“Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” I Peter 2:24
I’m sure we’ve all seen The Passion of the Christ, when Jesus was brutally whipped before He was crucified. The stripes that He took from those whips had a purpose. They were to establish our Covenant of Healing! If all God wanted to do was provide the forgiveness of our transgressions and iniquities, then Jesus would have gone directly to the Cross. But God wanted to provide a complete redemption that would include physical, mental and emotional healing too! There was a deliberate reason for Jesus going to that whipping post.
Isaiah 53:5 says, “But He was wounded for our transgressions,He was bruised for our iniquities;The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,And by His stripes we are healed.”
The word ‘peace” in this scripture, is the Hebrew word shalom. It has a much deeper meaning than our English word, peace. Shalom means completeness, wholeness and health, where nothing is missing and nothing is broken. The chastisement Jesus took on the whipping post would dissolve the very root causes of sickness and disease and bring healing under the provisions of the New Covenant, which makes it available to all who are born again! Jesus paid for our healing, which means healing belongs to us.
Acts 10:38 says, “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” God calls healing GOOD! He calls sickness the OPPRESSION OF THE DEVIL! We were redeemed from the devil and his oppression when we were born again. I want you to know that no matter how badly you have failed, how deeply you have sinned, or how alienated you feel from God! Your healing was paid for with Jesus’ stripes. It belongs to you! And God wants you Whole, Well, Strong and Complete in every way!
