Is Divine Healing In The Atonement?
The Devil knows one of the most important issues to men is their health. In spite of the fact that the curse of death God pronounced as the consequence of sin in Genesis 3 has not been lifted, men are deceived by Satan to believe they can always be healthy if only they know some tricks. He knows men would want to be young and healthy all their lives. But since his unfailing aim is to set them against their Maker, he fabricated the teachings on unending health and bliss. The idea that good health is in the atonement and, should this fail by any means, divine healing is guaranteed once you have ‘faith’ is promoted with vigour by occult people who hold themselves out as ‘men of God’.
Divine Healing In The Atonement?
These deluded people generally quote Isaiah 53:5, “By his stripes we are healed” and promptly proceed to deceive their gullible followers that the Bible provides for guaranteed divine healing if any of them should fall sick. But is this true? Does the Bible indeed provide for guaranteed good health, or failing this, automatic divine healing, as W. F. Kumuyi, Enoch Adeboye, David Oyedepo, Creflo Dollar, Pastor Fatoyinbo, Paul Enenche, Joshua Talena, Joseph Prince, Paul Yongi-cho, Kenneth Copeland, Fred Price, Matthew Ashimolowo, Chris Oyakhilome, Ayo Oritsejafor, Mike Okonkwo, Benny Hinn and thousands of their followers teach? Can anyone use Isaiah 53:5 or any other passage of the Bible to support unending health on Earth?
I advise you check the Bible, starting from the beginning. Death, diseases and illnesses were introduced into the world as a result of sin in Genesis 3.
Gen 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
Has Isaiah 53:5 nullified this curse? Isaiah 53:5 surely speaks of healing; but does it also speak of the DISEASE? Does anyone need to scratch his head to see the DISEASE the punished Person in Isaiah 53 heals people from? Not at all. Anyone with elementary education can see the DISEASE Isaiah 53 is talking about: SIN, INIQUITIES, TRANSGRESSIONS, OFFENCES.
Is it possible the people who spout, “By his stripes we are healed”, as evidence of God’s provision of unending divine health, can not see this? No. Their main aim is to serve their master: their objective is to incite people against God even as they supposedly teach ‘faith’.
Does God Matter?
These preachers remove the core doctrine of the Bible on God’s hatred of sin and man’s need for forgiveness. They remove the doctrine of the heinousness of SIN against a holy God and the punishment of damnation in hell. This is replaced with teachings centered primarily on man’s physical and material needs and wants. They have created a fake theology where man, rather than God, is the focus of attention and the purpose of life. Man, in their theology, exists for himself.

Were The Apostles And Their Followers Always Healthy?
The answer is surely, No.
Paul was sick as he preached in Galatia: Gal 4:13
Epaphroditus was ‘sick, nigh to death’ as he assisted Paul: Philippians 2:27
Trophimus was left ‘sick at Corinth’ by Paul: 2 Timothy 4:20
James taught of Christians being sick : James 5:14
Timothy had ‘often infirmities’ even as he served as bishop in Ephesus: 1 Timothy 5:13
Fakery As Christianity
If Paul ‘preached through infirmity of his flesh’ and Timothy had ‘often infirmities’, what is the source of the permanent health that Word of Faith, Dominion, NAR and Prosperity preachers teach? If Trophimus was left ‘sick at Corinth’ and Epaphroditus was ‘sick nigh to death’, where did William Kumuyi get his teaching of perfect health from? Where did David Oyedepo, Enoch Adeboye, Kenneth Copeland and their band of fake ‘pastors’ get the teaching that ‘Christians’ cannot be sick from? Where did they get the idea that believers have automatic access to unending health and divine healing from?
If this teaching were true how come Mr Kumuyi’s wife died of cancer? How come Kenneth Hagin had five heart surgical procedures if perfect divine health has been made available to people who have ‘faith’? And what ‘faith’ are these people really talking about?
Faith Healers, Fake Christians
These people, obviously, do not have the same faith with Paul, Timothy, Epaphroditus or Trophimus. They have a faith the Bible does not approve of. They are not Christians: they are sinners and rebels against God masquerading as men of God. They are false brethren. Get that clearly: every Word of Faith, Dominion, New Apostolic Reformation and Prosperity preacher is a false Christian.
Divine Healing: A Teaching That Devours Faith
Not many teachings introduced by Satan into the the church destroy faith in God as the teaching of guaranteed and automatic divine healing and unending health. If a tree is known by its fruits, the Source of this teaching can’t be more clearer, since victims, almost to the last person, discovers eventually they have been lied to by people they call ‘men of God’.
Does God Still Heal?
The short answer to this question is, Yes. But does God still heal the same way He did when the Lord Jesus Christ and the Apostles were on Earth? The answer is, No. God does not, generally speaking, suddenly graft limbs and eyes at a twinkling of the eye as when the Lord Jesus Christ was here. Those dramatic miracles were generally to confirm the authenticity of the Messiah. But the Saviour has been made clear to the world. What God requires from everyone now is repentance towards God and faith in the Messiah: the just shall live by faith, Rom 1:17, Hab 2:4.
Insisting that you would not believe the Messiah unless He performs some miracle before you is a sin of presumption: you think God owes you the duty of staging a show for you. You open yourself up to deceiving spirits by such stance. Every preacher teaching that God still does miracles the same way He did when the Apostles were around is deceived and deceiving people: he totally misses the primary purpose of miracles in the Bible.
Does God Heal Through Faith Healers?
The answer to this is, No. God does not heal through anyone who calls himself, or is called, a faith healer. All faith healers are agents of Satan; they are sorcerers, witches and wizards working to divert people’s attention from their sins and the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. These false teachers make health, wealth and human well being, not God and His will, the purpose of life.
The Fingers Of Demons
Deut 13:1-5 In most cases what happens in these faith healing services is make-believe, psycho-somatic, healing: the sick seriously, even though erroneously, believe they were healed. In cases where any verifiable healing by Faith Healers can be proved, the healing is done by demons. God’s Spirit does not play any role in places where God’s words are not respected. Any healing ever done in any place where people disregard God’s command that no two men (men, never women) may speak in ‘tongues’ at any time and that none (men, never women) must even speak in any ‘tongue’ where there are no interpreters, is done by demons, 1 Cor 14:27-28.
This is also the case of any healing done by female ‘pastors’ in open rebellion against God’s injunction that women must not teach in the open church, 1 Cor 14:34-37.
I have Never Healed Anyone – Benny Hinn
Listen to Benny Hinn, the ‘Faith Healing’ specialist, as he admits, under rigorous interrogation, that NO ONE HAS EVER BEEN HEALED under his ‘ministration’. Ever!
The Big Elephant In The Mirror – TIME
Next time any of the fake Word of Faith, Dominionism, NAR, Pentecostal and Charismatic ‘pastors’ tell you of automatic divine health or ‘healing in the atonement’, ask him to show you his pictures of the previous thirty years or even the last ten.
Ask him to explain the reason for the obvious changes and deterioration in his own physical appearances if automatic health and healing are in the atonement.
