Matthew 4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing ALL MANNER OF SICKNESS and ALL MANNER OF DISEASE among the people.
Divine healing is the process or act of God by which He: repairs a damaged human body; or drives out a foreign intruder (sickness/disease). In healing, He is destroying enemies to human health and in certain conditions, the works of the devil’s oppression in the human body 1 John 3:8; Acts 10:38.
When Adam and Eve chose to rebel (to do it their own way), sin, sickness, death, and curse entered the human race. Jesus came to provide a complete remedy for each one.
He came to save and heal the inner man.
He came to save and heal the outer man.
Jesus revealed God’s compassion for man who He saw bruised and bleeding in the hands of a heartless enemy. So great was His compassion that He got angry with men who tried to interfere with His healing ministry by their interpreting the Word to fit what they wanted to believe Mark 3:5. In showing compassion by healing the man, He was removing what distressed His heart because it is His nature to heal. Health is a law of God.
In Mark 5, in the story about the woman with the issue of blood, when the crowd gathered around Jesus, she pressed to touch the hem of His garment. She believed that in so doing she would be healed. She did not ask the Master to heal her. He never gave consent to healing her but the healing anointing power flowed automatically from Him when she touched Him in faith. Who consented, willed, or gave permission for the healing power to flow into her body? It flowed because it is His nature to heal and health is a law of God, an inherent part of His being.
Most of the Church today has taught that healing is dependent on the exercise of the will of God and that the proper attitude for the Christian to assume is “If it be thy will” or “Yes, God can heal, yes He has power, and He can heal if he wills.” There was no sickness or disease in Jesus’ body when He was here on earth. Divine healing is God’s method to remove sickness from Jesus’ present body on earth. The blood of Jesus removed the sin, divine healing removes the sickness. Divine healing is a means to an end: a healthy members of the Body of Christ.
