Why is it that the majority of Jesus' miracles He performed involved healing of the sick among them? Wouldn't it be pointless to perform those miracles and include them in the New Testament for us to read today, if it were not for today? Just my thoughts...While it is true that God does not choose to heal everyone, we cannot know the mind of God, or try to understand His choices by confining Him inside the smallness of the human capacity of logic.
God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. John 1:14,15
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8,9
Personally, I have experienced God's healing through the laying on of hands, so I have first hand knowledge and experiences in my life that healing is one of God's riches for us today. Consider this:
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10Jesus came so that we may have life and have it more abundantly. I don't know about you, but to me living abundantly has to mean first and foremost good health! When you have your health, everything else is great....but when your health fails, nothing else really seems to matter, right? Health is something that you cannot buy or trade...you can manage it by being a good steward of your body's health, because after all, it is a temple of the Holy Ghost!
I am currently studying the aspect of healing, and it seems repeatedly that two recurring factors usually go hand and hand for a healing to take place: OBEDIENCE and FAITH!
