Anointed By God To Heal

There are many teachers/preachers who claim to be anointed by God with the power and authority to heal. Yet when you watch them, you see many of them wear GLASSES because they can't heal their eyes. Would you consider these people to be FALSE TEACHERS?

matthew 28 says that indeed the believers do have that authority that is all believers. on the other hand i do not disagree that some ministers of God (For God gave some to be apostles, prophets evangelists teachers and preachers for the building of the body for the edification of the saints unto the full stature....) these evangelists pastors-teachers prophets and apostles might have a special anointing according the choossing of the SPIRIT to teach the church how to walk in this kind of faith. that some of them do not arrive to overcome their illness. also Paul had a thorn in the flesh that he couldn't overcome, none of us would concider to rip Pauls letters out of the Bible

This a very sensative topic for most Christains because many confuse the matter of God healing with the Gift of healing. The gift of healing stopped with the competion of the scriptures (1 cor.3:9). This does not mean God does not heal, and we should still ask the Lord to heal those who are in need of healing.
All believers have the authority to pray and rebuke sickness, and the result is according to God's will.

//What I see in these ministers is not what I see in Biblical healing.
---Harold on 11/1/10//

How true, so if they don't line up Biblically, they are false.
---michael_e on 11/15/10


Harold, you are correct. This new ministry is not old at all. Frederick Dale Bruner was one of the first to bring forward the American holiness movement. John Wesley taught a definite second work of grace distinct from the remission of sins. American revivalism of the nineteenth century was exemplified by the doctrines of Charles G. Finney and influence the shaping of the Methodist and Pentacostal movements.
And now has really spread with the Word of Faith teachers who come on TV claiming to bring people from the dead. All who came under the Holiness ministry became familiar with the "spiritual baptism."
Does God heal? Of course He heals. He has mercy on whom He has mercy, and He has compassion on whom He has compassion.
---Mark_v. on 11/2/10




There is divine healing from God. I have seen it and can not deny it.
I do have questions about today's healing ministries. Why does the one being healed fall down instead of jumping and walking as in the Bible. Why can they heal some diseases and not others, Jesus and the apostles could even raise the dead. Why do some want money to build big hospitals when they can heal by touch. Why do the sick have to go to them instead of them walking where the sick are.

What I see in these ministers is not what I see in Biblical healing.
---Harold on 11/1/10


A certain controversial evangelist supposedly prophesied over a friend of mine that she would have a healing ministry.

She thought she was supposed to put together her own traveling dog-and-pony show.

I told her, "Sally, you are a nurse. You already have a healing ministry!"

it is much easier for most folks to believe someone else is worthy of healing than they are... ---shirley on 10/29/10
---Shawn.M.T on 10/30/10


No,I don't it is much easier for most folks to believe someone else is worthy of healing than they are.I do believe that they should say that we are all anointed to pray for the healing of others.If a person doesn't believe that then they should quit praying for ANYONE to be healed of anythung.

John 14:12-14

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto my Father.

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Based on these verses I dont understand why Christians arent walking the streets healing people and casting out devils in the name of Jesus Christ.
---JackB on 10/27/10

Jackb, Jesus never said we would do greater miracles. These verses are not about miracles but works. The works here is preaching the Gospel.

We are not the healer-
God is-Eloah'
He has given His name to use.
He has given the Authority.

Whose hands does he use?
His servants.
God is the power-we are His servants.
The anointing is from the anointed-Son-In the name given.

2Cor1:21,Heb1:9
Use the oil-laying on of Hand.
Repentance is made unto remission
God is God-His will done.
---char on 10/29/10


Huh?
///GLASSES because they can't heal their eyes///

The author is in the name.
The author and name is given.
Jn 14,15,16,17
God is God-capable of healing through who He wills.
---char on 10/29/10


Mark, thanks so much. I rarely agree with very much on CN blogs. I love to read them but don't respond very often.
---shira3877 on 10/28/10


Healing was part of the signs and wonders program, starting with Christs' earthly ministry.
Matt. 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. (not just a headache)

It diminished with the revelation of the BoC to the Apostle Paul. It got to the point Paul had no healing powers.

2 Tim. 4:20 Erastus abode at Corinth: but Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick
I am not putting God in a box, but the healing you read about in the 4 gospels you see no more.
---michael_e on 10/28/10


Shira, your correct in your answer to Jack. What's happened is man has taken passages for the Apostles and given them to man today. We do know God heals. He heals whom He wills to heal. We are called to pray for the sick in the name of Jesus Christ, and wait for God's will. Since man has created a god whom they can control, all sorts of ideas have entered Christianity. We are here to give glory to God. We are not here for God to give glory to us. In the Apostolic times, the Apostles were empowered with gifts that would help them to bring in the New Testament. We already have the Word of God written. No one alive has more power then God. And no one orders God to do anything. Scriptures should be read in the context for which they were written.
---Mark_V. on 10/28/10


Jack, what you said does not mean God will do everything you ask. God does heal in His time and it may not be our time. God healed my daughter. She is in heaven now and not in pain anymore. That is what I prayed. God didn't answer the way I wanted but the way He wanted. Most of what you say is out of context.

False teachers because they wear glasses?
Not at all. Maybe they are satisfied to wear glasses. I've worn glasses as long as I can remember and would feel almost "naked" without them.

Do you think these teachers shouldn't wear dentures? Or arch supports in their shoes? God is able to heal the "sick". I know some will disagree, but why insist that God use HIS power, instead of our using the simple aids He has already made available..., seems a bit presumptuous to me.

Brother, Guiding a horse to Water and finding that he doesn't drink, is no reason to question the Belief that he needs Water. \\

What remains to be seen is if it were indeed water to which the horse were guided.
---Cluny on 10/27/10


Rob that is classic very funny ...healers needing glasses not healing themselves

although the gift of healing is available to those who have indwelling of Gods Holy Spirit it is not used as a circus side show like it is promoted today

what many fail to understand is many of these preachers are false prophets using a power given by the ministers of light 2Corin 11

Satan can deceive using miracles ...one must look to the healer to see if he speaks truth from Holy Scripture ...most prefer to boast of themselves AS healers

Not everyone believes as we believe, and the continuation of our beliefs do not require them to...

It just may be that that horse really doesn't believe/know(at least not right then in that moment), that he needs Water... but that doesn't mean he won't accept a drink of Water later !!!

"Now if I pray for someone and they are not healed, am I to question my Christianity or faith or belief in God?"

These two things I know:

1. God Heals Exodus 15:26, "for I am the LORD that healeth thee."
2. We all will die. This indisputable fact proves that God does not heal every time.
---Bruce5656 on 10/27/10


-- Rod :

Brother, The individuals you described are not considered false teachers or preachers lacking the ability to Heal just b/c they themselves are not perfectly physically healed.

Understand that Healing comes from your Faith in the Lord, and Faith comes by Hearing and Hearing by the Word of God !!! Amen

It's only the receiving of God's Word that you should be looking for from any preacher/teacher when endeavoring for the revealing of Healing in your life.

We're to seek first not the flesh/physical but the spiritual, the Kingdom of God... by looking to put our Trust in the Perfection of God's Word, and not in a man or his physical appearance.

\\Who has the annoying power to heal, answer, any Christian.\\

Did you really mean to say "annoying," mima? LOL.

\\Now if I pray for someone and they are not healed, am I to question my Christianity or faith or belief in God? \\

Remember that prayer is NOT a magic charm to get God to do what you want Him to do. He is sovereign, we are not.
---Cluny on 10/27/10


Who has the annoying power to heal, answer, any Christian.

I have seen healings and I have enjoyed many personal healings.

Now if I pray for someone and they are not healed, am I to question my Christianity or faith or belief in God?

The above question is very difficult to come to grips with. Do you have any ideas?

Rob
before we point fingers at others whatever their calling is, we need to make sure we are doing what God has called us to do.

Just because God has Anointed mankind to do his work, they are not perfect, why do many fruit checkers try to point out every flaw in another. Lets try and get our own house in order. And pray for those that don't meet our expectations. Amen
---Lea on 10/27/10


Most of those that preach healing do not have faith for themselves to be healed, they feel as if they deserve their impairment or as if it's their burden to carry. I personally have been used greatly in healing ministry, yet I struggled with severe back pain for almost two years- then it dawned on me that Jesus healed me too! Once that simple revelation clicked in my pea brain, I made a stand against the devil and I was completely healed! Never an issue since then...

Teachers and preachers are one group but you also included healers.
Must teachers and preachers have healing powers?
Many teachers do not claim powers of any kind.
Are teachers and preachers expected ,by their peers,to heal also?

MATTHEW 24:24 FOR there shall arise false CHRISTS, and false prophets, and shall shew great sign and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible they would deceive the very elect
---RICHARD on 10/26/10


No, not on the basis of wearing glasses.

God heals in many ways.

99% of the time He uses natural methods and processes based on laws that He Himself set up.

As regards that 1% remaining--what doctrine comes with it?

THAT is the most important thing.
