Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness
San Luis Obispo, California (PRWEB) November 04, 2011
Reap the Harvest, a California foundation, has announced that in its newly published book Be Healed By The God Who Cares, author Sherif Michael maintains, “Jesus Christ, the Incarnation of the Living God, can heal us of disease.” Sherif Michael says, “In my college days at UCLA I used to believe God was an impersonal Force which one tapped into through meditation and yoga, just like an extension cord taps into the energy grid. I thought the Creator and the Creation were one and the same, that God was a passive force which permeates the universe, and that life is a machine which builds itself.
“But now I believe in a First Cause. How can there be a computer program without a programmer, a painting without a painter, or a house without a designer? The human body is much more complex than any computer program, painting or house. It has been estimated that if the DNA in an adult human were placed end to end, it would reach the sun and back four hundred times. The sun is 93 million miles from the earth! DNA is powerful chemically coded information. Information does not magically appear; it has a Source, namely God.
“The next question we should ask is who is God. Christ fulfilled over three hundred Old Testament prophecies made hundreds of years before his time. This gives us more than a clue that the Source of the information has, for some reason, zeroed in on Christ. When we examine the historically documented miracles Christ did, miracles which have never been duplicated (multiplying bread, stilling storms, walking on water, raising the dead, healing the sick), we see evidence that Christ’s claims that he is God Incarnate are not whimsical myth. Such miracles attest to the power of God.”
Michael maintains that a belief in God and Christ is logical and a source of great hope.
He summarizes his short book Be Healed By The God Who Cares as follows:
“If you face serious physical illness and your body is falling apart, you need to turn to the Source of Life and Healing. God can heal, heals daily, and may heal you this moment. God should not be limited nor minimized by our inability to conceive who He is. Quoting Jonathan Edwards, the Triune God upholds the universe instant by instant. Without God the universe would cease to exist, as a tent collapses without poles. God defines physical reality. Physical healing is for the present, but spiritual healing is the greater gift, as it is FOREVER.
“Be Healed By The God Who Cares covers both spiritual and physical healing. By believing in God’s Son, we gain eternal life. Faith is a gift from God, but Jesus Christ used his fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies and his miracles to evidence his claims that He and the Father are One, that before Abraham was ‘˜I AM,’ that ‘˜He who has seen me has seen the Father.’ He compared Himself as Jacob's ladder, the stairway from Heaven to earth, on which angels tread (John 1:51). It is Christ who actualized the first "Stairway to Heaven," long before Led Zeppelin! The God of eternity stepped into time and revealed Himself to us. He demonstrated his love by healing us.
“To develop faith, this booklet examines proofs: fulfilled prophecies, Christ’s resurrection, the moral argument for the existence of God, and present day physical healings in Fiji. For those who are sick and can’t handle extensive reading, Be Healed By The God Who Cares is a short and easy read. It can also be bought online for $3.95. It is a quick read for those who want evidence for the existence of God and need healing.”
” A very readable, cool and clear introduction on the most vital subject. In this fine piece of work Sherif investigates the meaning and the reason for believing the Christian faith” ““ Dr. Steve Kumar, Author of Christianity for The Skeptics, was president of the New Zealand Evangelical Apologetics Society.
"If you are seeking a book that will give ample amounts of inspiration and hope combined with a dash of apologetics, ‘Be Healed by the God Who Cares’ does just that, and more. Biblical wisdom is presented alongside classic philosophers and modern thinkers in a clear readable guide to finding spiritual solace and miraculous intervention." – James Hirsen, J.D., New York Times Best Selling Author.
