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.

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.

Why Does God Not Always Heal?

Because this world is NOT heaven – this world is ruled by the Devil and still under his dominion. In this world, when God does heal – which he often does… God does not heal for the sake of healing as we so often wish – as he will do when we are all resurrected and given perfect glorified bodies as we once had in Eden.

No – he heals in this world for another reason – to display his light in a dark world! To show that HE is still the master and is able to contravene the laws of nature! To show He is still on the throne and has our backs – even in a world handed over to the Prince of Darkness!

When God doesn’t heal – NEVER curse God. That is Satan’s main aim for you – to curse God and blaspheme the Holy Spirit! Just believe in His goodness and His ultimate plan for our ultimate healing and happiness and joy in the soon-coming renewed heaven and earth!

Confession and Confessing of Sins

Confession & Sins

First of all you don’t need a priest to confess your sins to! Why would The Bible command you to have your sins forgiven by an unholy man (The Bible tells us all are sinners and have fallen short and that no man is good of his own accord).

What Does The Bible Actually Say Regarding Confession of Sins and Misdemeanours?

open-bibleonwhiteFirst, The Bible tells us to; “call no man father” – yes is does! But is also tells us to; “confess your faults – yes faults – to one another.” How beautiful is that!? The King James Version doesn’t instruct us to tell our deepest, darkest, most horrible things we have done to people we don’t know opening up to bondage, fear and guilt and sometimes turning this against us, but best friends who also being sinners will understand as they will also confess to us. We are to confess our problems and FAULTS to one another. Now that is very doable and without excuse (providing we have some trustworthy Christian friends) and means we can pray for one another regarding the root issues that cause the sins that we ask our heavenly Father to forgive the individual sins we are so ashamed about.

Why Confess our Faults & Sins to One Another?

Confessing our sins is integral to being a Christian. This I would guess is beneficial both for the confessor and possibly the person hearing the confession who will be used in God’s gracious healing process. The person confessing is able to share the burden of guilt that naturally occurs when you do something wrong, and meanwhile the listener is able to share in the forgiveness process with God by caring and being there to listen.
