Miracle Healing in Christian Faith
The concept of the soul and body is central to Christian faith. The Bible recognizes that each person has a soul, and that Christ came into the world to save souls and bring them to life. The Bible teaches that a priest’s faith-filled prayer will save a sick person. The sacrament of anointing the sick is a sign of this divine intervention.
During the ministry of Jesus and the Apostles, divine healing was a common occurrence. The Apostle Paul, who was called to preach the gospel to the Gentiles, was renowned for his healing ministry. In Acts 14, Paul heals a crippled man who had faith that he would be healed.
The prophets of Israel were amazing men of God who walked among us. Their words reshaped history. Empires rose at their call. Life and death obeyed the prophets’ will. God’s will was revealed through the prophets. The prophets were so amazing that no other nation or person could compare. Likewise, Jesus, baptised in the Jordan, was dedicated to the revelation of God.
According to the bible, an evil spirit in a person’s soul is a spirit that does not respect human life. A believer-priest has spiritual authority over the devil and can cast him out of a candidate. It is also the role of the church to fulfill this aspect of its mission. This ministry must be holistic and aligned with the apostolic ministry.
