Now that's odd. Why would God instruct us to seek out the elders and have us rely upon prayer when we are sick if He is required to always heal us? If it was only a matter of renewing the yes in our heart, prayer would not be needed at all. That is all you really need to understand about Shawn Bolz and Bethel. They are teaching you that it is all up to you. The Bible teaches it is all about Him. We pray because God is sovereign and He alone has the power to heal. We seek the elders so we know who is praying over us. This is no small point beloved. Do not let anyone lay their hands on you if you do not know them and what spirit they traffic in! There are other spirits besides the Holy Spirit and do not assume the church conveys assurance. I have known pastors I would never let pray over me. Would you allow Shawn Bolz to pray over you and lay his hands upon you? Joel Osteen? Rick Warren? No thank you.

"In the midst of suffering it is hard to pray with full faith, but I pray the prophetic prayer of David in Psalms for you: "O Lord, my healing God, I cried out for a miracle and you healed me! You brought me back from the brink of death, from the depths below. Now here I am, alive and well, fully restored!" (Ps. 30:2--3. TPT)." -- Shawn Bolz

Beloved. Psalm 30:2-3 is not a prophetic prayer. David cried out for a miracle and God healed him; not you. This cherry picking of Scripture is so deceitful. Let us turn to another time David was praying for healing:


And the Lord afflicted the child that Uriah's wife bore to David, and he became sick.David therefore sought God on behalf of the child. And David fasted and went in and lay all night on the ground.And the elders of his house stood beside him, to raise him from the ground, but he would not, nor did he eat food with them.On the seventh day the child died. And the servants of David were afraid to tell him that the child was dead, for they said, "Behold, while the child was yet alive, we spoke to him, and he did not listen to us. How then can we say to him the child is dead? He may do himself some harm."But when David saw that his servants were whispering together, David understood that the child was dead. And David said to his servants, "Is the child dead?" They said, "He is dead."-- 2Samuel 12: 15-19 (ESV)


The child was born out of the lust and murder in David's heart. The Bible says that God struck the child with the illness. David did not try to renew the yes in his heart. He prayed and fasted that God might be merciful and spare the life of the child. In His sovereignty, God said no and the child died. Did you get that beloved? God said no. Bolz is right that it is tremendously difficult to pray in full faith when we are facing our own mortality or the mortality of a loved one. That is why it is doubly wrong to further that suffering by saying things on behalf of God that He never said. Bolz finishes:


"Cry out and personalize it like David: My healing God, I cry out for a miracle. Come heal me. Bring me back from the brink of death. Give me life, wellness and restoration! Your breakthrough is coming. I am so sorry you are facing this, and we are praying with you!" -- Shawn Bolz


Yeah, personalizing it will not make it biblical either. If you were truly sorry Shawn, you would stop misrepresenting God, falsely teaching, and pretending to be a prophet. Beloved, the first thing we must do is rejoice in our salvation, which promises life beyond this glimmer on earth. Secondly, we must realize that as part of the fall of man, sin and disease entered the perfect creation. Third, never forget that God can heal but He is also sovereign. Will you serve Him if the answer is no? The healing He purchased for us on the cross was our spiritual healing to reconcile us to God. Is that enough for us? Do not be distracted or discouraged by hucksters such as Shawn Bolz. He turns prophecy into clairvoyance and healing into an internal switch we all have control of and by doing so he makes a mockery of both. His god is his belly. He serves the master of this world. Mark him for the division he brings into the body of Christ like a cancer. Pray that God heals us of this cancer before He returns. If not, relax in the blessed assurance we have that transcends this life. In Jesus name, amen.
