Concerning Gods will In Healing- It is just as much God’s will to heal the body as it is to heal the soul. His promises are each a revelation of what God is eager to do for us. Until we know what Gods will is, there is nothing to base our faith on.
Rom. 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world, but be transformed to the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what Gods will is-His good, pleasing and perfect will.
Rom.10:17 Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God
The right mental attitude or renewed mind makes steadfast faith possible to all.
The word is the seed – Unless a person is sure it is the will of God to be healed he is looking to reap a harvest where there is no seed planted.
For each sick person to know it is Gods will to heal him is the “seed” which is to be planted until it is known and received and trusted.
Proverbs 4:20-22 My son, my daughter, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight; keep them within your heart, for they are life to those who find them and health to a man or woman’s whole body
Matt: 6:9- 10 Lords Prayer –Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven
Jesus say’s you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Freedom from sickness comes from knowing the truth. God does nothing without His Word.

Healing in the Atonement – one of the seven redemptive names -Jehovah-Rapha “I am the Lord who heals you”
(It is the Gospel which the Holy Spirit says, is the power of God unto salvation, in all its phases, both physical and spiritual. And the entire gospel is for every creature and for all nations.)
Leviticus 14:18 The rest of the oil in his palm the priest shall put on the head of the one to be cleansed and make atonement for him before the Lord.

Parable of the Sower – Matt:13 Let the word take root

Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him. (and for us the believers today)
John 14:11-12 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.

Amen!!!!
READ ACTS 5:12-16 ( the works of the Holy Spirit) If this was only for Pentecost why then 30 years later in the last chapter of Acts Paul performs miracles and heals all the sick on the island of Malta.
1. If sickness as some think, is the will of God for His faithful children, then it is a sin for them even to desire to be well, to say nothing of spending thousands of dollars to defeat His purpose
2. If sickness is the will of God then every physician is a law breaker, every trained nurse is defying the Almighty, every hospital I a house of rebellion and we should close every one.
3. If the modern theology of those who teach that God wants some of His worshipers to remain sick for His Glory is true then Jesus, during His earthly ministry, never hesitated to rob the Father of all the glory He could by healing all who came to Him.
4. The Holy Spirit, likewise, robbed Jesus of all the glory He could by healing all the sick in the streets of Jerusalem. And Paul, too, robbed God of all the glory he could by healing all on the island of Malta
