The Crushing Of “The Rose Of Sharon” And Divine Healing (Believe as you read and be healed)

The scourging of the sacred body of Jesus Christ was not the work of hatred and rejection, but a divine release of supernatural grace and healing powers.

Certainly there were those involved that did hate Him and others that meant to destroy all He represented, but the total life and suffering of the Father’s “Only Begotten Son,” was God’s perfect foundation of all redemption. The powers of those stripes that mutilated that Holy Temple were infallible and supernatural.

His Blood alone redeems the soul, but His scarred and wounded Body heals the body. It’s thrilling to read the great prophecy of Isaiah and how plainly He proclaimed the authority that would be manifest in the suffering and death of the Son of God. Only the Holy Spirit could have poured such words into the “Volume of Truth,” as penned this prophet of God. The blindness that had possessed the religious crowd of Christ’s day can only be eclipsed by the blindness of our modern church world. The Spirit plainly removed the human element that our world has assigned to Christ’s sufferings. It was the Father that sacrificed His Son, and every act of His suffering and death was the plan that the Sovereign God had ordained.

Look at the Divine Words written by Isaiah. “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:3-5) His provision for physical healing can only be superseded by His provision for our eternal souls. The Holy Ghost plainly said that He was wounded and bruised for our sin, and He was scourged for our miraculous healing. Certainly He proved both great truths by His life and personal ministry to the multitudes. Then, He clearly stated in St. John, Chapter Fourteen, that we are to continue that ministry.

The scourging of Jesus Christ was a noted part of the preparation to crucify Him. The extent of their brutal treatment to Him has only lately become profound to me. In study, I learned that scourging was a form of flaying or skinning the victim. When the soldiers were scourging a person, the intent was to bring them to the point of death and then back away only to bring them to that point again and again. They were apparently more brutal with Jesus Christ because it was God’s plan to release in His Sacred Temple, possessed of Divine Blood, the ultimate powers of supernatural healing.

Again, Isaiah had prepared us to expect this prophesied Messiah to be treated far beyond the normal. These brutal men were destined to do things to humans absolutely subhuman, but when this sacred Temple stood before them, the worse of the Adamic nature became apparent. The Bible said, “As many were astonished at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men…” (Isaiah 52:14) When they had finished with their scourging He no longer appeared human. His flesh hung like rags all over His Holy Frame.

It’s impossible not to believe that the God/man in this sacred hour did not release indescribable powers into the human stream of life. This ultimate power will be seen in the glorified bodies of His saints, but a glimmer of that life and transformation is now available in His healing virtues. The Body of Jesus Christ and His Church, are the First Fruits of His Redemption, and we are supposed to represent the emerging picture of the heavenly. Every great move of God has included wonderful miracles of healing. The early church was our first example.

Immediately after Pentecost, healing of bodies and deliverance from destroying demons was a fire that testified to Christ’s Resurrection. In Acts, Chapter Three, only days or hours after the upper room outpouring, a crippled man was perfectly healed. He had never walked and was laid at the temple porch. Apostle Peter said, “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.” (Acts 3:6-8) This was the norm for the early church.

The shadow of one man then, was more powerful than entire denominations are today. “And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women. Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.” (Acts 5: 14-16) Apostle Peter was moved by the Holy Ghost to put this provision of healing in the “Volume of Truth,” the Holy Bible. “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. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.” (I Peter 2:24-25)

The Rose of Sharon has been crushed and the fragrance of salvation and healing is undiminished. It was Solomon that penned the words that identified Him as the Rose of Sharon, It was actually the Lord that spoke these words of Himself. “I am the rose of sharon, and the lily of the valleys.” (Song of Solomon 2:1) The Book of Isaiah follows immediately after Solomon’s prophesies. Isaiah states, “Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.” (Isaiah 53:10) It is done, It is finished and it is the church’s heritage. Our duty is to be His Sacred Temple where His Holy Spirit can continue this stream of grace and healing powers. I repeat the words of Jesus Christ on the cross, “It is finished.”

As you read, believe, surrender, and be miraculously healed. Please share this with every suffering believer and give the promise to the unsaved if they will yield their life to Him. I’m praying and believing that a multitude of my friends around the world will be healed as they read this truth from the Heart of God. We love praying for the sick or demon tormented souls.

  1. Dear Pastor

    Amen, even so, just finished Isaiah two days ago, these words make my heart race to know what has been done for us through the Lamb’s sacrifice. Jesus only has Glory now and such a Glory that will bring down the dominions of this world very shortly.

    By his blood and by his sacrifice we find our slavation.

    Interesting note on scourging, no wonder his visage was marred so badly; nearly skinned alive! Sometimes i almost see the crowd doing its best to hurt him, and am saddened by our nature.

    Will pass this on.

    God Bless

  2. Brother Scudder,

    Your debate is flawed. You said, “But it is not in the atonement like our salvation is or else we would never be sick.” You must have forgotten that salvation is certainly in the atonement but the multitudes are lost. The atonement is only for the man or women that surrenders and believes on Jesus Christ. If your argument was true then everyone would be saved. The atonement, salvation of the soul or healing for the body is for the person that believes and yields all to Him.
    Lots of Love!!!!!!!!

    No one believes in healing any more than I do and I know and have seen many healed and I have prayed for many that have been healed. We are to obey the scriptures and pray for healing for those that need it. But it is not in the atonement like our salvation is our else we would never be sick or die.

    “by His stripes we are healed.” This is in reference to our transgressions and sins being removed at the cross. The Bible states that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin, not healing for sickness. Revelation 1:5 “To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood.” “…the life of the flesh is in the blood…it is the blood that maketh atonement for the soul (Lev. 17:11)

    L. T. Halsey said, “ If one who believes that healing is in the atonement on the same basis as the forgiveness of sins, is anointed and prayed for and not healed, then how could they be sure their sins were forgiven ? 1 Jn.5:13 tells us we may know that we have eternal life NOW. On the same basis, we would know that we have immortal bodies now. Our diseases would be taken away just as our sins are taken away. This we know is not the case. Christ redeemed our spirit, soul and body on the cross. But the curse, though judged is still operative. Satan though judged is still at liberty. Sickness and death. Though judged, are still taking their toll. The day of full redemption has not come. We see not yet all things put under his feet (Heb.2:8) The redemption of our bodies will come when Christ comes for the church, this is our blessed hope (1 Cor. 15;51-53; Titus 2:13; 1 Thess. 4:13-18).”

    Why didn’t we receive physical healing when we first believed? The same faith we used to be saved spiritually certainly would be enough to be healed with. So, in essence if this faith is a guarantee of healing then all should be physically cured automatically when they are first saved. We have not seen any such demonstration in the history of the Church or in the Bible. The truth is some of the most spiritual people who have Christ’s fortitude are afflicted with sickness, and know Him in a way many of us will not. They are the ones who need to exercise complete faith each and every day, sometimes for the smallest of needs that we all take for granted.

    I will be surprised if the above posted will be allowed.

  3. I have to agree with Bill Scudder. I believe in Christ’s healing powers for sure however, I believe Isaiah and Peter were both talking about Christ as a way to salvation. If you keep it in context both are talking about sin and that by Christ’s death we now have a way to the Father. These versus have nothing to do with physical healing. Its about sin and Him making a way for us to get to Heaven.

  4. When we are baptized, we take Christ’s name upon us. As Christians, we seek to follow Him in all aspects of our lives. Jesus was baptized when He was on earth. He has asked us to follow His example and to be baptized ( see 2 Nephi 31:12 ). He has promised that if we follow His example and keep the promises we make when we’re baptized, we will have His Spirit to guide us through this life. Because Heavenly Father is a fair and loving God, everyone will have the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ through baptism, if not in this life then in the next.
