OUTLINE OF COURSE "EXPLORING DIVINE HEALING"
A HEALING CHURCH
Healing is part of God’s plan for his people. In the Old Testament (Exodus 15:26) God says to the people “ . . I am the God who heals you.” Also in the Old Testament we find the prophets and leaders of the people occasionally healing and raising the dead.
However, with Jesus things changed - a large part of his ministry had to do with healing. He was and is the living Word, and he wanted the church that bears his name to practise healing - it was to be a healing church. That is the theme for this course – “A Healing Church”
The course is Bible based throughout and comprises 6 sessions:
We look at the call of Jesus on ordinary people, and his training them to make them his disciples.
We see how Jesus commissions his disciples (church) to go out to teach and to heal
We learn about the authority Jesus gives his disciples (church) and how he enables them through the Holy Spirit
We discover the power of prayer as we study the life of Elijah
We begin to put into practice what we’ve learned
Arena of Conflict, assurance of conquest, engaging the enemy
In the passage we started with (Exodus 15:26), the promise to be “the God who heals you” is set within the context of listening, doing and obeying. So while these sessions lead participants into knowing about and believing in Christian (Divine) healing, they also (and more importantly) are about: doing it, how to do it and who is to be doing it.
