How to be healed in unity

In Isaiah 53:5, we read, “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.”

As Christians, we usually understand Isaiah 53:5 to mean: If I believe Jesus died for me, then His wounds on the cross will heal me.

The Hebrew word used for wounds can also translate as fellowship and unity. So we can just as well read Isaiah 53:5 as: Being one and united with Him we are healed. So let me ask you this; are you one with Jesus?

Of course, you are, if you are a Christian. After all, you are a spirit-filled baptized tongue talking Christian. On the other hand, the Bible does not say we are one with Christ by being spirit-filled speaking with other tongues; instead, it says we are one with Him when we imitate His life.

Do you imitate His life?

If we are going to imitate the life of Christ, then we have to do everything He did. He raised the dead, He healed the sick, but His passion was to do the will of His Father Yehovah. What is the will of His Father Yehovah? To keep the law of Moses, so if we are to imitate the life of Christ, we have to keep the law of Moses.

Do you keep the law of Moses?

If the answer is no, then the Bible says you are not in unity with Christ. If you are not united with Him, then you can’t be healed.

Do you need healing today?

To be healed, you need to repent from lawlessness to law and start obeying the law of Moses.
