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

Welcome to the latest edition of the Ruminator Ramblings....


We are in the third of the series HEALING...GOD'S WILL OR A ROLE OF THE KARMA DICE.


What prompted this series was a post by a good brother in the Lord...feeling slightly guilty for utilizing Isaiah 53:5 as a basis for praying for healing.  His question was this verse only for in essences "spiritual sickness" aka SIN. 


We have seen that the PROBLEM is DEATH BY SIN.  We have also seen that the need is SALVATION...and the means of SALVATION is the D.B.R. and the INSTRUMENT of the PROPITIATION (satisfactory substitute) is THE CROSS.  The RESURRECTION sealed the deal...as He was RAISED in a act of CORONATION OF THE KING to be OBEYED.


As ruminate about this thing called GOD'S WILL...let us look at the PURPOSE of the coming of Jesus...in the flesh.


"And you know of Jesus of Nazareth (Jesus in the flesh)...how God ANOINTED Him with the Holy Spirit and with power and how He went about doing good and HEALING all who were OPPRESSED BY THE d-evil...for GOD WAS WITH HIM." (Acts 10:38).


"...The Son  of God appeared for THIS PURPOSE...that He might DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE d-evil." (I John 3:8)


"And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him.  And He opened the book/scroll, and found the place where it was written...The SPIRIT OF THE LORD is upon Me...because He ANOINTED ME to preach the Gospel to the poor, He sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are downtrodden, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord, and He closed the book/scroll and gave it back to the attendant; and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed upon Him.  And He began to say to them...Today this Scripture was fulfilled  in your hearing." (Luke 4:17-21; Isaiah 61:1)


"And Jesus was GOING ABOUT in all Galilee, TEACHING in their synagogues, and PROCLAIMING the Gospel of the Kingdom and  HEALING EVERY KIND OF DISEASE and EVERY KIND OF SICKNESS among the people.  And the news about Him went out into all Syria, and they brought to Him ALL WHO WERE ILL...taken with VARIOUS DISEASES and PAINS, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics, and HE HEALED THEM." (Matthew 4: 23-24)


Jesus...walked for thirty three years on planet Earth...and the last three years were under the ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT...under the OLD COVENANT.  Jesus manifested what He told His disciples to pray..."Thy KINGDOM (rule of righteousness, peace and joy) come...Thy WILL BE DONE...on EARTH (where He was walking) as it is in HEAVEN (where the will of God is). (Matthew 6:10)


During that time...in the Gospel's of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John...Jesus manifested the WILL OF GOD on earth as it is in heaven.


NEXT TIME
We will look closer at ISAIAH 53 and the SIN/SICKNESS CONNECTION
