In conclusion, then, in my opinion, physical healing like every other blessing from God is in the At-one-ment or reconciliation, but not in the Atonement or expiation for sin. For sickness is not morally wrong and does not call for the sentence of death as sin does, nor did it need any kind of expiation by Christ.
To continue then in our consideration of Divine Healing, it would seem that in the Bible it falls under three heads:
(1) The healing of unbelievers through evangelists in order to confirm the Divine nature of their message, and convince their hearers that God is a God of love (Mark 16:15-20).
(2) The routine healing of members of the Church of God through the prayer of the elders and the anointing with oil. This is a matter of corporate Church Life, when the determined prayers of the whole church may be needed, and where sins, if any, may need to be confessed (James 5:14-18).
(3) "The Gifts of Healings" given by the Lord to one of His servants to hand on to anyone whom He may desire to heal for some purpose of His own. Each separate healing is a separate gift and there is no such thing as a "gift" of being able to heal everybody at will. It is not a "gift of healing", but "gifts of healings".
Typical cases of these gifts are to be found (a) in the Old Testament, 2 Kings 5:8, where Elisha had Naaman's healing in his hand, though there were many lepers in Israel for whom he could do nothing! (Luke 4:27), and Isaiah received the gift of Hezekiah's healing just after he had told him that he was going to die! (2 Kings 20:4-5),
