Divine Healing (without medication)
Healing without medicine is Biblical – Matthew 4:23; Psalm 103:3; Sickness is caused because of the fall of man. The force behind this is Satan – Job 2:1-9; Luke 13:15; Acts 10:38. But JESUS came to destroy the works of the devil – I John 3:8. Christ purchased our soul from the curse of sin. He bore our infirmities and carried our sorrow – Matthew 8:15-17. By His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:4-5; Galatians 3:13; I Peter 2:24. Healing without medicine is of the Gospel – Matthew 9:35; Mark 6:10-18. We read that the twelve Apostles and the seventy disciples combined healing with their Ministry of the Gospel – Luke 9:1-2; Luke 10:1-9. The Lord commanded us to go into the world, not just to teach the nations alone, but that we should also heal the sick – Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 10:1, Mark 16:15-18.We could obtain our healing in these four ways:
1. By individual prayer – John 14:13-14
2. By two people (or a group of people) who have agreed to pray by faith – Matthew 18:19-20.
3. By the laying of hands on the head – Mark 16:18; Acts 9:18; Acts 28:8.
4. By the Ministry of the Elders, anointing the sick with prayer of faith – James 5:14-15
Special Notice – Before we can work by healing without medicine, we would have sanctified our life to the doing of the Law – Romans 6:13, 19; Romans 12:1; Matthew 16:24; II Corinthians 8:5, 15.
Many miracles were performed by the Apostles – Acts 9:33-42; Acts 19:11-12; Acts 28:8-9.
