Healing & Health are Good Things from a Good God

If God is the same and hasn’t changed then His will to heal the sick is the same and hasn’t changed. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. For I am the Lord, I change not – Heb 13:8; Mal 3:6. There is not one recorded case where Jesus or His follower’s had to seek God’s will before healing the sick. This is because healing and health, not sickness, is always God’s will. On two occasions Jesus said “I will” when asked to heal. The leper came to Jesus saying, Lord if you are willing, You can make me clean, Jesus put forth His hand, and touched him, saying, I will; you are clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed – Mat 8:2-3. When the centurion came to Jesus and asked Him to heal his paralyzed servant Jesus said, I will come and heal him – Mat 8:5-7. Jesus expressed God’s will by saying “I will” heal. God is no respecter of persons – Act 10:34; Rom 2:11. He shows no favoritism, partiality or discrimination. If He healed the leper and the Centurion’s paralyzed servant, He will heal all who come to Him today. All that the Father gives me will come to me; and those that come to me I will in no way cast out – Joh 6:37.  God is obligated to confirm His Word by healing those who come to Him. God’s will is found in His Word, I am the Lord that heals you. Who heals all your diseases – Exo 15:26; Psa 103:3. Health is normal. The word “sick” is defined as: to be unwell, the condition of being ill, to suffer from or affected with physical illness. The word “disease” is defined as: a physical impairment that interferes with normal bodily function, the quality or state of being enfeebled and weakened in health. Both sickness and disease are abnormal. At Jesus’ birth the angels revealed that God’s will for man is only good. Behold, I bring you good tidings (good news) of great joy, which will be to all people. Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will (good purpose) toward all people – Luk 2:10; 2:14. Good news and good will or purpose for man surely cannot include sickness. Nothing evil or bad ever comes from God. Only good things come from God. The Lord is good. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights – Lam 3:25; Jam 1:17. God has given His greatest gift to all men, eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ. The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord – Rom 6:23. Healing & health are good things from a good God!
