There are Christians today who will say that God doesn't heal anymore. Or others says there is no such thing as divine healing. Can I ask you a question? Do you believe that too? If God stopped healing people that Jesus is not the same yesterday, today and forever, but let God be proved true and every a man a liar. (Romans 3:4).
I have noticed in the gospels that when people hear about Jesus coming to their town that they bring bring their sick. They have heard that Jesus the healer is coming! Can you imagine being sick or someone you know is sick and the one that heals is coming how that would excite you? Some churches hold a healing service and people would come in droves to get healed! And yes, people do get healed at these services. So I asked myself this: Why is healing so much mentioned in the Bible? Why do God wants us to see Jesus as the healer?
The answer came as I watched this video below:
fb.watch/4nhL8jjkvg/ from Lord of Host Church in NE Omaha. Id healing wasn't for today, then read James 5 where it asks, "Is there anyone sick among us?" And James, was the Lord's brother! He didn't believe in Jesus at first until after Jesus went to the cross.
Another belief that some Christians believe is that Jesus only a spiritual healer. WRONG! Reread the gospel. You can find that every sickness and disease is a physical condition.
Now, I don't know why someone you love or know never got healed, but I can say is healing requires faith. My father had fourth stage lung cancer, but he didn't have faith. My mother, sister and I did, but he needed faith to receive healing. He even told my sister that he couldn't lay his hand on his mother because he had "puny faith."
God is the God that heals us because we live in a fallen world. If man had not sin, he would not send his son on the cross and he would not take our sickness and infirmities along with their sins. Jesus is God and He still heals.
