The Gospel unlocks the door to Spiritual Healing. However Spiritual Healing is not automatic.
Romans 8: 14: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God”.
The Spirit of God operates in the Gospel. If we are willing to abide by the Gospel we can then be the sons of God. In John 14: 16-17 we see that this Spirit is the Holy Spirit. It was called the Spirit of Truth because it would guide the Apostles into all truth (John 16: 13). However no one was promised it until he came from the world to God. (See Galatians 4:6; Acts 5: 32).
The world does not have Spiritual eyes. Therefore one must accept the Gospel and come from the world to Christ to see things Spiritual. This is the road to Spiritual Healing.
The Gospel further unlocks the Spirit as seen in the move to Christ and the Gospel and leaving the Old Law. Christ is the center of the Gospel and the New Law. When you still practice aspects of the Old Law for example tithing you reject Christ and the resurrection. This law was for the Jews under the Mosaic Law however the Gospel and Christ have removed the Old with the New. Follow us now to Galatians for several verses that teach this principle.
Galatians 3: 26: “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus”.
We advise you to read this entire chapter. Here we find Paul revealing that the Gospel is superior to the Law. Therefore it is replaced by the Gospel. Thus one has to abide by the Gospel to gain salvation. Again we remind you there is no way to gain salvation by holding onto ceremonial acts of giving and making sacrifices for sins that the Jews were commanded to do under the Old Law. Jesus Christ has come to replace that with the Gospel. Paul as he writes to the Galatians and the church today reveals that the Gentile Christians at Galatia could be children of God only by faith in Christ Jesus not the Law.
Galatians 5: 18: “But if ye be led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
The Holy Spirit came with the New Law and Christ Jesus. The Spirit noted here is in direct reference to the Holy Spirit and this was the instrument by which the New Testament/New Law would take the place of the Mosaic Law.
It is for sure Brethren that Spiritual Healing comes by way of the Gospel and the Spirit. However one is not led by the Spirit if they hold onto any measure of the Old Law.
