What is the will of God?


What is the will of God? On earth as it is in heaven. If it doesn’t exist there, it’s not supposed to exist here. If it does exist there, it’s supposed to exist here.” - Bill Johnson

I think that kind of answers whether sickness and other tumultuous things that happen on this fallen world are actually God's will or not. It surprises me that so many can't tell the difference between what is of God and what is of the enemy.

When heaven looks like earth then maybe we can attribute what happens on earth to God, but maybe the better idea is making earth look like heaven as we are supposed to be doing.

That requires us to actually heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy, cast out demons, calm storms, share Love, extend Grace. How much of that does modern Christianity actually do?

As the early church walked in miracles, signs, and wonders, modern Christianity walks in protest, debate, judgment, and arguments. Is that really what Christ had in mind for His body?

We spend so much time trying to be the world's policemen that we forget we are supposed to be nurses (Mark 2:17). Maybe we should give that a shot?
