God's Will To Heal - page 1

Introduction: How to Find the Will of God
In Luke 5:12, it says, “And it came to pass, when he [Jesus] was in a certain city, behold a man
full of leprosy; who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt,
thou canst make me clean.”
Here is a man who Doctor Luke said was full of leprosy. Others just say he had leprosy, but
remember, Luke was a physician, so he gives you more detail. Even today, there are situations
that men say are incurable. Not only could man not help him—so it was considered a death
sentence—but it was also a sentence of being ostracized, being cast out and not able to have any
fellowship with his family or friends. It was a living death in many ways, and his case was far
advanced. He was full of the devilish leprosy, and it was awful.
However, the Word tells us that he found Jesus. Don’t you know he was already heading in the
right direction, if he found Jesus? He said something to the Master. What did he say? He said, “If
you will, you can make me clean.”
There are millions of people who believe in God and are right there, with some form of physical
problem in their body. I could name denomination after denomination, without exaggerating.
There are millions of people who believe in the Lord and have physical problems and would like
to be healed. If you heard them praying, they might sound identical to this man right here. “Oh
God, I know You can heal me...,” but then what do they add? “…
if You will
.” Or you can use the
King James Version and say, “
If it be Thy will.
” But it’s the same thing. “…
if You will
Now what did Jesus say? What did He do when this man, full of incurable leprosy, said, “Lord, I
know You can heal me if You would. If it was Your will”? It says in verse 13, “He put forth his
hand, and touched him.” Now that says volumes. The man does not look like anything you want
to touch. His skin is broken and oozing; he looks awful. He probably smells bad. Jesus reaches
out His hand in response to this man coming and saying, “Lord, I know You can make me clean
of this terrible stuff, if You would.” Jesus reaches out His hand, puts it on his oozing flesh, and
says, “I will: you be clean.”
Oh, glory to God. What did Jesus say? He said, “I will: be thou clean,” which means, “You, be
clean.” What happened? It says, “And immediately,” immediately this leprosy, this living death,
this incurable stuff, “the leprosy departed from him,” and he was healed. Glory to God.
Do you believe this really happened just like it says? This is no fairy tale. This man lived. He
met Jesus and talked to Him. He saw Him. This is a historically-accurate account. What is the
good news though? Jesus is the same yesterday and right now.
What if someone came and fell before the Master today? If they could see Him, and said, “Lord,
I know You can heal me, if You would,” what would He tell them? If He wouldn’t tell them the
same thing He told this man, then He has changed, or He’s a respecter of persons. Neither of
these can be so because the Bible says He does not change, (Malachi 3:6) and He is no respecter
of persons. (Acts 10:34) If you believe the Bible, then you have to believe that anyone who asks
this question, anywhere in the earth, will get the same answer. “Lord I know You can heal me if
