The 7 Healing Touches of Jesus
Subtopic: His Healing Power
The Gift of Healing:
Matthew 10:1 (KJV)
1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
Matthew 10:1 (AMP)
1 AND JESUS summoned to Him His twelve disciples and gave them power and authority over unclean spirits, to drive them out, and to cure all kinds of disease and all kinds of weakness and infirmity.
We have been given power and authority just like the first disiples. Power against. Power over: "all manner" or "all kinds" of sickness and disease whether physical (cancer, diabetes), emotional, mental (depression, thebipolar, schizephrenia, etc. ), spiritual
(the need for regeneration and cleansing, blind ess and deafness), financial (debt, bad decisions, scams, lack of understanding about money and God's Ecomomic Plan).
Mark 3:15 (KJV)
15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
Mark 16:15-18 (KJV)
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Mark 6:56 (KJV)
56 And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.
Q.Wilt thou be made whole?
Luke 8:46 (KJV)
46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.
O' how wonderful it would be if Jesus would say again, "Somebody has touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me (out of My body, out of My vessels in the earth, out of My sons)
Paul said it like this in Galatians 2:20 (KJV)
20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Acts 5:15 (KJV)
15 Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
"at the least" - "if I could touch the hem of His garment" the woman with the issue of blood purposed in her mind and heart.
"at the least" - "if I could just get you to come before Me so I can overshadow you with my glory and my power so that, MY shadow (you) can pass by the sick and diseased and they be healed.

29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.
4. The Reassurimg Touch- Matthew 17:1-8 (KJV)

2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.

8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
Spiritual Healing: Luke 4:18-19 (KJV)
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Revelation 22:1-2 (KJV)
1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
Q. What kind of leaves are on your tree? Is there healing in your leaves?
Disease Spiritual: Mark 2:16-18 (KJV)
16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?
17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
All I want to know is will you be made whole? Will you commit unto the Lord your sickness and/or disease and receive His healing power that flows through His healing touch?
