"If it were not for this thing you call sin-consciousness, I would have faith. If I had faith, I would have my healing. But the Word does not seem real to me. I read it, and I say, 'By His stripes I am healed' and yet in my mind I hear another voice saying, 'But the pain is still there.' I find that I am giving two testimonies continually, one with my lips and another with my intellect."
We should fully understand this: no matter what one's standing is in heaven, if he has no faith in it, it does him no good.
No matter what a man's privileges are, if the hand of faith is paralyzed he cannot take hold of them.
As long as he is ruled by sin-consciousness, he has no sense of Redemption. He is under condemnation. Satan rules him.
As long as Satan rules, faith will be shriveled and undeveloped.
All through the Pauline Revelation, from Romans through Hebrews, a complete Redemption is taught.
There is a perfect Redemption. Satan is conquered. Hebrews 2:14, "Since then the children are sharers in flesh and blood, he also himself in like manner partook of the same; that through death he might bring to nought him that had the authority of death, that is, the devil." He is stripped of his authority.
Revelation 1:18, Jesus triumphantly says, "I am He that was dead, and behold I am alive forevermore; and I have the keys of death and hades."
Satan was put to nought; his ability was paralyzed. Colossians 2:15, "He put off from himself the principalities and powers, and made a show of them, openly triumphing over them in it" (marginal rendering RV).
