Jesus The Balm of Gilead
Upon studying the Word of God this week, the Lord laid it on my heart to teach about the healing, saving, yoke destroying power of God! God spoke one phrase to my spirit “Jesus is the Balm of Gilead”. Now to be honest, I had heard this taught some years ago, but I really wasn’t totally familiar with the subject. In the book of the prophet Jeremiah chapter 8 and verse 22 the prophet declares: “Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?” So clearly, we can see that this is referring to the sin of the people of Israel. And obviously this is a type and foreshadowing of the role of Jesus Christ as the “balm” or healing ointment to heal the world of sin!
From this the lord began to show me a powerful revelation about healing. You see, when making the so called “balm of Gilead”, they have to bruise the leaf to draw out the ointment. By this we can see the parallel of the Lord Jesus Christ and His sufferings. The prophet Isaiah declares in chapter 53 and verse 5 “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” The sufferings of our Lord and Savior not only paid the price for our healing but gave us a clue to the process of divine healing. God in the Spirit offered up his own flesh to be bruised to draw out the healing power through the Lord Jesus Christ! By this, we can see a powerful truth. Jesus is our balm of Gilead!
Right now, today seated at the right hand of the Father, Jesus makes intercession for us. On our behalf, the Lord gives us the very virtue of God for healing, deliverance, and freedom from the wages of sin. When sickness comes knocking on your door, we have a healing ointment! When depression and anxiety come to weigh you down, we have the healing balm to soothe the sin sick soul! We have a remedy! And His name is Jesus! The scripture says, “He was bruised for our iniquities”, all sickness comes from sin. I’ve taught this before, and people just look at me like what? Yes, all sickness and disease comes from sin! It is the result of sin, and it comes by sin! The ointment heals the sin! Listen carefully this is a powerful revelation.
His stripes paid for our healing (By His stripes we are healed), but the ointment actually heals the sin that produces the sickness! While you are focused on the healing, God is focused on what’s causing the sickness. The thing about ointment is, it gets down to the cause! He took the bruising to release the healing balm that will heal everything! It heals heart ache, depression, sickness, disease, infirmity, bondages, and any other chain that holds you captive! Even though he paid for your healing with the stripes, the stripes represent what the bruising started. The balm ointment has to be mixed! Jesus was mixed for you and me! He was mixed to produce what he contains! And what He contains is the power of God to save! The power of God to Heal! And the power of God to totally set you free!
Jesus did not merely pay for our healing, He produced it! In other words, He is the healing! He is the ointment! He is the Balm! He is the way out of no way! He is the answer to life’s ultimate problem! He is the answer for sin and depravity! He is the healer of the nations! He is the gift of God laid out for the world to partake! He is the lily of the valley! He is the bright and morning star! He is the rose of Sharon! He is like a tender plant according to Isaiah! He is a root out of the dry ground! Jesus is the Healer!
Right now, you may be sitting there reading this wondering is God ever going to heal my body? You may be thinking to yourself will this work for me? Will God bring me out of my problem? Well the answer is quite simple, Yes, He will! Today can be the day when all your sickness is healed! You see the most powerful revelation I’ve ever known about healing and miracles I’m going to share with you now. The key to tapping into the power of God and releasing your faith is this, you must let God heal you! As simple as it sounds, this is the key. Everything I do in my ministry is to get people to the point where they let God do it! Friend this may sound easy, but it is the hardest thing you will ever do in your life! Sadly, people go entire lifetimes and never can simply let go and let God!
Letting God do it, is really what having faith is all about! The purpose for the analogy of having faith in the scripture is to get you to the point where you totally let go and let God. Most people today hit a roadblock with miracles and healing when it comes to the point of totally trusting God to do what He said he would do. Jesus refers to this as doubt and unbelief in the scripture. Take for example the scenario when Jesus and His disciples were on the boat during the tempest. The disciples are afraid and believe they are going to die. Jesus rebukes their unbelief because they had more faith in ability of the storm than they did in the ability of God to protect them during it! This is a prime example of them not letting God do His job! Today you must let God do what He said! This is why people struggle with giving and sowing seed into the ministry. They would rather believe that everybody is fake, or they just want your money, rather then believe God can prosper them! Then they come up with excuses why they can’t give, and then whine and complain about how they’re not experiencing increase and blessing!
Jesus already made a way for you way back on that old, rugged cross! All you have to do is receive it by faith today! You are closer to a breakthrough than you think! On the other side of this circumstance is a life full of peace, love, happiness, and all the joy that God can bring into your destiny! God bless you! Have faith in God! And always remember to let God do it! Jesus is the Balm of Gilead! Be blessed!

It’s referring to the work or ministry of the work of the Lord.
