The Importance of Healing


Where do sickness and disease come from?

Ailments did not come until the fall of man. In other words, sickness and disease are a result of sin. But the Bible lets us know that if the children of God turn from their wicked ways, He will take away sickness from their midst (Deuteronomy 7:15).

What is the payment for our healing?

Isaiah 53:5, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes, we are healed.” It said the Lord went through 39 lashings on His back just for our healing. In those days, 40 lashings were the point where most people died, because the torture was intolerable for any person to handle. He shed His blood solely for our healing! Your healing has been paid for with the blood of Jesus! Don’t let the devil tell you otherwise!

Jesus reserves authority to heal

Jesus said to hi disciples, “Heal the sick”! Matthew 10:8, “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.”  It’s interesting how Jesus didn’t tell us to pray and ask God to heal the sick, He told us to heal the sick! Mark 16:17-18 makes it clear that all believers have the authority to lay hands on people and heal them!
