What is the difference between a healing and a miracle?

Yes, I believe it is 'miraculous' for someone to be healed, whether instantaneously or over a period of time.

But, what I am asking is from a scriptural POV.

Look here:

1 Cor 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. 28 And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. 29 Are all apostles?Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? 30 Do all have gifts of healings?


I thought this would be an interesting conversation.

I'm thinking it would be something outside the norm, that did NOT involve anyone's health. Like walking on water.

I tend to agree with charityagape, with a slight variance.

Since scripture doesn't really give good definitions (other than the definitions of the words themselves), it would seem that "gifts of healings" deals with those who are in need of healing-- and whatever is ill (be it physically, spiritually, or mentally) is made whole.

Miracles, on the other hand, deals with those supernatural acts, outside of healing, in which the laws of nature are superseded.

Now.. I think there are also cases I classify as a "miraculous healing", where it is beyond something ill being made whole-- such as a missing leg growing back-- things where there is actually a creative miracle occurring as part of the healing.

I need a Miracle!!

I think a miracle is an explosion of the might of God into the natural realm. It is specifically intended to awe and inspire those who see it.
A healing is the manifestation of a the compassion and love of God toward someone who is suffering or disabled.

Interesting perspective, I would be curious as to how these verses fit into that perspective??

Acts 8:
5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them. 6 And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. 7 For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed.



Acts 19:
11 Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.

Huhmph, well, scripture is scripture. I'm not sure why they're listed separately then.

Maybe? Miracles are a highly noticeable instant thing and healings are at a more "natural" (er that's not really the word I'm looking for but I hope you know what I mean) pace.

I think that is a very good explination of miracles. It's outside the normal realm of healing. I once observed a man that was in a wheelchair, his body was so twisted, with his feet backwards, and his legs shriveled drawn up into his chest, his arms were shriveled and turned backwards also into his chest, his head layed over on the side of his shoulder and he was on a breathing machine. It was just amazing to me the man was alive. Everyone was being healed in the service of various sicknesses and deseases, and people were praising God for being healed. But something started making a popping noise in the service and everyone suddenly got very quiet. This man was making cracking and popping noises from his bones, it echoed all over the building, as we watched this mans limbs one at a time take shape. It lasted for about 20 minutes. By the time it ended, this man was on his feet, with his hands lifted praising God. None of us could even come close to classifying this as just a healing. It was a creative miracle before our very eyes. We were awe struck by Gods power.
