SPIRITUAL HEALING VS. PHYSICAL HEALING
Part 10: The Knowledge To See God & Spiritual Healing Comes From God (I Corinthians 2:9)
Peace be unto you. We are grateful that our Father God has blessed us with a Savior in Christ Jesus and for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Father we are also eternally grateful for the calling to work in your service. The hand upon us is much loved as we need you Lord every step of the way.

Brethren God wants us to be Spiritually Healed. However healing comes with Christian responsibility. Will we be responsible to God or man? Can we be responsible to both God and man?
I Corinthians 2:9: “But as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”
Regardless of the perversion of this verse the eye, ear and heart of man means the natural senses of the human being. No one (intellectuals etc.) trained at the best schools could discover through mere human faculties what the Lord has for the faithful. The Spirit would provide the power to see these things and the Spirit comes from God.
Now follow us back to the Old Testament and the Book of Isaiah.
Isaiah 64:4: “For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waieteth for him”. (Also see Psalms 31:19).
At this place the prophet Isaiah reveals that man is not able by his natural senses to discover the spiritual things that God has for those that wait and rely on Him. Therefore it is necessary for a supernatural means to be used to reveal the information. Again we see the necessity of the Spirit to see God. Now turn over to the next Chapter we will begin at verse 17. In this verse and the remaining verses Isaiah talks about the kingdom of Christ.
Isaiah 65:17: “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind”. (When we come to know Christ we become a new creature see II Corinthians 5:17).
The Jewish Law was no longer in force this is what is meant by “nor come into mind”. Also see Romans 10: 4 Christ is now here. In Galatians 5: 1-4 we find that we are free from the Old Law as the Old Law was the yoke of bondage.
With the yoke of the law removed we can now receive healing through the heart. However the Spirit opens the heart if it is allowed.
