For many years this blogger has heard of divine healing and healed testimonies of various diseases from many different people in developed and developing nations. There seems no difference between people from all national backgrounds and walks of lives when it comes to healing by Jesus and His power in Holy Spirit filled believers using His name. What Jesus has said to His disciples about what those who believe in Him can do, in Mark 16:15-20, has come into physical reality, and many people get healed just by believing what Jesus has said.
As reported in this blog previously some of us have also practiced and experienced divine healing in our daily lives. We have read many books and testimonies and received both Biblical teaching and practical hands on training on divine healing. We have personally encountered healing and also witnessed others healed by our praying over them. We are encouraged by healed testimonies of those whom we prayed over. But we are not discouraged by not receiving testimonies from others.
A fortnight ago an evangelist/Bible teacher in our midst was invited to teach divine healing to a small group and someone brought a couple to her for prayers. The wife was instantly healed of pain which she had suffered for over weeks. The evangelist/Bible teacher went home and was led by the Spirit to invite the couple to come to see her a second time. So they came and she taught them the Bible verses about divine healing. She also prayed over the man who had cancer and had doctors’ report (death sentence) that he had to have lifelong chemotherapy until he dies. But the man had reached a point that he just couldn’t continue with the chemotherapy. The following day he went for a medical check up and the medical report had turned out to confirm that there is now no trace of cancer in him! The couple went home rejoicing and praising God.
It is always very encouraging to hear this. We pray that our readers are encouraged to read and believe in the Bible verses about healing and the healed testimonies of many. How did the couple receive their healing? By faith. They just believed and received with gladness.
Tonight I am led to read again a case of healing by Jesus: Luke 7:1-10 a Roman centurion’s dying servant was healed by Jesus because of the centurion’s faith in Jesus’ word. “But say the word and my servant will be healed.” He believed in the supreme authority of Jesus over sicknesses.
Today we are doing the same as Jesus has commanded His believers. We let the Lord (Holy Spirit) fill and lead us, use Jesus’ name, His word and authority to command sicknesses to depart. And we have witnessed many healed testimonies. I believe the latest healed testimony is a breakthrough in faith in action. Faith on the part of the healer and the patients as well.
I am reminded of another passage from the Bible of what Jesus said to His disciples in John 15 that he is the vine and we are the branches and unless we abide in Him we cannot do anything. This is a command for anyone who practices divine healing. Meditate on His words and let Jesus speak to you too. The evangelist/Bible teacher and the couple who came for help have held fast to John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” Indeed, Jesus’ words came to pass.
The motivating force must be love. Only the love of Christ can compel a believer to want to give his or her life to serve in the divine healing ministry. John 15:9-13. Jesus has set the example and blazed the trail. This is the difference between those who continue to bear fruit and those who no longer bear fruit. A heart that is after God’s heart bears good fruit.
Belief in Jesus name is most important for healing. I have overcome my unbelief and seen supernatural results.
Don’t explain away the healed assurance even when we don’t see immediate effect. Hold fast like a bull dog. Just continue believing. Then the results will always manifest. Because it’s supernatural. God is supernatural.
