I don’t know. I have been watching those Christians on television who claim to have the gift of healing. I find myself always doubting them and their claims. Yet I’m always watching them on TV. There is one couple that I’m especially watching with the side-eye. That couple that has the catchy tune “Miracles Do Happen” with the pan music playing in the background. So very tropical island like! So very caribbean! I see these people doing their healings by just touching someone, and I can’t help but think they are putting on some farce. Somehow, they are trying to pull the wool over my eyes, and I simply won’t let them. They are touching one person after the next and the people fall out on their backs and come up healed! Or that’s what they want us to believe. Hmpt! Not me, noooo!
This couple both claim the same “annointing”–how convenient! So they film themselves having hands layed on them by Oral Roberts, no less. I’m thinking, “exploitation”! When I see others, like Benny Hinn, and anybody else who claims the ability to heal people, I question them as well. So I have been in a great period of questioning the things I see, or the things that I tend to focus on in this time period. But all is not well with me in all of this.
I have read in my Bible about healing. I have read about how Jesus healed and how the apostles healed. And I believe. I believe that I believe. I think that I believe. No, I do believe! Because I trust the Lord and trust in His Word. So I have a dilemma, I think. There’s a disconnect in my thinking. I have to ask myself, “Anna, do you think that healing is only for the Bible times, for those who lived 2,000 years ago?” Because if that’s what I believe, then the healing I’m praying for in my own body may not take place. I have been suffering from something that the dermatologists say there is no cure for. But I have been praying for healing on a regular basis and have been visiting the site at the bottom of my blog, which I enjoy very much.
So if I believe that healing is mine right now in 2010, then why do I distrust those on TV who claim to have the annointing of God to heal? I know that I have a distrusting spirit sometimes and that may be a hinderance to me. So what should I do about this disconnect? What I can do is to pray to God about it and wait for His answer to me. The Holy Spirit within me will remind me of the things that I have been taught. So I need to start studying God’s Word concerning healing. I can’t say that my mind will change about those so called healers on TV, but who knows?
