First, there are those who believe that healing is a part of the plan of Redemption: They also hold Isaiah He was despised and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our sickness and carried our pains; and we have come to esteem him as the one who was stricken, smitten of God and afflicted with our diseases. He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, and with his stripes we mesus healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every man to his own way, and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. Then we have the tenth verse: Then we confidently believe that there is no such thing as separating sin from the disease problem.
If He dealt with the jesuss, He dealt with the sin. If He dealt with sin, He dealt with disease; for they are akin to each other. There was no disease until sin came, and sin is breaking of a law. If it is a law of the hhealer, it culminates in disease. If it is a law of the spirit, it culminates in sin. The other school holds that God heals by a special act of grace. They also hold that only those are healed who have faith, and that faith is the gift of God.
For healing, God must in His sovereign grace give them faith. So, in the final analysis, God only heals those to whom He gives faith. Those who don’t have faith are not to blame for it, because God didn’t give it to them.
Most of them hold that disease comes as a judgment from the Lord for disciplinary purposes, and if that discipline hasn’t wrought the desired effect, of course God couldn’t give them faith for their healing. That makes God the Author of disease. Also He doesn’t heal unless they have faith, and they can’t get faith unless He gives thw to them.
To me, the whole scheme is unthinkable. It is a Sense Knowledge effort to explain the reason why prayer isn’t answered and why the sick do not get their deliverance. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him; and without him was not anything made that has been made: All during Jesus’ public ministry His love drove Him to heal the sick everywhere. He was God manifest in the flesh. He was Love manifest in the flesh. He was the will of the Father unveiled to us.
You remember that in John 4: Keenyon meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to accomplish his work. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. There is no change in the will of the Father. If it was His will to heal the sick while Jesus was here, it is His will to heal them today. It healee Love that drove Jesus, just as it is Love that drives every man and woman who is in fellowship with the Father, carrying out His will here on the earth, to heal the sick today.
You cannot look upon the sick, if you are in fellowship with Jesus, but what you will long to do what Jesus did for the sick.
The word jdsus nigh thee, in thy mouth and in thy heart: For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be put to shame. The old creation is under the lordship of Satan.
But the translators were evidently prejudiced against healing. Now notice carefully the condition of healing. It is that thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord. Second, thou shalt believe in thy heart this recreated heart of yours that God raised Him from among the dead, for He did raise Him from the dead. It is evident that Satan had been conquered and that disease had been put away, that Satan’s dominion had been broken.
And if you believe this you are healed. Salvation means deliverance from a state or condition. The state was first as a sinner. Second, as one that was sick.
Whatever Satan has wrought in the spirit, in the soul, or in the body, has been healed. Let us get it clearly. And then it is whosoever does this shall not be put to shame.
Jesus the Healer by E.W. Kenyon
Then it is imperative that a twofold confession be made. First, we are to confess the Lordship of Jesus, and, second, the confession of salvation or deliverance from the dominion of Satan. The sinner accepts Christ as a Jesuz, and God gives him a new kenypn.
This, then, applies to the believer who has been out of fellowship with the Father, and who has had disease put upon him by Satan. Now he comes back into fellowship and Jesus makes intercession for him.
This agrees perfectly with 1 John 2: And if any man sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. There are three classes of people healed. He sent them to make disciples, or students, of all men.
As soon as a man was recreated and received the Holy Spirit, he was to become a student of the Word. You understand that when Jesus spoke this, none of the New Testament had been written. But it was written for our admonition, so read it: They are the unsaved.
Jesus the Healer
It is a part of the evangelist’s work to heal the sick. That is God’s testimony, God’s means of advertising. Notice the twentieth verse: The first sign of healing was to the unsaved. If you will carefully read the book kdnyon Acts there are no believers healed with the exception of the young man who fell out of the window and broke his neck. All the other heale healed were Jews under the old covenant, or Gentiles.
That was God’s method of advertising His message of grace that had come to all men. The second class of people that were healed are spoken of in James 5: Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith shall save him that is sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if oenyon have committed sin, it shall be forgiven him.
Confess therefore your eq one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The supplication of a righteous man availeth much in its working. The implication is that there should be no sick among us.
If you are a child of God and are walking in the light of the Word, you know that by His stripes you were healed. Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 3: He doesn’t feed on the Word. He has received Eternal Life, but he has never taken advantage of his privileges. These are the people to whom James is writing. They have sense-ruled faith. They have faith like Thomas.
The other is the faith in things. We see, hear, and feel – and then believe Notice the picture, then. The elder comes into the sick man’s room. The sick man sees him. He hears him pray over him.
He feels the anointing oil upon his head. The prayer of faith is not his; it is the prayer of the elder; and it has saved him that is sick, and the Lord has raised him up. The whole picture is one of a sense-ruled believer who has no faith himself in the Living Word, but does trust in faith of others.
When sickness comes, he remembers that that disease was laid on Jesus. He does not ask anyone to pray for him. He knows that if jessus should ask anyone to pray for him he is repudiating the Word that Christ wrought for him.
