Foundational Evidence and Powerful Testimonies of God’s Miracle Healing Power
In his book “Authority to Heal – Restoring the Lost Inheritance of God’s Healing Power” Randy Clark demonstrates the relevance of Biblical scholarship, Church history, and the formation of theological conclusions. Clark looks into Scriptures and the history of the Church to establish a Biblical foundation for divine healing, and the continuation of Spiritual gifts and a theology of supernatural empowerment, and the impartation of healing as a birthright available to Christians today.
Examples of miraculous healing in the ministries of Moses, Elijah, Elisha and other O. T. prophets were used as prophetic indicators to point Israel to their coming Messiah. Jesus’ healing ministry in the New Testament fulfilled many of these prophecies which also confirm his identity as the Christ, the promised Messiah.
The book is filled with life lessons in walking for faith, understanding spiritual warfare, prayer, and stewardship. Amazing real-life stories are included which testify of authentic, verifiable miracles of healing and deliverance.
Clark is motivated by a heartfelt desire to clear up some of the confusion and misunderstanding, regarding the continuation of spiritual gifts and an expectation of the miraculous. Clark testifies of how his own personal healing experience moved him from academic thinking to recognizing the truth that, “God has always intended the ministry of healing to be a normative part of the life of the Church.”
Thoroughly researched and well documented “Authority to Heal” is scholarly, thought provoking and relevant for today; a valuable resource for both clergy and lay Christians. This is a book that will resonate with anyone ready to tap into God’s anointing by “Restoring the Lost Inheritance of God’s Healing Power.”
