We unpack the Hebrew of Isaiah 53. Translated into theological language, we will discover that healing is in the atonement. This is great news.
God wants healing for you. God did not make this world fallen. Therefore, God did not make you sick. God did not even choose to let you get sick; God only chose to let Adam and Eve have authority on this earth. And you know what happened after that. BUT –and a big but — Jesus came. Jesus died for our sins. And we are learning and growing. In the end all the enemies will be put down. The last one is death. In the meantime, we are learning more about getting healed. This is a fix to the brokeness that came in with the fall. Might be a fix to poor health habits. In any case, God would like to get this healing to you. Jesus’ suffering and death was enough. We don’t always download all the benefits of it — but let’s consider it. When we realize that God desires us to get healed, that should help.
Today, we will consider healing from the standpoint of what the Apostle Peter wrote.

Please let these gals increase your faith. They are being very reserved.. because they were afraid of being on the radio and because I threatened them not to glorify me. It is all true. They were healed. For sure. We were all there. Me, them, other people.
Your children can be healed. The trick is to seek God, to get lost in God. Alternatively, sometimes, when it is a learning problem, you just have faith and look for a way to do it. A door or a window will open. Sometimes it is press through. Sometimes it is just relax into it.
Do not ask why, because in that accusatory state, you are not in the right vibe to receive. You may be told why later, when you are listening better. Get out of anger. Get out of resentment. Get out of accusatory. Get into love, joy, and peace. Really, this is really important.
Remember that Jesus said we must forgive or God wont’ forgive us? Just believe it and do it. It is not making the persecutor/criminals right. It is just letting go of hate or attachment to the suffering. Remember the doctor that came on the show years ago? He said you are all one state of the other. Hate and sick or love and well. You can’t be a piece of both. Just amazing. And worth thinking about.
So believing that God loves you and going forward on that basis just works. We are learning about that. We are also working on some episodes for you. I’ve been holding one until we are ready. It will be great. And then we are going to do some praying for our children. How would you like that? We will pray together. Answers and prayers and blessings. We will learn how to love by receiving God’s love. That is what it is all about.
We unfold the idea of grace and how it relates to healing. Many people use Paul’s words about grace being sufficient as if God is saying we must just suffer and not expect help. Does that make sense? Let’s start with definitions of words. What is grace, after all?
Grace is unmerited favor, yes, but it is also the provision of help to get things done.
How would that apply to healing of learning problems for your children? I say we believe in healing and will take it anyway it comes: miraculously, natural healing as is given in creation, innovative teaching, or by whatever means. Hope and faith, then are the beginning points — not resignation and buckling under to suffering. We are called to suffer persecution and the difficulties of being God’s hand of love in the world, but nowhere are we told we are called to suffer simply because it is God’s will for us! or because the world is broken through the fall. No! Jesus came to redeem us. Let us believe, hope, and search for healing for our children.
