The immediacy of spiritual healing

Spiritual healing doesn't have to take time. The perfection of God, and of man as His likeness, is demonstrable truth now.

An invalid, crippled since birth, sat outside a temple, hoping to gather enough coins from passersby to survive. One day two men approached him. Aware that this poor man was expecting something, one of the men admitted he had no money to give him. But then something extraordinary happened. He told the invalid, as the book of Acts relates, "Such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk." The account continues: "And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ancle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God."

Was time required to restore bone structure or develop unused muscles? There was no recuperative period, no gradual buildup of energy and strength. In an instant the course of this individual's life was changed. As disciples of Christ Jesus, the two men, Peter and John, had seen the Master perform many immediate cures through the power of Christ, through the healing, saving Truth that he exemplified. Physical conditions such as leprosy and blindness had quickly yielded to the touch of Christ. Also, Jesus had calmed a raging storm in a moment and had conquered time and space when a boat in which he was traveling was immediately at its destination.
