Healing In Jesus’ Superlative Name.

We as born-again believer’s are given the “power of attorney” to use Jesus Christ of Nazareth’s name (Luke 9:1-2; Luke 10:1-12). The disciples were on their way to prayer when a clear, divine (Kairos) moment presented itself to Peter and John. A man lame from birth sat begging and made eye contact with them. Peter said, “Look at us.”

Therefore, the beggar looked expecting to receive alms and Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give to you; In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and anklebones received strength. Acts 3:1-7

Peter goes on to preach to them as well as to teach them about Jesus name. Peter attributed the healing to no unique human powers, but to faith in the name of Jesus. Peter invokes the name with joy and strength as well as full assurance of his delegated authority.

The appeals to Jesus’ name as the unmistakable Messiah (Christ), who walked as a man among men (of Nazareth), is an establishing of His Person, His character, and His kingly office as authoritative grounds for extending healing grace. This privileged power is given to us who believe in Him; and we are to use it in confronting the retreating rule that sickness and Satan seeks to sustain over humanity.

    I wonder if those that call themselves Christians truly believe the Scripture or if the know what it really means?

      I would certainly hope so. it is sad when very few will go out and witness to the lost and pray for healings and deliverance whenever possible.

      So many fear speaking face to face with anyone they do not know. it is a blessing in disguise waiting for a chance to be received. Few understand our authority in Jesus Name. Even fewer use it. Thank you for stopping by please come back and comment anytime.

    Our God hasn’t changed. He still heals today. I believe that God uses prayer and doctors. There is a reason that God allowed one of his inspired authors to be a doctor (Luke).

    I have seen how God’s hand has been used this way. My daughter wouldn’t be alive today if it weren’t for prayer and modern medicine. People across the country prayed for her when she had her kidney transplant. I have been a witness to the amazing daily miracle of her life the past few years.

    She has had her ups and downs, like the week long visit to the ICU just a few weeks ago. Not many knew how serious her situation was, but the few who knew were praying. God used doctors to perform a technique that is and will probably make my daughter’s life a better one.

    I am greatful to God for his healing power. I, for one, get to see it every day.

    God’s blessings my friend…

      How wonderful. Not many see what you see my brother and have experienced. Needless to say i will be including your entire family in prayer. I agree about the good doctor Luke, he is there for a reason. Pray for divine healing until it comes seek a doctor and his/her treatment. When and if healing comes God is not offended if we go back and ask for a well check and or doctor’s advice that it is ok to stop treatment or medicines. Common sense always spends well. Blessings
