    I dont see it as a "pattern" I see God/Jesus doing exactly what he wants to do…every time…with no connection to a proper or improper request on our part. And no, I dont agree with us COMMANDING …EVER

    fairly new to your material, LOVE what I've seen so far, on this one though I feel a need to pick a 'minor' nit, about 2 min in there's an interaction and the way it is worded in the telling of it you handling of it is quite understandable and would seem totally reasonable, but I think the petitioner has a slight theological flawed presumption that Jesus doesn't bother addressing as it has not significant bearing on the mans more pressing needs. to be more specific, I firmly believe that GOD is 'always' willing to heal us, however, it is not always GOD's will that we be healed. I realize this claim would be 'very' confusing to most 'christians' but I suspect that you can easily catch my meaning. ty, keep up the good work, .. and hang in there : )

    I would love to share this on social media but I have too many charismaniac friends. As well, as WOF friends.

    We can command all we want
    Healing comes from the Almighty according to His will

    We pray in the authority of Jesus name

    Another point about faith:
    Most of the people Jesus healed had no faith at all.
    They knew Jesus was a healer because they saw it. It was sight, not faith.
    And that's all they knew about Him. They had no relationship with Him.
    Today, we're God's children, born again, indwelt by the Holy Spirit. We know Jesus heals because we read about it and believe it. We know who He is, and everything He taught and did.
    Our faith is vastly superior to theirs. But they were all healed, at a far higher rate than we are.
    Therefore, it's not about faith.

    Jesus didn't heal everyone Mark 6:5.

    No. We cannot command healing. All authority is given to Jesus, not to us. We pray according to God's will. We do not command God's will. The New Apostolic Reformation heresy of Bill Johnson, Che Ahn, Rick Joyner, Randy Clark, Joshua Mills, Todd White and the Word of Faith heresy of Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Jesse Duplantis, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen promote this blasphemous nonsense of commanding healing.

    We even pray for His will to be done in the Lord's Prayer
