Many people are wondering if healing is truly the will of God. In our search for the truth regarding this matter it’s important for us to search out what Jesus did while He was walking the earth. Hebrews 13:8 tells us that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Also in Malachi 3:6 the Lord proclaims: “For I am the LORD, I change not…” In the Scriptures listed below, we will see proof that it is God’s will to heal and that He is desirous to do so!
Well, that’s good news for us! We need to understand that if healing was provided for under the Old Covenant which lasted up until the time that Jesus hung on the cross, how much more now, under the New Covenant, can we expect to receive healing. And remember, in both cases God’s will is still the same because He changes not!
In case you are feeling like this may be for others but not for you, just remember that the Scriptures repeat over and over that God shows no favoritism. If you have made Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior then you can expect Him to perform His Word in your behalf. What He does for one He will do for all. – Amazing Grace!
Matthew 4:23-24 “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them.”
Matthew 8:2-3 “And behold, a leper came to Him, and bowed down to Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, you can make me clean.” And He stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.”
NOTE – The leper believed Jesus was able, but he questioned His willingness. Jesus set the man straight about His will. He is still willing today!
Matthew 8:5-7 “And when He had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, entreating Him, and saying, “Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, suffering great pain.” And He said to him, “I will come and heal him.”
NOTE – I love this Scripture. Here a Roman Officer, an enemy of the Jews, a Gentile, comes to Jesus for the healing of his servant. However, he does come by faith recognizing Jesus as Lord. In fact this man is commended by Jesus as having great faith. If the power of God could work through a Gentile, one outside the covenant, how much more on one that is IN the covenant as we are who have confessed Jesus Christ as Lord!
Matthew 8:16 “And when evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed; and He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick.”
Matthew 9:27-30 And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out, and saying, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!” And after He had come into the house, the blind men came up to Him, and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” Then He touched their eyes, saying, “Be it done to you according to your faith.” And their eyes were opened.
Matthew 9:35 “Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.”
Matthew 14:14 “And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.”
NOTE – Do you think the compassion of Jesus has changed today? – Certainly Not!
Matthew 15:30 “Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus’ feet, and He healed them.”
Matthew 19:1-2 “Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these sayings, that He departed from Galilee and came to the region of Judea beyond the Jordan. And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them there.”
Mark 1:32-34 “And at evening, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils. And all the city was gathered together at the door. And he healed many that were sick of various diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.”
Mark 5:25-34 “Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment; for she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”
Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?” But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?'”
And He looked around to see her who had done this thing.` But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. “And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
Mark 9:23 “Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Mark 10:46-52 “Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. Then they called the blind man, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you.” And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus. So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?”
The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.”
Luke 6:17-19 “And He came down with them and stood on a level place with a crowd of His disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him and be healed of their diseases, as well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.”
Luke 7:21 “And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.”
Luke 8:49-54 “While He was still speaking, someone came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, “Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble the Teacher.” But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, “Do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well.” When He came into the house, He permitted no one to go in except Peter, James, and John, and the father and mother of the girl. Now all wept and mourned for her; but He said, “Do not weep; she is not dead, but sleeping.” And they ridiculed Him, knowing that she was dead. But He put them all outside, took her by the hand and called, saying, “Little girl, arise.” Then her spirit returned, and she arose immediately. And He commanded that she be given something to eat.”
Acts 10:38 “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”
NOTE – It is very clear by this verse of Scripture who is the author of sickness and disease!
