“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
Man is a three part being made up of spirit, soul and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23). When Adam sinned it affected all three parts of man. The sin nature dominated our spirit and mind (Ephesians 2:3) while sickness took hold of our body. On the cross, Jesus redeemed all three parts of man. He paid the price for our sin and our sickness!
It just makes sense that if God created all three parts of man that He would redeem all three parts of man when He sent His Son to die on the cross. God does not only love your soul and spirit, He also loves your body!
In 1 Corinthians 6:20 we learn that Jesus not only purchased our spirit and soul on the cross, but that, with His blood, He also purchased our physical body. It declares, “For you were bought with a price; therefore glorify God IN YOUR BODY and in your spirit, WHICH ARE GOD’S.” When God purchased your spirit, He completely freed it from sin; and when He purchased your body He completely freed it from sickness.
Here in Isaiah 53:5, in one amazing verse of scripture, we find complete redemption for all three parts of man! We find redemption for our spirit when it says, “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities.” We find redemption for our soul when it says, ‘The chastisement of our peace was upon Him.” And we find redemption from sickness in our body when it says, “And by His stripes we are healed.”
You never again have to question whether or not it is God’s will for you to be healed. After all, would God ever say “no” to something Jesus died for us to have? You do not have to be sick anymore! Jesus has paid the price for your sickness and disease! You can be healed!
Confession: With His blood, Jesus purchased my spirit, soul and body. I am free from sin and sickness!
