Can you understand the emotions involved when someone says, "I just wish I could bear this sickness for my loved one. I would rather be sick myself than watch him suffer?"

It is impossible in the natural realm for a doctor or anyone else to reverse the curse, because they cannot take the sickness on themselves to set you free. But in Jesus Christ it was possible. He bore it so you don't have to!

I don't understand all of it, either. I can understand what the Bible teaches, but I can't understand how our sicknesses and diseases could be placed upon His Body by the stripes He suffered.

However, the important part is not that we understand the workings of every bit of it, but that we believe it. If God's Word says it, we must believe it. I do not completely understand salvation, either, but I believed it, and I received it!

Do you believe if you confess Jesus as the Lord of your life, believing His blood was shed for you, that you will be saved? Are you totally convinced of it?

Suppose someone came to Jesus and said, "I am a sinner. I need Jesus. Lord, forgive me. I receive your blood to cleanse me from all unrighteousness."

Would you doubt that that person could be saved? If you are born again, I know your reply would be, "Of course not! I know they would receive salvation!"

What if a Christian came before the throne of grace and said, "I am sick, and I need to accept Jesus as my Great Physician." Do you believe he would be healed? Do you have any doubts?

Your answer is probably a less emphatic "yes" than with salvation. We have been well programmed with the Word of God about salvation, but not about healing.

We have also been programmed to believe that doctors will help us. If they give us instructions, we follow them, because we have faith in doctors. If we had as much faith in God that we have in doctors, we would see many more healings.

We do have faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, because it has been emphasized and taught in most churches for years. If you were raised in a church, you heard it taught in Sunday School. If anyone witnessed to you, they told you that you could by saved and become a new creature in Christ Jesus.

Because we heard it so often, the repetition caused us to have faith and confidence in the ability of the Lord Jesus Christ's shed blood to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. We have no problem in our mind with His willingness to save anyone who comes to Him.

As we hear more teaching on healing through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, our faith and confidence will grow in this area also. We will answer emphatically, "Yes. All who come to Jesus for healing will be healed!"
