The Author of this Book is the Holy Spirit but written by Charles and Frances Hunter
Faith healing has the elements of the power of suggestions and positive expectation. The causes of illness may be attributed either to something that the person did, or to external causes. If someone had a car accident, it may be caused because the person didn't pay attention or perhaps due to bad weather conditions or because someone hit the person. Since the Christian worldview interprets events through the battle between good and evil, between God and devil, Christians may say that "devil caused the accident" and such language may not appeal to non-Christians nor to many Christians. In Christian worldview Christ won the battle over the devil, or if you prefer Light has overcome darkness, and it is only a matter of the individual being willing to accept that the Light is even now present within him and that this Light is all-powerful and can heal any condition instantly - much like when you turn the light-switch in your room it instantly dissolves darkness.
Thus the main process used by the miracle workers of the Acts and presented in this book is not through prayer, but instantly, by turning on that light-switch and commanding the health problem or whatever the issue may be to be gone. The faith building process would happen before and after - as the Scripture does say that one should pray without ceasing. However, the act of healing in itself is a matter of momentary realization that the all-powerful Light of Christ is already within and that within this Light there is no darkness.
The authors share different methods for healing. The first one is by laying on of hands - making contact with the part of the body that is in need of healing. The more one is filled with awareness of the indwelling Light of the Spirit, the more effective he becomes as the healer. The healer here acts as a conduit for the Light of the Spirit, where through contact, through touch, he lets it transform whatever needs healing in the recipient. In later chapters, the authors share how one can use a cloth or any other material as a "point of contact", just like in Acts 19:12 "When handkerchiefs or aprons that had merely touched his skin were placed on sick people, they were healed of their diseases, and evil spirits were expelled."
Another healing method mentioned in the Scriptures and by authors was using olive oil for healing. "And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them."
This book also contains a chapter on casting out devils. While some Christians tend to attribute any problem to the devils, some have the gift of discerning the spirits or used "words of knowledge" (in essence the process consists of asking what caused the problem and being receptive to impressions and words that come to mind).
The authors suggest that you begin with one method and if it doesn't work for you, you use another. Also, if you have a serious health problem, they suggest that you visit your medical doctor and if you are on any kind of medication do not stop using it until you consult with your doctor. You should also stick to healing until you obtain the healing.
Some people may experience instant healing, some may need to use healing techniques longer. Even the same person may experience instant healing with one condition but may have greater challenge with a different health problem. Some healing may require a change in lifestyle. Some may require that we keep on purging our hearts and minds through forgiveness. Some may last longer so that we can develop new habits of living. Some may stick around to motivate us to keep praying.
The authors do not claim to have all the answers and they are merely sharing techniques they have found to work for them and suggest that you experiment with them, and keep building your faith and use it alongside the common sense. Your faith may waver over time and if you keep feeding your mind with faith-building ideas, your faith will tend to grow; if you keep stop feeding your mind with faith-building ideas your faith may begin to diminish.
Faith healing is based on the premise that your ability to heal yourself is not based on your own power and strength, but on your willingness to surrender your problem to the Higher Power and let that Power that can and knows how to heal anything, express through you. The process requires humility, humbleness of one's ego and acknowledging that Infinite Power of the indwelling Spirit. The ultimate purpose of healing being not only to get rid of the physical illness but the transformation of the individual into a willing instrument for the expression of the Light of the Holy Spirit. The more one practices communing with the Holy Spirit and aligning one's life with it, the more power flows through the individual, the more he grows in faith and the more likelihood of him experiencing instant healings.
