Scripture: II Kings 5:1-3
Israel was well known for their prophets. One of the signs of a true prophet was a healing ministry. In this passage Naaman, a Syrian commander in the army, was plagued with leprosy. He had, at some point in time, taken an Israelite slave girl. This young servant’s comment to her mistress was, “If only my master were with the prophet who is in Samaria! For he would heal him of his leprosy.” Bible representatives of God were well known for the healings that accompanied them, and the end-time church should be well known for its healing gifts as well. If the Lord is among us, the anointing to heal should be among us as well. These scriptures concerning healing are the kind of seeds we want to sow until this healing anointing grows into its end-time promised status. It is obvious that the church is not there yet. However, it was commonplace in Scripture and it needs to be commonplace again.
