Spiritual Stuff

A reader asked this question.

Do the things we ask God for like healing and wholeness already exist in the spiritual realms?
My answer is as follows.

I know some people have seen visions of storerooms containing new body parts, etc. I think that those visions are just symbolic.

However, we must understand that those who trust in Jesus were raised up with him in the spiritual realms. From a spiritual perspective, they are already seated with him at the right hand of the father.

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 (Eph 2:4-6).
Therefore, we are already seated with Jesus in the spiritual realms. The important thing is that there are no sicknesses or disease present in us where we are with Jesus in the spiritual realms.

Jesus death dealt with our sin. The lacerations of his body dealt with our sicknesses, so they are not with us where we are seated with Jesus. That means that any sicknesses that exist in our bodies on earth are trespassers. They have no legal right to be there.

The challenge is to bring what is reality into the spiritual realms into being in this physical world.
