HEALING FROM UNBELIEF
SUB-TITLE: DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE HEALED?
More people are kept from being healed and made whole by unbelief than are those who just do NOT know that healing belongs to them.
Healing is a both a right and a privilege.
If we know Yeshua the Messiah, then it is our right to be healed. Both the Tanakh (the Jewish Old Testament) and the Brit Chadashah (the Jewish New Testament) tell us that healing is in the Atonement. The Torah (the five Books of Moses) tells us:
“For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that makes an atonement for the soul.” (Leviticus 17:11)
The word “atonement” from the Hebrew “kaphar” means “to cover, to cancel, to cleanse, to forgive, to purge away.”
Isaiah the prophet, 750 years before Messiah Yeshua came to earth, prophesied:
“Surely he has borne our sicknesses and diseases [Hebrew: choli], and carried away our pains [Hebrew: macob]: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our sin, rebellion, and trespasses [Hebrew: pesha], he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Tanakh: Isaiah 53:4-6)
I have included the original Hebrew root words in the passage because in the English Bible, the sense has been watered down. Why? The translators who translated from Hebrew into English did NOT believe in divine healing; and so did not believe that healing was included in the Atonement.
When Messiah Yeshua was on earth 750 years after Isaiah, he fulfilled this prophecy. In the Brit Chadashah (the Jewish New Testament) we read:
“When the even came, they brought unto him many that were possessed with demons; and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: so that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” (Mattiyahu [Matthew] 8:16-17)
Healing – spiritual, mental, and physical – is included in the Atonement. When Messiah shed His holy sinless BLOOD, it was the one-time final supreme sacrifice: payment for your sins and mine. He was the spotless lamb of G-d who was sacrificed in our place.
Messiah Yeshua took our sins upon himself on the cross stake and healed the separation between G-d and man. Adam, the first man who lived, caused that separation in the Garden of Eden. Adam separated us from G-d. Separation from G-d cuts us off from G-d's life. When we are separated from the life of G-d, the result is spiritual death. Spiritual death produces physical death. G-d sent His Son, Yeshua, to heal the separation and connect us with the life source of G-d so our spirits could be reborn eternally, and our bodies could have healing life available up until it is time for us to leave this earth.
By one man [Adam] sin came into the world, and death by sin.
By one man [Messiah] many shall be made righteous (have right standing with G-d).
“For as by the disobedience of one man [Adam] many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one [Messiah] shall many be made righteous.”
Healing belongs to you! Yeshua has connected you with the life source of G-d. Messiah is your atonement: your covering. If you are NOT sure that G-d sent His Son to earth to pay for your sins, then pray this prayer:
“G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, if Yeshua is really your Son … and if Yeshua is really my Messiah … then reveal Him to me. I ask you to heal me today. Please forgive my sins. I will serve you the rest of my life.”
You're going to have a wonderful future, my friend!
Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai.
