Healing is inseparable from the Gospel as Jesus told the disciples to “heal the sick and bind up the brokenhearted”. People were healed in the disciples shadows as they administered Christ's healing, as they “abided” in Him. You are called to do the same...and greater.
Most certainly I tell you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do
also; and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to my Father.
Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and tell them, even
to the shepherds, Thus says the Lord Yahweh: Woe to the shepherds of Israel who feed
themselves! Shouldn't the shepherds feed the sheep? You eat the fat, and you clothe
you with the wool, you kill the fatlings; but you don't feed the sheep. You haven't
strengthened the diseased, neither have you healed that which was sick, neither have
you bound up that which was broken, neither have you brought back that which was
driven away, neither have you sought that which was lost; but with force and with
rigor have you ruled over them. (Ezekiel 34:2-

those who had seen him after he had risen. He said to them, "Go into all the world,
and preach the Good News to the whole creation. He who believes and is baptized will
be saved; but he who disbelieves will be condemned. These signs will accompany those
who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new languages;
they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will in no way
hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." (Mark 16:14-

by two ahead of him into every city and place, where he was about to come. Then he
said to them, "The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore

ways. Behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves.

Peter and John were going up into the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour.
A certain man who was lame from his mother's womb was being carried, whom they laid
daily at the door of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask gifts for the needy
of those who entered into the temple.
Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive gifts for the needy. Peter, fastening his eyes on him, with John, said, "Look at us." He listened to them, expecting to receive something from them.
But Peter said, "Silver and gold have I none, but what I have, that I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up and walk!" He took him by the right hand, and raised him up. Immediately his feet and his ankle bones received strength. Leaping up, he stood, and began to walk.
He entered with them into the temple, walking, leaping, and praising God. All the
people saw him walking and praising God. They recognized him, that it was he who
used to sit begging for gifts for the needy at the Beautiful Gate of the temple.

them, however the people honored them. More believers were added to the Lord, multitudes
of both men and women. They even carried out the sick into the streets, and laid

overshadow some of them. Multitudes also came together from the cities around Jerusalem,
bringing sick people, and those who were tormented by unclean spirits: and they were
all healed. (Acts 5:12-

lame were healed. There was great joy in that city. (Acts 8:5-

Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and make your bed!" Immediately he arose. (Acts
At Lystra a certain man sat, impotent in his feet, a cripple from his mother's womb,

on your feet!" He leaped up and walked. (Acts 14:8-

book, that you may fear this glorious and fearful name, YAHWEH YOUR GOD; then Yahweh
will make your plagues wonderful, and the plagues of your seed, even great plagues,
and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance. He will bring
on you again all the diseases of Egypt, which you were afraid of; and they shall
cling to you. Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the
book of this law, Yahweh will bring them on you, until you are destroyed.
