Jesus Christ is the healer. In Mark chapter five the Bible talks about a woman who was healed by Jesus after she had suffered with a disease for twelve years. She tried everything she could to try to get healed, but nothing helped. She spent a lot of money on physicians, but her condition even got worse. None of the physicians was a healer.
Jesus is the healer. In Mark 5:25-27 we are told, “And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years…came in the press behind, and touched his garment” (KJV). The day when this woman realized that Jesus was near her place, she took a step of faith to receive her healing. Her past negative experiences with the physicians could not stop her from receiving healing from Jesus. All she was determined to do was to receive her healing and that day she got it.
Healing comes from the Word of God, and Jesus Christ himself is that Word. The Bible says that the Word was with God in the beginning and it also clearly discloses that the Word is Jesus Christ. When the woman with the issue of blood knew Jesus Christ was in the neighborhood, she planned to do something about it in order to receive her healing. It is like she knew that Jesus was the Word that was sent to heal those who are sick.
Her heart got hold of what the Scripture says because in Psalms 107:20 the Bible declares, “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” (KJV). God sent his word and that word is Jesus Christ. Deep inside, the woman knew that the word of God (Jesus Christ) was sent from heaven and now it was time for her to be healed. The God who placed the immune system in our bodies really cares about us. When we are sick he wants us to be healed.
In 1 Peter 2: 24 the Bible in reference to Jesus Christ says, “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed” (KJV). Jesus took every sickness in his body and by his stripes you have access to his healing. Jesus came for your salvation and healing therefore look to him for healing and he will heal you. He is still the healer today.
