Grace Notes - Luke 22 v 51


Luke 22:51 "And Jesus answered and said, don’t resist anymore. And he touched his ear, and healed him."

Calvary was God’s ultimate and final word to a fallen world.

At the cross Christ paid the price for reconciliation, that act of atonement included forgiveness of sins and healing of all our sicknesses.

Every person Jesus prayed with and for was delivered and healed of all sickness and diseases.

The New Covenant is a new creation and if anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation.

We are In Christ, the fullness of Christ lives in us and healing is an expression of Christ living in us.

Andrew Wommack explains that healing has been purchased for us and is given free by his mercy.

“Jesus often healed people by touching them, and others received their healing as they touched Jesus. You can transmit the power or the anointing of God through the laying on of hands (Mk. 16:18; Heb. 6:2). The virtue of God can even be transmitted to objects and then brought to the person who needs healing or deliverance.

Jesus provided physical healing as well as forgiveness of sins. Many scriptures mention the healing of our bodies in conjunction with the forgiveness of our sins. Healing is an expression of God's love and compassion for our physical man. Healing miracles also draw men to God to get their spiritual needs met. Physical healing acts like a bell to get man's attention so that the Lord can minister to the inner man as well.

Healing has been purchased for us as part of the atonement of Christ. The Lord would no more refuse to heal us than He would refuse to forgive us. That does not mean that we deserve healing - we don't. It is a gift from God, just as salvation is a gift from God (Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8). We don't deserve to have our sins forgiven. We cannot demand salvation from the Lord, but we can expect it. Likewise, healing has been purchased for us through the atonement of Christ. Healing belongs to us, but it is still the mercy of God that provides healing. Every act of healing is an act of mercy.”
