Trusting an invisible God is not easy. But God wants that more than anything else from His people.

We are suppose to ask God in Jesus name for healing in faith believing. When Jesus healed he said according to your faith. Mat 9:29, Mark 2:5 5:34 11:22 Luke 7:50 Lk 8:48
This doesn't mean we don't go to the doctor. We should also take care of ourselves. God can and does often work through people. Sometimes the doctors will admit it is a miracle when someone is healed.

Dear Dorathay, IT IS ONLY GOD WHO HEALS; it is NEVER man. Many times He uses people whom He chooses to be a point of contact but those of us in this position feel evermore humbled. His is the glory and the POWER to heal!!!

You are in our prayers, John.
---Albert on 6/11/05

I am praying for you, John. Does anyone else want to step up to the plate and pray for John?
---Peter on 6/9/05

Thanks Elsie, That was very sweet and that was a very powerful prayer, praise God!
---John on 6/9/05

God can heal our spirits. Yes, He has a direct influence over physical healing as well; He created some people to become doctors and surgeons to tend to his people here on Earth.

Dear Brother John: So sorry about your back. Yes indeed, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth we pray right now and are in agreement that your back IS healed through the blood of our precious Savior. Jesus took His stripes for our healing, crawled onto the cross, spread out His arms for us, bled, cried out and said, "It is finished." Our Lord said it then and it is DONE NOW! Praise you Almighty God, and Jesus Christ through the power of Your Holy Spirit. BE HEALED dear John!

Please pray for me! Yes, I believe God heals through doctors and without doctors, it's His call, because He has His purpose.

I hurt my back yesterday lifting a lawn tractor. Today I cannot stand up straight. The Lord healed a broken back I had 10 years ago, through a friend who cried out to God on my behalf. Now this happens. You pray and I will believe. Thanks

Despite witnessing miracles, the people in the following two verses remained unchanged.

"Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed because they did not repent." (Matt 11:20)

"Jesus ... went to his hometown ... and many who heard him were amazed. 'Where did this man get these things?' they asked. '... and he even performs miracles! Isn't this the carpenter? ... And they took offense at him." (Mark 6:1-3)
---DoryLory on 6/7/05

I believe in the power of miracles to affect mankind. I just don't believe that miracles produce real, true faith.

"... many people saw the miraculous signs he was doing and believed in his name. But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men. He did not need man's testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man." (John 2:23-25) -- Jesus understands human nature. He knows that faith produced because of His miracles was a superficial and shallow faith.
---DoryLory on 6/7/05

The Bible says that "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:17) It's the supernatural power in the Word of God itself, that increases our faith in God.

And now verse of warning.

"For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect -- if that were possible. So be on your guard ..." (Mark 13:22)
---DoryLory on 6/7/05

Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen. Heb 11:1 Faith is a gift 1 Cor 12:9. God works through his people, it takes faith to work a miracle. And without faith it is impossible to please God. If I were to lay hands on someone and God heals them through my faith, that would increase my faith.
---Rebecca_D on 6/6/05

And I beg to disagree with you, DoryLory. Miracles do increase faith especially in those who do not believe.
---Albert on 6/6/05

My son said something to me the other day about the word of God..he said in the record of Jesus's temptaion in the desert Jesus said to Satan "it is written it is written it is SPOKEN" There is much power in the written word of God and much more in the spoken word and even more when that word is spoken by you. I have healing tapes too but nothing builds up my spiritman like me repeating aloud that word God has quickened to me personally. I write those things down to have available.

Pt 1
barbara67 - Sorry, I have to disagree with your statement that miracles increase faith. Miracles increase confidence (a very necessary element) but according to Romans 10:17, faith comes (increases) through hearing the Word of God. Over and over in the NT it says that as the people heard the preaching of the Word they received faith to believe.

Pt 2
Someone who needs healing should submerge themselves in listening to the preaching of the Word ... specifically healing sermons. Every Christian ministry sells teaching tapes. Get a couple of good recorded sermons and listen to them over and over again until you have the faith to believe. Many ministries also sells tapes of people reading healing scriptures. These are powerful!
---DoryLory on 6/5/05

Pt 3
When my 23 month old son received third degree burns to his little body after falling into a campfire, we played healing tapes in his hospital room, 24 hours a day. The prognosis was very discouraging but he was healed ... without skin grafting! Praise the Lord!

BTW - I am not against doctors. I thank God for them! But God's Word takes precedence.
---DoryLory on 6/5/05

Friends: Ulrika is correct! God uses man or physicians to heal as well as each of us who must take care of our bodies which He placed us in when we were born. However, it is God who heals in each and every circumstance. All goes together! God is not out there; He and His power is here right now!
---Elsie on 6/5/05

I see a touch of fanaticism in this topic. I also see abuse of His mercy.

Please land.....

Some people believe Luke was a physician.
Some people believe Jesus was/is The Great Physician.
Miracles come by faith. Faith is increased by miracles.
Sometimes we let go of our humanity and we are healed. We just know that there are laws that were created 2 insure care for everyone. So perhaps we see a physician as legal "backup".
I wonder if any of us really knows.

Drs only take our money and cover symptoms. Jesus heals, He sometime uses ppl to lay hands on and pray for us but He is the healer. Drs wanted to give me a complete hysterectomy before I found Jesus, but I had read my Bible and told them if God wants me to die of cancer I will die of cancer if He dont He will heal me, He did and I have a wonderful son which I would not have if I had listened to drs. NO TRACE OF CANCER. PRAISE GOD!

God also said He would provide our every need so why work?

Why was Luke a Medical Doctor and Paul a Tent Maker?
---Elder on 6/4/05

Doctors treat people but God gives us healing if that is His will. Without God doctors (people) can not and without people God will not...Let Thy will be done.God bless you.

"Trust God" as He uses men/women as instruments thru which healing occurs.
---Leon on 6/4/05

It is a total lack of faith in God and simply not knowing who God is and what His Word says about healing. Most people put their trust and faith in men first and then God second when it should be the other way around. God is Jehovah Rapha, the Lord our Healer...Jesus took 39 stripes upon himself for our healing (see Isaiah 53) is already bought and paid for just like our salvation has take what belongs to you as a child of the King!!!!
