The Truth about Divine Healing.
*Is God Able to Heal?
Yes, He is Almighty God, He can do anything
*Is God Willing to Heal?
Yes, God is more than just Able, He is Willing, He is the Author and giver of Life Not sickness, a Loving Father. John 10:10
In the Old covenant, God put sickness on people who didnt' keep the law as an curse for their disobedience, under the New Covenant, Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the Law so that we are blessed and healed by faith. Galatians 3:10-14, Deut 28:1-2, 15-24, Hebrews 8:7-13; Roms 6:14; 7:1-6. We are living under the New Covenant now, the Covenant of Grace and a new dispensation. The Old covenant was faulty so God created a new one to relate to us.
Eph 2:8, saved is "Sozo" in the greek, inclusive of healing not just being saved from sin.
Notice the words used in these Scriptures- "All", "Everyone", "Every".
Matt 4:23; 8:1-3,16-17; 12:15; 14:14,36; Luke 9:11, Acts 10:38, 3John 1:2, Isaiah 53:4-5, 1Peter 2:24, Romans 8:2, Mark 16:17-18, John 10:10, Exodus 23:25-26, 15:26
*Why is it important to know that God is Willing not just Able?
What you believe in your heart, determines how you live.
*Did Jesus ever reject anyone who came to Him for healing?
There is no record of anyone being rejected, infact, Jesus welcomes all who come to Him
*Then why are some believers are still sick even after prayer?
-they need to build their faith and renew their minds with God's Word, this maybe a process or period of time.
-they don't believe deep down in their hearts, that God wants to heal them. Mark 5:34.. According to their faith, so shall it be.
*Is healing a free Gift, or is it earned?
-Is salvation a free gift, or did you have to earn it? Just as salvation is a free gift not of works, so healing is a free gift. In the society we live in today, is so hard to understand what “free/Gift” means when there is so much strings attatched to every gift people give or do for us.
*Why is it, sometimes it seems its easier for an unbeliever to get healed rather than a believer?
James 4:6. Some believers think they have to earn, be good enough for God to heal them through their self-righteous instead of realising healing is a gift from God. This self-righteous is the very thing that can stop them from receiving from God and getting healed, because God resists the proud, gives grace to the humble. But the unbeliever already knows that they are not good enough to earn anything from God, so that healing has to come as an gift.
*Did Jesus ever made anyone earn their healing?
Jesus healed people simply because He is Adonai Rapha, The Lord is the Healer, simply because of Who He was.
Exodus 15:26....for I, the Lord, am your healer.”
