Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth (Luke 18:8)?
There are all kinds of ways for healing to be “acquired.” One is by asking for it in prayer. That kind of praying acknowledges that you don’t know you have already been healed by the stripes of Jesus; it means you are still a baby Christian, and as such, God answers your prayers. Another way is by the Word of God. You have learned that you can collect many Scriptures on healing, recite them to the sickness afflicting you, and command the sickness to leave. I’ve known people to be healed by taking communion. They are ones with deep affection for the Body and Blood of Jesus and trust the elements to convey His blessing. I like receiving my healings by speaking to the sickness and commanding it to leave in the name of Jesus. That name carries all power in the universe, and I like using it. But Mark associates healing with faith.
And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction." (Mark 5:34).
Then Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your faith has made you well." And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road (Mark 10:52).
I don’t need to recount these two stories because the statements of Jesus explain the Truth. Your faith has made you well.
