a thorough teaching of such. God bless you!

      A Brother at our church did a very thorough teaching on healing and Yah's will for it and how in taking communion people tend to only focus on the cup representing His blood that washes away our sins, but they do not focus on His broken body that was for our healing...

      Your article is a good reminder of this.

      Thanks for sharing!
