Health and Salvation by the Name of Jesus

Divine-Healing“It is his name—that is, by faith in his name—that this man was healed whom you see and know. Yes, the faith that comes through Jesus has given this man this perfect health in the presence of all of you all.” – Acts 3:16

After Pentecost, the paralytic man was healed through Peter and John at the gate of the temple. It was “in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth” that they said to him, “Rise up and walk,” and as soon as the people in their amazement ran together to them, Peter declared that it was the name of Jesus which had so completely healed the man.

As the result of this miracle and of Peter’s discourse, many people who had heard the Word believed. The following day, Peter repeated these words before the Sanhedrin, “By the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth… does this man stand here before you whole”; and then he added, “There is none other name under heaven.., whereby we must be saved.” – Acts 4:12) This statement of Peter’s declares to us that the name of Jesus both heals and saves. We have here a teaching of the highest import for divine healing.

We see that healing and health form part of Christ’s salvation. In heaven even our bodies will have their part in salvation; salvation will not be complete for us until our bodies shall enjoy the full redemption of Christ. Why then should we not believe in this work of redemption here below? Even already here on earth, the health of our bodies is a fruit of the salvation which Jesus has acquired for us.

We see also that health as well as salvation is to be obtained by faith.

The tendency of man by nature is to bring about his salvation by his works. While for the body, he makes use of well-known remedies; why then should he seek for divine healing?
Happy is he who comes to understand that it is the will of God to heal; that God wills to manifest the power of Jesus, and also to reveal to us His Fatherly love; to exercise and to confirm our faith, and to make us prove the power of redemption in the body as well as in the soul. Oh, let us believe in the name of Jesus!

Wherever the Spirit acts with power, there He works divine healings. If divine healing is seen but rarely in our day, we can attribute it to the unbelief of worldlings and the want of zeal among believers. Let us pray earnestly for the Holy Spirit, let us place ourselves unreservedly under His direction, and let us seek to be firm in our faith in the name of Jesus, whether for preaching salvation or for the work of healing.

A prayer for healing

Dear heavenly Father, grant us healing today as in the days of Pentecost, so that we may glorify the name of Jesus. It is sad to see how little the power of His name is recognized today, how little it is the end of preaching and of prayer. Grant us the treasures of divine grace, of which Christians deprive themselves by their lack of faith and zeal, which are hidden in the name of Jesus. Awaken our consciences, and bring our hearts to obedience. We know, oh God, that you are ready to manifest the all-powerful healing of Your Son, and to do it in a striking way in body as well as in soul. Let us believe it for ourselves, let us believe it for others, for the circle of believers around us, and also for the Church in the whole world. Let us ask great things in Jesus’ name, counting on His promise, and we shall see You still do wonders by the name of Your holy Son.

I thank you, my Lord Jesus, that You are both the Savior of my soul and the healer of my body. Amen.

Jesus still heals today

FROM THE BOOK, “JESUS STILL DOES MIRACLES.”

“And Jesus went about all Galillee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel (Good News) of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.” – Matthew 4:2

When Jesus Christ, the Messiah of both Jews and Gentiles incarnated into a physical body and walked upon this earth 2,000 years ago, He not only had preached the gospel of salvation, He also healed people. He has the power to save us from our sins, to liberate us from demonic oppression, and heal us of our physical diseases as well.

He demonstrated His power to heal everywhere He traveled.

The Book of Matthew records that those who often came in contact with Him were “healed of all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.” Elsewhere, those who were mentally and physically oppressed by demonic spirits were also set free.

If the Bible assures us that Jesus is “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8),  and He changes not, then He can heal you of whatever infirmity you suffer from today. Don’t listen to the many religious skeptics who have lost their faith in God’s power and falsely teach that healing and miracles ended with the days of the apostles. Instead, put your faith in the Son of the Living God. He still heals and delivers today! He Himself declared that He would always be there for us: “I will never leave you nor forsake you…So we may bodly say: The LORD is my helper; I will not fear.” – Hebrews 13:5-6

Do you need a miracle in your life today? Are you sick in your body, or need to be delivered of demonic oppression? Put your trust in Jesus to heal you. If He did it 2,000 years ago, He can still do it today. Believe Him at His Word. He is not only your Savior, but also your healer!

If you need us to join you in prayer for your healing, email us your prayer request.

COMMENT from Marsha Olson: ““Absolutely Yeshua (Jesus) heals today Luis! If you do not mind I, liked to add something the LORD gave me. If we do not take care of our temples (our bodies) and nourish them with healthy foods and exericise; watch fat intakes, sodium intakes, and eat more fresh foods and less processed foods; to be obedient to do so and walk his ways; we would less sickness in the believers!  I can testify to that because I used to be very sick with  borderline diabetes borderline hypertension and borderline high cholesterol. America is I the most obese nation in the world right now I do believe. Excess weight has been the cause of many health problems not to mention bone and pain problems. Many make their G-D their belly – always wondering what they are going to eat next and how much. Sad but true. Matthew 6:31 YESHUA said, “Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear?”  Also I do believe that “If we confessed our sins to one another we would be healed” (James 5:16) and of course to the Almighty! We are required to do our part to be blessed. Amen.”

COMMENT from Jeff Brown: “You are so right! It always does my heart good to hear of the great faith of believers like you brother Luis!”

COMMENT from brother Luis: “Thanks, Jeff. Keep building yourself in God’s Word. It continually reminds us that strong faith can believe God to move mountains! In Jesus’ name, amen.”
