Jesus' Healings Were SpiritualJune 29, 2017
It's a remarkable fact that when Jesus came on the scene as Healer, He demanded faith again and again. To the woman with the issue of blood, He declared, "Thy faith has made thee whole" (Mark 5:34).And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.
To the man who came with his lunatic son, Jesus said, "...If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth" (Mark 9:23). You see, the man came to Jesus and said, "If thou canst do anything, have mercy on us and help us" (Mark 9:22).
Jesus said to him, in so many words, "It's not so much a matter of what I can do as it is of what you can believe. All things are possible to him that believeth."
To the nobleman who came on behalf of his son, Jesus said, "...Go thy way; thy son liveth..." (John 4:50). The man believed the word that Jesus spoke unto him, and he went on his way. He believed the words of Jesus, and his son was healed.
All of these scriptures prove this fact: Jesus' healings were spiritual. He demanded faith, and faith is born of the spirit.
