Mark 16:17-18 (KJV)
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

John 14:13-14 (KJV)
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

There is healing in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. By invoking the name there is power over the sickness or disease. The Psalmist David wrote, “I will praise thee: for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…” In the book of Genesis tells the story of the creation of man. God fashioned man after his likeness and his image without any blemish. It was when man sinned that caused the downhill spiral of being able to live life eternally. The plan of God was to robe himself in flesh to reinstitute eternal life back to man through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. When Jesus walked upon this earth his ministry gave us the greatest example of the kind of ministry he wanted his believers to follow. Before he ascended Jesus spoke that all power was given to him in heaven and in earth. Then he commissioned those who were there at the time of the ascension that he would invoke the power of the Holy Ghost in their lives to carry on the ministry. The book of Acts is exactly as it is named. It is the acts of the Apostles continuing the ministry of Jesus Christ under the authority of his name. In Acts chapter three is the first healing recorded that was performed by Peter by invoking the name of Jesus Christ over a lame man. The man was instantly healed. It was not long before people were experiencing the same signs and wonders at the hands of the apostles. Their faith was soaring to an all time high insomuch that people were brought to the streets in hopes that the shadow of Peter would walk by and they would be healed. Healing was just a small part of their ministry; their major purpose was to reconcile the world back to God through the blood of Jesus Christ by the receiving of the Holy Ghost. The Lord is still pouring out his blessings of healing, but it is our faith in the name that begins the flow. Receive your blessings today, invoke the name over your life, and believe; you shall receive whatsoever you ask.
