Divine Healing In the Old Testament part (Morning Coffee Lecture)

There were many different ways that divine healing was achieved in the Old Testament. One method that we didn’t talk about before was the use of rituals. In the Old Testament, rituals were often performed to seek healing from God. These rituals could involve a variety of things, such as:

  • Washing with water
  • Anointing with oil
  • Presenting an offering
  • Praying at the temple

These rituals were seen as a way to show respect for God and seek his favor. Some people believed that if they performed the rituals correctly, God would be more likely to heal them.

There are many examples of rituals being used for healing in the Old Testament. For instance, in 2 Kings 5, Naaman is healed of leprosy after following Elisha’s instructions to wash in the Jordan River. In 1 Samuel 16, David is anointed by Samuel as the future king of Israel, and as a result, he is cured of an evil spirit. In Numbers 12, Miriam is healed of leprosy after Moses prays for her. These are just a few examples of how rituals were used to seek healing from God in the Old Testament.

One thing that’s worth noting about these rituals is that they often required a certain level of faith. People were expected to believe that God had the power to heal them, and to trust that he would do so if they followed the proper rituals.

This element of faith was seen as an important part of the healing process. In some cases, people were even told to demonstrate their faith by doing something difficult, such as walking on hot coals or allowing themselves to be bitten by poisonous snakes.
