Grace, Love and Peace to each and everyone in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Knowing what belongs to us will give us a greater idea of who we are, what we can ask and what we can claim.
As a believer there are certain truths that we need to understand and if we don’t know or understand we will be doing everything wrong.
What else belongs to us because of our redemption in Christ?
Healing is all ours because we have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus.
Yet He Himself bore our sicknesses,
and He carried our pains;
but we in turn regarded Him stricken,
struck down by God, and afflicted.
5 But He was pierced because of our transgressions,
crushed because of our iniquities;
punishment for our peace was on Him,
and we are healed by His wounds.
In the Original Hebrew, we will find that the words “grief” and “sorrows” in verse 4 are correctly translated, “Surely He hath borne our sickness or disease, and carried our pains: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted”
We will also notice in 1 Peter 2:24 – Peter was looking back to the cross
He Himself bore our sins
in His body on the tree,
so that, having died to sins,
we might live for righteousness;
you have been healed by His wounds.
Peter was not prophesying; he was looking back to Calvary and he was stating a fact about something that had already occured.
Many people say Why doesn’t God heal me?”
God does not hela you because healing already belongs to you now.
We are healed by His wounds.
