According to Hebrews 53:5 and 1 Peter 2:24, our actual healing took place at Calvary 2,000 years ago. It is faith that we were healed at Calvary that brings the physical manifestation of healing into existence.
The enemy (snake) wants you to believed that supernatural healing isn’t possible! However, I wanted to remind you that before Jesus sent out 72 disciples in Luke 10:1, He said this to them in Luke 10:19, “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”
The enemy I am referring to is doubt and if doubt sank Peter, then it can also punch holes in our faith as well. Doubt is caustic to true faith.
Jesus gave His disciples many examples of the power of faith and the importance of conquering doubt. Check out what He said in Mathew 21:18-21:
“Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, ‘Let no fruit grow on you ever again.’ Immediately the fig tree withered away. And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, ‘How did the fig tree wither away so soon?’ So Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,” it will be done’”.
Notice that He said we must have faith and not doubt. That’s a problem with most of us. We may think we have faith, but when the crunch comes, we actually can be crippled by doubt. Doubt is a faith killer.
If this message hits home for you, whenever doubt creeps into your mind, go to God for help to strengthen your faith. You should always refresh your mind with scriptural evidence of God’s sure promises.
Let me close with this powerful confirming and affirming fact: Jesus, bore our griefs, infirmities, sicknesses and pain and carried our sorrows. He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities: the punishment which brought our healing was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).
God in Christ JESUS healed every sickness, disease, and infirmity 2,000 years ago at CALVARY!
