REAL Healing vs FAKE Healing
There are two striking facts in the Book of the Acts of the Apostles concerning the healing worked by them. First, they never announced beforehand that they were going to heal! The modern faith-healers do so. They announce, “On Wednesday there will be a healing service in the afternoon.” The Apostles never spoke in this fashion. I believe the explanation is that they never knew beforehand when the Lord would heal men by their means. They did not possess a kind of permanent power so that all the had to do at any given moment was as it were to press a button. This is what you find. …
Secondly, when the Apostles set out to heal they never failed. I am talking about the Book of the Acts of the Apostles after Pentecost, not about the Gospels. They never tried and failed. Your modern healers try and fail very often because they hold wrong teaching. They do not have the particular command, they have never had the particular commission.
