Grow that arm or leg back for the person praying for it. Why descriminate against them and help someone who claims to have a bad cough and it is cured..........show us!
The lord said. Only say thy name and thee shall be healed..........haven't seen it yet!
........its a good thing I have all my limbs..........for those missing parts, sorry, God is not listening to you.
It takes Faith to be healed in that scense. Peter wanted to healed and Christ told him his Faith was sufficiant. There is a time and season for everything. We are healed in Christ looking forward to the day of redeeemtion.

The Lord has laid this on my heart for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.

Many people have died to make us free. Freedom has a price. Our freedom was purchased with the blood of many brave men and women. On this Memorial Day we thank them and honor them for their sacrifice.

Over two thousand years ago their was another sacrifice for our freedom. This freedom was also paid with blood. The blood of an innocent spotless lamb who laid down His life for us. Not because we deserved it but because He loved us and wanted to set us free from death and sin. His name was Jesus.

Are you free? Truly free? Free, not because you live in the USA but eternally free? Jesus wants to set you free. Jesus died to set you free. Will you be free?

These words are not magic words. Only God knows our heart but if you want to be saved, rescued and set free from eternal death you can be. Today! Right now!

"Jesus, I confess I am lost and in need of Savior. Lord I have sinned against you and heaven. I believe you died for me on a cross and you were raised to life on the third day. I am not worthy of your love and mercy Lord but it is only by your love and mercy I can be saved. Lord, please accept me into your family graciouly and love me eternally. Amen."

Michael, please check this out. You were looking for proof of Jesus healing. This may not be what you were seeking.

Research this man. His name is Smith Wigglesworth. God used him in many miraculous ways. Smith never took credit for the miracles God had done through him.

Here is a small bleep about him.....

HEALING

Smith would pray and the blind would see, and the deaf were healed, people came out of wheelchairs, and cancers were destroyed. One remarkable story is when He prayed for a woman in a hospital. While he and a friend were praying she died. He took her out of the bed stood her against the wall and said "in the name of Jesus I rebuke this death". Her whole body began to tremble. The he said "in the name of Jesus walk", and she walked. Everywhere he would go he would teach and then show the power of God. He began to receive requests from all over the world. He taught in Europe, Asia, New Zealand and many other areas. When the crowds became very large he began a "wholesale healing". He would have everyone who needed healing lay hands on themselves and then he would pray. Hundreds would be healed at one time.

Over Smith's ministry it was confirmed that 14 people were raised from the dead. Thousands were saved and healed and he impacted whole continents for Christ. Smith died on March 12, 1947 at the funeral of his dear friend Wilf Richardson. His ministry was based on four principles:

1. Read the Word of God
2. Consume the Word of God until it consumes you. 3. Believe the Word of God
4. Act on the Word

Purgatory
The Catholic Church teaches that a Christian's soul must burn in purgatory after death until all of their sins have been purged. To speed up the purging process, money may be paid to a priest so he can pray and have special masses for an earlier release.
This heresy began creeping into the Roman Church during the reign of Pope Gregory around the end of the sixth century, and it has no scriptural support.
In fact, Jesus warned us about this pagan practice in Matthew 23:14 when He spoke of those who devoured widows houses and made long prayers for a pretence.
Psalm 49:6-7 tells us that a person couldn't redeem a loved one, even if such a place did exist: "They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:"
Peter addresses this issue in Acts 8:20 when he says, "Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money." God's word is clearly against the doctrine of purgatory.
Absolutely.
I find the entire false doctrine of 'purgatory' insulting to Jesus. The implication is that Jesus left some things unfinished before He died on the cross, and 'romanism had to finish what He left behind'...
Knowing Jesus did not leave anything unfinished, the romish religion is once again trying to 'be the master, not the servant' in its false claims and usurpation of authority it does not have.

You never grasped what the Church is. The spirit that opened your eyes is not the Holy Spirit. I'm sorry for you.
--

oh, Anthony.
There were cults even in the days of Paul and the Apostles! Now THAT means that your church "could possibly be" a cult. No?
I am sorry, for YOU, that you cannot see the that Catholic Church is, indeed, the world's largest (so called "Christian") Cult, headed up by the Pope.
Those willing to allow themselves to be reasoned with, can see that the church is evil, and always has been. God does not support evil! How could he?
The church has murdered, tortured, raped in "God's" name - they have covered up for priests raping little children. They have done this for centuries. Since the day Constantine said, "In this sign, conquer" ... when he rode out to make war. The Crusades, the Inquisition, the Holocaust ... the PAGAN rites and rituals ...
remember: If it's Pagan, it's from Satan and after that you are simply arguing semantics.
That the church does not see anything wrong with what they do, is beyond the pale and proves just how entrenched into, and blinded by, the lies they really are.
-
Embracing the lies, you embrace Satan. Can you not see that?
-
You will KNOW the Truth and the TRUTH will set you free!
-
The TRUTH SETS YOU FREE from ALL THE LIES.
-
and their FIRST LIE is insisting on calling priests "Father" thereby usurping the command of Christ! So basically, you are saying the POPES (who have historically tortured and murdered and sanctioned torture and murder and child rape) have MORE authority than CHRIST! How foul is that already? How filthy would it have to get before you are willing to let YOUR EYES be OPENED?
It started with this blasphemy:
Pope = Father.
But CHRIST said:
Matthew 23:09 ... call no man your father ... for one is your Father and he is in heaven.
Thousands of "Protestant Denominations" have been trying to wrap their brains around this for hundreds of years ... trying to clean up the filthy, nasty, vile mess that has been left by the Catholic Church.
After the 1,700 years of countless murders and tortures and pedophiles later === can you NOT see yow this would be no easy task?
Tell you what ... When all the Protestant churches COMBINED have murdered and tortured and raped as many as the Catholic Church has, throughout its history, then you can say you feel sorry for them.
HOLY Spirit was never in your church. HOLY Spirit is clean and pure worship. Holy Spirit does not go where it does not belong. Ever.
Now. Anthony. Do YOU think YOU can grasp what the "church" ... IS?
Its VISIBLE fruits show it is abomination. What lies hidden behind the Vatican walls ... remains to be seen, and is most likely even GREATER abomination!
Absolutely great post, Guest .. and thank you.
The Book of Revelation, Chapters 17 & 18 clearly spell out romanism's demise. It's guilt will be visible for all to see.
No wonder the present 'pope' is so upset over the Vatileaks --- now he says "The butler did it"!
The real reason their pope doesn't want anyone to know about those secret documents is obvious... it will only expose romanism for what it is all the more.
And all the infighting between its hierarchy is something he wants to hide as well.
Little does he know, but the church of popery is being given the rope, and it is already hanging itself.

And Now this damning story of a damn vatican and FALSE doctrine of men!!!!!!! And still fools ignorant, blind and full of pride still maintain that crap doctrine is TRUE!!
Blasphemy!!! To SAY CHRIST RESIDES IN THIS HIDEUOS INSTITUTION!!!!! Poor Poor Church Members indoctrinated into an outright lie, and like muslims, and others.....just unable to see or accept the origins of their religion!!! LUCIFER is sure painting His Masterpiece right now. "The Whole is deceived" So it is written. Everything transpiring today are Prophecies being fullfilled!!!
YES -- Biblical prophecy IS being fulfilled. Popery is on the fragile edge of the abyss, and about to tumble into that bottomless pit.
Yet, in its arrogance (and effects of brainwashing on its members) it still insists 'WE are The Church created by Christ'.... Amazingly, in the tortures of their 'inquisition', statues of their Jesus on the cross were covered with opaque material 'so Jesus could not see the heretics being punished', according to historical records.
Their guilt has piled higher than the ceilings of their 'church' buildings. They know it; they simply refuse to admit it. But the day is dawning where they will have NO choice.

Monkey muffins, madam. I KNOW Jesus left nothing unfinished. The reason your cult invented 'purgatory' was to supposedly 'finish off what He left unfinished'. In its arrogance, it decided that 'further work was needed' for a romanist to be considered 'fit' to enter Heaven, yet it also sold useless 'indulgences' to supposedly lessen a soul's time in that imaginary place. All the money paid for the 'release of their souls' went into the priests' pockets.
And what about the tall tale concerning Mary 'rescuing from purgatory all who wore the brown scapular'?
You are a farce, believing what your founder John Smyth a mortal-man to start a 'new little church' with its own made up rules. LOL
OTC, madam, YOU are the farce.
Just because I am Baptist, that doesn't make me a follower of Smyth. The Baptist faith teaches the closest to the Bible than any others I have checked out.
And if you care to recall, madam: I no longer attend organized religious services, but worship at home.
Jesus Himself said it at the Last Supper, "This IS my body which will be given up for you" This IS my blood which will be given up for you" John 6
But….. NOooooo you'd rather go with John Smyth a nut that baptized himself!!!!!
Ha, ha, ha!!!!
Jesus never emphasized the 'is' madam.
Your cult did.
Jesus spoke FIGURATIVELY, not literally. He also said about participating in the Lord's Table: "THIS DO IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME". That proves right there that He spoke of the bread and the wine being SYMBOLIC elements of His flesh and blood.
Call me whatever you like, madam. It means nothing, and I forgive you for it.
But as long as you continue to willingly remain with popery, you are damning yourself.

As you know the news media is at a fevered pitch with the latest scandals coming out of the vatican. VATI-LEAKS..

Power struggles between the bishops/cardinals within the vatican. NO! Can't be true! Corruption at the HIGHEST level of the Governance of the catholic church......leaked documents clearly show this. NO! can't be true!

This is right out of an old ALFORD HITCHCOCK drama......"THE BUTLER DID IT"

With so many scandals, catholics are now learning of what is really going on behind the curtains within the vatican.

My next life is starting to look much better now that these so called leaders of the "ONE TRUE CHURCH" are the biggest phonies of all, yet catholics still won't give themselves a "WAKE UP CALL" as to what is really going on. Catholics still believe the bishops/cardinals and pope within vatican city are "JUST ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY".......UNBELIEVABL E!

Militant conservative apologist Catholics better soon get a grip on what is transpiring within the crumbling structure of their church at the highest level.

If Jesus really built the catholic church, he better return quickly with re-inforced materials, before the whole thing comes tumbling down.

Don't be such an idiot!! Read the history!
“The New Testament contains five different metaphors for the foundation of the Church (Matt. 16:18, 1 Cor. 3:11, Eph. 2:20, 1 Pet. 2:5–6, Rev. 21:14). One metaphor that has been disputed is Jesus Christ’s calling the apostle Peter "rock": "You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it" (Matt. 16:18).
Some have tried to argue that Jesus did not mean that his Church would be built on Peter but on something else.
JESUS is that ROCK, not Peter. JESUS is the HEAD of HIS CHURCH, not your elected pope, who is merely a cult leader of the MAN-MADE romanist religion.

Deu_32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Deu_32:18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.

1Sa_2:2 There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.

2Sa_22:2 And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;
2Sa_22:3 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.
2Sa_22:32 For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?
2Sa_22:47 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.

Psa_18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
Psa_18:31 For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?
Psa_18:46 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

1Co_10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

How many people missing limbs went to him, he prayed and their arms or legs grew back?

I watch TV evangelists every week and they cure people all the time. They too say so.

Muslims too claim to have healing and miracle prayers that work. Do you believe them?

I say baloney to all of it......and you should too.

Things happen because they happen.

It's sordid, filthy, greedy, bloodthirsty history reveals what the thing is. It is doomed, it is Pagan; it serves Satan, not God.
