How You Can Be Healed

God has a lot of ways to heal us based on the redemptive work of Christ. It is something Jesus paid for—something He suffered for. His desire for you to be healed and walk in divine health is the reason He went through so much pain and suffering. He was taking upon Himself the pain and suffering of humanity. Therefore, He has made healing available to you through many avenues. They are:


1. Healing through the laying on of hands (Luke 4: 40)


He didn’t tell them it wasn’t God’s will for them to be healed. Everyone who came to Jesus got healed. No exceptions.


2. Healing through deliverance (Matt 8: 16)


Demons can be the reason why people are sick in their bodies. They may have a spirit of infirmity. See also Luke 8: 2.


3. Healing through breaking curses (Gal. 3: 13)


People are plagued with generational demons of infirmity such as diabetes, high blood pressure, certain heart conditions, and more. If there is a generational curse that is activating sickness in your body, know that because Jesus was made a curse for us, you can tell the devil that he will not put this sickness in your body. Tell him, “I don’t care if my mother, grandmother, or great-grandmother had this disease; the curse stops here. I break it in the name of Jesus.” Begin to rise up and use your authority! Say, “I am not cursed. I am blessed. My body is blessed with healing, in Jesus’s name.”


4. Healing through anointing oil (Mark 6: 13)


Anointing oil represents the Spirit of God and the anointing. The anointing is what drives sickness and disease out of our bodies. The anointing oil breaks yokes of bondage (Isa. 10: 27), and sickness is a form of bondage.


5. Healing through faith (Mark 11: 23)


For some people, sickness is a mountain. It’s always in their way. It seems like something they can’t overcome. But Mark 11: 23 says that when you have faith and don’t doubt, you will speak to a mountain and it will move. So, speak to that mountain of sickness; don’t climb it! You must talk to mountains: “Lupus, be removed and cast in the sea!” “Cancer, be removed and cast in the sea!” But don’t doubt in your heart. Therefore, you must be careful to guard your heart. Don’t hang around people who doubt. Keep your heart free from doubt and unbelief. There is going to come a time when you must speak to some things. Every time a mountain gets in your way, instead of turning around and running, you need to stand face-to-face and say, “Be thou removed!” Grow up in faith. Open your mouth and talk to sickness. Say, “I command this sickness to leave my body in the name of Jesus.” Mark 11: 23 says, “. . . those things which he saith” (KJV). This is not even about prayer. This is just speaking. Some stuff you must just speak to! “He shall have whatsoever he saith” (KJV).


6. Healing through virtue or touch (Mark 5: 29–30)


Jesus’s virtue can be in you if you pray and fast. Luke 6: 19 says, “The whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.” Worship is a way to reach out and touch the heart of God. True worshipers know how to get in God’s presence. As you reach up in pure worship, you will be like the multitudes in Jesus’s day, for “as many as touched it were made perfectly well” (Matt. 14: 36). “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him” (John 4: 23, KJV). Is this your hour?


7. Healing through the presence of God (Luke 5: 17)

“The power of the Lord was present to heal them.” Praise and worship is there to invite God’s presence in so that people will get healed. It is not a warm-up to the message.


8. Healing through prayer (Matt. 21: 22)


“All things” (KJV) includes healing. James 5: 16 says that we must confess our faults and pray for one another that we may be healed. Sometimes healing doesn’t come until you confess your faults and let somebody pray for you. Sometimes the key is humility.


9. Healing through the gift of healing (1 Cor. 12: 9, 28)


When Jesus left the earth, He said that we would do greater works than He did. He also said that He would send a helper to instruct us and guide us in these greater works. The Holy Spirit came among men to indwell us, giving us supernatural ability to carry out the works of Christ. He accomplishes this by endowing us with various gifts that all work together to bring people into relationship with God. One of these gifts is the gift of healing.


But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills. . .. And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.

—1 Corinthians 12: 7–11, 28


10. Healing through fasting (Isa. 58: 8)


When you fast in the way that God leads you, He says that “your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.” According to this verse, you will be healed when you fast, but better yet, fasting can serve as preventative medicine. It says, “The LORD shall be your rear guard.” In other words, sickness can’t sneak up on you. God’s got your back. While everyone else is getting swine flu, you’re healthy. While there’s no cure for the common cold, you sail through cold season with not so much as one symptom, sniffle, or cough.

Then there are just those times when nothing else will do except a sacrifice of going without food, a time to surrender your flesh to the Spirit of God that brings life. Jesus talks about this in Matthew 17: 21: “This kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”


11. Healing through the word (Ps. 107: 20)


The Bible says that God “sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” (Ps. 107: 20). We also know that God’s word does not return to Him void. It accomplishes everything for which it was sent (Isa. 55: 11). If He spoke healing to you, then you are healed. Jesus said that man would not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. That is why learning and meditating on the Word of God is so important for your healing. Declare that by the Word of God you “shall not die, but live, and declare the works the LORD” (Ps. 118: 17). Read the Word. Confess the Word. Get healing scriptures. Trust God because His word will accomplish in you all that He intends.


12. Healing through cloths/ clothing (Acts 19: 12)


The healing anointing is transferable. It can be in clothing. It is tangible. We pray over prayer cloths at my church, and people have been healed. Years ago, while preaching in Ethiopia, I took my shirt off after ministering and cut it up into small pieces of cloth. We passed them out to all the people there, and we heard so many testimonies of healings. One person set a cloth on fire in his sick mother’s home, and the smoke from the cloth healed her. She had been bedridden for years, and she got up out of her bed healed. In other countries, they don’t have doctors and hospitals as we do in America. They must believe God. They are desperate for healing. They don’t have all the prescription medicines, health insurance, Medicaid, and Medicare. So, they come to services believing that if they don’t get their healing there, they are not going to make it. They have high expectancy and high faith. God honors faith.


And when the men of that place recognized Him, they sent out into all that surrounding region, brought to Him all who were sick, and begged Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched it were made perfectly well.

—Matthew 14: 35–36


Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.

—Acts 19: 11–12
