Today, points are shared on healing, miracles, and the ongoing revelation that is Christian belief.  As the appearance of GOD in flesh (we say, incarnate), Jesus Christ healed because men needed healing for the body, the mind, and the spirit; and many ceaselessly petitioned for healing in their prayers to GOD.  Healing continues to be practiced as a natural device for ministry to make visible the necessary unity of flesh and Spirit.  Those who argue against divine law and divine love also argue that healing miracles are interference and attacks by divinity to discredit self-will within created beings and living creatures.  The writer at “Yahoo!

Religion and Spirituality..Did Jesus heal with miracles so people would believe in him, or so believers could learn from him and also heal?

Update : I think it’s the latter

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.  Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:  Which none of the princes of this world knew:  for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.  But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.  But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit:  for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.  For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God:  for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  (1st Corinthians 2:  5-14, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Healing is By Relationship? (09/27/2014); Miracles Are From GOD (03/14/2014); Giving Forgiveness? (03/15/2014); “Prayer Death”? (02/21/2014); The 2nd Prayer Death (02/22/2014); Miracles are Sacred Events (12/20/2013); Resisting Sin (02/21/2013); Naaman the Leper (12/21/2012); Did Jesus Know? (12/22/2012)

 

“Hope is certainty”, here are a few points on divine healing and miracles that are also important to mature Christian believers:

(1.)  The Savior demonstrated the divine power to heal as a further aspect of the full ongoing revelation of divinity to all created beings and living creatures.  The sacred process of salvation is not simply forgiveness for sin, it is also an introduction of new covenants and mechanisms for relationship with Deity, the cancellation of penalties resulting from sin, the fulfillment of divine obligations and promises, a provision for atonement and spiritual transformation as well as a rebirth that erases the effects and consequences of sin.

(2.)  Miracles are lawful sacred events through operations upon natural order that provide a further revelation of the authority, power, sovereignty and wisdom that are to be recognized describing the personal nature of divinity.  Miracles accompany prophecy and sacred proclamations as the divine seal and signature proving authenticity, genuineness, legitimacy and validity.  While miracles may result from operations of a believer’s faith, a believer’s faith is not always affirmed and increased by miracles.  Many are challenged, confused, and made fearful by extraordinary, or supernatural events that may be taken as occult.  Others become spiritually combative, disbelieving, intractable, skeptical, and stubborn.

(3.)  Through baptism (death of ones inborn spirit, rebirth from spirit content imparted by GOD) the makeup of believers in Jesus is permanently changed.  Believers are equipped to discern, recognize and respond to the active presence of GOD, and the multiple operations of the Holy Spirit.  Yet, all continue within the same carnal, physical, and social settings upon the earth.  Both baptism and healing appear as divine gifts that serve as assurances:  The commitment of divinity is to life, rather than to death.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Many think of healing miracles as a disruption of the cycles, natural order, and mechanical processes of life.  They hold that miracles by GOD upon and within the flesh are hostile intrusions, interruptions of human ascendancy, and destructive denials of secular truth.  Others welcome miracles as necessary intercession and intervention that may benefit both the quick and the dead.  Increasingly, believers are proclaiming that GOD heals in three ways:  through medical science and practitioners; through faith; and by resurrection from the dead.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to the measure of your faith.
