Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. – 3 Jn 1:2
Healing and salvation happened on the same day! Jesus made provision for divine healing in the atonement. If God still saves, then God still heals!
There are many Christians who claim that Jesus no longer heals. Yet John prays that Gaius would have prosperous physical and spiritual health. He would not have prayed for physical health, if perfect physical health were not God’s will!
We see here that health and salvation (a prosperous soul) are inextricably linked. God will cause your body to prosper, just as He causes your soul to prosper. Please do not believe the lie that Jesus is done healing because He is in Heaven. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb 13:8)! If He healed then, He heals now!
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. – Is 53:5
Father, You are Jehova Rapha: the God Who Heals. Healing is not just something You do; Healing is who You are! Thank You that Your desire to heal has never changed, and will never change, in Jesus’ name!
