What about Lazarus?

John 11:6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was...????

If it be God's will that NONE should suffer and die then we have to conclude that Jesus acted outside the Father's will; AND your faith and mine in Jesus Christ is a loss, becuase he's not God then, He's not Messiah, He's surely not Holy, and he's a Devil wearing flesh!

Again: PAULS OWN WORDS WERE SICKNESS! Didn't you read what I showed you?
---Pharisee on 7/14/08

Willow, there could be many reasons.
Mark 11:23-26; if a person has aught toward someone, it could hender prayer. Unforgiveness is a strong reason many don't get healed. Unforgiveness toward God or a person.
If a person isn't willing to be healed they won't get it.(Matthew 18:18)
My point is that we have the authority & right to be healed & that God doesn't put sickness on a person. He doesn't need a person in heaven to help Him. He needs us here on earth to minister the gospel.

exzucuh, I reiterate, you have no truth in you, and you will believe whatever you desire.
---Eloy on 6/12/06

Your right about that, It 's either truth or error, but what you are claiming is error, is the word of God. The only error I have made is trying to get you to believe it. convince me with the word i'm in error because I won't waste my breath with childish insults.
---exzucuh on 6/10/06

exzucuh, it is not possible for anyone to be in truth and also to be in error, therefore your judgment is false.
---Eloy on 6/10/06

There are two kinds of works judaism works for salvation and the kind of works James is talking about works of Faith and these works have the evidence of God doing something in us and through us by the law of the Spirit of Grace that was provided by the blood of Jesus, if you walk in the Spirit you will not fullfil the Law of sin and death it has no power over you.
---exzucuh on 6/9/06

Eloy, Jesus said if a man bear witness of himself his witness is not true so the only witness I have is the word I have spoken and it bears record of itself, I do not Judge you because you are a man of God but you are in error and your words will judge you for you are held accountable for every thing you say and double for what you preach.
---exzucuh on 6/9/06

exzucuh, there is no truth in you, and you will believe whatever you desire.

Romans 7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
---exzucuh on 6/9/06

3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
Romans 4:14 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:
---exzucuh on 6/9/06

Eloy you are the deceived one not Rickey, the vale of Moses is over you heart you got your hands on the plow of Grace and are looking back to the Law,Why would you trade Jesus for Moses who stuck the rock three times and lost his promise every time you turn back to the law your striking Jesus who gave his life for the law of Grace to be in effect for every believer.
---Exzucuh on 6/9/06

.rickey, Works are indeed necessary; Peter did not experience God's grace by staying in the boat, but he received God's grace only after he acted, by stepping out of the boat and walking towards Jesus, then God's grace sustained him on top of the water, and not before.
---Eloy on 6/9/06

.rickey, you are deceived in believing in cheap grace, which is unfounded in Scripture, for God's grace is not free but instead costs your whole entire life, else you have no grace but a delusion. Please read the scriptures that Jesus spoke, which I cited below.
---Eloy on 6/9/06

In Christ we are free to live & enjoy the life that Jesus paid for us to have. Romans 8:1-3 lets us know that IN CHRIST we are free to follow God. We don't have to walk around in condemnation or bondage, but in liberty to follow God. We are not servants, but sons.(Galatians 4:7) Enjoy your salvation man!!! Lay hold of God's promises!!! Live life to the fullest!!! Jesus paid for it.
---Rickey on 6/8/06

Eloy, salvation is a free gift, but it does cost you your life. It doesn't mean we can't still enjoy our life or Jesus came in vain.(John 10:10) Paul said, " I am crucified with Christ..." Yes we were crucified with Christ, but that doesn't put us in the bondage of doing works to obtain salvation. It actually frees us to enjoy salvation.
---Rickey on 6/8/06

In Revelation 20:12-13, that is the judgement done by God Himself at His great white throne. It is for everyone who denied Christ & opposed God starting from satan & including everyone who doesn't except Jesus as Savior & Lord.

In 2Corinthians 5:9-10, Paul was referring to believers appearing before the judgement seat of Christ. When we do we won't be casted into hell, but be rewarded according to how we carried out our purpose here. We don't have to work to be in right-standing with God, Jesus already paid for that.(2Corinthians 5:21)
---Rickey on 6/8/06

Eloy, in Matthew 25:31-46, Jesus wasn't talking about christians. He was referring to the nations. This is the 3rd judgement mentioned. It is the judgement of the nations.
---Rickey on 6/8/06

1. You are His workmanship created IN CHRIST JESUS unto good works(Ephesians 2:10)
2. You are the righteousness of God IN HIM(JESUS)[2Corinthians 5:21]
3. You are a new creature(2Corinthians 5:17)
4. There is no condemnation to you because you're IN CHRIST(THE ANOINTED ONE)[Romans 8:1]
5. You reign in life because you're IN CHRIST[Romans 5:17]
6. You're free from the law of sin & death IN CHRIST[Romans 8:2]
7. In CHRIST YOU are more than a conqueror[Romans 8:37]
---Rickey on 6/8/06

It's awesome to find out who you are IN CHRIST and what is your's IN CHRIST. If you check out every verse the says,"IN HIM" or "IN WHOM" OR "IN CHRIST" you'll find out who you are, what is your's, & your rights that you've obtained because you excepted Jesus as your Savior & Lord.

Eloy, you are in right-standing with God not by your works, but by the finished works of Jesus.(2Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 2:8-9)
Jesus did the work that no man could do. If we tried to work our way into heaven we would fail. Our works are as filthy rags.(Isaiah 64:6) So IN CHRIST are we made righteous, not by any work we have done or will do. But we are made the righteousness of God by faith in Christ.
---Rickey on 6/8/06

John 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. My works of righteousness are not my witness it is the works God is doing in me and through me.
---exzucuh on 6/8/06

.rickey: It is not in Scripture, and no where did Jesus say, "Do no works and you will be righteous", nor did he say "the righteousness of God cost nothing." On the contrary he said, "He that DOES THE WILL of my Father will enter into heaven; WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT: enter into the joy of your lord." He did NOT SAY, "He that believes in the Father will enter into heaven; Well believed, good and faithful believer: enter into the joy of your Lord."
---Eloy on 6/8/06

pt 2: you along with most so-called Christians are disobeying the 2nd Command of God. The 1st command most will obey, which is, love God; but the 2nd command is equally important, which is, love your neighbor. This Golden Rule in Matthew 7:12 is most important to God. Please read what Jesus says about doing works for salvation in Matthew 7:12,19-27; 25:34-46.
---Eloy on 6/8/06

pt 3: Jesus said if you love him, then you will obey his commandments. And it is by our works whether or not we are rewarded heaven or rewarded hell. Please read II Corinthians 5:9,10; Revelation 20:12,13. Also, please read what Jesus says about the cost of salvation in Luke 14:25-35.
---Eloy on 6/8/06

Thanks Exzucuh.
---Rickey on 6/7/06

Don't worry about it Ricky, you have exsousia authority Mark 6:7 the power to speak given by Jesus they don't have it and never will because they refuse to believe it. Jesus said you have what you believe.
---exzucuh on 6/7/06

Righteousness or right-standing with God is free through Christ.(2Corinthians 5:21; Romans 5:17; Romans 3:22) Like Abraham, he believed & it was imputed unto him for righteousness. God is so awesome that He gave us the gift of righteousness & we didn't have to work for it.

I called on Jesus, and he claimed me. And I confessed my lack of salvation and my need for it. I possess salvation today because he gave it to me. And the gift of righteousness is by no means free, it requires the cost of your entire life, the complete surrendering up of your whole life for his. This is why most people are not saved, they are not willing to relinquish there whole life up to God. Crucifying only part of your life to God is insufficient and vain. He wants all of you, or none.
---Eloy on 6/7/06

.rickey, I said the Sinner's Prayer and asked for forgiveness, and to be washed completely; I asked the Savior to save me from all sin, and to save my life; to remove all things that come between me and him, and to make me into a real born-again Christian; and to fill me to overflowing with his most Holy Spirit. Therefore that was not blabbin' and grabbin', but instead a crying out to the Lord to be saved and converted, and the Almighty Lord who is plenteous in pity and lovingkindness answered my prayers.
---Eloy on 6/7/06

Eloy, you used the blab it & grab it principle when you got saved. You can do the samething to lay hold on the promises of God.
You named & claimed Jesus as Lord.(Romans 10:9-10)
You confessed & possessed salvation.
You blabbed & grabbed the free-gift of righteousness.(Ephesians 2:8-9)
---Rickey on 6/7/06

Yes, Willow, God is sovereign. Meaning no one can control Him, but He can't heal, save, or superceed someone's will. If a person doesn't want to be healed or doesn't believe He will, then He won't.(Hebrews 11:6) He can't force a person to get saved. He is still God & always will be, but He has given us a free-will. He's sovereign because what His word says will come to pass. He is not sovereign where our faith is required. Jesus couldn't heal some folks because of doubt & unbelief.

I am still waiting for you to respond is GOD sovereign?
---willow on 6/7/06

Elder, I have a question. Why are you so stuck on believing that God puts sickness on folks? If God was only willing to heal some folks He would have to cease from being God because He would be acting as a respector of persons & opposing His own word.
---Rickey on 6/6/06

Elder, I do know this for sure that God isn't going to put sickness on someone. Some folks die from sickness because of unbelief & some because of lack of knowledge.(Hosea 4:6; Hebrews 11:6)
I can't answer all of your questions, but I know for certain that God, according to His Word, doesn't kill or put sickness on folks. If He did He would be unjust.(1Peter 2:24)
---Rickey on 6/6/06

What do you desire in your life? Find scriptures on it and confess them & you will possess it; if you do it by faith.
Instead of going by what you've heard or have been taught study the word yourself & do it.(Proverbs 18:20-21; Job 22:28; Mark 11:22-23; Romans 10:9-10; 2Corinthians 4:13)
God gives seed to the sower & the seed that He has given you is His word for you to sow/speak.(Mark 4:14)

---Rickey on 6/6/06

Eloy, if it is a false doctrine, why did Jesus do it? Why did Abraham do it? Why did the woman with the issue of blood do it?
---Rickey on 6/6/06

Elder, the word "infirmity" literally means " want of strength; weakness; frailty".
As a matter of fact if you look up the words "infirmity" and "weakness" they both mean the samething.
---Rickey on 6/6/06

Rickey I can't hear the music but I see you are still dancing around my question. I asked you to tell me what the Greek word infirmities mean. You still have not done that. How come a good Christian with a bad heart prays and is prayed for and doesn't get healed? Is that because God is not in charge?
---Elder on 6/6/06

.rickey, you are believing in fantasy. No one receives whatever they desire just by speaking it. That's one of the popular false doctrines today, called, "Name it and Claim it" or "Blab it and Grab it." The truth is, God is not a puppet on a string that man can yank or a fat bellied buddah that's rubbed obligating him to grant whatsoever wish or whim. "You all ask, and receive not, because you all ask amiss, that you all may consume upon your pleasures." James 4:3.
---Eloy on 6/6/06

We are speaking spirits.(John 4:24; Genesis 1:26-27;5:1)
God spoke and He had what He said.(Genesis 1 & Hebrews 11:3)
You are a spirit, have a soul(mind, will, emotion), and dwell in a body.
We are 3-in-1 just like God is 3-in-1.(IJohn 5:7)
Just like God declared a thing & had it, we can do the same.(Mark 11:23; Job 22:28; 2Corinthians 4:13; Romans 10:9-10)
---Rickey on 6/5/06

Eloy, we bind(cut off) and loose(allow & make way for) things in our own lives by the word of our mouth.(Proverbs 18:20-21) We have the authority & the God-kind of faith to move "mountains" & change situations by the word of our mouth.
---Rickey on 6/5/06

Elder, I've answered your question several times. I've read the context & see that the infirmity mentioned by Paul was weakness & that the thorn in the flesh was persecution. In verses 9-10 the word weakness & infirmity mean the samething, " weakness". But, if you want to believe that God puts sickness on you to humble you or to teach you something, I can't knock you. I'm just know what the word says concerning healing.(1Peter 2:24)
---Rickey on 6/5/06

.rickey, praying to have a mountain removed in your life is not the same as "binding and loosing". Jesus was speaking about faith, after he cursed the fig tree for bearing no fruit, and the next day they passed by and saw the tree withered up from the roots, the disciples were astonished, and Jesus said if you speak to a mountain to be removed without any doubting it will done. "What things soever you all desire, when you all pray, believe that you all receive, and you all will have."
---Eloy on 6/5/06

Rickey you focus on part of one verse yet tell us to read the entire chapter of II Cor 12.
There is no way that anyone can honesty miss the rest of v9 unless they do it with purpose.
Paul said, "Most gladly therefore will I rather GLORY in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
Yet you say he didn't say that.
Again tell us what the Greek word for "infirmities" mean. (Hint: It means sickness.)
You have sidestepped that question too many times.
---Elder on 6/5/06

I didn't make it up Jesus did.(Mark 11:23)
---Rickey on 6/4/06

rickey, that is mere gullible superstition. Even many Jews believe that whoever has the last word will get what they say. To prove this is empty-talk, test yourself and say to yourself, I am sick or I have a headache, then wait and see if it comes to pass; it will not, for it is vain foolishness. The "binding and loosing" has to do with holding the sinner accountable or forgiving the sin, and sometimes used in dealing with satanic strongholds, but not in common self-talk about sicknesses.
---Eloy on 6/4/06

Proverbs 18:21 death and life are in the power of the tongue. Sickness and healing are in the power of the tongue. If a person says they are sick jokingly they are speaking to their health telling it to be removed and casted into the sea and aren't doubting in their heart, but believing that those things that they have said shall come to pass and are having whatever they say.(Mark 11:23)
---Rickey on 6/4/06

Willow, some folks are sick because of the law of binding & loosing. For instance, a person joking & saying they've got a sickness is going to have whatever they say.

Willow, there is sickness here, but it isn't from GOD. Who's the god of this world? Satan. He is the author sickness. (2corinthians 4:4) When Adam gave up his lease satan took it up. True Jesus snatched satan of his power, but not his lease. Jesus did, however, give us the power to overcome sickness, sin, & spiritual death.
---Rickey on 6/4/06

In verse 9, Paul said, " my strength is made perfect in weakness". No where did Paul glory or even mention about sickness.
---Rickey on 6/4/06

OK, Rickey, let's read II Cor 12 together.
Tell me what "infirmities" in v5 means?
V7 the "thorn in the flesh" is proclaimed to be a messenger from Satan.
Did God have any control over this messenger being a "Thorn" to His servant?
If He didn't then His power is inferior.
If He did then He allowed this messenger to affect Paul.
Cond #2
---Elder on 6/4/06

Cond #2
V9 Paul again speaks of his infirmities.
V10 Paul lists his "problems."
He said there were infirmities (sickness), reproaches, necessities, and then persecutions along with distress.
If you elect to leave out these other items and focus on persecutions only you are doing the Word of God, yourself, and others an injustice.
Paul was a sick, frail, persecuted little guy when he wrote this passage. Do you see that sick part?
Do you see God's strength is shown here also?

I stated before that sickness is because of Adam's sin. If sickness was from God then He made a mistake putting Jesus on the cross so that we could have 1Peter 2:24.

That was my point all along; " God puts sickness on no one!!!" Not on Paul, Darlene, Elder, Pharisee, or anyone. When I was 11, my liver & kidneys shut down & I was supposed to get transplants. My family & friends prayed for me & I was healed w/o transplants. There's proof right there that God doesn't put sickness on a person because if He did He would've let me die.
---Rickey on 6/3/06

My point again is that God, Jehovah Rapha, never puts sickness on a person. You can find no where in the NT showing God doing so. In 2Corinthians 12, by reading the entire context, you can see that the thorn of Paul's flesh was persecution.

We're subject to laws of nature because we too are biological creatures. Our bodies, are still flesh and blood ,like any animal, the maladies that affect our species can come upon any person. Although we've taken on a Spiritual personna our bodies are still weak vessels, that's why Christ made healing available to us. When we do catch something which makes us sick then we have a Lord God that will heal when we call upon Him in faith. The Prayer of Faith will save (rescue from danger/destruction)the sick.

Does God have any control over whether they get sick or not? Could He stop it if He wanted?
Again you do not understand the working of God.

Sickness came because of Adam's fall. God didn't do it. I've read 2Corinthians 12:7-10 several times & see the samething, persecution. If God put sickness on you what good would it do you to use your faith in order to get healed? Why would we have 1Peter 2:24? I'm not knocking doctors, we need them. Just because we have them doesn't mean we have to be sick or that sickness is from God.
---Rickey on 6/2/06

Rickey you again ignored the statement that I made. You go back to your own statement of persecution. Infirmities means sickness. Check it yourself.
Your view presents a limited, powerless God who has no control over His enemy, Satan.
God does allow sickness. Sin causes sickness.
If God didn't allow sickness your physical body would not be getting older, you'd never need a Doctor or Dentist.
Who do you think allowed Paul's condition after he had prayed 3 times and didn't receive relief?
---Elder on 6/2/06

In 1Cor. 5 the person was in sin. Besides that, God didn't put sickness on him. Was Paul in sin when he had the thorn in the flesh? No. Even Jesus said we would have persecution for His name's sake.(John 15:20) God, Jehovah Rapha, wants us healthy. He doesn't take joy in a person being sick nor does He put it on them.
---Rickey on 6/2/06

I'm glad that you point out Malachi 3:6. God doesn't change. He doesn't go from Jehovah Rapha to "the Lord Who puts sickness on you". What good would it do a believer to pray for healing if, as believed by many, God put the sickness on them?(Hosea 4:6)

Elder, I didn't ignore your reference. Actually, I stated what the context was talking about. It wasn't talking about God putting sickness on Paul, but he was being persecuted. Again, my point is that God doesn't put sickness on anyone. If He did put sickness on us in order to teach us something or to "humble" us, then what good would it do to stand on the word for healing? Is God double-minded? He said He is the healer.(Exodus 15:26;1Peter 2:24)
---Rickey on 6/2/06

Rickey in I Cor 5 a Saved person got in sin. Paul judged him and told the church what to do. They were to put him out of the church so that Satan could attack and destroy his body that his spirit might be saved.
Do you think God allowed that? Satan is not able to do anything without Gods permission. You have completely ignored my reference to the infirmities of Paul which are sickness. Why is that?

The New Testament scriptures aren't showing God working with people differently then he did in the Old Testament except in death.

That's what makes the Bible fluid from Old Testament to New is that God's works in relation to man don't change, he always gave grace to those that believed on him, Check out Hebrews 11 if you don't believe it or hear it from the Lord him self:

Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I CHANGE NOT; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
