Will sin block your healing from God? Do so-called Faith-Healers sin when they claim to have healing power? Do the Faith-Healers are Healers sin when they say God has ordained them to render His healing power?
Will you have Faith and wait on the
Lord for your healing? The Word says healing may come now or later. Thus, later

CHRISTIANITY: FALSE TEACHING, FALSE DOCTRINES
THE MIRACLE OF HEALING
PART 14: A PRAYER OF THANKS
the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
David is noted as the writer of this
Psalm. Most Bible readers believe David wrote this Psalm when he dedicated Araunah's threshing floor.
This was after God stopped the great plague he had used to
discipline him, (See 2 Samuel 24:18-25 also see 1-25).
In the last division of 2 Samuel David takes a census.
2 Samuel 24:1. "And again the
anger of the Lord was kindled against
What caused David to sin? See 1 Chronicles 21:1 and 1-30 also verse 20.
"And Satan stood up against
The Bible text says that Satan
provoked David to take a census. However, Satan only tempted David with the idea. But David decided to act
on the temptation. Ever since the
2 Samuel 24:1-3.
A census was commanded in Numbers
1:2, 26:2. In this instance the census was used to prepare an army for conquering the Promised Land.
However the land was now at peace, so there was no need to
enlist troops. David as he glorified in the size of his army and nation
committed the sins of pride and ambition. He thus put his
faith in the size of the army rather than God.
David submits to judgment:
24:10. "And David's heart smote
him after that he numbered the people. And David said unto the Lord, I have sinned greatly in that I have
done: and now, I beseech thee, O Lord, take away the Iniquity
of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly:
Here we see God noting that the
leader of the nation and the whole nation are guilty of sin. Thus God dealth with the whole nation through
David who exemplified the national sin of pride.
2 Samuel 24:18. "And Gad came
that day to David, and said unto him Go up, rear an altar unto the Lord in the threshing floor of Araunah
Many theologians believe that this
threshing floor is the location where Abraham nearly sacrificed his son Isaac (Genesis 22:1-18).
After David's death, Solomon built the
2 Samuel 24:25. "And David built
there an altar unto the Lord, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the Lord was entreated
for the land, and the plague was stayed from
Psalm 30:2. "O Lord my God, I
cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me."
Lord and God often have different
meanings as noted by the Hebrew writers. Lord in this instance is from Jehovah and means the
self-existent one. This was the Jewish national name for God.
The second is from Elohiym who rules. These two words combined mean that the
supreme uncreated and eternal being is the ruler over all.
Also the serious illness referred to
in verses 2 and 3 may refer to an illness David experienced or the plague itself. To heal also does not
always refer to disease, but frequently means to relive from a
form of distress.
30:5. "For his anger endureth
but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."
The discomfort of God's anger is
momentary. Meanwhile, the good effects go on for a long time. The anger of God can cause you to turn from
sin and repent.
30:6-7. "And in my prosperity
said, I shall never be moved."
30:7. "Lord, by thy favour thou
hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled."
Success and prosperity had filled
David with pride and he felt he was very powerful. However, he knew that all of his riches and power came
from God, but he did not give God all the praise and glory.
Often success can cause people to become self-secure and independent of God.
Depend on God and be faithful and you want be shaken by the loss of material
possessions of the world.
