Was it God or man that put an end to divine healing in today's Church? This is the question that led author, Reverend Jim Lynn, on a three year long study. What he learned and shares in his book will have a profound influence on the Church and deepen your faith.
The Miracle of Healing in Your Church Today sets forth that all healing is at once divine and timeless, not something relegated to a chapter in the book of life. The book makes a compelling case for the Christian Church to become the healing Center God created Her to be.
"This book is a long-needed explanation of the mission and role of healing in the Christian community, "says Lynn. "Churches today are failing because they believe God no longer heals. The book does not question the legitimacy of the modern medicine, but questions why the Church today has severed divine healing from its divine calling. The book serves to put god back into healing, and healing back into the Church.
Critical at times, the book condemns secular medicine that harms or even kills in the name of healing. "Medicine that harms is of evil. Medicine that heals is of God and never harms," says Lynn. "In God's medicine chest there is no such thing as 'acceptable risk', only healing. Our good health is not a matter of chance but a birthrght."
We hear discussion today about integrated medicine. God's concept of integrated medicine is the physician, patient and Church all working together as partners (spiritual warriors). This form of medicine never harms, never kills. The human body, spirit and soul are considered as one, with each part affecting the whole. Above all, God in Jesus Christ is acknowledged as Yehovah-rapha, the God of healing.
Filled with illustrations people can relate to, the book is an easy read and difficult to put down. Readers will learn why people suffer, why so few are healed when prayed for, read of healings modern medicine cannot explain, and learn why the Church mission is unfulfilled without a healing ministry.
