Having been in the healing ministry for nearly 29 years now, I’ve heard every imaginable excuse why people can’t be healed.  Sometimes I think people really DON’T want to be healed, but just say they do.  Maybe they like the sympathy and attention they get.  But not me, I like being healed and healthy.  That’s not to say I haven’t had attacks down through the years, but like it is written in Luke 6:17-19, HE HEALED THEM ALL.  EVERY ONE OF THEM.

 17  And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;

 18  And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.

 19  And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

            Maybe you think you’re too sick to be healed, or that healing doesn’t apply today, or that healing doesn’t apply to you personally, that you’re some kind of exceptional case.  Let me give you some help here:  you’re nobody special that God should change His rules for you!

Healing doesn’t come because you’re worthy or that you’re so pure that you deserve healing.  Imagine the multitudes who came out to Jesus to be healed of whatever diseases they had.  Is there a possibility there were SINNERS among them?  Is there a possibility there were those who had no intentions whatsoever of repenting of their sins?  Is there a possibility there were those who were weak in faith?  Sure, but yet it says HE HEALED THEM ALL!  I have a question for you Bible scholars out there who don’t believe in healing: How many is ALL?

Lawyers have the ability to twist the truth so much that they even get murderers off scott free.  There were those same lawyers in the days Jesus was doing His earthly ministry, and they were always plotting against Him, to catch Him in His words, or to twist His works into something illegal.  And that same spirit exists today to talk people out of their healing, and let me tell you, it ISN’T the Holy Spirit; it’s a demonic, deceiving spirit.  And if you need healing and haven’t received it, it’s because you’ve been listening to those lying spirits!

You see, Jesus healed all who came to Him without exception. He never refused ANYONE for any reason.  And if you had been there, you would have been healed, because healing comes because of God’s love and compassion, and for no other reason.  Healing was initiated by the heavenly Father through Christ Jesus.  Now, Jesus said He did nothing without His Father’s will.  And in John 10:30, I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE.

Jesus was asked by the disciples to show them the Father. In John 14:6-15, it is written:

 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

 7  If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

 8  Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

 9  Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

 10  Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

 11  Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

 12  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

 13  And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

 14  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

 15  If ye love me, keep my commandments.

            What Jesus said is so plain, you’d have to be a lawyer to twist and misinterpret it.  And yet people seem to think they’re so special that they must somehow be an exception to what Jesus said.  And so no matter who prays for them, or lays hands on them, they stay sick because they are exceptional.

It isn’t because God doesn’t want them healed. It’s like this, the healing virtue of Jesus is present to heal all who are sick, but those people refuse to come to Him, and so they stay sick.  Those are strong words perhaps, but if you can come up with a better reason, I’m all ears….

Listen, those of you who need healing, it doesn’t matter how sick you are, or how long you’ve been sick.  Jesus healed the man by the Pool of Bethesda in John 5:1-9,

 1  After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

 2  Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. 

 3  In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.

 4  For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

 5  And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

 6  When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

 7  The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

 8  Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.

 9  And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

            Skipping a few verses, we pick this up in Verse 14:

 14  Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

            So, in this case Jesus said SIN was the cause of his sickness for 38 years, and Jesus told him to SIN NO MORE.  That means REPENT!

If you’ve thought you’re an exception to God’s Word, you’re in sin, and you need to repent.  Or else stay sick if you love your sickness and sympathy so much.  But if you’re smart, you’ll take God at His Word and be healed RIGHT NOW!  God has already done all He’s going to do about healing, and if you want to be healed, you need to align yourself with the Word of God and receive what He has already so graciously provided.

Healing is available to all, not because of our worthiness, but because of God’s compassion.  Many say, LORD, Heal me and I’ll serve you and give You glory.  God isn’t “let’s make a deal”.  Healing is God’s idea, He provided it, and if you’ll get yourself out of the picture, and simply come to Jesus and ask to be healed, Jesus said in John 14;13-14,

 13  And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

 14  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.


Those weren’t MY words, they were HIS, and He keeps His Word to those who come to Him.   AND HE HEALED THEM ALL!  I like that a lot!  He is rich in mercy and grace to those who come with an honest heart, seeking Him.  So you know what to do now, right?
