God's Will To Heal - page 13

The Word of God has a pounding effect on your spirit. He sent His Word and healed them, the
Bible says, and delivered them from their death and destruction. It comes into you, and you see
it, and then more comes. You don’t get established in God in life just by hearing half of a verse
one time. It comes by hearing and hearing. Let every Word be established in the mouth of two or
three witnesses.
How about 30 reasons why it is God’s will to heal? You might say, “Is that all there are, just
30?” No, that’s not all there are, but I don’t know that this should take the next 10 years, or that
it’s supposed to. This is going to take a little doing—some time—looking at reason after reason.
Acts 17 talks about what Paul did in synagogue after synagogue (the equivalent of a church in
his day), and in place after place where people got together, to Jews and then believing Jews and
Gentile Christians. In Acts 17:1-2, it says, “Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and
Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his
manner was,” meaning he did this all the time, it was his normal mode of operation, “went in
unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the Scriptures.” Now, it’s so
important that the last phrase is there. “He reasoned with them…” but don’t stop there. He
reasoned out of the Scriptures. It’s not a matter of what I think or you think, of my opinion or
your opinion. No, that doesn’t cut it. He reasoned with them out of the Scriptures.
If you say, “I’ve always been taught that sometimes it’s not God’s will,” well, I love you, and
I’m not combative about it, but show me a few verses. Just stay with it. Then if someone tells
you they don’t believe it, don’t be combative, and don’t try to push it off on them. Tell them,
“Just listen to this, and if you still don’t believe it, that’s your choice. If you can, find a verse in
Scripture that contradicts all of this.”
But I am confident you will have a tough time disputing all this reasoning. He reasoned with
them out of the Scriptures. He gave them reason after reason, until people who were steeped in
tradition that was contrary to the Word of God heard him Sabbath after Sabbath, and with so
much revelation and so much Scripture, that they thought, “That’s right. I know we haven’t
believed that all of our lives, but that is right.”
Well, there are many reasons in the Word for us to believe that it’s God’s will for us to be
healed, and I’m going to go through them.
