What Does The Bible Say About HEALING & PHYSICIANS?
(MATT 8:13) And Jesus answered the centurion, Go your way, and as you have believed it will be done for you. And his servant was healed in the same hour.
(MATT 9:21-22) And she said to herself, if I but touch his garment I will be healed. And Jesus turned seeing her said, Daughter be of good comfort, for your faith has made you whole. And the woman was healed in that hour.
(MATT 15:28) And Jesus said to her, Woman great is your faith, have it be as you will. And her daughter was healed that very hour.
(MATT 18:19) Again I say to you, that if two of you agree and touch any thing on earth, anything they ask will be done by my Father in heaven.
(MARK 5:34) And he said to her, Daughter your faith has made you whole, go in peace and be rid of your plague.
(MARK 10:52) And Jesus said, Go your way, your faith has made you whole. Immediately he received his sight.
(JAMES 5:13-14) Are there any among you that are distressed? let him pray. Are any happy among you? let him sing songs of praise. Are there any among you sick? let him call for the elders of the church that they may pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of our Lord.
The thing to see in these scriptures is an unwavering faith that they would be healed. Not only do you have to believe that you will be healed but you must have patience in waiting for it to happen. If you feel you might lack the faith needed have your minister anoint you and pray for you with the congregation, for the faith of many can achieve much. But remember that illness is part of the human experience and is due largely to our own created environment and the foods we eat being unhealthy for us.
Whenever Jesus could do no mighty works, it was because of the peoples unbelief. It takes belief / faith!
(1 JOHN 3:22) And what ever we ask we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
(SIR 38:1-15) Honor the physician with the honor due him, according to your need of him, for the Lord created him; for healing comes from God .... the skill of the physician lifts up his head, and in the presence of great men he is admired. The Lord created medicines from the earth, and a sensible man will not despise them. Was not water made sweet with a tree in order that his power might be known? And he gave skill to men that he might be glorified in his marvelous works. By them he heals and takes away pain; the pharmacist makes of them a compound. His works will never be finished, and from him health is upon the face of the earth. My son, when you are sick do not be negligent, but pray to the Lord, and he will heal you .... And give the physician his place, for the Lord created him; let him not leave you, for there is need of him. There is a time when success lies in the hands of physicians, for they to will pray to the Lord that he should grant them success in rest and healing, for the sake of preserving life. He who sins before his maker, may he fall into the care of a physician.
It is always advisable to see a physician when your condition is serious, and handle it accordingly for the Lord also created Physicians to help heal, just remember not to put all your faith in the physician alone.
If your faith is not healing you, are you doing as I John 3:22 says?
