CONCLUSION:  Based on scripture, the source of supernatural physical healing comes from the Lord (God or Jesus).

The Lord requires faith, great or small, before he heals a person.  The main reason he requires faith is so
that you realize who healed you and your faith in God grows deeper.

It is rare but God does occasionally heal people with no faith.

There are times when God withholds his healing from people of faith, great or small, for the purpose
of correction or discipline.  He may be pushing a person to a place of repentance.  Turning from a sinful action
in a persons life.  Also, he may withhold his healing to keep a person humble, remembering their  
strength lies in God.  He may also withhold his healing to produce patients, endurance, perseverance, 
character and hope, refining the believer.

Lastly, there are people who have faith that are never healed.  For their entire life, they never see an end
to their affliction.  Many disabled people can relate to this and may never know why God doesn’t heal them.  But
they can still know God as their counselor, savior and strength of their heart.

MY OVERALL POINT IS THIS:  THERE IS NO BLANKET ANSWER TO GOD’S SUPERNATURAL 
PHYSICAL HEALING.  If you do this or if you do that or if you have enough faith then God will automatically heal
you.  The Lord usually requires faith but it also depends on where you are in your walk with the Lord and what he’s
doing in your life.

Most importantly, it’s your heart that God wants.  He wants your emotions, your soul, your love.  It’s why you
were created, “to love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind, and with all your soul.”  When God
has your heart, heaven will be your final destination where there is no pain and no suffering.

There are two things you can do to help maintain your physical healing and even prolong your life.  First, eating well-
plenty of fruits and vegetables.  Secondly, obtaining the peace and emotional well being that comes from knowing
God’s word and having a relationship with God.

Remember, whether God heals a person or never heals a person, we will all grow old (physically break down) and
die.

Next week we will begin reading about dinosaurs.  Did they live in biblical times or millions of years ago?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

A fourth final thought:

Many believers reference 1 Peter 2:24  “by his wounds you have been healed.”  They believe Jesus bore all of our
physical illness on the cross.

Let’s read the full scripture.  1 Peter 2:24  “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might
die to sins and live for righteousness;  by his wounds you have been healed (forgiven).”

Let’s read another scripture.  Isaiah 53:5  But he was pierced for our transgressions (breaking the law), he
was crushed for our iniquities (sin);  the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds
we are healed (forgiven).

The wounds that Jesus suffered were for the forgiveness of our sins and not the healing of our physical
bodies.  

The sacrifice of Jesus on the cross was to fulfill the old law of offering an unblemished sacrificial  
lamb, goat or animal for the forgiveness of sins.  Jesus is the last sacrificial lamb and the last shed-
ding of blood for our sins to ever be made.

Next week, the conclusion to Physical Healing.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Last week we read that eating healthy is important to physical health.

A third final thought:

The second way to help maintain your health and even prolong your life is to obtain the peace and emotional
well being that comes from knowing God’s word and having a relationship with God. 

Proverbs 3:2  but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring
you prosperity.

Proverbs 4:20  My son, pay attention to what I say;  listen closely to my words.  Do not let them out of your
sight, keep them within your heart;  for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole 
body.

Next week, a forth final thought.  After that, the conclusion to Physical Healing.  Our next study will be “Dinosaurs.”
Does the bible describe dinosaurs?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

A second final thought:

There are things you can do to help maintain your physical health and even prolong your life.  The first thing is
eating healthy.

Genesis 1:29  Then God said, “I give you seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has
fruit with seed in it.  They will be yours for food.

Genesis 1:30  I give every green plant for food.

A great example of eating correctly is when Daniel didn’t want to defile himself with royal food.  He asked that he
and the servants be fed nothing but vegetables and water to drink.

Daniel 1:12  “Please test your servants for ten days:  Give us nothing but vegetables and water to drink.  Then com-
pare our appearance with that of the young men that eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with
what you see.”  So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days.

At the end of ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who
ate the royal food.  So the guard took away their choice food and the wine they were to drink and gave them
vegetables instead.

Next week a third final note.  A second way to maintain physical health.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Welcome and thanks for reading.  Last week we read that some people may suffer their entire life and never be
physically healed.  Although this is true, the person can still know God as their counsel and the strength of their
heart.

Now I’d like to express some final thoughts.

First final thought:

Whether God physically heals a person or never physically heals a person, we all grow old, physically break down,
and die.  Because our soul lives forever, in comparison the physical suffering or disability that we experience will
only last for a short time.  Heaven can be our final destination where there is no pain or suffering.

Revelations 21:4  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.

2 Corinthians 5:1  Now we know that if the earthly tent (body) we live in is destroyed, we have an eternal house in
heaven, not built by human hands.

Next week a second final note.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

The psalmist, a believer in God, knows no reason for his suffering.  Can this psalmist find strength from God
within his despair?

Psalms 73:23  Yet I am always with you;  you hold me by my right hand.  You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you take me to glory.

Psalms 73:25  Whom have I in heaven but you?  And earth has nothing I desire besides you.  My flesh and my 
heart may fail, but my God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

The psalmist realizes that although he can’t understand why he is always in anguish, he knows that
God is always with him.  God is his counsel and the strength of his heart.  God is his savior.

I believe disabled people can relate to the psalmist.  Although their physical health may be failing for many years
or their entire life, God can still be the strength of their heart.  Often, their relationship with God is
deeper than a person in good health.  It’s your heart that God wants the most.  He wants your emotions,
your soul, your love.  It’s why you were created, “to love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind,
and with all your soul.”

For the next several weeks, I want to make several final points about physical healing and finish with the

conclusion.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Last week we read that there are times when God withholds his physical healing and allows suffering.  Often, God
does this for the purpose of refining the believer.  As a result of thier suffering, the believer may be mature and
complete, not lacking anything.

Last but not least, are there times when the Lord will never heal a person who has faith, great or small?  For their
entire life will they never see an end to their suffering?

Psalms 88:8  You have taken from me my closest friends, and have made me repulsive to them.  I am confined 
and cannot escape;  my eyes are dim with grief.

Psalms 88:13  But I cry to you for help, O Lord;  in the morning my prayer comes before you.  Why, O Lord, do 
you reject me and hide your face from me?

Psalms 88:15  From my youth I have been afflicted and close to death;  I have suffered your terrors and am  
in despair.

Psalms 88:18  You have taken my companion and loved ones from me;  the darkness is my closest friend.

The psalmist, a believer in God, recalls his life of unremitting anguish.  He knows no reason for his
suffering.

Next week, can this same psalmist find strength and comfort from God within his despair?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
