Portraits of Redemption – 3A
Is Physical Healing Included in Redemption?
God is revealing himself to us today, just as he did long ago. He is revealing himself to us as he leads us from the vestiges of bondage into the fullness of freedom. It doesn’t matter how many years we have called ourselves a Christian. The question is, where are we now, have we grown? Are we carnal? Do we believe God’s word? Because what we believe, we will act upon.
The problem with healing is a problem with the integrity of the word. The Word of God is a healer today. In the perfect redemption that God the Father wrought in Jesus, there is perfect healing for every believer. See Psalm 107:2. There is a common view among Christians that healing is not in the redemptive work of Jesus, that healing belongs to us if we have faith enough to claim it. That premise holds that faith is the gift of God and therefore, if he gives you faith for healing, then it shall be. Otherwise your only hope is in the arm of flesh (that is, in doctors and medical science). The second view holds that healing is a part of the plan of redemption, that disease comes with the fall of man, and is a work of the adversary. This message will address this view.
Supporting scriptures for this message include: Exodus 15:22–26, 23:26–26, Deuteronomy 28:1–26, Galatians 3:14, Psalm 103:3, Proverbs 4:22, Jeremiah 30:17, John 6:63, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Peter 1:3, and Nahum 1:9.

Exodus 12:8, 11 NKJV
8 Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. 11 And thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. So you shall eat it in haste. It is the Lord’s Passover.
Special Healing Prayer: Lion of Judah Worship Center includes time for Holy Spirit directed healing prayer. The entire service has been separated into three parts. We encourage you to enjoy all three, as a three-course meal!
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and his anointing.”
