Thank You Brothers!
What an awesome and all powerful God it is that we serve. Jesus Christ carried our sins to the cross. His Holy Word tells us that he also carried our diseases to the cross. He suffered our sickness and illnesses and bore the stripes that we were healed. Praise God!
In October of 2012 I awoke one morning with double vission in both eyes. I was unable to walk without assistance. I could no longer read my blble nor any printed material. Watching the TV woud cause me to be nauseated from all of the movement, because I could not focus my eyes. My eye doctor said to me, "John I don't find anything wrong with your eyes, you need to see a physician".
My physician did some blood work and found that I was severely diabetic. My A1C was 11.3 with normal being 5.5.
He placed me on a pill for type ll diabetes, as he was trying to keep me off of insulin injections. My vision did not return for 2 months. This was very difficult for me in many ways, but especially in my bible study and ministry.
I spent my days recalling my favorite scriptures from memory. I professed my healing all the day long. When my sight returned, it was as good as it ever was. I gave God all of the praise and glory for my healing. I continued to deal with the diabetes.
In March of 2013 my sight had been back for about six weeks and we were packing for a move from Alabama to Tennessee. We had about half of our belongings moved into the home in Tennessee.
On March the 25th at about 9:10 am I suffered a major heart attack at the Tennessee home that we were moving into. Kathy my wife called 911, and I was carried to a local hospital in Winchester, Tn. There the doctors administered a clot bursting drug to me, in an attempt to break up the blood clot or clots which were causing my heart attack. I was then flown by helicopter to St Thomas Medical Center in Nashville, Tn.
I would like to thank the excellent and caring staff, both hospital and paramedics who got me there and who took such good care of me.
After four stints in the right coronary artery of my heart, I was in a 2nd and 3rd degree heart block rhythm. This rhythm can be fatal if it persists.
One of my three cardiologists scheduled me for a pacemaker at 6 am on a Friday. I prayed night and day not to have need of the pacemaker. At 4 am on that Friday morning the ICU heart monitoring nurses ordered an EKG to be performed on me.
My doctor came in at 5:30 am, and told me that my heart was out of the 3rd degree heart block that I had been in for three days now. He said the pacemaker would not be needed, and that he believed that I would stay out of that rhythm.
But, that I was still in the 2nd degree heart block, and I probably would be for the rest of my life. I was to limit my activity and not lift over 10 pounds of weight. He wanted to see me in 1 week, I was discharged on March 29, 2013.
I visited my Cardiologist in one week, and then in two weeks, and then monthly. I was continuing to go back and forth from a second degree heart block to a third degree heart block which is also called a complete heart block.
I read the healing scriptures of God's Holy Word both day and night. I stood on his promises even when I felt no better. I was week from the 2nd degree heart block rhythm that I had now been in for seven weeks. I could do no work, and walk only on a flat surface for 5 to 10 minutes each day with my wife accompanying me.
I did not waver in my faith of being healed, even when well meaning friends, and family would speak sickness and disease into my live. I continuously spoke the holy word of God into my life.
The doctors at St . Thomas had also placed me on Insulin for diabetes. Because of my heart rhythm.
My sweet and loving wife had to ask for help from family to complete the move. I can not tell you how helpless I felt, not being able to help her, and her family to complete this move.
In 2013, I have dealt with the double vision. Diabetes. A bad heart attack. And now I am finishing off this year with shingles.
My wife Kathy has had a bacterial infection that her doctors have spent over 2 months treating, and continues to treat.
Because of my being unable to work for two months to supplement our social security income we have now moved into a furnished apartment.
I say all of this, in order to say to you, that Kathy and I have grown spiritually more this year than at anytime in our years of walking with Christ Jesus.
Was it joyous? Absolutely not!
Did we exercise and walk in faith every day? Yes, yes, yes!
Did we come through this year knowing that the Lord our God loves us? More than I could ever express! YES!
I spent every waking moment in prayer. Reading all of the many healing scriptures of the Holy Word of God.
Brothers, keep your faith, and feed your body, heart, soul and spirit with the mind renewing word of God. As you go through the trials in this life you will come out on the other side a much better child of God, desiring to serve him in any, and every way that he wishes for you to do.
Proverbs Chapter 3 says. He will correct those that he loves. It says for us not to grow weary or worry when he is correcting us his children for he corrects those that he loves. Praise God!
I took my healing, it's not enough just to see the words, you must take them into your heart, mind, and soul and also speak them aloud for your ears to hear. Jesus gives healing to us just as He gave us our salvation. We did not have to do anything to have our salvation. We only had to invite him into our hearts, and believe that he was the only way to eternal live. We must also believe in our hearts that we are healed. We don't have to pay for this healing in any way. We only have to take our healing by faith just as we took our salvation. Jesus did all of the work necessary for both our salvation, and our healing. Praise God!!!!!!!!!
After you take your healing you must then keep it. Some time this is the hardest part, if our healing is not instant. Even though your symptoms persist you must keep walking in faith by knowing that God's holy word is true. We are told many times in the bible that 'by His stripes we were healed'.
Brothers, please believe, and receive God's promise to you. We are also told, 'that God can not lie'. He said that we were healed. Were is past tense my friends, it has already been given to us. Take it, believe it, and keep walking in your healing. If you keep His word in your eyes, ears and mouth, you will always be victorious. 'No sword formed against you shall prosper' so says the holy word of God.
The devil will use almost everyone that you know or come in contact with to speak sickness and even death into your life.
These well meaning friends, and some time family members who do not mean any ill will in what they say, they are just repeating what the world has taught them, and the god of this world is not our God. The God of this world is Satan.
Brothers, do not receive what others say to you or about you, but rather receive only the word of God into your heart and mind, and only agree with those brothers who agree with you for your healing. Don't go by what you feel or what you see, because your healing is coming to you even if you don't see it at this time. This is called faith my friends. It is yours, so keep walking in faith no matter what.
We do not walk in faith by what we see happening, or by what we here others say to us, or by anything or any situation that we are enduring at the present time. God will deliver us through every thing that this world can throw at us. Stay in his word every day and receive his blessing that he has for you.
We as children of God are in this world, but we are not of this world. I know so many brothers in Christ Jesus who unfortunately accept what the world speaks into their lives.
Brothers this should not be. Don't take the worlds word for anything. Keep your faith always. We do have to live in this world until Jesus appears to take us home to be with He and the Father, but we should never, never walk as the world walks, without faith in God.
Brothers I visited my heart physicians six days after discharge from the hospital, seven days later, ten days later, and two weeks later. Each time I would ask them if I could do work around my home. They kept me limited to picking up no more than 10 pounds of weight. They said that I was still in an undesirable heart rhythm, and that I might not ever be able to do anything again.
I said aloud. "This is not true, I am being healed even as we speak, Praise God"! The doctor looked at me strangely, but said nothing about my comment.
Soon after I said this to my physician, I awoke one morning feeling better than I could remember feeling. I praised God, and continued reading His healing scriptures into my life. I went about doing a little more activity and a little more each day.
I returned to the doctor 10 days later. He asked how I felt as he came into the room. I said, "I feel great," and begin to tell him that this began 10 days earlier. I said to him, "I am back in a normal rhythm. I want you to do an EKG on me so you can know also, that I am healed of any heart problems what so ever.
He looked at me like I was crazy, and reluctantly said, "Ok John I'll order an EKG as he left the room. He said that he would return after he had looked at the EKG.
About ten minutes afterwards he cracked open the door, and said you are right John your rhythm has changed back to normal, and he started to close the door.
I said, "wait doc," and just as I had asked many times before,' I said, can I go back to work now", and he said with a smile on his face. John you can do whatever you want to do, I don't see anything wrong with your heart. Come back and see me in six months".
"Glory be to God & Praise my Lord Jesus! "
Brothers I have not quit praising God for my healing. I had a bad heart attack, and the doctors did not believe I would ever improve.
My friends and some family members would speak negative words about my condition and prognosis. I REFUSED TO ACCEPT ANYONE'S OPINION EXCEPT THE WORK OF GOD.
I am sure that many of you prayed for me as well, many family members, and friends, and my church brothers also. I am a blessed man.
I have much work to do in this ministry that God has given me. I do now and will continue to do His work every day until his appearing.
Brothers as Jesus said in Mark 11:22 "Have faith in God". No matter what your needs are, be it Healing, Faith, Knowledge, Wisdom, or Understanding about a particular thing in your life, Financial, are anything else. There is one who will do all for you, if you only read his promises into your life. Keep reading aloud. I still read these healing scriptures.
Please stand on the Holy Word of God for all of your needs. Read it aloud, take that word, keep that word, and walk in it every day.
Let me say one final thing. Thank God we as his children are not subject to anything that anyone else says to us or about us. We are only subject to what we ourselves speak into our lives, or what we receive that others speak into our lives.
Brothers speak only good things into your life. Positive, faith building words, and be healed of all things in your life, not just sickness or disease.
Do not receive the words of a non believing brother, or the words of this lost and dying world.
God Bless each of you and if I can pray with you about anything just email me and I will add you to my prayer list. You, I, and Jesus together will have our petition heard by the Father. We will walk in faith together.
Heavenly Father, I read the truth of your Holy Word this hour. I believe that I receive in my heart and soul my physical healing. I thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for his truth of my healing. He told me that He bore the stripes that I was healed. That he carried all of my diseases to the cross along with all of my sicknesses, illnesses, pains, infirmities, and sufferings. Just as surly as he bore my sins and the sins of this world he also bore all of these curses for me and you.
I receive my healing right now, I know that I am healed right now. I will not listen to what I feel or what I hear, but rather I walk in faith knowing that my petitions have been made to the Father by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
His word is true and just, and I stand on, and walk in the truth of the Holy Word of God. I give you all the praise and glory for my health and my salvation.
I take my healing and all my blessings from you Jesus. I receive them unto myself. I keep them no matter what the world says, and I walk in my healing every single day reading the truth of your Holy Word.
It is mine. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen. (Brothers Amen means I receive. So every time that you pray about anything, when you say Amen at the end of your prayer see that prayer being received, and stand on his promise by faith.)
Hear are some scriptures, read these aloud:

Psalm 107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
