“Unless you eat my Body and drink my Blood, you shall not have life within you.” John
Yes, that revelation of the blood of Jesus is that we are healed SPIRITUALLY when we place our faith in Jesus Christ. We have been redeemed by his blood which was shed for the propitiation of our sins.
For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul. (Leviticus 17:11)
We can place our complete faith in the truth that, though it is not always God's will for us to be physically healed, our spiritual healing is already complete and we are assured:
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:4-7)
The blood is not for healing.
The stripes are for healing.
The blood is for atonement and forgiveness of sins. Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins.
