Originally there was no death and no sickness in the Garden of Eden. Spiritual
death came after Adam and Eve had sinned against God and physical death followed. “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death
spread to all men, because all sinned.” (Rom. 5:12) Humankind from then on was subject to diseases,
sicknesses, illnesses and physical deterioration. Sin, which is separation from
God, was the source of all kinds of deadly diseases.
Our Lord Jesus Christ demonstrated a correlation between sin and sickness when He said to the paralytic: “Son, your sins are forgiven you.” (Mk. 2:5) After
Jesus had healed a man who had an infirmity thirty eight years He said to him, “See, you have
been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.” (Jn.
It must be clearly understood that not all sicknesses and diseases are caused by personal sins, nevertheless many
are the result of poor lifestyles and eating habits. Eating unclean meats defiles
the believer’s body which is the “temple of God.” (Lev. 11:41-47; 1 Cor. 6:19-20; 3:16-17).
The Lord Jesus Christ heals through Casting out Demons
“God has anointed
Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the
devil, for God was with him.” (Acts 10:38)
It is clear that the Lord Jesus Christ was healing the sick that were “oppressed by the
devil”. Sickness was and is still caused by the devil who “oppresses”
the sick folks with it. “Then Satan went out from the presence
of the LORD, and struck Job with painful boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head.” (Job 2:7) The apostle Paul wrote, “a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger
of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure.” (2 Cor. 12:7)
The Lord Jesus Christ healed “a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years.” (Lk. 13:11) And when the Pharisees complained about Jesus healing the woman on a Sabbath day, He said to them,
“So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound; think of it; for eighteen
years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?” (Lk. 13:16) Christians need
to realize and accept the truth that sick folks with terminal illnesses and chronic diseases such as cancer have the “spirit of infirmity” and are bound by Satan. The spirit
of cancer can be cast out.
“As they went out, behold they brought to Him a man, mute and demon-possessed. And when the demon was cast out, the mute spoke.
And the multitudes marveled, saying, ‘It was never seen like this in Israel.”
“Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute;
and He healed him, so the blind and mute man both spoke and saw.” (Mt. 12:22)
The Lord Jesus Christ has given this same power and authority to all true ministers
of the Apostolic
“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and
if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.’ So then, after the LORD had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat
down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, the
LORD working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.”
Faith is important to Healing
Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, ‘Son of David, have mercy on us!’ And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, ‘Do you believe that I am able to do this?’ They said to Him, ‘Yes, Lord.’ Then He touched
their eyes, saying, ‘According to your faith let it be to you.’ And
their eyes were opened, And Jesus sternly warned them, saying, ‘See that no one knows it.’ But when they departed, they spread the news about Him in all that country.” (Mt. 9:27-31)
Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say
to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed, and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart,
but believes that those things he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says.
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”
said to him, ‘If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (Mk. 9:23)
is important to Healing
When a person has a terminal illness such as cancer there must be a daily personal prayer for healing. Although thousands of people on the Internet may be making intercessory prayers, yet
if the cancer patient does not personally pray for the healing, God will not heal that person.
This is serious!
Why is personal prayer so important to healing? It is because
God wants to deal with the cancer patient personally and directly. The personal
faith, personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and the personal sins are involved in the healing process. During Church services there is prayer in one accord, but while at home each and every believer must have
a personal and direct prayer to God constantly and consistently. Prayer is a
personal and spiritual communication with God. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the best
teacher of prayer and our best example in prayer. His counsel on how to conduct personal prayer is simple and concise:
"But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door,
pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly." (Mt. 6:6)
Here are five basic principles for personal prayer.
1. "When you pray" indicates there must be a time for personal prayer.
2. "Go into your room" indicates there must be a special place for prayer.
3. "Shut your door" indicates there must be absolute privacy in prayer.
4. "Pray to your Father" indicates prayer is directed
to our Father in heaven
5. "And your Father will reward you openly" indicates God answers
a personal prayer.
Our Lord Jesus Christ also taught us to pray in His name. "Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you." (Jn. 16:23).
Testimonies for Healing of Cancer
Dr. Lorraine Day believes in God’s Power of
In the early 1990's Dr. Lorraine Day was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.
Her cancer doctor told her that if she did not accept the standard treatment of mastectomy, radiation or chemotherapy she
would die. She refused to believe she would die but sought after God’s help through fervent prayer and Bible study.
She chose to rebuild her immune system using the natural simple therapies designed by God and outlined in the Bible, so her
body could heal itself. Today, Dr Lorraine Day helps thousands of people learn how she did
it by following God's Ten Natural Health Laws.

Cancer can be healed by following God's Ten Natural Health Laws
Faith and Positive Outlook is Essential for Healing
A Recuperation Program for Acute Cancer Patients
HEALING, GOD'S WAY
By Dr. Michael Casey
In the Holy Bible we discovered that the
Lord desires to heal all our diseases. We read in Psalm 103: 3-5 the promise of the Lord, "Who forgiveth all thine iniquities;
who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's." His desire is that we "prosper
and be in health even as our souls prosper." 3 John 2. Jesus longs to heal and restore His created beings to what was
lost through sin. He presents the gift of healing but few take it. He wants to restore us back to health from
the diseases that are in such epidemic proportions.
I remember a lady whom we will call Janis.
Janis started experiencing pain in the right side of her diaphragm at the lower portion of the rib cage. At first she
ignored the pain, thinking it would pass. After a few months, with incredible pain, she made an appointment with her
family doctor. He put her through a battery of tests and afterwards referred Janis to a specialist. Once again
she had to go through more tests, costing thousands and thousands of dollars. When the results of the tests came back,
she was given a diagnosis of cancer involving the liver. The doctor also told her that he was concerned that it was
beginning to spread to other organs of the body. Fear gripped Janis at that moment. Because of various circumstances
she had always feared that she would someday have cancer. Now came the grim reality that the fear had finally come upon
"Doctor," she gasped, "What can I do? Is
there any treatment that I can take? Please, give me some hope!"
"I would recommend starting chemotherapy
as soon as possible. We might even be able to use radiation to slow down the growth of the cancer," he unfeelingly replied.
"Doctor, am I going to die?" "Well," he hesitated momentarily before he spoke. "I think you could live at least 18 months;
maybe even a little longer."
At that moment Janis felt that a literal
death sentence had been pronounced upon her. Her hopes, her dreams and her life were virtually over. There was
no more hope as the countdown began. Soon she would start chemotherapy and would have to face the reality of the devastating
side effects of the poisonous mixture that would include not only extreme nausea, but also the loss of her beautiful hair.
Once Janis returned home, she found her
calendar and started marking off 18 months. There was so much she wanted to do with her life, she thought as she dried
her tears and sent a prayer to the Lord. "Lord," she pleaded, "Let me live!"
Janis' husband, Tim, was also devastated
by the news. That night they discussed what plan of treatment they should pursue.
"I know of people who have been healed of
cancer using juicing and other means," Tim pondered.
Overhearing his remark, Janis questioned.
"Will it work for me? I'm afraid. Maybe chemotherapy would be better. After all, surely the doctor knows what
is best for me."
The decision was made. They would
go the conventional route, using the chemotherapy. And so the treatments began.
As time passed, hope was put aside for despair.
Janis' life was filled with pain and a growing dependence upon others. She weakened, not only physically, but also mentally.
She was also starting to give up.
I ask you, the reader. Is this God's way
of healing, through poisonous drugs and burning radiation? The answer is of course, NO. The Lord has only one approved
method. It is far from man's way with his pagan poisons and magical so-called remedies, which may seem to work for a
time, but fail in the end. God's ways never fail, but we have the responsibility to follow His plan in order for it
to be effective in our lives. When Janis lost hope, she lost her connection with the Lord.
I am reminded of another lady who was diagnosed
with a crippling disease when she was only 19 years of age. Hilda was a bright student and wanted to serve the Lord.
Her education was geared for ministry in music, as she loved to sing songs of praise to her Creator. When the doctor
told her she had a rare disease and would be stooped, eventually becoming crippled, her future plans seemed dismal.
She went home and cried out to the Lord. After a few days, her decision was made. "I will follow the Lord's health
plan, not man's." Even though the pain was still with her, Hilda had a peace that filled her soul.
Over the next few months, Hilda's condition
seemed to worsen. But the more severe the pain, the more she depended upon the Lord God. She had read in James
1:6, "Let him ask in faith, nothing wavering." There was no wavering in this young woman. She held fast to the
Lord's promises and followed all His health laws which included; eating natural foods, exercising, resting, drinking plenty
of water, getting out in the sunshine and fresh air, staying away from anything that would be harmful and depending entirely
upon her Saviour, Jesus.
Everyday Hilda prayed reciting the promises
in the word of God. Such promises as found in Mark 11:24. "Therefore I say unto you, What things so ever ye desire,
when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." She believed her health would be restored.
After all, Jesus said, "Whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." Matt 21:22.
One day Hilda woke up to find the symptoms
were gone. The disease considered incurable, was gone. Hilda was healed! What joy filled that family as
they praised the Lord.
Years had passed since her diagnosis, yet
Hilda held on to the promises of God. I believe the Lord tests individuals to see how much they truly trust Him.
Will they do the right thing or take the easy way out giving the responsibility of their health to a stranger?
In order to have health we must not be driven
by fear, anger, resentment or distrust. We need to be filled with hope, love, peace and joy, trusting in our Saviour.
This trust cannot fail.
Most of us know the story of Dr. Lorraine
Day and her fight against cancer. She, like Hilda, held on and trusted the Lord, reminding Him constantly of His many
promises to heal. I think of Philippians 4:19, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory
by Christ Jesus." Jesus created this world and everything in it. He created man. He knows us so intricately,
thus knowing the best way for our bodies to heal. He can be the only true Healer. We were formed from the dust
of the earth with such things as vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids. They are found in plants or their
fruits, which obtain these elements from the dust of the earth. When we eat the live plant, we are given what we need
for health. Man comes along and takes certain chemicals out of the plant. He refines them, thus changing the balance
that God originally created in that plant. Then man calls it medicine and wonders why it becomes such a poison to the
People give up on the Lord's method because
of impatience. We live in a fast-fix society; taking a pill for instant relief, covering up the symptoms so that we
feel good. Someday we will have to pay the price for that impatience. We are told in Psalm 40:1, "I waited patiently
for the Lord; and he inclined unto me and heard my cry." Hilda waited patiently; Dr. Lorraine Day waited patiently upon the
Lord and they both received the promised healing. They did not think it "…strange concerning the fiery trial which
is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: but rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings;
that, when his glory shall be revealed, he may be glad also with exceeding joy." 1 Peter 4:12,13.
The Lord allows illness. If he desired,
He could prevent it, but he also works on the law of cause and effect. We have to take the responsibility to change
the habits that are causing these diseases. In many cases, illness or injury brings the sufferer to Jesus. What
a blessing! Wouldn't it be better to go through these trials now -- the trials that bring us to Jesus --and have eternal
life, than to have comfort now and miss out on our salvation? I believe many will be in the Kingdom because they needed the
"Great Physician," and learned to know and trust Him through their illness.
Too often we put Jesus aside and put our
trust in a doctor or a medicine. For a time we feel better and think we are cured, only to have something worse come upon
us. Our only safety is in Jesus and His method of true healing.
A few months ago we met a couple in our
community. We would see them on occasion and exchange nice greetings. Not much happened beyond these casual exchanges
until about two months ago when the lady started experiencing pain in her lower abdomen. She was examined by a number
of specialists and after several MRIs and other diagnostic testing, was found to be full of tumors. One tumor had grown
to the size of a large grapefruit. The prognosis and future was grim. Surgery was scheduled and fear filled her and
her husband, alike. All of a sudden they became interested in our health work and desired to have a re-acquaintance
with their Lord, Jesus. We spent time encouraging them to give up coffee, tobacco and meat. How important the
laws of health are. Most importantly, we prayed. We prayed with them and then continued to hold them up to the
Lord in prayer. We prayed individually. We prayed as a staff and as a church. We also know that many around the
country were praying for her. Last week she went in for surgery. This was a choice they felt they had to make.
When the doctors opened her, all the tumors were gone!! Praise God!! -- she was healed; no cancer was found!
The doctors were filled with wonderment realizing that this was a miracle.
God wants to heal you. First, to be
healed of all sin, and then of the physical and mental maladies of which you may be suffering. You could then be like
the woman we just mentioned, being healed instantly, or like Hilda or Dr. Day where you may have to be patient and wait on
the Lord, following day by day the health plan He has given to us. Whichever way, you will be blessed if you follow
Jesus. Healing only comes through Him. We are praying that you will accept Christ fully into your life, committing your
health totally to Him to teach you the best ways to take care of your body. This is the only way to have HEALING, GOD'S

Hal Weeks had cancer at the age of fifty eight. When he prayed a great miracle occurred in his life.
He was healed completely by the power of Jesus Christ
MY MEDICAL DATA
My name is Hal Weeks. I first discovered I had cancer when I was fifty-eight years old. The prognosis
was a thirty-five percent chance of survival for five years. But God had other plans. I am now ninety. This is the story of
this miracle which occurred without any medical intervention other than diagnosis. Although originally it was treated with
cobalt for a period of twenty-one days, as it turned out, it did not heal me. About four years later I discovered several
nodes in my neck and under my right armpit that seemed to be growing. In August, 1977, at the age of sixty-four, a large node
was removed from my right armpit. It was diagnosed as a poorly differentiated nodular lymphoma. I was then referred to an
oncologist for treatment. However, he agreed to defer any treatment on the basis of my belief that I would be divinely healed.
I was scheduled to return in three months. When I returned, he could find no evidence of the cancer. He said, "If I were examining
you for the first time, I would have diagnosed you as not having the disease." I continued having periodic checkups until
August, 1982, at age 69, at which time he transferred me back to my family doctor. Then in 1995 I discovered two large lumps
over the right collarbone. I did not have a biopsy since I did not plan to have medical intervention and the surgeon said
there would therefore be no point in it. Again, I turned it over to the Lord. After six months during which time the tumors
increased in size and number, I began to have second thoughts about not seeking medical help. As clearly as I have ever heard
the Lord "speak", He said "I thought you had turned it over to me." I repented of my concerns and again trusted God for a
healing. It stopped getting worse for two months, at which time the Lord said it would be gone in three months -- and it was.
Since then I have had many other conditions healed, again without medical intervention. There has been no further reoccurrence
of the cancer.
This is not to say we should not seek medical help. I have and do use the resources of medical
science on occasion.
Having always believed in prayer, I had been asking God to heal me all during the course of this
disease. However, since I had not revealed my condition to more than a couple of friends, I had not received much -- if any
-- general prayer. For several years, I did believe I had been healed and I did receive what the doctors called a marvelous
remission. But with the recurrence in August, 1977, and a diagnosis that the condition was now more advance, I became deeply
troubled. At that time, a friend of mine invited me to attend a Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship dinner. Their emotional
behavior turned me off so I decided to "lay a fleece" before the Lord. I said, "Lord, if this is something you want me to
get involved in, heal my back." (I had a back problem that was causing me pain at the time) Immediately the pain left and
my back was healed. This was the deciding factor in my seeking the experience known in charismatic and Pentecostal circles
as the baptism in the Holy Spirit. I was prayed for to receive this at a Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship meeting on August
18, 1977, at the age of 64. Nothing seemed to happen at the time, but I was assured I had received this baptism and I thanked
God for His gift. At about 10:30 the following Saturday evening, while in bed reading some healing testimonies and reflecting
on them, my attention was drawn to a strange tingling sensation in my right arm. This subsided but shortly I noticed the same
sensation on the side of my face. As I began to rub my face and neck, I felt a sort of electrifying of my right arm. I remember
exclaiming, "Lord, your hand is holding my hand." Immediately, waves of an indescribable sense of the power of God began to
sweep through my entire body. I have had similar sensations since but never again with that intensity or duration. For several
days afterwards, the power of God was so strong on me that I finally had to ask God to "lead me beside the still waters."
I did then experience some abatement for a time of rest, but this was the beginning of a whole new way of life and the beginning
of a new relationship with Jesus that I had never known before. At the time it was impressed on my mind that I had received
three prizes. The third prize was the healing of cancer; the second prize was the deliverance from spirits of fear and doubt;
and the first prize was going from knowing about Jesus to knowing Jesus in a personal way as my Lord. As to speaking in tongues,
although I had had no objections to doing so, I was not actively seeking to do so. About a month later I woke up in the middle
of the night and felt the power of God come over me. An inaudible voice said to me, "speak." When I did I began to speak in
tongues. For a time I found myself changing the language I was using. Now I randomly speak in many different tongues, although
I do not have the gift of interpretation of tongue.
Although medical science classifies this as a spontaneous remission, I claim it as a divine healing.
UPDATE TO MY TESTIMONY
I am now ninety years old and still have not had any evidence of the return of cancer.
However, I did have congestive heart failure several months ago that has resulted in my now taking
medication. My heart is doing fine and the prognosis for my condition is over five years survival rate. However, the medication
side-affects have caused me some unsteadiness on my feet . This is manageable so I am still able to continues teaching my
class on healing. In addition, I am experiencing many blessing from the responses I am receiving from those who have visited
Some have wondered why I have not just prayed about my heart condition like I did for my cancer
and have it healed. Actually, I just turned it over to the Holy Spirit and asked Him what I should do. He said to continue
the medication. In fact, I now -- having given him my body -- just turn my physical needs of to Him to do whatever is His
plan. some things have been healed; some things have not. Blessed is the name of the Lord. I believe some thing may not be
healed to keep us mindful that we do not do the healing.
I continue to see others healed through my prayers, as well as through those who have followed
our teaching on "How to heal the sick" I have told the Lord I am more than satisfied with the lifespan He has already given
me, but He says this is not my time and I am to continue in ministry several more years. He has told me my leaving this "vale
of tears" will be peaceful and without trauma. Who could ask for any more than that?

A young lady was healed from
cancer by the power of God.

I am twenty six year old lady. I would like to testify before everyone, how Jesus healed me. My
illness began about three years ago. Initially I had severe pain in my legs, and I began ayurvedic treatment and later tried
many other medicines. But all in vain. My pain increased day by day. A doctor suggested that I take an MRI scan, and from
that my illness was revealed. It was cancer of the spine. I went to the cancer research center at Trivandrum for treatment. First an operation was done on my spine, to take out one big lump
on my spine, and there were 5 such lumps. After confirming that I had cancer, they began chemotherapy. After each chemo I
suffered a lot. There were a lot of side effects as well. During these times of suffering, God gave me great courage and strength
to sustain me. My family were also praying for me all these time. In about a year, the chemotherapy and treatment was over.
On the doctor’s advice we took the MRI scan and got the same result as before. There was absolutely no change at all.
Then the doctors suggested that I take radiation. But even after this, I had severe pain in my legs. I was taking injections
to relieve a pain that refused to go away. The pain killers did not reveal my pain.
It was in this hopeless and desperate situation, that I happened to attend a retreat conducted
by a pastor in our place. On the second day of the retreat, I felt a severe pain in my legs, and the pastor prayed for me.
The very next day, while the praise and worship was going on, I felt a great heaviness in my legs and heard the pastor saying
that God is healing a young woman, who is having Cancer in the spine, and my name was also called out. After the retreat,
we took the MRI scan and the result showed that I am completely healed. There were no signs of my earlier disease.
Now two years have elapsed, and I am in good health. From the retreat onwards, I humbled myself
before Jesus, and submitted my life to Him. I submitted all my earlier beliefs and traditions to which I was holding on, and
received Jesus as my only Savior and Lord. I give a million thanks and praise to my Lord Jesus for healing me. It was Christ
who said “It is not medicine or ointment, but my words that has cured you!” who by his wounds cured me. All praise
and glory and honour in the name of Jesus. Thank you Jesus, praise you Jesus, glory to be to your name ..
