The Ministry of Healing: An Evidence of the Kingdom of God, the Conclusion By John L. Hairston, Apostle
As we come to the conclusion of the series of teachings on the Ministry of Healing as an Evidence of the Kingdom of God, I would advise the reader to go back to the last two issues and read the two prior parts. This will bring you up to speed on the contents of this article, which now summarizes the importance of the Ministry of Healing to the Kingdom of God, and as a confirmation of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. Now that we understand WHAT the Kingdom of God is, and the contents and scope of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, we are ready to introduce the evidence of both in the earth as it is manifested and proclaimed by the True remnant Church. We understand that the Gospel of the Kingdom of was the good news that attached to the manifestation of the Kingdom of God in the earth, was the restoration of Man’s dominion of the earth, and the restoration of the good standing of the relationship to God. The Kingdom of God represents the restoration of Man’s dominion over the earth through the Ministry of Jesus (pre-existent and earthly): “Jesus represented and embodied the Kingdom of God being again accessible to Man, through surrender of the Free-Will to the Sovereignty of God, which God's sovereignty may reign in the earth through our submission to the relationship with Him. Jesus shared an unbroken relationship with the Father, He said, He and the Father were ONE. He became a door for the Kingdom of God to come amongst man and operate in the earth. It is our freewill choice to believe in Christ that places us back in union/relationship with God, and restores the Kingdom of God to us.” (The Ministry of Healing: An Evidence of the Kingdom of God, Pt. 1 What is the Kingdom of God?) And now, we understand that the gospel of the Kingdom of God is what prepared the People to receive the restored dominion and authority, in addition to the return to the eternal relationship with the Father: “The Gospel of the Kingdom of God is actually the Good News of the Kingdom of God’s emergence in Jesus Christ. The Good News that Jesus, as a consummation of the Prophetic declaration in Genesis 3:15, is here; God has come, and He has done so with a Kingdom in hand. That in Jesus, we have the reparation of the breach in the relationship between Man and his Father, the restoration of the dominion over our God given portion of the Kingdom of God (The Earth), and the hope of a Millennial Kingdom that will heal the earth of all the results of lust, sin and death, as well as the redemption of the body from physical death.” (The Ministry of Healing: An Evidence of the Kingdom of God, Pt. 2 the Gospel of the Kingdom of God) Now, we have come to where the ministry of Healing is to be a confirmation of, both, the presence of the Kingdom of God operating among the people, and the demonstration of the gospel of the Kingdom of God IN POWER.
The Gift of Healing is two-fold. On the one hand, it is the recovery of the Body from sickness and infirmity. On the other hand, it is the deliverance of the person from demonic oppression and possession (spiritual and demonic warfare). Hold this thought there is a deep and profound revelation here. Matthew 4:23 says: “23 Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. 24 News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them. 25 Large crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea and the region across the Jordan followed him.” (NIV) Now, Jesus Christ did all of this in the process of providing access to the Kingdom of God for humanity, and proclaiming the same. The ministry of Healing was the EVIDENCE that the Kingdom of God was in operation and accessible to the People. Healing was a major priority in the Ministry of Jesus. There aren’t many places in the gospels where we don’t find Jesus casting out demons, breaking the bondage of demonic oppression, healing the sick and infirm. It was the calling card of the Ministry of Jesus Christ. Why was this so important? Not only was the ministry of healing a testimony to the presence and operation of the Kingdom of God, and a confirmation of the gospel of the Kingdom of God, but it was and is a PREVIEW of another feature in the restoration of the Dominion of Man, as in Genesis 1-2. It was a preview or a peek at the restoration of the EDENIC BODY of Man when he was in the Garden of Eden in Genesis. “ 18For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.19For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.22For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.23And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.” The Glorious Body of the Eternal Kingdom of God will be PERFECT, without SICKNESS OR INFIRMITIES, NOT OPPRESSED NOR POSSESSED BY DEMONIC INFLUENCES. So healing comes as a fix or restoration of the Body from sickness, disease, infirmities or attacks of the enemy. Healing is a preview of our glorious bodies that we will have in the future Kingdom of God. It’s as if we are trying on our eternal bodies, a body free and delivered from the curse of sickness, disease, infirmities, or demonic attack. Healing is the fitting room for our Eternal Bodies.
