Job Chapter 15 Discussion

  • Charles Robert Northup - In Reply on Job 15 - 2 years ago
    What some call giving up others call believing God, Jesus is the great Physician but James 5:13Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.14Is 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:" 15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

    Isn't Jesus our only hope?

    King James Version (KJV)

    Question: "Is it still God's will to heal all who ask to be healed as in times past?"


    A man with leprosy came to Jesus and begged Him, If you are willing, you can make me clean. Jesus was filled with compassion. He reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing, he said. "Be clean!" ( Mark 1:40-41).

    He knew that Jesus could heal him, but he asked the same question that most of us ask today, "Will He heal me?"

    The greatest hindrance for many seeking healing is the uncertainty, in their mind, if it is God's will for them to be healed. While most know that God heals a few, they dont have a clear understanding of what the Word says, so they doubt, and doubt Destroys their faith. It is very difficult to have faith when the will of God is unknown. The Bible clearly teaches that healing is provided for all, but it also teaches that faith is required. Not faith that God can, but faith that God WILL heal.

    PSALM 103:3, Psalm 86:5

    Did it say to a few? No, it says to ALL. That he by the grace of God should taste death for every man ( Heb 2:9). Jesus tasted death not just for some, but for everyone who is willing to receive both salvation and healing.

    God has planned good for us and He does not change His mind. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever (Heb13:8). We can pray for ANYONES healing because we know healing is God's will. His Word clearly defined His will for our healing & what we need to do to receive.

    Psalm 107:20

    On earth, Jesus was God in a body but without His Godly power. He operated just as man (us) should operate, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

    Unbelief is so strong that even Jesus was limited by the great unbelief He encountered in His hometown. Mark 6:5

    It doesn't say that He would not, it says He could not, because their great unbelief, limited Him.

    Hello Stephen.

    I hope that a couple of the Scriptures I share here may be of help to those in this quandry of whether to continue with treatment or not. If they are believers, hopefully they will find special grace to bear up & wisdom to know how to proceed. Often, being fully cast upon the Lord for His healing & availing of medical help can go hand-in-hand. I don't think that it's a demonstration of a lack of faith to continue with medical treatment as we trust the Lord for directing the minds & hands of our medical fraternity, and ultimately, it is the Lord Who heals, gives life or takes it away.

    Deuteronomy 31:8; Psalm 34:17-19; Psalm 55:22; Isaiah 40:31; Isaiah 41:10; Matthew 11:28; Luke 1:37; 2 Corinthians 12:9; 1 Peter 5:7.

    Not necessarily a comment but a question. I'm looking for scripture for those who are going thru dialysis. Some groups that I watch about kidney health I wont say who. There is talk about giving up and quitting dialysis. From the comment I saw from others who lost family members shocked me. What scriptures can I go to to help them cope with these feelings of giving up?

    Thank you in advance.

    the book of Job show you that you have to trust in God and have faith on him. He is the one who has all the power and nothing is impossible for him so he give them the choice to follow him or not .

    Job went from running away from God and back into the light, the spirit never left him, he forgot about his self pity, it took a hypocrite to vain words to stir him

    BSP: From John Gill's Exposition of the Bible: ... he trusts none of them with themselves, with the redemption and salvation of their souls, with the regeneration and sanctification of their hearts, and with their preservation to eternal glory; he has put those into the hands of his Son and Spirit...

    Eliphaz falsely stated that Jehovah God has no faith or trust in his holy ones in verse 15. This is entirely false and he was slandering the kind of person God is.

    Thank you to Matthew for all his explanations of Job. Extremely helpful for my understanding of the reading of the book of Job.
