  1. Shalom JJBerean, Welcome to Worthy Christian Forums. Please feel free to browse around and get to know everyone. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. As soon as you post a few times and after they are approved, it'll tell us that you are "real" person and not a "bot", you'll be free to post throughout our forums and join our chat rooms. Forgive us for this minor inconvenience, however, we've had issues in the past with Spammers! This is a short tutorial video of how to get started with Worthy Christian Forums. As soon as you get out of Newbie status, you'll be able to add your profile picture. You may be interested in reading how WCF functions, and how the forums are set up, and other neat tricks to the forums. Read our insights into WCF. Let me share a little bit of my vision for the ministry in a parable. Let's say I'm throwing a big party and am inviting the world to the party (the forums) and I want everyone to have a great time, eating (reading through posts being fed), drinking (being encouraged to walk in His Word), and having fellowship with one another. In Israel, we have Shabbat meals -- and whenever you have 2 Jews -- you have 3 opinions -- it's GREAT to be opinionated. I encourage discussions ... but during our Shabbat meals ... we never ever get to the point in disagreements whereby food is being tossed and seriously yelling takes place! And if someone comes into the meal ... and starts throwing food ... and yells at everyone -- what do you suppose the head of the Shabbat meal will do? He'll escort those causing problems out of the house! Why? Because the whole reason for the gathering was to learn from one another ... to have a great time of fellowship! Some people like to constantly throw food and yell ... they won't last on Worthy ... because they missed the point of the party ... it's a prequel to the true party -- the Lamb's Supper! All I'm trying to provide is a place to allow true fellowship ... and discussions in love ... in the hopes it will be a catalyst for true REVIVAL based on REPENTANCE! I hope you have a blessed time at Worthy! Please REPORT any posts that you believe should be reviewed! We strive to have ALL members abide by our Terms of Service.

  10. ... and how did Job reply ... "though the Lord slay me, I will hope in him" and yet he continues with "yet I will argue my ways to His face." I wish I could say that I have all the answers, but one thing I realize in this life -- the more I know, the more I REALIZE how much I don't know! But I do know that God still heals today ... so that's really the purpose of this thread ... will we have the faith to pray for those who truly need it?
  11. I didn't see Paul get healed. Though he asked ...
  12. Great point -- as James points out -- many a prayer are not answered -- because it's asked amiss!
  13. Sadly, I've known many a believer that passed away these days that were full of faith. But in the reality of our eternity they are with the King! Listen, I pray for healing at every one of our services for people. I believe that God heals ... and I've seen God heal. You probably haven't been around, but my daughter who is now almost 16 -- was born blind -- and to make a very long story short ... in the midst of a 10 day fast and prayer session she now sees. I believe the word in James when it says, 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." I believe a great many people are not healed, because they ask not! Some people may find this strange ... but if you don't pray for healing ... you're actually committing a sin of "omission", when the Bible says quite plainly -- if someone is sick ... get prayer ... anoint him! Expect something awesome to take place.
  14. Let me ask you this question. Think of it this way. Did Luke stop being a doctor? I never saw him stop being a doctor during his travels with Paul. When Jesus says to the Pharisees ... you tithe mint and rue ... why did they tithe mint, dill and cummin? They were herbs used in healing. My concern is that God provides doctors to heal ... and if you say, if you go to a doctor -- you have no faith, this is where this thread was going. This is the problem I forsaw and so I was re-directing this thread, because it is important to pray for healing and EXPECT it! But at the same time, God often provides other means for people to get healed whether its herbs, oils, medicine, etc.
  15. A modern day parable ... A fellow was stuck on his rooftop in a flood. He was praying to God for help. Soon a man in a rowboat came by and the fellow shouted to the man on the roof, "Jump in, I can save you." The stranded fellow shouted back, "No, it's OK, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me." So the rowboat went on. Then a motorboat came by. "The fellow in the motorboat shouted, "Jump in, I can save you." To this the stranded man said, "No thanks, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me. I have faith." So the motorboat went on. Then a helicopter came by and the pilot shouted down, "Grab this rope and I will lift you to safety." To this the stranded man again replied, "No thanks, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me. I have faith." So the helicopter reluctantly flew away. Soon the water rose above the rooftop and the man drowned. He went to Heaven. He finally got his chance to discuss this whole situation with God, at which point he exclaimed, "I had faith in you but you didn't save me, you let me drown. I don't understand why!" To this God replied, "I sent you a rowboat and a motorboat and a helicopter, what more did you expect?" Praise God that He heals through Jesus using doctors, medicine, through essential oils, through herbs, through diet and MOST importantly He STILL HEALS by FAITH!

  16. The WAY you answered it ... and the means by which you answer is the reason it got erased. Whenever I have a thread with 10 reports within 4 pages ... being reported by a half dozen different people ... there is an issue. I simply addressed the issue, and desire that the truth that Jesus heals today is REAL. But it's HOW we teach these truths. Remember how the Servant of the Lord is to teach ... 2Ti 2:24 And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, 2Ti 2:25 correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, 2Ti 2:26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will. This is why many of the posts were removed. I believe this is a worthy topic and one that needs to be taught ... but it needs to be taught in a manner by which the Holy Spirit can reveal His Truth. Your brother in the Lord with much agape love, George
  17. There's no commandment describing when you need to be baptized. It's just an act of obedience and truly is a symbol of realizing that you putting to death your former self -- and being risen to new life in Him. Romans 6:4 Therefore we were buried with Him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father; even so we also should walk in newness of life. God bless, George
  18. Through Jesus is healing ... but Jesus healed the same ailment several different ways -- with different people he used mud, some with spit, and some just by touch. All were healed ... but all were healed in different ways. I wrote this modern day parable ... perhaps this will explain what I mean. God bless, George
  19. So I went through this thread, and from its beginning it went on a wrong turn. I believe this is a topic worthy of discussion so I wanted to keep it up instead of being removed. NOT ALL DISEASES are caused by demons or sin. How do we know? Well, in John 9, we see this passage ... Joh 9:1 And passing by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. Joh 9:2 And His disciples asked Him, saying, Master, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind? Joh 9:3 Jesus answered, Neither has this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God might be revealed in him. So here we have an instance that his blindness was not caused by sin. Joh 9:10 Then they said to him, How were your eyes opened? Joh 9:11 He answered and said, A man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, Go to the pool of Siloam and wash. And going and washing, I received sight. So we also see that the healing was not by "casting out a demon". But simply his blindness was due to a this fallen world. With that being said, I believe that many causes for illness have a root of demonic activity that we don't investigate and simply believe its physical without realizing the spiritual issues. I would venture to say, a large number of mental health patients very well may be dealing with demons "vexing" them. There is no "cookie cutter" means of healing ... but there is healing in the name of Jesus. Your brother in the Lord with much agape love, George
