Act 1:8-The Power of the Holy Spirit is real! (3)

Healing the Sick

While on earth, Jesus Christ healed the sick with the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 10:38) and He wants us to do same in this age as well (Mark 16:15-18). As a Medical Doctor and a Christian, I can boldly attest to the fact yes; we care but it is God that heals and He does so through the Holy Spirit. In fact, it is only the Holy Spirit that makes improbable healing probable. I will now narrate a testimony to back this notion up.

Around 1.30 am one day, a three and a half year old boy was rushed to us in Benin City, Nigeria with Severe Malaria Fever and Severe Anaemia (his blood level was dangerously low and incompatible with life). He was in the throes of death when he came in and as part of our treatment plan, he was to have urgent blood transfusion otherwise, by our estimation, he would die in a jiffy. Sadly, we had no blood in our hospital to transfuse him with and his parents were too poor to go elsewhere for treatment. His condition soon got rapidly worse and the only thing we could do, was to watch and pray and rely on the Holy Spirit to keep him alive as we had by then, done all we possibly could. Miraculously, he stabilized after a while even though, his condition was still very critical. And at 8 am (i.e. over 6 hours of being with us), when the morning shift commenced, some of us pooled resources together and got him properly treated and he recovered fully in a short time. Please remember that we earlier estimated that he would die in a bit without blood transfusion but, the power of the Holy Spirit kept him alive. Approximately two years later, I ran into his mum and she practically dragged me to where he was; smartly dressed in his spotless school uniform, ready to go to school. The power of the Holy Spirit sure healed him. This power is still available for use to heal the sick and you can have it if you wish in Jesus name. Amen.
