We cannot become the righteousness of God by our good works–only by the redemptive work of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. As our Redeemer, He paid the price with His blood so that we can activate His sózó power in our lives and, yes, be delivered from eternal damnation, but also that we could be healed in spirit, in soul, and in body.
Oftentimes, people struggle with supernatural healing because of their past. Whether they were the culprit or the victim, they do not believe they are good enough to receive God’s blessings, including healing. Yes, if we were to stand upon our own righteousness, we would bever be good enough to receive His gifts. Thankfully it is not our good deeds that we stand upon to receive healing, but upon the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 53:4-5 paints a clear picture of what Jesus suffered so that we can take upon His righteousness. His blood covers all sin that we have committed or has been done against us. We do need to activate the power of His blood by asking Him to forgive us or to forgive those who have wronged us. Then we are clean and free from guilt and shame.
If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just [true to His own nature and promises], and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose] (1 John 1:9 AMP).
Because of what Jesus suffered for us, we can freely put on the breastplate of His righteousness (see Eph. 6:14) and rely on His good works and not upon ours to believe and receive His healing touch.
