Laws of GOD & Divine Healing
of God & How to Receive a Miracle
& Answers on
God's Laws on Divine
by Pastor Max
1: IS DIVINE HEALING FOR TODAY?
and religious men have debated this issue for years. Some say
"Yes"; others "No". What does the Bible say? That is
what counts! What I say or what other clergymen or theologians say carries
no weight, especially if it conflicts with or disagrees with God's Word.
SAYETH THE SCRIPTURES ABOUT DIVINE HEALING? The Bible is the
inspired Word of God and the final authority for faith and morals. The
Holy Scriptures has the final say about everything concerning life, death
me ask you a question: IS JESUS FOR TODAY? If He is for today, then the
forgiveness of sins is for today and divine healing is also for today. If
He is not for today, then we have believed in vain and the gospel is
Jesus Christ is "For Real" then divine healing is for real. If
He is a phony, a myth, a mirage or a liar then the Bible isn't worth the
paper it's written on!
the bottom line: If Jesus Christ is alive, there is hope for Divine
Paul declared that, "If the dead rise not" then Christ is not
raised; And if Christ is not raised, then He is still dead with no power
to save, heal, deliver or bless anyone! "But, now is Christ risen
from the dead and become the first fruits of them that slept!" (1
is alive! And because He is alive, there is hope for us with forgiveness,
healing, prosperity, and abundant blessings! Praise God!
is meant by "become the first fruits of them that slept"?
Christ is the first person in recorded history to die and rise from the
dead, NEVER TO DIE AGAIN!
died and was raised from the dead by our Lord Jesus, but he had to die
again! Someone said, “I feel sorry for Lazarus; he had to die twice”!
Jesus died once. He was raised from the dead. He will never die again!
Christ is alive and relevant to our needs: His interest in us, is to do us
good! His Gospel is effective, reliable and totally viable!
gospel works! The blood is efficacious and cleanses away our sins! His
stripes bring healing and there is Divine Blessing through the touch of
His hand. The Bible says, "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today
and forever." (Hebrews 13:8)
true Christians believe in the DEATH, BURIAL and RESURRECTION OF JESUS
CHRIST! We believe and confess that He died for us on Golgotha's hill, was
buried in the Garden Tomb and rose again on the third day. We believe that
He ascended into Heaven and sat down on the right hand of "The
Majesty on High" and will soon return to rapture the church (1
Thessalonians 4: 16-18) and judge the quick (living) and the dead. (1
Corinthians 3:13) (Romans 20:11-12)
indeed, Jesus Christ is changeless, for He is GOD, the Son, He is eternal
and always constant,
Almighty declares, "I am the Lord, I change not." (Malachi 3:6)
Since He has not changed, He still has the same desires, wishes and plans
for His people as He always had. Unless, He came back from the dead
different; slow, with a mental block, unable to discern right from wrong
or with a totally different philosophy.
ABSURD! He has not changed, He will not change and He cannot change,
for He is the ONE which was, which is and which is to come, the Almighty!
for one moment believe the lies propagated by the J.W.’s and some
evangelicals, saying that Jesus changed His will about divine healing,
miracles & the Baptism of the Holy Ghost.
a ridiculous, carnal, humanistic teaching these deluded people teach about
the Eternal God & His changeless Word.
His death and resurrection, our Lord Jesus emphasized, "...all power
is given unto Me in heaven and in earth." (Matthew 28:18)
has no mental block or speech impediment. He said what He meant and meant
what He said. It’s as simple as that. His doctrine or teaching did not
change with the traumatic sufferings & death on the cross.
about the word of Jesus Christ? - Can it be trusted and believed?
Divine Healing for today? Well, let me ask you another simple question: Is
God's Word for today? Does His Word have any special meaning or authority
for us today? Or is it only a thing of beauty, a centerpiece to adorn the
coffee table or to be read for its poetic style, its prose or its fine
His death and resurrection altered His Word or will at all? OF COURSE NOT!
If He really did rise from the dead, He must of necessity, be the same in
actions as well as words. He is the same. Nothing has changed! His will or
wish is found in His Word and His Word is synonymous with His will or
wish. You cannot separate a man from his word or a man's speech and action
from his person. They are one and the same.
cannot divorce Jesus Christ from His Word or His Power
His Word says so, we can and must believe it! Jesus said, "Heaven and
earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away." (Matthew
24:35) The Bible says, "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be
baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of
sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is
unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many
as the Lord our God shall call." (Acts 2:38,39)
doctrine of the 'Baptism of the Holy Ghost' has been debated by Church
denominations for centuries. Yet, nothing would be more plain.
said, "...for the promise (of the baptism) is unto you, and to your
children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God
DOES THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST MEAN?
Baptism of the Holy Ghost was for the generation which Jesus spoke to,
their children and to us today! And unto everyone who receives the Gospel
of Christ and by faith, invites the Holy Spirit into their
lives..."unto us many as the Lord our God shall call."
said, "I will never leave thee, I will be with thee until the end of
the world (age)." (Matthew 28:20) "I will never leave thee
nor forsake thee." (Hebrews 13:5) In the original Greek, Jesus used a
DOUBLE IMPERATIVE to strengthen His promise: "I will never, no never
leave thee. I will never, no never forsake thee."
He declared, "Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in
Me: or else believe Me for the very work' sake. Verily, verily, I say unto
you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and
greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. And
whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be
glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do
ye love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He shall
give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; Even the
Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not,
neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall
be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you."
with an average intelligence and any common sense, can readily see -
according to His own words - that Jesus Christ was expecting the Church
(His body) to experience more divine supernatural power after His
departure to Heaven than while He was on earth because of the coming of
the Holy Spirit who would infuse believers with His power.
JESUS CHRIST IS FOR TODAY, THEN DIVINE HEALING IS FOR TODAY; IF THE BIBLE
IS FOR TODAY, THEN IT STANDS TO REASON THAT DIVINE HEALING IS FOR TODAY!
DIVINE HEALING ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING GOOD?
will let the Word of God answer for itself! "How God anointed Jesus
of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: Who went about doing good,
and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with
Him." (Acts 10:38)
definitely, the Scripture emphasizes that Jesus went about doing good and
healing all who were oppressed of the devil! The devil oppressed the
people with sin, sickness, fear and torments, but Jesus came to the people
with Divine Healing, WHICH IS VERY GOOD.
literal Greek translates this verse as follows: "...and healing all
those under the dominion and lordship of Satan." (Acts 10:38)
said, "The thief (devil) cometh not but for to steal, kill and
destroy. I am come that ye may have life and more abundantly." (John
10:10) Only God can give life and Jesus promised us ABUNDANT LIFE which is
an overflowing of good things from the hand of our Lord.
Bible says, "No good thing will God withhold from them that walk
uprightly" (Psalms 84:11) "Every good gift and every perfect
gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom
is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." (James 1:17)
HEALING DOES A LOT OF GOOD. As a matter of fact, Jesus called Divine
Healing, THE CHILDREN'S BREAD! "But He answered and said, It is not
meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs." (Matthew
was a ruler of the Jews, probably a teacher or professor of theology in
the synagogue. He said, "...Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher
come from God for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God
be with Him." (John 3:2) Miracles of Divine Healing are a gift from
God to bring blessings and deliverance to the people! In short, God is the
healer of sickness & diseases.
healing comes from GOD, by the will of GOD & for the blessing &
edification of His people
the Father is a Healer: He declared, "I am the Lord that healeth
thee" (Exodus 15:26) This is His Healing Covenant with Israel.
the Son is a Healer: The Bible says, "And Jesus went about all the
cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the
gospel of the kingdom, and HEALING EVERY SICKNESS AND EVERY DISEASE AMONG
THE PEOPLE." (Matthew 9:35)
the Holy Spirit is a Healer: St. Paul emphasized, "If that same
Spirit that raised up Jesus Christ from the dead, dwell in you, He that
raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (make life in) your
mortal (earthly, human, temporal) bodies by the Spirit that dwelleth in
you." (Romans 8:11)
has blessed His people with divine health, strength, protection, blessings
and enumerable miraculous interventions! When you think of the many sick
people who suffer untold agony and pain, we don't need to wonder if divine
healing does any good. Certainly, destroying sickness and pain is a
blessing, otherwise we may as well close down all our hospitals and
terminate the employment of all medical personnel.
you consider the economic hardships imposed on families because of
disease, the separations of loved ones, the greatly weakened work force
and the business community that is affected by sickness and death, we
don't need to ask if divine healing is a blessing! Any one with even an
average intelligence would attest to that fact.
Care system almost bankrupt because if influx of disease & rising
constantly hear US politicians and lawmakers debating the need for and the
costs of revamping their health system! All say that a new health plan is
needed because of the pressing needs of the infirm. And Canadian nurses
and doctors regularly decry the cuts in spending by our provincial &
is a very real concern that the AIDS epidemic will eventually totally
bankrupt the already overstrained health systems of the world! Add to
that, other new diseases together with the re-emergence of a number of
deadly old viruses, germs & bacteria! And we have a major problem.
is also a very real concern among homosexuals, bi sexual and intravenous
drug addicts, that there will be an outcry and backlash against them when
our hospitals are over-crowded and all "the health money" is
exhausted due to AIDS victims.
God help us all & send a revival of righteousness to head off these
awful epidemics! And may we have the faith to pray for staggering miracles
of healing, for those who are afflicted including AIDS sufferers.
health & welfare of the human race is of vital concern to governments
everywhere. Why should not the Christian Community - which has access to
the mighty power of God, through faith and prayer - do everything within
our power to bring healing to those who are suffering untold agony and
must take the lead in bringing healing, deliverance and blessing to the
poor, needy, sick and suffering, For we are extensions of Christ's
hands and feet in this generation.
James states: "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning."
the beginning when God created Adam & Eve, He saw that His creation
"WAS GOOD". There was no sin and consequently NO SICKNESS OR
DEATH in the garden of Eden! When sin entered into the world through
Satan’s temptation of our first parents, Adam & Eve, death was the
& disease is incipient death or "death on the installment
Jesus Christ - the Second & Last Adam - came to earth, one of His
major targets was sickness and disease. He healed the sick, cleansed the
lepers, cast out unclean spirits and raised the dead.
Holy Spirit answers our question, "DOES DIVINE HEALING ACCOMPLISH
ANYTHING GOOD?" Here is His answer: "How God anointed Jesus of
Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and power, WHO WENT ABOUT DOING GOOD, and
healing all who were oppressed of the devil, for God was with Him."
and more, we read reports in medical journals that give credence to what I
have written here. A number of years ago the American Medical Association
sent out a questionnaire to tens of thousands of their medical doctors.
One question dealt with their success in treating their patients. Their
answer was quite shocking: They stated that they were able to help only
10% of their patients.
other words, 90% received no help.
you want to know if Divine Healing is worthwhile, ask the many who have
been healed of incurable cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis,
insanity or a hundred other sicknesses, through faith in Jesus Christ.
Care etc, Healing News Reports.
us consider the enormous drain on the families of the sick and infirm. The
pain of separation, the economic costs due to lost productivity, cost of
medicine, surgery and hospital stay when someone is seriously ill or dies!
Then ask any rational person if Divine Healing does any good.
A VERY DELUDED PERSON WOULD ANSWER IN THE NEGATIVE.
IT GOD'S WILL TO HEAL EVERYONE?
are many things we do not know or understand about God. If we could
understand Him, He would not be God. He would be no more powerful than
ourselves and would be unable to help us, or we would be as great as He
and wouldn’t need Him.
could I possibly understand God, when I cannot even understand myself? It
is therefore impossible for me to understand the One Who created me. But,
we are not asked to understand God, ONLY TO BELIEVE AND TRUST IN HIM! And
how do we do that? By believing & trusting His Word.
one thing we know for certain, is that Jesus Christ didn’t turn away
anyone! He healed everyone who approached Him for a spiritual or physical
miracle! Please study the following true accounts of God's miracles in the
lives of people who come in contact with Jesus.
1 - JESUS HEALS A BLIND MAN
heard the cry of a blind man just outside the city of Jericho and
responded by healing Bartimaeus. ":And they came to Jericho: and as
He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great number of people,
blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side
when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say,
Jesus, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me."
many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a
great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me."
Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind
man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise, He calleth
thee." "And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came
Jesus answered and said, unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto
thee? The blind man said unto Him, Lord, that I might receive my
Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And
immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way."
2 - JESUS HEALS DEAF & DUMB EPILEPTIC
heard the cry of the father of a deaf and dumb epileptic boy and made him
one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto Thee
my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth
with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to Thy disciples that they
should cast him out; and they could not."
answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with
you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto Me."
they brought him unto Him: and when he saw Him, straightway the spirit
tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming."
He asked his father, How long is it since this came unto him?" And he
said, "Of a child."
ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy
him: but if Thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help
said unto him, "If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him
straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord,
I believe; help thou mine unbelief."
Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the foul
spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come
out of him, and enter no more into him."
the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as
one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead."
Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose." (Mark
3 - JESUS HEALS WOMAN WITH ISSUE OF BLOOD
heard the cry of a woman at the end of her rope, who had spent her life
savings on medical help and her condition was unchanged. By faith, she
struggled through the crowds and touched the hem of His garment and was
a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had
suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had,
and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched His garment.
she said, If I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole."
straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her
body that she was healed of that plague.
Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that virtue had gone out of Him,
turned Him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?"
His disciples said unto Him, Thou seest the multitude thronging Thee, and
sayest Thou, Who touched Me?
He looked round about to see her that had done this thing".
the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and
fell down before Him, and told Him all the truth.
He said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace,
and be whole of thy plague." (Mark 5:25-34)
4 - JESUS HEALS DEMON POSSESSED GIRL
tried to convince a Syrophenecian woman that He had been sent only to
"the lost sheep of the House of Israel" but she wouldn’t take
"No" for an answer. She would not be denied and began
worshipping Jesus, calling Him Lord.
was His response? He performed the miracle for the woman’s daughter! He
was moved with compassion for her need and responded to her prayers, faith
is the answer to our problems. We must seek Him as she did and with a
strong faith that does not quit, keep on asking and believing, while
simultaneously giving Him praise & worship.
a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of Him,
and came and fell at His feet. The woman was a Greek, a
Syrophenician by nation; and she besought Him that He would cast forth the
devil out of her daughter.
Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet
to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.
she answered and said unto Him, Yea, Lord: yet the dogs under the table
eat of the children's crumbs. And He said unto her, For this saying
go thy way, the devil is gone out of thy daughter.
when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her
daughter laid upon the bed." (Mark 7:25-30)
5 - I WILL - BE THOU CLEAN:
healed a leper who had broken the Jewish law which forbad our unclean
persons (with leprosy) to come in contact with the general population.
Jesus - contrary to local custom and regulation - laid His hand upon the
head of the leper and cured him.
He was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him.
"And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, if
Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean.
Jesus put forth His hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean.
And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself
to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony
unto them." (Matthew 8:1-4)
also healed the servant of a Roman centurion who came to Him in faith and
expectancy. When told of the sick servant, Jesus said, "I WILL
COME & HEAL HIM".
when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion,
beseeching him. And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of
the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, "I
will come and heal him."
centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy that thou
shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant
shall be healed." "For I am a man under authority, having
soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth, and to
another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth
Jesus heard it, he marveled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say
unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so
be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame
hour." (Matthew 8:5-10,13)
6 - JESUS HEALED ALL WHO WERE SICK
He went, Jesus brought salvation. Sinners were converted, the blind, deaf
& dumb were healed and made to see, hear and speak and many evil
spirits were cast out of people.
when Jesus entered Peter's house, He saw his mother-in-law lying sick with
He touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and served Him.
That evening they brought to Him many who were possessed with demons; and
He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick. This
was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, "He took our
infirmities and bore our diseases." (Matthew 8:14-17)
