John is telling what is right to the man of God to do.

In time of persecution this was John's prayer to the new church. Probably reflecting Jesus promise to give life more abundantly.

upon studying this, i think John was just sharing his feeling to the bretheren cos i believe God has no limitation therefore can not wish.thanks

I think this is John's greeting. Isn't suffering how our soal grows and is sculpted. If we are unhealthy, are we unworthy, or lack in faith? Can anyone translate this as God promising all of us that we will not be subject to health and financial trials if our faith is great. Faith is strong but we still need perseverance through trials so we are not lacking anything, right?

I BELIEVE THE LORD WANT US TO PROSPER BE HEALTHY BUT MOST OF ALL HE WANT US TO GROW SPIRITUALLY AS WELL; THE GROWTH OF OUR SOUL (SPIRIT MAN) DETERMINE HOW HEALTHY AND WEALTHY WE BECOME
