I want you to know me as your brother, and not as a Divine healer. That's just a name that newspapers and magazines tacked on. There's no one that's a Divine healer. No man can heal you…Even Christ, the Son of God, did not claim to be a Divine healer. He said, "It's not Me that doeth the works; it's My father that dwelleth in Me, He doeth the works."
So if Jesus, our lovely Saviour, Who would not take credit for being a healer, how much more ought we to disown that credit of being a healer. We only pray for the sick.
And it's faith that you're healed, by faith are you healed. Now, before you can have faith-- I find that many people come to faith in a kind of a haphazard way, if you'll excuse that expression, kinda like they're making a guess at it. And ninety percent of the people that comes into the line have hope instead of faith.
Now, hope is one thing and faith is another. Faith is a positive sense. It's not a guess work; you don't just imagine it. It's just as real as any other sense of your body, just the same as sight is. Sight is real. Hearing is real. See, taste, feel, smell, and hear, the five senses of the body that control the body, they're real faculties to you if none of them's injured. And then, faith is just as real as any of the other five senses, and more real, because it'll go in and above those five senses.
Now, the first and fundamental cause of Divine healing is because God said so in His Bible. That's the only-- That's the sure foundation, is the Word of God.
