Praise the LORD, my soul, and never forget all the good he has done: He is the one who forgives all your sins, the one who heals all your diseases, (Psalms 103:2-3 GW)
He was wounded for our rebellious acts. He was crushed for our sins. He was punished so that we could have peace, and we received healing from his wounds. (Isaiah 53:5 GW)
Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. (Isaiah 58:8 NIV)

- As long as Jesus is a life your sickness is gone and dead in Jesus name.
- I declare in the name of Jesus Christ that known and un- known sickness or disease will not follow you back home in Jesus name.
Throughout this service just be looking unto Jesus the Healer who is already here because of you.
Our topic says Looking Unto Jesus – your healer. The Author of your faith. LET us read the text together
” looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. “(Hebrews 12:2 NKJV).
Dictionary describe sickness as illness, unwellness or defectiveness of an organism in the body.
When a part or the whole body aches severely or mildly, upon diagnoses by doctor you are told the problem and he prescribes.
CAUSES OF SICKNESSES
Mark 2:5 “And when Jesus saw their faith [their confidence in God through Him], He said to the paralyzed man, Son, your sins are forgiven [you] and put away [that is, the penalty is remitted, the sense of guilt removed, and you are made upright and in right standing with God].”
Sin is the root of all evils. At creation everything God created were good and perfect. Mind you sickness was not part of God creation, but when man sinned; impurity enter into the body and life of man; creating imperfections. Because the body is impure devil is able to attack the divine good health God gave to us as our inheritance. According to our text if we can be healed if we lay aside all weight(sins)
- “…..let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us,…”and make your body
- “ Brothers and sisters,…… I encourage you to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, dedicated to God and pleasing to him.” (Romans 12:1 GW).
When you do this you will reject any kind of sickness. It is not all sicknesses that are caused by sin.
Your life style can make you healthy or unhealthy. How hygienic you are contribute to once healthy living. How you exercise your body everyday is very important. What you eat and drink and the environment where you are. How much sugary, oily and carbohydrates food you put into your body also determine your health situations.
Somebody can be attacked with sickness even from his or her sleep, Bible says
One night, when everyone was asleep, an enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away.”(Matthew 13:25 (GNB)
If you make your body an habitation of Holy Spirit, the Bible says
Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and who was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourselves but to God; he bought you for a price. So use your bodies for God’s glory”. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (GNB)
Do this,and devil will not be able to attack you in the day, when awake or in the night when you sleep and living a healthy lifestyle. I believe you will always enjoy good health.
Therefore, “……. if Christ lives in you, your bodies are dead because of sin, but your spirits are alive because you have God’s approval.” (Romans 8:10 GW).
Your body will actually dead to sickness or any type of diseases.
MEANS OF HEALING
- MEDICALLY – When the sick goes to the hospital to see doctor.
- TRADITIONALLY- When the sick consult traditional medicine practitioner. Where leaves and roots are used to heal.
- DIVINELY – Where the sick goes to Doctor Jesus for Healing without using medicine except through Payers and the Word of God.
The third one, Divine Healing is our focus here this morning.
ON WHAT PLATFORM ARE YOU Divinely HEALED?
On the platform of WHAT Jesus did on the cross at Calvary for our Salvation.
“He was wounded for our rebellious acts. He was crushed for our sins. He was punished so that we could have peace, and we received healing from his wounds”. (Isaiah 53:5 GW)
At this time look Unto Jesus He is moving now locating your areas of pains and extracting every cause of that pains.
The two blind men heard Jesus passing and they shouted on the top of their voices saying Jesus Son of David have mercy on me, Jesus asked them what He should do for them, they answered Him make us to see, Jesus said do you think I can do it, they said yes, there and then their eyes were opened.
Are you also calling on Jesus this morning to intervene in your life situations or your health situation. Do you believe He can heal you?
Brother and Sister put your faith to work
“Jesus said to them, “Have faith in God! I can guarantee this truth: This is what will be done for someone who doesn’t doubt but believes what he says will happen: He can say to this mountain, ‘Be uprooted and thrown into the sea,’ and it will be done for him. That’s why I tell you to have faith that you have already received whatever you pray for, and it will be yours. Whenever you pray, forgive anything you have against anyone. Then your Father in heaven will forgive your failures.” (Mark 11:22-25 GW)
Stand up on your feet and begin to call on Him to heal you now.
Put your faith to work and claim your healing in the name of Jesus Christ
