But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
1 Corinthians 15:20
I have a friend who believes that you should not speak with your mouth that you are sick or have a problem because that confirms it and it will be so. She says to pray for healing and start saying that you are well even though the symptoms are still there. She says that it may take a few days for the healing to take place but that God will heal you if you have faith and continue to claim the healing. I always think of God healing someone instantly and completely not over a period of time. I am wrong in my thinking? Does God sometimes heal gradually?
My question this morning has to do with the parable in Matthew 20:1-16, the Laborers in the Vineyard. Mathew 20:16 says “So the last shall be first, and the first last.” Is this talking about the Gentiles being accepted first, then the Jews into the Kingdom of God?
In one of your articles you said you believe Satan’s fall occurred between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2, causing a judgment that ruined Earth, and the six day creation account really begins in Genesis 1:3. But in Exodus 20:11 God said He made the heavens and the Earth, the sea and all that’s in them in six days. It looks to me like this contradicts your opinion. Would you care to explain this?
