Why God doesn’t always heal the sick

Posted by in Prayer | 3 comments

There are many reasons why God doesn’t always heal the sick. Here are a few.

  1. Faith – without faith, God doesn’t answer prayer.
  2. Unconfessed Sin – Sins can separate us from God. (Isaiah 59:2)
  3. Lack of Desire – some sick people don’t want to be healed. They identify with their illness.
  4. Lack of Prayer –   “God does nothing except in response to believing prayer” John Wesley.
  5. Demonic Influences Not Addressed – the cause of the demonic affliction has not been addressed.
  6. Divine Providence – For many reasons, God may not heal in spite of prayer.
  7. A Better Thing – God loves to heal us. However, there may be something better that needs to be attained on the other side of the weakness that comes from sickness. “You were well aware that the reason I ended up preaching to you was that I was physically broken, and so, prevented from continuing my journey, I was forced to stop with you. That is how I came to preach to you.” Gal. 4:13 MSG

  3. Hi there this is a message I shared to the churches on healing , Visit my site is http://www.reganbothma.com I video people getting healed by Jesus. He is Lord and His will is always to heal , God always wants us healed !!

    It’s always Gods will to heal, unbelief is the only hindrance to healing, please read on as I will explain .

    Wherever Jesus went, he confirmed his Divine mission by miracles
    His ministry divides into three sections: teaching, preaching, and healing.
    • Mathew 4:23 Jesus Ministers to Great Crowds And he went throughout all
    Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom
    and healing v ry dis as and v ry affliction among the people.
    • The Bible clearly states that “Jesus healed every Disease and every affliction”

    The Good News says we have Absolute Victory in Jesus!!
    Any pain, sickness or disease anytime, anywhere can be overcome
    by Faith in Jesus.
    • In Acts the Apostles also healed them all.
    • This is what we can expect as believers in Christ
    • In the area of healing Jesus used absolute words
    • Words like – every, all, anything, whoever, whatever
    • These are absolute words
    • We as Christians tend to use words like
    • “what if “ “ maybe” “ if it be they will”
    Lets look at the Absolute words used in scripture
    • Mathew 9:35
    Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their
    synagogues, proclaiming the Good News of the kingdom and healing v ry
    disease and v ry sickness.
    • Mathew 12:15 But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew from there. And great
    multitudes followed Him, and H h al d th m all.
    • Mark 11:23 — For assuredly, I say to you, who v r says to this mountain, ‘Be
    removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes
    that those things he says will be done, he will have what v r he says.
    • Mark 16:17-18 – And these signs will follow them that believe; In my name will
    they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; [18] They
    will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it willl not hurt them;
    they will lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
    • These are absolutes words from Scripture ( many more)
    • The Good News message is we have Absolute Victory!

    Absolute meaning complete, total, out right and entire Victory !!
    • Jesus said on the Cross “its finished”
    • that really means its finished
    • Jesus then even took it further and said we would do greater things
    • So there are no hindrances and conditions to healing
    • The only hindrance to healing is if you believe there are hindrances.
    • Yes its that simple!
    • What Jesus has provided on the cross was a perfect and complete work
    This is what Jesus set for us to follow
    if you believe, the signs and wonders will follow you.
    • We are not waiting for God to move
    • Jesus has already moved on the Cross 2000 years ago.
    • We are not waiting for a calling or an instruction
    Jesus said in His word “GO into all the world Preach the Gospel heal the sick.
    • Mathew 10:7 As you O , proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has
    come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive
    out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.
    Jesus has given us a commission to GO , we don’t have to wait anymore
    Jesus has also given us the Holy Spirit
    Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you
    We have been given Power Dominion and Authority
    Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you pow r to tread on serpents and scorpions, and
    ov r all th pow r of th n my: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
    You have ALL POWER , NOTHING shall harm you
    Gen 1:28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill
    the earth and subdu it, and hav dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds
    of the heavens and ov r v ry living cr atur that moves on the earth.
    SICKNESS is a living creature
    ( if we look at cancer for example) under microscope
    So we have dominion over it all
    Lets look at what happens when we are saved

    Ephesians 2:8
    By Grace you have been saved through Faith, not of yourselves lest anyone should
    boast it’s a gift of God.
    • The Greek word for saved is SOZO
    • It means to be SAVED, HEALED AND DELIVERED!!
    • It means to be made whole, complete and perfect
    • You can’t separate them from salvation it’s a package deal.
    • So if you are saved you are also healed
    I want to ask you do we have anything to do with being saved ?
    [ pause]
    No not at all, nothing I coiuld do can save me , I cant earn my salvation
    I only believe in Jesus
    The only requirement is belief
    So is there anything you can do to get your healing
    [ pause]
    No There is nothing I can do in and of myself effort to be healed
    Jesus provided it
    I just believe in Jesus
    So its by Gods Grace that you are saved
    So its by Gods Grace that you are healed
    Are you seeing this Gospel is so simple guys
    Gods Grace supplied it already FAITH accesses whats provided
    So Healing is like getting saved we don’t doubt our salvation
    So we shouldn’t doubt our healing.
    So what you should do is ,say I am saved so I am also healed and now I just BELIEVE
    it and thank Jesus
    ALL this Gospel requires is BELIEF in JESUS.
    1 Tim 2 :3-4
    For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, who desires all men to
    be sav d and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
    This scripture show us its Gods will for Salvation

    So if its Gods will for salvation
    Its also Gods will for Healing ,
    God desires all men to be sav d
    So this means God desires us to be saved healed and delivered
    • I continually emphasize this guys
    • Because people have tendancy to go back to their works
    • When I say Works here I am referring to dead works
    • Dead works – is any attempt to find favour, earn acceptance or be made
    righteous before God by one’s own effort, ability or willpower
    • The focus is not on your performance at all
    • The Focus is on Jesus and His performance on the cross
    • You cant save yourself and you cant heal yourself by your own efforts
    I would say this is the biggest mistake I see in the church at the moment
    I myself years ago thought I had to fast longer , I thought I had to pray longer but it s all
    dead works its not gonna get you closer to God
    Let me give you a graphical illustration
    If I am an orange, and I took a orange marker and painted myself orange would that
    make me more of an orange ?
    No not at all
    I am already an orange and I am already orange in colour ?
    Painting myself orange is pointless.
    That’s the same as dead works
    You cant do things to make you something you already are
    Religion puts the emphasis on oing right.
    In contrast, Jesus and the apostles
    put the emphasis on believing right, because when we believe right
    we will naturally do right as a consequence
    We are not trying to persuade God to use us
    God is already fully persuaded about us !!

    We cant do anything in and of ourselves to please God
    He is already pleased with us
    We cant try climb a ladder of Holiness before God uses us ?
    There are no more ladders to climb no more hoops to jump through.
    You have already arrived at your destination.
    You already have everything in you for life and Godliness
    You just have to believe Jesus !
    Here is a scripture that relates to dead works Christianity
    Galatians 3:5
    So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works
    of the law, or by your believing what you heard?
    Galatians 3:1
    You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ
    was clearly portrayed as crucified.
    I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of
    the law, or by believing what you heard?
    Are you so foolish? After beginning by means
    of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh?
    experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain?

    So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works
    of the law, or by your believing what you heard?
    So also Abraham “believed God, and
    it was credited to him as righteousness.”
    • He gave us the Holy Spirit to work Miracles
    • The Good News doesn’t have conditions to it
    • Otherwise it would not be that Good News would it ?
    • Good News says it free it’s a gift its yours take it !
    • You cant earn it by fleshly striving
    • The only works that we look at is Jesus and His finished “works” on the cross.
    • He finished it once and for all
    Practical ways to Administer Healing
    • When we administer healing we do it in Love
    • Gods healing confirms Gods word

    How do you address Pain and Sickness
    • We are not asking or begging God
    • Jesus has provided Healing we now take authority
    • (physical demonstration ) UP ACROSS pray
    • We treat Sickness and pain as a living creature
    • We command and take authority over it
    • We command it to leave the body
    • Speak to it and tell it to leave
    • The person matters and we love them
    • but when we pray
    • I am not concerned about the person (let me explain)
    • I am addressing the sickness a “living creature”
    • Like a dog – tell it to get out
    • Example is
    • “Pain/Cancer go in Jesus name.”
    • We taking authority over it
    • I’m speaking directly to the sickness and telling it
    • to go. ( like a dog)
    • I COMMAND.. not asking it
    • We don’t have to work ourselves up
    • it’s not emotions driven
    • We don’t need goose bumps to see a result , we simply believe
    • Sickness and disease is a SPIRIT or an INFIRMITY..
    • we must treat it like that. its from the devil and it is the devil
    • Remember the rules you make for yourself are the rules you Live by
    • It’s the principle of when I speak to it
    • it must respond
    • its like a law of Gravity it must happen..
    • it’s the same as the Law of Faith
    • Eg — as God spoke and things are created so I speak things are created

    • It’s never a method or a technique but its your confident expectation and intention
    to Heal,
    • what you believe is more important than what you say
    • Remembering Its whats inside of you. – JESUS
    • When we Heal the sick we believe they you are going to RECIEVE it now ..
    • before the manifestation of the healing .
    • ( I understand healing happens over time too but I go in believing the trump card
    every time )
    • After you prayed
    • ASK THEM
    • TEST IT …move your leg …so u want to see the result Jesus said get up and
    • As them to move it and test it
    • As a simple tip short prayers are more powerful and I am not making a rule but
    • let’s rest in Gods power not our long prayers
    • Isiaah 55:11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me
    empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent
    • Remember there are 2 TRUTHS
    • WORD OF GOD — which is the truth
    • CIRCUMSTANCES — which is a truth
    • The Word must triumph over your circumstances …
    • DONT let your circumstances triumph over the Word of God
    • We walk by Faith …. 2 Cor 5:7. for we walk by faith, not by sight
    • Never give up guys don’t stop doing it…its the people that keep doing it that see
    the results
    It’s a done deal
    we are in a place of victory
    I have not come here to make this message complex
    The Gospel is simple, and Healing is simple !
    Physical healing is a part of the Atonement of Christ, which means Jesus purchased it
    on the Cross 2000 years ago
    So it’s fact as far as God is concerned you are already healed !!
    So if there is any pain or sickness in a persons body
    it is an enemy to get out !!
