In this heartwarming video, pastor Deon Hockey performs a miracle through Christ’s power. You’ll see the pastor heal a small boy who was formally paralyzed and deaf. Although the language in the video makes it difficult to understand exactly what is being said, it is obvious a healing is taking place.
What The Bible Says About Healing
There are countless instances of healing and miracles in the Bible. Jesus performed some of these miracles Himself, during his earthly ministry, while others were performed by his disciples and other believers. According to scripture, believers are able to harness the power of God through Christ and pray for healing for themselves and others. The following are a few examples from the word of God:
- Mark 9:23 “‘If you can’?’ said Jesus. ‘Everything is possible for one who believes.'”
- Luke 8:50 “Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, ‘Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.'”
- Luke 18:27 “Jesus replied, ‘What is impossible with man is possible with God.'”
What This Means For Believers
The Bible is full of instances of miracles as mentioned earlier. There is the feeding of the crowd with just a few fish and loaves, there is Jesus turning the water into wine at a wedding, the virgin birth and countless others. As believers, we must not make the mistake of assuming miracles are no longer applicable. While they might not look the same today as they did in Biblical times, they still happen. Whether or not you personally believe in healing services, like the one depicted in the video, believing in Christ’s ability to still perform miracles is wise. After all, the fact that you are alive and able to come to know Christ is a type of miracle in and of itself.
