Can Everyone Be Healed?

Before we answer this question, I have a question for you. Do you believe the Bible is the Truth and the infallible Word of God? I mean, do you really believe it? If the answer to that question is no, then nothing in this article or any sermon concerning healing or miracles will make any sense to you and you will probably be mad by the time you finish reading. If you answer yes to that question then I have some exciting news for you.

Because of our sins we have been made susceptible to the curse on the earth. The results of this curse are death, sickness, poverty, demonic oppression, depression, etc. Not only that, we were separated from God, and condemned to an eternal existence apart from Him in heaven. Just when everything looked hopeless, around 2000 years ago, Jesus, the Son of God, came down to the earth, and paid the price for our sins (by being crucified on the cross and  raising from the dead), so now we can be made right with God. So what does this exactly mean? According to John 3:16, God so loved the world, that He sent his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him, will not perish, but have everlasting life. In another scripture it says, If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved (Romans 10:9)

So if I believe in my heart that Jesus is Lord, and confess it with my mouth, then I am saved, or born again. I believe this because the Bible says that is the way it is. Are there situations in which if someone believes in their heart and confess  this with their mouth that they will not be saved? Not according to scripture. It does not matter how evil the person is, or what bad thing they have done, Jesus will save all that come to him in this way. Keep in mind that the scripture gives a blueprint in Romans 10:9 how to be saved: Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth. If you really believe in your heart, but never say anything, according to this scripture, you are not saved. Also, if you confessed out of your mouth, but never really believed it in your heart, you are not saved.

The same blueprint in Romans 10:9 on how to become born again, is the same blueprint to receive all the promises of God. They are all given by grace freely, but we access them by faith. One of these promises, healing, is a right to every believer in Jesus.  So lets put it simply, how do you use your faith to receive your healing? According to Romans 10:9, the first step is to believe it in your heart. But what are you believing? Just because you know you have a divine right to healing will not get you healed. And just because your Pastor just prayed for the lady standing next to you and she got healed, will not necessarily get you healed. Even if you really really really want God to heal you, that will not get you healed. What is going to get you healed is you releasing your faith, which is based solely on the Word of God concerning healing.  So first you must believe in your heart what God said concerning healing. He said:

Who his self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes you were healed – (1 Peter 2:24)

And said, If thou wilt hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statues, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians, for I am the Lord that healeth thee. (Exodus 15:26)

And these signs shall follow them that believe.. the shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover (Mark 16:17-18)

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 (Isa 53:5)

These are just a few of the scriptures in the Bible concerning healing, there are many more. You do not need to know 10 scriptures concerning healing, attend healing conferences all around the world, and take a theology class on divine healing for the healing power of God to work in your life. You just have to understand that it is in fact God’s will to heal, just as it is God’s will to save souls. There is not one instance in the New Testament where someone came to Jesus for healing and he turned them down.  So take time to become familiar with these healing scriptures, meditate on them until you believe them with all your heart.  Do you believe them? Do you take God at His Word when he said by his stripes you were healed? If you cannot believe his stripes have paid the price for your healing in 1 Peter 2:24 and Isa 53:5, can you truly believe Jesus paid the price for your sins in John 3:16 and Romans 10:9? This is a serious point of reflection as you ask yourself, can God’s Word be trusted? (Thats why I asked that in the beginning of the article.)

So now lets say you believe it with all your heart.  You really really really believe it. That still will not get you healed. Believing God is a good thing, but only faith is what releases the miracle. Faith is acting upon that which you believe (the Word), and fully expecting the desired result (of the Word). Faith is an action word, your faith can be seen in you doing something (based upon the Word).  We believe therefore we speak (2 Cor 4:13) For an example of faith, because I believe that Jesus was beaten so that my body could be healed, I speak directly to whatever is not acting right, and command it to be healed in Jesus name. Be agressive with it, you have a divine right to healing, in Mark 11, Jesus spoke directly to a fig tree.

By implementing the principles of faith, based upon the Word of God, you can be healed, no matter the circumstance. Healing always comes. It might not always come instantly, but you have to stand for what you say you believe. Be open to hear specific words from God such as ‘raise your right hand twice’ or ‘call Jennifer and forgive her’. Obeying his specific instructions are a part of you releasing your faith. Just like Jesus desires all to be saved, he desires all to be healed. Release your faith and watch the healing power of God flow through you today!
