WE EXCHANGED OUR SICKNESS FOR HIS HEALTH. (1ST PETER 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.)
WE EXCHANGE OUR SORROW FOR HIS JOY. (ISAIAH 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.)
WHY DON'T EVERYONE THAT SAYS THEY BELIEVE THE WHOLE BIBLE, BELIEVE ALL OF THIS?
IF I SAID TO YOU, "YOU ARE NOT BORN AGAIN", YOU WOULD PROBABLY TAKE OFFENCE TO THAT. NOW, IF I ASKED YOU HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU ARE BORN AGAIN, YOU WOULD TELL ME THAT THE BIBLE SAYS IT AND JESUS DIED FOR YOUR SINS. THIS IS GREAT BUT THAT IS NOT ALL HE DID. HE TOOK THOSE STRIPES ON HIS BODY SO YOU WOULDN'T HAVE TO BE SICK. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE THIS, HE TOOK THOSE STRIPES IN VAIN. YOU BELIEVE ONLY HALF OF WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR YOU.
NOW GETTING BACK TO MY ORIGINAL QUESTION OF WHY I TALK SO MUCH ABOUT HEALING. FIRST, IT IS BECAUSE I LOVE YOU AND BELIEVE THIS IS WHAT JESUS WOULD WANT ME TO DO. THE OTHER REASON IS THAT I AM PRAYING THAT ONE DAY YOU WILL GET SO TIRE OF BEING SICK THAT YOU WILL FINALLY GET INTO GOD'S WORD AND FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF THAT ALL OF THIS IS TRUE AND YOU ARE HEALED. YOU WILL FINALLY REALIZE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN TRUSTING THE DOCTOR'S WORDS RATHER THAN THE WORD OF JESUS. YOU WILL REALIZE HOW WRONG THIS IS AND YOU WILL FINALLY RECEIVE YOUR HEALING. UNTIL THAT TIME THOUGH, KEEP DOING WHAT YOUR DOCTOR SAYS AND KEEP TAKING YOUR MEDICINES. I BELIEVE GOD PUT DOCTORS HERE TO KEEP US ALIVE UNTIL WE HAVE FAITH ENOUGH TO BELIEVE HIS WORD. YOU WILL KNOW WHEN IT IS TIME.
JUST THINK ABOUT THIS, IF YOU CAN BELIEVE YOU ARE BORN AGAIN, WHY NOT BELIEVE YOU ARE HEALED? JESUS DID IT ALL AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS HAVE FAITH TO BELIEVE IT. WON'T YOU BELIEVE IT TODAY?
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
