God Is Still Healing Today

 

God is still healing today, just as He was in Old Testament times, and when Jesus performed miracles of healing during the three years of His ministry on earth, and continuing after His crucifixion, resurection and ascension back to heaven, as the early Apostles and Christians healed the sick and raised the dead in Jesus name.

Read of the miraculous healing of Craig Marsh; The director of Turning Point Ministries - New Zealand:

Read how Craig was in the final stages of life and was close to dying, after numerous operations to remove stomach cancer in the years leading up to 1999. 

Read of how Craig’s body weight got right down to between 45 to 50 kilos following his final operation, after the last remaining part of Craig’s stomach, along with his gastric nerve was removed by surgeons in 1999.

Finally you will read how Craig was unable to eat even the smallest amount of food without suffering extreme nausea, and of how he was about to check into a hospice to die.  

It was at this point, when all seemed hopeless and death seemed inevitable, that God moved in mighty healing power and showed Craig that He had other plans for him.

He did this by demonstrating He is still in the miracle business today, and in such a way that it staggers the mind, and completely defies human intellect and logic.

Not surprisingly; Since that time Craig's faith has grown to such an extent, he believes God can do anything and that nothing is impossible for God.  Possessing the kind of faith that Jesus talked about when He talked of having faith to move mountains.  When you read Craigs story you will begin to understand why.  

Soon after his miraculous healing, God called Craig and his wife Jenni into a full time faith based ministry, where they travel the world praying for the sick, and where they continue to see the hand of God move in mighty healing power, just as He did in the days of the early church. 

This true story is seriously faith building!

20: Early disciples did confirm the Word by healing (Mk. 16:15-20; Acts 2:43; 3:1-12; 5:12-16; 6:8; 8:7-13; 11:19-22; 14:3, 27; 15:4, 12; 19:11-12; 28:9; Rom. 15:18-19, 29; 1 Cor 16:10; Phil. 1:7; 1 Th. 2:13; Heb. 2:3-4)

21: The Holy Spirit was sent into the world to carry on the healing ministry (Acts 1:1-8; 2:33; 1 Cor. 12; Heb. 2:3-4)

22: Jesus promised every believer not only ministers, power to do the works that He did (Mt. 17:20; 21:22; Mk. 9:23; 11:22-24; 16:15-20; Jn. 14:12-15; 15:7, 16; 16:23-26; Acts 1:4-8)

23: Gifts of healing and other gifts are promised as the spiritual equipment of the church (1 Cor. 1:7; 12:1-11; Rom. 1:11; 12:6-8; 15:18-19, 29; Heb 2:3-4)

24: Healing is part of the work of the church (Mt. 10:1-8; Lk. 10:1-21; 24:49; Acts 1:1-8; 1 Cor. 12; Jas. 5:14-16)

25: Healing is provided as part of Christ’s atonement (Isa. 53:4-5; Mt. 8:16-17; 13:14-15; Jn. 3:14; 10:10; Rom. 1:16; 8:11; 1 Cor. 11:23-32; Gal. 3:13; Jas. 5:14-16; 1 Pet. 2:24; 3 Jn.).

26: Healing is part of the children’s bread and their promised right by virtue of redemption (Mt. 7:7-11; 15:22-28; 17:20; 21:22; Mk. 9:23; 11:22-24; Lk. 13:16; Jn. 3:14-16; 14:12-15; 15:7, 16; 16:23-26; 1 Jn. 3:8, 20-22; 5:14-15; 3 Jn.)

27: Healing is one of the signs of the gospel to follow believers (Mk. 16:15-20)

28: Healing was not only for the O.T. days (Ex. 15:26; Ps. 91; 103:3) and for the Millennium (Isa. 30:26; 33:24; 35:1-10). It is also for this age, or the gospel is faulty and the new covenant worse than the old one (Mt. 8:17; 21; 22; Mk. 9:23; 11:22-24; 16:15-20; Jn. 14:12-15; 16; 2 Cor. 3:6-15; 1 Cor. 12:1-11; Heb. 2:3-4)

29: Healing proves that God’s promises are true (2 Cor. 1:20.) See above point

30: Healing is part of salvation, for the Heb. and Gr. words for salvation all imply the ideas of forgiveness, healing, health, and full deliverance from the curse (Rom. 1:16; Gal. 3:13; 1 Pet. 2:24)

31: Healing can naturally be expected as part of the infinite care of God over His children (Mt. 6:10; 7:7-11; 17:20; Mk. 9:23; 11:22-24; Lk. 11:1-13; 18:1-8; Jn. 14:12-15; 15:7, 16; 16:23-26; Heb. 11:6; Jas. 1:4-8; 5:14-16)

32: Healing is on the same basis as forgiveness of sins - prayer and faith (Mt. 9:1-7; 13:15; 21:22; Acts 28:27; Jas. 1:4-8; 5:14-16; Heb. 11:6)

33: Healing proves the resurrection of Christ and the descent of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4-8; 2:33; 3:16; 4:12; Rom. 8:11)

34: God has provided all necessary means of healing and complete defeat of satanic powers (2 Cor. 10:4-5; Eph. 6:10-18; Mk. 16:15-20; Jn. 14:12-15; Jas. 4:7; 5:14-16; 1 Pet. 2:24; 5:7-9)

35: Healing is always the will of God for His people who may “ask what ye will” (Jn. 15:7); “whatsoever” (Mt. 21:22; Jn. 14:12-15; 15:16); “anything” (Jn 14:14); “what things soever ye desire” (Mk. 11:22-24); and “much more” than earthly parents would or could give their children (Mt. 7:7-11)

Thus it is clear in Scripture; that bodily healing is provided for in the Old and New Testaments. The New Testament is based upon better promises than the Old Testament (Heb. 8:6)
