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.

How Can A Christian Cope With Having Cancer?

Q: How Can A Christian Cope With Having Cancer?

It’s a scary disease – and something that I have not yet had to face or cope with (yet I am told we all actually have cancer cells in us – it’s just a case of wether the body is removing these damaged cells effectively or not) but we know the world, and all creation including our genes and bodies are fallen, and accordingly, bad things come upon those that love god and those that don’t – and we we read this in the Bible.

However – God also many times intervenes at various times of His choosing to heal and display His power and glory – and not only that – Jesus ALWAYS healed that came to him when he walked the earth.

But how can I cope as a Christian with this terrible prognosis? I myself am not sure but I know a man and woman that may be able to help you get through cancer. I hope these two videos give you inspiration to put your trust totally in God your creator who knows suffering Himself whilst on earth.

How Can I Sleep Better?

Q: How Can I Sleep Better?

Well most of us these days are on the lifestyle equivalent of ‘speed’ when it comes to the way we treat our bodies when it comes to creating the right conditions for good sleep – by not switching of either our devices or our bodies until two minutes before we attempt to go to sleep.

Advice and help with insomnia – switch off your devices and stop working in tune with nature

The following video restates what we all know instinctively but have all but forgotten – namely that we are designed to sleep in the dark and work when it’s light!.. but restate this we must as most of us never switch off our devices and lives until late at night and wonder why we lay awake all night or when we do sleep its not deep – refreshing sleep. I’ll let the maker of the following video – a Christian who is a health expert explain better that I can.

The Bible has an interesting verse on how to get good sleep – it says; a workman’s sleep is peaceful. It’s worth looking at why physical activity leads to good sleep.

How to Face The Future When Your Husband or Wife Dies

Q: How to Face The Future When Your Husband or Wife Dies?

Here is a little video I found that may help you if you are looking for help or advice on how to face life when your husband or wife dies and leaves you on your own alone. This can be extremely daunting for anyone – especially if you have little or no family and especially you are old – something that very few people even consider will ever happen to them – but it can happen to any of us. Watch this short section of this video and I hope it blesses you and gives you the strength to carry on after bereavement.

Lonely – get a dog – no it’s not a silly idea!

One amazing piece of advice on how to cope with bereavement, that may sound a little daft – is to get yourself a pet – especially a dog? Why? Because one thing losing a loved one results in is depression – and there is no greater enemy of depression than having to get out and do something – ie walk the dog. Not only that – you will undoubtedly end up speaking to people as everyone loves animals. Best piece of advice I’ve heard for those suffering loneliness either through death of a loved on or other reasons.

The Problem of Pain

Why is Pain, Evil & Suffering in The World?

“Pain is gods megaphone to rouse a deaf dead world” – C.S.LEWIS

Trust that God’s ultimate purpose for your life is good. Romans 8:28, NIV. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”

Our Recommended AMAZING book: The Problem of Pain by C.S Lewis at AMAZON >>

Problems are confirmation that we are being prepared for heaven. II Thessalonians 1:5, TLB.
“This is only one example of the fair, just way God does things, for He is using your sufferings to make you ready for His Kingdom.”

“For our light affliction which is but for a moment, works in us us a far greater eternal glory” II Corinthians

Well unfortunately it seems that God always loves to show up when things are getting good. The fact is he pulled me out of the way because the train would have made a pancake out of me. That’s how our God is. Constantly and patiently saving us (me) from ourselves. What a Guy!

Come on, tell me something useful!

What we’ve got to do is take note of another little gem The Bible offers. “Take care of today as it has enough problems of its own, and tommorrow will take care of itself” – An old cliche? well no, -get on with the things you’re given (this is your present calling) and when he thinks your ready (translated: when you’re not dangerous to yourself and everybody else) He’ll call you! Gods’ got a loud voice.

History of STI’s & STD Viruses

When people think of sex related diseases they tend to think of AIDS (immune deficiency syndrome) but there is in fact nothing new about people getting ill after having sex. Syphilis was a scourge of death, chronic illness and disfigurement, diseased babies and other problems.

The fist syphilis epidemic began in Europe in 1494 which some time later caused such havoc that the French army was disbanded. Many people would trace sex illnesses way back to biblical times and The bible does in fact hint to various illnesses related to sin in relation to sex outside marriage being one way to more likely become ill through sexual behaviour.

In the Second World War there was a poster of Hitler, Mussolini and a prostitute all arm in arm sporting the caption “VD is the worst of the three”!!! At the start of the war syphilis treatment was still relatively ineffective and new.

In 1658 it was recognised that the terrible plague was linked to sex. It remained a serious public health threat and major cause of death amongst the people until the amazing discovery of penicillin by Sir Alexander Fleming some time around 1930. It’s first use was in combatting syphilis infection in 1942.

Unfortunately though – regardless of the wonders of penicillin we still have today the largest syphilis epidemic this world has ever seen. This is why it’s so important to take protective measure – lik not having sex at all before marriage. And if you cannot wait or find yourself in a no going back situation (very unlikely that any situation is beyond going back) then protect yourself and partner. However it would be best not to get into that situation in the first place!
