Default The Believers' Birthright and the Christian Traders

The Believers Birthright and the Christian Trader.

Jesus is willing and able to forgive a believer's sins when they trust Him alone for that forgiveness which is promised in salvation. A Christian would NEVER tell an unsaved person that Jesus might not be willing to forgive them.

The question becomes why do Christians believe and tell others that it might not be God's will to heal in the light of clear scripture to the contrary?
1. Jesus healed ALL that came to Him.
2. The NT Greek word for salvation includes healing and deliverance from harm and danger in the meaning of the word. Below is an OT covenant promise. Should not believers under the better covenant based on better promises at least have as much as the OT?
3. Psalm 103:1-4
New King James Version (NKJV)
103 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 iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
4. James 5:14-15
New King James Version (NKJV)
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

5. Mark 16:17-18
New King James Version (NKJV)
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they[a] 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.

In light of the statement, "these signs will follow those who believe", is it fair to say that either Christians really do not believe or they have traded the blessings for something else just as Esau did? Is God's opinion of doing this the same as His opinion of Esau when he traded his birth right for one morsel of food ? Is God no longer Yaweh Rapha, I Am The God That Heals you? Who has changed, God or Christians?
Please keep in mind that Satan is described as a merchant and trader in Ezekiel 28:14-19. He has been 'trading' with God's people since the Garden of Eden, and with no small success!
