While most people today accept disease and death as “normal” parts of life, they were never God’s original intention. When the world was first created, the Bible records, “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good” (Genesis 1:31). Disease and death only entered the world after Adam and Eve disobeyed the Lord and allowed satanic forces to gain a foothold on humankind (Genesis 3).
When Jesus came to earth, He announced that God’s Kingdom was at hand. He healed the sick, cast out demons, fed the multitudes and raised the dead. All of this was a demonstration of the blessings God intended at His original creation.
If you or a loved one is in need of healing today, remember that Jesus is your Great Physician. When He preached the Gospel of the Kingdom, He healed “ALL kinds of sickness and ALL kinds of disease” (Matthew 4:23). So no matter what kind of healing you might need, Jesus is ready to be your Healer!
Your Promises from God’s Word
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
—3 John 1:2
“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.”
“The whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.”
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases.”
“He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.”
“Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise.”
“If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”
“My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.”
“He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”
“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. 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.”
“These signs will follow those who believe…They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
