Almighty God will bless those that honor Him. However many people today worship man and things (Preachers and Money) therefore God is a secondary consideration. Get your house in order God has the power to render salvation not man. If you don't realize this fact then you are a non-believer.

CHRISTIANITY: FALSE TEACHING, FALSE DOCTRINES
THE MIRACLE OF HEALING
PART 9: THE HEALING OF HEZEKIAH
In the name of God,
Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
The Bible records that Hezekiah had a
close relationship with God. He was king of
Hezekiah as a good king was aware of
Gods acts in the past and his interest in the present. He called for civil and
religious reforms. He was also a great man of prayer. The Book of Proverbs
reveals that Hezekiah was a patron of several chapters (Proverbs 25:1).
2 Kings 20:1 also see verses 5 and
1-11. "In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the Prophet Isaiah
the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, get thine
house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live."
Being gravely ill Hezekiah turned to
God in prayer. Revealing to God that he had walked in truth with a perfect
heart he relied on scripture to invoke favor from God.
20:5. 'Turn again and tell Hezekiah
the captain of my people, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I
have heard thy prayers, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the
third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the Lord."
In many cases God spoke directly to
his servants, however in most instances he spoke through his prophets. (See
Hebrews 1:1). As a good king Hezekiah holds the distinction as the only
faithful king over a 100-year period of
20:19. Although Hezekiah had been a
faithful king he showed human weaknesses. The deliverance of Hezekiah from
sickness and his prosperity caused him to be puffed up and filled with pride.
Rather than give God the credit for all of his blessings he tried to impress
the Babylonians with his wealth. God does not bless us to use his blessings to
impress others. Our greatest blessings are found in our testimony that God has
worked wonders in our lives.
