Divine Healing In The Age Of Corona- Part 3

November 15, 2020

Review

  • Last week, we continued to build a foundation for a belief in divine healing.
  • This series has two objectives:
  1. To demonstrate that developing faith for divine healing is biblical, practical and beneficial.
  2. To foster reasonable expectations for divine intervention in the healing and recovery of your physical body.
  • To this end, we first discussed how we needed to look at healing holistically.
  • A narrow understanding of divine healing will often place people in one of two categories:
  1. Healing .
  2. Healing never.
  • The reality is that faith is not the only variable affecting our physical health.
  • Though this is true. . . we can still approach God when we are faced with sickness AND maintain a expectation to be healed.
  • In fact, this series is going to encourage you to expect healing time even though you know people are not healed all the time.
  • Stop looking at analytics and stick with your ace.
  • Jesus is your ace.
  • Jesus, our ace, is the healer and to see Him as the healer, as we discussed last week, we must also see Him holistically.
  • To see Jesus holistically is to see Him as the personification of every divine God has revealed to us in Scripture.
  • All the promises, principles and prophecies of Scripture culminate in (Luke 24:27)

The Importance of Starting with Jesus

  • Receiving divine healing has everything to do with seeing Jesus .
  • Ironically, to secure the prosperity that Word of faith preachers talk about, we must focus less on (the way we understand it) and focus more on .
  • Jesus is .
  • He’s everything we need.
  • This includes .
  • When we can see the God that heals in , we can receive healing from Him, like so many people did when Jesus walked physically on the earth.
