You Must Be in Position to Receive
Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his [Jesus’] own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. — HEBREWS 9:12
Because healing was purchased for us, it belongs to everyone, but not every person is in position to receive his healing. Sometimes we have to move people into position to receive what already belongs to them.
You know, sometimes we don’t have as much sense when it comes to spiritual things as we do natural things. That’s why Jesus used natural things to explain spiritual things. Sometimes people have the idea that if something belongs to them spiritually, it’s just going to automatically fall on them, even though things don’t automatically fall on us in the natural.
I want you to know that salvation belongs to the meanest person in your hometown just as much as it does to you or me. But he hasn’t accepted it, and he may not even know about it. Yet it still belongs to him! Jesus died for him just as much as He did for you. Jesus shed His blood for him and has already purchased his salvation. All he has to do is accept it. It’s already done! Jesus entered into the heavenly Holy of Holies once and for all with His blood to obtain an eternal redemption for that person.
If salvation belongs to everyone, why doesn’t it just fall on him? Well, it’s either because he doesn’t know about it or he knows about it, but hasn’t accepted what’s been provided for him. After we became Christians, did all of God’s blessings automatically fall on us? No. We had to find out what belonged to us and then receive it.
Confession: It is through the blood of Jesus that salvation has come to all men. And just as I received salvation, I now receive healing. I accept what Jesus has already provided for me!
