"If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you."

Jesus Christ did 3 things...Preach, Teach & Heal.
Preaching calls attention to truth.
Teaching explains truth.
Healing demonstrates truth.
1. The Healer - Isaiah 53:4-5
"Surely He has borne our grief's and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed."
2. The Promise - 1 Thessalonians 5:23
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely and may your whole spirit, soul and body be persevered blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
3. The Approach - Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
4. The Command - Mark 16:15-18
And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." Verse 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen
5. The Method - James 5:13-15
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
The Church of God has been commissioned by Jesus Christ to heal the sick!
