Healing Through the Word


The healing anointing is manifested in several

ways and we can see it in the scripture as healing through

the Word. Psalm 107:20 says, “He sent his word, and

healed them.” Whenever the Word of God is spoken in

faith from the lips of a believer, then God’s healing power

is activated. Jesus often spoke the word and many were



Remember the story of the centurion who came to

Jesus seeking healing for his servant? The centurion said

to Him, “Speak the word only, and my servant shall be

healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers

under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to

another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do

this, and he doeth it” (Matthew 8:8, 9). Jesus said that had

not found so great faith in all of Israel. The centurion’s

servant was healed when Jesus spoke the word.


Healing Through the Gifts


We find that as God begins to use individuals in

the operation of the gifts of the Spirit, they begin to

function through that individual according to the

proportion of his faith and according to his character.

First Corinthians 12:9, 10 speaks of the three

power gifts of the Spirit. These gifts are given to the

Church to do something. They are the supernatural gifts.


The gift of faith is a supernatural manifestation of

God’s faith imparted to man at a specific time, at a

specific place, for a specific purpose. When that gift

begins to operate, a great boldness comes in an

individual’s life. As supernatural faith is poured into your

life, there is no room for doubt and unbelief. Those two

terrible twins from hell leave when the gift of faith is in



The gifts of healing is a supernatural gift of God’s

healing power for divers diseases without the use of

doctors or medicine. When the gift is in operation, many

are healed all over the place of divers diseases. Many

times you will see the gifts of healing operating with the

word of knowledge.


The gift of working of miracles is a supernatural

intervention of God in the course of nature and it can be

in the area of creative miracles. Acts 19:11, 12 says,

“And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:

So that from his body were brought unto the sick

handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from

them, and the evil spirits went out of them.”


Healing Through the Laying on of Hands


Mark 16:17,18 says, “These signs shall follow

them that believe: In my name…they shall lay hands on

the sick, and they shall recover.” We will discuss this

later in a chapter about the laying on of hands.

There is healing by the laying on of hands, but

also healing through the Word because God’s Word is

anointed. The Word will heal when mixed with faith in

the heart of the individual.


There is also healing through the gifts of the

Spirit. We need to realize the healing anointing flows in

different ways through different people.


God might use one minister in one way and then

another in a different way. We must never put God into a

box. God will not be dictated to by anyone. God is a God

of variety, of diversity. I will discuss this in more detail in

the chapter on the healing anointing.


You can minister by the laying on of hands, by a

tangible anointing, or by faith in the Word of God and see

healings take place. God does grace people with a special

anointing to minister to the sick. One can also believe

Mark 16 and lay hands on people in faith in the name of

Jesus and see great things take place.


Different Callings Mean Different Anointings


I personally believe that the anointing is

dependent upon the callings placed in the lives of

ministers. We know that the scripture also says, “Stir up

the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my

hands” (Second Timothy 1:6). One can either stir it up or

let it lie dormant.


For example, the parable of the talents comes to

mind as we think of the one man who was given one

talent and another was given two talents and another five.

The man with one talent buried his and ended up losing



As the saying goes, if you don’t use it, you’ll lose

it. We must be faithful with that which God has given us.

If we are faithful with the little, God will make us a ruler

over much.


Different Strokes for Different Folks


One ministry will emphasize healing, another

preaching or teaching, another salvation, another the

baptism of the Holy Spirit. It is because of this diversity

that we need to recognize the whole Body of Christ and

to understand that we need each other. The foot cannot

say to the hand, “I have no need of you.” And the eye

cannot say to the ear, “I do not need you.” If the whole

body were an eye, where would the hearing be? (First

Corinthians 12:15-17). We need one another.


Don’t try to work out with your mind another

man’s anointing. If he is getting results and people are

getting saved, healed, and set free, then glorify God for

his wondrous works among men.


Look beyond the vessel and see the glory of God,

for the scripture says we have this treasure in earthen

vessels. In these last days, God is raising up a group of

people who will flow together and stop criticizing one

another and will accomplish great things for the Body of



It’s All in the Anointing


There is a difference between the fivefold

ministry and the laity, and the difference is the anointing.

In our understanding of the anointing, we have to realize

that it’s God’s grace upon man. In the book of Acts, the

Bible says, “When they saw the boldness of Peter and

John, and perceived that they were unlearned and

ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of

them, that they had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13).


God anoints us in our daily walk with Him. Every

child of God has a ministry of reconciliation, but

everyone is not called to the fivefold ministry. In

Ephesians 4:7, the scripture says, “But unto every one of

us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of

Christ.” You could say, “But unto every one of us is

given ability, enablement, or anointing according to the

measure of the gift.”


Calling equals anointing and ability. God will not

call you to do something without giving you the ability to

get the job done. Those whom God calls, He anoints and
