NAMES INSTRUCTOR RELIGION 11 October 2017 Healing Introduction What is healing? The technical definition of healing is the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again (). In the Bible there are dozens of incidences regarding healing. God manifests His power through human beings so as to make it physical or tangible on earth. For this process to take place it must run on a two-way street basis. The person anointed by God must be willing to do the work of God and must be strong in his faith. The first person that God manifested His healing power through was Abraham. It wasn’t until Abraham prayed for healing that his people were healed. In the book of John chapter 11 a dear friend of Jesus had fallen gravely ill. His name was Lazarus. Lazarus lived in Bethany together with his sisters; Martha and Mary. In Luke 7:36 Mary he may walk. Possessing strong faith is the key to receiving eternal healing. There are countless healing miracles which have happened in the Bible and as well happen in our daily livelihood and all are only possible through possessing strong faith and belief in the name and glory of the Lord as illustrated in the Bible. We should always live in accordance to how Jesus lived His life so that we may gain favor like Lazarus and his sisters did. REFERENCES KJV Schneiders Sandra M.
