I have often heard it said that when the Bible talks about healing it is talking about spiritual healing and not physical.
I believe this is used as an excuse when people cannot or do not see healing, and I believe it is a view that is not Biblical.
We have already seen that healing was prophesied in the Word, in the book of Isaiah; this is the section that many teach as being spiritual healing.
In the Word we see Jesus healing Peter’s mother-in-law of a physical illness (Matthew 8 v 14 and 15).
Then we see Jesus delivering and healing people in the evening (Matthew 8 v 16).
The Word then goes on to say that He did this in order to fulfil that which was written by the prophet Isaiah (Matthew 8 v 17).
So Jesus fulfilled Isaiah 53 v 4 and 5 by healing people of physical disease, so we are talking about physical and not spiritual healing.
The Greek (that we read in Matthew 8 v 17) also makes this clear with infirmities meaning frailties of the body and sickness meaning sickness, illness or disability.
The Bible is very clear, Jesus healed people of physical ailments.
The Bible is also clear in that Jesus is the express image of the Father, so God the Father wants you healed (physically) and living a supernatural life of (physical) health.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you want me to live in health and to be delivered from all sickness, pain and disease”.
Matthew 8 v 16 and 17…..When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken of by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses
