By His Shadow There Was Healing
Yesterday we asked about supernatural healing as spoken about in Acts and the power that flowed through Peter and John and being the vessels for healing others. Not just healing bones and organs, but far more importantly healing broken spirits. Supernatural healing continues to be the topic today. We find that just as Jesus was able to heal a woman, whom had been bleeding for a decade or more, by her absolute unflinching belief. All she had to do was get close enough to Jesus to touch His garment and she was healed.
Jesus ask in Mark 5 – 31 Who touched me? 32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. 33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
We find in Acts chapter 5 that people would place their loved ones in the path where Peter’s shadow would be cast over their sick and ailing family and be healed simply by being in Peter’s shadow. WOW! I ask yesterday, and will continue to ask, can we be the same type of vessel as Peter? Can we be the conduit to allow the Holy Spirit to heal those around us? Once again, Jesus did not mix words about this very topic.
It was not made 100% clear in chapter 4 that unclean spirits (what I refer to as “broken spirits”) were being healed. Chapter 5 removes any question and all doubt. Our God is above all.
Acts 5 NKJV
12 And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch.
13 Yet none of the rest dared join them, but the people esteemed them highly.
14 And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women,
15 so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them.
16 Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.
