How do you know God has given you the gift of laying on of hands
Do God have to come to you in a vision for you to have permission to laying hands on the sick and cast out demons
The Bible never mentions a gift called 'Laying on of Hands'. The term is used in a couple of cases. Hands are 'layed on' to pray for healing (either physical/mental or demonic possession) or to commission a minister or missionary to carry out his calling.
With this in mind, I will answer a modified question: How do you know if you have the Gifts of Healing?
If you are a born again Christian, and baptized in the Holy Spirit, God may choose to impart to you that gift. If you experience God working healings through you (be clear that it is never a human that works a miraculous healing), you clearly have that gift. It may or may not be long-term.
Glendower: I can call spirits from the vasty deep.
Hotspur: Why, so can I, or so can any man
But will they come when you do call for them?
Henry IV, Part 1
Some people know when they have a gift, When we are done we see the result, and it happens only with the works of God.
Right before Jesus ascension, He told His disciples to carry this tradition on into the future. Mark 16:17-18 "These signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won't hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick and heal them." THOSE WHO BELIEVE!

If all men justly deserve endless punishment, will not those who are saved, be saved unjustly?If eternal punishment is just, then saving those who still deserve eternal torture is unjust?

Everyone keeps talking about heaven and hell, and I honestly don't believe the average Christian understands the insanity of this belief, so I thought it might be helpful to share the numbers.Statistics show that an average of 56,597,034 people die worldwide every year. With 33% of the world...

Without delving into a lot of deep studying on the origins of words, I'll make a suggestion. Could it be that Jesus was redefining what God is when He called Himself the Son of Man?THink about it: He often referred to God as His Father, right? And then He refers to Himself as the Son of Man....

I struggle with Calvinism. When I meet Calvinists though, I can't help but see Jesus!I struggle with Calvinism because of the predetermination. I believe in free will BUT Calvinism believes God has chosen whom he has chosen out of grace. But that leads to my question, where is the...

If a hospital was built that only offered prayer, how would those who believe in prayer respond?Would they be faithful, and go, or would they be forced to use their reason, and seek REAL modern medical cures and treatment? But, then, what would this say about their faith?
