Kenneth Copeland - Receive Your Healing From Jesus
TOPICS: Healing

First of all, let's turn to Matthew 22. We talk about this a lot, but let's settle this and you can mark it in your own Bible. In Matthew 22:41, "While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying, What think ye of Christ, or what think ye of Messiah? Whose son is he? They say unto him, the son of David, the son of David". Now this comes up and is a big clue, and you can use this same thing. All right, now, well, let's look at the one since we were in Mark. Let's go back over there to Mark 10:46. "And they came to Jericho, as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, set by the wayside begging. And when he had heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me".

Now, what did he say? "Jesus, thou Son of David, do hesed for me". Oh, Lord. Thank You, Jesus. Glory to God. Thank You, Jesus. "Many charged him he should hold his peace, but he cried out the more a great deal, Son of David, do hesed for me. And Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called". And they called the blind man and say, well, you know, good. Isn't it good? He's calling for you. But he didn't pay attention to that. "Jesus answered and said to him, what would you that I should do unto thee"? Bartimaeus needed to say it. "The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. Jesus said, go your way. Your faith has made you whole. Immediately he recovered his sight and followed Jesus in the way".

Now let's look at it in Luke 18. Luke being a physician goes into more detail because he was writing documentary to Theopolis. He addressed him at the beginning. And the reason he knew more about the Christmas story is because Luke interviewed her in Ephesus, where she was living with John. Remember at the cross, he said, "Behold, your mother, behold, your son". So he took care of her the rest of his life. And Timothy was a pastor. And the apostle Paul writes that no man despise your youth now. Here's the apostle John and Jesus' mother. What am I going to preach today? I'm so young. Here he goes. That'd be a little tough. But he was called to preach. And he was called to preach that congregation. So the Lord saw to it that the right preacher was there to minister to his mother. And to minister to a man that had seen it all. And all of that's rolling through his mind. And this young man. Well, you can see that.

So now, in Luke 18:35. "And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging: And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant. And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by. And he cried, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me, anointed one, son of David". He called him Messiah. He knew who he was. "And they which went rebuked him, he said, hold his peace. He cried so much the more". Means he was shouting. "Thou son of David, have mercy on me. He stood and commanded him to be brought to him. And when it was come near, he asked, what will you have I should do? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. Jesus said to him, receive your sight. Your faith has saved you. And immediately he received his sight and followed him, glorifying God and all the people that saw it". Praise God. Thank You, Jesus.

Now, let's look at it again. In Matthew 20:30. "Behold, two blind men sitting by the wayside, when they heard it, crying out, have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David. The multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace. How they cried more, saying, have mercy on us. Jesus stood still and called them and said, What would you do that I should do to you? They say unto him, Lord, open, their eyes may be opened. So Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. And immediately they received sight and they followed him. That's fulfilled, which was spoken by the prophets saying". He wore a beggar's coat. He had presented himself to the priests. Well, both these men had. But Bartimaeus had presented that he wore a garment that allowed him to be in places where there were a lot of people. That he was actually blind. And his coat proved that.

So go back and study all of those. When he called him, he shed his garment. That's the reason Jesus said, "Your faith has made you whole". Because he literally said, "I don't need this anymore". He dropped that beggar's coat and he followed him in the way. So, praise God, at least we have his name. He's not... Now, the other one we don't. But at least we have Bartimaeus' name and he's no longer blind Bartimaeus. He's Bartimaeus. Amen. Now, look at that. I mean, he just cried out to him, Son of David, have mercy on me. Jesus stopped. Now, notice this. Jairus said, "I pray you, come lay hands on my daughter. She shall live". He went with him. Well, faith took him home with him. On the way home, faith stopped him. And he said, "Who touched my clothes"? Well, he's Jesus, you ought to know. Well, no. He's Jesus, yes, but he's a man, anointed. He didn't know who he was. He had to find out.

So, he stopped and listened to her long enough for that daughter to die. So, that's the reason we know it was 12 years. That's the reason we know it was many physicians. So, and all the time, Jairus was standing there and did not say another word. He'd already spoken his faith. And he trusted this man. Even after they said, she's dead. He still didn't say anything. Because Jesus answered. And see how, do you see how he dealt with death? Stop the fear. Stop the fear. And then John went ahead and taught about that. Perfecting, developing love, growing love. Love-filled faith casts it out because it has torment. All of these things combined. Because he is the same yesterday, today, and forever. And we have the privilege of looking back and living in these covenants.

Hebrews 8:6. "Now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant which was established upon better promises". What is a mediator? He's one that stands in the gap. You could put it like this. He's the only person in the history of mankind, raised from the dead, seated at the right hand of majesty to probate his own will. That's a mediator. He's here to see to it it comes to pass. I mean, he is our high priest of our confession. Third chapter of Hebrews. Praise God. Thank You Lord Jesus. The mediator of a better covenant with better promises. And he's alive today and it is the everlasting covenant. Thank You Jesus. So now, I want to look at this woman in Luke chapter 13. 13:10. Now, in Luke 13, this settles the question. This is good. Luke 13, verse 10. "And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And behold, look here. There was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity 18 years". Well, just do a little math. Take 30 to 33 and minus 18. And you see how old Jesus was when that thing got on her.

So, I don't know. She may have been older than him. But here it is. He laid his hands on her. Now, look here. Now, wait a minute. Woman, thou art loosed from your infirmity. Now, I want you to see this. You're loosed from your infirmity. Then he laid his hands on her. He spoke it and then he didn't do it all at one time. I only say what I hear my Father say. I only do what I see my Father do. Well, that's the way the Father said, do this. Speak to her. Now, it doesn't say so. But I envision, woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. I'm envisioning her. She couldn't raise up. Then he laid his hands on her immediately she was made straight. Praise God. I saw that happen in Jamaica. Woman, a man asked me to preach on Sunday morning. And I asked him, I said, "How long do you want me to take, Keith"? He said, "Give them off from one to two if you want to". I said, really? He said, "Don't give them off at all unless you..." But anyway, I did and came back. And the place was jammed out.

I mean, it was celebrating Jamaica's independence. And they brought a woman, I found out later it was her son and grandson that did it, in a bed sheet. And she was in a ball. I mean, she couldn't bed up. She was laying on her side. She's like this one. She bowed over. She couldn't straighten up. So she's on her side. But she brought her shoes. And while I preached long enough, all of a sudden, a crutch went right straight up and it was on. And I just kind of stood back and watched it. And in the midst of that, she just got up and put her shoes on. Phew. Glory to God. Right in the middle of all that. Praise God. "He laid his hands on her. Immediately, she was made straight and glorified God". I mean, she started praising God the minute she was made straight. She just stood up and started glorifying God. And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath day. And he said unto the people, there are six days which man ought to work.

And them therefore come and be healed. She couldn't. He wasn't preaching healing or she would have gotten healed the same as she did with Jesus. Because God already said in his Word, "I am the God that heals you". And he said, "I will put none of the diseases that I put on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord that healeth". What was that all about? Had Moses gone into Pharaoh and said, "Let my people go". And he said, "Well, okay, that's fine". They wouldn't have had to do all that. But there was no way he's going to do that. And God, for the first time, up to then he had been El Shaddai. The God of more than none. But now he has become Jehovah. Jehovah. Oh. And under that, the six redemptive names of God. Phew. Jehovah Rapha. The God that heals. Jehovah Tsidkenu. Jehovah Shalom. Our banner, our healer. The one that never forsakes us. Hallelujah. So. Praise You, Jesus.

Listen to what he said. "You hypocrite. Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or his donkey from the stall and lead him away to watering? And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound low these 18 years, be loosed from this bond on the seventh day"? Well, I settled it. Two things. She's a daughter of Abraham. Well, so are you. We already found that out. And if you're in Christ, then are you Abraham's seed and heirs according to his promise? Well, then you ought to be made straight. You ought not have an infirmity. Amen. Hallelujah. 18 years that woman had been like that, going to that same synagogue, and I don't know what she's hearing, but it wasn't that. And Jesus called him a hypocrite. You two-faced hypocrite. She's a daughter of Abraham, and Satan has bound her. You wouldn't even treat your donkey like that. You wouldn't treat an oxen like that. And this woman, 18 years, and you let her be bound up. Man, I mean, he chewed him out. Good for him. Praise God forevermore. Hallelujah. Thank You, Jesus. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
