The Process of Getting Healed By Pastor Bill McCombes
Recognize what sin does to your soul. Sin originates from the original sin, generational sins, sins perpetrated against us and sins that we do ourselves.
The blood of Jesus, shed on the cross, eradicates, covers and takes care of our sin. “What can wash away my sin, nothing but the blood of Jesus.” This includes applying the blood of Jesus to our sin, repenting, asking forgiveness, and remitting sins. We must forgive others, ourselves and when appropriate God.
The result of sin is wounds in our soul. If these wounds are not ‘healed’ we operate out of a broken and wounded soul. The wounds are healed by the ‘glory light’ of Jesus. In His light. In His life. By His love. In His presence. By bringing truth into the lies and deceptions of these wounds, they are healed.
Wounds in our soul give place for the enemy [the devil] and opens the door for the demonic. They are a curse. See Proverbs 26:2.
Once the blood takes care of the sin, and the light and truth of Jesus takes care of the wounds, we can command the demonic to leave our soul. There will be no legal right for them to remain and they are easily dealt with.
When we achieve this for the various wounds in our soul we can begin to operate out of our new nature, our God-given nature.
We then renew our mind and continue to restore our soul to the place of total agreement with what God has for us. This includes breaking old thought patterns and habit patterns which include: emotional, mental and physical habits.
Without taking care of the sin and wounds in our soul, it is virtually impossible to live a godly life, without using extreme self discipline. [Which usually only works short term.]
Once we have worked through the process of forgiveness of our sins, the healing of our soul, and the removing of the demonic out of our life, we can walk a godly life. The things that were temptations to us before no longer tempt us. Our outward behavior becomes ‘godly.’
We become new creatures in Christ and old things are passed away.
You must focus on the steps and take each step in the process.
It is important to realize that it is not just the cross. The cross and the shed blood take care of our sin. It is also the resurrection. The resurrection life of Jesus. The light of Jesus. He is the bright morning star. He is the light of the world. His light will come and bring healing to your soul.
