Something To Do Before
Ask the Lord to guide you to sick people and be sure that you

1. I Am The Lord That Heals You
Matthew 9.35 tells us that Jesus has went
about preaching, teaching and healing the sick. John 14.12
reports Jesus expecting anyone that has faith in him to do the
same and more so! Paul wrote in Romans 15.19 that he fully
preached the gospel by "saying, doing and by signs and
Jesus commands his disciples to "heal
the sick," not just to pray for them. Many believers all
over the world tell how the Lord heals today spiritually,
physically, emotionally, even in marriage and finances
because his goal for us is wholeness in body, soul and spirit.
2. Healing Is All Through The Bible
If you were to stick a pin in almost any
page of the Bible the word would drip with the love and healing
Sickness is one result of the fall, but
from the beginning God promises his salvation and grace.
Genesis 3.15; 21.
In Exodus 3.7 we find that God sees all
tears and suffering. He is deeply concerned to do something
by working through an obedient and willing man.
By Exodus 15.22-26 the Lord reveals
himself for the first time as the Lord who heals. He shows
Moses a piece of wood as a picture of the Cross. We must
throw that wood into our own bitter waters to see them turn
In Numbers 21.4-9 God's people are
bitten by snakes through their own fault. Nevertheless the
Lord tells them to look away from the wound and to look up to
live. This is a picture of Hebrews 12.2 which tells us to
look away from the diagnosis and look to Jesus. Unlike
chameleons we cannot look in two places at once so we must
choose which place we are going to concentrate on, the
diagnosis or the promise of God.
Job has to persevere through terrible
unexplained suffering until finally he is healed and doubly
blessed. Job 42
David says not to forget that one of
the Lord's many benefits is that he heals all our diseases.
Psalm 103, 1-5
Malachi says the Lord has healing in
his wings. Malachi 4.2
Jesus Came To Do His Fathers
Hebrews 10.9. There are 26 different examples of Jesus
healing people in need that show us the will of Father. See
lesson 8 Signs and Wonders for the list.
Three ultra-reliable bible witnesses
confirm that Jesus heals the sick.
Isaiah the prophet points to Jesus
centuries before he came. You must read Isaiah 53, 4-6
Eye-witness Matthew says Isaiahs
prophecy is for here and now in Jesus. You must read
Eye-witness Peter looks back to
Jesus and says the prophecy has been fulfilled. See 1
3. Where Is My Healing?
"Our gospel is simple,
supernatural, centred on Christ and settled forever."
Can you see that Gods word tells
us that our healing was accomplished by Jesus on the Cross,
2000 years ago. Thats where we look back to find our
healing, not in the future. We see Jesus, believe and receive,
give thanks by faith, and rest, allowing the Lord to work
4. Gift For One Or Gifts
1 Corinthians 12.9 teaches us that the
Spirit gives "gifts" of healings for sick people. Gifts
of healings are plural words. This is not a gift of healing for
one person to use, although clearly some men and women have more
faith and anointing for ministering healings than others.
We Can All Heal The Sick
You might think your faith is too small but did you know
that we can all minister healings from the grace of God that
we have within our call and office, not necessarily leaning
upon our personal level of faith.
5. Who Can Minister
Great apostles, see 2 Cor. 12.12
Caring pastors, see Ezekiel 34.4
Fiery evangelists, see Acts 8.7
Sober teachers, see Mark 16.20
Gods prophets, see 1 Kings 17.21
Church elders, see James 5.14
Church deacons, see Acts 6.5
Ordinary believers, see Mark 16.17
6. How To Minister
With Gods guidance, promptings and
help you can minister to the sick anywhere, at any time, not just
in church services or evangelistic meetings.
Determine to truly hate sickness.
Determine to love people enough to
always offer to minister healing to them.
Wherever possible teach people to have
faith themselves and to pray for themselves, otherwise
lend them your faith.
Always yield to Holy Spirit, Acts 3.6
Ask the Lord to teach you how to pray,
eg. Is this sickness or is it a demon afflicting the

power of infirmity in Jesus' name.
Don't be afraid to pray against the
root of the sickness and command it to go in the name of
Jesus, because he takes the axe to the root.

and the laying on of hands, even anointing with oil. Mark
