In the future world that God has planned for us, there will be no more pain or suffering or death. This demonstrates that God really cares about our health and does not want us to struggle with pain and disease. God also has the supernatural power to miraculously heal us:

• “For I am the Lord who heals you.” Exodus 15:26
• “He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.” Psalm 103:3

Jesus’ Supernatural Healing Ministry

Jesus healed many people supernaturally. Jesus spent more time healing people than He did teaching.

• Jesus’ supernatural healing ministry was prophesied by Isaiah over 600 years before He was born. Isaiah 35:1-10
• He healed people who had highly contagious diseases like leprosy. Luke 5:12-16
• He healed people who had chronic diseases like being crippled, deaf, dumb and blind. Matthew 15:29-31
• He released people from the power of Satan. Luke 8:26-39
• He healed people on the Sabbath to free them from their pain and disease. John 5:1-17
Many people were attracted to Jesus because of His supernatural power to heal them.

Joining Jesus’ Healing Team

Jesus expanded His healing ministry by sending His followers out to also heal people. He told His followers, “Heal the sick, and tell them,The Kingdom of God is near you now.’” Luke 10:8

You can be part of Jesus’ healing team in the following simple ways:

• Listen to people’s worries and what causes them pain.
• Pray in faith for Jesus’ healing power in their lives.
• Encourage them to trust God and put His health principles into practice.

Divine Health Principles

Jesus’ healing ministry demonstrates that God created us and understands how our bodies work best. The Bible says, “You made all the
delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Psalm 139:13

C hoice is the first step towards health and wellbeing.
