How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
(Acts 10:38)
Because Jesus emptied Himself of His privileges and became a man, He had to be anointed to heal.

If Jesus already had the power in Him to heal people, wouldn't God have known that? Why would God have to anoint Him? Couldn't God have just said to Him, "Go ahead and use what you've got"? But, you see, Jesus didn't have the power.

Now I am not belittling Jesus or what He did for us. He is the Son of God. Divine blood runs through His veins. But He laid aside His mighty power and glory when He came to the earth to be our Savior. He emptied Himself and became like men. He became like human beings.

Jesus was just as much the Son of God when He was 21 years old as when He was 30 years old. And at age 21, He didn't heal anyone. He was just as much the Son of God when He was 25, 26, and 27 years old too.

Yet in none of those years do we read that He healed one single person or worked one single miracle. Why? Wasn't He concerned about the sick? Didn't He have just as much compassion then as He did later on when He healed the sick? Yes, of course!

You see, if Jesus already had healing power - the ability to heal people - just because He was the Son of God, He wouldn't have needed to be anointed by God at 30 years of age. He would have been healing people all along.

But because He laid aside His mighty power and glory and took upon Himself the form of a man, He needed to be anointed. Without the anointing, God's healing power, He was just as helpless as any other man.

Healing has not been done away with. The power of God is still present today to heal, deliver, and set people free. I tap into the power of God, the healing anointing, by faith, and I draw out what I need.
