          We looked at this V. last time, but it's a good V to point out that it's God's will for us to be healed. We need to let that “I will” of Jesus settle it in your mind & in your heart forever. It's God's will for you to be healed.

I) The words that Jesus used here, when he said, “I will”, are the strongest words you can use to say that you would do something.

A) THE NIV says, “I am willing,” “Be clean!”

1) In the Wuest translation the leper said, “If you are willing, you have power to cleanse me.” Jesus said, “I desire it. Be clean at once.”

(a) This man knew that Jesus had the power to heal.

(b) The word “canst” in the KJV or “CAN” in the NKJV is the Greek word “dunamai” which is the root word for “dunamis”, God's miracle working power.

(c) So, the man didn't have any problem with the ability of Jesus, but he didn't know that it was also the Lord's will to healing him.

(d) Jesus said, “I am willing” or as the Wuest translation puts it, “I desire for you to be healed”.

2) When the leper asked Jesus to heal him, some other translations say that Jesus answered, “of course I want to”, “I do want to”, “Indeed I will”.

(a) I don't think that Jesus could make it any clearer that it is His will to heal.

B) Turn with me to NUM 21.

1) In this passage, we have the story of the children of Israel sick from SNAKEBITES.

2) NUM 21:7–9.

(a) Actually, this brazen serpent is a type of Christ.

(b) Jesus referred to it in John 3:14-15.

(c) It is a shadow of what Jesus provided for us by being put on the cross and being made sin for us.

3) As many as looked to the brazen serpent lived.

(a) Even so now, as many as look to Christ as their healer are healed.

C) All of us are on an equal basis when it comes to the benefits of the Atonement, or this redemptive plan.

1) THE words, “whosoever or whosoever will”, are usually used to invite sinners to be saved.

2) The words, “as many, everyone, all, and any” are many times used to invite the sick and diseased to be healed.

3) The answer to both invitations are always positively promised with a “shall be saved, shall have life, shall recover, shall raise him up, healed them all, and as many as touched him were healed.”

(a) When we do our part, God is always faithful to do his part.

(b) (HEB 10:23) Says, “Let us hold fast the profession of {our} faith without wavering; (for he {is} faithful that promised;).”

D) THE benefits of Calvary are for you. If God healed all then, He still heals all; that is, all that come to Him for healing.

1) (HEB 13:8) Says, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

2) MATT 12:14-15.

3) We always hear about the woman, with the issue of blood, who touched the hem of Jesus garment. She wasn't the only one who did the same thing. MATT 14:35-36.

4) (LUK 6:19) SAYS, “And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed {them} all.” One translation says, “& HE healed them all”. (Phillips Modern Translation).

II) MATT 8:16‑17 Jesus is still healing the sick, to fulfill the prophet's words: “Himself took our infirmities (WEAKNESSES), and bare {our} sicknesses (DISEASES)”.

A) You are included in the “our” of (MATT 8:17), & God is bound by his covenant to continue to heal all who are sick, in order to fulfill his word spoken by Isaiah.

1) PSA 89:34.

(a) (LUK 4:40) Says, “Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, AND HEALED THEM.”

2) Healing was for all in those days & Jesus the healer never changes.

B) Look w/ me over to ACTS 8:5‑8.

1) Jesus proved to be exactly the same when Philip preached Christ.

C) In (ACTS 3) Peter ministered to a crippled man & he was healed.

1) Jesus proved to be exactly the same for Peter.

III) Whenever Jesus was preached, as the sacrifice for our sins & SICKNESSES, healing was a result for the sick, as well as salvation for the lost.

A) ACTS 14:8‑10 (15)

1) Paul must have preached the Gospel of (salvation and) HEALING, because the lame man received faith to be healed while listening to Paul's message.

2) Whenever healing is preached in the full benefits for all, & people give heed to the Word preached, faith is always imparted & the people are always healed.

(a) True faith in the Word of God never fails.

(b) But faith cannot be exercised when someone is undecided as to whether God heals or not.

(c) (James 1:6‑7) says, “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. (7) For LET NOT THAT MAN THINK THAT HE SHALL RECEIVE ANY THING OF THE LORD.”

B) Let it be forever settled & established that it is God's will for you to be healed.

1) God said, “I am the Lord that healeth thee”

2) If God said it, & God cannot lie, He meant it. & If He meant it, healing is mine.
