A Gradual Healing
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. —MARK 16:17–18
Several years ago, I received a letter from a woman who had attended one of my meetings in Houston, Texas. She wrote, “I was healed of lung cancer at your meeting. Now I’m not saying that I was healed instantly; I wasn’t. But the manifestation began the moment you laid hands on me. I am a thirty-two-year-old mother of two young daughters, and my condition was very serious. In fact, the doctors expected me to live only a few weeks. I had multiple malignant tumors in my lungs.”
She continued, “Now I was skeptical of your tactics. Each night you laid hands on me [evidently, she got in the healing line every night], I felt nothing. And then the last night, you taught on Mark 16:15–18. I had never heard a sermon preached on that passage before. I believed what you said and asked God in the Name of Jesus to heal me. After that, I got in the healing line. And the moment you laid hands on me, I felt hot from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. [That was the healing power of God going into her.]”
The tumors were located in two places in her lungs. One tumor was large, and the other was smaller. A month after the healing power of God went into her, the large tumor was gone; the doctors couldn’t find it. And in another two months, the other tumor was gone. The doctors were baffled. They couldn’t understand it. But, you see, from the moment that hands were laid upon her, she began to amend (John 4:52). The rest of the letter stated that she was able to do all of her housework and mow the yard and that she felt wonderful!
Well, isn’t that just like our wonderful Jesus? Once this woman accepted the deathblow to that cancer, she began to recover. And over the course of time, the healing was manifested.
Confession: I receive the healing power of God into my body now, and I expect to recover. The healing power of God is working in my body to effect a healing and a cure.
