The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Does sickness steal?
Does sickness destroy?
Does sickness kill?
The answer to each of these questions is yes. Sickness could not have come from God. To say He would be the source of it then is to imply He is working in partnership with Satan. We know this cannot be true!
In our previous post we referenced the healing anointing. This often works in conjunction with laying on of hands. At other times we lay hands on the sick in faith.
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers.
God will never favor one person over another. Just as He gave some to be apostles and others to be prophets so also He anoints some specifically with the healing anointing. This is just a part of the distribution of His anointings in the body of Christ.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
All believers can minister to the sick. Jesus said that we can “lay hands on the sick” and that they would “recover”.
God does anoint some believers with a special healing anointing but this does not exclude every believer from laying hands on the sick in faith. Jesus was anointed to minister to the sick.
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Jesus was anointed. He had a tangible anointing that enabled Him to minister in the miraculous. We are called to walk by faith but there can be such a manifestation of healing power to the point of our being able to feel it. I believe this is what happened often in Jesus’ ministry.
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.
This woman approached Jesus in faith. She expected to be healed. When her faith came into contact with Jesus’ healing anointing a miracle occurred. Jesus “felt” the power when it was released. This was a tangible manifestation of healing power.
We can lay hands on the sick in faith. This is part of what is known as the Great Commission and we saw it in Mark 16.
We can also place a tangible demand on the healing anointing through our faith. The healing of the woman with the issue of blood is an example of this.
