Faith is the trust in God in all
manners of trouble and worry has no place. There was once a Foolhardy man who
placed love, trust and faith in man in the flesh and material substances. He thus
denied the source of all things Created. However there was/is an upright man
who placed all of his cares, troubles, love and faith in Almighty God. He paved
the way for ultimate healing that is revealed in eternal life.
Peace and Love,

CHRISTIANITY: FALSE TEACHING, FALSE DOCTRINE
THE MIRACLE OF HEALING
PART 44: GOD'S WILL: FAITH IN
the name of Jehovah God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
Does God will all to be healed? Yes
and No. It depends on what you mean by healing. Meanwhile, can your faith cause
God to heal you? Does faith then cause God to save you? Therefore, is salvation
the greatest result of the healing process?
Romans 10: 9-13.
10: 9. "That if thou shalt
confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that
God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
The free gift of salvation is readily
available to all that confess with their mouth and heart that Jesus Christ is
the risen Savior. Therefore, it is not a complicated process. Paul does not say
that this belief and confession alone will bring salvation or save you.
The heart is the mind. Thus when the
belief in Jesus Christ is truly placed on our heart you will become a changed
person. Therefore you will walk in the spirit guided y the Holy Ghost. Your
actions will be of love and service and you will witness for God.
Ephesians 2:8. “For by grace
are ye saved through faith; and had not of yourselves: it is the gift of
Some Christians attempt to or feel
obligated to try to work their way to God. However our salvation and even our
faith are gifts. While no matter of work or service can earn, this gift God's
intention is that our salvation will result in service.
Furthermore there are two prominent
words in this passage. These distinct words represent the different parties.
Grace indicates the presence of God. Faith represents the person being saved.
Grace as the gift of God includes the entire plan of salvation. Faith as
carried out by man includes all the things a man must do to prove his faith.
Therefore, in your salvation is your healing.
Matthew 8: 17. "That it might be
fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our
infirmities, and bare our sickness."
Matthew shows that Jesus was indeed
the High Priest. In Matthew 17: 14-17 we see several of the great healing
miracles of Jesus. He heals by a single touch, He heals by uttering a single
word. He also removes evil spirits form those possessed with devils. Jesus has
power and authority over all of the evil and sickness of the world. These
trials are the results of living in a sin sick world.
But Jesus will come in the future to
cleanse the earth of all manner of evil and sickness. This is the prophecy
noted by Elijah in the Old Testament, and found in the Book of Isaiah.
Isaiah 53: 4-6. "Surely he hath
borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God and afflicted."
It was difficult for the people of
the Old Testament to believe or understand the role and mission of Jesus
Christ. Here Isaiah inspired by Almighty God reveals that Jesus would bear the
burden of our grief, sorrows and sins. However in the last sentence of this
passage the unbelievers thought that the suffering of Jesus was a chastisement
Meanwhile in the next verse (53: 5)
Isaiah corrects this wrong thinking.
53:5. "But he was wounded for
our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities."
He died not because of His
transgressions, because he had none. We were the reason. Thus through His
suffering our sins are forgiven.
53: 6. “All we like sheep have
gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the lord hath laid on
him the iniquity of us all."
The writer Isaiah reveals that the
people have strayed like wandering, lost sheep. However, He will send the
Messiah to bring them back to the fold. We also note that actions of the
Apostles that left Jesus before they realized He had risen from the dead. (John
21: 3.). The phrase "hath laid on him" describes a situation when the
entire group involved in a task leave but one. The remaining persons are then
compelled to perform the task alone.
Meanwhile, we have seen the glory of
the Messiah through the written word of God. The people of the Old Testament
did not have this knowledge. Thus we have seen and felt the healing hand of our
Lord and have been blessed. But faith does not effect healing now. Healing is
the will of God.
