Without question, I can state that F.F. Bosworth’s Christ the Healer is one of the most impactful, faith-challenging books that I’ve read in a long time. To borrow a couple of phrases from one of my favorite childhood cartoon characters, Hanna-Barbera’s Snagglepuss, reading and meditating upon Bosworth’s message and revelation of God’s will about divine healing has caused me to say “Heaven’s to Murgatroyd” and demand sickness, disease, and pain to say “Exit, stage left!”. (My apologies to those who didn’t get to enjoy the golden age of Saturday morning cartoons.)

In the last post, I shared 12 powerful Christ the Healer quotations and the response back from you has been incredible. As promised, here are an additional 12 quotations. Get ready to say “Oh, yes!” again and again.

Note: These quotations plus the page number on which they can be found are from the Revised and Expanded Edition published in 2008. Page numbers in previous editions will read differently.

  • The Gospel does not leave a man in uncertainty praying with an “if it be Thy will”; it tells him what God’s will is. (18)
  • If you want to receive life and healing from God, take time to find the words of Scripture that promise these results. (19-20)
  • Since disease is a part of the curse, its true remedy must be the cross. (25)
  • Faith begins where the will of God is known. (49)
  • Appropriating faith is not believing that God can but that God will. (50)
  • We see, from almost every conceivable angle throughout the Scriptures, that there is no doctrine more clearly taught than that it is God’s will to heal all who have need of healing so that they may fulfill the number of their days according to His promise. (50)
  • The Bible contains God’s last will and testament, in which He bequeaths to us all the blessings of redemption. Since it is His “last will and testament,” anything later is a forgery. (52)
  • To say that this privilege of health is not for God’s people today is to change God’s “I AM” to “I Was” Jehovah-Rapha. (53)
  • “Who forgiveth all thine iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases.” “Who healeth all” is as permanent as “Who forgiveth all,” for the identical language is used with reference to both mercies. (54)
  • When we base faith on our improvement or are affected by our symptoms or by what we see or feel instead of by the Word of God alone, just to that extent ours is not real faith. To be occupied with what we see or feel is to exactly reverse the condition God lays down for us to follow. (117-118)
  • If you want to know how the Spirit acts now, just read how He acted when He had full possession of the Church. The book of Acts is a blueprint by which the Holy Spirit wishes to work throughout His dispensation. (180)
  • How absurd and ridiculous for any professed Bible teacher to pick out this, the Miracle-Workers age, as the only age when miracles are not to be done! How absurd for such a one to teach that the Holy Spirit will work miracles in every age but His own age! (189)
