Believers will lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover(Mark 16:18).
One of the questions I often get when teaching about divine healing is from those who are in need of healing themselves. They often think that because they themselves are sick, they cannot be used by God to heal others. Thinking like this implies that healing others has something to do with the state of their physical selves or lifestyle, rather than by the Stripes of Jesus Christ at the Whipping Posts.
Healing is by the Stripes of Jesus Christ. no one can earn their healing, neither can anyone earn the power to heal others. The thinking that a person’s sickness can hinder the power of God is to exalt the sickness above the work of Christ and is a tradition of men. In Mark 16:18, the only things involved in healing others, is the believer and the laying on of hands on the sick person. It does not even say pray, neither does it say anything about if the believer is healthy, nor anything about generational curses, sin in the person’s life, if the believer has a leading, if the believer has a gift or if the sick person has faith to be healed. A Person’s physical ailment does not change in any way what Jesus has done, and neither disqualifies a person from ministering to others.
But What if you’re trying to get healing for one’s self? The same principles apply, firstly know your bad deeds have not canceled the healing effects of the Stripes of Jesus, neither have your good works earned you any brownie points towards healing. We need no more faith than to believe and agree with the raising from the dead Spirit that lives inside of us, Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
The more we realize, we already possess healing and resurrection power, and our minds begin to agree with this objective fact of what Jesus has done, the more our body and the bodies of those we lay hands on, will manifest this truth. Now, I personally have not experience the fullness of this understanding, but truth is not dictated by my experience, rather we renew our minds to let our experiences line up with what Scripture declares to be true already. The more I agree that the work is done, the better results I’ve seen with healing, for others and in my own life.
