Ways Jesus Heals
It Can Happen to You
by Pastor John Hamel
“And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a
blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him. And he took the
blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on
his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. After that
he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was
restored, and saw every man clearly.” (Mark 8:22-25)
Some people refuse
to believe that Jesus still heals the sick today. They insist, “The
age of miracles has passed away with the twelve Apostles.”
Bible teaches otherwise. The Bible says that Jesus will never change.
The Bible teaches that all the Healing Gifts of the Spirit still
operate in the Earth today, but only when people believe. (Luke 1:37; 1
Refusing to believe that Jesus still heals will
actually hinder His healing ability. (Mark 6:5,6) Unbelief grieves
God’s Spirit and drives Him away.
There are many ways
Jesus brought healing to people in Bible days. Some were “peculiar”
to say the least.
In the above Bible narrative, Jesus actually spit
on a blind man’s eyes, causing him to see again. Now that’s peculiar!
One day while
living in the Nevada desert I received a frantic phone call. The voice on the other
end was a Minister friend pleading for me to come and pray with him. His car engine had
overheated. While leaning over the engine, shirtless in the
desert heat, the radiator had exploded, severely burning him.
jumped on my motorcycle and raced across town to help him in any way
When I arrived he met me at the door. His face, neck,
chest, stomach and arms were obviously badly burned. Steam burns can
be the worst of all burns, penetrating many layers of skin.
Before I could say
a word, he grabbed my hands, placing them on his burned face while saying,
“In the Name of Jesus.”
As he did this, the heat from his burns left
his face, going right into my hands. I could feel it a it was happening.
He repeated the process of
placing my hands on his neck, chest, stomach and arms, all the while
continuing to say, “In the Name of Jesus, in the Name of
As he moved my hands over
the badly burned areas, the heat from the burns was supernaturally being pulled from
his body into my hands.
a few minutes of repeating this process over and over, my friend
collapsed back onto his sofa exhausted.
He exclaimed, “Whew!
Everywhere your hands came into contact with me,
the heat from the burns would leave me and go right into you. I could feel
it going into you. The
pain is completely gone.”

a burned person cannot bear being touched in burned areas.
however, was a hundred and eighty degrees reciprocal of anything that
normally operates in the natural. He was not only feeling relief as my
hands came in contact with his severe burns, the heat was being drawn out
and away from his burns and absorbed into my hands by the power of the Holy
I could feel the heat coming out of him and going into my hands, it caused
me no discomfort whatsoever.
The next day I went to check on him,
him to be sorely blistered from his waist to his forehead. But he was
not. My Minister friend was
only “slightly pink” everywhere he had been so severely steam burned.
I asked if
he was in any pain. He responded, “No, I told you that it all went into
your hands yesterday. I have no pain at all!”
healing miracle indeed!
Another place in
the Bible, Jesus encountered a deaf man, unable to speak properly.
Jesus put His fingers in the man’s ears, spit once and touched the man’s
tongue. The man began to both hear and speak normally. (Mark

Other times it can come through the simple Prayer of Faith.
way, God promises healing to all who believe.
Do you have need of
healing in your body? It doesn’t matter how
severe your case may appear to be. Nothing’s too difficult
for the God Who created you.
Simply tell Jesus, “You’re my choice for
Savior and Healer.” (Romans 10:13) Then you’ll
qualify for supernatural healing.
miracle of healing is contained in the “greater” miracle of salvation.
