There are so many sick and hurting Believers. How and Why is this possible?
It tickles me to realize how we pick and choose what to believe. “You Must Be Born Again.” (John 3:3-7; 1 Peter 1:23) We have whole denominations built on these Words. We claim that if people do not use the Words, Born Again, they are not believers.
The Truth is, we must Confess and Believe Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord. That is what causes us to be Born Again, not declaring the Words.
Folks, Catholics recite the same Apostles creed as the rest of us. Have they added to the Word? Unfortunately yes, does it cancel out their Salvation? NO!
Believe and Confess the only requirement for Salvation. Praying to Saints or Mary? Nope, shouldn’t happen, but the Lord is bigger than we are.
I bring this up because as believers we fail to believe all the Words of the Lord. I see a weak and sickly church. A Church of unbelieving believers. Why do we cling to being born again but not to, John 14:11-14.
“Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”
Will Jesus heal?
‘And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.’ Matthew 4:24
‘But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;’ Matthew 12:15
‘And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.’ Mark 6:56
‘Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.’ Luke 4:40
‘And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; Luke 6:17
‘And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.’ Luke 6:19
Here are 6 Scriptures that tell us He heals all that are in need. So why are so many sick?
Our Faith is lacking: We don’t know, speak, sing, and live the word. We need to walk with and in the Spirit. Memorize, Meditate, Communicate the Word and Will of the Lord. Until we become more like Him, our Faith and the health of ourselves and those we love will suffer.
Renew your minds, fill them with the Truth of God’s Word.
