Expect God to heal the sick – Blocks to Healing

We Are All Called To Heal Others – It is Part of the Great Commission

We are all called to heal through the laying of hands on the sickness.

Who said we are called to heal!  Jesus said in Mark 16:15-18 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. {16} “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. {17-18} “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they… will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

We Are All Called to Heal through the Laying of Hands on the Sick – Blocks to Healing

That means, not only salvation, but deliverance and healing is part of the whole according to the Word of God.  The answer yes, we are all called to heal the sick through the laying of hands. 

Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

As they went forth in the power of His name, many miracles and healing were accomplished by these disciples, who had followed Jesus. Just as healing was a integral part of Jesus ministry it was now to be an integral part of their ministry.  We are all called and have the authority to heal the sick

Reasons Why Some Do Not Receive Healing – Blocks to healing

Healing Blocks

1. A Lack of Faith are blocks to healing – It takes faith to receive healing – Acts 14:9-10.

2. Unconfessed and unrepented sin are blocks to healing – Isaiah 59:2, Psalm 66:18.

3. Being double-minded, doubting  are blocks to healing –  not convinced – James 1:6-8.

4. Self-indulgence are blocks to healing – James 4:3.

5. Having an indifference towards God and His purpose are blocks to healing – Proverbs 1:28-30.

6. Having a disobedient spirit towards God and established authority – 1 Sam. 15:22, 1 John 3:22.

7. Building your faith on experience and circumstances rather than the Word of God – Romans 10:17.

8. Having a pattern of negatives confessions that are not in agreement with the word of God – 2 Corinthians 4:13.

9. Holding to unscriptural teachings – 2 Timothy 2:15. eg. many people think that sickness and disease is a part of the Christian life because the Bible says we will be afflicted. (See Psalm 34:19)

10. Partaking communion with unforgiveness towards someone.

1 Corinthians 11:29-30 For anyone who eats and drinks [the Lord’s supper, vs. 20] without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep.  If you have unforgiveness towards a brother, go and make peace before partaking in communion.

11.  A big problem with young people is dishonoring parents.  We are told in Eph. 6:2,3  Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. Eph. 6:2, 3.

12. Physical causes which are blocks to healing:

(a) Deficiency of certain food elements necessary to the bodys health.
(b) Over-eating. Gluttony. This can become sin.
(c) Inactivity. Lack of proper exercise.
(d) Lack of proper rest and recreation.
(e) Careless and negligent exposure to weather and disease.
(f) Wrong, mental and emotional habits, or should we say wrong spiritual habits. Fears, worries, hatred, failure to find rest and peace and trust in Christ.

13. Waivering in their faith.  When not healed, they doubt God’s love for them.
