With the coming of Jesus Christ the new testament believer
in Christ also has access to healing by faith according to the will of the Farther.
The foundation for this truth is located in the following scriptures.
By His strips we were healed Isaiah 53:4-5,
“Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.”
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
and by His Stripes we are healed.”
& 1 Peter 2:24
“…who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. ”
For those who believe, each of the 39 stripes, which Jesus Christ endured just before His crucifixion, each represent a different major disease category, which we have been redeemed from. Here follows the classifications of different major disease categories:
1. Infectious disorders
2. Infertility disorders

How to pray for healing?
Watch the following video for one example.
Here are 10 ways the church can release God’s healing power:
Now let us go together in that might. Genesis 12:1-3
Why healing did not take place?
Most of the time we lack understanding.
Here is one example:
The second-century Christian apologist Justin Martyr mentions a popular obsession with Asclepius among his contemporaries, saying: “When the Devil brings forward Asclepius as the raiser of the dead and healer of all diseases, may I not say that in this matter likewise, he has imitated the prophecies about Christ?” (Justin Martyr, Dialogue with Trypho, the Jew, 69) Likewise, in a statement attributed to the second-century Jewish sage, Rabbi Akiva, we read: “Once Akiva was asked to explain why persons afflicted with disease sometimes returned cured from a pilgrimage to the shrine of an idol, though it was surely powerless.” (Babylonian Talmud, Avodah Zarah 55a) The Pool of Bethesda (Asclepion in Jerusalem branch) was probably part of the Hellenization of Jerusalem, along with several other important projects which included a Roman theater and a Roman bathhouse. It is probably in reference to such Hellenization of Jerusalem that Qumranite Jewish devotees (Essenes were the main opponents of the Pharisees), in their commentary on the Prophet Nahum, wrote: “Jerusalem… had become a dwelling for the wicked ones of the Gentiles…” (4QpNah)
In that case, the pool of Bethesda (“house of mercy” in Hebrew) may not have been a Jewish site at all, but may rather have been a Greek Asclepion-affiliated facility. It is very important to notice that in the healing recorded in chapter five of John’s Gospel, Jesus does not command the one He healed to wash himself in the pool (of Bethesda), while in the story of the healing of the blind man in chapter nine, he did issue a direct command to go and wash at the pool of Siloam. (Jn. 9:6-7) It, therefore, appears that while the pool of Bethesda was a pagan place (an Asclepion), the pool of Siloam was indeed connected with the Jerusalem Temple.
But what about the part of the text (included in some manuscripts) that mentions an angel of the Lord stirring the waters?
[… waiting for the moving of the waters; for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.]
It seems that some Christian copyist, unfamiliar with the cult of Asclepius and the Pool of Bethesda’s affiliation with it, added the explanation about an angel of the Lord stirring up the waters in an attempt to clarify things for his readers. All of our earliest manuscripts omit this verse. While trying to help his readers, the scribe, unfortunately, sent all subsequent generations of readers in the wrong interpretive direction, missing the whole point of the story. The stirring up of the water was part of a ceremony when the priests of the Asclepius temple opened the connecting pipes between the higher and the lower portions of the pool. Because one set of pipes was higher than the other, this caused a “stirring” of the water in the pool. The water in the upper reservoir would flow into the lower portion of the pool, but a 4-5 century Christian scribe would not know that. This is an excellent illustration of the importance of recapturing a first-century, Jewish perspective on the Scriptures,
For those who still doubt that God is good and still a healer today.
Science can now prove miracles and that man was made in the image of God with the power to create with only words. Romans 4:16-18
Training in Healing….. and finally:
How much faith do you need?
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:20
Watch this next video and agree to do what the apostles did. John 14:12
Take Holy Communion in the home.
(Matthew 26:26-28). Believers today observe the Lord’s Supper as a symbol of cleansing, consecration, and communion.
When a believer receives salvation, he is consecrated – or set apart to the Lord. His sin is forgiven, and he receives eternal life as well as the indwelling Holy Spirit. But if he at times forgets that he belongs to the Lord, he may give in to temptation. The bread and the cup provide an opportunity to remember what the Father expects of His children and to renew one’s commitment to obey.
The Lord’s Supper is also a time to be in communion. We are connected not only with the Lord who saved us but also with past and present believers. Among members of God’s family, we find comfort and support, just as the disciples and the early church did.
The Lord’s Supper is a good time to stop and recall what Jesus has given us. Partake solemnly and gratefully.
Healing is one of the benefits of taking Holy communion in your own home. Watch the following video to stir up your faith
Healing? No signs? No condemnation for those in Christ. The whole truth.
The ministry of many Christians never reaches its full potential
because of poor teaching and support. Poor teachers of the word say, without saying a word,
“if you were sent by God, signs (Mark 16:17-18) would follow” (their action or lack of action to be more accurate betray them); but look at what John had to say about this:
And He went away again beyond the Jordan to the place where John was baptizing at first, and there He stayed. 41 Then many came to Him and said, “John performed no sign, but all the things that John spoke about this Man were true.”
Let me encourage each of you not carry the unspoken condemnation of anyone but march forward in the zeal of the Lord.
Faith to heal based on knowledge
There are challenges common to all believers that seek to be used by God to deliver others.
Not only did God give us His Holy Spirit to help and teach us things pertaining to life and Godliness but He also gave us the fivefold ministry to help equip us for the work of the ministry,
I therefore recommend that you access the sound counsel and case studies of well grounded teachers to continue to build a wealth of experience which will provide the assurance to overcome every circumstance that you may be presented with.
