The title is being used to draw you into this blog and its message. The title contains a true message to all believers IN Jesus Christ. I will share with you explanation of this truth. I implore you to read this full series.
The bottom line message is "where there is no sin there is no sickness and no disease."
On Friday evening, November 9, 2012, as I humbled myself before God and in prayer asked for the prophetic message from Jesus that He wanted me to receive, this is what the Holy Spirit spoke within me. Dorothy - Sit before Me and still your heart. Rest in Me and I will bless you and your service to Me. Keep listening as I speak.
Tomorrow you will receive a message that you are to respond to. Listen to Me as I instruct you in that response. You will be enlightened in spirit and receive direction from this.
I am still guiding you. Do not be impatient. My Words are yours to use and will not return to Me in vain. Move forward as I speak. Serve Me with all your might. I will guide you and never leave you. Rest now, let not your heart be troubled. I am in control of all.
What was the message I was to receive the next day, Saturday, November 10? It was delivered Saturday morning through a children's DVD, part of the Superbook series provided through the 700 Club. I had just received this DVD in the mail a day or two before and had not yet opened the envelope it came in. My five-year old grandson spent the weekend at my home and we watched the DVD together. The video is titled Miracles of Jesus.
One Message: Jesus calls us to have faith like that of a child.
As we began to watch the video, the first miracle to be featured was the miracle of the healing of a paralytic. This miracle is recorded in all three of the Synoptic Gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke. I am quoting the passage from Luke, since Luke was written primarily with Gentiles as its readership.
Jesus Forgives and Heals a Paralytic - Luke 5:17-26 (NKJV)
17 Now it happened on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out of every town of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them. 18 Then behold, men brought on a bed a man who was paralyzed, whom they sought to bring in and lay before Him. 19 And when they could not find how they might bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the housetop and let him down with his bed through the tiling into the midst before Jesus.
20 When He saw their faith, He said to him, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.”
21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, “Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, He answered and said to them, “Why are you reasoning in your hearts? 23 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise up and walk’? 24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”—He said to the man who was paralyzed, “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.”
25 Immediately he rose up before them, took up what he had been lying on, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. 26 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God and were filled with fear, saying, “We have seen strange things today!”
First, I noticed when asked by someone in the crowd about where they were taking this man. The response was "we are taking him to Jesus who can perform miracles." Another Message: Example of Faith needed - Belief that Jesus has the authority and the power and does perform miracles of healing.
Then, through the words the animated Jesus spoke, what stood out and what the revelation is that Jesus wanted me to receive was the very strong direct connection between forgiveness of sins and miracles of healing.
The message to focus and elaborate on. There is a direct, I repeat, a direct connection between receiving forgiveness of sins AND receiving miracles of healing to walk in wellness.
Matthew 9:5 Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’?
Luke 5:23 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise up and walk’?
Mark 2:9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’? "
Forgiveness of sin and healing go hand in hand. Genuine repentance of the heart = forgiveness of all sin; past, present and future, and the healing of the body. (As well as awakening your spirit and healing your soul.)
Early this morning (Tuesday), I decided to look at the wording of Isaiah 53:5-6 and 1 Peter 2:24. A literal reading of each of these verses confirm the very same thing as revealed through the healing miracle of the paralyzed man. In Part 2, we will walk through these verses.
I came to Jesus with genuine heart repentance on October 2, 2001. Within a week, I experienced the miracle healing of my physical heart. I believe Jesus brought me back from the edge of death. About six weeks later, Jesus revealed His suffering and crucifixion to me through a life threatening internal bleed event. In September of 2012, I received a healing miracle in the midst of having a stroke. Over the years I have taken in the heart knowledge and understanding that Jesus wants me to learn and have understanding concerning His ways for healing. I have been waiting for the time to arrive when Jesus actively uses me to teach and to operate in the area of miracles and healing. With this revelation and the understanding I am gaining, I believe the needed ingredient is being added. I am anxious to see where Jesus is going to go with all of this.
In this series I am going to offer explanation of the need for and what genuine heart repentance is; that forgiveness of sin includes all sin-past present and future; about justification and being seen as without sin before God; about being a new creation in Christ; answer the question about sin after receiving forgiveness of all sin; rapping up with the true message that genuine heart repentance yields forgiveness of all sin and with the forgiveness of all sin/being sinless, healing and wellness is the norm.
Follow along with me through this series of three to four blogs.
Early in 2002, as I was learning more about the work of the Holy Spirit, He spoke this "word of wisdom" that has become engrained in me,
"You Must Believe In Order To Receive."
You Are Sinless, You Are Healed (Part 2)
Thank you Dorothy and the H. S. - I have recently received out of the blue serious news concerning my eye sight. I will follow your blogs with devoted interest as I believe that this eye "sickness" is in the Lords plan for me - whatever that is. Praise be to God who is over all things.
