Healing is at the very heart of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Lord manifested Himself—He made Himself known—through healing.
Why healing? Because that is where God’s heart is. God’s heart is toward suffering people. Jesus didn’t countermand medicine. He just went beyond it.
This book, taken from a teaching by Jamie Buckingham, explains why the healing power of Jesus is still relevant for our lives today. As Jamie states, those who truly desire to move with God will eventually come to understand that God cares for us and wants to heal us. Jamie also discusses what the Scriptures say about people who refuse to believe that God still heals.
Many Christians don’t understand that the miracles of Jesus are still for us today. But the command has never changed—God’s people are still called to minister healing and deliverance, just as Christ instructed in Matthew 10: “As you go, preach this message: The kingdom of heaven is near. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.”
