Everyone who wanted healing from Jesus was healed. There are two things about illness and healing that you “have to” understand:
- Jesus did not make a single person sick. Not one.
- Jesus healed everyone who wanted to be healed. He did not deny anyone healing.
Who brings sickness — God or the devil?
The devil wants to persuade us that God would make us sick. But this has been exposed as a lie since the oldest book in the Bible. For Job tells us that God did not make Job sick with ulcers, but that it was the devil.
Imagine the scenario: A lot of sick people were brought before Jesus, so He could heal them. Lots of healing miracles all over Galilee (Jesus was “healing every disease and sickness among the people” – Matthew 4:23; NIV). The knowledge of Jesus as a healer spread throughout the country, even “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.” (Matthew 4:24; NIV)
Healing power goes out from Jesus
“Everyone tried to touch him, because healing power went out from him, and he healed everyone.” (Luke 6:19; NLT)
Jesus is not only the greatest healer of all times, but Jesus never changes. Jesus is always healing. Even today (“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” – Hebrews 13:8; NLT).
You don’t have to see Jesus; you don’t have to touch Jesus. As a Jesus-believer, you are closely connected with Him: “You will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.” (Jesus in John 14:20; NLT) Determining everything for you as Jesus-believer is faith. Do you believe that Jesus (1) wants to and (2) can make you whole and healthy?

How close you are to Jesus is also explained by John. He writes, “as He is, so are we in this world.” (1 John 4:17; NKJV) Is Jesus sick in heaven? Of course not. And as healthy as Jesus is, so are you … somewhere in heaven, too? No, John does not say that. He says: Just as Jesus is now, you are “in this world.” You do not have to be sick.
