“[Jesus] Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” (Matthew 8:17)
There was a time not so very long ago when it was just as tough to get people born again as it is to get them healed today. Religious tradition had convinced people that salvation just couldn’t be obtained by the average person.
But then, praise God, people like Dwight L. Moody came on the scene and started preaching the new birth. They started telling people that Jesus bore their sins and if they’d receive the gift of salvation in simple faith, they’d be born again! Whole denominations like the Baptists preached that message to everything that stood still. You’d hear it in every church service.
If you walked in the door and admitted you weren’t saved, someone would grab you and say, “Jesus died for your sins, man! Trust Him, receive Him as your Lord and He’ll save you right now.” Now what do you think would happen if everyone picked up on the truth about healing in the same way?
I can tell you what would happen. Healing would become as easily received as the new birth, and we’d wonder why we had so much trouble with it for so long! What’s more, in that environment, if someone prayed for healing and then said, “I don’t think I got anything.
I don’t feel any better,” do you know what they’d be told? The same thing people are told today when they doubt their salvation because they don’t “feel” saved. Some mature believer would pull them aside and say, “Now listen here. You can’t go by feelings. You have to do this by faith. If you wait until you feel something to believe you’re saved (or healed), you’ll never be able to receive!”
If you’re sitting there right now wishing such a healing revival would begin, stop wishing and start your own! Dig into the Word. Study and meditate the truth about healing and redemption. Listen to tapes of men and women of God who have the revelation of it.
Then start preaching. Preach it to yourself. Preach it to your children. Preach it to your dog if he’s the only one who will listen. It probably won’t do much for him, but it will help you-and that’s what matters. If you’ll do that, you’ll eventually get to the point where you’ll fight sickness and disease the same as you do sin. You’ll be just as tough on Satan when it comes to standing for the redemption of your body as you are when it comes to the redemption of your spirit.
I’m not saying all this will be easy. It won’t be. Not in this life. Not in this world. Just as you don’t live in victory over sin without putting forth an effort, you can’t bumble along in life and have God just drop healing in your lap. No, you’ll have to stand for it. You’ll have to fight the good fight of faith. But you will win…and the healing revival will have begun!
