As Jesus Is, So Are We

He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Psalm 107:20

One of my absolute favorite scriptures is 1 John 4:17. “As He is, so are we in this world.” Please read this carefully with your full attention. Our Lord Jesus bore our SINS and DISEASES in His own body on the cross, and He rose from the grave WITHOUT THEM. What does that mean for us. It means that as Jesus is without any diseases, SO ARE WE WITHOUT DISEASES in this world.

In other words, according to 1 John 4:17, if Jesus is free from sickness, disease and pain, then SO ARE WE. This is actually too good to be true news, but it is true because it’s God’s Holy Word. The secret is to read often and meditate on this verse until it gets thoroughly in our heart by revelation and then as often as you can, speak this truth over your body until you see the manifestation of your healing.

There’s a reason why there are so many healing testimonies in the Bible. They’re there for our benefit. Let’s list a few to help build our faith for our own healing.

Matthew 8, Peter’s mother-in-law who was healed of a fever.
Matthew 12, the healing of the man with the withered hand.
Luke 13, the healing of the woman who couldn’t stand up for 18 years.

There are also praise reports of blind eyes being healed. John 9, Mark 8, Luke 18, Matt. 9. Deaf ears being opened, Mark 7. The mute speaking, Matt. 9. There are testimonies of those who had died, being brought back to life. John 11, Mark 5.

There are also accounts of healings in the Old Testament. Naaman was healed of leprosy, 2 Kings 5. Hezekiah was told he would not recover from a terminal illness, but God healed him and extended his life 15 years, 2 Kings 20. And these are just a few of the many testimonies recorded in the Word of God just for OUR benefit.

Friends, these testimonies can and should encourage you that this can be your story and testimony as well. What God did for them, He can and will do for you. Jesus’ healing for you rests on the foundation of His unchanging Word. So today let His healing and wholeness bring about the changes you need in your body. All you need to do is anchor your heart in His promises and His perfect work on your behalf. Hallelujah.

I’m standing in faith with you to receive what God paid the price for you to receive. Remember. AS HE IS (at this very moment), SO ARE YOU IN THIS WORLD.  Glory to God forever more.
