Healing: Faith is An Action

Saturday November 17, 2012

In Luke 5:15-20 people came to hear first and then to be healed. The power of the Lord was present to heal, but the  healing that is recorded was a paralyzed man whose friends acted in faith to lower him through a roof to access Jesus. Faith must be a visible act. Jesus demonstrated by healing  the paralytic that He also had the power  to forgive sins. In John 3:14, 2 Cor. 5:21, Gal. 3:13, Rom. 5:12 Jesus’ death on the cross provided for our sacrifice (payment for the consequence of sin) and our substitution (the judgment for our sin). Sickness is  the process of death. When Jesus dealt with sin, He dealt with sickness. Stay in and fulfill your purpose. Isaiah 52:13- 53:4 tell us what is Jesus’ finished purpose- salvation, healing, peace. Redemption includes healing (Matt. 8:17, Is. 53:1, 1 Peter 2:24). Because of Jesus, we were and are healed. Choose to believe that you are healed. Pastor Dale shares how he acted on the Word to receive his healing from asthma. Faith is an act. The price was paid on the cross. Put your faith in the direction of your healing.
