INTRODUCTION

Here at HH Scriptures we like to see people get healed. In the following pages you will see the steps you need to take in order to be healed. Today is the day to start.

Welcome. This is a compilation of what the Bible says about health and healing, as well as barriers to health and healing. Please read all the pages and take them very, very seriously. This has been compiled over many years with much research in the Bible, through hundreds of sermons on the subject and with life application as well. As an introduction here are some basic concepts presented in this booklet when it comes to health and healing under God. Whatever your problem,  physical or mental, it’s all covered by the God of Creation.

 

The first step talks about Spiritual Warfare, very important to understand this to overcome. Then step two, learning about what Jesus has done for us, scripture after scripture. Following that, there are several steps on Barriers to Healing, like pride getting in the way, lack of hope, sin and most importantly “Ye of little faith” and more. Then we learn about the power, authority and victory that Jesus has given us! We end with some practical life applications and the Power of Prayer! 

 

Ultimately, it’s a journey. A journey out of the ways of the world and into the kingdom of God. Take the journey, start here, and never give up. It will be worth it. Keep this book, use it as a constant reference and compare everything in it to the Bible to be sure.

 

Freed from Sin and Sickness by Jesus!

 

In Matthew 8:17 God says “… (Jesus) Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” This was to fulfill a prophecy made by Isaiah the prophet in the Old Testament about Jesus coming to not only save us from our sin but to heal us. Sure, He came to “take away the sins of the world” (1 John 2:2), but He also came to make us whole. You’ll see that when God said “healed” He used the word raphe which means: to mend (by stitching), i.e. (figuratively) to cure:—cure, (cause to) heal, physician, repair, thoroughly, make whole (Strong’s definition). God also used this same word when He told “the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer.” (Exodus 15:26)

 

We may continue to struggle with sickness even after following God and reading the Bible, but that’s because there are barriers to healing. Remember, Satan came to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10) so he has worked hard at putting up many barriers over the many years. We need the Word of God to defeat him and our sickness. You will receive help in this book. But pursue every source you feel led to in order to overcome.

 

As we develop faith that Jesus bore our sins, sickness, and disease by virtue of His sacrifice on the cross and the power of His resurrection, then we can be healed. According the Word we have been given by God "a measure of faith". It also teaches that we must grow our faith "as the mustard seed". Our healing(s) can come instantly, over a short period of time, or even over many years, all depending how God is working in your life as you give our very life to Him. And the great thing is that it applies to any area of physical, mental or spiritual suffering. This is the truth of the Bible and "The truth will make you free (John 8:32)".

And here’s the truth as told in Isaiah 53:4-5 and then confirmed in Matthew 18:17:

 

Isaiah:4-5:

Surely (truly, indeed, strong assertive force) our griefs (our sickness, anxiety, disease) He Himself bore, and our sorrows (our physical and mental pain) He carried; yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions (our rebellion and sin), He was crushed for our iniquities (our immorality, evilness); the chastening for our well-being (health, prosperity, peace) fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed (cured, caused to heal, repair, made whole).

Matthew 8:14-17

When Jesus came into Peter’s home, He saw his mother-in-law lying sick in bed with a fever. He touched her hand, and the fever left her; and she got up and waited on Him. When evening came, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed; and He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were ill. This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: “HE HIMSELF TOOK OUR INFIRMITIES AND CARRIED AWAY OUR DISEASES.”

 

All of chapter 53 of Isaiah is about Jesus suffering for the sins of all people, yes, all people and that includes you, the reader!!!. It says, “Surely he hath borne our griefs.” The word “griefs” actually means “sickness, weakness and pain.” So, why didn't they translate it that way? I don't know, but I do know it would have been a lot more helpful if they did.

 

Why did He (Jesus) need to be a sacrifice? Because it is told to us in the Old Testament that God required sacrifices of the blood of animals for their sins including lambs. Jesus, who is called the Lamb of God, is the last sacrifice, the shedding of blood as in the Old Testament, for our sins and sickness, to undo what Satan has done. Therefore, Jesus came to take away our sins and to heal us. 

Here's what occurred at the cross. At the cross, 1) Jesus "shed His blood for the remission, or forgiveness, of our sins" and 2) gave His body up for our healing or in other words, "by His stripes, or scourging, we are healed". Most churches teach the first part but not the second part.

 

In the Bible the communion service, or Lord's supper, witnessed to this fact. The wine represents the blood of Jesus and the remission of sin and the bread represents His body which was given up for our healing as Isaiah 53: 4-5 and Matthew 8:14-17 above clearly states.

Now, continue on in this book for the steps to healing.

One other thing. In order to get more clarification on the above Biblical principles, we highly recommend reading the book "Healing the Sick" by T.L. Osborn.
