Revelation 21:3-7 and Psalm 103:2-5
3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, 4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” 5 And He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new. And He said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true." 6 Then He said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. 7 "He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.
Jesus took the stripes, bore the pain, and shed the blood on the cross to buy total healing for every believer. The work is done, the debt is paid . . . it is finished!
David the Psalmist wrote in Psalm 103:2-5 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; 3 Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; 4 Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; 5 Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
If you have ever had a disease, you were entitled to healing. Did God heal you? Maybe your answer, like mine, is “not yet, but I’m being healed!” You are now waiting in faith and expectation knowing you will be healed yet while here or on the day John describes. Look at the laundry list of redemptive corrections God will unleash along with healing:
*He’ll wipe away every tear*
*No more death*
*No mourning, crying, or pain*.
Please make time to meditate on all of this and we’ll go on next time. These words are faithful and true . . . thank you, Jesus!
