"How can we be whole 

when the world is damned 

and rotting before our eyes?"

-- Leonard Ravenhill

Do you feel "broken"?

Or are you "falling apart"?

How can you be made whole?

Who can make us whole?

As born again, I turn to Scripture:

Psalm 36:8-9

King James Version

8 They shall be abundantly satisfied 

with the fatness of thy house; 

and thou shalt make them drink 

of the river of thy pleasures.

9 For with thee is the fountain of life: 

in thy light shall we see light.

Psalm 130:5

King James Version

5 I wait for the Lord, 

my soul doth wait, 

and in his word do I hope.

Isaiah 53:4-11

King James Version

4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, 

and carried our sorrows: 

yet we did esteem him stricken, 

smitten of God, and afflicted.

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.

6 All we like sheep have gone astray; 

we have turned every one to his own way; 

and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

7 He was oppressed, 

and he was afflicted, 

yet he opened not his mouth: 

he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, 

and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, 

so he openeth not his mouth.

8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: 

and who shall declare his generation? 

for he was cut off out of the land of the living: 

for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

9 And he made his grave with the wicked,

and with the rich in his death; 

because he had done no violence, 

neither was any deceit in his mouth.

10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; 

he hath put him to grief: 

when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, 

he shall see his seed, 

he shall prolong his days, 

and the pleasure of the Lord

shall prosper in his hand.

11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, 

and shall be satisfied: 

by his knowledge 

shall my righteous servant justify many; 

for he shall bear their iniquities.

Mark 10:46-52

King James Version

46 And they came to Jericho: 

and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples 

and a great number of people, 

blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, 

sat by the highway side begging.

47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, 

he began to cry out, and say, 


thou son of David, 

have mercy on me.

48 And many charged him 

that he should hold his peace: 

but he cried the more a great deal, 

Thou son of David, 

have mercy on me.

49 And Jesus stood still, 

and commanded him to be called. 

And they call the blind man, saying unto him, 

Be of good comfort,

rise; he calleth thee.

50 And he, casting away his garment, 

rose, and came to Jesus.

51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, 

What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? 

The blind man said unto him, 


that I might receive my sight.

52 And Jesus said unto him, 

Go thy way; 

thy faith hath made thee whole. 

And immediately he received his sight, 

and followed Jesus in the way.

Luke 8:43-48

King James Version

43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, 

which had spent all her living upon physicians, 

neither could be healed of any,

44 Came behind him, 

and touched the border of his garment: 

and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

45 And Jesus said, 

Who touched me? 

When all denied, 

Peter and they that were with him said, 


the multitude throng thee and press thee, 

and sayest thou, Who touched me?

46 And Jesus said, 

Somebody hath touched me: 

for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, 

she came trembling, 

and falling down before him, 

she declared unto him before all the people 

for what cause she had touched him, 

and how she was healed immediately.

48 And he said unto her, 


be of good comfort: 

thy faith hath made thee whole; 

go in peace.

Luke 8:49-50

King James Version

49 While he yet spake, 

there cometh one 

from the ruler of the synagogue's house, 

saying to him, 

Thy daughter is dead; 

trouble not the Master.

50 But when Jesus heard it, 

he answered him, saying, 

Fear not: 

believe only, 

and she shall be made whole.

John 5:1-9

King James Version

5 After this there was a feast of the Jews; 

and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2 Now there is at Jerusalem 

by the sheep market a pool, 

which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, 

having five porches.

3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk,

of blind, halt, withered, 

waiting for the moving of the water.

4 For an angel went down at a certain season 

into the pool, 

and troubled the water: 

whosoever then first 

after the troubling of the water 

stepped in was made whole 

of whatsoever disease he had.

5 And a certain man was there, 

which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

6 When Jesus saw him lie, 

and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, 

he saith unto him, 

Wilt thou be made whole?

7 The impotent man answered him, 

Sir, I have no man, 

when the water is troubled, 

to put me into the pool: 

but while I am coming, 

another steppeth down before me.

8 Jesus saith unto him, 


take up thy bed, 

and walk.

9 And immediately the man was made whole, 

and took up his bed, and walked: 

and on the same day was the sabbath.

John 5:14-16

King James Version

14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, 

and said unto him, 

Behold, thou art made whole: 

sin no more, 

lest a worse thing come unto thee.

15 The man departed, 

and told the Jews that it was Jesus, 

which had made him whole.

16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, 

and sought to slay him, 

because he had done these things 

on the sabbath day.

Colossians 2:8-10

King James Version

8 Beware lest any man spoil you 

through philosophy and vain deceit, 

after the tradition of men, 

after the rudiments of the world, 

and not after Christ.

9 For in him dwelleth 

all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

10 And ye are complete in him, 

which is the head of all principality and power:

JESUS is our source of perfect healing, and wholeness.

For the fullness of GOD resides in the SON.

Believing in JESUS makes us whole.
