it-is-finishedAtonement II

This might seem to be going over the same issue as last week.

It is but it needs to be fully and completely understood before we can move on..

The question raised by the progression from the promise of healing …from God’s Name “I AM the God who heals you” to  the Messianic promise in Isaiah to it’s fulfillment in the New Testament – The New Covenant – in Peter’s first letter is this

If His nature is to heal…..the promise is that through The Christ we ARE healed and the declaration post the cross and pentecost that we the we HAVE BEEN  healed then why is it not an every day happening?

Do we believe that all the work has been done for us?

From God declaring  “it is My NAME”

To you ARE healed in

Is 53:5
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his stripes we are healed.

to -We HAVE BEEN healed in

1 Peter 2:24
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by these wounds we have been healed

then it’s done and enacted – that’s it – It is Finished!

Mmmmm!….Then why are we in the state we’re in?

If we have been healed – it’s done –  past tense – every sickness dealt with – All for everybody – saved or unsaved through all time…then WHY are seeing so little of the promise.

…..there must be  reasons why we do not see healing and miracles on a regular basis.

It’s certainly not Heaven’s end of the arrangement…it’s verily verily verily from Heaven’s perspective.

Consider from your experience and understanding and revelation what the blockages might be….

Next week we will start on identifying the problems….and the solutions….one at a time.

Task
  1. Read Is 53 and 1 Peter – again
    Note : PLEASE do not simply read them through once…as though it is something you already know all about . Read them several times…feeding on the revealed truths and the challenges.
  2. Pray for revelation : If we are already healed why are we not seeing it?
  3. Meditate on these verse and the fact that it was included in Jesus’ plan when He came. Ask God to open it up to you. Read the verses slowly and take it ALL in.

 

Don’t rationalise the Scriptures away. Don’t ignore them. Don’t discount them. Don’t spiritualise them.

Ask yourself the following questions about the Scriptures and the reasons for His coming and the work He accomplished.

 

Q: Do you REALLY believe at we are ALL already healed?….If that seems like hype and nonsense do not pass GO until you have at least tried to reconcile your understanding with the Scripture.

Q: If that is the case how can that be?

Q: What are the blockages in me?

Q: Does something need to change in me?

 

Application

Continue to read the books you started last week….any book by Smith Wigglesworth or John G Lake over the next month

The next time you pray for someone, bring to mind the revelation you received through this Scripture.
