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.

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.
