Our aim as a Christian fellowship is to share with all people the truths of the blessings of our new covenant relationship with God, which was wrought for us by Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross, and manifested through Him in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our endeavour is to create a resource of spiritual truth in the hope that it might bless and minister to those who share a love of the truth, to those who might have needs, or to those who are seeking.
This week in Scriptural Topics we are looking at: 'Sickness and Spiritual Healing'
…who Himself bore [the punishment for] 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."
When Jesus bore the punishment for our sins in His body on the cross, He delivered our bodies from the curse of the law of sin and death. This was prophesied by the prophet Isaiah centuries before Jesus was born. "Surely He has borne our griefs [literally - sicknesses] and carried our sorrows [literally - pains]….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." Isa 53:4-5
Satan now has no legal right to inflict our bodies with sickness, but we have every right to claim what Jesus acquired for us on the cross, and ask God to heal us.
1 Peter 2:24-25
