Neither Is There Healing In Any Other Name

The entire context of Acts 3 and 4 is the healing of the lame man at the Temple Gate. This is the occasion of Peter’s declaration that his level of power or holiness had nothing to do with it. His actions, however, demonstrated that using Jesus’ name for healing had everything to do with the healing of this helpless man. One verse in these two chapters, Acts 4:12, contains a hidden key to healing by faith. This key is hidden because of the words translated by our English words salvation and saved. You see the translators gave us this: Acts 4:12 12 Neither is there SALVATION in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be SAVED.

(KJV) They should have given us this: Acts 4:12 12 Neither is there HEALING in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be HEALED. (KJV) Why is this? You see the Greek word for saved and salvation is also one of the Greek words for healed. In other words, saved and healed are translations of the same basic Greek root. Now, this Greek root is used here in this verse. In this context, however, this Greek root has nothing to do with the salvation of the soul.

This context pertains to the healing of the lame man at the Temple Gate. Read it for yourself and see. The plan, method, necessity or even a question of salvation never occurs in this context. Therefore, Acts 4:12 above would be more in line with the facts of the context of these two chapters if the verse had read thus: “Neither is there HEALING in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be HEALED.” In other words, God gave no name for our healing except the name of Jesus. When our “arm of the flesh” has failed, the name of Jesus will work because that is the name God left us for our healing from the start. Thank God for medical science. They are God’s gift to us. Nevertheless, those times they can’t come through for us, we still have the all powerful name of Jesus. Mark it well.

There is no other name for healing. This is God’s doing. There is no other name for healing. Truly, “neither is there healing in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be healed.
