HEALING SCHOOL #1: SIGNS AND WONDERS TODAY
DOES GOD STILL HEAL TODAY?
There are many people who don’t believe that God still heals today.
This may be because of (a) personal experience or (b) wrong teaching.
THE BIG IDEA: The goal of today’s message is to convince you through laying a strong Biblical foundation that healing is God’s will today. Because Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever - and He is the Lord who heals us - He is still healing the sick today.
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17).
To have faith in healing, you must hear what the Word of God says about healing.
As I taught on prophecy & hearing God’s voice, I heard testimonies from those who did.
OPENING TEXT: The Lord forgives all our sins and heals all our diseases
“Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases.” (Psalm 103:1-3).
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8).
STORY FROM THE LIFE OF JESUS: Jesus is the Saviour and Healer
“So He got into a boat, crossed over, and came to His own city. Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you." And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, "This Man blasphemes!" But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, "Why do you think evil in your hearts? For which is easier, to say, ’Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ’Arise and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins"--then He said to the paralytic, "Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house." And he arose and departed to his house. Now when the multitudes saw it, they marveled and glorified God, who had given such power to men.” (Matthew 9:1-8).
15 BIBLICAL REASONS WHY HEALING IS GOD’S WILL TODAY:
1. The Love and Compassion of Jesus:
“Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching…preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them.” (Matthew 9:35-36).
“And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.” (Matthew 14:14).
2. The Goodness of the Father:
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you…how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him?” (Matthew 7:7,11).
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights.” (James 1:17).
Why is healing God’s will today? Because God is good and loves to give good gifts to His kids
3. The Willingness of Jesus:
“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…Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, saying, "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented." And Jesus said to him, I will come and heal him.” (Matthew 8:2-7).
