Then why are we not raising the dead here?Giving sight to the blind here?Removing demons here?Other than the fakes on tv?Walk with me to a hospital and heal those within.Or is it here,,we have no faith?
I think you’ve hit on it - at least to some extent. In my experience God works within the framework of one’s understanding (i.e. He meets them where they are.) Those in other countries have very real, palpable experiences with demonic powers. They truly NEED deliverance from them. Not every illness or physical ailment is demonic. God has said “It is appointed unto man once to die and after that the judgment.” Death is not optional. Barring His return first, all flesh will die. While physical healing is wonderful in and of itself (and miraculous healing DOES occur, but most often the physician or medicine gets the credit), the point in this story is that this girl was rid of a demon and came to Christ. It is eternal redemption which concerns God more. She could not come to Christ AND have a demon within her. One precludes the other.
Because faith comes by hearing. Are miracles, signs and wonders, and the power of God by the Holy Spirit still being taught in America's churches? We are a technological and skeptical nation. This has crept into the churches.
Jesus Himself could do no miracles when he came back to Nazareth because of their unbelief. How can we expect to do better than Him when there is little faith?
