Divine healing, based on His promise to heal, is an act of mercy from God. Though God Himself chooses the time of healing, His intervention in a person's behalf is dependent on certain conditions being met: Trust in His promise and power to do what He has promised when He chooses to do it. Faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, represented in the Passover observance by the broken bread, a symbol of His broken body, and the wine, a symbol of His shed blood. Repentance, where possible, from sins that may be involved in causing the health problem. Understanding that, because God loves us and knows all things, the healing will be granted in this life only if it is in the best interest of God's purpose. The great heroes of faith have died, but they will be healed in the resurrection and given spirit, immortal bodies that can never die.
