Lesson 16 - Divine Healing (Part 1)
Terms in this set (9)
the healing received by a person through faith, who when he becomes physically ill, places all his hope upon God, who is the Lord both for the body and the soul. Since such people trust in God alone, they do not turn to doctors or resort to medicines.
What is Divine Healing?
Though the body of man is corruptible, his soul is eternal. Therefore the Lord first begins the work of healing in the inner man of a person who waits upon God for his physical healing. In other words, divine healing begins in the soul. The apostle saying, "... I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth" (III John 2) can refer to this.
Where does the Lord first begin the work of healing in a child of God who is waiting for Divine Healing? Write one scripture reference.
1. In Exodus 15:26 God says, "I am the Lord that healeth thee". Therefore the healing of the children of God should not be through medicine.
2. In II Chronicles 16:12, it is written that in his sickness, Asa, "sought not to the Lord but to the physicians". From this we understand that the Scripture does not approve of our resorting to medicine.
Do the scriptures approve of our resorting to medicine for healing? Explain.
1. Confessing faults one to another and praying one for another (James 5:16).
2. Calling the elders of the Church (James 5:14,15).
3. Praying for others who are in trouble (Job 42:10).
What are the ways in which the children of God receive Divine Healing?
No. When God performs miracles, they can be healed instantly. But instantaneous healing is not a must.
1. St. Paul left Trophimus sick at Miletus (II Tim. 4:20)
2. St. Paul was given a thorn in the flesh. In spite of his praying thrice, he received no immediate deliverance (II Cor. 12:7-9).
Do the sick always receive instantaneous healing? Write with examples.
1. Faith is built up.
2. It helps to know and realize our sins, and cleanse ourselves and to be reconciled to one another.
3 Fear of God increases.
What are the benefits of waiting for Divine Healing?
When God made man, medicine was not in His plan. He provided man only with food to eat and water to drink. Before man committed sin, he was not sick. As there is deliverance from sin through Calvary, the death of the Lord on Calvary is sufficient also for the healing of sickness, which is the result of sin. Therefore, resorting to medicine for sickness is not the counsel of God.
It is not the counsel of God that a child of God should resort to medicine for sickness. Explain.
Lack of hygiene, gluttony, addiction to evil habits like consuming tobacco, alcohol,drugs and transgressing the laws of nature.
Sin and disobedience (Deu. 28:15,22,.27)
Direct affliction of Satan (Job 2:7)
Trial of faith (I Pet. 1:7).
As a chasticement of God (Num. 12:1 -10; II Kings 5:22-27; I Cor. 11:29,30).
What are the main causes for one to fall sick?
a. The household of Abimelech healed by Abraham's prayer (Gen.20:17,18).
b. Miriam's leprosy healed by Moses' prayer (Num.12:13-15).
c. Those bitten by the fiery serpents lived when they looked to the serpent of brass made by Moses. (Num. 21:6-9)
d. Jesus healed the sick who came to Him. (Matt. 8:16).
e. The apostles healed the sick (Acts 5:15,16; 14:8-10).
Write five instances of healing of the sick as mentioned in the scriptures.
