Many churches teach that divine healing is no longer available. They believe that the biblical accounts of healing ended after the days of the Apostles. And yet we have documented accounts of healing throughout the history of Christianity. In my own life, I have experienced healing. I sustained a serious, work-related back injury in the late ’70s. I was in excruciating pain. The test result rendered a diagnosis of a ruptured disk between L4 and L5, in my lower back. This injury required surgery and at that point, any procedure that alleviated the pain was of great interest. At the time I was pastoring a church in Florida one night after preaching the Holy Spirit instructed me to have the men of the church pray for me. In those moments of prayer, I knew that I received my healing yet I continued to be in great pain. The day before surgery, following my doctor’s instructions, I went to the hospital to check-in. It was late in the afternoon and did not expect to see my doctor until just before surgery the next morning. To my surprise, the doctor showed up and asked me why I was there since he knew that I had been praying for a miracle. I told him I was there because he told me I had to be there. His response was a smile as he started to examine me. When he concluded his exam I realized the movements that would have been impossible before no longer caused me pain. After several tests, it was apparent that God had healed me. I jumped out the bed and bent over and touched the floor! The doctor looked at me over his Ben Franklin glasses and said,” you’d be in more pain tomorrow if we did the surgery than you are now. It looks like you got your miracle!” He checked me out of the hospital I went to my car and the reality of what had just occurred hit me, I lowered my head onto the steering wheel and began weeping with joy and gratitude. Many times in my journey as a believer I have heard that small inner voice of the Holy Spirit but this time the voice that spoke was so strong I turned and looked in the back seat to see if someone was there. The voice was God and He said, “Preach faith and love for without this no man will ever see me and what I have done for you I will do for others”.
As I prepared my message for the next Sunday, I did as the Lord had instructed and prepared a message on faith. After ministering that message on Sunday morning, I asked if anyone needed healing and twenty-six people came forward to be prayed for. There were various sicknesses and diseases, heart conditions, blood pressure, cataracts, and glaucoma. That morning everyone who came was healed.
Yes, you guessed it! Healing did not stop with the age of the apostles. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. What the Lord has done for one, He will do for you.
John 14: 12 says, Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do because I go to My Father.
Let’s look at this verse, “he who believes in Me”. Do you believe in Jesus? If so, then this scripture is for you. If you are not a believer then you can become one by accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior.
“The works that I do”. What works? Healings, miracles, casting out of demons. Now these same works that Jesus did, He says the one who believes (you) WILL do also... Jesus went on and say, “greater works than these shall he (you) do because Jesus has gone to the Father.
