Apostolic Expound

Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ :

"His stripes healed us just as we are." (Isa 53:5, Abi's Translation).

Some times we do think we should do some works like fasting, charity, tithe, church work of some nature in order to please God to make him release the goodness of his healing in our lives. But we do not realize that we just need to come to Him in faith to receive the healing in our body, soul and spirit or in any other areas of our lives. Jesus simply said, "Come unto me" and get yoked with me "I will give you rest," and he added no pre-conditions to fulfill to receive this supernatural rest, except come to him in faith and get attached to what Jesus has already done for each individual.

When Jesus died on the Cross, it was not just to forgive your sins and do nothing more, but rather on the Cross Jesus paid the penalty for all of our sins, so that we as His child can receive the wholeness of God's goodness and the grace of His empowerment to live a victorious life for the Glory of God. In fact, Salvation in OT Hebrew is 'yasa' which means 'to save, help in distress, rescue, deliver, set free' and in the NT Greek is 'soteria' which means 'complete well-being, peace, health, and healing, etc..' which clearly indicates that it is our faith which pleases God to release that wholeness and physical healing in our lives.

In short, God is always willing to give to us all that His only begotten Son Jesus Christ has purchased for us His children through the vicarious death that he died on the Cross for the forgiveness of our sins, which has actually qualified us and has given us the permission to open the heaven's flood gates of blessing in to our lives freely by our faith. We can experience heaven's complete well being in our lives, if we could keep hearing the Word of God and start to expect from God what it says God gives freely to us. May we not try to pay to God something which is freely distributed to his children. Actually, trying to pay to God for the free stuff we deserve through His Son Jesus, actually brings a insult to God's benevolence, in fact, it is like saying to God that He is not what He has promised Himself to be, (i.e.) a good God to His children and the one who takes care of them no matter what. May the Lord open our eyes enough to help us enjoy salvation freely by faith!

Much Blessings.....
