Acts 5:14-16

And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women, so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them.

Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.



Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Supernatural healing; does it still occur in our day and age? The Bible definitely talks about miraculous healing, but like all spiritual issues, it is a matter of faith.

When the apostles could not heal the boy who had a demon, Jesus chastised them and said that they could not cast out the demon because of their lack of faith. (Matthew 17:14-21)

Many of us have probably heard testimonies of people who have experienced a supernatural healing; one that cannot be explained by modern medicine. Of course the normal process of healing that we experience every day is a wonderful blessing of God, and something we may take for granted.

The question is not "Does God still heal people today?" but rather, "Is it in God's will to heal in any particular case?" That is where prayer and faith come in; we can trust in God!

God Bless You!

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. How is healing described or categorized by Paul in 1 Corinthians 12?

A. as a gift of the Holy Spirit


Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant... There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit...

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit...

1 Corinthians 12:1-9
