Healing and God's Glory

Dead religion says that God wants to be glorified through your patience of suffering of sickness.
The bible has something completely different to say about how God is glorified in your body. Letís see exactly what gives God the glory amongst man.

John 2 v 11 (nkjv), This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.

John 11 v 4, Jesus equated seeing Lazarus raised from the dead, with seeing the glory of God.

Matthew 9 v 8, Jesus forgave and healed a paralyzed man; the multitude saw it, marveled and glorified God.
Matthew 15 v 31, So the multitude marveled when they saw the mute speaking, the maimed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.

Luke 7 v 15, Jesus raises the son of the widow of Nain.
v 16, Then fear came upon all, and they glorified God, saying "A great prophet has risen amongst us"; and God has visited His people.

Luke 13 v 13, A woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years.
And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
She glorified God over her healing. There is no mention that she ever glorified God for the privilege of staying sick for eighteen years bound by satan.

Luke 17, The ten lepers cleansed.
v 15, And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God. God is glorified through the healing of incurable illnesses.

Acts 4, The healing of the cripple beggar at the gate called Beautiful.
v 21, All the people glorified God for what has been done. They did not glorify God for the man''s endurance of him being handicap. This miracle was done through Peter and John.

John 14 v 13, The Father is glorified in the Son when we ask for something to be done, in the Name of Christ Jesus and when Jesus does it.

2 Corinthians 1 v 20, For the promises of God in Him (Christ Jesus) are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.

God's Glory filling the earth in these days

Isaiah 40 v 5, The glory of the Lord shall be revealed. And all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it.

The interpretation from the Strong's concordance = chabod. Is God's glory, not only His honor, renown, and majesty, but also His visible splendour, which filled Solomon's temple.

Isaiah 60 v 1, Arise shine, for your light has come. And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
Habakkuk 2 v 14, For the earth will be filled. With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord. As the waters cover the earth.

The Glory of God should be manifested more under the New Covenant, than it did under the Old Covenant, if God's glory is going to fill the earth. We should expect God's healing mercy to overrun the earth.
We should expect signs wonders and miracles NOW.
There are many ways that God receives glory.
He was glorified for many other seasons in scripture, but never because someone remained sick and suffering.
There are many books written about patiently remaining sick is the way to glorify God.
Is it a tool of the enemy to keep people ignorant or for financial gain by some?

Psalm 50 v 15, Call upon me in the day of trouble. I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.

The church is a mystery, and can only be defined by revelation of the Holy Spirit; we cannot define it by some philosophical or intellectual approach.
Healing encompasses God's power to restore, broken hearts, broken homes, broken lives and broken bodies.
I believe its God's will to restore New Testament patterns to His church.

Lets keep in mind that, God is available and accessible.
