Taking the “If” Out of Healing


And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. —Matthew 8:3

What did Jesus do when this leper said, “I know You’re able to heal me, Lord, but I don’t know if You’re willing”? Did Jesus say, “Now, Brother, I’ll have to fast and pray first to see if it’s God’s will to heal you”? No, Jesus answered the question for all mankind right there. He turned to that man and said, “I will; be thou clean.” In other words, Jesus was saying, “Why in the world would you doubt a thing like that? If I’m able, surely I’m willing.” We shouldn’t have any question in our hearts about God’s will to heal. Jesus certainly didn’t. He didn’t hesitate when the leper said to Him, “If You will.” Immediately Jesus turned to the man and said, “Of course, I will. That’s part of My commission. That’s part of the reason I came. Of course it’s My will for you to be whole.” Jesus took the “if” right out of the healing issue. He didn’t have to beg, plead, or spend three days finding God’s will about healing. He just automatically said, “I will heal you.” Why? Because Jesus was the will of God in action. Jesus was the expression of the will of God. Jesus didn’t say, “I heal on My own.” He said, “The Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works” (John 14:10). Therefore, for Jesus to heal the leper, it had to be God’s will because it was the Father, dwelling inside Jesus, who did the work.

My Confession: God’s Word has built an unshakable confidence in me that God wants me healthy. So I boldly say, “I am healed.” And the Holy Spirit in me does the work.

Please read these scriptures (Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24; Psalm 103:3; Matthew 4:23, 8:3. Revelation 22:6.)

Week # 4

Scripture Reading: Luke 17

According to Luke 17:14, what did Jesus say to the lepers when they called out. Choose from A-D

A “Go, show yourselves to the priests.”
B “Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”
C “Repent of your sins and be baptized.”
D “If you had not sinned, you would not have been afflicted with leprosy.”

Answer: (G) (Luke 17:14)

According to this study: Questions:
1). Do we have to fast and pray for healing today?
No, we must believe God’s Word that says, “by Jesus’ stripes we are healed”, but it’s good to fast and pray for answers to our prayers too.

2). How can we take the “if” out of healing?
We take the “If” out when we truly trust and believe God’s Word, and then boldly say, “I am healed

3). Who does the healing?

It was the Father, dwelling inside Jesus, who did the work; and now days the Holy Spirit does the work through the Father. (Roman 8:11) says, “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.”

NUGGETS:

Seek godly input.
One key component to finding God’s will is to seek the input of godly advisors in your life. If you don’t currently have 3-4 godly mentors, then I would highly recommend that you seek them out right away.

Think of it this way: you should understand that you are basically a composite of the five people you spend the most time with. So, then, it is vital that you choose those five people well. If you choose to surround yourself with godly advisors, they will be instrumental in helping you discern God’s plan for your life. But if you surround yourself with people who are far from God, your hope of finding His best for your life will be greatly diminished.

Proverbs 11:14
Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.
The church is designed to help you greatly with this. I would encourage you to be in church every single time the doors are opened. The more you involve yourself with a community of believers, the greater your chances will be of finding godly men and women who can help you discern God’s will.

Oops!

Answer: (A) (Luke 17:14) Week # 4

I always go back to look over my study and this one I found a mistake; answer for question “According to Luke 17” was incorrect; it should have been (A), which has been corrected. So sorry! Thanks for understanding.
