According to the dictionary, the literal meaning of “healing” is to make free from injury or disease, make well again, restore to good health, and restore to original purity or integrity.
Healing is one of the most obvious ministries of the Lord Jesus Christ when he was in the world. The word “Therapy” is derived from this Greek word, which means, “treatment intended to relieve or heal a disorder”. So to treat, need to attend to the patient and understand the situation and wait upon the Lord to receive the procedure and serve the patient with the directions given by God.
God may use supernatural ways of healing and deliverance when required, but there is a practical and procedural way given by God according to the word of God. Healing requires fellowship, love, compassion, and commitment. We believe that the ultimate healer is the Lord himself. We who represent the office receive the instructions of the master healer and communicate and declare to the believers. In Mathew 10:8, the Lord clearly gives the orders to the apostles about healing and deliverance.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give – Mathew 10:8. Later in Acts, “Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk – Acts 3:6”.
Binkam Gospel Works believes healing is a ministry given by God. We believe healing is a process to be carefully practiced through prayer and waiting upon the Lord. Praying for the sick is a fundamental ministry in any fellowship and this is part of the healing ministry too.
