The reason Jesus didn't heal many people in His hometown, Nazareth, was because of their lack of faith, amd therefore He was rejected. >>>>"Doubt and unbelief can destroy you", is what God said to me one day.

Jesus didn't heal everyone in the bible. Mk 6:4-5. Christ healed a few sick folk not everyone that came to him. the reason being is because, of hinderence got in the way.

Our time isn't God's time. There are numerous reasons, to which we don't have the answer to.

"Pray without ceasing." i know brother Job prayed for healing every day, but nevertheless God did not heal him right away, instead God healed him in God's timing. God took Job down into very deep levels of revelation before he healed him, and if he would have healed him sooner, then Job would be undone and would not have come to know and really understand God on this deep level. Please read Job 42:5,6.

Moderator, it may have been not being paying attention to the Holy Spirit. He may have wanted me to come against a spirit of infirmity.

Moderator - Are you saying that most of the time that you are disobeying the Holy Spirit?
---Rickey on 1/21/06

We are asked to pray the prayer of faith for the sick. Why would God have us do that if it was HIs will for them to be sick? Why would it say in Matt.8:17 that He took our sickness and diseases and that this was a prophecy of Isaiah 53:4-5. Sickness and sin, all paid for by the work of the cross.

Moderator - Do you lack faith to believe the scriptures as you understand them?
---john on 1/21/06

I have preached to a hundred people and saw only one get saved and I've laid hands on a hundred sick people and only one gets healed. Same reasons for both sides. Just because the others didn't get saved doesn't mean God wants them lost. Just because they didn't all get healed doesn't mean God wants people sick. Whatever Jesus died and paid for is available for us.
---john on 1/21/06

100% no, but that still doesn't nulify the fact that it is God's will for everyone to be healed. As I said before, some didn't get healed because of lack of knowledge. God is no respector of persons.

Moderator - Did you lack faith, did you lack knowledge or what did you lack since the people were not healed?
---Rickey on 1/20/06

Rickey ... I think the answer to the question that Mod has put to you repeatedly, and I also have asked, must be "No" Can you now confirm that? And if the answer is "No" do you think the reason is that you had insufficient faith, or those who would have liked healing had too little faith?
---alan8869_of_UK on 1/20/06

Just because they don't get healed doesn't mean that it isn't God's will for everyone to be healed. It's God's will for everyone to be saved & healing comes with salvation. So it is God's will for everyone to be healed. Salvation-Sozo-prosperity, welfare, health, healing.

Moderator - Have 100% of the people you prayed for been healed?
---Rickey on 1/20/06

The Lords Prayer categorically states"thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven" while we may pray for special Favours , which do not follow the pattern we hoped for does not mean prayers are not answered There is some other form of Alleviation that is often forth coming.God has his plans & reasons & one must be agreeable to conceed to his wishes.I am sure its an understood thing.
---Emcee on 1/20/06

Mod ... it happens frequently here that some with a categoric dogmatic point of view gets challenged with a question that if answered honestly will weaken their standpoint. So they just do not answer, but it is to be hoped that readers will realise what is going on.
---alan8869_of_UK on 1/20/06

Rickey ... you seem unwilling to answer the moderators question "Do 100% of the people get healed that you pray for?"

Moderator - Thanks Alan, I knew you would like this one.
---alan8869_of_UK on 1/20/06

We had a testimony at our church by a newly saved lady who was a nurse to many sick/dying people. The man who lead her to Christ told her he felt God had used his sickness to reach her and that his dying was worth it. I think God can use us for his Glory even in our sickness.
---wenda7494 on 1/20/06

Having prayed for many people to be healed, I know of only two documented healings that have taken place. Now I know that the fault doesn't lie with God. Those that I prayed for surely had as much faith as Lazarus had laying in the tomb! So where are we, could it be that is my lack of faith that is at fault? One of the reasons I believe the fault is mine. In the field of salvations the percentage is much much higher Feel free to comment anyway you see fit.

For instance, Paul's thorn in the flesh was not sickness, but persecution. If a person takes the time to read the pretext and foretext they will see that. The promises of God are yes and amen(so be it). God isn't saying yes I want you sick, but "Yes, for sure, definitely I want you healed". As a matter of fact, Salvation includes healing not just not going to hell.

Moderator, I know and am fully persuaded that it is God's will for everyone to be healed. Like I said before, folks don't get healed because they don't know that it is God's will for them to be healed. Some say that the Lord is teaching them something from it. That's not true though. Hosea 4:6 let's us know that people are cut off because of lack of knowledge. Some reject the knowledge that it is God's will for them to be healed.

Never give up on God! It's always His will to heal but only He knows the big picture. If someone isn't healed instantly that doesn't mean healing won't come later. Keep trusting Him to work it out. Stay close to Him so you can hear His voice and follow the direction He gives you.

Proverbs 4:20-22 says the Word works like medicine (v.22). So take God's medicine in abundance by studying healing scriptures, listening to healing videos and CDs.
---DoryLory on 1/20/06

When you get a perscription from the doctor, you don't take one pill and say, 'it didn't work, I'm still sick.' No, you take several pills every day for an extended period of time. Then if you're still not well, you go back for more. Do the same with God's Word ... submerge yourself in it. His Word works like medicine. It is supernatural, it causes itself to come to pass. (Isaiah 55:10,11)
---DoryLory on 1/20/06

No, that is not what I am saying. What I am saying is that it wasn't because it wasn't God's will. There are several reasons. #1 is not knowing that is the will of God for everyone of His kids to be healed.(3John2; IPeter 2:24)

Moderator - So people don't get healed 100% of the time by you because you are confused if it is God's will? But other Christians can heal 100% because they are not confused?

In Christ we are heirs of God and joint-heirs w/ Christ(Romans 8:17) Meaning that everything that belongs to God belongs to us & everything that belongs to Jesus belongs to us.
---Rickey on 1/20/06

We as the righteousness of God just have to lay hold on His promise that by Jesus' stripes we were healed.(Hebrews 6:12) I am not saying that we attempt to control God, but we definitely have a blood bought right to demand of Him and have it.(IICorinthians 5:21; Hebrews 11:6;IPeter 3:12) God's will is His word. HE is held accountable to His word. (Jeremiah 1:12; Isaiah 55:11; Job 22:28; IJohn 5:14-15)
He has upheld all things by the power of His word.(Hebrews 1:3)

Moderator - Do 100% get healed that you pray for?
---Rickey on 1/20/06

Contrary to popular belief we don't have to wait on God to heal someone. He has already done it.(IPeter 2:24) We just have to lay hold on it. God never says " No I won't heal this person or I will heal him & won't heal that person". God is no respector of persons.

Moderator - Are you stating 100% of the people that you have prayed for have been healed?
---Rickey on 1/20/06

Mima, I might suggest that God heals us in different ways not just from the cessation of sickness. I have been a hospice volunteer for eleven years. Many people at the end of their lives pray for healing. And I believe that they are healed in ways we cant comprehend. Healed of hatred, jealously, etc.

You definitely don't tell them it isn't God's will for them to be healed. The bible points out in several places that it is.(3John2; IPeter2:24;Matthew8:17;IJohn3:8) Do what Jesus did with the centurion, spoke the Word.(Proverbs 18:21;Job22:28;Mark11:23) Minister the word to them to build up there faith(Romans 10:17) At work I laid my hand on a woman for her to be healed of a cold & she was. She just simply believed. It is as simple as getting saved.

Moderator - Nobody stated to tell them it isn't God's will. However, as stated earlier everything must be in God's will. Sometimes God's answer is yes, no or later and we can't control God. Attempting to control God is a false doctrine. I have seen hundreds of healings, however they were within the will of God or they wouldn't have happened.
