HEALING...GOD'S WILL OR A ROLE OF THE KARMA DICE. PART TWO

Greetings Saints...yes you.




We continue Rambling on about this thing called HEALING.  For me...it is easier to go into default mode when I don't get healed...or someone you pray for dies.  DEFAULT MODE: (1) It must not be God's will (2) They must have not had enough faith (3)  I guess I/they have not learned their lesson yet. (4) Not my will but Thine...and Thine is sickness and disease.


In our last Rambling we talked about the ROOTS of DIS-ease, DIS-order and DYS-function caused by DIS-obedience at the temptation by the d-EVIL.  The only thing that will bring back ease, order, and function was OBEDIENCE.


ENTER SALVATION
We needed to be SAVED.  Of course, the old joke was "Jesus SAVES...Moses INVESTS."  If you go up to someone on the street...and ask them...Are you SAVED...the response may be..."Saved from what?" or Saved???? I 'm not lost."

SALVATION:  sōtēria (so-tay-ree'-ah)=Feminine of a derivative of G4990 as (properly abstract) noun; rescue or safety (physically or morally): - deliver, health, salvation, save, saving.
  • rescue
  • safety
  • deliverance
  • health
  • salvation
  • save
  • saving
"He SAVED us...not on the BASIS OF DEEDS which we have done in righteousness...but according to His MERCY...by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit." (Titus 3:5)

"For Christ also DIED FOR SINS once for ALL, the just (Jesus) for the unjust (us)...having been PUT TO DEATH IN THE FLESH...but MADE ALIVE IN THE SPIRIT." (I Peter 3:18)

"But what does it say?  The WORD (of faith) is near you, in your MOUTH and in your HEART--that is, the word of faith which we are preaching...that if you CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH...JESUS AS/IS LORD...and BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART man BELIEVES resulting in righteousness, and with the MOUTH HE CONFESSES...resulting in SALVATION." (Roman 10:8-10)



"Whoever will CALL upon the NAME OF THE LORD...will be SAVED." (Romans 10:13)


ENTER THE CROSS
The problem...that caused the need for salvation...was rooted in a TREE.  The solution for salvation was found in another tree...called THE CROSS.


"Christ REDEEMED us from the CURSE of the Law, having become a CURSE for us--for it is written, CURSED is EVERY ONE who hangs on a TREE..in order that IN CHRIST JESUS the blessings of Abraham (the blessings not the curses), might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." (Galatians 3:13-14)


I tend to find it easier to believe that the CROSS dealt only with SIN because sin is more internal in my mind...but when you talk about SICKNESS and DIS-EASE it is more visual in the sense of seeing the effect. 


The CROSS has always been a STUMBLING BLOCK to people...because it seems such a simplistic way to deal with such a massive problem...which is SIN.  Because it is a matter of FAITH


"Now FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title-deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality--faith perceiving as real fact what is NOT REVEALED to the senses." (Hebrews 11:1 The Amplified Bible)


The CROSS confuses the intellectual...and baffles the sign seekers.  It also discourages those who love the freedom of walking in the flesh...fulfilling the desires of the flesh... because when face with the CROSS...they realized that they have to DIE to SELF DAILY and live unto Him...not them.


"For Christ did not send me (Paul) to baptize, but to PREACH THE GOSPEL...not in cleverness of speech, that the CROSS OF CHRIST should not be made void.  For the WORD OF THE CROSS is to those who are perishing, foolishness...but to us who are being SAVED (our salvation)...it is the POWER OF GOD.


Remember Paul's view of this thing called the GOSPEL (the Death on the cross, Burial in a borrowed tomb...and the Resurrection from the dead of Jesus).
"For I am not ashamed of the GOSPEL (good news) of CHRIST; for it is God's power working unto salvation (for deliverance from eternal death) to every one who BELIEVES with a personal trust and a confident surrender and firm reliance to the Jew first and also to the Greek." (Romans 1:16 The Amplified Bible)


So...thus far we see that there is a NEED for this thing called SALVATION...and there is  MEANS for this SALVATION to be accomplished.  Now the ball is in mankind's court...to BELIEVE IT, RECEIVE IT, AND CONFESS IT.


Next time...in HEALING...GOD'S WILL OR A ROLE OF THE KARMA DICE. PART THREE, we will delve into this thing called SALVATION and see if it is ONLY for dealing with SIN or does it also deal with SICKNESS?
