Divine Health Soundness For The Sanctified ON HEALINGS
Exodus 15:26 KJV
_And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I AM THE LORD THAT HEALETH THEE_.
HEALINGS ARE OF TWO MAIN TYPES –
1. True or Divine healing and
2. False or Diabolical healing.
1. *True and Divine healing* which leads to divine freedom from iniquity and infirmity (Psa 103:3)
(i) *Supernatural Healing*
(a). *Spiritual* healing from sin and guilt unto salvation and assurance in Christ through evangelistic counselling and preaching.
(b). *Faith* healing where one receives healing by one’s own faith and personal prayer.
(c). *Power* healing where one receives healing by manifestations from someone who is divinely endowed with Healing GIFTS (Grk=charismata) and miraculous WORKINGS (Grk=energemata 1Cor 12:9-10) or OPERATIONS (Grk=energemata 1Cor 12:6).
(ii) *Natural Healing* – Scientific Medical healing by administration of *pharmaceutical* medicines, use of *mending* skills or application of physical and *hygienic* measures that are scientifically proven to *prevent or impede, repair or revert disease processes.* Luke was personal physician to Apostle Paul (Col 4:14) from whom Paul must have learned his “little wine” prescription to Timothy (1Tim 5:23). There are “all sorts of wine” (Neh 5:18), but fresh juice or “must” of grape called “new wine” is Christ’s choice sort of wine for the Kingdom (Mat 26:29).
2. *False and Diabolical healing* which leads to diabolical bondage.
(i). *Psychic* healing – mystical “faith” methods through auto-suggestion, mind energy or manipulative hypnosis.
(ii). *Magical* healing – occultist “power” methods through enchantments or demon-worship that enlists and conjures familiar spirits.
(iii) *Quack* healing – use of spurious concoctions and superstitiously purported remedies.
All these false and diabolical methods of healing must be avoided at all cost because they are detestable to God.
