Anyone can believe what he can feel, hear, or see. In the natural realm as human beings, we operate in the physical realm most of the time. And in the natural realm you do have to walk by sight. But when we talk about Bible things; when it comes to spiritual things, we don’t walk by sight. In the supernatural realm we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7).

God’s healing is spiritual healing. If medical science heals, it heals through the physical. Christian Science, for example, heals through the mind. But when God heals, He heals through the spirit. Spiritual healing – divine healing – is received from God the Father the same way the new birth, which is a rebirth of our spirits, is received. Salvation Is a Spiritual Rebirth.  When a person is born again that is the when the person receives the new birth, it is not the body that is born again, for the person would still have the same body as always. We know this because the Bible says,“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature. ..” (2 Cor. 5:17).

That verse is not talking about our body being made new. The new birth doesn’t change the physical man. The new birth changes the spirit man on the inside. After you get saved, the man on the inside is to dominate the physical man, and you will have to do something with your own body (1 Cor. 9:27).

But it is the man on the inside, the inner man, that is born again. The new birth is the rebirth of the human spirit. Jesus said, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” (John 3:6). When a person is born again, you can’t tell just by looking at him what’s happened to him on the inside. But in the process of time, it’ll show up on the outside too.

When a person is born again, you can’t tell at the moment just what has happened on the inside of him, because the new birth is a rebirth of the human spirit. But if that person walks in the light of what he has, it’ll show up on the outside. We’ve been fooled many, many times by people who have come to the altar. They pray and cry and jump and hug others and act so happy, but then you never see them anymore. All the time we really thought they had received something. But many times it was just an emotional experience, but not the new birth.

Then there are other people who come to be saved and who aren’t emotional at all. In fact, just by appearance, you might wonder if they got anything at all. They’re not even down at the altar long enough, you may think, to receive anything from the Lord. But many of these folks become very outstanding Christians during their lifetime. You see, what happens is our faith many times is based upon our physical senses. Now I certainly believe in feelings, but I put feelings last when it comes to faith and prayer.

God’s Word comes first. Faith in God’s Word comes second. And feelings come last. Too many people turn it around and put feelings first, faith in their feelings second, and the Word of God last. But those people will never be a success in anything. Divine healing comes the same way as the new birth. It comes through our spirit. It doesn’t always show up immediately on the outside. Heart faith is Bible faith. The Bible says, “. . . with the heart man believeth . . .” (Rom. 10:10). Your heart is your spirit, and healing begins in your spirit. It begins on the inside of you and works to the outside.
