To believe in Jesus heals, we must know who Jesus is. Who is Jesus? What did He do while on earth? Today we read and meditate some Bible verses from Luke chapter 1-7, focusing more on the healing and miracles He did, as an introduction to new comers and as a revision to those who are believers. We see that Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit, the Son of God, the Messiah, and has all authority over giving life, forgiving sins, healing all diseases, casting out all demons. He commanded even things like fever (symptoms), spiritual beings (spirits that caused sicknesses and infirmities), natural phenomena (fishes swimming to the net which had been empty whole night), life returning to the dead boy (son of a widow at a funeral). He is willing to heal all. He is not bound by distance, space and time. He is not bound by human religious traditional belief and practices. He is Lord overall.
Where is Jesus today? Seated at the place of honor at the right hand of God. (Luke 22:69; Ephesians 1:20) He lives forever to intercede with God, saving those who come to God through Him. (Hebrews 7:25)

Luke 4:18-21, 43 New Living Translation (NLT)

40 As the sun went down that evening, people throughout the village brought sick family members to Jesus. No matter what their diseases were, the touch of his hand healed every one. 41 Many were possessed by demons; and the demons came out at his command, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But because they knew he was the Messiah, he rebuked them and refused to let them speak.
Luke 5:4-6 4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish.”
5 “Master,” Simon replied, “we worked hard all last night and didn’t catch a thing. But if you say so, I’ll let the nets down again.” 6 And this time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear!
Luke 5:12-13 Jesus Heals a Man with Leprosy
12 In one of the villages, Jesus met a man with an advanced case of leprosy. When the man saw Jesus, he bowed with his face to the ground, begging to be healed. “Lord,” he said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.”
13 Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared.
Luke 5:18,20,24 18 Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a sleeping mat. They tried to take him inside to Jesus,
20 Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the man, “Young man, your sins are forgiven.”

Luke 6:5,10,17-18 5 And Jesus added, “The Son of Man[a] is Lord, even over the Sabbath.”
10 He looked around at them one by one and then said to the man, “Hold out your hand.” So the man held out his hand, and it was restored!
Crowds Follow Jesus
17 When they came down from the mountain, the disciples stood with Jesus on a large, level area, surrounded by many of his followers and by the crowds. There were people from all over Judea and from Jerusalem and from as far north as the seacoasts of Tyre and Sidon.
18 They had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and those troubled by evil[a] spirits were healed. 19 Everyone tried to touch him, because healing power went out from him, and he healed everyone.
Luke 7:7,9-19 7 I am not even worthy to come and meet you. Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed.
9 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to the crowd that was following him, he said, “I tell you, I haven’t seen faith like this in all Israel!” 10 And when the officer’s friends returned to his house, they found the slave completely healed.
Luke 7:12-15 12 A funeral procession was coming out as he approached the village gate. The young man who had died was a widow’s only son, and a large crowd from the village was with her. 13 When the Lord saw her, his heart overflowed with compassion. “Don’t cry!” he said. 14 Then he walked over to the coffin and touched it, and the bearers stopped. “Young man,” he said, “I tell you, get up.” 15 Then the dead boy sat up and began to talk! And Jesus gave him back to his mother.
But from now on the Son of Man will be seated in the place of power at God’s right hand.”
