Who his own self [Jesus] bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
(1 Peter 2:24)
In this scripture, Peter is looking back to the sacrifice of Christ. He’s looking back to the time before Jesus went to the Cross, after stripes were laid upon His back.
And Peter said, “…by whose stripes ye were healed.” He didn’t say, “You’re going to be healed.” He said, “You were healed.” This means that in the mind of God, your healing was accomplished back then.
There are a number of scriptural methods by which healing can be obtained. But the best one is when we simply know for ourselves – when we know what has been secured for us and what belongs to us.
Then we can thank God our Father for our perfect healing and perfect deliverance. And if Satan endeavors to put sickness or disease upon us, we can simply laugh at him because we know what the Word of God says.
Matthew 8:17 says, “…Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” You’re not going to be healed. In the mind of God, you were healed when those stripes were laid on Jesus. In the mind of Jesus, we’re already healed. We’re not going to be healed; we were healed.
Confession I was healed over two thousand years ago when the stripes were laid on Jesus’ back. I’m not trying to get healed. I’m already healed
