Miracle Healing and Christian Spirituality

The term “prophecy” has a lot of meaning for Christians. The New Testament teaches that prophecy has a limited authority, but Christians are expected to discern the difference. Throughout the Bible, prophecy is discussed in different ways, but the New Testament does not elevate it to the status of gospel. Hence, it is important to test a potential prophecy and confirm its validity with church leadership.

Some charismatic Christians believe that prayer is a powerful weapon. Often, praying in this manner results in violent shaking, vomiting, and even writhing on the ground. It is not uncommon for people to go completely unconscious after such prayer. However, the violent nature of such prayer is incontestable. The mystical experience of prayer is a profoundly affecting one, and the fear it evokes in those who pray it is almost overwhelming.

In addition to praying for physical healings, Christians believe that God can heal the sick. The Bible describes many cases of people receiving miraculous healings. Many people believe that if they walk in faith, their body will become healthy and they will never become sick again. The gospels contain countless examples of people who experienced these healings. The stories of Trophimus, Epaphroditus, and Paul illustrate how a person’s faith can heal them.

The sacraments of the Church are particularly effective for healing. The Catechism teaches that Jesus touched the sick during his ministry and continues to heal through these sacraments. In addition, Jesus himself is present in the Eucharist, which is bread that gives eternal life. The sacraments are particularly effective instruments for bodily healing and spiritual strengthening. And because they are given to the sick, the healing power of Jesus is available for all of us.
