Q. What brought sickness and disease into this world?
A. You already know. Wrong-doin’s did–ours. Yup, sin.
And now there’s officially 70,000 ways to get sick or die….yet Christ can still heal anyone. He is the same yesterday, today, tomorrow, the day after that, and forever (see Hebrews 13:8). What He did in love, He will still do for people until we're home with Him and there is no more need. Put your faith in Him for He is no respecter of persons in the sense that He loves us all the same.
It’s true (Man, why am I all caps here, this non-techy-blogger doesn't even know how to change it away from caps. Hah! Oh well...), but for some people who know the Lord; they wait kinda long and then "catch" if you will.. the ultimate healing when they arrive in heaven. Sure, when they see their Healer face to face. False teachers (even within some quasi Christian churches) will say it's cuz they lack faith or don't give to their so called ministry. Go closely check out the doubting and faith of those healed in the Bible.
Me? I'm not exactly sure why God doesn’t heal all those who ask Him at the time that they ask, but He knows best and does heal some people. #Ask #Seek #Knock
Exodus 23:25 And you shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless your bread, and your water; and I will take sickness away from the middle of you.
Psalms 103:3 Who forgives all your iniquities; who heals all your diseases;
Psalms 107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
Jeremiah 30:17 For I will restore health to you, and I will heal you of your wounds, said the LORD; because they called you an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeks after.
Matthew 4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
Matthew 9:12 But when Jesus heard that, he said to them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely you have received, freely give.
Matthew 14:14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

James 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bore our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live to righteousness: by whose stripes you were healed. (Be sure to look at these verses in their entire context.)
I say, go share the Gospel and pray for people. Jesus did that and He's still our Example.
When your hearers are willing, God will indeed save em and He might even pre-rapture.. heal them. Why? Cuz their concerns are on His heart. He is very concerned about their concerns, cuz He loves them. He loves you!!
