Although I write this thesis by my own hand it is in reality indirectly a work. of a great family of God in Christ It cannot be finished without them all. This is a practical theological study of divine healing from a Continuationist. Reformed perspective It attempts to provide existential practical theological help to. attain a fruitful ministry of divine healing Within my present Continuationist. Reformed conviction I need more powerful frequent predictable manifestations of. divine healing to support my evangelistic ministry that is sometimes blessed with. unplanned divine healing manifestations Therefore I try to identify and formulate a. combined practical theological theory on divine healing from the ideas and. experiences of two Classical Pentecostals who experienced unusual remarkable. predictable manifestations of divine healing namely Smith Wigglesworth and John G. Lake This will be done through literary research based on their transcribed sermons. and writings A new Continuationist Reformed theory is developed by reworking the. findings through evaluations Theological reflections contribute to the evaluations. My contention is to provide a practical theological theory of divine healing from a. Continuationist Reformed perspective, To accomplish this Chapter I presents fundamental elements of the research. definition of terms research orientation and short biographies of Wigglesworth and. Lake Chapter II deals with their understanding of the nature of divine healing a. necessary knowledge for their fruitful ministries This is followed by evaluations In. Chapter III I describe their basic attitudes in dealing with sickness and disease and. then evaluate them Chapter IV and V are focused on miraculous faith as the most. significant determinant for their fruitful ministries of divine healing Followed by. evaluations the former deals with necessary convictions about miraculous faith for. divine healing and the latter with the practical theological principles of this faith for a. fruitful divine healing ministry Chapter VI investigates their spiritual equipping for a. fruitful divine healing ministry i e the baptism with the Spirit This is also followed. by an evaluation Chapter VII deals with God s direct supernatural guidance needed. for their fruitful ministry of divine healing This is also evaluated As the general. conclusion of the study Chapter VIII summarizes all previous investigations into an. integral concise Continuationist Reformed theory of divine healing.
