Three Cord Ministries
Healing and Wellness

What the Bible says and what we've experienced.

Marg and I know by first-hand experience that God desires to and does heal today. He heals physical, mental, spiritual and relational sicknesses, delivers from addictions and bondages and restores broken lives. We may think that we are not worthy or don't have enough faith or don't deserve His healing in our lives.

That is wrong, unbiblical thinking! Indeed, nearly ALL of the people who Jesus healed were not believers nor were they spiritual giants 'full of faith'.

Most were broken hearted, poor in spirit and unable to help themselves - these are exactly the people who Jesus wanted to heal then, and wants to heal now.

Here are some of the many Scriptures that show us His promises about healing. Read them, believe them and pray through them for your healing, restoration and wholeness in Jesus' name.

Some Biblical Examples of Healing 


Who was healed?

From what?

How did healing happen?

Matthew 8:1-4

A man


The man had said "If you want to, you can make me well again" Jesus touched him and replied "I want to."

Matthew 8: 5-13

The Roman officer's servant

Paralysis & Pain

By His word. Jesus said "Go on home. What you have believed has happened" after the man said "Just say the word."

Matthew 9:19



The woman touched His garment and power flowed out. Jesus said "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace you have been healed"

Matthew 9: 29

Two men


Jesus touched their eyes after he asked them "Do you believe I can make you see?" They replied yes. Jesus then said "Because of your faith, it will happen."

Matthew 15: 28

Daughter of a Gentile woman

Demon possession

Because of her persistence and great faith, Jesus granted her request.

Mark 2: 3-5

Man with four friends


Jesus SPOKE "My son your sins are forgiven" then he said "Stand up, take your mat and go on home because you are healed."

Acts 3: 2-8

Man carried into the Temple who asked for money.

Lifelong lameness

Peter said "I don't have any money for you. But I will give you what I have. In the name of Christ of Nazareth, get up and walk."

'Instruments' of Healing


The Instrument of Healing

Source of Healing Power

Ezekiel 47:12

Their leaves (trees along the bank of the river) will be for healing.

The waters from the Sanctuary

Revelation 22:2

The leaves of the tree (tree of life) are for the healing of the nations.

The River of the Water of Life

Today, God uses many of the same methods as He did in Biblical times.

- God's Word spoken
- God's Word read
- The name of Jesus
- The touch of another person (by God's power)
- Prayer

Ultimately, the source of healing is God Himself. He is not restricted though by circumstances and through whom He chooses to heal. God says he can use ANYONE to heal ANYONE.

We know there are many more examples of Jesus' healing. We can also read in the Bible, more instances where the disciples healed in Jesus name. Jesus said in Mark 16:17b "In my name they will drive out demons ... they will place their hands on sick people and they will get well." (NIV)

Marg and I are witnesses to our own healing as well as to many others through the following ministries. No one knows for sure the heart of the healed person and we can only trust that the Lord is being glorified in each case and that true healing took place. God calls us to believe in His word on healing but not to be blinded by man's "signs and wonders". To that end we can only testify to the healings that we have experienced or seen take place through these ministries.
