Healing demonstrates the miraculous power and gift from God

See also

There are a multitude of evidences and compelling facts that are articulated in the Bible that demand more than just a passing sweeping statement that it all happened by accident or chance. Probability is the elephant in the room that is dismissed when doubters, skeptics, and allegedly those driven by logic attempt to explain away the God in the Bible or Torah.

One issue of many is the astounding ability of the body to heal itself from physical infirmities and physical damage. The Bible ties faith in God as a key for the healing process, however scientific evidences also validates belief will prompt the body to recover and expedite the healing process.

A core standard concerning healing is declared in Exodus,

Exodus 15: 26—He said, “if you listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His eyes, if you pay attention to His commands and keep all His decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord who heals you.”

One extremely important component to healing is the written word which declares, "by His stripes we were healed" which is a past tense designation derived from the brutal beating Jesus Christ took on the behalf of believers. It is sufficient to say that authority and power was achieved which gives dominion over categories as sickness, diseases, and afflictions, a clear declaration Jesus made before His ascension from the presence of His disciples.

The power of healing that comes from belief is documented in a phenomenon known as the placebo effect where people are miraculously or even routinely healed simple because they believe it to be true.

Jesus made no distinction concerning the power to manifest a miracle as healing when He stated the building blocks for the process in Mark 11:23,

"For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pas; he shall have whatsoever he saith".

This stipulation troubles both believers and non-believers alike since there is no stated boundary to this declaration or no exception given for miracles or healing of ailments. It would follow Proverb 18:21 which establishes that "death and life are in the power of the tongue".

If God is an orderly God, there should be an order to the process of healing, and there is. It is God's business to work in the supernatural, but there must be a procedure in place to unlock this gift. When one inspects the gifts of the Spirit in 1 Corinthians 12, all the ingredients for miracles are there as gifts. As with salvation, God provides the gifts but it is up to us to use them.

Healing is not as mysterious as people make it out to be. The body already has an incredible ability to heal itself and it is ridiculous to declare that this total healing package developed by itself on its own with no design. It is really intellectually silly to say an inferior work as a computer developed the ability to create itself and repair itself by service and replacement repair parts by strictly chance. The same doubters, skeptics, and logic thinkers would laugh the Bible out of the building if God made that same statement.

Probability demands a better explanation regarding how the process of healing a physical human body came into existence, which brings us to the realm of faith. You just can't honestly dismiss an observable gift as healing and say this took place by chance or accident.

Well, you could say it happened by chance, but probability would call you a liar.
