Healing Scriptures in the Bible

The first thing you have to really grasp is how good and merciful God and Jesus really are. Every time God decides to heal someone, He is showing incredible mercy, love, goodness and compassion towards that person.

A. How to get healed and avoid sicknesses

Some were fools through their sinful ways,
and because of their iniquities suffered affliction;
they loathed any kind of food,
and they drew near to the gates of death.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
He sent out his word and healed them,
and delivered them from their destruction.
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving,
and tell of his deeds in songs of joy! (Psalm 107:17-22)

Sometimes we get sick because of something that happens to us. Every year during flu season, people get sick basically because they breathed the wrong air. You might get sick because you ate something that you didn't know was too old for safety, or because of the genes your ancestors passed on to you, or because you stepped on something sharp by mistake, or any number of reasons. But sometimes we get sick because of something we did ourselves. Ever get stomach pains because you ate too much, or too fast, or a lot of something you should have only eaten a little bit of? Hundreds of thousands of people in the United States not only have stomach cramps, but are dangerously obese because they have uncontrolled eating habits. People are in the hospital with cancer in their lungs because of decades of cigarette use. People have injuries because they got distracted in the car and caused an accident. People get diseases that are only transmitted through careless, risky sexual behaviors which are warned against, not only by the Word of God, but by medical science. It's easy to get sick through no fault of your own, but it's just as easy to get sick because of something that is your fault.

Psalm 107 presents four mini-stories about the kinds of people God has redeemed from trouble. Verses 4-9 are about people who were lost in the desert and couldn't find civilization, but they cried out to God and He led them out of the desert.

Verses 10-16 tell the story of some people who had been put in prison because they had rejected God's direction, but they cried out to the Lord from prison and God delivered them.

And verses 23-30 tell the story of people who encounter a huge storm at sea, but they cry out to the Lord and He delivers them.

Verses 17-22, though (quoted above), caught my attention. They describe people who have become ill "through their sinful ways" and "because of their iniquities." By purely human standards, these people are getting what's coming to them. They're getting what they deserve. They've brought this sickness on themselves, and now it's time to pay the piper.

But these people, who had been so unwise that it brought sickness into their lives, suddenly did something wise: they cried out to the Lord. Did God say, sorry losers, but you brought this sickness on yourself, so you're going to have to lie in the bed you made? No, God did not! "He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction." Just like Jesus did for the centurion, God healed them with only a word. Did you notice whose word we're talking about? His word. But whose destruction are we talking about? It's their destruction. God replaced what they had (destruction) with what He had (His word and His healing). That reminds me of another switcheroo God has pulled: "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23) We can't earn eternal life; the only wages we can earn are death. Jesus took the wages we've earned—death—and gave us, free of charge, the wages he had earned—eternal life. I see a pattern here: we get the better end of this deal every time!

I also notice another pattern. When we cry out to God in distress and desperation, God sends what we need, not what we deserve. Did the sinful person deserve healing? No, he deserved sickness. Did you and I deserve eternal life? Nope... our wages were well-earned. But God is able and willing to give us not what we deserve, but what we cry out for. He wants to receive our "sacrifices of thanksgiving" and hear our "songs of joy!" So if you're sick because of abusing your body some way, swallow your pride and swallow your guilt right now, and cry out to God. I wish I could say that there will definitely not be any consequences of your actions, because there may still be some challenges that you have to face in your body as a result of what you've done, but what I can say is that if you will cry out to God, God will apply His deliverance to your situation if you stop doing these sinful habits!


B. Healing Scriptures in the Bible

As a result of the curse of Adam and Eve that is still in full operation on this earth – disease, sickness and illness are all still part of the big picture that we all have to put up with. Anyone of us at anytime can get sick.

We all know the different things that can happen to our bodies that can cause them to breakdown, and in some cases, seriously disable us. Just about any part of the human body can get hit with some type of cancer, and in some of these cases, these cancers can be terminal.

However, as Christians, we have an all-powerful God who not only has the power to fully heal us from any specific ailment that may strike us, but that He actually does want to heal us many of the time if we properly approach Him in our prayers.

In this article, we will give you many of the best verses from the Bible pertaining to being able to get a divine healing from God. As you will see in some of these specific verses, not only can God heal us, but many of the time He actually wants to heal us.

We will break these Scripture verses down under their specific captions below so you can fully grasp the revelation that God is trying to transmit to us on being able to receive a full, divine healing from Him.

B1. Our God is a Merciful God

The first thing you have to really grasp is how good and merciful God and Jesus really are. Every time God decides to heal someone, He is showing incredible mercy, love, goodness and compassion towards that person. So the first thing you will need to grasp from Scripture are the specific verses that will show us how merciful, kind and compassionate God really is.

You have to realize that God has these attributes in His personality. If you do not believe that God is a good, merciful, loving, kind and compassionate God – then you may not be able to receive a divine healing from Him because you will not have enough faith and belief in His ability to even want to heal you in the first place.

Many people are scared to death of God. They know that He does have a judgment and wrath side to His personality and as a result, they have become too scared to approach Him to enter into any kind of close, personal relationship with Him. And then when they do get sick and need a divine healing from Him, they are too scared to try and approach Him for their healing.

So the first thing each Christian must really grab a hold of if they really want to try and press in for a divine healing from the Lord is that God really does have a very loving and tender side to His personality – and that many of the time He actually does want to heal us and help deliver us out of any adverse situations that we may have just fallen into. And any kind of disease, illness or sickness is definitely an adverse situation.

Study these first set of verses very, very carefully. When you read one verse after another, you will really see how loving, kind, good, merciful and compassionate God Father really is – and as such, that He does have a natural desire in His personality to want to help His children out if they need any kind of help or deliverance from Him.

  1. “… But You are God, ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, abundant in kindness …” (Nehemiah 9:17)

  2. The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.” (Psalm 103:8)

  3. But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.” (Psalm 86:15)

  4. Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness …” (Joel 2:13)

  5. The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.” (Psalm 145:8)

  6. The Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting …” (Psalm 100:5)

  7. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him … But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him.” (Psalm 103:11,17)

Notice the words “mercy or merciful“ are stated in every one of these Scripture verses. Every time God decides to heal someone, He is showing incredible mercy towards that person. These verses are all telling us that not only is God merciful – but that He is “abundant and great in mercy.“ In other words, He is full of mercy and goodness. For those of you who are too afraid to approach God for any type of meaningful, personal relationship, notice that several of these verses state that God is “slow to anger.”

These verses are telling us that God has a long fuse. God does not blow as easily and quickly as some of us humans do. It really does take quite a bit to cause Him to lose His temper. All of these verses are showing you that you have absolutely nothing to fear in approaching God to enter into a close, loving, personal relationship with Him. God is your perfect loving Father and He has nothing but your best interests at heart. If you have been struck with any kind of illness or disease – do not be afraid to approach God for a divine healing. You may be pleasantly surprised with what He might just do for you.


C. Healing Scriptures from the Bible on different topics

C1. Bible Scriptures To Reference When Needing Healing

A collection of scriptures that some reference when in need of healing. The Bible is full of God’s promises of health and healing – let these verses instill faith in your heart.

Acts 5:16 The people also gathered from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all healed.

Hebrews 7:25 Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.

Acts 13:38-39 Let it be known to you therefore, brothers, that through this man forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and by him everyone who believes is freed from everything from which you could not be freed by the law of Moses.

Romans 8:11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

2 Corinthians 4:10-11 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

Deuteronomy 11:21 that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the heavens are above the earth.

Deuteronomy 7:15 And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which you knew, will he inflict on you, but he will lay them on all who hate you.

Mark 16:17-18 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.

Isaiah 40:31 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Jeremiah 30:17 For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord, because they have called you an outcast: ‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’

Isaiah 53:4-5 Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.

B2. God Does Have the Power to Heal You

Sometimes when someone has been hit by an extreme sickness or disease, especially with one that may be considered terminal, our faith levels may be severely shaken – possibly to their core! You have been just diagnosed with terminal cancer and the doctors have told you that you only have 6 more months to live.

Though you know God is all-powerful – your situation looks so hopeless, that you start doubting whether or not God can really deliver you out of such a dire, extreme and hopeless situation. You are so overwhelmed by the hopelessness of the situation, that you start forgetting how powerful God really is and that He does have the supernatural power to be able to fully heal you – no matter how grave the situation may appear to you in the natural.

These next three verses are telling us that nothing – I repeat nothing – is too impossible for God to be able to handle. Again, these verses should be burned into your memory banks so you can have them fully loaded up into your mind and spirit if you are ever faced with what appears to be insurmountable odds.

  1. For with God nothing will be impossible.” (Luke 1:37)

  2. But He said, 'The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.'” (Luke 18:27)

  3. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” (Ephesians 3:20)

The second verse is telling you that if you cannot get any kind of a healing from a doctor, then God Himself can come to your rescue and fully heal you – no matter how bad and hopeless the situation may appear to you in the natural.

Remember – God has the full power and full ability to accomplish anything that He will want to do. If He has the full, divine, supernatural power to create our entire world in 6 days – then I do not think He will have any problems in being able to fully heal you with whatever sickness or disease may have just struck your body.

Matthew 15:13 He answered, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up.

B3. God Does Want to Heal You

All of the above verses (see also B2) are definitely showing us that not only does God have the personality attributes to want to heal us, but that He also has the full, divine, supernatural power to actually be able to heal us – no matter how severe the sickness or illness may be. However, will He actually do it if you properly approach Him in your prayers?

These next set of verses will show you that not only does God actually want to heal you – but that He can and will heal you if certain conditions are met (but still it depends if God so wants it to be done, because sometimes one must suffer a time for one's sins committed or for any other reason known by God). Not only does the Bible give us knowledge and information on the personality attributes of God and Jesus – but it also shows us how many times in the past God and Jesus have actually healed other people.

Once you read how many times God and Jesus were healing other people back in both the Old and New Testaments – then this will help build up your own faith and belief that just maybe God and Jesus can also do the exact same thing for you.

The Bible tells us that God is no respecter of persons – which means He loves each person He has ever created equally and unconditionally. This tells us that if both God and Jesus were healing people back in both the OT and NT – then there is no reason we cannot approach Him for our own personal healing when we may need one in this day and age.

Again, study these verses very, very carefully. These specific verses are all showing how God can heal His own if they are walking in good stead with Him.

1. This first verse is a major foundational verse that needs to be fully committed to memory. It tells us that God does not change – ever! In other words, God is the same today as He was yesterday, and He will be the same for all of eternity. This is why God is totally dependable.

If God is the same today as He was yesterday – and if He was healing people back in the past in the Old Testament days – then this means that He can and will continue to heal today. This is why divine healing is still for everyone in this day and age. The gift of healing did not stop after the first set of apostles left the scene. Here is the verse: “For I am the Lord, I do not change …” (Malachi 3:6)

2. These next verses are all showing us the times that God was healing His chosen people back in the Old Testament. If God has not changed, and if He was healing His own chosen people back in the Old Testament – then this means He can and will continue to heal His own chosen people in the New Testament, which are Christians!

The very first verse will specifically tell us that if we belong to Jesus, then we are all part of “Abraham’s seed” and we are thus all “heirs” to the same blessings that God was giving the Jewish people back in the Old Testament. And one of those blessings was divine healing.

These verses will show you how active God really was in the area of divine healing when the Jewish people were walking in good stead with Him.

  1. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:29)

  2. If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.” (Exodus 15:26)

  3. And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you.” (Deuteronomy 7:15)

  4. “So you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you. No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.” (Exodus 23:25)

  5. He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” (Psalm 107:20)

  6. He also brought them out with silver and gold, and there was none feeble among His tribes.” (Psalm 105:37)

  7. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities; who heals all your diseases …” (Psalm 103:2)

  8. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all his bones; not one of them is broken.” (Psalm 34:19)

  9. For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,” says the Lord. (Jeremiah 30:17)

  10. O Lord my God, I cried out to You, and You have healed me.” (Psalm 30:2)

  11. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds … Great is our Lord, and mighty in power …” (Psalm 147:3)

  12. And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

  13. But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.” (Psalm 34:10)

  14. For the Lord is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” (Psalm 84:11)

  15. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

All of the above verses are definitely showing us how active God really was in taking care of the Jewish people back in the Old Testament. Notice some of the specific wording:

  1. Put none of these diseases on you

  2. Take away from you all sickness
  3. Sent His word and healed them
  4. There was none feeble among His tribes
  5. Heals all your diseases
  6. Guards all his bones – not one of them is broken
  7. Restore health to you and heal you of your wounds
  8. Heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds

Notice in three of these verses God is giving perfect health to all of them when He specifically says that “none“ of the diseases shall fall on them, that there was “none feeble among the tribes” and that He would take away “all” sickness from within their midst!

Again, if God did this for the Jewish people back in the Old Testament, and we have a new and better covenant through His Son Jesus Christ in the New Testament – then we all should have access to the same blessings that the Jewish people had – and one of the those blessings was having divine health and divine healing when needed!

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

B4. Jesus Christ Does Want to Heal You

If all of the above verses (see also B3) are showing us that it was the will of God to want to heal His chosen people back in the Old Testament – then the next set of verses will be showing us that it was also the will of Jesus Christ to heal when He was walking in the New Testament.

If God was constantly healing His people back in the Old Testament when they were walking right with Him – then it should come as no surprise that His Son Jesus will be wanting to do the exact same thing as He was walking in the New Testament. And that is exactly what you will find. Jesus was constantly healing people that came to Him – especially when they came to Him with enough faith and belief that He could actually heal them.

Here are 11 key Scripture verses showing how active Jesus really was with His healing ministry when He was walking with the full power of God for about three and half years.

Notice the first verse says the same thing about Jesus that it did about God – that He is the same today as He was yesterday. This means that if Jesus had a desire to heal when He was walking on our earth 2000 years ago – then He will still have that same desire to want to heal anyone in this day and age!

  1. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)

  2. Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee … “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:14,18)

  3. “… how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” (Acts 10:38)

  4. But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew from there; and great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.” (Matthew 12:15)

  5. And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.” (Matthew 14:14)

  6. Now it happened on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out of every town of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them.” (Luke 5:17)

  7. And when the men of that place recognized Him, they sent out into all that surrounding region, brought to Him all who were sick, and begged Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched it were made perfectly well.” (Matthew 14:35)

  8. “… who came to hear Him and be healed of their diseases, as well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.” (Luke 6:17)

  9. But when the multitudes knew it, they followed Him; and He received them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who had need of healing.” (Luke 9:11)

  11. Now Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of diseases among the people.” (Matthew 4:23)

If you study very closely what God Father did with the Jewish people back in the Old Testament, and what Jesus did with all those around Him in the New Testament, there is a definite pattern to Their ministries – and one of the blessings that both God and Jesus would manifest on a very regular and frequent basis was the gift of healing!

C4. God Is Our Healer Bible Verses

God is our healer and these are verses to meditate on when you are facing sickness or disease.

Psalm 103:1-3 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,

Acts 10:38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.

Matthew 9:35 And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction.

Matthew 12:15 Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he healed them all

Matthew 14:14 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

Matthew 14:35-36 And when the men of that place recognized him, they sent around to all that region and brought to him all who were sick and implored him that they might only touch the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well.

Luke 6:17-19 And he came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. And those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came out from him and healed them all.

Mark 9:13-28 And coming to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes disputing with them. And presently all the people seeing Jesus, were astonished and struck with fear; and running to him, they saluted him. And he asked them: What do you question about among you? And one of the multitude, answering, said: Master, I have brought my son to thee, having a dumb spirit. Who, wheresoever he taketh him, dasheth him, and he foameth, and gnasheth with the teeth, and pineth away; and I spoke to thy disciples to cast him out, and they could not. Who answering them, said: O incredulous generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me. And they brought him. And when he had seen him, immediately the spirit troubled him; and being thrown down upon the ground, he rolled about foaming. And he asked his father: How long time is it since this hath happened unto him? But he said: From his infancy: And oftentimes hath he cast him into the fire and into waters to destroy him. But if thou canst do any thing, help us, having compassion on us. And Jesus saith to him: If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And immediately the father of the boy crying out, with tears said: I do believe, Lord: help my unbelief. And when Jesus saw the multitude running together, he threatened the unclean spirit, saying to him: Deaf and dumb spirit, I command thee, go out of him; and enter not any more into him. And crying out, and greatly tearing him, he went out of him, and he became as dead, so that many said: He is dead. But Jesus taking him by the hand, lifted him up; and he arose. And when he was come into the house, his disciples secretly asked him: Why could not we cast him out? And he said to them: This kind can go out by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

1 Peter 2:24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.

B5. God Will Also Anoint His Believers With His Power to Heal

Not only does God want to heal you, not only does His Son Jesus Christ want to heal you – but now God wants to take it one step further. He now wants to anoint His believers with His supernatural power to be able to heal others.

Do you get the big picture on all of this? If God is wanting to anoint His believers with His supernatural power to be able to heal others – then this is telling us that God is now placing the gift of healing as a major blessing within His Body so we can have it available to us when we may need it.

The reason for this is because God wants to anoint and empower His people to be able to go to work for Him in preaching the gospel to the rest of the world and doing what He wants them to be doing in their specific calls for Him. Since we all live in a cursed and fallen world as a result of the curse of Adam and Eve – anyone of us can get sick at anytime. As a result, God has to have the gifts of healing operating within His Body so as to help get us back up and running if we do get hit with any kind of sickness or disease. Sometimes God will choose to heal you through the doctors and medical profession – other times He will heal you direct Himself or through the prayers of other believers.

Now here are the specific verses that will show you that God really does want to anoint His Body with His supernatural power to be able to heal others.

  1. And He said to them, 'Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.'” (Mark 16:15-18)

  2. Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases.” (Luke 9:1)

  3. And He called the twelve to Him, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits … And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.” (Mark 6:7,13)

  4. And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.” (Matthew 10:1)

  5. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as you go, preach saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 'Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.'” (Matthew 10:6)

  6. Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.” (Acts 19:11)

  7. And it happened that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and dysentery. Paul went in to him and prayed, and he laid hands on him and healed him.” (Acts 28:8)

  8. And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed.” (Acts 8:6)

  9. Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.” (Acts 14:3)

  10. Now there are diversities of graces, but the same Spirit; And there are diversities of ministries, but the same Lord; And there are diversities of operations, but the same God, who worketh all in all. And the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man unto profit. To one indeed, by the Spirit, is given the word of wisdom: and to another, the word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit; To another, faith in the same spirit; to another, the grace of healing in one Spirit; To another, the working of miracles; to another, prophecy; to another, the discerning of spirits; to another, diverse kinds of tongues; to another, interpretation of speeches. But all these things one and the same Spirit worketh, dividing to every one according as he will.” (1 Corinthians 12:4-11)

The last verse is the one telling us about the graces of the Holy Spirit that are still available to the Church today. And one of those graces is the gift of healing! This means that the Holy Spirit Himself can manifest the power to heal someone through any believer at anytime He should choose to do so!

The above verses are definitely telling us that not only can God heal, that not only does He want to heal – but many of the times He actually will heal if He is properly approached. So how do you properly approach God for your healing? Through prayer, which will be the next caption (see B6).

C5. Bible scripture used in prayers of healing (this is not caption B6)

If you are sick, these are some great bible scriptures to meditate on for healing. Remember God’s word is the truth. It should be more real to us than our present circumstances. Faith increases by mediating on the Word of God, so read and speak these verses many times each day.

And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the Lord, am your healer.“ Exodus 15:26

You shall be blessed above all peoples; there will be no male or female barren among you or among your cattle. “The LORD will remove from you all sickness; and He will not put on you any of the harmful diseases of Egypt which you have known, but He will lay them on all who hate you. “You shall consume all the peoples whom the Lord your God will deliver to you; your eye shall not pity them, nor shall you serve their gods, for that would be a snare to you.”If you should say in your heart, ‘These nations are greater than I; how can I dispossess them?’ you shall not be afraid of them; you shall well remember what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt: the great trials which your eyes saw and the signs and the wonders and the mighty hand and the outstretched arm by which the Lord your God brought you out. So shall the Lord your God do to all the peoples of whom you are afraid. Deuteronomy 7:14-19

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants.” Deuteronomy 30:19

No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent. For He will give His angels charge concerning you, To guard you in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands, That you do not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and cobra, The young lion and the serpent you will trample down. “Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. “He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. “With a long life I will satisfy him And let him see My salvation.” Psalm 91:10-16

Bless the Lord, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle. Psalm 103:1-5

Fools, because of their rebellious way, And because of their iniquities, were afflicted. Their soul abhorred all kinds of food, And they drew near to the gates of death. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men! Psalm 107:12-21

I will not die, but live, and tell of the works of the Lord. Psalm 118:17

Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it.” Jeremiah 1:12

Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, “I am a mighty man.” Joel 3:10

And a leper came to Him and bowed down before Him, and said, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. Matthew 8:2-3

When evening came, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed; and He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were ill. This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: “HE HIMSELF TOOK OUR INFIRMITIES AND CARRIED AWAY OUR DISEASES.” Matthew 8:16-17

B6. The Power of Prayer

It is quite obvious that God has the full, supernatural power and ability to fully heal you of any disease or sickness that could strike your body. So how do you get God to release His healing power directly to you to either heal yourself or someone else you may be praying for?

By direct prayer to God – and sometimes that prayer has to be a prevailing type of prayer, which means you keep praying to God until you get the healing to fully manifest onto the affected part of your body that needs the healing (or else God might have different plans with someone too, but we should not faint nor give up praying for the cause of healing).

There are many different types of strategies that you can take with the Lord in your own personal prayers to Him. But for the sake of this article and this caption, we will give you some specific verses that are telling us that sometimes we have to pray direct to God for a full healing to manifest.

  1. Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray.” (James 5:13)

  2. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.” (James 5:14-15)

  3. And it happened that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and dysentery. Paul went in to him and prayed, and he laid his hands on him and healed him.” (Acts 28:8)

  4. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” (James 5:16)

  5. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)

  6. Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7)

  7. Yet you do not have because you do not ask.” (James 4:2)

  8. And there is no one who calls on Your name, who stirs himself up to take hold of You …” (Isaiah 64:7)

  9. So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.” (Ezekiel 22:30)

  10. And he saw that there is not a man: and he stood astonished, because there is none to oppose himself: and his own arm brought salvation to him, and his own justice supported him.” (Isaiah 59:16)

  11. Therefore He said that He would destroy them, had not Moses His chosen one stood before Him in the breach, to turn away His wrath, lest He destroy them.” (Psalm 106:23)

Notice the last 4 verses are showing us that God is actually looking for intercessors who are willing to stand in the gap for other people who are needing God’s help in some way! And in some of these situations, these people have become sick and are needing a physical healing from the Lord. As an intercessor (mediator), you can stand in the gap for these people and pray to God for their healing.

C6. More Bible scripture used in prayers of healing (this is not caption B6)

Jesus summoned His twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness. Matthew 10:1

And large crowds came to Him, bringing with them those who were lame, crippled, blind, mute, and many others, and they laid them down at His feet; and He healed them. Matthew 15:30

And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive. Matthew 21:22

And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to perform healing. Luke 9:2

Also the people from the cities in the vicinity of Jerusalem were coming together, bringing people who were sick or afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all being healed. Acts 5:16

For this reason it is by faith, in order that it may be in accordance with grace, so that the promise will be guaranteed to all the descendants, not only to those who are of the Law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all. Romans 4:16

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness ” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Ephesians 6:10-13

For it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13

For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. Hebrews 10:23-25

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8

Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. James 4:7

This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 1 John 5:14

And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death. Revelation 12:11

B7. Having Faith and Belief That God Can Actually Heal You

Sometimes God will move to heal someone who has very low levels of faith in Him – but there will be other times that He will want this person to have his faith levels built up a bit before He will move in with His healing power.

As you will see in the following Scripture verses, there was many a time that Jesus would ask the person He was wanting to heal whether or not that person had enough faith and belief in Him that He could actually heal them. Once that person said he had enough faith in Jesus that He could fully heal him, then Jesus would move in to heal him.

Jesus would then go as far as to tell this person that his faith was what got him healed! However, it was quite obvious that what got this person healed was the power of the Holy Spirit operating and manifesting through Jesus. However, what got the healing power from the Holy Spirit to manifest onto that person was the person’s faith and belief that Jesus could actually do this for him.

This is how powerful of a thing it really is if you can get your faith operating at higher levels with the Lord. If your faith is operating at these higher levels with the Lord, then God can manifest bigger and greater miracles either to you or through you to help someone else out.

If you are looking for God’s divine healing power to fully heal you or someone else you may know – (always according to His will, not yours) the first thing you will need to try and do is to get your personal faith levels built up to a little bit of a higher range. And how do you do this?

The Bible tells us that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. Hearing the Word of God means you are reading the Bible for yourself and believing what you are reading. If you are willing to do this, then the Holy Spirit will start to raise your faith to a higher level. And once your faith has been raised to that higher level – then God may move in to heal you or someone else you may be praying for. (And of course, we must also all the time live out what we read, not only ignore it.)

You will need to read all of the verses pertaining to divine healing in the Bible. This article is giving you many of these verses. Really meditate and chew on these verses. Let them sink and settle down into you mind and spirit. Believe what you are reading.

Once these verses have really settled into your mind and spirit, and you are truly believing what they are telling you – then go into prevailing prayer with the Lord to try and get Him to move in with His healing power. Quote these Scripture verses back to Him. Tell Him that you have full faith and belief in what these verses are telling you. Tell Him that you are going to take a hold of Him and that you will not let Him go until He heals either you or someone else you may be praying for. Again, as mentioned in this article, don't forget to always end up your prayer with words similar to these: “not mine will be done, but yours, O Mighty, Loving Lord.” Remember in Daniel 10, when Daniel started to pray, he was heard from the beginning of his prayer, but nothing happened until 3 weeks later. “At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over. A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. He said, 'Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.' And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling. Then he continued, 'Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days.'Daniel 10:2-3,10-13

As we have seen from chapter 10 of Daniel, he made some mortification (e.g. fasting, abstaining from delicate foods, etc.) before he started his prayer, which is a very good thing and something recommended highly in Scriptures. He was also “highly esteemed” which means he was living a very pleasing life through his holiness and his obeying of the law of God. Study these next set of verses very carefully.

  1. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)

  2. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17)

  3. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6)

  4. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith.” (1 John 5:4)

  5. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life …” (1 Timothy 6:12)

  6. the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” And their eyes were opened. (Matthew 9:28)

  7. Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour. (Matthew 15:28)

  8. for she said to herself, “If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.” But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.” (Matthew 9:21)

  9. Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour. (Matthew 8:13)

  10. And Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?” The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight … (Mark 10:51)

  11. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” (Mark 11:24)

  12. And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.” (Acts 6:8)

  13. “… and the prophets; who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.” (Hebrews 11:32)

  14. My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouth, so that they have not hurt me … So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no injury whatever was found on him, because He believed in his God.” (Daniel 6:22)

  15. And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong … Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.” (Acts 3:16)

  16. “… but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. For we who have believed do enter that rest …” (Hebrews 4:2)

  17. So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.” (Hebrews 3:19)

  18. And He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.” (Matthew 13:58)

Notice the last 3 verses are telling us that God could not do any miracles or any mighty works with certain peoples or in certain areas due to the low levels of faith and belief operating in those areas.

The verse from Hebrews 4:2 tells us that we have to mix our faith with the Word. In other words, we have to believe what we are reading from the Bible and that all of it is true. You have to mix your faith with the knowledge that the Word is giving you! If you do not, then the knowledge that the Bible is trying to give you will not work when you need it for a real life emergency.

The verse from Hebrews 3:19 is talking about all of the Israelites 20 years and older who died out in the wilderness in the story of Moses. They were not able to enter into the Promised Land – all because they did not have enough faith and belief in God that He could actually defeat the enemies that were possessing the lands in which He was wanting to give to them.

The last verse from Matthew 13:58 is talking about Jesus not being able to do many miracles or mighty works in His own home town – and again, all due to the lack of faith and belief from the people that He actually grew up with!

All of the above verses are showing us the extreme importance of being able to get our faith operating, so our Lord can then do greater and mightier things either for you, or sometimes through you to help someone else out who may need His supernatural help and power to set them free! (But we must always strive for a holy living as the Gospels tells us, otherwise our prayers as mentioned above are worthless.)

C7. Healing Scriptures From Psalms

Psalm 30:2 “O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.”

Psalm 34:19-20 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.”

Psalm 41:1-3 “To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.”

Psalm 43:5 “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.”

Psalm 91:9-10 “Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.”

Psalm 103:1-5 “A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

Psalm 27:13-14 “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.”

Psalm 107:19-20 “Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses. He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”

Psalm 118:17 “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.”

B8. Hindrances to Receiving a Healing

Sometimes God will not move to heal someone due to some type of block or hindrance. Once this person finds out what that block or hindrance is and gets it properly removed, then many of the time God will move back in to fully heal them.

The following verses will give you some major insight into what some of these hindrances and blocks can be. Again, study these verses very carefully and make sure you do not have any of these possible hindrances before approaching God for your own personal healing. If you do have any of these blocks or hindrances operating in your life – you will be wasting both your time and God’s time if you start trying to pray for a healing before that block is properly removed.

1. The first block, and this is a major one, is the sin of unforgiveness. As you will see in the following Scripture verse, God will not even begin to hear any of your prayers if you are holding any kind of unforgiveness towards anyone. And if He will not hear any of your personal prayers – then you will have little or no chance of getting any type of divine healing from Him.

This particular sin is one that God really does not like. The fact that He specifically isolates this sin in reference to your prayer life in the following Scripture verse is showing you the extreme importance of it, and that He does not want anyone holding any unforgiveness towards anyone else – no matter how bad anyone else may have ever wronged you in your past.

There are testimony after testimony that many of the times God will not heal someone who is holding any kind of unforgiveness towards anyone else. However, once that unforgiveness has been properly taken care of and removed, then God will move in to heal that person.

If you are operating in this specific sin and are holding any type of serious grudges or unforgiveness towards anyone else – then you will need to confess this sin, and then tell Him that you will now fully forgive all of the specific people who have ever wronged you in your past. Tell Him that even though you may not “feel” like you are forgiving these people within your own mind and emotions – tell Him that you are now taking a bold step of faith and that you will make this confession with your mouth, out of your mind, and that you will do your best not to hold the past against these people. If you are willing to take this kind of powerful stand with the Lord, then God will start to take out the negative emotions of that unforgiveness, and pretty soon you will no longer even feel this unforgiveness towards that person like you had in the past. God will do inner, spiritual surgery on the inside of you to remove all of those negative feelings.

Here is the verse:

AND WHENEVER YOU STAND PRAYING, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” (Mark 11:25)

If God will not forgive your trespasses if you are operating in this sin when you are trying to pray to Him – then He may not answer any of your prayers when you are trying to pray for something specific. The four key words in the above verse is “whenever you stand praying.”

2. These next 6 verses will follow-up nicely to the above verse on unforgiveness. The first verse in this next set will tell you that if you have any kind of “iniquities” that you may be operating in, then this will cause God to hide His face from you and that He will then not “hear” you when you try and pray to Him.

If you are out cheating on your spouse operating in the sin of adultery, then God may not hear any of your prayers (except those where you ask Him to help you stop sinning). And if God is not hearing any of your prayers to Him, then you may not be able to receive a divine healing from Him when you try asking Him for one. So if you are really serious about wanting to approach God for a divine healing, the first thing you must do is make sure that you do not have any sins that may need to be forgiven and washed clean under the Blood of Jesus (confession). You may want to ask the Holy Spirit to help you out. Ask Him to show you if there are any sins that you may not be aware of that will need to be confessed, forgiven, and washed clean under the blood of Jesus.

If you are willing to go this far with the Lord, then you may have just removed any major blocks or hindrances in being able to receive a divine healing from Him. You may have just dramatically increased your chances of now being able to receive a direct healing from God.

Here are the verses. Notice the specific wording in some of these verses – that God will “hear the prayer of the righteous” but that He is “far from the wicked”, that no good thing will He withhold from those who are walking “uprightly,“ that we will receive answers to our prayers if we “keep His commandments and do them,” and that He will put “none of these diseases on you” if you “do what is right in His sight and keep all His statutes.” Keep these kinds of verses front and center in your walk with the Lord so that you do not do anything that will prevent Him from wanting to work full force in your own personal walk with Him.

  1. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.” (Isaiah 59:2)

  2. The Lord is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous.” (Proverbs 15:29)

  3. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” (Psalm 84:11)

  4. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.” (1 John 3:22)

  5. My son, do not forget My law, but let your heart keep My commands; for length of days and long life and peace they will add to you.” (Proverbs 3:1)

  6. If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.” (Exodus 15:26)

I believe all of these verses are giving us major insight as to why sometimes we are not getting answers to some of our prayers, especially in the area of divine healing. There is simply no sugarcoating what these verses are trying to tell us. Even though all of our past, present and future sins will be fully forgiven under the blood of Jesus (that is when we confess), we still have to make every concerted effort on our end to try and stay out of sin. And once we know that we have fallen into a specific sin, then we have to recognize it and admit it before the Lord, and then confess it out to Him as a sin before we can receive His forgiveness for it.

One of the main reasons why more people do not receive divine healings from the Lord may be due to sins that may not have yet been forgiven because they have not been recognized as actual sins, or that person is unwilling to have their sins be properly dealt with by God. A person may be operating in the sin of adultery and he simply does not want to give it up. And until he does, God will not be hearing any of his prayers. This is why we strongly recommend that anyone who is seeking after a major, supernatural miracle from God in the area of divine healing – that you ask the Holy Spirit to help you out in discovering what those sins may be that will need to be confessed and forgiven with God. This principle right here may be the difference as to whether or not you receive a full, divine healing from the Lord.

C8. Healing Miracles of Jesus Christ according to the Gospel of Luke

And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered. And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him. But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth. Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it? And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.” (Luke 6:6-10)

And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus’ feet, and besought him that he would come into his house: For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him. And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace. While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master. But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole. And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise. And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat. And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.” (Luke 8:41-56)

And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child. And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him. And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not. And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither. And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.” (Luke 9:38-42)

B9. Psychological Factors

Sometimes there are psychological factors that will come into play when dealing with different types of sicknesses and illnesses. If someone is severely depressed, there is a good chance that the immune system may not be working as well as it should be, and they thus can be more subject and prone to getting certain types of sicknesses or diseases as compared to someone who is always upbeat, happy, cheerful and doing something positive with their lives to the glory of God.

The medical profession has already found this link – that sometimes good health can be directly related to having a good, positive mindset. The Bible has several very interesting verses on this mind-body connection and how it can relate to our physical health. Here they are:

  1. A sound heart is life to the body, but envy is rottenness to the bones.” (Proverbs 14:30)

  2. Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.” (Proverbs 13:12)

  3. A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.” (Proverbs 15:13)

  4. A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22)

  5. Anxiety in the heart of a man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.” (Proverbs 12:25)

  6. There is one who speaks like the piercings of a sword, but the tongue of the wise promotes health.” (Proverbs 12:18)

  7. Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.” (Proverbs 16:24)

Notice the first verse says that “envy is rottenness to the bones.” This is why the Bible tells us that we are transformed by the “renewing of our minds.” God wants to develop and put right thinking into our minds. Having a good, positive mindset (and a clear conscience) in the Lord may be one of the secrets in being able to have good, physical health while we are living down here on this earth.

C9. The Blood of Jesus Christ is a weapon for the believer

Friends, there is healing and power in the blood of Jesus. You see, God was always appeased by the blood of rams, bulls, doves etc in the Old Testament days - BUT when Jesus Christ came, HE offered His own blood which did not just appease but totally satisfy God. We have access to the power of the blood through Jesus Christ. Look below at some of the glorious benefits of the blood of Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior.

  • We have forgiveness of our sins:

      Matthew 26:28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

      Hebrews 9:22-10:4 In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. It was necessary, then, for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with human hands that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence. Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own. Otherwise Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But he has appeared once for all at the culmination of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself. Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship. Otherwise, would they not have stopped being offered? For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins. But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins. It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.

      1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

      Revelation 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,

      Romans 8:1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,

  • Healing through the blood:

      Isaiah 53 Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished. He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand. After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

  • People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood:

      Romans 3:25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—

  • Justified by his blood:

      Romans 5:9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!

      Leviticus 17:11 For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.

B10. The Sin of Gluttony

There are many in our society who are grossly overweight. This weight gain is the result of simply gluttony – overeating and overeating any kind of food, also of the wrong kinds of foods too. With all of the good, nutritional information that is now available, we all know what these bad foods are. There is also a ton of educational material that is out there showing us what the good foods are and how to structure our diets accordingly to take off a lot of this excess weight.

However, for whatever their personal reasons may be (due to their lack of faith), many people who are overweight simply do not care they are overeating and that they are grossly overweight. God may have been striving with them, trying to get them to get their eating habits under better control. However, sooner or later, the human body can only take so much abuse, especially in the area of what we feed it – and then the breakdown comes. A cancer could set in or a major heart attack could occur. There are many different kinds of sicknesses and illnesses that can strike your body if you do not properly feed it and take proper care of it.

The Bible tells us that our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. As such, I believe God wants us taking proper care of them. If we do not, and we steadfastly refuse to heed His warnings and promptings – then God may choose not to want to heal you if you end up coming down with a major sickness as a result of deliberately overeating and abusing your body over all of those years. The same thing can occur for those who drink past any reasonable moderation. In our walk with the Lord, we have to do the best we can with what we are suppose to be doing for Him. However, where we will get in trouble is when we start to go past our own individual, if that should happen, then God will start giving you major warning signs and signals that you are getting to far off base. If after a certain amount of time you do not heed those warnings and you keep going in the direction you are going – then God could pull back His hand of protection on you, and you could then end up coming down with a major sickness or disease.

Remember – some of the above verses state that if you do what is right in the sight of the Lord – then He will not put any of these diseases on you. Going against the Lord by overeating and abusing your body is not doing what is right in the Lord, and He thus could pull back His hand of protection on you and your life. (Remember this too, all according to His will though, because sometimes we can receive one or other sickness due to our sins or for any other reason known to God.)

We will leave you with one very interesting verse that tells us to only eat what we really need lest we be filled with it and vomit. In other words, you can get physically sick by overeating.

Have you found honey? Eat only as much as you need, lest you be filled with it and vomit.” (Proverbs 25:16)

C10. More verses of The Blood of Jesus Christ is a weapon for the believer

  • A new covenant is set and sealed by the blood:

      1 Corinthians 11:25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

      Hebrews 9:18-20 This is why even the first covenant was not put into effect without blood. When Moses had proclaimed every command of the law to all the people, he took the blood of calves, together with water, scarlet wool and branches of hyssop, and sprinkled the scroll and all the people. He said, “This is the blood of the covenant, which God has commanded you to keep.”

  • Redemption is through His blood:

      Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace

      Revelation 5:9 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.

  • We are brought near to God through the blood of Christ:

      Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

      Psalm 24 The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters. Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god. They will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God their Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob. Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is he, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty—he is the King of glory.

  • The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses our conscience from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God:

      Hebrews 9:11-14 But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that are now already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with human hands, that is to say, is not a part of this creation. He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!

  • Gives us the confidence to enter the Most Holy Place:

      Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,

  • The blood speaks better things:

      Hebrews 12:24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

  • The Blood has resurrection power:

      Hebrews 13:20 Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep,

  • We overcome our adversary by the blood of Jesus Christ:

      Revelation 12:11 They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.

  • Peace by means of the blood:

      Colossians 1:20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

  • Please read:

      Revelation 19:11-16 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

  • The shedding of the blood:

      John 19:
      The 39 whips - for Healing:

        John 19:1 Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged.
      The thorny crown - for Restoration:
        John 19:2 The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head.
      At the cross - for Reconciliation:
        John 19:18 There they crucified him,

      Revelation 12:10-11 "And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."

B11. God is Still Sovereign in All of His Ways

If you closely study all of the above verses from Scripture – the evidence is absolutely overwhelming that God really does want to heal many of the times if He is properly approached in your prayers to Him. Granted, there are times that God may want your faith operating at a higher level than where you may be at right now. If that is the case, then He may want you getting more into the Word to study all of the verses pertaining to divine healing before He will move in to heal you. You also could have some type of sin as discussed above that needs to be taken care of before He will move in to heal you.

But what about the Christian who is already operating at a very high level of faith? How do you explain it when they are doing everything right in the Lord, and then all of a sudden they need a physical healing for their own self and God does not heal them. How do you explain this kind of scenario with the way all of the above Scripture verses are worded?

God is still sovereign in all of His ways – which will include when He will manifest the gift of healing on someone. The Bible says that we can only know in part while living down here on this earth. Sometimes God will tell us why He does what He does and other times He will not. If God makes a personal decision not to heal someone when they are properly approaching Him in prayer for their healing – then I believe there is always a specific reason as to why He is choosing not to heal this person at that time. Sometimes He will tell you what that reason may be and other times He will not. If He chooses not to tell you, then you have to have full faith and belief that He must have a very good reason for not wanting to heal you or the person you may be praying for and to let it go at that.

There could be a multitude of reasons why God may choose not to heal someone. Here's an example. A woman had been praying for her son’s healing. He was only 10 years old and he came down with an incurable disease and was only given a short time to live. God kept telling her that He did not want to heal him and that she was to let the matter go. The woman would not take no for an answer and kept pressing into God that He heal her son. Due to her continued persistence, God finally healed the woman’s son. However, her testimony ended stating that she lived just long enough to watch her son get hanged as a criminal for a murder he ended up committing when he was 41 years old.

God obviously knew what his future held in store for him. He knew that he was going to end up committing this murder. God was actually showing incredible love and mercy by wanting to take him home early with the incurable disease instead of letting him live long enough to commit this horrible murder. His mother obviously could not see into his future or understand the big picture, and she thus should have never been questioning God’s knowledge and wisdom on this matter in the first place, since God knew what was going to happen in this boy’s future and she did not.

Bottom line – God always knows best! Let His perfect will be done in all matters – which will include who He will decide to heal and who He will not decide to heal.

Many people have had their mind’s really messed up when for whatever reason God has chosen not to heal them, and then another Christian comes along and starts trying to place a guilt trip on them – telling them that either their faith was not operating at a high enough level, or that there must be something in their personal life that is preventing God from wanting to heal them. As stated above, sometimes this may be true, but other times it may not be true. If there are no blocks or hindrances in that person’s life, then God is choosing not to heal for another reason.

If you are not getting a healing for either yourself, or someone else you may be praying for, then ask Him why He is not moving in to heal either you or the other person you may be praying for. Ask Him to show you if there are any blocks or hindrances that have to be dealt with. If He comes back and tells you that there are no blocks or hindrances that have to be dealt with, but that He has chosen not to heal at this time – then trust that He has a very good reason for not wanting to move in with His healing power and let it go at that. It could be that it may be that person’s time to go home to be with Him, even if that person is still at a young age like the story described above.

We will end this caption with one very good verse from Scripture that is telling us that God will have mercy on whom He chooses to have mercy on. This is one of the verses from Scripture that is really emphasizing the sovereignty of God and that no one is going to tell Him how to run His universe.

For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion …” Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills … But indeed, O’ man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, “Why have you made me like this?” Does not the potter have power over the clay …” (Romans 9:15-21)

B12. Conclusion

Though there are times God will decide not to heal for whatever His personal reasons may be – there are definitely going to be other times that He will move in to heal if He is properly approached in your prayers to Him. Since God is sovereign in His very nature and in all of His ways – this means you never know when He may move in to heal someone. This is why you should never be afraid to approach God’s throne boldly and with confidence if either you or someone else you know is needing a physical healing from Him. You have nothing to lose in trying and everything to gain by pressing in. It would be a strong recommendation that you type or handwrite out all of the Scripture verses listed in this article and put them on index cards. If you are willing to do this, then you will have right at your fingertips all of the major healing verses of the Bible to use in your own personal, healing prayers to God. Just simply pick the verses that will apply to the specific situation that you may be dealing with, and then storm the gates of heaven asking God to move in to heal based upon the wording of many of these verses. God loves it when you quote His own Word back to Him. This shows Him that you have been doing your homework (when you also remove sin from your life by doing what He commands us in the Scriptures, not just only reading and thinking one can do what he likes), and that you are seeking to learn more about Him and this subject by studying and meditating on these kinds of verses (and seeking advice from a holy and good Christian). This kind of intense, seeking activity may be just enough to get God to want to heal you or the person you may be praying for!

Matthew 6:5-8 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Matthew 7:7-12 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

Matthew 10:37-42 “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it. “Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward. And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”

Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.

Matthew 19:16-30 Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?” “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.” “Which ones?” he inquired. Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’” “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?” Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?” Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.

Matthew 22:34-40 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Matthew 25:31-46 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Matthew 28:19-20 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
