The world needs Healing. However the world and its people cannot receive Healing when they don't know God.
There was once a man and many people that faced or had endured a great crisis. They all talked about God.
Did this man talk and come to know
God yesterday, today or will he know Him tomorrow? God will pave a rough road
and make the crooked places straight when you know Him. Claiming to know God is
a faithless exercise in diversion. Peace comes to those who know.
Peace and Love,

CHRISTIANITY: FALSE TEACHING, FALSE DOCTRINE
THE MIRACLE OF HEALING
PART 43: JESUS THE HEALER
the name of Jehovah God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
Is the physical healing of the body
taken for granted? For example when a small cut or bruise heals is this the
will of God? God is the Creator, and He heals all of humankind. Thus, believers
and non-believers receive God's healing. However, all manners of physical
ailments are not always healed. Thus, healing can be viewed in a twofold sense.
There is Physical healing and Spiritual healing. What comes first?
Our faith promotes spiritual healing.
Thus, faith can help us receive healing. Also lack of faith hinders healing, but
healing does not depend on faith. Therefore, healing depends on the healer.
Jesus as the Son of God who walked the earth was/is the greatest healer.
Jesus means Yahweh, Jehovah is
salvation. The four Gospels are primarily theological writings which set forth
the central features of the message of salvation, the crucifixion,
resurrection, glorification and second coming. Matthew and Luke are the two
Gospels that record the birth of Jesus and provide us with a list of Jesus'
Matthew traces the genealogy of Jesus
through the royal line of David back to Abraham. Matthew thus shows that the
Messiah prophesied in the Old Testament was truly a Jew and a son of David.
(Matthew 1: 1-17).
However Luke in his genealogy of
Jesus (Luke -38) extends
all the way back to Adam, indicating Jesus' kinship to all of humanity. Jesus
declared that true religion consisted less of insincere tithing and alms giving
than in the love of one's neighbor (that includes your enemy) and humble,
undivided devotion to God.
As Jesus began his Ministry it became
evident that healing belongs to every believer. It is also noted that healing
is in regard to God's will. Thus Jesus healed through the power of God the
In Matthew 12:15-21 Jesus teaches us
a great lesson about healing. It is for sure that the primary purpose for our
review and study of Healing as noted in the Bible is because of the false
teaching. Thus, the Ministry of Jesus is a grand model for our review.
Matthew 12: 15-16. "But when
Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed
him, and he healed them all."
"And charged them that they should not make him known."
As we look at the previous mentioned
passage of scripture, we also must note verse 14. Here we see the Pharisees
plotting to kill Jesus. Jesus had exposed them and they were angry. Jesus had
revealed that they were more loyal to their religious system than to God.
For the record the FreedomJournal
notes that we have come to expose the wicked. In this review our expressed
purpose is to expose the ungodly faith-healers. We are no way comparing our
mission to the Divine mission of Jesus. However, we have come to witness for
God and uphold the teachings of our Savior as noted in the Holy Bible.
So Jesus realizing (being all
knowing) the plots of His enemies withdrew, however the people followed Him and
he healed all that needed healing. Our second great lesson is revealed in verse
16. Jesus did not want the people he healed to tell about this miracle. Jesus
was on an expressed mission from the father therefore He did not want to create
any confusion that would hamper His teaching Ministry.
As a further word on the false
teachers and faith-healers of today there is no indication anywhere in scripture
where Jesus charged for healing the sick. Also Jesus was concerned about people
coming to Him (as a healer) for the wrong reasons. However, the so-called
faith-healers of today advertise their healing ministries through every source
of media. They also accept contributions and often note that the more you
contribute the more healing you will receive.
"That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias that prophet
The writer Matthew often quoted Old
Testament scripture to show that Jesus was indeed the Messiah. Hence we see
another great lesson that also refutes the faith-healers interest in money and
the great priority placed on money in the church today. The prophecy noted in
Isaiah 42: 1-7 reveals that the Messiah would not be a materialistic high
profile king the Jews expected. Thus those that come to flaunt wealth in the
church are not Christ-like. From our evaluation they are justly called Devils
and the ungodly.
