Yes God heals Today!
Jesus Christ healed the sick virtually everywhere he went during his ministry years on earth. Of course there was his hometown where the unbelief of the people somehow managed to reduce (but not eliminate) the number of miracles He did.
Skip forward 2,000 years approx to Celtic Tiger Ireland and guess what - He's still at it through His people and by the power of the Holy Spirit. It was outrageous that He told His friend some day that it'd be better for him to depart so the Promise of the Father, namely the Holy Spirit could come...and come He did at Pentecost! Yes there are still those "home towns of unbelief" i.e. places where His people should know better, yet despite the limitations on miracles brought about by unbelief He can still operate although in a reduced capacity.
Take God at his word I say. Read Isaiah 53 and 1Peter 2:24, learn how He bore sickness as well as sin and how we can gain both benefits by belief. He loves you. Ant
