Have you prayed for healing for yourself or a loved one? Did the healing fail to manifest? God is big and there could be many reasons the Healing didn’t happen. I believe Jesus gave us one of the reasons:
Then He began to denounce [the people in] the cities in which most of His miracles were done, because they did not repent [and change their hearts and lives]. (Matthew 11:20)Jesus healed ALL who were sick and oppressed by the Devil. This was done for a reason: so that people would see God’s goodness and turn toward Him to learn His ways. In the Book of Matthew, our Lord continues, showing what will happen if a healing doesn’t result in our turning toward God and away from sin:
"Woe (judgment is coming) to you… for if the miracles done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom on the day of judgment, than for you." (Matthew 11:21-24)If we experience a miracle and do not turn from our sin, it brings judgment upon us. Is it a kindness to heal someone’s body when you know they intend to go on in sin? This will bring greater judgement later on.
I knew a man, a deliverance minister. He cast demons out of all sorts of people that were manifesting dramatically the demons within. This was a godly man who was called as a pastor, he knew God’s power.
His wife was sick with cancer for many years. They prayed in agreement, commanded the cancer to go, and declared healing. Despite this, his wife died.
During the years of their marriage, the wife was very disrespectful, even mockingly so, of her godly husband. Could this sin still have been in her heart? The word “confess” our sins means to see things the way God does. Did she ever really see her treatment of her husband the way God did?
I wasn’t there, so I don’t know. Even if I was, would I know the woman’s heart? This is between her and God, but perhaps the words of our Lord may shed some light why some prayers for healing are answered and some are not.
This is why God gives every child of God access to His throne room where we can come into His courtrooms. It is here that we can hear any accusations the enemy has against us. We can find out if there is a sin attached to a sickness or other issues in our life.

Believers' Boot Camp series
Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
- Knowing what weapons are available
- Learning how to use those weapons
- Receiving orders and following them
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father.
The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.
