By Jesus’ Stripes You are Healed
1 Peter 2:24
24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.

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.

Cinni Frank: “I use to be gay and Jesus Christ revealed himself to me and my purpose in this world and I was set free. I have no desires for a same sex relationship. I was gay because I was broken and confused about who I was. Freedom is there to anyone who is willing to call upon Jesus Christ for his will for your life. Whom the Son Set Free is Free Indeed.”

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
24 when you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
- Physical, illness, disease or injury.
- Cynthia healed and minister said healing was not physical.
This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:
“He took up our infirmities
and carried our diseases.”
- Jesus healing ministry based on the cross and his sufferings.
- God can heal the whole man.
23 Now if a child can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me for healing the whole man on the Sabbath?
- Sin, bad attitude and paralyzed.
- Mathew quotes from the most famous Old Testament passage about the passion of the Christ.
4 Surely he took up our infirmities
and carried our sorrows,
yet we considered him stricken by God,
smitten by him, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
- Jesus did more than shed his blood. He painfully shed his blood.
- Matthew confirms this is about Christ healing ministry.
- Passion of the Christ: Infirmities, sorrows, stricken, afflicted, pierced, crushed, punishment.
- Healing of the Christ: Peace and healed.
4 But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law,
5 to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.
- Receive the full rights of sons.
- You must be a son to receive the rights of sonship.
- God promised healing and prosperity under the Old Covenant, but many deny it under the New Covenant.
6 But the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, and it is founded on better promises.
- Rights must be claimed.
- “By faith receive the promise”
- Claim baggage if you show the receipt. You don’t stop believing that the bags are yours simply because they are not in your possession.
