How Healing Comes – Avenue #9

Returning to his disciples after the Transfiguration on the mountain, Jesus found a chaotic situation, where his disciples were unable to heal an epileptic boy. In Matthew 17,

14 When they came to the crowd, a man approached Jesus and knelt before him. 15 “Lord, have mercy on my son,” he said. “He has seizures and is suffering greatly. He often falls into the fire or into the water. 16 I brought him to your disciples, but they could not heal him.” 17 “O unbelieving and perverse generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy here to me.” 18 Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed from that moment.

I believe this topic is not well understood by believers in general and by healing ministers in particular. Some diseases-not all, but some, are the result of the presence and activity of one or more demons or evil spirits. Cast out the demons and healing results.

Certainly, sickness and disease in general do not come from God-they come from the devil. Unfortunately, for every Christian I have heard attribute disease to the devil, I must have heard five attribute it to God. The Bible says in James 1:17,

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

Non-believers routinely run telethons to “fight our enemy, cancer” or “fight the enemy, cystic fibrosis”, but Christians say ‘lt came from God’. How tragic! God is good and doesn’t give disease to His kids as presents.

Therefore, in this avenue of healing, healing is obtained through deliverance. This of course, requires knowing if such demons are present, or discernment-the topic of the next post. Please share your own experiences of healings obtained in this way.
