Nothing grieves me more than churches that teach that God will flippantly decide whether or not He wants to heal you. God is going to start dealing with pastors who are not teaching correctly and not telling the people the TRUTH so that they can get well. A very THOROUGH reading of His Word will tell us the TRUTH about God's desire to heal us from everything that is coming aganst us. We play a part in our healing. It's so easy to put the blame on God when we don't see results because it takes the pressure off of us.
So... let's get this straight...
1. God is NOT sitting on the throne zapping people with sickness.
2. God is NOT sitting on the throne picking out certain people to heal and others to deny.
Jesus went to the whipping post and died on that cross 2000 years ago and salvation and healing were paid for! It's done. WE ARE ALREADY HEALED!! Now it's our turn to pray and speak the Word and do all God tells us to do in order to appropriate our healing!
Pastors... stop making up doctrines according to the experience of people and start declaring what the WORD says. READ THE WORD! Get out of your own way and READ THE WORD!
And here goes...
Psalm 103:2-3 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits; Who forgives all your iniquities; who heals all your diseases.
Jeremiah 30:17 "For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,' says the LORD...
Proverbs 3:7-8 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones.
Isaiah 53:4-5 Surely He has borne our sicknesses and carried our pains; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon him; and by His stripes we are healed.
3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
Mark 16:15-18 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Exodus 23:25 "So you shall serve the LORD your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you."
Psalm 41:1-3 Blessed is he who considers the poor; the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive, and he will be blessed on the earth; You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies. The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed.
Matthew 4:23-24 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. Then his fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them.
Matthew 10:7-8 "And as you go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.' Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give."
Mark 1:40-41 Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, "If you are willing, You can make me clean." Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, "I am willing; be cleansed."
Acts 10:38 "God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him."
Hebrews 12:12-13 Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.
Proverbs 4:20-23 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.
And there are MANY more scriptures to find and meditate on. Be diligent in finding out what God REALLY says....
GOD LOVES YOU AND WANTS YOU WELL! If you are stitting under leadership that tells you maybe He will and maybe He won't , it's time to find a new place to learn the Bible and worship. Your LIFE may depend on it!
