God’s Perfect Will Is for You to Be Healed
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” 3 John 1:2
Look no further than 3 John 1:2 for a prayer that reflects God’s heart. That’s how you know that He wants you healed, healthy and never sick, as much as He wants your soul to prosper!
Don’t go by human experiences to know if God wants His people healed today. If you say, “Well, I know of Christians who are sick,” I can point you to many others whom God has healed. We’re not called to base our believing on human experiences. We’re called to believe God’s Word.
Beloved, never put your eyes on people and their experiences, even good ones. The basis of your faith must always be God’s Word. Believe that God still heals today because His Word says so!

Despite the complaints against these so-called health and wealth preachers, here Prince is a perfect textbook example, for how to make God’s revelation your sole epistemology (i.e. sole starting point for knowledge).(I am not saying Prince is perfect in all points of theology in this regard, but in this very common area of everyday living under God’s revelation, he is superior to those who mock him.)
Catholics have their dual epistemology with the Pope. Reformed have their triple epistemology with tradition and even more so with their feelings and experiences (and superstitious conclusions from them). Yet, the so-called back-water health and wealth preachers shame them all with superior philosophy, and having a purer starting point for knowledge, being God’s Revelation. lol ahahahaahhah
