Who his own self 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.(1Pet 2:24)
Church people everywhere believe that Jesus bore their sins. But many of them don't believe that He bore their sicknesses as well. The Bible says that Jesus bore our sins and our sicknesses.
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and BARE OUR SICKNESSES. (Matt. 8:17)
Who his own self 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.(1Pet 2:24)
Jesus not only bore our sins, He also bore our sicknesses. That settles it! Why look for a way around this great truth? Yet so many people do.
But if Matthew 8:17 and First Peter 2:24 are lies, then the whole Bible is a lie. And if the Bible is a lie, then there is no God, and Jesus Christ is not the Son of God. He would be a fraud and a fake.
Then, of course, the New Testament would not be true. And the Old Testament would be a fable. There would be no God, no Heaven, and no hell.
But, hallelujah, there is a God! And the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God! And the Old Testament is not a fable; it's true. And the New Testament is true. The whole Bible is true! Jesus not only bore our sins, He also took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses.
Confession: Jesus bore my sins. It is the will of God for me to be saved and delivered from sin. Jesus also bore my sicknesses. Therefore, it is the will of God that I be healed and delivered from sickness!
