Matt 4:23-24

23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

(KJV)

Matt 8:2-17

2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

4 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,

6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

14 And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.

15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.

16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:

17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

(KJV)

Matt 8:28-34

28 And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes,
there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding
fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.

29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus,
thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding.

31 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go
away into the herd of swine.

32 And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the
herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep
place into the sea, and perished in the waters.

33 And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told
every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.

34 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him,
they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.

(KJV)

Matt 9:1-7

1 And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.

2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and
Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good
cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man
blasphemeth.

4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your
hearts?

5 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise,
and walk?

6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins,
(then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto
thine house.

7 And he arose, and departed to his house.

(KJV)

Matt 9:18-33

18 While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler,
and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy
hand upon her, and she shall live.

19 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.

20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve
years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:

21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be
whole.

22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of
good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from
that hour.

23 And when Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels and the
people making a noise,

24 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And
they laughed him to scorn.

25 But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand,
and the maid arose.

26 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.

27 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and
saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us.

28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus
saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea,
Lord.

29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See
that no man know it.

31 But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that
country.

32 As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a
devil.

33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes
marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.

him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse
him.

11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have
one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold
on it, and lift it out?

12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do
well on the sabbath days.

13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it
forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.

(KJV)

him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is
grievously vexed with a devil.

23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him,
saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house
of Israel.

25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and
to cast it to dogs.

27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from

hour.

16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.

17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long
shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.

He gave power and Authority to the Deciples

Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve
disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to
heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called
Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;

3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of
Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;

4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the
way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils [NKJV:
demons]: freely ye have received, freely give.

Mark 6:7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to
send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

Mark 6:13 And they cast out many devils [NKJV: demons], and anointed with oil
many that were sick, and healed them.

Jesus Gave Us Authority Cast Out Demons: The Great Commission:

Mark 16:15-18.. the “Great Commission.” It says, “Go into all the
world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized
will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 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.” And Matthew 28:19-20 records a bit more of what Jesus
said regarding the great commission. “Go therefore and make disciples of
all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of
the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you;
and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Luke 10:1 After these things the Lord appointed other
seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and
place, whither he himself would come.

2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers
are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth
labourers into his harvest.

Luke 10:8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such
things as are set before you:

9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is
come nigh unto you.

Luke 10:17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying,
Lord, even the devils [NKJV: demons] are subject unto us through thy name.

18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over
all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you;
but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Acts 5:12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs
and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in
Solomon’s porch.

13 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified
them.

14 And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and
women.)

15 Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on
beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might
overshadow some of them.

16 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem,
bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they
were healed every one.

Acts 8:5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and
preached Christ unto them.

6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip
spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.

7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were
possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were
healed.

8 And there was great joy in that city.

Acts 9:32 And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout
all quarters, he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda.

33 And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, which had kept his bed eight
years, and was sick of the palsy.

34 And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and
make thy bed. And he arose immediately.

35 And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to the Lord.

 

God Has Give Us Authority Like Paul Healed:

Acts 14:8 And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being
a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked:

9 The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that
he had faith to be healed,

10 Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.

Acts 16:16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel
possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much
gain by soothsaying:

17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants
of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.

18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the
spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he
came out the same hour.

Acts 19:11 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:

12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons,
and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

Acts 20:6 And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened
bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.

7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break
bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued
his speech until midnight.

8 And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered
together.

9 And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen
into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and
fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.

10 And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not
yourselves; for his life is in him.

11 When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and
talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed.

12 And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.

Acts 28:7 In the same quarters were possessions of the chief man of the
island, whose name was Publius; who received us, and lodged us three days
courteously.

8 And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a
bloody flux [NKJV: dysentary]: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid
his hands on him, and healed him.

9 So when this was done, others also, which had diseases in the island, came, and
were healed:

10 Who also honoured us with many honours; and when we departed, they laded us
with such things as were necessary.

James 5:14 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.

16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be
healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Jesus gave all believers the same authority

He gave power and authority to his disciples to heal the
sick and cast out demons.

Now, lets look at what a disciple is:

A disciple is a “follower of Jesus.” It is a person who has heard and
believed the good news.. that Jesus died for your sins (so you don’t have to)
then He rose from the dead and conquered the power of sin and death.

What does not make you a disciple:

  • Attending church
    does not make you a disciple.
  • Having prayed the
    “sinner’s prayer” and then continuing to live like you did before you
    prayed it does not make you a disciple.

A true disciple is:

  • If you are a
    disciple, then the Holy Spirit lives inside of you and He works to change you
    to be more like Jesus, and you choose to cooperate with Him.
  • If you are a
    disciple, you are developing intimacy (close friendship) with God and you are
    learning to hear His voice, and you are committed to obey what He tells you to
    do.
  • God will begin to
    work in your heart to change your very desires (as per Psalm 51) to line up
    more closely with His desires.

Does that mean we don’t ever sin
again?

No – we are all sinners and fall
short of the glory of God.

 

Jesus Gave Us Authority to Heal

We don’t just have
authority to heal the sick, Jesus actually commanded us to do so. He started by
giving this authority and command to His disciples. He did this in Luke 9:1-2.
It says, “Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power
and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the
kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” Verse 6 says, “So they departed
and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.”
Do you see this… Jesus gave them the authority and guess what.. it worked
when they tried it. They used Jesus’ authority to pray for the sick, just like
Jesus told them to, and the sick were healed. I imagine this was a pretty big
thrill for the disciples the first few times they tried it … and it worked!

Also, look at John
14:12-14 .. Jesus tells us that are given authority to do whatever things He
did and work the same works Jesus did. Jesus healed the sick, didn’t He? So
John 14:12-14 tells us that we can heal the sick too… but verse 15 gives the
condition for moving in this healing authority. It says, as we have discussed
earlier, “If you love me, you will obey me.” So again we see the tie
between moving in Jesus power and authority and in a lifestyle of obedience to
Him.. e.g, being His disciple.
