Terry Bailey · Shared with the Public Notes on Divine Healing: (I can easily make mistakes when writing these "tiny" essays (but I love to do it), so if you spot some, please let me know)
The title "Divine Healing" can refer to several things within the religious and spiritual realm. Here, I will explore the concept of divine healing from a Christian perspective.
The concept of divine healing is based on the belief that God can heal His people's physical and spiritual ailments. This power is often seen as manifested through the laying on of hands, prayer, anointing with oil, and other blessed objects.
There are numerous examples of divine healing throughout the Bible. For example, in the Old Testament, we see instances of God healing people from leprosy (Leviticus 14:1-32), blindness (2 Kings 6:18-20), and even raising the dead (1 King 17:17-24).
In the New Testament, we see Jesus Himself healing the sick (Luke 4:40-41), the blind (Mark 8:22-26), the lame (Luke 13:11-17), and even raising the dead (Luke 7:11-15).
It is important to note that while God can perform miracles, He often uses human means to accomplish His healing purposes. For example, in the Old Testament, we see God using Moses to perform miracles such as turning water into blood (Exodus 7:19-25) and striking the Egyptians with plagues (Exodus 7:14-18).
In the New Testament, we see Jesus using His disciples to perform miracles such as healing the sick (Mark 6:13) and casting out demons (Mark 6:7-13).
While the concept of divine healing is undoubtedly Biblical, there is some debate among Christians as to whether or not it is still happening today. Some believe that the gifts of healing were only meant for the early Church and are not meant to be a part of the Church today.
However, others believe that the advantages of healing are still active in the Church today and that we should expect to see miracles happening regularly.
Whatever our personal beliefs may be, there is no doubt that the concept of divine healing is Biblical. Whether or not we see it happening in our own lives or the lives of others, we know that God is still in the business of healing His people, both physically and spiritually.
Conclusion: Since Divine Healing is without doubt Biblical, will you share, for all our Facebook Family and Friends, a miracle you have personally experienced?
