Follow Jesus' examples to get Kingdom results

Ben Lunis's picture

3-6-12 6:18pm Isaiah 57:1 and 2 records: "The righteous perish and no man lays it to heart and men of loving kindness are taken away, no one considering that the righteous one is taken away from the evil to come.  He shall enter into peace;they should rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness." 

When we are praying for healing for a person, we do not know if You are wanting to spare someone from evil to come. Holy Lord Jesus, in this I see another reason why we should hear or see You before we pray for anyone, following Your example for us (John 5:19, 20, 30).

 

Ben, this is another great truth of Mine. I am tired of My people doing their own thing to please or appease Me. I want My people to seek My face for everything, and I do mean everything. When people follow My example, they too will receive heavenly results in My timing and in My will. Encourage My people to do as I do, for as I have told you in the Scriptures, you shall do even greater works than I did (John 14:12). And this is how you do it - you first see Me or hear Me before you venture forth in My kingdom.

Ben, I cherish your journaling and the divine responses... but, I have concerns with this question and response.

I believe it is always God's will to heal us... always! Jesus always did as He heard or saw His Father, God do. Jesus is the true representation of His Father, God! There are many times where the New Testament says Jesus healed "all". There is not one instance where Jesus refused to heal someone! Not one... There are instances where people did not receive healing because of their unbelief; but, there is no instance where Jesus ever refused to heal someone! ...or caused someone to be sick, diseased, or infirmed! Not one...

Also, the scripture you asked about was in the Old Testament... before the cross. We are no longer under Law as people were in the Old Testament. We are under Grace... and under a better covenant (Hebrews 7:22 and 8:6). Because of the suffering and sacrifice of Jesus as an atonement for us, I believe we can "believe and receive" healing for ourselves and for others... thru Jesus (1 Peter 2:24). Always... (Mark 11:23-24)

I believe we have to be careful comparing scripture before and scripture after the cross...
God bless you... your family... and your ministry!

Thank you so much for your comments. The longer I journal with our Lord, the more I find myself asking Him about anything and everything, regardless of my religious background. When I ask something amiss, He gently corrects me. I asked Him about your comments and here is what He shared with me.

Share with him that you are just a messenger boy sharing what I give to you. Regarding the theological correctness of an issue, I want my people to see past theology and to see Me as I am, not as I am masked by theology. As people spend more time with Me, I am able to share my truths with them. They are then set free to worship me in spirit and in truth.

Many blessings to you as you seek His wonderful face!

Thank you, Ben! Thank you for caring and asking about my concerns. This is a humbling experience… and I appreciate your heart and the sincere effort you put into journaling. I appreciate your journaling… and the responses you receive from God! I look forward to reading your journaling entries… I do not hear from God like you do; but, I do not put time into communing with God like you do. I think I let the “care of this world” and thoughts of other things distract me. I think my flesh gets in the way of my spirit… I will try to “spend more time” with God as He said to do. Thank you for journaling!

Don,
Thank you for your comments. I so appreciate receiving them. 
May I encourage you to spend more time in the loving presence of our Lord. 
He so loves it when you do.  As you spend time with Him, you will find greater
freedom in hearing His voice.  If there is anything that I can share or do,
please let me know.
 
Many blessings to a dear brother in our Lord!
Ben

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
