James 5:14; “Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.”

This morning after delivering an order to a hardware store in Tokai, I was driving toward Retreat and my eye caught a poster promoting a healing crusade for this Sunday between 10 and 11:30 a.m. At the bottom of the poster in bold capitals; “Bring all your sick … God is going to heal them!” God has given us, as Christians, the promise of divine healing. Exodus 15:26 says; “He said, “If you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.” Now although the Bible teaches that there were miracles and healings, it is interesting to note that nowhere in the Bible do we read of anyone having a ministry devoted to “faith-healing” or a “miracle-ministry.” You see it was never God’s plan to put the focus on miracles or signs and wonders, the focus was always on Jesus Christ and on telling people how to believe. For me, and you need to believe what you feel you should believe, I do not think that we should ever announce a miracle service to be held at a certain time and place. It’s up to the Lord to choose where and when he will sovereignly do the miraculous or heal someone, his ways are not our ways, his timing is not our timing, but always perfect. From my humble perspective believers should never follow signs and wonders, rather signs and wonders should follow believers. Does God heal today? Absolutely – I have seen it happen before my very eyes, perhaps you too. Should we ask for God’s touch and healing? Yes – all the time. Does God heal everyone today? No. Sometimes God will heal, but other times he won’t. Either way we need to remember that God always has a plan and purpose in mind, and we need to trust him. Miracles and healing signal the reality that God’s kingdom has been initiated on earth, reflecting his will to restore all things, and their purpose is partly to remind us that God is the true God, and that only his power can manifest miracles. When Jesus returns, his will on earth will be completely done “as it is in heaven” and miracles remind us that this day is coming - and hopefully soon. Ultimately, our full physical healing awaits us in heaven. Revelation 21 reminds us that, in heaven, there will be no more pain, sickness, disease, suffering, or death. We all need to be less preoccupied with our physical condition in this world and a lot more concerned with our spiritual condition (Romans 12:1-2). Then we can focus our hearts on heaven where we will no longer have to deal with physical problems. Revelation 21:4 describes the true healing we should all be longing for saying that: “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
