You were healed at the cross: -
1 Peter 2v24
“ … who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to
sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
1 Peter 2v24 is the fulfilment scripture of the prophecy of Isaiah regarding what
Jesus would attain for us at the cross.
We notice firstly that Jesus bore our sins on the cross that we might/may/can live
for/have righteousness. We ‘have been’ made righteous in Christ Jesus. Jesus
atoned for our sins. The atonement means the exchange, or swop. Jesus became
sin and we became righteous at the cross. Jesus exchanged/swopped His
righteousness for our sins. He gave us His righteousness and He took our sins.
With the ‘root’ of sin dealt with so the fruit of good health, (the very health of Jesus),
At the cross Jesus took our sicknesses and gave us His health. This is an all-
encompassing health that includes spiritual, emotional, mental, physical,
circumstantial, and financial health.
We receive ALL things by Grace through Faith – Ephesians 2v8-9; “For by grace you
have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not
of works, lest anyone should boast.”
Once we firstly realise that we ‘have been healed’ we can apply faith to it and healing
is released through our bodies. Grace has given, faith believes this and releases it.
Jesus did a complete work for us at the cross; He said – “It is finished!” At the cross
He reconciled and restored ALL things into His very state of being and resources for
“By His stripes you were healed.” This is written in the past tense; IE it has already
happened. When we believe we receive – When we doubt, we do without.
Thank You Jesus for the finished work of the cross; I’m righteous and healed
because of it.
God bless, our fond love to you, yours, and all those dear to you –
