“looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…”
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
“how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”
CHRIST THE HEALER
THE GIRDLED TREE
Someone may ask: “How can I say that I am healed, when I see disease in the body and am conscious of pain?” There is an illustration in nature sometimes given which makes the truth clearer. One method of killing a tree is to girdle it, and when we see a tree girdled we think of it as a dead tree. Still its foliage is fresh and green for a while and gives evidence of life. The natural eye sees life. The mind’s eye, which has knowledge beyond what nature beholds, sees death. In time the leaves wither and fall, and death, which the mind’s eye saw from the first, becomes manifest to the senses. So it is when we take healing for the body. As we claim the Word of promise, in faith receiving a finished work, the “sword of the Spirit” strikes the death blow to disease. For a little time symptoms may remain; but the eye of faith which beholds the Crucified
One sees disease canceled and health given. “Calling the things which be not as though they were,” the new life is manifested in the body. That which the eye of faith saw from the first as the truth becomes manifest to the senses. Faith sees God in His love and omnipotence making good the Word.
From “Gems of Truth on Divine Healing”
Being governed by natural sight is unscientific because it does not take into account all the facts. It overlooks the greatest and best of facts. Healing by natural means only is unscientific because it overlooks important facts. It overlooks the supernatural agency in disease as well as the privilege of the supernatural in its recovery.
We thank God for the thousands who have made great spiritual advancement while receiving healing in this way. The process of faith that brings the healing is a far greater blessing than the healing itself. Many throughout the Scriptures became famous for having faith as a result of seeking God for what we call temporal blessings. When we have learned the process of faith for receiving healing, we have learned how to receive everything else God promises us in His Word. The Church could win millions for the service of God, and make them fighters of “the good fight of faith,” by offering to them the healing of Christ purchased for them. May you, dear reader, by learning to be healed in this way, advance into a life of faith and usefulness in the kingdom of God.
