All of your sins are paid for… IF you will believe


The key to healing is to decide what Jesus CAN do, but equally you must decide what He DID do on the cross. Consider what it means for Him to be the Lamb of God. What is the result of your faith IF you believe HE HAS ALREADY paid for the sins of the world?

Consider these verses…

since a death has taken place which rescues and delivers and redeems them – Heb 9:15

For then would He often have had to suffer [over and over again] since the foundation of the world. But as it now is, He has once for all at the consummation and close of the ages appeared to put away and abolish sin by His sacrifice [of Himself] – Heb 9:26

Christ, having been offered to take upon Himself and bear as a burden the sins of many once and once for all, will appear a second time, not to carry any burden of sin nor to deal with sin – Heb 9:28

So the bible clearly says… He is never going to pay again. There is NO MORE burden of sin. All the sins from the foundation of the world up to the very end of it all… it’s ALL PAID FOR.

Is that why the bible says we have an overwhelming victory and total freedom… IF WE BELIEVE in Jesus Christ?

we have been made holy (consecrated and sanctified) through the offering made once for all of the body of Jesus Christ (the Anointed One) – Heb 10:10

For by a single offering He has forever completely cleansed and perfected those who are consecrated and made holy. – Heb 10:14

So the bible says that BECAUSE your sins are paid for (IF you believe) then you are in fact made clean and cleansed and perfected and made holy and consecrated and sanctified!

Wow. But it depends… do you believe what the bible says that Jesus did for you?

after He had offered a single sacrifice for our sins [that shall avail] for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, then to wait until His enemies should be made a stool beneath His feet – Heb 10:12-13

So given that He has overwhelmingly overcome… He is now simply waiting for His church to enter into what HE HAS DONE and to overcome.

But the key is your faith… what do you believe that Jesus did for you?

  1. Thanks, Mark. Your reasoning seems solid, though I would hasten to add that the spiritual aspect of deliverance / healing seems to transcend all others.
    Example:
    I’ve known people who were diagnosed with cancern, who simply resigned themselves to die. They went through the motions of various treatments. But, they lived with one foot in the grave. No matter how much I exhorted them to do otherwise or prayed with them or prayed for them, they just gave up. Bitterness and anger were their most common emotions.
    On the other hand, I’ve known people who fought valiently, prayed diligently, remained optimistic and never wavered in faith. They prayed for healing to for their bodies, but none was received. Nevertheless, they were still delivered from their cancer, because their spirits were not afflicted. One of my best friends lived his last four years in a body that was riddled with cancer. Every day that he lived, every phase of his failing health seemed to be accompanied growth spurts in his faith. When the time of his departure came, he was so full of faith there simply was no room left for unbelief, his deliverance was complete.

    I’ve been through SO MUCH deliverance that I consider myself an expert in this area. No kidding. So I’m not suggesting we pray for healing for our bodies. That really only works if the Lord has mercy or takes pity and gives us grace.

    No, I’m saying that WHAT WORKS is to take a firm stand that IT HAS BEEN DONE and remain unmoved. To claim our inheritance. To leave Egypt and enter into the promised land. THAT IS WHAT WORKS incredibly well on sickness… and on death, freemasonry, witchcraft and whatever else is trespassing in our lives. Truly.

    It’s a different way of thinking and standing. And I’m not confident that I can explain it via text. But I know that I can explain it face to face with a bible open. And I’ve seen the remarkable changes in people’s lives as they perceive what Jesus really did. We all think we KNOW… but it’s so plainly obvious that we DON’T know. And Paul says the truth very frankly… our faith is incomplete.

    Don’t fight for the land (e.g your body) but instead you just STAND on the land that Jesus HAS bought with His life. And refuse to budge. We overcome through HIS BLOOD and our confession. Don’t reason “HE WILL heal me” instead decide that Jesus DID IT on the cross and sickness is trespassing and has to leave.

  2. What an excellent post! Not that it matters one way or another, but I’m in complete agreement with you.
    There was, however, one thought that kept running through my mind as I read this. It is an echo of the statement made by the father of the boy who was possessed by an evil spirit. He said, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief” (Mark 9:24, TNIV).
    How is it possible to believe, yet still need help overcoming unbelief?

    Great question Bill! The answer to this question radically changed my thinking.

    Let’s look at 1 Thess 3:10 “that we may see you face to face and mend and make good whatever may be imperfect and lacking in your faith.” The answer (I believe) is that our faith can be complete in some areas and totally missing in others. Paul wanted to teach people what Christ had done, so their faith would be made complete.

    For example a person may have faith that Jesus has died for them, but not that He has cleansed them of all sin to the extent that they are actually “holy” (which is what you’d be if ALL of your sins were paid for). Or a person might believe that they are set free from depression because of Jesus sacrifice, but not from cancer. In many (or most) of Paul’s letters he encourages us to come to a full understanding of the power of what happened on the cross.

    I think that is the reason the church is so powerless at this time… because our faith is incomplete (1 Thess 3:10).

    God bless you Bill!
