 "Jesus Heals the Sick"

Jesus Heals the Sick

The concept of Jesus healing the sick has always had its critics, even among well-meaning religious people. It was that way in Jesus' day, and it is that way now.

Fortunately, the answer does not lie in man's opinion but in God's Word. That is the reason we must personally read the Scriptures for ourselves.

Prayer

Jesus said:

  • "...that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;" (Luke 18:1).

The Apostle James said:

"...effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much" (James 5:16).

  • "Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord" (James 5:14).

Faith

Jesus always required the person He was healing to have faith.

When restoring the blind men, In Matthew 29:9 we are told that, Jesus touched their eyes and said:

  • "... According to your faith be it unto you."

Childlike faith is necessary to receive anything from God. Jesus could not do many miracles in His hometown because of their unbelief. (Matt 13:57-58)

Jesus Heals

God can heal in any number of ways, but His methods do not always make sense to the natural world/mind.

The examples given in the Bible on how to receive healing from God, require prayer, faith, and obedience to His Word.

In John 9:1-7, Jesus made clay out of spittle and placed it upon a blind man's eyes. He then told him to wash in the pool of shalom; he did and was healed.

What if some well-meaning individual had convinced the man that the trip to the Pool of Siloam would be a waste of time; would the blind man have been healed? I think not.

In the Old Testament, Naaman became infuriated when Elisha told him that he could be healed if he would dip seven times in the muddy Jordan River. When his servant finally convinced him to do as Elisha directed he was instantly cured, (2 Kings 5:1-15).

Naaman thought dipping in the water was foolish, even as some today consider it absurd to be anointed with oil, (James 5:14).

Doctors

The question often arises, "should we use doctors or only prayer? Above all, I believe we should always pray.

Because, Jesus said:

  • "... They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick,: (Matt 9:12).

I believe God is the ultimate healer, but that He also utilizes and blesses our amazing doctors, nurses, and medical facilities, and we should not hesitate to use them.

When doctors don't have the answer, we must remember that nothing is impossible for God.

Press Doubts and Doubters Aside

The above examples required Great Faith; a "throwing your heart over the bar type of faith" that is unwilling to accept anything other than complete healing

Just as He spoke the earth into existence, God can bring healing into your body, or situation. He loves you and does not enjoy seeing you ill any more than you enjoy seeing your child or loved one sick.

Press the doubts, and doubters, aside. For Jesus, healing your body is not difficult.

Jesus Healing the Sick


"Lets Teach Our Children to Love"

Why is it so difficult for our educators and society, in general, to understand that love and respect for one another taught from a young age can solve much of the world's hostility and social problems!

"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it" (Prov 22:6).

Love is the answer!



Loyalty and Faithfulness

True loyalty springs from the heart and is wrapped in love. It is often in our most private moments that true loyalty, or the lack of it, is made known.
