Why Jesus Must Heal Every Christian
and The Eight Healing Delivery Vehicles He Uses To Do It

 

The death of Christ relates back in time to two great covenants in the Old Testament, the Abrahamic covenant and the Mosaic Law covenant. Many view Moses' Law as distinct and separate from the Abrahamic covenant, but it is not. According to the New Testament, Moses' Law was added to the Abrahamic covenant until the death of Christ. That being the case, we must ask two questions; namely, what is the relationship between the Law and the Abrahamic covenant, and what does this have to do with our subject, "Why Jesus Must Heal Every Christian." Here are the answers.

Why Jesus Must Heal Every Christian

In the Abrahamic covenant, God promised the human race some staggering things. Beginning with Abraham, God promised him, his physical descendants, and ultimately the whole human race, salvation for their soul, healing for their body, prosperity for their pocketbook, and well being for their families. In the New Testament era, we Christians are grafted into that same, identical Abrahamic system, so that what God promised Abraham belongs to every Christian reading these words.

 

Every Christian, therefore, is entitled (right now) to healing for his body, prosperity for his pocketbook, and well being for his families in addition to salvation for his soul. These are the promises God made to Abraham, his physical seed, and prophetically, the Gentiles. See my book, What Are Abraham's Blessings, Anyway?

 

About four hundred thirty years later, God added the Law to that Abrahamic covenant to deal with the sins of Abraham's physical descendants. In addition, He dealt with their sins in such a way that Abraham's seed did not lose their blessings of salvation for their soul, healing for their body, prosperity for their pocketbook, and well being for their family. In other words, God added the Law to deal with their sin problem in a way that enabled them to maintain their Abrahamic Blessings of healing, prosperity and family well being, in addition to the salvation of their soul.

 

Many view Moses' Law as a vehicle designed purely to make somebody guilty. For them, God designed it to bring guilt and damnation upon everybody by dreaming up a bunch of "thou shalt nots" that nobody can perform, making it a "ministration of death" and an "instrument of damnation." It would have been, had God not placed a sacrificial system with it. Built into the Law, however, God included a sacrificial system; consequently, when a Jew sinned in the Old Testament, he simply made the right sacrifice in the right spirit and the Abrahamic blessings of healing, prosperity, family well being and salvation continued in full force for him with no interruption.

 

To put it differently, God added the Law to Abraham's covenant so that He could deal with the sin problem and at the same time maintain the blessings in that covenant for the seed of Abraham. To put it another way, He said that thou shalt not do such and such and that thou shalt do such and such. If someone broke a particular Law and made the proper sacrifice, the four Abrahamic blessings cited above, continued without interruption for that person. 

 

However, if a Jew committed a sin and did not perform the proper sacrifice in the right spirit, the blessings of Abraham shut down (immediately ceased) for him, then and there. He lost his healing, prosperity, the well being for his family and his salvation until he made the proper sacrifice. When he repented of his sin and demonstrated his repentance by sacrificing properly, the blessings of Abraham started over for him, beginning with the very moment of his sacrifice.

 

When Jesus came, He became the final sacrifice for sin under Moses' Law. Therefore when a Jew receives Christ as his final sacrifice for sin under Moses' Law, the blessings in the Abrahamic covenant continue for him without interruption. He keeps what he had from birth in the Abrahamic covenant; namely, healing for his body, prosperity for his pocketbook, well being for his family and the salvation of his soul.

 

However, the Jew who does not accept Jesus as God's final sacrifice for sin under Moses' Law, but chooses rather to stay with the sacrifice of the blood of bulls and goats, loses all the blessings he was born with in the Abrahamic covenant because God no longer accepts the blood of bulls and goats. That Jew is as lost and on the road to hell as any Gentile heathen who ever lived. See this author's book, What've They Done With Abraham's Blessings?

 

When a Gentile accepts Christ as his personal savior, he is grafted into the same Abrahamic covenant. He has, by grafting, the same salvation, healing, prosperity and well being for his family that the Jew has had since the book of Genesis. By grafting, we Gentile Christians become Abraham's seed. (I call them The Abrahamic Seed Group.) In addition, Gentiles are grafted into the Abrahamic blessing system on an equal footing with the Jews. Now, we are all, both Jew and Gentile, living and operating in the Abrahamic blessings. For a complete explanation of Gentile grafting, see my book, The Unbroken Force of Abraham's Blessings.

Jesus Did Six Things To Moses' Law Which Abolished It

The death of Christ was God's final sacrificial death for sin. His death ratified the Abrahamic covenant, on the one hand, and abolished the Mosaic Law covenant on the other hand. Actually, Jesus did six things to Moses' Law which abolished it. See the two passages below.

Eph 2:14-16

14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: (KJV)

Col 2:14

14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; (KJV)

From the above Scriptures, we can see the six things Jesus did to the Law in his death.

(1) He broke it down.

(2) He abolished it.

(3) He slew it.

(4) He blotted it out.

(5) He took it out of the way.

(6) He nailed it to his cross.

So the death of Jesus related to these two great institutional covenants of the Old Testament, the Abrahamic covenant and the Mosaic Law covenant. In his death, Jesus ratified one and abolished the other. In my book, How To Obtain Healing and Prosperity When You Don't Feel Worthy Enough, I give you a complete, faith building explanation of the above.

Since Jesus' death ratified the Abrahamic covenant, which granted us healing for our bodies, it only makes sense that the Scriptures ought to spell it out, over and over, that (because of this ratification) God's will, for us, is our complete healing at all times. Do the Scriptures spell this out over and over? In point of fact, the Scriptures do spell it out.

They spell it out by showing us that God has at least eight ways that He heals us. In this work, we refer to these eight ways as his Healing Delivery Vehicles. Of these eight Healing Delivery Vehicles, only one of them, "the anointing", requires nothing on the part of the one being healed. The other seven all require an act of faith on the part of the one being healed. Consequently, we must divide God's Healing Delivery Vehicles into two distinct sections or parts.

Part One contains no requirement at all for the one being healed. Part Two of God's "Healing Delivery Systems" requires an act of faith on the part of the one being healed. In the next few pages all eight of them are listed along with their Scripture references. Furthermore, your required act of faith is described for all seven of them.

Part One of God's Eight Healing Delivery Vehicles

Healing Delivery Vehicle #1

God delivers your healing through his anointing (Acts 19: 11-12) and the gifts of healing (1 Corinthians 12: 8-11).

Acts 19:11-12

11 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:

12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them. (KJV)

1 Cor 12:9

9 ..to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; (KJV)

Keep firmly fixed in your mind that this is the only way God heals which does not require an act of faith on the part of the one being healed. This is the "famed" anointing we emphasize so much in our Charismatic churches. But in our emphasizing it, we have made it dangerous. It is dangerous because we have left the impression to the uninitiated that if one is not healed in one of our great healing meetings, then all is lost. We have left two wrong impressions: God does not love them, and it is not God's will for them to be healed. So they give up. When they give up, they will die if their sickness is serious enough.

 

The leadership in today's healing movement and ministry must change this terrible mistake of stressing the anointing to the exclusion of God's other seven Healing Vehicles. We must place as much stress and emphasis on two Bible truths; namely, that the anointing is only one of eight ways God heals, and that no one controls it. We must emphasize that the anointing is sovereign. It is under God's exclusive control. No one can coax or coerce Him into touching and healing a specific person with it. It is absolutely under his sovereign control.

 

In other words, God grants some people a miraculous healing by the anointing. It appears to me, however, that He passes by most of them in the great healing meetings, leaving a huge number of people not healed. Moreover, the greatness and reputation of the man of God conducting the anointing meeting matters not; you cannot rely on the anointing to touch you. Although God may touch and heal others sitting right beside you, He may not touch and heal you with his miraculous anointing.

 

You cannot depend on this anointing. But you can always depend on the other seven Healing Delivery Vehicles. They must always work. They must always deliver your healing, and they always do just that. They always deliver the healing contained in them for every Christian.

 

I appeal to the leadership in the healing ministries. Place as much teaching and emphasis on the other seven ways that God heals his children as you do concerning the anointing that you do not and cannot control. Too many of God's children die prematurely because we overemphasize the anointing to the exact degree we under-emphasize the other seven Healing Delivery Vehicles.

Part Two of God's Eight Healing Delivery Vehicles

In Part Two, each of the seven Healing Delivery Vehicles (presented below) requires an act of faith on the part of the one being healed. Through one or more of these seven Healing Delivery Vehicles, Jesus must heal every Christian. He does not have to heal any Christian with the miraculous anointing and/or the gifts of healings. Since He does not have to heal anybody with the anointing, shouldn't we, the leaders in the healing ministries, plainly declare this fact, so there could never be any misunderstanding about it?

Healing Delivery Vehicle #2

God delivers your healing through the laying on of hands.

Mark 16:18

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. (KJV)

Your act of faith is very simple in this Healing Delivery Vehicle. Just lay your hands on the sick person and say, "In Jesus' Name, Heal!" If you are the sick one, you may choose to get a believer to do it for you.

Healing Delivery Vehicle #3

God delivers your healing with his anointing oil combined with the prayer of faith.

Mark 6:13

13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them. (KJV)

James 5:14-16

14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (KJV)

Your act of faith to activate this Vehicle is also very simple. Anoint the sick one with oil and ask God, based on His own Word, to heal him/her. If you are the sick one, have someone (the elders) do it for you. For a simple step by step guide to obtaining the healing God promised to you in the Abrahamic covenant, see our book, How To Obtain Abraham's Blessings.

Healing Delivery Vehicle #4

God delivers your Healing by your believing and then speaking his Word.

Mark 11:23

23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. (KJV)

Your part in this is to command (using Jesus' name) a sickness to leave your body or the body of a loved one. You will have whatsoever you say. The healing may not occur with just one command. If not, command it to go several times, even hours, days or weeks. You will win if you do not stop until the victory comes. The last chapter in this author's book, How To Exercise God's Megaton Power Now, gives practical, complete instructions in how to wage a protracted war against a sickness and win.

Healing Delivery Vehicle #5

God delivers your Healing through the agreement on earth by two or more people.

Matt 18:19-20

19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (KJV)

Your part here is to get a believer to agree with you about your healing or the healing of a loved one. Be sure the one you get to agree with you is, in fact, a believer and not one who just gives lip service to it. This subject is covered completely, in my book, How To Obtain Abraham's Blessings.

Healing Delivery Vehicle #6

God delivers your Healing by your believing that you receive it when you pray.

Mark 11:24

24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. (KJV)

"Believe", in Scripture, means to "walk out what the Scripture says." In this case, your part is to "act like it has happened", even before your healing occurs. In other words, make plans for your future just as though your sickness is already a thing of the past. This is Bible "believing." Also see How To Obtain Abraham's Blessings.

Healing Delivery Vehicle #7

God delivers your healing through the LORD's Supper when you understand it and receive it by faith.

1 Cor 11:26-30

26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the LORD's death till he come.

27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the LORD's body.

30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. (KJV)

Your part in this one is to understand the difference between the LORD's body and His blood. His blood was given for the remission of your sins. His body was broken for your physical healing. Take the LORD's Supper with this distinction in mind, and as you do, God will actualize in your body the healing procured by the breaking of Christ's body. My book, What've They Done With Abraham's Blessings? covers this subject completely.

Healing Delivery Vehicle #8

God delivers your healing through using Jesus' Name like a battering ram and a sledge hammer.

John 14:13-14

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. (KJV)

Acts 3:1-8

1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.

2 And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.

5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

8 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. (KJV)

Your part here is simply to command the sickness to go. The root meaning of the word ask in both John 14: 13-14 is "command." When these words are used in relationship with a "thing" or a "whatsoever", they should be translated "command". When these words are used in relationship with God, they should be translated "ask in the strongest manner possible." We do not command God, but we are authorized to command things, "in Jesus' Name".

Therefore, since sickness is a "thing" and a "whatsoever," your part in this is simply to command the sickness to go, "in Jesus' Name." Keep on commanding the sickness until it is gone. Many sicknesses require you to keep on commanding them for a period of time before you completely win the battle. But start now and keep on commanding it untill you achieve complete victory in Jesus' Name. Most healings, in Vehicles #2 through #8, are a process of war, requiring an extended period of time. See chapter two in How To Obtain Abraham's Blessings.
