The Whole Picture: True Healing
By Brad Quiring on August 13, 2017
Isaiah 53:5: By Christ’s stripes we are healed from the eternal sickness of sin and all its consequences. Physical healing is one of the tools with which God works in our lives. It can be a sign of his undeniable power. Isaiah 53 is a powerful chapter in the Bible as it predicts not only Jesus coming to the earth, it prophecies his death, resurrection and the reason why he came. God’s redemption plan has not been about temporary healing of physical ailments. It is everything to do with saving our eternal lives from never ending punishment in hell for being sinners who sin. It has to do with God himself paying the terrible price that we owe for sins. It has to do with healing our souls and spirits from the sickness of sin that separates us from God and others.
