Jesus’ Unquestionable Desire to Heal You

by | Apr 6, 2018 | Woman

Often God’s people believe that He is able to heal, but struggle to believe that He wills to heal them. Let’s take a look at this today and unmask this lie of the enemy in this area of our faith for healing.

We read about a man who was leprous in Luke 5:12-16:

When He was in a certain city, a man full of leprosy, upon seeing Jesus, fell on his face and begged Him, “Lord, if You will, You can make me clean.”

He reached out His hand and touched him, saying, “I will. Be clean.” And immediately the leprosy left him.

Then He commanded him to tell no one, “But go and show yourself to the priest and make an offering for your cleansing, as Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

Yet even more so His fame went everywhere. And great crowds came together to hear and to be healed by Him of their infirmities. But He withdrew to the wilderness and prayed (Luke 5:12-16).

Even though this man’s request is written as a statement, I believe in his heart it was a question. He was not sure if Jesus was willing to heal him of this wretched disease. And if we understand the times of his day and the disease itself, we might have a better understanding of where this man was coming from in his uncertainty.

Back then, leprosy was an incurable disease, and it was extremely contagious. A person with this disease was labeled as “unclean” and was doomed to die in caves with other lepers. And they would have to shout aloud about themselves to warn a passerby that they were unclean. How humiliating and hopeless this must have been for them.

So you see, he really didn’t know if it was Yeshua’s will to heal him, but if He was willing, this man had heard that He was able to make him clean. This leads into controversial issues today as well. And again, there are important truths here that we have been missing for years.

Have I not told you over and over again, that according to Isaiah 53:4-5 “by His stripes” we are already healed? Yes, I have and it is solid foundational truth that we have already been healed by the redemptive blood of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten of God, and afflicted.
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.

But the time this leper met the Messiah, Jesus had not yet shed His blood for us at Calvary. And during this time Jesus walked the earth in the form of a human being, just like us, except that He operated completely by faith. To show us by His example how we are to walk by faith—like Him. So in the faith realm, was Jesus willing to heal this man of leprosy? Yes, He was.

After this miracle and many other miraculous events Jesus shed His blood at the whipping post to purchase our healing in spirit, soul and in physical body for us; and He was crowned with the crown of thorns to become King of the curse and to overcome the curse for us, and He also transformed into the curse when He hung upon the cross. And when He cried out, “It is finished,” we were totally and completely delivered from Satan and all of his wicked works, including sickness and disease. Therefore, we no longer need to ask Jesus if He is willing to heal us, but are to thank Him and rejoice that “by His stripes” we are already healed today.

And if there is to be any request today concerning healing it should be, “Help my unbelief. Teach me how to trust completely in Your healing power, Lord.” And He wills that you believe and receive His miracle-working power within your being to activate your healing today. {eoa}
