When Jesus started His ministry, in the synagogue in His hometown, He took the Scroll and read a passage from the Prophet Isaiah. That reading was Jesus’ mission statement.. He then proceeded to fulfill that mission over the next three years. Then, when He rose from the temple mount to join the Father in Heaven, He gave his followers the authority to minister in His stead. There is ample scriptural support for that. Most of all, when He was crucified on the Cross on Calvary He gained for us, His followers, total salvation (body, soul, and spirit). Healing was part of the atonement. We operate under that authority in the Healing Rooms today. Healing of sickness and disease was already accomplished then, and now we cooperate with Jesus and the person we are praying for. to see their healing manifested.
