The end times book -the Power of God's Word in Healing
The watchman was urged to read one testimony in this book during a prolonged struggle with back pain in which the watchman was unable to lie down and once lied down he was unable to get up. The pain came only when he tried to lie down or get up. He dreaded to sleep despite his tiredness. Once he manged to lie down and sleep he dreaded rising the following morning! It was a torment. He shared this with someone and she asked him to read one of the live testimonies in this book. He read obediently.
He read the detailed testimony of a man who had a terrible motor accident on 24th January 2011, in which he broke four broken bones: two ribs, his right shoulder blade and the humerus bone at the top part of his right arm. The man did not go for operation. Instead he relied on the word of God to heal him. He was completely healed of his external and internal injuries. The watchman had seen him personally a few days after his accident in the church and also after he was completely well. This time when he himself was in severe pain, he was urged to read this book again.
He read of how the man received word from the Lord and believed. He was healed accordingly, just the lord has promised in Psalm 107:20 “He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”
When the watchman read one verse, “For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones” (Ephesians 5:30), he knew the verse was sent for him. so he received and proclaimed this verse by faith over his own flesh and bone. He then went to sleep. He got up feeling significantly better. For the first time in about ten days he could rise up without having to struggle in bed for about an hour! After he repeated this action of faith for a few times, he woke one day and found that he was completely healed!
Today someone again asked him to read all the testimonies again carefully. He believes this message is from the Lord. More and more people he knows are suffering all sorts of symptoms (many of which could not be traced to any identifiable diseases). A brethren in Christ suffers from exactly the same unusual pain at the same spot and the pain moves in the same direction as another brethren suffers. The two persons are in two entirely different professions and have very different lifestyle. It is not an occupational or lifestyle disease! In both cases, the use of the word of God relieves and heals.
___________________Here are some excerps from the book:
From the back cover: He sent His word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. (Psalm 107:20)
If only God’s people knew the power of God’s word. How differently they would live.
By His word, God created the heavens (Psalm 33:6); by the word of His power, Yeshua upholds all things (Heb 1:3). The word of God is life and spirit (John 6:63) and it is truth that sets us free and sanctifies us (John 8:32;17:17). The word of God is quick, powerful and sharp (Heb 4:12). It has the power to transform lives.
__________From Chapter One- The power of the word provided:
Real power is in the word of God.
Matthew 8:5-10 (NKJV) Jesus Heals a Centurion’s Servant 5 Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, 6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.” 7 And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. 13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour.
The centurion just believed in Yeshua (Jesus) speaking a word and his servant was healed that same hour. What happened when the centurion chose to believe that there was power in just a word from Yeshua? He experienced the miracle of God for the healing of his servant.
—————————————————–As He (Jesus) taught, a man with an unclean spirit manifested. Just listening to Yeshua caused the enemy to tremble. Yeshua cast out the spirit and the man was set free.
Who was Yeshua that spoke with such authority that even unclean spirits obeyed Him?
Yeshua, the Son of God is also called the Word of God. The Word of God is God. (John 1:1, 14; Rev 19:13)
He sent His word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. (Psalm 107:20)
I believe that God is saying that He sent His Son Who is the Word of God to heal and to deliver. The only way to God’s healing is through the Son… God’s way of healing is always perfect and the best. Only He can bring real and complete healing to people and to nations through his spoken and written word, by the Spirit.
Only God can heal the total man.
Why is there no complete healing apart from the cross and the word of God? Firstly, the world’s healing is focused only on the physical realm, that is, only on the body. But the healing from God is complete because it deals with the total man. Man is made up more than the body. He is body, soul and spirit.
—————————–Excerpts from testimonies in this book:
“The Spoken Word of God Brings Healing” (by sister Faith)
I lay in a pool of blood with my arm broken. One end of the broken bone, about two inches long, stuck out from the bend in my left elbow. I didn’t scream or cry as I found comfort and peace in the Lord.
When my husband returned home he asked me what I wanted done.
I said, ‘Yes, I want to be in the church.’..as I insisted..he reluctantly brought me there. During the drive…a passage from Ezekiel 37 kept coming to my mind,speaking to me afresh. It was about how dry bones lived. But I told the Lord, “My bone is not dry; it is alive.” I just kept claiming the word of God for my condition. Ezekiel had commanded the bones to join back and the Lord had revived them into a great army.
I had had awesome encounters with God’s healing power before, which was why I decided not to go to the hospital. It was not about how big or small my faith was; it was about believing the word of God could bring healing, including joining broken bones.
Thus, when my arm broke on 20th February 2010, I simply surrendered my life to Him (Yeshua). I felt so secure in Him.
She (Pastor) told me to tell the enemy that in spite of my condition I would still lift up my hands and worship God. I did just that.
AS Pastor prayed and commanded the protruding bone to go back into my arm, it went back in an an inch! We saw the miracle taking place before our very own eyes. My own family was there to witness the whole process.
Later, Pastor asked me to pray and command the snapped bones to align and connect again. She reminded me that God had in His word given us the authority even to speak to bones.
I continued to command my bones to heal, basing my faith in the word of God, and its power to heal. On 2 March 2010, the bone went in completely. No more did any bone stick out from my flesh.
Between 16-29 September 2010, another amazing thing happened. A small fragment of bone came out of the bend of my elbow little by little and eventually, on 28 September, it dropped off and the next day, the hole completely closed.
I was practically pain-free from the time of my fall…till the day the bone went in completely and the hole in my flesh closed.
I believed that Yeshua had already paid the price for our sin and taken our pain at Calvary, we can defeat pain today without taking any painkiller.
It was also incredible that I had an open wound all that time and never suffered any infection. Through out the entire experience, I did not use any sling, cotton gauze or bandage. I did not go for therapy or do arm exercise.
As the word of God in Isaiah 53:4-5 states:
4 Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
The Lord Yeshua did more than heal my physical body, He also restored my marriage.
All the miracles that we encountered transformed our lives, our walk with God and was made possible only by the power of His word and His promises in the Holy Bible.
