His stripes, we were healed and by His stripes we are still healed

Three Prophets and Jesus’
Isaiah gave us the prophecy in present tense. He said we are healed with
His stripes. In other words, when Isaiah saw the events of Isaiah 53
unfolding, he saw it in present time to himself.
This is even more remarkable since these events would not occur for
hundreds of years in the future. Nevertheless, Isaiah saw prophetic
events that were so real to him they were recorded by him as happening
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our
iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his
stripes we are healed. (KJV)
When the Apostle Peter came on the scene, he remembered Isaiah’s
prophecy. He remembered that Isaiah saw it present to himself. But Peter
knew that what Isaiah saw was still in existence.
1 Pet 2:24
24 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. (KJV)
Notice Peter’s awareness here that the healing produced by Jesus’
stripes occurred in the past. Specifically, he knew that Isaiah said,
“..ye were healed.” Yes! Isaiah referred to the striping hundreds of
years ago but Peter saw the same healing-producing stripes as still in
existence. He said “ye are healed” now because of the same stripes
Isaiah saw then.
Peter also gave us a blast of the prophetic trumpet again when he
emphasized whose healing stripes they were. He said “by whose” stripes
we were healed. Do you see it? His expression, “by whose,” identifies
the same Jesus that Isaiah described above. To put it differently, Peter
and Isaiah saw the same one who was wounded, bruised, chastised and
striped. Any way we view it, Jesus was beaten unrecognizably and striped
for our healing.
Now we see
Matthew’s take on all the above.
16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were
possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and
healed all that were sick:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet,
saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. (KJV)
For Matthew, the reason Jesus “healed all that were sick” in verse 16
above, was because Jesus “took our infirmities and sicknesses” in verse
Please remember here! Matthew’s expression, “took our infirmities and
sicknesses” above was the beginning of the fulfillment of Isaiah’s
prophecy in 53:5 above. Now let us make all this workable and practical
for us today.
When I was just starting to understand that healing belonged to us
Christians today, I was called to the hospital to see a lady, a member
of my church, who was dying with cancer. Unfortunately, neither she nor
her family believed we can know that it is the will of God to heal us
Nothing seemed to
get her any relief.
I did everything I knew to minister healing to her. Nothing seemed to
get her any relief. Finally, the only Scriptures left in my arsenal of
healing weapons were the two Scriptures above. So I started quoting them
out loud over here. I confessed them over and over and over her frail
Let me make a long story short. She recovered. She lived many years
after this. The family was grateful but did not advance much in the
healing theology. But she lived years after this.
When you have a difficult case, confess (quote) the simple statement:
“By his stripes I am healed!” “By his stripes I am healed!” By his
stripes I am healed!” Quote them out loud till the healing comes.
You must see our Chapter Four in our book,
Healing for the Rest of Us.
One preacher brother said I must keep this book in print. He said it
contains more healing information between its covers than anything he
has ever read. He said one can start preaching it from the front but
will never preach it all. See Chapter Four for a more complete
explanation of the Scriptures used in this faith building newsletter.
