Jesus Christ healed the sick and gave authority and power to His followers to do the same in His Name, by His power and through the Virtue of His BLOOD that was shed on Calvary's Cross for us! - Pastor Max Solbrekken

     Thank you so much for writing. Without doubt, we are seeing an escalation of sickness and disease across the globe, even as medical science tries to keep abreast through extensive  research. 
     It was even worse during the time of Moses, when God made a Covenant of Healing with the nation of Israel, based upon the Coming Messiah King, Whom we know to be Jesus Christ.
     Here it is: "If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in His sight, and wilt give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee." (Exodus 15: 26)
     Again the Word of God states: "And ye shall serve the Lord your God and He shall bless thy bread and thy water, and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee." (Exodus 23: 25)
     Although sickness and disease were rampant, God protected His people and made them well from those plagues! The Psalmist David built on those promises when he exclaimed: "Bless the Lord O my soul and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities: Who healeth all thy diseases."(Psalms 103: 1-3) 
      Here is the answer to the question why divine healing was pledged by Almighty God to His people: "Surely He hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 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." (Isaiah 53: 4,5)
      The Bible states: "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. That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself`took our infirmities, and bear our sicknesses." (Matthew 8: 16, 17)
      The Bible is it own best commentator. Here St. Peter states: "Who His own Self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: By Whose stripes ye were healed." (1 Peter 2: 24) 
      Believe that, my dear friend. Cast yourself on God's mercy. Remember, that divine healing is a GIFT from God because of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ Who purchased our salvation through His vicarious death for us all and glorious resurrection from the dead!
      Our precious Saviour invites us to pray and expect an answer: "Ask and it shall be given you, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth ' and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." (Matthew 7: 7,8)
      Ask our heavenly Father in His dear Son's name to cleanse you from all sin, fear, oppression, bitterness, unforgiveness and worry through His BLOOD that was shed for us all on Golgatha so many yeas ago. Then approach Him in humility and faith for an answer to your desperate physical needs as well.
      Agree with us  according to Matthew 18: 19 for your deliverance from all sickness, disease and pain, in Jesus' Name! Amen.
