JESUS CHRIST is the Healer and all healing flows from Him.

Where does our healing come from?

1. Healing comes from CHRIST JESUS's wounds:

Isaiah 53:5 (Amplified Bible)

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.

1 Peter 2:24 (Amplified Bible)

He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed.

2. Healing comes from CHRIST JESUS's words:

Exodus 15:26 (Amplified Bible)

Saying, If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God and will do what is right in His sight, and will listen to and obey His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I brought upon the Egyptians, for I am the Lord Who heals you.

3. Healing comes from CHRIST JESUS's Presence inside of us:

Jeremiah 8:22 (Amplified Bible)

Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people restored? [Because Zion no longer enjoyed the presence of the Great Physician!]

GOD will heal our 3 parts: hearts, ears and eyes.

1. Hearts - it's deceitful above all things, and is sick. It needs to be healed by the LORD.

Isaiah 6:10 (Amplified Bible)

Make the heart of this people fat; and make their ears heavy and shut their eyes, lest they see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their hearts and turn again and be healed.

Deuteronomy 7:17 (Amplified Bible)

If you say in your [minds and] hearts, These nations are greater than we are; how can we dispossess them?

1 John 3:20 (Amplified Bible)

Whenever our hearts in [tormenting] self-accusation make us feel guilty and condemn us. [For we are in God’s hands.] For He is above and greater than our consciences (our hearts), and He knows (perceives and understands) everything [nothing is hidden from Him].
