Early Christian Deliverance and Miracle Healing


Early Christian Deliverance and Miracle Healing

Early Christian writers such as Tertullian defended the Christian faith and defended its doctrines against accusations of treason against the gods. His Apology of Tertullian, written to the Roman Senate and Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, stressed the power of the name of Christ over demons. This doctrine claimed that Christian prayers could bind demons and bring them to repentance, leading to healings and salvation.

Jesus chose twelve men to be his apostles. These men were referred to as Boanerges, which means Sons of Thunder, in Spanish. They were called this because they were committed to the Lord. After their conversion, they were baptized with the Holy Spirit. Their baptisms would make them speak in tongues, which was evidence that they had received the Holy Spirit.

The Last Reformation also emphasized the gift of tongues and Spirit baptism as separate from salvation. While salvation is the act of receiving the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues was a special gift of the early church. It was a way for Christians to communicate the gospel to others. However, the Bible says that not all believers have this gift.

Early Christian communities also practiced deliverance ministry. The apostles were given the authority to cast out demons and heal the sick. Their healings were documented in the books of Acts and Matthew.
