Seven Ways to Get Healed

Rhema TeamSeptember 2021 WOFLeave a Comment


Scripture contains several methods through which healing can be obtained. Because everyone’s faith is not on the same level, God has provided seven ways to receive physical healing. God doesn’t leave us stranded. If we cannot rise to meet Him on His level, He will come down to ours.

  1. Demand In Jesus’ Name That Sickness Leave.

ACTS 3:1–3, 6

1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.

2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. . . .

6 Then 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.

Throughout the Book of Acts, the apostles did not pray for the sick. Peter and John commanded in Jesus’ Name (it says in the Greek) that the lame man at the Gate Beautiful rise and walk.

We can demand in Jesus’ Name that people be healed. We are not demanding it of God; we are demanding that the devil turn them loose.

  1. Pray to the Father In Jesus’ Name.

JOHN 16:23–24

23 In that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

“In that day” refers to the day we are living in. Praying to the Father in Jesus’ Name belongs to us today.

When Jesus ascended to Heaven, He sat down at the Father’s right hand (Heb. 1:3). When that happened, a new day dawned—the New Covenant began.

John 16:24 says, “Ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.” This includes all prayer, but healing is involved here too. How can we be joyful if our loved ones are sick? It’s our right to ask for healing.

    Believers should understand that healing was consummated in Christ. Knowing that in their spirits will be the end of sickness and disease in their bodies.

    1. Agree In Prayer.

    MATTHEW 18:19–20

    19 . . . If two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

    20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

    When two people agree in prayer, Jesus causes what they agree on to happen. When they unite and demand healing in Jesus’ Name, their prayers are answered.

    Jesus talks about “two of you” in verse 19. Some think if they get enough people—maybe 1,000 or even 10,000—they will get results. But only two are needed. Jesus never said we had to get the entire church to agree.

    1. Anoint With Oil.

    JAMES 5:14–15

    14 Is any sick among you? 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:

    15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

    There should not be any sick among us. But if there are, the elders of a church can pray for them, so they are healed.

    If someone has missed it and sinned, help is also available. Church people often expect someone who was saved Sunday night to fully grow and mature spiritually by Wednesday night. But they’re just babes in Christ, and we ought to carry them on our faith until they can believe for themselves.

    1. Lay Hands on the Sick.

    MARK 16:17–18

    17 These signs shall follow them that believe; . . .

    18 . . . they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

    Every Christian should practice this. Parents can lay hands on their children if they are sick. They shouldn’t have to send for somebody else. James 5:16 says, “Pray one for another, that ye may be healed.”

    Some people are not on a level where they can receive healing on their own. But any believer can lay hands on them. Laying on of hands is a point of contact to release our faith. That is the point where the sick person believes they receive their healing.

    If the sick person believes it is done when hands are laid on them, they will receive healing. This principle is found in Mark 11:24: “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”

    Believe that you receive it, and you will have it. The having comes after the believing.

    1. Receive Through Gifts of Healing.

    1 CORINTHIANS 12:7, 9

    7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. . . .

    9 To another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

    Among the spiritual gifts God placed in the Church are the gifts of healing. They are supernatural manifestations of healing power working through one individual to another.

    The Holy Spirit initiates the manifestation of the gifts of healing. We can’t make them work anytime we want. It’s as the Spirit wills.

    1. Know That Healing Belongs to You.

    ISAIAH 53:5

    5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

    The best method by which we can be healed is knowing that healing is part of God’s redemptive plan and that it belongs to us. When sickness tries to attack, we don’t let it in because Jesus already paid the price for it on the cross.

    Because we know we are healed, we won’t need to have hands laid on us. Nor will we need the manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit. We receive healing with our own faith.

    Believers should understand that healing was consummated in Christ. Knowing that in their spirits will be the end of sickness and disease in their bodies.

    But not all believers have been taught how to receive healing by standing on God’s Word. And they can’t operate beyond their knowledge. That is why God provided different methods for them to be healed.
