The Bible does not teach divine healing for the followers of Jesus in the present life, nor at this time for anyone.

Christians are to lay down our lives in sacrifice. We obey and glorify God in all of our hard experiences; we are not to ask for the healing of our bodies. Romans 12:1, “…present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.”

There is no suggestion anywhere that Jesus healed his own disciples. When Jesus sent out His disciples to heal others, He never told them to heal themselves

Timothy, Paul’s beloved friend, had stomach problems, Paul advised, “Don’t continue drinking only water, but use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.” 1 Timothy 5:23. Paul did not instruct him to pray for divine healing nor for health. He never sent Timothy “aprons or napkins.” (Acts 19:12.) Paul did heal others who were not followers as a picture of the great work to be accomplished in his future Kingdom.

All of our trials help us to develop our characters. James 1:2-4 (NIV), “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds (including physical trials) because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

When sick, use natural and herbal medicines, rest, eat healthy food. Refresh your heart and mind by thinking about beautiful scriptures. We are not to question why God is permitting us to suffer, but we are to deepen our reliance on God while ill. In the story of Job, his three friends thought that Job had sinned. They said his afflictions were a punishment.  But God declared they were wrong. (See Job 42:7-8.) 

Job did question why God permitted him to suffer from boils all over his body. This was Job’s error. No one has the right to question the Almighty God. God asked Job, “Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorant words?” Job 38:2-4.

The saints, at their death, will be resurrected to perfection as spirit beings. The Kingdom work of healing everyone will be in the Millennial age. Then Christ and his Church will restore perfect life to whomsoever will obey righteousness. That will be the real time of divine healing, when God's power will be exercised for the restoration of all the obedient of mankind to health and everlasting life. (Acts 3:19-21)
