Kathr and Eloy, great words. Not everyone is healed. God is still in the healing business, but not everyone is distined to be healed.
---Mark_V. on 6/18/10

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my shape to keep.
Please no wrinkles, Please no bags
Please lift my buns before they sag.

Please no age spots, Please no gray,
As for my belly, Please take it away.
Keep me healthy, Keep me young,
And most of all, please keep my tongue!
---kathr4453 on 6/18/10

I dont see the Bible as some sort of wish book we go through, find a verse and somehow wave a magic wand claiming it for yourself. Now we know SALVATION, whosoever will, is one we cannot argue. However how many a fool has drown believing he could walk on water, if he exercised the SAME FAITH Peter did. Lets take another look. Did Jesus specifically speak to PETER or everyone in general? PETER!

Did Abraham FAITH himself and Sarah into having a Child, or did God speak specifically to Abraham concerning what God would do for ABRAHAM. God said I will give you a son, and Abraham BELIEVED GOD!!! It wasnt the other way around. Look how long Abraham waited until GOD was ready.

It is through faith and patience we inherit the promises. I don't suppose either of you would like to hear the testimonies, would you?
---Linda on 6/17/10

Linda, read 2 Peter 1. Through His great and precious promises we inherit what? WE BECOME PARTAKERS OF HIS DIVINE NATURE. Through faith we are conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. Yet, in that chapter I do not see healing even listed.

Of coarse people are healed. However that is really up to God to heal according to HIS PURPOSE.

Many wonderful Christians die of this or that.

And many mislead Christians condemn those who don't find healing saying THEY LACKED FAITH, placing the blame on something lacking in them.

---kathr4453 on 6/18/10

Fay, I also love both of you, but I also think you and Linda, have gone to far to the left. I believe you are in denial. You have not proof a thing about what you say you can do. Not one thing. Its all a lot of talk with no substance. More Omnipotent then God is also nonesense. Jehovah Witnesses believe not taking the blood, just think, your claims are worse. You and Linda say, don't see doctors, pray and they will get healed. If you had a son or daughter that needed a doctor or they would die, would you let them die? Why? because if they did you could pray and bring them back to life? Just alot of nonesense. I know my God, and He does not dance to anyone's tune, He does His will in heaven and in earth. Not your will, but His.
---Mark_V. on 6/17/10

Steven, God is very merciful to the merciful, but he is also very uncaring to the uncaring and mean to the mean. God not only heals the innocent, but he also afflicts the wicked. Recall how he gave leprosy to Moses' misjudging sister, and how he later healed her? When a person is sick because they are evil and God has rightly judged them, then they will not become healed until God sees fit to heal them: especially if the evil person never repents, then why would God have any obligation to heal that wicked clay?
---Eloy on 6/18/10

That is a simple question, really..... Satan, comes only to Kill, Steal, and to destroy. Satan hates God and God hates Satan, intensely...I serve God because of my hatred for Satan, One reason I was chosen, because God knew that I could preach about Satan, hence Satan hates me, and hence, I hate the devil..
---catherine on 6/18/10

I have said it before and I will say it again: What I was taught by the Holy Spirit had nothing to do with Word of Faith preachers. I learned it all alone with no one but the Holy Ghost teaching me. Others confirmed it later. And Kathr.....I don't believe in "instant gratification". I do believe that if you sow the Word (yes, even the healing Word), you reap healing because the faith of God resides in that very Word. It is through faith and patience we inherit the promises. I don't suppose either of you would like to hear the testimonies, would you?
---Linda on 6/17/10

I think it strange that many Christians say, "Well, God doesn't want me to be healed" but will go to the doctor and get a bottle of pills. If He doesn't want you to be healed, why bother? Why resist the will of God? For the record, I take the Word like medicine, just like it says...and just like the antibiotic that destroys the bacteria that causes the illness, so the Word destroys the root of every problem be it spiritual, mental, physical, social, or financial. There will NEVER be a single soul on the face of the earth who will be able to tell me my Father is not the Healer every time. My experiences in that arena leave no place for argument.
---LindaS on 6/17/10

Yay Steveng & Linda.

Thank you MarkV for your post. I appreciate the fact that this time you spoke in love. You are wrong but at least it was lovely,lol. You see it is my opinion you are in denial. I've been there. It's just too hard to believe we have control over our illnesses. Yet, the psychological world preaches all the time that it matters what you say, to your psyche. People want to listen to them but refuse to believe the same theory from the WORD. Why is it so hard to believe God? In my opinion you've been indoctrinated by tradition. I'm sorry but it looks like we'll never agree, except by the grace of God.
---fay on 6/17/10

For those christians who tried to heal someone and it didn't work blame it on the victim (for having weak faith) or God (he'll heal the victim when it is His will/time).

These are false assumptions created by christians who don't have the faith to heal another. They put the blame on someone else - the victim or God - instead of themselves.

God will heal everyone through a person who has strong faith. Healing is proof of God's existance to the sick person. Healing is only one of the miracles that gloifies the Father. God works through all those who believe.
---Steveng on 6/17/10

Jesus healed not to bring attention to himself, but to glorify God the Father. Jesus didn't heal anyone, it was God the Father working through Jesus. The purpose of healing, therefore, was to glorify God the Father. Christians today have the ability to heal, Jesus says so himself. In fact, christians are to do greater miracles than Jesus. So why aren't miracles happening everyday? Because of lack in faith or the fear that stems from lack of confidence in their faith. Christians fear that if their healings don't work then they will be ridiculed. So they play it safe and don't try to heal anyone.
---Steveng on 6/17/10

Linda, you may want to read the Was John the Baptist sinless...regarding his doubting when in prison. Was John the Baptist DELIVERED? NO!

OUR HOPE is not in the NOW. Our HOPE is In Christ, he is our Blessed Hope, but to put it that anything you hope for is given is wrong.

aka-joseph is correct. TOOOOOOO many are living in the Kingdom NOW teachings...just as Judas was. Look where it got him....what a warning to us! May want to re-read John 6. Instant gratification like those who turned away couldn't deal with the crucified life.

---michael_e on 6/17/10

Linda, I believe you have been indoctrinated by the word of faith teachers. They teach what you teach. I am not calling you bad, but what you teach is not good or truth. It's hard to let go of something you were taught, that you faught so hard for, to just let it go. I cannot convince you, because it seems as if I am fighting you, but I am speaking for the Truth. Kathr said it right, when you can proof you can stop aging, then you will have a case. Don't you see how rediculous your statements are? no more dying, no more getting sick. I have heard what you and Fay have to say, I hear what Eloy says and Jerry and so many others, it does not mean it is true, it means that it is what you believe to be true.
---Mark_V. on 6/17/10

Linda 2:
Here is what I think, I believe that you and Fay are good people not trying to deceive anyone. There are many here who are trying to deceive others, who come from the J.W. Mormons and athiest who bring their own ideas to change the hearts of others and bring doubt to the Truth, especially on the deity of Christ. I believe that you and Fay were led wrong. It happens when the word of faith teachers speak so charasmatically. As if every word that came out of them was from God. They were all trained at the same school. They learned to deceive others and know how to do it very good. I do love you Linda and Fay, and I'm glad you have not resorted to calling names as others do. Peace from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Paul went to God three times. Did he lack faith?

No. It is quite the opposite. He held onto the faith despite his pleadings.

We need to separate the gospel of the kingdom and the gospel of grace. Our gentile churches, who need to learn te gospel of grace, are being fed gospel of the kingdom. it's like giving fish food to a dog.

Okay, we have Jesus who healed to show He was God and the Apostles who healed to show salvation. What about the BELIEVERS spoken to in Mark 16? I am not Jesus and I am not one of those apostles, but I am a believer and fully expect that to apply to me and those I minister to. God is a now God with a now salvation exacted by a now life in a risen Lord. Not saying there is nothing in the future but there are some things we can walk in now. Hope deferred makes the heart sick.
---Linda on 6/17/10

Fay, Jesus healed to show He was God. The Apostles healed for the purpose of testifying of Christ FOR SALVATION. Unfortunately many have perverted the Gospel of salvation demanding HEALING is in the atonement. Forgiveness is, however we are HEALED from our sin sick selves. There will be no perfect flesh until we are all (those in Christ REDEEMED and given new bodies.

The effect of sin not only still affect our world, but plants and animals too.

AGING is one of the curses of SIN. When you or Benny Hinn can claim to heal of the aging process, with PROOF.....then you'll have a case!

MarkV's TRUTH is not mean and nasty. However it is only to those who hate to hear the truth!
---kathr4453 on 6/17/10

Yes, the body is dead because of sin but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. However, if the Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, then He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (give life to~~~you don't need to give life to something that isn't dead) your MORTAL body (that is the present dead to sin body) by His Spirit that dwells within you. That is resurrection life...the very same life that took Jesus' dead body in the tomb and raised it to life. The very same Spirit, the very same life. I believe He dwells in me and quickens my mortal (subject to death) body. It's fine with me if you don't believe that.
---Linda on 6/17/10

I believe that Jesus fully manifested the will of the Father. He was the fullness of God in bodily form. He went about doing good and healing ALL who were sick and oppressed of the devil. Not one person who came to Him went home the way he/she came, whether it was sick, oppressed, possessed, infirm, dead, etc. They went home with what they came for. You say He did it to prove who He was. Well, maybe He did, but He said to His disciples (not apostles), "These works and greater shall you do for I go to the Father." A lot of Christians say they are doing the greater works and haven't done the ones He did. No problem believing that we should do the greater. Big problem believing we should do the same. Why is that?
---Linda on 6/16/10

Linda, I believe again you read the passages wrong in Romans 8:11. Because v. 10 tells us ,
"And if Christ is in you, the body is dead (present) because of sin, but the spirit is life because of righteousness"
The body (flesh) is dead in sin, (thats why all people die) but our spirit is alive to Christ. Because of His righteousness which was imputed to us.
V. 11, "but if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you"
When the resurrection of the bodies happens, all with the Spirit of God, will be change from corruptable to incorruptable. Thats future.
---Mark_V. on 6/17/10

MarkV, you remind me of my neighbors who twist everything I say & do. One DAY I had to leave car running to distribute spray in heat vents & a/c. It was twisted that I was so crazy & fearful that I had my headlights on the house all night. This kind of stuff continues all the time. Are you my neighbor? Well, at least if you are attacking me you're leaving someone else alone. God bless you anyway.

atheist: "I hope that because of this little agreement your are not seen as siding with a god hater."

Every once in a while a god-hater or atheist will say something truthful. Every religion - being christian, buddhist, judaism, islam, hinduism, atheism, etc - has some sort of truth in it. Just as human came from a single source so does religion. But all religions are man made unknowingly, as I wrote before, created by satan to divide christianity into their own little cults. Man believes it was their idea to take their believe into another branch.

The affinity for the body to get sick and decay is the very reason Romans 8 says, "If the Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, then He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (give life to) your MORTAL (subject to decay) body by His Spirit that dwells within you.

If the Spirit gives the mortal body life, it is a life that is bigger than sickness. I plan to finish my course. Paul gives the reason for premature death.....not discerning the body of the Lord Jesus. That's His body prepared for death (from the womb of Mary), His body in the earth, and His ethereal body (the great cloud of witnesses). As for me, I will discern His body.
---Linda on 6/16/10

Fay, The curse of eternal separation from God has been lifed on all who are in Christ born of the Spirit. They are forever alive to Christ. The physical death sentence is still on for all people until the Day of the Lord when God will do away with physical death. The body is not redeemed, only the Spirit.
The body will still decay, get sick, and die. In the resurrection of the body, we will receive incorruptable bodies glorified prepared for eternal life with Christ.
In your theology and believes, you give more power to satan then you do to God. God is just a puppet, answering your calls, but satan is ruler. Not true at all. God rules from the Throne. Maybe this doesn't sound like love, but it is Truth of Scripture.
---Mark_V. on 6/16/10

Amen steveng, it is religion though that separates, but does not create satan. satan is already a creation.

Thanks Larry.

atheist, I kind of agree with your statement except it's not faith that makes people think they can live any way they want, it's religion.

MarkV, satan is the thief who comes to kill, steal & destroy. And you are correct, the curse has been lifted for Christians, so why are so many still ill? Because satan is the thief! And we are still being deceived in so many ways. Ways that allow him access in to our lives & we are to give the devil no place.(Eph 4:27)
---fay on 6/16/10

Fay, I'm glad you agreed with my statement and sorry you cannot see my love. Explaining something to an athiest cannot be done the same as when we explain something to a believer. A believer is not opposing God. He just needs to learn more about God. Athiest do not fellowship with Christians, Christians fellowship with Christians. If he is here, he has his own purpose. He made it clear that believing in God causes many problems. He does not understand that most of those who have murdered and killed were never born of God. They were just like him, unbelievers in God. For if they had the Spirit of God they would have been different people. There is two kinds of people the Bible tells us, those children of God, and the children of the devil.

Fay, to your question, satan is not oppose to healing. I do not know where you read that from. Must be a word of faith teacher.
Second, the curse has not been lifted by the Lord. It is still in effect on all those who have not had faith in Jesus Christ for their sins. They are in rebellion against God and until they come into His rest, they will remain under the penalty of sin. The Atonement of Christ does not pay for the debt of all humanity If it did, none would be going to hell. Jesus paid for believers only. They are not under condemnation.
Third, I am not an employee of Christianet. I wish I was. They give great answers when they do answer.
---Mark_V. on 6/16/10

Fay, because healing is a witness to God's power and victory over sin.

The aforementioned is intolerable to Satan.
---larry on 6/15/10

Fay -- You make a good point. I don't see any here that seem about to "rebel" with atheist.
Of course those who read but don't contribute... we can't predict. Jesus invites, with open arms, any who would to come to Him

I look at our debates here mainly as spirited discussion within the "family". People are highly critical sometimes, some tend to take things very personally. None is perfect.

But most of us have a relationship, as individuals, with the Savior. The way we describe this relationship may differ, but it is not something any of us would want to give up. Those on this blog who have "flirted" with atheism can attest that it has absolutely nothing to offer.
---Donna66 on 6/15/10


It is not often that I agree with you, but your statement about religions I agree with completely. Your statement is sad but true.

I do understand the comfort that religion or faith give to people, and I never mean to denigrate people for the comfort they get from their beliefs.

But when their beliefs are used to divide one from another and some twisted justification for hate, I draw a line.

I hope that because of this little agreement your are not seen as siding with a god hater.

If I did believe in a god, everyone would be on the the same side, BTW.

He's stated before that his purpose is to "enlighten" us so we will give up "religion"... which he blames for most social ills...and adopt "logic", which he believes is superior to faith.---Donna


You may interpret your scripture as you wish but please don't misremember and reinterprete a few statements of mine and create an agenda.

I have never proposed that anyone give up their religion. I do believe that you are more likely to become 'enlightened' on your own using reason and seeing the world as it is than faith in whatever you decide to have faith in. And, the danger of religion is that it gives license for all manner of behavior hiding behind 'god'.

Cluny: "How does the ALL given to Jesus leave any for Satan?"

Satan will be jailed when Jesus returns - at the first resurrection. Satan will then be sentenced at the end of the thousand year. Revelation 20

Donna66" " "religion"... which he blames for most social ills..."

"Religion" IS the cause of most social ills including within the church itself. Religion is the creation of Satan. They are called denominational "churches." It divides christians into their own little cults - each having their own traditions, rituals, ways of living, and interpretations of the bible. Christians bicker among each other saying their church is the true church, their church has better entertainment, their church has a better pastor, and on and on - creating division, not union. Colossians 2:8-10

Athiest, you know why? Because God is not operating to the beat of your drums or your thinking. That is why you have so many questions and no answers. You think that things should be as you want them to be because that is what you understand. His plan complete, but to us its unfolding. In His plan all the perticulars that you see were included in His plan. It was after all His plan and not yours. Of course your plan would have been different. No true God. Do as you like. Be a god to yourself, have to answer to no one but yourself. believe in what humans say, but never believe in what God says because there is no God.

Cluny and Donna66, great answers. Cluny you hit the nail on the head when you said, "All power was given to Him (Christ)" I do not know where they get all the believes they come out with. It's like with Adam and Eve, always passing the fault to someone else. Never taking responsibility for their actions or for the results of God's curse on mankind. Man is dying physically and born spiritually dead because of that curse. Satan is not causing them to be sick, people are sick because the body is subject to get sick and die because of the sin of Adam which led to the curse of God. Satan is a fallen angel with sophisticated powers to delude, temp, and accuse people. He is finite creature without divine powers or attributes.
---Mark_V. on 6/15/10

fay -- //Didn't God say the children would pay for the sins of their fatherS? Could it not have been hereditary sin?//

No. The Jews believed that sickness was due to sin and could be passed down from one generation to another. Except for genetic disorders (which are not related to sinfulness), this is not true.

Here's what God told the Jews Jer 31:29 In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge.
Jer 31:30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.

"Generational Sin" doesn't exist. You pay only for your own sins, your children pay only for theirs.

And who do you suppose is the root cause of "organic or congenital" sickness. You underestimate the power Satan has on this earth. Before the fall there was no sickness, no tears, no agony. Since the fall, Satan being the god of this world, trys to destroy everything God has created. He uses everything at his disposal to bring disease, pestilence, famine, enemies unto men - anything to make man curse God. God's plan is to bring humans back to paradise without disease, without pestilence, no tears, no sickness no agony, no sorrow. Everything will be as it was in the beginning.

Everything, every bad thing in this world is attributed to Satan - the destroyer.

First they do not know who the God of Scripture is, that man has more power then God, for he can just say, I chose you God and God says thank you for chosing Me, now they have given all power and deity to Satan. Boy, he can do so much more then God. Satan must be on the Throne of God. Just listen to all the stuff written. He can do this and he can do that on and on.
Did you ever hear the same people speak like that about God?

So to you, demons trump science and that thing believed by all doctors,---except witchdoctors, shammans, faith healers and such---, called simply "germ theory."

Do you not believe in communicable disease?

It appears we have many opinions on this issue.

It is my opinion that any work done by demons, since demons are satan's angels, can be attributed to satan, the prince of this world.

It also stands to reason that if satan can't have your soul he will attack your health, which is why so many Christians are ill in so many ways.

As for the blind man in John 9, Jesus told them it was not the sin of the man or his parents. He did not say that it was not because of sin at all. Is it not possible that it could have been because of the sins of his ancestors? Didn't God say the children would pay for the sins of their fatherS? Could it not have been hereditary sin?

A few were apparently caused by demons, but some were simply organic or congenital.---Cluny

Why could you not believe that all illness, plague and such had such a basis? Afterall, whoever did write the Bible had no knowledge of bacteria or viruses, and how such infections were spread among people, peoples, and other animals. Nor was the idea of immunology available to explain how some groups would experience widepread death due to disease, and then almost suddenly have the disease disappear. And then reappear at another time...

Not the work of god, satan, demons, but that of other organisms...

satan is definitely opposed to healing because he hates God and anything associated with God satan wants to destroy.

Jesus called satan a thief and a liar and said he comes to steal, kill and destroy.

God says, For I, the Lord am your Healer.

So anything God does or is associated with, of course satan is strongly opposed to it.

He hates us too, God's children. Anyone who loves the Lord is in his path to "seek whom he may devour." PRAY, PRAY and PRAY SOME MORE - EVERY DAY, LOTS OF DAYS, SPEND LOTS OF TIME PRAYING.

\\All the people who were sick that Jesus healed were caused by Satan.\\

If you mean that all the illnesses Jesus healed were caused by Satan, the Gospels don't support you.

A few were apparently caused by demons, but some were simply organic or congenital.

Notice that with the blind man of John 9, Jesus made it clear that sin (and therefore Satan) had nothing to do with his blindness.

Why is satan so strongly opposed to healing?

He's NOT opposed to healings or even people going to church and reading their Bible, he can even tolerate a "little" bit of prayer as long as no actions are taken to actually "be like Christ." Satan doesn't care how much we go to church or read our Bible or even pray as long as we don't let it cause us to act like Christians. He would be perfectly content for all of us to just sit there in the pews and listen to the little sermonettes each Sunday.

If Satan can cause sickness, as causing boils on Job, then he surely can make a person appear to be healed.

All the people who were sick that Jesus healed were caused by Satan. Satn can also command his demons to leave the man. Suppose a certain man was deathly sick when a stranger came up to him and said, "My god, Zeus, can heal you." and the man got healed beleiving it was Zeus. Who would the healed man glorify, Zeus or the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob?

This question assumes that Satan is against all healing. He absolutely loves when we attribute someting to God that is not of God.

Matthew 7:22-23 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

In fact anything that is attributed to God that is not God Satan loves:
Luke 13:26-27 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are, depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
---aka.joseph on 6/10/10

Satan's purpose is to kill steal and destroy and therefore sickness is of great interest to him.

If God chooses to raise up a man who is a real genuine healer I have always been of the opinion that the man would have a great following and would be heard by many. And in these end times such a man just might appear.

BECAUSE HE IS EVIL! Satan wants you sick, dumb and blind. He wants you stupid and he wants you to stay in sin, because, sin, will make you sick. Physically and mentally....And above all, Satan wants hell with him.
---catherine on 6/10/10

Is satan opposed to healing, NO.
He can mock every thing that God can do (heal, raise from the dead, read your actions, see what you write, hear you whisper, & (even gave the Made-relig-org's churches beginning with rcc salvation plans. 2nd.Cor.11 v's 14 - 15, once saved always saved, easy believism, no works salvation, the sinners prayer etc which Are His Lies.)
He canNot read your mind & or thoughts.

He is opposed to anything that reveals the heart of God. There is a controversy between two men...the outward man and the inward man. The outward man is perishing, but the inward man is being renewed day by day. The only way the controversy is settled is by stripes. The stripes that settled that controversy are the stripes laid on the back of Jesus resulting in the flow of blood for redemption and exposing everything inward. It is because of that shedding of blood that the inward man of the spirit we are by birth can be revealed in our mortal bodies through the quickening by that same Spirit. Jesus shed His blood eight ways for eight reasons. If you pour any of that blood out and don't drink it all, you lose that benefit of redemption.

Even God has a benefit package. He daily loads us with benefits. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not ALL His benefits. He forgiveth all our iniquities, He healeth all our diseases. He redeemeth us from destruction and crowns us with lovingkindness and tender mercies. He satisfies our mouth with good things so that our youth is renewed like the eagles. As surely as we are forgiven, we are healed, redeemed from destruction, crowned with lovingkindness and tender mercies, and satisfied in our mouth with good things so that our youth is renewed. That benefit package covers all of man. Leave any part out, and another part won't work because of deception in the one.
