Divine Healing Is SpiritualJune 27, 2019
Divine healing, though it is manifested in the physical, is spiritual. It is not mental, as Christian Science and other metaphysical teachers claim. Now don't misunderstand me. People get some results through mental science. The mind does, to a great extent, control the body, and a person could get some results that way.God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
I know people who seemed to be miraculously healed through metaphysical cults. And I've heard people say, "If they're healed, God must have done it."
But, no, not necessarily. If it's mental healing, their minds produced it. I would rather stay sick and not be healed than to be healed through some unbelieving cult.
Metaphysical religions such as Christian Science are not biblical. They believe that God is mind, and, in effect, that their mind is God. They believe that Jesus Christ is an idea in the divine mind of God and that He did not actually come in the flesh. And if you hold that idea in your mind, they say, it will produce certain results.
First John 4:2 says, "Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God." When I talk about the Lord Jesus Christ, I'm not talking about some idea; I'm talking about the Son of God!
Jesus Christ of Nazareth came in the flesh and walked the shores of Galilee. When I talk about God, I'm not talking about my mind or your mind or someone else's mind! I'm talking about a divine Personality - the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Divine, scriptural healing is not mental as Christian Science and other metaphysical teachers think; it's spiritual. Neither is it physical, as the medical world teaches.
