Healing Series – Session 1

In session 1, we provide an introduction to the Healing series by sharing the cause of sickness, God’s take on illness and who He is, and start reviewing some of the Old and New Testament examples of healing in the bible and even examine record of healings in early church history.

Here’s a snippet from the discussion:

“Does God use sickness to chasten His children? Let’s look at Hebrews 12:4-7.”

Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. 5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

Our understanding of whether or not God uses sickness to chasten, depends entirely upon the meaning of the word chasten in the context of this passage. It is correction not punishment. God does not use terminal disease to chasten his people, death is a curse.”
