Healing in The Bible

The whole bible teaches the message of healing for our spirit, soul and body.

1.Healing is found in both covenants

‘Then God said, “Behold, I am going to make a covenant. Before all your people I will perform miracles which have not been produced in all the earth nor among any of the nations; and all the people among whom you live will see the working of the Lord, for it is a fearful thing that I am going to perform with you.’ Exodus 34:10

‘How will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard, God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will.’ Hebrews 2:3-4

2.Healing is part and parcel of His kingdom

The book of Luke clearly teaches us that the Kingdom of God(heaven) is the power and presence of The Lord.jesus teaches us that the Kingdom is upon us and we ‘see and hear’ the kingdom every time His power over the devil is displayed .

3.The scope of healing

‘Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases;’ Psalms 103:2-3

4. All believers are commissioned to heal

‘So Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” ‘ John 20:21

‘And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.’ Matthew 10:7-8

‘And He summoned the twelve and began to send them out in pairs, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits; They went out and preached that men should repent. And they were casting out many demons and were anointing with oil many sick people and healing them.’ Mark 6:7,12-13

‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” ‘Matthew 28:19-20

5.Healing is in the atonement

‘Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.’ Isaiah 53:4-5

‘This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: “He Himself took our infirmities and carried away our diseases.” Matthew 8:17

‘and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.’ 1Peter 2:24

At Wellspring, we also help people discover the effect of negative emotions on the body. There is a definite connection between our thoughts and our health. To maintain our healing, we need to capture our thoughts and think God’s thoughts.
