Apostle John was expressing the provision of God for his people.he was simply 'wishing' that we would stand up and posess our good health ,knowing fully well that a healthy body/ is needed for productivity in Life,and you need to be spiritually sound to keep health. Shalom.

Yes i believe. God wants us to believe he wants us to be in good health and our soul prosper but he also want us to have that faith thats going to get us thru when something comes too waiver our faith he only want us to have the grain of a mustard

Most of the time people are more after the material things of this world than the prosperity of their souls

I have no doubt that we would be undermining the huge cost that Christ paid to think that it was payment for anything less than "ALL" and All means ALL-He paid to purchase back everthing that was forfeited at the fall-now it is our responsibility to TAKE it back-How? We walk by Faith not by sight-the moment His promise is sown in our hearts the enemy makes every attempt to steal that good seed. Grace is the soil in which the seed grows-we don't earn what has been already provided we TAKE IT! by faith-it is a gift. Every blessing is a gift-lest any man should boast. The enemy uses guilt, condemnation, distraction, the cares of this world and anything he can to steal the seed. It is our responsibility to guard our heart/seed from all the above-after doing all to stand therefore-STAND!Don't give up-don't forfeit His promise to you of health/prosperity/blessing-Fight the good fight of Faith

Grace's comment on 2013-10-14 01:55:34:
Our God is a merciful God, full of loving kindness and unconditional love for mankind. His every wish for us, is to prosper in ' all things' including a 'totally healthy body mind and soul'. It follows therefore that, an unhealthy body and mind cannot nurture a healthy soul! We must continuously rise above the evil and wickedness of this earth, to preserve our souls fit for his kingdom. That is my understanding of God's desire and passion for us! I, glorify his holy name!

God wants us to enjoy only the best things in life...good health and every other thing that makes us comfortable...Amen.
Margaret's comment on 2013-07-22 10:29:17:
I believe God is strategically encouraging us to pay close attention to His Words because His Words have life. He's not saying that we will all have prosperity and good health, but that is His unfailing desire for us. There are other components, such as, obedience and love involved in getting the prosperity and good health mentioned in 3 John 1:2.
Christy's comment on 2013-05-21 20:44:05:
I think the Lord is wishing us health in all areas of our life, body, soul and mind. It does not matter who said it but every word that is spoken in the bible is by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

John is telling what is right to the man of God to do.
Anthony's comment on 2012-10-11 17:46:12:
In time of persecution this was John's prayer to the new church. Probably reflecting Jesus promise to give life more abundantly.
JAMES CUDJOE-COLE's comment on 2012-08-29 05:11:14:
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
Mike's comment on 2012-07-22 22:45:36:
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?
JEAN's comment on 2011-08-28 07:46:15:
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
