How to Receive Healing and Divine Health
The key: go directly to Jesus Christ. He is the healer. He is the savior. He is the Lord God Almighty. He has all authority in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18). When someone finds Him and His presence and glory, they find healing in all areas of their life. Amen.
Also, to receive divine health:
One – Abide in Him- John 15:7
Two – Let the word work its healing power in you
Three – John 5 – Will you be made whole? Man with infirmity for 38 years healed at Pool of Bethesda – Find someone who will believe with you.
Abide in Him- John 15:7
1 John 3:6 – “Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.”
We must cooperate with Him – John 8:31-32 – “Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’” John 8:31-32
How to receive healing
One – Receive the word of healing
Psalm 107:20 – He sent his word and healed them
Two – Let the wrd work its healing pwr in you
1 Thessalonians 2:13 – word works effectually in them that believe
Three – John 5 – will you be made whole – Find someone who will believe with you.
Psalm 89:34 – his word is established forever.
Why is that unbelievers sometimes get healed quickly, while sometimes believers may not be healed as fast?
T.L. Osborne – “Because the unbeliever gets healed because of God’s mercy, while the believer gets healed because of God’s covenant. However, unbelievers are the ones who lose their healing.”
Believers are under an entire different system. Imagine two rooms: “Mercy room” and “Covenant room.” Believers have to go to the Covenant room and learn about it before they can receive their healing.
People lose their healing because there is no foundation. The covenant is part of that foundation.
The first covenant God made with Israel after they left Egypt: the covenant of healing.
Healing in Book of Numbers,
fulfilled in Jesus Christ
Numbers 21:8-9 – “Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.’ So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.”
Israel came to the wilderness. Many were bitten by serpents, got sick and died. Moses cried out to the Lord. The Lord said take this pole, put a serpent on it, and whoever looks at the serpent will be healed. The serpent is symbolic of Christ on the cross.
In John 3, Jesus said: “‘And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.’” John 3:14-15
Key to miracles: a continual look by faith at Jesus Christ. The healing process begins and goes on while I look at Christ. Looking by faith.
Look – to receive; to be clothed with; to be overcome by; to be enraptured in. Look means a present experience. The One I see will clothe
- I will walk in Him, and He will walk in me. Look means a union of the two coming together.
You are no longer aware of yourself, your sickness, your pain, or anyone else. You become aware of Him and totally conscious of Him.
Preparation is: the word building faith in you. It enables you to draw near to Him.
Jeremiah 33:3 – “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”
It begins with calling Him, knocking. And visiting His presence.
He answers. He shows you Himself, great and mighty things which you do not know. That happens when you touch Him with your faith. Your faith is lifted as the word pours within you. Worship enables the spirit to release what’s within. Every time you worship, the soul and body are laid aside, and the spirit comes into action. There is a release of the river Jesus talked about. Living water touches your soul.
Worship is in the innermost holy sanctuary.
