TRUTH SHIFTERS-SEPARATING TRUTH FROM FANTASY
PART 3-SOMETIMES GOD HEALS AND SOMETIMES HE DOESN’T?-74a
SOMETIMES GOD HEALS AND SOMETIMES HE DOESN’T?
I prayed for one person and they were healed and I then I prayed for another and they died therefore: I must conclude that sometimes God heals and sometimes he doesn’t. Right? Wrong?
Matthew 4:23-24 (ESV)
23 And he went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people.
24 So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those afflicted with various diseases and pains, those oppressed by demons, epileptics, and paralytics, and he healed them.
Psalm 103:1-3 (ESV)
1 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,
Romans 2:11 (ESV)
11 For God shows no partiality. (KJV says he is no respecter of persons-he treats all fairly) (He doesn’t play favorites)
Now I am not saying that everyone gets healed (receives their healing that is) but it is God’s will (UNBELIEF IS USUALLY THE PROBLEM THAT IS BLOCKING OUR HEALING)***
We have enough faith because God has given each one of us THE MEASURE OF FAITH (KJV-ROMANS 12:3) and you only need a mustard seed. People just don’t know HOW TO RECEIVE IT! And they don’t know how to get the doubt out! There are very few that are teaching on this!
Mark 6:4-6 (ESV)
4 And Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown and among his relatives and in his own household.”
5 And he could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and healed them.
6 And he marveled because of their unbelief. And he went about among the villages teaching.
Jesus was not able to heal people from his home territory because they wouldn’t accept him as God; they had seen him grow up and rejected the notion that a carpenter’s son could be the Christ. What they didn’t realize was that he wasn’t the carpenter’s son; he was the SON OF GOD
SOME THINGS TO REMEMBER:
YOU MUST BELIEVE THE BIBLE PERIOD!!!
To not do so would be to say that these Promises don’t work, and they do. I know they do because I finally have them working in my life.
YOU CAN’T EVEN GO BY LIFE’S EXPERIENCES; THEY CAN LIFE TO YOU CAN YOU COME UP WITH HALF-TRUTHS
(like sometimes God heals and sometimes he doesn’t)
Healing is provided period. The supply was there before you were born. You must learn how to tap into it and single mindedly and with child-like faith without doubting just believe it. That takes practice,
· Why? Because it is all we must go by. It is our manual that explains the nature and ways of God, It is the umpire of truth
· You can’t pick and choose
· You can’t just obey what you like (you are putting your opinion over God’s Truth
· YOU MUST BELIEVE IT ALL OR NONE
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV)
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Here is a bonus: some people think that healing is not part of the atonement: doesn’t matter if it isn’t (WHICH I BELIEVE IT IS) it’s in the stripes and it’s in our benefit package) It is ours either way!!!
(I Peter 2:24/Psalm 103:1-3)
