on Complete Healing
no warrant in Scripture for the common assumption that
if someone is still sick after prayer, or half healed or
two-thirds healed, it must be the mysterious will of God.
The whole truth is summed up in Revelation 21:5-7 (NKJV):
"Behold, I make all things new. . . . He who overcomes
shall inherit all things. . . ."
Scriptures like this are God’s Covenant Word, and He
will do what’s necessary to fulfill them, even if that
means giving one of His children a new gland or new teeth
(see below). The fact that "extreme" healings like
this rarely happen in the modern world is our fault, not His.
that He'd be more than willing
Like most moderns, I started my Christian walk
with a lot of sophisticated unbelief disguised as theology.
It took me years to flush that stuff out of my mind and
spirit, and to get to the point where I could simply ask God
for whatever I needed, confident that He’d be more than
willing to provide it.
A turning point for me was a visit, around the year 2000,
to a seminar conducted by Frances and Charles Hunter. When
the call came for people who needed healing I joined the
line, even though I was aware of nothing worse than a sore
toe. I admired Frances and I thought it’d be good to meet
her face to face.
new and better chapter in my faith-life
When my turn came, Frances asked me
a couple of questions, waved her hand in front of me, and
spoke a major physical change into my body. I dropped to the
floor under the power of God and lay there for a while,
thinking, "My, this feels good." When I got up
there was no doubt that I’d been "overhauled,"
even though I had no idea I needed major healing.
My experience at the Hunters’ conference began a new
and better chapter in my faith-life. About three months ago
I had a special reason to be grateful for the improvement. A
tooth on the lower left side of my mouth felt sensitive, and
the filling on top had lasted about nine years longer than
predicted. I was sure the dentist would prescribe a crown,
for a mere $1500 or so.
can expect total healing
I came before the Lord, asked Him to replace the
tooth, and went about my business. When my dentist examined
me a week later, he inquired whether I’d had some work
done on the lower left side of my mouth. "No," I
said, but he kept looking at me strangely and repeated his
question before I went home. To tell the truth, I didn’t
think much about any of this until I looked at my mouth in
the mirror before bedtime. The new tooth was there--smooth,
perfect in shape, and without the old filling.
Am I a special Christian, with special
privileges? No!! God has furnished all His
people with the very power Jesus used while He was on earth.
Every Christian has that power! You have it!
When you’ve confessed your sins, forgiven other people’s
sins, and gotten rid of any hostile spirits, you can expect total
healing of whatever ails you, no matter how impossible it
may seem by the world’s standards.
