Demons must be cast out in order to have instant and permanent relief. (Isa. 53:4-5; Mt. 8:16-17; 1 Pet. 2:24; Jas. 5:14-16) VII. Eighty Lessons Gleaned from a Study of the Bible Cases of Sickness 1.      That divine healing for the body is perfectly scriptural. 2.      That health was natural before sin entered (Gen. 1:26-31; 2:17).

  38. 3.      That death entered through sin as part of the curse (Rom. 5:12-21).                  4.      That the first prophecy and promise of redemption included healing for the body through Jesus Christ (Gen. 3:15; Isa. 53:5; Mt. 8:16-17; 1 Pet. 2:24).  5.      That sickness originated with and is still being propagated by Satan and his demons (Job 2:6-7; Mt. 4:23-24; 15:22; 17:14-21; Jn. 10:10; Acts 10:38). 6.      That the first recorded healing in Scripture was by prayer (Gen. 20:7, 17).

  39. 7.      That the first recorded bodily affliction was the consequence of disobeying God and that when conditions were met, healing was given in answer to prayer (Gen. 20:1-18). 8.      That in all cases of healing in Scripture, prayer, atonement, and spiritual means were used instead of human remedies. 9.      That spiritual means to heal sicknesses and diseases is all that God has provided for man (Exod. 15:26; Mt. 8:16-17; Jas. 5:14; 1 Pet. 2:24).    

  40. 10.     That spiritual means is all that God has promised and commanded to be used in sickness (Jas. 5:14-16; Exod. 15:26; Ps. 91; Mt. 8:16-17; 1 Pet. 2:24).   11.     That God cursed men who did not trust Him in sickness and disease (2 Ki. 1; 2 Chron. 16:12-14; Jer. 17:5-10). 12.     That there is no case recorded in the Scriptures where men got benefits from any other source than by spiritual means. 13.     That multitudes have been healed by spiritual means (Acts 10:38).

  41. 14.     That no Scripture encourages human remedies to cure disease. 15.     That Bible characters used spiritual means in times of sickness (Ps. 38; 103:1-3; 107:20. 16.     That God made a covenant with His people to heal them (Exod. 15:26; 23:23; Lev. 26; Deut. 7:15; 28:1-65; Jas. 5:14-16; Mt. 8:16-17). 17.     That God kept His part of the covenant (Ps. 105:37; 107:20). 18.     That only spiritual means were used by Israel in the wilderness (Exod. 15:26; 32:7-28; Num. 11:1-3; 12:13-16; 21:1-9; Jn. 3:14; Ps. 105:37; 107:20).

  42. 19.     That healing was promised on condition of obedience to God (Lev. 26; Deut. 28; Exod. 15:26; Ps. 91; 107:17-21). 20.     That the brazen serpent, a type of Christ, caused healing (Num. 21:1-9; Jn. 3:14). Should we expect less of Christ, the antitype, than from the type of Christ? 21.     That healing always came unless certain ones had sinned and were under the curse of the law, which had to be upheld (Lev. 10; Num. 11:19-20; 25:1-14).

  43. 22.     That the heathen outside the covenants of God were not promised healing until they came under the terms of the covenants and lived up to them. 23.     That all the plagues upon Israel occurred because of sin. 24.     That eleven out of thirteen plagues upon Israel in the wilderness were caused by the misuse of the tongue 25.     That God did permit the devil to afflict Job, but that God used the affliction to purify and refine him (Job 2:6-7; 42:1-7)

  44. 26.     That God, to bring sinners to repentance, does permit Satan to afflict them (Job 33:12-30; 1 Cor. 5:1-5; 2 Cor. 2:6-11). 27.     That God always healed when the lessons were learned and men came to repentance (Gen. 20:7, 17; Num. 11:2; 12:13-16; 21:1-9; Job 33:12-30; 42:1-12; Ps. 103:3). 28.     That God permits Satan to afflict His people when they go astray (Ps. 38; 103:3; Num. 12:13-16; 21:1-9). 29.     That bodily healing is taught in both Testaments—in every division of the books of the Bible and in almost every book of the Bible.

  45. 30.     That this is the only means God can use to wake some men to their need of God and bring them to repentance (Job 33:12-30; Hos. 6:1). 31.     That divine health, as well as divine healing, was promised when certain conditions were met (Lev. 26; Deut. 28; Exod. 15:26; Ps. 9; Prov. 3:1-8; 12:18; 13:3; 15:4; 18:8, 21; Isa. 58; Jas. 5:14-16). 32.     That Christ came to redeem from both sin and sickness (Isa. 53; 61:1-2; Mt. 8:16-17; 9:1-10; Gal. 3:13; Rom. 8:11; Acts 10:38; 1 Pet. 2:24; 1 Jn. 3:8). 33.     That healing is in fulfillment of prophecy (Isa. 35; 61:1-2; Mt. 8:16-17; 1 Pet. 2:24; Isa. 53:4-5).

  46. 34.     That Jesus proved His claims to sonship by healing (Mt. 4:23-24; 11:3-6; Lk. 4:18-25; 13:32-33; Acts 10:38; 1 Jn. 3:8). 35.     That Jesus authorized the twelve to heal as they went preaching (Mt. 10).

  47. 36.     That He also authorized the seventy to heal as they preached (Lk. 10). 37.     That the disciples were successful in healing and casting out devils before Pentecost (Mt. 10; Lk. 10; Mk. 6:7-13). 38.     That the disciples were authorized to carry on the work of healing throughout this age to confirm the Word of God (Mt. 28:20; Heb. 2:3-4). 39.     That the early believers did confirm the Word by healing (Mt. 16:20; Acts 2:43; 3:1-12; 5:12-16; 6:8; 8:7-13; 11:19-22; 14:3, 27; 15:4, 12; 19:11-12; 28:9; Rom. 15:18-19, 29; 1 Cor. 16:10; Heb. 2:3-4).

  48. 40.     That all disciples throughout this age are commanded to observe all things Christ commanded the early disciples (Mt. 28:20; Acts 1:1-3). 41.     That Jesus commanded the disciples to get definite power to confirm the Word of God before they went out (Lk. 24:49; Acts 1:1-8; Mk. 16:15-20; Jn. 14:12-15). 42.     That Jesus sent the Holy Spirit into the world to carry on the healing ministry that He had started (Acts 1:1-8; 2:33-34; 1 Cor. 12:7-11; Heb. 2:3-4).

  49. 43.     That Jesus promised such power to every believer (Mk. 9:23; 11:22-24; 16:15-20; Jn. 14:12-15; 15:7, 16). 44.     That the gifts of healing are part of the spiritual equipment of the Church (1 Cor. 1:7; 12:7-11; Rom. 12:6-8; 15:18-19, 29; Heb. 2:3-4). 45.     That healing is part of the church work (Jas. 5:14-16; 1 Cor. 12:7-11). 46.     That it is always God's will to heal His children in the New Covenant (Mt. 6:10; 7:7-11; 8:3, 7, 16-17; Mk. 9:23; 11:22-24; 16:15-20; Jn. 14:12-15; 15:7, 16; 16:23-26; Heb. 11:6; Jas. 1:5-9; 5:14-16).
