33. Healing proves the resurrection of Christ and the descent of the Holy Spirit NT Covenant (Acts 1:4-8; Acts 2:33; Acts 3:16; Acts 4:12; Romans 8:11).   

34. God has provided all necessary means of healing and complete defeat of satanic powers NT Covenant (2 Cor. 10:4-5; Ephes. 6:10-18; Mark 16:15-20; John 14:12-15; James 4:7; James 5:14-16; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 Peter 5:7-9).

35. Healing is always the will of God for His people who may: "ask what you will". NT Covenant (John 15:7); "whatsoever" (Matthew 21:22; John 14:12-15; John 15:16); "anything" (John 14:14); "what things so ever you desire" (Mark 11:22-24); and "much more" than earthly parents would or could give their children (Matthew 7:7-11).

Thus, it is clear in Scripture that physical healing is provided for in the Old and New Testaments. The New Testament is based upon better promises than the Old Testament (Hebrews 8:6) (1 Thessalonians. 2:13)

Start believing the truth, study, speak the WORD to yourself, get the truth inside, post the WORD around the house, declare it openly.
