To be whole

To be whole

Whole [hohl]

  1. Containing all the proper elements which are to belong; complete
  2. Not broken, damaged, or impaired; intact
  3. Uninjured or unharmed

When Jesus encountered a person, who wanted something from Him he left them whole.

  • The Canaanite mother’s daughter (Matthew 15:22-28)
  • Those who were laid in the street and those who touched His garment (Mark 6:53-56)
  • The man with the withered hand (Luke 6:6-11)
  • The woman with the issue of blood (Matthew 9:20-22)
  • The man on his bed (John 5:1-15)
  • The blind man (Mark 10:46-52)

Each encountered there was a natural proof of a spiritual work.  Because the world cannot see in the spirit, the proof that God has made one whole shows in the natural.  Wherever something was not whole in your physical body, it becomes whole when you become whole from the inside.  You being made whole outwardly is proof of your inward change; your fruit.

For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. (Luke 6:43-44)

Being whole looks like good fruit.  We are known by what comes from us.  Corrupt fruit is wicked fruit it is sinful when we are not whole, therefore we have corrupt fruit.  If God is the seed, then we will bear of Him (1 John 3:9) we will bear proof of Him in us. 

Do you look whole?

When afflictions (sickness) remains in your mortal body, you do not look whole.  Who would want to serve a god where sickness remains?  When you have the “cure all” every disease is eradicated.  Jesus is the “cure all”.   Whole looks like receiving the physician.  Jesus said they that are whole have no need of a physician.  It is easy and more pleasing to think that even when we have afflictions we are in God.  It has become common place to have afflictions and still be considered whole.  According to the word we find that afflictions are sin.  Jesus told the man who was made whole to go and sin no more unless a worse thing come upon him. (John 5:14) He was commanded to remain whole.  He was told to continue in being uninjured.  Even the woman who was caught in adultery was told to go and sin no more. (John 8:11) Being whole is a vital to the believer to be a replicable witness for God.

Food for thought:  He is not a halfhearted God.  Therefore, why would He start a work in you and not finish it?
