PostSubject: Faith Healers?   Thu Sep 10, 2009 9:48 pm

Okay so, my whole life i've listened to recordings of the Great Jack Coe and I have heard him mentioned many times in sermons by my Father. I've actually seen some healings before. But, i've heard a lot of people talk about the faith healers from years ago. Shouldn't there be many more today, then there was back then???? What do you all think????

Yes, we should see healings more often than we do now. Jesus Christ gave the Christians the power to heal. This doesn't mean everyone will be but we should see miracles none-the-less we still should see them. It all comes down to faith. Everytime you read about Jesus healing he has always told them their faith has healed them. So the question is...do we have enough faith to be healed?

Yes Mam!
There should be.
Like my Favorite singer says, "Faith is a Verb"
BUT
You must indeed have the faith.
Do you have the faith to be healed?
I mean seriously think about it.
Would you put it in Gods hands to have it done?

I agree, faith is essential, but we must also remember that God usually chooses to heal in one of three ways:

1. Divine Healing. This is what we would all like to see happen. God heals people through a miracle, either instantaneously or gradually, but they are healed. I've seen it myself.

2. Medical Care. As much as the secular world would like to deny it, God uses the medical industry, doctors, and staff to save millions of lives, and improve the quality of life every single day. This is accomplished by various means, not the least of which are pharmaceutical drugs and surgical care.

3. Physical Death. Sometimes God chooses to heal His children by taking them home--not the option we like. Death can be viewed as a release from the Curse of the Fall. Using this method, God takes His children home to be with Him forever, escaping an eternal physical life separate from Him AND eternal spiritual death.

Another note: As with every teacher or preacher, test all Prophets and Faith Healers against the Word of God. If what they say does not line up with a properly understood Scriptural context, they don't need to be given any more attention.

Signs and Wonders, while usually good, do not automatically mean that said Prophet or Faith Healer is of God.

Not trying to rain on your parade, but I think that needs to be mentioned. :p

^^^ Yea I totally get what you are saying. And, I agree with you on it all. I know that not all of them are of God. I know that first hand.

I hope Faith does need for personal healings and miracles.

In Jesus healings we have found in some towns he was unable to do more miracles because of they do not have enough faith.

In the same we can see in the book of acts that Peter and John were healed the person who sits at the gate of temple, even He does not have faith.

For God everything is possible. He can change people mind however he wish, like He did to Pharoh the king of egypt.
