THE WORD THAT HEALS

The "Word," as used by St. John, is the Logos or divine thought conveyed to man. This meaning has been adopted by theologians to express the manner in which God may manifest himself to humanity. We find frequent reference in the Bible to "the Word," particularly in St. John's Gospel,—"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God. . . . And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." "The Word" as here used, is commonly understood to mean the Holy Scriptures, or some particular revelation of God to man. This phrase, "The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us," deals especially with the expression of Mind as given in the Scripture,—"He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions."

The Word of God as uttered by the ancient prophets, and later by the apostles, frequently healed the sick. The power of the Word, if it be uttered with the conviction of understanding and demonstration, begets health and the "beauty of holiness." It is made practical through its manifestation in physical healing. "And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following."
