ACCEPT IT HE PAID FOR IT ALL
According to John 3:17, “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” Man was lost all the way from the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. When they disobeyed the word of God by listening to the serpent; man sinned and the consequences of sin came upon man. Man also lost the glorious covering over him and sickness had its way. In the beginning man had nothing to do with sin or sickness until disobedience was found in man through the effort of the serpent. The game is similar today; do men listen to God or the devil? See the wickedness in the world today and tell me if it is a world that listens to the word of God.
God made provision for man called reconciliation (2nd Cor. 5:11-21). God took the form of man, came into the world and paid the price for the fall of man on Calvary’s Cross (1st Cor. 6:20). He gave his life, first by going to the whipping post, where he was lashed and whipped as to lacerate his whole body, which was prophetic and a pre-requisite for those who will believe. By that he fulfilled Isaiah 53:5; by his stripes we are healed. Also he was crucified, nailed to the cross and wearing a crown of thorns, bleeding from everywhere and finally they pierced his side. All the shedding of his blood was for our sins and iniquities. Isaiah 53:4-5 clearly stated, “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him and with his stripes we are healed.” This Jesus Christ fulfilled. He paid for our sins with his blood and paid for sickness and diseases by his stripes. It is all paid for, all we need is to accept it. Exchange our garment of sin for the garment of righteousness by the washing of the blood of Jesus Christ through repentance. We also exchange our garment of diseases and sickness with the garment of stripes on Jesus Christ.
Now you need to take God at his word. Salvation is God making payment for your sins and sicknesses. Sin concerns the soul and spirit realm, whereas sickness concerns the realm of the body where demons love to occupy and possess. Remember Job 2:7, “So went satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.” Now you can see that sickness is not a friend but a destroyer from satan. If you as a Christian is sick, it does not mean satan is in you. Christ is in you but the devil wants to get to the body and create doubt, worry and fear; all these are sources of energy for the devil to get to you. Job said, “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.” That is why Jesus always said, “Fear not.” Isaiah 41:10 states, “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Even in any condition we find our self, God is present. He did not abandon Job and surely He will not abandon any of us his children that put their trust in him.
The devil attacks the body when a Christian is sick. He cannot mess with the soul and spirit which is the real you (new creation). Sickness is of the devil and these demons stay in the body (flesh) zone. When you cast out devils they come out of the body where they cause pain, destruction, distraction etc. God never planned for us to be sick, because he already made the payment for complete salvation. Sad to see some Christians who believe in salvation of the soul, but doubt, deny or ignore the salvation of the body (by his stripes ye are healed, believe it). This is believing part of the word of God. The reason is because satan makes some people believe that sickness is from God and we need to endure it. What a lie of the devil; Jesus Christ paid for our sicknesses already, even before he paid for our sins on the cross. If you do not believe He paid for it all; then you are a fifty percent believer in the finished work of our Lord Jesus. Religion and the traditions of men make people accept that God allows sickness to test them or that sickness is from God. No it is not; He paid for your salvation already. Sickness is of satan and not from God.
You need to confess your healing from sickness, like you confess your salvation from sin, (Rom. 10:10). Never number yourself among the sick if you are saved. The gospel of the kingdom, the good news says that we should confess, preach and accept the full payment made by Jesus Christ for our salvation: which is salvation for the body, soul and spirit. Salvation includes sin and sickness/physical health solutions or payment by our Lord Jesus Christ: Remember Psalm 103:3 (who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases). Call to mind that the gospel is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth (Rom.1:16).
It is the spirits of infirmities that cause sickness. They are like seeds that satan introduces into you and if you allow it will destroy you. By the spirit of redemption we have absolute authority, power to rebuke and cast them out: Jesus Christ already paid for it all; forget not all his benefits (Psalm 103:2). When a tumor arises, as you rebuke and cast it out in the name of Jesus Christ, it may disappear immediately or dissolve gradually. To deal with these seeds of infirmity you must put your faith into action with boldness and confidence; that it has been paid for and you have the authority and power to rebuke and cast out these demons of infirmities.
When you are saved you become a new creature (2nd Cor.5:17), old things are passed away, behold all things become new. Before you were saved sin and sickness had power over you and the devil knows that: But now you are saved by accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord. This gives you authority, power and an overcoming life path over sin, sickness and anything contrary to the spirit of God. The Holy Ghost is in you and all satan can do is attack the body with his demons of infirmities. The body is the only part that the devil can bring sickness and pain to but not the soul or spirit of the saved.
At death the soul and spirit go back to God: But during the translation time the body of the saved, dead or alive will be changed in a twinkling of an eye. The body becomes new and spiritual, no more sickness, pain sorrow disease, infirmities or death anymore. Jesus Christ has arrived to claim his purchased possession and fulfill John 14:1-3, 1st Cor. 15:51-58, 1st Thess. 4:13-18. Get saved, get salvation (faith with action in Jesus Christ) which is believing unto eternal life, it is the free gift of God. Then you will have authority and power over sin, sickness and devils. Do not be a half believer. To be a full believer you must accept and use the authority of salvation: it is paid for already. There is no half salvation. Some accept salvation for sin but reject salvation for infirmities. Repent and be converted, half salvation is not correct. Jesus Christ paid for it all, accept it here and now, avoid delay.
