Isa 53:5But he was
wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the
chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Is it true that because Jesus was whipped we are healed?
Yes, it is true. Not in the Physical sense as many say this
passage means but in the spiritual sense.
The verse says that Jesus was "wounded for our
The Hebrew words being used:
Min-nay and peh'-shah
meaning He was wounded because of our---rebellion or sin
"It then says He was bruised for our iniquities"
Heb: Avon means fault,
In other words Jesus went through the pains of the cross
because we were sinners and required a Saviour. He was beaten in place of the
punishment we were destined to receive but He did it for us.
Finally, "And with His stripes we are healed"
Heb. Rapha meaning cured or made whole.
There is no mention of any physical sickness nor is there an
implication of such. What is obvious is we were sinners and needed the cure.
Jesus took our punishment upon His body to pay that debt for us and so, by His
stripes we are made whole.
It is not by His stripes we are physically healed, our
marriages restored, our finances established, none of it.
Yet something much more important is established here. It is
our eternal salvation.
In a broken world, we are made whole.
Recently I was reproved because of one of my monthly updates
I asked for prayer for a member who had cancer. I was told if I had faith she
would be healed.
I refuted that argument by scripture but the hurt still
remains. One of the worst things someone could say to someone (I believe) is
that a loved one would not die if someone else had faith. What a burden to put
on someones shoulders!
The Bible says: 2Ti 4:20Erastus abode at Corinth:
but Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick. Wow, was that Paul who left someone
sick? Didn't Paul have faith?
Again the Bible says: 2Co 12:7And lest I should be exalted above measure
through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the
flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above
2Co 12:8For this
thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
2Co 12:9And he said
unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in
weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the
power of Christ may rest upon me.
Paul was one of the top Apostles yet he could not have this
"infirmity" removed from him but rather said he would
"glory" in his infirmities
So infirmities other wise known as, "disease, sickness,
weakness" are sometimes used to give glory to God.
What if the blind man was told he was blind because he had
no faith? Joh 9:1And as Jesus passed
by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
Joh 9:2And his
disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents,
that he was born blind?
answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of
God should be made manifest in him.
Did the blind man have faith? Of course he did and Jesus
We do not pray to trees. Why, because they can not hear or
respond to us. We pray to God. What does that tell you? We are able to realize
that God can hear us and respond to us. So, when we pray to God, it shows that
we have faith in God or else, why would we pray to Him?
There are some that think Faith is our ability to cause
things to happen such as healing, miracles... It's not. Faith is our ability to
believe God in any situation knowing whatever He answers is the absolute best
for all involved.
