a classical teaching on receiving healing from Jesus

Healing is the number one subject in today’s world. There is no family and or individual who had never been affected by sicknesses and related matters. Here is a classic resource on divine healing.

Excerpts from: The Christ Cure, by Kenneth W. Hagin

“We have the anointing or power of God. And with that power, we can take what God says in His Word, believe it, act on it, and receive it for ourselves.

And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda. And there he found a cer­tain man named Aeneas,…— Acts 9:32–35

This portion of Scripture tells the story of a helpless paralytic named Aeneas, who was healed when Peter told him, “Aeneas, Jesus Christ cures you . . .” (Acts 9:34 Weymouth). ..

Peter is telling people everywhere about Jesus Christ, the Man with whom he walked; the Man whom he saw die on the Cross for them; the Man whom he saw ascend from the Mount of Olives on a cloud of glory after telling His disciples, “…tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high” (Luke 24:49).

And now Peter has come to Lydda. ..I see Peter approach Aeneas’ sickbed, and I see Aeneas look up sadly….

“And, Aeneas, let me tell you something else: Jesus Christ now cures you! Arise and walk!”

I’m sure that Aeneas’ faith was so high at that point that he leaped out of that bed. Jesus Christ, the One he believed in, had healed him too! And the Word of God says that all of Lydda and Saron saw his healing and turned to the Lord (Acts 9:35).

Notice that the miracle of Aeneas’ healing occurred after the Day of Pentecost. That puts his healing within this present dispensation of the Holy Spirit, … As long as we’re liv­ing in the same dispensation, all of the spiritual and scriptural laws pertaining to that dispensa­tion are still in effect. Healing is still in effect for us today!

Realize the impact of the words Peter spoke to Aeneas: “Jesus Christ cures you!” Grasp in your spirit the magnitude of the power contained in those words.

The Word of God says, “…with his stripes we ARE healed” (Isa. 53:5). Since Jesus Christ has cured us by His stripes (1 Peter 2:24), we have a right to be well! Then why do some peo­ple remain sick? Why doesn’t everyone get healed? The answer can be found in Luke chapter 4.

We read here that Jesus Christ has been traveling throughout Galilee preaching and teaching, and healing all who were oppressed of the devil. The Bible says that He became well known throughout the region. Returning to His hometown of Nazareth, however, He encoun­tered only hostility and unbelief when He visited the synagogue…

Oh, what a revival they could have had that day in Nazareth! ..What a celebration they could have had! Why didn’t they receive their healing? It is very simple: They refused to believe.

I want you to notice some­thing. Peter said to Aeneas, “Jesus Christ cures you. Arise!” and Aeneas arose because Aeneas believed.

And if we today will only believe what the Word of God says with­out pulling back from it, we will receive blessing after blessing. It is when we refuse to believe that we do not receive.

Therefore, it is up to you to believe and receive from God. In His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension and seating on High, Jesus Christ already has pur­chased everything you’ll ever need. We talk about Jesus’ blood being shed for the redemption of sin. Yes, it was, but that blood also was shed to obtain our healing. Jesus Christ has healed you. It’s now time for you to arise and receive. (Boldness added)

We have the anointing or power of God. And with that power, we can take what God says in His Word, believe it,  act on it, and receive it for ourselves. That is why it is now up to you to receive whatever you want from God.

…Based on God’s Word, I can confidently say to you—whoever you are, wherever you are, and whatever your situation: “Jesus Christ cures you! Arise and receive your healing—right now!”
