Basis of Healing

Deuteronomy 28:20-22
World English Bible (WEB)

20 Yahweh will send on you cursing, confusion, and rebuke, in all that you put your hand to do, until you are destroyed, and until you perish quickly; because of the evil of your doings, by which you have forsaken me. 21 Yahweh will make the pestilence cling to you, until he has consumed you from off the land, where you go in to possess it.22 Yahweh will strike you with consumption, with fever, with inflammation, with fiery heat, with the sword, with blight, and with mildew. They will pursue you until you perish.

Deuteronomy 28:27
World English Bible (WEB)

27 Yahweh will strike you with the boils of Egypt, with the tumors, with the scurvy, and with the itch, of which you can not be healed.

Deuteronomy 28:59-61
World English Bible (WEB)

59 then Yahweh will make your plagues fearful, and the plagues of your offspring,[a] even great plagues, and of long duration, and severe sicknesses, and of long duration. 60 He will bring on you again all the diseases of Egypt, which you were afraid of; and they will cling to you.61 Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, Yahweh will bring them on you, until you are destroyed.

Galatians 3:13-14
World English Bible (WEB)

13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,”[a]14 that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

  • 1500 years = Old covenant Law was active

Jeremiah 31:31-34
World English Bible (WEB)

31 Behold, the days come, says Yahweh, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they broke, although I was a husband to them, says Yahweh. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Yahweh: I will put my law in their inward parts, and in their heart will I write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people:34 and they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know Yahweh; for they shall all know me, from their least to their greatest, says Yahweh: for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin will I remember no more.

For New Covenant People, sins and failures are not recorded

  • Hebrew 11, hall of fame, no sins are recorded

Example about Abraham

Romans 4:18-22
World English Bible (WEB)

18 Besides hope, Abraham in hope believed, to the end that he might become a father of many nations, according to that which had been spoken, “So will your offspring[a] be.”[b] 19 Without being weakened in faith, he didn’t consider his own body, already having been worn out, (he being about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 Yet, looking to the promise of God, he didn’t waver through unbelief, but grew strong through faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully assured that what he had promised, he was also able to perform.22 Therefore it also was “credited to him for righteousness.”[c]

  • Jesus healed them ALL

As you have believed

Healing in Hearing

Acts 14:8-10
New King James Version (NKJV)

And in Lystra a certain man without strength in his feet was sitting, a cripple from his mother’s womb, who had never walked. This man heard Paul speaking.

Jesus Cleansing a Leper

Matthew 8:1-4
New King James Version (NKJV)

When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”

Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.”Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

And Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

Leper CAME to Jesus

SOME THING MADE HIM TO COME

  • great multitudes followed Him  : means Jesus is walking in the opposite direction
  • Previous chapter Jesus was Preaching in the Mountain to the People, so He had to come down
  • The Mountain has good sound acoustics, so the sound even reaches people who stand way down
  • THATS HOW, the Leper would have heard what Jesus was Preaching, that’s how he came to Jesus with boldness ( Legally as per Law, a Leper is not allowed to come near anyone, if so, the Leper will be stoned to death ), so obviously the Leper heard what Jesus Preached which is not of the Law

Teaching is Paramount in Healing

Healing for the Unbelievers

James 5:14-15
New King James Version (NKJV)

14 Is anyone among you sick? 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 will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

For Believers

  • Sins are forgive ( Perfect Tense ) once for an all. The act doesn’t need to be repeated again

For Unbelievers

  • Sins have ( Future Tense ) to be forgiven,

James 5:15 for sick Unbelievers

  • James 5:15 speaks about the healing of Unbelievers, because they are yet to be forgiven.
  • For Believers there would be no sins to be forgiven for, because all their sins where forgiven once and for all, on the same time when they believed that Christ Died for their sins.
