Healing yes, but what about staying healthy?

November 5, 2017

 

Radically (not ridiculously)

believing in healing! 

I am very keen for healing and I become very upset when believers have only hope about receiving their healing, thinking they have this great faith in God (blind faith) or that God has a wonderful purpose/plan for them when they are sick, handicapped, dying of cancer or that God is using (provoking) sickness, disease and accidents to teach them something they actually never learn, because stats are showing, that not very many have learned something or found out, what God wanted them to see/learn through their sickness or problem.

 

Actually, to be honest with you, most of them will say, that they learned something like:

. God does not heal everybody!

. God sometimes heals and sometime not!

. God will heal only in His good timing, when we don`t know!

. Why God is not healing today has to do with God wanting to work mostly trough doctors today.

   

Sorry, but this is not what I see in Scripture at all and especially now under a New Covenant with better promises and the promises are yes and amen! 

 

"But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises."

Hebrews 8:6

 

"For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us."

2 Corinthians 1:20 

  

So, to say that I am very much for healing and effective results even if sometimes I miss it myself.

And I will NEVER doubt God for the health for His children, even if sometimes things don`t work as far as healing and miracles are concerned. 

 

 

But...
...I must say, that we miss a very big chunk about the topic of healing, which is this - NOT getting sick or PREVENTHING freak accidents, causing us to be in a wheelchair for the rest of our life. Prevention or how to stay healthy, is rarely taught in church or a topic in cell groups.

 

 

Look...

...we all know, that the Old Covenant is full of “does and don'ts” (laws) but did you know that many of them have the purpose of preventing to become sick, to die young and to prevent an accident to happen*

God wants us to be/stay healthy, to die in a good old age and use our common sense like not using our smart phone as we drive. 

Really, do we teach in our churches or home groups about how to use our brain wisely as to prevent bad stuff to happen and how to stay healthy instead of fixing things all the time through prayer cards, laying of hands for healing and miracles? Don`t mistunderstand me - prayer cards (praying for the sick), being willing to heal the sick, is biblical and to teach believers how to minister healing is fantastic, but what about prevention and learn how not to become sick?  

 

 

Did you ever ask yourself...

...why God would want His children healthy?

Or let me put it this way - why would a good doctor want you healed and stay healthy?

Well, it is obvious, because the good doctor wants you to be ready and healthy to go to work or do what you are supposed to do for the society.   

Then my question to you is - do we have work to do as Christians?

Yes, we have lots of work to do, because Jesus commanded us all:

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father."

John 14:12 

 

and

 

“And He said to them, ‘Go into  all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not  believe will be condemned.

And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will  speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they  will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.’ Christ Ascends to God’s Right Hand.

So then, after the Lord had spoken to  them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.

And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and

confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.“ 

Mark 16:15:20.

 

 

Conclusion!

Think about this, we can be a blessing to God instead of a lovely burden all the time with our problems.

Then, why not starting right now to be a blessing to God with some solid teaching about how to stay healthy and how to prevent accidents to happen with the combination of teaching about healing and how to minister it effectively and properly. 

 

* I am not talking about others causing accidents because of their stupidities, I am talking about you and you only.

  Also I am not talking about natural disasters or about things which break or are defect, causing an accident,

  which is another kind of topic. Also I am not talking about a child who is born with a handicap or disease, or about  

 some diseases, which came out of nowhere, like Parkinson disease and other ones like that. God still loves you,

 even if you have problems, are sick or with handicap.
