Objections to Divine Healing Answered

The failure of many to receive divine healing over the years have given rise to a whole slew of traditional explanations for why we should not really expect divine healing to happen today. These objections are answered in this article.

Confessions about Prosperity

I return to the LORD and obey His voice and the LORD my God will make me abundantly prosperous in all the work of my hand, in EVERYTHING. For the LORD takes delight in prospering me. Deut 30.9

My God shall supply all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Php 4.19

Confessions on Forgiving Others

Father, forgive me my debts, as I forgive my debtors. Mt 6.12

For if I forgive men their trespasses, my Heavenly Father will also forgive me. But if I do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will my Father forgive my trespasses. Mt 6.14 6.15

If my brother sins against me I shall forgive him up to seventy times seven times. Mt 18.21 18.22

My Heavenly Father will deliver me to the torturers until I pay all I owe God, if I from my heart do not forgive my brother his trespasses. Mt 18.34 18.35

The blood of the New Covenant was shed for the remission of sins.

Confessions on the Fear of the Lord

BENEFITS

O fear the LORD, you His saints – revere and worship Him! For there is no want to those who truly revere and worship him with godly fear. Ps 34.9

The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant. Ps 25.14

The Lord’s Supper

WE BELIEVE the Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements of bread and the fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4); a memorial of His sufferings and death (1 Cor 11:26); and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Cor 11:26), and is enjoined upon all believers “until He comes”. Luke 22:15-20; Matt 26:26-28; Acts 20:7.

Introduction

As we saw in our last lesson, an ordinance is the outward sign of an inward work. We believe Jesus only established two ordinances for us to observe.

Kings AND Priests

“To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” (Revelation 1:5,6)

Jesus not only washed us from our sins in His own blood, but He has also lifted us up to two very important offices. The believer has the potential to operate as BOTH a king and a priest to God. One of the fundamental revelations of the Reformation was ‘the priesthood of all believers’ but I believe the Reformers themselves had a very limited idea of what this means.

Money and Responsible Handling of Resources

Our series of studies would not be complete without considering the principles by which a true disciple of Jesus should be guided in the matter of responsibly and biblically handling the natural resources which God has given to each one. In this study we will consider Biblical principles that apply to the way we handle the time, money and talents we have received from God. Most of us would like more resources – more free time, more money and more abilities.
