A Better Way to Pray (Andrew Wommack)

1

Decades ago, I was participating in an all-night prayer meeting bombarding the gates of heaven. I remember beating the wall and yelling, “God, if You loved the people in Arlington, Texas, half as much as I do, we’d have revival!” Immediately, my lightning-fast mind realized that something was seriously wrong with my theology. What was I thinking?

Did I really believe I loved these people more than God did? No, not exactly. Like many Christians, I believed God was angry with the human condition, and it was up to me to turn Him from wrath and judgment. I was interceding, or so I thought, pleading with God on the behalf of others. What could possibly be wrong with that? As I learned later, a lot.

The things the Lord has revealed to me about prayer since then have totally changed my life, and I’m now seeing miraculous results. If you aren’t getting the results you know the Lord wants you to have, maybe it’s time to consider a better way to pray. I’m not saying that anyone who doesn’t pray as I do is “of the devil.” I wasn’t “of the devil” in the way I used to pray. I loved God with all my heart, and the Lord loved me. But the results weren’t there.

First, we need to recognize that God isn’t angry at mankind anymore. He is no longer imputing or holding our sins against us.

“God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation” (2 Cor. 5:19).

We are NOW reconciled to God through Jesus. That means we are in harmony and are friendly with God right now. He isn’t mad; He’s not even in a bad mood. The war between God and man is over. That’s what the angels proclaimed at the birth of Jesus.

Luke 2:14 says,

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

These angels weren’t saying that peace would reign on earth and that wars between people would cease. That certainly hasn’t happened. They were proclaiming the end of war between God and man. Jesus paid a price that was infinitely greater than the sins of the whole human race.

God’s wrath and justice have been satisfied. Jesus changed everything. God isn’t angry. His mercy extends to all people. He loves the world, not just the church, but the whole world. He paid for all sin.

The Scriptures say in 1 John 2:2,

“And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.”

In the Old Testament, God’s judgment was poured out on both individuals and nations. In the New Testament, God’s judgment was poured out on Jesus. That is the nearly-too-good-to-be-true news of the Gospel. We no longer get what we deserve; we get what Jesus paid the price for, if we will only believe.

Before I understood this, I would say, “If God doesn’t judge America, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” Now I say, “If God judges America, He will have to apologize to Jesus.” Understanding what Jesus did completely changes our perspective.

Second, Jesus is now the Mediator. A mediator is one who seeks to reconcile, or make peace between, two opposing parties. In the Old Testament, man had not yet been reconciled to God through Jesus. The people needed a mediator, someone to intercede with God on their behalf. That is where we find people like Abraham and Moses pleading with God.

In Genesis 18:23-25, Abraham interceded with God on behalf of Sodom and Gomorrah:

“Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”

In fact, Abraham actually negotiated with God until He agreed not to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah for the sake of ten righteous people. But there weren’t ten righteous people in the whole city, and only some of Lot’s family survived. A similar account is recorded in Exodus 32:9-12 and 14. Here God was furious with the people, and Moses interceded for them:

“The LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people: Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation. And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand? Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people…And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.”

Moses actually told God, “Repent!” What nerve! What’s more amazing is that God repented. From these and other stories in the Old Testament, modern-day “intercessors” believe we, too, must stand in the gap, or mediate, between God and man. Just as I did decades ago, they believe we must plead with God to save the lost, to withhold His wrath from those He is ready to judge, and to be merciful to those whose needs He is unwilling to meet because of their unworthiness.

That couldn’t be further from the truth, but it is what’s being taught in many churches today. It ignores the fact that Jesus is now seated at the right hand of the Father (Heb. 10:12), ever making intercession for us (Heb. 7:25). If Moses or Abraham could persuade God, don’t you think Jesus could do at least as well?

In 1 Timothy 2:5, we read,

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”

In the New Covenant, Jesus is the ONLY mediator needed to stand between God the Father and mankind. Sin is no longer a problem with God; it’s been atoned for, and we are now the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. That is how God sees us. If we understand that, it will change the way we pray.

It was appropriate for Abraham and Moses to pray as they did because God’s wrath had not yet been appeased through Jesus. Today, under the New Covenant, if people try to mediate in that way, they are actually antichrist—against Christ. They are saying that Jesus was not enough and are not esteeming what Christ has done. When Jesus became our Mediator, He put all other mediators out of business—forever. I know these words are strong, but they are the truth.

Satan is behind much of the wrong teaching on “prayer.” Consider how crafty his plan is and the fruit it produces. He has convinced believers to stay in their closets, taking the place of Jesus in intercession. They spend hours pleading with God to turn from His wrath, to pour out His Spirit, and to meet the needs of the people.

Meanwhile, families, coworkers, and neighbors are going to hell and dying from disease. The Bible doesn’t say that salvation comes through intercession, but by the foolishness of preaching (1 Cor. 1:21). And we are not told to pray for the sick, but to heal the sick (Matt. 10:8) by commanding healing into their broken bodies.

We have been deceived into believing prayer is all about persuading God to release His power. We believe He can save, heal, and deliver but that He is waiting on us to shape up and earn it. The truth is, we don’t deserve it, and we will never be good enough. Because of Jesus, all that God has is ours. That’s good news. We no longer need to beg or plead; we need to exercise the authority He has given us and receive His blessings.

There really is a better way to pray. I am not saying it’s the only way, but it is working for me. I have only touched on this subject in this letter, so I encourage you to order my book, A Better Way to Pray.

This message is also available in a CD or DVD album. In the book and albums, I talk about the primary purpose of prayer; the importance of speaking to your mountain about God, not to God about your mountain; the process of prayer; and I reveal many of the misconceptions about prayer.

These truths have changed the way I pray and the results I get. More importantly, I believe they could revolutionize the body of Christ. I pray that you will take advantage of these truths and help me share them with others. To order, go to our website atwww.awmi.net or call the Helpline at 719-635-1111.

Romans 2.10

0

Romans 2.10

but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

Do you want to know what heaven will be like? Do you want to know how good it is going to be?

Firstly, as a Christian the Lord has removed your sins from you as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103.12). Our judgment day will never include judgment for any of our sins (Isaiah 54.7-8) because Jesus was made sin so we could be made righteous (2 Cor. 5.21).

However, we will be paid for what we have done in this body. Every time we serve God, every time we give someone a glass of water, every time we tell someone the gospel, every time we pray for a friend, every time we say something encouraging, every tongues message, every prophecy, every time you lay hands on someone – God rewards you for that. And all those rewards are being stocked up in heaven for you for when you get there.

In Romans 2.10 Paul sums up this heavenly reward with three beautiful words: glory, honour and peace.

Heaven for the Christian is a place for glory, honour and peace.

Glory means brightness, and specifically the brightness of God. Have you ever been in prayer, or maybe listening to a powerful sermon and you have in your spirit simply sensed the brightness and the beauty and the weight of God? That is the glory of God. Some people have seen it as a cloud, but it is actually invisible – the cloud is simply the manifestation of the glory. You can have the glory in the room and there be nothing to see in the natural, but if you are spiritually in tune you will know it is there.

That is what heaven is going to be like for us, but a million times more. It is going to literally be glorious. You will be bathed in the presence of God and His brightness and intensity. And the more works you do on earth, the brighter that glory will be when you get to heaven.

Honour is your rank. This is not a popular teaching at the moment in our nations which are leaning towards socialism (remember Animal Farm? all men are equal?) but the fact is God operates a kingdom not a democracy. Within the kingdom, some people are of a higher rank than others. They are not more valuable, but they have a different and more important role. In heaven when you meet people who have done mighty exploits on earth – people who have endured torture, people who have changed nations, people who have faithfully put out flowers in their church week after week – you will naturally through your redeemed and non-self-seeking heart show them the respect and reverence they are due. And when people meet you they will show you the respect you are due.

One of the most beautiful things about heaven is that we will all receive the respect and honour for what we have done. On earth, we are not respected for what we do – in fact, by the world we are despised and persecuted. I read an article recently about a Christan couple whose daughter was raped. They told a journalist that they forgave the rapist and he tore strips off them for daring to say such a thing. Yet in heaven when we meet this couple we will show them respect as the honour for their action will be on them and around them. As we perceive it, we will naturally show them their due respect. What a wonderful place! What a wonderful time!

Peace is the Greek word eirene. I am just going to let you see Strong’s definition of this word as I doubt anything I say could improve on this:

1) a state of national tranquillity
a) exemption from the rage and havoc of war
2) peace between individuals, i.e. harmony, concord
3) security, safety, prosperity, felicity, (because peace and harmony make and keep things safe and prosperous)
4) of the Messiah’s peace
a) the way that leads to peace (salvation)
5) of Christianity, the tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and content with its earthly lot, of whatsoever sort that is
6) the blessed state of devout and upright men after death

In heaven you will have total tranquility, no rage, no war. There will be no one in heaven you are in disharmony with, that you owe something to, that you feel uncomfortable around. You will be secure, safe and prosperous.

Now think on this: all you have to do is one good deed today and when you die you will enter an eternity with more glory, honour and peace than what it would otherwise be. If that does not inspire you to go and do something wonderful for someone, I do not know what will.

Will We Know Each Other In Heaven? (David Reagan)

Will We Know Each Other in Heaven?

David Reagan

By David Reagan

Yes, definitely.

We are told that we will have glorified bodies like the one that Jesus had after His resurrection (Philippians 3:21). Once the disciples got over the shock of His resurrection, they easily recognized Jesus whenever He appeared to them (John 21:1-7). In like manner, the disciples recognized Moses and Elijah when they appeared at the transfiguration of Jesus (Matthew 17:1-5).

We do not become non-entities at death. We retain our individuality and personality. God constantly refers to Himself as “the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob” long after their deaths. His fellowship with them is obviously continuing in Heaven (Luke 20:37-38).

10 Reasons God Wants YOU Well…

1

10.  The Bible says that His Name is Healer (Exodus 15.26) – it is important to God that He is always faithful to His name.

9. Jesus wants us to enjoy life in abundance, and if you are sick you cannot be living life to the full. (John 10.10)

8. God created Adam sickness free and declared that it was good that man was healthy (Genesis 1.26ff)

7. In heaven there is no sickness (Revelation 21.4), and we are told to pray for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matt. 7)

6. In Deuteronomy 28, sickness is a curse and health is a blessing and Galatians 3.13-14 says we are totally set free from the curse and we have the blessing.  Sickness has not suddenly moved to the blessing side!

5. Jesus said healing is the children’s bread (Matt. 15.22-28), and we are the children of God (John 1.12)

4. Jesus went around healing the sick and doing good (Acts 10.38) and Jesus has not changed (Hebrews 13.8)

3. Jesus Christ carried our sicknesses and our diseases on the cross (Matt. 8.16-17) and we should not carry something that He carried for us.

2. Six one syllable words that it would take someone to help you misunderstand and misinterpret their plain and simple meaning: By His Stripes, We Were Healed (1 Peter 2.24)

1. The number one reason I know God wants you well is that you are beloved of the Father, and if you ask your Father for bread He will not give you a stone (Luke 11.11).  It is that simple: God loves you as a Father and every Father would want their child to be well.  That is just a fraction of how much God wants you to be well.

All you have to do is believe and receive (Mark 11.23-24) and you can enjoy divine health for the rest of your life.

Glory and freedom,

Benjamin

Frances Hunter Is Rejoicing in Heaven

0

source: http://www.cfhunter.org/

Frances Eileen Hunter was born May 8, 1916 in a small town in Illinois at a whopping 2 pounds, placed in a shoe box and not expected to live for an hour much less 93 years. She is survived by her spouse of 39 years, Charles Hunter (88).
 
     Together, she and Charles have authored over 65 books. Millions of copies have been given away and sold during the 40 years of their anointed healing ministry. Many of these books have been translated into major languages of the world.  Charles and Frances, better known as “The Happy Hunters”, cheerfully ministered all across the USA as well as in 49 foreign countries. They are considered “Mom” and “Dad” to all the spiritual children they have birthed around the globe.  In addition, many miracle babies were named Charles or Frances because Frances had a special anointing when she prayed for couples who wanted children.

     At 93, she still kept the office hopping with new creative ways to bring more unsaved people into His kingdom as well as how to get everyone healed from illness and out of bondage. She went into her office every day and church every Sunday. Once a month, they held meetings at their headquarters in Kingwood, TX. Twice a year they held three day seminars which ended with an ordination service. They have ordained hundreds of anointed servants into ongoing ministries for the Kingdom. 
 
     Frances has 2 children, 9 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Her son, Thomas Steder is retired and lives in Florida. Tom has 5 children: Brant, Wayne, Kimberly, David and Jennifer. Brant and Trish have 4 children, 3 girls and a son. Wayne has 2 children, Trevor and Laura. David has a daughter, Madison. Jennifer and Michael have a son, Evan. 

     Frances’ daughter, Joan Eileen Hunter Murrell lives in Pinehurst, TX and is married to Kelley Murrell. She has 4 daughters:  Charity, Spice, Melody and Abigail and 2 sons-in-law – Nathan and Ted.  Ted and Charity have 2 children, Luke and Kate Eileen. Two more great grandchildren are on the way later this year through Spice and Charity. 

 

     Charles and Frances have lived enough for 50 people and seen more miracles within one week of their ministry than most witness in a lifetime. Countless thousands have been saved, healed and filled with the Holy Spirit through their ministry. Many thousands have been trained to heal the sick, thus multiplying the healing message like liquid gold spreading across the globe.

     Two obedient people with hearts sold out to God listened to their heavenly Father and spread His word, His grace, His mercy, and His healing power wherever they went. Their zeal for everything God had to offer was contagious. Everyone who met them or heard them speak was forever changed. The anointed books, videos, audios and teachings that they imparted into the Body of Christ will go on forever and are still available at their office.

  
     Frances, in anticipation of this day, expressed her wishes that no flowers be sent upon her passing.  Rather, she asked that memorial gifts be made to ensure that the world-changing work of Hunter Ministries will remain active in the years to come.  Frances, and her beloved Charles, made bringing glory and honor to Jesus, their life’s work.  Though Frances has gone today to be with her Lord, her legacy remains.
     Memorial services are tentatively scheduled to be held in Houston, TX on Monday, August 3, 2009 at a location to be determined.  Call the Hunter Ministries office 281-358-7575 or 4 Corners Ministries office at 281-789-7500 for update information or check the websites at: www.cfhunter.org or www.joanhunter.org

The Lord Has an Army: The Church Will Not Grow Weaker and Weaker… (Kenneth Hagin Prophecy)

4

The following prophecy was given by Kenneth E. Hagin on February 17, 1975:

 

And knew ye this, that the Lord has an army. Yea, He is preparing His own. No! The

church will not grow weaker and weaker and weaker and lie down and expire.

But she shall grow stronger and stronger and stronger for a fresh visitation of heaven is at hand. Yea, a new revelation of truth shall burst forth in all of its glory unto those who are called by His Name.

And they shall realize that in their grasp, in their hand all the while, was that mighty Name that is above every name. And they, with that Name upon their lips and with faith in their hearts, will speak forth unto the enemy and say, “Thus far shall ye go and no further.” And he shall desist in his maneuvers, and stop in his operations.

And the hand of the enemy shall be stayed. And the harvest that is to be reaped shall be reaped. For the harvest is plenteous, and the laborers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the Harvest to send forth laborers into His harvest.

And so men, yea, if you please. Some would call them a “NEW BREED,” shall rise up and go forth. They shall not be afraid of the devil. They shall have no fear of men but with boldness shall they speak and shall challenge the very strongholds of the devil.

And there shall be a great shaking. But those who are settled in upon the Rock of Ages, shall stand and shout above the storm. And see above the darkness the might of God breaking on the horizon of time and they shall be reflectors of that Light that shall shine forth into the darkness.

And the blinded eyes of Satan’s kin shall be opened by men. Men inspired by God,

equipped by the Spirit, called by the Lord. Set in the Body of Christ to shine, to testify, to preach, to minister.

And so like a giant that Body shall rise, shall shake off those things which would hinder and break asunder the bonds of tradition and religion that has them bound.

And go forth with the pure revelation of truth that’ll cause the lame to leap for joy. And the Blind to see both spiritually and physically. And there shall sound throughout the land the cry and the hue of “Hosanna to the Lord! Hallelujah! Great is His Name and greatly to be praised.”

And the last soul shall have been won. And the last spirit shall have been saved. And that Body shall have been completed. And then the cry shall come forth, “Behold the Bridegroom cometh. Go ye out to meet Him.”

And in the ages to come, eons upon eons, that Body of believers shall show forth His glory and majesty forever and forever.

A Response to a video about terminal cancer.

1

I was on a Christian forum today when someone posted a link to a video of the testimony to a girl dying of cancer.  The girl thinks that it is God’s will she dies of cancer, and that the cancer will bring about much good.

The poster posting the link I assume agrees with this line of thinking.  I watched most of the video and decided to give a Biblical response to it.  I wanted to share what I said as I have covered most of the main objections to the truth that God will heal anyone at anytime if they would just receive it.  I do not recommend that anyone watches the video as it is not founded on the Word of God and will not build your faith.  However I have left the link for completeness’ sake.

May the Lord open this young lady’s eyes to the truth that she is already healed due to the redemptive work of Christ.  Amen!
Blessings,

Benjamin


This fellow sister in Christ has terminal cancer. Watch the video and think about (and possibly even respond) to the questions:

Death is Not Dying Event Video

(1) Does she lack faith?

Well it was obvious to anyone watching the video that she does not believe at all that Jesus Christ bore her sicknesses and carried her diseases, that He heals all our diseases, that you can have anything you ask in prayer, that by His stripes she was healed, that God’s Word is health to all her flesh, that she is completely redeemed from the curse of the law.

So if your question about faith is about the faith that Jesus asked the blind men if they had when He said “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”, the faith that when Jesus healed the blind men said “According to your faith be it done unto you” (Matthew 9), then the answer is no.

She said so clearly in the video that she does NOT believe that God would heal her, and that to believe that God would heal her would be sin to her.  So to then say she clearly has faith for healing would be to contradict her testimony.  She has traditions that make the Word of God to no effect which is why she is not healed.

(2) Has she done something wrong that brought this cancer on her?

No.  Well I guess not, I don’t know about her diet or whether she was a chain smoker or drug user.  I don’t know if the thing that she greatly feared came upon her because I don’t know the thoughts and intents of her heart.  I am giving her the benefit of the doubt – most people get sick because we live in a sin-cursed world.

Unless of course you count the fact that she failed to fellowship with a group of people who would have taught her that Jesus Christ is the LORD our Healer, and that we can receive the healing that He purchased for us with His stripes freely by faith in His Word something wrong.  I would call it ignorant, I wouldn’t call it something wrong in a moral sense.

(3) Is God using her terminal cancer to teach her and others

Absolutely not.  God uses His Word to teach people.  He uses the five fold ministry to teach people.  God does NOT use sickness to teach people.

There is no recording of Jesus teaching people with sickness in the Bible.  As we have talked about Matthew 9, let’s keep talking about it.  Jesus asked the men if they had faith, they said yes, and He said they were healed because of their faith.

Now Jesus didn’t ask if they were born again, if they spoke in tongues, if they were nice people.  He didn’t even ask if they have faith in Him as Messiah, if they believed in the Trinity, if they believed in substitionary penal atonement.  No – He asked: “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”  The girl in this video has faith that Jesus is Lord, faith that the Trinity is correct, faith in a lot of things.

Does she believe that Jesus can heal her completely and totally because of His love and mercy?  Not at all.  Jesus is saying the same thing to her that He said to the blind men: “According to your faith, be it done unto you.”  Her faith that God will comfort her in her last days means that she will be comforted.  If at any point she changes her faith to believe that He heals all our diseases, then she can walk in divine health.

Jesus did not put the cancer on her.  God is NOT the source of cancer and cancer is not educative.  People do not learn from cancer.  It is not an instructor it is a destroyer. Jesus never said to the blind men: hey, God wants you blind, and come here let me put some cancer on you as well there is still stuff you need to know.  If you believe cancer is an instructor, go and strap some plutoninium to your chest, go and start smoking 60 a day, stop eating green leaf vegetables.  If you believe blindness is didactic, go and gouge your eyes out with a spoon.

Or get with the programme, and believe and receive your healing!

Goodness – don’t you know God is LOVE.  Love does not give someone cancer to teach them a lesson.  It patiently instructs people.  God is our Father, not some maniacal despot who wants everything His own way or He wipes people out to get His own way.  God is a loving Father. If His son asks for bread, He will never give them a stone.  If we ask for healing, He will never give us cancer.

(4) Have people been strengthened in their faith because of this illness?

No.  Jim suggests that people who are not strengthened in faith don’t have ears to hear.  I would like to mention the Scripture at this point: faith comes by hearing and hearing the testimony of someone dying of cancer.

Or maybe it doesn’t say that.  Maybe it says faith comes by hearing and hearing by the WORD OF GOD. My faith is strengthened as I hear the Word of God, not by testimonies.  Your faith isn’t even strengthened by hearing testimonies of people healed of cancer – you cannot get healing faith from a testimony but from the Word of God.

Her testimony might give people goose bumps, it might make them decide to struggle on, it might make them decide to be a bit more grateful for their health but it will never, ever, ever produce faith.  Anyone who thinks this strengthens faith simply does not know what faith is.

(5) Does her suffering bring good?

No.  It is not the kind of suffering mentioned in the Bible that brings good.  Suffering in the New Covenant is about being persecuted for bringing and teaching the Word of the living God.  Being stoned, being beat with sticks, being mercilesses persecuted wherever you go preaching the Word.

Sickness does not bring about good.  The Word of God is clear on this: Jesus went about doing good healing the sick (Acts 10.38).  Healing is good, sickness is bad.  Look at Deuteronomy 28, sickness is a curse, healing is a blessing.

Sickness steals, kills and destroys.   It does not bring life in abundance (see John 10.10).  That and that alone should tell any serious student of the Word the source of sickness.  Sickness is satanic, sickness is a curse, sickness is captivity – when God healed Job, the Bible says God turned his captivity.  Sickness is a bondage.  Sickness is bad.  Healing is good.

Jesus Christ took every sickness on the cross so that by His stripes we were healed (Matthew 8.16-17, 1 Peter 2.24).

(6) Is God being glorified through her illness?

No, not in the slightest.  God is in His fullness of glory in heaven.  We are taught to pray “Let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”  There is no sickness in heaven, therefore it is obvious the will of God is healing.  If sickness brings God glory why is there no sickness in heaven?  Why was Adam not created with cancer: seen as you think cancer is so intructive, maybe a bit of cancer would have helped Adam make the right choice in the garden.

Maybe God should have ripped Adam’s arms off and stopped him eating the forbidden fruit.  I mean if God is going to give someone cancer to teach them a lesson, why not?  One of the reasons Eve sinned according to 1 John is that she SAW the fruit was good to eat.  Why didn’t God create her blind?  Would that not have brought Him glory?

Of course not.  God teaches through His Word.  When Adam and Eve lost paradise and perfect health due to their sin and rebellion, Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price for the healing of every human on the planet.  He died our death, He bore our sins and He bore our diseases.  So that we could be alive, righteous and healthy.

If sickness brings God’s glory, are there angels with broken wings and angels full of cancer?

You know the answer is no.  You know that man was created healthy.  You know that in heaven there is no more sickness and you know that God’s will should be done on earth as it is in heaven.  God is glorified in healing the sick and changing lives, not letting a satanic thief cut down and destroy someone’s life prematurely.

(7) Will she be physically healed?

The choice is hers.  God said that He sets before us life and death.  Jesus said “According to your faith, it will be done to you.”

If she stops believing the traditional lies that have kept the church powerless for years and believes the simple truth that By His Stripes She Was Healed, then I can guarantee she will shake that cancer off and live a long and productive and fruitful life, with a testimony that will glorify God and a ministry that will bring faith as she teaches people the Word of God and how she found out that it brings healing and health to all her flesh.

If she continues to believe that God is not there to heal her and that God cannot be relied upon, then I do not foresee her healing manifesting.

Blessings,
Benjamin
