ETS 23: Essential Guide To The Ministry of Healing The Sick

Pinterest Google+
We can never escape this commission from Jesus. We can attempt to explain it away, disobey it, but you can’t ignore it. We’re commissioned to heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the leper and cast out demons. Jesus’ time on earth showed us the authentic Christian experience and it’s impossible to live it without walking in the supernatural power of God.

God doesn’t cause sickness:

Jesus is God and revealed God definitively and healed by the Power of the Holy Spirit
  • John 14:9
  • Matthew 12:28
  • Acts 10:38
  • Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirt and power to heal all who were oppressed of the devil
God not only has the ability but is willing to heal the sick
  • Matthew 8:2
  • Jesus tells him “I am willing”
  • Faith begins where the will of God is known. If the will of God is known to heal
  • When we don’t know or believe God is willing we add “If it’s your will” to our prayers
  • Interesting thought: We never read of anyone asking for healing AND being denied in the Gospels or Acts
Christ’s Continued Healing Ministry
The gospels described all that Jesus BEGAN to both do and teach
  • Acts of the Apostles VS Acts of the Holy Spirit
  • Philip and Stephen who aren’t apostles are described as seeing miracles
Easier to forgive sins or heal?
  • Jesus still forgives and healing is an expression of His forgiveness
  • Matthew 9:5
  • Greek Word meaning Saved, healed, made sound, made whole.
  • Romans 10:9: translated saved
  • Acts 14:9: translated healed
  • Physical and Spiritual salvation
