Decree to Establish

24 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. ~ 1 Peter 2:24

Isaiah is prophesying about a future event, but he speaks in the present and claims it for himself: “with His stripes, we ARE healed.” Isaiah said it is done. We are, not we might, or will be, but we are healed.

Peter comes along and proclaims: “by whose stripes ye were healed.” Peter speaks in the past tense. In other words, he is saying it is already done. It is finished. He has now declared and decreed a thing in his proclamation of God’s word: “You have been healed.”

And what does God’s word say about decreeing a thing?

28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee.

Job 22:28

In other words, if you decide on a matter, by rightly dividing the Word of Truth, “By His wounds, I am healed.” The thing you decreed will be established for you. There is nothing too difficult for God to do. Therefore, all things are possible for him or her who believes. You just have to believe.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Decree to Establish.
