Healing Can Never Pass Away

Many have proclaimed divine healing is not for today, but ceased long ago. Unbelief like that is not new; the devil has preached it for thousands of years. It is simple to determine the truth for yourself. Look in the Bible to see what God has said.

Begin by looking at three passages to find out God's Word is capable of healing and does heal. Then see, from the Scripture, that His Word will never pass away. After that examine two other simple, but profound, arguments.

Matthew 8:5-10,13
5 Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him,
6 saying, "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented."
7 And Jesus said to him, "I will come and heal him."
8 The centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.
9 "For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."
10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, "Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!"
13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you." And his servant was healed that same hour.

The centurion recognized Jesus had authority: His word would get the job done. Jesus called that great faith. Does His Word still have authority? Do you recognize the authority of His Word?

Proverbs 4:20-22
20 My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.

Psalm 107:20
20 He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions.

You have now seen three scriptures clearly saying God's Word heals. Is that Word still available today?

Mark 13:31
31 "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away."

Isaiah 40:8
8 "The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever."

1 Peter 1:23
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,

Since God's Words will never pass away, healing can never pass away!

Exodus 15:26
26 "... For I am the Lord who heals you."

God chose to first reveal Himself by this Name to His chosen people Israel after He delivered them from bondage. He told them He was a Healer.

It is God's nature to heal. For Him it is natural; just as it is natural for you to breathe. To stop being the "Lord Who Heals" would be to stop being Himself.

Is He still the same today, or has He changed?

Malachi 3:6
6 "For I am the Lord, I do not change;"

Hebrews 13:8
8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

James 1:17
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Not only does He not change, the passage in James makes it clear He does not even vary one bit! He will be the same forever.

If all the above was not enough to convince you, consider this:

Mark 9:23
23 Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."

Matthew 17:20
20 ... I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

There are two statements from Jesus that nothing is impossible. Certainly that includes healing! That should convince you.

Do you believe this? Or must you have Jesus touch you (or you touch Him: like Thomas) before you will believe?

Matthew 8:13
13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you." And his servant was healed that same hour.


A. God's Word heals.

The Word will never pass away.

So healing can never pass away.

B. God is a Healer.

He never changes.

So healing will never cease.

C. All things are possible.

So YOU Can Be Healed!
