II prayed for Nabeel every day for over a year...often many times a day. I prayed for him, his family, his ministry. I really believed that God would heal Nabeel of his cancer. What an amazing opportunity for God to glorify His name. Here was a young man honestly dealing with his faith, diagnosis, and struggles in a public forum for all to see. I was sure that God would honor that and heal him in a way skeptics couldn't easily deny. I was so sure his healing would become a tool I could use in outreach.
When he died on Sep. 16, 2017 I was caught off-guard. I know that God is sovereign, like Nabeel I believe God's will is to heal, so what happened. As I asked myself this and wrestled with it for a few days I came to realize God is wiser than me. His healing would have been a great testimony, but many would have dismissed it as a medical or biological fluke. Instead Nabeel has left us with a powerful testimony of a life well lived and a record of a man who honored his Savior and Lord until the very end. He left us a legacy, much like Job, a way to talk about and understand the problem of suffering without being acedemic or removed. He lived it....and ultimatly it killed him, but Nabeel never turned away from God.
I have included a link the the OYWV study "Nabeel's Journey" that we have used in our small group. Additionally, I have included two video links. David woods has a great video about his friend Nabeel and Dr. Brown spends about an hour discussing miraculous healing.
I believe that no matter what worldview we espouse we should understand what we believe any why. I hope to show others that the Christian worldview is not only accurate but true. If not, I hope they will be clear on why they reject it.
