DIG for Tuesday the 18th of July…..we are talking about physical healing and not spiritual…..Matthew 8 v 16 and 17

As I said yesterday healing is provided through the finished work of Jesus..

Sometimes I hear this, “But the healing spoken about in the Word is spiritual healing”, about making the person ‘whole’ in that sense and not in the physical.

Well, what about Isaiah 53 v 4 and 5 and Matthew 8 v 16 and 17, would be my reply!

Isaiah 53 v 4 and 5, if you look at the Hebrew, is prophesying that Jesus would take our sickness and disease (griefs) and pain (sorrows) on His body, and that He would heal people physically.

Matthew 8 v 16 and 17 shows Jesus healing people of their sickness, with the Greek word clearly talking about physical illness and disease.

It then says that He did this to fulfil what was said by the prophet Isaiah (Matthew 8 v 17).

How clear do you want or need Scripture to be?

These two passages are obviously (if you look at the Hebrew and Greek) talking about physical healing and not spiritual.

Salvation makes our spirit perfect anyway, so a believer does not need their spirit healed, but a lot of us do require physical healing, and Jesus provided this through His finished work.

Do not let anyone tell you that the healing spoken about in Isaiah is spiritual, it is physical, and Scripture is very clear about this.

Physical healing has been provided for you to believe and receive, so take it!

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you provided physical healing for us all through the finished work of Jesus”.

Matthew 8 v 16 and 17…..When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses
