When you read about destroying enemies in the Old Testament, you have to apply that in your life today as spiritual enemies, such as sickness and disease.
Animal sacrifices are killed in a humane way with the least possible suffering.
However our Lord Jesus suffered pain before He died bodily (not spiritually) on the cross.
He bore all our sins and pains in His body.
The animal sacrifices are flayed (skin removed) after they are killed before they are placed on the altar.
Jesus was scourged and the skin His back was all gone as well before He went on the cross.
Jesus could feel physical pain.
After Jesus died on the cross, He went to hell to proclaim the work of redemption to those there, before He was raised to life again on the third day.
Deuteronomy 25:1-3 - Jesus was scourged using the Roman flagellum (aka cat o' nine tails). It is a octopus-like whip with many hooks, shards of bone, etc that latch onto the victim's back and when it is pulled out, the flesh of the victim is ripped out along with it.
The cat o' nine tails hits the victim's back about 9 times with each blow. Jesus was beaten 40 blows with this.
““If there is a dispute between men, and they come to court, that the judges may judge them, and they justify the righteous and condemn the wicked, then it shall be, if the wicked man deserves to be beaten, that the judge will cause him to lie down and be beaten in his presence, according to his guilt, with a certain number of blows. Forty blows he may give him and no more, lest he should exceed this and beat him with many blows above these, and your brother be humiliated in your sight.” (Deuteronomy 25:1-3 NKJV)
Isaiah 53:4-6 - By Jesus' stripes we are healed!
"Griefs" in Hebrew is "kholee" which means diseases.
Kholee is a noun. The root word "Khalah" means to be worn down in strength.
For example: the devil shoots you something that makes you worry and it makes you tired.
"Sorrows" in Hebrews is "makob" which means pain.
Jesus bore our diseases and carried our pains.
The root word of heal "rapha" means to rest. The secret to receiving healing is to be restful.
If you're handling an issue that wears you out in strength, then you're not supposed to be handling it - It's not God's will for you.
For wives, if you want to tell/request your husband about something, wait till he's smiling, refreshed and recharged before doing so. Don't approach him when he's worn out in strength - you don't want to hear what he has to say to you and he doesn't mean it.
“Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 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. All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:4-6 NKJV)
The singular tense cannot be used if there was even a sliver of skin left on Jesus' back.
Most people back then were either scourged or crucified. Jesus was both scourged and crucified.
That's why He fell when carrying the cross - there was no skin left on His back. His bones and possibly even internal organs were exposed.
Of all the pictures, animals and occupations that God uses in the Bible, the one that He loves most is of the Shepherd and His flock of sheep.
The lessons from the Shepherd will teach you how to be a good leader.
"Bishop" here means to oversee. God is always watching over us.
The key to receive God's healing is to see yourself as a sheep who is looked after by Jesus your Shepherd.
If we want to receive the healing benefits of the stripe of Jesus' we have to believe that we are the righteousness of God in Christ.
“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. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.” (1 Peter 2:24-25 KJV)
It is God's Will for us to be Healed
You don't have to be good or even saved to be healed.
John 16:23-24 - The word "joy" is "Chara" in Greek. It is tied up with the Greek word for grace which is "charis".
We rejoice because of grace!
““And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” (John 16:23-24 NKJV)
Matthew 8:16-17 - Jesus did not leave anyone out who came to Him for healing. He healed them all.
“When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.”” (Matthew 8:16-17 NKJV)
There is a Hong Kong flu out there now. We cannot feel vulnerable and unprotected.
We are in the secret place of the Most High. Feel protected, secure and loved by God.
A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall NOT come near you.
Jesus took our reproach. Those who are trying to insult you, their insults already fell on Jesus.
You will not experience the pain and hurt from the insults, whether in person or on social media, etc.
For counsellors, don't feed on the sin (of your patient), feed on the sin offering (Jesus).
II Corinthians 7:10 - Only one type of sorrow is good - godly sorrow.
Godly sorrow is something that hurts you but causes you to repent (change of mind).
The word "salvation" here is "sozo" in Greek.
Godly sorrow produces "sozo" which is wholeness, health, deliverance, etc. you won't regret it!
On the other hand, the sorrow of the world produces death.
“For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.” (II Corinthians 7:10 NKJV)
A Merry Heart Leads to Health and Healing
Proverbs 17:22 - A merry heart is a medicine that is not chemical and it has no side effects.
If your joy is independent of happenings then you can be joyful all the time. Rejoice in the Lord!
Don't wait until everything happens the way you want to before choosing to be happy.
A broken spirit dries the bones - many diseases involve dried up bones.
“A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22 NKJV)
Deuteronomy 34:7 - "Natural vigor" can be translated as "moisture". Moses' body remained physically young!
“Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died. His eyes were not dim nor his natural vigor diminished.” (Deuteronomy 34:7 NKJV)
II Corinthians 5:17 - After we become believers, our DNA is from God, not from our parents.
We have Jesus' DNA and health is written in it.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (II Corinthians 5:17 NKJV)
Proverbs 15:13 - You cannot claim to have a merry heart when you're sulking and frowning all the time.
If you have a merry heart it will show as a smile on your face.
Sorrow (Makob) causes a broken spirit.
“A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.” (Proverbs 15:13 NKJV)
Psalm 129:3 - This is talking about Jesus being scourged with the cat o' nine tails.
“The plowers plowed on my back; They made their furrows long.”” (Psalms 129:3 NKJV)
Ecclesiastes 9:7-9 - This is talking about Holy Communion.
We should partake of it with joy and a merry heart, not with a serious and somber/heavy mood.
The joy will allow the benefits of Holy Communion to flow in your life!
“Go, eat your bread with joy, And drink your wine with a merry heart; For God has already accepted your works. Let your garments always be white, And let your head lack no oil. Live joyfully with the wife whom you love all the days of your vain life which He has given you under the sun, all your days of vanity; for that is your portion in life, and in the labor which you perform under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 9:7-9 NKJV)
Jesus picked up the cross after He fell because He saw the joy set before Him. He saw you and I and would not die until He hung on the cross.
By hanging on the cross, Jesus redeemed us from the curse.
