Have you wondered why sometimes people of faith become sick and ask for healing, praying fervently, yet are not healed, perhaps suffering for years, or dying of some disease or infirmity? Does the Bible offer a guarantee of physical healing in this lifetime, for those who have “enough faith”? Lazarus, in the parable in Luke 16, was diseased and reduced to begging, yet is to be with Abraham in the resurrection. Why wasn’t he healed in this lifetime? What are we to learn from the example of the other Lazarus, who, after he had died and been buried, was restored to life by Jesus Christ?
Over the years, there’s been much misunderstanding regarding faith and healing, and what the Scriptures say about the relationship between the two. In the sermon, “Faith and Healing,” are discussed a number of Scriptural passages and principles relating to faith and healing, that may help you better understand questions related to the subject.
