Christ Our Healer (Part 7)
Acts 10:38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. NKJV
In light of all that is revealed in the Scriptures, it is not to be thought unreasonable that the Lord should heal the physical afflictions of those who seek His aid. Based on the Word of God and what it reveals about God’s will, His purpose and His power, it is wholly reasonable to believe that God is interested in the physical, human bodies of those who are His children through the New Birth. It is not necessary for a Christian to try to persuade God to take an interest in his physical needs. The promises of God and the revelations of His concern for man’s physical needs have always far outstripped man’s faith to receive them. (Foundations of Pentecostal Theology By Guy P. Dufield / N.M. Van Cleave)
In this series of teachings, we are going to look into the Scriptures on the subject of divine healing. There are many opinions about God’s will to heal, but our experiences and others opinions are not what we build our life on, we build our lives on the Words of God. We will be discussing many things including the origin of sickness, faith, and Paul’s thorn. This series will be a great help no matter where you find yourself in the understanding of divine healing.
Part 7 – In this message, we are beginning the process of going through the instances of healing in the New Testament. First, we go to the gospels knowing that Jesus is the expression of the Father’s will (John 6:35 and John 14:10). Two passages are addressed in this message:
- The Nobleman’s Son – John 4:46-54
- The Deaf and Dumb Man – Mark 7:3-37
