Did Jesus Heal Everyone That Asked

Are there any verses in scripture that show that Jesus sometimes did NOT heal even though healing was requested? I've heard it said that EVERYONE would be healed if they had enough faith because Jesus healed everyone who asked. Is that so?

kath, if you do not want to believe that redemption is the total plan for the total man, I don't have a problem with that. You don't change my mind.

1 Thess.5:23
Now may the God of peace sanctify you wholly, and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

All three parts of man are listed there, and in the order of experience.
---Linda on 10/23/09


Like I said before, a man with experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument. Besides, what you do believe "shall also quicken our mortal body (Romans 8)" means if not this "subjected to mortality" body we live in? Quicken means to make alive and the controversy between the two men (the inward man renewed day by day and the outward man perishing) is settled by stripes.

Jesus is called "The man Christ Jesus". Man is three parts. What is true in the Spirit must work out and affect the total man. Born again (spirit), mind renewed (soul), manifestation of the truth (body.

Linda, that was a great thing you wrote. So very interesting and very true. If only somone had given a hand. Help would have come from God through one who is moved by the Spirit.

It was "compassion" that caused Jesus to heal!!!

No, circumstance does not move Christ to heal. Faith moves Christ to heal.

Linda, We put on Christ, Christ in you , the hope of Glory.

Our history in Adam 1 and all that is attached to this old creation ended at Calvary. Crucified with Christ and raised up with him a NEW CREATURE.

I am a New Creature In Christ awaiting the New Creation, Jesus Christ as the ONLY Begotten SON OF GOD, is the firstborn from the dead of the New Creation

I don't know what I will be when He returns, but I KNOW scripture says I will be like Him for we shall see HIM as He is NOW!!!

1st John!!!

This is where MY heart is...I have eternal life in me now...I will never spiritually die, for I have been given eternal life....not polonged Adam 1 physical life.

However, in the highest dimension of the Spirit, if all had gathered around the water and stepped in as ONE MAN, every part would have been healed in the whole. The lesson in this illustration isn't whose faith healed the man but just how selfish (and faithless) it is to want to be first (or separate in the one man principle), even if it means stepping over your fellow brother or sister who will never make it if you don't help. If just one, on his way to the water, had stopped to carry the one who was always last because of his infirmity, there would have been a release of the law of Christ because bearing one another's burden is to fulfill that. That law says that the last shall be first and the first last. Works every time.
---Linda on 10/22/09


That man was sick all those years, even though he came to the pool, simply because of the selfishness of the people. All those years, unable to get into the pool because of his infirmity....people rushing by him to be first, uncaring as to his burden and forgetting that it is cause of Christ to deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Him. If only one had just stopped to carry him and put him in, the supernatural would have broken out in a tremendous way because "he who is first shall be last and the last first". The water, having stirred in the beginning, would have continued to move.
---Linda on 10/22/09


Asking? Even Jesus could not heal because they believed not. Its not in the asking, its in trusting WHO will get the job done.
---duane on 10/22/09


Here's an interesting twist to healing. At least one person received healing who did not ask. A fact that he later revealed to Jesus in the temple after his healing .(Blind man)
---mima on 10/7/09

Mima, this was a neat observation....jump started me to search blind some more. Perhaps a need is known...or perhaps said in the mind...or prayed fervently in secret? In this case the man was lain daily by the pool....is the one you mean.
Psalm 146:8
The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:

Isaiah 42:19
Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD's servant?

" Keeping the law is a totally unacceptable means of salvation because the root of sinfulness is in the fallenness of man's heart, not his actions."

MarkV, I so AGREE with what you said here. Now I'm really in trouble :)
---Linda on 10/17/09


Linda I have been going over many blogs and noticed when Markv says to someone, "you are correct" Kathr then disagrees with the person he said were correct. pay attention and read her blogs. beware, because agreeing with Markv you find yourself a target.
---mikeg on 10/16/09


kath, alive and remaining unto the coming of the Lord means we will be changed, corruption will put on incorruption and mortality will put on immortality. Those who are alive and remaining do not physically die. Their salvation is completely put on. I do not desire to be unclothed but to be further clothed. If you believe we all must die physically, then be it unto you according to your faith. As for me, my mortal body is quickened (made alive) by His Spirit that dwells within me.
---Linda on 10/16/09


...The fact is that not every believer is submitted to Him and fails to release the kingdom in the earth. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in earth AS IT IS in heaven.

Linda, the truth is, IN CHRIST there is no SECOND DEATH!!

Our physical bodies will die, we do age, get wrinkles. AGING is a disease YOU CANNOT stop.

Not until Jesus Comes and we have GLORIFIED Bodies, fashioned like HIS will we live forever.
Jesus said, MY kingdom is not of this world. We do not release any Kingdom in the earth. This is Kingdom NOW Theology! WRONG!!
---kathr4453 on 10/15/09


Linda, what you said is so true. It is a new beginning. A new birth. The beginning of a new life.
When I answered you I answered according to the context for which the words were said in Scripture. I put down the context because Paul was mad at Peter. Paul said to Peter, "If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews? We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ". Keeping the law is a totally unacceptable means of salvation because the root of sinfulness is in the fallenness of man's heart, not his actions.

Yes Mark, I understand that dying with Christ is a spiritual thing. But just as Adam's death was spiritual first through condemnation and separation from God and worked into the mental realm and then out into the physical realm until his body lay down at 930 years of age, so it is with the life God has placed within us by His Spirit because of the work of Christ. It is to be worked out with fear and trembling. Having been born again in spirit by God who is Spirit, our minds are then to be renewed to the life deposited within. When the mind is renewed, there is the outworking in the body. That is salvation to the uttermost spirit, soul, and body.
---Linda on 10/14/09


Linda 2 Continue:
I am reading from Gal. 2:19-21. in v. 20, " I have been crucified with Christ" also found in Rom. 6:2-6, When a person trusts in Christ for salvation, he spiritually participates" with the Lord in His crucifixation and His victory over sin and death" "no longer I live, but Christ lives in me" here the believer's old self is dead, having been crucified with Christ. The believers new man has the previliege of the indwelling Christ empowering him and living through Him. Paul concluded in the context that Peter, by taking his stand with the Judiazers and thus against Christ, was in effect denying the need for God's grace and thereby nullifying the benefit of Christ's death.
---MarkV. on 10/14/09


Linda, thanks for explaining. I suppose you know dying in Christ is a spiritual thing. When Paul mentions, "For I through the law, died to the law that I might live to God." The reason Paul say's this in this context is because he is explaining the difference between the Judiazers false salvation through legalism v. 1:13, it is done away with by the peaching of salvation by grace alone through faith alone. Dying to the law, refers to, when a person is convicted of a capital crime and executed, the law has no further claim on him. So it is with the Christian who has died in Christ (who paid the penalty, for his sins in full) and rises to new life in Him-justice has been satified and he is forever free from any further penalty.
---MarkV. on 10/14/09


MarkV, the point is that most believe in the cross to the point that they receive forgiveness of sins only. However, they don't believe that the cross was our total deliverance from sin, sickness, sorrow, and every other aspect of the curse the law worked. How many dead men do you know who have a problem with sin? How many of them are responding to temptation? None. They are dead. My Bible tells me I was crucified with Christ and I died with Him. And to make sure I didn't have any more problems with the old man, I was buried with Him too. When He was quickened, raised, and seated, God quickened, raised, and seated me with Him. That has already been done and is on account for whosoever will.

Linda, I don't know if you notice but you contradicted yourself maybe without realizing it. You give a lot of passages and then say there is a difference, I suppose you mean that a person can love Christ and be an enemy of the Cross.
Then you give a fantastic passage in Romans 8:11, that explains how the Spirit quickens with all the power that raised Jesus from the dead and delivered Him from every realm of the curse He became" If that Spirit that dwells in the new believers has done that, how can the new believer be an enemy of the Cross? If the Spirit brings life and endwells the believer wouldn't that new believer believe in the Cross? You are just not making sense Linda.
---MarkV. on 10/13/09


Peter knew who Jesus was and even loved Him enough to leave all to follow Him. When Jesus asked, "Who do you (Peter) say that I am?", Peter had the right answer and was commended. In the very next breath, Jesus begins to talk about entering into His sufferings and rising again the third day and Peter rebuked Him. Jesus called him "Satan" at that point and told him that he savored not the things of God. In Phillipians 3:18, Paul speaks of those who are enemies of the cross of Christ. They are those who refuse the truth of the redemptive work of Christ that affects all five realms of man: spiritually, mentally, physically, socially, and financially.
---Linda on 10/12/09


If those who were spoken of by Paul were enemies of Christ Himself, he would have said that. Instead, he called them enemies of the cross of Christ. There is a difference. There are people who say they love Jesus but refuse the things He died to give us simply because He loves us and did what it took to purchase those things. Psalm 103, Isaiah 53, 1 Peter 2:24, Proverbs 4:22, et al. Romans 8:11 says that if the Spirit of Him that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal body by His Spirit that dwells within you. When that Spirit quickens, it quickens with all the power that raised Jesus from the dead and delivered Him from every realm of the curse He became.

MarkV: "God does not answer selfish prayers."

Steven G, that was the easy way out from answering my questions. Why didn't you answer them? If it is as you say, why don't you ask God for the removel of all sin, you say you can do it. You ask me to take a sabbatical and read the Bible again, will I be able see what you see, and be able to ask God and He will remove sin because I ask?
Steven, you have to be sensible. People will ask God for many things, some very important things but in our hearts we know that God will only do what is righteous for Him to do. Otherwise you get nothing. People ask many times because they are selfish, they want something for themselves, a new wife, a house, great children, so they don't have to struggle with them. God does not answer selfish prayers.
---MarkV. on 10/12/09


Linda, thank's for responding. I believe what you said until you got to the last sentence. You said,
"You can love Jesus and still be an enemy of the cross."
I believe that to be false. If you love Christ, you have to believe in the Cross. There is no other way. The lost don't have a love for Christ. They know about Him, heard all there is to know about Him, but do not put their faith and trust in Christ or His works on the Cross and His resurrection. And as you said, it has to be by genuine saving faith. Something we didn't see to believe but something we hold so dear by faith. You cannot love Christ and be an enemy of the Cross. Just no way. Only believers love Christ, and only believers believe in the Cross.
---MarkV. on 10/12/09


MarkV: "Steven G, if, as you suggest that ask anything and you will get it, then why don't you ask for all denominations to disappear?..."

Your knowledge of the bible is a testimony to your immaturity as shown by asking such questions. Even if a person doesn't have a close personal relationship with God, the bible has already answered all your questions. I strongly suggest taking a six month sabbaical and read the bible from beginning to end. I'm sure you'll be able to meet God on the way.
---Steveng on 10/11/09


Mark, the operative word in all your point is the word "see" or what you behold with your natural eyes. Those are not the only eyes we have. That is my point. Whether you believe it or not, the work is still finished and the kingdom available to be released in and through a people who believe. One who believes as you do accepts everything that happens as somehow falling within the will of God because God could do something if He wanted to. In His sovereignty, He gave authority to man, the ability to make the choice of life, and the Word to bring faith. The enemy and all his works are defeated. One must believe it (faith) before it is seen with the natural eyes.

As you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him. Did you receive Him because you saw Him in the flesh? No. You received Him by faith. You walk in the redemptive work the very same way. You cannot separate Christ from the work He did. You can love Jesus and still be an enemy of the cross.

Linda, after all that preaching what was your point? I believe you could have said, "this is my point" and then given it. I still see people dying of hunger. I still see dictators murdering. And I see a lot of Christians dying at the hands of the wicked. They were in Christ but in this world they suffered as was told by God they would. Nothing really has stop. And it won't until God does away with sin.
You can alligorize salvation and who we are in Christ but it doesn't change the fact that we are all going to die. A physical death for all descendants of Adam with the exception of two who never died. We are not of this world but still live in this world of sin.

Markv, all those things you are telling Steven to ask for are things that are already finished in Christ. It is a finished work. The outworking of it is yet to be manifested.
In Christ, there is no dictator.
In Christ, there is no death.
In Christ, there is no undefeated adversary.
In Christ, there is no division, only the whole body in heaven in earth, called and named by God

The truth of it all is summed up in Christ who was and who is and who is to come. The fact is that not every believer is submitted to Him and fails to release the kingdom in the earth. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in earth AS IT IS in heaven.

His will is as clear as any will that would be read in the presence of the family of the beneficiary. Jesus died as the testator but rose again to make sure we got what He paid for. Why do you think His will is so unclear that He would heal this child of His and not that one? Is He a respecter of His own? No, indeed He is not. The truth is that He has already completed salvation, healing, reconciliation, deliverance, peace, wholeness, and every other redemptive thing found in salvation to the uttermost. The failure is that we fail to see what has already been done and we wait for God to do something else instead of believing and receiving what is already provided.

If I asked you to pull weeds from my garden and you did it, you would think me strange if I came to you an hour later and asked you to pull the weeds. If I asked you several more times, I would be insulting your integrity. God's perfect will is expressed in the person of Christ, who redeemed us from the curse of the law and now sits at the right hand of the Father as testimony to His own work. Read Deut. 28 and see what the curse included. That is what we are redeemed from.
---Linda on 10/10/09


It doesn't require big faith for anything. Even faith as a grain of mustard seed will move a mountain. God gave man dominion. Man gave that dominion to the adversary. Jesus took that dominion back by becoming a man, dying man's death, and rising again to sit at the right hand of the Father. Now the dominion given originally to man is held by Christ who puts Himself in man, thereby placing that position of dominion in the earth back where God had it to begin with. That dominion is exercised by faith, not by sight. Faith is the evidence, not our five senses. You choose at any point in time to walk by faith or by what you feel.

Steven G, if, as you suggest that ask anything and you will get it, then why don't you ask for all denominations to disappear? You say they are all of Satan and doing bad things. If you are a kind person, why don't you ask for Satan to disappear? Why don't you ask for people to not die anymore? Why don't you ask for all dictators to disappear? Why don't you ask God to stop hunger in the world?
You tell us, through the prophets you mentioned to us how much faith is needed? How do you measure whether its 80 or 90 or what is even 100%? You cannot measure faith. With your great knowledge and great faith you have why don't you explain to us people who don't know a thing with little faith?
---MarkV. on 10/10/09


Linda, I don't believe God is saying "times up" every mil-second that someone dies. Their time is just up. Some survive great disasters because it is not their time to die. In every case each one of us has a purpose every second we are here. We touch so many people in the chain of events in life. Take Bill Vukovich, an Indianapolis driver, he was killed in a crash, which was later determined it was the failure of a cotter pin that cost ten cents. Someone had to have made that cotter pin, and put it in the car, and it had to fail at the exact time it did. All a course of events.
With God, everything is as sure as done. Nothing can happen that He did not allow or permit to happen. And as sure as He already saw it, it will happen.

As we are living at the end of time, christian's faith has become weak. Scripture says to ask for ANYTHING of the Father in Jesus' name and you will recieve it. Christians today make all kinds of excuses why a prayer wasn't answered like blaming God ("It wasn't in God's will). Weak christians are one reason why they can't perform miracles greater than Jesus. Many people claim to be healed from disease within the body (a disease that can't been seen), but have you ever seen/heard of an amputee receiving his leg or arm through prayer? I realize that many of you will say in your heart, "Yes, through surgery." But I mean through prayer only without man's help as in surgically replacing the leg or arm.

Mark, is that why Paul said, "I am in a strait between two, to go on to be with the Lord which is far better or to stay on here in the flesh which is more needful for you." Then he goes on to say that he will stay for them. Paul didn't die of anything health related. He finished his course. We do have something to do with it. Paul even went so far as to say that some are sick, weak, and prematurely sleeping because they haven't properly discerned to body of the Lord Jesus. That tells me that God doesn't just say, "Time's up. Gotta go."
---Linda on 10/9/09


Linda, He is an awesome Father but He doesn't heal all the time. God is not obligated to heal everyone. We are told that we should ask for His will, not our will. The reason for this is that He knows ahead of time, when and where and how we are going to die. That time will not change. It is preordained already and God is not a God of time as we are. Our death and suffering is not first priority for Him, our salvation is. And He makes sure those who are going to be save will be save before dying. The number of them is known already by God. For He knows all things, as it is written, He is Omniscience.

When Jesus was on earth, His Healing and Miracles were for the purpose of testifying to His Deity..When the Apostles healed, it too was to testify to Jesus Christ leading TO SALVATION or others to salvation, not to healing just for the sake of healing.

Jake, My understanding of FAITH comes to mind again when I read about Abraham and Sarah. Their FAITH did not produce a Child. Actually their FAITH was believing something God had told them...and when they believed GOD said He would give them a child....they believed God..and that is what God calls FAITH, and by that Faith in His promise they were imputed Righteous...not imputed with a Child through their faith.

Our Faith is ALWAYS is something God first spoke...and we believe...

2 Timothy 3:15
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Second, since your mom did not die as everyone though, how did she get curied? again was it by your faith, her faith, or both?
And if it was by your, or yours and hers or yours and your sons, why do you think God brought hearing to him and complete recovery to your mom?

When was the last time you saw a person who was dead, get up and walk because he or his spouse had enough faith to bring him alive? When was the last time you saw a mountain moved from one place to another? When was the last time a limb grew back? And who's faith does it take for that person to heal? Does the sick person have to have it? Or does the spouse? Or how about the hundreds of christians who are praying? When nothing happens, the answer is, they had no faith, the people praying had no faith or not enough. Is there a barometer? So God was angry that the faith He Himself gave them was not good enough so He lets them die. How strong must that faith be? 50% how about 99%? This ideas come from the "Word Faith" movement.

The "problem" with questions about healing is that they imply that we want to put qualifications on our belief in God. We know that God/Jesus CAN heal any and everybody, but, sometimes chooses not to, can our "faith" withstand the doubts that will arise in such a time as that? We need to realize that God/Jesus is completely Sovereign and doesn't answer to any of us for His actions. As many stated in the Scriptures, no matter the outcome I will serve and honor God.

Jesus does not want us to suffer, sickness and disease are a result of sin. without sin, there is no sickness. Since sin has no grasp on Jesus Christ, then neither does sickness.
If you ask Jesus Christ to heal you, I believe you will be healed, but you must believe that He can and will heal you. you are most likely taking medication, which would mean that you are trusting some man made potion to work, or to be from God. God doesnt mix chemicals to trick your body, that is deciet, and from the devil. Jesus heals forever.

I was wondering. I have been suffering from illness for 15 years and prayed and prayed and thought I had faith but haven't been healed. Does that mean I am unbeliever?

Paul was a great man of faith. Yet each time he asked to have his infirmity taken away to be healed, the answer was My grace is sufficient" He was one of God's chosen and was not healed. God has his reasons.... faith plays a huge part in our interaction and our relationship with Jesus. Including healings... but lack of faith is not always a criteria for God choosing to not heal and to use our infirmities for his glory. Look at Joni Eareckson Tada. Great woman of faith!

What about 2Corinthians 12:7-10. Paul specifically asked 3 times to be relieved of his infirmity. The Lords response was "My grace is sufficient." Sometimes it takes illness of other unpleasent events to open our spirtual hearts to accept and believe. It can also take the same to keep us humble. God knows what is the best for His children, even if they don't. Was Paul's faith insuffiecient?

1st question. No. 2nd question. Yes, for those who believe. No, for those who do not.

For to receive we must ask in faith, with unwavering confidence. Those who vacillate, wavering from one thought, opinion, word or action to another will not receive simply because doubt negates faith. They are opposite sides of the same coin, one can not be seen, without some superficial aid, if the other is showing. And even with that aid, one can only see clearly what one is focused on.

I agree with DoryLory's post. Faith is the material of that which is earnestly expected & that materialization will be evidence & proof of the unseen thoughts, words & motives that produced the actions necessary to bring about the manifestation. The Father Has empowered us all with 'The' measure of faith. Faith grows as it is exercised or put into action thru thoughts, words & actions that agrees with & correspond to the professed confidence one has in the Father.

I like the simple way that Sheila answered this question on healing. Is it the faith of the person asking, or did Jesus heal everyone who asked? "Jesus did go to a town and commented on what little faith they had.Also said that was cuz of their lack of faith,few miracles happened there.I'd think that would be cuz only few approached Him to do a miracle,but certainly He never failed to heal someone He was healing."Sheila on 5/18/05

The thing about faith is that it isn't something that can be worked up. You can't "make yourself" have more faith. Faith is something that grows (increases) through spending time with God and His Word (Romans 10:17).

The Bible says that if all the miracles Jesus did were documented, there wouldn't be enough books to hold them. There were a certain number of incidents where un-believers were not healed!

Jesus can and the Bible is correct to say so. A charismatic preacher, a human filled with the power of Holy Spirit will not. I think if that were possible, an antichrist would be created. God in His mercy knows the inner weakness of human being. Even Satan could not achieve that feat. That's why Only Jesus. So in this regard we have to allow the Spirit of the Lord to act as He will and does as He desires. Keep firm in the faith to ensure our rapture to be with Him if we happen to be alive when He comes.

Jesus healed everyone who came to him seeking healing. Some regions Jesus did not do many miracles for their lack of faith, because they did not seek out his healing they did not receive it. Those who had faith, got healed; and those who had not faith, stayed sick.

In the bible there is no verses where Jesus did not do what was requested though in his hometown he could not do many things, but there is a verse that says that God refuses to heal everybody. Acts 28:27 'For this peoples heart has become calloused;. . . Otherwise they might see with their eyes. . . and turn, and I would heal them.'

It seems that unbelief was the hindrance to any mighty work Jesus could have and was willing to do.
---linda9974 on 5/14/05


Jesus healed everyone that asked. Not only that, but every time Jesus came upon a dead person, that person was brought back to life!

In Mark 6:1-6, Jesus wanted to heal the people but was able to perform only a few miracles. Unbelief kept the people from getting their miracles and the Bible says that Jesus was astounded by it.
