I will intercede for Irene. Remember how sick I was in 05? Blood was leaking into my skin …. you all prayed for me including Chip. Isa 53 delivered me. It is God’s guarantee. God makes the scriptures to move from the spirit to the mind then to the heart by divine revelation. Then it manifests in the flesh. Our part is to believe the scriptures and to speak / meditate on them. Jesus said if you love me keep (hold on / value / cling) my word.
Matt 8:17 >> That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bore [our] sicknesses.
What does it mean that Jesus took / bore our sicknesses ? If Jesus bore them on the cross at the same time he bore our sins then just as we have the guarantee of forgiveness we also have His assurance of healing. Mat 8:17 quotes from Isa 53. I have copied this from the Hebrew English Interlinear version called JPS1917 – it is the version the Jews use today. The Jews do no believe in Messiah Jesus and do not believe in healing through the finished work on the cross. But they translate Isa 53 accurately as our KJV and NIV water down the literal Hebrew here. God asks who believes our (Father / Son / Holy Spirit) report? When we believe we are accounted righteous just as believing Abraham – by faith. That’s why Jesus called just the bent over woman daughter of Abraham (there were many other women there that he did not call daughter) and he said ought not this woman be healed – ought in Greek is dei, meaning by divine decree.
