And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, THERE CAME A VIPER out of the heat, AND FASTENED ON HIS HAND. And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, NO DOUBT THIS MAN IS A MURDERER, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, YET VENGEANCE SUFFERETH NOT TO LIVE. And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm. Howbeit they looked when HE SHOULD HAVE SWOLLEN, or fallen down DEAD suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, THEY changed their minds, and SAID that HE WAS A GOD. In the same quarters were possessions of the chief man of the island, whose name was PUBLIUS; who received us, and lodged us three days courteously. And it came to pass, that the FATHER of Publius LAY SICK OF A FEVER and of a bloody flux: to whom PAUL ENTERED IN, AND PRAYED, and laid his hands on him, AND HEALED HIM. So when this was done, OTHERS ALSO, which had diseases in the island, came, and WERE HEALED: Acts 28:3-9. Paul is a real pain in the butt. The world hates him, yet when they see God Almighty working through him and healing ALL people with disease and problems, they can't deny that he IS a man of God. NO ONE cares about his title of Prisoner, where he came from, or which church he was a member of. All they cared about was that his God came into their midst AND HE HEALED ALL WHO ASKED. It's hard to hate a man who healed all your family to Perfect health. Paul always said a prayer and got down to The Lords Business. Today, generally, almost no one truly Heals people OF ALL DISEASES. Again, without Faith, physical Healings don't happen. SO MAN HAS TO RESORT TO SELECTIVE TRICKERY TO TRY TO FOOL ENOUGH PEOPLE TO BANKROLL THEIR "MINISTRY". The day is soon coming when, maybe even you, will walk in True Faith and Real Obedience to the Holy Spirit, AND SIMPLY HEAL PEOPLE. That's one way God gets people’s attention, for them to, Be Blessed.
