It is important that those who have been healed receive follow-up ministry. Jesus gave follow-up instructions to those who experienced healing and deliverance.
He spoke to the man who had been healed of leprosy:
“And He charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.” (Luke 5:14)
He told a sinful woman who had been healed:
“Return to thine own house and shew how great things God hath done unto thee…” (Luke 8:39)
He told the man at the pool of Bethesda:
“…Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.” (John 5:14)
To the woman caught in adultery He said:
“…Neither do I condemn thee; go, and sin no more.” (John 8:11)
If you are ministering individually to a person, you may want to give follow-up instructions yourself. If you are ministering in a mass crusade, provide counseling after the service or the following morning. If you are ministering in a local church, ask the pastor to provide follow-up care for those who are healed.
Follow-up instruction should deal with:
• What to do to remain healed.
• What to do if they were not healed.
