Divine Healing

Divine Healing has been a controversial issue

for many decades.

I believe that the greatest controversies have arisen in the area of results. We must never be

trapped in the arena of whether it was a lack of our faith, or a lack of faith on the part of

the sick.

How are we going to establish parameters for ministering and praying for the sick?

Divine Healing & Divine Health

Let’s establish the facts

Isaiah 53. 4,5 “ Surely he hath borne our griefs,

and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him

stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was

wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised

for our iniquities; and with his stripes we are healed.”

1 Peter 2.24 “ Who his own self bare our sins in

his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to

sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose

stripes ye were healed.”

Divine Healing & Health

Healing is divine in the sense that God has to

intervene in behalf of the finished work of

Jesus Christ.

The gospels are full of Jesus healing the sick.

We are not going to get into demonology as it pertains to oppression, possession or the

operation of Spiritual Gifts tonight. It is for

certain that both are products of Calvary and the consequent resurrection and ascension.

Matthew 20. 30-34 “ And, behold, two blind

men sitting by the way side, when they heard

that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have

mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David. And the multitude rebuked them, because they

should hold their peace: but they cried the

more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David. And Jesus stood still, and called

to them, and said, What will ye that I shall do

unto you? They say unto him, Lord, that our

Matthew 9.35,36 “ And Jesus went about all

compassion on them…”

and to my servant, Do this and he doeth it.

When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto

the people that followed him, I say unto you, I

have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

And they that were sent, returning to the

house, found the servant whole that had been

Matthew 9.20 “ And behold, a woman, which

was diseased with an issue of blood twelve

years, came behind him, and touched the hem

of his garment: For she said within herself, If I

may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.

But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw

her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.”

Catalyst: Faith

Isaiah 61, as it is written in Luke 4.18,19 “ The

Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath

anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor.

He has sent Me to proclaim release to the

captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to

set free those who are downtrodden, to

proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

We pray for and anoint the sick because it is the command of Jesus to the church.

Divine Healing and Health

We don’t characterize individuals who use

medicine and medical doctors for healing. Divine

Healing and Medical Healing are fighting the

same enemy. The curse of the fall and the satanic

desire to kill, steal and destroy lives. (John 10.10)

The Restoration of Man Romans 8.19-23 “ For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth

for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the

creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly,

but by reason of him who hath subjected the

Romans 8 (cont) “ Because the creature itself

also shall be delivered from the bondage of

corruption into the glorious liberty of the

children of God. For we know that the whole

creation groaneth and travaileth in pain

together until now. And not only they, but

ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within

ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the

redemption of our body.

It is obvious because of the division of the

soul, spirit and body, that we have lost and

will not gain in the natural some of our origin.
