By constant meditation and confession of God’s word I received healing and I am still healed.

Frank, you DO realize that your formula is actually witchcraft, right?

Say the right words, do the right things, focus the power, and get the results. In Bath, England, they have found both Roman AND CHRISTIAN spells (defixiones) that were used for healing. The Christian ones contain Bible verses or prayers to Christ and meditation was a common element of the ritual.

Wow. just wow. Your ‘formula’ puts all the focus on you. Now lets examine your ‘formula’ in light of Scripture, does the Bible tell us to meditate and recite the Bible when we are sick??? NO.

James 5:14 states - Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.

We are to call upon other believers to annoint us and pray for us, it isn’t about us, it is about God, He heals us if it is HIS will regardless of what we do.

Also - Isaiah 53:5 is talking about our SPIRITUAL healing by the wounds (shed blood of Christ). It is not talking about physical healing.

I don’t about YOUR God, but my God doesn’t need my rites and rituals to heal (calling on the elders and anointing is not even necessary but rather an act of faith and community).

Go pedal your pagan heresies elsewhere.

reaganaut James 5:14 is one way of receiving healing for instance Acts 3:6 Peter told the man to rise and walk in the name of Jesus. Acts 19:11 they took cloth items from the body of Paul and they healed people. In another instance Acts 5:15,16 Peter’s shadow healed people. So you just can’t say that James 5:15 is the only way to receive healing. And also healing is God’s will as He said in 3John 1:2. And Jesus even said on several occasions According to your faith and not according to my will. And if you think meditation is witchcraft, God told Joshua This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but thou shalt meditate therein day and night (Joshua 1:8). So just because you say meditate that does not make it witchcraft. And I do not put the focus on me I put all the focus on God’s word not on me. And Isaiah 53:5 is talking about physical healing look at Matthew 8:16,17. So before you make such comments you should make sure you are well informed first.
