Miracle Healing and Christian Deliverance


Miracle Healing and Christian Deliverance

It has been estimated that over half a billion people belong to Christian churches worldwide. Most of them came to faith through miracles and healings. These healings often took place in private homes. Western missionaries often disbelieved in spirits and the afterlife. However, these churches continued to grow. The gospel of good news, which includes a promise of an afterlife, meets practical needs and gives assurance to believers.

Christians believe that the power of prayer can save people from death. During the Middle Ages, many Christians expected healing to be rare. As a result, church leaders restricted the practice of praying for the sick and the exorcism of demons. This changed the primary purpose of healing from compassionate compassion to proving one’s holiness. In this period, the anointing of the sick became a sacrament. Although this practice never fails to work, it became limited to those in imminent danger of death.

The Bible is full of miracles and the apostles did many of them. For instance, Stephen performed a great miracle, and Paul performed an extraordinary miracle at Ephesus. Paul cast out demons (Acts 16:16-18). In Acts 13:6-12, God blinded a sorcerer. Likewise, Moses, Elijah, and Elisha performed numerous miracles.

Whether or not a person is able to receive a healing depends on the person’s faith and its depth. In the Bible, Jesus frequently states that healings are due to one’s faith, not on a person’s ability.
