WHAT IS CHRISTIAN HEALING?
WHAT IS CHRISTIAN HEALING
In the Old Testament of the Bible there are records of God promising to heal his people and delivering on that promise, but in the New Testament we find healing becoming an integral part of the ministry of Jesus. From the very start of His ministry, Jesus had the authority and power to bring God’s healing to those he met, and he did so on a regular basis. As Jesus taught his disciples “he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:1). So not only did Jesus heal, but his disciples did also - in fact Jesus commanded them to do so.
Next we find in the book of Acts that even after Jesus was no longer on earth the early church regularly healed the sick in the name of Jesus. On their way to the temple one day Peter & John met a lame beggar – Peter said ‘Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.’ And the man did, for the first time in his life.
At CFHH we continue that work in our own age, endeavouring to do things the way they were done by Jesus and the early church, and so bringing God’s healing power into the lives of those to whom we minister. We do this in the powerful name of Jesus and in His name alone. It is important to note that this Divine Healing is not dependant on the faith of the person seeking healing, but is available simply because God has made it so. The source of Divine Healing is God alone.
As the source of Divine healing is the God who made us and loves us, He is never going to do us harm. As we have to “allow God to be God” we can never predict the results, but they will always be for the good.
