Sources of Illness

All illness results from sin, but not all illness is because of sin, and certainly not all illness is sin. Part of the context for understanding divine healing is to recognize that we have an enemy who is seeking to disrupt, corrupt, and destroy God’s purposes. We can’t attribute everything to the Devil, but we can’t discount his role either. Just as we must reject sin we must reject the Devil as well. Through Jesus we have authority over the Devil and his works.

Healing is the Work of the Church

If we’ve put divine healing in it’s proper context, then it is clear that divine healing isn’t not just an internal blessing for God’s people. Rather, healing is a gift given to the church for the sake of the world. To use older biblical language for the healing of the nations. The church is meant to be the conduit of God’s blessing to the world. Healing is a part of our witness about Jesus.

Theology of Divine Healing

There are two extremes to avoid in this topic: that God always heals and that God never heals. However, we cannot look at healing in and of itself. The act of divine healing must be put into the larger context of what God has done, is doing, and will do for the whole world through Christ. Only then will we rightly pursue God for his gift without abandoning the giver.
