Healing Always Comes

I. Healing is just as close as forgiveness; it takes the same power to do both

      A. Luke 5:17-26 — Jesus used words to minister the power to forgive and the power to heal

      B. Isaiah 10:27 — Anointing is on the Word; the yoke is destroyed because of that anointing

      C. Romans 1:15-17 — The Gospel is the power of God

II. God's power is in His Word, followed by His Spirit

      A. Genesis 1 — God spoke; the Spirit moved

      B. Luke 5:23-24 —- Jesus spoke; the Spirit moved

      C. 2 Corinthians 3:6-12 — Second Corinthians 4:13 "We having the same spirit of faith according as it is written" …

III. God's power—always present to heal

        A. All of the power of God is present because God is present

        B. His power and ability is not manifested until the demand is placed upon it

                  1. No one in Luke 5:17 made a demand on the power

                  2. The woman with an issue of blood made a demand on that power

       C. Power that flows without demand is wild and destructive

                              Example: Electricity—demand = lights

                              Electricity—uncontrolled = fire, destruction, death

        D. Making demands

                  1. Get under the word --- the man at Lystra

                  2. Believe you receive

                  3. Act on the Word

                  4. Speak faith in the name of Jesus

         C. John 6:35-40 — This life is the will of Good for all

          D. 1 Corinthians 11:28 — During communion, we must examine ourselves

                   1. Not just in areas of sin, but first in sickness and disease
