I Am The Lord That Healeth Thee
The gift of salvation has been preached and demonstrated in the hearts of mankind throughout the world. Yet in many situations, physical healing becomes less then priority or not even mention as a doctrine practiced in today’s theology. The Bible quickly abolishes man’s ungrounded doctrine by Old and New Testament scriptures proving otherwise. There are two foundation scriptures to note among many others upon the topic of divine healing. In Exodus 15:26 “. . . For I am the Lord that healeth thee.” In Matt. 8:35 “And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.”
The doctrine in regards to the atonement has been limited to only scriptural healing during this life. Salvation by the atonement would include spiritual and bodily healing in the atonement. The definition for Atonement according to the Merriam- Webster Dictionary, “the reconciliation of God and man through the death of Jesus Christ. This doctrine of salvation could be defined, a man who confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and savior based upon John the third chapter and Romans the tenth chapter has received forgiveness of sins and eternal life through a born again experience. The Greek word for salvation is sozo, which means to save, heal, and deliver. Bodily healing in the atonement would be inclusive according to the Greek definition.
