I'm so excited today! I'm excited because the Lord is real. His promises are real and His love is real. Everything in the bible points to Jesus. Jesus is the ultimate expression of God's love. Halellujah! I'm excited about Jesus today. I'm excited because healing in the name of Jesus is real, peace in the name of Jesus is real, comfort in the name of Jesus is real, success and prospering in the name of Jesus is real. He is real! All His benefits are real. I think today I want to talk about supernatural health and healing. I believe that I walk in supernatural health and I believe my children come under the covering of supernatural health as well. I define supernatural health as relying totally on Jesus Christ for my daily health and the health of my kids. That means that God has given me some revelation on daily things I do and take to stay healthy. That means that when something is wrong with my kids, God gives me answers on what steps to take to get them better. It also means God inspires me on a daily basis on what is necessary to keep them healthy. I believe God is doing this for me everyday, I believe it with all my heart. God gives me wisdom in every area of my life. Now in the area of healing. This is what Isaiah 53 says about Jesus:
Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 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
In strongs concordance the Hebrew word used for stripes in Isaiah 53 is chabbuwrah and it says:
prop. - bound w/stripes
i.e. - (black and blue mark)bruised, hurt, etc
the concordance also says that it comes from Chabor and the concordance says
a pri. to join (lit or fig). It also defines as fellowship with or join self together.
Chabor is a primary root word in Hebrew and I believe stripes as defined in Isaiah 53, in the Hebrew means that Jesus joined himself together with our hurts, bruises, diseases, illnesses, everything that causes harm to us; and took it onto Himself. With that joining together with all of our hurts and pains, diseases and illnesses we are healed.
