A good case can be made that Jesus was ministering inner healing when He spoke to the woman at the well, who then went into the city proclaiming, “Come, see a man who told me all the things that I have done” (John 4:29). Jesus may have been healing her entire life. Those of us who practice inner healing are convinced it is not only Scriptural but a main theme in God’s Word. (Please refer to Scripture list handout).
Is Inner Healing Scriptural? Let’s examine two examples
Luke 6:46-49—John 21:1-17
What is Inner Healing?
Inner healing is applying the redemptive and healing work of Christ to the areas of darkness and bondage in our souls that have not received the healing light of Jesus Christ and have opened the door for the enemy to come in and keep us from walking in victory in that darkness or bondage area. The tools of inner healing are the spiritual disciplines including prayer, confession, forgiveness, and counsel which allows us to walk in the Light and Truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The focus of inner healing is identifying the unhealed areas of darkness that gave the demonic permission to operate in that area, confess these areas of sin, repent for the behavior resulting from these unhealed areas, and allowing the Christ to cleanse and heal. (Colossians 1:9-14)
Sometimes things just pop up in sessions with the Holy Spirit. Things that have been hidden and can and do cause problems. Proverbs 4:23 tells us: Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring (pop up) the issues of life.
Are Both Deliverance and Inner Healing Needed for Freedom?
Yes! Deliverance, which tells the enemy to leave, without inner healing leaves the door open for the demonic influences to return to those access areas and attempts to lead the person back into bondage. Inner healing, which closes the door or access point to the enemy, without deliverance, allows the spirits of darkness to continue to attempt to lead the person back into sinful behavior or unhealthy ways of thinking. When the spirits have been ordered to leave, they cannot return if there is cleansing, healing, and filling with the presence of God in the areas where they had operated.
We offer Inner Healing and Deliverance to any who desire to draw closer to our Lord and to hear the Holy Spirit for themselves.
