HEALING IN THE BOOK OF ACfS & HEALING AFfER THE CLOSE OF ACfS - By Robert E. Hanna



Scripture Reading: Acts 5:16, II Timothy 4:20

The Book of Acts covers a period of transition as the  Kingdom Gospel declines and the Gospel of the Grace of God  increases. The longsuffering of God delayed His final setting  aside of His disobedient people Israel, giving them every  opportunity to repent. Although the power to perform  miraculous acts was gradually fading, the gift of healing  remained throughout the entire period. "By the hands of the  apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the  people .. .insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the  street that at least the shadow of Peter might overshadow  them and they were healed every one" (Acts 5:12-16). Not

only the twelve kingdom apostles, but Paul, the apostle to the  Gentiles, maintained healing power. "There sat a certain man  at Lystra, impotent in his feet ... who had never walked .... Paul  said, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked"  (Acts 14:8-10).

Even in the final chapter, Paul is still performing  miraculous deeds. (See Acts 28:3-9.) But as the book closes,  Paul delivers the final word of Israel's setting aside. "The  salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and they will hear  it" (Acts 28:28). From this time forward, Paul's healing power  is over. He tells the ailing Timothy, "Use a little wine for thy  stomach's sake" (I Timothy 5:23); and "Trophirnus have I left  at Miletum-SICK" (II Timothy 4:20).
