God Be God

"Jesus died so that NO WORK of the enemy could EVER harm us."

“God does not heal today.” REALLY? First proof positive, He created the immune system. He gave the body the ability to fight off disease and heal itself. Second proof, He has given to men vast medical knowledge to know how to heal the body, how to perform successful surgeries, and to craft medicine. But like any other part of culture, medicine done outside of God's wisdom will always fail. The truth comes from Him and is sustained by Him.

Those two factors alone should seal it for you. But there is a third found throughout the Scriptures. JESUS. Jesus came to bring a full and complete salvation. The word translated "salvation" includes every part of life and success and deliverance and healing. God left nothing out of who He is. There is our key. Salvation was not meant to simply save us from sin and hell. God wanted an avenue where He could BE GOD, the abundant, generous, overflowing God that is His nature. He wanted to be more than enough, to make us more than conquerors, to give to excess in ways we do not expect.

Jesus died so that NO WORK of the enemy could EVER harm us.

“[The Gospel] regarding His Son, Who as to the flesh (His human nature) was descended from David, And [as to His divine nature] according to the Spirit of holiness was openly designated the Son of God in power [in a striking, triumphant and miraculous manner] by His resurrection from the dead, even Jesus Christ our Lord (the Messiah, the Anointed One).” (Romans 1:3-4 AMPC)

Do you really believe that God would sacrifice His only Son, created without sin, in such a horrific manner but after raising Him in such a spectacular fashion, refuse to give us what Jesus spent all His time doing? Again and again in the gospels, Jesus healed. Multitudes. Every single sick or tormented person left healed. Individuals. Jew and Gentile. (So ethnicity is not an excuse.)

In Acts, after Jesus returned to sit at the Father's right hand, miracles were performed at the hands of Peter and John and Paul. And in 1 Corinthians, gifts are given to the church specific to healing.

We make excuses for what we don't understand, for what we fear, and some of that fear is of offending God. How dare we expect Him to do some miracle for us after all He did. Friends, THAT IS THE POINT. After all He did, He wants to heal, to rescue, to set free. And I have seen Him do so. There are testimonies of miracles all around us. A testimony is proof of something God will do again. He's not a one-time God.

He's an every-single-time God. The enemy would have us give up on healing and call it respect. He would have us swallow hopelessness and label it God's will. The enemy would have us believe God is wishy-washy and continually changing His mind, then label that a closed door. According to Him, God is always opening and closing doors at whim.

But no. This is one door Jesus removed forever. Jesus will ALWAYS heal. That is who He is. He is Jehovah Rapha, the Lord that heals. Forever. As He was in the Old Covenant, He was after His Resurrection, He is at the present time, and He will be in the future until ...

Proof number four, until He removes death for good. That's the goal, Nicole. No more death. And it will happen because the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, is the God of the heavens and earth, the God of all nations, the God who sent His Son to be everything man would ever need to not simply survive, but thrive. Every single day, all year long, for a lifetime and into eternity, health and healing is ours. Forever we have peace beyond our understanding with all our needs met. If God so clothe the grass, if He feeds the sparrows, how much more will He care for you?

  • “The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.
