Jesus' power to heal is available to all who believe
How did Jesus heal? What did He want of the patients? This is another key to divine health and wholeness living.
The key truth: Jesus clearly stated that He is the Physician who heals those who are sick and the God who has power on earth to forgive sins. (Luke 5:31-32) All who actually believed what Jesus said were healed.
Oftentimes He just preached and taught the multitudes and the power of the Lord was present to heal them! Luke 5:15
Here are some verses spoken by Jesus and they revealed the truth that set free!
_________Bible verses (NKJV) are taken from the Gospel According to Luke, chapters 4-6: describing the behavior, attitude, belief of the 'patients' who came to Jesus for healing.
4:32-33 a man with an unclean demon cried out in the presence of Jesus who was teaching, for His word was with authority. The man was listening to His word.
5:12 a man full of leprosy saw Jesus and fell on his face and spoke out his faith in Jesus' power and authority to heal. He acknowledged his uncleanness and need of cleansing, saying "Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean."
5:15 great multitudes came together to hear Jesus' teaching and to be healed by Him of their infirmities. They believed in the power of the word Jesus spoke to heal them.
5:25 a paralyzed man believed his sins were forgiven because Jesus said so, and obeyed the command of Jesus to rise up and take up his bed and walked back to his own house.
5:27-28 a sinner (tax collector) Levi was saved from his sins by obeying the command of Jesus to follow Him. He left all, rose up, and followed Him.
6:10 a man with a withered right hand believed in Jesus' authority to override that of the synagogue authority (based on Moses Law), and obeyed Jesus' command to stretch out his hand on Sabbath.
6:17-19 "great multitude of people came to hear Him and be healed of their diseases, as well as those tormented with unclean spirits. And they were all healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out of Him and healed them all."
The patients came, heard His word, believed the word, and even touched Him (encountered His power)! Power came out of Jesus as He preached the word. They believed and were healed.
