This is Faith’s Testimony against the Testimony of the Senses and Reason.

Reason says, “The pain is still there.”

The Senses make Reason’s Testimony a duet.

Faith refuses to acknowledge feeling or sight of the eyes.

It stands squarely upon what God has spoken.

His Word says, “Surely He has borne our sickness,” and if God says that He bore our sickness, it is true, for that Word
is a part of God, and every Word that God has spoken is a part of Himself.

We can say confidently that what God says IS.

The same Scripture declares that, “By His stripes we are healed.”

That was spoken seven hundred years before our diseases were laid upon Christ.

It is now two-thousand years since that was fulfilled on Calvary.

Our diseases and sicknesses, our sins and infirmities were all borne by the Master: so, if He bore them, it is wrong for
us to bear them – because by our bearing them we nullify what He did!

We stand squarely upon the Living Word of God.

We refuse to listen to any other voice.

Mark 16:18, “They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

Then, when I lay hands on the sick, God says they shall recover!

The Word is Authoritative as any that ever fell from the lips of the Master.

Faith declares that it is done.

The moment that our hands are laid upon that sick one, Faith says, “Thank Thee Father, I am Healed.”

By His stripes I am set free from that old disease.

Faith always speaks before God acts.

Faith’s speaking causes God’s action.

Faith says, “God has declared I am Healed, and whatever God declares, IS.”

When God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of Heaven” the lights became and when God says, “by His stripes
you are healed,” it becomes a fact because no Word from God is void of power.

Romans 8:11, “But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead shall quicken also your mortal bodies through
His Spirit that dwelleth in you.”

This is God talking about our bodies, that are to respond to His Word.

These bodies are His home, the place where He is enthroned and reigns as a King.

This Living God who has said, “By His stripes ye are healed,” is here in our bodies to make good that Living Word.
