Is Jesus Always Willing To Heal
Does this verse said Jesus was willing to heal? "And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed." Since Jesus is not a respect of persons, do you feel he would be as willing to heal you as he was the leper?

Sometimes, God chooses not to heal.

yes Jesus wants to heal us and wants us to Love HIM

No doubt Jesus wanted to heal all, yet did not because of unbelief. He knows best in each case--what gives the best witness to right and best opportunities to be saved--so He may not always heal. He "could" save people in their sins, but then sin, suffering, death, rebellion would go on forever. Therefore He "cannot" do this because of His love. As a child, we trust and say, not my will, but Thine. Since He lives by principles and not feeling, He will always do what is best.

The reason it seems like Jesus wouldn't physically heal some Christians is not necessarily unbelief. The Spirit of God revealed the reason to me but it is too complicated to explain on these blogs.

I believe God desires all of us to be whole, healed in all ways, and yet He does not heal in all circumstances for various reasons. One reason may be unbelief, but if one is not healed it may be for other reasons, such as when Paul had the "thorn" God did not remove. He may wish to use our unhealed condition for a higher purpose, it may be humility, dependence upon Him...He alone knows and His ways are higher then ours.

donna is right. it's not the amount of faith, but it's Thy will be done. this 'more faith ' is a false charasmatic doctrine. surely there were many sick people in the crowd but he chose to heal her.

Jesus is always willing to Heal.Jesus took stripes for that.The Father had Jesus to pay the price and if it were not of value would a loving God abuse you?Of course not so God is always ready to heal or He wouldn't have Jesus to pay the price for healing.1 Peter 2:24
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Yes He is. The more pertinent question is whether we are willing to be healed by Him.

Shared what God said. Jesus is able to save us from our sins because He paid the price for them, they belong to Him. We have all sinned, come short--failed Him. Therefore we need His blood applied--He is faithful to forgive and to cleanse. So if my sin is forgiven and cleansed, where is it? I believe it is on Him, not on me. Therefore He has saved me from sin and not in sin. Second, I believe He came to make an end of sin. So it is vital that we be saved from sin as He will not save us in it.

He would be if that person had the faith as the Leper did. It takes faith to move the hand of God. Sometimes it isn't God's will for all to be healed, we don't know the mind of Christ, and his ways aren't our ways.

To Wayne; if God cannot save us in our sins and the Bible clearly teaches." That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" and it also teaches," that while we were yet sinners he died for us". How can these people become saved if God does not save them in their sins. If we must be without sin in order to be saved, what need do we have of a savior? Salvation is of God. Not man thinking he is sinless!!!

I don't know.
To say that God is no respector of persons is not the same as saying that His will is the same for everyone
John the Baptist was killed early in Christ's ministry. The apostle John lived to an advanced age on the Isle of Patmos.
Did Jesus prefer one man to the other? No.
Was His will the same for both men? I believe not.

Mima ... It is fairly clear, surely, that Jesus was willing to heal the leper ... otherwise He would not have done so?
Because He chose to heal the leper does not mean that He is subject to our "faithful" demands that He heal us of our physical ills. He may heal us physically, or He may not. But He does heal our spiritual ills, if we ask Him in faith
