Does God still heal today? Do miracles happen the way they did in the First Century? Does God want everyone to be healed?
We are instructed to test everything by Scripture and hold fast to what is good--and the subject of Divine healing is one of those things. The doctrine behind "positive confession" teaches that words claim a healing--sickness disappears if we confess it is gone. It teaches that faith spoken outloud causes a positive outcome and negative words prevent healing and demonstrate a lack of faith. But what does the Bible say? When we test this position by Scripture, does it prove to be true? And if it is in error, does this mean God doesn't heal at all today?
Walter Martin examines the truth behind the use and abuse of healing...on Night Watch.
