Miracles

yesterday was a healing service.Yes there were many miracles that happened.Praise God for that
but what irks me were the peoples attitude in that service.People began to look at the man who laid hands rather than the healer .arrggh i dont know where to start.

I saw this crippled man walked up to the altar.He was prayed for....and left the altar crippled.Then my thoughts began to stimulate.What about all that the preacher said earlier about no such thing as God's timing?the preacher said God would always heal.God would always say yes there and then.As my thoughts were running, i saw the mother of the crippled man telling her family that is was due to this crippled man's lack of faith.I felt disgusted.Disgusted that u would even condemn such a person.Disgusted that those words would even be blurted out.HOw low can anyone else go?
To walk to the altar was a step of faith!

I couldnt take it any more.I walked out of the hall.I began to think about it.It sounded convincing when he said how "it is not God's timing" sounds ridiculous.BUt as i thought about it further, God has his timing.
Ecclesiastes 3
1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.


It was further emphasized in verse 11 "He has made everything beautiful in its time"

Other verses that support this statement are
Jeremiah 31:31 , Luke 17:22, John 4 :21, JOhn 5:28, etc

NOt taking any credit off the preacher, but there were alot of good points.It was just minor stuff like this that I could not agree upon.

God has his timing for everything.Thats why he created time.Rapture itself is timely.

I dunno.I dont like people being condemn for their lack of faith when it actually is God's timing and God's plan.I have seen crippled people preaching the word and reachinbg to thousands and I believe that was God's plan for them.

Miracles are good, but should not be the foundation of our faith.Foundation of our faith should lie within the creator and perfector of it.Jesus

i agree with you about timing, my mind kept referring back to hannah and God's timing for her pregnacy and soo many similar instances...

but i dont agree with the rapture, i dont believe in the rapture. though God has a time for the end of the world, im pretty sure that the word rapture is never written in the bible.

how about we do our research and "discuss" about it. wahaha! should be fun!
