In regards to miracles; When you pray for something like healing, Do Not take a step backward saying, “Perhaps it isn’t the will of God,” I hear people say things like this all the time, and this is a faithless attitude and it is unscriptural. It is his will, and I can back it up in scripture;
“And behold, a leper came to him and knelt before him, saying, ‘Lord, if you’re willing, you can make me clean.’
And Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, ‘I am willing; be clean.’ And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.”

It is a leap of logic to say that because it was the will of God to heal that leper, it is his will to heal everyone.
The scripture does not say that.
Your belief is contrary to scripture, else Paul would have told Timothy to have faith in God to heal him rather than offering medicinal advice.

So you believe. Then it is not God’s will that everybody be saved? What was special of a leper that was a sinner? I do not remember Jesus saying go to Luke.
Levi Allen Goff [09/25/2015 12:59 PM]
It is not a leap of logic, it is a leap of faith.
“Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. 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. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.”
James 5:13-18 (ESV)

if someone is not healed then own up to it!!! somebody is the hindrance!
Levi Allen Goff [09/25/2015 1:44 PM]
It is indeed a matter of faith. Elijah sent the man seven times to check for rain as he continued to pray, but he did not give up saying, “Perhaps it is God’s will that it will never rain again.” No he continued to pray, knowing he was a man of God.
Therefore the hindrance would be from that somebody’s lack of faith.
The leper came to Jesus, with a humble heart, and full faith that, Jesus was able, if only it was his will. He was humble, and Jesus was willing.

I believe that people can be healed apart from God’s will! It is a virtue to pray according to God’s will! Certainly not an excuse for God not healing. 😉
Levi Allen Goff [09/25/2015 1:50 PM]
Yes! The leper appealed before God to make it his will. Instantly, it was done!

I think we may have a mistranslation in 1st Tim 5:23. Instead of “use a little wine for your stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities” it should read “it’s useless to whine about your stomach ache and your often informing us about it.” “Stop being a whiney baby and bellyaching about everything.” WOF translation

Is that the medicinal instructions? Lol, wow… That is funny. Just because somebody tells me to take a Tylenol for a headache doesn’t discredit a much needed healing that could only come from the savior!
I like to hit deep with the word of God, not taking it just at face value. So if Paul said drink wine… Let us accept the wine which is the blood to cure our ailments.
