Healed through faith …

“Faith in Jesus’ name put this man, whose condition you know so well, on his feet—yes, faith and nothing but faith put this man healed and whole right before your eyes. Acts 3:16

Several years ago, an elderly friend dying of cancer went on a  Spiritual Healing Journey to John of God – Brazil trip. She was very weak, but no one could talk her out of going on this long trip from Arizona. I had never heard of John of God healer but learned as a young teenager, Joao de Deus became a spiritual healer through trance mediumship after an incident when bathing at the river. A radiant woman, who later turned into a ball of light, directed him to a spiritual center where after three hours with no memory of what had transpired, he awoke to find people surrounding him and became the vessel for people to be healed. This humble, uneducated man declares, “I have never healed anyone. It is God who heals.”

The apostle Peter healed a man crippled from birth. People around him wondered of his ability to heal. And, he made sure everyone understood he didn’t heal the man, but faith in Jesus made this man walk.

My friend had a strong faith and had a heavenly healing shortly after returning from her journey to John of God. However, during her final days on earth, she experienced a spiritual healing that gave her peace.

Lord, give us faith to seek healing of our body, mind, and soul. Amen.
