Christian Healing and The Word Center

After trying to maintain several blogs with regular posts, I saw a need to simplify! So an umbrella blog has been set up at The Word Center.

May God bless you and bring the healing you need in Christ Jesus.

Mercy, faith, and healing

Mark 10:46-52

As Jesus, His disciples, and a sizable crowd
left Jericho, they saw a blind man –
Bartimaeus, son of Timaeus –
sitting by the road, begging.

When the man heard that Jesus of Nazareth
was passing by,
he began to cry out,
“Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

People told him to hush, but he just
cried out all the more!

“Son of David, have mercy on me!”

So Jesus stopped and said,
“Call him here.”

As they called the blind man, they told him,
“Take courage. Get up! He’s calling you.”

Flinging off his coat, the blind man
jumped up, and came to Jesus.

Then Jesus asked, “What do you
want Me to do for you?”

“Master, I want to see again!”

So Jesus said, “Go then.
Your faith has healed you.”

Immediately, the man received his sight,
and he followed Jesus on The Way.

Jesus has power over everything ill

As Jesus came down from the mountain,
great crowds followed Him,
and a leper dared to come near and kneel, saying,
“Lord, if you choose,
you can make me spotless again.”

And Jesus stretched out His hand
and touched the man –
touched the leprous skin, saying,
“I do choose.
Be healed.”

Immediately, the leprosy disappeared,
and Jesus told the man
to say nothing to anyone but go show
himself to the priest and do
as Moses had commanded as
a testimony of God’s healing.

Continuing His journey, Jesus
came to Capernaum, where a centurion
made an appeal, saying,
“Lord, my servant at home is ill
and in terrible distress.”

Jesus said, “I will come and cure him,”
but the centurion shook his head and said,
“Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof!
But speak the word only, and my servant will be healed.”

Then the centurion went on to say,
“I am a man under authority with others under me.
So when I tell one to go, he goes, or another to come here,
he does. Or I tell my slave to do this or that, and it’s done.”

Jesus listened, then said to His followers,
“Truly I tell you, I’ve never found such faith in Israel!
Many will come from the east and the west to eat
with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob
in the Kingdom of Heaven, while the heirs
of the kingdom will find themselves
in outer darkness, weeping and gnashing their teeth.”

But to the centurion, Jesus said, “Go.
Let it be done for you according to your faith.”
And in that very hour, the servant was healed.

Then Jesus entered the house of Peter, whose
mother-in-law lay in bed with a fever.
When Jesus touched her hand,
the fever left,
and she got up and tended them.

That evening, the crowds brought
demon-possessed people to Jesus to heal,
and He cast out each ill spirit
with a word
and cured all who needed healing,
fulfilling what Isaiah had prophesized of Him:
“He took away
our infirmities.
He took over our ills.”

Jesus gives authority to heal

Jesus chose twelve followers
and sent them out – two by two –
each with authority over anything ill.

He ordered
no supplies for the mission
except a walking stick –
no food, no purse, no wallet with money,
no extra set of clothes –
but told them to stay in the same home
of welcome
and wear their sandals
to shake off the dust
any place they must
abandon if they found no peace.

So the followers went,
unceasingly calling all to repent.

Troublesome spirits were soon evicted!
And anointing the sick with olive oil,
they cured many who once were ill.

Christians can train to administer healing

The Christian healing ministry of Francis and Judith MacNutt began a work in me that led to this blog and more. Or, to be more precise, God graced my husband and me with good timing in meeting Francis on several blessed occasions and praying for people as they came up for healing after Francis’ talks at our church.

Since then we have moved to a rural area of N. FL where we’re part of a small congregation with a mid-week healing service that includes Eucharist. And, not far away in Jacksonville, the Christian Healing Ministries (CHM) has established deep roots and grown – around the globe and also on the Internet.  

So, if you have wondered how you can be trained to administer the healing power of Jesus Christ, I highly recommend the biblically sound training materials, online resources, and powerful prayers you will find on the CHM website. Also, to give you an idea of how Francis’ teachings and a word from my pastor affected me and a woman for whom I prayed, here’s a hotlink to my poem "At the Altar, Railing."

May God continue to bless you and Christian healing ministries everywhere in Jesus’ Name.
