The bible says, "by his stripes you "were" healed". "Were" being the key word. We were healed over 2000 years ago. People shouldn't be fighting to get healed, they should be fighting because they are already healed. I mean serious, who do you think has the better credentials, our creator (God) or someone that went to college for 8 years(doctor)? I'm going to lean towards God. Healing all has to do with how much faith you have. When someone doesn't get healed it is not Gods fault, God has already done his part, people have to recieve their healing through faith. The reason some people aren't healed is because a lack of faith. Praying and believing for someone to be healed needs a higher level of faith for most people because it isn't an everyday thing to see or do in most cases. There are different levels of faith. I believe it is Gods will to heal all of the time, everytime, though some Christians disagree. I know of people that will try to believe for someone to get healed and when they don't see it happen they'll say, "I guess it wasn't Gods will." Well, I believe that they are wrong and that most of the time those people just didn't have enough faith. People can confuse faith with desire when it comes to healings. Sure nobody wants to see a loved one sick or dying, but alot of times instead of believing and recieving that they are healed, they say please heal whomever and beg like they have to twist Gods arm to do it. Now I don't see anything wrong with going to a Doctor while you are believing to be healed. Because after all the Doctor is your only other option. Say for example, my dad had a heart attack about 5-7years ago. He was having problems with his arm going numb and he couldn't sleep so he drove to the hospital to get checked out. Well come to find out he was having a heart attack and the doctors put him in ICU. The next day the doctor came in and told him that a 1/3 of his heart was dead and would never work again, and my dad said to him, "I'm a believer and God has healed me". The doctor with a sarcastic face was like sure and walked off. The next day the doctor ran more tests, and said that he has never seen this happen before, and found that the 1/3 part of his heart that was dead the day before turn into just a 1/4 of his heart was dead, my dad said to him, "I told you I'm a believer." The doctor again walked off in disbelief. Then come the next day the doctor ran more tests and said I don't understand it, your heart is fully recovered and working fine. You see, my dad went to the doctor while believing that God would heal him, and God did, not the doctor. To the doctor my dads heart was unhealable, but through my dad and my families faith and prayeres he was already healed, and it came to pass.
