The atonement of Jesus not only pertains to our sins but also to supernatural healing as well. In Matt. 8: 16, 17, Matthew cites Isaiah 53:4 and undeniably purports that Jesus’ healings were a manifestation of the atonement.
God has a multiplicity of ways to get healing to hurt and broken people, only one of which is the gift mentioned in 1 Corin. 12, v 1 – 11. Some healings, indeed, operate by Holy Spirit and His decision to apportion them. However, other healings occur via the appointment from God to certain people. Still others occur via the authority Jesus gives to every believer to heal the sick.
