By His Wound We Were Healed

“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed” (1 Peter 2:24, EVS, emphasis mine). “But he was pierced for our transgressions;he was crushed for our iniquities;upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,and withContinue reading “By His Wound We Were Healed”

Concerning Spiritual: (14) One in Christ

We’re all different. We all have different personalities. Some are plumbers, business people, warriors, politicians, quick, slow, slim, fat, quiet, boisterous, rich, poor, etc. But we all belong to Christ. We are the body of Christ, and He loves us all the same. We’re like pieces of a puzzle. Each piece makes up the whole.Continue reading “Concerning Spiritual: (14) One in Christ”

The Author of Sickness

Knowing the source of disease and infirmity is very helpful to receiving healing from God. As long as we believe that God has made us sick, it will be difficult in receiving supernatural healing. This scripture should help make it clear: “Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death throughContinue reading “The Author of Sickness”

Substitution 101

Jesus’ spiritual, physical and emotional punishment was Him bearing the curse — the curse of spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical punishment of sin. His resurrection was so we can obtain and share in the same eternal life that He obtained by the resurrection. That eternal life, zoe in Greek, is life as God has it,Continue reading “Substitution 101”

What Jesus Bore

Jesus bore and took all of our physical, emotional, and mental weaknesses, infirmities, and sicknesses in His body. He bore and carried our spiritual death, sins, and iniquities with His death. Spiritual death is separation from God. Spiritual death is the absence of spiritual life. God is life. “For David says concerning Him:I foresaw theContinue reading “What Jesus Bore”

Concerning Spiritual: (13) Interpretation of Tongues

God, through the apostle Paul, tells us that He doesn’t want us to be ignorant of spiritual things: “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant” (1 Corinthians 12:1). Yet, so many of us are completely in the dark about the gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit. What aContinue reading “Concerning Spiritual: (13) Interpretation of Tongues”

Satanic Influence

“The ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me” (John 14:30). There is the obvious reason this verse is important. It means Jesus is without sin and can be the our sin substitute. Yet, I’ve come to see a deeper side to this statement. First lets take a look at somethingContinue reading “Satanic Influence”

Concerning Spiritual: (12) Tongues — For Private and Public Use

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, toContinue reading “Concerning Spiritual: (12) Tongues — For Private and Public Use”

Now Concerning Spiritual: (11) Tongues — An Initial Experience

I’ve saved tongues and interpretation of tongues for last. There’s a lot of misunderstanding and ignorance with tongues, because Satan has attacked this gift probably more than any other. If we allow the devil to keep us in the dark, our most valuable prayer gift will be stopped. We’ll also have to break this intoContinue reading “Now Concerning Spiritual: (11) Tongues — An Initial Experience”
