About Divine Healing

I’m sure I’ll push some buttons on this topic, but that’s okay.

You’re sick, because you have sin in your life — That’s a possibility, but it is not always the case. Jesus actually mentioned this. Some people are sick because they abuse their bodies by overwork, lousy habits, or (imagine this) old age that weakens the body.

“Rabbi, who sinned; this man or his parents that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither, this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.” Jn. 9:2b-3
For people to make a blanket statement that you’re sick because you have sin in your life is not necessarily a correct statement.

Healing glorifies God — “Great crowds came to Him, having with them those who were lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others, and placed them down at Jesus’ feet, and He healed them, so that the crowds wondered when they saw the mute speak, the maimed made whole, the lame walk, and the blind see. And they glorified the God of Israel.” Mt. 15:30-31
God wants to bless you with a long healthy life — “My son, do not forget my Law, but let your heart keep my commands. For length of days and long life, and peace they will add to you.” Proverbs 3.1-2

People do get sick and die — “And as it is appointed for men to die once, and after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9.27

You can resist sickness! Live a clean, wholesome before your God. Just being clean, wholesome, and holy lengthens life and gives you health.

“If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you” Exodus 15.26

When sick, quote Scripture — Have the elders pray over you, anointing you with oil. Find great healing verses. Quote them out loud! There are at least 100 such verses in the Bible. Read James 5.14-16

Be Healed, in Jesus’ Name!
