7 Revelations That Can Heal You
by Barry Bennett
1 God is light and life. There is no darkness in Him. Sickness is darkness and cannot prevail against the life and the light of God. A revelation of the Greater One’s life in you will heal you. (Jn. 1:4-5, Jn. 10:10)
2. The Word of God is Spirit, Life and medicine to our flesh. He sent His Word and healed us. An intimate communion with the Word will heal you. (Jn. 6:63, Prov. 4:20-22, Ps. 107:20)
3. The power of sin was destroyed on the cross. A conscience free of the guilt of sin will heal you. (Col. 2:13-15, 2 Cor. 5:19-21, Mk. 2:5-11)
4. Jesus bore our sickness and took our infirmities on the cross. A revelation of Jesus the Healer will heal you. (Isa. 53:4, Mat. 8:16-17, Gal. 3:13)
5. Sickness is a work of the enemy. A revelation of the enemy defeated will heal you. (1 Jn. 3:8, Acts 10:38, James 4:7)
6. God is love, and the love of God will cast out the fear that comes from sickness. A revelation of God’s love will heal you. (1 Jn. 4:8, 18)
7. God’s will is healing. He healed us on the cross and healing exists for all. A revelation of His will, will heal you. Healing and salvation are available to all. He has done it for you. (Matt. 8:1-3, 7).
Meditate on these verses and open your heart to each revelation. Your life will follow your focus.
Quote from Barry Bennett
Just a thought
The traditional church and almost any other religious organization take a lot of criticism from those in the ‘grace movement.’ Cries of legalism are often heard and fingers are pointed at religious structures that haven’t captured the full revelation of God’s love and grace.
But ask yourself, what would society be like if there had never been a ‘traditional’ church? If there had never been a standard for right and wrong and good and evil to act as a barrier against cultural darkness and societal immorality, what kind of world would we be living in? Would a vacuum of religious constraint lead men to the knowledge of God? Wouldn’t it have been like the days of Noah?
Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (Gen. 6:5) Wouldn’t we have been like Sodom?
While it is popular to criticize the sometimes lifeless dogma of some denominations and cry out against the legalism they produce, haven’t we needed those barriers within the context of government and society to keep us from total anarchy? Isn’t the rapid disappearance of ‘religion’ producing an accepted and legalized immorality in our society?
If the Law of Moses was a tutor to bring men to Christ (Gal. 3:24), can’t we say the same of modern religious organizations that stand for right and wrong? I am not suggesting a return to law keeping or lifeless religion. But I do think we may be throwing out the baby with the bathwater when we attack the institutions that have served to impede the spread of total corruption and anarchy in our midst.
