3. Claim His complete healing and forgiveness – Scripture tells us “without faith it is impossible to please (God)” (Hebrews 11:6). And therefore, we must, by faith, believe that when Jesus died on the cross, He was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities and by His stripes (wounds) we are healed (Isaiah 53:4-5). I love the fact that those prophetic verses from Isaiah 53 about what Jesus would do for us when He went to the cross centuries later were written in past tense, although they were still future at the time the prophecy was written. That tells me that even before it happened, God saw our atonement as already done. And now that Jesus has been to the grave and back to pay the penalty for our sins, how much more is it already done? Why hold onto something when, as Jesus said, “it is finished” (John 19:30).
