a-servant said, """""""I've got healed more than once that way, the first time I was on the
way to see death within hours, before Jesus stopped it and saved my life.

Actually it could have gone either way twice, the other time was a traffic
accident where people didn't touch me while I was lying on the street
covered in blood, everybody thought I was dead.
I repented - was all my fault.

One day I jumped over something, landed badly, needed an
urgent operation, but Jesus healed me

My daughter suddenly couldn't walk anymore, needed an operation,
all doctors said the same, but Jesus healed her ...and so forth""""""""

Brother, what a powerful testimony! Rejoicing with you and your daughter. Jesus is so worthy, so loving, and is always there to help us in our time of need. Praise the Lord! God bless you and your family.

I do believe that the bible tells us not only to ask God for healing but also to exercise the gift of healing by faith.

It honors God to exercise what he has entrusted us to.
Not only that, it also it a command to follow.

Luke 9:2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.

Luke 10:9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

There is no verse in the bible that limits the gift of healing to the the early church . It is for us to use now.

I would even go so far and say that not using the gift of healing when we could have deprives God of an opportunity to show his grace and power. Disobeying the command grieves God.

It is our responsibility to use them. The preached word is the most important means to testify truth, followed by good works to show love but let us not demean healing and miracles. They are needed to testify Gods power.

My wife became first interested in God because she saw a miracle before her eyes. The rest followed later.

You got healed because you had faith. You exercised faith and Gods power was released.

It sounds very humble to say that only God heals, but the truth is, God needs our faith and action to release his power in that case. He wants us to participate in this business - as always. Unbelieve hinders healing.

We live in a part of Germany with very few Christians and only few and small fellowships. I pray that God will prove his power with signs and wonders to make people believe.

We need to recover healing and miracles in their right application and place regardless of what abuse has been done to it by others in presumption. That should not deter us.

I agree with James 5:14 regarding elders and: "the prayer
of faith shall save the sick" - I do not agree with Smith
Wigglesworth. Or any 'gifts ministry' that has its emphasis
on signs & wonders and the people that offer it
- instead on the glory that belongs to Jesus Christ.

Todd Bentley was another one of these faith healers
that hit a “Chinese guy so hard that a tooth popped
out of his mouth.” or an old lady “... there is this
old lady worshipping right in front of the platform
and the Holy Spirit spoke to me. He said, ‘Kick her
in the face with your biker boot.” Not surprisingly
his site is called "Fresh Fire USA".

"The prayer of faith shall save the sick" vs. "people that
punch & kick the sick". Sorry that is just not the same,
and never will be the same. One is eternal truth - the
other belongs in the trash can of history.

They misrepresent the Holy Spirit.
