EXCUSE #3, THE PEOPLE WILL NOT BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL
THEM ALL OF THIS. My friends, that's unbelief plain
and simple. Could you imagine that after all of what

and teach thee what thou shalt say."
This is a good verse to ponder when some want to teach
that God is obligated to heal everyone. I wish that
those who teach would teach what God has said. God
