1 Kings 8:56 Blessed be the Lord that hast given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that He promised: there hath not failed one word of all His good promise, which He promised by the hand of Moses His servant.
The Lord left us these words to show us how much He is for us.
Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of Gods elect?

The Name of Jesus

It is very good to give the Lords words a place in our lives, by reading our Bibles and listening to the Scriptures on tape. Sharing what we have heard with others helps us to remember, and puts in motion that Scriptural principle: give and it shall be given unto you. It is important to consistently attend church services where healing and the whole gospel are taught. The majority of people in the New Testament were healed in groups which gathered together to hear the words of Jesus. When we come together to hear the Word of God, understanding and a new way of seeing things comes.
Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
Psalm 92:13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;

Acts 5:12 And by the hands of the Apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people: (and they were all with one accord in Solomons porch).

Healing Through the Holy Spirit

1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Healing through Giving
Psalms 41:1 To the chief Musician, A Psa lm of David. Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.2 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.3 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.
Malachi 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
Isaiah 58:6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.
Healing through the Hands of Disciples
Mark 15:20 And He said unto them, go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved but he that believeth not shall be damned and these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils: they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into heaven and sat on the right hand of God and they went forth and preached everywhere the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following amen.
Acts 5:12 And by the hands of the Apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomons porch).
Acts 9:17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.9:18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
Luke 5:13 And He put forth His hand and touched him saying, "I will, be though clean." And immediately the leprosy departed from him.
Luke 4:40 Now when the sun was setting all they that had any sick with diverse diseases brought them unto Him: and He laid His hands on every on of them and healed them.
The Lord has provided us with "healing" hands. Your hands, used as a vessel by the Lord, can bring healing comfort and love to others. Your hands, Gods words and the anointing of the Holy Spirit, are a powerful combination.
Healing by Prayer
Prayer is communication with God. Remember when you talk to God, it is important to listen, and hear how he wants you to deal with the situations brought before Him. In Christ are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge found. Obey implicitly His voice and direction. The Lord knows how to meet every need!
Jesus Christ was successful because He only did what he saw His Father doing, and He also did only those things which pleased His Father.
John 5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, verily, verily, I say unto you, the son can do nothing of himself; but what he seeth the father do: for what things soever he doeth these also doeth the son likewise.
John 7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, "My doctrine is not mine but His that sent me".
John 8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
John 16:13 Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth; for He shall speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak and He shall show you things to come.
Praying Gods Words Brings Results
Gods words are His will are presented for your benefit:
Psalm 103:1 A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Psalm 68:13 Bless be the Lord who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.
The following scriptures show you how effective prayer brings results
Acts 10:40 Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly;41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us.
Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray believe that ye will receive them and ye shall have them.
People can also be healed by contact with something that has been exposed to the anointing of God.

Acts 5:15 Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.16 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
Matthew 14:15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.
11 Kings 13:21 And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha and when the man was let down and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood up on his feet.
Healing with Forgiveness
Healing and forgiveness are partners. Notice how they are used together in the following passages of scripture.
James 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
Isaiah 33:24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.
Matthew 9:6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.7 And he arose, and departed to his house.
Healing by Grace - Through FAITH
Everything we receive from God comes by grace through faith.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.
Faith brings healing in every area of life. Jesus Christ constantly referred to peoples faith bringing them what they had need of. We can thank God that faith is a gift we can receive from Him. We need to operate in faith to please God.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

13 "we having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed and therefore have I spoken; we also believe and therefore speak (your conversation is your faith speaking!)"
James 2: Faith is active
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
1 Timothy 6: - Faith fights.
12 "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life whereunto thou are also called and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses."
|Power||2 Thessalonians 1:1; - 1 Corinthians 2:5|
|Life for others||Luke 7:7-10|
|Healing||Acts 3:16; Acts 14:9|
|Wholeness||Matthew 9:22, Mark 10:52|
Feed your faith and it will destroy your fears and replace your doubts. Remember God is for you! Faith is your gift from God to receive and cherish. Faith is like a telephone for heavenly connections, and the line of Gods grace is always available, because Jesus Christ has already made the way.What is written here is only a portion of what is available to every believer in the way of healing. Search the Bible and you will see how interested the Lord is in your health. Remember that Jesus Christ is alive and he cares for you.
