Keep in mind that with limited space the information I'm posting is very small. There is so much more! Let's start with who does The Father want healed? I struggled with this myself, while I was paralyzed. Full of faith when diagnosed with Lou Gherig's disease, I told the Dr and nurses that The Lord would heal me (LOL there is power in our words!!!). Yet, when a period of time elasped, the faith was still there but was joined by unbelief (because I would recieve prayer and no progress was apparent). I got to the point where I thought that this was my thorn in my side, and God had decided not to heal me. I would no longer go before the elders and ask for prayer. I accepted my sentence of death and even longed for it. STOP!!!!!! So where was my thinking wrong? 1) Firstly, I was believing for a healing, but speaking death and sickness (being double-minded a double minded man shall recieve nothing). Ever hear the phrase "I'm catching a cold" that is being double-minded. I remember a man would come up to me at church and say you're looking stronger, Tony. My thought would be no I'm not, yesterday I could move two fingers on each hand, today I can't (double-minded).
2) I thought that The Father had "allowed", this to happen. After all, God is sovereign, He controls everything. Step out into traffic, is the result God's Will or your bad decision? All good gifts are from the Father all evil is from the devil, period! If getting a disease is God's Will, why go to a doctor? That would be going against HIS Will, and then that is sin. God is using the disease to teach me a lesson/ for HIS Glory. Does a earthly father, shove his son into traffic to teach him to look both ways before crossing the street?
3) Now isn't the time God has determined for my healing/ when God says it's your time to go, it's your time to go! Short answer: With God their is no variation nor shadow of turning. Did the Father send a disease to kill Moses? No. Who is out to seek, kill and destroy......the devil not God.
Tommorrow I will deal more with this topic. Suffice it to say that Jesus is perfect theolgy not our "wisdom of men". Jesus is our example of The Father's Will. He stated that I do only what I see My Father doing (paraphrasing). Also, if you have seen me, you've seen My Father. So Jesus only did what the Father's will is. Then show me where Jesus did not heal someone (he did refuse to heal a woman's daughter, then healed her anyway.) Where did Jesus say today isn't your time to be healed......come back next week. Where did Jesus send a storm? Or a person wasn't a good enough person to heal? Did Jesus make anyone sick or sent them a disease? Jesus is the same yesterday, today and always. His time for healing is always now!
