Looking at this title “You don’t need faith for Healing” You maybe wondering what is Oluwatobi saying of course you need faith, well i will say this again you don’t need faith for Healing,yes, lets see why.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 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.
Isaiah 53:4-5 (ASV)
The above scripture was spoken before Jesus came, by the Prophet Isaiah, here he states by the inspiration of God that Jesus will carry all our griefs and sorrows, and He will be wounded for our Iniquities He also ties our Healing to an event ‘ the Beating of Jesus’(By His stripes we were healed).
This means that all the healing that ever took place before Jesus came and before he was beaten was based on Faith on this event that they believe dwill happen!!!! i.e Jesus beating.
Even when Jesus walked in the flesh on earth all the people He healed needed to have Faith before they could get healed since the event had not yet taken place.
This is because faith is assurance of things hoped for, a conviction of things not seen
Heb 11:1 (ASV)
They needed to hope for the beating of Jesus to produce the stripes for their healing and the assurance of this hope was Jesus himself. That’s why to all the people He healed He mostly said ‘your Faith has made you whole’
Interestingly if you notice the Apostle never used faith to heal Anyone, only Paul at a certain time, recognized the faith in a certain man. Now you are saying hmm, well lets look at this event of the lame man at the beautiful Gate.
But Peter said, I have no silver or gold, but what I have, that I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up on your feet. 7 And he took him by his right hand, lifting him up; and straight away his feet and the bones of his legs became strong, 8 And, jumping up, he got on to his feet and went into the Temple with them, walking and jumping and giving praise to God.
Acts 3:6-8 (BBE)
This took place without the demand for faith from the Lame man because Jesus beating has already happened and as such Peter was just enforcing the right to be healed for him because Jesus Had already paid for it in full!!!
That’s why this same peter when Quoting the first scripture above said:
who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed.
1 Peter 2:24 (ASV)
Notice that ‘the with his stripes we are healed’ has been changed to past tense of by whose stripes ye were healed!!!
Remember also that Faith is the assurance of what is still been hoped, and is this case what is hope for (His Stripes) has been done, and it is also the evidence of things not seen, but in this case we already have proof of this event in the bible and in Historical writings.
Beloved ! Your healing and that of Others has been fully paid for never cheat your self. Fight against sickness and illness steadfastly in You and in others and ENFORCE your Healing.
if a demon is responsible for it (which in most cases it is) cast it out because they are usurpers and do not have any more right to inflict sickness but they play on people ignorance of this fact!!!
Let this word make you heal others and leave a healthy life,
You were Healed!
