Spiritual Gifts - Healing

Sunday, June 12, 2016 • • Healing
This study looks at the gift of healing as a spiritual gift available to all who believe.


All spiritual gifts work (operate) by faith (not logic) through love.


1 Corinthians 12:27-28 (NIV)

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. 28 And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. 


3 Categories of Spiritual Gifts:




Word of wisdom

Word of knowledge

Discerning of spirits



Interpretation of tongues

 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. Mark 16:17-18 (see also Matthew 5:44)

The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, Because He did anoint me;

 To proclaim good news to the poor, Sent me to heal the broken of heart,

To proclaim to captives deliverance, And to blind receiving of sight,

To send away the bruised with deliverance- Luke 4:18 (YLT)


Myths about Healing:

  1. Unconfessed sin stops healing. (Who sinned? John 9:1-3)

  3. Generational Curses (Galatians 3:10-14)

  5. God doesn't want to heal everyone. (Jesus healed all. Acts 10:38)

  4. Distance. (Psalm 107:20; Matthew 8:5-13)
  5. Emotional. (Proverbs 17:22)

"Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you."

"He himself bore our sins" in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; "by his wounds you have been healed." – 1 Peter 2:24

  • ...healing doesn't always look the way we expect or want
