If God’s will is for all to be healed, and people die, wouldn’t this mean then that God’s will doesn’t happen?

Q: f God’s will is for all to be healed, and people die because they aren’t healed, wouldn’t this mean then that God’s will doesn’t happen?

A; It is of course God’s will that ALL are healed, because a loving God could have no other will. So why doesn’t God heal everybody? Remember, ageing and death itself is a form of illness and we all die. But this dies not mean God does not want to heal all. The thing is, it is up to God when who and how he intervenes in our fallen world and heals to show HIS glory. I don’t believe as Nabeel says that God wills sickness on anyone. This world is the Devil’s domain and fallen – just as with

Why doesn’t God Heal Everybody?

IMHO (could be wrong:) I think we Christians sometimes see healing in the wrong way – as if God is a genie and when we say the right worlds or have enough faith we should always be healed. This would be like God was playing prayer games and He does not do that. The fact is the world is fallen, people get sick and die because of the curse we know about in Genesis. However – God will intervene at His choosing at certain times to display HIS glory and power OVER SATAN. And yes – Jesus healed all who asked him that were in his presence in the Bible which adds some mystery. But whatever God does – He is not vindictive and does will – either now or in the world to come that all are healed. Remember Jesus was not spared the cross. That said, I am praying and believe that God can heal Nabeel. He has good work to do. Here’s another article on why God does not always heal here and now.

How Does One Know What Is True or Counterfeit Religion?

There are lots of counterfeits in the world – so which is the true religion?  For a start, what about professionals – how do they identity counterfeits? For instance – do bank clarks study counterfeit notes in order to identify the real ones? No – they are forced to spend hours, days, months studying the real item, then a counterfeit is instantly recognisable.

Anything of value – in this case the truth is always precious and must be searched for

Treasure must be searched for and by definition can never be easy to find (or it would not be treasure). So until one searches for, and finds the real thing – it will be impossible to recognise a counterfeit – and you will always say “who can know?”
Is this why the Bible makes a point to tell us that we must study and weigh all things. We must not be idle and expect things to fall in our lap if we are looking to find the real and true religion – and yes – the Bible does use the word ‘pure religion! One thing God hates is laziness we read in the Bible.

How to know a counterfeit from a con

What employer would give someone a job who could not be bothered to study, look smart, buy a suit, get to the interview, pass the interview and have a good knowledge of their potential employer? None I imagine. Thankfully there is however such a thing as grace so our mistakes and laziness can be overlooked by God if we love Him and love truth wherever we find it.

Does God Always Heal Here and Now?

Q: Does God always heal those that pray for healing here on earth in this day and age?

Why doesn’t God always heal? Well, here is my humble opinion on God healing people from physical and mental sickness, from what I read in Bible and see here on earth;

In my opinion from reading the Bible, God’s will HAS to be to heal – He is a God of love. But here’s where we find ourselves in regard to healing in this world; The world has chosen the itself over Him, and fallen accordingly. Therefore He has removed His hand of protection from it and us, as we see everywhere – no one is immune from this judgement on the world.

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for but NOT seen

Therefore it’s His choice weather He intervenes in any particular case to show His glory. It’s His call. But we should have faith always in Him healing us either now, temporarily (remember everything on earth dies, so in that sense there is never full physical healing on earth, as ageing and death in a sense is a sickness in and of itself after all, illness comes about most often from ageing, after is the breakdown of what are once perfectly functioning cells that are no longer able to function properly – it’s all part of the fall) or – when we receive our new bodies – either way – those who love God and love truth – will be healed period.

When asking the question: why doesn’t God always heal? We must never forget – though Jesus healed everyone he met instantly indicating this is often how God works, he himself had to wait till after death to be physically healed – so both timings of healing are clearly in operation.

Always pray for healing and expect to be healed – either now or later. Never lose faith in God to fulfil His promise that He wishes to heal ALL men – and will heal ALL men that love Him.

Divorce & Remarriage: Is Marriage after Divorce Adultery?

“Hi, my question is regarding re-marriage – is divorce and remarriage adultery? I am engaged to a man that has been married once before, and now divorced.  During the marriage, both parties did things that could be considered unfaithful to one another.  Although neither person knew what the other had done. The marriage did not necessarily end due to the unfaithful acts. My questions are: 1) since my fiance committed an act of unfaithfulness towards his former wife, is he then always considered an adulterer, even if he has repented of his sin?  2) Is he allowed to be remarried and have it be ok in the eyes of God?  3) IF I marry him, will I then be committing sin and be considered an adulterer?  Thank you so much.”
Hi there,
On the question of is divorce and remarriage adultery? From my reading the Bible / Jesus is quite unambiguous as far as I can see about what is what – but he is also clear that forgiveness knows no bounds if it is sought earnestly.
The problem with this issue and others like it is that people tend to seek council of men who will say what they want to hear / fits with their circumstances/lifestyle – rather than what God says – and we all do it – Ive done it. Jesus didn’t say to the woman at the well – go back and marry all your ex-husbands – he said go and sin no more – ie move forward. We are all adulterers in terms of being unfaithful to God so I would seek God’s/Jesus council on this in the Bible so the sin of adultery within marriage is no better or worse than our sins against God generally. Question is – having done it what are we going to do about it?
Personally I would be cautious to marry a person whom I knew in advance had done this – not from a forgiveness point of view but from a behavioural point of view. Having said that these situations can be far from cut and dry and sometimes people are driven to it and regret it  – others just see it as an option if things aren’t going well. But that’s would be your call .
Update: 
Apologies – I was rushing didn’t really answer the question directly – as I think you need to really ask God yourself with an open heart – to any answer He may give – not necessarily the one we want to hear – which is not easy.

But I do feel we need to call a spade a spade – just as Jesus did – in other words God doesn’t want anyone to divorce – ever – no matter what the circumstances – that seems crystal clear and Jesus even goes as far as to say Moses giving a divorce certificate was not Gods way but because of hardened hearts it was the only option – and I think nothing has changed today, people have not become more ‘godly’.

But Jesus having spelled out in black and white terms what divorce amounts to in God’s eyes – always goes on to offer a way forward – sin of adultery within marriage is no worse than our sins against God generally. Question is – having done it what are we going to do about it – are we not going to call it out for what it is going to do it again?

So my summary of this issue (my humble opinion – please read the Bible yourself);

If it has happened and there is no going back – and we are to enter into another marriage.. we definitely can’t go into it the same way as we did before – the way the liberal churches teach it (since 70% their tithing congregation are likely divorced and most would leave) that divorce is an option if things don’t turn out the way we want.

It’s not what we can get out of it – it’s what we can give – how we can become the right person – not finding the right person for us. No one is ‘compatible’ – we are all self-serving – it’s about becoming compatible.

So my opinion would be yes – according to Jesus one is an adulterer – but from the Bible it’s clear God is always willing to wipe the slate clean. And never forget as I mentioned before – we are ALL adulterers in God’s eyes.

This is a harsh teaching from Jesus but I think the whole point of marriage is commitment – and there is no real commitment if we feel there is always an option to bail out.

How to Stop Photos from Opening on When Plugging In iPhone

It can be super annoying that every time you plug an iPhone into an iMac to charge it, the iPhotos or photos application opens up – and takes a month of Sundays to do so before I can get on with my work when all I want to do is charge my phone! So… what can we do to stop this? How do you stop photos from opening on when plugging In iPhone? I wasn’t sure myself until I did a bit of research – and here’s what I found.

The method needed to stop the Photos application from opening when you plug your iPhone into your iMac or MacBook for charging only is to use the following simple steps;

  1. Plug in your mobile phone (iPhone) into your iMac or MacBook Pro and wait for the Photos application program to automatically open up. If it does not – open up Photos from your program menu (scroll to the bottom or side of the screen and hover to see your app menu or open your Mac icon on desktop – goto Applications and open Photos program from there).
  2. Click just under where it says ‘Import’ at the top left of the window where your iPhone should appear (as it’s plugged in).
  3. Last – simply uncheck the check box top most left (above where your iPhone appears) next to where it says; ‘Open Photos’. That’s it – a lifetime of unnecessary annoyance has come to an end! OK maybe I exaggerated that a bit:)

For a graphic view of what i just described above – see the screenshot  took below and note a) your iPhone appears when you plug it into your Apple iMac/Mac Book and b) where the little elusive check box is that you need to un-check. Happy charging!

Here’s how to stop that pesky program application Photos from opening every single time you plugin your mobile iPhone to charge! See the blue checkbox top left… uncheck that and you are good to go!
