  • Discuss some variables that affect healing.


Why don’t more people get healed? Why are some healed while others are not? Why are very shallow and worldly Christians sometimes healed while more sincere and dedicated people have not yet received healing? These are some of the questions you face when you begin to minister healing and deliverance. This lesson concerns variables that affect healing. A “variable” is a factor that causes variations or different results.

God promised healing in His Word. We must remember, however, that every promise of God is conditional on the response of man. This is why it is important to understand the variables that affect healing.
