Am I Going To Die

I have cancer and the doctors have given me up to die. My Christian friends tell me to accept this as God doesn't heal anymore today. Should I fast and pray or make out my Will?

Moderator - Of course God is still in the healing business today.

Miracles absolutely occur. God has always been a God of miracles, and will continue to be a God of miracles. Praying and fasting will help, but remember what Christ said to the Father: "Not mine will, but thine be done". Ultimately our fate is determined by a caring Father in Heaven. Remember that God does love you, and is very aware of your concerns. Talk to him, plead for your life, but we must all learn to say, not mine but thine be done.

The Bible Says, That the Little Books contain ALL the things one Does in Life, even Thoughts & out of them ALL shall be Judged.
The Saved will get rewards And The lost, They'll start taking swimming lessons in the Lake.

Do you Really think you can or will be able to stand IN his Presence & USE HIS words to Plead your Case? HOGWASH, Show Me Scripture.
The Blood of Jesus Pleads your CASE, And Covers the Things Written in those little Books.
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 4/28/08

---tom2 tells it like it is here. When we approach God, we need his word to plead your case before him. If we do not have his word on our side of the argument. We are doomed to failure. God loves to hear his word quoted back to him!!!!
---Mima on 4/28/08

i think that you should make your will and then pray and God has a plan for all of us so whatever he has planned for you accept it for it is the right choice from God

I am reminded of the tale of a man on the roof of his house during a flood. Neighbours pass by in boats offering to give him a ride. He replies "The Lord will save me". As the waters rise more people come by in boats and he refuses them all proclaiming God will save him. The man drowns and when in heaven asks God why He didn't save him. God replies I sent your neighbours in boats to help but you refused the ride.
---K_McLean on 4/26/08

God is not accountable to us at all. he is bound by his word to do what he has said he will do, because God cannot lie.
---tom2 on 4/14/08

The Lord can heal but it is good to be level headed and sober minded and prepare in case he chooses not to.
Fast and pray for a healing and prepare to put off the tabernacle and let his will be done.
Mainly though, love him regardless of which way he takes it.
---Frank on 4/14/08

friend,we are all gouing to die but what joy heaven will be! God doestill heal but not everyone.I have a life shortening illness that God has clearkly said He is not going to heal through no fault of myown but so that i learn to rely on him and can bve a better witness seek God find out HIS will not what others think is His will i will pray for you
---doree4573 on 4/14/08

Anyone whom has an illness or a troublesome situation in their life, needs to speak to that illness or situation and demand it to leave in Jesus name. We need to start taking authority instead of backing down and just accept what life throws at us. We need to speak things as though they already are. One thing to remember if your a child of God, your a winner either way. If he heals you here on earth or have life forever if you go.

Your friend is LIEING! However, you should be prepared. Thanking God that you are going to be seeing Him, perhaps soon.

Miracles happen all the time. However, everyone should make a will. Accidents happen all the time as well, and it is so complicated for lawyers etc and can cause family fights if there is no will. So yes, make a will anyway.

James 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up, and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Precious Friend, The doctors may have given up but God has not. My prayers are with you angel. God is still in the healing business and always will be. Don't believe people who tell you otherwise. You should continue to do all three. Continue to trust God for your healing. Make sure you have given Christ your heart(born again) this is the main thing. Please email me if you care to. I will pray with you and encourage you and do whatever I can to help you along the way. My prayers are with you. I love you.

Dear Friend.Just wanted to say a little more to you. How is one born again? Very simply: (1) Admit you are a sinner without any righteousness (2)Believe that when Christ died on the cross it was in your place for your sins (3)Believe that in response to that faith, that God pardons all your sin and will receive you into Heaven,"He who believes on Him(Christ) is not condemned but he who believes not ,is condemned already". John 3:18. Make sure you are saved my friend.

**Very few people today are true Christians.**

Et reliqua.

While I usually disagree with catherine on everything, for the most part here she is correct. We are supposed to pray for the healing of ourselves and others. Of course, just as there's more than one way of being sick, there's more than one way of healing.

I cannot tell you what God will do for you in this life. After all, He is sovereign and we are not. But I can say for sure that in the world to come, there is no cancer.
---Jack on 5/27/07

We should all be careful to note: Very few people today are true Christians. Anyone who lies and saids God does not heal today is no person of God. Everyone should have a will whether you are sixteen or one hundred years old.

---ROBERT_M on 5/26/07

I would say both. Make you will and prepare for your death, but at the same time put it in God's hands and submit to His will. Either He has plans for you here on earth, miracles still occur, or He wants you with Him in Heaven. Either way, God Bless and I hope you do well.

Ask Father God,should I pray and ask you to take me home? or should I pray and ask you to heal me? I did what James Chapter 5 says to do. I called upon the elders of the church. The Pastor came out, anointed my mother with oil, prayed for her, etc. I read healing scriptures to her day and night and the Lord told me in 2002 He would heal her and He did. Now she's very ill again, her liver has stopped working. I haven't given up. I have been crying out for Mercy on her life. I'm not ready to lose her.

Lanson, Proverbs 4:20-22 says the Word of God is life and health and healing to our flesh. The footnote in the KJV indicates that God's Word is like medicine to our bodies. If you Google: healing scriptures, you will find lists of Bible verses that pertain to healing. Spend as many hours a day as you can reading and meditating these verses. Use several different translations if you can. Go over them again and again. Give yourself to the Word in this way, trust the Lord, and see what happens.
---DoryLory on 12/2/06

I'd pray and fast but make out a will too. I think it is important to have a will since you never really know when that day will come. I'm 27 and in perfect health and I have a will. cancer isn't the end, to live is christ and to die is gain. Make the most of your life. By making a will you may be able to minister to people even after your death. But if you continue to live, preach the gospel always and when necissary use words.

Hi Lason, I know it is somewhat think of what lie's ahead. This may or may not be the time for you to receive your new body. What are the reasons to stay here? reaching others? A good one. But, What God has for each of His Children is much better than this world. Go ahead and reach while you can. My son is 28, dieing also. But He does not know Jesus yet. In his case, this is not good. Praise God, you are ready to meet him! We will all go home soon! I believe!
---Linda3939 on 12/1/06

Keep believing that God is able to heal your body. Nothing is impossible for Him. Trust him and take him at his word. Jesus said come unto me all who are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Also, God's word says to be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord. Please don't give up. We are human and we do have a right to be afraid when someone tells us we're going to die. God will be with you even until the end of the world. Be blessed

Hi Lanson,

You know it's okay to not want to die and to pray for a miracle. It's also okay to be afraid of dying. Yes, you can be assured of Jesus's promises - but that doesn't mean there isn't still some natural trepidation there. Jesus understands that.

Until they put U in the grave take courage! God heals every day from the common cold to cells such as cancer. Stir up hope, surround yourself w/laughter, smiles, up beat people!

Is Cancer scary of course I understand but I promise U I have seen people healed, delivered yet others go on to God. But take heart either way He will give U great grace & peace.

Sometimes what keeps us from receiving is the fact that we believe we are worthy by some merit of our own instead of the merit of Jesus Christ alone. Just because someone has sat on a pew for 40 years, read his Bible and prayed every day, and tithed 10% of his income the whole time does not mean he is worthy of healing. As a matter of fact, trust in those things will cut one off from receiving.
---Linda6563 on 11/18/06

The only basis of our receiving anything from God is Christ and Him crucified. I know people who have had arthritis for 40 years and have sat on pews for just as long go home with that same arthritis when the power to heal was present and was manifested in the drunk who went to the altar for the first time and had done nothing at all worthy of such a gift. It is by grace through faith.

Don't look left, right, but up. No recipe to follow outside of God's Word.

If fear tries to come in, say "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus." If you can't sleep at night, say Jesus in your spirit. Peace will come, repeat 1X or 50X. It works. Surround yourself with believers, pastor that sits by your side, reads bible, prays, very comforting. Find new Christian friends through a Church, that believes God still heals. Watch movies that lighten your heart, with laughter. Write back.

Jack, Do you mean ..."hold back" from death? Sure, death is the best thing that happens to a Christian. But when you hear the news,your first thought isn't "Oh good, I'm going to heaven!" For me, sitting around just waiting... for either death OR God's healing was unthinkable. Pesonally, I felt responsibility for my life as long as I had it. If my efforts failed, O.K.,I'd accept death. I think Lanson will KNOW when it his time. If he's ready to die, he won't need anyone's opinion.
---Donna2277 on 11/19/06

There have been many healed from physical & mental anguish by faith in God. There have been many just as worthy but died anyway. We are the clay. God is the potter. Sad in human understanding but true. IF you have a purpose on this earth that God needs you here for, you WILL survive this. Pray to see if there is a purpose for you. I have personally seen miracles of faith as well as losses. Do not give up on God. He will not give up on you. Never judge a product by the sidewalk salesmen's opinions.
---mikefl on 11/18/06

It's curious.

There are two blogs here asking what people would do if they knew the date of their death. All sorts of answers have been given.

Yet, there is someone on this blog who has been told that he will be meeting the Lord possibly sooner than he had expected, and so many are telling him, in effect, "Hold back!"

Philippians 1:21
---Jack on 11/18/06

Lanson, God's will is different for each person. My nephew of 18 died 2 years ago from the most horrible form of cancer there is. Not only was he saved, but his life gave a great testimony to all who knew him. In spit of the outward that was parishing, the inward was renewed day by day. The Lord works in mysterious ways. He will never leave or forsake, no matter what the circumstances are. NEVER give up hope. Keep living each day to the fullest. And don't shut out your friends or family.
