Biblical Healing (7): Filling In The Blanks

“1 When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. 2 And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”3 Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed” (Matthew 8:1–3).Continue reading “Biblical Healing (7): Filling In The Blanks”

Biblical Healing (6): What About Job?

Something that often hinders peoples faith for healing is the Job situation. But what was really taking place with Job? Remember that the Bible was written with progressive revelation. In-other-words, the completed revelation of who God is and His perfect will for humanity is found in the New Testament with the death, burial, and ressurrectionContinue reading “Biblical Healing (6): What About Job?”

Biblical Healing (5): The Works of God Revealed

“Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth.

Biblical Healing (4): Pauls Thorn

There are some doctrines so steeped in tradition that seeing it any other way takes a concerted effort.

Only when life or death hangs inContinue reading “Biblical Healing (4): Pauls Thorn”

Biblical Healing: (3) Receiving

Perhaps the greatest question concerning the promises of God is, “How do we get the promises working in our lives?” It should be obvious to anyone who’s been walking with God more than a few months that nothing is automatic. We must keep in mind who’s involved in receiving from God: God and the receiver.Continue reading “Biblical Healing: (3) Receiving”

Biblical Healing: (2) Healing And The Atonement

In our “Introduction to Healing,” we asked if healing was in the atonement. Today, we want to explore that question.

It also means that it is God’s will forContinue reading “Biblical Healing: (2) Healing And The Atonement”

Biblical Healing: (1) Some Personal Thoughts

Over the years I’ve noticed people are particularly sensitive about some subjects. Healing, though not at the top, is one of those subjects. I’m not asking you to believe me. In fact, don’t. Study for yourself. We’re all going to give a personal account for our decisions on judgement day. I won’t anwer for yourContinue reading “Biblical Healing: (1) Some Personal Thoughts”

Biblical Healing: Introduction

There are those who believe God heals today, those who don’t, and those who believe he might if He feels like it. Is any of this true? And if God is in the healing business, how can we get healed? Is there a Biblical foundation to believe for healing? Because if there is, I wantContinue reading “Biblical Healing: Introduction”
