Healing is defined as wholeness of spirit, soul and body (1Thessalonians 5:23-24). Healing of the spirit is concerned with the healing of our relationship with God and release from oppression by the spiritual powers of darkness. Healing of the soul is concerned with the healing of the mind, will and emotions. It is concerned with healing the hurts of the past and becoming released from the effects of trauma. Healing of the body is concerned with physical healing.
Healing begins when we put our trust in Jesus Christ. He is the Lord our Healer. He has made provision for our healing through his death on the Cross (1 Peter 2:24). As a result of his resurrection, he lives to be our Lord. Jesus ministers to people today through the person and work of the Holy Spirit who is described as ‘the Spirit of Jesus’ (Acts 16:7) and ‘the Spirit of Jesus Christ’ (Philippians 1:19).
