To another gifts of healing by the same Spirit. I Corinthians 12:9
Healing, like faith is not reserved for someone with the gift because all born again believers have the authority in the name of Jesus to heal the sick and to cast out demons! Although someone might have an extraordinary gift of healing we all have access to God's healing power!
Some today think that Jesus only gave this power of divine healing to His twelve disciples, but that is simply not true. We as believers are all healed by His sacrificial death, burial and resurrection and we are all equipped to heal others by the baptism of His Holy Spirit who empowers us to lay hands on the sick, anoint with oil and to cast out demons!
The great commission commands us to GO and heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead! This is available to all who believe and follow the Lord Jesus Christ! These signs and wonders are to open the eyes of the lost and to convict the sinner to be saved by the awesome power of the Most High God!
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen. Mark 16:15-20
