  **Thought* There are many views on healing held by different bodies of 


 *Memorise*: PS. 107:20 “He sent out his word and healed them;

he rescued them from the grave.”

First, there are those who believe that healing is a part of the plan of Redemption: that Christ did bear our diseases along with our sins during His substitutional sacrifice.

Another school holds that God heals 

by a special act of grace. This group also holds that only those who have 

faith are healed. 

Another group still holds that disease comes as a judgement from the Lord for disciplinary purposes, and if that discipline has not wrought the desired effect, of course God could not give them 

faith for their healing. That makes God author of disease. 

One group also holds that Divine healing stopped with the disciples of Christ and 

that no one is endowed with such a healing power anymore.

Hebrews 9:26 puts it that Jesus was made manifest to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. This, not only means sin in the spirit and soul but sin in the flesh. Romans 8:2-3 uses sin in the sense of breaking harmony in the flesh. That is disease. They also hold Isaiah 53:3-5. He 

was despised and rejected of men, a man of sickness and acquainted with diseases. Read it all. Then the tenth verse: “Yet it pleased Jehovah to bruise him; he hath made him sick. Verse 11 “He shall see the travail of his soul and shall be satisfied”. From these two scripture we see that 

healing of the body comes before the dealing with the sin problem. Then 

we can confidently believe that the problem of sin and disease cannot be 

separated. For there was no disease until sin came, and sin is breaking of a law. The view held by the second and third group, to me is unthinkable. It is a sense knowledge effort to explain the reason why prayer is not answered and why the sick do not get their deliverance. 

Psalm 107:20; and take it along with John 1:1-3. The fourteenth verse, “And the word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and 


John 4:31-34 and John 5:30 show Jesus healing the sick as the will of the Father is being accomplished. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb. 13:8).

There is no change in the will of the 

Father. If it was His will to heal the sick while Jesus was here, it is His will to heal today. Jesus didn't heal to prove His Deity. He healed the sick because He was love, as love drives the man and woman in 

fellowship with the Father, to carry out His will here on earth, to heal the 

sick today.

James 5:14 “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.”  *Is there any sick among you?* The implication here is that there should be no sick among us. Why? If you are a child of God and are 

walking in the light of the Word, you know that by His stripes you were healed
