Is Divine Healing
and Health Scriptural?
Physical Emotional Mental
Be reminded that this world changed kingdoms—from God’s government to Satan’s government. And God delivered to Adam the catastrophic news:
“Cursed is the earth because of you…” (Genesis 3:17‑19; Proverbs 26:2).
Corruption, dis-ease, and death now reigned on the earth (Romans 5:12). Adam and Eve were now under a cursed, fraudulent government system. Satan’s kingdom could not freely provide what the human race needed, including health & wellness. Stress (fear) came.
Our health & wellness are limited because of that impotent kingdom. Death obviously reigns and usually it’s the result of progressive issues or dis-ease.
This perverse system is what we were raised in—it is ‘normal’ for us. This mindset is deeply ingrained in each of us. It even operates below the conscious level. And because of this cursed world government system, fear (stress) is now ‘normal.’
But Isaiah 9:6,7 promised this about Y’shua Messiah (Jesus the Christ): “Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given. And the government shall rest upon his shoulder… an ever expanding, peaceful, never ending, fair, and just…kingdom.”
Divine healing and health is a definite act of God through faith in Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and the precious blood of Christ, whereby the human body is cured, healed, repaired, delivered from health issues and their power, and made whole, sound, and healthy.
And God’s government healthcare plan is already paid for; Jesus the Christ paid the price in full!
GOOD NEWS! Divine Healing and Health is Markedly Scriptural
There are at least fourteen Hebrew and Greek words found in hundreds of Scriptures, which plainly teach the ideas of full salvation, deliverance, preservation, soundness, healing, health, and wholeness of body, soul, and spirit through the gospel. These words are used many times of the body as well as of the soul. Sometimes they are used in the same passages of both body and soul, thus proving that they are not limited to the healing of the soul. There are some passages where these words are used which speak of other things besides the body being healed, such as the soul (Ps. 41:4); a vessel (Jer. 19:11); land (2 Chron. 7:14); waters (Ezek. 47:8-11; 2 Kings 2:21-22); and backslidings (Jer. 3:22). Please enjoy below, the many times bodily healing is referred to in the Bible:
1. The Hebrew word rapha means and is translated cure (Jer. 33:6); to make whole (Job 5:18); to heal (Num. 12:13; Deut. 32:39; 2 Kings 20:5, 8; 6:2; Isa. 19:22; 57:18-19; Jer. 17:14; 30:17; Hosea 6:1; Zech. 1:16); be healed (Gen. 20:17; Ex. 21:19; Lev. 13:18, 37; 14:3, 48; Deut. 28:27, 35; 1 Sam. 6:3; 8:29; 9:15; 2 Chron. 22:6; 30:20; Ps. 30:2; 107:20; Isa. 6:10; 53:5; Jer. 17:14; Ezek. 34:4; Hos. 7:1; 11:3); healeth (Ex. 15:26; Ps. 103:3; 147:3; Isa. 30:26); be thoroughly healed (Ex. 21:19); and physician (Gen. 50:2; 2 Chron. 16:12; Job 13:4; Jer. 8:22).
2. The Hebrew marpay means and is translated healing (Jer. 14:19; Mal. 4:2) health (Prov. 4:22; 12:18; 13:17; 16:24; Jer. 8:15); cure (Jer. 33:6); remedy (2 Chron. 36:16; Prov. 6:15; 29:1); sound in health (Prov. 14:30); and wholesome (Prov. 15:4).
3. The Hebrew yeshuwah means and is translated health (Ps. 42:11; 43:5 67:2); deliverance (Ps. 18:50; 44:4); and salvation (Ps. 91:16). The whole 91st Psalm teaches perfect healing and health physically; so the salvation of v. 16 includes the body as well as the soul.
As you may know Jesus the Christ was a Jew. And His name was this word: Yeshuwah.
4. The Hebrew arubah means restoring to sound health (Isa. 58:8; Jer. 8:22; 30:17; 33:6).
5. The Hebrew chabash means healer (Isa. 3:7) and to bind up or heal (Isa. 30:26; 61:1; Ezek. 34:16; Hos. 6:1; Job 5:18; Ps. 147:3).
6. The Hebrew word rifooth means health (Prov. 3:8).
7. The Greek word therapeuo means and is translated heal (Matt. 8:7; 10:1, 8; 12:10; Mark 3:2, 15; Luke 4:23; 6:7; 10:9; 14:3); healed (Matt. 4:23-24; 8:16, 17; 9:35; 12:15, 22; 14:14; 15:20; 19:2; 21:14; Mark 1:34; 3:10; 6:5, 13; Luke 4:40; 5:15; 6:18; 8:43; 9:6-11; 13:14; 14:4; Acts 4:14; 5:16; 8:7; 28:9); cure (Matt. 17:16; Luke 9:1); and cured (Luke 7:21; John 5:10).
8. The Greek iama means healing or repairing (1 Cor. 12:9, 28, 30).
9. The Greek iaomai means and is translated heal (Matt. 13:15; Luke 4:18; 5:17; 9:2; John 4:47; 12:40); healed (Matt. 8:8,13; Mark 5:29; Luke 6:17, 19; 7:7; 8:2, 47; 17:15: 22:51; John 5:13; Acts 3:11; 28:8; Heb. 12:13; Jas. 5:16; 1 Pet. 2:24); healing (Acts 10:38); whole (Matt. 15:28; Acts 9:24).
10. The Greek iasis means healing and cure (Luke 13:32; Acts 4:22, 30; 28:27).
11. The Greek hugiano means sound health (3 John 2).
12. The Greek hogies means healthy, sound and whole (Matt. 12:13; 15:31; Mark 3:5; 5:34; Luke 5:31).
13. The Greek sodzo means to save, deliver, protect, heal, preserve, and make whole. It is used 86 times in reference to saving the soul, but in the following passages it refers to saving the body and healing it of illness (Matt. 9:21-22; Mark 5:29, 34; 6:56; 10:52; Luke 8:36,48; 8:50; 17:19; Acts 4:9; 14:9).
14. The Greek dia-sodzo means to save and to heal thoroughly, make perfectly whole and is used of the body being healed (Matt. 14:36; Luke 7:3).
By reading the 177 Scriptures above and the many in these studies, one can readily see that both divine healing and divine health are taught in Scripture for all who will meet the conditions of faith required by the gospel, as Jesus has already paid the price for healing; paid in full (Is. 53; Matt. 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24). Be reminded that active faith gives the Kingdom of God the legal and just access into this cursed world impotent government system (Mark 11:24; 1 Peter 1:5; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 1:17; Galatians 3:11; James 1:6-7; 2:17-26).
What Divine Healing and Health is Not
It is not healing and health by natural remedies, imagination, will power, personal magnetism, metaphysics, demonology, spiritualism, immunity from death, presumption, insubordination to God's will, mind over matter, denial of the plain facts of sin, health issues, and disease, or natural healing by inherent laws and creative powers in man's body.
The plan of God is to end evil and suffering forever (Exodus 34:6-7; Matthew 13:37-43; I Corinthians 15:24-28; Galatians 6:7-8; 1 Timothy 1:5; Revelation 21-22). The ultimate purpose of God in all His present dealings with man is to bring him back to the place where he was before the fall (beloved fellowship) and purge him of all possibility of failing in the future. “The object and purpose of our instruction and charge is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, and a clear conscience, and genuine trust (faith).” —1 Timothy 1:5
