Infection Healed

The Lord Jesus Christ never fails. His word is eternal. He is the same divine healer today that he was yesterday.

The Inception of the Infection

I don’t know how it happened. It started as a sore spot. It felt like a mild burn. I first thought that maybe I had scalded it when I was getting the bath ready for the kids. But it wasn’t a burn, it was an infection along the nail bed of my left ring finger.

At first the infection seemed mild; a small blister. There was slight discomfort but it did not look like a problem. I figured it would go away after a day or two. I had to go out of town for a trade show. At the show I banged the finger a few times while setting up and taking down the equipment. The infection was bruised and grew worse.

After a few days it encompassed half of the top of the finger and had worked its way into the nail bed. I soaked it as you would think to and applied a bread poultice. The infection exploded out the side.

Then it got worse again so I applied another poultice. And again the infection expoded.

All the while people kept preaching fear to me. They were telling me that I was going to lose my finger. They said I would get blood poison and die. Someone even went so far as to offer me their prescription of antibiotics that a doctor had given them earlier for something else. Instead of listening to the council of man, I took the council of God. I knew that the moment I visited a doctor, that I took the first pill, any healing would automatically be attributed to that and the Lord would be ignored.

The Cure: Divine Healing from Jesus Christ

I turned it over to the Lord. The infection went away. The old dead skin sloughed off and fresh new pink skin was left in place.

Jesus told us that healing is the bread of the children of God. We are the Bride of Christ if we have the Holy Spirit. If you don’t have the Holy Spirit, if you are not born again, if the Lord Jesus is not manifesting his holy word in your life in supernatural signs, wonders and miracles, then simply follow the prescription in the Bible in Acts 2:38-39 and you will receive the Holy Spirit and scriptures like James 5: 14-16 will be manifest in your life, as it was in mine.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and forever. His word cannot fail. Just trust in him no matter what the world tells you. Ignore anything contrary to the Word of God. If you trust in him with all your heart, all your mind, all your soul, you shall experience the resurrection power of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Spider Bite Healed

The Culprits

Black Widow Spider
Black Widow Spider

It happened a few years ago. We were living in Penticton, British Columbia, an area famous for nasty spiders. Both the brown recluse and the black widow are quite common there. We do not know what spider bit her. My daughter Sophia, who was 4 years old at the time, was bitten on the leg by a spider. I found out the next day.

The Bite

I measured the bite marks. The bite had a large red swollen area about 3 inches in diameter. There was a white center about one inch in diameter. And in the middle were two bright red, diamond shaped, fang marks about a quarter inch apart. That is one HUGE spider. At her age it took up the width of her leg. It was a very ugly and scary picture to see such a wound on a small child, especially when you know the damage is caused by a venom.

The Solution

Following the directions in James chapter 5 in the Bible, we prayed for her in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ as I anointed her with oil. Twenty minutes later there was no sign of the bite; it was completely gone.

Jesus Christ, the Lord of Glory, is the same yesterday today and forever. He does not change. He is not a respecter of persons. As such, if you come to  him according to his word as we did, then by his grace he will vindicate that word to you. Only believe, all things are possible, only believe.

Healed From High Blood Pressure

Eighteen months ago a nurse checked my blood pressure. It was 202 over 103. That is considered stage 4 hypertension.

I took the Lord Jesus Christ at his word. I obeyed James 5:14-16. I called the elders of the church and had them pray over me anointing me with oil in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. And having taken the Lord at his word I went my way rejoicing.

Today I had to take a medical for work. My blood pressure was 140 over 80 which is considered normal for my age. Glory and praise be to the name of Jesus Christ. He is the same yesterday today and forever. He was the healer 2,000 years ago and he is our healer today. By his stripes we were healed.

So I encourage you to trust in the Lord. Take him at his word by faith and go away rejoicing.

May the Lord God bless you richly.

Healing from a Systemic Blood Infection

Here is an example of the Power of the Almighty God, the Lord Jesus Christ.

It happened just over seven years ago now. My mother in law got a blood infection while she was at work. By the evening of the same day, she was in the hospital in intensive care, in a coma. We were called and drove to Edmonton.

When we got there a couple of days later, she was swollen up. Her arms and legs were black like a car tire, as was most of her face. All her internal organs had shut down and she was on life support machines. The doctor told us she had a 2% chance of living the week and if she did they would have to amputate her arms, legs and most of her face because the flesh was already dead and beginning to slough. A horrible sight indeed.

We waited until everyone left. My wife and I were alone with her in the room. It was 11:30 pm. I opened the Bible to James and read.

James 5: 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

We prayed as I anointed her with oil. Then we left and went to Denise’s sister’s house where we were staying. At 6:30 am the next morning we got a phone call from the hospital that she was awake. The charge nurse said that her blood infection went from lethal to non-detectable between two consecutive tests. Within two days they had turned off all the machines because all her organs had restarted. Her flesh began to restore over the next few weeks. She walked out of that hospital.

Now we know that God is no respecter of persons. If he will answer my prayer according to his word, then he MUST also answer yours under that same conditions, or he is unjust. If you take him at his word as we did, he will vindicate that word.
