Is Jesus Healing Today?
Healing Bible Study Lesson 2

Why has the idea of Jesus healing today become so controversial?

There are churches and ministries out there who have begun to teach the children of God that our Heavenly Father actually makes us sick.

They say that He has given you cancer or depression to teach you something. That He allowed that abuse to take place to somehow make you a better Christian. Imagine if you were accused of causing this kind of pain and turmoil in the lives of your own children!

And yet, in the Bible, we never read about God making His own people sick. We only learn about Him healing them.

Could God Be the Cause and Cure for Your Pain?

There was an instance when people thought that Jesus was casting out demons through the help of a demon prince (Matt 12, Luke 11). Jesus explained that this would be impossible because the one who put the demon in would not also be the one who casts it out.

Any kingdom that is divided against itself
is being brought to desolation and laid waste.
-Matthew 12:25 (AMP)

Wouldn’t this also apply in the area of Jesus healing the sick?

Just a quick look through the book of Matthew proves that Jesus was definitely in the physical and emotional healing business. Was He going around taking away sickness and turmoil if He indeed was the author of them?

That would mean that the Kingdom of heaven is divided against itself and therefore doomed.

Of course, this is not the case. God is not going around giving small children leukemia. Jesus tell you:

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.
My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
- John 10:10 (NLT)

That rich and satisfying life is God’s will for you. He is not the one who wants you hurting physically or emotionally. It is your enemy who is the thief.

Satan wants to steal your peace. He wants to steal your joy. He wants to steal your vitality. He wants to steal your life.

"For I know the plans I have for you,"
declares the LORD,
"plans to prosper you
and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope
and a future."
-Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

Isn’t that exciting! God actually has plans for your life – And they are good! He does not want you sick, and He did not make you sick. He wants you well, and He is making you well!

Jesus is still healing today!

Reflection Questions

1. Have you ever been taught that God causes sickness and pain in order to teach you something? Do you believe that? Why or why not?

2. What benefit do you think that Satan gets from trying to keep you from your healing? Are there things that you would like to be able to do for God but can not? How is your pain benefiting your enemy's kingdom?

I hope that you truly believe now that Jesus can and will heal you. But, there is more to receiving your healing than just believing. You will have to fight the enemy for your wholeness. Find out in Lesson 3 how to use God’s powerful Word as your sword.
